LGBTQ Agenda will be Forced on Illinois Children

Identity Politics Gone Wild! So what if reading, writing and arithmetic suffer. As long as our children know some figure from history was gay or dressed up like a woman. After all – what’s more important?

from Conservative Review:

American History: LGBTQ Edition

A new Illinois law requires Illinois schools to teach kids of all ages about the contributions of the LGBTQ community, the Chicago Tribune reported last month. Illinois Gov. J. B. Pritzker signed the Inclusive Curriculum Law August 9; it mandates that public schools teach students as early as possible about contributions lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people have made to U.S. state and national history. The details about why it passed and who passed it demonstrate just how much the LGBTQ lobby is targeting children to focus on a specific ideology, excluding others — with taxpayer dollars.

What the Illinois law mandates

While the bill passed handily in both the Illinois state House and Senate (60-42 and 37-17, respectively), its sponsors left it purposely vague. The Inclusive Curriculum Law simply says the teaching of U.S. and Illinois history in public schools “shall include a study of the roles and contributions of” LGBTQ people without specifying just how this should be done. read more

A Transgender Who Isn’t Chronically Offended

From Walter E. Willams for TownHall:

Youth and Ignorance

Camille Paglia

Camille Paglia is a professor of humanities and media studies at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, where she has been a faculty member since 1984. Paglia describes herself as transgender, but unlike so many other transgender people, she is pro-capitalism and hostile to those who’d restrict free speech. She’s a libertarian. As to modern ideas that include “gender-inclusive pronouns” such as zie, sie and zim, Paglia says it is lunacy.

An LGBT Bank?

Sounds ridiculous, but frankly is it anymore absurd than any other leftist “Identity Politics” initiative.

from Daily Political Newswire:

Michigan Approves America’s First ‘Gay Credit Union’

Welcome to America, where sexual orientation now apparently affects your financial status.

On Monday, Michigan became the first state to approve a charter to create a credit union for LGBT customers.  It is set to begin early next year.

Superbia Credit Union is set to offer services for the LGBT community that they claim is outside of the norm when it comes to traditional banks. For example, Superbia Services Inc. founder Myles Meyers said they will be offering loans for transgender people who are in the process of transitioning.

“As the world’s only LGBTQ profit-for-purpose provider, Superbia is here to force the needed systemic change in banking, insurance and healthcare and install a new paradigm in funding LGBTQ social equality,” Meyers wrote on LinkedIn.

“I can walk into a bank or credit union and apply for a loan or credit card or savings accounts and frankly, no problem,” he added, “If I walked in to the same institution with my husband, we can come across different responses and welcome. And this is where it all starts to change for the community.”

Bloomberg reports:

But it’s still legal to discriminate against LGBT consumers in most U.S. states, and research shows that gay couples face hurdles in banking regardless of geography. Same-sex couples are less likely to be approved for a loan, for example, and when they are, they pay more for the financing.

Comedian Ricky Gervais Feeling the Heat of Canada’s Insanity

from NewsBusters:

Ricky Gervais Called ‘Transphobe’ For Defending Women Refusing To Wax Trans Woman’s Penis

[Warning: Coarse Language Throughout]

British comedian Ricky Gervais has been called “transphobic” over defending women refusing to wax transwomen in Canada because they are uncomfortable dealing with their clients’ very male genitalia. Gervais defended the spa workers saying that it’s “real feminism” for women to choose who to wax or not, but internet users aren’t having it.

Remember, trans women have more political victim tokens than ordinary women. If Gervais would only remember that, he wouldn’t be dragged as he is at the moment. read more

Being Black and Christian doesn’t Fit In with National Women’s Soccer Team

When the choice is between one of best female soccer players in America and wearing a gay pride jersey, the National Women’s Soccer team chose the jersey. And did I mention that the player is black? Interestingly, there were no cries of racism from anyone on the woke left.

The absence of one of the best women’s soccer players in the nation from the national squad that just won the World Cup has prompted questions as to whether she didn’t make the team because of her openly professed Christian faith.

Jaelene Hinkle, 26, “has been called the top left defender in the U.S. game,” according to The Washington TimesFox News noted Hinkle “helped her team win the NWSL championship and previously helped it win a title in 2016 when it was known as the Western New York Flash.” read more

Another Slap in the Face to Veterans

To equate the importance of a flag representing the gender some people pretend to be with a flag honoring our prisoners of war and those missing in action is a travesty. But to take one down and replace with another is just disgusting and a purposeful dig at all those who hold dear the military and those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

from the Blaze:

Rainbow pride flag replaces POW/MIA flag at veterans memorial plaza — and public outcry is ignited

Veteran John “Bill” Williams recalled to WRC-TV that he was in Vietnam just six days before two fellow service members were shot down, declared missing in action, “and they still haven’t found their bodies.”

“I wasn’t happy about it at all because the park is supposed to be a veterans park,” Williams told WRC. “People died. Now they took it down and put another flag up.”

He added to the station, “If they want to put the other flag underneath, they could put it underneath, but the POW flag should be flying there.”

Leftist University Rids Itself of the Scourge of Chick-fil-A

Chick-fil-A is now the third largest chain restaurant in the nation, behind only McDonald’s at number one and Starbucks in second. It successfully unseated Subway recently, bumping the sub-shop chain to number four. It has seen a meteoric rise as of late. In 2017, Chick-fil-A was ranked a mere 7th, behind Taco Bell, Burger King and Wendy’s . But the quality of its product and superior staff has pole-vaulted it passed the aforementioned giants.

And its done all this despite constant attacks by the loony left, claiming that the restaurant chain supports “anti-LGBT” causes. These attacks are particularly prevalent on … you guessed it … college campuses.

Special Rights for Special Students

On their website, GLAAD, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, states clearly that, ” Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people want equal rights, not special rights.”

Thank Goodness for the British Muslim Community

I know it’s wrong to, but I am loving this. And I would love to have been a fly on the wall when the tortured decision was made by the ultra-progressives in the U.K. to end a program they celebrated. What am I referring to? Well, read on to find out – and enjoy as I did.

Feminists Couldn’t Get Trans Ideology Out Of UK Public Schools, But Muslims Did

In the United Kingdom, where the LGBT+ agenda is well entrenched in the school system, there have been protests from the Muslim population against these so-called teachings of tolerance. In Birmingham, a program called No Outsiders, organized by Andrew Moffatt, has been on the curriculum to teach students as young as five the ins and outs of same-sex families, inclusivity, and diversity.

Moffatt, who is deputy head teacher at Parkfield Community School, developed the program “to ensure future younger generations learn about acceptance and respect of others.” While that’s a rather non-offensive ethos, what sowed tensions in the community was the introduction of LGBT+ content in the program. read more
