The American Sociological Association, the leading professional organization for American sociologists, is now granting its members much greater leeway in how to define their gender identities.
Previously, the ASA’s membership surveys only allowed three choices of gender: “male,” “female” and “prefer not to answer.”
Now, as reported at Inside Higher Ed, members will have no fewer than seven options for their gender choice, with the added ability to select “all that apply.” The added options include “transgender male/transgender man,” “transgender female/transgender woman,” “genderqueer/gender non-conforming,” or another “preferred identity” of their choice not explicitly named.
“Genderqueer” is defined by the Gender Equity Resource Center at the University of California-Berkeley as “A person whose gender identity is neither man nor woman, is between or beyond genders, or is some combination of genders.”

Four people are now under arrest in connection with the shooting death of a Carrollton teenager.
Police say 13-year old Nizzear Rodriguez was shot to death in his grandmother’s townhome while he was sleeping in his bed.
Investigators arrested 17-year old Malik Davis just hours after the murder. He made his first appearance in Magistrate Court Tuesday afternoon on murder, burglary, home invasion and weapons charges.
Police arrested three more people Tuesday afternoon. Kenneth Wheat, 21, is charged with murder and burglary. Jackquline Leann Freeman, 24, is charged with murder as well. Police think she was the getaway car driver. They charged a fourth person, Oleida Ward, 34, with making false statements during the investigation.
Police would not comment on a possible motive, but Rodriguez’s family believes Davis and Wheat broke into the home to rob it.
In court, a magistrate judge stated police believe Davis stole a PlayStation out of the home.[...]
Rodriguez celebrated his 13th birthday hours earlier, and Osorio said his grandmother was planning to take him to buy new shoes the day they discovered his body lying in bed.
Did the staffer step into the line of fire while filming?
The bullet that killed an employee of the long-running TV show Cops while filming a response to an armed robbery call was fired by a police officer, Omaha police confirmed Wednesday.
It turned out the suspect was only armed with an Airsoft rifle, which fires plastic pellets, Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer said during a press conference.
The crewmember was identified by the show’s producers, Langley Productions, as Bryce Dion who was working as the sound technician during the incident.
The Cops crew was with police who responded to an armed robbery call at a Wendy’s restaurant around 9:20 p.m. CT when the shooting took place. The suspect and the Cops employee were both hit in the exchange and taken to the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
The suspect was declared dead at the hospital.[...]
In June Schmaderer explained that he wanted Cops to film his department in action to put “the professionalism of our officers on display for the city and the world to see,” according to the World-Herald.
After dancing around the question, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest begrudgingly says Obama wants to see ISIS defeated, but not now.
ACOSTA: Is the president’s strategy to defeat ISIL – to defeat ISIS?
EARNEST: First and foremost, Jim, the president’s strategy is to protect Americans who are in harm’s way . . . principally the president’s focused on protecting the national security of the United States of America, and in this case, protecting American personnel that are harms way
ACOSTA: If ISIS is a cancer (as Obama called it Tuesday), does he want to defeat it?
EARNEST: Well . . . of course, Jim. But the goal of this action, and what the president is focused on, as we pursue this strategy . . . is safeguarding the American people and putting the foreign policy interests of the United State first and foremost.
Does that make Bill the father?
Sheik Muhammad Ma’moun Rahma: After over three years of this world war, which was waged against us and against the entire Arab world, the tables have been turned overnight.
The Mufti of Saudi Arabia shows up and tells the world and ISIS and Al-Qaeda are the sworn enemies of Islam and that it is permissible to kill them. Then their American master, Obama, shows up and tells the world that ISIS is a dangerous and criminal gang, and that the world must fight and kill it wherever it may be. Then Cameron admits that there are French [sic] terrorists fighting in Syria. America admits this too. Belgium admits this too. […]
Didn’t Hillary Clinton, that whore, admit that she had given birth to ISIS from her filthy womb? Obama, what made you kill your spoilt daughter, ISIS?

A member of the defunct Your Black Muslim Bakery whose conviction and life prison sentence stemming from the 2007 kidnapping and torture of a woman was overturned by an appeals court in January pleaded guilty to three of 13 original charges on Tuesday.
Richard Lewis, 30, is to be sentenced in December to 20 years on one count of kidnapping and two counts of carjacking. He must serve at least 17 of them before being eligible for release and will have three strikes on his record, a spokeswoman for the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office wrote in a statement.
Lewis, a former highly regarded San Francisco high school football star, had rejected a plea deal in the case in 2009 and a jury convicted him in 2010 of charges that he took part in the roadside kidnapping of a woman and her elderly mother in the spring of 2007.
After stopping the women on Interstate 580 with a retired police cruiser, they were hustled off to an abandoned East Oakland house where the younger woman, a bag over her head, was beaten with fists, pistol whipped and cut with a knife, according to trial testimony.
It was part of a scheme by then-bakery leader Yusuf Bey IV to learn where a drug dealer hid money. But it was later learned that a rival dealer had set the woman up and she bore no such knowledge. She was rescued when a police officer happened upon the scene, heard her screams and charged into the house as her attackers fled.
Hmm, something tells me their “Republicans are big meanies” argument won’t stand in court.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House is crafting a blame-it-on-Congress legal justification to back up President Barack Obama’s impending executive actions on immigration.
Facing an expect onslaught of opposition, the administration plans to argue that Congress failed to provide enough resources to fully enforce U.S. laws, thereby ceding wide latitude to White House to prioritize deportations of the 11.5 million people who are in the country illegally, administration officials and legal experts said. But Republicans, too, are exploring their legal options for stopping Obama from what they’ve deemed egregious presidential overreaching.
A self-imposed, end-of-summer deadline to act on immigration is rapidly approaching. While Obama has yet to receive the formal recommendations he’s requested from Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, administration officials said the president is intimately familiar with the universe of options and won’t spend much time deliberating once Johnson delivers his recommendations.

San Francisco will become the first city in California to provide funding to help immigrants who face deportation obtain an attorney, officials announced Wednesday.
The $100,000 will go to the nonprofit Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights, which will use it to provide free legal representation for immigrants living in the country illegally, the San Francisco Chronicle reported (http://bit.ly/1qKKKBl ).
Supervisor David Chiu, who created the program, said San Francisco is the first city in the state to offer such assistance. It’s an expansion of the city’s Right to Civil Counsel program that had focused on tenants facing evictions. [..]
New York City has a similar program, and California Gov. Jerry Brown and other state officials recently announced a proposal to provide $3 million to immigration attorneys.

Or as Obama once said,
“thank God” “God bless” Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parenthood abortion business officials in Ohio are looking for volunteers to pray at a prayer event.
No, Planned Parenthood is not asking people to pray for an end to abortion in the way pro-life advocates pray at prayer events like 40 Days for Life. Instead the abortion giant is hoping Buckeye State residents will pray for more abortions.
As this Planned Parenthood announcement indicates, the abortion corporation wants people to join an abortion activist who is calling for prayer in response to the state’s refusal to expand Obamacare, which funds abortion and sends taxapayer dollars to the abortion giant. Planned Parenthood seeks people who think their religion calls on them to pray for “reproductive health,” which is a euphemism for abortion.
It is going to take the courts to stop Obamas agenda. Update to a previous story.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal reportedly will file a lawsuit against the Obama administration in federal court Wednesday, claiming that the Department of Education has illegally manipulated grant money and regulations to force states to adopt the controversial Common Core standards.
A draft copy of the lawsuit was provided to The Associated Press by the governor’s office. Jindal planned to file it Wednesday in the federal court based in Baton Rouge.
In the suit, Jindal argues that the Education Department’s $4.3 billion grant program “effectively forces states down a path toward a national curriculum” in violation of the state sovereignty clause in the Constitution and federal laws that prohibit national control of education content. The suit will ask a judge to declare the department’s actions unconstitutional and to keep it from disqualifying states from receiving Race to the Top funds based on a refusal to use Common Core or to participate in one of two state testing consortia tied to the department’s grant program.
