Biology Isn’t Bigotry: Christians, Lesbians, and Radical Feminists Unite to Fight Gender Ideology

first_imgPublic Discourse 6 March 2017Family First Comment: Well said by this mother…. “What worries me most is that schools across the country are quashing debate, abandoning academic excellence, and reducing themselves to pawns in a political movement whose claims are highly questionable, unscientific, and harmful to children. Public schools have a duty to serve all children, but a school cannot serve children and a totalitarian ideology all at once…..”www.askmefirst.nz….The belief that one’s internal sense of self determines maleness or femaleness and that subjective feelings take precedence over an objective physical reality constitutes a severing of mind from body. Our sex is who we are: it can’t be amputated from our body like a limb. But the true believers in gender ideology are hard at work, pulling in converts to this gnostic worldview that shuns the material that we humans are made of: the body. You can be assured that an ideology like this will, to use Pope Francis’s words, lead to the “annihilation of man” in our culture, in the law, and in the lives of those who fall prey to the tenets of this weaponized “civil rights” movement.What worries me most is that schools across the country are quashing debate, abandoning academic excellence, and reducing themselves to pawns in a political movement whose claims are highly questionable, unscientific, and harmful to children. Public schools have a duty to serve all children, but a school cannot serve children and a totalitarian ideology all at once…..Sacrificing Truth, Science, and Children’s Well-BeingSo, what can we expect to see if we sit back and allow gender identity to trump biological sex in school policies?First, schools will teach children to accept an ideology that is predicated on the lie that biological sex plays second fiddle to a self-proclaimed, subjective gender identity, and that the sex of one’s body is mutable or even irrelevant. This isn’t just an idea that you can tuck away in a unit study or an anti-bullying presentation. It will inevitably find its way into every aspect of a school and make a deep impression on the developing minds of children. For example, girls, under the regressive mandates of anti-bullying and gender inclusion policies, would have to agree to call boys in their locker room “girls,” effectively losing their rights to free speech and to privacy from males. And science—particularly biology—would die a quick death at the hands of a concept that necessarily eradicates observable facts about human sexuality. Gender ideology in the curriculum is a lie enshrined as truth.Second, institutionalizing gender ideology will require that schools ignore the evidence that it causes real harm to children. You can’t extol the virtues of gender ideology and question its soundness at the same time. By celebrating transgenderism as a valid identity, schools are promoting a body-mind disconnect that may very well bring on the gender dysphoric state they were attempting to prevent. And when the widely accepted “affirmative” medical treatments of gender dysphoria in children are both poorly studied and glaringly injurious, we have nothing to celebrate.We’re building a school-to-gender-clinic pipeline that will feed this new pediatric specialty with young patients. There are now more than thirty gender clinics specializing in youth across the United States, and the young patients who are under their care are often given bone-destroying puberty blockers at eleven, potentially sterilized with cross-sex hormones at sixteen, and permanently mutilated by plastic surgery soon after that.Make no mistake, schools that endorse and celebrate transgenderism as valid are endorsing child abuse. It’s Time to Speak UpSo, my fellow parents, I ask you:Will we allow our young and vulnerable children to be fed a false anthropology rather than teaching them to speak the truth boldly?Will we consent to our children’s sterilization rather than patiently guiding them toward an appreciation of their bodies?Will we treat our children’s mental health issues with double mastectomies rather than demand that doctors provide a true remedy?As a woman, mother, and member of Hands Across the Aisle, I answer with a resolute NO to each and every one of these questions.READ MORE: http://www.thepublicdiscourse.com/2017/03/18894/?utm_source=The+Witherspoon+Institute&utm_campaign=e87c2a2275-RSS_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_15ce6af37b-e87c2a2275-84094405Keep up with family issues in NZ.

The best high school football player you ever saw: Sporting News makes its picks

first_imgWho was the best high school player you ever saw in person? With National Signing Day on Wednesday, Sporting News’ staff asked that question. Our list includes a few first-round picks — including a No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft. There also are a few names you may have never heard of.  NOW: Grovey became a three-year starter at Arkansas, a two-time first-team All-Southwest Conference quarterback and a two-time SWC champion from 1987-89. His high-water mark was a 45-39 victory over Houston and ’89 Heisman Trophy winner Andre Ware, in which Grovey went 11 of 14 for 256 yards, ran for 79 yards and accounted for five touchdowns. After a brief stop in the CFL, Grovey has been a mainstay on Razorback broadcasts in addition to his career in retail management.Jason Ham, Schreiber High SchoolTHEN: “Running back Jason Ham, from Schreiber High School in Port Washington, N.Y. He went to my high school and was co-winner of the 1999 Thorp Award, which goes to the best player on Long Island. I remember watching him shake defenders like he was Barry Sanders. Little Long Island defenders had no chance.” — Alex Novick NOW: Ham was a 1,000-yard rusher at Rhode Island in 2003 and was inducted into the Schreiber High School Hall of Fame in 2015. MORE: National Signing Day 2019 trackerBut you remember when you saw that player. They were the best one on the field, and it wasn’t close. Here are some of our best examples:Brian Davis, Washington High SchoolTHEN: “Although I grew up in Western Pennsylvania and was fortunate to watch Joe Montana play against my high school, I never saw a better high school football player than Brian Davis. Yes, I know: Brian who? From the region that produced Dan Marino, Aaron Donald, Mike Ditka and Tony Dorsett, Davis was one of the greatest high school players, ever. He was an incredible athlete who, at 5-11, played center for his state champion basketball team and also won the state title in track as a long jumper. He was named Parade Magazine player of the year in football in 1984, and he deserved every bit of that. I’ve never seen anyone at the high school level run with the football with the same speed, daring and imagination. He wasn’t an engaged student, though, and that was a problem in college football. He produced one 100-yard game against Boston College, left school not long after and didn’t play again at the D-I level. That ESPN ’30 for 30′ about Marcus Dupree being the ‘The Best that Never Was?’ Nope. That was Brian Davis.” — Mike DeCourcy NOW: Davis left after one season at Pitt and never played football again. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ran a 2016 profile on Davis, who lives in Maryland with his family.Jadeveon Clowney, South Pointe High SchoolTHEN: “‘Have you seen that defensive end from South Pointe?’ That was the first thing I heard at District Three Stadium in Rock Hill, S.C., and it didn’t take long to figure out who that defensive end was. Even after growing up in Ohio, where I grew up hearing names everyone has heard, like Andy Katzenmoyer, and names you haven’t, like Buster Howe, Jadeveon Clowney is the standard from which I’ll judge high school players for the rest of my life. He had a quick first step. He knocked a 280-pound offensive lineman down with one hand. I wasn’t at the game where he played some tailback and had a 99-yard touchdown run — but I was there when he hit a kid on a peel-back block on a punt return that was just as big as the one he put on Michigan’s Vincent Smith at the Outback Bowl a few years later. He’s one of those players where all of the high school stories are probably true, and you’re starting to see why in the NFL.” — Bill BenderNOW: Clowney was the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft and is coming off his third straight Pro Bowl season with the Texans. He compiled 9.0 sacks, 16 tackles for loss, one forced fumble and three fumble recoveries (one for a touchdown) for in 2018.’THE RECRUIT’: Quavaris Crouch and the unlikeliest state champsAnton Campbell, Fort Zumwalt West High School THEN: “I watched Clowney a couple times in high school, too, and he did pretty much whatever he wanted, whenever he wanted. That 97-yard touchdown run Bender mentioned? I was right there on the sidelines as he broke through the line and outsprinted the entire defense (I’m the guy in the green jacket who steps in front of the camera). Mesmerizing talent. But the first truly great high school player I covered was Anton Campbell, a running back-safety who graduated in 2003 from Fort Zumwalt West High in suburban St. Louis. Campbell helped establish Zumwalt West, a brand-new school, as an immediate power under coach Paul Day. Campbell was electrifying with the football in his hands, a combination of power, speed and footwork I hadn’t seen the first few years covering high school football for the Suburban Journal. Campbell, who played at Michigan, was everything you wanted in a teammate — team first, always deflected praise — and everything that terrified you in an opponent. One play, which happened right in front of me, has stayed with me all these years later. Campbell had broken around the right side of the line and started to turn upfield; only a lone defensive back stood between Campbell and the end zone, some 30 yards downfield. I remember thinking, “What is Anton going to do?” He could have easily juked the safety to the left or the right. Instead, he lowered his shoulder and drove through that pour soul. By the time the de-cleated kid landed, Campbell was already 5 yards downfield on his way to another touchdown. The entire Zumwalt West sideline gasped. The crowd gasped. The coaches gasped. That was Anton Campbell, the best high school football player I ever covered.”  — Ryan FaganNOW: Campbell spent five years playing for the Wolverines, mostly as standout on special teams. Jabrill Peppers, Paramus Catholic High SchoolTHEN: “I went to watch Jabrill Peppers at a track meet once at Paramus Catholic High School in New Jersey. He had recently committed to Michigan and, as I watched him run, I couldn’t help but imagine him beating every Penn State receiver and intercepting every Christian Hackenberg pass. It made me really sad and scared, but I tried my best to appreciate his talent before he put on a Wolverines jersey. Unfortunately due to injury — but luckily for Penn State fans — he was redshirted during the quadruple-overtime showdown between the two powerhouses the following year. Unluckily for Penn State fans, Jim Harbaugh had Peppers play both sides of the ball in 2015. I was once again sad and scared.” — Karisa MaxwellNOW: Peppers, a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2016, completed his second season in the NFL as a safety for the Browns after being selected with the 25th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.Dre Kirkpatrick, Gadsden City High SchoolTHEN: “As Nick Saban worked on his incredible 2009 recruiting class at Alabama, one prospect in particular stood out to those of us in the Yellowhammer State: cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick of Gadsden, Ala. My high school team played in the same section as his, giving me a first-hand look at the top corner in the country. He lived up to the billing, helping hold our team to 74 total yards and even taking a few snaps at quarterback — because why not? He didn’t make any highlight-reel plays, and I felt some pride that we only lost 17-7, but he was clearly the best player on the field — and the best high school player I’d ever seen, then or now.” — Zac Al-KhateebNow: Kirkpatrick just finished his seventh NFL season, all with the Bengals, who took him with the 17th pick of the 2012 NFL Draft. He finished 2018 with nine defended passes 41 total tackles.MORE: Awkward NSD storiesQuinn Grovey, Duncan High SchoolTHEN: “We played a home-and-home series against Duncan, Okla., and for me, a senior defensive end on a 3A state contender, that meant trying to contain one of the best option quarterbacks in Oklahoma history. On his way to a 14-0 record and a repeat 4A state championship, Quinn Grovey was a ghost, a shadow who could not be tackled. I went high on one play, but he bent his body to slip my grip. I went low on the next, but his white shoes ascended while I dove at grass. Another play, he abandoned the opposite sideline, reversed field and outsprinted me to the other sideline. We lost, of course.”  — John E. Hooverlast_img read more
