swimming against the confused tide of LGBTI.....

Former All-American swimmer Riley Gaines slammed ex-college swim champ Lia Thomas over the trans athlete’s vocal stance on the Biden administration’s proposed changes to Title IX.

Biden, the 80-year-old Democrat, announced that his administration wants to establish that outright bans on transgender athletes would violate Title IX, the NY Post reports.

However, schools that grab up federal dollars could still enact policies that limit transgender students’ participation, specifically in high school and college sports.

Thomas, a transgender woman who swam for the women’s swim team at the University of Pennsylvania, supported part of the new rule but said it was not enough in an Instagram video she posted Monday.

“This rule is a good start. However, it is not enough. During this time of intense anti-trans backlash, the trans community needs explicit protection from discrimination in order to live our lives freely and equally,” Thomas said.

Her problem is that the rule would not prevent discrimination against trans kids at the “high school and college levels under the guise of competitive fairness.”

She also said growing up swimming provided her with numerous opportunities and it “breaks my heart to see trans kids across the country lose out on these opportunities.”

The US State Department has offered free therapy to employees who were “hurt or upset” when the email system misgendered them with random “he/him” or “she/her” pronouns. Amid its embrace of all things LGBT, the State Department now reportedly requires all employees to list their pronouns in their email signatures.

The pronoun debacle began on Thursday, when Associated Press reporter Matt Lee told State Department deputy spokesman Vedant Patel that shortly before the day’s briefing, he had received emails from department employees in which random gender pronouns had been added to the sender’s name in the ‘from’ field.

Some of these were wrong, with “he/him” pronouns added to female employees and vice versa, and Lee pressed Patel on why the inclusion of pronouns was “mandatory” in the first place. Patel said that he would “look into” the error, and did not deny that the policy was mandatory, stating only that staff could choose which pronouns suited them best.

In a tweet later on Thursday, State Department spokesman Matthew Miller said that “issues with user profiles on Microsoft Outlook” had caused the error.

In an email that went out to employees on Friday, State Department information officer Kelly Fletcher said that anyone “who feels hurt or upset” by the glitch will be offered free counseling, the Washington Free Beaconreported.

Fletcher said that the pronoun feature was being tested when it “inadvertently went live, and a large number of employees had randomly assigned pronouns added to their profiles."

"I deeply regret the confusion and distress this mistake caused our workforce," she added.

Two years ago, the State Department was ridiculed by conservatives for a tweet celebrating ‘International Pronouns Day’, which linked to an article informing readers about “gender-neutral pronouns such as ze/zir/zirs.”

Under the administration of President Joe Biden, the US’ diplomatic corps has continually pushed gender ideology around the world. US embassies – including in conservative societies such as Botswana and Albania – posted tweets on Wednesday in honor of “International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia,” while the US embassy in Brazil marked the day by releasing a video informing Brazilians that “there is a range of gender identities beyond male and female,” and instructing them on the use of “xe/xem” and “per/pers” pronouns.

The Pentagon has called off a drag show which was scheduled to take place at an Air Force base in Nevada to mark the beginning of Pride Month on June 1, according to a Wednesday report by NBC News, citing US Defense Force officials.

The event, which had been signed-off on by US Air Force leadership, was subsequently scrapped on the orders of Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley, who informed the organizers that it was not Pentagon policy to approve funding for drag shows to take place on Air Force installations.

They would be instead permitted to hold the event off-base if they chose to do so, an Air Force spokesperson said. It was set to be the third annual drag show performance held at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada in recognition of LGBT+ members of the US armed services.

At a Congressional hearing in March, Republican lawmaker Matt Gaetz questioned Austin and Milley about reports of drag shows taking place at various US Air Force bases, including in Nevada, Virginia, Montana, and Germany – prompting both officials to express their opposition to Department of Defense taxpayer funds being used to produce drag shows.
