Lady Gaga talks importance of pronouns…

Lady Gaga and her Clinton buddies

Most folk I know don’t worry about using the correct pronouns. Yet if you live in a progressive utopia, you’ve got to worry about people’s feeeeeeeelings over biological facts.

Here in the south we’ve got a simple solution for progressive-mandated pronoun confusion: It’s called “y’all.”

From MSN: Lady Gaga was all about pride during her SiriusXM show at Harlem’s Apollo Theater Monday night.

In between songs, the “Born This Way” pop star gave a rousing speech about the importance of asking people’s pronouns and the necessity of gay pride. She also referenced transgender activist Marsha P. Johnson who was widely credited with throwing the first brick that sparked the Stonewall riots in 1969.

So it’s pride week. I wish it could exist 365 days of the year, but I’ll take a f–ing global week. Wow on Friday, the 50th anniversary of stonewall. Yeah, that was when our community said enough is enough,” Gaga said to cheers from the audience. “And all hail to so many including miss Marsha P. Johnson. What bravery, what courage. In the spirit of acceptance, the spirit of tolerance, the spirit of courage to be seen as you see yourself. I have learned so much over the years from all my fans. I feel so blessed, thank you for showing me and teaching me.”

“And I’ve learned something very important to those people now, and I wish to share this with everyone who’s listening, not just in this theater, but around the world,” she continued. “Ask the question: ‘What. is. your. pronoun.’ Because for a lot of people, it’s really hard, and their pronouns aren’t respected or they’re not asked, and for me I’ve grown and changed over the years in a lot of different ways — I’ve felt misunderstood in different ways. All our hardships are different; I don’t mean to compare; I just mean to say we’re in this together, and I’ve had a million reasons to want to give up, and sometimes if you’re lucky you just need one good reason to stick around.”

The concert was a special invitation-only performance for network subscribers and Pandora listeners and marks the first time the pop star has performed at the iconic venue. The show is also her first in New York City in almost two years.

So much for libs’ boycott: Chick-fil-A named America’s favorite restaurant chain for fourth year running

From NY Post: Once again, Chick-fil-A has been named America’s favorite restaurant based on customer satisfaction.

For the fourth year in a row, the fast-food chain topped the American Customer Satisfaction Index for limited-service restaurant chains. The index is based on results from nearly 23,000 consumers.

Chick-fil-A scored an 86 on the ASCI’s 100-point scale, which is down one point from last year, Forbes reports. For comparison, McDonald’s scored a 69, Burger King a 76 and KFC a 78. Taco Bell scored a 75.
Meanwhile, in regard to pizza places, Pizza Hut and Papa John’s both scored 80 points, with Domino’s at 79 and Little Caesars at just 77.

Chick-fil-A’s high ranking can be attributed to several factors, including the company’s famous customer service training. Business Insider reports that the restaurant was named America’s most polite chain in QSR Magazine’s annual report.

This isn’t the only piece of good news for Chick-fil-A. The chain is expected to become the third bestseller fast-food chain in America, Fox 5 reports. It’s expected to jump past Taco Bell, Burger King and Wendy’s, based on a study conducted by Kalinowski Equity Research.

Making this an even more impressive feat is the fact that Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays, while almost all of its competition is open seven days a week.

What happens when liberals call for a boycott of a fast-food chain…

Not every restaurant is seeing sales moving accordingly with its customer satisfaction score. Forbes reports that McDonald’s, which has a relatively low score in comparison, has reportedly had a strong performance this year. Meanwhile, Papa John’s high score has surprisingly coincided with a drop in sales.

Insanity: Democrat Julian Castro says biological males should have the right to have abortion

At last night’s first debate of Democratic aspirants to the presidency, Julian Castro, 44, the Obama administration’s HUD secretary took the Left’s insanity to a whole new level.

As reported by Gateway Pundit‘s Cristina Laila, Castro said:

“I believe in reproductive justice. Let’s just say that a woman, or let’s not forget, someone in the trans community — a trans-female, uh, is poor, doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t have the right to cover an abortion,”

A “trans-female” is a man who imagines himself to be female. In other words, a “trans-female” is a biological male — with XY chromosomes, and no eggs (ova), ovaries, or uterus. (I’m not referring to the artificial “uterus” of post-op trans-females, which are gouges or wounds.).

Hard to believe Castro is a graduate of Stanford University (1996) and Harvard Law School (2000).

Inclusiveness: ABC promoting 9-year-old boy dressed in drag as a message of “love”

Apparently dancing on stage as adult men throw money at this child is ‘spreading a message of love.’

People handing out money starts at 1:15 mark in above video.

From ABC 13: A 9-year-old living near Austin is spreading a message of love and inclusiveness as he performs as a drag queen. Keegan performs in drag as Kween KeeKee.

A third-grade teacher asked her class what they wanted to be when they grow up, and Keegan wrote in his memory book these words: “gender creative.”

Keegan said he can be himself when he’s wearing a dress. He also has a message for anyone who might struggle with their identity.

I want the world to know that you can be special, and you can be who you want to be,” Keegan said. “You can be a vegetarian, you can even be a veterinarian. You can be LGBTQ. You can be a drag queen, drag king.”

Keegan usually goes by the pronouns “he,” “him” and “his.” His family says Keegan has acceptance and support at a school in their conservative, Christian town outside Austin.

Guess what a Washington state public library is raffling for tweens during Pride Week…

Chest binders!

The Renton library, part of the King County public library system, held a Teen Pride event yesterday. From their web site:

Suitable for: Teens, Tweens

Type: Celebrations

Description:

A pride celebration designed by teens for teens!

Learn about local organizations here to support you! Free lunch and dinner! Fun crafts! Loads of activities! Open mic! Karaoke! Advice panels! Safer sex presentations! A drag show! Free swag! Free binder raffle!

The most rainbow filled fun you can imagine!

Chest binders are used by women who want to flatten their breasts. But there are medical risks associated with binders such as numbness, chafed skin, back pain, overheating and shortness of breath, among other things.

But never mind that…it’s the most rainbow filled fun you can imagine!

From our friends up north, eh: Parents say children can handle the “kink” at pride events

WARNING: The pictures that follow in this post are NSFW.

Remember their goal: Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

From HuffPo Canada: Each year, in the blazing sun of the Pride parade in Nelson, B.C., Pega Ren and her two young grandkids seek shade under their spinning rainbow parasols.

Ren, a semi-retired sex therapist, told HuffPost Canada the parasols were a magical find, and have come to symbolize the importance of this event for her family. Ren spoke joyfully of going to the dollar store, picking up all the rainbow ribbons and flags, decorating the roller skates and the stroller, and getting the costumes ready. “I can’t imagine a safer place for families to bring children,” she said of Pride.

A resounding chorus of voices — from within the queer community and not — would agree with this general sentiment about Pride parades and kids.

But in late May, one tweet turned it into a bigger conversation.
The post asked parade participants not to “sexualize” Pride and to leave their fetish and kink at home, for the sake of minors.

Anyone who has been to a parade has likely seen the procession of leather animal costumes, kinky costumes in every hue, and more skin than is normally exposed in public.

Although the post and account have since been deleted, the tweet got many people talking: How child-appropriate are Pride festivities? And why does this discussion hit a nerve for the LGBTQ+ community?

“At some level this has always been part of a much larger debate of what Pride is,” David Rayside, a retired politics and sexual diversity professor at the University of Toronto, told HuffPost Canada. “Pride has always had a kind of outrageous edge to it. And should we alter that? It is not the Santa Claus parade, and it never was. It shouldn’t be. It can’t be.”

That said, Rayside added, not only is it important for parents to bring their kids, but “I’ve seen thousands of kids at Pride, and I’ve never seen anyone fuss about what they see there.”

In fact, many parents would fuss at the thought of not bringing kids to these events.

“There is absolutely no reason not to take our kids to Pride — it’s a fun day, there are a lot of bubbles, rainbow streamers and enjoyable performances,” writer, educator, and publisher S. Bear Bergman told HuffPost Canada.

Plus, as queer parents, it’s one of their cultural festivals, added Bergman, who who attends Toronto Pride every year with his kids. “It’s their right as queer spawn. And as a parent, I might want to take my kids to Pride, because they might be lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer or two-spirit.”

Pride events are dynamic — with so many notes being played at once, a degree of dissonance can also be expected. No one knows this better than Parker Chapple, Executive Director of Calgary Pride.

As Canada’s fourth-largest and fastest growing Pride celebration, Calgary Pride works hard to be family-friendly, including events like Reading with Royalty and puppet-making.

When asked how they go about balancing the needs of various segments of the community, Chapple (who uses they/ them pronouns) laughed. “It’s hands-down one of the most challenging roles that any Pride director has,” they said.

The tensions around who and what “belongs” at Pride are heightened this year, as the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots stands in contrast to the consumer culture that has become synonymous with the season. After the June 1969 raid of New York gay bar the Stonewall Inn, a series of uprisings began, and sparked the gay liberation movement. The first Pride march took place one year after those raids.

“As an activist, I’ve always been acutely aware of what the parade and the festival is rooted in,” Chapple said.

And I’ve always passed that opportunity on to my children as a learning opportunity, so they can appreciate the work, the heartache, the celebration that our community put into gaining protection.”

Politics have a prominent place in Pride, Rayside said, but “it is also about outrage,” a time when some in the community express this “in ways that confront normal sensibilities.”

The freedom to do so is embedded within LGBTQ+ culture and history. These expressions are the most colourful during the parade.

Bergman defended these elements and their right to exist at a kid-friendly event. “First of all, nobody likes nakedness more than children,” Bergman said.

“On the list of things that I don’t want my children ever to be exposed to are: Compulsory heterosexuality, demonstrations of sexism, demonstrations of racism, demonstrations of ablism, violence. These are all way higher on the list than some homosexual’s tuchus.”

Putting on her sex therapist hat, Ren emphasized that Pride, from kink to nakedness, is an excellent opportunity for parents to do unbiased sex education. Bergman also pointed out that many children don’t even interpret most of what they’re seeing in a Pride parade as sexual, but rather as dress-up or fun. “Children benefit from seeing people loving one another, from seeing diversity and inclusion. Children suffer from seeing violence and fear, hatred and divisiveness,” Ren said.

“We found and built our tribe at these gatherings.”

Teacher kicks student from class for saying there are only two genders

“O’Brien held up his left hand, its back towards Winston, with the thumb hidden and the four fingers extended. ‘How many fingers am I holding up, Winston?’ ‘And if the party says that it is not four but five — then how many?'” – George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four

On June 14, 2019, someone on Reddit posted a link, since deleted, to a video on YouTube, with this claim: “My teacher kicked me out of class for saying there are only 2 genders“. Fortunately, I’d saved the link to the video before the Reddit poster deleted it.

The video appears to have been taken by the student of his private meeting with the teacher after the teacher had kicked the student out of the class for insisting that there are only two genders, male and female.

The video shows a visual of the teacher looming over the seated student. You can hear the back-and-forth argument between the two.

The video begins with the teacher responding to the student: “You’re entitled to your opinion…. It’s not very inclusive…. I’m sorry, but what you were saying was not very inclusive and this is an inclusive school.”

The student apparently had defended himself by saying he got it from a website.

Teacher: “I’m saying that website has an agenda.”

Student: “Well, that’s your opinion.”

Teacher: “That is my opinion and that is an opinion which is acceptable in the school….”

Student: “There are just two genders.”

Teacher: “You are choosing to make an issue of this…. Keep quiet! …You were clearly given an opportunity not to pursue it. You choose to do so.”

Student: “Yeah, because I think it’s –”

Teacher: “You choose to do so.”

Student: “I think it’s silly to have anything other than two genders –”

Teacher, raising his voice: “Please keep that opinion to your own house, thank you.”

Student: “So you get to put your opinion out in the classroom….”

Teacher: “I’m not putting my opinion out. I am stating what is national school authority policy. Okay?”

Student: “Of course it’s not scientic whatsoever.”

Teacher: “Not every policy is scientific, sorry. Not every policy is scientific, buddy.” The teacher again points out that the student wasn’t being “inclusive”.

Student: “You can’t come out here and say that I’m not being inclusive.”

Teacher: “I said what you just said [was not inclusive]….”

Student says, as the teacher turns away: “If you want to have a discussion about it, we could have done it — had a discussion. You don’t have to kick me out of class…. I state something I believe in and you kicked me out of class. For 30 minutes I’m waiting….”

Teacher: “You can make an official complaint.”

Student: “I’m not gonna make an official complaint….”

Teacher: “I know what you think and I know what the authority thinks, the authority’s point of view. I know very clear that we make no discrimination on the grounds of gender….”

Student: “I wasn’t making a discrimination, I’m simply saying there are two genders, male and female. Anything else is a personal identification.”

Teacher: “I’m sorry, but you chose to make an issue of making a point which is contrary to policy.”

Student: “You made the issue when you complained about the website, sir. And I responded by saying there are only two genders.”

Teacher: “Yeah, you can choose, but you’re making bad choices.”

Student says, as the teacher walks out of the room: “I’m making bad choices. Okay. Well, can I take my bag and go to the…. Okay, I’ll stay here. Thanks for wasting my time.”

The teacher turns back to say: “Buddy, I am not wasting my time, you are.”


No one knows where the video was taken. The teacher has a strong Scottish accent; the student also has one, though much less pronounced.

Assuming the school is in Scotland, when the teacher refers to “national school authority policy,” he probably means this — on May 8, 2019, the Scottish government issued the letter, “LGBT inclusive education: guidance to education authorities May 2019“. The letter says:

On 8 November 2018, Scottish Ministers accepted in full the recommendations of the LGBTI Inclusive Education Working Group. The 33 recommendations cover the professional learning of teachers, practice and guidance, school inspections and anti-bullying….

The Scottish Government, in partnership with COSLA, is committed, through the delivery of the recommendations, to a fully inclusive education for Scotland’s children and young people. Many of you will already be taking steps to achieve this aim. We are issuing this intermediate guidance note to help you build upon existing good practice, make clear that education should be LGBT inclusive and encourage you to work collegiately and in partnership with your learners to enhance LGBT inclusivity….

Signed:

John Swinney, Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills
Stephen McCabe, COSLA Children and Young People spokesperson

WTF does “education should be LGBT inclusive” mean? Does it mean acceding to every lunatic idea of the Left?

Someone on Twitter says the school in the video is Mearns Academy, a 6-year secondary (high) school in Laurencekirk, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. On its website is an emblem certifying the school as a “rights respecting school”:

By “rights” is meant the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child  (UNCRC). Among the “rights” stipulated in the UNCRC are the “right” of non-discrimination on the basis of gender, but also the “rights” of freedom of expression, and freedom of thought and belief.

Clearly, the school in the video and all schools in Scotland do not include a respect for students’ right to freedom of thought, belief and expression among its “national school authority policy”.

US embassies & ambassadors defy State Department by flying LGBT rainbow flag

Two days ago, I wrote a post on the disturbing phenomenon of Democrat elites undermining the United States’ rule of law by simply ignoring and defying whatever laws they choose. I gave two examples:

  1. Sanctuary states, cities and counties. For a list of those sanctuary jurisdictions, go here.
  2. 42 elected prosecutors — the chief law-enforcement officers of their states or counties — who signed a statement refusing to enforce any state laws restricting abortion. For their statement and a list of the names of the 11 attorney generals and 31 district attorneys, go here.

No doubt the reader knows of many other examples. This post is about a third example of lawless Democrats: U.S. diplomats’ disregard and outright defiance of the State Department’s directive not to display rainbow flags on flagpoles during Pride Month, which is June 2019.

Pride Month was formerly called Gay Pride Month. It’s been updated to LGBT Pride Month or just Pride Month. By the way, how come heterosexuals don’t have a Pride Month, not even a measley Pride Day?

The Obama administration had a blanket policy allowing U.S. Embassy buildings to fly the LGBT rainbow flag for pride celebrations as long as the rainbow flag was smaller and hung lower than the American flag.

However, three unnamed U.S. diplomats told NBC News that this year,  embassies were told they can display the pride flag in other places, including inside embassies, but that requests to fly it on the flagpole must be specifically approved by Washington. No approvals have been granted. The denials came from the office of the State Department’s undersecretary for management, Brian Bulatao, a longtime associate of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

At the same time, however, the Trump administration has announced a campaign to decriminalize homosexuality overseas and President Trump himself issued a tweet and formal statement celebrating Pride Month:

As we celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made to our great Nation, let us also stand in solidarity with the many LGBT people who live in dozens of countries worldwide that punish, imprison, or even execute individuals….

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 31, 2019

Talk about mixed signals.

The U.S. Embassy in Berlin is one of the embassies that have requested and been denied permission from the State Department to fly the pride flag on their flagpoles. The embassy’s leading diplomat, U.S. ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, the most senior openly homosexual in Trump’s administration, finds the State Department’s denial particularly jarring because Grenell is spearheading the administration’s push to end the criminalization of homosexuality in roughly 70 countries that still outlaw it. Grenell, has secured support for that campaign from both Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

Below is a list of U.S. Embassies that are defying the State Department by displaying the rainbow flag or other “pride” signs this month (NBC News; The Daily Signal):

  1. U.S. Embassy in Berlin, Germany: Ambassador Grenell said “a huge” “gay pride flag” will be hung on the side of the Embassy and his residence, and that “multiple” gay pride events will be hosted at the Embassy and the residence. Grenell himself will, once again and with pride, march in the Berlin Pride parade. Eembassy spokesman Joseph Giordono-Scholz said: “The pride flag will be on as many places as it can at the Embassy.”
  2. The embassy in Vienna flew a rainbow flag below the American flag on a pole hanging from the side of the embassy’s outer wall, as shown on its website.
  3. In Seoul, South Korea, a large rainbow banner is displayed on the side of the U.S. Embassy building.
  4. In Chennai, India, rainbow flags are prominently displayed on the sides of the U.S. Consulate buildings for Pride Month.
  5. The embassy in New Delhi, India has decorated its building with rainbow lights for the month.
  6. The U.S. Embassy in Santiago, Chile, raised the rainbow flag to celebrate the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia on May 17.
  7. Several U.S. diplomats in Jerusalem, Israel tweeted photos of themselves at local pride events, including a March for Pride and Tolerance.
  8. The U.S. ambassador to Nepal, Randy Berry, tweeted a picture of himself surrounded by embassy employees holding up rainbow letters that read “PRIDE.”
