In the UK, drag queens used in nurseries to “help 2-year-olds learn about LBGT issues”

Indoctrinating young UK children…just being good little commies.

From Daily Mirror: Drag queens are being sent into nurseries to help children ’embrace their individuality’ and learn about ‘ LGBT tolerance’.

Call centre worker Tom Canham is the brainchild behind Drag Queen Story Time (DQST), which education bosses claim will help children ‘see people who defy rigid gender restrictions’.

The 25-year-old launched the project in May and set up a Crowdfunder campaign in the summer to buy books and pay for DBS checks.

During the winter DQST is holding sessions at seven nurseries run by the London Early Years Foundation. If successful (I am QUITE CONFIDENT that it will be successful, wink, wink), the project will be rolled out across all the nursery’s 37 sites.

The programme is for two and three year olds who have not yet developed any discriminations.

He told The Bristol Post : “For me the project is about drag queens providing fun and inclusive reading for children about issues around misogyny, homophobia, racism, LGBTQ and gender fluidity in a way which they can understand.

Racism, homophobia, misogyny and the like are all learnt behaviours – we aren’t born with any form of hatred, you get taught it over time. And if projects like these can go some small way to helping prevent or curtail that, then it can only be a good thing.”

The 25-year-old was inspired to launch the project after reading about a similar American scheme called ‘Drag Queen Story Hour’.

He said: “I saw a tweet from the producers of the drag TV show, ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ about ‘Drag Queen Story Hour’ and replied saying ‘why can’t we have something like this in the UK? To my amazement they replied and suggested I set up my own group, and it went from there really.”

In the summer Mr. Canham recruited 30 drag queens to take part in the project, and said he was getting more requests to take part on a daily basis.

Mr. Canham has a selection of books for the sessions entitled: ‘And Tango Makes Three’, ‘My Princess Boy’ and ‘Red: A Crayon’s Story’.

While most people have responded positively to the scheme, the 25-year-old has encountered harsh criticism and even abuse.

Child psychotherapist Dilys Daws claimed the scheme could ‘blind impressionable children of two and three to one of the most basic facts of human existence’.

This week she told the Daily Mail : “There’s this idea that’s sweeping the country that being transgender is an “ordinary situation”. It’s getting so much publicity that it’s getting children thinking that they might be transgender, when it otherwise wouldn’t have occurred to them.”

But Mr. Canham has said the critisism does not bother him. “I have been called a paedophile for wanting to set up ‘Drag Queen Story Time’ and accused of trying to incite young children in to being gay,” he said.

“But thankfully that is only one in 1,000 people. I try to think of it as the negativity is what we are trying to change, so in that way it spurs me on – and being a gay man I have had to deal with lots of horrible comments throughout my life, so it really is water off a ducks back.”

Isn’t this special: Justin Trudeau is raising his kids to be feminists

Questions for Justin:

From what I’ve seen in the world, women face unequal obstacles every day because the left’s definition of feminism is enabling men and women to silence, demean and belittle people of both genders. Their quest for power is silencing vulnerable voices every day.

From Marie Claire (by Justin Trudeau): I am in politics because every day, I get to work to make the world a little better—for my kids, and for yours. I’m proud of the dedicated work our team is doing to make Canada more open, more inclusive, more just—and gender equal. But some of the most important work I do is not as a political leader, but as a parent. Every day, at home, I have the astonishing and humbling opportunity—together with my wife Sophie—to nurture empathy, compassion, self-love, and a keen sense of justice in our three kids.

I am so exceptionally proud of my daughter Ella-Grace. She’s growing up kind, super-smart, a passionate debater, open to the world around her. I love Ella, and I worry—because as a father, son, husband, and citizen, I witness the unequal obstacles women and girls face every day. It’s 2017, yet in Canada and around the world, women and girls still face violence, discrimination, stereotypes that limit them, and unequal opportunities that keep them from achieving their dreams. It is maddening to me that my brilliant, compassionate daughter will grow up in a world where, despite everything she is as a person, there will still be people who won’t take her voice seriously, who will write her off—simply because of her gender.

I can—and do—work every day to shift those inequalities, even incrementally. But I also know that the most powerful medicine will come from Ella herself. Sophie and I can’t be there with Ella at every hard moment of her life—to protect her when someone makes her feel small, to advocate for her when someone isn’t listening—even if we wish we could. (Parents will relate.) So the best thing we can do is to help Ella learn, unshakeably, that she is enough, exactly as she is. That she has immense power, and intrinsic worth, which no one can ever take away from her. That she has a strong voice, which she can use, and trust.

That means raising her feminist. Full stop.

I’m eternally lucky to have an amazing partner in that project. Sophie continues to inspire and challenge me, and a few years ago, she helped me reach a turning point. I was talking about teaching Ella that she can be anything she wants to be. Sophie said, “That’s great—but how are you raising your sons to be strong advocates for women and girls, too?”

Gender equality is not only an issue for women and girls. All of us benefit when women and girls have the same opportunities as men and boys—and it’s on all of us to make that a reality. Our sons have the power and the responsibility to change our culture of sexism, and I want Xavier and Hadrien—when he’s a little older—to understand that deeply. But I want, too, to help them grow into empathetic young people and adults, strong allies who walk through the world with openness, love, and a fierce attachment to justice. I want my sons to escape the pressure to be a particular kind of masculine that is so damaging to men and to the people around them. I want them to be comfortable being themselves, and being feminists—who stand up for what’s right, and who can look themselves in the eye with pride.

Feminism is not just the belief that men and women are equal. It’s the knowledge that when we are all equal, all of us are more free. It’s a relentless commitment to look for ourselves in each other, because that’s how we start to build a world where everyone is treated with respect and recognition. And it’s the unwavering conviction that all people have the same rights and freedoms—that my rights are your rights, and it is only when your rights are fully protected that mine are, too.

That world doesn’t exist yet. But it can be built—by people who have a strong sense of justice and empathy, who stand up for the rights of others, and who seek out their own unique ways of creating more inclusive communities.

That’s the world we want to live in. That’s the world we want our kids to live in. To raise our kids feminist is to recognize that they ALL have a part to play to build that world. To raise our kids feminist is to honor their future, because they have the responsibility—and the power—to shape it for the better.

#LoveTrumpsHate: Homosexual coffee shop owner shouts obscenities at pro-life group, kicks them out

Video NSFW.

From Breitbart (by Katherine Rodgriguez): A gay coffee shop owner in Seattle kicked a Christian pro-life group out of his coffee shop because he felt offended by their presence, according to video footage of the incident.

The Washington Times reports that the group, called Abolish Human Abortion, decided to order drinks at Seattle’s Bedlam Coffee after passing out pro-life pamphlets in the area when the owner angrily asked the group to leave.

“I’m gay. You have to leave,” owner Ben Borgman said in the Facebook video.

“Are you denying us service?” activist Caytie Davis asked. “I am. Yeah,” Borgman replied.

The group had been handing out pamphlets about the Bible, sin, and abortion to Seattle residents and one of the baristas let Borgman know what he was doing, according to the Blaze.

Borgman did not take the news well, and further confronted the group. “This is offensive to me. I own the place. I have the right to be offended,” he said.

The group tried to explain to him that they did not leave any pamphlets in the cafe, but Borgman continued to berate the group. “There’s nothing you can say. This is you and I don’t want these people in this place,” he said.

Borgman then asked activist Jonathan Sutherland whether he would “tolerate” a sex act between two men.

“Can you tolerate my presence? Really?” the owner asked. “If I go get my boyfriend and fk him in the a right here you’re going to tolerate that? Are you going to tolerate it?”

“That would be your choice,” Sutherland replied.

“Answer my fing question!” Borgman yelled back. “No, you’re going to sit right here and fing watch it! Leave, all of you! Tell all your f**king friends don’t come here!”

As the group prepared to leave, one of the women in the group told Borgman, “Just know that Christ can save you from that lifestyle.”

“Yeah, I like a,” the owner spat. “I’m not going to be saved by anything. I’d fk Christ in the a**. Okay? He’s hot.”

Another woman then told him that she would pray for him.

The group’s Facebook video has gone viral, racking up 447,000 views and nearly 3,000 shares.

Insane: Knowingly exposing others to HIV will no longer be a felony in California

Liberals not only are gravely mentally-ill, their disorder now threatens to endanger others.

Patrick McGreevy reports for the Los Angeles Times that on Friday, Oct. 6, 2017, California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill, SB 239, which reduces from a felony to a misdemeanor the crime of knowingly exposing a sexual partner to HIV without disclosing the infection.

The bill also applies to those who give blood without telling the blood bank that they are HIV-positive. (See DCG’s post here.)

HIV has been the only communicable disease for which exposure is a felony under California law.

The authors of the bill, state Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) and Assemblyman Todd Gloria (D-San Diego), argue that modern medicine allows those with HIV to live longer lives and nearly eliminates the possibility of transmission, and that the current law may convince people not to be tested for HIV, because without a test they cannot be charged with a felony if they expose a partner to the infection.

Note: Both Scott Wiener and Todd Gloria are openly “gay”.

Wiener said in a statement:

“Today California took a major step toward treating HIV as a public health issue, instead of treating people living with HIV as criminals. HIV should be treated like all other serious infectious diseases, and that’s what SB 239 does.

We are going to end new HIV infections, and we will do so not by threatening people with state prison time, but rather by getting people to test and providing them access to care.”

Supporters of the bill also claim women engaging in prostitution are disproportionately targeted with criminal charges, even in cases where the infection is not transmitted.

Republican lawmakers including Sen. Joel Anderson of Alpine voted against the bill, arguing it puts the public at risk.

Sen. Anderson said during the floor debate:

“I’m of the mind that if you purposefully inflict another with a disease that alters their lifestyle the rest of their life, puts them on a regimen of medications to maintain any kind of normalcy, it should be a felony. It’s absolutely crazy to me that we should go light on this.”

Brown declined to comment on his approval of SB 239.

The Left’s Pronoun Tyranny: First-grader sent to principal’s office for ‘misgendering’ another student

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees Americans’ right to free speech.

But the one-party State of California has gone whole hog in contravening that right.

Recently, California’s State Senate approved SB 219: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Long-Term Care Facility Resident’s Bill of Rights, which will make it a crime for nursing homes to use the “wrong” gender pronoun. If the State Assembly approves the bill, it will be law.

Now, California state government’s madness has spread to Rocklin Academy, a charter school in Rocklin, Placer County in Northern California, where a first grader was terrorized when she was sent to the principal’s office after she accidentally “misgendered” a classmate.

Recently, Rocklin Academy was roiled by controversy after a kindergarten teacher led an in-class discussion on transgenderism that included a “gender reveal” for a 5-year-old boy who was “transitioning” to a little girl. (See DCG’s post “California kindergarten teacher leads ‘transgender’ discussion in class to introduce child ‘transitioning‘”.)

Parents were furious because they were not informed in advance and were not given the chance to opt their children from the classroom “transgender” propaganda. However, school leaders informed the parents they were not allowed to opt-out and that the state did not require the school to notify parents.

Todd Starnes reports for Fox News, Aug. 25, 2017, that the latest incident occurred during the first week of school when a first grader came across a classmate on the playground. She called the student by his given name, unaware that the boy now imagines himself to be a girl.

Karen England of California-based public policy group Capitol Resource Institute said:

“This innocent little first grader sees a classmate, calls him by the name she knew him last year and the boy reports it to a teacher. The little girl gets in trouble on the playground and then gets called out of class to the principal’s office.”

The first grader was investigated by the principal to determine whether or not she had bullied the transgender child by calling him by his original name. After about an hour it was determined the little girl had made an honest mistake and she was not punished or reprimanded.

But the girl is terribly traumatized by the incident. England said the girl “came home from school upset and crying – saying, ‘Mommy, I got in trouble at school today.’” The little girl’s mother, who asked not to be identified, immediately contacted the school to find out what had happened. She was told that whenever there is a pronoun mishap with this biological boy who now claims to be a girl — the school must investigate.

Capitol Resource Institute provided FoxNews with a letter the mother wrote, expressing her extreme concern over how the situation was handled:

“I stressed over and over with the principal that I am all for protecting the rights of [the transgender child], but my children have rights as well. It makes me sad that my daughter felt like she was punished for trying to be kind to the kid.”

Capitol Resource Institute specializes in strengthening families and is working with a number of parents at Rocklin Academy upset about the LGBT agenda being forced on their children.

Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a nationally-known conservative Christian law firm, is investigating the playground incident as well as the classroom lesson on gender identity. An ADF spokesman said:

“Our focus is on ensuring that every student’s privacy is protected and that parental rights, including the right to be notified that before children are exposed to gender identity teaching, are respected by the school officials.”

Rocklin Superintendent Robin Stout

Todd Starnes reached out to Rocklin Academy numerous times, but they did not return his phonecalls.

Starnes concludes:

“What’s happening at Rocklin Academy is an example of how schools have become indoctrination grounds for the LGBT agenda. And the only way to stop the indoctrination is for moms and dads to take a stand. It may be unpleasant and it may be uncomfortable, but we’ve got to stand up to these activist bullies.”

Report confirms government hostility to Christianity spiked under Obama

When Obama was elected POTUS, he promised to “fundamentally transform” America.

And transform he sure did — to the worse.

A new report confirms what many of us suspect — that the 8 years of Obama in the White House were hostile to Christianity, which spurred and encouraged anti-Christian forces in America, as seen in a whopping 76% increase in religious freedom violations since 2014.  (Read the report in PDF format here.)

Although the 66-page Family Research Council report is entitled Hostility to Religion: The Growing Threat to Religious Liberty in America, the title really is a misnomer because it is not hostility to any and all religions. The surge in government hostility is directed not at Islam or Judaism or Buddhism or Satanism, but at one particular religion — Christianity. By logical inference and implication, that makes Barack Hussein Obama an anti-Christ.

That the 76% increase since 2014 in hostility to religion is specifically against Christians and Christianity is made clear in Todd Starnes’ Fox News report of June 29, 2017, in which he provides the following examples of government hostility to “religion”:

  • An 11-year-old student in Hattiesburg, Mississippi was penalized for mentioning Jesus in a Christmas poetry assignment.
  • A Christian acapella group at James Madison University was told they could not perform “Mary Did You Know” because it was religious. They were directed to only sing secular songs.
  • An Ohio library banned a Christian group from meeting to discuss natural marriage unless the group also included supports of same-sex marriage.
  • An Oklahoma bank was forced to remove religious Christmas decorations under orders from the Federal Reserve.
  • Allstate Insurance Company fired a Christian staffer for allegedly using a company laptop to write a column against homosexuality. The company said the column violated its diversity standards.
  • In 2011, the class president at Hampton High School in Tennessee wanted to deliver a prayer at graduation. The principal issued an edict that any child who attempted to pray would be stopped, escorted from the building by police and arrested.
  • Principal Frank Lay and Athletic Director Robert Freedom were charged with criminal contempt because they prayed over a meal. The pair was later found not guilty of violating an injunction banning the promotion of religious events at school.
  • San Diego firefighters were threatened with disciplinary action if they refused to participate in a gay pride parade. The firefighters were subjected to verbal abuse and sexual gestures during the parade.
  • A woman who rented out rooms in her home was sued after she refused to rent to a same-sex couple.

Family Research Council (FRC) president Tony Perkins said:

“The recent spike in government driven religious hostility is sad, but not surprising, especially considering the Obama administration’s antagonism toward biblical Christianity. This report is designed to quantify the threat to our First freedom and to challenge Americans to use their God-given freedoms to protect these freedoms we enjoy as Americans.”

Travis Weber, FRC’s director of the Center for Religious Liberty, said he hopes the report will be a wakeup call for all people of faith:

“In a society like ours, we must be the guardians of our own freedom. Anyone who desires freedom in the future must take note of what these trends tell us about our freedom right now – relative to where we have come from – in order to protect freedom from going forward.”

Perkins said the hostility to religion Christianity report underscores the legitimacy of the actions taken by President Trump to end polices in federal agencies that “fan the flames of this religious intolerance.” Perkins points out that despite the increase in hostility, there is some good news in “the growing courage of Christians, especially young Christians, to defend both their faith and their freedoms.”

Unintended consequences: California’s travel ban may trip up intercollegiate athletic teams

unintended consequences

Way to punish the athletes and guarantee diminishing alumni donations. Brilliant move California…

From SF Gate: California’s newly expanded ban on state-funded travel to states that discriminate against LGBT people could trip up intercollegiate athletic teams in the coming years — not only by restricting where they may play, but how they tap new recruits.

As of Thursday, state employees — including those at the University of California and California State University — are banned from traveling on the public dime to eight states. The shunned states often appear on college teams’ travel schedules. They are: Alabama, Texas, Kansas, North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi and South Dakota.

“In terms of recruiting, under current California law our coaches would be restricted from using state funds to travel to affected states,” says a statement issued Friday by the Cal Athletics Department.

On Friday, a day after state Attorney General Xavier Becerra expanded the list from four to eight states, his office told The Chronicle it had received a request for a legal opinion on whether the ban applies to “athletic team staffs” at UC and CSU. His office did not respond when asked who had made the request.

Each of the states in the ban has enacted a discriminatory law since June 26, 2015, according to Becerra, such as preventing adoptions and foster care by lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender people (South Dakota and Alabama) or allowing school clubs to restrict membership on that basis (Kentucky). In Texas, a law that passed June 15 prohibits the state from “taking adverse action” against religious caregivers, which critics say gives them too much power over the welfare of LGBT children.

California’s travel ban took effect in January and specifically includes the two university systems. But it also exempts them from the ban to fulfill any athletic contracts they entered into with schools in the affected states before Jan. 1. That helps many major college athletic teams — for now — because they set their travel schedules with other schools sometimes years in advance.

But the exemption does not apply to collegiate postseason contests, where teams that do well could find they are headed for one of the states in question.

Eight sports are scheduled to have their top-tier NCAA regionals or championships in states affected by the travel ban within a year: Texas, Alabama, Kentucky and North Carolina. The most notable is the men’s Final Four basketball championship, to be held in San Antonio.

The others are men’s and women’s cross country, women’s gymnastics, men’s and women’s tennis, and men’s and women’s indoor track. Championships for lower-tier schools, including many in the CSU system, also are scheduled for some of the states included in the ban.

When California’s ban took effect in January, the Cal athletic department issued a statement saying: “Our intent is to support our student-athletes in their right to participate in NCAA postseason competition should they be assigned to a restricted state.”

But it’s not clear how they could do that, short of raising private donations to support not only travel costs, but also salaries for coaches and staff, and potentially insurance.

Meanwhile, Cal had been in preliminary talks for a men’s basketball series with the University of Kansas in January, when the travel ban that included Kansas took effect. “Cal got back to us and told us the state ban would prevent it,” said Jim Marchiony, a spokesman for KU athletics.

On Friday, Cal issued a new statement affirming its support of “equity, diversity and inclusion,” adding: “We have an obligation and firm commitment to remain compliant with California law.” The statement also said Cal will fulfill any contracts it signed with affected states before January.

Cal’s baseball team is signed on to play in the Frisco College Baseball Classic in March in Texas. The contract for the event, which features Texas A&M, Baylor and Louisiana Tech, was signed two years ago, former Bears head coach David Esquer said.

At California State University, several campuses have major sports teams, including Cal State Fullerton, San Diego State, Long Beach State, Fresno State and San Jose State.

The news that Texas is now included in the travel ban has made some sports fans nervous at San Jose State, and Lawrence Fan, spokesman for campus athletics, has been fielding questions — mostly about whether the San Jose Spartans will be able to play its scheduled football game at the University of Texas in September. Fan tells them not to worry. The contract was signed in September.

Nevertheless, CSU is taking a close look at the expanded travel ban and will consult with the attorney general if needed, said Toni Molle, spokeswoman for systemwide Chancellor Timothy White. However, she said, “The CSU fully intends to comply with the law, and we will not be using any state funds to pay for travel expenses to any of the banned states.”

Ricardo Vazquez, a spokesman for UC, agreed. But he said, “There have been instances where UC sports teams or researchers attending conferences have used nonstate funds to travel to the states on the list.”

Vazquez did not reply when asked for examples.

At UCLA, spokeswoman Liza David said the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics receives no state funding, but said that UCLA is “committed to promoting and protecting equity, diversity and inclusion.”
