Propaganda video shows children indoctrinated into “gender fluidity” agenda

Some disturbing statements from this video:

“Our genitals actually don’t determine our gender.”

“Some people born with vulvas can be boys.”

Child abuse to teach kids such insane, unscientific beliefs.

Parents magazine uses a 4-year-old boy to spread propaganda

Parents magazine is published by the Meredith Corporation and, according to their Wikipedia page, features “scientific” information on child development geared to help parents in raising their children.

That is a complete lie. What they are really featuring is complete leftist LGTBQRSTUV propaganda.

Last week the magazine posted the above picture to Instagram saying the following: “I told him [Eli, the kid in the picture] that SOME women, SOME non binary people and SOME men have periods. It was easy for him to accept as he hadn’t had to unlearn the engrained societal norm but if a 4 year old can grasp it I’m sure most of us can have a crack at unlearning transphobic/misinformed norms and open our minds… ya think?”

They also shared this lie on Twitter with an accompanying article about the womyn who originally shared the picture.

Fortunately the majority of comments do no support this progressive madness.

Hopefully this boy will receive a proper education. Yet I’m not holding my breath that the reality of biology will be entertained in his home.

Why Big Tech wants to access your medical records

No surprise that this is happening.

And no surprise why people feel less inclined to share with their doctors any true information about their medical status (think VA).

“A step forward?” New strain of HIV discovered for the first time since 2000

From Daily Mail: Scientists have identified a new strain of HIV – the first to be discovered since 2000.

The newly-discovered strain belongs to the same sub-family of the virus responsible for the pandemic that began in 1981 in Sub-Saharan Africa, spread around the globe and has killed 32 million people.

It belongs to Group M of the virus and was identified in three people in the Democratic Republic of Congo by scientists at Abbott Labs, which makes HIV diagnostic tests. The family of viruses is still the one that most commonly infects humans.

Although it may represent an evolution of the virus, the new HIV strain contains the necessary similarities to previously discovered Group M ones to still be diagnosed and treated using existing methods.

But the discovery of this strain – and all others of HIV – could be a step forward in their understanding of how the virus evolves, how to diagnose and treat it and to the development of a potential vaccine to end the pandemic for good.

‘This discovery is just the tip of the iceberg,’ said Dr. Mary Rodgers, a principal scientist at Abbott and a study co-author. ‘Abbott is making this new strain available to the research community globally to evaluate its impact to diagnostic testing, treatments and potential vaccines.’

This is the first time a new subtype of Group M HIV has been identified since classification guidelines for parsing out the various strains were established at the turn of the century.

Researchers say the new discovery helps them to stay one step ahead of a mutating virus and avoid new pandemics. They’ve actually been aware of the novel strain for some time, but DNA sequencing technology was insufficient to confirm it as new, until now.

Before an unusual virus can be determined a new subtype, three cases of it must be discovered independently.

The first two samples of the new HIV-1 Group M, subtype L were discovered in DRC in the 1980s and the 1990s. The third, collected in 2001, was difficult to sequence at the time because of the amount of virus in the sample and the existing technology.

Global healthcare company Abbott made the discovery, which is published in the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes (JAIDS).

‘In an increasingly connected world, we can no longer think of viruses being contained to one location,’ Carole McArthur, professor in the departments of oral and craniofacial sciences, University of Missouri, Kansas City, and one of the study authors, said.

‘This discovery reminds us that to end the HIV pandemic, we must continue to out-think this continuously changing virus and use the latest advancements in technology and resources to monitor its evolution.’

Latest genome sequencing technology allows researchers to build an entire genome at higher speeds and lower costs.

In order to make the most of this technology, Abbott scientists developed and applied new techniques to help narrow in on the virus portion of the sample to fully sequence and complete the genome.

The new Group M strain will not change the way HIV is diagnosed or treated, and simply means that people are tested for the new strain as well.

Existing diagnostic tests and anti-retroviral drugs, which suppress the growth of HIV, are designed to target the parts of the virus that are common to all groups.

Dr. Michael Brady, medical director at HIV charity Terrence Higgins Trust said: ‘Scientific progress in our understanding of HIV continues to move at a fast pace. It’s important to stress that there are many different strains of HIV, but our ability to detect and treat the virus remains the same. Thanks to medical advances, HIV is now a long-term manageable condition and people on effective treatment can’t pass the virus on.’

An estimated 47 percent of people who are living with HIV are considered ‘virally suppressed, meaning that treatment has lowered the load of the virus in their blood sufficiently so that it cannot be transmitted to other people.

‘We now have the tools to end new HIV transmissions once and for all, and breaking down barriers to testing will help us achieve that goal.’

Sunday Devotional: ‘Before the Lord the whole universe is as a grain’

Wisdom 11:22-12:2

Before the LORD the whole universe is as a grain from a balance
or a drop of morning dew come down upon the earth.
But you have mercy on all, because you can do all things;
and you overlook people’s sins that they may repent.
For you love all things that are
and loathe nothing that you have made;
for what you hated, you would not have fashioned.
And how could a thing remain, unless you willed it;
or be preserved, had it not been called forth by you?
But you spare all things, because they are yours,
O LORD and lover of souls,
for your imperishable spirit is in all things!
Therefore you rebuke offenders little by little,
warn them and remind them of the sins they are committing,
that they may abandon their wickedness and believe in you, O LORD!

“Before the Lord the whole universe is as a grain….”

Do you want to see how our Earth, that tiny blue marble in our solar system, compares to other bodies in the Universe?

Here are some visual aids (source: BabaMail):

Psalm 19:1

The heavens declare the glory of God;
and the firmament showeth His handiwork.

Try to imagine the truly awesome, mind-boggling Being who created all this — this unimaginably vast Universe that our puny human pea-brain can’t even begin to grasp or comprehend.

And yet atheists declare there is no God and that this Universe happened willy nilly, just by accident. “There is no God” is a categorical universal negative, like the assertion “There is no unicorn,” the truth of which is dependent on the atheist having examined every place, every nook, every cranny in the unimaginably vast Universe to definitively preclude the existence of God. That, of course, is an impossibility, which just goes to show how grandiose, illogical and stupid atheists are.

It is said that when St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274), the towering intellect and theologian, was near death, he was given a glimpse of the Godhead. Humbled and awed, he whispered, referring to all of the many and brilliant works he had written in his lifetime: “All is straw.”

No wonder our Lord Jesus the Christ, the Second Person of the Triune Godhead who humbled Himself by incarnating as a flesh-and-blood man, instructed us that:

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:16)

And we are alive this morning in this glorious Universe!

May the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,

Man who identifies as female named NCAA Conference “Female” Athlete of the Week

From Daily Mail: A transgender female NCAA cross country runner has been named the Female Athlete of the Week.

June Eastwood, a University of Montana senior, has been named Female Athlete of the Week by the Big Sky Conference on Tuesday after excelling in a race held on October 19. At the Santa Clara Bronco Invitational in Sunnyvale, California, the 22-year-old finished second in a group of 204 female runners.

The Big Sky Conference said she clocked a time of 20:86 in the 6km race and was instrumental in helping the team place seventh in the overall event.

Previously, Eastwood competed on the University of Montana’s men’s team before identifying as a transgender female and being allowed a spot on the women’s team.

As a man, she was a standout athlete throughout her younger years and won state titles in multiple men’s races. She competed in her first female division run on August 31 of this year.

‘(I’m) nervous and excited. Nervous for what that means and how people will react, but excited because I haven’t competed in 15 months, and excited to get this started,’ Eastwood told Bozeman Daily Chronicles.

The debate surrounding transgender athletes in sports, which are generally based on gender, has become a hot button issue in daily discourse.

Those who oppose transgender females competing in sports usually cite hormonal factors like higher testosterone levels in trans women and physiological features like height and weight. Supporters point out that sports of all levels have been categorized by gender and transgender females should compete in the gender division they identify as.

In June’s case, and other collegiate transgender athletes, the NCAA’s policy allows male athletes to compete in women’s athletics under certain guidelines.

The policy dictates that male runners who identify as transgender women must suppress testosterone levels for a full calendar year before competing in women’s sports.

In a 2011 handbook, the NCAA sought advice from medical professionals familiar with the ‘complexities of the transitioning student-athlete.’

It subsequently determined that it’s not warranted to assume: ‘that being born with a male body automatically gives a transgender woman an unfair advantage when competing against non-transgender women.’

However, other medical professionals have said that transgender woman have an advantage over cis-gendered women.

In a study in the Journal of Medical Ethics, they said there is little evidence to show testosterone mitigates past muscle mass. ‘In addition, the phenomenon of muscle memory means muscle mass and strength can be rebuilt with previous strength exercise making it easier to regain muscle mass later in life even after long intervening periods of inactivity and mass loss,’ the authors said according to the Daily Caller.

As it stands now, more research will need to conducted in the upcoming years to fully understand the several factors surrounding the topic.

After word of Eastwood’s accolade spread, people across social media had varying reactions.
Some people supported Eastwood and congratulated her on the accomplishment. One person wrote: ‘Honestly never thought I’d say this but “Go lady Griz!!” Congrats June!’

‘Looking forward to watching her run- she is an amazing athlete,’ another wrote. A Twitter user said: ‘Super excited and proud that June gets to experience this journey at the U of M. Best of luck!’

Others said the recognition was uncalled for. ‘This is hurting female competitors, and is completely unfair,’ one person said.

In May, the House of Representatives voted to approve the Equality Act, a policy that would requite all schools to allow male athletes who identify as transgender women to compete in women’s sports.

Regardless, Eastwood and the University of Montana team will be competing in the Big Sky Conference Championship.

P&G continues their path to being the wokest: Always removes packaging’s female symbol to be “inclusive”

Yeah, this is happening. And of course it’s coming from Proctor & Gamble.

From Yahoo: A leading sanitary product brand has announced its decision to remove a feminine logo from packaging, in order to be more inclusive.

Always, owned by Proctor & Gamble, will remove the feminine Venus symbol – a sign derived from astrological symbols often used to represent females – from its packaging. The symbol is currently used on the packaging of individual sanitary towels, in certain multipacks sold by the brand.

This move is out of consideration for transgender and non-binary people who use the products.

It follows a series of complaints on Twitter from transgender activists. Campaigners Melly Boom and Ben Saunders were among the first to call out the company for having a female symbol on their packaging, according to the Daily Mail. Both individuals have since made their accounts private. (COWARDS!)

In a letter to Saunders, which has since been shared online, Sheryl, a member of the Always team, confirmed the new packaging design will begin to replace the old one from December 2019 onwards, with the newer designs distributed everywhere by February 2020.

However, not everyone is on board with the change, with some others are calling to boycott Always over it. Opponents are arguing that the change is unfair because the “vast majority” of sanitary towel users are women.”

Read the whole story here.

I guess all the feminists who are proud to be women are going to have to remove these in order not to offend anyone:

Another reason to not have Amazon technology in your home: Workers reportedly watching home security camera footage

Why anyone would put any of this “SMART” technology in their home is their business. You’ll never find it in mine.

Business Insider reports that Amazon workers in India and Romania are watching footage of Cloud Cam home security recordings in order to improve the AI technology. From their report:

Amazon reviews these video recordings to improve the performance of its Cloud Cam, helping it to better distinguish between an intruder and normal household activity. Amazon’s review team has in some cases assessed up to 150 video clips per day that are usually 20 to 30 seconds long, according to Bloomberg.

Amazon only reviews clips that are submitted by Cloud Cam owners for troubleshooting purposes, as well as those from employee testers, according to Bloomberg. However, two of the people Bloomberg spoke with said that footage submitted for review in rare cases included private interactions, such as recordings of sexual activity.

Customers can share a specific clip with Amazon to improve the device’s performance through the Cloud Cam’s feedback option, the company says. When a clip is shared, Amazon says it “may get annotated and used for supervised learning to improve the accuracy of Cloud Cam’s computer vision systems.

Amazon’s terms of service agreement for the Cloud Cam doesn’t explicitly say that the company’s workers may view footage recorded by the camera. It does, however, say that the customer grants Amazon permission to “review your Cloud Cam recordings to provide technical support.”

US government opens up 725,000 acres in California to oil, gas drilling

In the comment section, progressives are ticked off about this move. Works for me!

From SF Gate: The federal government has opened 725,000 acres in Central California to oil and gas drilling on land that has been off-limits since 2013.

The Bureau of Land Management issued its final decision Friday to allow oil and gas leases on plots that are mostly in the Central Valley, but also include parts of the Central Coast. The area includes parts of Monterey, San Benito and Fresno counties, and would allow for 32 new gas and oil development wells to be added.

The plan announced in May is part of a Trump administration goal to make the U.S. energy independent that has been criticized as a giveaway to industry.

Environmentalists who successfully blocked the Obama administration from opening the land to drilling criticized the new development.

The Center for Biological Diversity called the effort reckless and says it will continue to fight the government.

“This reckless move is the toxic convergence of Trump’s climate denial, loyalty to the oil industry and grudge against California,” Clare Lakewood, a senior attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity, told The Hill. “Turning over these spectacular wild places to dirty drilling and fracking will sicken Californians, harm endangered species and fuel climate chaos. We’ll fight tooth and nail to make sure it doesn’t happen.”

The BLM says additional approval will be required for before any drilling.
