White House to withhold funds from Connecticut schools that let biological boys compete in girls’ sports

In 2017 a local boys soccer team in Dallas made up of 14-year-olds defeated the United States national women’s team. It was downplayed by media with claims that the best women in American soccer weren’t really trying against the young boys, but anyone with a brain knows there is zero chance the women’s team was laying off. They tried their best to defeat the boys, many of whom were likely recently past puberty, and still lost 5-2. It was a wake-up call that should have been heeded, but not everyone got the message. Schools in Connecticut failed to do so and are now paying the price as Education Secretary Betsy DeVos announced the White House is withholding funds earmarked for desegregation until high schools stop allowing biological males claiming to be females to dominate girls’ athletics. According to Just The News: The department’s Office for Civil Rights has warned officials at three Connecticut school districts several times that it will not release the grant money as planned on Oct. 1, unless they withdraw from the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference over its transgender policies. Officials with the conference, which governs high school athletics in the state, say their policies conform to Connecticut law. The five-year grants worth roughly $45 million, and the remaining $18 million is earmarked for districts in New Haven, Hartford and southeast Connecticut that operate magnet schools under a federally approved, voluntary desegregation plan, The Times also reports. The charade has been going on long enough. It’s unfair for girls who have trained their whole lives to reach the top of their sport to be sideswiped by mediocre male athletes who claim to be girls. This is a good move by Betsy DeVos. COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat. Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it. When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that. Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance. The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated. The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above. Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going. Check out the NEW NOQ Report Podcast. American Conservative Movement Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.

JK Rowling Isn’t Dead But Twitter Wishes She Was After Even More Transphobia

Though the “#RipJKRowling” hashtag might suggest otherwise, JK Rowling isn’t actually dead. Her career, though, is basically over. This hashtag started trending on Twitter after details about Rowling’s next book were released. In a totally unsurprising twist, it sounds super transphobic.  tw transphobia //every day is a good day to stop giving jk rowling even one precious cent of your money, but ESPECIALLY in light of her moving her violent transphobia out of the subtext of her books and into the text https://t.co/x6fHEjPCzK — casey mcquiston ⚡️ preorder ONE LAST STOP (@casey_mcquiston) September 14, 2020 British publication The Telegraph released a review of her new novel “Troubled Blood” on September 13. Spoiler alert: they said the book was bad. The news about the plot of “Troubled Blood” didn’t go viral until “Pink News” covered the story on September 14th. The book is about a cis male murderer with a nasty way of catching victims. He lures them into safety by dressing up as a woman. If anyone else wrote this, fans might be interested. This plot coming from Rowling, who has openly hated transgender people and invalidates trans women every chance she gets, is a huge blow.  If she didn't have a history of anti-trans bigotry, this could be an interesting premise for a series of well-done adult novels. Hopefully a serious author would consider the real serious implications of such a tale. But since she does, it likely won't be any of those things. — Catherine ~The Witch of Batuu~ (@CatherineKiwi1) September 14, 2020 Rowling has effectively turned a significant part of both her fanbase and the book community against her. Not only are Twitter users and ex-fans slamming her, but so are famous bestselling authors. Aiden Thomas, a trans author, tweeted that he was “absolutely DISGUSTED by JKR and Hachette.” Earlier this week, Thomas hit the “New York Times Bestseller List” for his novel about trans men. Also angry was Casey McQuiston, writing, “every day is a good day to stop giving  JK Rowling even one precious cent of your money.”  i am absolutely DISGUSTED by JKR and Hachette. i am filled with rage and hate. she is pushing narratives that get trans folks discriminated against, brutalized and murdered. this is an aggressive act of violence against the trans community. — Aiden Thomas 🌈👻 CEMETERY BOYS is out now! (@aidenschmaiden) September 14, 2020 In response to today’s comments, Twitter users started “#RipJKRowling.” This hashtag became a snarky way for Twitter users to show that Rowling was essentially “dead” to them. Many also used it to celebrate the death of her reputation and her book sales. The tag got so popular so quickly, that Twitter had to clarify that, no, she isn’t actually dead.  for me it's how twitter had to specify that she's actually alive AHAHAHAHAHA #RIPJKRowling pic.twitter.com/MkWWyXpDof — 🕷️Lily, Fluffy Spider Wife🕸️ BLM (@SapphoMode) September 14, 2020 tw // food rare footage of me attending jk rowling's funeral. it was a fun celebration! heven gained another angle though 🤍🕊 #RIPJKRowlingpic.twitter.com/dR80Cjfgfv — eleanor says gn (@msprobellematic) September 14, 2020 Rowling has been hit with hate after making transphobic comments in the past. This has been going for years now. Trans people, especially trans women, were shocked and hurt by Rowling’s blatant trans-exclusionary radical feminism. Though it was what she practiced, Rowling took great offense to that term. In 2020 alone, Rowling seems to constantly tweet, retweet, or like a transphobic post. Earlier this year, Rowling wrote an open letter to the Internet to address the comments being made about her transphobia. Instead of an apology, Rowling actually made things worse for herself but defending her offensive comments. In June, Rowling posted an extremely long letter on her website explaining why she was so against transgender people. In her article, she claimed to have struggles with her own gender identity issues, but grew out of them. She states that this is a common response. “I want to be very clear here: I know transition will be a solution for some gender dysphoric people, although I’m also aware through extensive research that studies have consistently shown that between 60-90% of gender dysphoric teens will grow out of their dysphoria.” As expected, many people did not like this letter. she’s not dead or anything, but even tom riddle is more alive than her career and reputation 😼#RIPJKRowling pic.twitter.com/3LnLLI0QI1 — fer is looking for hp moots (@70sDRACO_) September 14, 2020 Later, in early July, Rowling compared healthcare for transgender people, which is regarded as a real medical practice that makes individuals feel better about themselves as well as keeps them healthy, to gay conversion therapy, a practice that is widely disrespected and hated for the trauma it has caused. She had all of this bad publicity, and still chose to add fuel to the fire.  JK Rowling is singlehandedly creating anti-trans sentiment that is very real and very, very dangerous to us. She is not just sharing her opinion— she is starting a brand new wave of transphobia. — Vee S. (@findmereading) September 14, 2020 Rowling does have some supporters, though. In response to “#RipJKRowling,” her supporters started a “IStandWithJKRowling” hashtag. Some strongly agree with Rowling’s point of view, praising her for being willing to speak out in a way that few would dare to. They call the people who are against Rowling “fragile.”  Just a bunch of narcissistic fetishists and cosplayers mocking a woman who dared to speak the truth. Your self centred fragility is nobody else's problem.#RIPJKRowling — Hayden Hewitt (@HaydenHewitt) September 14, 2020 The fact the disgusting hashtag #RIPJKRowling is trending on this mess of a platform, tells you everything you need to know about the mindset of these TRAs. Read the comments. Don’t ever ask me to justify my position on this again. It’s sick. Just sick. #IStandWithJKRowling — James Dreyfus 🟥 (@DreyfusJames) September 14, 2020 Others are claiming that the amount of hate Rowling gets is due to misogyny. They cite examples of projects by men that did not receive this much hate.  Unsurprisingly the #RIPJKRowling trend is misogyny in full view. If you haven't woken up to the fact women can't even define themselves as different biologically from men (yep, in 2020) without being harassed, maybe it's time you ask why.#IStandWithJKRowling #waronwomen — natalie (@clovhamm) September 14, 2020 You must have never heard of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho — YaBoiMugen (@BoiMugen) September 14, 2020 Rowling’s words are controversial, potentially leading to more hate and violence. Yet, there are still plenty who agree with her. It’s just crazy to think that JK Rowling can invent a world of wizards, witches, and all sorts of fantastical creatures, but has a such a huge problem with transgender people. The biggest irony of all? Rowling published “Troubled Blood” under a pseudonym, Robert Galbraith. Yup, a male name for a female author who denies the existence of transgender people. This could be a good thing for Rowling, though. Based on the swarms of angry fans, it sounds like this could be her first novel to barely sell.

‘Mandalorian’ Star And MMA Fighter Gina Carano Takes On Transgender Bullies On Twitter

After “Star Wars” star Gina Carano added the joke pronouns “boop/bop/beep” to her Twitter bio to stand against pressure to use false descriptions of people’s sex, she faced the usual vicious attacks by sock puppets and poorly adjusted online denizens. Unlike many other celebrities and athletes, however, Carano is not reversing herself and apologizing to the mob. The MMA fighter is going for the jugular, continuing to stand firm on the realities that men are men and women are women, and speech policing is an aspect of totalitarianism. It all started when Carano got sick of online harassment over her refusal to signal support for de-sexing humanity. She put “boop/bop/beep” into her bio, mocking the leftist virtue signal of putting on social media the pronouns people demand that others use regardless of accuracy, on pain of job loss, relationship destruction, and public harassment. “I’m not against trans lives at all,” she wrote pointedly. “They need to find less abusive representation.” Rather than bend to the heat that resulted from boldly speaking her mind, Carano continued to reject the barrage of bullying that ensued, even playing with her would-be tormenters. Carano has a history of courage in the face of cancel culture. In August, she faced down harassment for posting to Twitter a famous picture of a man refusing to salute Adolf Hitler. She was called a “Nazi” for highlighting resistance to the OG Nazis — the National Socialist Party of mid-20th-century Germany. Carano has also been harassed for refusing to give homage to leftist idols, including not expressing support for the Marxist Black Lives Matter organization and refusing to say “all cops are b-stards.”
