M, F or X: New York City birth certificates
now have a gender-neutral option

ABC News, by Meghan Keneally

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/3/2019 4:34:31 AM

New York City has joined a growing number of cities and states that allow people to choose a gender-neutral marker on their birth certificates. Beginning on Jan. 1, anyone who was born in New York City has the ability to have the gender marker on their birth certificate changed to X, rather than simply male (M) or female (F), and are able to do so without a doctor´s note or medical assessment. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio signed the measure into law on Tuesday, marking a milestone in a years-long battle for advocates. "To all trans and non-binary New Yorkers: We see you, hear you and respect you. Starting in 2019,

How anyone can look at a newborn babe and decide it´s not a boy or girl is beyond me. At this point I guess we just have to be grateful that it survived the womb without being dismembered.

A very large part of everyone´s life is what sex they are. It determines how they act, how they look and dress, how they play, how they react, and often what sort of employment they look for.
For these freaks to take that away from a kid has got to do massive damage.

The progressive mind is willing to deny truth in order to push their agenda which is quite disturbing. God help these boys and girls who have parents who buy into this junk. It is so patently absurd to think they will endanger their children’s psychological well being to appear to be on trend with the latest cockamamie idea that these kooks come up with. Scientists and physicians should have stepped forward to weigh in on this preposterous idea of gender fluidity. However, they remain silent because of the ability of the radical left to bully any opposition into silence. Clearly, truth has been abandoned in favor of ideology. Shame on the experts who should have insisted upon given a voice. They have done these children a grave disservice.

We are witnessing the decay and collapse of our Republic and civilization in real time and our way of life is morphing into a brutal totalitarian system.

This nonsensical and beyond reality law is the proverbial canary in the coal mine. This decline will accelerate rapidly over the next 5 years.

I truly believe we´re marching toward a New World Order in which humans will become genderless religionless raceless faceless sovereignless sexless Equal Units working together to Save the Planet from alleged catastrophic climate change. To many young people that´s a reasonable and fair vision of their future.
And I think this could happen in the next 20 years. Before you discredit this idea, think about what you would´ve said if someone told you a few decades ago that you´d soon be typing on a keyboard and communicating 24/7 with people you don´t know a thing about. Or talking with and seeing a friend across the world for FREE on a tiny device.

Sex is gender neutral.
This action is intelligence neutral.
Applying grammar to persons rather than words is merely an effort to normalize stupidity brought about by fools who can´t comprehend basic English and are intimidated by those who do.
The quickest way to convince others that you have a Montana winter temperature IQ is to start referring to someone´s "gender" as though they were a Latin word rather than a human being.

Just outrageous - with the stroke of a pen, Mayor de Balsio just asserted that proven science is invalid. The world, who used to look at us with wonder and respect now looks at us with dismay and disbelief.

Why are we allowing the Left to destroy us day by day, decree by decree?

My heart grieves for the futures of our children and grandchildren - unless a massive rebellion against this socialist order occurs, they will have no idea of the concept of a republic and that we once were one.

#12, a good point but English, unlike Latin, is alive. Language evolves and the “gender only applies to words” ship has not only sailed but appears to have foundered. Once upon a time calling someone “nice” was an insult and “awful” was a word not to be used in polite company.

Why Trump will win the wall fight

Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes once said, “If my fellow citizens want to go to hell, I will help them. It is my job.” What he was expressing is the limited role of courts in challenges to federal law. It is not their task as judges to sit as a super legislature to question the priorities or policies of the political branches. They will gladly send Congress to hell. It only needs to be clear about the destination. In the matter of the border wall, Congress could not have been more clear where it was heading.

The percentage of government workers who belong to a union dipped again in 2018 and has hit a 40-year low. Just 33.9 percent of government workers now belong to a union, according to government figures, the lowest point since 1978, and down from a peak of 38.7 percent in the 1990s. Behind those numbers has been the failure of government labor groups to bounce back from a steep decline in government employment that began in 2009. That year, unions boasted 7.897 million government workers. Last year, however, just 7.162 million workers

Following months of complaints from the progressive politicos who control local politics in New York City, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos abruptly canceled plans to open the online retailer´s new corporate headquarters branch in Queens. Amazon had spent more than a year hunting for the location of its new headquarters, baiting cities across the country into falling over themselves and making ridiculous promises in a bid to get Amazon´s 50,000 jobs. The tech giant ultimately settled on splitting its new HQ between New York and Crystal City, Va. New York´s corporate welfare package was especially large, appallingly so.

If Washington, D.C. were a better place, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe would be swiftly run out of town. He was fired last year for lying to the FBI’s inspector general at least four times regarding serious questions about multiple abuses that occurred while McCabe sat in a powerful and unelected office. These abuses included working with former FBI director James Comey to set up former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus for obstruction charges, slow-walking and sabotaging the investigation of yet unseen Hillary Clinton emails found on Anthony Weiner’s computer just before the 2016 election,

ROME — The Vatican on Saturday said it had stripped ex-cardinal Theodore McCarrick of the rights of the priesthood, leveling a historic penalty against a onetime church power broker and former archbishop of Washington who has been credibly accused of sexual abuse. In a short release, the Vatican said a canonical process had found McCarrick guilty of several charges, including “sins” with minors and adults, “with the aggravating factor of the abuse of power.” McCarrick, the Vatican said, was notified on Friday of the decision. The decision was affirmed by Pope Francis, meaning McCarrick has no further recourse.

Federal authorities seized two massive shipments of cocaine at the same California port of entry in late January. The total for the two shipments was 221 pounds -- the largest at that port in 25 years, according to officials. The busts, which were announced on Friday, were both found aboard ships at Port Hueneme in Ventura County, about 60 miles northwest of Los Angeles, coming from Central and South America. The first shipment, which was 204.2 pounds, was seized on Jan. 22 on a cargo ship from Ecuador. Six days later, the same authorities found a seven-bundle, 17.5-pound shipment

The most egregious anti-democratic actions ever taken by the what can now fairly be called the Deep State are confirmed with the publication of fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s new book detailing how the FBI and Justice Department plotted to remove President Trump from office for firing FBI Director James Comey. Justice Department and FBI officials spied on U.S. citizens with false warrants, gave a pass to one presidential campaign with a predetermined investigation, investigated another political campaign on the basis of no verified evidence, and illegally leaked information on investigations. They discussed wiretapping and using the 25th Amendment

In the late ’70s there was a horrendous spate of child murders in the Atlanta area. Once it became clear that a serial monster was on the loose, people sprang into action. It was all little black children, almost all boys. Racist slanders to the contrary, white people were just as appalled as black people. Committees were formed, ribbons were worn, buttons were sold that said, “Stop the Racist Murders.” OBVIOUSLY, it was racist, right? Who in their right mind would believe that a black man had done such hideous things to black children? Then they arrested Wayne Williams

On this day in 1989, the Ayatollah Khomeini announced a fatwa calling for the killing of the novelist Salman Rushdie. His “crime” was having described Islam’s founder Muhammad in his book, “The Satanic Verses,” in a way that displeased the Islamic leader. All Muslims were called upon to kill Rushdie — basically, an international contract was put out on him. For an America that was not yet fixated on the dangers of Islamic extremism, it was a chilling moment, both frightening and confusing. As the fates would have it, that same year the United States faced its own debate

WASHINGTON -- The "Green New Deal" is upon us, and the question is what to make of it. The Democratic proposal mandates that, within a decade, virtually all fossil fuels -- which represent about four-fifths of the nation´s energy supply -- shall be replaced with clean fuels that don´t worsen global warming. Just how is this task to be accomplished? The main sponsors of the Green New Deal -- Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen. Edward J. Markey, D-Mass. -- don´t say. The difficulties are made apparent by new projections of energy use between 2017 and 2050

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black. I was born black. I will die black,”

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district. The project reportedly would have entailed
