Five Transgender Bills Targeting Concerned Parents Awaiting Gov. Newsom’s Signature or Veto

The sexualization of California school kids is escalating to an ugly place

A teacher friend recently shared with me curriculum required by the school district for use in the early elementary classroom on “gender expression.” It is a video called “Expressing Myself. My Way.” The tag line on the video gives a little hint of the content: “Gender expression is how we choose to show the world where on the gender spectrum we identify. We can do that through clothing, makeup, jewelry, tone of voice, taking hormones, and more.”

The video is in cartoon with cute, lovable animal characters who at first glance look alike, but when they sing about their gender differences, the movie is promoting acceptance of abandoning the gender he/she was born with, and assuming a new identity.

The teacher friend and I discussed at length LGBTQ law in California, and the more current teaching of gender, trans and LGBTQ identities in the classroom.

I harkened back to 2011 when SB 48 by then-Senator Mark Leno (D-San Francisco) was passed and Gov. Brown signed it into law. It was very general in language, and required California schools to teach students about the contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans in social science instruction.

However, SB 48 also became the overarching catch-all for anything LGBTQ in education – and the left has been making the most of it, while simultaneously diminishing actual education, resulting in California students ranking 50th in literacy in the entire country.

Flash forward to 2023: Now the Legislature has passed five new LGBTQ and trans-specific bills, playing legal catch-up, given how much LGBTQ and trans lesson plans have made it into Kindergarten through 12th grade classrooms:

  1. Assembly Bill 957 by Assemblywoman Lori Wilson (D-Suisun City) and co-authored by Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco), a parent could lose custody for not “affirming” or agreeing to a child’s claims about gender identity, and be charged with child abuse. Perhaps even more disturbing, bizarre, and ironic, in the State of California where the policy of California public schools is to keep “gender” information hidden from parents, how could a divorcing parent even know if they are affirming their child’s “gender identity?”
  2. Assembly Bill 665 by Assemblywoman Wendy Carrillo (D-Los Angeles) would allow children as young as 12 years to consent to mental health treatment or counseling without parental approval or involvement.In California it is already law to allow a minor who is 12 years of age to consent to mental health treatment or counseling on an outpatient basis, or to residential shelter services, “if the minor is mature enough to participate intelligently in the outpatient services or residential shelter services, or if the minor is the alleged victim of incest or child abuse.”That law, Senate Bill 543 was authored by then-Sen. Mark Leno (D-San Francisco) in 2010, and sponsored by Equality California, the National Association of Social Workers California Chapter, Mental Health America of Northern California, and the Gay Straight Alliance Network. SB 543, ostensibly to help LGBT and homeless youth, was signed into law in 2010 by then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.Carrillo’s bill will remove the additional requirement that the child must present a danger of serious physical or mental harm to themselves or to others, or be the alleged victim of incest or child abuse – in order to consent to mental health treatment or counseling on an outpatient basis, or to residential shelter services.
  3. AB 5would require LGBTQ+ training for teachers in all of California’s public schools – not just sensitivity training, but training to to be used to target parents who aren’t properly affirming the chosen gender of their child. It is sponsored by The California Federation of Teachers.
  4. SB 407  a bill by Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco), would ensure that unless all potential foster parents are willing to “affirm” LGBTQ gender and sexuality in foster youth, and any gender transitioning, they will be prohibited by the state from being foster parents. Sen. Wiener introduced his bill during the Senate Human Services Committee in April saying, “We want to make sure we aren’t placing these children in homes where there is hostility towards them.” The “hostile” homes the Senator refers to are religious families. Sen. Wiener said foster youth who identify as LGBTQ need protection from physical and psychological abuse coming from non-affirming foster parents.
  5. Assemblyman Corey Jackson (D-Perris) authored Assembly Bill 1078 ostensibly to make it harder to “ban” school textbooks in California – but the “school textbooks” Jackson refers to are highly sexualized, and in many cases, just plain porn. Assemblyman Jackson says “AB 1078 is a bill that intends to combat the national Christian white supremacist movement which aims to ban books, school curriculum, and even more in our schools.” Assemblyman Jackson is using the tortured “national Christian white supremacist movement” to give cover for grossly inappropriate books:  The Globe reported on “Gender Queer: A Memoir” last year, a book found in school libraries across the country which has cartoon drawings of oral sex, masturbation, and describes how to use sex toys.Lawn Boy: featured on MSNBC’s Ali Velshi  Banned Books Club, Lawn Boy is billed as a “coming-of-age story,” but is filled with graphic sex acts between children. The interview with Lawn Boy author is just bizarre. The author insists he uses “course language” throughout the book, and not “graphic language.”More than 35 school districts in 20 states temporarily removed “Lawn Boy” from library shelves.Since then, many states have passed legislation addressing pornographic, obscene school textbooks and library books.Trans+: Love, Sex, Romance, and Being You: Amazon describes Trans+ this way: “A groundbreaking all-inclusive, uncensored, must-have guide for teens who are living in this world, who identify as transgender, nonbinary, gender non-conforming, gender fluid, or are questioning their gender identity or how they express themselves, and for their cis-allies and advocates.”The book contains 75 QR codes, marked as “resources” which take children to unbelievably graphic obscene sex websites. CRI posted a short video on Instagram showing where the links take children. Warning: video it contains obscenity and pornographic images. England says Trans+ is available in school libraries across the country.

This California sexual education curriculum also includes:

  • Kindergarten books that introduce 5-year-olds to families with members who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender.
  • First grade gender vocabulary lessons on words such as third gender, trans, queergender, non-binary, gender fluid, gender neutral, agender, bigender, and two-spirits.
  • Lessons for 1st graders that provide detailed descriptions of sex with these quotes such as: “The man’s penis goes inside the woman’s vagina,” and “sperm can swim out through the small opening in the man’s penis – and into the woman’s vagina.”
  • Pictures in a book for third graders showing a cartoon drawing of a penis ejaculating sperm while inserted into a vagina.
  • Lessons which teach third graders that sexual reproductive organs don’t always match a person’s gender.
  • Recommendations that fifth graders are taught sexual health lessons that must include examples of same-sex sexual activity. Students should not be separated by sex during these lessons to avoid “misgendering” students.
  • Books that introduce 10-year-olds to anal sex, and the slang for male and female genitals.

Assemblyman Jackson and other Democrat lawmakers continue to deceive when discussing textbook “book bans.” If the cartoon movie above about gender preferences is any indication of just how far the gender pushers will go to target very little children, lying about the books they are also pushing is a cakewalk.  Each of the books linked here also have cartoon drawings, clearly targeting kids, while illustrating various sex acts.

Schools have jumped way ahead of the law, which appears to be catching up this legislative session – out of legal need. And that is because parents are on to the very well-coordinated effort to include pornographic material in K-12 public schools.

California Kids Could Become ‘Wards of the State’ Under New Gender Affirmation Rule, Mom Warns: ‘Dangerous’

A California mom concerned about a new state measure requiring judges to consider whether a parent has affirmed their child’s belief that they are transgender during custody battles warned Sunday that the policy could have disastrous implications.

“This is the steady assault on family and children that we’ve been seeing this legislative session and throughout the past couple of years in California,” Nicole Pearson, a mom of three and a member of the newly-formed “Protect Kids California” group, told Fox News.

“If both parents are conservative, and they are not comfortable affirming their child, what does that mean? The way that we read the law is that both will be jeopardizing the child’s health, safety and welfare… does that mean that the state will find that both are endangering or neglecting or even abusing their child and remove custody from both parents? And if no one is available to step up and take custody of the child, that child becomes a ward of the state. 

“People need to be paying attention to what’s happening here in California,” she continued.

The California State Assembly passed AB 957 on Friday, dealing a blow to parental rights advocates like Pearson who warned the policy could jeopardize parental custody rights because they disagree with the child’s decision to identify with a gender that does not correspond with their biological sex.

Jonathan Zachreson, also a “Protect Kids California” activist, told Fox News the measure could be indicative of things to come across the U.S. at some point.

“What happens in California will not stay in California,” he said. “There’s efforts that we’re trying to do to help mitigate some of these efforts through some initiatives and, in particular, to protect children from reproductive harm.”

Zachreson joined “Fox & Friends” last Tuesday where, alongside “Protect Kids California activist Erin Friday, a Democrat, where he discussed these measures, particularly three proposed 2024 ballot initiatives to help “protect kids.” One would prevent minors from receiving gender-affirming care procedures or puberty blockers. Another would require schools to inform parents if their child elects to adopt a different gender identity other than the one corresponding with their biological sex.

The third bars biological males from competing in women’s sports.

Democratic California state Rep. Lori Wilson, who introduced the bill along with state Sen. Scott Wiener, said on the assembly floor, “Parents affirm their children, they have since the dawn of time. Typically it happens when their gender identity matches their biological gender.” She continued, later adding that it is parents’ “duty” to affirm kids’ gender identities.

Pearson called the measure “dangerous” and “unconstitutional” during her sound-off on Sunday, saying the policy might lead parents to ignore other options that could help their children suffering from gender dysphoria.

“There are over 9 million children in the state of California. What AB 957 says is that every single one of them who’s going through a divorce, whose parents are fighting over them, whose entire world is crumbling, their entire identity – not their gender identity – their entire identity is crumbling, that we as parents have to affirm that confusion… gender confusion, especially in this context, is a cry for help,” she said.

Child Psychiatric Association Refuses to Hear Scientific Evidence Critical of ‘Gender Affirming Care’

Slowly, it is becoming clear that the scientific data behind what is called “gender-affirming care” is sorely lacking. Consequently, several countries in Europe have hit the brakes on immediate social affirmation, puberty blocking, and surgeries in children.

Yet much of the American medical establishment (and the Biden administration) continues to resist changing treatment guidelines. Why? Because medical science in this sensitive field has been polluted by a fervent gender ideology that it not only resists considering contrary data but even the expression of differing opinions.

Case in point: In the past the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) declared that any interference with gender affirmation was in violation of the scientific “evidence,” and hence, wrong. From its 2019 “AACAP Statement Responding to Efforts to ban Evidence-Based Care for Transgender and Gender Diverse Youth” (my emphasis):

Research consistently demonstrates that gender diverse youth who are supported to live and/or explore the gender role that is consistent with their gender identity have better mental health outcomes than those who are not…

State-based legislation regarding the treatment of transgender youth that directly oppose the evidence-based care recognized by professional societies across multiple disciplines is a serious concern. Many reputable professional organizations, including the American Psychological Association, the American Psychiatric Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the Endocrine Society, which represent tens of thousands of professionals across the United States, recognize natural variations in gender identity and expression and have published clinical guidance that promotes nondiscriminatory, supportive interventions for gender diverse youth based on the current evidence base. These interventions may include, and are not limited to, social gender transition, hormone blocking agents, hormone treatment, and affirmative psychotherapeutic modalities.

The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) supports the use of current evidence-based clinical care with minors. AACAP strongly opposes any efforts – legal, legislative, and otherwise – to block access to these recognized interventions.

So what matters is the “current evidence,” right? Only if the data support the AACAP leadership’s gender ideology. Recently scheduled panels of reputable mental health professionals from Europe that would have explained the scientific reasons for desisting immediate gender affirmation were canceled by the AACAP. From the Washington Free Beacon story:

A top pediatric psychiatry organization has nixed at least three panels with leading European psychologists about Europe’s move away from chemical interventions for children with gender dysphoria, raising questions about the politicization of American medicine and underscoring a clinical divide between the United States and much of the world.

The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP), which sets practice guidelines for the field, rejected one panel in 2022 and two more this May on the advice of its “Gender Identity Committee,” whose co-chair, Aron Janssen, has described restrictions on puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones as an “effort to oppress.”…

The speakers planned to discuss the data that led Finland, Sweden, and England to abandon the more laissez-faire treatment model now dominant in the United States, according to emails and panel proposals reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon.

Murrieta Valley school board OKs policy to tell parents if children are transgender

In marathon session, trustees approve rules based on those adopted by Chino Valley school board

In a marathon meeting, the Murrieta Valley school board approved a policy Thursday night, Aug. 10, to notify parents if their children identify as a gender that doesn’t match their sex assigned at birth.

The vote was 3-2, with board members Paul Diffley, Nick Pardue and Julie Vandegrift voting yes. Nancy Young and Linda Lunn voted no.

The proposal, from Diffley and Pardue, is based on a policy adopted 4-1 by the Chino Valley Unified School District last month during a contentious and emotional meeting. Chino Valley’s policy was included as an example in the Murrieta school board agenda packet.

RELATED: Murrieta Valley school board could tell parents if their children are transgender

California Attorney General Rob Bonta announced an investigation Friday, Aug. 4, into potential legal violations raised by Chino Valley’s rules.

Pardue, the board’s clerk, is one of five conservative Christians elected to southwest Riverside County school boards in November and was backed by a conservative PAC.

The Murrieta Valley Unified School District board room — which holds about 147 people — was full well before the open session of the meeting began at 5 p.m. An overflow crowd was in the entryway. About a dozen law enforcement officers stood by. It took hours to get a vote, which came about 10:30 p.m.

Young, who defeated a candidate backed by a conservative PAC in the November election, said Wednesday, Aug. 9, that she is “adamantly opposed” to the potential policy.

“Its illegal,” she said. “It’s a violation of Ed Code and state law and discriminates.”

Young cited the risk of lawsuits or a civil rights investigation by the state, as well as the stress the policy would cause to transgender students, who she said have “a suicide rate that is four times the suicide rate” of other students.

An American Academy of Pediatrics article states that “nearly 25% to 30% of transgender adolescents report attempting suicide during their lifetimes,” and mentions a second study showing that “45% of 18- to 24-year-old transgender people had attempted suicide in their lifetimes.”

Young said she had received about 10 emails from students, teachers and parents by Wednesday — all opposed to the policy.

“Most agenda items get zero emails,” she said.

While school board posts are officially nonpartisan, some trustees are using their positions “as a platform for airing their political grievances,” Young said.

Murrieta resident Lane McKeever, who will soon have three grandchildren in Murrieta Valley schools, said before the meeting that she supports the proposed policy and is “opposed to teachers trying to take the place of parents.”

McKeever said her son struggled with depression while in school, and she was informed by a teacher.

“Parents get to know everything,” McKeever said.

Stephanie Young, a Murrieta resident and district teacher, attended the meeting to oppose the potential policy and support transgender students. Young has a 17-year-old son who is trans.

“There’s gonna be kids who feel like nobody cares,” she said.

Stephanie Young thought the policy was likely to be adopted.

More than 60 people said they intended to speak at Thursday night’s meeting, most of them regarding the parental notification proposal. Board members wavered on whether to limit speakers to two minutes apiece, but eventually voted to let everyone speak for the usual three minutes.

By the time all speakers had finished their comments about three hours later, roughly 30 had voiced support for a policy to inform parents, but nearly as many spoke against it.

Staff members spoke on behalf of Republican Assemblymembers Kate Sanchez, who represents Temecula, Murrieta and parts of Orange County, and Bill Essayli, who represents several western Riverside County cities. Both support such a policy.

“The reality is, sex cannot be changed” said Chloe Cole, an activist and “former trans kid” who said she identified as transgender from age 12-16. She backs the proposal.

Rudi Krause began his comments with a song about what he called the gay agenda.

“The rainbow flag must be removed from all schools, government and institution,” he said after the song. He later said: “No heterosexual parent wants a homosexual child.”

Alexandra Galeano spoke after her 12-year-old-daughter, both in opposition to the policy. Galeano said and said that if her child went to her teacher before her, “I would question, ‘What have I done wrong?’”

Rachel Dennis, a local pastor, spoke against the policy.

“I am happy that I am not the first adult to stand up to speak on behalf of at-risk kids,” said Dennis.

“Left-handedness used to be considered wicked by Christians,” she said.

After Dennis received a loud reaction from the audience, school board member Lunn said she had “been extremely impressed” with audience reaction so far and asked speakers to continue.

Robert Garcia, the school board president in the Jurupa Unified School District in Riverside County, also spoke.

“I’m here representing what is right,” said Garcia, who said he’s a veteran who served in Operation Desert Storm.

“The reason we served is so that everybody can have their freedom,” he said.

“We get caught up in the politics and the personal agendas,” Garcia said. “I think we’re all better than that.”

Joseph Komrosky, board president in the neighboring Temecula Valley Unified School District, attended the meeting, but did not speak publicly.

Several Murrieta Valley students and recent alums spoke.

Corinne Smith, 17, the senior class president at Murrieta Valley High School, referred to other school districts that have adopted similar policies and asked supporters: “If your friends jumped off a bridge, would you?”

“If students choose to talk to a trusted adult before their parents, it is for a reason,” she said.

Other speakers included teachers, parents — some with LGBTQ+ children — and other community members.

“It isn’t by any means an attack, or do we want it to be, on the LGBTQ community,” Diffley, the board president, said of the proposal.

“To me the importance of the bond between student and family, mother and father, is paramount,” he said, and it supersedes anything else in school. However, Diffley agreed that there are some parents “who may beat their kids.”

Attorney Dina Harris discussed the proposed policy.

Parents Rally in Sacramento Against California Bills They Say Push ‘Transgender’ Agenda

A group of advocates gathered Tuesday near the California state Capitol in downtown Sacramento to rally against three proposed state laws that they say push a “transgender ideology” and limit the rights of parents.

These advocates claim Assembly bills 665, 957 and 223, if passed into law, would adversely affect the rights of parents and guardians who believe “children’s natural bodies are perfect.” They also argue that these proposed bills will make non-affirming your child’s gender identity “child abuse” in California. Opponents of the proposed legislation have circulated these claims on social media sites.

Proponents of the bills say these laws would ensure mental health services for youths; include a child’s gender identity as part of the health, safety and welfare of the child in custody cases; and limit access to paperwork to change gender or sex identifiers for anyone younger than 18.

The California Senate Judiciary Committee had scheduled a hearing Tuesday afternoon for AB 957 and AB 223. The committee has scheduled a hearing on June 20 for AB 665.

Erin Friday is a lawyer and a member of a group called Our Duty. She said she is the mother of a child who used to think she was transgender.

“You as a parent can be deemed abusive if you refuse to medicalize your child,” Friday said at a news conference. “If you refuse to poison your child with cross-sex hormones. If you refuse to stop the natural body growth called puberty. If you refuse to remove your child’s healthy breasts or genitals.”

Mental health services for youths

AB 665 would change an existing law that allows minors 12 and older to receive mental health counseling or therapy without parental consent. This bill would align the existing laws by removing the additional requirement that the minor must present a danger of serious physical or mental harm to themselves or to others, or be the alleged victim of incest or child abuse.

It contains no language that would allow school mental health professionals to remove children from the custody of their parents or guardians, according to an assessment by the Associated Press. AB 665 does not authorize any gender-affirming surgeries without parental consent.

“This bill makes no changes to the processes of the child welfare system in California and no changes to the processes of removal,” Assemblywoman Wendy Carrillo, D-Los Angeles, sponsor of AB 665, told AP.

Adam Vena said he lost all custody of his 5-year-old son, whom he has not seen in more than two years, because the child’s mother has been socially transitioning their child. He said he has paid for his son’s medical insurance and, until recently, paid for his tuition. But he refuses to affirm his child’s gender as a girl.

Vena said he did not support this and communicated his concerns to the mother — he said in light of his views, the court considered him “abusive” and issued a restraining order against him.

“This is crazy. The parent who wants to change the child’s perfect body is abusive,” Vena said at the Capitol. “My personal beliefs and my First Amendment rights were squashed, because I didn’t want my 3-year-old son to wear a dress.”

Child custody cases

Assemblywoman Lori Wilson, D-Suisun City, who introduced AB 957, told the San Francisco Chronicle that California has a duty to “draw a line in the sand” against anti-trans efforts that have gained traction in other states. AB 957, which would apply in child custody cases, would include a parent’s affirmation of the child’s gender identity as part of the health, safety, and welfare of the child.

Abigail Martinez said she lost custody of her teen daughter, who was placed in foster care. She said she wanted her daughter to get the mental health treatment she needed instead of “poisoning her body with testosterone.”

“I cry for the parents who will be like me, helpless to help their children,” Martinez said at the news conference. “I lost custody of my daughter when she was just 16, because I refused to call her a male name. That was my crime, a name and not pronouns.”

Martinez said a school counselor convinced the court that her child would be harmed because she did not believe her daughter was a boy. She said her child’s transition made their mental state of health worse, and her child took her life at the age of 19 in Pomona.

Transgender youth privacy law

Jennifer Kennedy, a mother, a lawyer and a member of Our Duty, said these bills are just like “train cars stacked” and working together against children, parents’ relationship with their children and the rights of parents.

She argued AB 223 is not necessary, because court documents are not easily accessible. Kennedy said this proposed law is intended to protect other adults — such as appointed guardians — from going into court to change the gender markings of children without the child’s parents knowing.

“They’re trying to create a problem in order to hook up this next train car in the train of all these anti-parent and anti-family bills,” Kennedy said about AB 223. “You have to have a good reason to shut off public access to public records. There’s no good reason here.”

AB 223 would seal petitions and related paperwork to change gender or sex identifiers for anyone younger than 18. Assemblyman Chris Ward, D-San Diego, who authored AB 223, has said the proposed privacy law gives transgender youth “the confidence to navigate their gender identity without fear of retaliation” from someone who discovers that information in the public record. This bill would require the court to limit access to these records to specified individuals, including the minor, the minor’s parents, and their attorneys.”

Arienne Adamcikova, 54, of San Francisco, attended Tuesday’s gathering in support of the parents groups. She said she is a liberal, progressive parent of a detransitioned son and an ally of the “LGB community.”

The mother said she had told her son he was allowed “to be anybody he wants to be’‘ and was free to dress however he liked and love whomever he chooses, but he wasn’t allowed to change his body.

Report: Teen Boy Who Identifies as Transgender Brawls with Girls at California High School

Video shows a male student, who reportedly identifies as transgender, brawling with teen girls at Martin Luther King High School in Riverside, California, FOX 11 Los Angeles reported on Thursday. 

Students and parents told the outlet the transgender student in the video “has a history of erratic and uncomfortable behavior,” according to the report. Students said that while fights are an every-week occurrence at the school, the last two fights involved this same transgender student.

“He’s [in the] girls’ locker room, using girls’ restrooms,” MLK student Aiden Vermeir alleged. “He spit on my friends that are girls, females. He shows his genitals in the locker room.”

One parent, who spoke anonymously to the news outlet, said she pulled her teen out of school because of safety concerns. She also said she complained to the school but did not receive a proper response.

“Everything was on the hush hush. They did not want to talk to us about it,” the parent said. 

A mother of a female sophomore, who also wanted to remain anonymous, told the outlet the school should keep the  transgender student away from girls’ spaces because he “presents as masculine.”

The Riverside Unified School District released a statement to the outlet, saying the student at the center of the controversy no longer attends the school. 

“A video depicting an altercation involving students at Martin Luther King High School has been widely circulated on social media this week. This matter has had the full attention of Riverside Unified School District administration and is being addressed expeditiously,” the district said in the statement.

Carlson: Transgenderism Is the ‘Most Dangerous Extremist Group in the United States — There’s No Mistaking That’

Friday, FNC host Tucker Carlson reacted to an attack on former University of Kentucky swimmer Riley Gaines, who spoke out against transgender females competing in female collegiate athletics at San Francisco State University a night earlier.

Carlson proclaimed that the left, specifically the Biden administration, promoted the transgenderism movement with what he described as “religious extremists.”

Transcript as follows:

CARLSON: This is the saddest and at the same time, by far the most hopeful day on the Christian calendar. There was a time not so long ago when the overwhelming majority of Americans observed Good Friday. They got up, they went to church, they talked about it at the office and at dinner that night, it was part of their culture, that’s no longer true.

Tonight, you wonder how many Americans even know it’s Good Friday. So after hundreds of years, this has finally become a non-Christian country, but it’s not a secular country. You know sometimes people call it that, but they are wrong. There are no secular countries.

Every country has a religion because every person has a religion, even if it’s atheism. Everybody worships something. We’re born that way. We can’t get away from it. So what is America’s religion now?

Well, as it happens, we have video. This is from St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Fargo, North Dakota. It was taken on April 2nd. That was the first Sunday after the mass killing in Nashville in which three adults and three children were murdered at a Christian school for being Christians.

In the old America, Christian pastors would have preached about this. They would have acknowledged the evil on display, and they would have prayed for those who’d been killed. A form of that is still happening today, but the roles have been inverted.

In America’s new religion, the victims are not the children who died in Nashville. The victim is the woman who killed them, because Audrey Hale called herself transgender. She was, by definition, a holy martyr. Watch this Pastor in a formerly Christian church compare Audrey Hale to Jesus.


MICAH LOUWAGIE, PASTOR, ST. MARK’S LUTHERAN CHURCH IN FARGO, NORTH DAKOTA: Leaders were looking for any excuse, valid or not, to crucify Jesus, and they found that reason.

It’s baffling to me that someone’s existence can be so threatening that people decide they need to be controlled, that they need to have laws made against them or even worse, that the people that they find to be so threatening should die.


CARLSON: So Audrey Hale’s very existence as a transgender person was so threatening to authorities that they killed her just as the Pharisees killed Jesus. Her death had nothing to do with the fact she just murdered six people. That was the pastor’s sermon at St. Mark’s in Fargo.

So it’s pretty clear that St. Mark’s Lutheran Church is no longer a Christian church. So what is it now? Well, it’s a transgenderist church, one of many.

Transgenderism is this country’s fastest growing religion. Like many faiths, its theology features a supernatural transfiguration. The moment a person is transmogrified from one sex to another.

Converts to this faith, abandon their old lives and embrace an entirely new self, their former identities no longer exist. They’re dead names.

But here is one big difference, transgenderists do not believe in the god of monotheism. They believe that they themselves are god, with the power to control nature. And if you think about it, this should be a concern because it’s a recipe for extremism.

People who believe that they are god tend to react very badly when told that they’re not. So if you’re running the government, and you wanted to prevent violence in your own country, you would be very concerned about the growth of a cult like this.

But the Biden administration is not concerned at all. In fact, it is cheering this cult on. Watch Joe Biden’s spokeswoman, just days after the massacre of children in Nashville, explain that when transgenderists “fight back,” she approves.


KARINE JEAN-PIERRE, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: Fourteen states have now banned gender-affirming healthcare, while some of these laws are currently blocked by Courts.

This is a dangerous, a dangerous attack.

This is awful news. Well, let’s be very clear about that. LGBTQI+ kids are resilient, they are fierce, they fight back, they’re not going anywhere, and we have their back. This administration has their back.


CARLSON: “They are fierce. They fight back. This administration has their back.”

So this is coming on the heels just days after a massacre in which children were murdered, apparently in response to laws against chemical and surgical castration of children.

So the White House is not decrying that. The White House is endorsing it as clearly as it possibly could and that’s why no one from the Biden White House is visiting the grieving Christian families in Nashville.

Instead, today, Kamala Harris went to Nashville to promote three Democratic Party legislators who led a riot at the State House, a riot designed to promote, yes, the cult of transgenderism.

So consider the message here. We’re on your side and knowing we’re on your side, you, the mentally ill who may be armed are the victims, and you are being genocided. Your very existence is at stake.

In other words, making paranoid people on the edge more paranoid. So fight back. You are fierce.

This is not the message to give to religious nuts with weapons, and particularly not this group of religious nuts with weapons. This is a group that has for years been committing acts of violence at rates much higher than you would expect across a cross-section of the population.

To give a few examples, last year, a trans girl tried to assassinate Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh at his home. Then a self- described nonbinary shooter, also a member of the cult, murdered five people at a Colorado nightclub.

In 2019, a trans teenager shot nine people in a high school, killing one, that was in Denver. In 2018, a mentally ill transgenderist shot up a Rite- Aid distribution center in Aberdeen, Maryland. That massacre killed four.

So you can see where this is going, and you shouldn’t be surprised by it. Mental illness leads to violence. This is a species of mental illness and there is no mental illness greater than the delusion that you are god and that is exactly what this cult teaches its adherents. You are god. You can change nature with your will, forget Biology.

Now with the endorsement of the Biden administration, the terrorism that is the inevitable result of this belief system is accelerating. Police just arrested a man called William Whitworth, he’s a transgenderist that uses the name Lily in the State of Colorado.

Apparently, he had a kill list and a manifesto. He was planning to attack three schools and churches and apparently some talk show hosts, too. So it would be nice to see this manifesto or the kill list, but of course, you can’t see it because the authorities are, as they have in Nashville, hiding it. Now, why are they hiding it? Because they have to.

When your religious views violate the unyielding laws of nature itself, you have no choice, but to hide things. You have to. Deception is mandatory, and it will soon be reflected in the law. That is already happening in Canada, which is in some sense the new California. If you want to know our future, look north, not west.

In Canada, transgenderism will soon be the justification for suspending all freedom of speech. A new law will ban speech that offends transgenderists near drag performances. So you can’t complain. Watch.


KRISTYN WONG-TAM, ONTARIO LEGISLATOR: The drag communities are done waiting for this government to take real action in effective ways, and so is the Ontario NDP.

The proposed legislation does two things and I will go through them. Firstly, it enables the Attorney General to create a 2SLGBTQI+ community safety zone to prohibit, within a hundred meters of the property, any homophobic, transphobic, act of intimidation, threat, offensive threats, offensive remarks, protest disturbance and distribution of hate propaganda within the meaning of the Criminal Code. It also comes with it a penalty of $25,000.00 if prosecuted successfully.


CARLSON: So here’s a rule of thumb that is worth tacking on your refrigerator because it explains so much. If the people who claim to be victims are working to oppress you, they’re not actually victims, they are oppressors.

And once again, with this cult specifically, that is inevitable, because at its core is a provable lie, defied and revealed by the unchanging laws of science.

We do not have the power to change our sex. It is in our DNA. It is in our bone structure.

You dig up a fossilized skeleton thousands of years later, and you can tell its sex. We can’t change that, much as we might want to. Much as we might feel deep sympathy for those who want to, we still can’t change it. That is true.

And so, of course, they have to criminalize your observing that it’s true because that is a challenge to the core of their faith. These are religious extremists on a jihad against the population, and in order to win, they have to force everyone to lie, period.

But there are always a few who refuse, no matter what to lie and one of those is Riley Gaines.

So last year, Riley Gaines was a collegiate swimmer at the University of Kentucky. During an NCAA championship, she and her teammates were forced to compete against a man called William Thomas.

Now, there’s been a lot of news coverage of William Thomas, but here’s the truth. Thomas had been a male swimmer at the University of Pennsylvania, and he had a lackluster swimming career, so he came up with a plan.

He decided to give himself a female name, and soon he started winning women’s swimming competitions. So what do you call that? Well, you call it cheating. That’s cheating and Thomas’ cheating was not a secret, it was obvious to everybody. But only Riley Gaines was brave enough to say something about it. She came on our show last July.


RILEY GAINES, COLLEGIATE SWIMMER: That night we watched Lia Thomas win a national title and blow all the other females completely out of the water.

And that next day we came back, and the mood had shifted to where people were mad. The girls, you know, there were tears, these poor 9th and 17th place finishers who missed out on being named an all-American.

There is extreme discomfort in the locker room. There’s, you know, kind of these grumbles.

CARLSON: Was he wandering around the women’s locker room?

GAINES: Yes, and that’s not something, you know, we were forewarned about, which I don’t think is right in any means changing in a locker room with someone who has different parts.


CARLSON: So you can probably tell just from that clip that Riley Gaines is not an ideologue. She’s not a political activist. She was a college swimmer and assumed that she would be just that, a college swimmer.

But she was forced into a place where she had no choice, but to tell the truth. She was not going to violate her own conscience. The story she told us was almost hard to believe in a supposedly rational country, but it was real, and because nobody else had the courage to stop this trend before it accelerated, similar things began to happen all over American sports and with predictable results.

In November, the National Hockey League sponsored an all-trans draft tournament. A male cross-dresser was allowed to compete against women. What do you think happened? Well, during the game, the man lightly chucked a woman into the boards and gave her a concussion. Yes, because he’s a man, she’s a woman.

In October, a North Carolina high school volleyball player suffered a significant head injury after another man dressed as a woman spiked the ball at her head. You can watch that on YouTube. It’s on video. It’s awful. But nobody should be surprised that it happened.

Nine years ago, a man called Fallon Fox declared himself a woman and competed in a mixed martial arts fight against a competitor called Tamikka Brents, who was a woman. In a total of 36 seconds on the mat, Fox fractured the bones of Tamikka Brents’ face and won the fight.

As Tamikka Brents later put it, “I’ve never felt so overpowered in my life, and I’m an abnormally strong female.”

Well, yes, because even an abnormally strong female, which she is, is no match for most biological men. Everybody knows that. It is measurable. We don’t need to guess. But almost nobody at this point, at this deeply contemptible point of cowardice in the West, almost nobody will say that because they’re afraid. But Riley Gaines will say that because she’s not afraid.

So last night, Gaines went to San Francisco State University to talk about her experiences in NCAA swimming. And Riley Gaines is not a hater. She is a measured, decent person who believes in logic and reason and finding common ground with people who disagree with her.

She does not think she is God, but that fact that she does not believe that she is god makes her a terrifying threat to the zealots who do believe they’re god. And so at San Francisco State last night, the zealots attacked her.

A mob surrounded Riley Gaines and prevented her from moving through the hallways. At one point, the thugs said they wouldn’t let her pass unless she paid them money. During the chaos, a man dressed as a woman, punched her several times.

The mob howled with rage, screaming, threats and obscenities. We’re not overstating. Here’s what it looked like.

Riley Gaines Assaulted by Trans Activists at San Francisco State University

Record-setting swimmer Riley Gaines, an outspoken critic of transgender athletes being permitted to compete in divisions they self-identify with, was violently assaulted at San Francisco State University following a speech on Thursday.

Turning Point USA and Leadership Institute invited Gaines to speak at an event on the SFSU campus exploring women’s athletics and the inequalities that female competitors could face against transgender opponents.

Gaines, a former NCAA swimmer from the University of Kentucky, was reportedly forced to barricade herself in a room for three hours for her own safety when student protesters became violent and unruly.

“She told me she was hit multiple times by a guy in a dress. I was shaking. It made me that mad. It makes me sick to feel so helpless about it,” Gaines’s husband, Louis Barker, told Fox News. “She was under police protection and was still hit by a man wearing a dress.”

Footage of the campus chaos was shared by Gaines on Twitter in the early hours of Friday morning showing trans activists berating her as security tries to escort the 12-time All-America swimmer to safety.

“The prisoners are running the asylum at SFSU…I was ambushed and physically hit twice by a man,” Gaines wrote in the tweet. “This is proof that women need sex-protected spaces. Still only further assures me I’m doing something right. When they want you silent, speak louder.”

In another clip taken by protesters, the mob of students and press can be heard demanding payment to let Gaines leave the safety of her barricaded room.

Gaines gained national recognition for criticizing the inclusion of male swimmers competing as women, notably Lia Thomas.

During the 2022 NCAA women’s championship, Gaines tied Thomas in the 200-yard freestyle event. Afterward, the University of Kentucky athlete shared the concerns of female athletes.

“I actually had a ton of Lia Thomas’ teammates reach out to me personally, and thank me for what I’m doing because this is something they deal with every single day,” Gaines said in an appearance with Senator Rand Paul (R., Ky.) on Fox. “But of course, they’re intimidated, they’re threatened, they’re emotionally blackmailed.”

Gaines denounced a court decision in early March compelling USA Powerlifting to permit transgender athletes to compete based on self-identity.

“We know testosterone has an effect on performance, outcome and strength. Men, on average and this is not opinionated, it’s a fact, men on average are taller, they’re stronger, more powerful, faster than women. Again, to deny that is denying science. We have so much data and scientific evidence that prove this,” Gaines said.

A series of clips documenting the bedlam was released throughout the night by the student newspaper.

Bills Would Let Transgender People Seal Name-Change Requests

SEATTLE (AP) — You can change your name, but in many states you can’t completely shed your old one — something that’s of particular concern to transgender people and that legislators in at least two states are trying to change.

A bill in Washington would allow gender expression and identity as reasons to seal, or keep out of the public record, a future petition for a name change. And a California bill would require the sealing of petitions by minors to change their name and gender on identity documents.

In states where such petitions aren’t sealed, transgender people can be susceptible to cyberbullying or even physical violence because their previous names, and by extension their lives, are an open book in the public record, advocates warn. Students, for instance, can and do easily find and share such records when they are looking for background on a new kid in town, one advocate noted.

Maia Xiao, a University of Washington graduate student, has changed her name in that state and said the publication of a transgender friend’s name-change records in an online forum led to relentless harassment, including hate mail. She wrote last summer to Democratic state Sen. Jamie Pedersen to urge reform.

“It feels very close to me,” said Xiao, who would not disclose the name of her friend, citing privacy. “I don’t live a very online life, but it’s really scary to know that something so personal can be so easily accessed by transphobic trolls who want to cause harm.”

Pedersen is sponsoring the Washington legislation, which passed the Senate this month with bipartisan support and is expected to also pass the House. The bill is modeled on laws in New York and Oregon and would also extend records privacy to refugees, emancipated minors and people who have been granted asylum.

Currently, only people subjected to domestic violence can have their name changes easily sealed in Washington. Some other states, including California, also make exceptions for victims of crimes like human trafficking, stalking and sexual assault.

“This seemed to me like a simple action that could go a long way in making transgender people a lot safer in our state,” Pedersen said.

Some officials and law enforcement officers worry that criminals who request a name change could escape accountability under the proposals. The Washington bill would allow courts to unseal a name change file if law enforcement had reasonable suspicions, and sex offenders and incarcerated people would still be ineligible for a sealed name change.

“This is not the intent of the bill, and such cases would be rare, but there needs to be procedures in place to prevent it,” Jennifer Wallace, executive director of the Washington Association of County Officials, said in an email.

The approaches in Washington and California contrast starkly with recent and mysterious moves in Florida and Texas to compile lists of trans residents using public records, and as lawmakers in at least 39 states consider a torrent of anti-trans bills.

Republicans’ “disturbing” requests for data on transgender residents in some of those states add urgency to his proposal, Pedersen said.

The office of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton last year requested data on how many people had changed the gender information on their driver’s licenses. The Texas Department of Public Safety found over 16,000 gender changes during the prior two years but didn’t turn over data because it could not determine the reason for each change.

In Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis asked state universities last month for data on students who had sought or received treatments for gender dysphoria. Neither Paxton nor DeSantis explained why they requested the data.

Harassment from such disclosures can especially target young trans people who struggle with mental health issues or gender dysphoria, advocates say. The same internet forum that Xiao said had targeted her friend came under fire last year for instances of doxxing trans people, or maliciously publishing their personal information online, and has been linked to suicides.

Peers may search students’ names as they move to a new middle or high school and can easily find and share court records related to their petitions for a name and gender change, said Kathie Moehlig, executive director of the San Diego nonprofit TransFamily Support Services. She approached California Assembly Speaker Pro Tem Chris Ward with the idea for the bill after students she advises brought the trend to her attention.

Many families with trans children aren’t even aware such records are public, Moehlig said.

“Somebody’s gender identity is an innate piece about them — it’s intimate,” she said. “They deserve the right to the privacy around their identity.”

The California bill, which was introduced last month and has not yet been scheduled for a hearing, would require the state to seal any petition filed by a person under 18 for a change to gender and sex or to gender, sex and name in identity documents. Also sealed would be documents from a petitioner’s court proceedings.

San Diego lawyer Clarice Barrelet, whose 11-year-old son is transgender, said simply plugging his name into a search engine shows his legal gender change.

He had insisted by age 6 that he should not be called a girl and would grow up to be a man, Barrelet said. He came out as transgender at age 8 and changed the name and pronouns he used in school, even before his mom petitioned the court for a legal change to his identity documents.

Barrelet said she thinks those records should be sealed for children and adults to better protect their privacy.

Sheriff Rejects Stricter Rules for Housing Transgender People in San Diego County Jails

Sheriff Kelly Martinez won’t implement a recommendation to tighten rules for booking transgender people into San Diego County jails that coincide with their gender.

The Citizens’ Law Enforcement Review Board, or CLERB, recommended last year that the current policy be revised “to mandate that an arrestee shall be taken to a facility that coincides with the arrestees’ gender identity.”

But in a letter released late Thursday, sheriff’s officials said they would not be changing the policy because no change is needed.

“The department believes CLERB’s desired outcome, properly booking and housing all transgender arrestees, has already been met,” they said. “Therefore, we will not be amending Field Operations Manual Policy 25.”

The letter was dated Jan. 31 and signed by Lt. Edward Greenawald of the department’s Division of Inspectional Services.

Greenawald also noted that the existing policy calls for deputies to “receive, evaluate, house and provide secure, safe and humane custody of all persons, including transgender, intersex and non-binary,” who are booked into San Diego County jails.

The policy says: “An arrestee should be taken to a facility that coincides with their gender identity.”

Greenawald said the suggestion to change “should” to “shall” also was rejected in part because most of the 48,000 people booked into county jails in 2021 were not arrested by sheriff’s deputies.

The proposed revision “would do nothing to redirect other agency arrestees, who account for roughly 75 percent of all bookings, effectively failing to ensure officers take arestees to a booking facility that aligns with their gender identity,” he wrote.

The review board made the recommendation last year, after The San Diego Union-Tribune reported on a lawsuit filed by a transgender woman who was severely beaten while being held in the Men’s Central Jail.

Kristina Frost said in her 2021 lawsuit that deputies placed her in a cell with three men despite the fact that she, her driver’s license and her public presentation and dress all identified her as a woman.

She was seated and asleep when she woke up to a beating, she said.

“Sadly — and foreseeably — one of the men in the cell viciously attacked Ms. Frost,” her federal complaint stated. “His closed-fist punches to Ms. Frost’s face resulted in serious bodily injuries, including a broken jaw, so far requiring two surgeries to repair.”

The lawsuit also alleged that Frost should not have been booked into custody, and that after the assault she was forced to wait up to 12 hours without medical care.

“She was in excruciating pain from her injuries the entire time she waited,” it said. “And because her jaw was injured, she could not eat food or even drink water while she waited.”

The Sheriff’s Department did not initially respond to requests for comment on the allegations. But hours after the November 2021 story was posted, officials issued a statement appearing to blame Frost for her injuries.

“The person who allegedly assaulted Miss Frost stated he was assaulted by Miss Frost first and stated he acted in self-defense,” department spokesperson Lt. Amber Baggs said at the time. “Additionally, Miss Frost declined to press charges.”

A settlement of her lawsuit is likely to add to the millions of dollars San Diego County taxpayers have spent in recent years to settle wrongful-death, excessive-force and other claims against the department.

According to court records, both the plaintiff and defendants agreed this week to a settlement proposed by the judge. Details will not be publicly disclosed until the county Board of Supervisors approves the payment.

“The settlement is conditioned on county board approval, which won’t happen until later this month,” said Trenton Lamere, one of Frost’s attorneys.

The decision is the latest spurning of the civilian oversight board by the newly elected sheriff, who was sworn in early this year after winning the November election.

Last month, Martinez rejected a recommendation to screen employees and others for illegal drugs when entering county jails as a way to reduce in-custody overdoses.

The department has been plagued with an escalating mortality rate, including fatal overdoses. Earlier this month, a veteran deputy was arrested for allegedly bringing cocaine onto jail property.

Martinez also declined to release internal reviews of critical incidents despite her campaign pledge to do so, and despite a recommendation from the oversight board.

The county Citizens’ Law Enforcement Review Board is a group of volunteers that examines complaints against sworn personnel at the sheriff’s and probation departments. It also investigates shootings by law enforcement officers and in-custody deaths.

Even though the board members are volunteers, the office is staffed by professionals and supervised by executive officer Paul Parker, a former police officer.
