If Congress isn’t allowed to do it, then neither is Michigan.
A Catholic school in Michigan is asking the appeals court to affirm its right to offer a Catholic education without including anti-Christian transgender ideology–despite the state attorney general’s efforts to force them to include it (https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2023/12/leftist-politicians-demand-catholic-school-teach-transgender-ideology/). In the words of the Gateway Pundit headline, “Leftist politicians demand Catholic school teach transgender ideology.”
St. Joseph Parish School, founded in 1924, is up against a drive by the AG and other leftists “to penalize religious objectors” and force the school to abandon its Catholic beliefs. For this the AG calls school officials “bigots.”
Becket Legal has taken the school’s case. Their quotable quote: “Constitutional rights don’t come with permission slips.”
This is clearly a First Amendment issue, and it’s difficult to imagine the Supreme Court declining to uphold the school’s First Amendment rights. Somehow a lower court dismissed the school’s lawsuit; that’s why it’s been sent on to the appeals court.
How can it be a Catholic school and still hop onto the transgender bandwagon?
Our country is in deep, deep trouble. Now Far Left Crazy has the Catholic schools in the cross-hairs.
Coming soon! To a wetland near you!
They say they’re fighting for women’s rights, but it sure doesn’t look that way. I think the “transgender” movement is all about erasing women.
And men, too.
So we wind up with ridiculosities like this: “judo matches” featuring men calling themselves women, vs. real women.
Hippos and Trannies
Yeah, it was foolishly done to bring hippos to Venezuela and letting them breed in the wild. But at least hippos are a real species, albeit an invasive one. “Trans women” are equally invasive but not real at all.
Had enough yet, America?

Damn, them plebs are getting uppity!
This week students at Loudoun, Virginia, public schools walked out to protest the school district’s “transgender bathroom” policy (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-12705363/transgender-bathrooms-loudoun-county-public-schools-woodgrove-high.html).
In 2021 a girl was raped in a school bathroom by a–weasel word alert!–“male-born” student. And then… the Loudoun school board voted 7-2 to make all school bathrooms open to whoever might want to use them… including male-born bipeds who identify as girls.
Protesting students said the policy exposes female students to a “massive safety risk.” Ya think? I mean, the rape did happen–and all they did was transfer the male-born student to another school… where he did it again.
Somehow the Loudoun school district just can’t keep itself out of the headlines.
No one has offered any reason why boys should be allowed to use the girls’ bathrooms. Not even a silly reason–although I confess I haven’t looked too hard for one.
There is no law that says you have to consign your children to public schools administered by moral imbeciles. It must be just a bad habit.
As long as they’re sincere…!
Remember this? Planet Fitness kicks a woman out of the club because she objected to a man strolling into the women’s locker room (https://leeduigon.com/2015/03/21/planet-fitness-an-integrity-free-zone/). They kicked her out for (oh, forsooth) “being judgmental.”
Yeahbut, yeahbut! If you’re a man and you’re sincere when you say you’re a woman… well boy howdy, that makes you a woman! We will not address the question of why in the world anyone would want to do this.
We are killing our culture. I wonder if it will make it to 2100.
Would you believe it? ALL the available pictures showed women winning judo matches against men. I have seen thousands of judo matches, and never saw that! You have a better chance of seeing a jackalope.
Just three days after it hit the news that the North American Grappling Assn. was allowing men to compete as women in its jiu-jitsu tournaments (https://leeduigon.com/2023/10/30/erasing-women-from-judo/), the organization has done an about-face: no more “trans women,” aka men, will be allowed to compete against real women.
Maybe because it was so ridiculously unfair, many women dropped out of the tournaments; and so the absurd policy had to be dropped like a hot potato (https://www.breitbart.com/sports/2023/10/31/jiu-jitsu-association-changes-policy-after-female-grapplers-quit-over-having-face-trans-opponents/). Now those men will have to compete with other men.
(Holy cow–we’ve won another one! What’s goin’ on here?)
“Sports” in general are already stupid enough without this. But then transgender garbage is polluting everything–why should “sports” be immune?
Ridiculous and shameful: judo succumbs to crazy politics
Women are dropping out of jiu-jitsu tournaments because they don’t want to compete against men who say they’re women. It simply isn’t fair (https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2023/10/female-martial-artists-refusing-compete-brazilian-jiu-jitsu/).
Trust me, I know about this. I was on the Rutgers University judo team. From time to time I was matched against men twice my size who knew as much judo as I did. Sometimes more. I might as well have stayed home.
We had a young woman on our team. Her technique wasn’t bad; but there never seemed to be any other women she could compete with, only men–and so she never won. The men were just too strong. But at that time there was no “men’s judo” or “women’s judo”–just judo.
In 1995 the North American Grappling Assn. (we are already drifting away from pure judo) was established. Until recently, it did not allow men to compete against women. But now, of course, it does–enter the trannies. In a recent tournament in Georgia, a man claiming to be a women won four gold medals… competing against real women.
At a recent tournament in Brazil, women dropped out of the competition because they didn’t want to tackle trannies. Why bother? They couldn’t win.
And so another sport practically erases women as participants. It’s something to be ashamed of.
We can’t help wondering whether the goal is to erase women altogether.
Oh, disaster! Oh, ruin! A federal court has ruled against castrating little boys and lopping the breasts off little girls! Tantrum time!
Nooze organizations, Far Left wackos (but I repeat myself), “educators,” and the ACLU are screaming at the skies after the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Tennessee’s (and by extension, Kentucky’s) ban on “gender-affirming care.” That’s the euphemism they use for those barbaric and satanic procedures.
The two states have banned puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and “gender surgeries.” The Tennessee law bans child castration. The Democrat Party’s drive to pull America down to the level of the Ottoman Empire in the 18th century has been stalled.
Note the NBC nooze link–you’d think someone had come along and taken away their Christmas.
I believe the “transgender” movement is the worst thing the human race has ever done. My imagination balks at looking beyond that.
Thank you, 6th Circuit.

Despite a lawsuit by the state and bluster by Gov. Noisome, seven more school districts have indicated that they will join with the Chico school district in letting parents know if their children want to “change their gender” (https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2023/10/05/seven-california-districts-adopt-parental-notification-on-transgender-kids/).
Noisome, who wants to be president (God forbid!) when SloJo trudges off to Tartarus, is unable to explain why school officials should not be allowed to inform parents when their children flip out for transgender. He just thinks the state of California should prevent them from doing so.
It is expected that once seven more districts stand with Chico, quite a few more will follow. Imagine a state where the voice of sanity is school officials!
The schools are in the nooze, big-time, lately. Don’t blame me; it’s my duty to report it.
But here’s a bit of good news, for a change.
Uncounted thousands of parents, all over Canada, coast to coast, turned out a few days ago to protest the public schools’ grooming children for “transgender” (https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2023/09/21/anti-grooming-protests-sweep-canada-parents-speak-out-transgender-propaganda-schools/). The protests sprang up in Ottawa, Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal–just to name the biggest demonstrations. Yes, even in Vancouver. Who’d have thought it?
Remember this about liberals: they don’t give a damn what anybody thinks, they’re right and you’re all wrong, and they’ve got the teachers’ unions and control the schools… so there!
Speculation abounds that this may be the beginning of the end for the Trudeau Far Left government. If only… Well, we’ve heard that before. Maybe this time it’s true.
Gee–why wouldn’t people want their children taught they ought to try a sex-change?
Libs can’t understand that any more than they can understand the Bible.
“Ye shall be as gods,” said Satan.
Introducing “Creatable World” by Mattel–“gender fluid” dolls that can be any gender” you want them to be from day to day.
A Lesson in Lunacy
Gee, how do they do that? The answer lies in Far Left Crazy ideology! No one is anything but the sum of ‘xer’ external characteristics–which can be changed at will. Clothes, jewelry, tattoos, whatever–it’s all on the outside; and that is all there is to “you.” It’s as if you don’t actually exist.
Someday the bill will come due for all this wicked foolishness.
I don’t think we’ll be able to bear the cost.
