Michigan Physician Assistant Valerie Kloosterman was exercising her First Amendment right to practice and express her faith when she requested a religious accommodation to her employer’s requirement that she use “gender-identity-based pronouns” and participate in or refer patients for “gender-dysphoria-related surgeries and drugs.”

In an 11-page, single-spaced Sept. 27, 2022, letter to officials with the University of Michigan Health and University of Michigan Health – West, attorneys with First Liberty Institute told the health system that it should reinstate Kloosterman to her position and “assure her that, going forward, it will fulfill its legal obligations to respect its employees’ religious consciences.”

Firing Kloosterman violated the First Amendment, Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, and various Michigan statutes, according to Michael Berry, senior counsel for the Plano, Texas-based public interest law firm that specializes in defending religious freedoms.

The letter noted that “before firing Ms. Kloosterman, Michigan Health blatantly denigrated her religious beliefs, attempted to compel her to speak against her conscience and make referrals for medical services that violate her conscience, discriminated against her for her religious beliefs, and refused to reasonably accommodate her religious beliefs.”

Those actions were carried out against a 17-year employee who had consistently received superlative performance reviews, including one in which her supervisor observed that “Valerie goes way beyond the call of duty when dealing with patients, follow up and professional responsibility. She is very ethical [and] responsible and treats all with respect.”

Jordan Pratt, also a senior counsel with First Liberty, observed in a statement regarding the Kloosterman firing that health care professionals should never have to choose between practicing their faith and keeping their jobs.

It’s bad medicine to force religious health care professionals to choose between their faith and their job. Valerie provides excellent medical care for every patient, but she cannot in good conscience refer patients for experimental drugs and procedures that violate both her religious convictions and her medical judgment. Nor can she use biology-obscuring pronouns that violate her religious beliefs and could cause patients to miss potentially life-saving screenings. It is intolerant of Michigan Health to demand that medical professionals like Valerie abandon their religious beliefs and their medical ethics in order to remain employed.

At the center of this controversy is Kloosterman’s strong, principled religious faith, which is precisely what the Founders intended to be protected by the First Amendment. It would be no different if Kloosterman was an atheist and had been fired for refusing to participate in compulsory prayers or Bible studies as a condition of employment.

Berry made clear in the letter the vital role Kloosterman’s faith plays in her life and her life’s work:

Ms. Kloosterman is a Christian and longtime member of a United Reformed Church. She believes that God created humankind male and female, that one’s sex is ordained by God, that one should love and care for the body that God gave him or her, and that one should not attempt to erase or alter his or her sex, especially through drugs or surgical means.

She believes that she must not speak against these truths by using pronouns that contradict a person’s biological sex. As a Christian, she also believes that God has ordained the sexual function for procreation, that children are a gift from God, and that—absent compelling reasons—one should not sterilize oneself. Moreover, as a Christian medical professional, she believes that it would be sinful to assist a patient in procuring sterilizing drugs or surgical procedures designed to erase or alter his or her sex.

In her medical judgment, according to the letter, she views “hormone therapy” and “gender reassignment surgery” as experimental procedures that thus far lack credible validation in peer-reviewed, long-term studies. She also believes such procedures result in damaging side effects, including bone density loss, infection, nerve damage, chronic pain, loss of sexual and urinary functions, psychological trauma, and other serious complications.

Kloosterman asks only to be reinstated and assured of her ability to continue providing medical care to all who need it and come to her. If the University of Michigan Health refuses to do so, this case will almost certainly end up in federal court, where it is difficult to see any outcome short of the justice she seeks.

Let it also be noted here that woke trans madness includes a dangerous intolerance that cannot abide individual freedom of choice and reflection was made clear during Kloosterman’s lengthy attempt to obtain a religious accommodation by Thomas Pierce, program director for the Department of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI), who insisted that she use the mandatory language and prescriptions.

When she respectfully indicated that she could not do so because of her religious beliefs and because of her independent medical judgment, but that she would use patients’ names in place of pronouns to respect their wishes, Thomas Pierce grew hostile, visibly angry with tight fists and a flushed demeanor, and attacked her religious beliefs.

Among other things, he told Ms. Kloosterman that she could not take the Bible or her religious beliefs to work with her, either literally or figuratively; that given her religious beliefs against gender identity based pronouns and “gender reassignment surgery,” she was to blame for transgender suicides; and that she was “evil” and abusing her power as a health care provider.

Clearly, diversity, equity, and inclusion do not include men and women of faith for ideological obsessives who have no qualms whatever about using every power at their disposal to force the rest of us to think and act as they do.

They are, in short, the enemies of freedom and human creativity.

US Air Force Academy holds seminar promoting ‘transgender visibility and awareness in our Air Force’

Every second spent on this kind of thing is a second taken away from training cadets to fight and win wars. But get with it, man! The idea that the military should be devoted to winning wars is so 1945! This is 2022! We have other priorities now, and the Chinese, Russians, jihadis, North Koreans et al are laughing uproariously.

“Air Force Academy Holds ‘Transgender Visibility’ Seminar,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, September 26, 2022:

The United States Air Force Academy on Thursday held a seminar promoting “transgender visibility and awareness in our Air Force.”

The “discussion” session focused “on awareness for transgender communities in the military,” according to a copy of an invitation for the event obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Events of this nature are part of a wholesale push by the U.S. military to foster a more culturally inclusive environment. Critics say this type of training is part of a woke cultural agenda that is being mainstreamed by the Democratic Party’s far-left flank. The Army, for instance, mandates gender identity training and instructs its officers on the best time to offer subordinates gender-transition surgery….

The first 40 cadets to attend the seminar received a free lunch….

There ain’t no such thing, my friends.

Ohio school district promotes NEA ‘LGBTQ+ resource guide’ with instructions on prostitution, abortion

The idea here seems to be to create an unbridgeable rift between parents and children and render the children weak, pleasure-obsessed, emotionally stunted individuals who are totally dependent upon the state and ripe for conquest.

“This Ohio School District Is Promoting an ‘LGBTQ+ Resource Guide’ With Instructions on Sex Work, Abortions,” by Elizabeth Troutman, Washington Free Beacon, September 23, 2022:

Teachers in an Ohio school district are wearing name badges that students can scan with their phones to access an “LGBTQ+ resource guide,” which includes instructions on how to get abortions and “organize like a sex worker.”

Hilliard City School District participates in the National Education Association’s “I’m Here” program, which encourages teachers to wear the badge. The group says the program is supposed to educate teachers on how to respond to LGBT students. But a Washington Free Beacon review found that the QR code takes students to resources that describe abortion as the removal of “pregnancy tissue,” encourage gender transitioning without parental consent, and promote sex work….

“The badge has a QR code that once scanned takes you to a website that has extremely inappropriate information, and as a parent that crosses the line,” Hilliard City parent Lisa Chaffee said.

Hilliard City superintendent Dave Stewart said the badges only concern “adult learning,” though the website from the QR code provides resources aimed at K-12 students. After backlash from parents, the district advised teachers to cover the QR code on the back of the badge, according to a statement from Stewart….

“LGBTQIA+ students should be respected, affirmed, and protected in Texas schools, even if they do not have the full support of their parents or guardians,” says “Free to Be Me: A Toolkit to Protect LGBTQIA+ Students’ Rights.”

Another link in the guide takes students to a post called “Organize Like a Sex Worker: Learning from Worker and Organizer Kate Adamo.” The post says recognizing that “sex work is work” is “critical to ensuring the reproductive and sexual liberation of everyone.” Kate Adamo, the “sex worker” interviewed in the post, compared “transphobia or homophobia, being anti-abortion, or anti-sex work” to eugenics.

Sex workers “face stigma, judgment, and pushback from both the Christian right, and sex work exclusionary feminists (SWERFs) on the left,” Adamo said.

Another link promotes a project from Planned Parenthood Toronto with videos like “Are you queer enough to be here? Spoiler Alert: YES!” and “Sex acts that don’t get enough play.”…

The resource guide also provides a handbook to help minors understand their gender identities, which says “sex assignment does not take into account one’s true gender identity.”

“Your true gender may be different than the gender that a doctor assigned you, which is perfectly normal, valid, and wonderful,” the handbook reads.

The Hilliard City School District did not respond to a request for comment.

Oklahoma Republicans Set to Give $90 Million to Children’s Hospital That Chemically Castrates Kids

Oklahoma? That can’t be right—is what you’re thinking. Oklahoma is a deep-red state run by Republicans as far as the eye can see! This is what the 2020 election map looked like in Oklahoma:

How is it possible that the Republicans there are about to hand over $90 million in tax dollars to the woke Oklahoma University Children’s Hospital (OUCH), some of which will no doubt be used on their Roy G. Biv gender clinic that chemically castrates kids and refers them for body-destroying surgery?

The answer to that is still unclear. But according to their omnibus bill that’s about to be voted on this coming Thursday, they’re handing over millions without question to doctors who transition so-called “trans kids” with harmful puberty-blocking drugs and who admittedly refer perfectly healthy children for unnecessary surgeries that will not only sterilize them but could leave them in pain for life. Mark Ousley of the “UnWokeable” podcast has been trying to alert the public to the dangerous and unscientific experiments being done on children by OUCH doctors.

On the OU website, the hospital advertises the types of “care” they offer to children with gender dysphoria. (Emphasis mine.)

As a participant in the Roy G. Biv program, you benefit from the gender-affirming scope of treatment that includes:

Discussing concerns or questions about gender
Pausing puberty to further explore gender
Managing gender-affirming hormone therapy
Helping find surgeons who perform gender-affirming surgeries
Coordinating individual and family therapy, as needed
Collaborating with schools
Assisting with legal name or gender marker changes
Addressing common adolescent issues, including mood-related or menstrual problems

Ousley showed the results of those “gender-affirming” surgeries next to the hospital’s own admission that they encourage and facilitate body-destroying surgeries like phalloplasty, removes healthy tissue from the forearm, leaving it irreparably deformed, to create a non-working franken-penis that is sewed onto a female’s vagina. These appendages often require multiple painful surgeries and often result in incontinence problems, loss of sensation, an inability to orgasm, and sterility.

The “pause” of puberty, as they call it, requires taking a chemical castration drug called Lupron. This drug can have life-long side effects, the worst of which may still be unknown.

After I posted about this on Twitter and expressed my disgust that Oklahoma Republicans are not doing anything to stop it, Republican state Sen. Nathan Dahm replied to me and blew the whistle on the shocking reality. It’s even worse than I had imagined.

“I’ve had legislation for several years in a row that would stop these surgeries & ‘transitioning’ but OK State Senate ‘leadership’ refuses to allow the bills to even be heard in committee. Gutless cowards. Please do use your platform to call them out on it,” Dahm wrote. “Greg McCortney refused to hear the bills when he was chair of Health committee. And he apparently cut a deal to get promoted to Floor Leader. He was replaced by Paul Rosino as chair of the Health committee, who has also refused to hear the bills,” he continued, naming names.

Dahm also wrote that he will not be supporting the omnibus bill, which has yet to be named, that includes the funding for the gender clinic hidden under “mental health” for children.

PJ Media has reached out to both McCortney and Rosino for comment on Dahm’s allegations. At the time of publishing, neither had responded. If they do respond, we will update this story.

RELATED‘Gays Against Groomers’ Organizes to Join Parents in the Fight Against Sexual Grooming in Schools

How can Republican legislators not act to criminalize gender experiments on children? The New York Times recently published a poll showing that 70% of registered voters oppose teaching gender-cult theology in school. That sample included a lot of Democrats. Of the Republicans, 89% opposed it. Oklahoma is full of Republicans. Republican voters do not want far-left gender ideology taught to their children nor imposed on them by the medical communities. Why aren’t Republican legislators there going for an easy win? Instead, they appear to be ignoring the takeover of a very influential children’s hospital by the gender-cult adherents with no fight whatsoever.

If Senator Dahm is to be believed, they’ve actively blocked attempts to outlaw it.

Why?

How much money is the University of Oklahoma pouring into Republican coffers? These are all questions we have asked Republicans in Oklahoma, and we look forward to getting answers from them.

Many Americans who are stuck in states run by Democrats are scratching their heads and wondering if there’s anywhere safe to go. Personally, I’m looking for a real conservative state with real conservatives governing it for my retirement days. But the pickings get more anorexic every day. The news that Oklahoma Republicans are phoning it in and letting far-left kooks run all over them is upsetting. Oklahoma always had the reputation of being one of the most conservative states in the nation, a distinction it should lose after this news breaks.

It isn’t hard to stand up to this evil masquerading as medicine. Ron DeSantis has outlawed the teaching of gender theology to children in K-3rd grade. He should have gone all the way to 12th grade, but it’s a start. State legislators in Florida are also working on making hormone treatments and “gender-affirming surgeries” on children illegal. Texas, too, has made strides in criminalizing medical experimentation on children. Attorney General Ken Paxton wrote the following opinion making it clear that these clinics are abusing children under current child abuse laws.

I. Executive Summary Based on the analysis herein, each of the “sex change” procedures and treatments enumerated above, when performed on children, can legally constitute child abuse under several provisions of chapter 261 of the Texas Family Code.

• These procedures and treatments can cause “mental or emotional injury to a child that results in an observable and material impairment in the child’s growth, development, or psychological functioning.” TEX. FAM. CODE § 261.001(1)(A).

• These procedures and treatments can “caus[e] or permit[] the child to be in a situation in which the child sustains a mental or emotional injury that results in an observable and material impairment in the child’s growth, development, or psychological functioning.” Id. § 261.001(1)(B).

• These procedures and treatments can cause a “physical injury that results in substantial harm to the child.” Id. § 261.001(1)(C).

• These procedures and treatments often involve a “failure to make a reasonable effort to prevent an action by another person that results in physical injury that results in substantial harm to the child[,]” particularly by parents, counselors, and physicians. Id. § 261.001(1)(D).

Why haven’t Oklahoma Republicans done the same? Worse, why are they about to hand over millions of dollars to the Pied Pipers leading children down a path of no return?

California to legalize state-sponsored trafficking of children combined with child mutilation and castration surgeries in the name of transgenderism

BY ETHAN HUFF

(Natural News) Is California on the verge of becoming a sanctuary state for child transgender trafficking? The state’s legislature is definitely trying to make it happen.

Senate Bill 107, introduced by Scott Wiener, a prominent Democratic state senator, was recently passed and now awaits a signature from Gov. Gavin Newsom. If signed, SB 107 would allow the Golden State to take custody of out-of-state minors who want to become “trans,” but who are prohibited from doing so in their home state.

Even if parents object, minors would still be allowed to travel to California and receive “gender-affirming care” in the form of surgical castration, a hysterectomy, and whatever Big Pharma gender-bending pharmaceuticals are needed to become their “true selves.”

The bill received “overwhelming Democratic support,” passing both the House and Senate in California on August 31. (Related: California legislators have also tried to force Christian pastors to promote LGBT perversion from the pulpit.)

Newsom reportedly has until September 30 to either sign or veto the bill. He has not yet taken any action but is expected to sign the measure into law before the deadline.

Scott Wiener wants to turn California into a pedophilia and perversion paradise

Wiener, a well-known Democrat pervert, is also responsible for introducing other legislation that would allow children 12 years of age or older to get vaccinated without parental consent. He also supports mandating “Drag Queen Story Hour” events in grade school, as well as relaxing the punishments for child sex offenders.

Wiener claims that his latest child-targeting legislation is necessary because underage kids in more conservative states face increasing barriers to getting their developing breasts surgically removed in the case of females, or having their outward genitalia turned inwards in the case of males.

Efforts to protect children against this type of irreversible genital mutilation represent “brutal attacks on transgender children,” according to Wiener, who seems to be shamelessly obsessed with child sexuality and bizarre pedophilic perversion.

SB 107 comes with no restrictions or qualifications once signed. If Newsom picks up and uses that pen, underage children from anywhere will have the ability to come to California to become trans, even without their parents’ permission.

California’s courts would have the ability to assume full custody of such children, becoming their new “parent.” And these children’s parents would not have any say in the matter.

“All the court would need to prove is that the minor has been ‘mistreated or abused’ which is defined as being ‘unable to obtain gender-affirming health care,'” reports The Gateway Pundit (TGP).

“As of now, it is unclear if the child has to enter California before the law takes effect, or if the state can interfere and assist the child in traveling and accommodations.”

The bill would seem to suggest that physical presence in California is “not necessary” for a child to become the property of the state. As long as “abuse” is confirmed according to its tenets, California would be allowed to pursue custody.

“Either way, this law goes far beyond any established form of government intervention in personal family matters,” TGP explains.

The California Family Council issued its own scathing statement against the bill, warning that radical activists will surely “weaponize” it to prey on vulnerable out-of-state children.

“It’s not hard to see how activists could quickly weaponize SB 107,” the group warns about its implications.

“Since the bill instructs state agencies to ignore the circumstances of how a child came to the state for gender transitioning, SB 107 invites children to run away from their families or even be trafficked across state lines.”

Teachers Urged to “Transition” Children Behind Parents’ Backs

BY ALEX NEWMAN

SEE: https://thenewamerican.com/teachers-urged-to-transition-children-behind-parents-backs/;

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

State “education” authorities in Michigan are under fire nationwide after getting caught red-handed encouraging teachers to, among other absurdities and crimes, “transition” children to new “genders” without the consent or even knowledge of their parents. The training is almost too outrageous to believe, and yet officials are publicly defending it all.

The growing scandal, which was first exposed by prominent anti-woke activist Christopher Rufo with the Manhattan Institute, has government “school” officials scrambling to perform damage control. But parental outrage over the abuse is growing nationwide as even liberal-media polls show the public has overwhelmingly turned against this sort of brainwashing in school.  

The Michigan Department of Education program in question urges government-school “educators” to “facilitate the sexual transition of minors without parental consent,” as Rufo put it in his exposé posted on social media. The trainers also claim the notion that gender is “binary” is a “system of oppression” created by the West that must be dismantled.  

There is proof, too, as documents and footage emerge. One leaked training video for teachers features a self-styled “Black, masculine-identified, cis-gendered lesbian baby boomer” instructor named “Amorie Robinson.” During the training session, she urges teachers to familiarize themselves with the “terminology” such as “gender fluid,” “genderqueer,” or “gender non-conforming.” 

According to Robinson, children may “identify” as “asexual, lesbian, straight, gay, bisexual, queer, questioning, demisexual, demiromantic, aromantic, and skoliosexual.” Teachers should “Google on those” because “we ain’t got time today” to examine all the sexual and gender “identities” children might adopt, she said. 

Another trainer urges teachers to hide children’s sexual and gender “identities” from parents, even if discussing the child’s desire to commit suicide. “I would one-thousand percent recommend working with the student to let them guide that process,” says the trainer, Phillips-Knope, after recommending teachers refer to children as “earthlings” instead of boys and girls.  

When it became a toxic political hot-potato when blasted by GOP gubernatorial candidate Tudor Dixon, even far-left Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer was forced to condemn it. Her office sent a mild rebuke to the Department of Education and urged it to “review your training to ensure they comply with all applicable regulations, maintain department guidelines, and are reflective of best practices.”  

In an op-ed published by establishment propaganda organs, Michigan Superintendent of Public Schools Michael Rice defended the abusive “training.” In fact, he referred to them as “professional development” to “build the capacity of educators to provide safe, supportive, and inclusive school climates where all students can thrive — especially students who identify as LGBTQ+.”  

“Our local educators and support staff care deeply about their students and seek to better understand how to reach students and help them feel accepted, safe, and supported,” Rice continued, adding that anyone who calls out the madness is attempting to “bully” school staff. “Children deserve safe and inclusive environments to minimize their fears and anxieties.”  

After falsely denying that teachers were taught to keep parents in the dark, Rice went on to admit that it’s true—but it’s “for the children,” supposedly. “In a situation in which the student is concerned about abuse, neglect, or homelessness if parents are told, educators may be cautious about sharing issues of sexual orientation and gender identity with parents,” he said. 

Teachers “have a responsibility not to put children in harm’s way, even inadvertently,” Rice continued, as if government was now in charge of protecting children from their own parents and families—the very people who love them more than anyone else on the planet. “Such decisions are not made lightly and are ultimately about safeguarding the health, safety, and wellbeing of students.” 

This is a similar attitude to the one adopted by the Biden administration. As The Newman Report documented earlier this year, the U.S. departments of Justice, Education, and Health and Human Services released a video encouraging children to file federal complaints against their own families and communities if they were not “affirmed” in their chosen sexual proclivities or gender fantasies.

This is collective madness — and it is beyond evil. Adults must stop encouraging and normalizing the madness, for the same reason it would be irresponsible to talk to a schizophrenic’s imaginary friends or encourage an anorexic girl to have liposuction. This dangerous abuse of children should be prosecuted. But as has always been the case, the only true protector of a child will be his or her parents.

Black Nationalist ‘Wizard of Oz’ Remake Will Also Be LGBTQ

The Wizard Of Oz Reboot (2023) - Warner Bros Remake Directed by ‘Black-ish’ Creator Kenya Barris

BY DANIEL GREENFIELD

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

I was going to write about Warner Brothers picking Black-ish boss Kenya Barris to do a Wizard of Oz demake. While Discovery has been shedding some of the woke dead weight, Warner Brothers is still deep in the woke black nationalist business, including with BLM co-founders.

Batgirl may currently be buried, but Ta-Nehisi Coates’ black nationalist superman is probably still coming and the black nationalist Wizard of Oz project is moving forward. Considering the current political insanity, it’s bound to not only racially recast everyone except the inevitable white villains, but also include some drag queens. These days, how could it not?

“Somewhere over the rainbow, indeed! Kenya Barris tells me that LGBTQ representation will be featured in his “Wizard of Oz” remake. “The original was an allegory and a reflection of the way the world was at the time with things like the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl,” says Barris, who will write and direct the reimagining for Warner Bros. “Now we’re going to turn a mirror on where we’re at right now and take disparate characters from the LGBTQ community, from different cultural communities and socioeconomic communities, and tell a story that reflects the world. I think this is the best time to do that.”

If the Wizard of Oz is about anything, it’s about telling a story that “reflects the world”, at least through the lens of lefties whose idea of telling a story is monotonously embedding their talking points into whatever piece of intellectual property they’ve gotten their grubby hands on and then screaming that anyone who doesn’t pay money to go see it is a vile bigot.

At least they’ve been nice enough to announce that the Wizard of Oz remake will be extremely family unfriendly. Why would anyone expect anything else from Warner Brothers these days?

Your Tax Dollars Fund ‘Transgender Identity’ for Toddlers

Your Tax Dollars Fund a Group Pushing 'Transgender Identity' on Two-Year-Olds

Transgender ideology might be the most destructive concept plaguing our nation today. Countless people are being brainwashed into thinking they have been born in the wrong body and are electing to mutilate themselves in order to appear more like the gender they “identify” with. The most troubling part of the trans movement is how it is targeting children and convincing them to make life-altering decisions, the consequences of which they aren’t capable of fully understanding.

Well, I’m sorry to say that the top early childhood development organization in the country is contributing to this. Adding insult to injury, they’ve received millions in tax dollars over the years.

The group called Zero to Three, believes children as young as two years old can show signs of having a “transgender identity.” During its virtual conference this month, Zero to Three conducted sessions such as “What Does It Mean to Be Transgender and How Can You Support Kids Who Might Be?” The session description reads, “This [presentation] addresses the development of gender identity, including how early the process begins (ages 2–3), and how parents and professionals can distinguish gender exploration with the emergence of a transgender identity.”

For our VIPs: Woke Wednesday: Disney’s Creepy Baymax Character Just Got Creepier, Teaches Kids How to Shop for Tampons for Women AND Men

The organization also encourages teachers to “use tenets of Critical Race Theory” when they are working with newborns. Another session offered at the conference was called “Elevating Racial Equity in the First 1,000 Days: Protecting, Promoting, and Preserving the Health, Wealth, and Learning of Our Families and Babies.”

According to the Washington Free Beacon, Zero to Three “has received $234.68 million in funds from the Department of Health and Human Services since 2008 and is slated to receive an additional $52 million by 2027, including a $4.2 million grant from the Biden administration set to begin this month.”

So, congratulations! You’re funding this garbage.

Zero to Three claims to be nonpartisan but has spent big money supporting Democrat causes. More congratulations — you’re funding that, too.

Jill Biden Thinks It’s Un-American To Oppose Porn in School Libraries

JILL BIDEN: WE DON'T BAN PORNOGRAPHIC SCHOOL LIBRARY BOOKS FOR KIDS IN AMERICA; NO SUCH THING AS PARENTAL RIGHTS WHEN IT COMES TO SUBJECT MATTER?

Schools nationwide contain inappropriate and sometimes pornographic materials in their libraries, often under the guise of “inclusivity.” Thankfully, states like Florida are empowering parents to have more input over materials and curricula, and parents are starting to fight back against subversive and obscene materials being made available to their children.

And First Lady Jill Biden doesn’t like it one bit. In an interview with NBC News correspondent Sheinelle Jones, she argued that parents shouldn’t be able to exclude any books from school libraries.

“Parents and politicians are now weighing in on what books should be in our school libraries, and what their kids are being taught,” Jones began “Where’s the line, in your opinion, with how much of a say parents have when it comes to what their kids are learning in school? Is there a balance between, you know, ‘This book should be in the library, this book is under review—”

Related: Um…Did Hunter Biden Send Joe Biden Porn Links? 

“All books should be in the library,” Jill said, cutting off Jones before she could finish her question. “All books. This is America. We don’t ban books.”

Either Jill Biden is ignorant of what kind of materials are being made available to young children, or she doesn’t care. We’ve previously covered the kind of pornographic materials that have been put in school libraries, some of which promote the sexual activity of minors. But, Dr. Jill thinks it’s un-American to want to make sure children aren’t exposed to sexually graphic materials that groom them for pedophiles. Those damn un-American prudes who don’t want porn in schools!

 

“Mennonites Pass Resolution Repenting of Excluding Homosexuals”

At their annual assembly this summer, the Mennonite Church USA passed two resolutions on the issue of accepting unrepentant homosexuals as members. The “Resolution for Repentance and Transformation,” repenting of harm done to LGBTQ people and calling for broader inclusion, passed by a majority of 55.7% (“MC USA Delegate Assembly widens the circle for LGBTQ people,” Mennoniteusa.org, June 1, 2022). An “organization resolution” updated the membership guidelines so that pastors are no longer prohibited from performing “same-sex covenant ceremonies.” That one passed by a majority of 82.8%.

The Mennonites trace their roots to the Anabaptists of Europe and to Menno Simons (1492-1561) in particular. Beginning in the 17th century, large numbers of Mennonites settled in America and Canada. They are divided into about 40 groups, some more conservative than others. The Mennonite Church USA is the largest group with about 530 congregations and is the most “liberal,” meaning apostate, in that they follow man’s thinking rather than God’s Word. (In May 2022, the Lancaster Mennonite Conference, with its 180 congregations, separated from the Mennonite Church USA for its changing views on homosexuality.) There are several conservative, separatist Mennonite groups, including Biblical Mennonite Alliance, Conservative Mennonite Conference, Eastern Pennsylvania Mennonite Church, and Ohio Wisler Mennonite. There are also small numbers of “old order” Mennonites that are similar to Amish, traveling in horse and buggy and practicing plain dressing and shunning. (source)

Methodist Emory University in Atlanta: ‘Christian’ college now giving students pronoun options

Can pick from: 'He/Him/His, She/Her/Hers, They/Them/Theirs, Xie/Hir/Hirs, and Ze/Zir/Zirs'

A Christian college, the Methodist Emory University in Atlanta, has announced a plan that gives students a choice as to the pronouns by which they are identified in school records.

The Methodist church in America is one of the traditional denominations that have come under the influence of various secular social agendas, including the LGBT agenda, and just days ago, more than 100 Florida churches filed a lawsuit to leave the United Methodist Church conference.

That follows numerous cases of individual churches fleeing the liberal agenda of the association's leadership.

Now Campus Reform is reporting that Emory officials have established a process for students to choose whether they want to be known as "He/Him/His, She/Her/Hers, They/Them/Theirs, Xie/Hir/Hirs, and Ze/Zir/Zirs."

Students will claim their preferred pronouns through the school's online system for making payments and registering for classes.

The school promises that after a student makes a choice, those pronouns will be used on class rosters and elsewhere.

Campus Reform reported the change at Emory "follows a national trend that Campus Reform has reported on in recent years."

It cited New York University as an example of schools setting up similar provisions to accommodate those social agendas.

And, "In September 2021, the University of North Dakota proposed changing its housing policy to allow students to live in dorms that matched their gender identity."

Danielle M. Bruce-Steele, of the school's office for "LGBT Life" told the Emory News Center that transition "will push the university forward to even greater inclusion of our LGBTQ community members."

The school's announcement included a statement from Christa Acampora, an official handling academic affairs.

"This change was really driven by Emory students and their desire to help us be a better community," said Acampora, "A large group of people at Emory — including staff, administrators, faculty, and students — worked to shape the policy change and enable the systems to support its implementation."

The school's online system notes that if a student's chosen pronouns are missing from the school list, there's a choice for "Pronouns not listed" to let them enter their own.

EDITOR’S NOTE: During the Biden era of rapidly metastasizing madness, the greatest madness of all may be today’s shockingly widespread campaign to indoctrinate, seduce, groom, and flat-out RECRUIT America’s children into the dark world of transgenderism. Countless LGBT activists, including many public-school teachers, have taken to proselytizing the new transgender salvation to America’s children, both on social media and within the schools themselves. Even Biden’s far-left Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra fully supports taxpayer-funded amputations of healthy body parts of these vulnerable children, declaring ghoulishly, “We should help those have the life-affirming care that they need.” The result? Untold numbers of America’s kids are being led into lives of not just unending conflict, confusion, suffering, deformity, and disability, but far too often – as multiple studies prove – suicide. The whole unbelievable story – including the underlying reasons, almost entirely unreported elsewhere, for what amounts to the most massive child sexual abuse campaign in American history – is explored as never before in the July issue of WND’s critically acclaimed Whistleblower magazine, titled “WHAT’S REALLY BEHIND THE TRANSGENDER CRAZE?”

Teacher Defines ‘Fascist’: ‘Heterosexuals,’ ‘Christians’

In This High School, Kids Learn That Republicans and Christians Are Fascists

San Diego Teacher Caught Indoctrinating Students

English students at Madison High School in San Diego, California received a surprising lesson last week from their teacher. Instead of teaching students at Madison High School how to craft an argumentative essay...the English teacher shared his personal political ideology.

In Gavin Newsom’s California, the kids have a leg up on those in the rest of the country, because the Golden State has the coolest, hippest teachers. In San Juan Hills High School in San Juan Capistrano, Calif., teacher Danielle “Flint” Serio has an entire “queer library” in her classroom. And down the road at Madison High School in San Diego, a teacher has defined “fascist” with words including “Trump,” “white,” “Christian,” and “heterosexual.” The Republican Party, this sage wrote on his classroom whiteboard, “is a fascist organization that no longer fits the category of a conventional Democratic Party.” It’s not just the broad-brush slander. It’s historical illiteracy. Our schools are turning out a generation of indoctrinated imbeciles. That appears to be the goal, in fact.

The Madison High teacher’s heroic efforts to turn American schoolchildren into socialist lemmings would have passed unnoticed were it not for a student in the class who took the risk of taking photos and speaking to Christopher Tremoglie of the Washington Examiner. Both the student and the teacher were kept anonymous, however, for fear of retaliation from the teacher or vengeful Leftist school officials.

The teacher’s explanation of fascism, meanwhile, is false in so many ways that it’s dizzying. Take, for example, his inclusion of “Christian” as one of its essential components. The student whistleblower said: “He just kind of put up that [Christians] are fascists, and they support a fascist government. Immediately — he didn’t even ask the class about it. He just made the assumption right away that whites and Christians automatically support a fascist government.”

Fascism did indeed arise first in a Christian country, Italy, and reached an apex of evil in another Christian country, Germany, but it was ultimately defeated in large part due to the efforts of two other Christian countries, Britain and the United States. And fascism is inherently “heterosexual”? Does this clown not realize that every human society on earth since the dawn of recorded time has been heterosexual?

It’s unlikely that the Madison High School teacher has the faintest idea of the actual meaning of “fascism” and is likely only using the word because it is the Left’s all-purpose catchall term for ideas and groups it hates. The word itself, however, is derived from the Latin fasces, which means a bundle of sticks. The idea is that the sticks are all bound together and that there is strength in unity. This was a perfect name for a movement that advocated an all-powerful central government that would not take over the means of production, as the Communists advocated, but would leave them in private hands while forcing them to coordinate their activities with the government’s demands.

Sound familiar? It should. If any political movement in America today is fascist, it’s the Democrat oligarchy in its alliance with Big Tech and other woke corporations, including the corporate media. There is the idea of strength in unity in action, as all these corporations march in lockstep with the same ideology and same goals. That’s fascism, but you won’t hear about it at Madison High School.

The stupid, it gets worse. The student whistleblower recounts that the teacher went “to this board and writes ‘fascist’ on it, and this really struck me. He immediately made the comparison of the Republican Party to the Nazi Party. And that was really offensive to me. He listed the Republican Party and the Nazi Party as similar. And that’s just ridiculous, and I took offense to that. So I took a picture of it.” Here again, this teacher likely hasn’t the slightest awareness of the fact, that “Nazi” is a German abbreviation of “National Socialist,” which was the actual name of Hitler’s party. The National Socialist party platform actually called for the nationalization of German industries, although Hitler ultimately went the fascist route rather than the socialist one, and forced them to do his bidding while nominally remaining private companies instead. It also called for a massive expansion of the welfare system. Here again, that’s far closer to the Democrat, rather than the Republican, program.

The student noted that this wasn’t even a politics or social studies class: “This completely caught me off guard. This is an English class. This isn’t a political class or anything. I signed up for the class to learn how to write papers and stuff. I didn’t sign up for the class for a teacher to be trying to shove his ideology down my throat.”

Yes, but this is a public school in California, in 2022. Neither parents nor students should expect anything but the far-Left ideology shoved down their throats, all day, every day.

California passes new law to protect abusive parents who mutilate their children in the name of transgenderism

(Natural News) The California legislature just passed new legislation to turn the Golden State into a massive sanctuary zone for the transgender body-butchering of children.

Senate Bill 107 was overwhelmingly passed in a 30-9 vote along party lines in the wake of a federal ruling on August 26 that struck down a Biden regime mandate aimed at forcing American doctors to perform gender mutilation procedures on children who demand to become LGBTs.

With that mandate now gone, some states are passing their own protective legislation to outlaw LGBT indoctrination events such as “Drag Queen Story Hour” at public libraries and “family-friendly” drag strip shows at restaurants and bars.

California, meanwhile, is moving in the opposite direction (Related: Alabama is one of the states that recently banned transgender grooming, and California is now trying to cater to “refugees” from that state and others like it).

SB 107, we are told, will make California a giant “safe space” for transgender youth and their parents from other states to find refuge. The following Democrats voted yes on the bill, which now awaits Gov. Gavin Newsom’s signature:

Allen
Archuleta
Atkins
Becker
Bradford
Caballero
Cortese
Dodd
Durazo

Eggman
Glazer
Gonzalez
Hueso

California Democrats ignore children whose lives have been ruined by trans agenda

State Sen. Melissa Melendez, a Republican who voted against SB 107, questioned the motives of Sen. Scott Wiener, the Democrat who authored the bill. She wants to know if he is aware of its implications for the children whose lives will be forever destroyed by “gender-affirming care.”

Melendez brought up the case of Chloe Cole, who at 15 years old removed both of her breasts in a failed attempt to become a “male.” Cole, like many others, now regrets her decision to get a double mastectomy.

The day before SB 107 was passed, Cole testified for a second time before the Senate Judiciary Committee about how going trans has ruined her life.

“My parents were told that the options were transition or suicide,” Cole said at the hearing. “They complied because they were not offered any other treatment solution for my distress. My distraught parents wanted me alive, so they listened to my doctors. I was placed on puberty blockers and testosterone after expressing my gender dysphoria to my therapist, and I was approved for a double mastectomy all by the age of 15.”

“Who here really believes that as a 15-year-old I should have had my healthy breasts removed or that should have been an option? SB 107 will open the floodgates for confused children like me to get the gender interventions that many so regret. I am the canary in the coal mine.”

As you might expect, Cole also now suffers from a litany of mental health issues mostly stemming from her body being permanently butchered. She is still a female and always will be, but her chopped-up body is now a mishmash of male and female characteristics that she will carry with her for the rest of her life.

“So I easily fell prey to the narrative that if I felt different and did not want to be a highly sexualized girl, I must be a boy,” Cole went on to explain. “I obsessed over becoming a boy. I believed that all my insecurities and anxiety would magically disappear once I transitioned.”

“The mental health professionals did not try to dissuade me of this delusional belief. I was fast-tracked into medical transition after I was diagnosed with dysphoria in California.”

A Chicago children’s hospital is conspiring with local school districts to push gender transitions and gender theory on children.

The Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago has partnered with local schools to create training, guidance policy, and other resources aimed at promoting gender theory to children, including “kink,” “BDSM,” and “trans-friendly” sex toys.

According to documents obtained by activist Christopher Rufo, documents pushing “radical gender theory, trans activism, and sexually explicit materials” have proliferated in at least four Chicago-area school districts at the middle and high school levels.

“Beyond Binary: Gender in Schools” is one of the primary training documents for school officials which tracks closely with the queer theory promoted by academia.

“White, Western society has created an oppressive gender binary, falsely dividing the world into the categories of man and woman, that has resulted in ‘transphobia,’ ‘cissexism,’ and ‘systemic discrimination’ against racial and sexual minorities,” Rufo wrote of queer theory.

This training is conducted by Hadeis Safi, an “LGBTQ and Gender Inclusion training facilitator” for the hospital’s Potocsnak Family Division of Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine. Safi uses the plural “they/them” pronouns and “uses their [sic] experience as a non-binary person of color to build a reference for attendees.”

The hospital’s Gender Inclusion program claims to offer care for “gender expansive” identifying children that is “gender-affirming,” such as puberty blockers. The page also offers a “related news” section with a singular link to an article arguing that “gender-affirming care is healthcare, not child abuse.”

Training for teachers and administrators includes promoting the celebration of “gender diversity” and that staff must “affirm” any declaration of gender that does not match biological reality as well as “communicate a non-binary understanding of gender” to children.

Rufo reports that one version of the training seeks a more “gender creative” world that disrupts the “entrenched [gender] norms in western society.”

The presentation also quickly begins to set the premise for hypersexualizing children starting from 18 months old.

“By 18-24mo, children develop the ability to label gender,” the slide says. “Between 2-4 years, most children recognize gender differences, used gendered pronouns.”

“By age 5 to 6 years, most children declare a gender identity of male or female,” it continues. “Exploring gender is a very typical part of human development!”

According to Rufo, at least two of the Chicago school districts were told to offer a “Binder Exchange Program,” which teaches young girls how to bind their breasts in order to appear more masculine.

Additional resources include a link to a website that has what appears to be a dialogue about kink and BDSM, which graphically describes the sexual fetishes. It also includes articles titled “Muff Diving,” “Hot Sex Without a Hard On,” and “Butt Sex 101.”

The same website sells dildos, vibrators, “anal toys,” “penis toys,” “gender gear,” toys for kink and BDSM, and even a sticker exclaiming “every hole’s a goal.”

Another resource is a “kid-friendly website for gender-affirming gear” that sells artificial penis “packers,” “trans masc [sic] pumps,” breast binders, and “stand-to-pee” devices that appear to allow girls to act like they have a penis.

A model policy provided by the hospital to schools tells teachers to take a “gender-affirming approach” to curriculums; maintain a library offering “gender-affirming children’s books”; and allow students to use the restrooms, locker rooms, and sleep in the same rooms as students of the opposite sex.

It also instructs school administrators to keep a student’s “gender transition” secret from their families, while hiring a “Gender Support Coordinator” to facilitate the transitions of children without the knowledge of their parents.

“Beyond the lurid nature of some of the content, these documents reveal a profoundly disturbing collusion between radical gender activists in the medical system and the public school bureaucracy,” Rufo wrote in conclusion. “They have laundered the promotion of queer theory, synthetic sexual identities, and child sex toys under the guise of ‘health and education,’ devoting significant resources toward building what policy analyst Leor Sapir has called a school-to-clinic pipeline.”

“The process is simple: children learn about and adopt ‘gender expansive’ identities in schools, which then direct them to gender clinics that can provide puberty blockers, hormone therapies, surgeries, and drug regimens that often add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars in costs over time,” he said.

Chicago children’s hospital slammed for video of mom coaching adopted child to talk about being ‘non-binary’ - LifeSite

CHICAGO (LifeSiteNews) — A nationally-ranked Chicago children’s hospital is drawing backlash for a video in which an adoptive mother appeared to coach her child into discussing her adherence to radical gender ideology.

In a recently resurfaced February 2021 video published by Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago, adoptive mother Karla sat down with her adopted daughter “Tru” to “talk about gender.”

“My birth parents said that I was a girl, but they made a mistake,” Tru told Karla when asked “what is gender to you?” 

While it’s unclear what factors led the girl to allegedly adopt a divergent sexual identity, a separate video published by the hospital states that Karla herself is in a same-sex relationship.

In the video, Karla told Tru that she had also initially “assumed” her daughter was a girl and asked the child to explain when she “set” her adoptive mother “straight.”

After Tru said it began when she was “at least five or six,” Karla corrected her: “It started before that.”

“You started sending out signals,” she said. “You said, ‘Sometimes I wanna be a boy. Sometimes I wanna be a girl. Something doesn’t seem right here.’”

Agreeing with her adoptive mother, Tru added that she’s not really a boy or a girl, but “nonbinary.”

“How do you feel about being nonbinary?” Karla asked.

Karla then directed Tru to say whether or not she had spoken with the children in her class about her gender, and how it made her feel to share her pronouns.

Tru responded that she told her classmates about her gender and pronouns, and it felt “really really good.”

Daily Wire commentator Matt Walsh blasted the mother in the video during a Tuesday podcast episode.

“We’re supposed to buy that as some sort of organic conversation, while the child is obviously repeating what has been rehearsed,” Walsh said. 

The writer, podcaster, and father of a large Catholic family said watching the video made him think of his own boys who he said could spend hours “running down the shoreline excitedly picking up rocks.”

According to Walsh, the subjects the child in the video is discussing, or “the lines that she’s being coerced into repeating,” are entirely unknown to his own children, who he said have never heard the term “nonbinary” and who spend “zero percent of their time thinking about pronouns.” 

“No child thinks about any of this stuff or wants to think about it,” he said. “This has to be imposed from the outside. Their innocence is ripped away, and this is put in its place.”

The resurfaced video about the young girl’s alleged “nonbinary” gender identity is part of a “Never Fear” series published by Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago. 

Other videos feature such topics as “pronouns,” “LGBTQ+ affirming schools,” sex ed, and HIV/AIDs, all aimed at children and teens.

The hospital’s commitment to advancing radical gender ideology isn’t new.

In 2015, Lurie Children’s Hospital’s so-called “Gender and Sex Development Program” was featured in a FRONTLINE documentary about “transgender children” called “Growing Up Trans.”

Clinical services currently offered by the children’s hospital include puberty suppression, menstrual suppression, hormone therapy, and referrals for “gender-affirming” surgery, including “chest surgery, surgery involving reproductive organs, and surgery on facial structures.” The hospital states that it can begin transgender treatments for patients no older than 22, continuing until the patient turns 25.

The institution also promotes affording “transgender youth” the opportunity to have “a legal name or gender marker change,” and provides a link to an organization called the Transformative Justice Law Project (TJLP), which states it is “deeply committed” to “the universal right of gender self-determination,” along with a separate mission of abolishing prisons.

LifeSiteNews reached out to Lurie Children’s Hospital to inquire why the medical institution would advance a radical ideology that can cause irreparable psychological and physical harm to children. The hospital did not immediately respond to LifeSite’s request for comment.

And Now, the Left Moves to Normalize Pedophilia

This has been coming for years

It isn’t as if we weren’t warned. Many people have observed for years now that the total exclusion of morality from the public square, and the refusal to declare that any behavior was wrong in itself, would lead to the normalization of all manner of abhorrent behavior. Such warnings seem almost quaint now, with drag queens in primary schools and toddlers being encouraged to undergo radical body mutilation. In this insane environment, it is no surprise whatsoever that the Left is now pushing to make pedophilia as normal as a walk in the park. The assault on traditional values is total and unyielding. No quarter will be given.

The Post Millennial reported recently that “a professional counselor who works with incarcerated sex offenders defended pedophiles as a ‘marginalized’ minority in a recent YouTube upload, sparking criticism as clips from the video went viral on social media.” Miranda Galbreath, who is a licensed sex therapist, posted a video that is, at least for now, unavailable. It was entitled "Let's talk about minor-attracted persons." In it, Galbreath advocates for the use of the term "minor-attracted people" and claims that the term "pedophile" is a "judgmental, hurtful insult." She says that pedophiles are "the most vilified population of folks."

Amid all this rancid and dangerous propaganda, even “folks” is a charged word. While the Post Millennial transcribes the word as “folks,” it is likely that Galbreath said “folx,” which Merriam-Webster, a newly woke company like all the rest of them, explains is “used especially to explicitly signal the inclusion of groups commonly marginalized.” Galbreath is semaphoring to her Leftist audience that pedophiles are or should be considered to be among the Left’s protected victim groups, groups that are prized and privileged because they are supposedly “marginalized.” To redress the wrongs done by white, Christian, cis-gendered, heteronormative bigots, these people deserve special consideration and accommodation.

Galbreath claims that the term minor-attracted person “simply means that the person has an enduring sexual or romantic attraction to minors. They have not chosen this attraction… you don't get to choose to be heterosexual or gay, and you don’t get to choose to be a minor-attracted person." It’s something the poor dears can’t help, you see. Galbreath doesn’t seem to have any interest, meanwhile, in the plight of people who don’t choose to become the victims of pedophiles. They don’t choose, either, but apparently, they don’t deserve any consideration.

The Post Millennial notes that Galbreath is not just a talking head, but acts upon her ideas: “On her website, called Sexual Safe Space, Galbreath claims that she has been an active mental health counselor for over 20 years. According to the site, she provides ‘evaluation and treatment services in the community and within state prisons to folks who have committed sexual offenses.’ On her Linkedin profile, she displays experience working with the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections.” And one insane and immoral perspective leads to another: Galbreath “is also a registered member of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), which sets international guidelines and protocols for medically transitioning, including recommendations for minors as young as 14.”

Galbreath is not alone in trying to normalize pedophilia. She is just one part of a much larger push. As far back as October 2014, the New York Times published an op-ed entitled “Pedophilia: A Disorder, Not A Crime.” Those who would dismiss that on the basis of its having been an op-ed and not a news article, and thus not necessarily reflect the position of the Times itself, should investigate when the Times last published an op-ed arguing that Islam was not a religion of peace and that jihad terrorists were inspired by texts and teachings of the Qur’an itself. The Times has, of course, never published such an op-ed, and never would. But normalizing pedophilia? That fits in just fine with the Times’ agenda.

And with that of the Washington Post, chimed in on July 8, 2015, with a piece entitled “We’re shocked by every nice guy caught with child porn. But we shouldn’t be. Our image of pedophiles is completely wrong.” Even farther back, in 2012, CNN asked: “Do pedophiles deserve sympathy?” The answer was, of course, yes.

Clearly, the media elites want us to accept pedophilia as normal as baseball and apple pie. But why? If we had any actual journalists today, they would be investigating and exposing the forces behind this unseemly push to normalize what is and always will be the horrific abuse of children. But we don’t.

Wave of lawsuits coming against psychiatrists and doctors who rubber-stamped transgender mutilations and surgeries

(Natural News) Medical professionals who rubber stamp cross-sex hormones and puberty blockers in children will be held accountable for child abuse and medical malpractice. Medical professionals who push transgender surgeries and genital mutilations on their patients will soon see a wave of lawsuits.

Take for instance 19-year-old Jay Langadinos. Back in May of 2010, this Australian woman sought professional help from a psychiatrist named Dr. Patrick Toohey. After a single meeting, the psychiatrist scheduled Jay for hormone treatment and two major surgeries to remove her breasts and uterus. Jay’s endocrinologist, Professor Ann Conway, was concerned that Jay was “very young” and therefore needed “a thorough psychiatric work-up before embarking on hormone treatment.”

But psychiatrist Dr. Patrick Toohey did not provide a thorough psychiatric evaluation and did not take the time to listen to his patient. After just one meeting, he prescribed synthetic hormones, forcing Jay to develop secondary male sex characteristics. The mutilation surgeries followed soon thereafter, starting with a double mastectomy. When Jay was just 22 years old, her psychiatrist signed off on a hysterectomy, writing that there was no “psychiatric contraindication to proceeding with hysterectomy as part of gender transition.”

A decade later, Jay does not identify as a male, an assumption that was forced on her at a young age. Today, she is suing the psychiatrist for professional negligence.

Youth who were maimed into transgenderism are beginning to de-transition back to their true selves

Back when she was nineteen years old, Jay says she told the doctor that she suffered from social phobia, but this issue was ignored. If psychiatrists took a little time and got down to the root of the problem, then hormone therapy and gender-contorting surgeries would not even be considered. The hormones and procedures that Jay underwent ultimately caused early menopause, impaired psychological functioning, deep anxiety, and depression. She ultimately wanted to have children but could not. Now, she holds the doctor accountable for not recommending she get a second opinion before the hysterectomy was conducted.

The feelings, urges and thoughts of youth are complex and fleeting, but none of it has to define them for life — unless it gets taken too far. Birth gender is sacred and should be preserved and affirmed first. Jay remembers being confused about her sexuality and gender after going online and learning about gender dysphoria.

“Because of the definition of dysphoria, I thought, ‘That’s what I have.’ I decided that I must be transgender because of the discomfort that I had in my body,” said Langadinos. But after coming to an incorrect conclusion about her identity, she was not guided in the right direction. When she sought psychiatric help, she was affirmed in her confusion and further persuaded to accept an identity that wasn’t truly hers. As the hormone treatment took effect, it made her even more unhappy, and she sought further changes to “fix” herself and find some sort of happiness inside.

“As my unhappiness grew, I felt the cause of my unhappiness was because I was not male, so the answer was to change my body even more,” said Langadinos. “I had a breakdown, and couldn’t function for an entire year. I couldn’t get out of bed. I wish at the time I know how much I was hurting and why.”

Medical professionals beginning to speak out about gender-bending child abuse, genital mutilation

Victims of gender transition are rising up and telling their stories. These first-hand experiences are motivating more medical professionals to stand up for children who are preyed on by trans-activism, gender delusions, synthetic hormones, and genital mutilation. Dr. Quentin Van Meter, president of the American College of Pediatricians, called puberty blockers “child abuse” in an interview with LifeSiteNews.

“If you are interrupting that with clearly the intent of never having it go the direction that nature intended, with biological males ending up as adult males and biological females ending up as adult females, if you interrupt that, you are basically setting up a disease state,” Van Meter stated. “And then on top of that, the purpose is clear in the vast majority of kids that get on puberty blockers, they will not be allowed to go through their own natural puberty. They will be held back and then given cross-sex hormones.”

Dr. Van Meter said that puberty blockers are a gateway to surgical mutilation of healthy body parts and they have many short- and long-term side effects. “So it’s a conveyor belt. And once that patient is placed on the conveyor belt of puberty blockers, they are carried down the assembly line to cross-sex hormones. And then at the end, have an option to do surgery to mutilate their bodies to appear like the opposite sex.”

TWO “SWATTING INCIDENTS”-Marjorie Taylor Greene: They tried to have me killed AT 1:00 AM; SECOND ATTEMPT ONE DAY LATER~GREENE COMMENTS ON STUDENT LOAN “FORGIVENESS”

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene rants about being targeted in a "swatting" incident at her home and how close she could have come to being killed, reacts to people going over the top for disagreeing with her politics, and how President Biden is ruining the economy with student loan forgiveness - via.

They Want Her Dead: Marjorie Taylor Greene Swatted for Second Night in a Row

BY ROBERT SPENCER

SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/robert-spencer/2022/08/25/they-want-her-dead-marjorie-taylor-greene-swatted-for-second-night-in-a-row-n1624251;

For the second night in a row, police showed up at the home of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) in the early hours of Thursday morning, responding to a fake 911 call. Once again, it appears that someone on the Left is hoping to get Greene into a situation in which she or others in her home could be killed.

Two police officers rushed to Greene’s home in Rome, Ga., in response to a call they received at 2:53 a.m. The call, according to the Rome Police Department, was about “a male possibly shooting his family members and then himself.”

MSN reported that “the suspect, who called through an internet chat that appeared to be a suicide crisis line, falsely told police responders that a man ‘came out as trans-gender and claimed they shot the family’ at Greene’s address, the report said.” The caller gave his name as Wayne Greene and told police on the call: “If anyone tried to stop me from shooting myself, I will shoot them.” He also warned cops that “they would be waiting for us.”

At the house, there was, of course, no Wayne Greene. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene once again met the police officers at the front door, as she did in the early hours of Wednesday morning. They told her about the call and, according to the Rome Police Department, “confirmed this was a second false report.” The report added that the call can’t be traced, “due to the person(s) using a VPN.”

As Greene stated Wednesday, “This is how they get people killed… it’s like political terrorism.” Police responding to what they have been led to believe is a crisis situation could all too easily respond mistakenly but lethally to innocuous behavior, resulting in Greene’s death or the death of someone else at the house.

As Stephen Green reported Wednesday, the first caller told cops that someone had been shot inside Greene’s home. The Rome News-Tribune said that the call led cops to think “a man who had been shot multiple times was in the bathtub at Greene’s home. The caller also stated there was a woman inside the home and possibly children with her. When officers arrived, Greene assured them there was no issue at the home.”

For that call, we know the motive. The Rome Police Department stated: “After we cleared the call and went back in service, Rome-Floyd 911 received a call from the suspect, claiming responsibility for the incident and explaining his/her motives. It was a computer-generated voice. They explained they were upset about Ms. Greene’s stance on ‘trans-gender youth’s rights,’ and stated they were trying to ‘swat’ her. The report also stated that the caller claimed they are connected to a website that police said supports cyberstalking and gave the police their user name on the site.”

This makes it clear yet again: radical Leftists are totalitarians. They want their opponents silenced. They want their opponents dead. They will brook no dissent.

Greene’s spokesman Nick Dyer said: “Right now, Congresswoman Greene’s safety is our number one concern. Late last night, she was a victim of a political attack on her family and home. Whoever committed this violent crime will face the full extent of the law.” To that, MSN sneered that “a statement from Greene’s office… described the calls as ‘violent crimes’ even though no violence occurred.”

It’s only conservative speech that is violent, you see. Leftists actively trying to fool cops into committing an act of violence and kill a sitting congresswoman? That’s not violence. Violence is only something the other side engages in.

Greene herself was having none of it and said: “Those media companies, they’re responsible for trying to get me killed by those horrific headlines. The disgusting left, MSNBCs and the NBCs, putting headlines up there that I’m targeting trans kids, that is the biggest lie, and I should sue them for saying such things.”

That would be refreshing, particularly if her suits were victorious, but the more immediate question at hand is: will this persistent swatter be caught? If he or she is caught, will there be any serious prosecution? Or will a Leftist judge who holds the same view of Marjorie Taylor Greene as that of the swatter himself dismiss these crimes as an innocuous exercise in political protest and release the offender with a slap on the wrist, if that? The larger question is: can a committed conservative, a genuine and effective dissident from the line of the political and media elites, get justice in America today?

‘Stop Woke Act’ STRUCK DOWN: Judge BLOCKS DeSantis’ Bill Banning CRT In Schools~Parent Sues School Over Transgender Brainwashing

ACLU Backs Teachers, Students Suing to Stop Florida’s CRT Ban

BY LUIS MIGUEL

The American Civil Liberties Union is representing a group of students and teachers who are suing to put a stop to Florida’s ban on Critical Race Theory (CRT), which went into effect in July.

Florida’s Stop Wrongs Against Our Kids and Employees (Stop W.O.K.E.) Act, which was signed into law by Republican Governor Ron DeSantis in April, prohibited CRT from being taught in the Sunshine State’s classrooms.

Specifically, the legislation makes it illegal for educators to teach that one race is superior to other races or that someone is racist strictly on the basis of race or gender.

As the Washington Times notes, DeSantis has called CRT “state-sanctioned racism.” At the time of its signing, DeSantis said no one should be ashamed of their race.

“In Florida, we will not let the far-left woke agenda take over our schools and workplaces. There is no place for indoctrination or discrimination in Florida,” the governor declared at the time.

The defendants in the new lawsuit are the Florida Board of Governors of the State University System and the board of trustees from six state universities.

“The Stop W.O.K.E. Act is racially motivated censorship that the Florida legislature enacted, in significant part, to stifle widespread demands to discuss, study, and address systemic inequalities, following the nationwide protests that provoked discussions about race and racism in the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd,” the lawsuit reads.

“All educators and students have a right to teach and learn free from censorship or discrimination,” said Leah Watson, who works as a senior staff attorney with the ACLU’s Racial Justice Program. “In an effort to prevent progress towards racial justice, the Stop W.O.K.E. Act deprives educators and students of important tools to challenge racism and sexism. We urge the court to put an immediate stop to this discriminatory classroom censorship bill.”

The ACLU has asked a federal court to deem the Stop W.O.K.E. Act unconstitutional. The ACLU is one of various lawsuits against the legislation presently making its way through the courts. As of yet, no judges have blocked the law.

CRT is simply a branch of Marxist Critical Theory, which asserts that all of history has been one of an oppressing class and an oppressed class. Since no actual legal class structures existed in the United States, CRT advocates argue that the oppressed class are the non-white peoples of the country.

Part of the reason CRT had spread so far in the United States is that it is being pushed by the teachers' unions.

As TNA has reported:

The NEA … wants to “provide an already-created, in-depth, study that critiques empire, white supremacy, anti-Blackness, anti-Indigeneity, racism, patriarchy, cisheteropatriarchy, capitalism, ableism, anthropocentrism, and other forms of power and oppression at the intersections of our society.” That is, the NEA wants to indoctrinate students into believing that every person who is not a straight white man is, to some extent, a “victim of oppression.”

With three million members, affiliates in 14,000 communities across America, and a $350 million annual budget, the NEA is a powerful lobbying group that has generously contributed to liberal causes, giving millions in donations to liberal groups and Democratic candidates in the 2020 election cycle, including funneling $176,649 directly to Joe Biden’s presidential campaign, according to the Open Secrets website. The NEA, which counts Jill Biden among its long-time members, drew praise from the president as recently as Friday, who called it “one of America’s indispensable organizations.

Regardless of the inevitable opposition from the Left, DeSantis made the right call in banning CRT in Florida. For far too long, the Left has been allowed to openly indoctrinate students in not only CRT but various forms of socialism and degeneracy. And the Right’s refusal to do anything about it, other than complain, is what has permitted the culture to change so drastically within only a couple of generations.

Now, of course, other Republicans across the country are following suit in striking down CRT. The key is that victory in the culture war requires more than finger-pointing; it calls for proactive action and the willingness to use institutional power to stop the Left’s agenda.

Parent Sues School Over Transgender Brainwashing;

Proselytizing California groomers are running wild.

California parent Jessica Konen is suing her local school district for secretly indoctrinating her 6th-grade daughter into the cult of transgenderism, convincing her to change her gender identity, all while urging her not to discuss the situation with her mother because she could not be “trusted.”

The behavior of these woke teachers matters not only because parents - as opposed to the government - are supposed to be in charge of raising their own children, but also because transgenderism is a treacherous ideology that threatens the very underpinnings of both our society and Western civilization as a whole.

It is not about homosexuality or bisexuality, which Americans have become increasingly tolerant of in recent years. Many Americans are even supportive of transgender people when they are consenting adults, but they do not support groomers’ efforts to force impressionable children to renounce their birth sex and pretend to be something they are not. The rise of groups such as Gays Against Groomers, whose members are aghast at reports of little kids being forced to attend drag queen performances, shows that plenty of gays recognize it is wrong to push transgender ideology onto children.

It is about totalitarian thought control. The advocates of transgenderism, backed by the Biden-Harris regime, would force Americans to recognize an individual’s professed gender identity even if it doesn’t match the person’s birth sex. Forcing people to say things they know aren’t true is the essence of totalitarianism.

As I have written before, just about no one cared about the previously minuscule number of consenting adults having sex-reassignment surgery or hormone therapy until the Left started to demand that people think of these things as normal and forced these beliefs on children.

The Left doesn’t care about how many victims it creates, even as it breaks the fragile bodies of young people who lack the maturity to make informed decisions – decisions that will come back to haunt them in their later years.

Advocated by these radicals, puberty blockers, which can harm young people, are being prescribed for children who are now, because of incessant propaganda, reporting discomfort with their sex in record numbers. Long-term use of these drugs adversely affects brain development, bone density, and fertility but more and more medical doctors are violating the Hippocratic Oath by supporting their use on gender-confused young people.

This brings us to the case of Jessica Konen, whose young daughter was pressured to join the destructive cult.

Konen is suing with the assistance of the Center For American Liberty, a nonprofit that, according to its website, is “fighting against growing anti-free speech and anti-civil liberties trends.” The legal complaint (pdf) in the case was filed June 14 in the Monterey County office of the Superior Court of California.

San Francisco-based attorney Harmeet K. Dhillon is spearheading the legal effort. Dhillon is CEO of the Center For American Liberty.

Parents have “the right to know what is going on in their child’s school,” Dhillon told Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle,” as she explained how teachers pushed the young girl to join an “Equality Club” aimed at convincing students to embrace new gender identities.

“They invited kids, including Jessica’s daughter, to be in this club, and they told these kids, do not tell your parents, and specifically Jessica’s mom, do not tell them, they cannot be trusted,” she said.

“They gave them reading materials about transgenderism. They secretly changed the pronouns, but when in front of the parents, referred to their children by their birth pronouns. Behind the parents’ back, in the school, [they] used their new identity. All this was done secretly.”

According to the legal complaint, the Spreckels Union School District near San Jose adopted a “parental secrecy policy” that “authorizes minor children to make mature, consequential, and potentially life-altering decisions—such as what gender to identify as; how to express their gender identity, including, but not limited to, females binding their breasts so they look more like males; what name to be called; what pronouns to use; and what privacy facilities to use—with no notification to or input from parents.”

Teachers at Buena Vista Middle School in the school district took Konen’s daughter, A.G., 11 at the time, and recruited her into an “Equality Club” in which she was advised that she may be transgender and bisexual, two concepts that were not familiar to her. At one point teachers changed the name of the club to UBU, or “You Be You,” to avoid detection by parents. A.G. attended Buena Vista from fall 2018 to spring 2021 for the 6th through 8th grades.

A.G. attended a club meeting at the suggestion of a friend after 6th-grade instruction began. The girl was not interested in the discussion and decided not to attend future club meetings. But two weeks later a teacher asked her to return to the club, telling her she “fit in perfectly.” A.G. began attending the meetings again. Teachers told her at first that she was bisexual even though she did not understand the concept of bisexuality. Not long after, teachers told the girl she was transgender even though she did not grasp the concept, the legal complaint stated.

Teachers were persistent as they encouraged the child to change her name to a masculine name and present as male in order to express the new identity. Despite the emotional trauma they inflicted on the young girl, the teachers told her not to let her mother know about this because her mother supposedly could not be “trusted.”

They also forced A.G. to read articles about how to conceal her newly discovered transgender status from her mother. The teachers created a “Gender Support Plan” that directed faculty to call the daughter by a new name, male pronouns, and to allow her to use the unisex teachers’ restroom.

The California Department of Education officially encourages young children to embrace transgender identities. Even though the U.S. Supreme Court had held that parents have the right to direct the upbringing and education of their children, it is the department’s position that schools ought to keep secrets from parents; its recommended reading list promotes books for kindergartners about students undergoing gender identity transition.

During the brainwashing process, A.G. took on a new gender identity different from her female sex at birth, as well as a boy’s name and masculine pronouns, according to the legal complaint.

A.G.’s original identity went down the memory hole as teachers began referring to her by her new name and pronouns. Her name was changed in educational records and she was allowed to use the teachers’ unisex bathroom, all without informing her mother.

The school deliberately deceived Konen about her child’s assumed gender identity by using the girl’s birth name and feminine pronouns when the mother was present. When Konen was not present, the teachers resumed calling the girl by a boy’s name and using masculine pronouns.

Teachers told A.G. not to tell “her mother about her new gender identity, and by otherwise concealing facts regarding A.G.’s new gender identity from Ms. Konen.”

Konen had said she “supports her daughter, regardless of the decisions she makes. Ms. Konen simply wants to be a part of her daughter’s life and exercise her rights as a parent to direct the upbringing of her child.”

But the teachers deprived Konen of her parental rights during a crucial phase of her daughter’s development by “choosing for themselves how to direct A.G.’s upbringing regarding the major life decision of A.G.’s gender identity, and concealing critical facts from Ms. Konen, her parent.”

The teachers’ actions “also violated Ms. Konen’s and A.G.’s rights under federal and state law and inflicted serious emotional and mental harm upon them.”

This case is not an outlier.

As California and federal officials continue to advocate for transgenderism, more such lawsuits are coming.

Count on it.

Disney Set to Push More LGBTQ Propaganda on Children

BY JAMES MURPHY

SEE: https://thenewamerican.com/disney-set-to-push-more-lgbtq-propaganda-on-children/;

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

Streaming service Disney+ has hired a prominent Chicago Area drag queen to appear in a new superhero show aimed at youngsters. 33-year-old Jaren Kyei Merrell, known better by his stage name Shea Couleé, will be a part of the new show Ironheart, a part of Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), with the show set to begin streaming next year.

Ironheart will focus on a teenage superhero who creates a suit similar to the one in Ironman.

Couleé is a former winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race, a reality show featuring men dressed as oversexualized women competing for money and prizes such as cosmetics. The new hire would seem to be a part of Disney’s new “woke” agenda and what Disney executive producer Latoya Raveneau referred to as a “not-at-all-secret gay agenda” committed to “adding queerness” to programming intended for children.

“Everyone at Marvel has been so unbelievably open and receptive to my experiences and my expertise about drag,” Merrell told E! News. “And they’ve allowed me to really come into the MCU and put my very specific Shea Coulee print on the Marvel Universe.”

“It’s really so humbling to be able to crossover into a much more mainstream avenue, and push the needle forward as far as drag is concerned, in the way that it’s consumed and in pop culture,” Merrell said. “I’m so deeply excited for everyone to see what this role is, what it entails and everything it is.”

Merrell doesn’t appear to see the show as strict entertainment for children, but as a means of cultural change, as well.

“It’s going to be really impactful,” he said. “It’s going to be so smart and creative and clever and funny, and sexy. And so, so, so, so Chicago.”

At least Merrell is honest. He freely admits that “sexy” is being peddled to children via the series.

There is speculation that Merrell may portray a character known as “Shade,” a transgender superhero introduced by Marvel in 2019, but that has not been confirmed.

Disney became embroiled in “woke” controversy after far-left staff criticized management for not being vocal enough in opposition to Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law, which the LGBTQ community referred to as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill.

Fearful of “woke” activism directed at its brand, the company, which in previous generations was known for its wholesome family content, quickly pivoted and became fierce opponents of the legislation and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

“Thank you to all who have reached out to me sharing your pain, frustration, and sadness over the company’s response to the Florida ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill,” Disney CEO Bob Chapek wrote to employees. “Speaking to you, reading your messages, and meeting with you have helped me better understand how painful our silence was.”

Disney also appears to be going back on a 2019 pledge not to show R-rated material on the Disney+ platform. In July, the platform featured DeadpoolDeadpool 2, and Logan — all R-rated movies.

The phrase “Get woke, go broke” appears to be affecting Disney. Its much-anticipated animated effort, Lightyear, based on the “Buzz Lightyear” character from the beloved Toy Story series of films, has struggled to meet expectations at the box office.

Lightyear moved on from the actor who created the character, Tim Allen, a rare Hollywood conservative, in favor of leftist actor Chris Evans, who starred as Captain America in the MCU.

Lightyear features a kiss between two lesbian characters and, not surprisingly, the movie has struggled at the box office to even make up its $200 million budget.

Evans has referred to people that might resist such LGBTQ propaganda as “idiots.”

“The real truth is those people are idiots,” Evans said, adding that people concerned about propagandizing same-sex relationships with children will “die off like dinosaurs.”

Evans may think (or hope) that people who don’t want the gay agenda being aimed at children are “idiots,” but they are also theatergoers. Disney’s preoccupation with pushing LGBTQ ideology is a cultural decision, not a business decision. And it may have increasingly negative effects on “the Magic Kingdom” in the near future.
