TRENDING: Universities work to purge male students of their ‘toxic’ masculinity – The College Fix

TRUTH BOMBS: This is ridiculous!! Will you college professors please teach critical thinking instead of this garbage. This is egalitarianism and a logical bias people!!!! Please learn how to think before making college policy and lifestyle changes. Egalitarianism is an unwarranted bias. There is no truth without identity and no identity without distinction. Men are not women and women are not men. Quit trying to make men into women.

ARTICLE: Universities across the nation are taking steps to actively purge male students of what’s been labeled “toxic masculinity.”

Examples abound of campuses hosting training sessions, group meetings, lectures and other programs to effectively cleanse what many campus leaders and left-leaning scholars contend is an unhealthy masculinity in young men today.

On campus, toxic masculinity is often blamed for sexual violence, body shaming, a “hyper-masculinized sporting culture,” acts of domestic terrorism and much more.

For example, a class at Dartmouth College this semester, “The Orlando Syllabus,” identifies so-called toxic masculinity as playing a role in the mass murder spree at a Florida club during the summer. This despite the fact that the gunman, Omar Mateen, told police on the phone as he committed the massacre he did it on behalf of ISIS.

Other instances of combating toxic masculinity on campus can be found at both the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and Duke University, which launched programs specifically designed for male students to delve into “violent masculinity” and “healthier masculinity” and discuss issues like gender fluidity.

“How has the concept of masculinity contributed to the perpetration of violence in our society?” asks the UNC Men’s Project website.

Duke University started a similar program this semester for male students to reflect on topics such as patriarchy, male privilege, rape culture, pornography, machismo and “the language of dominance,” Fox News reported.

At a mandatory freshmen orientation training at Gettysburg College in August, male students had to watch a documentary which stated in part that the “three most destructive words” a boy can hear growing up is “be a man.” The freshmen also went through breakout sessions in which they were told mass shooting sprees are rooted in toxic masculinity.

The “Thrive” club, part of the Claremont colleges consortium which meets as a “safe space” to talk about mental health, advertises that “masculinity can be extremely toxic to our mental health, both to the people who are pressured to preform it and the people who are inevitably influenced by it.”

The group refuses to disclose the contents of its discussions due to “confidentiality concerns,” but students who attended one of the sessions reported that there was “a common consensus that masculinity is harmful both to those who express it and those affected by it,” the Claremont Independent reported.

Various promotional videos promoting health masculinity advocate challenging “the traditional norms of what we envision masculinity to be” by recognizing “male privilege.” Goals touted through the education include undoing a legacy of “harm, oppression and dominance.”

This trend did not emerge over night. Last year, Vanderbilt University hosted “Healthy Masculinities Week,” led in part by Jackson Katz, the first man to minor in women studies at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

Katz criticized actors such as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone for their muscular physiques, which have gotten “larger” over the years. According to the presentation, “hyper-masculinized sporting culture” has also advanced unhealthy masculinity.

Forced Transgender Boy Quickly Returns To Normal After Removal From Mother’s Care

TRUTH BOMBS: YEAHH!!!!! Maybe one more life saved from the deluded liberal minds.

ARTICLE: 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 High Court judge hearing the case, Mr Justice Hayden, told the court that he believed the mother had been “absolutely convinced” that the boy “perceived himself as a girl” and was therefore determined to treat him as a girl, according to reports.

However, the boy, who cannot be named and is now living with his father, has naturally reverted to having masculine interests since leaving the care of his mother, the court heard.

Family court proceedings began about three years ago after the father raised a complaint that he was not allowed access to his son. A lower-ranking judge authorised a “wide ranging” inquiry forcing local authority social services staff to begin investigations.

Justice Hayden said “flares of concern” for the boy’s wellbeing had been raised by a “whole raft of multi-disciplinary agencies”, and that he couldn’t understand why social services had “disregarded so summarily” those concerns.

He said social services staff had “moved into wholesale acceptance that [the boy] should be regarded as a girl”. He called on council to undertake a review of the “social work response” to the case; a council spokesperson said a review was already underway.

The judge considered evidence from boy’s parents, local authority social workers and a psychologist to make his ruling.

In his ruling, Justice Hayden said that the boy’s mother “told me that [he] was ‘living in stealth’ by which was meant, she explained, that he was living life entirely as a girl.

“He dressed, at all times, like a girl and, it transpired, had been registered at a new general practitioner’s as a girl.

“I was also left in no doubt that [the mother] was absolutely convinced that [the boy] perceived himself as a girl.”

Justice Hayden added that his “overwhelming impression” was that the mother “believes herself to be to fighting for [her son’s] right to express himself 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.”

Justice Hayden commented upon the fact that the boy had settled in well with his father and his father’s partner, actively choosing, with no pressure from either adult, to pursue interests typically seen as masculine.

“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.

He concluded: “I am entirely satisfied, both on the basis of the reports and [the father’s] evidence at this hearing, that he has brought no pressure on [the boy] to pursue masculine interests. [The boy’s] interests and energy are entirely self-motivated.”

Christian Employee Could be Fired after Refusing to Watch LGBTQ Video – Christian News Headlines

A Christian employee who refused to watch a video on LGBTQ “diversity and inclusivity” is in danger of losing his job.

According to LifeSiteNews.com, David Hall has worked in information technology for the Social Security Administration for 14 years.

Recently, all employees were told they had to watch a diversity training video. Hall refused, citing his religious beliefs.

Although Hall said he has gay and lesbian friends and holds no animosity toward homosexuals, he still believes homosexuality is a sin. “I’m not going to certify sin,” he said.

Because of the stand he took, Hall was reprimanded and was suspended without pay. He realizes that he may lose his job over his stance.

Hall explained that the training was essentially LGBTQ propaganda. “This is something I want to fight and expose, to give other Christians the courage of their convictions,” he said, adding that several employees shared his convictions but were too “scared” to make a stand.

Americans for Truth president Peter LaBarbera praised Hall for standing up for his convictions:

“He is absolutely correct: LGBT ‘diversity’ sessions and films are NOT truly ‘diverse’ because they disrespect or ignore faith-based and moral opposition to homosexualism and transsexualism,” said LaBarbera.

“By calling out this forced groupthink, David Hall is helping to educate others — and ultimately standing up for our First Amendment freedoms,” LaBarbera continued.  “People like him willing to suffer for liberty’s sake keep us all free.”

Chelsea Manning to receive gender transition surgery: lawyers

TRUTH BOMBS: Truly sickening. Tax payer money will now fund the the transgender surgery for a PRISONER and we can’t even get proper VA Healthcare!! Come Lord Jesus, Come Please!

ARTICLE: WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. soldier Chelsea Manning, serving a 35-year prison term for passing classified files to WikiLeaks, ended her hunger strike on Tuesday after the Army said she would be allowed to receive gender transition surgery, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said.

The 28-year-old Army private, who was born male but revealed after being convicted of espionage that she identifies as a woman, announced the hunger strike on Friday.

Manning’s treatment will begin with the surgery that was recommended by her psychologist in April, the ACLU, which represented Manning, said in a statement. Manning is held in Kansas.

No transgender inmate has ever before received gender affirming surgical treatment in prison, the ACLU said.

“I am unendingly relieved that the military is finally doing the right thing. I applaud them for that. This is all that I wanted — for them to let me be me,” Manning said in a statement, though she went on to criticize the government for taking “so long.”

A spokesman for the defense department said it would not comment on the matter in order to protect patient confidentiality.

Manning in July tried to commit suicide over what her representatives said was the government’s denial of appropriate treatment for her gender dysphoria, a condition in which a person feels their physical gender is the opposite of the one he or she identifies with.

The Army announced later that month that it would investigate Manning for misconduct in connection with the attempt to take her own life, a probe that could lead to indefinite solitary confinement, reclassification into maximum security or additional prison time.

According to Manning’s representatives, doctors have recommended that as part of her treatment for gender dysphoria the soldier, who began hormone therapy in 2015, be allowed to follow “female hair grooming standards.”

ACLU staff attorney Chase Strangio said in Tuesday’s statement that the government plans to still enforce the male hair standards.

Manning, a former intelligence analyst in Iraq, was sentenced in 2013 to 35 years in prison after a military court conviction of providing more than 700,000 documents, videos, diplomatic cables and battlefield accounts to the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks. The case ranked as the biggest breach of classified materials in U.S. history.

Among the files Manning leaked in 2010 was a gunsight video of a U.S. Apache helicopter firing on suspected Iraqi insurgents in 2007, an attack that killed a dozen people, including two Reuters news staff.

Child, 4, world’s youngest-ever ‘sex change’ patient

TRUTH BOMBS: Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed for less. How much longer do you think we have?

ARTICLE: Australian officials have confirmed that a 4-year-old child is going through a sex-change procedure despite the warning last month by the American College of Pediatrics that even treatments, much less surgical intervention, can cause sterility and are based on “unscientific gender ideology” that violate “the long-standing ethical principle of ‘First do no harm.’”

The Australian case was profiled by Yahoo7 News, which said the child is the “youngest on Australian record to change their gender.”

But the report said the New South Wales provincial government admitted hundreds of other children are being “referred to the state’s hospitals for gender dysphoria.”

Deputy Secretary of School Operations Gregory Prior said there were a number of students in his area with similar “circumstances.”

“Without breaching privacy,” he told the news organization, “we have a 4-year-old who is transitioning to kindergarten next year who has identified as transgender.”

He said the “Safe Schools” program is being used to “support that family, student and school.”

“Outlasting the Gay Revolution” spells out eight principles to help Americans with conservative moral values counter attacks on our freedoms of religion, speech and conscience by homosexual activists

But no other details were revealed about the case, including the child’s birth gender, the report said.

In the United Kingdom, the London Daily Mail reported last December, up to 80 children as young as 4 years old are now trying to change their gender.

The statistic came from the activist group called Mermaids, which “supports families with transgender children.”

The organization claimed 1 percent of the population is transgender there.

In the United States, The New York Times said a report by the Williams Institute, which works on “law and policy issues” regarding sexual orientation and gender identity, claimed there are about 1.4 million adults who identify as transgender, about 0.6 percent of the adult population.

U.S. figures for children do not exist

The report noted that a comparable estimate for transgender youth in the United States “does not yet exist.”

But many of those who treat gender dysphoria have expressed reluctance to treat people younger than 16 or 18, especially with those “nonreversible” surgical procedures.

Most treatments come in the form of chemicals that block gender development while a person sorts out their gender identity.

A new study last month by two of the top experts in the field at Johns Hopkins University concluded there is little scientific evidence for the “born that way” theory.”

The authors, Lawrence S. Mayer and Paul McHugh, expressed alarm at the developing trend in the United States of parents declaring their child to be transgendered and subjecting the child to hormone treatments, behavioral adjustments and surgery.

Mayer is a scholar-in-residence in the Department of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University and a professor of statistics and biostatistics at Arizona State University.

McHugh is a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and was for 25 years the psychiatrist in chief at the Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Children who express any identification of the opposite gender almost always leave those expressions behind as they grow, the scholars argue.

“Despite the scientific uncertainty, drastic interventions are prescribed and delivered to patients identifying, or identified, as transgender. This is especially troubling when the patients receiving these interventions are children,” the authors wrote in the study, “Sexuality and Gender: Findings from the Biological, Psychological, and Social Sciences,” published in The New Atlantis.

“We read popular reports about plans for medical and surgical interventions for many prepubescent children, some as young as six, and other therapeutic approaches undertaken for children as young as two.

‘No one can determine gender identity of 2-year-old

“We suggest that no one can determine the gender identity of a 2-year-old. We have reservations about how well scientists understand what it even means for a child to have developed sense of his or her gender, but notwithstanding that issue, we are deeply alarmed that these therapies, treatments, and surgeries seem disproportionate to the severity of the distress being experienced by these young people, and are at any rate premature since the majority of children who identify as the gender opposite their biological sex will not continue to do so as adults,” the study said.

“Outlasting the Gay Revolution” spells out eight principles to help Americans with conservative moral values counter attacks on our freedoms of religion, speech and conscience by homosexual activists

“Moreover, there is a lack of reliable studies on the long-term effects of these interventions. We strongly urge caution in this regard.”

North Carolina transgender students win toilet access ruling – BBC News

TRUTH BOMBS: I thought the purpose of schools was to teach children what right and wrong is not embrace fantasy.

ARTICLE: The University of North Carolina must allow transgender students and staff to use the toilets that match their gender identity, a US judge has ruled.

A state law passed in March requires transgender people to use toilets that correspond to the sex on their birth certificates.

The ruling led to boycotts of the state by some sports teams, businesses, and entertainers.

The full case challenging the bill is expected to go to trial in November.

US District Court Judge Thomas Schroeder said three plaintiffs challenging the measure had a strong chance of proving that the state’s toilet-access measure violated federal law, and temporarily blocked the university from applying the state law.

“The individual transgender plaintiffs have clearly shown that they will suffer irreparable harm in the absence of preliminary relief,” he wrote, noting their assertions that single-occupant toilets were generally unavailable at the University of North Carolina.

 

One of the three people who challenged the law is University of North California student Joaquin Carcano.

“Today, the tightness that I have felt in my chest every day…. has eased. But the fight is not over: we won’t rest until this discriminatory law is defeated,” Mr Carcano said.

Legislators in North Carolina enacted the law after the town of Charlotte passed a bill allowing transgender people to use toilets according to gender identity.

Lawmakers in several other US states have proposed similar legislation – sometimes referred to as “bathroom bills”.

Some people have said that allowing transgender people to choose their toilet could lead to women and children being attacked.

They said they feared that predatory men could pose as transgender people and use legal protections as a cover.

NC School Policy Recommends Children Not Be Called Boys and Girls

TRUTH BOMBS: This is irrationality at it’s worst. The first law of logic is the law of identity. Something is what it is and not what it is not. The modern indoctrination centers are only confusing kids. Get your kids out of Public school before it is too late.

ARTICLE: WSOC-TV is reporting a North Carolina school system presentation to principals and counselors is recommending that kids are not referred to as boys and girls, but instead as scholars and students.

Doing away with boy and girl references is one of many policies included in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools bully prevention regulations.

One policy allows students to participate in extracurricular activities and overnight field trips based on their gender identity.

The “Supporting Transgender Students” presentation also suggests evaluating gender-based activities and “maintain only those that have clear and sound pedagogical purpose.”

The North Carolina Values Coalition calls the rules radical.

“School is no longer about reading, writing and arithmetic. It is now about gender fluidity,” Tami Fitzgerald of the NC Values Coalition told WSOC.

A protest against the recommendations is being organized and is set to be held before the school board meeting on Tuesday.

Now boys can wear skirts to school – as new ‘gender neutral’ uniforms introduced

TRUTH BOMBS: The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.” Deuteronomy 22:5 (KJV)

ARTICLE: Eighty state schools are allowing boys to wear skirts and girls to wear trousers under new government-funded “gender neutral” uniform policies.

The schools have either dropped references to girls and boys in their dress codes or have rewritten their uniform policy to say that pupils as young as five can dress in the uniform in which they feel most comfortable.

It is part of a government-funded drive for schools to be more sensitive to “trans” children who are questioning their gender identity.

Diversity campaigners have warned schools that current policies risk discriminating against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender pupils (LGBT).

Julie Robinson, general secretary at the Independent Schools Council, said public and private schools would soon follow suit and that some had already adjusted their policies to accommodate transgender children.

But Christian organisations have raised concerns that introducing a choice of uniform could confuse young children and lead older pupils to question their identities at a time when they need reassurance.

Allens Croft School in Birmingham is believed to be the first state primary to declare that it has a “gender neutral” uniform. Under the rules, which are the same for both sexes, boys can wear a grey or black skirt or pinafore while girls can wear grey or black trousers.
