The Scottish Government should call a halt to proposed reform of the Gender Recognition Act in order to consider the evidence more carefully, writes Murdo Fraser.Read More
Ever since the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference adopted a policy that allows males who identify as female to compete in girls’ athletic events, boys have consistently deprived Selina Soule, Alanna Smith, and Chelsea Mitchell of honors and opportunities to compete at elite levels. CIAC’s policy is at odds with Title IX, a federal law designed to create equal opportunities for women in education and athletics.Read More
As households across the United States start to receive their 2020 census packets, LGBTQ advocacy groups are ramping up efforts to ensure lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people living in the country are counted and understand what’s at stake when it comes to the decennial survey.Read More
Andorra, a small European country located between Spain and France, is set to legalize same-sex marriage.Read More
What Vogl and Freese found was that family size can also strongly influence political and social views. More specifically, they found that people who were members of large families were more likely to hold conservative views regarding abortion and same-sex marriage.Read More
The Covington Board of Commissioners Tuesday unanimously banned “gay conversion therapy” for minors in the city, calling it “dangerous and ineffective.”Read More
The Missouri Legislature is being asked to ban doctors and their workers from assisting with or doing sex changes to those under 18. Representative Adam Schnelting, R-St. Charles, is proposing to charge them with a felony and yank their professional licenses for providing gender reassignments, hormonal therapy and puberty blockers, which are different from surgically changing genitalia. The Missouri House Judiciary Committee held a public hearing this week on the legislation that would also have parents reported to the state for alleged child abuse for letting their kids have a sex change.Read More
Currently a bill to ban “conversion therapy” is being considered in the Canadian Senate (Bill C-8), as well as in multiple states in the US. Unfortunately, in most cases there is tremendous ambiguity about which practices and services are being prohibited, which obfuscates a multitude of problems: the endangerment of previously established legal rights for individuals to choose health treatments, the removal of the professional autonomy of doctors in providing treatment according to their expertise, the question of whether “sexual orientation” includes pedophilia, and the controversy surrounding medical transition for gender identity.Read More

University of Queensland law dean Patrick Parkinson, speaking in a personal capacity, conceded authorities would be worried and busy with the coronavirus but said the explosion in transgender-identifying teenagers, chiefly girls, was “another epidemic” — one that had “so far escaped public attention”.
“Social contagion” via online platforms — such as Tumblr, Reddit and YouTube — and peer groups is suspected to be a factor in the rapid rise of atypical teenage cases of the condition “gender dysphoria”, or distress about the conflict between the body and an inner feeling of “gender identity”.
In response to Professor Parkinson’s remarks, a petition was started at Change.org by 23-year-old student Jean Emmett, aka “Johnny Valkyrie”, titled “No Transphobia At University. Condemn Prof. Patrick Parkinson.”Read More
It seems counterintuitive, because it is. And yet, in the heat of a nationwide transgender debate, a group of “experts” has decided that puberty blockers, the same drugs linked to thousands of adult deaths, are good for kids.
As part of a new Pediatrics article, three doctors claim to have found “positive mental health outcomes” for minors. That’s interesting, a group of physicians is firing back, since only 2.5% of the children they studied actually took the drugs.
There are plenty of other flaws in the research, Dr. Den Trumbull told me on Tuesday’s “Washington Watch”—not the least of which is that the data actually shows “the reverse of what they’re claiming.”Read More
SURREY, United Kingdom, March 17, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Parents in the U.K. have accused teaching staff of secretly brainwashing their 13-year-old daughter to think she is a boy, according to a report in the Mail on Sunday.
According to the report, Ashleigh and Ged Barnett say they were confused when their “pretty teenage girl” started talking about feeling that she was really a boy and cutting her hair very short, before discovering that she had been having weekly one-on-one sessions with a teaching assistant in charge of the school’s LGBT group.
The Hoe Valley School in Woking, Surrey, was also reportedly calling the teenage girl by a male name and encouraging her to get changed in a boys’ cubicle.Read More
