Five items in total…

“Transphobic’ is the gender-bending counterpart of ‘homophobic.’ Both are widely used to stigmatize critics of LGBTQ lifestyles by conflating disagreement with irrational fear.” – Peter LaBarbera, “Transgender man publicly rips his daughter, MSNBC host, as transphobic” – LifeSiteNews, June 16th, 2017.

“In the real world, public indecency is a crime. No man can walk down the street and expose himself to women. But in the military, we’re going to say this is the price of ‘inclusivity?’… The moral landmines left behind by Obama are about to detonate – and in 15 days, when America officially rolls out the red carpet for a group of emotionally unstable recruits, the effects will be catastrophic.” – Tony Perkins, “The Army’s new shower policy: Bare with us” – Family Research Council, June 15th, 2017.

“…I will not use the fake pro-nouns you prescribe ‘she’ or ‘her,’ nor will I use Ronan’s transvestite fantasy name ‘Morgane,’ even if the government gave him a birth certificate with that obviously feminine name, nor will I use your gender neutral alternative ‘the Complainant,’ as I believe to do so will mean I am cooperating with LGBT tyranny and falsehood. I am only open to using male pronouns when referring to biological males, or as a possible compromise if the Tribunal and Ronan’s counsel finds it acceptable, I can refer to Ronan in this process as the ‘biological male’…” – Bill Whatcott, quoted in “Whatcott defies B.C. human rights tribunal effort to impose gender language tyranny” – Canadian Association for Free Expression, June 24th, 2017.

“From driver’s licenses to gender assignment on birth certificates, we need to fundamentally re-imagine the relationship between sex and gender. We need to move forward and join the growing number of countries that have legislated a right for gender self-determination. In 2012, for example, Argentina pioneered the first law for gender self-determination, allowing individuals to self-determine their gender identity and obliging government to respect this, including in its official documents (such as identity cards) and the health-care system (by providing free access to gender-affirmative medical care).” – Brenda Cossman, the director of the Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies, quoted by Jonathon Van Maren in “I’ve seen the future that transgender activists are fighting for… and it’s terrifying” – LifeSiteNews, June 22nd, 2017.

“LGBT activists have been galled by the Trump administration’s rollback of federal guidance advising school districts to let transgender students use the bathrooms and locker rooms of their choice. The Republican president also broke from Democratic predecessor Barack Obama’s practice of issuing a proclamation in honour of Pride Month… Kendall Bermudez, 21, from New Jersey, said she thought people might be afraid to come out this year… ‘But I think with all these people here, they’re going to show we’re fighting back and we’re proud of who we are,’ she said. ‘I think we’re going to overcome it and show Trump who’s boss, well, who’s the real boss’…” – Rebecca Gibia, “Some U.S. pride parades disrupted by protests” – Toronto Sun, June 25th, 2017.
