Rugby referees in the UK would rather quit their jobs rather than watch male players who identify as females injure and maim actual female players. The Sunday Times reported that the fear of “being sued as more men claim to be women join the women’s leagues and end up hurting natural-born female contestants with their strength and speed” has led to their decision to resign rather than take the liability.
The refs also report that they have been warned not to question even bearded men for fear of being seen as non-inclusive. Women’s rugby does have a testosterone limit, but instead of testing the participants, refs are told to take the transgender athletes at their word.
Firenze Sage: This is like the circus with the bearded ladies. Woman’s movement –Move!!
The current USA law — passed by President Clinton –gives lifetime entitlement of all federal programs to refugees. 45 CFR 400.301.
This gives a lifetime entitlement for refugees who become citizens. Currently, contractors can continue to deposit refugees where they choose regardless of state objection.
When Obama increased the Refugee admission quota in 2017 to 111,000 four states withdrew. But the numbers of refugees that actually settled in those states did not decline. That’s because of CFR 400.301.
Currently the resettlement programs are on automatic pilot without the States able to say no effectively.
President Trump lowered the immigration quota to 45,000. The next President could increase it to 250,000. It’s time that citizens of the USA spoke up and get control of how many “refugees” are allowed in and on what basis refugees will be admitted.
The USA can and should seek to strengthen women’s rights abroad. And we can and should be be a beacon of freedom world wide.

The most safe county for Muslim women and girls? The USA says one American professor.
An Ohio music professor who said Muslim women and girls are safer in the U.S. than in any Middle Eastern country has been forced to retire.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports University of Cincinnati assistant professor Clifford Adams has been placed on administrative [leave] for the remainder of the semester and will retire May 1.
He made the comment online to a Muslim student who had criticized Donald Trump’s presidency and spoke about freedom and diversity. Adams wrote “how dare” she complain.
Adams didn’t respond immediately Friday to a request for comment. He earlier wrote a letter to The Enquirer saying he was “deeply sorry” and was trying to have a “lively, provocative, scholarly argument.” School spokesman Greg Vehr says the university is “committed to excellence and diversity.”
Firenze Sage: Funny how diversity means everything but common sense.
A professor at East Carolina University recently discovered that the diversity course she teaches isn’t actually “effective” in changing students’ racial or gender biases.
Dr. Michele Stacey, who teaches criminal justice at ECU, assessed the efficacy of the school’s diversity course by surveying 288 criminal justice students’ attitudes towards women and minorities both before and after taking the course, publishing her findings in the latest issue of the Journal of Criminal Justice Education.
Race, Gender, and Special Populations in the Criminal Justice System is a three-credit course that is required for the ECU major and minor in criminal justice. Aimed at educating students about the challenges of minorities in the criminal justice system, the course covers a variety of topics, including Native Americans and African Americans.
But while the course is also offered in the spirit of helping to reduce student’s bias towards these groups, Stacey discovered something interesting.
After assessing the bias of students before and after the course—using prompts such as “a woman should worry less about their rights and more about becoming good wives and mothers” and “if blacks would only try harder they could be just as well off as whites”—Stacey found that the course hadn’t altered students’ attitudes towards race or gender.
Executives favor a classic command-and-control approach to diversity because it boils expected behaviors down to dos and don’ts that are easy to understand and defend. Yet this approach also flies in the face of nearly everything we know about how to motivate people to make changes. Decades of social science research point to a simple truth: You won’t get managers on board by blaming and shaming them with rules and reeducation. Let’s look at how the most common top-down efforts typically go wrong.
Do people who undergo training usually shed their biases? Researchers have been examining that question since before World War II, in nearly a thousand studies. It turns out that while people are easily taught to respond correctly to a questionnaire about bias, they soon forget the right answers. The positive effects of diversity training rarely last beyond a day or two, and a number of studies suggest that it can activate bias or spark a backlash. Nonetheless, nearly half of midsize companies use it, as do nearly all the Fortune 500.
Firenze Sage: This cannot stand so the class will be pass/fail and nobody will fail.
Does he rub your back OK? What over diner do Mueller’s FBI agents Page and Strzok –involved in the Trump investigation — say to spouses? ‘Pass the peas?’
What do FBI agents Strzok and Page — both married to different people — say to their spouses over dinner tonight (Dec. 13, 2017) now that it comes out what they have been doing [having a sexual affair] and sending text communications back and forth about their dislike of Trump. And how to save the country from a possible President Trump.
Do Page and Strzok say, ‘Pass the peas?’ On Wed. FBI agent Page and her husband Barrow left their home to do what they do, i.e, get children where they have to go.
Clearly, Special Investigator Mueller did not check out the political bias of those he put on his crack team. Clearly Mueller did not do his homework. Now it’s unraveling … Why did Mueller put the lead FBI agent Stzok involved with the Clinton emails [he sat in on the interviews and recommended changing the language so more supportive of Clinton] also on the team investigating Trump? That was Mueller’s bad decision.
How does the Page/ Strzok sexual affair and their communications back and forth impact the image of the FBI and USA federal government. Both Strzok and Page were and are pro-Clinton and anti-Trump and have been so for a long time.
And – very importantly also — how does the publicity about all this impact their children and their families?
Yes – this info may impact the Mueller investigation of Trump.
“I saw a member yesterday with her cleavage so deep it was down to the floor,” Kaptur said, according to the sources present. “And what I’ve seen … it’s really an invitation.” The comments left many others in the room stunned, the sources said. From Politico.
Kaptur said women on Capitol Hill should have to abide by a stricter dress code, like those adopted by the military or corporations.
“Maybe I’ll get booed for saying this, but many companies and the military [have] a dress code,” she said. “I have been appalled at some of the dress of … members and staff. Men have to wear ties and suits.”
Aptos Psychologist: More decorum coming soon? Not likely. Women students wear P.J.s to night law classes. In Aptos, women wear bathing suits with minor cover up to get groceries. The image you present does affect how people interact with you.

More than 50% of Palestinians — men and women — think a woman should marry her rapist. That seems bizarre and outlandish by Western standards. The picture to left shows a group marriage of child brides in Palestine.
Below is a picture of an 11 year old who was forced to marry her rapist.
Women in Saudi Arabia still can’t drive — but some will have access to credit, markets and networks. One million foreign drivers shuttle women around in Saudi Arabia.
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia—The World Bank announced Sunday at an event with Ivanka Trump, the U.S. president’s daughter and senior White House adviser, that Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates have pledged a combined $100 million to a fund that will assist women entrepreneurs and small business owners.
“As a female leader within the Trump administration, my focus is to help empower women in the United States and around the globe,” Ms. Trump said.
The Women Entrepreneurs Fund is currently being formed and will be aimed at helping women in the Middle East by easing their access to finance, markets and networks.
