To “Trans” Cultists, What IS Maleness or Femaleness?
By Laurie Higgins   |   08.11.17
Earlier this week, I mentioned that I had submitted a commentary on the “trans” ideology to the Chicago Tribune on July 31 that was rejected. I noted this only because several days after I submitted this commentary, Trib reporter Kim Janssen wrote an article about my article that urges Christians to exit public schools in part because public schools promote the irrational, incoherent, and destructive “trans” ideology. Here is that rejected commentary...

By Joshua Denton   |   08.10.17
The Army recently released a new training presentation for troops regarding their interactions with transgender soldiers, and guidelines regarding gender transition in the military.

Rejection of God Leads to Rejection of Science (and Common Sense)
By David E. Smith   |   08.01.17
Christians who hold to historic and traditional teachings of the Bible believe that God created us from the beginning “male and female” (Genesis 5:2; Matthew 19:4; Mark 10:6). Biology and physiology empirically affirm that there are only two genders. Christians who hold to this theologically orthodox and scientific view believe that “gender-confirmation” surgery, hormone-blockers and cross-dressing damage humans.

By Laurie Higgins   |   07.26.17
One of the movements in our movement-cluttered, chaotic world is the “period-positive movement” which seeks to destigmatize menstruation. And one of the ways period-positivists seek to destigmatize menstruation is to make it more “inclusive.”

By Laurie Higgins   |   07.17.17
A recent article in Teen Vogue magazine titled “Anal Sex; What You Need to Know” has justifiably generated outrage among decent people and generated outrage at the outrage among indecent people. Sex writer, sex educator, blogger, podcaster, and pervert 26-year-old Gigi Engle offered a detailed explanation for teens on how to engage in sodomy in a decidedly pro-sodomy essay.
The “Trans” Ideology Damages Children
By Laurie Higgins   |   07.13.17
In our mad, mad, mad, mad world, Canadian mother Kori Doty hopes to raise her child, named Searyl Atli but called Sea, in such a way that baby Sea’s objective biological sex will have no meaning relative to Sea’s “gender identity.” Doty’s dream for her child is that he or she be free to “self determine their own gender” at some undetermined time in the future. And by “they” Doty means Sea. Although, Doty can’t yet...
Lawmakers Avoid Discussions of First Principles
By Laurie Higgins   |   06.30.17
Recently Ben Shapiro, writing for National Review, exposed a fundamental failure of lawmakers that partisan debates conceal. Partisan debates conceal that fundamental, first-principle policy arguments about governance are avoided like the proverbial plague by politicians of all political stripes.
