PPFA’s politics are a danger to themselves and others

*See update below.* The Planned Parenthood Federation of America has now fired a doctor, their most recent president, Dr. Leana Wen, in part because she refused to use medically inaccurate language to refer to the sex of patients who become pregnant. This is according to BuzzFeed, buried under a litany of detailed, backstabbing complaints that should make anyone think twice about accepting a job as Wen’s replacement: “Two sources told BuzzFeed News that Wen also refused to use “trans-inclusive” language, for example saying “people” instead of “women” ...

Supporting Selina to Save Girls’ High School Sports

Dear WoLF women,Please see this letter that WoLF has submitted to the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights, in support of Selena Soule’s complaint against her school and track officials.Selena and her co-complainants should have had the opportunity to compete fairly, against other female athletes only. Instead, she was required to compete against male athletes who claim to be female. This is fundamentally unfair, and a set-back to the rights, privacy, and safety of women and girls. Selena is bravely taking a stand by filing a complaint with the Office of ...

Bergdorf, Jones, Makings, and the reckless endangerment of us all

[Adult content note.]Decades ago, sensible gay men, bisexuals, lesbians, and feminists, and particularly the lesbian feminists, kicked the pedophile advocacy brigade out of the gay rights and sexual liberation movements because, although this is not known to be a direct quote, to hell with them. On the basis of that unappreciated work, the modern LGBT movement has been able to make the entirely reasonable point that same-sex attracted people are no likelier than straight people to prey on kids. Further, that if you care that it’s taking advantage when it’s adult ...

Supreme Court refuses to hear Boyertown students’ privacy concerns over gender identity

We are deeply disappointed that the Supreme Court has failed to take up the case of Doe v. Boyertown, where we had filed a brief. The decision not to hear the case was announced yesterday. It means that a lower court’s decision — to let the Boyertown school district end students’ rights to privacy in single-sex locker and restroom facilities on the basis of gender identity — will stand. Alexis Lightcap, one of the students suing to protect her own privacy, and the privacy of other girls, had this to say: "I wish that the school had protected my privacy ...

The planned regulation would overturn an Obama administration regulation that required women's shelters to accept a man's self-declared claim to "identify as women," and allow that man to share sleeping rooms, shower facilities, and trauma counseling designated exclusively for women. In ...

California Legislature Poised to put men in women’s prisons under SB 132

Dear Senator Wiener:  Your proposed bill, SB 132, would harm one of the most vulnerable groups in society: incarcerated women. It would allow any male at any time to self-declare that he has a woman "gender identity," and on that basis allow him to demand to be housed in a women’s correctional facility. It would forbid prison officials from taking into account material factors that put women at greater risk of harm when incarcerated with men, including anatomy, the presence or absence of a diagnosis of gender dysphoria, and the presence or absence of any other ...

Women Unite In Opposition To The Equality Act

May 14, 2019 The Honorable Nancy PelosiU.S. House of RepresentativesWashington, DC, 20515 Dear Speaker Pelosi: Women are uniting in opposition to the so-called “Equality Act” because Congress should only pass laws that protect women, not threaten, silence or abandon us. The Equality Act seeks to enshrine in civil rights law a new protected class of sex based on “gender identity” that claims no objective standard, medical diagnosis, or permanent intent. Under this bill, gender identity is nothing more than a person’s perception of self that can be ...
