Slim Pickings

Trying to find something to write about is getting harder if I don’t want to write about politics and the military, it seems like the news is only filled with those stories.

The right-wing bigots are now attacking the children I wrote about their lies here and these are their latest lies.
These Transgender Children Say They’re Thriving. They Want to Help Others Do the Same.

For some, it would be their news media debut. Others have fought for transgender rights in their home states and were well acquainted with the press. But all had the same hope: to shift the conversation about transgender youth from one that dwells on bullying, suicide and murder, to one that focuses on positivity, through an online campaign called the GenderCool Project.

Soon after, she [Jen Grosshandler] created the GenderCool Project with Gearah Goldstein, a transgender woman who trains people on how to create gender-inclusive environments.

“Our mission is to just get rid of the stigmas and just live our lives,” said Nicole, one of the participants. “And that’s what everybody else is doing. So my question to the world is: ‘Why can’t we? Why should we not?’”

“We’re all diamonds. Being trans is just one face, one edge of the diamond,” Landon said. “But there is so much else that makes us diamonds. It’s not just a single sliver.”
So many people see us as one sided but like diamonds we have many facets.
The GenderCool Project is a call to action, Ms. Goldstein said. “What are you doing for the community? How are you using voices, how are you telling stories, how are you being inclusive?” As a transgender adult, she added, “I wish I had some positive messaging around when I was growing up.”
As we make great strides in equality so is the opposition in their spread of their hate and lies.
Growing body of research rejects transgender movement
The Washington Times

Is Caitlyn Jenner a woman? A growing body of research from scientists, philosophers and feminists says no.

The latest contribution to the debate is “When Harry Became Sally,” a just-released book by Heritage Foundation senior research fellow Ryan T. Anderson, who critiques the transgender movement on the grounds of metaphysics, medicine and public policy.

Contrary to the transgender movement’s central claim — that “gender identity” determines whether someone is a man, a woman or something else — Mr. Anderson said the only rationale for determining an organism’s sex is “by that organism’s organization with respect to sexual reproduction.”

“Apart from that, all you have are sex stereotypes,” Mr. Anderson said Wednesday at a Heritage Foundation gathering. “There’s no other objective standard for identifying the sex of an individual.”

Human beings are a “sexually dimorphic species,” with complementary reproductive systems that are either male or female, Mr. Anderson said. One’s sex is evident in DNA, can be tracked in the womb and manifests itself “in many of our bodily systems and organs all the way down to the molecular level.”
Okay first of all the Washington Times is owned by the Moonies, you remember them… they are a cult that was founded by Sun Myung Moon (Hence the name “Moonies”) their official name is the Unification Church.

They cherry pick research and twist it to fit their hate and bigotry, they say that DNA determines gender but that is only a half truth, they don’t mention all the other factors that disprove their warped ideas.

The Heritage Foundation is a bad spot for any credible scientist as well. For their information, transgender people exhibit anatomical differences as well as behavioral ones, and have done so from the beginning of civilization. They existed among the Native American population 300 years ago, for instance. I pity the people who listen to Professors like Anderson.
