    NEW YORK - After 12 years advocating for abortion rights, Joe Solmonese might have opted for a less divisive field of work. Instead, he is taking over leadership of the largest national gay-rights group at a time when the same-sex marriage debate rivals abortion for volatility and virulence. "My challenge is to talk about why the equality we seek is not just important to our community, but should be important to everyone," Solmonese said. "I have to believe in the optimism and fair-mindedness of the American people." Solmonese was named last week as the new president of the Washington-based Human...

    (CNN)Jeffrey Sandusky, the son of convicted sex abuser and former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky, pleaded guilty Friday to all 14 counts of child sexual abuse against him.

The 14 counts included soliciting sex from a child younger than 16 and soliciting child pornography. According to the district attorney's office, Sandusky will become a Tier III sex offender, the highest level in Pennsylvania. The charges involve incidents with two girls, one in 2013 and one...

    Seattle Mayor Ed Murray resigned from his position Wednesday afternoon after a fifth accusation of child abuse came to light, this time from his own family. "While the allegations against me are not true, it is important that my personal issues do not affect the ability of our city government to conduct the public's business. ... It is best for the city if I step aside. To the people of this special city and to my dedicated staff, I am sorry for this painful situation," Murray said in a statement. The Seattle Times reported on Tuesday that the latest accusations...

    How young is too young to introduce a child to the concept of gender identity? That is a question the Rocklin Academy Schools district tried to handle after a young student revealed herself as transgender. Some parents applauded the district's efforts while others questioned whether it was handled properly. Ankur Dhawan's 5-year-old daughter was in the classroom that day. She came home and talked about what she learned. "She said, 'Well, we learned about a girl in a boy's body,'" Dhawan said. "This turned out to be a fairly decent way of introducing a topic that I wouldn't otherwise know...

    SEATTLE - Mayor Ed Murray abruptly announced his resignation from his post Tuesday, about two hours after The Seattle Times reported that his cousin said Murray had repeatedly molested him in the 1970s when he was a teenager. Murray's cousin became the fifth man to accuse the mayor of sexual abuse. Earlier allegations of sexual abuse prompted Murray to drop out of his campaign for re-election but he had steadfastly refused to resign until now. He said his resignation would be effective Wednesday at 5 p.m. “While the allegations against me are not true, it is important that my...

    PARIS, France (NBC News) — Disneyland Paris has apologized to a 3-year-old British boy who was told he couldn’t dress up as a princess because he’s a boy. Noah McLean-Glass is a huge fan of Elsa from the hit film “Frozen.” His mother says he loves to wear his “Elsa dress” – even to bed. When his family planned a trip to Disneyland Paris, they thought it would be fun for him to take part in the “princess for a day” event. But his mother was shocked when she was told boys could not take part – that the event was...

    TEXAS -- One of the most eloquent opponents of Texas' proposed gender bathroom law began identifying as a girl four years ago, when she was 3. It was at that age that Frank and Rachel Gonzales started to realize their child, Libby, wasn't living the life she was born to live. It wasn't always clear to them how best to support their first born. While on a family trip to California, Rachel took Libby -- then still called by her birth name -- to the toy store. It was there that things "came to a boil." "I said, 'You can...

    VERNON -- Rebekah Bruesehoff hasn't always been comfortable in her own skin. Around the age of 7, she talked about not wanting to be alive, her mother, Jamie Bruesehoff, said. "She didn't enjoy anything, she had anxiety, was really distressed and depression came with that," Jamie said. "She just kind of lost the light in her." It wasn't until after Rebekah hit a crisis point that her family became aware of the reason for the distress -- her gender. She'd been born a boy, but in her heart, she knew she was a girl. Two years after her transition, Rebekah says much has...

    In baseball, it’s three strikes, you’re out. But there’s unfortunately no such guaranteed result in Kansas for an abortionist who has now lost her state medical license for the third time and could appeal the ruling again. In a quiet release online July 7th, the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts issued its third order revoking the license of Ann Kristin Neuhaus, who was issuing “second opinions” approving post-viability abortions in Kansas from 1999-2006. The Board also maintained its demand for her to pay approximately $31,000 in legal expenses–which is only a fraction of the costs accrued in pursuing this...

    Liberals love to terrorize children. They were at it again on Tuesday at a Pinellas Park, Florida, Chick Fil A fast food restaurant where a group of knife-wielding vegan protesters staged a mock slaughter of cows inside the chicken-themed restaurant while parents protected their children. The occasion was Chick Fil A’s ‘cow appreciation day’ where customers who dress as a cow are given free food.
