Lesbians Removed From Australian Pride For “transphobia”

Arielle Scarcella

A lesbian event has been removed from Sydney, Australia’s LGBT Pride after a vocal minority protested the participation of a popular lesbian YouTuber with critical views towards transgender self-ID.

Arielle Scarcella runs an LGBT-centred YouTube channel with over 630,000 subscribers.

She has also spoken out against self-ID laws which have enabled biological males to be transferred to women’s prisons after the commission of serious offences, such as sexual assaults. In 2018, Scarcella collaborated on a video with Blaire White discussing how lesbian sexual preferences that do not include an attraction to biological males who transition to female were not “transphobic.”

Huntin’ Homos in Tanzania

The oldest remains of the genus Homo were found in Tanzania near Lake Olduvai, so it’s a bit queer that Tanzania is currently so homo-hostile.

Mt Kiiimanjaro

Late in January, the US State Department banned Paul Makonda, Regional Commissioner of Tanzania’s capital city of Dar es Salaam, from visiting the USA. They also forbade his immediate family members from visiting. In justifying the ban, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo cited “gross violations” of human rights, specifically Makonda’s aggressively anti-gay policies.

If you asked Makonda, he’d likely say that the only “gross violations” were the violations of nature that occur when men anally penetrate other men.

In October 2018, Makonda held a press conference urging Tanzanians to send him the names of any men suspected of being gay, promising to launch a “hunt” for them beginning the following week. In November 2018, he announced the establishment of a task force that would hunt down gay men, “test” them for homosexuality, and offer them a choice of conversion therapy or imprisonment.

The degree to which Makonda put his threat into action is unclear, but Tanzanian police have gone on raids to arrest people suspected of “promoting homosexuality” since at least 2016. This involves rounding up and busting people who may be doing nothing more than attending public meetings about how to stop the spread of HIV, which currently infects one out of every 20 Tanzanians.

Not only do they arrest them, though—they also enlist healthcare professionals to give them anal exams “for evidence of gay sex.

Bruce Jenner Reveals He’s Had Gender Reassignment Surgery in New Memoir

“I was so tired of tucking the damn thing in all the time … “

https://whiskeytangotexas.files.wordpress.com/2017/04/catilyn_jenner.jpg?w=625

You can cut off whatever body part you want and change your pronouns. Doesn’t change your DNA.

From Yahoo: Much of Caitlyn Jenners transition has been up for public consumption, but the Olympian managed the seemingly impossible: She underwent gender reassignment surgery in January of this year, and nobody suspected a thing until she revealed it to the world herself.

Jenner, 67, shares and bares all in her upcoming memoir, The Secrets of My Life, due out April 25 — and it’s there that she talks about the experience for what, she writes, will be the first and last time.

“I just want to have all the right parts. I am also tired of tucking the damn thing in all the time,” she explains, adding that she was excited to realize she’d be living authentically for the first time in her life. “The surgery was a success, and I feel not only wonderful, but liberated.”

She continues, “I am going to have an enthusiasm for life that I have not had in 39 years since the Olympics, almost two thirds of my life.”

In the book excerpt obtained by RadarOnline.comJenner reveals she finally made the full transition after being annoyed by fans asking intrusive questions about her genitals. But that doesn’t mean fans have the right to continue to pester her about it. As she says in the book, “You want to know, so now you know. Which is why this is the first time, and the last time, I will ever speak of it.”

Jenner’s upcoming tome netted a huge advance — $4 million, to be exact — and she worked on it with Friday Night Lights author Buzz Bissinger, who also wrote the Vanity Fair profile that introduced Caitlyn to the world. Jenner’s life has certainly exploded since she revealed her transition to Diane Sawyer on 20/20 just two years ago this month.

“For all intents and purposes, I am a woman,” she told Sawyer. “My brain is much more female than it is male. That’s what my soul is. Bruce lives a lie. She is not a lie. I can’t do it anymore.”

Which is why gender reassignment was a natural next step. As Jenner continued to embrace her new form, she found she had no use for anything that was associated with her old self. As she writes about the choice to undergo surgery, “So why even consider it? Because it’s just a penis. It has no special gifts or use for me other than what I have said before, the ability to take a whiz in the woods.”

Of course, the more public aspect of Jenner’s transition from Bruce to Caitlyn continued long after her interview with Sawyer, including her groundbreaking Vanity Fair cover story and photo shoot in June 2015, which Jenner likened to being better than winning a gold medal. She became active on Twitter soon afterward, and now boasts nearly 4 million followers. That July marked the debut of her E! reality show, I Am Cait, which was canceled after two seasons. Jenner officially changed her name in September 2015.

Previously, Jenner was reluctant to discuss gender reassignment — even going so far as to shoot down any comments on it in her Sports Illustrated appearance last June. “It’s nobody’s business whether I want to do that to my body,” she told SI. But she did admit that “Little Caitlyn” had been inside her since her youth, and it took a long time for her to come to terms with it.

“Sometimes she raised her cute little head more than others. I was female inside, but I wasn’t an effeminate male. So I could hide easily in the male world,” Jenner said of that period of her life. “My life was distraction after distraction after distraction. Being a macho male was a way for me to try to convince myself that the woman living inside of me really isn’t living inside me.

“It disgusted me,” Jenner said of her male body. “I was big and thick and masculine. The rest of the world thought it was this Greek god kind of body. I hated it. But it’s what I was given, so I just tried to do the best I could with it.

But now that she’s undergone gender reassignment surgery, Jenner can truly live freely as her authentic self. Congratulations, Caitlyn! Now let’s respect her wishes and never speak of this again.

Florida Bishop Blames Orlando Jihadist Massacre on Catholic ‘Contempt’ for Homosexuality

A fish always rots from the head down.

https://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/church.jpg

Along comes Florida Bishop Robert Lynch to absolve Islamic Jihadist ideology that threatens our public safety, and endeavors to force terror and subjugation among us.

Lynch stated in a blog post “that Catholicism “targets” and “often breeds contempt for gays, lesbians and transgender people.” The seed of contempt, he said, turns into hatred, “which can ultimately lead to violence.” Unless this attitude changes, he states, “we can expect more Orlandos.””

Islamic Jihadist terror was responsible for the deadliest mass shooting on American soil at the Pulse Nightclub when Omar Mateen pledged his allegiance to ISIS and gunned down his victims, not Catholicism.

Jihad Watch has been reporting on radicalized mosques and Islamic Societies nearby, and exposing the disdain and calls for violence against homosexuals which is rooted in traditional Islamic teachings about homosexuality.  This is why the killings of homosexuals is sanctioned in Islamic states.

https://i2.wp.com/static.infowars.com/politicalsidebarimage/hater.jpg

Mateen clearly had murderous tendencies as it is now reported that he threatened to bring a gun into his elementary school and kill everyone when he was only 10 years old. Omar also cheered as terrorists flew jumbo jets into the Twin Towers on 9-11, according to former classmates.  His proclivity for violence was nurtured by Islamic jihadist doctrine and counsel and ultimately found expression at the Pulse nightclub through his killing spree. Yet Bishop Lynch Robert Lynch blames the Catholic Church in its disapproval of homosexual acts for the brutal slaughter.

Faith and free speech is a human right to practice in our societies. The Catholic Church not inciting violence and hatred toward gays from the pulpits today.   Lynch is demonizing, accusing and attempting to marginalize those in the church that believe homosexuality is wrong but who have no intention or desire to bring any harm to gays; and as an opportunist, he chose the worst tragedy to drive his agenda.

To think that a man of the cloth will exonerate the evil of Islamic jihadist ideology and heap its guilt on the back of his own Church is ghastly at best.

Since Bishop Lynch parades as a Christian, he just may be interested in what Proverbs 17: 17 states (or maybe not):  “He that justifies the wicked, and he that condemns the just, even they both are an abomination to the LORD.”  Back to the secular realms now, Lynch’s view is an abomination to his faith, an abomination to society and an abomination to the truth. He has earned a place on the elite list of useful idiots.

 

“Florida Bishop Blames Orlando Massacre on Catholic ‘Contempt’ for Homosexuality,” Breitbart, by Thomas D. Williams, June 14 2016:

The Catholic Bishop of St. Petersburg, Fla, has blamed Catholic disapproval of homosexual acts for the brutal slaughter of 49 people in the Pulse nightclub on Sunday.

In a blogpost Monday, Bishop Robert Lynch said that Catholicism “targets” and “often breeds contempt for gays, lesbians and transgender people.” The seed of contempt, he said, turns into hatred, “which can ultimately lead to violence.” Unless this attitude changes, he states, “we can expect more Orlandos.”

In his post, the bishop made no attempt to explain how a 29-year-old Muslim who never stepped foot in a Catholic Church would have been motivated to carry out his deed by a supposed Catholic “contempt” for homosexuality.

Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, the Catholic Church teaches that homosexual acts are “intrinsically disordered” but that homosexual persons “must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity” and that every “sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided.”

It is “religion,” Lynch wrote, “including our own, which targets, mostly verbally, and also often breeds contempt for gays, lesbians and transgender people. Attacks today on LGBT men and women often plant the seed of contempt, then hatred, which can ultimately lead to violence.”

Regarding the shooter’s affiliation with Islam, the bishop said that Muslims wishing to enter the country should not be treated differently than people of any other faith, which would be “un-American,” adding that there are “as many good, peace loving and God fearing Muslims to be found as Catholics or Methodists or Mormons or Seventh Day Adventists.”….

Girl Scouts Welcome Cross-Dressing Boys into their Ranks

The Girl Scouts of America (GSA) is the latest organization to cave to pressure from the LGBTIQA lobby, adapting its policies to extend membership to boys who identify as girls.

Penny Nance from Concerned Women for America called the decision “just one more slap in the face to Christian parents.”

On the GSA website, the association states: “If the child is recognized by the family and school/community as a girl and lives culturally as a girl, then Girl Scouts is an organization that can serve her in a setting that is both emotionally and physically safe.”

Girls participating in the scouts will now be obliged to recognize transgenderism as a normal lifestyle, critics say.

The conservative American Family Association expressed its outrage at the policy change, accusing scout leaders of “losing their moral compass.” This is the case of adults being “willing to experiment on our kids—both the boys who are confused and the girls who will wonder why a boy in a dress is in the bathroom with them.”

“Boys in skirts, boys in make-up and boys in tents will become a part of the program. This change will put young innocent girls at risk,” the group said.

This isn’t the first time that the issue of transgender boys wanting to join the Girl Scouts has come up, though such cases are fairly uncommon. In early 2012, seven-year old Bobby Montoya, who was living as a girl, was allowed to join his local Girl Scout troop in Colorado.

The GSA’s tendency toward greater permissiveness prompted the creation of a new organization in 1995, called the American Heritage Girls, “a Christ-centered alternative to Girl Scouts” that openly embraces a “Judeo-Christian focus” and a mission to build women of integrity through “service to God, family, community and country.”

Since 2003, GSA’s enrollment has dropped by over one million girls, almost 27% of its membership, a decline that critics attribute to its “lurch to the left.”

Last year, pro-lifers launched a national cookie boycott after the Girl Scouts endorsed Wendy Davis, a pro-abortion candidate for governor of Texas.

Seattle Allows Man to Lounge Naked in Front of Little Girls, Charlotte Next?

Earlier in February, conservative concerns about new laws supposedly written to “protect” homosexuals and transgenders are proving to be accurate.

While liberals argued that the law was simply designed to protect LGBT citizens from discrimination, conservatives replied that the laws would instead discriminate against non-LGBT citizens. Now that conflict is playing out just as conservatives had warned.

At the Evans pool in Seattle, Washington, a man walked into the changing room of a local swimming pool and stripped naked in front of a girls’ swim team. When confronted about the disgusting display, the man simply replied that the city’s transgender policies gave him the freedom to do as he pleased.

“Seeing this individual in the locker room, parents of swim team members (girls) and women who had paid for lap swim became alarmed and alerted our front desk staff,” said Seattle Parks spokesman David Takami in a statement. “In response, an Evans pool staff member entered the women’s locker room and asked the man to leave.” They offered both the man and the girls the opportunity to use a family changing room.

The man left, only to return to the dressing room again a short while later during a youth swim time. The patrons were understandably disturbed and were even described by the pool staff as being “alarmed.” Seattle Parks’ David Takami commented that none of those concerns really mattered, “We have guidelines that allow transgender individuals to use restrooms and locker rooms consistent with their gender identity. We want everyone to feel comfortable in our facilities.” However, this last statement is simply a lie. This policy actually makes more people uncomfortable than who were uncomfortable before the policy was put in place.

Apparently, the liberals in Charlotte, North Carolina don’t care about the concerns of the majority of the population because the city council just approved a new law that is strikingly similar to Seattle’s. After raucous debate and majority disapproval, the Charlotte City Council approved a new law that will allow men to use bathroom and changing facilities also used by girls.

The changes mean businesses in Charlotte can’t discriminate against gay, lesbian or transgender customers, in addition to long-standing protections based on race, age, religion and gender. The ordinance applies to places of public accommodation, such as bars, restaurants and stores. It also applies to taxis.

The most controversial part of the ordinance would allow transgender residents to use either a men’s or women’s bathroom, depending on the gender with which they identify.

The bathroom provision sparked the most opposition, with opponents mostly worried about the safety of women and girls in a public bathroom with people who were born male. Supporters said those fears were overblown, and that transgender people are at risk of violence in the bathroom.

It is simply foolish to argue that the law will protect LGBT citizens because any business in a major metropolitan area that did this would assuredly lose their business. No customer wants to be associated with such discrimination. In fact, the only people who need to worry about discrimination are the citizens forced to worry about men bathing with their daughters at the local gym or pool.

Thankfully, the North Carolina state legislature seems a bit more connected to reality than Charlotte’s lawmakers are. Governor Pat McCrory (R-NC) and the state’s General Assembly will likely be moving to strike down the ordinance and allow the voters to decide the issue by referendum.

The Reverend Franklin Graham sounded a heartbroken note when mentioning the city’s awful decision.

I appreciate council members Ed Driggs, Claire Fallon, Greg Phipps, and Kenny Smith for having the courage to do the right thing and vote NO.

I hope the people of Charlotte will stop the liberal insanity and emphatically vote down this new law.

Jump this! Olympics To Let Men Compete As Women

https://i1.wp.com/www.wnd.com/files/2015/06/bruce-jenner-vanity-fair-top-600.jpg

Early in Barack Obama’s Oval Office tenure, WND columnist Les Kinsolving wrote of a decision by the Maine Human Rights Commission to back away from a requirement that schools allow men who identify as women to join women’s teams.

A commissioner who supported shelving the plan called it a “victory for common sense and sound reasoning on a very controversial issue.”

“How long will most female athletic teams last if they’re all open to males?” Kinsolving asked at the time.

The world is about to find out, with the International Olympic Committee announcing it will allow transgenders in virtually all athletic competitions without undergoing reassignment surgery. That means men competing against women in various sporting events.

“They ought to make good boxers and power lifters,” commented Jim Hoft at The Gateway Pundit.

WND Vice President David Kupelian, author of “The Snapping of the American Mind,” said the issue ultimately is fairness.

“A few years ago, Americans were shocked when the first transgender bathroom measures were being discussed, and the idea that men could use the ladies’ room was shocking,” he said. “Once the shock subsided and the leftist lawyers and legislators forced implementation, they aimed for a higher bar – forcing girls to accept boys in their locker rooms and showers, as long as the boys claimed they identified as female,” he said.

“But with the International Olympic Committee’s ruling that men claiming to be women can compete against woman athletes, a new world record in insanity and unfairness has been established,” he said.

Kupelian’s new book shows how the long-coalescing forces of the political left, turbocharged by the Obama presidency, are promoting how to “transition” children “to the opposite sex.”

“The Olympics is already hurting, with fewer and fewer cities being willing to take on the expensive job of hosting the event,” he observed. “Once the worldwide viewers – most of whom have not been brainwashed and intimidated into adopting the increasingly bizarre LGBT agenda – realize that men can now compete against women in the Olympics, the inherent unfairness of this and the total inversion of traditional sportsmanship will cause the Olympic flame to dwindle still further.

Kupelian noted the “LGBT agenda is supposedly all about fairness.”

“But the naked unfairness of this ruling by the IOC, which had it been in place four decades ago would have allowed Bruce Jenner to compete against women athletes, will widely be seen as a bridge too far,” he said.

The move was recommended by the IOC Consensus Meeting on Sex Reassignment and Hyperandrogenism, which included Angelica Hirschberg of the Karolinska Institutet, Gerare Conway of the University College London, Maria Jose Martinez Patino of the University of Vigo and dozens of other experts.

Their recommendations are that “those who transition from female to male are eligible to compete in the male category without restriction.”

An athlete who transitions “from male to female” must declare “her gender identity” and must “demonstrate that her testosterone level in serum” has been below a specified level for at least 12 months.

Further, it must remain at that low level “throughout the period of desired eligibility” and be tested by “monitoring.”

In his 2010 column, Kinsolving asked: “If all of Maine’s school and college locker rooms and lavatories are to become co-ed, when will all of Maine’s college dormitories be forced to end gender segregation in favor of all males rooming with females?”

Reacting to the IOC’s decision, a Christian sports ministry in Madison, Wisconsin, noted to Charisma News that athletes previously were required to have gender-reassignment surgery to compete as the opposite sex.

“We started in 2003 standing against transgenders in the Olympics,” 4 WINDS President Steve McConkey said. “Not only is the LGBT movement promoting immoral behavior in sports, but science will show that the new IOC ruling is not scientifically sound. The IOC has opened the door for a threat to the Olympics worse than performance-enhancing drugs.”

The transgender movement has grown exponentially during the Obama administration.

For example, it made headlines in 2007 when the University of Southern Maine announced a “gender neutral” restroom facility.

“The USM library bathrooms are designed to accommodate several people simultaneously, and they have no exterior door locks,” said Mike Hein of the Christian Civic League of Maine. “Men and women were seen entering and leaving the bathrooms freely, often together as groups, throughout the transgender event.”

Within a couple of years, a Senate committee was beginning to give “serious consideration” to a plan that would provide special protections for transgender people in the workplace.

Over the last two years, the movement has surged. WND reported on a radical “co-ed bathroom law” adopted in California that allows public school students to identify themselves as boys or girls, regardless of their sex. Then the Department of Defense, under Obama’s direction, issued a new rule weakening the prohibition against transgender personnel in the ranks. It said being transgender no longer was a criterion for removal.

A short time later, Mitchell Primary School children in Kittery, Maine, were being taught from a book called “I Am Jazz,” a boy who claims to have known at the age of 2 “she had a girl’s brain in a boy’s body.”

A character in the popular television series “Glee” came out as transgender, and the industry announced more transgender shows.

Bruce Jenner’s announcement that he had become “Caitlyn” followed, and Obama hired his first openly transgender official.

Perhaps a harbinger of Olympic events to come, a transgender mixed martial arts fighter, Fallon Fox, defeated opponent Tamikka Brents by dishing out a damaged orbital bone and a concussion.

Brents concluded, “I’ve never felt so overpowered ever in my life.”

Then the Girl Scouts announced a plan to accommodate transgenders, and such individuals were being accepted by an all-female college.

Most recently, the Obama administration threatened an Illinois school district with the loss of Title IX funding if officials refused to let a boy who dresses as a girl use the locker room for girls to change and shower.

A play featured Jesus as a transgender women, and a bar in Portland, Oregon, was ordered by the state court of appeals to pay $400,000 in damages to transgender customers the owner asked to stay away.

The Guardian reported IOC Medical Director Richard Budgett said, “This should give [sports groups] the confidence and stimulus to put these rules in place.”

The British paper said former IOC medical commission chairman Arne Ljungqvist, who helped draft the new guidelines, said the consensus was driven by social and political changes.

“‘It has become much more of a social issue than in the past,’ he told the Associated Press. ‘We had to review and look into this from a new angle. We needed to adapt to the modern legislation around the world. We felt we cannot impose a surgery if that is no longer a legal requirement.’”

Marissa Payne at the Washington Post cited some current “professional transgender athletes,” including cyclists Natalie van Gogh of the Netherlands and Michelle Dumaresq of Canada, and Team USA duathlete Chris Mosier, who identifies as male. Van Gogh and Dumaresq have both undergone gender reassignment surgery while Mosier has not.

It Is Now A Crime To ‘Mis-gender’ A Transsexual Or Transgender Person

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

nyc-says-250000-fine-for-misgendering-transsexual-transgender-people-lgbt-nteb

 

Did you call a transgender or transsexual person “he” or “she” when they preferred to be called “zhe?” According to a newly updated anti-discrimination law in New York City, you could be fined an eye-watering $250,000

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

EDITOR’S NOTE: So here’s the really funny part in all this. You believed them when they told you it was all about “tolerance” and “acceptance”, when in reality it was all about control. The LGBT Mafia now controls the narrative, and any objections to the contrary is now considered hate speech. And it will be punished. Harshly. It is starting with massive fines, but will end with imprisonment and even with the execution of the dissenters. These are the new Nazis, and your reeducation camp is waiting to receive you. The dictator may be wearing pink, but that will not soften the blow. 

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

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

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

The NYCHRL requires employers and covered entities to use an individual’s preferred name, pronoun and title (e.g., Ms./Mrs.) regardless of the individual’s sex assigned at birth, anatomy, gender, medical history, appearance, or the sex indicated on the individual’s identification. Most individuals and many transgender people use female or male pronouns and titles.

Some transgender and gender non-conforming people prefer to use pronouns other than he/him/his or she/her/hers, such as they/them/theirs or ze/hir

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

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

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

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