Dear Liberal Gender-Deniers, TRIGGER WARNING. You might not like what you’re about to read. There are two biological sexes — male and female. That’s it. There are also two genders — male and female. That’s it. This has been true throughout all of history, and it will always be true. Now, before I get mauled by all of you LGBTABCDESPN keyboard activists — follow me on Twitter! @JonSchweppe — hear me out. Let’s say that biological sex and gender are different. They’re not, but whatever, let’s pretend they are. The two biological sexes are determined by your DNA. They aren’t
Harriet Tubman is a real American hero — a gun-toting, give-me-liberty-or-give-me-death, pro-life Christian. Honoring Harriet Tubman on our money? That’s a great idea. Letting males with transgender identities shower naked in front of little girls in women’s locker rooms or public high schools? This is a really, really bad idea, as Ted Cruz keeps pointing out. But Donald Trump gets it exactly backwards: he says no to Harriet Tubman as “political correctness” and yes to using government power to force open women’s private spaces to biological males. How could Donald Trump get it so wrong? And considering his suggestions he
With the Left attacking North Carolina as if it were, oh say, Saudi Arabia for wanting to protect the privacy rights of women in bathrooms and locker rooms, The Donald ran for cover (as I reported). Guess who is running towards the good people of North Carolina and common sense values? Lion Ted: “There have been very few complaints the way it is,” Trump told The Today Show. “People go, they use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate, there has been so little trouble.” Hours later in Maryland, Cruz gave his response: “Let me ask you, have we gone stark
This should come as no surprise to people who follow the Donald — taking on the Left on gay issues is not something he has any stomach for: QUESTION: Mr. Trump, please be specific and tell us your views on LGBT and how you plan to be inclusive as president. Speak about North Carolina bathroom law in particular. DONALD TRUMP: Well, I had a feeling that question was going to come up, I will tell you. Well, look, North Carolina did something that was very strong. And they’re paying a big price, and there’s a lot of problems. And I
Unlike John Kasich, who tossed North Carolina under his Jon Huntsman Retread Bus, Ted Cruz stood up for the people of North Carolina, according to the Associated Press: Cruz said Thursday during taping of a MSNBC town hall in Buffalo, New York, that states can pass such laws because ‘men should not be going to the bathroom with little girls.’ Cruz says, ‘That is a perfectly reasonable determination for the people to make.’ What would The Donald say?

Ellen DeGeneres is very unhappy. New York’s Andrew Cuomo, and the governors of four other states, are banning official travel to Mississippi. Charles Barkley is asking the NBA to take the All-Star Game away from North Carolina. PayPal is cancelling plans to expand there. And more than 100 corporations are attacking North Carolina over a bill protecting women from having to share bathrooms with transgender biological males. Meanwhile the president’s administration has unilaterally redefined the gender-discrimination provisions of Title IX so that its rules forbidding gender discrimination now forbid “LGBT discrimination.” Meaning: Your daughter must shower with transgender biological males
Faced with an administration that is busy redefining the 1964 Civil Rights Act and Title IX to mean that gay marriage dissent is the same as racism and that your daughter has to shower with naked transgender guys in public locker rooms, John Kasich has decided the really important thing is to avoid, at all costs, the fury the Left is directing at North Carolina for ensuring privacy for women in bathrooms and locker rooms: JOHN DICKERSON: Let me ask you a question about something that your colleague, a governor in North Carolina did. He signed a law in North
We told you earlier this week how Big Business, thoroughly co-opted by the sexual revolutionaries of the left, is attempting to browbeat the people of North Carolina and their elected representatives. Now we are witnessing the marriage of Big Government and Big Business as five agencies within the Obama Administration are threatening to withhold funding from the families of North Carolina. This is not a battle over the right to vote or whether the races can sit together at lunch counters. The issue at stake, unbelievably, is whether the women and girls of the Tar Heel State will be allowed,
