Shapiro — after arguing with a young woman about how “gender is not disconnected from sex” — decided to pick a comparable category to prove his point.
“Let me ask you this. I won’t ask you how old – I will ask you how old you are, because you’re young enough that it’s probably not insulting to ask you,” he posed to the young woman, who responded, “I’m 22, so I’m probably a little bit naive, right?”
“No,” he continued. “Why aren’t you 60? Why aren’t you 60? Why can’t you identify as 60? What is the problem with you identifying as 60?”
“It’s not the same as gender,” the young woman countered. “You can’t just…”
“You’re right!” Shapiro shot back. “You can’t magically change your gender. You can’t magically change your sex. You can’t magically change your age.”
Technically there are three — masculine, feminine, and neuter — in languages that have gendered nouns like French, Spanish, and German. (At least until Throbert shows up and corrects me.) There are two biological sexes — male and female. Everything else is delusional.
During the course of the 42-second video, Denham is able to get out at least twelve f-bombs, and seems to commit at least three physical assaults.
Transgender activists are upset that the women‘s march over the weekend was not inclusive to biological men who identify as women, as the protest presented an oppressive message that having a vagina is essential to womanhood.
Saturday’s event to oppose the inauguration of Donald Trump was largely a “white cis women march,“ with too many pictures of female reproductive organs and pink hats, according to trans women and nonbinary individuals
The women‘s march had an over-reliance on slogans and posters depicting gender norms, like using pink to represent women and girls, said some transgender activists who boycotted the march.
Sorry, trannies, but until you can have abortions, the feminist movement isn’t that interested in you.
The Boy Scouts of America caved to the pressure of people who hate them and everything they stand for and decided to admit overtly gay people into their ranks. If they thought this would make the people who hate them and everything they stand for leave them alone… they were badly mistaken.
Kristie Maldonado said she was stunned because her son had been a member of Cub Scout Pack 87 in Secaucus for about a month and his transgender status had not been a secret. But some parents complained, an official from the Northern New Jersey Council of Boy Scouts told her — even though her son had been living as a boy for more than a year and was accepted as a boy at school, she said
“Not one of the kids said, ‘You don’t belong here,’” Maldonado said of the Scouts in the pack.
“It made me mad,” Joe, said. “I had a sad face, but I wasn’t crying. I’m way more angry than sad. My identity is a boy. If I was them, I would let every person in the world go in. It’s right to do.”
Gee, I wonder who coached that particular line to come out of the mouth of an eight-year-old.
So, here we have… most likely a publicity-hound white mother jumping on the trendy transgender bandwagon … claiming that her little girl “identifies as a boy and therefore is a boy” (because leftists are insane like that), and normal, mentally healthy people who just want to be left alone to live their lives in peace have to put up with this bullsh. Because “You will be made to care.”
I just see stuff like this and give Thanks to Almighty God that I was born normal and not progressive-left.
As I see it, I really don’t care about anyone else’s business as long as they keep it their business. But when activists try to make their dysfunction something I’m supposed to accommodate or celebrate, that opens up my right to say, “No, dude. You’re effed up, and I don’t want any part of it.”
The students hurled a litany of insults at [Boys Don’t Cry director Kimberly] Peirce, putting up posters that read “fuck your transphobia” and “you don’t fucking get it” among other things. Worse, when Peirce ascended to her podium, students had placed a sign there. It read “fuck this cis white bitch.” That Peirce is actually gender-fluid is quite beside the point.
The students’ unbelievable rudeness crossed the line into a kind of censorship when Peirce tried to speak: the students simply shouted over her. Eventually they let her talk, but some students continued to yell things like “fuck your respectability politics” and “fuck you scared bitch.”
You’re probably  wondering why the social justice left hates Peirce so much. Well, the film was ahead of its time in 1999, but in 2016 it’s problematic. That’s because the main character, Brandon, was played by Hilary Swank, a non-trans person. Students were also incensed at the idea of Peirce having profited from violence against trans people, which isn’t a remotely accurate way to characterize things, but there it is.
You may think that lashing out with obscenities at someone who shares your viewpoint is pretty deranged. Yes, it totally is. Good for you, picking up on that.
“Cis” is a made-up prefix meaning, “normal and mentally healthy,” is considered an epithet on the Social Left.
Nova Classical Academy is a charter school in St. Paul Minnesota that emphasizes classical studies and academic rigor. It was renowned for the quality of its academic programs, and well-regarded by parents and students alike.
Then, two parents moved in; the husband a doctoral a PhD candidate in educational psychology at the University of Minnesota, where his research focuses on “the creation and implementation of gender inclusive policies and practices in K–12 public schools.” And… by amazing coincidence… the daddy who intends to make a career in the expanding field of Transgender Diversity… had a transgender five-year-old sondaughter. (And the mother knew their child was transgender because, despite being biologically male, he enjoys dancing and lip-synching to Beyoncé. Absolute proof-positive of transgenderism among five-year olds).
The school was eager to accommodate them, and they were eager to be accommodated.
In January 2016, Nova’s board of directors approved a comprehensive, interim “gender inclusion” policy. The policy later became permanent. Under the new policy, a student can choose his or her own gender without medical approval. The school must work with transgender students to “create a tailored gender transition plan.” Students are entitled to use the bathrooms, locker rooms, and overnight-trip sleeping facilities of the opposite sex. They also have a right to demand that others address them using their “preferred name” and pronouns. After the policy’s adoption, a committee recommended converting some school bathrooms to “gender neutral” status, while retaining others as “gender binary . . . (traditionally known as Boys/Girls bathroom).”
However, in the opinion of the “transgender” five-year-old parents, they were not quite accommodated enough, and so lawyers and the media got involved. The parents got to bask in the glow of media and social approval, while those who questioned whether changing the curriculum and culture of a school to accommodate a single (dubiously) transgender five-year-old was a good idea were attacked as deplorables.
And at the end of it… another progressive left success story.
Before October 14, 2015, the school was a thriving educational institution where families of widely differing beliefs coexisted happily in a common enterprise. Now bitterness and distrust are rampant. Friendships have been destroyed, and a significant number of families have left the school, which lost ninety-four students from last year to this year.
Like I said, a progressive success story.
So this mom tried to jump on the trendy transgendered band-wagon, claiming her little boy identified as a girl. You get a lot of high-fives and social kudos in left-wing social circles for this.
Then, the court put the little boy back in dad’s custody. You won’t believe what happened next. (See, I can be a master clickbaiter)
A seven-year-old boy has been removed from his mother’s care by the high court, after he was found to be suffering “significant emotional harm” due to his mother raising him as a girl.
The judge in the case slammed social services who had simply accepted that the boy should be treated as a girl.
The woman had told him that the boy “expressed disdain for his penis”, he said, adding: “I consider that [the mother] has caused significant emotional harm to [her son] in her active determination that he should be a girl.”
“I have been told that [the father] and his partner were shocked when they first saw [the boy] by the extent to which he appeared to be a girl, both in appearance and in mannerism,” said the judge. “However, what is striking is how well [the boy] has settled down.
“I have noted from reports that [the boy] has become interested in Power Rangers, SpongeBob, superheroes and is constantly finding new interests … It is striking that most of [the boy’s] interests are male-oriented.
You gotta feel sorry for kids who become just tokens of their parents desire to embrace social justice culture. I keep thinking of that poor little boy raised by the two man-hating lesbian couple* who, surprise surprise, despises himself and also identifies as transgendered because it’s probably the only way to get his parents to accept him. He’s due for quite a shock later on when he finds out how many lesbians hate trannies. Poor kid.

*PS. Strange, when I did the search “lesbian couple son transgender” on Google to find that story, all the links that came up were on the order “How to Raise your transgender child” and “Transgender Teens face bullying at school.” I switched to Bing, did the same search, and it went right to the story.
Remember: According to our left-wing betters who know everything and are therefore entitled to run our lives, Masculinity is Toxic.
As a consolation prize for losing out on the presidential debate, Wright State University (Dayton OH) will be hosting this instead.
According to the left, “transphobic conservatives
who terrify voters with nightmare scenarios involving men in dresses sneaking into women’s bathrooms to sexually assault little girls,” as if these things happen only in the imaginations of “transphobic conservatives.”
Yeah, these kind of things never happen. Except when they do.
Student X would go into the locker room and dance in a “sexually explicit manner—‘twerking,’ ‘grinding’ and dancing like he was on a ‘stripper pole,’” according to the lawsuit. The music he danced to usually featured explicit lyrics.
Student X also commented on other girls’ bodies when in the locker room. He asked one female student if he could trade body parts and what her bra size was.
Another female student used a vacant boy’s locker room in the hopes of having privacy, according the lawsuit. But the transgender student went to that locker room as well and took off his pants in front of her and other girls present.
Sounds to me like “Student X” has a lot of mental health issues in addition to body dysmorphia, but the virtue-signaling leftist women in charge of the school wouldn’t dare tell him not to act out as he did, much less punish him for it.
Another SJW temper-tantrum, and another episode of Transgender Obsessive Disorder; a collective condition in which America’s elite fret constantly over the feelings of a hypersensitive, mentally disordered micro-minority of the country’s population.
The decision to put yet another man in a dress to portray a transgender woman touches a nerve for transgender people, and rightfully so. It’s yet another painful reminder that, in the eyes of so many people, transgender women are really just men.
That message is toxic and dangerous. It’s what prompts lawmakers in states like North Carolina to legislate that a transgender woman must use the men’s restroom, humiliating her and putting her in harm’s way.
Having achieved gay marriage and pretty much all of their other goals, GLAAD is trying to maintain relevance and donors by latching onto the cause of Gender Dysphoria. Beats having to go out and get real jobs, I guess.
Because of the left’s creepy obsession with sexualizing children which is almost as central to modern leftism as calling people who disagree with you bigots. He also has that covered.
This is just … weird. Even if you support the idea of transgendered bathrooms isn’t it odd for some grown man to sing to children about going to the bathroom in this way?
Oh, and apparently Mr. Loops has a name, Jon Lewis. You can find him on Twitter and his whole timeline is about going to the bathroom and calling people bigots if they don’t agree that men should be allowed in the ladies room.
And the thing is, that’s not even the most effed up transgender story I’ve read today.
This is the most effed up transgender story I’ve read today. (If you thought the picture of Anthony Weiner was the most effed up picture of a parent in bed with a child you would see this week, you guessed wrong.)
A small college in Vermont is kicking off the new school year by encouraging students to wear special pins declaring their pronouns, so nobody accidentally uses the wrong one.
“Hello, my pronouns are Xe/Xem/Xyrs,” one button declares. Another expresses a preference for “They/Them/Theirs,” even when referring to a singular person. There’s even a pin declaring “Hello, my pronouns are fluid. Please ask me!” available for those whose gender identity and accompanying pronouns allegedly change over time….
This cultural obsession with the 0.03% of the population with a trendy mental health issue is probably going to continue until some other “oppressed group” becomes trendy. Because it’s very, very important for middle-aged white women to be able to virtue-signal their tolerance and awareness of social trends.
Remember how the left used to claim it would be wrong to outlaw late-term abortions because the relationship between a doctor and a patient was sacrosanct (am I using that word correctly, Throbert?) and the Government had absolutely no business inserting itself there?
The Department of Health and Human Services recently issued rules telling doctors they can’t decline to perform gender-reassignment surgery on kids if it’s recommended by a “mental health professional.” Refusal could be a career-ender.
So, the Government can’t tell a doctor he can’t murder a healthy unborn baby at 32 weeks, but it can absolutely force a doctor to perform a genital mutilation on a confused young teenager.
The study says that adults seem to want to characterize zoo animals according to “binary” gender terminology, forcing the camels and penguins and elephants of this world to conform to either “male” or “female,” even though those particular zoo animals haven’t truly examined whether they would like to identify as their birth gender. Although zoology does allow for checking the actual sex of an animal, adults should, apparently, refrain from referring to zoo animals as a “girl” or a “boy,” unless they’ve asked the said animals.
Another problem: Parents tend to use zoo exhibits to model traditional family roles. The study says “adults mobilize zoo exhibits as props for modeling their own normative gender displays.”
The left, literally, has nothing better to do.
Haines senior Nattaphon Wangyot–who self-identifies as a girl–advanced to the state finals in the 100-meter and 200-meter events. He won fifth place in the 100-meter dash and third place in the 200-meter. In both events, he competed against girls as young as ninth grade.
“It’s the DNA. Genetically a guy has more muscle mass than a girl, and if he’s racing against a girl, he may have an advantage.”
No kidding. Although most of the girls the reporter selected to quote were supportive.
Just curious as to whether a student with mediocre grades could take advantage of Affirmative Action programs at universities by claiming to identify as one of the favored minority groups.
The director of the Georgia ACLU has resigned rather than join that organization’s crusade to put men in little girls’ bathrooms. Maya Dillard Smith said her young daughters felt unsafe when their bathroom was invaded by women with penises.
A transgender activist, a biological male who goes by the name Cheryl Courtney-Evans, responded to the resignation by calling Dillard Smith “lazy,” “ill-educated,” and a “b–ch” who needs to sit down and “STFU.”
What a charming individual.
So the left wants Safe Spaces everywhere, except those spaces where women are at their most vulnerable.
A “transmasculine” teacher at an Oregon elementary school has been awarded $60,000 by her school district as compensation for harassment she claims to have suffered on the job, including being referred to by the wrong pronoun.
According to The Oregonian, Leo Soell was born a woman, but now prefers to identify as “transmasculine” and “genderqueer,” meaning she does not consider herself to be male or female.
Soell had to withstand the horrible trauma and abuse of co-workers who used the pronouns “she” and “her.”
The suffering this individual had to endure should put all those crybaby war veterans in their place.
In other news of societal decline, the City of New York … having solved every other urban problem… released a list of the 31 genders that are lawfully recognized in the city, including “Third Sex,” “Hijra,” and “Drag Queen.” Businesses are required by law to recognize, accommodate, and emotionally support all 31.
It’s sort of a “Baskin-Robbins” of dysphoria.
I thought “Drag Queen” was a cabaret act, not a gender. But what do I know?
I’m not sure what “Third Sex” is, but I’m pretty sure it includes Chris Hayes.
I think “Godzilla Versus Hijra” was one of the best Japanese monster movies ever.
Clarence Henderson, the chairman of the North Carolina Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission (i.e. a real Civil Rights leader) thinks the Obama Regime’s rhetoric about Transgender Bathroom Rights is crap.
Recently, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch compared HB2 to Jim Crow. Jim Crow laws were put into place to keep an entire race positioned as second-class citizens. HB2 simply says that men and women should use the restroom of their biological sex in government buildings and schools. This comparison is highly offensive and utterly disrespectful to those families and individuals who have shed blood and lost lives to advance the cause of civil rights. I take this as a personal slap in the face because I was an active participant in the civil rights movement.
During the Jim Crow Era, we stared down the nozzle of firehoses, felt the piercing bite of police dogs, dangled from trees after being strung up by an angry mob, all because of the color of our skin. Our businesses were burned, churches bombed, communities destroyed, all because of the color of our skin. We had to drink at separate water fountains, shop at different stores and even had to sit at the back of the bus, all because of the color of our skin. All this and more took place after enduring 400 years of arguably the most heinous crime in history – slavery.
I kind of sense that this whole left-wing obsession with “Transgender Rights” is because after electing a black(ish) president and forcing gay marriage by judicial fiat, there pretty much aren’t any real civil rights struggles left. But the Civil Rights movement is the one thing the left thinks it got right, and all the old leftists want to relive that “struggle” (even if they only watched it on TV from the safety of an all-white neighborhood) and all the young leftists want to feel like they’re doing something important to “change the world.” So, of course, the slightly hurt feelings of gender appropriators have to be elevated to the same plain of people who were denied rights under the color of (Democrat-imposed) laws and were hit with firehouses and bombs. FWIW: I was in North Carolina this week for business. Both of the in-state airports I passed through had unisex bathrooms. The company that hosted us had nothing but single-occupant unisex bathrooms. The Left is making a big stink about nothin’.
On a related note, the Charlotte (NC) Observer — in defense of Transgender Bathrooms — says the sight of male genitalia isn’t a big deal and women just need to get over it. [Tell that to college feminists. Or, try to.]
Also, apparently boys have periods now, because leftists are insane.
She says: “In a lot of ways, I don’t like telling a guy. Once I tell him all respect goes out of the window.
“Straight guys just can’t get over you having the male parts.
Gee, no kidding.
Why does this person, and this news story, treat the teenage boys who are turned off by a chick with a mule as if *they* are the ones with a problem?
Just kidding, we know why.
The reality is that people who are into the transgendered (or as I am going to start calling them, ‘Gender Appropriators’) as romantic partners are a very small subset of the dating pool. It’s natural and normal for people to want to be with other people whose sexual identity is consistent with their biological make-up. Perhaps it is too much to expect people who cannot accept their own biology to accept the reality of that situation either.
And, yeah, one can feel for people who are in this situation, but that doesn’t change the reality of it. Maybe the left will pass a law outlawing dating discrimination against transgender individuals. Punishing people into social compliance seems to be a very big thing on the left these days.
