A psychologist employed by a federal agency is being penalized for speaking out against gender ideology. Three psychologists working in the Department of Veterans' Affairs (VA) penned an op-ed late last month warning of the danger posed by allowing biological men to access women's bathrooms and medical exam rooms.

"I documented 18 separate incidences of either vandalism, theft, or hostilities in the year 2023 alone," Rob Rotola, pastor of Word of Life Church in Wichita, Kansas, said. "And that is, honestly, with ignoring some of the smaller things that didn't even make the list."
