• Muslim Who Refused to Shake Woman’s Hand as She Presented Him With Citizenship Certificate is Denied German Citizenship

Muslim Who Refused to Shake Woman’s Hand as She Presented Him With Citizenship Certificate is Denied German Citizenship

This sounds like some weird parallel to the Christian “Billy Graham Rule.”

It’s the Islamic Billy Graham Rule – the “Islamic Mohammed Rule?”

This story was first published in 2020, but I forgot about it. It’s been sitting in my bookmarks for two years now.

I have no idea how anyone expects a woman to be able to function in society and employment if anyone supports these archaic, paranoid views about male-female relations, where women are sexualized and viewed as “sexual objects” or “sexual temptations” to men.

Some women may want to have a career. Some women may not have a choice but to work, if they are single, cannot find a compatible, decent man to marry, and most to all of their male relatives are dead or don’t want to provide for them. Ergo, it’s not realistic (or fair) for men to hold this attitude that women should just get married and rely on a man.

My ex fiance was an idiot who was financially irresponsible. If I had married that incompetent dillweed, we would’ve been broke and homeless. Out of necessity, I would’ve had to work and keep track of the bank accounts.

Muslim who refused to shake woman’s hand as she presented him with citizenship certificate is denied German citizenship

Court rules Muslim doctor who refused to shake woman’s hand as she presented him with citizenship certificate has lost the right to become a German

October 19, 2020
by Tim Stickings

A Muslim doctor has been denied German citizenship after refusing to shake a woman’s hand when she gave him his certificate.

The 39-year-old Lebanese national was on the brink of becoming a German after living in the country for 13 years, completing his medical studies and passing a citizenship test with the highest possible mark.

But he failed at the final hurdle after refusing to shake the hand of the female official at the ceremony in 2015, leading state authorities to deny him citizenship.

• Woman Sues Psychiatrist for Approving Gender Transition After Just One Meeting

Woman Sues Psychiatrist for Approving Gender Transition After Just One Meeting by Snejana Farberov

I bet we’ll see more of these lawsuits in the next 20 years.

I also wouldn’t be surprised when and if a lot of sexual and domestic abuse victims start suing churches (over church cover ups or incompetence at dealing with abuse by clergy or other staff, or sexual abuse on church grounds, pastors advising wives to stay in abusive marriages, etc), and those lawsuits are permitted to go forward.

I never fit many Christian gender complementarian, traditional gender role views and stereotypes.

Thank God I grew up in an age way before the wacko progressives were brainwashing tom boys (that is, biological girls who aren’t into traditional gender stereotypes) that they are actually biologically male and need to get a fake penis sewn on, or get their breasts removed.

I may be doing another future post or two on this blog how demanding or expecting girls to live up to, or live out, traditional gender roles (gender stereotypes) is absolutely playing a role in why so many young girls today are now buying into leftist LGBT transgender propaganda that they’re “boys” and need to start hormones and so on.

Christian gender complementarians play into this by shaming girls who do not want to adhere to gender complementarian biblical womanhood roles for girls and women, and they criticize them over this, and brainwash them into adopting what complementarians deem “feminine,” which is often just based on secular gender stereotypes for females.

I actually did do a post about this previously on this blog, but I perhaps need to re-visit that.

Christian gender complementarians, there again, instead of liberating women and girls from sexist assumptions and practices, double down on it and also demand they abide by sexist stereotypes, which is what the secular, progressive left is doing towards girls and women now, which confuses or upsets girls and women who don’t feel that they “fit” those traditional gender stereotypes or who have no interest in them.

Woman sues psychiatrist for approving gender transition after just one meeting

By Snejana Farberov
August 24, 2022

An Australian woman who transitioned to male, before realizing it was a mistake, is suing a psychiatrist after he approved her female-to-male hormone treatment following a single meeting — and later signed off on two surgeries to remove her breasts and uterus.

Jay Langadinos, now 31, was just 19 when she first met Dr. Patrick Toohey, a veteran Sydney psychiatrist, in May 2010.

The teen was referred to him by her endocrinologist to determine if she was suitable for a gender transition.

The specialist wrote that Langadinos was very young and needed “a throughout psychiatric work-up before embarking on hormone treatment,” according to a statement of claim filed in the New South Wales Supreme Court and cited by the Sydney Morning Herald.

After his first meeting with the teen, Toohey concluded that Langadinos suffered from gender dysphoria and was fit for testosterone therapy, the document states.

…Toohey approved the double mastectomy for his patient, who underwent the procedure in April of that year, according to the court filing.

A month later, Langadinos met with Toohey for the third and final time to discuss having her uterus removed.

According to the lawsuit, Toohey wrote that he could find no “psychiatrist contraindication to proceeding with hysterectomy as part of gender transition,” clearing the way for Langadinos, then 22, to undergo surgery in November.

• ACLU Fights Chemical Castration of Sex Offenders, Pushes Same Drug as Puberty Blocker for ‘Trans’ Children

ACLU Fights Chemical Castration of Sex Offenders, Pushes Same Drug as Puberty Blocker for ‘Trans’ Children

ACLU Fights Chemical Castration of Sex Offenders, Pushes Same Drug as Puberty Blocker for ‘Trans’ Children

by Mike Miller

How many times have we seen it? The hypocrisy of the left knows no bounds. Sometimes that hypocrisy is “shaking my head” frustrating, other times it is outrageous and inexcusable, particularly when it involves irreparable physiological harm to children. This disgusting example descends into the latter category.

The ACLU, long a champion of the perverse, has vigorously fought against the chemical castration of repeat sex offenders, including those who rape young children.

But now? The ACLU vigorously advocates for the use of the very same chemically castrating drugs as puberty blockers in “trans” children.

Let’s summarize, so far: In the first case, protection of the reproductive rights of sex offenders is paramount to protecting the children they rape, yet chemically castrating young children is perfectly fine.

Can someone please explain that twisted logic to me? No — it can’t be done.

City Dismissed Christian Fire Chaplain after He Shared Biblical Views on Sexuality: Lawsuit

Rep. Chip Roy calls termination of Austin Fire Department chaplain ‘cowardly,’ ‘unconstitutional’

Dr. Andrew Fox was fired from Austin Fire Department after posting theological opinions on transgenderism

August 23, 2022

Dr. Andrew Fox, former chaplain for the AFD, has filed a lawsuit claiming he was unfairly fired for offering theological opposition to gender theory and transgenderism in sports.

…”Unfortunately, I’m writing in the past tense because I’m no longer a chaplain for the Austin Fire Department,” Fox wrote. “I was fired from my volunteer role because I shared my religious views on my personal blog — views which city officials could not tolerate. The controversial viewpoint that extinguished my career? Writing about my religious and commonsense view that men and women are biologically different, and men should not compete on women’s sports teams.”

Death by Napping? The Frightening Link to High Blood Pressure and Increased Stroke Risk

By AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION
JULY 28, 2022

  • Frequent or usual daytime napping in adults was associated with a 24% high risk of having a stroke and a 12% higher risk of developing high blood pressure compared to never napping.
  • Experts say napping, though not unhealthy, could be a sign of poor sleep quality.
  • A higher percentage of frequent nappers were men, had lower education and income levels, and reported daily drinking, cigarette smoking, insomnia, snoring, and being an evening person compared to people who reported napping sometimes or never.
  • The Mendelian randomization result shows that if napping frequency increased by one category (from never to sometimes or sometimes to usually) high blood pressure risk increased by 40%.

According to new research published on July 25, 2022, in Hypertension, an American Heart Association journal, napping on a regular basis is associated with higher risks for high blood pressure and stroke.

• Tennessee Mother Says Special Needs Daughter Was ‘Beaten and Whipped’ By Classmates After Years of Bullying

 Tennessee Mother Says Special Needs Daughter Was ‘Beaten and Whipped’ By Classmates After Years of Bullying

I’ve seen other news stories like this over the past 25 years. A kid gets bullied regularly, the school doesn’t intervene, and in some cases, the target commits suicide later.

In one story I read several years ago, the victim kid got so fed up with being bullied by the same kid after years and years (the school knew and did nothing), that one day, the small, victim kid “snapped,” tripped the big, fat bully boy…

As a result, the big, fat bully kid fell backwards, his neck hit the edge of a bench, his neck snapped, and he ended up paralyzed (or did the fat kid die? I cannot recall. He either died or was paralyzed).

I was bullied often as a kid at different public schools I went to (my family moved around a lot, from state to state, due to my father’s career).

I was a very shy kid, and my mother and the Baptist churches I was raised in never permitted me to be assertive and defend myself – according to the Baptists and my Mom, I was always supposed to be very passive. I was taught that confronting bullies and obnoxious or rude people was off-limits and wrong, no matter how politely I went about it.

As I went through life, that “be passive” (be codependent) stance did not serve me well.

It left me vulnerable to attracting more bullies, narcissists, jerks, selfish people, emotionally wounded people, needy people, and weird people, when out in public, on jobs I held, and in friendships and guys I dated.

I since learned, through life experience and a lot of research, that if you want to lessen your chances of attracting a jerk in the first place, or want to quickly eradicate a jerk from your life if you find one in your life, that ridding yourself of codependency and developing assertiveness and boundaries is vital.

I also learned that in all contexts – that is, in school as a kid, in jobs as an adult, dating at any age – that people will usually side with the bully (the abuser) over the target of the abuse.

I read books about the topics of abuse and bullying by therapists and psychologists, and they all explain that victims of abuse are usually victim-blamed.

Human Resources Departments, churches, and schools will NOT defend a victim of abuse – they will always side with the bully.

I also learned, via reading many articles about child- on- child bullying in schools that most teachers will not intervene to protect the victims (this was also my personal experience as a bullied kid in schools in the 1970s and 1980s. Even when I would explicitly ask the teachers to help me, to protect me from a bully, they would flatly refuse and tell me to sit down, shut up, and that it was not their problem. I’ve found from reading up on the topic of bulling in schools that this attitude among teachers still persists to this day.)

Also consider what happened during the “Me Too” trend a few years ago – rather than express horror at how rampant sexual harassment and abuse of women by men is, how normalized it was, and rather than formulating ways to combat it, most people chose to clutch their pearls in worry over how “Me Too” might hurt men as a group.

The concern should’ve been in protecting women victims and women targets of male harassment and abuse (which is common place and part of American culture and many other cultures world over, including Christian gender complementarian churches), but no, the concern was oddly re-directed by idiots who are wrongly, hyper- concerned about “due process” and protecting the reputations of men.

Schools will not protect victims of abuse.

If you’re a parent, even though most schools have a “suspend both kids in a fight, regardless of who was the instigator and who was the victim,” you need to be teaching your children from a young age that if they are picked on by another student, that their feelings matter (it’s not okay for other kids to hurt their feelings), and it’s okay for them to verbally and physically defend themselves – you have to be okay with your kid getting suspended, if he or she engages in self defense with a bully.

I can vouch for what the mother is saying below – what she says about how the school didn’t act on her kid’s behalf , even though she constantly asked them for help, was also my experience being bullied in public schools in the ’70s and ’80s, and I attended schools in different parts of the country, because my family moved every two to three years – schools will not lift a finger to help a kid, not even if the kid is being repeatedly bullied year round in classrooms, the bus, lunch room, in-between classes in hallways, and gym class.

Tennessee mother says special needs daughter was ‘beaten and whipped’ by classmates after years of bullying

Snippets:

The woman, Chrystal Finney, is suing the Giles County Board of Education and its director, alleging negligence.

August 25, 2022
By Minyvonne Burke

A Tennessee woman alleges her special needs daughter was “beaten and whipped” by classmates last August after years of bullying that she said was ignored by school administrators.

The woman, Chrystal Finney, is suing the Giles County Board of Education and its director, Vickie Beard, alleging negligence. The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for Middle Tennessee on Aug. 11, nearly a year after the attack.

The suit alleges that Finney’s daughter, identified as JF in the document, was harassed and bullied for years while she attended the Giles County School System. The girl has autism, obsessive-compulsive disorder, Tourette syndrome and other disabilities, according to the lawsuit.

As a form of treatment, she uses horse therapy. When the girl would become overwhelmed, she would sometimes act “like a horse by running and making certain sounds a horse may make,” the lawsuit states.

The suit alleges numerous instances of bullying dating to 2013. In one incident, classmates pushed the girl into a bathroom, turned the lights off, called her names, laughed at her and avoided her “to hurt her feelings,” the suit claims.

Another allegation is that a teacher “ignored JF’s condition and intimidated and bullied JF,” the lawsuit says, without providing further details. The suit also says a bus assistant approached the girl, “acted threatening to her” and “scared her.”

Finney sent numerous letters to administrators, but “the school took no meaningful action to prevent the further harassment and attacks,” according to the lawsuit.

It alleges that the bullying continued and that it escalated on Aug. 13, 2021, when, it says, Finney’s daughter was assaulted in an outside area at Richland High School.

“While in the designated area, a student obtained a stick from a nearby tree and struck JF in the head and body while pretending he was taming a horse — a clear reference to JF’s actions affiliated with her horse therapy,” the suit says.

“Thereafter, a gang of approximately six other students surrounded JF, joined in on the beating, and began to strike JF with sticks. This activity drew the attention of other students, including students from other grade levels, and this resulted in a mass of students that encircled JF in such a manner as to render her unable to retreat and forced to endure a physical beating by her peers.”

• Kavanaugh Assassination Suspect Portrayed Himself Online as ‘Trans Gamer Girl’ Named Sophie

Kavanaugh Assassination Suspect Portrayed Himself Online as ‘Trans Gamer Girl’ Named Sophie

I do believe that Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh more than likely did sexually harass women back in the day, including Christine Blasey Ford. However, I don’t defend pro-choice, progressive individuals or any other groups or persons picketing in front of his house (or those of the other Justices), making threats against him, or trying to murder him.

The guy who traveled to Kavanaugh’s home to murder him is a Trans-Deviant-Sicko; that is, the sexually confused turd is a biological male freak who identifies as a woman, and who is staunchly, weirdly, hyper- pro-baby-killing (pro-abortion). Of course.

This is the sort of sordid, immoral garbage that many liberals and all progressives support – this is what today’s Democrat Party panders to, as well. This makes Trump’s “grab ’em by the pussy” comment and such look tame by comparison.

Suspect in Kavanaugh assassination attempt identifies as trans woman, Reddit posts reveal

According to court filings, Nicholas John Roske, 26, goes by “Sophie” on Reddit, and is identified as “MtF,” or male-to-female.

 July 31, 2022

The armed California man who was arrested outside of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s Maryland home in June following the leaked draft opinion confirming the overturn of Roe v. Wade identifies as a transgender woman, according to court filings.

According to court filings, Nicholas John Roske, 26, goes by “Sophie” on Reddit, and is identified as “MtF,” or male-to-female. In posts he made under the username “AmericanNick,” Roske introduced himself with the feminine name and talked about gaming, watching television, and wanting a female partner to cuddle with.

‘I am looking for a Daddy to control my sexual life,’ Nicholas Roske posted on Reddit last year

August 11, 2022
By Jessica Chasmar

The 26-year-old man charged with trying to kill Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh frequently portrayed himself online as a transgender woman named Sophie and argued in favor of mandatory abortion as a means to wipe out the human race.

Nicholas John Roske of Simi Valley, California, was arrested near Kavanaugh’s Maryland home on June 8, carrying a backpack and suitcase containing a black tactical chest rig and tactical knife, a Glock 17 pistol with two magazines and ammunition, pepper spray, zip ties, a hammer, screwdriver, nail punch, crowbar, pistol light, duct tape, hiking boots and other items, according to the criminal complaint.

Roske told investigators that he was upset about the May 2 leak of the Supreme Court draft opinion that signaled the court was poised to overturn Roe v. Wade, and he wanted to kill a conservative justice responsible for the decision, the complaint said.

Roske said he used Reddit, Google and other online forums to learn the skills he thought were necessary to carry out his plot, which included breaking into Kavanaugh’s home and killing the justice before killing himself, the complaint said.

A recent FBI application for a search warrant said Roske’s Reddit, Google and Discord accounts contained evidence of Roske threatening to murder a U.S. judge and attempting to assassinate a Supreme Court justice.

“I am looking for a Daddy to control my sexual life,” Roske wrote on Feb. 22, 2021, under “AmericanNick,” one of the Reddit usernames listed by the FBI. “Give me specifics tasks to do while in locked up and/or daily tasks. Whether this be number of times I have to edge myself, time riding a dildo, watching porn, all three or more! Message me if you want me as your sexual toy to frustrate, humiliate, and control.”

In other posts, Roske called himself “Sophie” and described himself as “MtF,” meaning male-to-female, and as “F4F,” meaning female seeking female.

The multiple accounts listed by the FBI are traced to postings by Roske portraying himself as a “trans gamer girl” and “sissy slave” in wanted-type ads, some seeking companionship and others seeking a sexual relationship, according to an analysis by Townhall published Wednesday.

• Homosexual Couple Sues Fertility Clinic Over Receiving Female Embryo from Surrogate, Not Male – What This Says About Progressive Views on Gender and Biological Sex

Homosexual Couple Sues Fertility Clinic Over Receiving Female Embryo from Surrogate, Not Male – What This Says About Progressive Views on Gender and Biological Sex

I’m not sure where this homosexual couple stands politically – I don’t know if they’re liberals, conservatives, libertarians, or what – but as most progressives view homosexuality as a left wing state of being (which isn’t to say there are no libertarian, conservative, or Republican homosexuals, because there are), and progressives also have this ridiculous, anti-scientific, anti-reality position of declaring that biological sex is “assigned at birth,” and that a doctor cannot tell from looking at a newborn if it is male or female, this goes to show that no, people are not buying into that “queer theory, non binary” nonsense.

Personal note from me: I despise people who prefer one sex to the other if they want to be parents; it shouldn’t matter to you if the kid you have is a boy or a girl. Most people prefer male children, and depending on the nation, will abort if the fetus is female. Disgusting.

But this homosexual male couple could see that the baby given birth to via a surrogate was female, they got upset, as they wanted a son, not a daughter.

I’m guessing even if they keep the baby girl and she grows up to “identify as a man,” that won’t be good enough for this couple.

Male Gay Couple Sue Fertility Clinic Over Alleged Wrong Sex Embryo Implant

July 5, 2022

A male same-sex couple is suing a Pasadena in- vitro fertilization clinic, alleging their hopes of having a son were stymied when a female embryo was wrongly implanted in their gestational carrier and a daughter was born to them instead in 2021.

Albert Saniger and Anthony Saniger brought the lawsuit Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court against HRC Fertility and fertility specialist Dr. Bradford A. Kolb, alleging breach of contract, medical malpractice, negligence, fraudulent concealment and violation of the Unfair Competition Law and the Consumer Legal Remedies Act. The suit seeks unspecified damages.

…Throughout the process, the Sanigers were explicit with HRC and Kolb that they wanted only male embryos transferred to their gestational carrier and the defendants represented that the Sanigers would get to select the exact embryos, which had an identified gender, to be used in each transfer, the suit states.

Instead, HRC and Kolb “negligently, recklessly, and/or intentionally transferred a female embryo to the Sanigers’ gestational carrier,” according to the suit.

HRC “specifically targets” families in the LGBTQ community and its website says the clinic is “dedicated to helping the gay and lesbian community achieve their dreams of parenthood,” the suit states.

When Daughter is Born Instead of Son, Fertility Clinic Sued

July 14, 2022
by Kim Schwartz

Further demonstrating the growing commodification of human Life and the family, a same-sex couple in California sued a fertility clinic after the surrogate mother they hired gave birth to a baby girl, instead of a boy, in 2021.

Albert and Anthony Saniger had always dreamed of having exactly two male children. So specific was their dream, that in 2015 they created Gmail accounts with the names they had already chosen for these two boys.

…Their lawsuit targets HRC Fertility in Pasadena, California, and Doctor Bradford A. Kolb, alleging breach of contract, medical malpractice, negligence and fraudulent concealment, and violation of the Unfair Competition Law and the Consumer Legal Remedies Act.

Albert and Anthony claim they were very clear with the fertility clinic that they only wanted male embryos to be transferred into the surrogate mother. Their lawsuit alleges, in quite dystopian fashion, that the clinic “negligently, recklessly, and/or intentionally transferred a female embryo to the men’s gestational carrier.”

HRC Fertility responded by saying, “The couple ideally desired a baby boy but were blessed with a healthy girl. To their dissatisfaction, we have sought to address their concerns. Every child has value and limitless potential regardless of gender.”

The clinic is correct: Every child is a blessing, and has immeasurable value. Yet, artificial reproductive technologies and surrogacy encourage treating children as commodities rather than human persons to be loved, cherished, and valued. The way the men see it, they did not get the product they ordered.

The suit is rife with dehumanizing language and themes. The mother of the child is referred to as merely a “gestational carrier.”

The demand that the embryos be tested prior to implantation—which requires severing cells from an already tiny human embryo—is equivalent to a demand that these children be harmed in order to ascertain whether they are worthy of living. Filing a lawsuit expressly because of the baby girl’s sex devalues her inherent worth as a human person.

Albert and Anthony’s daughter will have to grow up knowing that her parents specifically wished she was killed as an embryo, and that they even sued for damages for her existence. …

• Male Nurse Who Told Woman She Had a ‘Lovely Pair of T*ts’ as They Discussed Breast Cancer is Struck Off

Male Nurse Who Told Woman She Had a ‘Lovely Pair of T*ts’ as They Discussed Breast Cancer is Struck Off

This is disgusting, and one example of the small, sexist actions women endure over a lifetime, that most men are blind and oblivious to or in denial about. That there are some men who think this is acceptable is a testament at how entrenched sexism is in many cultures.

I for one despise having to see medical professionals for check ups of any kind, so this would’ve upset me.

I was sexually harassed by a male doctor when I was in his office for a check up when I was a teen, but due to my mother and complementarian South Baptist upbringing, which pushed me to be very passive and docile, while I did handle the incident in my own way to get that male doctor to stop groping me, I did not verbally tell the guy to back down – which I wish I had.

At my age, now, though, and since I’m over being a sweet, people pleasing doormat, I would’ve told this male nurse discussed below in no uncertain terms to back off, if this happened to me.

I have seen male Christian gender complementarians either speak about or to women the way this disgusting male nurse did with his women patients, or I’ve seen them laugh at similar comments about women. And complementarians then have the nerve to preach that they “respect” or value women – no, they do not.

Male nurse who told woman she had a ‘lovely pair of t**s’ as they discussed breast cancer check is struck off

by Eleanor Dye
August 25, 2022

A male nurse who told a woman she had a ‘lovely pair of t**s’ during a breast cancer check – and made sexual comments to four others – has been struck off.

Wayne Bronze made sexual remarks to five patients whilst employed as a practice nurse at The Island Surgery in Canvey Island, Essex between 2015 and 2017.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) published details yesterday of how Bronze was removed from the nursing register following a nine-day investigation into the incidents.

The woman, referred to as Patient E, alleged Bronze told her she had a ‘lovely pair of t**s’ and rubbed his hands together, saying ‘this is my lucky day’.

He was also alleged to have sent her inappropriate messages on Facebook in 2017, such as ‘allo sexy’ and asking her to be a character witness for his NMC hearing.

Bronze denied the allegations and brushed his actions off as ‘banter’ during the hearing.

But the panel found evidence for all but one of the allegations, which they concluded were so serious that nothing short of a striking-off order ‘would be sufficient in this case’.

The former nurse, from Southend-on-Sea, was also found to have slid his hand down one patient’s (Patient B) jeans to her underwear.

Singer previously targeted for support of LGBTQ rights rejects charge she ‘incited hatred’

Aug 26, 2022

The Turkish pop star Gülşen has been arrested on charges of “inciting hatred and enmity” over a joke she made about Turkey’s religious schools.

The 46-year-old singer-songwriter, whose full name is Gülşen Çolakoğlu, was taken away from her home in Istanbul for questioning and formally arrested late on Thursday. She was then taken to a prison pending trial.

The arrest has sparked outrage on social media. Government critics said the move was an effort by the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, to consolidate support from his religious and conservative base ahead of elections in 10 months’ time.
