NY Times: Anatomy Does Not Determine Gender, Experts Say.

NY Times: Anatomy Does Not Determine Gender, Experts Say.

Me: Uhm. Experts in what?


Defining gender as a condition determined strictly by a person’s genitals is based on a notion that doctors and scientists abandoned long ago as oversimplified and often medically meaningless.
Researchers who have studied gender issues and provided health care to people who do not fit the typical M/F pigeonholes said that the Trump administration’s latest plan to define gender goes beyond the limits of scientific knowledge.
“The idea that a person’s sex is determined by their anatomy at birth is not true, and we’ve known that it’s not true for decades,” said Dr. Joshua D. Safer, an endocrinologist and executive director of the Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery at Mount Sinai Health System in New York. He is also president of the United States Professional Association of Transgender Health.

But exactly what does determine gender identity — a person’s powerful, core knowledge of who they are — is not so clear.

“We know that there is a significant, durable biological underpinning to gender identity,” Dr. Safer said. “What we don’t know are all of the biological factors at play that explain gender identity. As far as we in the mainstream biological-medical community understand it in 2018, it is hard-wired, it is biological, it is not entirely hormonal, and we do not have identified genes, so we cannot specifically say it is genetic.”
So, in the end, you'll just have to trust your betters to decide. They always know best. Just ask the New York Times.


Witches and Mobs are at least on the same side this time

I read recently that there are more people in America practicing wiccan-ism than there are Presbyterians. Hey, to me, going from Presbyterian to wiccan seems like a lateral move but...whatever.

Now, it seems a coven of witches is gathering to hex Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Anyone else starting to think Pope Benedict XVI was right about Harry Potter?

I guess the interesting thing to note here is that unlike the Middle Ages the witches and the mobs are on the same side.

NY Post:

The Witches of Bushwick upheld their promise to “hex” Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Saturday night, carving his name into a black candle, dousing it in “Revenge Oil” and then setting it on fire in a private ceremony in the Brooklyn neighborhood.

The goal was “exposing the fact that he’s a crook,” explained witch Dakota Bracciale, 29. “I mean if his d–k shrivels up and falls off, great, but I don’t think that’s something realistic to hope for.”

Witch Lindsay Von Wener, 26, said hexes work through the power of positive — or negative — suggestion, sort of as a matter of “witch-ful” thinking.
“If you put it out there, then it’ll happen,” she said. “If you watch Oprah, then you know how to do witchcraft.”


100 Years Ago, Hollywood Made an Anti-Abortion Movie

There haven't been many since Where Are My Children

I keep reading that Hollywood wanted nothing to do with the new movie Gosnell because abortion is such a divisive topic. That, of course, is complete manure. They want nothing to do with pro-life movies because they hate pro-lifers.

If they truly just wanted to stay away from a controversial topic, why make movies like Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Dirty Dancing, Cider House Rules as well as countless television shows including Maude, Dawson's Creek, Party of Five, and most recently Scandal, all of which featured abortions?

Interestingly, a little over 100 years ago, Hollywood created a movie starring Tyrone Power Sr. in which he played Richard Walton, a district attorney, who was very pro-eugenics. In the silent film, he is trying a case against Dr. Homer, who has been arrested for distributing 'indecent' birth control literature that includes lines shown on screen saying, “When only those children who are wanted are born the race will conquer the evils that weigh it down.” (Sound familiar?)

Went to see Gosnell?

One funny thing about going to see "Gosnell." Before the movie, there's a preview for a movie about what a hero Ruth Vader Ginsburg is and everyone was looking around confused. One old guy asked his wife to check the tickets to make sure they were in the right theater.

The movie itself is horrifying, factual, well acted and a must-see for pro-lifers. For me, the scene with Janine Turner as an abortionist, is the scene that will stick with me.

10 Ways the Mafia Isn't like the Abortion Industry

Pope Francis recently compared the abortion industry to the mafia. If you ask me, that's not really being fair to the mafia though.

Here’s one difference: When the mafia kills, it’s illegal.

Here are 10 ways the mafia is different than the abortion industry.

1) The mafia doesn’t receive millions in government funding.

2) The mafia kills to protects its business interests. For Planned Parenthood, killing is the business interest.

3) The mafia claims that killing is only one percent of what they do.

4) Mafiosi go to jail for not paying taxes, Planned Parenthood doesn’t pay taxes.

Why Planned Parenthood Supports Birth Control

If birth control really curbed pregnancy rates, why would Planned Parenthood, which depends on abortion money, support free birth control for everyone?

The point is continuing to disconnect sex from pregnancy in the minds of people, actions from consequences. And birth control helps that along and will actually increase the need for abortions.

Good News! Google Exec Believes in Hell!!!

Good news: A Google Executive believes in Hell.

Bad News: he thinks you're going there.

A Google executive named David Hogue recently deleted his tweet about the GOP's confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

"You are finished, @GOP. You polished the final nail for your own coffins. F#$%. YOU. ALL. TO. HELL," tweeted Hogue, adding "I hope the last images burned into your slimy, evil, treasonous retinas are millions of women laughing and clapping and celebrating as your souls descend into the flames."

Whoa bro, force your faith on others much?

Ok, yeah sure this guy's a little in your face with his belief in Hell and exactly who belongs there but maybe it's refreshing in a way. I mean, how many Christians are out there willing to discuss H-E-L-L anymore? This guy's not only talking about the existence of Hell but sending people there!

I for one am glad to see a resurgence of Christianity among leftists. Why, just last month future failed Senate candidate Chelsea Clinton spoke at length about God and about things that are un-Christian like trying to overturn Roe v. Wade. I know I know this is a bit of a faux pas because Pope Francis warned us against talking about abortion too much but I'll forgive her this one time.

Yeah, sure you might not agree with every jot and tittle of her Christianity but hey we're dialoguing. Isn't that the important thing?

And let's not forget that while Nancy Pelosi won't allow prayer in schools, she calls on THE BIG MAN to do her political bidding in Congress. In a recent press conference while the Kavanaugh debacle was going down, Pelosi said, "I'm ever hopeful of an intervention, prayerful of a divine intervention," she said in order to prevent that "beer-drinking altar boy" from getting to the court.

I know all about the separation of Church and state but hey, sometimes getting God to do your political bidding is what's necessary. I for one am glad to see this resurgence of public Christianity. You see, you don't have to just watch EWTN anymore to get your daily dose of theology. You can just turn on MSNBC and CNN.

Anti-Kavanaugh Protest Canceled for Hating on Columbus

Headline: Anti-Kavanaugh protest postponed ‘in recognition of Indigenous People’s Day.

Me: Come on people, cant we hate on Columbus and Kavanaugh at the same time? #multitasking

Campus Reform:

An anti-Justice Brett Kavanaugh protest at Scripps College in California was postponed after student organizers realized the event was scheduled on Columbus Day or "Indigenous People's Day."

“We want to deeply apologize for scheduling this event on the same day as the 2nd annual Indigenous People’s Day," student organizers wrote. "Monday is a day for indigenous and non-indigenous allies to stand in solidarity and acknowledge the genocidal mission system that enslaved and killed 80 [percent] of Natives living on this land. Additionally, we stand in solidarity with the 5,100 missing and murdered indigenous people."
This is comical but it's also scary as hell. Because here you have these crazy leftists attacking Kavanaugh but guess what...they're deathly afraid of crazy leftists. Because they know in their hearts that anyone who gets in the way of leftism is just a speed bump on the road to utopia.

In short, they're not in control of this hate missile. They don't know where it's going either. But like Slim Pickens they're content to ride it all the way down.

Kavanaugh Hires Four Women as Clerks! Boof! Reactions are Priceless

The newly sworn in Justice Kavanaugh just hired his four law clerks, all women. That's some mad trolling right there. Boof!

The left responds with appropriate lunacy.

And here's the kicker:


Cardinal Oullet Calls Vigano's Claims against Pope "Blasphemous."

A top Vatican cardinal issued a scathing rebuke Sunday of the ambassador who accused Pope Francis of covering up the sexual misconduct of a prominent American cardinal, saying his claims were a “blasphemous” political hit job.

Hmmm. I don't think that word means what you think it means.

A top Vatican cardinal issued a scathing rebuke Sunday of the ambassador who accused Pope Francis of covering up the sexual misconduct of a prominent American cardinal, saying his claims were a “blasphemous” political hit job.
Six weeks after Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano threw the papacy into turmoil over his claims about ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, the head of the Vatican’s bishops office said there was no evidence in his files backing Vigano’s claims that Francis annulled any canonical sanctions against McCarrick...

Ouellet said he understood that Vigano might be bitter at the way his own career ended, a reference to Vigano’s disappointment — expressed in leaked letters in 2012 — that he was never made a cardinal as he claimed he had been promised. But Ouellet said he couldn’t believe Vigano had arrived at such a “monstrous” and “blasphemous” conclusion, given that Francis had nothing to do with McCarrick’s career rise.

“You cannot end your priestly life in an open and scandalous rebellion that inflicts a painful wound” on the church and divides its people, he ended his letter. “Come out of your hiding place, repent for your rebellion and return to better feelings toward the Holy Father rather than fostering hostility against him.”
