A roundup of news and commentary from around the interwebs.
Kanye West has once again posted about how porn addiction has ruined his life and destroyed his family. Another tragic reminder about the potent poison that is everywhere.
Calvin Klein is advertising underwear—using female models with elaborate plastic fitted chest binders that crush the breasts and make the wearer look male. What a vile message to be sending—and what a wicked product to be selling.

A Christian teacher has won his “preferred pronouns” legal case. From CBN:
A Kansas teacher who sued after being punished for refusing to use a student’s preferred pronouns received a $95,000 settlement this week, bringing her legal challenge to a successful close.
Attorneys for Christian teacher Pamela Ricard, who taught math at Fort Riley Middle School, are calling Geary County School District’s settlement a “victory for free speech at public schools.” The district will also reportedly cover Ricard’s legal fees.
Tyson Langhofer, the director of the Alliance Defending Freedom Center for Academic Freedom, said his religious liberty law firm is hopeful the case has a ripple effect, according to the Kansas City Star.
“We hope that it will encourage school districts across the country to support the constitutionally protected freedom of teachers to teach and communicate honestly with both children and parents,” Langhofer said.

In the category of “can’t believe this has to be said,” a federal court has affirmed the right of California churches not to cover abortions in their healthcare plans.
No president has ever been more committed to abortion than Joe Biden, the second to identify as Catholic. Now, the Department Of Veterans Affairs has been instructed to begin offering abortions to veterans—even in states where it is banned.
I will keep on posting these stories as long as they continue to mutilate and poison children. From the Epoch Times: “Ex-Transgender Teen Recounts ‘Horrifying’ Experience of Transition, Surgery.”
It is even more awful to consider how the scientific elites have lined up behind the trans activists to backfill their ideological vacuum with junk science. Once again, Scientific American has distorted data in order to lie about the impact of trans ideology. The effects are…well, see above.
It’s the medical community, too. Christopher Rufo has been doing excellent reporting on this issue. In one of his latest reports, he exposes how in Chicago, the city’s largest children’s hospital has partnered with local school districts to promote radical gender theory. Excerpt:
The largest children’s hospital in Chicago has created partnerships with local school districts to promote radical gender theory, “kink,” “BDSM,” and “trans-friendly” sex toys for children.
I have obtained insider documents that reveal this troubling collaboration between gender activists at Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and school administrators throughout the Chicago area. According to these documents, and a review of school district websites, Lurie Children’s Hospital has provided materials to school leaders promoting radical gender theory, trans activism, and sexually explicit materials in at least four Chicago-area public school systems: District 75, District 120, District 181, and District 204. According to a whistleblower, these documents were circulated to administrators, teachers, and other staff at the middle school and high school level as part of ongoing employee-training programs.
This should be criminal. Read the whole thing.
