Diversity Enforcers Go Ballistic After Jamie Foxx Makes Joke About Bruce Jenner Turning Himself Into Woman

foxx-obama

(CNN) – Some viewers of the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday night took to social media to vent about the opening monologue, saying one controversial joke crossed the line.

Musician and actor Jamie Foxx hosted the second annual awards show in Los Angeles.

“We got some ground-breaking performances, here too, tonight,” Foxx said. “We got Bruce Jenner, who will be doing some musical performances. He’s doing a his-and-her duet all by himself.”

There have been reports that Jenner, an Olympic gold medalist, plans to transition from male to female. However, Jenner has not spoken publicly about any such possibility.

Many television viewers took to social media to voice outrage. The hashtag #iHeartRadioMusicAwards rocketed to become a top trend.

“Jamie Foxx just made a terrible, disgusting joke about Bruce Jenner’s rumored transition on this trash awards show,” tweeted @laurennostro.

“Seriously #JamieFoxx? #BruceJenner jokes?” wrote @AngelaPquigley. “You’re disgusting, that’s not ok. It wasn’t funny, just mean spirited and lazy.”

U.N. Official Praises ISIS’ ‘Ethnic Diversity’

Via NY Times:

UNITED NATIONS — The U.N. human rights chief told the Security Council on Friday that in a “most terrible irony,” the Islamic State group may be more accepting of the ethnic diversity of its members than some states are about ethnic differences among their own citizens.

Zeid Raad al-Hussein, the first human rights chief from the Muslim and Arab worlds, spoke as French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius chaired a special meeting on the abuses in the Middle East on ethnic and religious grounds. Both said the Security Council should refer the situations in Iraq and Syria to the International Criminal Court, and Zeid said the council should take unanimous action to end both conflicts.

Canadian “Diversity” Group Makes “Gay Sweater” Using Hair From More Than 1,000 LGBT People…

Why did they do it?… Does it even matter?

Via HuffPo:

‘That jumper is so gay,’ is a comment that one designer is hoping to hear emanating from the front row of Toronto Fashion Week.

The garment in question was knitted from the donated hair of more than 1,000 LGBT people by the Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity (CCGSD).

“The idea for the sweater was born from a desire to educate and encourage everyone to use ‘gay’ the correct way,” says Jeremy Dias, director of the CCGSD, regarding their decision to to create ‘the world’s first and only 100% gay object’.

“We want the conversation that surrounds the gay sweater to inspire those who are using ‘gay’ in a detrimental way to both realise the negative impact their words and actions are having and change their behavior.”

“When I hear someone say ‘that’s so gay’, I want to scream: I’M GAY, but you don’t. You suck that pain, that oppression, that emotion up, and you just try to pretend it doesn’t bother you,” Dias added to HuffPost UK Lifestyle.

“The truth is that the existence of ‘that’s so gay’ as an expression is an indication that homophobia and transphobia is still a problem. The reality that we are so desensitised to the expression and the oppression is truly heart breaking. And maybe you don’t mean it like that, but when you are me, and you hear it everyday, day after day, it cuts like a series of a thousand paper cuts that slowly slice at your soul.”

All Hail Transformation And Diversity: CA High School Teacher Leaves Class On Friday As Mr. Swager Returns Monday As Ms. Swager…

It’s for the children.

Via NY Daily News

That’s Ms. Swager to you.

A California high school teacher transitioned to woman from a man over the weekend, surprising students and parents.

Amanda Swager, a chemistry teacher at Chino High School, was raised as a boy named Michael, but learned later in life she was genetically female, CBS Los Angeles reported.

She had begun a gradual, private transition and planned to go public after the summer break, but prying students prompted her to rush her coming out party, Swager said.

“I was in a movie theater with my boyfriend, and some students walk in and start shooting pictures of me in a movie theater,” she told CBS Los Angeles.

The towering 32-year-old debuted her new identity — and name — on Monday when she arrived in a skirt and blouse.

The early response has been mostly supportive, although some parents have complained about the sudden surprise, Swager said.

Several parents, who declined to give their full names, told NBC Los Angeles they should have been given advance notice so they could prepare their kids.

“This probably brought or is going to bring disruption in the classroom because all these questions need to be answered,” a dad named Rusty told NBC Los Angeles. “They’re going to want to know why did the teacher did what he did.”

University of Minnesota-Duluth Now Offering A LGBTQ Minor To Help Students Prepare For Diversity…

Via Campus Reform

Starting in the fall of 2015, the University of Minnesota-Duluth (UMD) will offer a LGBTQ minor and gender-inclusive housing options for students.

“This minor will prepare students for life,” Gesa Zinn, head of the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Department, told Campus Reform. “‘The job’ the LGBTQ minor prepares students for is to understand and embrace all members of an increasingly diverse society.”

To complete the minor, students will have to take classes such as An Introduction to LGBTQ Studies, Queer Theory, Queer Cinema in International Perspective, History of the Homosexual Rights Movement 1895 – Present, and Queer Media.

Zinn said the purpose of the minor is to reach out to students who are not always included, and “a ‘signaling’ to those who think lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender, queer and intersex identities do not exist, truly do and should be recognized.”

The minor will teach students about the history, diversity, perspectives and sexual identity formations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex communities, Zinn said.

The driving force behind the creation of the minor was George Hoagland, an assistant professor in the department.

“Offering the LGBTQ minor is a real indicator of what the campus climate is like,” Hoagland said in a statement. “When these programs are available, it makes a statement that this is important to us.”

UMD students will also be able to live in gender-inclusive housing on campus next year, an option which gives students the ability to live in whatever combination of genders that they choose.

All Hail Diversity: Sarasota, FL Police Department Deletes College Degree Requirement…

FL Police Chief

Lowering the standards to pacify the DOJ and Moonbats.

Via WTSP

Should becoming a police officer require a college degree? The Sarasota police chief doesn’t think so, and city commissioners agree.

Commissioners approved the police chief’s request to modify requirements for hiring police officers. Police Chief Bernadette DiPino asked that the minimum of an associate college degree be removed from the list of requirements, and instead require candidates have a high school diploma or GED.

The chief says this move will help make the pool of recruits more diverse. DiPino says there are other important requirements she looks for such as character, integrity and life experience.

DiPino says while a college degree is preferred it doesn’t always make for a good police officer.

Google CEO Talking About “Diversity” Gets Called Out By Audience Member For Repeatedly Cutting Off Female Panelist…

pjnzotzyyspa1u73sngj

The kicker: The person who called out CEO Eric Schmidt was Google’s “Global Diversity” Manager who leads their “unconscious bias program.”

Via Mashable:

On Monday, Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt and acclaimed Steve Jobs biographer Walter Isaacson were wrapping up a SXSW Interactive panel that had focused on diversity, when an audience member called out the two men for repeatedly interrupting their fellow panelist, the United States’ Chief Technology Officer Megan Smith.

Even more awkward? The audience member who posed the question was apparently Judith Williams, who heads up Google’s unconscious bias program.

Here’s how it went down: Schmidt, Isaacson and Smith were onstage together for a panel called “How Innovation Happens.” One of the recurring themes of their hourlong talk was diversity in tech, and how the U.S. government and companies like Google can get more women and minorities involved.

Both men interrupted Smith several times — not unusual for moderated panels — but Williams felt it was particularly poignant given the day’s topic of diversity. During a Q&A session with the audience, Williams, who is Google’s Global Diversity and Talent Programs manager, asked both men if they thought their interruptions were a sign of the unconscious bias they themselves had been talking about.

“Given that unconscious bias research tells us that women are interrupted a lot more than men, I’m wondering if you are aware that you have interrupted Megan many more times,” she asked, which immediately prompted a round of cheers and applause from the packed room.

On her part, Smith, a former Google executive, seemed unfazed. “It’s an interesting thing, unconscious bias,” Smith said. “It’s something we all have and it’s something we have to really debug.”

Hmm, I think I know the real reason why Google dumped WZ from their Adsense program.

LGBT Diversity Enforcers Issue Death Threats Against Children Of Oklahoma GOP State Senator…

Via Truth Revolt:

Oklahoma State Senator Joseph Silk has stirred up a hornet’s nest inside the LGBT community after introducing a bill (SB440) in his home state that would ensure business owners to retain the right to serve whomever they please. That is not sitting well for some in the homosexual community, who are now sending death threats to the state senator and his family.

In an interview with TruthRevolt, Silk said that since he was quoted in The New York Times Thursday saying homosexuals “don’t have a right to be served in every single store,” he has received hundreds of angry e-mails and phone calls from LGBT activists who believe he is sanctioning discrimination. “A couple of them have been death threats against me and my children,” Silk said.

But what the NYT failed to do was include the entirety of Silk’s statement — the part where he said he also doesn’t have a right to be served in every store. Silk clarified what he told the paper in a statement at his campaign website:

Yes I did say that homosexuals do not have the right to be served in every store, just as I do not believe that I, my family, or anyone else have the right to be served in every private business.

Univ. of Oklahoma Dem President Plan To Ensure Drunk Frat Members Never Say Anything Stupid Again: New “Vice President of Diversity” Position…

How could this not succeed?

(Reuters) – The University of Oklahoma’s renowned football team has suspended practice for a week in protest against a racist video linked to a fraternity and called for punishment of its leadership, team members said on Thursday.

“It is our passionately expressed desire as members of the football team for the leadership of SAE to be expelled, suspended or otherwise disciplined severely,” a statement from the football team said, adding that leaders of the fraternity helped foster a culture of intolerance. […]

The university is investigating the officers of the fraternity and will create the post of vice president of diversity to help prevent another flare-up of racial tensions, the school said on Thursday.

The person who assumes the diversity job will work with the president and have responsibilities that include making sure events at the school, which has a majority white student body, are inclusive.

University President David Boren has been speaking with a possible candidate for the job, the school said.

Boren, a Democrat, served as Oklahoma’s governor from 1975 to 1979 and was a U.S. senator from 1979 to 1994.

The president of the historically black American Baptist College in Nashville says some individuals are considering removing financial support after pastors criticized the school’s inclusion of a lesbian bishop in a lecture series.

A group of Baptist pastors calls the invitation to Bishop Yvette Flunder of Oakland, California, to be a speaker and worship leader next week “irresponsible, scandalous, non-biblical, and certainly displeasing to God.” The pastors ask school President Forrest E. Harris in a news release to disinvite Flunder, among other requests.

The pastors group and the college are affiliated with the historically black National Baptist Convention, USA.

Harris says American Baptist College “will not tolerate intolerance.”

Navy Chaplain Could Be Kicked Out Of Military For Not Celebrating Diversity…

chaplain-wes-modder

I am sure the Navy can find a tolerant Imam from the Muslim faith to replace him and administer to the spiritual needs of all the special snowflakes currently in service. Services can be held in the Rainbow Room.

Via FOX News

UPDATE: The Pentagon released the following statement to Fox News on Tuesday:

Chaplain Modder has been temporarily assigned to Naval Support Activity Charleston as one of the chaplains on staff. The detachment for cause action will be reviewed by Navy Personnel Command. The senior chaplain remains in place at the Naval Nuclear Power Training Command to provide religious ministry to the students and staff. The Navy values, and protects in policy, the rights of its service members, including chaplains, to practice according to the tenets of their faith and respects the rights of each individual to determine their own religious convictions.

ORIGINAL STORY:

A chaplain who once ministered to Navy SEALs could be thrown out of the military after he was accused of failing “to show tolerance and respect” in private counseling sessions in regards to issues pertaining to faith, marriage and sexuality, specifically homosexuality and pre-marital sex, according to documents obtained exclusively by Fox News.

Lt. Commander Wes Modder, who is endorsed by the Assemblies of God, has also been accused of being unable to “function in the diverse and pluralistic environment” of the Naval Nuclear Power Training Command in Goose Creek, S.C.[…]

Modder is a highly decorated, 19-year veteran of the military. Prior to becoming a Navy chaplain, he served in the Marine Corps. His assignments included tours with the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit and Naval Special Warfare Command – where he served as the Force Chaplain of the Navy SEALs.

His record is brimming with accolades and endorsements – including from Capt. Fahs.

In Modder’s most recent review, Fahs declared that the chaplain was “the best of the best,” and a “consummate professional leader” worthy of an early promotion.[…]

He said Modder is being punished because of his Christian faith.

“They want chaplains to be glorified summer camp counselors and not speak truth and love into people’s lives,” Berry told me. “There are some anti-religious elements in our military. Anytime somebody wants to live their faith out – there are people who say that is offensive.”

Modder told me he was devastated by the accusations. He believes charges have been trumped up.

“The military now wants a 2.0 chaplain instead of a legacy chaplain,” Modder said. “They want a chaplain to accommodate policy that contradicts Scripture.”

Modder’s troubles started on Dec. 6 when an assistant in his office showed up to work with a pair of Equal Opportunity representatives and a five-page complaint documenting grievances against the chaplain.

The lieutenant junior grade officer went on to detail concerns about Moody’s views on “same-sex relationships/marriages, homosexuality, different standards of respect for men and women, pre-marital sex and masturbation.”

Star Wars Celebrates Diversity! Sci-Fi Series To Introduce First Lesbian Character…

Ughhh, make it stop!

Via Independent:

Star Wars is getting its first lesbian character.

Paul S Kemp has revealed that he is adding the mystery woman to his upcoming novel Lords of the Sith, the next instalment in the official sci-fi canon due out on 28 April.

Little is known about her, but “nerd news” blog Big Shiny Robot has dropped a few hints about what fans can expect.

“Moff Mors is an Imperial who has made some very serious mistakes, but she is an incredibly capable leader and spends much of the book working hard to prevent absolute failure,” a recent post reads. “She also happens to be a lesbian.”

Shelly Shapiro, editor of the Star Wars books, explaining that including a lesbian character “just makes sense”.

“There’s a lot of diversity…there should be diversity in Star Wars,” she said. “You have all these different species and it would be silly to not also recognise that there’s a lot of diversity in humans.

All Hail Diversity – Army Eases Ban On Transgender Soldiers…

Ash Catah

Wait for the announcement in April or May that the first transgender soldier has graduated Basic Combat Training at Fort Jackson, SC.

Via Stars and Stripes

The Army issued a directive Friday that protects transgender soldiers from being dismissed by mid-level officers by requiring the decision for discharge to be made by the service’s top civilian for personnel matters.

The Army’s new policy is the latest indication that the military’s ban on transgender troops may be eased or even lifted.

Last month, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter told troops he was “very open-minded” about transgender troops, adding that nothing but a person’s ability to serve should keep them from serving. Two days later, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said President Obama endorsed Carter’s comments.

USA TODAY first reported on the policy change in the All Army Activities directive when it was in draft form. The Army declined to comment on it Friday, said Lt. Col. Alayne Conway, a spokeswoman.

In essence, the announcement places a moratorium on dismissals by requiring officers to explain their decision to discharge a transgender soldier to a high-ranking civilian leader, a move many would view as potentially damaging to their careers. The Pentagon took the same tack when it backed away from its Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy that banned gay and lesbian troops. It required a review of decisions to discharge gay troops by the department’s top lawyer and service secretaries, and no further dismissals occurred.[…]

There is no specific reassessment of the ban on transgender troops, according to Lt. Cdr. Nate Christensen, a Pentagon spokesman. However, a routine review began earlier this month of the Pentagon’s medical policy under which transgender troops are discharged, he said. The review is expected to take a year or more.

NYC Mayor De Blasio Says Muslim Holidays Will Be Added To Public School Schedule, Cites “Diversity”…

NYC schools now sharia-compliant.

Via Gothamist:

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced this morning that the Muslim holidays of Eid al-Adha and al-Fitr have been added to the NYC public school schedule, calling it “a change that respects the diversity of our city.”

During the Bloomberg administration, the City Council approved adding the holidays, but Mayor Bloomberg was against the measure, saying in 2008, “The truth of the matter is we need more children in school. More, not less,” and “When you have a city as diverse as we do, with virtually every religion known to man practiced, if we closed school for every single day there wouldn’t be any school.”

Before he took office, de Blasio had voiced his support of adding Muslim holidays to the school calendar (FWIW, Republican mayoral candidate Joe Lhota agreed). Earlier this year, Lunar New Year was officially approved as a school holiday.

Linda Sarsour, executive director of the Arab American Association of NY, posted on Facebook, “BREAKING NEWS: We did it. Today Mayor Bill De Blasio alongside the American Muslim community will announce the official addition of Eid al-Adha & al-Fitr to @NYCSchools holiday schedule, a change that respects the diversity of our city.”

Apple Celebrates Diversity With New “Racially Diverse” Emojis … Accused Of Racism For Making Asian Emoji Too Yellow…

Via AFP:

Smiley emoji, sad emoji, hearts emoji, and now, for the first time, racially diverse emoji.

Apple is preparing to release non-white faces in its line-up of the cartoon faces used to liven up text and email messages, news reports said.

In its next update of the icons, the faces will be available in six different skin tones, US media reported late Monday.

Apple said the new inclusion of the faces reflected its commitment to improving diversity.

But by Tuesday, the technology giant was facing criticism that the vibrant shade of yellow chosen for the Asian faces was actually bordering on racist.

“Are we really that yellow?” wrote social media user on Weibo, China’s version of Twitter.

“That yellow is really yellow, how can a man be so yellow?” asked another.

CNN’s website said these are just some of 300 new emojis included in the latest developer version of iOS 8.3.

The new icons won’t be available to the public until the update is released later this year, CNN added.

Celebrate Diversity! Army Considers Easing Policy On Transgender Soldiers…

armytg

The fighting force is being decimated into a social issue test ground.

Via Stars and Stripes

The decision to discharge transgender soldiers from the Army would be made by a top, senior civilian official under a plan outlined in a draft document obtained by USA TODAY.

The move would make it more difficult to remove such troops from the service.

Instead of being made by lower-level Army officers, the memorandum says, the decision to discharge transgender soldiers would be made by the assistant secretary of the Army for personnel. In all services, transgender troops can be automatically dismissed from service on medical grounds once they are identified.

“Assigning responsibility for discharge decisions to a senior official would be a welcome step toward inclusive policy, but transgender troops will still have to serve in silence until more is done to dismantle the ban,” said Aaron Belkin, director of the Palm Center, which has published research on sexual orientation issues in the military.[…]

The Army memo is the latest move toward changing the Pentagon’s policy toward transgender troops. Last week, the Army, for the first time, agreed to allow hormone treatment for Chelsea Manning, a transgender soldier convicted of divulging national security secrets to WikiLeaks. Manning, previously known as Bradley, is serving a 35-year sentence at the Fort Leavenworth, Kan., military prison. In December, Air Force Secretary Deborah James said the ban on transgender troops should be lifted.

The Pentagon does not track the number of transgender troops it has discharged. About 24 transgender troops have been discharged from service, according to a report released last year by the Palm Center. It estimated that 15,000 transgender troops serve.

Under current policy, commanders at the ranks of major, lieutenant colonel or colonel could initiative dismissal proceedings. The new policy would move that decision to a far higher level.
