Teacher Gets the Ax over a Name

A school teacher has recently been fired because he refused to call students by the name they prefer rather than their given names.

No, it wasn’t a case of Robert wanting to be called Bob, or Juliet wanting to be called Julie. That would have been simple. But it seems life in the public school system never is these days, even in a State like Indiana, which isn’t exactly considered as a hot-bed of leftism.

Yet, now Former Brownsburg High School orchestra teacher John Kluge, is without employment because he believes it’s wrong to call transgendered students by their “preferred” names, rather than the name which was given them at birth.

Yes – this is the soul reason why Kluge is unemployed, and now probably black-balled as a hater from seeking employment at any public school. read more

What’s Next for Target Dressing Rooms – Attacks – Abductions?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

On April 19, Target announced that anyone can now use their restrooms or dressing rooms, regardless of gender.

With its announcement, Target has made the statement that they are a company run by enlightened progressives who care more about equal rights than you and I.

Their statement, so chock-full of feel-good liberal buzzwords, it could have (and may have) been written by the Obama administration. On its corporate website they posted that, “We believe that everyone – every team member, every guest, and every community – deserves to be protected from discrimination, and treated equally. We welcome transgendered team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity.”

So we deserve to be protected from discrimination, just not from predators. They also mentioned that they “welcome transgendered team members” (store employees) yet strangely, I haven’t seen anywhere the number of transgender “team members” they have. And even odder is that the mainstream media has not bothered to ask. I wonder why that is, he asked rhetorically.

Instead, all we hear is the constant refrain of how anyone who doesn’t agree with the Target policy is a Bible-thumping myopic Neanderthal. When we with common sense dare to question the sanity of the Target policy, the left claims that we are unnecessarily whipping up opposition and just being absurd. read more
