In a commencement speech which caught the attention of many news outlets, Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker attacked “dangerous gender ideologies” as the sort of “deadly sin of Pride that has an entire month dedicated to it.” He contrasted that pride in self with a pride in God, without realizing that in so doing, he is taking an unhealthy pride in himself for his pride in his religious beliefs. For pushing traditional gender roles as a one-size-fits-all solution, Harrison Butker gets a Twit Award. This story comes from Them.

Moms For Liberty have joined with 20 state Attorneys General in a lawsuit against the new guidence on Title IX from the Biden administration.

Valentina Gomez, a candidate for Secretary of State in Missouri, has a new ad out. In it, she says, “In America, you can be anything you want. So don’t be weak and gay. Stay f—ing hard.” It appears that she does not even say why one should avoid being “weak and gay,” nor why being gay is being weak. For coming up with a slogan which gives no reason why it should be followed, but merely insults others, Valentina Gomez gets a Twit Award. This story comes from Them.

Dr. Hillary Cass, the author of the Cass Review, claims in an interview that her critics are “misleading the public.” But, she seems to have arbitrarily chosen studies which she approves of, studies which have the same design flaw as the studies which she rejects, but which come to the conclusion she wants to support. Further, she suggests that U.S. organizations support gender-affirming medical care for minors in order to support bullying by trans people, despite the fact that U.S. medical organizations cite studies which show the results are better–studies which Dr. Cass rejects. For projection, and for defending questionable research as if it were unflawed, Dr. Hilary Cass gets a Twit Award. LGBTQ Nation has this story.

As we mentioned in the news, the government of Peru declared transgender people to be mentally ill. For reaching a conclusion which mental health organizations reject, the government of Peru gets a Twit Award. This story comes from PinkNews.
