The Associated Press Stylebook has released a ” Transgender Coverage Topical Guide ” that orders journalists to “use the term sex (or gender) assigned at birth” and to “let your sources guide you on how they want to be identified.”
The National Review reports that AP’s stylebook has served as the default style manual for most news organizations for decades and “appears to explicitly embrace the language and claims of transgender activists.” The Associated Press has been active in shaping language since the 1865 assassination of Republican President Lincoln, and describes its stylebook as a “must have for writers, editors, students, and professionals.”
In 2017, the AP Stylebook adopted the use of the singular “they” if someone “prefers a gender neutral pronoun.”
The AP continued to contribute to what The Post Millennial described as the degradation of language with their adoption of gender ideology and rapidly changing word definitions. Similarly, in 2020 the AP said the word “riot” should not be used to describe actual riots .
In its Transgender Topical Guide, AP said “Journalists on all beats must be able to write about and interview transgender people using accurate, sensitive, unbiased language.”
Their argument for “unbiased language” includes the scientifically inaccurate statement “a person’s sex and gender are usually assigned at birth by parents or attendants and can turn out to be inaccurate. Experts say gender is a spectrum, not a binary structure consisting of only men and women, that can vary among societies and can change over time.”
The AP Stylebook, which is essentially an English grammar guide, also affirmed medical “gender-confirmation procedures” and “gender-affirming care,” are treatments that “can improve psychological well-being and reduce suicidal behavior.”
It also says the “The World Professional Association for Transgender Health recently lowered its recommended minimum age for starting gender transition treatment, including sex hormones and […]

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
