The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

Trump administration rolls back protections for transgender students Shouldnt that read Trump moves to protect girls from predators in bathrooms?

The Trump administration on Wednesday revoked federal protections for transgender students who sought the right to use the public school restrooms that match their gender identity, taking a stand on a contentious issue that has become the central battle over LGBT rights.

Officials with the federal Education and Justice departments notified the U.S. Supreme Court that it was ordering the nation’s schools to disregard memos the Obama administration issued during the past two years that said prohibiting transgender students from using facilities that align with their gender identity violates federal anti-discrimination laws.

ADVERTISING
The two-page “dear colleague” letter included in a Supreme Court filing late Wednesday does not offer schools any new guidance, instead saying that the earlier directive needed to be withdrawn because it lacked extensive legal analysis, did not go through a public vetting process and sowed confusion and legal challenges. The administration said that it would not rely on the prior interpretation of the law going forward.

The departments wrote that the Trump administration wants to “further and more completely consider the legal issues involved,” and said that there must be “due regard for the primary role of the States and local school districts in establishing educational policy.” Though it offered no clarity or direction to schools that have transgender students, the letter added that “schools must ensure that all students, including LGBT students, are able to learn and thrive in a safe environment.”

The decision — delayed in part because the new secretaries of the two departments hit stalemates regarding timing and specific language — drew immediate condemnation from gay and transgender rights advocates, who accused President Trump of violating past promises to support gay and transgender protections. Advocates said the withdrawal of the federal guidance will create another layer of confusion for schools and will leave transgender students, who are already vulnerable, even more so.

“Attacking our children … is no way to say you support and respect LGBTQ people,” said Mara Keisling, executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality.

Others said the practical effect on the nation’s schools would be muted, in part because a federal judge had already blocked the Obama guidance temporarily in response to a lawsuit from 13 states that argued it violated states’ rights. And it is possible the U.S. Supreme Court could settle the matter soon, as it plans to consider a Virginia case involving a transgender teenager who was barred from using the boys’ bathroom at his high school.

[Gavin Grimm just wanted to use the bathroom. He didn’t think the nation would debate it.]

The Trump administration’s move drew cheers from social conservatives who oppose the idea that a student can identify as a gender that differs from their anatomy at birth.

Vicki Wilson, the mother of a child at Fremd High School in Palatine, Ill., said she sympathizes with children who have “difficult personal issues” to deal with, but thinks that “young men shouldn’t be permitted to deal with those issues in an intimate setting like a locker room with young women.”

School district officials in Palatine, bowing to federal pressure, allowed a transgender girl to change in the girls’ locker room at her school. “No school should impose a policy like this against the will of so many parents,” Wilson said, speaking during a news conference organized by the Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian legal organization.

CNN's Chris Cuomo Suggests 12 Year Old Girls Are The Problem If They Don't Want To See A Male's Genitals In Locker Rooms

CNN’s Chris Cuomo thinks that a 12 year old little girl is the problem if she doesn’t want to be in a locker room with a male where he can expose his genitals to her. He also said that if her father had a problem with it, he is either overprotective or intolerant. There are no words for the level of degeneracy this man has sunk to. What kind of society do we have when it’s not even a priority to protect our daughters from sexual perversion?





Chris Cuomo received a lot of backlash for his tweet so he tried defending his position by saying that he has 2 daughters. He claims he has the same instinct to protect, however; he’s such a slave to his doxies that ‘equality’ for all eclipses logic. Equality means having your 12 year old daughters exposed to a male’s genitals at school. Unbelievable. Shame on you, Chris Cuomo.

You have to be demon possessed to go along with something so stupid

LIBERAL INSANITY: New Book ‘Toni The Tampon’ Teaches Children That Men Can Menstruate

Cass Clemmer, the author of The Adventures of Toni the Tampon, has been using her coloring book character to “destigmatize” menstruation. Now, however, she also wants to “de-gender” the female biological process and to persuade children that men get periods too.

The author of a children’s coloring book has invented a character named “Toni the Tampon” to instruct children that men can menstruate.

EDITOR’S NOTE: No words…speechless…bereft of speech. But suffice to say that this insanity, this clear-cut fundamental lunacy is indeed the actual platform of the new Democratic Left. Don’t like your gender? Pick a new one, or better yet, create a new one. Same-sex marriage? Sure! But don’t stop there, let’s add animals and inanimate objects. Bored with your life? Simply “identify” with something else, as someone else, as anything else, and  the LGBTQP will demand protect for it as your “human rights”.

Cass Clemmer, the author of The Adventures of Toni the Tampon, has been using her coloring book character to “destigmatize” menstruation. Now, however, she also wants to “de-gender” the female biological process and to persuade children that men get periods too.

Clemmer’s latest adventure of Toni the Tampon is one aspect of the progressive campaign to blur the differences between male and female, and to ultimately create a “genderless” society which bars the commonplace civic distinctions between biological males and biological females in a heterosexual society.

This larger political campaign is also pushing judges to permit men to change their legal sex by simply declaring they have a female “gender identity.” That ruling would allow men to freely use women’s shower rooms, women’s shelters, and women’s athletic leagues. The ideology also says that women with the “gender identity” of men should be described as men — even when they are menstruating.

The artist says Toni the Tampon purposely has a gender-ambiguous name because she hoped to create a coloring book that was “affirming to all menstruators.”

“I’d rather help just one genderqueer or trans menstruator feel like they were seen than sell a thousand copies only to reinforce the boundaries society draws by gendering periods in the first place,” she says.

The Washington, D.C.-based artist posted on Instagram:

    The right-wing media has attacked my #periodcoloringbook all week – calling it “child abuse” because it affirms trans and gender non conforming menstruators. In response, I am donating all profits from this week to the @translifeline If you stand with menstruators of all genders, please share this post. When they go low, we go high. In solidarity – Cass & Toni

Clemmer, who hails from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, developed her main character because she said she grew up in an environment in which sex was not discussed openly.

“I didn’t know what a uterus was, and I didn’t know where this blood was even coming from or why” she told Mashable recently. “The only thing I was taught was how to clean it up so the world didn’t see it — and then I was sent on my way to figure the rest out myself.”

“It’s a tough conversation to have with kids, especially when you consider that adults are often struggling with their own internalized period shame,” she added. “But hopefully, by opening up a fun and creative gateway to discussion, my period coloring book will help make that conversation a little easier.”

Other characters in the coloring book are named Marina the Menstrual Cup, Patrice the Pad, and a male character – Sebastian the Sponge.

“And, yes, men do get periods,” says Mashable.

Newsbusters adds other examples of how the “PC police” are cracking down on “gendered” terms:

    In August 2016, both The Atlantic and Cosmo ran articles on “chestfeeding,” the new inclusive name for breast-feeding. Because, you know, women aren’t the only ones who do it.

    The following month, Time highlighted the pregnancy of a transgender man named Evan who struggled to conceive, but finally gave birth to a son after ceasing hormone treatments.

    Even the radical feminist group Lady Parts Justice League got into hot water for its name. In an article for Slate, writer and activist Parker Molloy accused the group of “reinforcing biological essentialism, tying gender to genitals.”

“Although rational and scientific, the practice of biological essentialism offends a minute subset of the American people, and must therefore be eliminated – according to the liberal media, at least,” states Newsbusters.

Multiple polls show the transgender ideology is very unpopular. Read more about “gender identity” here. source

SAD: University Does Away With Homecoming King/Queen, And You'll Never Guess Why


The University of Minnesota has done away with their homecoming king and queen, opting instead to call them "royals," because "gender" is seen as "triggering" by some students. From Louder With Crowder: If we’ve learned anything from social justice warriors the past few years, it’s that they have lots of big problems. Specifically with… everything. Ready your eyeballs for their latest gripe: Homecoming Kings and Queens. Problem? The titles are rather gender-specific terms. I’m sure you can see where this is going… The University of Minnesota has become the latest university to do away with the traditional Homecoming King and Queen titles and replaces them with the gender-neutral “Royals” term. Taking it one step further, University of Minnesota officials also point out that winners don’t even have to be one biological male and one biological female, stating on its website: “‘Royals’ … can be any combination of any gender identity.” Rather than risk offending, they’re opting for “Genderless Royals.” Not to be confused with a Stephen King period piece… Though equally terrifying. In short, sometimes the Queen may be a dude in a dress, and other times the King may be a variation of a genderless amoeba. Thus, crowning the She-Beast and His Gayness as “King and Queen” may be uncomfortable for all parties. Instead, this is the solution the university came up with.

Target CEO Admits Bathroom Policy Announcement Was Huge Mistake

A very damaging article just out from the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) clearly shows that Target CEO Brian Cornell regrets his company's policy announcement welcoming men to use women's restrooms and fitting rooms.

WSJ interviewed a representative from the American Family Association (AFA), who launched the immensely successful #BoycottTarget initiative nearly a year ago. The 1.5 million-signature boycott has sent the strong message to the retailer that its misguided and potentially dangerous bathroom policy is the reason millions of families are no longer shopping there.

According to the article, Cornell expressed frustration about how the bathroom policy was publicized without his permission or knowledge, and told colleagues he wouldn't have approved the decision to flaunt it with a public statement that is still on Target's website today.

WSJ reported that Cornell told staff that "Target didn't adequately assess the risk, and the ensuing backlash [AFA boycott] was self-inflicted." (Read the entire WSJ article here; subscription required.)

The WSJ article also explained that Target headquarters sent an internal memo to store managers reiterating its official stance on men using women's facilities. On April 15, 2016, a group Target calls its "risk committee" emailed executives informing them of a plan to post that message publicly. Cornell wasn't among the recipients of that email, but at least two Target executives approved the post.

"The American Family Association Target boycott has wreaked internal havoc at Target," said AFA President Tim Wildmon. "Out-of-touch executives incorrectly assumed that the backlash would die down, but we can see today—with plummeting stock prices and decreased traffic in stores—that it certainly has not.

"Together we are making an unprecedented financial impact on a corporation whose policy is to allow men to use women's restrooms and dressing rooms," Wildmon added. "Target's decision is unacceptable for families, and its dangerous and misguided policy continues to put women and children in harm's way."

AFA is urging those concerned to the sign #BoycottTarget pledge by the end of April in order to reach an important threshold of 1.5 million signatures.

"At that point," Wildmon said, "I will personally return to Target headquarters in Minneapolis with an additional 500,000 names. I will then discuss how Target can invite 1.5 million AFA supporters back to its stores by having a common-sense bathroom and dressing room policy that links use of these rooms to a person's biological sex so that predators no longer have a method to prey on innocent victims."

AFA is offering several ways to reach 1.5 million #BoycottTarget signatures:

    Sign—#BoycottTarget pledge
    Share—Ask family, friends and church members to sign the pledge. One effective strategy is to voice concerns politely but firmly on Target's Facebook page and other social media sites using #BoycottTarget.
    Voice concerns on Target's Facebook page or call Target to politely let its executives know you've signed the#BoycottTarget pledge—Guest Relations, (800) 440-0680, option 1, then 1 again.

"As AFA has stated many times, our worries do not stem from fear of the transgender community," added Wildmon, "but rather, from both the real and potential threat that predators and voyeurs would take advantage of the Target bathroom policy to harm women and children—and there are plenty of incidents to show that they have."

Target Transgender Policy Causes Retail Chain to Take Major Financial Hit

 Target’s 2016 blog post about a policy regarding transgender customers started a boycott that has cost the company millions, and it was a post that wasn’t even approved by Target CEO Brian Cornell.

The post, which was published in April 2016, detailed Target’s policy that says transgender customers were welcome to use the bathroom or fitting room that matched their gender identity.

"Everyone deserves to feel like they belong," the post said. "And you'll always be accepted, respected and welcomed at Target."

But Cornell told The Wall Street Journal he never approved the post and found out about it after it went live. He said, however, he supports the policy.

"We took a stance, and we are going to continue to embrace our belief of diversity and inclusion," Cornell said in an interview with CNBC in May.

The post triggered a boycott, and the company has since had to spend $20 million to install single-occupancy bathrooms in stores for critics of the policy. Opponents of the policy say that it could allow sexual predators to take advantage of the law and victimize women and children.

Sales slipped nearly six percent in the three quarters after the post was published compared with the same period last year, and same-store sales have fallen every quarter since the post.

Harvard University LGBT Fact Sheet Claims Gender Can 'Change Day to Day'

FACT: You are either born a man or a woman, period. You cannot change your DNA sorry

A new Harvard University factsheet on gender dysphoria is urging students to "fight transphobia" by learning what the university claims are facts associated with the fluidity of gender.

According to Campus Reform, the Ivy League school's Office of BLGTQ Student Life recently distributed a "fact sheet" to students on campus titled "Get the facts about gender diversity. Fight transphobia."

The document begins by asserting that "sex assigned at birth and gender identity are not necessarily the same."

"Sex assigned at birth, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, hormonal makeup, physical anatomy, and/or how one is perceived in daily life are not necessarily related," the sheet reads, adding that "there are more than two sexes."

The page explains that not only do genitals influence a person's sex but also hormones and chromosomes. It cites a post by Organization Intersex International to claim that at least 2 percent of humans are "born with combinations of these characteristics that do not fit into the constructed sex binary of 'male' and 'female,' and may identify as intersex."

"Even within categories of 'male' and 'female,' every human expression of sex is in some way biologically variant from the next," the BLGTQ office asserted.

According to the document, the concept of gender is "fluid and changing," can be expressed in a number of ways and can change on a daily basis.

"For many people — cis and trans — gender expression, identity, and self-understanding can change from day to day," the fact sheet claims. "For example, gender can be expressed through any, all, and/or none of the following ways: speech, mannerisms, clothing, reflecting on one's gender identity, sharing one's gender identity with family, friends, and/or co-workers, make-up, grooming, name and/or sex on legal documents, hormone therapy, and surgery."

The fact sheet concludes by implying that failure to comply and call people by their preferred name or pronoun is a "form of systemic violence."

"Fixed binaries and biological essentialism, manifest in gendered language, misgendering someone, and the policing of trans bodies, threaten the lives of trans people," it contends.

In order to prove its claim, the sheet cites data from an organization called "Trans Student Educational Resources," the same group that produced the much reported on "Gender Unicorn" last year.

"Trans people of color are six [times] more likely to experience physical violence when interacting with the police than white cisgender survivors of violence," the fact sheet claims. "[Eighty percent] of trans students feel unsafe at school because of their gender expression."

The Christian Post reached out to Harvard's media relations department for comment on this story. However, a response was not received by press time.

Campus Reform reports that some Harvard students are upset that university funds were used to produce the BGLTQ office's handout. However, none were willing to risk punishment to speak on the record.

Campus Reform's California campus correspondent Peter Van Voorhis, who broke the news of the fact sheet, told TheBlaze that "students across the country are sick of this gender nonsense, and are fighting back to promote truth on their campuses."

"It's a shame that a historic institution like Harvard University has stooped this low," Van Voorhis asserted.

According to the BLGTQ office's website, it has existed at the school in some capacity since 1998 with the goal of fostering "a safer, more diverse, and inclusive campus by educating and engaging the Harvard community about the multiplicity of sexual and gender identities."

The office hosts a number of annual events, one of which is a "Queer Prom." The office also runs an "Allyship Workshop," to teach students how to act as an LGBT ally in the community.

You Won't Believe What Target's Doing Now

For the second time, Target has launched an LGBT campaign called, #TakePride, aimed at expressing support for the LGBT community.

According to One News Now, the retailer will now sell pro-LGBT merchandise as part of the campaign.

T-shirts that say "Love Conquers All," "Rainbows are Always in Style" and "I Love My Dads," sell for $12.99 to $14.99 each.

Earlier this year, Target's stock value dipped nearly 30 percent after it sparked a consumer boycott by embracing the transgender agenda.

Since April of last year, American Family Association called for a boycott of Target stores after the chain announced that it would allow men to use the women's restrooms and fitting rooms in their stores.

AFA has announced that 1.5 million signatures have been collected in its petition against the retailer.

"It just shows that Target is more into social engineering than they are into selling clothes and tennis shoes—which is a travesty—and it's honestly hurting Target's bottom line," said Walker Wildmon, who serves as AFA's assistant president.

"Target lets you know where they stand by where they spend their money—their corporate money—and which agendas they promote," he said.

Target responded to the backlash by announcing that it would add private, single-stall lockable bathrooms in its stores, apart from the male and female bathrooms.

But Target CEO Brian Cornell denied the impact of the boycott.

"I would think Target would have learned their lesson about participating in aggressive LGBT activism from the backlash they received from their open bathroom policy last year, yet they seem not to have learned that lesson," said Peter Sprigg, of Family Research Council (FRC).

"They don't understand that those people who signed up to boycott Target are not going to be any happier with the Take Pride merchandise that they're offering."

"We're not asking them to go out and oppose same-sex 'marriage' and, you know, raise money for the North Carolina bathroom bill or the Texas bill—or anything like that," Sprigg said.

"We would be perfectly satisfied if they would just remain neutral on these culture war issues. Unfortunately, they seem determined to take the side of the two or three percent who fall into these categories."

Meanwhile, AFA plans to deliver the petition signatures to Target executives later this month.

Public Libraries Hosting ‘Drag Queen Story Hour’ for Children


“Who wants to be a drag queen when they grow up?” That’s the question a man dressed as a woman recently asked children attending “Drag Queen Story Hour” (DQSH) at a public library in New York.

Since last fall, the Brooklyn Public Library in Park Slope has been offering the storytime for children, bringing in various drag queens to read children’s books about homosexuality, gender identity and “non-conformity,” and “general youth discomfort.”

It’s one of several cities across the country—including San Francisco and Los Angeles—who have signed on to the program, created by Michelle Tea of Radar Productions.

“DQSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models,” the website for the effort reads.

Last Saturday, a man who dresses as a woman and identifies as “Lil Hot Mess” appeared at the Brooklyn Public Library in a silver sequin dress smathered with rainbow stickers. He read the book “Worm Loves Worm”—a story about “marriage equality”—to the group of children and their parents.

Following the reading, he led the children in a song and dance, singing, “The hips on the drag queen go swish, swish, swish” and “The heels on the drag queen go higher, higher.”

Kate Savage, a representative at the library, praised the event as being “fantastic.”

t addresses all of these issues of gender fluidity and self-acceptance and all these topics that are real,” she told the Associated Press.

However, the idea has also been met with concern and dismay.

“It’s not getting pushed on children, they said. Now they’ve got drag queens asking them directly, ‘Who wants to be a drag queen when you grow up?’ Indoctrination is never cool,” one commenter wrote.

“Why on earth would you expose impressionable minds to someone who is obviously mentally confused?” another asked. “We should be reinforcing gender identity and not adding to the chaos of this very mixed-up world. You are either born male or female; there is no gray area.”

“You have got to be kidding me. You can’t talk about Jesus, but you can teach from the Koran and now this garbage, which a majority of American families are against!” a third wrote.

In addition to the Park Slope location, the event has been held at the Aguilar Branch Library, the New York Public Library, the Tompkins Square Library, and the Hudson Park Library in the city, as well as the Humboldt County Library in Eureka, California.

In San Francisco, the program is part of a wider effort called “Queering the Castro,” according to the San Francisco Gate.

“The Castro is predominantly a white gay men’s space now,” Radar Executive Director Delgado Lopera told the outlet. “This project is about taking back the radically queer roots of the neighborhood. With art and literature, we’re doing a series of interventions and bringing in other queer folks into that space.”

All-girls school in Calif. became first to admit transgenders. Now its facing a financial reality check. – TheBlaze


Mills College, an all-girls school in Oakland, California, became the first all-girls school to begin admitting transgender males in 2014. Now the institution is facing financial backlash.

The school declared a “financial emergency” this week amid a massive budget shortfall, which college administrators said would lead to a round of layoffs.

According to Inside Higher Ed, Mills is currently running on a $9 million budget deficit, which equates to about 16 percent of the school’s $57 million annual budget. Because of the shortfall, Mills president Elizabeth Hillman expects to layoff about 35 faculty members — including tenured professors.

More from Inside Higher Ed:

    Under the college bylaws, a declaration of financial emergency can be approved when there is a “need to reorder the college’s financial obligations in such a way as to restore and/or preserve the financial stability of the institution.” Under those bylaws, such a declaration “authorizes Mills to restructure all of its expenses, including staff and faculty salary and other expenses, in pursuit of financial stability.”

    Hillman said the college realized it was not declaring “financial exigency,” the term that the American Association of University Professors uses for institutions that are in such dire condition that they may need to eliminate the jobs of tenured faculty members so the institution can survive. She said the board wanted to act on the basis of the Mills bylaws.

The budget shortfall comes amid a decline in student applications for enrollment.

Prior to the transgender policy change in August 2014, the college received 1,827 student applications during the 2013-2014 academic school year, admitted 1,242 and enrolled 217. Just one year later, the school received only 839 student applications, admitted 639 and enrolled 139 students.

In 2014, the previously all-female college changed its undergraduate admissions policy to allow students who “self-identify as female” to apply.

“Mills shall not discriminate against applicants whose gender identity does not match their legally assigned sex,” the school’s policy states.

“This includes students who were not assigned to the female sex at birth but live and identify as women at the time of application. It also includes students who are legally assigned to the female sex, but who identify as transgender or gender fluid,” the policy explains.

However, female students who have since “undergone a legal change of gender to male” are “not eligible” to apply for admission to the school.

Meanwhile, Inside Higher Ed reports that the school is doubling down on their progressive leanings by implementing a curriculum change that focuses on “gender and racial justice.”

According to Mills statistics, the school currently enrolls only 821 undergraduate students. Including room and board, it costs nearly $60,000 to attend the school each year.

Move Over, Transgenders, ‘Modified Humans’ Are The Next Group Demanding Public Acceptance
'For this we have been called satanic, crazy and plenty more, but we couldn't care less that's just their opinions. 'I am never bothered by what people have to say, they will either love or hate us, we don't judge anybody so I don't understand why they judge us.' The reality TV show will follow the human dolls trying to carve careers away from the world of body alteration and their extreme looks.

5/26/17

A TV show is set to follow the most plastic people on the planet, modified humans, who have spent close to three million dollars on surgeries and procedures.

“And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.” Revelation 9:7,8,11 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: If you were under the delusion that transgender was the “end of the line” as far as aberrant end times behavior goes, let me snap you out of that. It started with same-sex relationships for the homosexual, then switching-sex relationships for the transgender, now it’s no-sex relationships for the ‘modified humans’ who identify as soulless, neutral, formless aliens with black, almond-shaped eyes. Exactly the type of behavior you’d expect in godless world preparing for Antichrist. So very glad that the Rapture of the Church comes first.

Plastics of Hollywood will feature 12 human dolls including Ken Dolls Rodrigo Alves and Justin Jedlica, Jessica Rabbit imitator Pixee Fox, Kim Kardashian wannabe Jennifer Pamplona and alien lookalike Vinny Ohh.

Talent manager and producer, Marcela Iglesias, from Los Angeles, California said: ‘We are the world’s first agency for the most modified human beings.

‘They are incredible characters who have had plastic surgery, cosmetic procedures or just have very extreme looks. ‘From surgery and procedures, the dolls have spent over three million dollars altering how they look.

‘Justin Jedlica has $500,000 of that alone and Rodrigo’s body is insured for one million dollars. ‘For these people, it’s about the need to become somebody else because they were born in the wrong body.

‘For this we have been called satanic, crazy and plenty more, but we couldn’t care less that’s just their opinions. ‘I am never bothered by what people have to say, they will either love or hate us, we don’t judge anybody so I don’t understand why they judge us.’

The reality TV show will follow the human dolls trying to carve careers away from the world of body alteration and their extreme looks.

‘As part of our talent agency we guide them to be the best they can be, if some want to be singers, actors, performers we give them the best steps to achieve that goal,’ Marcela said.

‘We’re training them to be the best they can be, put them through boot-camps, give them voice coaching and guidance to be successful. source

1.5 Million Americans Sign Pledge to Boycott Target for Transgender Policy

The number of signatures of those protesting Target’s transgender bathroom policy has now reached 1.5 million.

Charisma News reports that this week, American Family association President Tim Wildmon hand-delivered another 500,000 #BoycottTarget pledge signatures to Target headquarters in Minneapolis. Wildmon had previously delivered one million signatures last year.

Wildmon also met with members of Target’s senior management and voiced his views (and the views of those who signed the pledge) regarding what they believe is a dangerous company policy.

Target officials reportedly listened to what Wildmon had to say about the policy, but did not indicate that they would consider reversing it.

The number of people committed to boycotting the store, however, is taking a toll on the company’s revenue. Target saw falling sales and stock prices over the past year.

"American Family Association is again appreciative that Target representatives were willing to accept the signatures of another 500,000 Americans who are alarmed by this ongoing policy," Wildmon reported. "Yet, even after the retail chain struggled with multiple negative headlines over their sinking sales this past year, Target gave no indication it would make any changes to this policy that is alienating millions of families."

Wildmon encouraged those who signed the pledge to remain committed to the cause and to let Target know that their customers are sending a clear message.

“Most importantly, we ask that all who agree with AFA's #BoycottTarget pledge remain committed to not visiting Target stores or shopping online through Target.com. Target's financial numbers have shown that these families who have chosen to shop elsewhere are making a huge difference."

Hallmark Offering Cards to Celebrate ‘Gender Transitions’

The popular greeting card company Hallmark is selling cards to affirm those who identify as “transgender” and to celebrate those who are undergoing gender “transitions,” the company has confirmed.

“Hallmark is committed to helping people share what’s in their hearts with those they love, and we strive to be inclusive and relevant with our products,” the company said in a statement this week, as reported by Bustle. “We are committed to reflecting people’s real lives and enriching their relationships, and our mission includes all people.”

While Hallmark began making its transgender line available in 2015, the offering just recently came to light. The company features a variety of cards on its website for homosexual relationships and transgender identification.

“Your identity is who you are. Wear it proudly, celebrate it with loved ones, and love out loud,” the site reads. “Hallmark is proud to offer a wide selection of greeting cards crafted to capture the colorful, inspiring LGBTQIA community in all of its shapes and forms.”

“Regardless of orientation or identity, whether you’re in a same-sex relationship or one that transcends labels, we are here to help you celebrate love and milestones with creativity and sincerity,” it states.

Hallmark’s offerings include cards such as “mommy + mommy + baby makes three,” “it’s a simple story of boy meets boy,” “closets are for clothes,” “party so hard you can’t ever see straight” and “queen for a day is for underachievers,” the latter of which celebrates drag queens.

The company also sells cards offering well-wishes for those who are undergoing procedures to identify as the opposite sex, including, “You’re becoming who you’ve always been” and “You are trans-tastic.”

In addition to being sold online, the company has also made its homosexual and transgender affirmation line available in some stores.

“We know how increasingly diverse our connections to each other are, and we’re here to help people express love, celebration, support or recognition in a wide range of situations,” Hallmark said. “It is our goal to be inclusive rather than exclusive so that our products appeal to the widest range of people who wish to communicate and connect with one another.”

Word about the cards has generated a mix of public opinion, with some pleased with the inclusion and others stating that gender dysphoria should not be encouraged.

“Will these be sold in the ‘You must be confused’ section?” one commenter asked.

“I usually stayed away from Hallmark brand because their themes were outdated. But [now], I think I’ll give them another look! They seem to be doing a great job adapting to how we live now,” another opined.

“The cynicism of capitalism; if there’s a market, they’ll cater to it,” a third remarked. “Since ‘trans’ has suddenly become a fad, I’m more concerned about young men/women buying into it, with permanent changes they’re simply not thinking about, from not having children to surgery. Even as someone not connected to the ‘community’ I know of two trans ‘regrets’ and there will be more over time.”

Hallmark began selling homosexual-themed cards approximately a decade ago.

Canada Passes Bill 89 Allowing Government To Seize Children From Parents Opposed To Gender Transition
Bill 89, “Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act, 2017,” was approved on June 1 by a vote of 63 to 23. The Minister of Children and Youth Services, Michael Coteau, who introduced the bill, said earlier this year that a parent’s failure to recognize and support a child’s gender self-identification is a form of child abuse, and a child in these circumstances should be removed from the situation and placed into protection.

6/6/17

The Canadian government may legally remove children from families that refuse to accept their child’s chosen “gender identity” thanks to new legislation passed by the Ontario province.

Bill 89, “Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act, 2017,” was approved on June 1 by a vote of 63 to 23. The Minister of Children and Youth Services, Michael Coteau, who introduced the bill, said earlier this year that a parent’s failure to recognize and support a child’s gender self-identification is a form of child abuse, and a child in these circumstances should be removed from the situation and placed into protection.

“I would consider that a form of abuse, when a child identifies one way and a caregiver is saying no, you need to do this differently,” Coteau said. “If it’s abuse, and if it’s within the definition, a child can be removed from that environment and placed into protection where the abuse stops.”
The new bill replaces the Child and Family Services Act, or Bill 28, which governed child protection, foster care and adoption services.

While “gender identity” and “gender expression” are included in the new legislation as important factors to be considered in determining “the best interests of the child,” the religious faith in which the parents are raising the child—present in former laws—has been removed from consideration for assessing the child’s best interests.

Convicted Sex Offender Leads Transgender Rights Effort in North Carolina

The homosexual leader of efforts in North Carolina to allow men to use women’s bathrooms is a convicted and registered sex offender, according to documents made available to Breitbart News.

Chad Sevearance is president of the Charlotte Business Guild, which describes itself as “a network of LGBT professionals, business owners, employees and individuals in the Charlotte area who meet to nurture a network of business contacts; encourage fellowship and support among community business, professional and charitable pursuits; and provide and promote positive role models in the LGBT community.”

Sevearance and his group have taken a lead role in seeking the right to allow males to use the restrooms and showers of females, including those of little girls, which is described by advocates as nothing more than nondiscrimination measures. Sevearance was quoted in the Charlotte Observer saying that because a recent bathroom “nondiscrimination ordinance” bill did not pass, “someone can ask me to leave a restaurant because I’m presumed to be gay or transgender.”

In 1998, Sevearance worked as a youth minister and in that capacity allegedly lured younger men to his apartment to spend the night where Severance showed them pornography and tried to talk them into sex. One boy testified that he woke up to find Severance “fondling him.” Severance was convicted on one charge of sexual molestation of a minor.

As a result of his 2000 conviction, Sevearance must register with the police on a regular basis for a minimum of ten years. His most recent mug shot and registration took place at the end of last year.

A reporter with the Charlotte Observer confirmed for Breitbart News that the Chad Sevearance they frequently quote is the same man who was convicted for sexual assault of a minor in 2000.

Repeated calls to the Charlotte Business Guild went unanswered.

Eight-Year-Old Drag Queen: If Your Parents Won’t Let You Do Drag, ‘You Need New Parents’

A video of an eight-year-old boy who performs in drag has gone viral, with the child advising during the interview that if one’s parents will not allow them to be a drag queen, “you need new parents.”

Nemis Quinn Mélançon-Golden uses the stage name “Lactatia,” which he says was suggested by his teenage sister. Last month, Mélançon-Golden appeared at Montreal’s “Werq the World Tour,” where drag queen Bianca Del Rio told the child that he was “[expletive] adorable,” among other profanities.

Mélançon-Golden’s mother handles his makeup before shows, as he often wears lipstick, eyeliner and shadow, as well as a long wig.

“Obviously, we’re not like most moms and dads,” the boy’s parents, Jessica Mélançon and Coriander Golden, told Best Kept Montreal. “Instead of Saturday morning soccer practice, we have Vogue classes. When we go clothes shopping, it’s equal parts black skinny jeans and skulls as it is sequins and tulle. We talk ollies, grinding and dropping in. He’s pretty dedicated to his skateboard, just as much as contouring and tuck tape!”

A video released by “LGBT in the City” on June 4, which as of press time has over a million views on Facebook and over 200,000 views on YouTube, features Mélançon-Golden opining that if children want to be drag queens and their parents won’t allow it, they need new parents.

“Anyone can do what they want in life,” he stated. “It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. If you want to be a drag queen and your parents don’t let you, you need new parents. If you want to be a drag queen and your friends don’t let you, you need new friends.”

Mélançon-Golden also advised that he has been performing in drag since he was seven, but has worn dresses since he was three.

“[W]e’ve gifted both of our children with the ideal that there’s nothing just for girls and nothing just for boys,” his parents explained to Best Kept Montreal. “He grew up wearing his sister’s hand me down princess costumes and fancy shoes while playing with monster trucks and riding a skateboard.”

They said that their son was concerned about being accepted at first because most men who dress in drag are homosexual and he doesn’t have an interest in those of the same sex.

“It’s something we’ve talked a lot about at length because he expressed his concern that people wouldn’t think he was a ‘real’ drag queen or take him seriously because he doesn’t feel like he’s gay,” Mélançon-Golden’s parents outlined. “Maybe he will in the future? Who knows.”

The viral video and subsequent reports have generated a variety of reactions, with homosexual news sites cheering the boy on as “incredible” and Christian ministries aimed at helping homosexuals expressing concern about the welfare of the child.

“We are witnessing the LGBTQ+ community embrace child abuse by cultivating mental illness by promoting ‘drag’ in a child. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know this will eventually lead to sexual play,” Stephen Black, a a former homosexual who now leads First Stone Ministries, told reporters.

“Today we are seeing—truly, right before our eyes—a moral decline like we have never witnessed, a demented mindset that calls evil good, and good evil. The Bible predicted these days would come and we are surely in them,” he said.

Canada Passes Bill C-16 Making It A Hate Crime With Jail Time To Address Transgenders Using Wrong Pronoun • Now The End Begins

Canada passed a law Thursday making it illegal to use the wrong gender pronouns. Critics say that Canadians who do not subscribe to progressive gender theory could be accused of hate crimes, jailed, fined, and made to take anti-bias training.

Canada’s Senate passed Bill C-16, which puts “gender identity” and “gender expression” into both the country’s Human Rights Code, as well as the hate crime category of its Criminal Code by a vote of 67-11, according to LifeSiteNews. The bill now only needs royal assent from the House of Commons to pass into law.

“Great news,” announced Justin Trudeau, Canada’s prime minister. “Bill C-16 has passed the Senate – making it illegal to discriminate based on gender identity or expression. #LoveisLove.”

“Proud that Bill C-16 has passed in the Senate,” said Jody Wilson-Raybould, the country’s attorney general and minister of justice. “All Canadians should feel #FreeToBeMe.”

“There’s an argument that transgender identity is too subjective a concept to be enshrined in law because it is defined as an individual’s deeply felt internal experience of gender,” said Grant Mitchell, a conservative senator, in November 2016. “Yet we, of course, accept outright that no one can discriminate on the basis of religion, and that too is clearly a very deeply subjective and personal feeling.”

Jordan Peterson, a professor at the University of Toronto, and one of the bill’s fiercest critics, spoke to the Senate before the vote, insisting that it infringed upon citizens’ freedom of speech and institutes what he views as dubious gender ideology into law.

“Compelled speech has come to Canada,” stated Peterson. “We will seriously regret this.”
Shouted down because he spoke the truth:

This is what Canadian college students think of free speech.

“[Ideologues are] using unsuspecting and sometimes complicit members of the so-called transgender community to push their ideological vanguard forward,” said the professor to the Senate in May. “The very idea that calling someone a term that they didn’t choose causes them such irreparable harm that legal remedies should be sought [is] an indication of just how deeply the culture of victimization has sunk into our society.”

Peterson has previously pledged not to use irregular gender pronouns and students have protested him for his opposition to political correctness.

“This tyrannical bill is nothing but social engineering to the nth degree, all in the name of political correctness,” Jeff Gunnarson, vice president of Campaign Life Toronto, a pro-life political group in Canada, told LifeSiteNews.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to the director of communications for the House of Commons, but received no comment in time for publication. source

The Results Are In!! Look Who Won The Virginia Primary!!

According to official reports, the first transgender candidate has won the virginia primary.

dailycaller.com reported: Danica Roem beat three other Democrats Tuesday to become the first transgender candidate to win a primary for the Virginia House of Delegates.

Roem advanced to November’s general elections, where he’ll face incumbent Republican Bob Marshall. If he wins, he will be the third transgender state legislator to hold office in the U.S., and one of only a few transgender elected officials in the world.

Delegate Robert Marshall, who has represented Virginia’s 13th district since 1992, introduced the Physical Privacy Act earlier this year, a bill seeking to mandate that transgenders use restrooms that correspond with their “original birth certificate,” rather than the gender with which they identify. There is little doubt that votes will come to a head over Marshall’s more conservative values against Roe’s pro-transgender agenda in November.

Roem is a “proud trans woman committed to representing all people in her district,” said Aisha Mills, president and CEO of political action committee the Victory Fund, calling his win “historic.”

After the results had been tallied, Roem thanked his supporters on social media saying, “We know how to defeat Del. Bob Marshall (R). We’re ready. ‪#NoH8 ‪#FixRoute28.” His hashtags refer to anti-LGBTQ legislation and Route 28 transit issues that are sure to surface in the general election.

Tuesday’s Virginia primary had a 170 percent greater turnout rate than the last gubernatorial race in 2009, said Kip Malinosky, chair of the Arlington County Democratic Committee.

Trump Admin. Says Schools Can Be Investigated for Wrong Pronoun Use for Transgender Students

The Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights has issued an internal memo explaining that refusal by public schools or teachers to refer to a transgender student by his or her preferred pronoun or name could be grounds for an investigation.

It was reported Friday that the acting assistant secretary for civil rights, Candice Jackson, issued a memo on June 6 calling on the department's lawyers and investigators to consider complaints of discrimination by transgender students on a case-by-case basis.

Although Attorney Gen. Jeff Sessions and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos issued a joint memo in February that effectively rescinded last year's Obama administration guidance that called on schools to allow students to access bathrooms and locker rooms that are in accordance with their gender identity, the memo states that transgender students still have some valid discrimination complaints worthy of an OCR investigation.

The memo lists a number of valid reasons why OCR investigators would be legally able to assert "subject matter jurisdiction over and open for investigation," such as a school's failure to quickly and equitably resolve a transgender student's complaint of sex discrimination or treating a student different because of his or her failure to conform to "stereotyped notions of masculinity or femininity."

Additionally, an investigation could be had if there is failure to assess whether sexual harassment or gender-based harassment of a "transgender student created a hostile environment."

The memo lists certain actions that might be construed as "gender-based harassment."

That list includes: "refusing to use a transgender student's preferred name or pronouns when the school uses preferred names for gender-conforming students or when the refusal is motivated by animus toward people who do not conform to sex stereotypes."

The Los Angeles Times points out that not included on the list of reasons for an investigation is the act of denying transgender students the right to use bathrooms and locker rooms consistent with their perceived gender.

"Please evaluate each allegation separately, searching for permissible jurisdictional basis for OCR to retain and pursue the complaint," the memo reads. "It is permissible, for example, for one allegation in a complaint (such as harassment based on gender stereotypes) to go forward while another allegation (such as denial of access to restroom based on gender identity) is dismissed."

In an interview with The Washington Post, Jackson said that it was important for her and DeVos that "our investigators not make the mistake of assuming that just because that particular guidance has been rescinded, that all complaints filed by transgender students are going to be dismissed."

"We wanted to very carefully explain in written format to our field that every investigator assigned to one of these cases needs to go through and individually examine every complaint, and actively search for ways that OCR can retain jurisdiction over the complaint," Jackson said.

The memo comes at the dismay of many left-leaning civil rights advocates, such as Catherine Lhamon, who led OCR during the Obama administration and helped draft last May's "Dear Colleague" letter to school districts that argued that Title IX protects transgender students' rights to use bathrooms and locker rooms consistent with their gender identity.

"This guidance says that OCR gets to pick and choose which cases it will open, and it could be appropriate to dismiss for lack of jurisdiction an allegation that a transgender student is not able to access a bathroom consistent with their gender identity," Lhamon, who is now the chair of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, told The Washington Post. "That is not an option under the law, and OCR does not have the option to pick and choose the cases it wants to open."

However, one OCR employee who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told the Post that the memo is a "green light" to process discrimination complaints of transgender students, which include those that deal with bathroom access. The employee noted any student who is not allowed to use bathrooms or locker rooms consistent with the gender identity could be considered a victim of sex stereotyping.

"The presumption here should be it's business as usual, and not that OCR is abdicating its role as a protector of civil rights for transgender students," the employee said.

Anurima Bhargava, who served in the Obama Justice Department, told the Post that she agrees with the OCR employee's assessment that the memo opens the door for officials to investigate complaints about bathroom access.

"It is saying proceed in accordance with the law, and the law is moving in the right direction," Bhargava explained.

You Won't Believe What Just Happened at Target

The American Family Association (AFA, www.afa.net) is reporting that recently in The Woodlands, Texas, a woman was sexually violated when a man freely entered the women's dressing room and began videotaping her trying on bathing suits.

In an Action Alert to its more than 1 million friends and supporters, AFA noted that store security cameras clearly showed Target employees in the area did not attempt to apprehend the peeping Tom after the victim screamed for help.

"So many disturbing and frightening elements exist in this sad story," said AFA President Tim Wildmon. "First, this woman should have been safe in a dressing room specifically reserved for her gender. But especially troubling is the fact that even after the woman screamed for help, two store employees stood by and allowed it to happen, which is unthinkable. Pool toys, picnic supplies, bathing suits and beach towels can all be purchased elsewhere. Shopping at Target is not worth the risk! We are asking shoppers not to put themselves and their children in the path of danger."

According to a KTRK television report, the woman can't get the images out of her head. "I feel really scared right now," she said.

In response to the incident, and many others like it, Wildmon has written a scathing and passionate open letter to Target CEO Brian Cornell, where he says:

    We have warned you over and over and over again that your bathroom and dressing room policy puts customers at risk for physical and emotional violence.

    advertisement

    This past sexual incident in your The Woodlands, Texas, store is just one more example of how your company's disregard for the safety and well-being of women and children has scarred another life.

    Mr. Cornell, just how many more people have to suffer before you stop the insanity? Sexual assault is real. In light of this latest case, how can you be so callous as to continue to allow men to enter women's dressing room areas?

Read the entire letter here.

AFA is asking those who feel strongly about Target's misguided actions to read the letter and urge Cornell to reverse the company's dangerous policy. Thus far, nearly 34,000 have signed the letter in agreement. AFA is also asking citizens to take action in several other ways:

    Forward information about Target's policy to friends and family. Invite them to sign the #BoycottTarget pledge at www.afa.net/target.
    Call Target headquarters at 612-304-6073 and personally let them know you are boycotting their stores.
    Make a comment on Target's Facebook page.
    Share this tweet on Twitter: Hey @Target, men don't belong in women's restrooms and changing areas. #BoycottTarget http://bit.ly/2q3wUnJ
    Call your local manager and politely remind them that you are still boycotting Target. Find local Target store numbers here.

Last month, Wildmon hand-delivered another 500,000 #BoycottTarget pledge signatures to Target headquarters in Minneapolis, after which AFA leadership briefly met with Target executives about the retailer's dangerous and misguided restroom and fitting room policy that puts women and children at risk. The first million signatures were delivered in May 2016.

X MARKS THE SPOT: The Rising Tide Of Transgender Millennials Who Are Opting To Identify As Gender X
More than one-third of transgender people describe themselves as non-binary, which the National Center for Transgender Equality defines as "people whose gender is not exclusively male or female, including those who identify with a gender other than male or female, as more than one gender, or as no gender, identifying as a combination of genders or not identifying with either gender at all."

http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/transgender-x-marks-spot-rising-tide-millennials-opting-identify-gender-x/

America has slowly begun to acknowledge that for many people, gender is much more complicated than simply being a man or a woman. And a growing number of Americans are seeking recognition of a third gender, neither exclusively male or female, under the label non-binary.

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” Genesis 1:27 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: One of the greatest Bible teachers of the 20th century, Peter S. Ruckman, had a very good and very controversial teaching where he connects the letter “x” with the coming Antichrist. He goes on to give a list (quoted in article below) of  words that end with “x” that all seem to have something creepy in common. He passed away last year at the age of 95, but the coming craziness he predicted decades ago is now coming to pass. As for that list of words that end with “x”, you might want to check it out. Seriously. You should.

People typically think of transgender as meaning gender reversal, where someone identifies as the opposite sex from their birth sex. But transgender is an umbrella term used to cover a wide spectrum of people whose gender identity is different from the one they were assigned at birth.

More than one-third of transgender people describe themselves as non-binary, which the National Center for Transgender Equality defines as “people whose gender is not exclusively male or female, including those who identify with a gender other than male or female, as more than one gender, or as no gender, identifying as a combination of genders or not identifying with either gender at all.”
Non-Binary Gender Pushing:

Meet the face of the non-binary generation X. No words. Watch as much of this as you can stand, but the first 15 seconds kinda says it all.

Non-binary people have always been part of the population. But for the first time, state governments in the U.S.. are beginning to recognize their identity. Oregon approved a third gender option on driver’s licenses last week; California’s Senate passed a law with the same aim, and similar legislation was introduced in both New York and the District of Columbia this week.

Non-binary people are now represented in popular culture as well. Actor Asia Kate Dillon, who is credited with being the “first non-binary actor ever to be portrayed on TV,” plays a gender non-binary character on the Showtime series Billions.

“Hello, I’m Taylor. My pronouns are they, theirs and them,” Dillon’s Billions character declares when introduced to one of the show’s two protagonists. The scene likely also introduced the concept of non-binary people and non-gender specific pronouns to many viewers.
Words that end with “x” that you should know about:

“Don’t kid me man, go kid your grandma” – Peter S. Ruckman, 20th century southern wisdom.

    The most interesting thing about the number 666 is that it contains three words that end in “X”…Words that will damn the human race are as follows: sex, hex, pox, vex, hoax, jinx, tax, marx, etc. The two latest are “Xerox” and “Fax,” although you will have to admit that Felix, Sphinx, Lynx, Styx, and Rex are very appropriate since the Son of Perdition is a King likened to a cat. “Also rans” are Ax (Rev. 20:4), Ox (Ex. 32), Lux (Isa. 14:12), Vox (Rev. 13:5), X-mas, and “Malcom X.” “X” marks the spot. (Ruckman, Peter. Ruckman’s Bible References: Personal Notes on Salient Verses in the Bible. 1997, p. 364)

The issue of gender on official documentation is not merely a semantic one.

Nearly one-third of transgender people said they were harassed, assaulted or denied service because their ID did not match their “gender presentation,” according to the 2015 U.S. Transgender Survey from the National Center for Transgender Equality.

“Presenting an identification document that does not accurately reflect one’s sex and is inconsistent with one’s gender identity can trigger invasions of privacy, prejudice, stigma, violence and discrimination and harassment in a wide variety of settings, including in employment, education, public accommodations, health care, housing and interactions with the government, including with law enforcement,” the LGBT civil rights group Lambda Legal wrote to the Oregon Department of Transportation arguing for the rule change to allow a third gender option.

Oregon became the first state to give residents the option to identify as neither male or female on their driver’s licenses and state identification cards Thursday after a ruling by the Oregon Transportation Commission. Beginning July 1, those IDs will offer an “X” as a third option in addition to the traditional “F” and “M.”

A bill passed the California Senate to allow the state’s residents to change their gender identity on their birth certificates and state IDs, including driver’s licenses, to “female, male, or non-binary.” The bill is currently awaiting a vote in the state Assembly. Similar legislation has been introduced in New York and the District of Columbia. source

Police Seek Man for Using Cell Phone to Look Up a Girl’s Skirt at Target Store

Chesterfield, Virginia, police are looking for a man accused of taking video to look up a woman’s skirt at the local Target retail store.

A female shopper called police after finding that a man was following her around the Westchester Commons Target store. At one point, she said, the man put a cell phone in a basket on the floor and pushed it toward her, according to a report by the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

“She soon noticed a shopping basket on the floor near her with a phone in it; the phone’s camera was facing up in an apparent attempt to take photos up her skirt,” a police report said.

The suspect is a white male, about 40 to 45 years old. He stands 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs 200 pounds, according to police. He had graying hair and was wearing khaki shorts and a blue T-shirt that said “St. Mary’s College” on it.

Police released a photo of the suspect to the public in hopes that his identity might be discovered, according to CBS News.

Canadian Baby is First Child Not to be Assigned a Gender at Birth

 A child born in the Canadian province of British Columbia is reportedly the first baby not to be identified as male or female at birth.

According to CNN.com, instead, the baby, named Searyl Atli Doty, was identified as “U” on their health card, which reportedly stands for “Unknown” or “Unspecified.”

The baby’s parent, Kori Doty, identifies as a non-binary transgender and hopes that, by foregoing a genital inspection and identification for the child, the child can more easily discover their true identity later in life--something which Doty says was a personal struggle.

"When I was born, doctors looked at my genitals and made assumptions about who I would be, and those assignments followed me and followed my identification throughout my life," Doty said.

“It is up to Searyl to decide how they identify, when they are old enough to develop their own gender identity," Doty went on to say in a statement. "I am not going to foreclose their choices based on an arbitrary assignment of gender at birth based on an inspection of their genitals."

Although Doty has reportedly faced difficulty in obtaining a birth certificate for Searyl, the health card will allow the child to be eligible for healthcare services.

Doty is an advocate for not assigning gender at birth, not only for Searyl, but for all children. Eight complainants, including Doty, are arguing before British Columbia’s Human Rights Tribunal that gender identification at birth should be abolished.
