        "Regardless of my position and whether I'm employed or not, parents still deserve to know what's going on in Indianapolis,"

Indiana teacher who exposed CRT teaching put on leave, has email locked, banned from school buildings

An Indianapolis school administrator who went viral for explaining how his district is pushing Critical Race on children has been locked out of his email and Google Drive accounts and been told to work from home because he was causing other staff members "anxiety."

"As of one hour ago, Indianapolis Public Schools has suspended my access to email & Google Drive," Indianapolis district science coordinator, instructional coach, and administrator Tony Kinnett posted on Twitter along with a screenshot. ~~~~~~~~~

Kinnett added that he has been banned from going to any school building or from hosting professional development while also pledging to continue to release more information that he has already downloaded from the district. "It's a good thing I downloaded all of the other racist documents & videos from the public server weeks ago," Kinnett added in the Twitter thread.

Kinnett went viral earlier this month after posting a video outlining how Critical Race Theory is taught in Indianapolis schools and said that administrators are "lying" when they say otherwise. ~~~~~~~~~ 
 
Regarding his future at the district, Kinnett says he has not been told he is no longer employed but says he was warned over the last few weeks that he and the school would have to "part ways" if he continued to post publicly available information about Critical Race Theory online. "Regardless of my position and whether I'm employed or not, parents still deserve to know what's going on in Indianapolis," Kinnett said. "Whether they support it or they disagree with it they deserve to know."

        "Thomas, now going by the name Lia, “took home a pair of gold medals in the 200 free and 100 free with margins of 5.4 seconds and 1.3 seconds.”

Male Swimmer Dominates UPenn's Women's Swim Team

Lia Thomas: Outrage when a University of Pennsylvania trans swimmer breaks  women's records after transitioning from male to female. » Brinkwire

Will Thomas was a moderately successful swimmer on the University of Pennsylvania’s men’s swim team for three years. But then he took a year off, reemerged as transgender, and started dominating the women’s swim team.

“One of my big concerns for trans people is feeling alone,” he told Penn Today. “Even if you don’t pay attention to the news … about states proposing and passing vicious anti-trans legislation, it can feel very lonely and overwhelming.”

“The process of coming out as being trans and continuing to swim was a lot of uncertainty and unknown around an area that’s usually really solid. Realizing I was trans threw that into question. Was I going to keep swimming? What did that look like?”

He added, “Being trans has not affected my ability to do this sport and being able to continue is very rewarding.”

 

According to SwimSwam.com, during a meet with Columbia University last month, Thomas, now going by the name Lia, “took home a pair of gold medals in the 200 free and 100 free with margins of 5.4 seconds and 1.3 seconds.”

She He contributed three first-place finishes and a second, winning the 200 free (1:46.92) and the 100 free (50.35) and contributing to the winning 200 medley relay (22.76 anchor) and runner-up 200 free relay (22.74 anchor). Her His 100 and 200 free times were not far off the Penn women’s team’s records (49.37/1:45.69), and her his time in the 200 free ranks her him 9th in the NCAA so far this season.

       "The change suggests promoters of CRT are shying away from using the term as it becomes more politically charged...The 2021 version simply mentions "mixed-methods research techniques." 

        You can call a lemon an avocado, but it is still a lemon. People need to stay aware of the tricks.

Federally funded critical race theory program removes 'critical race theory' from description

Five years ago, the U.S. Department of Education approved a grant application for a summer research program whose "core feature" was introducing student fellows to "critical race theory."

The feds approved a five-year extension of the original grant for the Research Institute for Scholars of Equity (RISE) this year, with one notable and unexplained omission: the term "critical race theory."

The change suggests promoters of CRT are shying away from using the term as it becomes more politically charged. This summer, the U.S. Senate approved an amendment to the budget reconciliation bill that would ban federal funding for the teaching of CRT in schools.

The 2016 version says students will use "critical race theory (as well as mixed-methods research techniques) as a means of studying issues such as teacher quality, education policy, and race and social justice in education." The 2021 version simply mentions "mixed-methods research techniques." 

A new sentence may be intended to surreptitiously refer to CRT: "During this institute, fellows study the sociocultural contexts of American schooling and learn how to formulate culturally competent research questions." 

The two applications otherwise barely changed, mainly to reflect different participating institutions, according to a web page comparison engine. For example, "Latino/a" remains in both even though the gender-neutral "Latinx" is now standard in higher ed and was already common in 2016.

North Carolina Central University runs the program, which has now received more than $2.6 million in taxpayer dollars across the two five-year grants. RISE "strongly encourages" underrepresented minority students — which typically means non-Asian nonwhites — to apply.

Gender-Neutral Bathrooms: Overkill or Vital? | Diggit Magazine

Chicago Public Schools Announces That It Will Be Moving To Genderless Bathrooms in Creepy Video Featuring Elementary Students - Bathrooms Will Be "Open For Use By Anyone Who Feels Comfortable"

On Tuesday, Chicago Public Schools (CPS) announced that as of December first, every single school in the district – including elementary schools – will be required to have genderless bathrooms with the “appropriate signage.”  The CPS district is the 3rd largest in the US and includes over 600 schools with a total of over 330,000 studentsaccording to their website.

CPS’ chief title IX officer Camie Pratt made the announcement in a short clip that was tweeted by the district, deceptively billing the move “as a step forward” for “gender equity.” She explained how the district will be providing updated signage to all schools that include phrases like “Men’s +: This restroom has both urinals and stalls. All who feel comfortable are welcome to use this restroom.”

Seriously? “All who feel comfortable?” Keep in mind, these are going to be in elementary and middle schools.

        "In fact, in some instances parents could be prevented from opposing sex changes for their own children. Witnesses testified to Parliament that they had been helped by therapy that would, under the new law, be banned."

https://www.lifesitenews.com/blogs/conservatives-allow-canadas-conversion-therapy-ban-to-pass-with-no-objections/

Conservatives allow Canada’s conversion therapy ban to pass with zero opposition

Passage of Bill C-4, which goes to the senate next, is a huge disappointment because Conservative MPs who objected to the ban previously offered no resistance this time.

On the morning of December 1, Conservative leader Erin O’Toole informed the press that he would allow his caucus a free vote on the so-called “conversion therapy ban,” which months earlier had been the subject of intense scrutiny. While most MPs opposed conversion therapy, there were concerns that the deliberately broad definition proposed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberals would ban pastoral conversations between clergy and their parishioners and leave adults with unwanted same-sex attraction unable to receive the counselling they desired. In fact, in some instances parents could be prevented from opposing sex changes for their own children.

Witnesses testified to Parliament that they had been helped by therapy that would, under the new law, be banned. One young woman, now married with children, related how a sexual assault had left her traumatized, confused, and in desperate need of help that this law would deny her. As a result of testimonies such as these and outstanding concerns with the definition, MP Garnett Genuis launched the website Fix the Definition, replete with a list of ways the Liberals could amend the legislation, including:

Ensure that no laws discriminate against Canadians by limiting what services they can receive based on their sexual orientation or gender identity;

Allow parents to speak with their own children about sexuality and gender, and set  house rules about sex and relationships;

Allow free and open conversations about sexuality and sexual behaviour; and

Not criminalize professional and religious counselling voluntarily requested and  consented to by LGBTQ2 Canadians.

When the Liberals declined to address these concerns, 62 Conservative MPs voted against it. Thus, it came as a nasty and heartbreaking shock when on the afternoon of December 1, the Conservative Party presented a motion to fast-track Bill C-4, skipping the entire deliberative process entirely to send the bill directly to the Senate. The motion passed with unanimous consent — not a single MP stood up to say ‘nay.’ This is one of the few instances where a single vote would have ensured that the deliberative process was respected. All of the witness testimony, all of the concerns, all of the hard work put in by stakeholders to ensure that those most impacted by this law would be heard — gone.

          As long as "Lia" is "allowed to compete," why get mad just because "she" wins by 10 hours and 27 minutes? It's not the time that counts, it's the pronoun.

A trans swimmer and senior at the University of Pennsylvania, who previously spent three years competing as a man, smashed two US records while competing at a weekend contest, sparking fresh claims of unfairness.

On Sunday, Lia Thomas, 22, put in an astounding performance at the Zippy Invitational Event in Akron, Ohio, that saw her finish the 1,650 yard freestyle 38 seconds ahead of her teammate  Anna Sofia Kalandaze.

Thomas's winning time was 15:59:71, with her UPenn teammate Anna Kalandaze coming second with a time of 16:37:44. 

Thomas's win was a record for the Zippy Meet, and the pool where the event took place. But she also managed to smash two US women's swimming records during earlier races at the same event.

          I have two questions: What kind of attorney would take a case like this, and what kind of a judge would hear a case like this?

Evie Toombes, woman with spina bifida, sues mom's doctor for millions

An English woman with spina bifida is suing her mother’s former doctor for millions of dollars in health care costs and damages claiming that she should never have been born. Evie Toombes, a 20-year-old equestrian show jumper from Lincolnshire, is suing her mother’s general practitioner, Dr. Philip Mitchell, for “wrongful conception” after he allegedly failed to advise her mother to take folic acid supplements before getting pregnant that she claims resulted in her birth defect, according to The Telegraph.

Evie Toombes, a woman with spina bifida has sued her mother’s doctor for millions in damages, claiming she should have never been born.  Instagram

Toombes was diagnosed with lipomyelomeningocele after her birth in November 2001, a neural tube defect to the spine. Her bones never properly developed along her spinal cord causing permanent disability.

She claims that her mother never would have had her if her doctor had informed her that she needed to take folic acid supplements to minimize the chances of the defect affecting her baby.

Her attorney, Susan Rodway, told the UK High Court judge that Toombes was suing for “having been born in a damaged state” and wants to recover millions of dollars needed to cover the costs of living with her condition.

Mitchell has denied any liability and has countered that he gave Caroline Toombes “reasonable advice,” although it is common practice to advise potential mothers to take the supplement before conceiving and through the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, The Telegraph reported. 

His attorney argued that it is his practice to advise prospective parents that 400 milligrams of folic acid, however that if the mother had a good diet, folic acid levels anyway are typically at a healthy level and supplements would be less important.

        "Parents and pastors can be jailed up to 5 years...The law would give Children’s Aid Societies the excuse to separate the child from his or her parents, charging that they are practicing a form of “conversion therapy” and that their traditional parenting represents “torture.”

https://www.lifesitenews.com/opinion/trudeaus-ban-on-conversion-therapy-will-outlaw-biblical-teaching-on-homosexuality-divide-families/

Trudeau’s ban on ‘conversion therapy’ will outlaw Biblical teaching on homosexuality, divide families

Trudeau's true goal behind Bill C-4, is to make it illegal to share biblical teaching or moral guidance about transgenderism and homosexuality, whether you’re a religious leader or loving parents. 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C-4 will make the expression of these Christian sexual teachings illegal, whether they are from a pulpit to warn believers about the consequences of sin, or in the intimacy of a family home as a private conversation between parents and their gender-confused child. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It went straight from Trudeau’s election platform to the floor of the Senate. Not one single Conservative MP stood up to vote against unanimous consent, and so force the normal parliamentary debates and votes to happen. Not even the pro-life MPs who were sitting in the House.

Now it’s up to the chamber of sober second thought to decide whether parents and religious leaders should be criminalized. Obviously, the 60 or so Conservative MPs who voted against the previous version of Bill C-4 were threatened or intimidated into letting it pass.

No doubt, the specter of being kicked out of the Conservative caucus – just like O’Toole did to Senator Denise Batters, Derek Sloan MP – and the suspension of CPC National Councillor Bert Chen (driven by O’Toole), hung like the sword of Damocles over their heads. But fear of getting punished by O’Toole is no excuse for holding one’s tongue and fast-tracking what is arguably one of the most dangerous and unconstitutional pieces of proposed legislation ever seen in Canada.

This abandonment of parliamentary democracy is a sign of Mr. Trudeau moving closer to having the dictatorial power he has long admired and desired. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Parents and pastors can be jailed up to 5 years - There were many reasons for MPs to allow debate on this bill. Not only does it take away the right of adults who no longer wish to identify as LGBT to get the type of clinical therapy or spiritual counselling that they want for themselves, as there are even graver reasons.

For me, the most alarming aspect of C-4 is that it can put parents in jail for up to five years if they dare to affirm their gender-confused child in the body he or she was born. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bill C-4 will make it illegal for mothers and fathers to prevent their underage daughters from taking puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It’s undeniable, from the Liberal government’s own lips, that Bill C-4 is really a parental prosecution bill. The true goal of the conversion therapy ban is to enable law enforcement and para-legal agencies to reach into the home and the church. Even if law enforcement doesn’t choose to lock up the parents in jail, there are other ways to ruin their lives. The law would give Children’s Aid Societies the excuse to separate the child from his or her parents, charging that they are practicing a form of “conversion therapy” and that their traditional parenting represents “torture.”

         "A team source who was at Wednesday’s meeting says the administration drew a line in the sand and announced that Lia Thomas wasn’t going anywhere and it was non-negotiable."

Female UPenn Swimmers Demoralized: "No Matter How Much Work They Put In, They're Going To Lose"

Two female University of Pennsylvania swimmers have recently voiced their frustrations to OutKick regarding their teammate, transgender Penn swimmer Lia Thomas, who is smashing collegiate records previously set by biological females in the sport.

Thomas has brought teammates to tears and created a sense of hopelessness among the female athletes, reports Outkick, which interviewed the students anonymously as campus brass has urged them not to talk to media:

The second Penn swimmer to come forward was at the University of Akron Zippy Invitational where she watched Lia Thomas beat fellow teammate Anna Kalandadze by 38 seconds in the 1650 freestyle. OutKick’s source described Penn swimmers on the Akron pool deck as upset and crying, knowing they were going to be demolished by Thomas.

“They feel so discouraged because no matter how much work they put in it, they’re going to lose. Usually, they can get behind the blocks and know they out-trained all their competitors and they’re going to win and give it all they’ve got,” the source said.

“Now they’re having to go behind the blocks knowing no matter what, they do not have the chance to win. I think that it’s really getting to everyone.”

According to Outkick, Thomas bragged on the sidelines at Akron about being number one in the nation.

“That was so easy, I was cruising,” Thomas allegedly said after one race. After another race, Thomas was allegedly unhappy with his time but said “At least I’m still No. 1 in the country.”

~~~~~~~~~~~

A team source who was at Wednesday’s meeting says the administration drew a line in the sand and announced that Thomas wasn’t going anywhere and it was non-negotiable. That leaves disgusted teammates no choice but to either stay quiet or speak up against the wishes of the school and risk repercussions.
