Yet More Trans-Insanity

May 23, 2016

Decades ago when most people were sleeping big time, I warned about where the homosexual activist agenda would take us. Most folks did not care or did not want to hear. Now of course all one can do is sadly say, “I told you so”. All the warnings I and others made have now all well and truly come to pass.

Every day we have had examples of the homosexual war on faith, freedom and family. That is why I ended up writing three books on the topic (well, two and a half to be exact). But now we are in exactly the same place with the transgender agenda.

It is of course part and parcel of the homosexual agenda, and both feed off each other. And once again I and others are seeking to warn a sleeping West about how dire this militant bunch of activists really is. And each day new shocking examples of what they are up to come to light.

So maybe I will need to write three books on this as well, and hope a few folks – including clueless Christians – might wake up before it is too late. The stories that appear each day seem utterly unbelievable, but they are sadly only going to get worse.

transgender 1So I will keep chronicling all this, and maybe some folks will realise just how far down the tubes we really are. Let me begin with a few stories from overseas. Because there are so many things to cover here, I will basically just offer the headline and opening paragraphs of each story.

-Girl Scouts Welcome Cross-Dressing Boys into their Ranks
May 15, 2015
The Girl Scouts of America (GSA) is the latest organization to cave to pressure from the LGBTIQA lobby, adapting its policies to extend membership to boys who identify as girls. Penny Nance from Concerned Women for America called the decision “just one more slap in the face to Christian parents.” On the GSA website, the association states: “If the child is recognized by the family and school/community as a girl and lives culturally as a girl, then Girl Scouts is an organization that can serve her in a setting that is both emotionally and physically safe.” Girls participating in the scouts will now be obliged to recognize transgenderism as a normal lifestyle, critics say.
The conservative American Family Association expressed its outrage at the policy change, accusing scout leaders of “losing their moral compass.” This is the case of adults being “willing to experiment on our kids—both the boys who are confused and the girls who will wonder why a boy in a dress is in the bathroom with them.” “Boys in skirts, boys in make-up and boys in tents will become a part of the program. This change will put young innocent girls at risk,” the group said.

-Chicago man chokes 8-year-old girl in public bathroom
May 15, 2016
The Chicago Sun Times reports that an eight year old girl was choked by a man who was in the women’s bathroom.
The girl’s mother was shopping when her daughter went to the restroom alone. The mother heard a scream and ran into the bathroom where she found 33 year old Reese M. Hartstirn carrying the unconscious little girl into a stall. He had used his hands to strangle her until she passed out.

-Obama Appoints Transgender Leader to Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships
May 19, 2016
The Obama administration has appointed a transgender individual to the President’s Advisory Council on Faith-based Neighborhood Partnerships, selecting Barbara Satin for a post along with two representatives of minority faiths. Satin, who was born a man but identifies as a woman, is an Air Force veteran, a member of the United Church of Christ and currently works with the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, according to CBN News.

-Yale introduces gender-neutral bathrooms amid national debate
May 22, 2016
Yale has become the latest college to introduce gender-neutral restrooms. The move comes as conservative and liberal legislators in states across the nation battle over where they believe their constituents have a right to pee. The measure was announced ahead of the Ivy League school’s 315th commencement, and included an interactive map of where to find 332 gender neutral bathrooms across the campus in New Haven, Connecticut. “Yale aims to be a leader on this front,” Tamar Gendler, dean of Yale’s faculty of arts and sciences, told the Associated Press. “Part of what is important about the all-gender bathroom project, and about putting it at the top of our commencement site, is this is about public signaling.”

And two items to just briefly mention:

-Now we have transgender kindergartens. Yes you heard me right.

It Takes A Village To Bully A Transgender Kindergartner

-And a transgender boy discusses having his period. No I am not making this stuff up folks.

Teen “Boy” Tells Us All About His Period Because, You Know … Oh Hell; I GIVE UP!

But what is happening in Australia is really becoming quite alarming, so let me use the rest of this article to highlight the trans-insanity occurring down under:

-Victorian government trials blind job applications to overcome employer bias
May 20, 2016
Have you ever gone for a job and been tempted to anglicise your surname, remove your female pronoun or delete your birth date in case it cruels your chances? For the first time in Australia, the Victorian government will trial removing personal details – such as name, gender, age and location – from job applications to rule out discrimination or unconscious bias.

-Labor plans to introduce a watchdog for gay and lesbian rights
May 21, 2016
Labor will spend $1.4 million to appoint a watchdog for gay and lesbian rights.

-Miranda Devine: Labor Party elite protect their own kids, not others
May 22, 2016
At least we know that Opposition Leader Bill Shorten and Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews are sensible parents. Both Labor politicians have chosen to send their children to schools where they will be protected from the sexual propaganda of the Safe Schools program. Andrews has made Safe Schools mandatory in Victorian schools and derides as “bigots” anyone who criticises its extreme teachings on “gender fluidity” and “heterosexism”. But, while he’s happy to inflict such nonsense on other people’s offspring, he sends his own children to Catholic schools where Safe Schools will never be part of the curriculum. Shorten sends his daughter to a local public school in Melbourne but she is too young to be exposed to Safe Schools until she hits high school.

-Marxist Roz Ward now Victorian school LGBTI adviser
May 23, 2016
Roz Ward, the hardline Marxist behind the contentious Safe Schools program, has been appointed to a high-level committee advising the Victorian government on education issues. With the taxpayer-funded sexual and gender diversity program having become a hot election issue, after the Greens and Labor pledged to boost funding, the Andrews Labor government appears increasingly committed to pushing an LGBTI agenda in the schoolyard. Ms Ward, already a director of the Safe Schools Coalition Victoria, has joined the education reference group set up to provide advice on the government’s LGBTI education priorities and identify new ways to improve equality for gay and transgender youth in schools.

-Are you Mr, Ms or Mx?
May 23, 2016
Government departments facing a July 1 deadline to comply with new federal gender guidelines are introducing new categories alongside male and female on forms and advising staff to refrain from assuming a person’s gender based on their name. Thousands of voters updating their personal electoral details before this year’s federal election have been given an option to list their gender as unspecified, as part of a broader push to eradicate gender-based assumptions.
The Australian Electoral Commission has also recently started accepting Mx as a title, with a default gender of indeterminate. This year’s census on August 9 will be the first where people are provided the option to identify as male, female or “other”.

There you have it folks: my daily dose of trans-madness. And if all this is not in your schools, your communities, your bathrooms, etc, just wait – it will be very soon indeed. You have been warned.

  • Thanks Bill. Keep up the good work.
    Regards
    John Abbott

  • These changes are being bulldozed through at an unprecedented rate and it’s looking increasingly perilous for adherents to the truth and Christians.

  • Decades ago when most people were sleeping big time, I warned about where the homosexual activist agenda would take us. Most folks did not care or did not want to hear.

    And things have changed?

  • I can only wonder what my options will be when I get to send my daughter to school when she gets to that age. What is one supposed to do? I’ll have to start saving up now to send her to the same school as Daniel Andrew’s kids…

  • I’ve always considered the Australian to be a sensible, down-to-earth, no-nonsense kind of person; with a mix of dry humour and sparkling wit . What therefore has happened to the Ozzie character, to permit these atrocities in such a fine land? Years ago such ideas would have been hounded out of sight,…..same as in Britain….but it seems everyone has gone mentally limp. Is the world infected by some unknown brain disease?

  • The Equality and Human Rights Commissions have created nine protected characteristic based upon age, race, disability, beliefs, sexual orientation, gender, transsexuality, being married and being pregnant.

    If the government is determined to obliterate antithesis with regard to gender, why stop there? Why not obliterate it with regard to the other protected groups, such as the difference between blind and sighted, a two year old and ninety year old, a Fijian Chinaman and a Polish Inuit, a college professor and a mental deficient, or a Satanist and Christian? In fact all categories denoting identifiable distinctions are to be obliterated.

    Marxists have stolen our western nations and wish to create the Utopia of Pol Pot. And unless it is understood that history repeats itself if people do not learn their history, then the time of Tribulation is much closer than we think.

    In 1968, Francis Schaeffer wrote in his book, “The God who is there”, chapter four, ” ….”modern homosexuality is an expression of the current denial of antithesis. It has led in this case to an obliteration of the distinction between man and woman. So the male and the female as complementary partners are finished. This is a form of homosexuality which is part of the part of the movement below the line of despair. In much modern thinking, all antithesis and all the order of God’s creation is to be fought against – including the male- female distinctions. The pressure towards unisex is largely rooted here. But this is not an isolated problem; it is part of the world- spirit of the generations which surrounds us. It is imperative that Christians realize the conclusions which are being drawn as result of the death of absolutes.”

    The remarkable thing about Pol Pot who, as a young student, had studied Marxism in Paris,was his invisibility. It was only after he had gained absolute power that he revealed himself as the leader of the Khymer Rouge.

  • Probably people are helpless rather than asleep. Where is the power? As for the established churches, they are a broken reed.

  • The marriage of convenience between pantheist monism and Socialist dialectic materialism is bound to yield a human relationships ethic which, like the Coozbanian Foob from the Muppet Show, is “constantly evolving”. Ultimately “future shock” will become a “toxic shock syndrome”…

  • The Charlotte Observer presents the twisted logic being used by those promoting this evil. A bit of cut/paste, but it needs to be shown what is actually being said by the media.
    “The measures follow a simple premise: Offer those who are uncomfortable a chance to be comfortable, but give choice to everyone instead of taking it away from some.”
    ..(that) Kentucky district and others have discovered something else that’s instructive, by the way: There have been no incidents involving locker rooms and bathrooms because of transgender policies. It is, eventually, a non-issue.”
    This is what the Obama administration nudged the rest of the country toward Friday. Yes, the thought of male genitalia in girls’ locker rooms – and vice versa – might be distressing to some. But the battle for equality has always been in part about overcoming discomfort – with blacks sharing facilities, with gays sharing marriage – then realizing that it was not nearly so awful as some people imagined”
    Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh on Friday excoriated the Charlotte Observer for running an editorial telling school-aged girls to overcome their “discomfort” of seeing “male genitalia” in locker rooms, should transgender bathroom laws be enacted. Mr. Limbaugh accused the newspaper of hypocrisy, noting the Observer’s staunch advocacy when it comes to victims of sexual assault on college campuses.
    “So you young women — you girls and adult women — who are being told every day by people like the Charlotte Observer that you are likely to be raped on any American college campus you choose, are now being told, ‘Get over your fear of the male genitalia if you happen to spot it in a bathroom,’” he said.
    Mr. Limbaugh said transgender bathroom access is not about civil rights, but rather “blowing up centuries of tradition” and the culture upon which America was founded.
    “Everybody knows this is just yet another vehicle that extreme liberals are using to undermine and overthrow and transform the founding culture of the United States,” he said.

  • Keep the updates coming Bill: well done.

    As has been said by many of us, parents do have the option to homeschool their children and while this is not the only reason, it is a valid one. I would like to make clear that I am not trying to significantly de-value the effort teachers make in the classroom, as many parents send their children to school and we do need good teachers there. However I do believe that parents can give their children a better education themselves.

    Homeschooling comes with its own challenges, but as a society increasingly moves away from the Scriptures and from God, we all need to consider what cost we personally are prepared to enter into and what we value.

  • Sickening.

  • Philip, I am sure you would agree that society has slowly been conditioned to tolerate a level of discomfort toward wickedness that would have shocked people twenty -and certainly fifty- years ago. This has been achieved through soft conditioning – through film and the mass media.

    However, in recent years, the dark forces have become more blatant and emboldened to break down any last remaining vestiges of discomfort .
    It is not just homosexuals and transsexuals who are forcing us to feel comfortable with wickedness, but transsexual paedophiles, for whom childrens’ showers and bathrooms will be an open door.

    B4U -ACT are a pro – paedophile group in America, who wrote a letter stating,
    A broader examination of the facts demonstrates that pessimism as a professional response to paedophilia and hebephilia is unjustified and leads to serious undesirable consequences.
    People who are attracted to children or adolescents can and do contribute positively to their communities and to society….….inaccurate stereotypes lead to dehumanization. As the stigma article notes, “people who are stigmatized experience social death when others in society hold attitudes and behave in ways to turn the stigmatized person into an ‘other,’ or a non-person…..
    If stigma is primarily psychological, then eradicating it may involve psychotherapy to help patients boost self-esteem……If it is more of a social construct, the way to fight it is through awareness campaigns to change public opinion and policies……And if stigma is a moral issue, then it may be necessary to advocate for basic human rights…..”

    Homosexual activist, Dr Eric Anderson of Winchester University is one of those who signed the above letter,

    He also heads the list of a group called the Outlist at Winchester, where he says,

    ‘Things that we consider private, are things which we stigmatize – things that we are ashamed of. And as we have a greater awareness of sexual diversity, people coming out the closet, and we are moving to say, “Hey, this is no different to heterosexuals and that we should have the same rights and the same benefits”,

    One of the lesbian students says that she feels uncomfortable showing her work to a tutor who might not be sympathetic to LGBT issues.

    Stephen Fry, another emboldened homosexual says that it is not the mental health of gays that is the problem but that of the rest of the nation who continue to reject homosexuality. In Fry’s eyes theirs’ is a form of mental illness, requiring psychiatric treatment, in order to overcome their discomfort and anxieties about homosexuality and presumably all the other LGBTQIXYZ orientations.

    Whilst parents are being made to feel comfortable with their children being sodomised, queer educationists continue to use art and drama to groom the children into every darker areas.

    Winchester University in the UK, through the use of sound and the body are leading children to bypass the mind into the demonic and sexual.

    This is the brainchild of another homosexual at Winchester University, Yvon Bonenfant
    www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZE_Y4fjcXM

    He contributes to a site called Soundstudies which states:
    The queer body is the site of sounds that engage pleasure, repression, rage, isolation, always somehow outside of dominant language……How do marginalized peoples use sound and the body to express liberation, objectification, joy, and struggle?

  • I expressed my views to a group of mostly women known to me personally that first off my grandson will never use a public bathroom alone and that having been assaulted in a bathroom, I personally know these laws are unsafe. Its OK I got away from the guy – he was believed by the employees and protected, and I was met with: oh that’s too bad dear, but you are a bigot.

    There is no sense or logic – this is truly a case of reprobate minds. Their frantic need to reject God trumps any common sense. Their hatred of Christians and Jews. Antisemitism is really ramping up here in the US – seems to make them froth at the mouth. There is no hope for parental rights, common sense, help for confused and anxious children, actual educating in public schools, or anything making sense from the government.

    The US is done militarily, morally, financially bankrupt. It didn’t take a major disaster, just a love of sin. I am sure I would be totally lost if I were not a Christian.

    I participated in the boycott. I like target but do not shop there. I pray and study continually. I mourn for the next generation of gay men who are heading towards fifty percent HIV infections, and untreated a death sentence for transgenders who suicide at twenty times the rate of other groups, for the loss of intact family units.

    But I praise God for the new Christians in the middle east, china, korea. There is a revival happening just not here! Trying to obey, to keep Christ first in my life until He returns for us.

    I don’t know what else to do and I am tired, tired of this world. Maybe that is part of God’s plan too.

  • Keep up the good work Bill. Many Christians are listening to your warnings. In Australia though, I think that a uni-sex toilet usually can be locked from the inside so shouldn’t be a problem. But a change room which should only be used for either males or females is obviously a danger with transgenderism.

  • Victorian government trials blind job applications
    Gee! If they do that, I wonder how they will achieve their quotas of females and ethnics.
    Mind you, deleting your age wouldn’t make a great deal of difference, if you are going to list when and where you were educated, and the positions you held at work.

  • Yes quite right Malcolm. But education and positions held will likely not mean much to them! So will the AFL no longer be able to know the gender of those they are seeking to hire? And can octogenarians apply for a job with them? Can Abdul Muhammad apply for a Baptist Sunday School job? The list is endless.

  • Woe unto them who call good evil, and evil good.

  • Victorians, last chance to email all Victorian politicians before the Infant Viability Bill is (presumably) debated in parliament tomorrow. This is easily done via www.family.org.au/component/elookup/?task=selectEmailPoliticians&Itemid=487 (and clicking on the “E-mail members of parliament” button.

  • The LGBTQIXYZs say that all they want is equality: the right to be considered normal, just like everyone else. But if they become like the rest of us they will become invisible. Society will be blind to their difference.

    And what makes them different? It is that they have been prepared to go outside the norms of conventional morality, to be at the very cutting edge of creating a diverse and complex society.
    www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJUdnhQ8PYE

    They oppose heterosexual homogeneity with homosexual heterogeneity!
    Queers, like Peter Truong and Mark Newton though claiming “We’re a family just like any other family,” do not want to lose their freedom to be more sexually adventurous with a wider repertoire of sexual behaviour, less bound by the strictures of traditional morality, and more experimental in terms of their relationships.

    So how is the rest of society to be blind to the sexual orientation, disability, gender, age, belief , sanity and marital status etc of job applicants, whilst allowing the sexual deviant, pervert, rapist, paedophile, insane and murderer like John Hirst who hacked his landlady to death with an ax , to maintain their distinctive identity?

    www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKsLcxJ2shU

    The answer is simple. Equality is achieved by society conforming to queer ideology and pink law. We all become as blind, perverted and murderous as they are. That is the only way equality and yet diversity will be achieved. And if we refuse to become as liberated as they are, we will be forced to do so through oppression and terror, just as the French were from 1793- 94.

    But it is best when it comes from the horses mouth:

  • According to his piece, “beyond equality”, Peter Tatchell wants to be queer, liberated from conforming to hetero lifestyle norms but simultaneously he seems to want us all to be queer like him, which cancels out queer difference or even superiority. To a heterosexual, same-sex sexual experimentation is shameful. Get over it. Most people are happy to let queer people be queer but expect the same courtesy in respect of their own proclivities. Plus are the claims of sexual liberation for all purely academic and cerebral rather than reality in his case?

  • I’ve been wondering what will happen with ‘boys’ only and ‘girls’ only schools in future?

  • Rachel, when you say that Tatchell’s article, Beyond Equality cancels out queer difference or even superiority, that is not correct. For what he says is, ” In many ways, our transcending of heterosexual mores is a positive and immensely liberating experience. Compared with most straights, queers tend to be more sexually adventurous with a wider repertoire of sexual behaviour, less bound by the strictures of traditional morality, and more experimental in terms of relationships………

    We have lots of insights that can contribute to the enrichment of heterosexuals and the betterment of society.

    Compared with most straight people, for example, lesbians and gay men are more willing to transgress the boundaries of traditional masculinity and femininity. As a result, gay men tend to be less macho and more in touch with their emotions. This gives them a sensitivity and creativity which has enabled them to make a disproportionate contribution to the arts and the caring professions. Lesbians are usually less reliant on men, and more independent and assertive, than their hetero sisters. Hence their pioneering contribution to women’s advancement in previously all-male occupations……..

    The assimilation of queers is not just bad for lesbians and gay men. It is also indirectly against the interests of straights. Mere equalisation of the law perpetuates the sex-negative status quo, which hurts them as well as us. Everyone would benefit from a more sexually enlightened culture.

    The absurd laws against prostitution and pornography illustrate this point…….It is not good enough to only seek an end to the way gay porn is more strictly censored than straight porn. …….What is required is a revision of the laws against pornography in their entireity”

    Tatchell believes that same sex sex is superior in every way.

  • Hi Bill. Been reading you for about a year. I am a 61 year old grandmother from Oregon, which is a very liberal state in USA. In fact, our unelected governor (She replaced our corrupt governor last year, who was thrown out of office) is the ” first proud bi sexual governor in history.” I saw all this coming in the 80’s, when I was involved with Oregon Citizens Alliance, a group formed by a dedicated Christian, Lon Mabon. We worked hard to inform people about LGBT activism. Back in those days, I was able to have a civil and open discussion with friends and family without vilification! Eventually though the homosexual activists wrecked their havoc with media compliance, and Lon Mabons reputation was ruined. The OCA disbanded and although throughout the last 30 years we have had groups try again, nothing has really taken off. So here we are, 30 years later and all we warned about is coming true. The Man/Boy Love Association is salivating to lower the age of consent. When I bring this up, people are shocked. “This will never happen.” Sure, I say, sure. You’ll see. It’s next.

  • What if an adult identified as a child – would it still be classed as paedophilia if they had sex with a child? Or vice versa….How will the law be applied now that Pandora’s Box has been opened?

  • Exactly Jo; why stop at gender, there are all the other protected characteristics listed by the Equality and Human Rights Commissioners (EHRC): age; disability; belief; gender; homosexuality, transsexuality, (same sex) marriage and (including transgendered man) being pregnant.

    There is absolutely no doubt that these Marxist, EHRC criminals will introduce yet more ways the disturbed and mentally will be free to “leverage” and identify themselves and thereby terrorize the rest of society who of course will not be accorded the same human rights of self – identification.
    Sadly Queen Elizabeth 11 has allowed herself to be deceived by the EHRC and will impose anti discrimination legislation on 54 Commonwealth countries.
