If it’s considered OK to change from one sex identity to another, why are gay activists and their leftist friends fighting to shut down the opportunities for those with unwanted same sex attraction to affirm their desired sexual identity? Does type of coercive behavior identify the activist groups as cults?
Christopher Doyle is a counselor who works to resolves conflicts of sexual identity for individuals and their families. His clinical method is not to push people in a particular direction, but to work with them to achieve their own goals with respect to resolving their sexual identity. This, however, frequently involves helping those who have unwanted same sex attraction to resolve those issues, and become what is called “ex-gay”. His group conforms to the APA standard of treating same sex attraction as a variant of sexuality and not a mental illness. He notes that while his work is acceptable to most LGBT people, the activists vehemently oppose this, and are trying to shut down the availability of such counseling to young people and adults. This has included legislation in some states which forbid the kind of counseling to allow a person to become “ex-gay”.
As the LGBT extremist activists go over the top in trying to silence all who do not agree ethically with such things as same sex marriage, and to ostracize all same sex attracted people who would rather not live a homosexual lifestyle, Christopher Doyle notes that young people are starting to see the activist driven, sexual “equality” movement as false.
While the Shona Banda legal fundraiser remains up (as of 4-28-15) at GoFundMe, the fundraisers for Sweet Cakes and Barronelle Stutzman have been removed.
Shona Banda’s house was raided by cops, after her son made comments in favor of medical marijuana at his school in Kansas. Ms. Banda had moved to the state from Colorado where she had legal access to legal weed, said to be for a health condition. The raid produced some cannabis oil and 2 oz of the weed itself. Her son has been removed from the home, and felony charges are expected.
GoFundMe has given the excuse that the Sweet Cake’s fundraiser was suspended because they have been formally charged with a heinous crime [of not baking a cake for a same sex wedding]. This does not wash since the fundraiser was to benefit the mom and kids who were not present at the time of refusal. It is obvious: GoFundMe will raise legal defense for people found with illegal marijuana in the home, but not for the benefit of the family supported by the Sweet Cakes business, which is charged with not baking a cake for a same sex wedding.
Businesses will have to decide whether it is in their interest to kowtow to the extremists of the “Gaystapo”, or continue having wider access to commerce with the general population. Fundraisers and donors are encouraged to use a different venue until GoFundMe regains realistic business priorities.
You can head over to Mother Jonesif you want to watch the wailing and gnashing of teeth. Basically their author, Molly Redden, says that pro-lifers are conflating abortion and birth control, and want to ban both. It’s been fun to see the left finally admit (after years of being derided for their science illiteracy) that stopping implantation is a significant mechanism of birth control hormones.
Yours truly dropped the following comment. It’s an opportunity to inform leftists about the Plan B scam, and other problems with birth control hormones. Maybe it will stir the denizens of the left-cloud up a bit. You might want to join in the debate.
Unmentioned in this article is Ella (ulipristal acetate) the newly touted morning after pill which takes the place of Plan B, since the latter drug known to be ineffective for average sized American women. Ella is an analog of mifepristone (RU-486), and of course it shares the the same mechanisms of action.
The various mechanisms of birth control pills are not new. The only thing that has changed is that more people know about it, thanks to the coercive actions of employers and governments. The newer “development” is the religious belief that implantation confers a different status upon the growing human organism. Killing the human organism prior to implantation, according to this religion, is birth control, and after implantation, the act becomes worthy of the name, “abortion”.
This tired article pushes the meme that women are too incompetent to obtain their own birth control, and that Obama should provide it (with our money). One amusing fact is that Obama care provides only limited access, and many women are being forced to buy their preferred types of birth control hormones because their Obamacare does not “care” enough.
Meanwhile, women continue to troop through the hospitals with thromboembolic (blood clotting) events and various other untoward side effects of birth control hormones. They have been very tolerant of life threatening “medical care”, so this is all OK as far as the lefties are concerned.
Some day, women might get tired of routine chemical alterations to their bodies, and learn how to regulate their reproductive potential using natural, safer, more ethical, and more effective means.
Last summer, cops responded to a 911 call reporting Beaver Creek, Ohio shopper, John Crawford for “Playing With a Gun While Black”. To be sure, Crawford was without gun etiquette and safety skills, but he was not threatening his fellow shoppers. He had picked up an unloaded, air powered, pellet gun in Walmart and had been swinging it in the corner aisle, while talking on a cell phone. Most of the time the rifle is pointed towards the floor. At one point, the muzzle is seen pointing toward a back wall and shelf of pet food, but not at any other shoppers.
Once readers tour the Walmart video footage, they will admire the folks atTruth About Guns, who essentially got the gist of this story way back in August, before any of this info was available. John Crawford is mainly a victim of panicky, anti-gun propagandizing . It also appears that cops, all juiced up for a crazy shooter, did not give the guy much of a chance to respond appropriately to their presence before he was plugged by two of their bullets.
One 911 caller will be crawling into a hole after the unwarranted death of 22 year old Crawford, as well as the untimely demise of a 37 year old female shopper, who had a heart attack following the ensuing melee. (Naturally the left wing media is trying to tie the caller to the Tea Party.)
Given the sum total of the story, it’s not a surprise that the family of John Crawford would want to sue somebody. They would not be able to get much out of the 911 caller who touched off this whole disaster.
Lastly, people need to be exercising gun safety and etiquette along with their gun rights.
If pop culture is on your radar, the Breitbart.com deconstruction of a losing battle in Lena Dunham’s War on Women is worth your time.
Dunham’s best seller “Not That Kind of Girl”, contains a number of departures from reality, as well as a story of sexually abusing her own sister. Among these stories is a claim that she was raped by a prominent college republican.
Breitbart’s John Nolte has investigated the details of her story, and found it to be inaccurate, with the accused not matching Dunham’s descriptive highlights. The named individual, very unlike Dunham’s “memory” of her sex contact, has had to retain a lawyer, and disappear from social media. Memories of the famous Tawanna Brawley case come to mind.
Lena Dunham continues to allow the named individual, who says he never met her, who does not match her physical description, who did not graduate when she said he did, and who did not work where she said he did, to twist in the wind.
Dunham refused to press charges in a claimed case of rape. Either she is lying about rape altogether, or she has allowed a criminal (whose name and description do not match) to remain free to repeat his crimes. Both of these options harm other women.
Child abusers at the American Academy of Pediatrics are touting the IUD (indwelling coathanger) as the most effective form of birth control. Yep……. PEDIATRICS. And in light of this, remember that the medical records of 12 year olds in New York State can be held as private from the parents, and that there is no enforceable age of consent in the state of Washington.That’s one more salvo from the lefties in their never ending effort to groom girls as sex toys.
In another corner is Camille Paglia, offering another of her controversial opinions that will surely bunch up the panties of feminists on campus and off. Camille is the odd liberal who recognizes that there are certain evils that government and institutions can’t fix with their thought control. In her latest opinion piece, she reminds the girls that the need to be vigilant and practice self defense will never go away. The campus thought police will never be able to eradicate the evil propensities of sexual predators, says Camille, while once more reminding her readers that men and women are inherently different.
Controversial and litigious Attorney General, Eric Holder, had bit of a health scare back in March of this year, and, as the story goes, he was treated for elevated heart rate. He’s been talking for many months about resigning, and apparently now it’s official. How long will Mr. Holder remain in office? Obama has to find someone worse to replace him, so it might take awhile.
One of several important reasons a person should avoid affiliation with leftists is the inherent racism, sexism, and bigotry which is the basis for their social policies and personal functioning.
Leftists consider non-whites to be livestock, and treat them as such. The left desires to herd (to the cities), feed (food stamps EBT SNAP), house, provide health care (birth control and abortions), various ethic and racial groups, and keep them as voter stock.
The media serves as cover whenever the leftist racism bubbles to the surface in their words. Certainly they have been effective in training people to believe that the conservatives, who want everyone to be free to achieve self actualization, are the oppressors, while the paternalistic left, which pushes down or kills anyone who wants to work hard and achieve, is seen as benevolent. In fact, non-white conservatives, who respect the family, and oppose the herding of minorities, are said to be selling out their own people.
Here is your chance to see how the media covers up the racist gaffes ofHarry Reid, Gary King, and Joe Biden. Desperate leftie politicians, with possible dementia reducing their ability to filter speech, have been firing off offensive comments right and left, lately, and Brietbart.com has been cataloging the remarks and the lack of media response. Click the links to see: it’s still pre-civil-rights-era in the brains of the lefties.
Living in lie-cloud of the lamestream media has left many minority groups completely confused about who is REALLY holding them down in present day America.
