Bill C-16, Canada. Twitter
  • Gender Identity has become an important issue in most western society, arising out of liberal ideas
  • Canada, known to be extremely liberal under PM Justin Trudeau, has passed the Bill C-16
  • The bill does not guarantee an awful lot except for endowing trans and non-binary people with the right to be called by their demanded pronoun, violation of which is harassment and punishable

Canada, June 16, 2017: Canada has passed the Bill C-16 after months of discussions and debates. It seeks to identify multiple gender identities in an attempt to uplift the transgender communities.

While the trans-Canadians and non-binary people celebrate the victory, many are not aware that the bill is dangerous to the order of the society. It attempts to curtail Freedom of Speech, it promotes construct, and it is authoritarian.


What is Bill C-16? It is an attempt to protect the gender identity of the individual. It integrates “gender expression” and “gender identity” in the Canadian Human Rights and the Criminal Code. The Senate has passed the bill and now awaits the royal assent in the House of Commons to become a law.

To prevent discrimination on the basis of gender identity, the government will approve certain terms that citizens will be compelled to use to address the non-binary people. These terms MUST be used.

These government approved gender pronouns MUST be used by employers, professors, officials and everyone else, otherwise, it amounts to hate crime with legal consequences.

What’s Good? Well, it stands for anti-discrimination of trans and non-binary people in different places like Universities and employments. Transgenders are subject to hate and violence in numerous spheres of life.

So Whats Wrong? It is flawed in multiple ways and it is dangerous. The bill is not a progressive step in preventing discrimination, rather, far from it. It is an attempt to include in the Criminal Code something that is not definable.

The government wants to alter the English language so a small proportion of people feel safe and comfortable. In addition to the sensible He-She, His-Hers, Him-Her, nonsensical invented pronouns such as Ze, Hir, Per, etc (over 50 new pronouns) will be added. Absolutely ridiculous!

Bill C-16 is compelled speech. It forces the individual to speak certain government approved terms. It cannot be called a right when its just oppression on the larger section of the society. It will start to affect people. Freedom of speech, essence of democracy, will be compromised!

On a Facebook page, someone rightly stated-

“In Justin Trudeau’s Canada, where diversity and political correctness reign, legislation like Bill C-16 can get one thinking about a future where everyone must memorize 56 new pronouns and apply them correctly to people who drift in and out of various gender identities”

People are now endowed with the right to demand that you call them by a certain pronoun that they feel safe with. Can the advocates of Bill C-16 even comprehend as to what adverse effects this will have on human interaction? It is a weapon by the left to bring political correctness.

J.C Borque says “Telling me how to speak is just as bad as telling me to shut up.” Empirical evidence suggests when you mandate such a thing it makes people more prejudiced.

The bill and the underlying arguement is unscientific. It is a joke on the sincere efforts of biological science. The scientific evidence is overwhelming that biological factors play a role in determining gender identity.The Ontario Human Rights Code defines gender identity as “a person’s internal or individual experience of their gender.” This is wrong. Gender is not about your individual experiences.

Violators of the Bill C-16 could be charged with hate crimes and hate speech, repercussions of which include fine. Failure to pay fine will result in prison, and taking up ‘anti-bias’ training.

Bill C-16 is based on individual experience and feelings.

Critics of Bill C-16 do not promote discrimination of Trans or Non-binary people, however, they are against the legislation of mandatory speech. They explain that government approved pronouns are not gonna do the trans community any good, neither in the short run nor in the long run.

In the trans community, there are many important issues to be discussed for and against hate crime legislation, instead, we are changing pronouns.

Gender identity debate is a growing discussion in the western society. Young students are campaigning for additional personal pronouns. A similar bill is being discussed in New York, which already has 31 protected genders.

Bangladesh over the years show that the state has failed in its duty to protect minorities

If humanity is hurt, God is hurt.

Religion without compassion might give way to hatred. Compassion with a "self-interest" motive is completely irreligious. But of late, some of the religions have departed from those basic human values. Love and compassion are for only those who follow their "specific" faith. Very sadly, the religions are up as trading commodities in the world of proselytization. Better preachers attract more followers. Of course, no issue if they are not vying for their religious "supremacy". But the ground reality is utterly different. The claim for exclusive supremacy has become the first commandment --- a real bone of contention among the existing religions. In the name of religion, we have polluted our minds. we have corrupted our souls. We have also gone so much astray that God must have now shut his gateway to heaven!

Taking out time for family has become very difficult as people are pretty busy in daily life and find very little time to spend with their loved ones. Planning a family vacation is an excellent way through which the whole family can step away from their daily life and have fun. You can find many destinations for a family vacation, but there is no place that can beat Aruba.

Milky Way galaxy as seen from Chitkul Valley

NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory has for the first time spotted signs of a planet transiting a star outside of the Milky Way galaxy, opening up a new avenue to search for exoplanets at greater distances than ever before.

The possible exoplanet -- or planets outside of our Solar System -- candidate is located in the spiral galaxy Messier 51 (M51), also called the Whirlpool Galaxy because of its distinctive profile, NASA said in a statement.

Astronomers have, so far, found all other known exoplanets and exoplanet candidates in the Milky Way galaxy, almost all of them less than about 3,000 light-years from Earth.

An exoplanet in M51 would be about 28 million light-years away, meaning it would be thousands of times farther away than those in the Milky Way, NASA said.

"We are trying to open up a whole new arena for finding other worlds by searching for planet candidates at X-ray wavelengths, a strategy that makes it possible to discover them in other galaxies," said Rosanne Di Stefano of the Center for Astrophysics at Harvard and Smithsonian (CfA) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, who led the study.

The findings are published in the journal Nature Astronomy.

The exoplanet candidate was spotted in a binary system called M51-ULS-1, located in M51. This binary system contains a black hole or neutron star orbiting a companion star with a mass about 20 times that of the Sun. The X-ray transit they found using Chandra data lasted about three hours, during which the X-ray emission decreased to zero.

Based on this and other information, the team estimates the exoplanet candidate in M51-ULS-1 would be roughly the size of Saturn and orbit the neutron star or black hole at about twice the distance of Saturn from the Sun.

The team looked for X-ray transits in three galaxies beyond the Milky Way galaxy, using both Chandra and the European Space Agency's XMM-Newton. Their search covered 55 systems in M51, 64 systems in Messier 101 (the "Pinwheel" galaxy), and 119 systems in Messier 104 (the "Sombrero" galaxy).

However, more data would be needed to verify the interpretation as an extragalactic exoplanet. One challenge is that the planet candidate's large orbit means it would not cross in front of its binary partner again for about 70 years, thwarting any attempts for a confirming observation for decades, NASA said.

Named in honor of the late Indian-American Nobel laureate, Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, the Chandra X-ray Observatory is the world's most powerful X-ray telescope. It has eight times greater resolution and is able to detect sources more than 20-times fainter than any previous X-ray telescope.

Known to the world as Chandra (which means "moon" or "luminous" in Sanskrit), Chandrasekhar was widely regarded as one of the foremost astrophysicists of the twentieth century. (IANS/JB)
