       "But the problem is that once we accept and legally enshrine transgender premises into law — which we have done and are continuing to do — there are very real and very terrifying consequences that come as a result."

Prestigious medical journal, the Lancet, is the transgender movement’s latest conquest

The reason we must track these tectonic cultural shifts with such care is not out of some morbid voyeurism or self-righteousness. It is because these small shifts amount to a sea change.

The Lancet is a weekly peer-reviewed medical journal that is considered one of the most prestigious in the world. It’s the oldest and best-known, founded in 1823. It is also the transgender movement’s latest conquest.

On the front page of one of The Lancet’s most recent issues is an article titled “Periods on Display,” a review of an exhibition on menstruation at London’s Vagina Museum. The description reads as follows: “Historically, the anatomy and physiology of bodies with vaginas have been neglected.”

The backlash from readers was immediate, with many calling out the sexism and misogyny of referring to women as “bodies with vaginas” simply because some men choose to identify as women. The ongoing erasure of women, with the Democratic party, progressive academics, and media outlets obediently using phrases such as “birthing persons” while insisting, paradoxically, that “trans women are women.”


To sum up: A Labour MP objects to women being referred to as “individuals with a cervix,” and her party leader cites it as evidence that more action must be taken to ensure that biological men identifying as women are recognized as such.

It may be tempting to laugh this sort of thing off. After all, academics and Labour MPs have been saying ludicrous things for a long time, and most of us would like to shove them all into a basket of ignorables and move on with our lives. But the problem is that once we accept and legally enshrine transgender premises into law — which we have done and are continuing to do — there are very real and very terrifying consequences that come as a result.

This week, for example, the Supreme Court of Western Australia ruled on a landmark case involving a 15-year-old child identifying as transgender after the children’s court removed the child from the parental home. The court cited “emotional abuse” because the parents opposed puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones, and the court stated that the father “misgendered” his child. As such, the government decided that the child would be subject to mental and emotional abuse and had to be removed. The parents have lost their appeal and will not get their child back.

To reiterate: The government removed a child from the parental home because those parents did not support a sex-change for a minor, and when the courts had to decide if the parents or trans activists knew best for their child, they chose trans activists. That is not just another perversely humorous insanity from our elites — that is every parent’s nightmare.

        "For the first time in 113 years, a trans woman won sportswoman of the year award from the University of Otago."

         Sure, as if they allowed trans woman to be considered 113 years ago, as if trans women existed 113 years ago.

Trans Weightlifter Laurel Hubbard Wins Coveted Sportswoman of the Year Award

For the first time in 113 years, a trans woman won sportswoman of the year award from the University of Otago.

Weightlifter Laurel Hubbard won the coveted award this year after qualifying for the Olympics.

The New Zealand Herald reported:

Transgender weightlifter Laurel Hubbard has been named University of Otago sportswoman of the year at the Blues awards earlier this week.

         "while property crimes continued their long-running decline and dropped 8% from 2019."

          A lot more people are spending a lot more time at home, and they watch out for their neighborhoods.

FBI Data Shows An Unprecedented Spike In Murders Nationwide In 2020

The number of murders in the United States jumped by nearly 30% in 2020 compared with the previous year in the largest single-year increase ever recorded in the country, according to official FBI statistics released Monday.

The data shows 21,570 homicides in the U.S. in 2020, which is a staggering 4,901 more than in 2019. The tally makes clear — in concrete terms — just how violent last year was.

The overall violent crime rate, which includes murder, assault, robbery and rape, inched up around 5%, while property crimes continued their long-running decline and dropped 8% from 2019.

But the spike in murders jumps out in the FBI report because of the sheer scale of the change.

Jeff Asher, a data consultant who studies crime rates, said the increase is the largest since national records began being kept in 1960s.

The murder rate is still below its historic peaks reached in the 1990s, but the figures from 2020 show the problem has become much more widespread.

       “You are all child abusers. You prey upon impressionable children and indoctrinate them into your insane ideological cult..."

Matt Walsh UNLOADS on the Loudoun County school board, drops some MOABS on them

Out of the gate Walsh hits them hard:

“You are all child abusers. You prey upon impressionable children and indoctrinate them into your insane ideological cult, a cult which holds many fanatical views, but none so deranged as the idea that boys are girls and girls are boys. By imposing this vile nonsense on students, even to the point of forcing young girls to share locker rooms with boys, you deprive these kids of safety and privacy and something more fundamental too, which is truth. If education is not grounded in truth, then it is worthless. Worse, it is poison. You are poison. You are predators.

I can see why you tried to stop us from speaking. You know that your ideas are indefensible. You silence the opposing side because you have no argument. You can only hide under your beds like pathetic little gutless cowards hoping we shut up and go away. But we won’t. I promise you that.”

Wow! What a great sixty seconds of pure, unadulterated truth. I can’t wait to hear what he’s got to say the next time he’s at the podium.

       “Grossness is not a good objection,” wrote Atul Gawande in a 1998 Slate op-ed. “Lots of operations are gross–leg amputations, burn surgery, removal of facial tumors, etc. But that does not make them wrong.”

       Do you see this comparison. Biden's pick just made a positive comparison between medical treatments used to save lives, and medical procedures designed to murder the most innocent of all lives. Amazing!

Biden's pick for USAID claimed 'grossness' is no reason to reject partial birth abortion

'We imagine, as we look in the fetus's eyes, that there is someone in there'

President Joe Biden’s nominee to lead global health development at the U.S. Agency for International Development formerly suggested that brutal partial birth abortion techniques should not be vilified over other abortion procedures, saying, “Grossness is not a good objection.”

“Grossness is not a good objection,” wrote Atul Gawande in a 1998 Slate op-ed. “Lots of operations are gross–leg amputations, burn surgery, removal of facial tumors, etc. But that does not make them wrong.”

A partial birth abortion is one in which an abortion doctor delivers a living baby until all the body except the baby’s head is outside the mother’s body, then punctures the back of the baby’s head, “removing the baby’s brains,” according to the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act.

Biden’s Health and Human Services Director Xavier Becerra has repeatedly refused to acknowledge that the procedure is illegal, though the highly discussed piece of legislation passed Congress in 2003, was signed by former President George W. Bush, and was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court as constitutional in 2007.

Gawande also describes a partial birth abortion in gruesome detail in his 1998 op-ed, acknowledging that late-term abortions are “disturbing” since the unborn baby is ” big now–like a fully formed child.”

“Partial-birth abortion is, if anything, less grotesque,” he wrote, comparing partial birth abortion to Dilation and Evacuation procedures. “The fetus is delivered feet first. To get the large head out, the doctor cuts open a hole at the base of the fetus’s skull and inserts tubing to suck out the brain, which collapses the skull.”

The Biden nominee's frankness in discussing partial birth abortion is reminiscent of a very different period in the fight over abortion — advocates of the past few years are much less likely to discuss abortion techniques with such candor.

       "Curiously, Garland’s letter didn’t actually specify any credible threats."

AG Merrick Garland Instructs FBI to Mobilize Against Parents Who Oppose Critical Race Theory, Covid Mandates in Public Schools

The Biden Regime is targeting political opponents and using the might of the federal government to abolish the First Amendment by classifying dissent as “domestic terrorism.”

US Attorney General Merrick Garland has instructed the FBI to mobilize against parents who oppose Critical Race Theory (CRT) and Covid mandates, citing ‘threats.’

Merrick Garland’s letter to the FBI follows the National School Board Association’s request to classify protests as “domestic terrorism.”

“Threats against public servants are not only illegal, they run counter to our nation’s core values,” wrote Attorney General Garland. “Those who dedicate their time and energy to ensuring that our children receive a proper education in a safe environment deserve to be able to do their work without fear for their safety.”

Curiously, Garland’s letter didn’t actually specify any credible threats.

“Citing an increase in harassment, intimidation and threats of violence against school board members, teachers and workers in our nation’s public schools, today Attorney General Merrick B. Garland directed the FBI and U.S. Attorneys’ Offices to meet in the next 30 days with federal, state, Tribal, territorial and local law enforcement leaders to discuss strategies for addressing this disturbing trend. These sessions will open dedicated lines of communication for threat reporting, assessment and response by law enforcement.” the DOJ’s press release read.

The DOJ will be creating a task force “consisting of representatives from the department’s Criminal Division, National Security Division, Civil Rights Division, the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys, the FBI, the Community Relations Service and the Office of Justice Programs, to determine how federal enforcement tools can be used to prosecute these crimes…”

       I have a solution for you. Just change the F grade from failure to fabulous. While you are at it, change the A from excellent to abysmal.

Middle school eliminates 'F' grade to combat 'systemic racism'

A Minnesota middle school is eliminating the failing "F" grade. As explained in a YouTube video posted by Sunrise Park Middle School, the 2021-22 school year does not include 0-49.9 percentiles for students. Instead, Associate Principal Norman Bell elaborated that students will be encouraged to retake quizzes, according to Fox News.

"Our whole intent is to ensure that grades focus on the process of learning," Principal Christina Pierre said in the video. "Therefore, grades will not include behaviors, attitude, tardiness to class, whether the assignment was turned in late or on time. There's other ways that we can communicate those things to parents."

The district's superintendent, Wayne Kazmierczak, was awarded the Minnesota Association of School Administrators 2021 Superintendent of the Year. The school's website discusses the award and the requirement of an "equity audit" before being awarded. The equity audit would seemingly measure grade disparities among races, and it remains unclear whether the district has eliminated failing grades as a result of this equity audit.

"Grading can be one of the largest areas in which systemic racism and inequities are perpetuated. Dr. Kazmierczak and WBLAS believe grades should be a measure of what a student knows and has mastered in a given course. Grading should not be a behaviour punishment and should not be a measure of how well a student can survive stress at home," the website reads.
