Missouri state lawmakers are considering a proposal that would restrict transgender high schoolers from competing in teams that don’t match their gender at birth, according to a Tuesday report. State Sen. Cindy O’Laughlin, R-Shelby County, who introduced the bill, said transgender athletes have an unfair advantage over those who identify with their gender at birth, Springfield’s KY3 reported. “It is a known biological fact that males are born with categorically superior strength, speed and endurance,” O’Laughlin said during an education committee hearing on Tuesday. “It has nothing to do with any other issue than trying to create a fair playing field.” Under current Missouri law, transgender athletes who want to play on teams that don’t match their assigned birth must apply to the Missouri State High School Activities Association (MSHSAA), submitting medical records and other relevant documentation. Transgender women must prove they’ve been on testosterone blockers for a year and stick with them. Opponents of O’Laughlin’s proposal have dismissed her biological claims, arguing that Missouri’s current laws on the matter already provide a fair vetting process. “They have provided fair and inclusive parameters for inclusion in sports,” Jennifer Mock, a mom of transgender athlete, told KY3. “These parameters allow my son to play the game [of hockey] he’s always wanted to play with his childhood peers.” A similar bill aimed at restricted transgender athletes from competing on teams other than their sex at birth is making the rounds in the state’s House. For either to pass, it must be approved by the General Assembly before getting put on the ballot for a vote, KY3 reported.
Missouri State Sen. Cindy O’Laughlin (R) is exactly right. This isn’t about anything other than addressing the obvious biological facts surrounding this issue. So, kudos to her and others in the Missouri state legislature trying to address this latest politically correct trend that is negatively impacting high school athletics. Thank God I didn’t have to deal with this crap back when I was in high school. Guys competed against guys and girls competed against girls. Period. Imagine that.
Disney’s “Onward” is set to feature an openly LGBTQ animated character to be voiced by actress Lena Waithe. The character, a purple cyclops, will be a police officer who references her girlfriend when she pulls over a driver that was distracted by his girlfriend’s kids, according to Slate. “My girlfriend’s daughter got me pulling my hair out,” the character, Officer Specter, reportedly says. While Waithe is portraying the first animated character to be openly LGBTQ, Disney has featured a few other LGBTQ characters in their live-action films. “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” featured a same-sex kiss between two soldiers while “Beauty and the Beast” portrayed LeFou as gay. “Onward” stars Tom Holland and Chris Pratt as brothers who embark on a quest to magically resurrect their father for a day. The cast also features Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Octavia Spencer, Tracey Ullman and Ali Wong. The film hits theaters on Friday, March 6.
More family Unfriendly political correctness courtesy of Disney, of all things. Disney used to be like the Hallmark channel. You could take your kids to those movies, or leave them in front of the tv unsupervised for a while. Not anymore. Now they’re just out to push the gay agenda onto our kids. Walt Disney is rolling over in his grave.
A voter integrity watchdog says a study arguing transgender voters could be disenfranchised by strict voter ID laws is overblown.
This is today’s ridiculous story of the day..and makes for a good laugh on this Friday. Of COURSE anything put out by UCLA (a breathtakingly liberal university in the People’s Republic of California) regarding the LGBT issue is gonna be “overblown.” Recently we reported on a newly released census study that says those who consider themselves to be LGBT is between 3-4% of the total U.S. population. I was under the impression for years (thanks to the disinformation on this subject) that it was between 8-10%. So, I was WAY off. Federal government statistics set me straight, and we reported that. Facts, indeed, ARE “stubborn things!” UCLA is suggesting that voter ID laws are “oppressing” members of the LGBT community. Gimme a break! Is that same community “oppressed” by their driver’s licenses when they get pulled over? or if they’re carded at a drinking establishment? I kinda doubt it. Its all bs; always is. And don’t ya ever notice how those same groups that cry “oppression” over such things as voter ID laws (which make perfect common sense), are those same groups that tend to get indicted for voter fraud? Groups like Obama’s old group ACORN? Yeah.. Consider the sources. Its perfectly reasonable to have to show a valid, government issued, photo ID in order to vote. You have to have one to drive a car, or be able to drink alcohol in a bar or restaurant. It makes all the sense in the world that you prove you actually live where you say you live (and that you’re not dead or a dog, etc.) in the district where you’re voting, and properly registered to vote in that election. Its just a small way, at the local level, to cut down on the out-of-control rampant voter fraud in this country. There are already studies suggesting that Obama MAY have actually lost the 2012 election, and that Mitt Romney won that election. But, voter fraud on the part of many Democrats pushed Obama over the line. Of course its all water under the bridge now. Just consider how different things would have been the last two years had Mitt won. Yeah.. Exactly..
In Face of Islamist Terror, Senate Bill Makes LGBT U.S. ‘Foreign Policy Priority’
I couldn’t believe this when I heard this on the radio earlier today.. I wanted to just bang my head against a wall. How on Earth is LGBT a “foreign policy priority,” exactly? That’s rhetorical, of course. Its not a priority. In fact, it shouldn’t even be part of ANY foreign policy discussion…because the very topic is offensive to many other countries. And, our hands our more than full with many of those same countries (i.e. N. Korea, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Russia, etc.). You would go NOWHERE with that topic with any of those aforementioned countries. Trust me. Yesterday, Brit Hume (an otherwise mild-mannered, reserved, cautious, very well spoken journalist) referred to Obama as “unimaginably incompetent.” THIS is an example of why Obama and his lap dogs in the U.S. Senate (lead by Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid D-NV) are SO out of touch with reality, why their priorities are so out of whack, why our government is spiraling out of control, and our national security is in greater danger than at anytime in my lifetime. The Russians are having our lunch in Ukraine, we have a president seriously considering allying ourselves with IRAN so as to fix a breathtaking screw up of HIS in Iraq, and the list goes on and on and on.. And yet, this buffoon, keystone cop of a President, and the Dem-controlled U.S. Senate, apparently has the time to talk about LGBT (and is working on legislation requiring that issue be incorporated into God-knows what all), and “climate change” nonsense…and that’s when Obama isn’t out playing golf, or going to $32K/plate fund-raising dinners, of course. Our federal government, from Obama on down, is WAY out of control and isn’t serving we-the-taxpayers well. Its time to throw these useless, and incompetent bums the hell out of office as soon as humanly possible.
