Is Trump following Obama's lead on placating the Gay Community?

Today, President Donald Trump signed a memorandum that pledges to enforce a previous Executive Order signed by Barack Obama.

The order, Executive Order 13672, established protections against discrimination for LGBTQ members while working for federal contractors.

It took effect in July of 2014.

While protections existed based on race, color, religion, national origin, disability, and veteran status exists, before Obama’s signing of the order, “sexual orientation” and “gender identity”, were excluded from protections until EO 13672 was signed.

“Gender Dysphoria” is a mental condition listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders that is published by the American Psychiatric Association.

It was previously listed as “Gender Identity Disorder” and used to diagnose the mental disorder that affects transsexuals and transgendered people.

The Executive Order, continued by Trump, requires federal contractors to hire without bias those with the GID mental disorder.

The Presidential Memorandum released today is below:

President Donald J. Trump Will Continue to Enforce Executive Order Protecting the Rights of the LGBTQ Community in the Workplace.

President Donald J. Trump is determined to protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBTQ community. President Trump continues to be respectful and supportive of LGBTQ rights, just as he was throughout the election. The President is proud to have been the first ever GOP nominee to mention the LGBTQ community in his nomination acceptance speech, pledging then to protect the community from violence and oppression. The executive order signed in 2014, which protects employees from anti-LGBTQ workplace discrimination while working for federal contractors, will remain intact at the direction of President Donald J. Trump.

mental disorder

As recently at 2013, the psychiatric “bible,” The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), listed transsexuals as suffering from “Gender Identity Disorder.”

The disorder called for a diagnosis based upon two factors: a desire or insistence that a person is actually the opposite sex of which they were born, and a real sense of discomfort about their God-given gender.

It’s also important to note that at the time, the DSM (IV), ruled out Gender Identity Disorder for those suffering from real physical disorders such as Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome or Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia.

The DSM also addressed Gender Identity Disorder in children saying that “cross-gender interests and activities is usually between ages 2 and 4 years . . . and only a very small number of children with GID continue with symptoms into adolescence or adulthood.”

The above reference is important to those parents who “come out” on behalf of their toddlers and encourage their transformation to another gender – those parents who do so may suffer from an undiagnosed case of Liberal Reality Confusion (LRC).

However in May of 2013, the new edition of the DSM was released, version five, that conveniently deleted Gender Identity Disorder and replaced it with “Gender Dysphoria.”

The change in diagnosis was very important to the gay and transgendered community as they objected to the term “disorder.”

Upon the announcement of the change, advocates stated, “Transgender people may no longer be subject to a lifelong default diagnosis of their mental health.”

Also, the very nuanced difference between the definitions was the inclusion of a single odd symptom: “A strong desire to be treated as the other gender.”

Basically, the American medical community succumbed to pressure by the LGBTQ community and flipped the script. What was a mental disorder just three years ago is now only a disorder when society refuses to treat a man as a woman or a woman as a man.

Huh?

So the “discomfort” of the disorder is caused by society’s refusal to accept transsexuals and their mental condition.

An appropriate correlation would be saying that serial killers are perfectly normal, it’s society’s refusal to accept their desire to kill that’s the problem.

But not all medical communities have lost their collective minds.

Of all places, the United Nation’s World Health Organization still lists transsexuals and transvestites as being mentally defective . . . right along side pedophiles and sadomasochists.

Orlando Terrorist

First things first, this is an opinion article and highly speculative.

As information comes in from Orlando we are just now starting to learn more about the cowardly ISIS terrorist who killed 49 people at an Orlando gay bar early Sunday morning.

The information that is coming in makes one wonder about the background of Omar and if he was possibly a homosexual himself.

Kevin West is a key witness and frequented the Pulse nightclub. Mr. West claims that he and Mateen had been communicating on a gay chat app for over a year.

A former classmate of the terrorist in the Police Academy in 2006 claims that he really thought Omar was gay and had even asked him out on a date. The former student doesn’t want his name used, but said this in response to the two dating.

“We went to a few gay bars with him, and I was not out at the time, so I declined his offer.”

The terrorist visited the Pulse nightclub at least 12 times before he killed 49 innocent people and injured 53 more.

One witness said Omar would come in and sit alone and drink heavily. Sometimes he would get belligerently drunk and cause a scene.

Some regulars who talked with Omar said he didn’t talk too much about himself but did talk about his father occasionally. He mentioned he had a wife and kid.

Interesting things to talk about at a gay bar don’t you think? It sounds like the ISIS terrorist was conflicted and wanted to just belong. He wouldn’t be the first gay man who got married and had children because they felt pressured to.

His father, a devout Muslim who is running for president of Afghanistan and is supporter of Al Qaeda, is one man who could not have a gay son.

Could the hate and anger Omar felt come from himself being gay and his father condemning him? Was he in such conflict between what his religion said and what his heart said that he lost his mind and killed 49 people?

There is no sympathy for the ISIS terrorist and millions of homosexuals have struggled coming out and didn’t kill anybody because of it.

Omar may not have been gay himself, but then looking at the early evidence, it is hard to come to another conclusion.

Orlando Killer's Father

Omar Mateen walked into an Orlando nightclub early Sunday morning and opened fire killing 49 people. The 29 year-old devout Muslim and open ISIS supporter committed the worst terrorist strike since 9/11 and his father is “angry”.

In a video released on Facebook earlier this morning by the killer’s father, it is easier to understand where Omar got his feelings.

The father first talks about his son being married and having a child. He says his son was a good kid.

Instead of apologizing to the victims he said that he was “angry” at this son. He said that it wasn’t his job to “punish” gay people, but that is Allah’s job.

Hold on… “punish gay people”. Why would anybody need to punish gay people?

Only somebody with hate in their heart would think that gay people should be punished for being gay.

If your child committed a crime like this, you would be devastated and sending your condolences to the victims and you would be completely unhinged. Any normal person would feel that way.

Not the father of Omar Mateen though. His stoic response to his son killing 49 innocent people is haunting. He says he is angry and doesn’t know why his son would do it.

The father said the company that Omar worked for gave him a gun, but what does that has to do with anything?

genderqueer

A judge in Oregon ruled that a person could change their gender to non-binary. They don’t have to be male or female.

Somehow a judge thought that it would be just fine to let Jamie Shupe, who was a woman, to declare herself legally as a non-binary.

She doesn’t identify as woman and she doesn’t identify as a man. Neither one fit, so she went with something more neutral, picking the name Jamie to symbolize her neutrality.

The ruling being praised on the left as a first for this indecisive group is just another example of the lunacy that is going on in the Democratic Party.

The co-executive director of the liberal organization Basic Rights said this about the judges ruling:

“A momentous day for genderqueer Oregonians. It’s really exciting for the courts to actually recognize what we know to be true: gender is a spectrum. Some people don’t identify as male or female.”

First of all, I bet you have never heard the term “genderqueer Oregonians” before have you. Yeah, neither have we.

Second of all, how is a court of law deciding how people feel? How can someone change who he or she is, just because they identify with another gender? A white man can’t identify as a black man and have his race legally changed.

This whole thing is a mess. How far is it going to go? As far as we let them take it. Soon judges will be ruling on men who identify as women who identify as animals.

What do you think about creating a new gender, non-binary? Let us know in the comments below.

Transgender Athlete

In Alaska a young boy turned into a young girl and became a track sprinter. Nattaphon Wangyot is the first transgender athlete to compete in the State Track Championship, and she got two medals.

The former boy took third in one event and fifth in another one. She was very excited after the win and despite having all the parts of a boy, she identifies as a girl. The Thailand born runner said, “I am a girl born in a boy’s body”.

She may feel like she is a girl in a boy’s body, but to some she is just a boy in a girl’s sport and they spoke out in protests at the State Championships.

Jim Minnery is the president of the Alaska Family Action group and spoke during a press conference at the State track meet.

“We are here today as a voice from the community to ensure that female athletes are not denied the playing opportunities and scholarships otherwise available to them and to make the playing field even again.

Allowing students to play on teams of the opposite sex disproportionately impacts female students, who will lose spots on track, soccer and volleyball teams to male students who identify as female.”

The transgender in athletics issue is a big one right now and one of the biggest stories ever on Liberty News Now was about a man who became a woman boxer and brutally beat a woman that was a woman boxer.

This isn’t going away either, more people are coming out and changing and there is more support than ever.

Even Richard Simmons is reported as becoming a woman. Expect to see more stories of transgender athletes until the playing fields are equal.

Transgender Bathrooms

A man, dressed as a man who identifies as a man, went to his local Target to see if he could go to the women’s bathroom with no questions asked. What happened is scary.

Taking his phone in to record his encounter, Andy Park asked customer service if he could use the women’s bathroom at Target.

Of course the first person he asked looked like he felt a little uncomfortable and got his manager to handle the gentlemen wanting to use the ladies restroom.

Finally Mr. Park asked the manager if he could use the ladies restroom and here is what happened.

The manager didn’t even bat an eye at telling the man he could use the women’s restroom.

He didn’t ask if he identified as a woman, he just said okay.

The manager went on to say that he would handle any complaints that women might have when they see a man in the restroom.

The viral video shows us that the bathroom policy isn’t just liberal talk, it is progressive action and that if you have children and shop at Target, you should use the family bathroom.

Are you going to continue to support Target after this? Let us know in the comments.

Caitlyn Jenner

Bruce Jenner, the former Olympic gold medalist, decided to become a woman named Caitlyn Jenner. Now reports say Caitlyn Jenner is having second thoughts about being a woman and is thinking about “transitioning” back to Bruce.

Wow. The end must be near!

Caitlyn’s biographer and those close to her are saying she is having a hard time being a woman. Jenner’s publicist denies these claims, but there are numerous reports of people closest to Caitlyn saying she wants to switch back in the next few years.

Reports are saying that Caitlyn still is interested in women and for some reason is having a hard time finding the right one. Really?

This is the man/woman that decided to bring the transgender issue front and center and is now having thoughts of changing? That just makes this whole thing even more laughable. Honestly laughable.

We have an Olympic star who becomes a female on national TV and sparks a pro- transgender movement that has reached a point where we are changing our bathroom laws to account for the sliver of transgenders in the population.

Now after causing all that mess, Caitlyn wants to go back? Do we get to go back to actually having a male and a female bathroom?

Can we go back to not having confused kids in first grade learning about how some men like to dress up like women and head to the docks on a Saturday night?

Can we get back some of our soul that we lost during this discussion?

Will Bruce Springsteen play in North Carolina again?

This whole thing is a mess and there is no going back.

No matter what Caitlyn does to “transition” back to Bruce, she will still have parts of a she, when she is a he. She is going to make him wear a bra for the rest of his life. So when he is no longer a she and back to being who he was, is he no longer transgender? Sorry, we’re just confused, like every other rational person in America.

One thing we are not confused about is the direction of this country and it isn’t looking good.

Are you confused? Let us know in the comments.

Chick-fil-a

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and other city officials are demanding people to boycott Chick-fil-A because they say the restaurant is anti-LGBT!

That’s right, Bill de Blasio, the same guy who made a racist joke about black people last month with Hillary Clinton, is calling for the boycott of a beloved fast food restaurant.

Bill thinks the Christian owners of Chick fil-A support those who are anti-LBGT, but apparently doesn’t believe in free speech. Chick-fil-A serves everyone with a smile and has no store policy to not make chicken for someone who might be gay.

“The Chick-fil-A culture and service tradition in our restaurants is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect — regardless of their beliefs, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender,” a Chick-fil-A spokesperson said.

The liberal political correctness hysteria has gone too far and it is time to make a stand.

Sign the petition below that is going to New York Mayor Bill de Blasio at the end of May. Liberty News Now is going to send the petition with a Chick fil-A nugget tray to the Mayor’s office.

Tell the mayor: Stop Targeting Christian Businesses. I support Chick–fil-A!

Don’t forget to share with your friends and family on Facebook.

Transgenders

Transgenders make up just a tiny percentage of Americans but the conversation about them is dominating the media and minds of people all over this great nation.

You may remember the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s campaign to rally support for the law to keep bathrooms safe in North Carolina, and now there is another pushback on the incredible progressive force that is the LBGT community.

The American Family Association started a petition to boycott the retail giant Target after its new sweeping transgender bathroom policy.

The petition quickly became the most popular action the group has taken.

Over 500,000 people have signed the pledge to boycott Target and that is in less than a week.

The progressive community has been protesting and boycotting, mostly lead by corporations not doing business in North Carolina or artists like Bruce Springsteen who decide not to perform in the state.

Progressives were able to get a couple hundred protestors to DC for the Democracy Spring protest two weeks ago, but this is different. This boycott pledge is signed by 500,000 people who say that are against people going to the bathroom of the gender they identify with.

The issue is not going away. North Carolina is just one of the first states to deal with the issue and Target is one of the first companies to make this new policy.

There will be more boycotts and more protests, but the field is pretty even. The right has been pushed around long enough and the feeling is overwhelming that the bar of our social morality has sunk too low.

People are really starting to voice their opinions and stand up for what they believe in. This time they are protesting with their wallets. There is no word on how Target’s sales have been affected, but if it is anything like the hit that Macy’s took after dropping Trump, then there could be some changes coming to the leadership of the retail chain.
