“If the next 10 years are anything like the last five years, we’re all in trouble.” That was one grim takeaway from a panelist at the recent “Summit on Protecting Children from Sexualization.” Hosted by The Heritage Foundation and the Family Policy Alliance, the event explored how children are being exposed to sexual themes, images, and behavior at an early age. This is setting them up for emotional and physical trauma, as well as making them vulnerable to abuse.Read More
The Ugandan government’s plan to reintroduce a bill that could impose the death penalty for homosexuality is being met with defiance from the LGBTQ community in the East African nation, activists told CNN.
Ugandan Ethics Minister Simon Lokodo, in an interview with local media Thursday, said present laws criminalizing gay sex – which in theory can come with a life sentence – were not tough enough.Read More
The backlash is continuing against the gender-neutral bathrooms transgender activists are demanding. Earlier this month, I noted a story in this month’s edition of The Atlantic, written by a parent who discussed the chaos that resulted when the school decided to eliminate gender designations for student bathrooms — without consulting the parents. This parent — who is very much a liberal — described the profound discomfort of the students, some of whom simply refused to use the bathroom while at school and waited until the school day was over.Read More
From Elizabeth Warren mocking religious males as incapable of finding a wife to Beto O’Rourke’s promise to strip tax benefits from religious institutions, or Cory Booker’s assertion that Catholics use religion to justify discrimination, you see the ugly face of militant secularism and coercion.Read More
Psychological Society Says Transgender Children Should Be Able to Undergo Sex Reassignment Surgery Without Parental Permission
The Australian Psychological Society says that transgender kids shouldn’t need parents’ permission for sex reassignment surgery, and adds that pre-transition counseling is likely an “unnecessary burden.”
According to The Australian, members of the Australian Psychological Society — a 24,000-member strong organization — don’t believe that children under the age of 16 should be required to get parental permission to have sex reassignment surgery.
A federal human rights complaint challenging Canada’s policy requiring gay men to observe a waiting period between having sex and donating blood has been referred to the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal for an inquiry.
Christopher Karas, a Brampton resident, filed the complaint with the Canadian Human Rights Commission (CHRC) in 2016.
At the time of the filing, Karas told CBC News the policy was “based on fear.”Read More
As a leader of the radical feminist organization group Women’s Liberation Front, Natasha Chart doesn’t agree with conservatives on much. But when it comes to the transgender movement and protecting children from transgender ideology, she’s standing side by side with conservatives.
Chart spoke Thursday at The Heritage Foundation’s Summit on Protecting Children From Sexualization. On this week’s edition of “Problematic Women,” we sit down with her to find out why.Read More
The Supreme Court heard a group of cases yesterday that will require the justices to decide whether the 1964 Civil Rights Act applies to homosexuals and transgender individuals. The cases concern employment discrimination. The legal issues seem narrow. But the social implications are vast.
Over the last fifty years, anti-discrimination law has evolved into an all-penetrating system of social control. The original legislation forbade employers from denying employment to someone simply because he was black or she was female. But the development of legal doctrine by way of the notions of disparate impact and hostile environment gave this straightforward principle of non-discrimination a vast and complex meaning. It empowered government officials to monitor hiring and workplaces and encouraged activist organizations to file wide-ranging lawsuits.Read More
Starting July 1, 2020, all Illinois public schools are legally required to teach children LGBT history and only buy textbooks that include the topic. NPR affiliate Illinois Public Radio labeled Christian and conservative opposition to this law while it was being considered as stemming from “hate groups.”
The explicit goal of such laws, which are also in place in California, Colorado, New Jersey, and Oregon, is to make children agree with the left’s views of sexuality, which contradict the historic views of all major world religions. This is not only the open, stated goal of those pushing such laws but also explicit in the curriculum.
“Imagine a generation of Illinois students having learned the positive contributions of LGBTQ people to U.S., Illinois, world history,” Brian Johnson, CEO of the advocacy group Equality Illinois, told IPR. “I think it’s only going to have a positive effect on our society’s view of LGBTQ people.Read More
A 14-year-old girl in Canada will continue with hormone replacement therapy to become a male against her father’s wishes, a court in Canada has ruled.
A three-judge panel of the British Columbia Court of Appeals, the province’s highest court, upheld a lower Canadian court’s decision to allow the child, who has identified as male since age 11, to continue the treatments. The mother supports the hormone therapy.
The child, who lives in Vancouver, already has begun hormone treatments and desperately wanted to continue them, The Guardian reports.
Eighteen attorneys—including representatives of public health officials, the local school board, the teenager, her mother, and her father—participated in the three-day hearing, which has spurred a debate over parental rights, consent, and freedom.Read More
