‘TERF means “made a male-to-female transgender person unhappy”’ from this wonderful post by transwidow. So true.


Dental dysphoria: Transgender medical procedures trump essential dental care across the US

Why does Medicaid pay for sex changes and not for dental care? Well-researched article looking at the costs of government funded transition medical services.
Sidenote: I live in Canada on disability so my dental care is paid for. Which is good because as I get older I keep getting multiple cavities. 4 last month! 😫

Tax time rolls around again, all too soon, and as I tally up the itemized deductions for my 2016 return, I realize, to my sadness but not my shock, that once again this year, our dental expenses are close to $13,000. Between four adult children needing a variety of dental services, and the fact that my husband and I are beset with age-related dental woes, some months I think I pay our dentist’s office rent all by myself. Although my husband has a generous medical plan through his employer, it does not cover dental expenses, other than those incurred in an accident, and this is typical of many employer-provided benefits packages. So, we pay.

And when I pay, I take a moment to think about the people who can’t pay – but they still have teeth. What do they do? What happens to them?

First, if you’ve ever…

New Zealand Man Gavin “Laurel” Hubbard Sweeps Women’s Weightlifting Competition

This is unbelievable. I’m not super interested in sports, but this story is shocking. More of the male take over via transgender of women’s sports, pushing women out. I’m old enough to remember when there was no women’s sports. Except for a form of pseudo-hockey called ringette. 🙄


Gavin/Laurel Hubbard (center)

Wealthy New Zealander Gavin Hubbard, now calling himself “Laurel”, bumped two women from their Olympic weightlifting qualifying slots after he decided to compete in the women’s category. Hubbard is the son of cereal magnate and former Auckland mayor Dick Hubbard, best known for his position against allowing gay people to marry or raise their own biological children. [1]

Pink shoes = Female

Gavin “Laurel” Hubbard, 39, was a one-time nationally ranked weightlifter in his twenties [2] but he failed to make his mark competing against other males. He remained active in the sport, funding various events and serving as the Executive Officer of OWNZ (Olympic Wrestling of New Zealand) until his position was eliminated last year. [3]

Hubbard responded to the loss of his authority by funding a new state-of-the-art weightlifting facility to host and sponsor the OWNZ competition itself. [4]

Gender Dysphoria and Transgender

Here’s the link to my new video. This is a different kind. I used the free Adobe Spark Video app (also available for desktop via browser) to make a kind of little documentary.

This one asks who has gender dysphoria? Not as many people as trans would have us believe. It’s four minutes long. And you need the sound up.



How charming
