It's self-evident that trans women who have been through male puberty and been on hormones for half-a-year are going to have a mega competitive edge over cisgender females in certain sports. But not I wager in synchronised swimming. It's just one of those things, unfortunately, trans women are going to have miss out.

Why can't they have their own catogories like they do in the Paralympics?

Egerton Ryerson has been erased. Honestly they should have renamed this 'university' to Toronto Adult Extended High School.

Next big ones on the list of atonement are Dundas (Henry Dundas delayed abolition of slavery), Vaughan (Benjamin Vaughan was an owner of slaves) - and then smaller offences in Gladstone (the great Liberal PM William Gladstone had a connection to slave ownership), Russell, Goulburn.

And the mother of all targets - anything named Victoria.

"Some Chinese internet users criticized what they said were racist depictions of people with small, wide-set eyes, while others objected to scenes that appear to show girls being groped or boys with bulging pants. An inaccurate rendering of the Chinese flag and a drawing of a boy wearing the U.S. flag colors of red, white and blue also drew accusations that the publisher was sending a pro-Western, anti-China message."

It should be self-evident to one and all, this is a cheap gimmick and get out of jail card for the elites who with a couple of well placed utterances do not have to change or make any sacrifice at all to their exploitative ways:

"Instead of 'Was there not one Black person in the room when these decisions were made?' we should ask, 'how many Black people were in the room?'"

Why is it only black people can make decisions for black people?

That's was they really think about them: happy taco latynx munching birthing peoples.

They don't believe any of it I'm sure, they just think this is a means and ideology of controlling the herd. And when the lose the latino vote in the mid-terms they'll close that border overnight and be bussing them back like the deportees of old.

For someone who is trying to avoid US current affairs like SPAM, you sure have loads of opinionated views about it.

"But the agency has also faced criticism for naming its signature project after former NASA Administrator James Webb, who previously had served as undersecretary of state during the Truman administration, when the federal government systematically purged its ranks of LGBTQ employees. "

Now we're going to have to replace this telescope.

Harry Truman hates LGBTQ too?

Going to see red coats at Fort York is a rite of passage for kids in my hometown. It's a symbolic representation of the defence of the old city of York in the battles that started after the War of 1812.

Now funding has stopped because the event has colonial narratives and doesn't tell the story of inclusivity and all this other f*cking rubbish. Canada was a a colony in 1813. Dominion status came in 1867. You cannot go back and rewrite f*cking history to include narratives and 21st century sensibilities so it's more palatable to vocal minorities. The whole story was about those in the British empire resisting joining the American independence movement and maintaining their loyalty to the Crown. Nowhere in this history is a place to give equal voice & say to all cultures, people, ethnicities, baby Muhammad and baby Moses. You can't rewrite history to give everyone a place. Cancel culture at its f@cking worse.


Fort York backers frustrated by grant cancellation​

This summer, the City of Toronto suspended its annual $10,000 grant to the Friends of Fort York, the non-profit organization that manages the historic site.
Funding under review as city embarks on plan to refocus museums on inclusivity, accessibility and reconciliation
Fort York’s guard program, in which high-school and university students don military uniforms and re-enact life during the War of 1812, was cancelled this year after the City of Toronto suspended its funding.

The city put its $10,000 annual grant to the Friends of Fort York, the non-profit organization that manages the site and uses the money to fund the program, on hold earlier this year. It also launched an external review that will look at how the group fits into a new museum policy that focuses on Indigenous reconciliation, inclusivity, equitable representation, accessibility, and sustainability. The city declined to say which par of the policy triggered the review.

The Fort York Guard, which features actors dressed as soldiers from the Canadian Regiment of Fencible Infantry has staged reenactments involving marching, drums and the firing of muskets every July and August since 1934. The program has operated with funding from the city since 1999.

....."We're kind of keen on finding out the reasons why the guard program was cut because it goes back for many, many years," Mr. Cranston said, adding that the loss of funding forced the Friends of Fort York to let go 20 summer staff. "We believe it's a very important part of the interpretation of the historic site, so it is disappointing." The group is aligned with the ideas of decolonization and has a "terrific" relationship with the local First Nations and Indigenous people, Mr. Cranston said...

....Cheryl Blackman, general manager of economic development for the city, said the strategic plan is designed to make sure museums tell a "a narrative that is more fulsome." She cited the city's recently introduced Awakenings program, a series of art projects created within Toronto History Museums by racialized artists, as an example of it in action. The plan is not designed to eliminate European history from museums, she said, but rather showcase a complete picture of Canadian history that includes people of all backgrounds. "What we're talking about is colonial narratives, and to have colonial narratives that only speak to the experiences of one community, that is actually an oversight," Ms. Blackman said.

Fort York was attacked by 2,700 invading American soldiers on April 27, 1813. Defending British forces and Mississauga and Ojibwe warriors were outnumbered and defeated. Americans captured the site, completely razing it months later.

"Twenty-one new members joined last year, six of whom are black.

The organisation has also taken on more than 100 new voters, including - for the first time - those based outside of the US."

Come one come all. We have foreigners. We have visible minorities. We have women. That makes our awards legit.

What do people call them when they're in a fetus? It's a girl, it's a boy...it's a genderless fetus that has a choice to choose whatever it wants to be.

"'They're raising him like a little white kid,' she said. 'I was like, 'This kid needs a beatdown. Let me take him around the corner and then I'll bring him back."'

Hispanic people see themselves as white? Visible ethnic minorities are racist to each other?
