  • No, Trump Didn't 'Erase' LGBTQ People From the US Census

    If you were to read some of the more hysterical headlines being churned out by certain elements of the gay press -- which are, in turn, being shared far and wide by and among the Left's outrage industry -- you might be forgiven for concluding that President Trump has just ordered an act of statistical genocide against the LGBTQ community. "We've been erased!" blares the title of a post on the National LGBTQ Task Force's website, while other outlets have prominently featured Trump in their ledes. [Snip] The Census has never included these questions before, and experts on the process...
  • Palomo Spain: "The Most Amazing, Beautiful, Decadent, Evil Thing" at the New York Men's Shows

    Twenty-four hours before Alejandro Gómez Palomo's Palomo Spain show, Nicola Formichetti—arguably one of the industry's most clued-in, youth culture–glancing arbiters—told me, "You can't miss it." Then, five minutes before the runway lights dimmed, the expectations compounded. Bryan Grey Yambao, my seatmate, leaned over and said, "This is so fashion," referring to the crowd, which included singer Troye Sivan (wearing Palomo Spain's pink velvet trousers), photographer Ryan McGinley, and model Hari Nef. (A "fashion" crowd isn't usually the case at a New York menswear show.) And as the first look walked out, a man to my right said out loud...

    The British Medical Association has said pregnant women should not be called "expectant mothers" as it could offend transgender people. Instead, they should call them "pregnant people" so as not to upset intersex and transgender men, the union has said.

    In the weeks approaching the Women's March on Washington, a woman in Los Angeles accidentally created what became the most popular accessory among protesters: a pussy hat. "I wanted to do something more than just show up," Krista Suh told the Los Angeles Times. "How can I visually show someone what's going on? And I realized as a California girl, I would be really cold in D.C. - it's not tank-top weather year-round. So I thought maybe I could knit myself a hat." Suh made the knitting pattern freely available online, and soon women across the country were working quickly...

    The NCAA has now joined the NBA and other organizations pulling its official events out of the state of North Carolina due to concern over the state's House Bill 2. Emphasizing an "inclusive atmosphere for all college athletes, coaches, administrators and fans," the NCAA announced it would be pulling seven championships from the state, including a site for the 2017 NCAA Tournament. "Fairness is about more than the opportunity to participate in college sports, or even compete for championships," said Mark Emmert, NCAA president said in a statement. "We believe in providing a safe and respectful environment at our events...

    The NCAA on Friday said cities looking to host future championship games must submit details by Aug. 12 about how they will protect participants from discrimination, a move that could hurt North Carolina's chances of landing future games. The announcement came one day after the NBA said it was moving the 2017 All-Star Weekend from Charlotte over a controversial North Carolina law known as House Bill 2. Cities that have already been awarded games will face a separate questionnaire deadline, which will be determined later, the NCAA said. [Snip] Cities bidding for games now must complete a questionnaire from the...

    Yahoo News ^ | June 28, 2016 | Andrew M. Seaman
    Gay, lesbian and bisexual individuals reported more health problems than straight men and women, in a large U.S. survey. For the first time since its launch in 1957, the National Health Interview Survey in 2013 and 2014 included a question about sexual orientation. With nearly 69,000 participants, the survey revealed that lesbian, gay and bisexual adults "were more likely to report impaired physical and mental health, heavy alcohol consumption, and heavy cigarette use, potentially due to the stressors that (they) experience as a result of interpersonal and structural discrimination," researchers wrote online June 28 in JAMA Internal Medicine.

    The taxpayer funded University of Arizona will become the first university in America to offer a transgender studies program. The program is set to launch by fall of 2017, and will grant master’s degrees. The school's program will focus on sex, gender, cultural issues, political issues, and the life experiences of transgender people. This new program will be the result of the university’s Transgender Studies Initiative, introduced in 2013. The school has also hired three new professors to teach in the program, and plans to hire a fourth. "The three people who had been hired were all white, and we...

    Barack Obama used his annual Father's Day proclamation to praise transgender “dads,” saying that all “men,” regardless of “gender identity,” play an important role in teaching children “the values that matter most.” “Dads play vital roles in our lives,” the annual proclamation, released last Friday, began. “From single fathers who struggle to make ends meet to surrogates who step up to be there for America's daughters and sons, these men help shoulder the greatest obligation that exists – raising the next generation,” Obama wrote. “Regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status; whether biological, foster, or adoptive; fathers teach...

    Do the rights of boys who identify as girls trump the rights of girls who are born girls? That question is at the heart of a lawsuit filed by dozens of Illinois parents after the Obama administration’s Department of Education strong-armed their school district into allowing a transgender student the right to use all girls’ locker rooms. “The girls are mortified,” said Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Jeremy Tedesco, a religious liberty law firm representing some 50 families. “They are in a constant state of fear that their bodies are going to be exposed to a male in these settings. It’s...

    Caitlyn Jenner has taken Donald Trump up on his offer to use the restroom of her choosing while visiting one of his Trump Towers - and recorded the landmark moment for posterity. "A trans woman in New York, I gotta take a pee," Jenner says in a Facebook video filmed outside the Trump International Hotel and Tower near Central Park. "Last week Donald Trump said I could take a pee anywhere in a Trump facility," she continues. "I am gonna go take a pee in the ladies' room." After returning from her brief bathroom trip, Jenner thanks Trump for the...

    While the NCAA continues to monitor the situation, major corporations took stands Thursday against a new North Carolina law that bans anti-discrimination measures based on sexual orientation and gender identity and requires transgender people to use public bathrooms that match their birth certificates. American Airlines, which operates its second-largest hub in Charlotte, joined biotech company Biogen and payments processor PayPal as corporations condemning the new law. [Snip] The NCAA, which is scheduled to hold men's basketball tournament games in Greensboro in 2017 and Charlotte in 2018, issued a statement saying it's monitoring the situation and takes diversity into account when...

    Mom Beth McGarrity has revealed how her son and daughter both told her they wanted to swap gender, within weeks of each other. The Sun reports that Beth and her husband Russ - who moved to Cincinnati when kids Russie and Aly were tiny - noticed their children were different from a young age.

    A wedding is not just two people exchanging rings; it is an entanglement of their personal, legal, and business affairs. For better or for worse, marriage affects a broad and substantial list of rights involving inheritance, property, child custody, and more. Now that gay marriage is legal in all fifty states, both the people involved in gay relationships and the legislators drafting the laws that govern all these rights need to carefully analyze the issues presented. As it turns out, those who cheered the decision [legalizing homosexual marriage] may have their own reasons to worry. The Law of Unintended Consequences...
