Man Wins Women’s Cycling World Championship

Biologically male cyclist Rachel McKinnon won a women’s world championship Saturday.

McKinnon, representing Canada, won gold for the sprint event in the women’s 35-39 age category at the 2019 Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Manchester, England.

McKinnon told Sky News in an interview that aired Friday that it would be unfair if the cyclist was kept out of women’s events.

“So, if we want to say, that I believe you’re a woman for all of society, except for this massive central part that is sport, then that’s not fair,” McKinnon said.

McKinnon said in a tweet Sunday that a “real champion” would accept biologically male athletes competing in female athletics. (Read more from “Man Wins Women’s Cycling World Championship” HERE)

Tranny Activists Force Menstrual Products Brand to Remove ‘Women’ from Packaging

Always, a brand of menstrual products, has been forced to scrub the “woman” symbol off their packaging in response to a coordinated effort by transgender activists to punish the brand for “discrimination” against trangender individuals.

The Daily Mail reports that the Procter & Gamble-owned brand caved into a boycott campaign that began when transgender activists noticed that Always placed the “Venus” symbol — a circle with a plus sign or cross beneath it, universally recognized as the sign for the female gender — on the wrappers of some of its sanitary products.

“A trans activist using the pseudonym ‘Melly Boom’ had tweeted in July asking Always why it was ‘imperative’ to have the sign on their sanitary products,” according to the Daily Mail. “The tweet said: ‘There are non-binary and trans folks who still need to use your products too you know!’”

Ostensibly, ‘Melly Boom’ is referring to female to male transgender individuals who may identify as a different gender but who do not undergo surgical or medical transition, which would make them theoretically “male” but with a female reproductive system and monthly periods. Some social media users also claim that trangender females can have “period-like” symptoms once a month.

A high profile transgender activist named Ben Saunders also pestered Always in June after the release of a documentary about Saunders’ transtion from female to male. The Always team replied directly to Saunders after making their decision, telling Saunders that, “We are glad to inform you that as of December we will use a wrapper design without the feminine symbol.” (Read more from “Tranny Activists Force Menstrual Products Brand to Remove ‘Women’ from Packaging” HERE)

Hollywood Leftist Shares Gruesome Cartoon of Pelosi Impaling and Killing Trump

On Saturday, Barbara Streisand posted a gruesome cartoon on Twitter showing a bloody President Trump impaled by the stiletto heel of the shoe of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. . .

Streisand posted several other bizarre tweets, including one showing Trump crushed under a giant peach.

“One may argue about a narrow or broad impeachment resolution but Trump has committed multiple impeachable acts,” she wrote, linking to a New York magazine article. . .

The violent cartoons came as a clothing company posted a billboard in New York City’s Times Square showing Trump being hog-tied by a woman clad in the company’s athletic wear. . .

Donald Trump Jr. blasted the billboard, saying, “Hey @NYTimes and MSM. Since you had time to thoroughly cover a stupid and tasteless meme seen by 8 people with incredible outrage, I figured you should dedicate the same time and outrage to THIS BILLBOARD IN TIMES SQUARE you hypocrites!”

Athletic Wear Company Targets Trump for Humiliation in New AD Campaign

A billboard for an athletic wear company features various women humiliating a man who looks like President Donald Trump, including one pose where he is being hogtied.

The ads from Dhvani are being featured at Times Square in New York City. . .

In another, the impersonator is sitting on the toilet with his pants around his ankles while a woman grabs his smartphone from his hands.

Vendors can refuse ads, but the company says that they were able to compromise with their vendor to get the ad approved.

“We were able to work with our vendor and reach a consensus on the level of facial obfuscation that would appease the landlord and get this bold, pull-no-punches, call-to-arms creative up and in front of potentially millions of like-minded Americans,” said Dhvani chief marketing officer Angela Williams.

Hero’s Words: U.S. Marine Wounded After Jumping on Grenade Has Message for Americans

Retired Lance Corporal Kyle Carpenter reflected on his time serving in Afghanistan and discussed how he turned his injury into opportunity in his new memoir, “You Are Worth It.” . . .

“I wrote this book to transcend all boundaries,” Carpenter said. “I didn’t want only veterans or service members, or people that had been to combat, to only be able to take something from it. I wanted anyone to pick it up and not only be able to understand it, but to take lessons from it.”

“Many of the lessons and perspectives that I’ve discussed came because I was forced to search for those silver linings during those long dark and painful nights in the hospital,” Carpenter continued.

“But now, I’m so thankful that I’ve had these amazing experiences from this bonus round that I’m living to tell people that it’s about perspective and how you look at things and that you can truly come back better and stronger than you were before… and come back smiling,” he added.

Carpenter, 29, is the youngest living recipient of the Medal of Honor and is the eighth living recipient to be honored for actions in Afghanistan or Iraq. (Read more from “Hero’s Words: U.S. Marine Wounded After Jumping on Grenade Has Message for Americans” HERE)

City Cuts Ties with Nearly Half of the U.S. Because of ‘Restrictive Abortion Laws’

The city of San Francisco will no longer conduct business with 22 states that have laws limiting the ability of women to obtain abortions, city official announced Wednesday, according to Newsweek. . .

“Every day in this country, women’s reproductive rights are threatened, and we have to fight back,” San Francisco Mayor London Breed said in a statement. “Just as we restricted spending with states that have laws that discriminate against LGBTQ people, we are standing up against states that put women’s health at risk and that are actively working to limit reproductive freedoms.”

City employees will be prohibited from business travel to states on the list, and from making deals with companies headquartered in those states. The city ordinance targets states that have laws limiting abortion before viability—widely considered to be 24 weeks. From the city’s statement:

“In recent years, states across the country have passed a growing number of restrictive abortion laws. In accordance with Supervisor Brown’s ordinance, we identified state laws that prohibit abortion before viability and have recommended that these states be added to the City Administrator’s list,” said Dr. Emily Murase, Director of the Department of the Status of Women. “If any company that is headquartered in the listed states wants to continue doing business with the City, we encourage them to stand up for reproductive rights and advocate for a change to their state law. We applaud Supervisor Brown for her leadership in authoring this ordinance and for continuing San Francisco’s long history of fighting for women’s rights.”

Police Confiscate Firearms of Korean War Veteran After Waitress Mishears Conversation

A Korean War veteran who has served in some capacity with local law enforcement for a span of six decades had his firearms confiscated and was relieved of his duties as an elementary school crossing guard last month, after a waitress overheard what she perceived to be a “threat” in a passing conversation at a coffee shop.

Stephen Nichols, 84, of Tisbury, Massachusetts, was never charged with a crime, and was reinstated to his post at the crosswalk of Tisbury School on Tuesday following public outcry. But his guns are still to be sold. . .

A waitress at Linda Jean’s Restaurant in Oak Bluffs reported Nichols to authorities, after she said she overheard him talking to a friend and believed he was making a threat. Nichols told the Martha’s Vineyard Times that he made no threats whatsoever, and that his conversation was taken out of context. . .

The Times reported that “Nichols said he was unimpressed with the Tisbury School resource officer’s alleged trips to Xtra Mart to get coffee when children came to school in the morning,” and “told a friend about this and suggested somebody could ‘shoot up the school’ in that officer’s absence, which he described as ‘leaving his post.'”

Based on the waitress’s report, Tisbury Police Chief Mark Saloio and another officer pulled Nichols off the job while he was working his shift at the school. “He came up to me and told me what I said was a felony, but he wasn’t going to charge me,” Mr. Nichols recalled.

Ousted Planned Parenthood President: Abortion Should Be ‘Safe, Legal, and Rare’

Dr. Leana Wen, the Planned Parenthood president who said she was ousted because she opposed the organization’s politicization, tweeted her support for abortion to be “safe, legal, and rare.”

The construction “safe, legal, and rare” isn’t favored by abortion rights groups, which back broader access to abortion, and is no longer part of the Democratic platform, which says only that abortion must be “safe and legal.” Democrats have moved to allow government funding for abortion and have opposed limits on the procedure, even when performed late in pregnancy.

“I don’t agree with @TulsiGabbard on a lot, but do appreciate that she brought up the third rail for Democrats: that abortion should be ‘safe, legal, and rare,'” Wen tweeted Tuesday evening during the Democratic debate in Ohio. “We should reduce the need for abortions by investing in prevention.”

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii is the only candidate for the Democratic nomination for president to come out in support of limits on abortion and said Tuesday night that it should be “safe, legal, and rare.” (Read more from “Ousted Planned Parenthood President: Abortion Should Be ‘Safe, Legal, and Rare'” HERE)

Happy Halloween! Annual ‘Offensive’ Costume Bans Begin

Every year, as Halloween approaches, the social justice-oriented “woke” police begin issuing their edicts, proscribing certain “offensive” costumes and cancelling Halloween events lest someone — anyone — be offended.

Late last month, an elementary school in the tony Chicago suburb of Evanston announced that they would be cancelling Halloween altogether over concerns that some children who did not celebrate the holiday would be offended by chilling costumes and spooky treats, according to North Cook News.

A Wisconsin school followed suit, calling the holiday “inappropriate” and not “inclusive,” and also did away with parades, parties, and costume-wearing in school. Supervisors at the school district claim that the holiday made certain children feel excluded and highlighted “inequities.” . . .

Michigan State University leads the way in 2019, releasing its rules late last week and pasting posters across campus asking students to consider whether their planned costumes are racially, culturally, or ethnically based.

The College Fix reports that “[p]osters asking ‘Is Your Costume Racially, Culturally, or Ethnically Based?’ appeared in dorms last week courtesy of the school’s Residence Education and Housing Services. The placards feature examples of ‘costume fails’: a guy dressed like a mariachi, women dressed as a Native American (‘hypersexualized racism’) and in a Japanese kimono, and … a space alien (allegedly represents ‘illegal aliens’?).” (Read more from “Happy Halloween!

Chelsea Covers for Clueless Hillary: ‘Yes’ Someone with a Beard and Penis Can Be a Woman

Hillary and Chelsea Clinton are making the rounds to promote their new book, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience, which includes a profile of a man who now is living as a woman and calls himself Danica Roem. Roem has been hailed as the first transgender woman elected as a state legislator.

The Daily Mail picked up on the Sunday Times story that focused on the generation gap between mother and daughter when it comes to embracing the homosexual agenda:

It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo. . .

In an interview with the Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

. . .

“Errr. I’m just learning about this,” Hillary said. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw.” (Read more from “Chelsea Covers for Clueless Hillary: ‘Yes’ Someone with a Beard and Penis Can Be a Woman” HERE)
