    Donald Trump has already had problems making inroads with female, gay and minority voters. His vice-presidential pick, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, could make things even worse. Pence, the Republican governor of Indiana, has endorsed conservative legislation on abortion, gay rights and immigration both in his home state and while in Congress, where he was consistently ranked as one of the most right-leaning members of the House. He attempted to shut down the government over Planned Parenthood funding, supported a measure that made English the nation's official language and signed one of the nation's strictest abortion laws earlier this year. Pence...

    Scores of students at Russell Sage College rallied Wednesday to protest what they say was discriminatory police treatment of a student who identifies as androgynous. The protest came in the wake of an incident Sunday evening, when a school security officer approached junior Cedar Brock, who was sunbathing topless in a public park that fronts the campus and is across from the Troy Public Library. "Are you a boy or a girl?" the officer asked. "I'm neither," Brock said. "I'm androgynous."

Prosecutors say Cabrera ó without authorization and posing as a plainclothes detective ó was riding along with that girlfriend, Miami Police Officer Sheila Belfort, when the two pulled over a motorist in June 2014.

After the motorist, an undocumented immigrant, was jailed, Cabrera shook down his family for $2,400, promising that the cash would free him from jail and help with ďimmigration concerns.Ē The motorist later complained to Miami policeís internal affairs unit. On Friday, Cabrera, 50, pleaded guilty to impersonating a police officer...

    Illegal immigrant women being detained at a California jail say they are being "humiliated" by strip-searches, particularly in cases involving transgender detainees, and have filed a complaint demanding federal officials put a stop to it. The complaint, sent Monday to the Santa Ana City Jail and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which contracts with the jail to hold illegal immigrants, is the latest step in an escalating push by immigrant rights advocates to try to end the detention of women and children in the country illegally and, in the meantime, to alleviate conditions at the facilities.

    The Clinton campaign has a tin ear for remedying their candidate's woman problem. Lena Dunham is going to campaign for Hillary Clinton. To them, it seems a mutually beneficial arrangement. They both trade in being a woman. Clinton is losing the support of women, and Dunham needs press for her career. They've been partnering for months, actually. Dunham debuted her Lenny Letter email list with a Clinton interview. It was campaign clickbait which included the de rigueur question about feminism--Are you a feminist?--and talk about dresses....

    On Tuesday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the case to determine whether the Constitution requires states to issue same-sex marriage licenses and requires other states to honor same-sex marriages performed in those states. A primary argument by the plaintiffs is that gay marriage is covered under the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment and that if straights can marry, then so can gays. The counterargument is that marriage is a privilege and not a right, a union of one man and one woman sanctioned over millennia by virtually every culture and country over time as the stable...
