  • NY Passes Bills Banning Conversion Therapy on LGBT Youth, Prohibiting Anti-Trans Discrimination

    National Review ^ | January 15th 2019 | Jack Crowe
    The New York state legislature passed a series of bills Tuesday banning licensed therapists from engaging in conversion therapy and shielding transgender people from discrimination. The Gender Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA), which outlaws discrimination based on gender identity or expression, was first introduced more than a decade ago and has passed the Democrat-held Assembly every year since 2008, but finally received a vote in the Senate after the Democrats reclaimed a majority of the upper chamber in November. “After a protracted 16-year battle, the Democratic majority will finally be able to shield transgender and gender-nonconforming New Yorkers from discrimination and hate,”...

    People cope with disappointment in all kinds of different ways, but what one Eagles fan reportedly did after Sunday’s playoff loss takes things to an entirely different level. According to court records, a 31-year-old Eagles fan became so enraged after Philadelphia’s loss to the Saints on Sunday, that she assaulted her girlfriend and put her dog in a microwave. The incident occurred at a Best Western motel in Hanover Township, Northampton County. As the Daily News reports, “Kirsten Gaskins of Philadelphia was charged with simple assault, harassment, cruelty to animals and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was arraigned by District...

    Parkland school shooting survivor David Hogg ignored a simple question about gun control and background checks on CNN’s “New Day” Tuesday and refused to answer directly. Host Alisyn Camerota asked Hogg if universal background checks would have prevented the February 2018 tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Hogg, however, failed to come up with a clear answer.

    Concerns have surfaced over minors’ access to mobile dating platforms with a popular Chinese gay dating app suspending registration of new users after a report that some underage users contracted HIV on dates set up via the app. Blued, which was launched in 2010 and now boasts 40 million registered users, said on Sunday that it would launch a “comprehensive content audit and regulation”, and crack down on texts, pictures and groups that involved minors, as well as underage users posing as adults. “Blued has always forbidden juveniles from logging on to and using the app,” the company said in...
  • Doctor Who branded ‘homophobic’ for giving gay character 30 secs of screen time before killing him

    VIEWERS have accused Doctor Who bosses of swiftly killing off gay and lesbian characters. They voiced anger online after a security guard was murdered in the New Year’s Day special. It happened just seconds after the guard revealed he had a boyfriend — and followed the slayings of two lesbian characters in October. The guard, played by Connor Calland, was seen challenging a Dalek-controlled character called Lin. Asked who can unlock a fingerprint-operated door, he said: “Today, just me. Most secure digits in Yorkshire. That’s what I tell my boyfriend, anyway.” Seconds later he was exterminated. Doctor Who chiefs Chris...

    Sen.-elect Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said Wednesday that he hasn't decided whether to endorse President Trump in the 2020 election, but ruled out mounting a primary challenge himself. "I haven’t decided who I’m going to endorse in 2020. I’m going to see what the alternatives are," Romney said in an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper. "I think it’s early to make that decision, and I want to see what the alternatives are," he continued. "I pointed out there are places [Trump and I] agree on a whole series of policy fronts, but there are places that I think the president can,...

    CATHOLIC schools will have to teach children about gay, lesbian and transgender relationships – even though it is against their ethos – under plans for the overhaul of sex education. A draft report from the Oireachtas Education Committee, which has been seen by the Irish Independent ,is calling for radical changes in how sex education is taught to children in both primary and secondary schools. Under the new plans, school children would be educated about gay, lesbian and transgender relationships “without distinction as to their heterosexual counterparts”. It also recommends changing legislation to ensure that schools must teach the new...

    This story actually popped up last week but somehow got lost in my inbox for a while. Down in Florida, in the school district where the horrific shooting took place at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the Stoneman Douglas Commission finally sat down to take a vote on one of many measures being considered to provide additional security for students and teachers in the event of future mass shooting attempts. The subject at hand was the concept of arming teachers who volunteer to undergo rigorous training and carry firearms at work.Given the outrage expressed over the idea by many student...

    Homosexual celebrations could be coming to toy aisles nationwide soon if Barbie manufacturer Mattel accepts a proposal to produce sets of same-sex “wedding” dolls. Matt Jacobi and Nick Caprio are a homosexual couple in Arizona that plans to get “married” next May. In comments on Instagram and to ABC 15, they explain that they wanted to get a special birthday present for Jacobi’s 8-year-old niece, who will be a flower girl at their “wedding.” Jacobi is also an E! reality TV personality and contributor to Instinct Magazine. “We thought it would be special to give her something with a little...
  • Cory Booker, setting up possible 2020 run, is again asked about his personal life

    It’s a question he has been asked since entering public life, and U.S. Sen. Cory Booker was again forced to address his personal life as he considers whether to run for president in 2020. “I’m heterosexual,” Booker told the Philadelphia Inquirer. The interview took place as Booker decides whether to jump into the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. He told NJ Advance Media last month that he would “consider running for president" in 2020 and would "take some time during this holiday season to sit with family and close friends and advisers to give it a really good consideration.”...

    The Boy Scouts of America is mulling declaring bankruptcy amid flagging membership and an avalanche of costly sex abuse allegations, according to the Wall Street Journal. Leaders have hired Chicago law firm Sidley Austin for help in a potential Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing, sources told the outlet. The organization has been fending off lawsuits over alleged abuse, including one filed by four former scouts who called the club a “pedophile magnet” and alleged that they were molested by scoutmaster Waldron Ackerman between 1974 and 1976. The organization has reportedly lost two-thirds of its members — some 4 million boys —...

    Last week, anti-gun teen demagogue David Hogg posted a message on Twitter regarding illegal aliens that prompted quite a bit of criticism from a number of other Twitter users. And not just because the word-salad he posted made very little to no sense. “The only people that are illegal in America are those that collude with foreign governments and the only aliens are those who think guns are worth more than children’s lives,” he said.

    This week on The David Rubenstein Show, retired Justice Kennedy finally admitted the real reason behind his Obergefell ruling, the 2015 Supreme Court decision that created a novel definition of marriage to give legal status to same-sex couples. Kennedy said, “It seemed to me just wrong that under the Constitution, over 100,000 adopted children of gay parents could not have their parents married. I just thought this was wrong.” Well, now we know. The justice’s reasoning had nothing to do with Constitutional principles. He had an emotional reaction and in his hubris he imposed his private feelings on the nation....
