The mask has slipped: At CNN’s LBTQ Town Hall, Dem candidates mock Christians and promise to deny tax-exempt status to churches

By Jonathon Van Maren So CNN held their LGBTQ Town Hall last night for the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, and the rest of us got a good look at where this country is headed if they manage to retake power (which Trump’s bumbling seems to be abetting at the moment.) Many conservative commentators are trumpeting…

World-renowned child psychiatrist calls trans treatments “possibly one of the greatest scandals in medical history”

By Jonathon Van Maren Is the medical community finally starting to push back against the transgender tidal wave that has swept through medical institutions in just a few years? While several critics have come forward to express concern—and have been immediately targeted with brutal smear campaigns and often had their careers destroyed—a new letter has…

Founders of Drag Queen Story Hour say the events intend to sell gender fluidity to children

By Jonathon Van Maren It is somewhat strange that the conservative civil war currently raging between the classical liberals (represented by the National Review’s David French) and the “illiberals” (represented by the New York Post’s Sohrab Ahmari) seems to be largely centred around Drag Queen Story Hour (colloquially referred to as DQSH).

LGBT activists accuse Education Secretary Betsy DeVos of being on an anti-trans “crusade” for visiting Catholic elementary school

Would suing the doctors halt the transgender phenomenon?

Over at the National Catholic Register, Benjamin Wiker, Professor of Political Science and Director of Human Life Studies as Franciscan University, proposes an interesting plan in a column titled “Here’s How We Can Stop the Transgender Juggernaut”: Sue the doctors carrying out sex-change surgeries (now helpfully called “gender affirmation surgeries”) on children.

Gender activists may be losing–and it is teen girls who are pushing back

Back in February, I noted in one of my columns for LifeSiteNews that teenagers—especially teen girls—were increasingly pushing back against the drive to impose gender fluidity on their schools. For woke progressive adults, the trans cause is in–another ideological pet project that allows them to virtue-signal more effectively (especially as scores of new pronouns and…

Biological female who gave birth to child now wants to be listed as the father on legal documents

By Jonathon Van Maren If one transgender activist has her way, the United Kingdom will soon be recognizing some biological women—who bore their own children—as “fathers.” According to the Metro UK earlier this week, trans activist Freddy McConnell “has appealed to be recognised as his child’s father after legal medical documents [indicate] that he can only…

Cory Booker invents new LGBT word in desperate attempt to win pandering war: “nie-phew”

By Jonathon Van Maren As Democratic presidential candidates battle for airtime in their efforts to make the next debate stage, the progressive Olympics are fully underway. Elizabeth Warren, with her characteristically magnificent obliviousness to irony, celebrated her birthday at Planned Parenthood. Kirsten Gillibrand attempted to display her rainbow street cred by awkwardly downing a shot…
