More toddlers declared transgender by their parents for not abiding by gender stereotypes.

I think Brad captures this history well:
After the U.S. Supreme Court legalized gay marriage nationwide in the landmark 2015 decision Obergefell v. Hodges, many believed the fight for gay rights would begin to wind down. Yet that didn’t happen. Instead, the LGBT-advocacy sector simply redirected its available staff, fundraising and rhetoric to other projects. …In a relatively short period of time, the gay-rights movement fused with more radical campus-based gender and identity-politics movements, to become the compound movement now known as “LGBTQ+”—lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, “queer” and more. Even many people within the movement now have trouble keeping up with all the new subcategories contained within that plus sign. …
None of these bizarre neologisms have any resonance to those of us who joined the gay-rights movement simply to affirm and protect the basic rights of people to be who they are and love who they choose without stigma or legal sanction. We’ve been forced to watch the simple moral logic of non-discrimination be transformed into a self-parodic alphabet soup of invented identities.
And worth repeating:
Update: Video at https://savejames.com/: “Mommy says I’m a girl.”
Horrying update on the James Younger, 7yr transgender boy story.
Look at this video where James says his mom put dresses on him, paints his nails, and *TELLS* him he’s a girl.

“I’m looking out for the best interests of James, my son. When James is with me, he shows no signs of wanting to be a girl when given the choice. Even when in female company, away from me, James rejects a female gender expression.”
Update: Judge Kim Cooks has now given Jeff Younger a say in his seven-year-old son James’s gender-transition process, but she has also placed a gag order on the father, forbidding him from discussing the case further. What’s troubling is that earlier this year, the same judge prevented Jeff Younger from getting a second opinion from an independent psychologist or psychiatrist on whether James has gender dysphoria.
"Every gender-dysphoric child deserves the right to grow up free to decide who he wants to be when he is ready to do so. I am grateful I grew up in a time when I had that chance."#ProtectJamesYounger https://t.co/LWPFe2MiOb

LGBTQ activists and media now fully support the view that a boy who likes dolls and otherwise doesn’t conform to masculine stereotypes should be told he’s a girl and put on the road to gender transitioning.

Oh, no. 😱 My 3-year-old son played with some toy makeup, brushes, and nail polish today! You know what that means??!
It means he's a kid.

Woke parents prefer transitioning their children if they don’t reflect gender stereotypes. Who will stand up and protect gay kids?
From what we’re told, he sounds more like an effeminate gay boy, to be chemically castrated at age 7 (at his mother’s request, over the strong objections of his father). Is this America or Iran? It’s the woke LGBTQ activists who “don’t give a damn about this child.”
He is seven. He should not be chemically castrated any more than he should be married off or promised into the priesthood. Children can't give informed consent, nor should they have lasting choices decided when they're in second grade.

Where did Georgulas get the idea that her son was “really” her daughter? According to The Texan, the mother said her son liked the movie Frozen and asked to get a “girl toy” from McDonald’s. She also claimed he expressing a desire to wear girl’s clothing.
[Jeffrey] Younger claims that Georgulas had started putting James in dresses and painting his nails when he was three years old. The father also claims his ex-wife locked James in his room and told him that “the monsters only eat boys.” He claims that Georgulas would withhold affection from James if he did not act like a girl.
Today Uganda announced a bill to legalize murdering gay people. National Christian Organization paid a preacher to go to Uganda and help their lawmakers with the bill. Chick-fil-a funds National Christian Org.
If you eat at Chick-fil-a, this is what your money goes to.

The UK’s first Chick-fil-A is already set to close after immense pressure from LGBT rights groups. It’s been open just over a week https://t.co/gFvmJb5PR2

Brad Polumbo writes:
Chick-fil-A’s only connection to any of this is that its owners — not the company — through their separate foundation donate to the National Christian Foundation, the 8th-largest nonprofit in the U.S. That foundation works with Christian charitable groups. And there’s a weak connection between a tiny percentage of the groups NCF works with and anti-LGBT ministers in Uganda. Yet connecting those groups to ministers does not connect them to this legislation. Even Snopes admits “it’s not clear to what extent National Christian Foundation-funded entities were involved in the creation or promotion of a bill to make homosexuality punishable by death.”
Another disgrace for @snopes

A better way to response to Uganda:
This violates the UN Declaration on Human Rights. The UN must act against this. And the business community must react now too https://t.co/NjPgq6L8yu

I’m a Dem primary voter and have supported marriage equality my whole life, but this answer makes me like Warren less. It’s sneeringly condescending, revels in the failures of another person, and assumes gender for no apparent reason other than to antagonize https://t.co/JGvvUfAp9H

Recall the the moment when Hillary Clinton probably ensured her electoral college loss was when she disparaged Trump supporters as a “basket of despicables” who were racist, sexist and homophobic, and that this happened at a fundraiser with wealthy LGBT supporters in a Manhattan penthouse, with Barbra Streisand providing the entertainment. There, too, the attendees enthusiastically clapped and cheered their support, oblivious to how their candidate’s remarks were likely to be heard outside the liberal bubble.
The leading Democratic candidates have a knack for pushing each other further and further to the left — massive wealth redistribution through taxation, gun confiscation, taxpayer-paid abortion on demand until the point of natural birth, “free” college tuition for all, “cancelation” of student loan obligations, etc. etc. But O’Rourke’s latest proposal is so incendiary it may give the others pause.
.@BetoORourke used to seem like a fresh, independent voice on issues like drugs and even term limits, but now he’s all “we’re going to take your guns and tax your churches because Donald Trump is a dangerous extremist who is a threat to the Bill of Rights.”

Kamala Harris wants to talk about the safety of trans people and wants to bring up her D.A. credentials but cannot seem to reference the role played by the criminalization of sex work.

As I’ve said before, it would be interesting if the court were to rule that gay and transgender people are protected from workplace discrimination, and then rule that religious business owners can’t be compelled to create messages and participate in ceremonies that violate their faith. That, however, probably won’t happen.

@brad_polumbo: “Left-wing activists routinely conflate the merits of whether or not gay and transgender people *should* be protected under anti-discrimination law with the question of whether they *are* included under the law.” https://t.co/EpivymnZ3c
