Trump Administration Considers Defining Gender As An Immutable Biological Condition Determined At Birth

http://www.joemygod.com/2018/10/21/trump-administration-considers-defining-gender-as-an-immutable-biological-condition-determined-at-birth/

The New York Times reports:

The Trump administration is considering narrowly defining gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth, the most drastic move yet in a government-wide effort to roll back recognition and protections of transgender people under federal civil rights law.

A series of decisions by the Obama administration loosened the legal concept of gender in federal programs, including in education and health care, recognizing gender largely as an individual’s choice and not determined by the sex assigned at birth. Conservatives, especially evangelical Christians, were incensed.

Now the Department of Health and Human Services is spearheading an effort to establish a legal definition of sex under Title IX, the federal civil rights law that bans gender discrimination in education programs that receive government financial assistance, according to a memo obtained by The New York Times. The agency’s proposed definition would define sex as either male or female, unchangeable, and determined by the genitals that a person is born with, according to a draft reviewed by The Times.

Karen Pence Campaigns For GOP House Candidate Who Longs For Return To Criminalization Of Homosexuality

http://www.joemygod.com/2018/10/11/karen-pence-campaigns-for-gop-house-candidate-who-longs-for-return-to-criminalization-of-homosexuality/

“In one generation you and I have witnessed this country sliding from a nation who once shared a moral vision based on Judeo-Christian ethic to a nation floundering in moral decay. In one generation we have watched our nation who once believed in lifelong marriages to the same spouse to a divorce rate now well over 50 percent. We have watched in one generation where homosexuality was once criminalized to now we see the criminalization of Christianity.”

Brett Kavanaugh Confirmation: Hello Christian Theocracy; Goodbye Church-State Separation

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/progressivesecularhumanist/2018/10/brett-kavanaugh-confirmation-hello-christian-theocracy-goodbye-church-state-separation/

Goodbye separation of church and state – hello Christian theocracy: Dramatic change is coming with the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh’s successful confirmation to the Supreme Court last week despite an intemperate, childish, and belligerent performance during his senate confirmation hearings, as well as credible allegations that he sexually assaulted multiple women as a young man, will reshape the court in dramatic fashion, threatening the separation of church and state, and promising the nightmare that would be a Christian theocracy.

During this confirmation process, our worst fears about Kavanaugh’s record, judicial philosophy, and temperament were confirmed. He has repeatedly shown himself to be a partisan ideologue who is more interested in protecting religious privilege for politically powerful sects than standing up for true religious freedom.

Kavanaugh’s views on religious issues are deeply outside the mainstream and threaten decades of precedent on issues ranging from taxpayer subsidy of religion and proselytizing in public schools, to civil rights protections for LGBTQ Americans and access to reproductive health care for women.

Graham Tells Booing Audience “Boo Yourself”

Filed under: Asshole / Jerk, Dealing With Abuse, Gender, News, Political, Questions — Scottie @ 12:15

Lindsey is losing it, telling people he doesn’t care what they think, and to “boo yourself”.  He has all the signs of having a deep crush on Kavanaugh, and they both are getting unhinged.   Hugs

Graham Tells Booing Audience “Boo Yourself”

A Washington, D.C., audience booed Sen. Lindsey Graham on Wednesday after he said Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has been treated poorly by those who oppose his confirmation. “I thought Kavanaugh was treated like crap,” the Republican South Carolina senator said at the Atlantic Festival. The audience booed Graham’s comments. “Well, boo yourself,” Graham shot back.

To the Young Men and Women of America, From the GOP

Filed under: Dealing With Abuse, Education, Gender, Greed, Harm, Health, Ideas, News, Political, Questions, Reason — Scottie @ 22:19

An incredibly powerful written work.  Please go read it.  It puts this whole thing in perspective.   Hugs

https://johnpavlovitz.com/2018/09/28/to-the-young-men-and-women-of-america-from-the-gop/?utm_campaign=coschedule&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=johnpavlovitz

To the Young Men of America,

You can do whatever you want to young women.

You can disregard their humanity,
force yourself on them physically,
ignore their pleas to stop,
proceed without consent,
hurt them,

humiliate them,
indulge your urges,
treat them as property,
and silence, slander, and intimidate them after the fact.

You can do this as often as you like, to as many young girls as opportunity and your desires allow.

We will have your back (providing you are white, wealthy, and one day vote Republican.)

We will marshal our every resource of finance and position and privilege in protecting and defending you.

 

And to Young Women of America,

You don’t matter.

Not your trauma or your pain,
not the innocence you lose,
not the damage you sustain,
not the scars you are marked by,
not the nightmares you are haunted by,
not the peace you no longer find, 
not the confidence that leaves you,
not the fear that is ever present,
not the shame that you cannot shake,
not the silence you are imprisoned by.

We simply do not see you as valuable—at least not as valuable as the status quo we’re protecting or the legislation we’re coveting or the religion we’re perpetuating or the votes we’re needing.

You are the acceptable collateral damage of our misogyny and entitlement.

Your body, your emotional health, and your sense of safety—simply aren’t worth more than a Supreme Court seat.

Of course, should a pregnancy somehow be created by your violation, we will vigorously demand that you be forced to carry it, even if it exacerbates your pain and magnifies your despair. After all, we urgently need to perpetuate the appearance that we are pro-life—just not yourlife.

Yale Pal Recounts Time Kavanaugh Started Bar Fight

Filed under: Asshole / Jerk, Criminal, Gender, Harm, History, News, Political, Questions, Reason — Scottie @ 10:25

But will the Senate let the FBI ask about this or even record a statement?   More information at the link.  Hugs

Charles Ludington, a former varsity basketball player and friend of Kavanaugh’s at Yale, told The Washington Post on Sunday that he plans to deliver a statement to the FBI field office in Raleigh on Monday detailing violent drunken behavior by Kavanaugh in college. Ludington, an associate professor at North Carolina State University, provided a copy of the statement to The Post.

In it, Ludington says in one instance, Kavanaugh initiated a fight that led to the arrest of a mutual friend: “When Brett got drunk, he was often belligerent and aggressive. On one of the last occasions I purposely socialized with Brett, I witnessed him respond to a semi-hostile remark, not by defusing the situation, but by throwing his beer in the man’s face and starting a fight that ended with one of our mutual friends in jail.”

Lindsey Graham Vows “Full-Scale Investigation” Into Democrats’ Handling Of Christine Ford’s Allegations

Much more at the link below.   Hugs

http://www.joemygod.com/2018/09/30/lindsey-graham-vows-full-scale-investigation-into-democrats-handling-of-christine-fords-allegations/

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., vowed Sunday to launch a thorough inquiry into Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee to find out whether there was any wrongdoing in how they managed the sexual misconduct allegation Christine Blasey Ford leveled at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. “We’re going to do a wholesale, full scale investigation of what I think was a despicable process to deter it from happening again,” Graham said during an interview on ABC News’ “This Week.”

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham suggested that there is no need for the FBI’s supplemental investigation of Brett Kavanaugh to include talking to his former classmates about his drinking habits in college. Stephanopoulos said, “It appears that the FBI will not be questioning those college witnesses who contradict Brett Kavanaugh’s testimony about his drinking. Isn’t that relevant?” Graham said, “No, I think you’re trying to portray him as a stumbling, bumbling drunk, gang rapist, who during high school and college was Bill Cosby.”

What if it was your son ?

Filed under: Gender, My Life and Rants, News, opinion, Questions, Reason — Scottie @ 13:58

Once more into the breech…

I was listening to the news and heard that some people were using the line “What if it was your son”.  Clearly these people were saying what if it was your son’s career on the line because a woman claimed he sexually assaulted her.    This was a big topic on fox news.   The idea they wanted to push was what if a woman lied about your son, or even if true would you want your son’s future high ranking job threatened by things they did in high school and college.  

However if you think on it what they should be thinking, what it really should be asking, is “What if it was your son that was sexually harassed or assaulted”?  It happens, it has happened, and if we don’t educate ourselves and protect our children of all genders it will happen again.   Not to drag up old memories but as you all know I am living proof it can happen to your sons, to any male.   It has happened to a a lot of males.   So yes what if it was your son, wouldn’t you want the truth to come out and his attacker to not get promoted to a life time appointment on the highest court in our land?   What if it was your son, wouldn’t you want him believed?  What if it was your son, wouldn’t you demand accountability from his attacker?   What if was your son?   Hugs
