    I googled "Florence High School Colorado trangender" and also found:

    Anti-LGBT Group Admits It Invented Story About Transgender Student Harassing Classmates [UPDATED]

    https://thinkprogress.org/anti-lgbt-...-d66f40c01517/
    It got me curious and admittedly, Think Progress is the left wing version of Info Wars ... but there are plenty of references to the incident. Seems that the school conducted an investigation and found the accusations unsubstantiated. The girls continued accusing the transgender girl of harassment, including reports of incident on days that the transgender girl wasn't at school; at that point the school told them to knock it off or be removed from the sports teams. To me it sounds like a weird correlation to the Justice Kavenaugh hearing:

    -allegations
    -investigation
    -no evidence
    -school closed the investigation (better than the Kavenaugh) hearing
    -allegations continued ... including at least one that was demonstrably false
    -girls were told to stop or face discipline

    I don't fall into the "all women must be believed" or "all accusers must be believed" camp because ... sometimes people make things up to advance an agenda. There was more to the story ... but finding it probably depends on if you have already decided you want to hear.

    Very annoying to even turn on the news, which I don't. However, whenever I'm at the gym and glance over to the TV with CNN (only news channel they show), the banner at the bottom of the screen is ALWAYS something against Trump. I used to actually defend some of these 'news' sources, but it's clear there's an agenda...and it's not to communicate unbiased facts. It's to influence how people vote. Sickening.
