(LifeSiteNews) – One by one, spaces designated specifically for girls are caving to the transgender lobby and repeating the tired mantra: “Trans girls are girls!” That means that gender-confused boys who believe themselves to be girls must be given access to female-only spaces. Australia’s Girl Guides permits boys to join, change, and sleep with the girls. The Girl Scouts implemented the same policy back when the transgender movement was just gathering steam back in 2015.  

In high schools, girls have risked bladder infections to avoid sharing bathrooms with boys identifying as girls; the parental rights movement in the U.S. got a surge of adrenaline at the news that a girl was sexually assaulted by a boy in a skirt.

Boys being permitted into girls’ bathrooms and changing rooms is one of the animating issues of the parental rights movement. Saying an adult can do what they want with their body and get a sex change will earn a shrug from most adults; saying that their daughters must share private space with a boy calling himself a girl, is another. 

The latest institution to fall to the transgender lobby is Harpeth Hall, an elite, private all-girls school in Nashville, Tennessee. According to The Tennessean, which obtained a letter sent by the Board of Trustees to parents, Harpeth Hall will now be accepting not just female students — but any student identifying as female. According to the letter: 

Harpeth Hall is a girls school. The school culture is unique and distinctly about girls, complete with the use of references to students as girls and young women and the collective use of female pronouns. Any student who identifies as a girl may apply to our school.”

The Atlantic has launched an open attack on the Rosary, and won't stop there unless we push back today.

All praying Christians are at risk unless we ACT NOW and send a powerful message that sacrilegious images and anti-Catholic smears in a major publication will not be tolerated.

The article, which has been edited significantly since publication, scaremongers about "militant Catholics", implying they are capable of extreme violence because the Rosary is used as a weapon in the fight against evil spirits.

Editors have already changed the original image and headline because it was clearly anti-Catholic, but the article remains in place despite the unfounded smears about the Rosary inspiring violence. 

What The Atlantic published is just the tip of the iceberg: it's an indication of what the entire mainstream media establishment thinks of traditional Catholic prayers and Christians as a whole. To the left-wing establishment, Christian values stand in the way of...

  • LGBTQ agenda
  • race-based hiring and Critical Race Theory
  • "affirming" gender-theory and sex-changes for minors
  • climate change alarmism
  • abortion and sexual promiscuity

These, and so much more, are the values the media want to push on you and your family, and demonizing prayer is an essential step to succeeding.

Do not let them win — join the national outcry demanding accountability from The Atlantic. Force The Atlantic to issue a full retraction immediately!

SEE THE ATLANTIC'S ORIGINAL ANTI-CATHOLIC HEADLINE:

 

The Atlantic openly labeled the Catholic rosary an "extremist symbol." However, the publication began scrambling, changing their headline to stop the initial outrage.

While this may seem like a start, The Atlantic has not changed the thrust of their message: traditional Christians are a threat to the liberal agenda and must be ostracized from society.

THE ATLANTIC TRIED DAMAGE CONTROL:

In their new version, The Atlantic is trying to paint "gun culture" as hijacking the rosary... a clever move to disguise the magazine's feelings on both guns and prayer.

This pathetic attempt at playing both sides will not succeed. The damage has been done, and we need you to send a firm and demanding message: Demand that The Atlantic issue a full retraction of this anti-Catholic diatribe.

SIGN now and SHARE with everyone you know — only a tremedous outcry will silence the propagandists running our major news publications and turn the tide of the mainstream narrative!

What makes you a girl? Your pronouns, apparently. It’s just that simple. In fact, girls who identify as boys are not permitted to enroll, with the Board of Trustees informing parents that: “We see this acknowledgement as the ultimate form of respect: an understanding that we support the individual and the student’s gender identity.”  

To be consistent with this nonsense, the letter also indicates that parents of non-binary children who use the pronouns “they/them” may also consider applying. Both “girls” and “none of the above” are welcome at Harpeth Hall. 

In response to widespread criticism of the new policy, Harpeth Hall’s director of marketing and communications Jessica Bliss decided to play dumb and pretend there is no new policy. “We are and always have been an all-girls independent school,” she told The Tennessean blithely. “There has been no change to Harpeth Hall’s admission application process which is open to any female student. 

That, of course, is just a lengthy way of chanting: “Trans girls are girls! Trans girls are girls!” In short: “I don’t understand the question, bigot.”  

According to The Daily Caller, Harpeth Hall isn’t the only historically all-girls school to throw open its doors to students with penises. Barnard College in New York City also amended their admissions policy, welcoming applicants who “consistently live and identify as women.”  

Since you can now “live as a woman” without experiencing anything women experience, possessing a fully male body with fully functioning male genitalia, and wearing whatever you like, this really boils down to filling out the right forms. Becoming a girl is easy to do these days, and institutions set up to cater specifically to girls will have to catch up once all of the new girls begin to show up. 

Back in the 1990s, Hollywood delighted in creating dirty campus comedies around the old shtick of boys dressing up as girls to gain access to the female change rooms or bathrooms. I’ll bet those are cancelled now, too. The premise contains some painful truths.
