    In a few short weeks, President Barack Obama’s tenure in the White House will officially come to an end and Donald Trump will begin his terrifying reign as the leader of the free world. For many, this is a very scary reality, one that I’m still grappling to come to terms with myself. Nevertheless, as we prepare for Obama’s exit, let’s remember what his administration as president has done for the American people. 1. Health insurance for millions One of Obama’s primary goals as president was to tackle the country’s broken healthcare system. Although we still have a long way...

    Last week, administrators at the University of Oregon made it clear to professors that they would be disciplined if they offended students on the subjects of race, gender, sexuality, or religion. This is a concerning new development considering that this new warning from administrators suggests that professors can be disciplined based upon what students subjectively choose to find offensive. Discipline for remarks made by professors is not limited to bigoted remarks or deliberate racism, but rather any incident that a student may find offensive. [Snip] According to Eugene Volokh of The Washington Post, the following acts of expression could be...

    CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) -- John Schenck, the co-founder of the Gay Pride Parade of Conway, has died. Schenck's husband and partner of nearly 41 years, Robert Loyd, died, from a heart attack last December. Schenck and Loyd moved to Arkansas in 1978 to care for Loyd's mother, who lived in Damascus. Loyd, who worked as a hairdresser in West Palm Beach, Florida, and Schneck eventually opened a salon on the outside of town. They named the gas station-turned-salon The Lion's Den. It proved so successful, they expanded to Greers Ferry and Heber Springs. In 1986, Schenck and Loyd moved to...

    The pins read “My pronouns are” followed by either “he, him, his,” “she, her, hers” or “they, them, theirs.” A sign at the library declares that mis-gendering a person can have dangerous consequences and can “invalidate someone’s identity.” “Because gender is, itself, fluid and up to the individual,” the sign reads. “Each person has the right to identify their own pronouns, and we encourage you to ask before assuming someone’s gender.

South St. Paul police closed the investigation into teacher Aric Babbitt and his husband, Matthew Deyo, and released the documents this week.

    SECAUCUS, N.J. -- The family of an eight-year-old boy in New Jersey says he was kicked out of Cub Scouts because he is transgender. Joe Maldonado was born a female. His mom signed him up for Cub Scouts and said she was very clear about his transgender status. But after about a month, she got a call from the Scouts' head counsel, saying he could no longer be part of the organization. "I felt bad for my son he was having a good time," his mom Kristie Maldonado said. "They had a barbecue, the last day they had a Halloween...

    More than twice as many minors as expected have expressed a desire to change their gender this year. Since January, the Sexology Clinic in Copenhagen has offered hormone treatment to minors who feel like they were born in the wrong body. […] In Denmark, children as young as 12 can receive hormone suppressors, also known as puberty blockers, to stunt the growth of sexual organs and suppress developments like facial hair for boys and menstruation for girls. The effects of the blockers are reversible. Once minors reach the age of 16, they can receive full hormone treatment that is largely...

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” former Representative Barney Frank (D-MA) quipped that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia “was actually the leading advocate of fag-burning, not flag burning,” which caused confusion for President-Elect Donald Trump. Frank, after noting that Justice Antonin Scalia opposed bans on flag-burning, said Trump “cited Scalia as his favorite judge. I think there was a pronunciation problem there. Scalia was actually the leading advocate of fag-burning, not flag-burning, and I think that’s where he got himself a little confused.”

This was a matter of personal importance to Tillerson, an Eagle Scout and recent president of the BSA from 2010 to 2012. As reported in The Dallas Morning News, according to a close confidant, Tillerson’s opinion on the matter came as a result of personal prayer and reflection. “He agonized over this,” the confidant said. “He prayed on it, and ultimately he came to the conclusion the only thing that can guide him...

    When Susan Allen was elected to the Minnesota House of Representatives in 2012, she became the first openly lesbian Native American woman to win office in any state legislature. But framing that achievement as one for the lesbian community alone obscures another aspect of Allen’s identity, and one that is directly connected to her Native American ancestry: Allen also identifies as “two-spirit.” While Americans are increasingly familiar with the elements that make-up our modern LGBTQ abbreviation, other, often older queer identities like two-spirit remain unappreciated to the point of erasure. But if Allen and other two-spirit folks have their way,...

    It’s all the rage now: Dump on multiculturalism and identity. But identities are vitally important in motivating voters. And besides, white people have them, too. Since Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election, the victors and the vanquished have disparaged identity politics—coded language for multiculturalism. Most notably, in a New York Times op-ed, Mark Lilla argued, in part, that Democrats are so enmeshed in linguistic minutiae they can’t develop effective messaging. Predictably, Democrats are apoplectically tripping over one another to distance themselves from the term, a core tenet of the party. (Hearing Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio use Obama’s word “shellacked”...

The North Carolina General Assembly was called into a special session about nine months after they passed the law, which tarnished the state's national image as major corporations decided to pull up stakes, entertainers canceled concerts and the NCAA and ACC moved sporting events away. The wide-ranging law's best-known provision required transgender people to use restrooms in many public buildings corresponding to...

    Michelle Obama says she can “feel the difference” since the election. She claims that with her husband leaving the White House the nation is entering a “period of hopelessness.” With the election of Donald Trump, the Left in general is reacting in unhinged ways, with one news outlet claiming, “The Left has lost its collective mind.” Ironically, the Left is attacking Trump for the actions that they indulged in to the extreme over the past 8 years. They are doing a lot of “projection” –– a term psychologists use to describe the practice of attributing to others your own flaws....

An email obtained by the Mercury, sent by concerned Catholics to the Vatican, said the Archbishop’s comments were harmful and had left some students upset and parents...

    Quivering with quiet rage, Shirin holds a photo of his teenage brother-in-law, who now lives as the plaything of policemen, just one victim of a hidden epidemic of kidnappings of young boys for institutionalised sexual slavery in Afghanistan. Shirin is among 13 families AFP traced and interviewed across three Afghan provinces who said their children were taken for the pervasive practice of "bacha bazi", or paedophilic exploitation, in Western-backed security forces. Their testimonies shine a rare spotlight on the anguished, solitary struggles to free sons, nephews and cousins from a tradition of culturally-sanctioned enslavement and rape. Shirin recalled how his...

    A gay Christmas decoration showing a nativity scene with two Josephs has been slammed by outraged Christians. The colourful hanging tree ornaments – on sale for £13 - also have a lesbian version with two Virgin Marys sitting beside a baby Jesus Christ, who is lying in a manger.

Chief executive Andrea Williams said: 'These decorations are a desperate and ridiculous attempt to pretend that homosexual relationships are pure and holy. 'They blasphemously portray the Lord Jesus being parented...
