Obama Administration Orders School District to Let Boy Use Girls’ Locker Room

The Obama administration has ordered a school district in Illinois to allow a male student who identifies a female to use the girls’ locker room or face enforcement measures that could mean the loss of $6 million in federal funding.

As previously reported, an unidentified high school student within Township High School District 211 requested to use the girls’ locker room nearly two years ago since the student asserts that they identify as female.

But the district declined, citing the privacy concerns of the other students. It in turn offered the student a private location to change, but the student rejected the accommodation. He then contacted the American Civil Liberties Union, which in turn filed a federal complaint with the Office of Civil Rights of the U.S. Department of Education.

The Department of Education responded by opining that the district had to permit the student to use the locker room of his choice due to Title IX requirements. The two sides continued in talks for a number of months, but the district held firm on requiring privacy for female students while offering various accommodations, which were refused.

On Monday, the Department released its final remarks following the conclusion of its investigation into the matter.

“[T]he evidence establishes that, given Student A’s intention to change privately, the district could afford equal access to its locker rooms for all students if it installed and maintained privacy curtains in sufficient number to be reasonably available for any student who wants privacy,” its letter reads in part, noting that the district did so last week.

“Here the totality of the circumstances weighs in favor of the district granting Student A equal access to the girls’ locker rooms, while protecting the privacy of its students,” the Department opined.

However, negotiations remain impasse. The district now has 30 days to settle the matter or it could be penalized.

“To date, OCR’s efforts to resolve this complaint voluntarily with the district have not been successful,” the letter states. “If an agreement is not reached within 30 calendar days of the date of this letter of findings, OCR must follow the procedures … for the issuance of a letter of impending enforcement action.”

“This decision makes me extremely happy because of what it means for me, personally, and for countless others,” the unidentified student said in a statement released by the ACLU.

“The district’s policy stigmatized me, often making me feel like I was not a ‘normal person.'”

But the district continues to maintain that it has done no wrong.

“We believe the law is aligned with our current position, and we are prepared to pursue all measures of due process in order to hear this argument out,” said Superintendent Daniel Cates in a statement. “We don’t believe, and it is false to report that we broke the law because the [office of civil rights] said we did. I believe in this case, they have overstepped.”

Putin Warns ISIS – Obama Warns School District About Girls’ Shower Room

This is a truth that could not make good fiction in a low budget B movie, much less a policy issue in the once most dignified and morally advanced nation the world has ever known.

My first inclination was to title this piece, “Obama threatens to spank school district for not favoring a single transgender student.”

Too crass, I thought; but along came an article before I got to write word one. It was entitled “Complete Anarchy’ as Obama Invades girls’ Showers.” The subtitle was even more scathing and reads: “Feds force school to comply with ‘profoundly stupid’ rule.”

Good online writers hyperlink their important references for safety’s sake, but this one had to be connected for the reader whose incredulity would not allow them to believe what they were reading.

The story is not complicated. One boy who thinks he is a girl wants to play on girls’ teams, be allowed into the girls’ locker rooms and shower with the girls, and is not satisfied with the broad accommodations the school district has already made.

Now, liberalism’s standard knight in shining armor (ACLU) has come to the boy’s defense, along with Barack Obama breathing out warnings that the school will lose its Title IX federal funding if it does not speedily comply.

Since the boy has had no genital alterations, his male anatomy would have to be seen by any and all girls showering. Their discomfort and any other feelings that may conger will be ignored for the exception, and progressivism has once again proven that America is in the throes of collective reprobation.

What we have essentially is a world where ISIS kills and beheads Christians and others, followed by enough aborted babies to start a new country and a world on the verge of world war three. Safely tucked into the lavish environs of the White House, we have a president who is concerned with what takes place in a girls’ shower room.

This is a truth that could not make good fiction in a low budget B movie, much less a policy issue in the once most dignified and morally advanced nation the world has ever known.

This writer is fully aware, for the most part, that my warnings about our moral decline fall largely of deaf ears; but this too is part of prophecy. All of prophecy serves to describe this event and a thousand more just like it. Evil will have its day (Pr 16: 4); and when it flowers, judgments will begin to fall. Don’t look now, but that has already begun.

Addressing this world class absurdity has become a daily affair for those warning our nation that her moral decline is now in the most advanced stages known as ‘reprobation.’

Here is the key: reprobation is a judgment.

It is the very first stage of judgment and is followed by progressive and far more serious physical actions like the rise and fall of nations, wars and natural calamities.

Reprobation is the inability to discern between right and wrong. Liberalism, socialism, progressivism, false and apostate theologies and religions are the very medium by which evil brings these judgments upon everyone.

“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.” (Romans 1:28)
The ‘Godless generation’ has a day of evil, but make no mistake: it is not a day of winning. When minds and hearts go reprobate, lives are lost, literally, eternally and without remedy.

We have seen our president follow the yellow brick road of progressivism to this day; while the world is at the brink of Armageddon, Barack Obama’s mind is on a girls’ shower room.

Attorneys: Katy-area teacher fired for refusing to address girl, 6, as transgender boy

A federal discrimination complaint has been filed on behalf of a Katy-area educator who says she was wrongly terminated for refusing to address a 6-year-old girl as a transgender boy, the teacher's attorneys said Tuesday.

Madeline Kirksey, of Houston, who worked at the Children's Lighthouse Learning Center location on Clay Road,  was fired Nov. 3 after she would not agree to treat the child as a male and call the child by a new male name, according to a copy of the filing with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Attorney Andy Taylor pointed to Kirksey's protected class as a black female over 40 who holds religious convictions. "All of those rights were not vindicated but destroyed," Taylor said.

Taylor represented the plaintiffs who challenged the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance, which was originally passed by the city council but was repealed by Houston voters last week. Taylor is joined in Kirksey's case by attorney Briscoe Cain. Kirksey's pastor also attended and spoke at a morning news conference at a Galleria-area hotel.

Reached by phone Tuesday, Jamie Izaks, a spokesman for the Children's Lighthouse Learning Centers, said Kirksey was not fired because of the matter relating to the transgender student. He said he could not comment on matters related to employment.

The learning center franchises, first established in Fort Worth, exist in multiple states, and the company promotes itself online as "the leading values-based educational child care system in the U.S." Izaks said the schools are accepting of all religions and have a reputation for nurturing and raising great students.

Taylor stressed that the child had been attending school since the start of classes as a "little girl."

Using fake names, Taylor said that the child left school Friday as "Sally" and returned on Monday going by "Johnny."

AS ISIS THREAT RISES, CONGRESS CREATES ‘TRANSGENDER TASK FORCE’ TO PROMOTE LGBT RIGHTS
The task force follows the White House’s hiring of its first transgendered staff member back in Aug. when it appointed activist Raffi Freedman-Gurspan as the new Outreach and Recruitment Director for the Office of Personnel.

11/19/15

THE CONGRESSIONAL LGBT EQUALITY CAUCUS ANNOUNCED ITS NEW “TRANSGENDER TASK FORCE” TO PROMOTE “TRANSGENDER RIGHTS.”

EDITOR’S NOTE: IS ISIS AFRAID OF TAKING ON THE MIGHTY UNITED STATES? NO, THEY ARE NOT. AND WHY WOULD THAT BE? BECAUSE THEY SEE A COUNTRY THAT, AFTER 7 YEARS OF BARACK OBAMA, HAS BECOME SO WEAK AND SO UNFOCUSED THAT WE LACK THE NATIONAL WILL TO COMBAT THEM. AND THEY ARE RIGHT IN THINKING THAT. AS THOUSANDS OF MUSLIM MIGRANTS POUR OVER OUR BORDERS, CONGRESS IS MORE CONCERNED WITH NOT OFFENDING TRANSEXUALS THEN THEY ARE WITH KEEPING AMERICA SAFE. AMERICA HAS BECOME RONDA ROUSEY, AND WE ARE ABOUT TO GET KICKED TO THE FACE BY ISIS. LIGHTS OUT.

The new transgender task force, made up of nine members of the House of Representatives, wants to advance the transgender community using congressional resources. “The purpose of the task force is to analyze the challenges and barriers and figure out what the government’s role is in making life easier for transgenders,” Roddy Flynn, the executive director of the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus told The Christian Science Monitor. “We need much more data about these barriers to the American dream.”

And LGBT Equality Caucus Co-Chair Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) lamented that transgendered people are often “left out” of LGBT campaigns. “We all celebrate the great strides we’ve made in recent years in the LGBT rights movement, but too many times, the ‘T’ in LGBT has been an afterthought,” he told reporters Tuesday.

The task force follows the White House’s hiring of its first transgendered staff member back in Aug. when it appointed activist Raffi Freedman-Gurspan as the new Outreach and Recruitment Director for the Office of Personnel.

“Her commitment to bettering the lives of transgender Americans, particularly transgender people of color and those in poverty, reflects the values of this administration,” Obama’s senior advisor Valerie Jarrett said, adding that Gurspan’s appointment “demonstrates the kind of leadership this administration champions.”

BUT CRITICS WARN THAT THE CURRENT “TRANSGENDER MANIA” SWEEPING THE NATION IS PROMOTING MASS DELUSION INSTEAD OF ACCEPTANCE.

“Sex reassignment surgery, even today with all of its advances, cannot in fact change anyone’s [biological] sex, okay,” best-selling feminist author Camille Paglia said on the Brazilian television program Roda Viva. “You can define yourself as a trans man, or a trans woman, as one of these new gradations along the scale, but ultimately, every single cell in the human body, the DNA in that cell, remains coded for your biological birth.” “So there are a lot of lies being propagated at the present moment, which I think is not in anyone’s best interest.” source

Transgender public restroom initiative fails to make California ballot

Backers of a proposed ballot initiative that sought to require transgender people to use the public restrooms that correspond with their biological sex say they have failed to qualify the measure for the California ballot.

Monday was the deadline for the initiative's sponsors to submit voter signatures to county election offices for verification.

Karen England of the Privacy for All campaign said in a statement that the volunteer-led effort fell short of the 365,880 signatures needed to get the initiative on the November 2016 ballot. England did not reveal by how much.

Privacy for All's initiative would have prohibited transgender people from using the single-sex facilities that matched their gender identity unless a doctor confirmed they had undergone sex reassignment surgery.

LGBT rights groups in California had been gearing up to campaign against the initiative in case it qualified.

STUDENTS PROTEST TRANSGENDER INVASION OF PRIVACY
'It is unfair to infringe upon the rights of others to accommodate 1 person'


Why These High School Girls Don’t Want Transgender ‘Student A’ in Their Locker Room

Speaking out, they knew, could make them the public face of a very private issue.

It could lead their classmates to call them “bigots,” “insensitive” and “homophobes.”

But after seeing their high school back down to threats that the U.S. Department of Education would strip away federal funding, and watching school officials overrule their parents, a group of six high school girls in Cook County, Illinois, decided to speak out.

On Dec. 7, before a crowded school board meeting packed with news media, they would tell the world why they don’t want a high school student who was born male, but identifies as a female, to use the girls’ locker room.

They would tell the world why allowing a transgender student to see them in a state of undress would be an invasion of their personal privacy.

They would explain why, at 15 and 16 years old, changing alongside biological women is already hard enough.

“It is unfair to infringe upon the rights of others to accommodate one person,” the six girls, in a joint statement, told an audience of at least 500.

“Although we will never fully understand your personal struggle,” they said, addressing the transgender student, “please understand that we, too, all are experiencing personal struggles that need to be respected.”

Palatine, a well-off suburb of Chicago, is the first district in the country to be found in violation of civil rights laws on transgender issues.

By forcing the transgender student – known in the media as “Student A” – to use a separate locker room, the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights ruled that Township High School District 211 had discriminated against the student “on the basis of sex.”

The finding came as the result of a lengthy investigation, triggered by a lawsuit filed by Student A’s parents.

To resolve the findings – and to avoid the Department of Education’s threats of losing federal funding – the school board changed its policies to allow Student A into the girls’ locker rooms, so long as the student changed behind newly installed “privacy curtains.”

Those curtains, the six girls said, shield Student A from personal insecurities, but they leave the rest of them uncomfortably exposed.

‘Still anatomically a male’

According to the Department of Education’s investigation, Student A began transitioning to a female in middle school.

The student was diagnosed with gender dysphoria and currently receives an “ongoing course” of hormone therapy.

But some girls at the high school say Student A has not fully transitioned, which makes some of them uncomfortable sharing a locker room.

“What bothers me is the fact that this student is still anatomically a male,” a 16-year-old sophomore told The Daily Signal on the condition of anonymity. “If the student had already undergone surgical procedures, this would be another story entirely, but as it stands I just don’t feel comfortable with it.”

A 15-year-old told The Daily Signal “it just doesn’t feel right.”

“I know Student A poses no harm to me, but it just doesn’t feel right knowing someone with male anatomy is in the bathroom with me,” she said, adding:

I have nothing against Student A and would be her friend if I knew her better, but when it comes down to it, I don’t feel right changing in the same room as a transgender student. The locker room is already filled with so much judgment, and I barely feel OK changing in front of my naturally born girl peers.

A third student, a 16-year-old sophomore, expressed frustration.

“[W]e are supposed to accept this and feel like nothing really is happening, but the fact of the matter is that this did get pretty big and now we have someone with male genitals in our girls’ locker room when we are changing,” she said.

The Daily Signal spoke with five girls who attend the same high school as Student A, four of whom oppose the student’s use of their locker room and one who supports it.

The Daily Signal also spoke with parents and the state chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, which represents Student A in the lawsuit.

What became clear is that neither side is pleased with the final agreement the district reached with the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights, suggesting that public schools are not sure how best to deal with the difficult issues surrounding transgender students’ use of gender-specific facilities.

Privacy in the locker rooms

The Department of Education’s investigation into alleged discrimination found that “the district honored Student A’s request to be treated as a female in all respects except her request to be provided access to the girls’ locker rooms.”

This included granting the transgender student “unlimited” access to the girls’ bathrooms and allowing the student to play on the girls’ sports teams.

In lieu of granting access to the girls’ locker rooms, the school at one point installed a bank of lockers in a private bathroom and encouraged the student to invite friends who were comfortable changing there to move their lockers. This was meant to avert Student A from being forced to change alone.

Student A wasn’t happy with the setup and sought equal access to the locker area because “she wanted to be a girl like every other girl,” the Department of Education’s report said.

But on this front, the school administration wouldn’t budge.

The school originally held its ground based “not only on Student A’s rights and needs, but on the privacy concerns of all students,” the Department of Education noted in its report.

That all changed Nov. 2, when the school received the report saying if it did not change its policies to allow Student A into the girls’ locker rooms, the government could suspend or terminate the school’s federal education funding for violating Title IX regulations.

Title IX is the federal law that bans discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program. Experts disagree whether the law applies to transgenders’ use of separate facilities, although courts in Pennsylvania and Virginia ruled it does not.

Both those cases are being appealed.

To avoid charges of discrimination, District 211 reached an agreement with the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights. In it, the school promised to provide Student A access to the girls’ locker room throughout the duration of the student’s time there.

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, District 211 receives more than $5 million in federal funding each year.

The federal agency and Illinois school district reached the deal “based on Student A’s representation that she will change in private changing stations in the girls’ locker room,” the report said. Since Student A’s use of the privacy curtains is non-binding, legal experts say it is not clear what would happen if the student decided to change out in the open.

But even if Student A does abide by the arrangement, those who oppose the student’s use of the girls’ locker rooms say they’re still uncomfortable with the settlement.

“When she’s walking in and out of the privacy curtain, what happens when you’re in a state of undress?” a sophomore on the lacrosse team asked rhetorically, adding:

Then she is fully exposed to everything in the locker room. That was my main concern with the privacy curtain. It’s not like there’s a curtain around her face, it’s not like she’s not looking at everything around her.

To accommodate girls who “wish to be assured of privacy while changing,” the district agreed to install additional private changing stations inside the locker rooms.

Those critical of the compromise say the school is giving Student A “special treatment.”

“I will always be respectful to Student A and will treat her like I would anyone else I know,” the 15-year-old sophomore told The Daily Signal. “We all have to deal with inconveniences that we have to deal with, and I don’t feel as though someone should gain special treatment over me and all other naturally born girls.”

“I can’t say that I understand [Student A's feelings], but there are so many other people that you have to consider despite yourself,” another student added.

When the school board voted 5-2 in favor of the agreement, members made clear that the deal applies only to Student A and is not a district-wide policy.

To accommodate Student A during off-campus sporting events, the Department of Education will require District 211 to provide access to girls’ locker rooms “in a manner consistent” with the home high school.

If locker rooms don’t already have them, this could mean installing privacy curtains inside all those locker rooms.

‘It’s what’s on the inside that counts’

Lauren Gregory, a 17-year-old attending the same high school as Student A, sees the situation differently. Gregory, who had no qualms going public with her name, said she believes those against Student A’s use of the girls’ locker rooms are more concerned with the “principle of being transgender rather than the locker room thing.”

“I know a lot of people are talking about privacy, and there’s been a lot of talk about anatomy … [but] the things that we value most in life are not physical,” Gregory said, adding:

Everyone tells your kids when you’re growing up, don’t worry how you look, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. I think I really carry that with me still, and I think that if someone feels a certain way and they feel like they’re in the wrong body, then I don’t have a problem with it. I think they have the right to become whoever they should be.

Gregory agreed that girls already feel uncomfortable changing in the locker rooms – some even change in bathroom stalls to prevent other girls from seeing their bodies, she said.

But Gregory believes that transgender students face similar insecurities and therefore are “not going to flaunt it or use it for bad things.”

“I know that these people who want to change their gender, they truly do not like the way that they are – the way that they were born – they don’t like the anatomy that they have, and they’re not going to flaunt it or use it for bad things,” she said. “They don’t even want it. They want to change it.””

‘Lynching the board’

The ACLU of Illinois represents Student A in the lawsuit against District 211.

In an interview with The Daily Signal, Ed Yohnka, director of communications and public policy for the organization, said the girls who spoke out deserve “a lot of credit” for attempting to be “sensitive and yet show their concerns the best way they could.”

However, Yohnka said, “The concern that is being raised on the part of these students is not the concern that actually arises in the use of the locker rooms.” He suggested that girls don’t fully disrobe for physical education and sporting events.

“This is not an instance in which she intends to be immodest or provocative in any way, shape, or form,” Yohnka said of Student A. “If one actually reads the findings from the [Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights], what they reveal is that, despite the reputed claims of the administration, students don’t fully disrobe in the locker rooms that she’s seeking access to.”

Multiple girls who spoke with The Daily Signal disputed that, saying they undress in the locker room for various sporting events, including lacrosse. They added that most sports teams share the same locker room.

“It’s a misguidance people have about high school girls not changing their entire clothes,” the lacrosse player said.

Students say showering hasn’t been an issue in this case because of the way the PE and sports programs work, although the school has a swim requirement that could affect future cases.

The ACLU’s Yohnka said the concern about Student A’s anatomy is simply “hysteria” created by the school administration.

“This administration has gone on television and talked about our client’s anatomy,” Yohnka, criticizing the school’s decision to go public with the negotiations, told The Daily Signal. “If they had done this to any other student in this district, the parents would be there lynching the board.”

Reached by The Daily Signal, a spokesman for District 211 officials said they would let previous statements and actions speak for themselves.

In October, when Supt. Daniel Cates went public with the complaint filed with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Right, he put out a statement defending the administration’s original position of limiting Student A’s access to the girls’ locker room.

In a message published in a newsletter, Cates wrote: “District 211 has supported – and continues to support – transgender students and their families while always balancing the rights and concerns of all students we serve.”

Some parents in District 211 told The Daily Signal that the school should have made the complaint public earlier than October so that the community could have been more involved in the school’s formulation of policy.

“We just want to decide this as a community first, instead of just quickly responding to the government, who has no business telling us what to do at a local level, especially on this,” Vicki Wilson, a mother of a sophomore, told The Daily Signal.

Wilson has been active in the debate and is a member of the group D211 Parents for Privacy.

Yohnka suggested that the ACLU would have preferred that the school administration had reached a final agreement with the Department of Education before making the dispute public.

“I’m not denying for a moment that they shouldn’t have shared a resolution, but I think there’s a way to, first of all, reach a resolution first,” Yohnka said. “At the time that they had made their announcement, they were still negotiating with [the Department of Education.] … It created this frenzy around all this as opposed to simply announcing we’ve reached a settlement, this is what it is, this is what it entails and really being prepared to do the educational piece.”

He added:

One of the things they might have thought to do was to use this moment as an opportunity to educate everyone involved in the community, in the school, et cetera, about these particular issues, but of course instead they decided to go out and engage in what really was a cynical public relations campaign in which you had a grown man on television talking about a young woman’s body.

The dispute is far from over, and if another transgender student comes along, the high school might have to address the situation again.

“The school district says at the end of the day that they’re still going to limit unfettered access to locker rooms based on anatomy, which fundamentally still misunderstands the notion of what it means to be transgender,” Yohnka said. “The anatomy in some ways scientifically is the least important indication of gender identity that there is, and yet they seem to be relying so heavily on it.”

To avoid facing the same problem, lawmakers in Illinois are considering addressing the issue at the state level.

“This is a push by the federal government to bully local units of government into adopting these kind of policies,” Illinois state Rep. Tom Morrison, a conservative Republican who has three children in District 211, told The Daily Signal.

“This patchwork of policies is making it very confusing for parents and students and visitors to these schools,” Morrison said. “It would be helpful to have some guidance and guidelines that establish clear boundaries for bathroom and locker room policy.”

Emergency meeting

In early December, the District 211 school board called an emergency meeting to reconsider its decision to change its original position and instead allow Student A full access to the girls’ locker rooms.

The meeting drew a large crowd, with students and parents telling The Daily Signal that people came from all over the state.

Sources attributed the high attendance to groups such as the ACLU that advocate on behalf of transgender rights. Before the meeting, those groups sent out press releases telling members their support was needed. One ACLU press release read:

There were many supportive voices at the board meeting last week. However, the opponents to fairness made up the majority of speakers. We’d like to see more supporters turn out on Monday and could use your help. If you are able to attend or otherwise want to help out, please email us.

Parents and students said they were frustrated to see the situation evolve from addressing the specific situation of Student A to a larger debate on transgender issues.

“It was kind of sad to see a bunch of people who didn’t care about the student; they just cared about getting their own agenda in place, and then they left,” the sophomore lacrosse player told The Daily Signal.

“It was very interesting to see,” she added. “It was very eye-opening about the world of politics.”

That day, the sophomore didn’t just learn a lesson in politics. She learned that speaking out about sensitive issues didn’t have to be so scary.

“I’m only a sophomore … my face will forever be known as the one who spoke out against Student A,” the student said of her concerns for the future. “I was worried I was going to ruin my time at my high school.”

When asked what she was so worried about, she said she and her friends feared being called “bigots, insensitive, inhumane, discriminatory, homophobic.”

“There are so many,” she said of the labels.

But to her surprise, school the next day was largely the same. Those who disagreed with her comments still treated her with respect.

“Disagreement is not discrimination,” she said.

I think that’s something that’s important for adults to recognize – that we need to be loving and concerned and care for each other even if we don’t agree sometimes.

Draconian new transgender guidelines for NY City

Welcome to your future, America. If New York City is at the forefront of trendsetting social science experiments - and it often is - you are in trouble unless you bow to political correctness and refer to transgendered people using the proper pronoun.

That's right. You can now be charged with discrimination under New York City law if you refer to a female transgender as "him" or "Mr."

Reuters:

New York City has warned landlords, employers and businesses they could be running afoul of the law by purposely calling a transgender woman "him" or "Mr." when she prefers a female title and pronoun, or by barring her from using a women's restroom.

New guidelines detail the legal protections of transgender and gender-nonconforming New Yorkers and what constitutes discrimination under the city's Human Rights Law, the New York City Commission on Human Rights said on Monday.

Some 25,000 transgender and gender non-conforming people live in New York City, where discrimination based on gender identity and expression has been illegal since 2002.

"Today's new guidelines strengthen those laws by ensuring that every transgender and gender non-conforming person in New York receives the dignity and respect they deserve," Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement.

The guidelines said dress codes requiring men to wear ties or women to wear skirts are discriminatory.

Failing to provide employee health benefits for gender-affirming care or failing to accommodate people undergoing gender transition, such as medical appointments, could violate the law as well, they said.

"It's a huge step forward and really catapults New York City to the forefront of the struggle for transgender rights," said Michael Silverman, executive director of the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund, a non-profit law office based in New York.

"This is an extremely positive development for transgender New Yorkers who face enormous rates of discrimination, unemployment and difficulty accessing things like health care that people take for granted."

The idiocy of these new guidelines guarantees a swarm of lawsuits filed by transgenders for every perceived slight. It puts businesses and landlords in a straight jacket, making them walk on eggshells so as not to offend transgendered people. As we've seen many times, it doesn't take much to "offend" someone who looks to make a political statement about their particular cause.

There is also the issue of " gender queer" people who claim to be both man and woman. Dealing with someone like that will make business people's heads explode.

You would hope that some brave souls would challenge this lunacy in court. But don't hold your breath. These guidelines are the logical outcome of previous attempts to legitimize transgendered and other "non-comforming" sexual identities.

I don't think even Huxley could have envisioned such a world.

http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/crime-to-misgender-transsexual-transgender-person-nyc/
IT IS NOW A CRIME TO ‘MISGENDER’ A TRANSSEXUAL OR TRANSGENDER PERSON
Incidents that are deemed “wilful and malicious” will see property owners face up to $250,000 in fines, while standard violations of the law will result in a $125,000 fine. For small business owners, these sums are crippling.

12/27/15

DID YOU CALL A TRANSGENDER OR TRANSSEXUAL PERSON “HE” OR “SHE” WHEN THEY PREFERRED TO BE CALLED “ZHE?” ACCORDING TO A NEWLY UPDATED ANTI-DISCRIMINATION LAW IN NEW YORK CITY, YOU COULD BE FINED AN EYE-WATERING $250,000

“Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” Jude 1:7 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: SO HERE’S THE REALLY FUNNY PART IN ALL THIS. YOU BELIEVED THEM WHEN THEY TOLD YOU IT WAS ALL ABOUT “TOLERANCE” AND “ACCEPTANCE”, WHEN IN REALITY IT WAS ALL ABOUT CONTROL. THE LGBT MAFIA NOW CONTROLS THE NARRATIVE, AND ANY OBJECTIONS TO THE CONTRARY IS NOW CONSIDERED HATE SPEECH. AND IT WILL BE PUNISHED. HARSHLY. IT IS STARTING WITH MASSIVE FINES, BUT WILL END WITH IMPRISONMENT AND EVEN WITH THE EXECUTION OF THE DISSENTERS. THESE ARE THE NEW NAZIS, AND YOUR REEDUCATION CAMP IS WAITING TO RECEIVE YOU. THE DICTATOR MAY BE WEARING PINK, BUT THAT WILL NOT SOFTEN THE BLOW.

In the latest, astonishing act of draconian political correctness, the NYC Commission on Human Rights have updated a law on “Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Expression” to threaten staggering financial penalties against property owners who “misgender” employees or tenants.

Incidents that are deemed “wilful and malicious” will see property owners face up to $250,000 in fines, while standard violations of the law will result in a $125,000 fine. For small business owners, these sums are crippling.

It’s not as simple as referring to transmen “he” or transwomen as “she,” either. The legislation makes it clear that if an individual desires, property owners will have to make use of “zhe,” “hir” and any other preferred pronoun. From the updated legislation:

THE NYCHRL REQUIRES EMPLOYERS AND COVERED ENTITIES TO USE AN INDIVIDUAL’S PREFERRED NAME, PRONOUN AND TITLE (E.G., MS./MRS.) REGARDLESS OF THE INDIVIDUAL’S SEX ASSIGNED AT BIRTH, ANATOMY, GENDER, MEDICAL HISTORY, APPEARANCE, OR THE SEX INDICATED ON THE INDIVIDUAL’S IDENTIFICATION. MOST INDIVIDUALS AND MANY TRANSGENDER PEOPLE USE FEMALE OR MALE PRONOUNS AND TITLES.

SOME TRANSGENDER AND GENDER NON-CONFORMING PEOPLE PREFER TO USE PRONOUNS OTHER THAN HE/HIM/HIS OR SHE/HER/HERS, SUCH AS THEY/THEM/THEIRS OR ZE/HIR

Other violations of the law include refusing to allow individuals to use single-sex facilities such as bathrooms that are “consistent with their gender identity,” failing to provide employee health benefits for “gender-affirming care” and “imposing different uniforms or grooming standards based on sex or gender.”

Examples of such illegal behaviour include: “requiring female bartenders to wear makeup,” “Permitting only individuals who identify as women to wear jewellery or requiring only individuals who identify as male to have short hair,” and “permitting female but not male residents at a drug treatment facility to wear wigs and high heels.”

In other words, if a bar owner prevents male bartenders from wearing lipstick and heels, they’ll be breaking the law. They’ve now got a choice between potentially scaring off customers, and paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines. Regardless of the establishment’s clientèle or aesthetic, every property owner will be forced to conform to the same standard.

This is the latest in what Spiked Online editor-in-chief Brendan O’Neill calls “The Crisis of Character” in the west, in which identities become grounded in subjective interpretation rather than objective reality. The state is now forcing society to recognise the subjective identities of individuals, regardless of how absurd or surreal they may seem. In New York City, recognising someone’s identity is no longer a matter of case-by-case common sense and courtesy. It’s zir way or the highway. source

80 primary school pupils a year seeking help to change gender – charity

Children as young as four already ‘transitioning’, says Susie Green, chair of Mermaids charity

Up to 80 primary school-aged children a year in the UK are now seeking help towards potentially changing their gender amid signs of classmates encouraging each other to do so, a leading charity working in the area has disclosed.

In some cases children as young as four are already in the process of “transitioning” to another sex, according to Susie Green, chair of Mermaids, a charity which provides support for families of children and teenagers with gender identity issues.

Meanwhile some schools are seeing signs of a cluster effect, with a number of pupils coming forward to seek support towards a possible change after one takes the first step, she said.

8 YEAR OLD BOY ETHAN LEARNS TO BECOME AN LGBT DRAG QUEEN MAKEUP ARTIST
"Society needs to steer away from what is typically known as the gender roles and stereotypes and accept the fact that it's OK for a boy to wear makeup to express himself as an artist," the mom said. "This does not define his gender identity nor his sexual preference. He's just exploring and being a kid! Being judgmental and close-minded on such issues not only is hurtful to our children, but it also inhibits their freedom of self-expression and prevents the opportunity for them to embrace their true identities."

1/8/16

http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/8-year-old-boy-ethan-becomes-lgbt-drag-queen-makeup-artist/

AN 8-YEAR-OLD BOY NAMED ETHAN REALIZED ONE OF HIS DREAMS THIS WEEK WHEN A MAC COSMETICS ARTIST TAUGHT HIM THE ART OF DRAG QUEEN MAKEUP.

“Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back. Remember Lot’s wife.” Luke 17:28-32 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: THIS IS THE REAL TARGET OF THE LGBT TRANSFORMATION OF AMERICA – OUR CHILDREN. HOW DO YOU ENSLAVE A NATION? ADOLF HITLER KNEW THAT IT HAD TO START WITH THE CHILDREN WHO KNEW NOTHING OTHER THAN THE AGENDA THEY WERE FORCE FED. RIGHT NOW, IN 2016, WE ARE RAISING AN ENTIRE GENERATION OF GODLESS CHILDREN WHO ARE BEING TAUGHT THAT THE LGBT LIFESTYLE IS THE NORM INSTEAD OF THE WICKED SIN IT TRULY IS. WE WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE.

Florida makeup artist Joey Killmeyer has worked in the makeup industry for the better part of 15 years, having honed his skill-set in the likes of the Miss America pageant. When Ethan and his mother walked into the MAC store, he told Killmeyer that he wanted to learn how to do makeup like he had seen on the Internet through various YouTube videos, such as Jeffree Star’s makeup tutorials.

HITLER KNEW THAT TO CONTROL THE CHILDREN WAS TO CHANGE THE FUTURE:

“WHEN AN OPPONENT DECLARES, “I WILL NOT COME OVER TO YOUR SIDE,” I CALMLY SAY, “YOUR CHILD BELONGS TO US ALREADY… WHAT ARE YOU? YOU WILL PASS ON. YOUR DESCENDANTS, HOWEVER, NOW STAND IN THE NEW CAMP. IN A SHORT TIME THEY WILL KNOW NOTHING ELSE BUT THIS NEW COMMUNITY.” – ADOLF HITLER, MAY DAY 1933

“When Ethan and his mom, Season, came into the store, I felt an immediate connection,” Killmeyer said. “He reminded me of myself at that age. It touched my heart that I was able to help him learn what he wanted to know.”

Ethan’s mom, Season Wilwert, told The Huffington Post that she hoped her openness with her son’s creative desires would inspire other parents to embrace the unique qualities of their own children.

“Children need to be loved unconditionally, nurtured and encouraged to discover themselves through their true talents and passions,” she said. “By doing so, and receiving the necessary support from parents, they are building confidence and security in who they are. We as parents should be our child’s biggest cheerleader.”

“Society needs to steer away from what is typically known as the gender roles and stereotypes and accept the fact that it’s OK for a boy to wear makeup to express himself as an artist,” the mom said. “This does not define his gender identity nor his sexual preference. He’s just exploring and being a kid! Being judgmental and close-minded on such issues not only is hurtful to our children, but it also inhibits their freedom of self-expression and prevents the opportunity for them to embrace their true identities.”

Olympics Loosen Rules to Allow Pre-Op M-to-F Transsexuals to Compete with Women

There’s great news for adventurous male Olympic hopefuls: if they declare themselves women and reduce their testosterone below 10 nmol/L for at least 12 months prior to competition, they can compete against ladies.

There’s even better news for these men; according to transgender guidelines approved by the International Olympic Committee, genitalia does not serve as a prerequisite. The guidelines state: “To require surgical anatomical changes as a pre-condition to participation is not necessary to preserve fair competition and may be inconsistent with developing legislation and notions of human rights.”

Cyd Zeigler at OutSports.com reported on the policy change.

The IOC held a “Consensus Meeting on Sex Reassignment and Hyperandrogenism” in November at which they created the new guidelines, loosening prior rules adopted in 2004 to allow transgender athletes into the Games. The previous rules required that transgender athletes must have undergone external genitalia changes and removal of gonads, as well as obtaining legal recognition of their assigned sex  from appropriate official authorities.

The new guidelines attempt to justify themselves by citing various societies’ acceptance of fluid gender identity, writing, “Since the 2003 Stockholm Consensus on Sex Reassignment in Sports, there has been a growing recognition of the importance of autonomy of gender identity in society, as reflected in the laws of many jurisdictions worldwide.”

The IOC ignores evidence that the fairness of male to female transition still leaves men larger in general than the women they compete against. As Robert S. Beil, M.D., of Montefiore Medical Group, acknowledged, “MTF trans people tend to be bigger, and may have certain strengths from before they started using estrogen.” As noted in a study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine:

The decision to categorically restrict male to female transsexual athletes from competing in a given sport as females rests on two critical assumptions. The first is that most people exposed to testosterone from puberty onward will develop physical and/or physiological attributes that contribute to a distinct performance advantage over most women. Although the performance boundaries between male and female athletes have narrowed in the past several decades, there are distinct gender differences that exist on average.The second assumption needed to justify restricting male to female transsexual participation in female events is that these attributes can withstand the hormonal manipulation of sex reassignment, thereby giving the male to female transsexual athlete an unfair competitive advantage. Certainly, there are some effects of testosterone that cannot be reversed, including (most notably) its effect on postpubertal height in men. Men are on average taller than women, with the pubertal growth spurt accounting for most of the gender difference.

After acknowledging that surgery is unnecessary for trans athletes to compete, the IOC guidelines pontificate, “The overriding sporting objective is and remains the guarantee of fair competition. Restrictions on participation are appropriate to the extent that they are necessary and proportionate to the achievement of that objective.”

Here’s how that “fair competition” works, according to the guidelines:

Those who transition from female to male are eligible to compete in the male category without restriction.

Those who transition from male to female are eligible to compete in the female category under the following conditions:

The athlete has declared that her gender identity is female. The declaration cannot be changed, for sporting purposes, for a minimum of four years.

The athlete must demonstrate that her total testosterone level in serum has been below 10 nmol/L for at least 12 months prior to her first competition (with the requirement for any longer period to be based on a confidential case-by-case evaluation, considering whether or not 12 months is a sufficient length of time to minimize any advantage in women’s competition).

The athlete’s total testosterone level in serum must remain below 10 nmol/L throughout the period of desired eligibility to compete in the female category.

Compliance with these conditions may be monitored by testing. In the event of non-compliance, the athlete’s eligibility for female competition will be suspended for 12 months.

Joanna Harper, a transgender medical physicist who attended the November meeting, explained further, “The waiting period for trans women goes from two years after surgery to one year after the start of HRT. This matches up with the NCAA rules and is as good as anything. The waiting period was perhaps the most contentious item among our group and one year is a reasonable compromise.”

http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/man-braids-are-the-latest-assault-on-masculinity/
MAN BRAIDS ARE THE LATEST ASSAULT ON TRADITIONAL MASCULINITY AND BIBLICAL VALUES
It started with the man bun, and after America got time to get comfortable with that idea, it was kicked up a notch with the man braid. Soon there will be a line of facial makeup and mascara for men, too. Oh wait, my bad, that's already here as well.

1/21/16

MAN BRAIDS ARE 2016’S NEWEST HAIR TREND FOR MEN, AND THE LATEST ASSAULT ON BIBLICAL VALUES

“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”1 Corinthians 6:9,10 (KJV)

I understand that men in different countries and cultures will wear rasta braids or what have you, I get that. But that’s not what this is. The new man braids trend here in the United States is nothing more than a blurring of the gender lines and the weakening of male masculinity. Call it the “fruit” of the work of the LGBT Movement, call it part of the end times falling away, call it whatever you like. Honestly, it’s sad and a sad indictment of the times we live in.

It started with the man bun, and after America got time to get comfortable with that idea, it was kicked up a notch with the man braid. Soon there will be a line of facial makeup and mascara for men, too. Oh wait, my bad, that’s already here as well. Huffington Post writes plenty of articles like “7 Tips To Wearing Makeup Every Man Who Wears Makeup Should Know” for the makeup-centric pseudo-male.

“The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.” Deuteronomy 22:5 (KJV)

Long hair is not effeminate of itself, Jesus had long hair and there was nothing queer about him. How you wear your hair, though, can be a different matter altogether.

Be a man, and leave the braids and buns where they belong, with the women.

Cross-Dressing Boys Protest Buchanan High School’s ‘Sexist’ Dress Code

In a surprise vote Jan. 27, 2016, Clovis Unified School District trustees went against recommendations that would have allowed boys to wear long hair and earrings and removed language that says dresses and skirts are for girls. Read more here: http://www.fresnobee.com/news/local/education/article57827983.html#storylink=cpy


Boys wear dresses at Buchanan High School to protest Clovis Unified dress code

“The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.” Deuteronomy 22:5 (KJV)

Today we tell you about Buchanan High School in Clovis, California, that like many high schools across America, has a dress code. In that code of dress, they would like girls to dress like girls and boys to dress like boys. But in today’s society that has been perverted and distorted by the LGBT Agenda, those out-dated and antiquated notions must be tossed out the window. The LGBT “vision” for America is a genderless, sexless, Godless, amoral and immoral society where there are no rules and whose motto is the Luciferian “Do As Thou Wilt“.


The American Civil Liberties Union says the school’s policy violates gender expression protected under California law. A petition to approve a gender-neutral dress code had over 3500 signatures on Monday. “The students of Buchanan High School are proving that dress codes are not only sexist, insulting and unnecessary, but they also prohibit the reason all students go to school in the first place,” Mic.com said, adding that a person’s clothing should not determine his or her education.

The current dress code policy, set in 1975 and applying to all schools in the district, states that “male haircuts may not fall below the mid-point of a standard stand up shirt collar and earlobes must be visible.” It also states that earrings are “not appropriate or acceptable” for male students.

So in other words, they want boys to look like boys, and girls to look like girls. Sounds about right to us.

WHEN YOUR SON SAYS, 'I'M A ZEBRA!'

Exclusive: Linda Harvey ties emerging animal 'identities' to 'demonic influence'

If you worry your daughter Melissa may be drawn to the notion of becoming “Mike” instead, there’s another storm brewing for concerned parents.

How about the daughter who swears she’s a dolphin living in a human body

The next special-interest group demanding “rights” may be humans who claim an animal identity.

I don’t mean those much-debated, unethical experiments in animal-human hybrids, but actual biological males or females who drift beyond obsessive fandom for Batman or Spiderman, werewolves and vampires.

We’re talking about people dressing as animals, even mutilating their bodies in the service of a “fins-fur-and-feathers” delusion.

A recent story making the rounds describes a girl in Norway who believes she’s a cat. She meows and hisses when dogs are near. Her fake ears and tail authenticate the total cat identity.

Will we soon hear screeching demands that school restrooms offer litter boxes so cat-girls can feel included and “safe”?

She is hardly alone. Among recent well-publicized animal pretenders are Leopard Man, Tom Leppard, whose spotted tattoos cover his body; Katzen the Tiger Lady (a performance artist); and Eric Sprague, the lizard man, who sports a split tongue.

And there’s the parrot man in England, with ears cut off to more closely resemble his pet parrot. He hopes soon to have his nose surgically altered into a beak.

One Pittsburgh man believes he’s a dog, a persistent delusion since childhood. He doesn’t worry about money since he lives on the trust fund left him by a parent. He is also a regular at “furry” conventions, gatherings growing in popularity for people who have animal identities, serious or fanciful.

“Furry” meetings in San Jose, Chicago and Pittsburgh attract thousands of attendees and feature X-rated workshops for adults, role-playing, gaming, story-telling, science fiction, and even sessions on activism – “Power and Privilege in an Anthropomorphic World.”

We are tempted to laugh this off as immature silliness, but history shows this fascination may develop into a more prevalent subculture.

When people don’t have the sense and protection of the Holy Spirit as a result of faith in Christ, phantasms abound in the spiritually unsettled soul. At the top of the list of idolatrous practices in human history is nature worship.

This current trend has a name: therianthropy. An insightful paper defines it as follows: “Therianthropes are individuals who identify as part human and part non-human animal in a biological, mental and metaphysical capacity.”

Non-Christian spirituality is frequently infused with animal worship. Egyptians believed cats and crocodiles were sacred. Native American Tlingit tribes of the Northwest created totem poles depicting animals associated with various superstitions, like the thunderbird, eagle, raven and bear. Modern Hinduism still reveres cattle.

And then there are the half-animal, half-human demigods. The Greeks had the minotaur and satyr. West Africans still revere the mermaid goddess, Mamiwata.

And shamanism, practiced in virtually every non-Western faith, routinely consorts with presumed animal spirits with the objective of absorbing the strength of the beast.

Christians and Jews do not engage in any of this.

Judeo-Christian faith forbids nature worship of any kind and intimate human/animal contact. Almighty God is always separate from His creation in Judeo-Christian doctrine. For a human to desire to descend to the level of an animal would be among the gravest of sinful impulses, since it would implicitly repudiate the blessing of having a soul with an eternal destiny.

The re-emergence of animal reverence as a dalliance of bored or misguided Western youth is yet one more symptom of the spiritual desert America is becoming.

Assuming the cat-girl, lizard-man and other animal identities are not simply attention-grabbing behaviors, such confusion leaps beyond the child with an imaginary friend.

In the individual listings at the website WitchVox are numerous sacred animal references and identities, demonstrating how occult practices and nature worship go hand-in-hand. One personal listing says:

“I have gone from being an eclectic Wiccan in my younger days, to a solitary general pagan. … But in all that time, only one thing within me has remained the same. And that is the wolf. … I am a therianthrope, spiritual at that.”

Another pagan, a married bisexual, describes his path: “I resonate extremely strongly with dragons and their mythologies. …” He is also very fond of gaming. And it’s no surprise that immoral sexual practices frequently accompany nature worship and animal obsession.

There’s an obvious biblical analysis, one that applies to gender confusion as well: demonic influence. Into a vacuum rushes all kinds of evil. The lives of too many teens and young adults are spiritual wastelands, ripe for dark deception.

Untold numbers of parents worry about children who seemed detached from real life while preoccupied with Web connections that validate often disturbing fantasies.

When those fantasies take the form of animal “spirits” – or demonic beings masquerading as such – this is beyond a passing hobby. It may be Satan’s latest laugh as Westerners turn over their young to the ungodly culture.

This is not to diminish, by comparison, the horrifying path of the family dealing with a loved one deceived into gender “change,” which can never actually happen. A girl who binds healthy breasts to deny her feminine anatomy, or the male who seeks castration, both display profound mental and spiritual disturbance.

The idea of transformation into another species is utterly contrary to Christian doctrine. For one thing, animals can’t engage in moral choices.

Your cat prowls for mice and doesn’t give it a second thought. Would a werewolf be excused from accountability? How convenient.

Jesus Himself affirms that humans were designed as male and female humans (Matthew 19). Tampering with human identity mocks Paul’s advice to “present your bodies as a living sacrifice” as a demonstration of Christian worship (Romans 12:1).

Sadly, the great sin of unbelief can be expressed through denying one’s gender and even one’s humanity.

We must resist all the emerging artificial, distorted and inhuman “identities” spawned by pop culture, aided by the darkest forces of evil.

De Blasio Signs Executive Order: All City Bathrooms, Male or Female, Open to Anybody
Prediction: Longer lines at the women's restroom.

 New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio signed an executive order Monday taking all gender restrictions off of city-owned bathrooms -- meaning anyone, male or female, can enter any bathroom, for male or female, at city playgrounds, pools, or offices without worry or hesitation and will never have to show an ID to prove your identity.

“Access to bathrooms and other single-sex facilities is a fundamental human right that should not be restricted or denied to any individual,” the mayor said. “Every New Yorker should feel safe in our city and this starts with our city’s buildings.” Except women, apparently, who now must share public restrooms with strange men. That must make them feel very safe.

On Facebook, de Blasio posted a message proclaiming an end to discrimination:

 The Associated Press reports that the bill "doesn't require agencies to build new single-stall restroom or locker room facilities, but instead enforces that all individuals, including those who are transgender or gender non-conforming, are free to use single-sex facilities consistent with their gender identity."

The report goes on to say that public schools are exempt from the new law, but only because there is already a policy at NYC schools that allow use of locker rooms and bathrooms no matter a person's gender identity.

With a population of over 8 million, the new law effects an estimated 25,000 gender non-conformists, including transgender individuals, which is .3% of the total population.

Texas Superintendents Vote to Require Athletes to Show Birth Certificates to Prove Gender

School district superintendents in Texas recently voted to require student athletes to provide proof of their gender by submitting a copy of their birth certificate.

The new policy, passed by a 586-32 vote, ensures that boys do not play on girls’ teams and girls do not play on boys’ teams.

“Member schools may not permit boys to try out for or participate under the jr. high school or high school athletic plans designated for girls’ teams,” the policy reads, noting the same for girls. “Member schools that offer cross country, golf, swimming, tennis, track and field and/or wrestling individual athletic plans may not permit mixed plans for boys and girls.”

It also prohibits boys and girls from wrestling against each other.

“Gender shall be determined based on a student’s birth certificate,” the policy requires. “In cases where a student’s birth certificate is unavailable, other similar government document used for the purpose of identification may be substituted.”

“The background behind it, the reasoning behind it, is to just create a level playing field and to make sure that nobody gains an advantage,” Brad Thiessen, Athletic Director at Amarillo Independent School District, told KFDA-TV. “With that kept in mind, the birth certificate is the easiest way to determine gender.”

But transgender advocacy organizations have condemned the move, stating that it will require those who identify as transgender to obtain new birth certificates. The groups state that doing so is costly and takes time, and would deny some students “an equal opportunity.”

“At the high school level, we should be encouraging participation for all students,” Chris Mosier, the founder of TransAthlete.com, told the Associated Press. “Texas school leaders have a responsibility to ensure that transgender athletes can participate in a way that is safe, comfortable and affirming of their identity.”

But others are supportive of the requirement. Peter Sprigg, the Senior Fellow for Policy Studies at the Washington, D.C.-based Family Research Council, said that schools are right to separate the genders.

“Our position at FRC is that government entities, including schools, have no obligation to recognize a change in gender identity from the biological sex at birth,” he told the Baptist Press. “This is especially important when it comes to athletics because there are undeniable physical differences between the sexes.”

“From a Christian perspective, the Bible says several times ‘male and female He created them’ and this is a part of the created order,” Sprigg continued. “From a theological perspective, to seek to change one’s gender is a rebellion against God’s created order.”

He said that students who are struggling with their gender identity should be offered compassionate counseling to “help them overcome these feelings rather than simply indulging feelings that are contrary to nature.”

“Common sense is thrown out the window in our politically correct culture,” Steve McConkey of the Wisconsin-based 4 Winds Christian Athletics also said in a statement. “A 6’10” male basketball player who decides to play as a female has skeletal and muscular advantages that would take years to reverse by hormones. The P.C. advocates avoid this subject or give faulty research trying to prove their point.”

The new policy is expected to go into effect on Aug. 1.

North Carolina passes bill blocking LGBT protections

The North Carolina legislature on Wednesday passed a sweeping bill overturning gay and transgender protections at the local level and requiring students to use public restrooms that correspond to their biological sex.

Gov. Pat McCrory, a former Charlotte mayor, signed the bill hours later, according to the Associated Press.

State lawmakers pushed the measure in response to a nondiscrimination ordinance adopted in the city of Charlotte that, among other things, allowed people to use the bathroom that matched with their gender identity. Legislators said immediate action was necessary to protect children and women from sexual predators who might pose as transgender to gain access to women’s restrooms.

But gay rights groups called the measure blatantly discriminatory and condemned it as the most extreme bill of its kind in the nation.

“Legislators have gone out of their way to stigmatize and marginalize transgender North Carolinians by pushing ugly and fundamentally untrue stereotypes that are based on fear and ignorance and not supported by the experiences of more than 200 cities with these protections,” Sarah Preston, acting executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of North Carolina, said in a statement.

The bill was introduced Wednesday morning as part of a special session called specifically for this purpose. It passed overwhelmingly in the Republican-controlled legislature, but the Democratic minority in the Senate expressed its displeasure over the bill by walking out before the vote, the AP reported.

The effort is the latest attempt this year by state legislatures to halt the expansion of gay and transgender rights in the face of religious opposition or concerns over restroom privacy. Several of these efforts have already failed; South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard (R) recently vetoed a bill that would have required students to use the bathroom that corresponded with their biological sex at birth. A similar bill in Tennessee died in committee this week.

The Georgia state legislature passed a measure earlier this month aimed at shoring up religious liberties, which gay rights groups condemned as discriminatory. In a sign of the sort of opposition these types of bills are provoking, Disney threatened to stop making films in the state, cloud computer firm Salesforce.com warned it will move its business and the National Football League suggested it may pass over Atlanta for future Super Bowls if the governor signs it.

The company Dow Chemical on Wednesday tweeted its opposition to the North Carolina measure.

Still, the concern over access to women’s restrooms has proven a powerful one. Last fall, voters in Houston repealed an anti-discrimination measure after critics labeled it a “bathroom bill” and raised the specter of sexual predators in women’s restrooms.

Transgender woman says she was r@ped in Stonewall Inn bathroom

http://nypost.com/2016/03/28/transgender-woman-says-she-was-raped-in-stonewall-inn-bathroom/

A transgender woman says she was raped in a unisex bathroom at the Stonewall Inn — and police are searching for the suspect they say regularly frequents the landmark gay bar.

Video surveillance clearly shows the woman entering the single-occupancy bathroom late Saturday night, soon followed by a man believed to be in his 30s, police sources say.

They remained in the bathroom for about eight minutes. That’s when the alleged **** took place, sources said. The suspect exited the bathroom, then walked back in.

The woman, who was believed to be heavily impaired by alcohol and possibly prescription pills, alerted friends and called 911 a short time later, sources said. She was taken to Lenox Hill Hospital for treatment.

Sources said the suspect regularly patronizes the Christopher Street bar on Saturday nights and may have been dealing drugs there.

“People inside the Stonewall know him,” Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said. “We hope to have him identified in the next coming days.”

Stonewall Inn, site of the Stonewall riots of 1969, is famed as the birthplace of the modern gay rights movement.

“It’s a very disturbing incident taking place in a site that’s very important historically, where something good happened in terms of creating more opportunity for people to live their lives,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said, “and to see a violent incident like this is very troubling.”

Liberal looniness has reached a new level

NY Gov. Cuomo Bans Official Travel to NC Because They Have Men's and Women's Restrooms
"As long as there is a law in North Carolina that creates the grounds for discrimination…".

North Carolina has decided that people should use the restroom according to the gender listed on their birth certificate and for that, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has banned all "non-essential" government travel to the state.

The governor wrote this declaration on Facebook, with a link to his executive order:

Quote
app-facebook
Governor Andrew Cuomo
22 hours ago
In New York, we believe that all people – regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation – deserve the same rights and protections under the law. From Stonewall to marriage equality, our state has been a beacon of hope and equality for the LGBT community, and we will not stand idly by as misguided legislation replicates the discrimination of the past. As long as there is a law in North Carolina that creates the grounds for discrimination against LGBT people, I am barring non-essential state travel to that state.
https://www.governor.ny.gov/…/governor-cuomo-bans-non-essen…

The majority-supported North Carolina law directs all public institutions to offer only men's and women's restrooms and single-occupancy, or a family, restroom, but not the so-called gender-neutral type that transgender individuals are demanding across the country. According to CBS News, "Transgender people who have transitioned to the opposite sex wouldn’t be affected if they get their birth certificate changed."

A year ago almost to the date, Gov. Cuomo issued a similar executive order when he banned "non-essential state travel" to Indiana because that state believes in religious liberty and vows to protect the rights of people of faith from being forced to do things against their beliefs, such as perform same-sex marriages.

Maybe the best solution is for government officials to just go ahead and ban all non-essential government travel paid for by taxpayers. Now that would make a statement!

This is insane!! Really, i hope the Lord drops some judgments here soon.

Washington governor bans state travel to North Carolina

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee has joined other government officials in banning nearly all official travel to North Carolina because of the state's law halting anti-discrimination rules.

Under the law signed by North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory last week, cities and counties can't pass measures protecting people based on sexual orientation and gender identity when they use public accommodations. The law was spurred by a Charlotte ordinance that allowed transgender people to use the restroom that aligns with their gender identity.

Inslee on Tuesday joined the governor of New York and the mayors of Seattle and San Francisco, who have banned anything but essential travel to North Carolina on the public's dime. In making the announcement, Inslee praised Washington's law that requires buildings open to the public to allow transgender people to use bathrooms and locker rooms consistent with the way they identify.

The travel ban is "consistent with our state's approach to tolerance, fairness and a lack of discrimination," Inslee said to reporters. "And I do think these things — they're mostly symbolic — but symbolism is important when it comes to ending discrimination in our country."

Washington's law, which went into effect under the guidance of the state Human Rights Commission in late December, caused an outcry by some state lawmakers who put forward bills to repeal it. Many at hearings and debates on those bills argued the commission's rule would make it easier for sexual predators to abuse the law in order to assault women. Others testified there are already state laws forbidding harassment and assault, and that this would protect transgender people.

One attempt to repeal it was voted down in the Republican-controlled Senate. Others didn't gain traction in committees.

In North Carolina, lawmakers went into a one-day special session to pass their new law. McCrory has said overturning Charlotte's anti-discrimination ordinance was meant to protect the privacy of those who expect to share locker rooms and bathrooms with people who have the same anatomy.

Human Beings Have Only Two Genders
March 28, 2016

Says … The American College of Pediatricians

David Potter

My jaw dropped as I read a recent article featuring a statement published by the American College of Pediatricians warns of the harms of telling children that gender is a matter of personal preference. You can access the full statement here.

The statement contains eights propositions. Here are some highlights:

    1. “Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: “XY” and “XX” are genetic markers of health – not genetic markers of a disorder. …

    2. “No one is born with gender. Everyone is born with biological sex.”

Gender awareness develops over time as a child grows. Gender is an awareness of one’s sexuality. A girl identifying as a boy, or vice versa, does not constitute a third sex.

    3. “A person’s belief that he is something other than his biological sex is at best confused thinking. …

    4. “Puberty is not a disease and puberty-blocking hormones can be dangerous. …

    5. “According to the DSM-V, As many as 98% of gender confused boys and 88% of gender confused girls eventually identify with their biological sex after naturally passing through puberty.

    6. “Children who use puberty blockers to impersonate the opposite sex will require cross-sex hormones in late adolescence. Cross-sex hormones (testosterone and estrogen) are associated with dangerous health risks including but not limited to high blood pressure, blood clots, stroke and cancer …

    7. “Rates of suicide are twenty times greater among adults who use cross-sex hormones and undergo sex reassignment surgery. …

    8. “Conditioning children into believing a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse.”

We can certainly argue over making a distinction between sexuality and gender, since such a distinction gives wiggle room to those who want to allow something other than two biologically determined sexes. Maybe we could substitute “sexual awareness” for gender. Aside from that, this declaration is remarkably good. We can expect major pressure on the American College of Pediatricians to modify or retract it.

I would go one step further. God determines our sex at conception. Refusal to accept our natural sexuality is ultimately rebellion against God, as are all other sins. May God give us a heart of compassion for victims of political correctness and perverse cultural pressure!

Controversial LGBTQ Acceptance Week begins at San Ramon school
4/11/16

SAN RAMON, Calif. (KGO) --
 A controversial LGBTQ Appreciation Week at Windemere Ranch Middle School in San Ramon got underway Monday morning and it appears some students are choosing not to take part, even after the school modified the curriculum due to parental concerns.

More than 100 kids' parents still don't want their kids to hear the message, so they will go to the multi-purpose room during the lesson or will just go home early.

They have a pass for that so they won't be pulled out of class and singled out - a concern of many parents.

"We have about 10 percent of our students whose parents have opted them out of the lessons this week," Principal Dave Bolin said.

The student leadership team came up with the idea to dedicate the week to issues facing the LGBTQ community.

One mother said her daughter is on that leadership team but she will not be teaching the lessons with the rest of the team because of religious reasons.

"The teacher told me she had to teach to students about LGBT so I am not comfortable with that, because my daughter is a Christian, she grow up in a Christian environment, so we are not comfortable," parent Cindy Seo said.

Other parents worried middle school kids are too young for the subject. "We talk about things pretty openly, I have my views. He's going to develop his views. I kinda figure, well, I wish it was maybe a little later into high school period of time but it's here, it's what it is," parent Phil Lim said.

But Lim decided to send his son, as did the majority of parents. Their kids will watch videos and have discussions at the end of each school day this week.

"What we are talking about is four days for about 10 or 15 minutes each day, not talking about all day long. It's probably less than an hour that we are talking about this. We are talking about acceptance and respect for everyone," Bolin said.

Bolin said Friday will be a Day of Silence to recognize what some gay and transgender students experience.

One parent did make good on the promise for a walkout and is keeping the student at home for the entire week.

Bathroom Crisis In America: The National Debate Over Gender-Neutral Bathrooms Goes Viral

Should public facilities continue to offer separate bathrooms for men and women?  In 2016, this has become a political “hot potato” that is causing emotions to run high on both sides of the debate.  Many liberals consider the push for gender-neutral bathrooms to be on the cutting edge of the civil rights movement in the United States.  Meanwhile, many conservatives consider separate bathrooms for men and women to be a matter of basic moral decency.  What both sides of the debate can agree on is that this is an issue that is not going away any time soon.  Gender-neutral bathrooms are popping up in public places all over America, and the Obama administration has even installed one in the White House.  Unfortunately, these gender-neutral bathrooms can have some very serious unintended consequences as you will see below.

U.S. colleges and universities are at the center of this debate.  All over the country student groups are pushing for gender-neutral restrooms, and many institutions of higher learning are now starting to implement them.  The following comes from an editorial in the Harvard Crimson that addresses the transition that is now taking place at that university…

The need for gender-neutral restrooms is profound, and their expansion is long overdue. Gender-neutral restrooms are critical for the safety and well-being of BGLTQ students, and it is vital that they are installed more widely throughout campus. While it is commendable that some of the Houses have started to implement gender-neutral restrooms, single-gender bathrooms are the majority, especially in residential buildings. The process by which students can petition for gender-neutral restrooms in their dorms remains inconsistent and opaque. Additionally, very few gender-neutral restrooms exist in academic buildings.

Of course other institutions of higher learning are far ahead of Harvard in this regard.  In fact, there is one university in New York City that only has gender-neutral restrooms at this point…

The Cooper Union, a small but prestigious art and engineering university in New York City, has taken the bold step of making every single bathroom on campus gender-neutral.

Instead of being classified as “men’s,” “women’s,” or single-occupancy restrooms, all facilities at the Cooper Union will carry descriptive signs describing exactly what lies within. Former men’s rooms, for instance, are now described as “urinals and stalls,” while former women’s rooms now carry the label “stalls only.” Regardless of their type, all bathrooms will be open to whomever wants to use them. According to Inside Higher Education, Cooper Union appears to be the first college in the country to entirely de-gender all of its bathroom facilities.

Unfortunately, when men and women start using the same bathrooms, really bad stuff can happen.

This is something that the University of Toronto found out the hard way…

The administration at the University of Toronto was recently enlightened on why two separate washrooms are generally established for men and women sharing co-ed residencies.

The University is temporarily changing its policy on gender-neutral bathrooms after two separate incidents of “voyeurism” were reported on campus September 15 and 19. Male students within the University’s Whitney Hall student residence were caught holding their cellphones over female students’ shower stalls and filming them as they showered.

Anyone with half a brain could have figured this out.

If you allow young men into areas where young women are exposing themselves, some of those young men are going to try to look.  We are a nation of voyeurs, and our young men have been trained by thousands of hours of television and movies to think of women as sex objects.

As I wrote about yesterday, it has been estimated that 68 percent of all Christian men watch pornography on a regular basis.  Considering what our men are doing behind closed doors, do you really want them around when women are trying to shower or use the toilet?

I don’t mean to be crude, but this is the reality of the situation.

Sadly, the University of Toronto doesn’t seem to get the message.  The rule change at that one residence hall is only “temporary”, and no changes have been made to the rules at other residence halls…

The University concluded that while the changes were made in the specific residence hall of the voyeurism incidents, “there has been no change to the designation of gender-neutral washrooms in the other University College Residences or elsewhere on campus as a result of these incidents.”

I suppose that it is “politically incorrect” to think that there will be problems if young men and young women are using the same restrooms.  The officials are the University of Toronto clearly believe in what they are doing, and they don’t plan to reverse course now.

But I would suggest that it is quite naive to put men and women in the same public bathrooms and just assume that everything will work out just fine somehow.

And we have seen problems start to happen in non-academic settings as well.  Just consider what recently happened at a public swimming pool in the Seattle area…

A man claimed a right to use a women’s locker room at a public swimming pool after his partial undressing there caused alarm.

According to Seattle Parks and Recreation, women alerted staff at Evans Pool staff when a man wearing swim trunks entered the women’s locker room and took off his shirt.

When staff told him to leave, the man reportedly said “the law has changed and I have a right to be here.”

Ultimately the man was not arrested, and he later returned to the women’s locker room while young girls were changing…

No one was arrested in this case and police weren’t called, even though the man returned a second time while young girls were changing for swim practice.

What is going to stop other sickos like this from putting on a dress and demanding that they have every right to sit there and watch women change at public swimming pools all across the nation?

In the end, the only thing that will stop it is if laws are passed, but that is not going to be as easy as you may think.  In fact, the state of North Carolina has created a massive national controversy because of the law that was just passed there…

In the face of travel bans from at least five states, 10 cities and two counties, North Carolina’s governor issued an executive order Tuesday that he said restores some protections to gays in the state.

Gov. Pat McCrory’s order, signed in the state capital of Raleigh, does not change North Carolina’s controversial law, which he signed March 24 and became effective immediately. It prohibits counties and municipalities from passing anti-discrimination ordinances and requires transgender people to use public bathrooms and locker rooms that match their gender at birth.

As you can see, this is becoming a major political issue all over the nation.

Should what do you think the solution is?

Over 20 years ago when I was in college, I ended up using the women's bathroom BY ACCIDENT (b/c I was heavily pre-occupied with something at the time) - what happened was I ended up walking in thinking I was in the men's bathroom, then the minute I got out, I saw a girl walking in and I was like "WHOOAAAHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!". It was one of the most embarrassing moments of my life!

Ultimately, look how much everything has decayed spiritually, albeit very, very, very badly now - it's as if it's come to a point now where you just can't tell the difference b/w opposite genders anymore, and no one cares if both genders share whatever (whether it's bathrooms, or whatever).
