  • Coming to terms with blood donations and men who sleep with men

    As scores lay injured in Florida hospitals after the Orlando shooting, potential donors inundated blood banks, offering what they could. For some, however, the hourslong wait ended in disappointment. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has strict guidelines about who can donate blood; among those restricted are people who have had certain diseases, those who have traveled to certain countries and men who have slept with men, or as the FDA refers to them, MSM, within the past year.

    Donald Trump Jr. slammed US Olympic medalist Adam Rippon for the athlete’s criticism of Vice President Mike Pence’s position on gay rights. The president’s eldest son was responding to a report that claimed Rippon — an openly gay figure skater — did not want his Olympic experience to be “about Mike Pence.” “Really?” Trump Jr. retorted. “Then Perhaps you shouldn’t have spent the past few weeks talking about him. I haven’t heard him mention you once???” Rippon, 28, helped the US win a bronze medal in figure skating on Sunday. He has been openly critical of Pence leading the US...

    A Staten Island elementary school scrapped its traditional father-daughter dance this coming Friday because of the Department of Education’s new gender guidelines.The DOE ordered schools to “eliminate” any “gender-based” practices like the dance in a March 2017 policy update unless they serve a “clear” educational purpose.The PS 65 shindig, set for Feb. 9, was abruptly postponed until next month after the school’s PTA realized the dance would run afoul of the rules.“Until we understand what we are legally permitted to do, we need to table this event,” PTA president Toni Bennett wrote to a private school-parents group on Facebook.Some parents...

    Parents are furious after a California elementary school posted a bulletin board that addressed issues like sexual identity and encouraged children as young as four-years-old to break out of gender stereotypes. The bulletin board at Rancho Romero Elementary School also featured nationally-syndicated sex columnist Dan Savage as a role model for children. Mr. Savage also hosts an annual porn festival. “For him to be a role model for four-year-olds to 11-year-olds is utterly disgusting, one anonymous parent said on the Todd Starnes Radio Show. “He’s not someone you want to put up at an elementary school.” The bulletin board included...

    For youngest readers, a teddy bear named Thomas would rather be called Tilly — it's 'child abuse,' says one doctor of this overreach. The Wall Street Journal editorial board recently called out Washington State Gov. Jay Inslee for overstepping his executive authority on climate change. But it turns out he’s not the only one in the Evergreen State guilty of overrreach. Teachers in a dozen elementary schools across Seattle have been testing a new set of books and lessons on gender diversity, expression and identity — topics many would agree are outrageously inappropriate for the classroom, especially for young children,...

    Once again, we are left scratching our heads at just what standards Facebook actually has. We know they write a bunch of gobbledygook, through it together and enforce it rather, shall we say, biased? The latest example of this comes as conservative blogger Elizabeth Johnston, also known as “The Activist Mommy,” discovered a group on Facebook that is pro-homosexual that is named, “I will find The Activist Mommy and burn whoever runs it alive.” Right there, isn't that a threat? Isn't it open harassment? Doesn't it imply the desire to murder a woman who has not physically attacked anyone in...

    Why should women get to wear all the pretty dresses? Why can't men also flounce about in the feathers, lace or fine embroidery if they fancy? These are the questions being posed by the daring young Spanish label, Palomo Spain, whose flamboyant show kicked off the Paris men's fashion week late Tuesday.

    HONG KONG, January 2, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A priest in Hong Kong canceled a planned ‘LGBT’ Christmas Midnight Mass at the last minute after the diocese’ auxiliary bishop reminded him that homosexual acts are “sinful” and “serious violations of chastity.” Auxiliary Bishop Rev. Joseph Ha, OFM, at the urging of Hong Kong Bishop Michael Yeung, investigated the planned event before speaking to the priest, according to a report in the Hong Kong Free Press (HKFP). Compassion HK LGBTQ Catholics Union, the group sponsoring the Mass, stated on Facebook that bishops in other countries permit LGBT Masses, so “Why is it...

    A former Union High School teacher who in 2011 called homosexuality a "perverted spirit" that "breeds like cancer" has agreed to a three-year suspension of her teaching certificates. The posts on Jenye "Viki" Knox's personal Facebook page eventually caused the special education teacher and faculty adviser to the school's Bible study group to resign. She later filed a federal lawsuit claiming school officials had violated her free speech and religious rights.

    January 3, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Fewer than half of 18- to 21-year-olds worldwide think others should be free to express non-violent opinions that are offensive to minorities, according to a study highlighted by The Economist. The data come from the Varkey Foundation and was released in February 2017. Only about half of the world’s young people support free speech, it revealed, but nearly two-thirds support same-sex “marriage.” The study asked two questions about free speech: whether “people should have a right to non-violent free speech in all circumstances even when what they say is offensive to a religion” and whether...

    Vice President Pence arrived in Aspen, Colo., this week for a holiday vacation — but not without encountering a silent protest from his neighbors in the liberal ski resort town. “Make America Gay Again,” reads a rainbow banner posted on the stone pillar at the end of the driveway of the home where Pence and his wife, Karen, are staying. A dispatcher with the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office referred The Washington Post to the White House press office Saturday, but Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Buglione told the Aspen Times that Pence’s next-door neighbors posted the banner shortly after the vice president...
  • Activists to copy Illinois 'gay panic defense' ban elsewhere

    Starting in January, Illinois will bar a rare criminal defense allowing the use of a victim’s sexual orientation as justification for violent crime, a ban gay rights advocates say they will attempt to replicate in about half a dozen states next year. Defense attorneys will no longer be able to mount the so-called “gay panic defense” in Illinois, the second state after California to prohibit the tactic. It isn’t common, but one study shows it has surfaced in about half of all U.S. states and has been used with some success. Advocates say bans are necessary because crimes against gay...

    Everyday Feminism ^ | December 8, 2017 | Lara Witt
    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.

    It’s astounding how many defenses of the state’s position in Masterpiece Cakeshop depend on misrepresentation and misconceptions. Last week I wrote about the most common misrepresentation — that Jack Phillips discriminated on the basis of sexual orientation when he refused to design a custom cake for a same-sex-wedding celebration. After all, he served all customers — regardless of race, sex, or sexual orientation. He just consistently refused to design cakes that advanced messages he disagreed with. No person of any identity has the legal authority to compel an artist to use his talents to advance a cause the artist...

    That case, Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, takes aim at a Colorado law that bars discrimination based on perceived sexual orientation in places serving the public. Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, says the law violates his free speech rights by forcing him to “create expression that violates his sincerely held beliefs about marriage.” The dispute has attracted a lot of attention from the business community, including an amicus brief signed by 35 companies including Amazon (AMZN), Pfizer (PFE), and Apple (AAPL), which asked the court to rule against Phillips. Another group with an interest in the...
  • Religious Freedom on Trial: Pray for Jack Phillips and the U.S. Supreme Court

    This coming Tuesday, the U.S. Supreme Court has the chance to set the record straight on religious freedom for everyone in the U.S. In 2012, Jack Phillips of Colorado's Masterpiece Cake Shop refused to provide a cake for a same-sex "wedding" based on his faith convictions. That case – Masterpiece Cake Shop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission – is now before the nation's high court. Jack Phillips doesn't design cakes for all events-he never has. He has a set of values based on his religious beliefs-a moral code-that guides his life, including his work. When an event conflicts with Jack's...

    Are you a straight man who likes women? Do you kiss and cuddle with your male friends just for funsies? No? Well apparently, you’re the weirdo. Because according to Attitude Magazine, it is totally normal – common, even – for straight men to canoodle with their straight male friends. To the confusion of straight men and people of logic everywhere, Attitude ran a befuddling article entitled: "New Study Finds Straight Men in Bromances Often Kiss and Cuddle." (For those unfamiliar, a "bromance" is a slang term for a close friendship between two heterosexual guys.) Attitude claims:

    RUSH: By the way, I’m told Twitter is blowing up. I’ll tell you, folks, some of this stuff, I’m just getting sick of it. There is apparently a children’s book depicting a gay Santa in a biracial marriage, and now a gay nativity scene is being popularized called gaytivity, two Josephs kneeling over the baby Jesus. And there’s an article in a feminist publication called Refinery 29, describing the scene. “What if it wasn’t Mary and Joesph who met their child that night, but instead Murray and Joseph? Or Marty and Joseph?” Because, after all, they say, Jesus had two...

    Australia's "marriage equality" campaign triumphed in this month's referendum under the slogan "Let's Get It Done". In other words, it's inevitable, so why waste another five years arguing about it? Let's get it done, and over, and move on to transgender bathrooms or whatever's next. That's how "progressives" think about progress. As a certain author wrote long ago in a certain bestselling book: We assume that social progress is like technological progress: it can't be reversed. Just as you can't disinvent the internal combustion engine, so you can't disinvent women's rights. Just as the horse and buggy yielded to the...
