A Mythological Woman & His Hirsute Dojigger
By Laurie Higgins   |   07.20.19
The "trans" cult argues that biological sex is unimportant and always in every context and activity subordinate to "gender identity," which is constituted by subjective, internal feelings about one's "maleness" or "femaleness." In the "trans" mythology, "gender identity" has nothing to do with biological sex. Therefore, a human with XY chromosomes and a natal penis can be a woman if he so conceives himself to be.

Planned Parenthood and the “Trans” Cult
By Laurie Higgins   |   07.18.19
As many have heard, Planned Feticide (known euphemistically as Planned Parenthood) just gave the heave-ho to Dr. Leana Wen as its president. One of the reasons for the unceremonious dumping of Wen after only 8 months on the job is reportedly that she was disinclined to use politically correct language for people who pretend to be the sex they are not and never can be. Perhaps recently elected member of the Planned Parenthood National Board of Directors "Meghan" Stabler—who was elected six months after Wen’s appointment—had a little sumpin' sumpin' to do with that.

The NEA’s Code of Ethics says, among other things, this:

Facts, Feeling and Fearmongering: The State of Climate Change
07.13.19
“Facts don’t care for your feelings.” Ben Shapiro’s frequent use of it in debates has made this statement popular. Facts, as commonly understood, are objectively true, and indicators of the reality around us. They are solid and unassailable. Feelings are subjective and constantly subject to change. This is important, regardless of what one thinks of Shapiro’s politics.
