‘Catholic university recently denied the formation of a conservative group’s chapter on campus due to statements from its national organization that there are only two sexes, male and female.
Saint Mary’s University located in Notre Dame, Indiana denied an application to formally recognize a Turning Point USA chapter.
Two administrators told student Claire Bettag that the “style and content of Turning Point USA’s messaging around LGBTQ+ issues do not align with the mission and values of Saint Mary’s” in an email reviewed by The College Fix.’https://www.thecollegefix.com/catholic-university-denies-group-for-belief-in-two-sexes/
‘Biology matters, though apparently not if you are a man who *feels* like a woman, then biology just has to take a back seat.
The American Red Cross has revealed they will now allow males who pretend to be women to donate their blood, even if they have been having sex with other males.
Under normal circumstances, males who engage in sexual activity with other males are asked to wait three months before donating blood, a requirement that will be waived for men who self-ID as women.
According to the American Red Cross website, the organization says it “understand[s] that there is a difference between biological sex and gender,” but goes on to clarify that the Red Cross is following the recommendations of the FDA to determine donor eligibility on the basis of self-declared sex, as opposed to biological sex of the potential donors.
This change would allow a homosexual or bisexual male to present at the clinic and self-describe himself as “female” or “trans” and be exempted from the 3-month deferral typically associated with males who actively engage in sexual activity with other males. This may pose a risk to both the Red Cross staff, the donor, and the viability of blood donations.
Gay men have previously been limited in giving blood due to higher rates of sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV. Usually men who have sex with other men must wait 3 months before donating.
A member of the Reduxx team called the Red Cross Donor and Client Support Center posing as a biological male who identified as a woman to check eligibility requirements. When the agent was asked if a person “assigned male at birth” who was actively having sex with other biological males was able to donate blood, he responded that so long as the potential donor self-declared their sex as “female,” they would be allowed.
“If you identify as a female… if you answer the question as a female, anything that’s going to come up– regarding the transgenderism… is not going to apply,” the agent stated, after consulting with his managerial team for several minutes.
Similarly under the rules, females who identify as “men” and who have sex with biological males or other females who identify as “men” are ineligible and subject to the 3-month deferral.
Males who identify as “female” and have sex with other males who identify as “female” are eligible to donate under the lesbian guidelines.
The policy of self-identification applies to all forms of blood, plasma, and platelet donation, which contradicts The Red Cross’ weight and height requirements for donors on the basis of sex. Regular donors are also allowed to have information on their sex changed upon verbal confirmation, which the Red Cross perplexingly claims is for the sake of “donor safety and accuracy of records.” Individuals do not need to declare that they are transgender.
The three month waiting period is so blood screening can pick up evidence of sexually transmitted diseases.
Binary spokeswoman Kirralie Smith said the policy puts lives at risk.
“It is utterly absurd to change a policy that is dependent on biological factors,” she said.
“Blood donated by men who have sex with men is at risk. This is not unjustly discriminatory, it is not a matter of feelings, stereotypes, or perception. It is a serious medical issue that could cause devastation to recipients if the blood is contaminated.
“This policy highlights the incredible lunacy people are willing to sink to in an effort to appease extremists.
“Men are not female and never can be, regardless of their costume, drug taking or surgery.”’https://www.binary.org.au/the_american_red_cross_policy_that_denies_biological_reality?
Gay, homosexual, lesbian or any of the multitude of binary categories is never mentioned in the Creator’s manual! Sodomites are mentioned along with male and female. Romans Chapter One tells us all we need to know concerning what the Creator thinks of sex outside the relationship of one man and one woman. However, in spite of what the Creator’s manual tells us, society continues down the road of self-destruction!
‘One of the benefits of the political upheaval of the past several years is that no one is surprised anymore when the legacy media act more like partisan activists than objective journalists. In fact, such bias is what most of the public has come to expect from the news industry and is also why the vast majority of people disapprove of it.
Still, the lengths to which the media are willing to go to advance their own ideological agenda can sometimes shock even the most weathered press watchers.
The best example of this from the past year is the media’s deliberate distortion of Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Act, which is more commonly known as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. The very fact that the bill is known as such proves my point. Leftist activists didn’t like that Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) was cracking down on the gender ideology agenda in public education. They came up with a dishonest nickname for the bill, and the media made sure it stuck.
Every single mainstream outlet, from Time magazine to the Washington Post, referred to this legislation as the Don’t Say Gay bill repeatedly, even after Florida officials made it clear that the bill in no way prevented students or teachers from saying the word “gay.” The word doesn’t appear in the text of the bill once.’https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/restoring-america/patriotism-unity/year-in-review-the-medias-biggest-lie-in-2022
‘A Norwegian woman is under investigation by authorities in Norway and is facing criminal charges and possible prison time for saying that men cannot be lesbians.
If charged and convicted, artist Tonje Gjevjon, who is herself a lesbian, could face up to three years in prison.
On November 17, Gjevjon was told that she was being investigated by the police over allegations of “hate speech.”
She came under investigation over a Facebook post that criticized men who said they were lesbians.
Gjevjon has faced intense pushback for publicly standing up for women’s rights.
In her post, she also criticized transgender activists who try to prosecute women for refusing to comply with “woke” gender ideology.
“It’s just as impossible for men to become lesbian as it is for men to become pregnant,” Gjevjon wrote.
“Men are men regardless of their sexual fetishes.”
In the post, translated to English by Facebook, Gjevjon wrote, “men with fetishes have been protected as a vulnerable minority through the foolish and constructed concept of gender identity is koko. [sic]”
Gjevjon said she posted her Facebook message on purpose to bring attention to Norway’s hate speech law.
The law was changed in 2020 when the country’s parliament voted to outlaw speech against people who identify as transgender.
Gjevjon is also not the first to be confronted with charges over saying men cannot be lesbians or mothers.
Last year, Gjevjon asked Anette Trettebergstuen, a politician in the Labour Party, what she was going to do to safeguard the rights of women and girls.
She also asked if she thought that men could be lesbians.
“I believe it is absolutely necessary to place biological sex as the basis in all contexts where sex has legal, cultural, or practical relevance, and that equating sex with gender identity has harmful, discriminatory consequences for women and girls – especially lesbians,” Gjevjon said in her question.
“Will the Equality Minister take action to ensure that lesbian women’s human rights are safeguarded, by making it clear that there are no lesbians with penises, that males cannot be lesbians regardless of their gender identity, and by tidying up the mess of the harmful gender policies left behind by the previous government?” She asked.
Trettebergstuen replied, “I do not share an understanding of reality where the only two biological sexes are to be understood as sex.
“Gender identity is also important.”
Gjevjon has also described being pushed out of the art community over her views, even though she was a prominent member of the music and art establishment for over 15 years.
“I have stated that women are female, that lesbians do not have penises, that children should not be responsible for decisions they do not have the capacity to understand the scope of, and that no-platforming is harmful to democracy,” Gjevjon wrote in Klassekampen, a Norwegian outlet.
“For these opinions, I have been canceled several times.
“I was not prepared for the extent of how queer organizations, politicians, and activists would demonize a lesbian artist who was not in step.
“Trans activists contact people I work with, portraying me as hateful and warning against being associated with me,” she said.’
‘Good morning! Hard to believe Christmas is less than two weeks away! And The Iowa Standard is officially in its fifth year of existence now.
Much of the last week or so was spent dissecting the Respect for Marriage Act. Sen. Joni Ernst has been censured or formally condemned by at least seven Republican county central committees. That number is expected to increase. We’ll publish a story today where Ernst essentially plays the victim and says people are upset at her because they haven’t read the bill.
Ernst is asking us to trust our religious liberty to Sen. Susan Collins and Sen. Chuck Schumer. No thanks. Actually, just no.
She wants us to ignore the warnings from respected conservative advocacy groups such as the Family Research Council, Liberty Counsel, Alliance Defending Freedom and others. She wants us to ignore conservative senators who have warned against the bill. And she wants us to ignore conservative House Republicans who, unlike Ashley Hinson and Mariannette Miller-Meeks, didn’t support it.
She wants us to ignore the fact that passing the Respect for Marriage Act filled Nancy Pelosi’s heart. And it was celebrated by Joe Biden.
If all those people are happy about something, conservatives should be concerned about it.
So, all of us who were told to “vote red” to “save America” since about October — do you feel like you saved America? Republicans hold every congressional office in Iowa (once Zach Nunn joins the House in January), yet 66 percent of the Iowa congressional delegation either did support the Respect for Marriage Act or said they would have (Nunn).
I think we were played. We’re being told by Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition to be thankful for Sen. Chuck Grassley and Rep. Randy Feenstra who voted against it. Well, Grassley said he supports federal recognition of same-sex marriage and may have voted for it if the religious liberty protections were stronger. Feenstra hasn’t issued any statement at all.
How embarrassing and insulting to Iowa’s grassroots conservatives. And don’t look for the Republican Party of Iowa to stand up for conservatism. They’re more concerned with defining “censure” and the process of censure than they are the fact 4 of the 6 congressional Republicans from Iowa just voted to redefine marriage against the wishes of the RPI platform.
What a mess.
There is good news, though. Ernst is feeling the heat. Newsmax cited The Iowa Standard in an article about her vote. Iowa media did as well. She was asked about being censured.
All of that happened because of our combined efforts. It happened because seven courageous, conservative county central committees had the spine to do what is right and we were fortunate to amplify their voice.’https://theiowastandard.com/
‘Cambridge Dictionary has been accused of giving in to “woke activists” by changing its definition of “woman” to be inclusive of those who identify as transgender.
The updated definition for the word “woman” now states in its secondary characterization that the term describes “an adult who lives and identifies as female, though they may have been said to have a different sex at birth.”’https://www.faithwire.com/2022/12/13/cambridge-dictionary-bows-to-woke-activists-changes-definition-of-woman/?inid=5f29ebc0-7f5b-eb11-b823-005056af0da1
As someone born in the 1940’s I truly believe what is being done to our young people today should be against the law and those pushing this agenda should be jailed.
