“In fact, the main focus of Canada’s gay lobby in recent years has been demanding that taxpayers fund PrEP, an expensive HIV medication that gay men can take to reduce their risk of catching the virus during condomless sex. Experts are now, unsurprisingly, linking PrEP to a rise in drug-resistant gonorrhea. For many gay men, PrEP is nothing more than an aid to promiscuity, yet left-wing governments in Ontario, B.C. and Quebec have all started using precious health-care dollars to hand it out for free.” – Josh Dehaas, “I’m gay and I wouldn’t blame Doug Ford for avoiding Toronto’s Pride parade” – National Post, June 12th, 2018.

“Albertans can now choose between three options when specifying their gender on driver’s licences and other identity documents… People will be able to indicate male, female or X on all vital statistics records, including birth and death certificates.” – Cdn. Press, “M, F or X: Alberta offers third option for gender on identification documents” – The Post Millennial, June 8th, 2018.

“An official for the New England championships defended the move to allow stronger, faster, bigger boys to compete as girls. While noting that she feels bad for all the girls knocked out of the finals to allow the two transgenders to compete, CIAC executive director Karissa Niehoff said, ‘We do feel for them. Fully agree it doesn’t feel good. The optic isn’t good. But we really do have to look at the bigger issues that speak to civil rights and the fact this is high school sports’.” – Warner Todd Huston, “Two transgender athletes dominate girls at state track championships” – Breitbart, June 11th, 2018.

“A programme at a Swedish open-air swimming bath in Malmö that eliminated gender-separate areas to encourage transgender bathers has resulted in men taking the opportunity to stare at naked women… ‘They were in the showers, in the restrooms, in the locker rooms, and on the bathing bridges. The place was invaded by men, not by transgenders from what I could see. Everything felt incredibly unpleasant,’ said Jeanette Larsson, a lecturer in diversity issues, who recently attended the open-air bath.” – Chris Tomlinson, “Sweden: Voyeurs flock to newly gender neutral swimming pool to stare at naked women” – Breitbart, June 12th, 2018.

“Brownsburg Community School Corporation… put out a transgender policy document in January instructing staff to call students by their chosen names and pronouns… Kluge opted instead to address students by their last names to avoid either referring to his apparently several transgender students with pronouns and names of the opposite sex, or offending them by not doing as they wished despite its contradiction of reality… That wasn’t good enough. At the school board meeting, students accused Kluge of saying that transgender persons ‘are not an actual human being’ and ‘actively disrespect[ing]’ them for not using opposite-sex pronouns to describe them.” – Joy Pullman, “Indiana teacher: I was forced to resign because I won’t pretend boys can be girls” – The Federalist, June 14th, 2018.
