Hollyweird’s Charlize Theron says her child came out as “trans” at three years old

A three-year-old has NO CONCEPT of who they are let alone the capacity to understand what “gender identity” means. Bad parenting to let children lead their life by their feeeeeeeeelings instead of facts.

From NBC News: Academy Award-winner Charlize Theron reportedly shared that her oldest child is transgender.

Her daughter Jackson, 7, was assigned male at birth but revealed she’s a girl four years ago, Theron said, according to an interview published Thursday in the Daily Mail.

“I thought she was a boy, too,” Theron, 43, reportedly said in the interview. “Until she looked at me at 3 years old and said, ‘I am not a boy!’”

The actress has two children: Jackson and August, 4.

NBC News was unable to confirm the veracity of the Daily Mail article. (Since when does NBC care about facts? Never stopped them from reporting baloney on President Trump.)

Theron has a legacy of LGBTQ activism, particularly when it comes to advocating for marriage equality. In 2009, she announced on “The View” that she would not marry her then-boyfriend, Stuart Townsend, until everyone had the right to marry in the United States.

“I think it would be exactly the same if we were married, but for me to go through that kind of ceremony, because I have so many friends who are gays and lesbians who would so badly want to get married, that I wouldn’t be able to sleep with myself,” she said at the time.

Read the whole story here.

Apparently Theron said, “They were born who they are and exactly where in the world both of them get to find themselves as they grow up, and who they want to be, is not for me to decide.”

Maryland students outraged after gun raffle held to pay for graduation party

From MyFoxChicago: Students at Brunswick High School in Maryland are upset that a raffle for guns was used to support a party for the graduating seniors.

The Frederick News-Post reports the Safe and Sane program at Brunswick High School raffled off guns in February. Tickets were $20 each for prizes that included hunting rifles and shotguns.

Chasidy Plunkard is a volunteer parent coordinator who organized the raffle. She says volunteers sold about 250 of the 1,000 available tickets. Seven winning tickets were selected.

Safe and Sane sponsors an alcohol-free party after graduation for high school seniors. Students said the decision to hold the raffle while promoting safety was counterintuitive.

Plunkard says the fundraiser was handled legally, including not selling tickets to people under 18 years old and requiring background checks.

According to the article from the Frederick News-Post, kids don’t want guns associated with schools. From their article:

“I understand that not all guns kill people,” Donoghue said. “And I understand that the raffle may have had background checks in place. But I think just the idea of selling weapons when you’re talking about high schoolers and you’re talking about high schooler safety is ridiculous and is completely ignoring the bigger picture.

Abigail Rohmiller, a junior, said she was concerned with the fundraiser because it associates guns with her school. The association is troubling to her given the number of high-profile school shootings, such as the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in February 2018, she said.

“At the same time we’re having to go through active shooter drills in school, we’re selling guns to raise money,” Rohmiller said. “What’s the message here? … There are tons of different ways to fundraise, and I don’t think we need to bring deadly weapons into the mix.”

Shall we talk about the bigger picture?

FACT: There were MUTIPLE system failures which led to the Parkland shooting: Broward Coward’s failure to properly respond, failing radio system, mismanagement of school safety funds, and – most noticeably – allowing the shooter to get away with criminal activities. Had those criminal activities been reported, he would not have been allowed to legally purchase a gun.

FACT: Many shootings have been committed by kids under 18 – also known as prohibited possessors.

FACT: Firearms are not allowed on school properties.

FACT: Mass public shootings keep occurring in gun-free zones: 97.8% of attacks since 1950. (Data from the Crime Prevention Research Center.)

I understand why kids may be concerned that guns are associated with schools. The main reason for that is because criminals do not follow the law. And that progressives do not want to face reality.

Maybe if school resource officers and teachers were armed, criminals would think twice about committing a school shooting as they would associate schools with guns that are used for safety, protection and self defense.

Boston College student says babies who survive an abortion should die

From Daily Mail: Video footage has emerged of a college student arguing that if a baby is born alive after a botched abortion, the child should be denied healthcare and allowed to die.

Pro-life activist Kristan Hawkins was speaking at Boston College, a private Jesuit-run university, last month when the pro-choice female student made the remark during a Q&A session.

‘They were performing an abortion,’ the unidentified student said of the hypothetical scenario. ‘So, before that, they’ve already determined that it’s not a baby.’

The remark comes amid renewed debate over late-term abortion, and echoes January comments made by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam on the subject of babies born alive during botched abortions.

The exchange came during a Q&A session on March 19, when Hawkins was speaking at the invitation of Boston College’s Pro-Life Club. Hawkins is the president of Students for Life of America and has toured several universities speaking on the theme of ‘Lies Feminists Tell’.

‘Do you think that children that are apprehended at the border that are in U.S. government care…do you think babies who are going to die should be resuscitated and given care?’ Hawkins asked the student. ‘Yes,’ the student replied.

‘Okay. Do you believe that a baby who is born alive during an abortion at Planned Parenthood should get care?’ Hawkins followed up. The student replied, ‘No.’

When Hawkins pressed the student on the difference between the two scenarios, the student said that a baby that survived an abortion was ‘not a baby’.

Although most of the students who asked questions during the Q&A criticized Hawkins, with one even rudely asking if she had ever had an orgasm, some were supportive of her pro-life stance, according to an account in student newspaper The Heights.

In recent months, the abortion debate has been renewed over speculation that a changing Supreme Court could overturn the 1973 Roe v Wade decision, reverting jurisdiction over abortion laws back to individual states.

Ohio this week became the latest state to enact a ‘heartbeat’ bill, which bans abortions after a fetal heartbeat can be detected by ultrasound.

Anti-abortion activists hope that court challenges to these new state laws will go before the Supreme Court and establish a new precedent.

Meanwhile, New York in January passed a sweeping law legalizing abortion up until the moment of birth, and allowing non-doctors to perform abortions.

Around the same time, Virginia Governor Northam, a Democrat, defended a similar bill in his state. Northam, a pediatric doctor, described a hypothetical situation where a severely deformed newborn infant could be left to die.

He said that if a woman were to desire an abortion as she’s going into labor, the baby would be delivered and then ‘resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue’ between doctors and the mother.

Late-term abortions are an emotionally charged subject on all sides of the issue, although they are relatively rare.

A 2014 CDC study found that 1.3 per cent of abortions in the U.S. occur during or after the 21st week of gestation.

NY demorats gave $27 million to children of illegal aliens who receive preferen$e over children of US military

That’s not a typo in my headline. NY demorats give $27 million taxpayer dollars to children of illegal aliens. Children of US military? They get $2.7 million allocated to their education.

As reported by the NY Post: Democrats set aside $27 million in tuition assistance for the children of undocumented immigrants in the new state budget — but wouldn’t add hundreds of thousands of dollars to expand a similar program for kids of deceased and disabled veterans.

A bill that has twice passed the state Senate — but never made it through the Assembly — would have added funding to a program that provides free tuition, room and board at any SUNY or CUNY college to children, spouses and financial dependents of “fallen soldiers” who died, became severely disabled or were classified as missing in action while serving in the military after 1990.

Such a program already exists and serves 145 students at a cost of $2.7 million — but only for relatives and dependents of vets who served in combat zones. The Assembly Higher Education Committee voted 15-11 against allocating more funds to the program as part of the state budget.

Assemblywoman Deborah Glick (D-Manhattan), who chairs the committee, said budget constraints weighed against the program expansion, which she estimated would have cost several hundred thousand dollars.

“We will make every effort to ensure going forward, we have some additional resources allocated to the program so that as an entitlement, it is not falling short of the needs of our military families,” she said.

But State Sen. Robert Ortt (R-Niagara), a sponsor of the measure, said the Assembly’s failure to act sends a distressing signal to military families.

“Assemblywoman Glick should be ashamed of herself,” said Ortt. “We set aside $27 million dollars for college for people that are here illegally… Apparently $2.7 million is all that the families of soldiers who are killed, get. If you’re a child of a fallen solider, you do not rank as high and you know that by the money.”

Glick called the criticism a “cheap shot” on Twitter. “The bill-though laudable-had a budgetary impact which the committee routinely doesn’t consider post-budget. We did promise to see funding in the future [that] considers potential additional eligible individuals. Cheap shot,” she wrote.

Assemblywoman Judy Griffin (D-L.I), one of four Assembly Democrats who voted in favor of the bill, said it should be a priority next year.

“I voted for the bill because I think it’s important, especially after that FDNY firefighter was killed in Afghanistan, so heartbreaking. But I voted yes knowing the bill would be held because it was a tough budget year and as the chairwoman said, there just wasn’t the funding in the budget. But now we know for next year, [so] we will make it a priority and hopefully pass it.”

Gun control, Chiraq style: 6 shot at baby shower (including 2 kids); witnesses not cooperating with investigators

From MyFoxChicago: (Sun-Times Media Wire) – At least six people were wounded, including an 8-year-old boy and a 10-year-old girl, in a shooting Saturday evening on the South Side that happened while a family was celebrating the upcoming birth of a child.

Gunfire erupted at 6:21 p.m. at a gathering in the 6300 block of South Seeley in the Englewood neighborhood, according to Chicago police. Two men in dark clothing approached the family gathering and opened fire before fleeing on foot, police said.

Both children were taken to Comer Children’s Hospital where their conditions are critical but stable, authorities said. The boy was struck in his back and chest, and the girl was shot in her shin, police said.

A 29-year-old woman was shot in her shoulder and chest, while a 42-year-old man was shot twice in his hip, police said. They were taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where the woman was in critical condition, and the man’s condition was stabilized.

The gunfire also hit a 23-year-old man in his foot and a 28-year-old man in the shoulder, police said. They were both taken to Holy Cross Hospital, where their conditions were stabilized. The older man was later transferred to Mount Sinai Hospital.

Witnesses were not cooperating with investigators, but based on the victim’s profiles police believe the shooting may have been in retaliation from an earlier incident in the neighborhood, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said. Detectives were reviewing footage from nearby surveillance cameras but had little physical evidence to work with at the scene.

The family was celebrating the upcoming birth of a child, authorities said.

The mother and grandmother of the wounded 8-year-old boy were seen waiting outside Comer, both of them visibly distressed. The mother, whose shirt was stained with blood, was crying out for her child. “He’s just a baby, he’s just a baby,” the mother said, as tears flowed down her face. The grandmother told reporters the boy was in surgery.

Meanwhile, in another shooting, a 13-year-old boy was seriously wounded about 8:20 p.m. in the 1200 block of West 73rd. Two males ran out of a vacant lot and fired shots into a car where the boy was sitting, striking him in the hip, police said. The car drove to 69th and Racine where paramedics were called. The boy’s condition was stabilized at Comer.

Speaking to reporters outside Comer, community activist Andrew Holmes called for prayers for the young victims and urged any witnesses to talk to police. “We’re starting the spring and summer off wrong,” Holmes said.

Can you pass this short financial quiz meant for teens?

A survey of 1,000 U.S. teens ages 13-18 released this week by youth organization Junior Achievement USA and Citizens Bank found that:

  • About 1 in 3 teens don’t believe they’ll be financially independent from their parents by age 30.
  •  44% think they’ll be saving for retirement by 30.
  • 43% think they’ll have paid off student loans by age 30.

In fact, a survey by the Federal Reserve Board found that young people (18-35) have less saved than in the past:

  • In 1995, the median net worth of Americans age 18 to 35 was $18,800.
  • In 2016, the median net worth of millennials (18-35) was $11,100.

The National Financial Educators Council (NFEC) has an 8-question financial quiz for young people. The Financial Foundation Test measures whether a young person, who’s leaving the family home to be on their own, possesses the knowledge to make entry level financial decisions, including: purchasing a car, renting a home, college affordability, credit cards, loan terms and associate payments.

To take the quiz, click here.

Warning: You’ll be asked for your name and email address. I gave them a fake name and fake email address. LOL

According to NFEC, of the 40,433 people who’d taken the test as of the writing of this post:

  • About 58% passed; 42% failed.
  • The overall average score was 67.74%.
  • The average scores of various age groups are:
    • 10-14 years of age: 56%
    • 15-18 years of age: 62%
    • 19-24 years of age: 70%
    • 25-35 years of age: 76%
    • 36-50 years of age: 78%
    • 51+ years of age: 78%
