What you probably won't hear is that my state representatives voted on two other … Continue reading Gender Politics Update
I met Rene Jax last week, and I'm lucky I did. Not many people could be full of good humor after a 24-hour cross-country plane/train/bus trip, but Rene was. That's all the more remarkable considering that she was in town to talk about "gender identity."

I was interested to see … Continue reading Alternate ESPN headline: WNHL allows Woman to play in League!
Cardinal Borusa: As I believe I told you long ago, Doctor, you will never amount to anything in the galaxy while you retain your propensity for vulgar facetiousness.

At Chicks on the Right we have the story of another success story in woman's sports: The Alaska Schools Activities Association recently implemented a policy which allows each school to decide if transgender athletes can compete with the gender of their choice. There’s no general rule. The problem is, some schools don’t even require that … Continue reading Cause and Effect Girls Track Edition
