Oh, how the mighty have fallen. J. K. Rowling, the billionaire author of the Harry Potter series, a progressive princess on social media for virtue-signaling, was canceled a couple of years ago over posts she made about transgenders.
Now, a “Harry Potter” event at a book festival in New Zealand has been canceled because of the same comments.
Featherston Booktown Karukatea Festival organizers decided to cancel a scheduled “Harry Potter” interactive quiz, which “had been extremely popular at previous events,” according to Stuff. The festival folks said they felt they had to pull the quiz because of Rowling’s prior comments by that could offend someone. Translation: They’re afraid of the Woke Supremacy.
Peter Biggs, the board chairman of the Festival, said that the decision to cancel the “Harry Potter” quiz was a difficult one, and ultimately pulled the event after consulting with members of the literary sector and the LGBTQ community. I wonder if they consult with any conservative communities when holding an event for a progressive who trashes them?
“The overwhelming response was there was a risk around causing distress to particular members of the community, and that was the last thing we wanted to do,” Biggs said. “We always thought Booktown should be an inclusive, welcoming place for everyone, so we took the decision not to go with ‘Harry Potter.'” I wonder if any of that statement wasn’t written by the gay mafia?
Jenny Whyte, a Featherston resident, and feminist activist, said she wasn’t shocked that they canceled the event.
“I think they might be trying to capitalize on the current fad of cancel culture,” Whyte told Stuff. “Featherston Booktown has a session selling tickets to a panel discussing cancel culture, so there’s an irony certainly.” And there you have it. The Woke Supremacy has enough street creds to screw up an event at a flipping book festival.
Rowling knows all about cancel culture. The bestselling author upset the outrage merchants back in 2019 when she gave support to a researcher who was fired from her job after tweeting that men and women can’t change their biological sex by having elective surgeries. The proper response to Rowling’s support of that statement should have been, “Well, duh,” but the Woke Supremacy, the party of science, did not approve of the real scientific message.
And once you’re on the Woke Supremacy’s radar, they never stop watching you. You cannot apologize enough times to get back in with the Supremacy, and they just continue to pounce on you until you go away quietly forever.
Back in June, Rowling was accused of spreading transphobia [is that a real word] for pointing out there there are by definition biological genders, and even though she said that she “respects every trans person’s right to live any way that feels authentic and comfortable to them,” it didn’t matter.
“If sex isn’t real, there’s no same-sex attraction. If sex isn’t real, the lived reality of women globally is erased. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives. It isn’t hate to speak the truth,” Rowling wrote.
“The idea that women like me, who’ve been empathetic to trans people for decades, feeling kinship because they’re vulnerable in the same way as women — ie, to male violence — ‘hate’ trans people because they think sex is real and has lived consequences — is a nonsense,” she continued.
“I respect every trans person’s right to live any way that feels authentic and comfortable to them. I’d march with you if you were discriminated against on the basis of being trans. At the same time, my life has been shaped by being female. I do not believe it’s hateful to say so.”
It didn’t matter. The author committed the number one heresy: she went against the Woke Supremacy, and that’s rarely, if ever, forgiven.
Rowling didn’t yet learn her lesson with the online mob because just a month later she was at it again with the whole common sense thing, this time about hormone therapy and gender reassignment surgery often being over-prescribed to teenagers. And the outrage continued.
By December 2020, Rowling finally realized that Twitter is an impossible venue to get your point across and became fed up with cancel culture and online bullying even though she used to do it via virtue-signaling. That’s when she called for an end to the “climate of fear” over the fiery debate about transgender people.
“Many are afraid to speak up because they fear for their jobs and even for their personal safety,” Rowling said during a Good Housekeeping magazine interview. “This climate of fear serves nobody well, least of all trans people.”
“I believe everybody should be free to live a life that is authentic to them, and that they should be safe to do so,” Rowling said. “I also believe that we need a more nuanced conversation around women’s rights and around the huge increase in numbers of girls and young women who are seeking to transition.”
I attended a PTA meeting for Wake Co. North Carolina on March 20, and in this article, I will explain what I saw that should outrage parents. A group of educators in an Inclusion seminar were discussing how to go around a parent’s consent regarding what pronoun a child uses to identify their gender so that the child, who may be transgender, could be affirmed by the school without parental consent or approval.
Talking about identifying a child as young as elementary school, education professionals in Wake Co. North Carolina agreed, “you do… you don’t need to be connecting… or contacting the parents for every certain little thing, right?”
“This Virtual Conference will take place on Saturday, March 20, 2021, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. We will offer a variety of 45 minutes workshops during the day, with a special lunch and learn session taking place from 11:45 a.m. to 12:50 p.m. Please register as soon as possible; the deadline is March 14, 2021,” the Google sign-up form reads.
According to AP Dillion, who reported on the same PTA Meeting, describing the meeting as a series of groups who were actually “A small membership is dictating leftist ideology, social justice, and critical race theory topics to millions of parents in North Carolina, and to the tens hundreds of thousands of parents in Wake County.”
And she is right, as exposed in the following video of the March 20th PTA meeting.
Kori Hennessey (they/them) is the Director of Education & Programs at LGBT Center of Raleigh Pronouns: They/Them/Their led the discussion in the Transgender 101 breakout with women from Wake County Public Schools, PTA to talk about what school officials should do if a child wishes to be identified as a Transgender, and the parents do not consent or are not supportive.
The footage starts with Hennessey talking to a group of women about when a child wants to be addressed by a genre pronoun that does not match their birth records, and when the parents have specifically not consented to the change in pronouns.
“Can the school give the children resources and affirm the child without the parent’s support? Where are the lines of parental rights and well-being of the child,” asked Tisha Shah.
The moderator had just removed a parent for asking a question and not being “affirming.”
“There are situations where there needs to be, especially with a child who is with school counselors; there is a confidentiality part of that, right? Where, if a student is coming to you as a counselor saying like, look, I really, you know just want to talk this out, and there is confidentiality… there are things. unless the student is showing that they are going to harm themselves or harm others… there is a part where.. a point where… you know there is… you do… you don’t need to be connecting… or contacting the parents for every certain little thing, right? Hennessey said.
“Right, right,” Shah said.
“And I know that gets to be very ah… the lines kind of get confusing and blurred because you are like ok, so what is the responsibility, what is a liability of the school, etc., etc.. however, there are resources that you all are able to provide by the student, and I think that at a point then you can’t say, ok, well I am going to give you advice, and I am going to do this, or this or this.. right?” Hennessey said.
Hennessey can be heard rambling and being unclear about what was being communicated.
“Mindy had put into the chat talking about The Trevor Project, that is a really good one for um… students to a, you know, look into on their own time or you as a teacher. As a counselor, it is a really good option to look into. Thank you, Mindy for that. So if you want to add anything to that,” Hennessey said.
The Trevor Project is a website with content about how to affirm a young person who believes they are transgender.
Mindy Covin asked, “so Tisha, you are a Wake County Teacher?”
“um, no. I am a parent in Wake County, but I’m a Speech Therapist for another School where this situation has come up, but it is not a Wake County School. It is a virtual school,” Shah said.
“I recommend following up for sure with me, by email. I am a teacher and librarian, and I can provide some resources for that it is a tricky situation, um, so and we want to be respectful,” Covin said.
It sounds as if the school librarians have resources for children to help them affirm their new identity choices.
“Right, right. I am not directly involved with all of this but um, the counselor and two (computer froze),” Shah said.
Enter Lora Pilcher who is a mental health counselor in North Carolina, who chimed in.
“Well, the best thing to be affirming for me is to …that you are going to need the parent’s permission to legally change the name on the birth certificate, that is something that North Carolina just passed that you are going to legally be able to use their preferred names on their documents, you on their school documents and on their transcripts and on their graduation certificate things like that so that obviously would require parents permission. But really, to be affirming, you can use their names in the classroom like as you are referring to them, and that goes miles with students, that is really what they want, can you use my correct pronouns and my correct name. I can not tell you how many times working with youth that I hear my teacher won’t use my correct pronouns, they purposefully misgender me, they purposefully use the wrong names,” Picher said.
So the school professionals know that they need parents’ permission and consent and are talking about how to go around the parents, disregard their known wishes, or pretend they didn’t know and go ahead and do what the child claims they want.
“That is kind of what I was wondering if there is some rule about that because they know that I am a kinda LGBTQ kind of advocate, so I think that is why I am kind of brought into the conversation, but I don’t directly work with this student. The Guidance counselor and teachers want to support the student, but for whatever reason, they think that they are not allowed to use the chosen name without the parent’s permission…” Shah said.
How does Shah not know about parental rights? How do the school officials not have a very well cited legal set of criteria for these massive school disruptions into gender ID?
“Well, you don’t need parent’s permission to address a .. do you.. so when you have a child in the class, and you use a nickname, do you ask the parent’s permission?” Picher said.
So the difference between Lora and Lorie is the same difference as using massive school resources and time of all students to identify a child as a different gender than they are.
“Right..” Shah said.
“I can’t tell you how many teachers I grew up with that would call me Lorie when my name is Lora, or that pet nickname for me, and they didn’t ask my parent’s permission to use that nickname; it is just that same concept,” Picher said.
Picher seems to believe that children should be allowed to disrupt others’ education to demand to be called by a different gender. In my day, kids called in fake bomb threats to get out of a day of instruction.
“For sure, Sing said. “I gave that same example, but I don’t know where they are hearing the whole information,” Shah said.
So she wasn’t being affirmed by the other teachers, and apparently, now she wants to get more firm with them.
“Well, if it comes from, a lot of it is fueled by bias,” Picher said.
Bias, that word is used a lot in these Equity programs.
“Yeah, for sure, for sure, “Shah said.
Of course, it is everyone else’s bias that is causing the problems, not their bias against parents of the children. Of course.
Hennessey comes back in. “Someone was asking about elementary school resources; if teachers had those, I think there will be a couple of info sheets going around with resources on them that will be really helpful. And Umm. if you want to do a little bit bigger dive, deeper dive into especially into those younger ages like elementary school umm.. definitely reach out to… there is an umm… there are a couple of things that I have in mind that I can probably point to you to, but I would have to get them, you know… links and stuff, but there are resources and literature and whatnot that you can look into” Hennessey said.
They are talking about children in elementary school. It is curious what other “resources” the school librarians have. If I were a parent with children in Wake Co. Schools, I would want to know.
“Thanks, Kori, this is Christine; as a PTA Board member feeling like you know we have funding to support something that is not provided by the county, you know what I mean, that we could provide for… I am not sure what they have. I guess that would be my… to touch base with guidance counselors, but just wondering what we could do to help… you know as at the elementary school level, ” Christine Stone asked.
Here is a parent on the Inclusion and diversity committee of the school board who is concerned that some teachers won’t go along with her ideas about Gender and want to use PTC funds to purchase materials that affirm a child’s choice of gender.
“Christine, are you on the PTA board? Covin asked.
“Yes,” Stone said.
“County or for child’s school?” Covin said.
“For my child’s school,” Stone said.
“Speak with the child’s librarian, and follow up with me as well,” Covin said.
So more librarians have more resources. Great.
“Okay, great idea. Awesome,” Stone said.
And the discussion went on about how the Wake County Equity Department could be used in schools to persuade teachers who were hesitant to join the diversity and inclusion groups.
Stone and Covin discuss how to pressure teachers to go along with their plan that school officials affirm children without the consent of parents.
From DIllion’s article, “What do your Parent Teacher Association (PTA) dollars pay for in Wake County? According to an email from the Wake County PTA Council announcing a “Diversity and Equity Inclusion Conference,” those dollars may be funding sessions such as “Male engagement,” “Transgender 101,” and becoming an “LGBTQ+ Youth Ally.”
And there you have it Wake County. This is what your publically funded Equity Department is spending a huge amount of time and resources on. No one from the Wake Co PTA talked about reaching families to help kids learn how to do reading, writing, or Math; remember those topics?
Something wicked is happening in Wake County, North Carolina, and parents need to quickly get themselves up to speed on Critical Race Theory. How far advanced their school has gone down the path of debasing their child’s pride in themselves, in their family, in their country, and their parents.
This Saturday I attended, online a PTA meeting held by the Equity office of Wake County Public Schools, and while I have screenshots and video of what I am about to tell you, the purpose of these articles not to humiliate anyone, but to see if a discussion can be opened between the members of this frightening Critical Race Theory and the public. Let us see if we can stop the invasion of Wake County Public Schools for the good of the children because people are being betrayed, and children are being harmed.
“It is dangerous to a child to not listen to what they want. When parents are not supportive or affirming, they are causing the child to be suicidal. Where is there confidentiality? People should consider in that case going to www.TrevorProject.com, or send the child to the librarian,” one of the PTA members said to the teacher who asked the question about how to help her student who wants a pronoun the parents will not agree to.
This is from the Wake Co. PTA. Schools believe that children must be believed:
“PARENTS OF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN DON’T NEED TO KNOW”
In a breakout meant to build bridges between the PTA and Trangenderd families, what I heard and saw and have confirmed with another observer ( and which I have on video), is members of the school and members of the PTA talking about disregarding parent’s beliefs and commands about addressing their children with pronouns that represent transgenderism, and to uphold what the child wants bypassing parent’s concerns.
It is the most shocking and egregious betrayal of trust that ever could unfold; teachers are marginalizing parents and making decisions about the mental health of a minor that may or may not know anything about.
At the breakout, a young educator, who I believe could not hold up to public security, spoke about their beliefs about being transgendered in a plea for more understanding for transgender youth. Ok, fine. However, the breakout turned into what looked like a recruiting session when a one concerned citizen asked a question.
A white male wanted clarification on something and was mocked, put off, and then was forcibly removed from the meeting twice. I have that recorded. I found him and have also spoken with him to confirm his questions.
ARE YOU GIVING ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN INFORMATION ABOUT MEDICAL TRANSITIONS WITHOUT PARENT’S CONSENT?
He wanted to know if you had considered any tests or polls that were outside of your bias that “all children must have their beliefs affirmed.” He said that he had seen studies that showed young people would outgrow feelings of gender confusion after a period of time if they were not pressured by social media or information about medical treatments. He asked if anyone had seen those studies. He was rejected and not affirmed.
After the man was removed, the comments two of us heard from this transgender breakout were that a teacher wanted to use a child’s transgender pronouns and if a parent would not relent and allow teachers to use those preferred pronouns, to just do it anyway.
Why was he removed? Why were his concerns not address? Because he is White? Because he is a man? What are you doing to America?
We both heard, “Parents don’t need to be informed of everything” and also to send that child to the librarian for some resources, without the consent of the parents.
One mental health therapist chimed in that parents didn’t need to know if a child was called a nickname, so why should they know if the teacher is using a transgender pronoun?
What I observed today is wrong. The teachers know it is wrong; everyone involved knows what happened on Saturday in the Transgender 101 breakout. The taxpaying public and parents need to understand what is happening. In my articles, I attempt to keep names and images concealed unless the people involved have already been online, but I promise you, I have more.
This PTA meeting with the Equity Affairs Department happens on the same day that the Department of Public Instruction has removed teacher training on CRT, instead of answering questions about their leftist indoctrination of teachers, leading them to disrupt classes, schools, families, and school districts.
School members, PTA members, I ask you, why you pretend to be concerned about students and want to build bridges to parents, as long as the parents are exactly who you personally affirm, and then betray other parents, who are trusting you with the most precious relationship of their lives, their children.
You are biased. You are racist. You are collecting public tax money, and you are harming children.
I got out of Community Organizing/ Social Work because of the lies they were feeding me about Americans. I expect better from you. Newly immigrated parents in that meeting were confused about why they were there.
Imagine when they start to find out from you your version of America is that it is just a criminal racist place. That will fill their hearts with joy, no doubt.
You are exploiting people. I could write articles on this for days. I prefer you straighten up instead. Who are you serving? Who do you answer to? Why do you believe your version of our society is more important than the American parents who pay your paycheck and trust you with their kids?
South Dakota Republican Governor Kristi Noem has been under fire since announcing she was not signing a transgender bill her legislature presented her that would protect women’s sports in the Mount Rushmore State by stating that biological men play in men’s sports and biological women play in women’s sports. Her reasoning wasn’t being accepted.
On Monday, Noem issued two executive orders that she says will take the place of the transgender sports bill that the state’s House of Representatives passed after it rejected her “style and form” revisions.
Here’s the thing. The bill presented to Noem would have upheld the biological definition of sex, which would ensure that “any athletic team or sport” sponsored or sanctioned by a public school, school district, qualifying association, or institution of higher education would have to be “expressly designated” as either a male, female, or coed team. But after Noem’s revisions, the protections are inapplicable at the collegiate level. They would also be meaningless because she removed a basic requirement for biological-sex verification. No one understands why she did it.
Noem took to social media to announce her decision in a three-part tweet on Monday after being trashed by many conservatives for trying to revise the Women’s Fairness in Sports bill in order to avoid lawsuits by transgender activists who wish to destroy women’s sports. Her critics noted that her revisions would have gutted the protections intended for biologically female athletes.
“Only girls should play girls’ sports. Given the legislature’s failure to accept my proposed revisions to HB 1217, I am immediately signing two executive orders to address this issue: one to protect fairness in K-12 athletics, and another to do so in college athletics,” said Noem.
“Additionally, I will be working with legislative leaders to schedule a special legislative session in late May or early June. The special session will address this important issue, as well others (medicinal marijuana and the latest federal spending package.) (2/3)”
“You can read the K-12 Executive Order here:
You can read the collegiate Executive Order here:
Noem caught a lot of heat from a lot of conservatives who believed she was caving to the Woke Supremacy. There’s more to it than just that. Up until this issue, Governor Noem was a rising star in the Republican Party, especially in how she handled the COVID pandemic where she never ordered the mandatory wearing of masks or draconian lockdowns and South Dakota fared better than 40 other states claiming that she never wanted to do anything that overstepped her legal authority and that the typical COVID-19 mitigation strategies did just that. Conservatives are getting tired of politicians they admire caving to the Left in this country and that’s how it appeared when Noem who said she was going to sign the bill suddenly did a 180 and gave the excuse that supposed “legal experts,” who were never named, advised her that the NCAA would eliminate any events in South Dakota and that she would lose in a court battle given today’s Woke political climate.
The governor’s revisions drew some flak from many conservatives who believed she let them down like so many other Republican politicians by caving to the Woke Supremacy. Noem’s office responded by hitting back at the “uniformed cancel culture” of her critics in a statement by Ian Fury (catchy name) spokesman who still looks like a teenager:
“If conservative media would take 5 seconds to read past the knee-jerk headlines and actually understand Governor Noem’s position, they’d come to a very different realization,” the statement read.
Noem defended her policies in an interview with talk radio host and TheBlaze founder Glenn Beck.
“I’m a small state. South Dakota is small,” she said. “We have to fight hard to even get any tournaments or games in the state of South Dakota. And I recognize the NCAA can come in and crush me, and can make an example out of me, and point to South Dakota and say, ‘See, no other state better challenge us whatsoever.’ So that’s why I’m trying to be smart about this and build a coalition of athletes, of states, of governors, of attorneys generals, and show the NCAA that we’re going to fight to make sure that only girls can play in girls’ sports.”
In South Carolina, there is a state representative who is raising some eyebrows inside and out of the LGBTQ community because he has introduced legislation to ban the ability of children from receiving transgender-reassignment surgery and blocking doctors from giving medications to minors that alter gender or delay puberty. In a world gone mad, you would think the introduction of such a bill would be courageous enough, but this guy is a Democrat.
South Carolina Democrat state Representative Cezar McKnight (D-101) introduced the legislation which has many people bringing the subject of minors being manipulated by Woke parents and other adults to make lifelong decisions that could harm them in the long run. Most sane people don’t like the idea of children being able to make the decision to undergo gender reassignment Wokeness, but most people don’t want to talk about it, because it’s such a bizarre subject and the entire Woke Supremacy is pushing this that many feel they don’t want to be canceled or labeled a bigot.
I believe that children as human beings are not capable of making rational decisions. Most scientists agree that most human beings become rational between 22 years of age and 25. The whole 18 and I’m an adult thing was done back in 1971 with the passage of the 26th Amendment lowering the voting age from 21 to 18 and that happened because a lot of young people made the argument that a male could be drafted into the Vietnam War at 18, but he couldn’t vote for the politicians who had the power to send him into war. It made sense, but it by no means was a measure of when a human being became an adult or even a rational thinker.
And then there’s the fact that many transgender adults agree that children should not be allowed to make this kind of decision.
The bill is named the “South Carolina Vulnerable Child Compassion and Protection Act,” and it will ban minors from being able to undergo transgender surgeries and other medical treatments and would charge any person with felonies who violates the law. The bill also carries the possibility of a prison sentence of up to 20 years.
The bill states in part:
…no person shall engage in, counsel, make a referral for, or cause any of the following practices to be performed upon a minor if the practice is performed for the purpose of attempting to alter the appearance of or affirm the minor’s perception of the minor’s gender or sex, if that perception is inconsistent with the minor’s sex as defined in this chapter:(1) prescribing, dispensing, administering, or otherwise supplying puberty-blocking medication to stop or delay normal puberty;(2) prescribing, dispensing, administering, or otherwise supplying supraphysiologic doses of testosterone or other androgens to females;(3) prescribing, dispensing, administering, or otherwise supplying supraphysiologic doses of estrogen to males;(4) performing surgeries that sterilize, including castration, vasectomy, hysterectomy, oophorectomy, orchiectomy, and penectomy;(5) performing surgeries that artificially construct tissue with the appearance of genitalia that differs from the individual’s sex, including metoidioplasty, phalloplasty, and vaginoplasty; or(6) removing any healthy or nondiseased body part or tissue.
The bill makes an exception allowing doctors to treat children that have legitimate “sex development” disorders, including either of the following:
(1) an individual born with external biological sex characteristics that are ambiguous and the ambiguity is unresolvable, including an individual born with forty-six XX chromosomes with virilization, forty-six XY chromosomes with undervirilization, or having both ovarian and testicular tissue; or(2) an individual whom a physician has otherwise diagnosed with a disorder of sexual development, in which the physician has determined through genetic or biochemical testing that the person does not have normal sex chromosome structure, sex steroid hormone production, or sex steroid hormone action for a male or female.
According to the Associated Press twenty-three Republicans have signed onto McKnight’s bill. McKnight has represented the district, which is two-thirds black and is heavily registered Democrat, for six years. Many in the black community do not go for the whole transgender thing. Brandon Tatum on his YouTube channel explained this much better than I am even capable.
“Black Democrats tend to be more conservative than white progressives,” McKnight told the Associated Press. “I would not have ever put this bill forward if I didn’t think the people in my district wouldn’t be receptive, and they are. Pastors, young parents, older parents, they all tell me the same thing: if you want to do this, wait until you’re 18.”
“This bill isn’t anti-trans,” McKnight said. “I just don’t think to make a sex change during the teen years is something someone should do.” Oh, you know darn right well that the Woke Supremacy is going to claim the bill is hateful and anti-transgender when the reality is the movement to suck kids into the movement is downright evil. How about letting kids be kids before the adults try to force them to destroy their lives?
A transgender woman (a biological male) is now another step closer to being crowned Miss USA.
Kataluna Enriquez, born a biological male, won the Miss Silver State USA pageant this week, which is an event thought of as the most important preliminary competition for the Miss Nevada USA pageant, KVVU-TV reported.
KVVU called it a “monumental win” for Enriquez, who now moves forward to the statewide competition in the pageant circuit that leads to Miss USA and, eventually, the Miss Universe competition. Oh, boy! Pun intended.
The pageants, which are all run under the umbrella of the Miss Universe Organization, were owned in the past by former President Donald Trump and are recognized around the globe for awarding some of the most sought-after crowns in the pageant world.
After winning the pageant a local news outlet interviewed Enriquez, who said it was “a celebration of womanhood and diversity and this celebration of being your true self.” You got that right. I don’t know how much more diverse a “Miss” beauty pageant can be than having a biological male winning it. How come they don’t just throw transgender beauty pageants? Wait, what? They do? Then how come they let transgender women participate in a biological female beauty pageant? Will they allow cis men or women to compete in a transgender pageant? Does asking those questions make me a hater in the Woke Supremacy world? I really am curious, because I don’t hate anyone, even if I disagree with them.
Enriquez has entered and won transgender pageants in the past and signed up for other cisgender competitions, but this is considered a huge win, especially since he’s a guy suffering from a mental illness.
I guess someone has to say it. Gender Dysphoria is a diagnosis that is listed in what’s called the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders or (DSM-5), a manual published by the American Psychiatric Association to diagnose mental conditions. Do you get that? It’s a listed mental condition and the world has just decided to ignore that and act as if it’s not a condition at all and it doesn’t need treatment. Gender Dysphoria is the first mental disorder that has political protection.
Enriquez let on that she hasn’t always been liked that much in the pageant world. Gosh, we can only wonder why. She remembered a pageant in the past that she entered when the event organizers heard a rumor that she had a Mr. Happy and was transgender, and they required her to provide medical documents to prove she was a female. They also allegedly refused to assign her a roommate. But all of that was before the world went Woke and by Woke I mean crazy before it was considered a hate crime to tell a person who was born with a penis that he’s a man.
“I was asked to provide documents that were invasive in my opinion physically asking me to get a letter from my doctor,” Enriquez said. “It brought me back to a time where I felt like I was not welcome.” Maybe a guy isn’t welcome in a women’s beauty pageant.
They required Enriquez to meet with a doctor who was to examine her and certify that she was female before being allowed to compete, something not required of anyone else in the competition. Maybe no one else was required to go through that because none of them were born as a male. I’m just guessing. Anyway, I wonder how the visit with the doctor went? At the same pageant, every other contestant was assigned a roommate except Enriquez. Again, maybe it was because she suffers from a mental illness that makes her think he’s really a woman and he has a penis. My head now hurts.
Enriquez told KVVU-TV that instead of shying away from her transgenderism and based on her past experiences she has decided to make “awareness of the transgender community” her pageant platform. So while other beauty pageant contestants give speeches about world peace, feeding the hungry, or climate change, Enriquez will talk about how wonderful it is to intrude on a contest where you don’t really, honestly, truthfully fit into the bathing suit if you get my drift.
Don’t get me wrong. I am sure Enriquez is a lovely person and admittedly is much better looking than a lot of very large leftist female activists who I’ve come across and gave me the stink eye at marches I’ve covered in the past, but I have to wonder when the world will come to grips and realize that we are enabling people who are suffering from a mental illness. The push for Wokeness is so bad now that I predict she will win any beauty contest she enters because of the fear of the Woke Supremacy canceling the judges or the pageants altogether if she doesn’t.
Fahrenheit 451 was the first full book I ever read. I’ll be honest. I only read it because of a computer game of the same title. As a young kid, the game was pretty cool, and when I heard it was named after a book that everyone else in the world knew about, I decided to see what the hubbub was all about. It bears a clever title in that 451 degrees Fahrenheit is the temperature that paper starts to burn. The book is about a dystopian future where the government bans all books so that the great unwashed won’t be able to read them. And they didn’t just ban books, they burned them so they no longer existed.
Amazon, arguably the world’s largest bookseller, has decided that it will no longer allow the sale of books that teach that transgenderism and other sexual identities or orientations make any claims that they are conditions caused by mental illness. Yet, they still allow for sale a book titled The GayBC’s listed as “A joyful celebration of LGBTQ+ vocabulary for kids of all ages!“
The bookseller announced the policy after Republican lawmakers asked the company why they pulled the sale of Ryan T. Anderson’s 2018 book, “When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Movement.”
That book, which sat on Amazon’s bestsellers list, is no longer available for purchase at Amazon at all, period, full stop.
But you can still buy a copy of Adolf Hitler’s Main Kampf where the socialist dictator plotted and planned to take over the world on Amazon either through the company or through third-party sellers.
In a letter sent to Republican Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Mike Braun (R-IN), Amazon responded by saying, “As a bookseller, we provide our customers with access to a variety of viewpoints, including books that some customers may find objectionable.”
“Amazon works hard to ensure customers have a great shopping experience, and access to the widest and most diverse cross-section of written and spoken word in retail today,” the letter continued. “We reserve the right not to sell certain content. All retailers make decisions about what selection they choose to offer, as do we.”
The letter added, “As to your specific question about ‘When Harry Became Sally,’ we have chosen not to sell books that frame LGBTQ+ identity as a mental illness.” This even though homosexuality was listed by the American Psychiatric Association, the largest psychiatric organization in the world, as a mental disorder up until the politicians got involved, the same type of politicians who today demand that we trust the science, and without any “science” involved they just reversed their stance on the issue back in 2012. It’s when you read their statement saying “We will no longer insist on a label of sickness for individuals who insist that they are well and demonstrate no generalized impairment in social effectiveness,” followed by claiming the APA supports “civil rights legislation at local, state, and federal levels that would ensure homosexual citizens the same protections now guaranteed to others,” that you realize it was a purely political reason for the 180-degree turn. If Schizophrenia suddenly because very popular in pop culture these clowns would more-than-likely do a 180 on that too.
The author took to social media to discuss Amazon’s crazy move [pun intended].
“Amazon has finally responded. Everyone agrees that gender dysphoria is a serious condition that causes great suffering. There is a debate, however, which Amazon is seeking to shut down, about how best to treat patients who experience gender dysphoria.”
Don’t forget folks, gender dysphoria is listed in the Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), a manual published by the American Psychiatric Association to diagnose mental conditions.
He followed up with another tweet.
“Gender dysphoria,” Anderson explained, “is listed in the APA’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, which Amazon sells. So the real deciding factor seems to be whether you endorse hormones and surgery as the proper treatment or counseling.”
“Amazon appears to have never read my book, but relied on hit pieces. As I pointed out before: ‘Please quote the passage where I ‘call them mentally ill.’ You can’t quote that passage because it doesn’t exist.”
Jeffrey Trachtenberg, of the Wall Street Journal, said the bookseller’s decision comes as “the nation’s largest tech platforms are under increased scrutiny regarding the decisions they make over which content is acceptable.”
It sounds like the insane asylum patients are complaining so much to politicians and corporations that the corporate board rooms fear political influence that could harm their bottom line so they take the easy way out and say “screw you” to the 60% of the people who buy their stuff because the Democrats are running the show now. That, and because the leftist tech tyrants agree to be the de facto government dishing out punishments to those who dare go up against the Woke Supremacy.
“The senators, in their letter dated February 24, characterized Amazon’s decision to remove the book as a signal ‘to conservative Americans that their views are not welcome on its platforms,'” Trachtenberg wrote.
I was sent a link to a post on Twitter that shows a video of what appears to be a 4 or 5-year-old boy who is sitting on a woman’s lap as the woman is reading an interactive children’s book with him while going through the alphabet. Nothing wrong with that, right? Except, instead of learning his ABC’s he’s being taught his GayBC’s. Wait, what?
A picture/word book titled The GayBC’s was written by Matt Webb, a gay graphic designer by trade, teaches LGBTQ vocabulary with illustrations and poems to bring gay teaching to readers ages 4 through 8 so that they can be able to “discuss identity with their loved ones.”
In the book, young children can learn the alphabet to ensure parents are having a dialogue with their children about their sexual orientation at a very young age. Here are some of the alphabet words the book uses.
A is for Ally
B is for Bi
C is for Coming Out
G is for Gay. “It’s a word that implies you’re a girl who likes girls, or a guy who likes guys.”
I is for Intersex. “Some are born with the parts of both a boy and a girl; bodies are works of art!”
P is for Pan. “You connect with a vibe. No matter the gender, it’s about what’s inside.”
Q is for Queer
T is for Trans.” It’s a brave step to take, to live as the gender you know is innate.”
Remember, the book claims to target children from the age of 4 through 8.
When I saw this, I did a little research on the book, and when I finished I wanted to tear my hair out. This is child abuse. This is a horrible idea. Radical leftists always target their indoctrination programs at very young children, because they know it’s much easier to screw up a person’s mind with their radical norms while they are young and impressionable, and much more difficult when kids hit their teens and begin to realize it’s just indoctrination bullschtein.
It’s one thing to indoctrinate school students into being good little socialists and lovers of big government but it’s a completely different ball of wax to teach different forms of sexuality to 4-year-old children. I don’t want them teaching heterosexuality to children. They’re still innocent. Why can’t the Woke Supremacy just let kids be kids? Why do they have to damage them for their causes?
Throughout the ages when schools feel students should learn about the birds and the bees they sent a letter home to the parents and the parents decided how to explain it. I did this with both of my sons. Nobody wants to do it, but it’s a clinical discussion about how human beings propagate the species. There’s no sexuality discussion about LGBTQ that propagates the species. Yes, it’s an important distinction that matters.
The author of this scholarly tome says that he learned of his gender identity and sexual orientation at the age of 5. He said he was in a karate class in his hometown of McMinnville, Tennessee when he figured out that he was different from his brothers.
“I didn’t know what to do, I didn’t know what was happening, and I remember being very scared and vulnerable,” he said. “I couldn’t tell anybody and ask, ‘What’s this mean?’”
When he grew up, instead of keeping his self-described trauma in his personal mental lockbox he went and created a book that will teach children, most of whom will not have ever in their young and innocent lives considered their sexual orientation, to possibly cause trauma in their lives. People like this are sick. They believe they’re doing the children a favor by teaching them things they may have themselves had problems with at a very young age not realizing they are introducing innocent babes to a world they can’t possibly understand.
Just to make it clear to the freaks at Media Matters who may be reading this, I am not condemning gay people or any of the LGBTQ adults who go about living their lives however they want. God bless them and may they be as happy as anyone else. I’m talking about adults who prey on children to sexualize, politicize and damage them because of some need they have to fulfill in order to work out their own psychological problems. I’m sorry, but in our society, we don’t teach very young children about sexuality, any kind of sexuality. Let them be kids.
Lindsay Amer of the YouTube channel Queer Kid Stuff which provides educational LGBTQ+ videos for all ages thinks the book should be in families’ libraries. Families without young children in the house, no problem. I’m trying to be reasonable here. Adults can do whatever they want, but please let your children alone.
On Thursday, the Democrat-controlled House passed a bill called the Equality Act, extensive legislation that would add sexual orientation and transgender rights to be protected classes under the 1964 Civil Rights Act. It’s also not Constitutional, because Congress doesn’t have the authority under the Constitution to create such a bill, but since when has that stopped members from either party from doing whatever they want? By the way, Congress did not have the authority to pass the 1964 Civil Rights Act either, but if you point that out the leftists immediately accuse you of being a racist, because identity politics is more important than Constitutional law.
We have to divorce ourselves from whatever bill is in contention and look at the Constitutional process. Each time we ignore the Constitution we weaken it and this is how we have arrived at the point where most things passed by Congress and signed into law are not Constitutional.
The legislation, passed in a vote of 224-206, would amend federal civil rights laws to add protections for LGBTQ Americans in employment, education, housing, credit, jury service, etc. President Biden has called the bill “a critical step toward ensuring that America lives up to our foundational values of equality and freedom for all.” I don’t see why any of this was necessary. We already have laws for all of these things as protections for all Americans. LGBTQ people already have the right to sue if they are discriminated against. This isn’t civil rights, because they already have them as codified in law. These are “special rights” so that the Woke Supremacy feels good about themselves. This same bill was passed by the House two years ago and was blocked by a Republican Senate, but now the Democrats control both houses of Congress so they can push through anything they want, so long as every Democrat in the Senate votes in goose step with the Supremacy. The question now will the Democrats get rid of the filibuster because as it is right now they need 60 votes to be able to bring the bill up for a vote. Now you know why the Democrats keep pushing the idea that Republican members of Congress were involved in some insurrection by white nationalists on January 6. They are trying to shame GOP members of Congress into going along with any legislation they want to push. So far the only sucker I see who is falling for that is Liz Cheney (R-WY).
GOP members of Congress, being the only sane ones left, have fought against the bill on the grounds that it endangers biological women’s safety in that it states in the bill that “an individual shall not be denied access to a shared facility, including a restroom, a locker room, and a dressing room, that is in accordance with the individual’s gender identity.”
This bill also harms religious freedom, because it regulates religious nonprofits and it stipulates that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act doesn’t apply to claims under the Equality Act, even though it does. In fact, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act was created precisely because of tyrannical attacks like this against religious freedoms.
“We have passed it in the House before — the Equality Act, H.R. 5, to end discrimination against the LGBTQ community,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Thursday morning before the bill’s passing. “This time, it will be not only passed in the House but on a path to a signing at the White House. We’re very excited about that.”
Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) was the only Republican senator who co-sponsored the Equality Act back in 2019 and has said she will not co-sponsor the legislation this time around because of problems she has found in the bill.
On Thursday, Collins said to the Washington Blade, “There were certain provisions of the Equality Act which needed revision,” She added, “Unfortunately the commitments that were made to me were not [given] last year.” Of course not, because Democrats always lie about things they say they will do in the future for your considerations now.
Other Republicans have issues with the bill. For example, Representative Andrew Glyde (R-GA) has argued that the legislation would violate women’s right to privacy and safety in locker rooms and showers. What Glyde isn’t understanding is that these nutjobs in the Democratic Party, the so-called party of science, actually believe that men who put on dresses and identify as women are in reality real women. Therefore, they do not see a problem with men who still have penises wearing a dress being inside areas of privacy for women. It’s totally ridiculous, but here we are.
Glyde also said he has problems with provisions in the bill on things like cross-sex hormone medical treatments and surgeries for minors because he considers that child abuse. Any sane person would.
