Republicans in the New York State Assembly on Monday announced an impeachment resolution against Gov. Andrew Cuomo, saying they believe the Democratic governor has lost “credibility and trust” and has an “inability to lead” the state of New York amid sexual harassment allegations leveled against him and investigations into his handling of the coronavirus pandemic. New York State Assembly Minority Leader Will Barclay, alongside other Republicans, laid out the plan to introduce an impeachment resolution on Monday.
Gender & Sexuality
A group including all four of Ontario’s main teachers unions is urging the provincial government to offer free menstrual products in all publicly funded schools. The group, led by the Toronto Youth Cabinet, made the call in an open letter to Education Minister Stephen Lecce on Monday. It says some Ontario school boards — such as the Toronto District School Board and the Waterloo Region District School Board — have taken action on their own, but the group is calling for the province to expand that to all 72 of Ontario’s boards. The group notes that British Columbia, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island offer free menstrual products to all students. The letter says menstrual products are a necessity, not a luxury. It says a lack of access to period products can lead to students missing school and work. “Every woman, girl, trans man and gender non-binary person should be able to focus on their education and be active participants without having to worry about inadequate access to tampons, pads, and other menstrual products,” the letter reads.
China’s government finds itself in a fight against shifts subverting traditional cultural norms. According to NBC News, the Chinese government intends to “encourage masculinity” for the male students in their education system. This flying in the face of many postmodernist gender theories that subvert the roles of gender altogether. People in that field are even responding as much. This issue has been on the minds of Beijing officials since December 2020, according to an official proposal. In it we learn that the Chinese government wants the Ministry of Education to hire more physical education teachers and bolster the learning in that department. The same is intended for the country’s health education. On a final note the government proposal suggests research into topics like the “influence of the phenomenon of internet celebrities on adolescents’ values.”
In an effort to protect the feelings of pedophiles, journalists in Tasmania have been instructed to “avoid” calling those who abuse children pedophiles, as this is believed to marginalize those who have the condition of pedophilia. This determination was made after a reporter had a conversation with the Sexual Assault Support Service (SASS) in the region over the weekend, during which these concerns were raised, according to The Australian. The conversation was allegedly regarding a man who was a pedophile, and killed himself while facing charges on multiple counts of child sex abuse and the creation of media showing child sex abuse. James Geoffrey Griffin was a former nurse, and took his life in 2019. In an email sent to ABC journalists, staff were instructed against using the term pedophile even when they are describing a person who preys on children and has sexually assaulted children in a serial manner. Apparently, calling those people pedophiles makes people who are also pedophiles feel that they are being discriminated against.
New York Lawmaker Pushes Sex Ed Overhaul: Teaching ‘Gender Identity’ To 5-Year-Olds, ‘Anal Sex’ To 11-Year-Olds
A New York state senator is pushing to reform New York’s health curriculum to include teaching topics such as “gender identity” to children as young as 5 years old. Freshman state Sen. Samra Brouk, a Democrat, is sponsoring a bill in the Senate that would require state educators to adopt sex education standards created by a left-wing activist group, the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS). The SIECUS standards as currently written would require teaching on “gender identity” for 5-year-olds and on hormone blockers for transgender people to 8-year-olds. By age 11, children would begin learning about “vaginal, oral, and anal sex” while studying a slew of gender identities such as “two-spirit” and “pansexual,” according to The New York Post.
‘Super straight’ is a sexuality that was named by teen Kyle Royce in a TikTok video that has taken social media by storm. In the video, the TikToker, said to be 16-years-old, explained that he is a heterosexual man who dates women and does not include ‘trans women’ in his dating pool. This attraction and dating pattern has led to accusations that the teen is ‘transphobic’, he said. “So now I’m super straight,” he announced. “I only date women that are born women. You can’t say I’m transphobic now, because that’s just my sexuality.” In onscreen text, the video asked the question: “Who else is super straight?”
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo reiterated Sunday afternoon that he will not resign until New York Attorney General Letitia James completes her investigation into multiple accusations of sexual misconduct against him. “I was elected by the people of the state. … I’m not going to resign because of allegations,” Cuomo said during a conference call. “There is no way I resign.”
“I thought he’s trying to sleep with me.

The Correctional Service of Canada and their political masters were determined to change policies involving trans inmates in 2017. The idea was to put female-identifying inmates in women’s prisons. But among those making the move were killers, serial sex offenders and child rapists who now have a home among biological women. Now, a number of former convicts and activists are demanding change. On Sunday they plan to protest in front of the Grand Valley Institution in Kitchener to call attention to their cause.
