I hate to break it to you, Mrs. Loser-esch, but the cop started the whole incident, and not the student.


Transphobic shitbrain Dana Loesch misgenders Hillsboro High School student Lila Perry

Today, notorious transphobic piece of shit bigot fake "Christian" Dana Loesch puts out a blogpost defaming transgender Hillsboro High School student Lila Perry (@transwitchcraft) by misgendering her with male pronouns.

Loesch's transphobia on Lila Perry:
I have family and friends with children in the Hillsboro School District. That this issue is taking place here, a rural community about 45 minutes south of St. Louis, is pretty unbelievable. A young man, a senior in high school, has decided to "identify" as a girl and was given use of the gender-neutral faculty restroom. It wasn't a good enough option; he demanded use of the girls's locker rooms and restrooms as well, a move which made the girls extremely uncomfortable. Many students and parents oppose.
Unfortunately, he isn't like other female students because he isn't female. He also doesn't get to determine what's best for hundreds of young girls or judge their reaction. Hundreds of students walked out in protest. The young man claims the girls are bigots for wanting to be comfortable while undressing.
The real bigot is people like you and the transphobic protesters who were opposed to Lila Perry.

Roche Madden at Fox2now on the walkout in Hillsboro, Missouri and why Lila Perry dropped her gym glass:
HILLSBORO, MO (KTVI) - Students staged a walk-out even though a transgender student at Hillsboro High School has decided to drop out of P.E. class and quit changing in the girl's locker room. It is an issue that educators across the country are dealing with. 
Students walked out for almost two hours. Some against what the transgender student has been doing, others supporting her. 
Elizabeth Denton at Seventeen Magazine:
High school senior Lila Perry has identified as a female since she was 13​-years-old. In the middle of the school year last year at Hillsboro High School​in Hillsboro, MO, she came out publicly as transgender. ​The school is compliant with Title IX and has gender-neutral bathrooms, ​but Lila decided she's tired of the segregation. She wants to use the girls' bathrooms and locker rooms since she's a girl, but students at her school aren't having it. 
Yesterday morning, 150 of Lila's fellow students walked out in protest of her using the girl's locker room in gym class. The walkout lasted for two hours, and Lila stayed inside the principal's office because she was afraid for her safety. 

Laura Donovan at ATTN:
Hillsboro High School in Missouri made nationwide headlines on Monday after hundreds of students held a walkout in response to trans senior Lila Perry's recent use of the girls bathroom and locker room. Some students walked out in support of Lila's decision, while the majority fought against this right. 
Lila, who was born male but has identified as a female since age 13, started using the girls bathroom and locker room this year after previously using the gender neutral faculty restroom. Her decision to begin using the female locker room and bathroom has reportedly caused a stir with other girls and parents of students at the school, who say that although Lila wears dresses and a wig, she still has the physical appearance of a male. Lila told local news station KMOV that she isn't convinced that those protesting her are doing it to keep her female classmates safe, as some parents have argued.
“There’s a lot of ignorance, they are claiming that they’re uncomfortable," she said. "I don’t believe for a second that they are. I think this is pure and simple bigotry. I wasn’t hurting anyone and I didn’t want to feel segregated out. I didn’t want to be in the gender neutral bathroom. I am girl, I shouldn’t be pushed off to another bathroom."
Lila nails it. The anti-transgender crowd is doing this hateful act of transphobia for pure bigotry, and not about "safety."

Ryan Coleman gives the cold hard truth about the ones protesting against transgender rights:

UPDATE (9:30PM CDT, 09.01.2015):
Derrick Good, a father of two girls in the district and a right-wing activist attorney, was on KFTK's The Dana Show today to give the side of the transphobic bigots.

From the 09.01.2015 edition of KFTK/Radio America's The Dana Show:

He also appeared on TheBlazeTV's Dana later on to spew more anti-trans rhetoric.

Dana Loesch defends Center for Medical Progress's out-of-context gotcha smear of Planned Parenthood

Dana Loesch, who has a history of being an ardent opponent of Planned Parenthood, was one of many right-wing media voices to falsely accuse Planned Parenthood of "selling body parts."

Loesch's unhinged lies smearing Planned Parenthood:

Former Texas Governor and 2016 GOP candidate Rick Perry on the story:

Louisiana Gov. and 2016 GOP candidate Bobby Jindal wants to probe Planned Parenthood over the nonscandal:

Texas Senator and 2016 GOP candidate Ted Cruz supports defunding Planned Parenthood over this nonscandal:

Now, the facts:

JGibson, yours truly, at Daily Kos:
This story has been reported-- carelessely without regard for the truth in anti-choice activist circles--  as yet another way to attack Planned Parenthood... this time for allegedly "selling body parts." The offender is right-wing anti-choice front group The Center For Medical Progress.

Differences between the Centers for Medical Progress, also from the same DKos article:
The Center for Medical Progress is dedicated to articulating the importance of medical progress and the connection between free-market institutions and making medical progress both possible and widely available throughout the world. We encourage the development of market-based policy alternatives to sustain medical progress and promote medical innovation.
Conservative O'Keefe-esque Citizens For Medical Progress (not affiliated w/ Manhattan Institute for Policy Research):
The Center for Medical Progress is a group of citizen journalists dedicated to monitoring and reporting on medical ethics and advances.

Charles Johnson at Little Green Footballs:
Well, there’s another bogus, heavily edited James O’Keefe-style propaganda video being frantically circulated all over the right wing media and blogs, attacking Planned Parenthood. Yes, again. 
I’m not going to embed this deceptive video, but here’s a link to it at YouTube if you really think you need to see it. But the picture above shows the single most relevant and important part of it — this Planned Parenthood director was talking about standard tissue donations, the kind that are done every day throughout the medical profession. The “pro-life” groups circulating this bogus story are doing their best to portray this as something it’s not: selling body parts. They’re not selling body parts or “harvesting organs;” this is a flat out lie.
Johnson hits it right on the nail with this fauxposé to slime Planned Parenthood.

Robin Marty at Cosmopolitan:
I've read the emails. I've watched the short-version video. I've read the website and the other anti-abortion action groups' press releases. I've even poked through all of the primary sources posted so far in the "Document Vault." 
Now, frankly, I'm just going to yawn. 
A new video is making the rounds through social media and conservative news sites, claiming that Planned Parenthood of America is "selling" fetal tissue and organs. The allegations come from the Center for Medical Progress, which says it has conducted a years-long investigation into Planned Parenthood, and released both an eight-minute edited highlights video and nearly three-hour-long video involving a lunch meeting with Dr. Deborah Nucatola, the senior director of medical services for Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
If the mode of release – massive long "undercover" video footage condensed down to about five minutes of actual meeting dialogue often clipped together and out of order and context -- sounds familiar, it should. The tactic was popularized by Live Action, an anti-abortion policy group founded by Lila Rose, and undercover, edited videos – especially those targeting Planned Parenthood – are her forte. Meanwhile, David Daleiden, the media contact for the project, is the former director of research for Live Action, and according to Breitbart News he held that position for five years and "is no stranger to undercover investigations of Planned Parenthood."
Abortion opponents may be winning in their own media circles with this PR campaign against Planned Parenthood, but when it comes to actually proving illegal activity, at this point their evidence is sorely lacking.

Transphobic bigot Dana Loesch again insults the trans community by misgendering Caitlyn Jenner

You may have heard of Caitlyn Jenner (designated male at birth as Bruce Jenner) in the news the past couple of days, as she transitioned into a female, with a new set of pronouns preferred and a new name revealed in the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair.

Dana Loesch, however, used the occasion to make insulting remarks about Jenner and her transition into a woman, complete with misgendering Caitlyn and transphobic bigotry.

Loesch's transphobic rant on Caitlyn Jenner:
I'm not welcoming Bruce Jenner into the sisterhood. We frown upon appropriating culture, so, too, do I frown upon appropriating sexuality (more on this later). It's not that I care what someone does on their own time -- and if that's what this was, people minding their own business and living their lives, it wouldn't be an issue -- but it's no longer on someone's own time. People used to say "what goes on behind closed doors ..." but things are no longer behind closed doors and it's not simply that the doors are open, either; it's that some are forcefully ushering everyone else into the room and told to legitimize with their approval the lifestyle choices of the individual in question. I and other females are told that we are no different from someone who buys a tube of Mac lipstick and the best plastic surgery in town. We are told that our sex, our gender, is a nothing more than a new product at retail. You can identify, but I will not.  

I didn't care what Jenner did at first. I didn't care when the cover made headlines, when he invited cameras into his home to show off his personal life. I started to care when, upon casually referencing it on air, I received a few emails chastising me for using the wrong pronoun. I'm expected to refine my speech? A day later I saw a trailer for Bruce Jenner’s new reality show, “I Am Cait,” documenting his transition to identifying as a woman. While applying makeup he says he “never understood until now” the pressure women are under where it concerns our looks. It struck me as a somewhat ironic statement.  

This isn’t the new normal. It’s a mental illness. I absolutely am not "politically incorrect," or "hateful" because I take exception to society insisting that a man is every bit as much of a woman as I am because he believes himself to be such. Is this the so-called "equality" over which feminists salivated? This numbing homogeny? 

This is no longer a choice that doesn't affect anyone. It's a societal demand that we ignore the born biology of human beings. 
Dana, being transgender is NOT a "mental illness."

On her radio show yesterday, she made a very hateful anti-transgender rant regarding Jenner.

From the 06.03.2015 edition of KFTK/Radio America's The Dana Show:

Kira Davis at Every Joe also misgenders Caitlyn:

What I will not do is welcome you into the “sisterhood” as a fellow woman. You simply are not. The way my white friends will never understand what it’s like to be black, the way a mother can never really understand what it’s like to be a father, you will never really be able to understand what it’s like to be a woman. 
You are not a woman. You will never be a woman. That title is something that is earned. It is not a persona or a skin you can slip into one day when the moment is right. It is not something you think you are and then later mutilate your body to match. What goes into becoming a woman cannot be surgically inserted (or removed for that matter). It cannot be gained in therapy or a lifetime of feeling different or found in the hem of a particularly stunning dress. I think even the most hardcore of feminists would agree it is far more than biological, certainly much deeper than psychological.

Progressives Today (a sister outfit of Jim Hoft's The Gateway Pundit) on Jenner and Cultural Appropriation:

Cultural appropriation IS a real thing, idiot.

Eliel Cruz at Religion News Service on respecting the trans community by using their proper name and preferred set of pronouns:
Caitlyn Jenner revealed herself yesterday on the cover of Vanity Fair and the Internet was aflutter over the glamorous reveal. 
But not everyone was thrilled for the bombshell photos. Christians made their opinions known about the trans community and on Caitlyn — a lot of them misgendering her and using her dead name (a term used by the trans community to refer to their old name). 
Many use dead names to show they don’t agree with someone else’s trans identity. 
But really, the conversations in the church must go beyond the moment when a trans celebrity is on the cover of a magazine. We need to be engaging the trans community in their health, homelessness, and poverty disparities. We need to be engaging the trans Christians in our pews. 
We need to be discussing the trans community when we discuss on how to make our church more than just a building in which we worship, but on how to be a sanctuary.
That begins by calling her Caitlyn.
Eliel nails it.
