    For the first time, a children's TV network is featuring a "married" gay couple. Cable television network Nickelodeon, which broadcasts programming geared toward children and adolescents, is scheduled to air an episode Wednesday of their new show "Loud House" featuring two men in a same-sex "marriage." In the episode "Overnight Success," main character Lincoln Loud opens his front door to greet his best friend and the friend's parents — an interracial gay "married" couple. Prior to meeting the pair, Loud quips, "This is it. Time to make history." He then addresses the parents as Mr. McBride and Mr. McBride. The...

    Tick, tick, tick…the highly suspicious deal that gave Bill Clinton’s billionaire buddy Jeffrey Epstein a slap on the wrist for paying underage girls for sex may finally be subjected to pubic scrutiny and even overturned, bringing with it the possibility of bargaining against real punishment in exchange for testimony against a bigger fish. This development is thanks to a court filing on the last day of 2015 that received only limited local publicity. More on that in a moment. Shockingly, the deal that handed out token punishment to the statutory rapist has been hidden from the public and from the...

    A Transportation Security Administration agent in Seattle was arrested after allegedly being spotted using a phone to take video up a woman's skirt at the city's airport, according to authorities. Nicholas Fernandez, 29, was arrested on a charge of voyeurism Tuesday, Seattle police said in an arrest report. The incident occurred on an escalator, and not in a security line. "TSA does not tolerate illegal, unethical or immoral conduct," a spokesperson for the TSA said in a statement. "When such conduct is alleged, TSA investigates it thoroughly. When appropriate, TSA requests that it be investigated by a law enforcement authority....

    Bisexuality is booming, with the number of people who bed men and women more than doubling, a study says. Some 7.7 percent revealed they had bi romps in 2014, compared to 3.1 percent in 1990. The stats follow the openness of Brit model Cara Delevingne and other celebrities about their bisexuality. In the same period the percentage of men who reported having had sex with at least one man rose from 4.5 percent to 8.2 percent. And the number of women who said they had bedded at least one female leapt from 3.6 percent to 8.7 percent. Meanwhile, acceptance of...

    BOSTON, July 8, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – The Republican governor of Massachusetts, Charlie Baker, has signed a law that would allow members of one biological sex to use the showers, restrooms, and other private facilities of the opposite sex. The law, which goes into effect on October 1, adds the phrase “gender identity” to state anti-discrimination laws, placing sexual identity on par with immutable characteristics such as race and sex. It would require “any public accommodation...without limitation” to open formerly sex-segregated facilities to members of the opposite biological sex. In June, lawmakers overwhelmingly rejected a measure that would have barred sex...

    In March, a team of Xbox managers held a roundtable lunch with a dozen lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender gamers. During the session, held on the sidelines of the Game Developer Conference in San Francisco, the Xbox team heard why Microsoft’s online gaming platform could be a hostile place for people who aren’t heterosexual, white, and male. Just 12 hours later, Xbox hosted a party during the same conference. To the team’s horror, company organizers had hired women dressed as school girls to dance and socialize with the mostly male crowd—a choice that undercut the company’s outreach to women and...

"Target stock is tumbling after they announced a pro-transgender restroom policy allowing men to use women's bathrooms and changing rooms. Stock value has fallen 20 percent and shareholder value has lost $10 billion since they began promoting this dangerous policy," Graham wrote in a Facebook post on Monday.

    At least 10 percent of BBC employees should be Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transsexual (LGBT), a government policy paper has said. The target is nearly twice that of broadcasting rival Channel 4, which, as a broadcaster tasked with promoting diversity, has a target of 6 percent. Most large employers report that between two and five percent of their workforce are LGBT, a figure thought to be roughly in line with the population at large, although the precise figure is difficult to assess as it relies on self-identification.

    The whole purpose behind the transgender issue is not to push for civil rights, but to destroy the basic ideas behind the traditional gender structure and the institution of family. In its place would be a system based on Marxist theory where everybody is completely equal without the societal assigned pressures of having to behave according to our natural biology. These ideas are Marxist in origin as Karl Marx viewed the nuclear family as a vehicle of class oppression. In a civilized society the most basic institution of self governance is the family structure. Marxists on the other hand, view...

    The Obama administration’s directive last week instructing public schools to allow transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms of the gender they identify with has set off an intense debate. Many politicians and parents have raised alarms about privacy and warned of predatory boys sneaking into girls’ bathrooms. But others say that such accommodations are critical protections for a vulnerable population. For all of the heated debate, a central fact remains elusive: How many students are we talking about? No one knows for sure. Researchers have not figured out how to obtain consistent, reliable answers from teenagers, much less...

    America is an exceptional nation, and there are some things that can only happen in America. An American couple became so gay, that they ended up straight. First, some background. It is often said that, if you become too left-wing, then you are going to end up as a right-winger. The best example is Caucescu of Romania. Romania was a nation that allowed tax-payer funded abortion in 1945, without restrictions. This made the economy and military power of the country weak. Caucescu later criminalized abortion and contraception in the 1960s, and this improved the economy, so far as communist standards...

    Gov. Pat McCrory of North Carolina on Monday escalated the nation’s clash over transgender rights by suing the Justice Department, which said last week that the state had violated the Civil Rights Act of 1964 when it passed a law prohibiting people from using public restrooms that do not correspond with the gender listed on their birth certificates. In the suit, the governor accused the Justice Department of a “radical reinterpretation” of the law. “The department contends that North Carolina’s common sense privacy policy constitutes a pattern or practice of discriminating against transgender employees in the terms and conditions of...

    North Carolina governor Pat McCrory filed a lawsuit Monday against the United States Justice Department, asking a federal court to rule that its so-called “bathroom law” is not discriminatory. In his complaint, McCrory (R) accused the federal government of “baseless and blatant overreach.” “The Obama administration is bypassing Congress by attempting to rewrite the law and set restroom policies for public and private employers across the country, not just North Carolina,” McCrory said in a related statement. “This is now a national issue that applies to every state and it needs to be resolved at the federal level.”

North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory has defended the law as “very common-sense,” but the LGBTQ community claims the law is discriminatory. This week, Justice Department lawyer Vanita Gupta sent a letter to Governor McCrory, indicating that he...
