But the company’s plans to occupy a...

    FULL TITLE: Abortion Activist Barbra Streisand Blames Trump for Parkland Shooting: He “Brings Out the Violence in People” Abortion advocates are no strangers to making ironic comments. Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards does that all the time — saying Planned Parenthood believes every person has a right to life, for example. But longtime abortion activist Barbra Streisand is the latest to make a very ironic statement. Although she’s steadfastly supports the violence associated with killing unborn children in abortions, Streisand is blaming president Donald Trump for the Parkland school shooting in Florida. Her evidence? President Trump supposedly brings out violence...

    Is fame giving delusions of grandeur to David Hogg, the Parkland student who’s become a media celebrity as an advocate of more gun control? During a long interview with Joy Reid on her MSNBC show today, Hogg at one point looked directly into the camera and said that in contrast with several other companies that had offered discounts to NRA members: “FedEx still has not dropped their deal with the NRA. The CEO is one of the biggest donors to the NRA. And we have to take care of them. And as a result, if they aren’t going to, we’re...

Rippon was named to the U.S. Olympic team first, making history as the first openly gay man to represent the country in the Winter Olympics. Kenworthy was named to the team a few weeks later.

    As a queer femme of color, I keep close relationships with people who go beyond allyship; they’re true accomplices in the fight against white supremacy, queerphobia, and misogyny. If you’re not going to support marginalized folks, then we can’t be friends, let alone date. The personal is political. Beyond the lovely cushioning, happiness and support that we receive from our platonic relationships (which are, in all honesty, soul-feeding and essential), feminists also date! But there are questions we have to ask before we get close to someone. The following list of questions is applicable to all relationships — certainly not...

    Nearly three dozen House Republicans asked House Speaker Paul Ryan Tuesday to pass legislation this year that creates a permanent legislative solution to the expiring Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. "While we firmly believe that Congress must work to address other issues without our broken immigration system, it is imperative that Republicans and Democrats come together to solve this problem now and not wait until next year," the 34 lawmakers wrote in a letter to Ryan. "Reaching across the aisle to protect DACA recipients before the holidays is the right thing to do."

    The chickens of the era of moral relativism are coming home to roost in the scandals that have rocked the studios of Hollywood, the green rooms of media moguls, and the cloak rooms of Congress. Are the cases of Matt Lauer, Harvey Weinstein, John Conyers, and Charlie Rose et al any surprise in an era where traditional marriage and fidelity to one spouse of the opposite sex have been under assault and routinely mocked? We live in any age of transgendered restrooms, where transgendered athletes like Caitlyn Jenner are given courage awards by sports channels like ESPN. Harder work is...
