    Mara Keisling, executive director of National Center for Transgender Equality, told C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal” on Monday that North Carolina’s transgender bathroom law is “a ginned up problem” and that the transgender community is “being bullied.” “It is a ginned up problem that really has trans people baffled and concerned, because we didn’t do anything. We didn’t do anything to anybody, and now we’re being bullied,” said Keisling.

    Gov. Nathan Deal said he will veto the “religious liberty” bill that triggered a wave of criticism from gay rights groups and business leaders and presented him with one of the most consequential challenges he’s faced since his election to Georgia’s top office. The measure “doesn’t reflect the character of our state or the character of its people,” the governor said Monday in prepared remarks. He said state legislators should leave freedom of religion and freedom of speech to the U.S. Constitution.

    Attorney General Loretta Lynch urged Muslim parents to contact both the justice department and the education department if they think their children are being "bullied" in school. "We've seen this for a number of years, we saw it a lot in the New York area [after 9/11], unfortunately, where there would be a backlash against the Muslim community in general," she claimed at a Thursday fundraiser dinner for an Islamic advocacy group, Muslim Advocates. In response to Lynch's address, conservative host Rush Limbaugh said on his radio show Friday: Don't bother with the principal! You know, education's a local thing....

    A woman who had a baby on welfare describes her social worker’s attitude when she became pregnant a second time: “After having our baby in May, a caseworker at the Department of Social Services made us feel like we’d been irresponsible for having a second child. She lectured Jim [her husband], telling him, “You can’t keep your wife barefoot and pregnant the rest of your life. You’d better do something about it.” She wanted to stop us having children and insisted on making an appointment for us to go to Planned Parenthood for counseling and birth-control supplies – conveniently located...

    Marie Ideson was just over 16 weeks pregnant with a Down Syndrome child. “I was bullied into going ahead with an abortion,” says Ideson, 46, a GP surgery manager. “I only wish I could turn back the clock. I think of the daughter I never had every day. I’ll always regret it.” Ideson had an amniocentesis to determine if the baby she was carrying was disabled. She was told it was a routine part of pre-natal care. Four days later, she received a call from the hospital: “A woman said, ‘I’m sorry to say your baby has Down.’ It was...

    George Zimmerman was back in court today for a hearing on the start date for his trial on murder charges. Zimmerman, of course, was the Hispanic neighborhood watchman in Sanford, Florida, who trailed a young black man named Trayvon Martin after calling 911, got into an altercation with Martin in which Martin ended up pounding Zimmerman’s head into the pavement, and then ended up shooting Martin in the chest. The media used the Zimmerman case as an opportunity to bully Americans over their supposed racial intolerance. Even the President of the United States weighed in in the midst of an...

    Tens of millions of dollars flowing into Wisconsin on behalf of the union hacks pushing recalls is only part of the assault on the will of the voters. There is also now a campaign of bully tactics underway and tea party organizers are being forced to quickly move rally locations. The Tea Party Express is hosting a plethora of tea party rallies across Wisconsin in an effort to push back against the unions driving the recalls. While on the road to Kenosha, WI, we learned the venue was no longer willing to host the Tea Party rally due to threats...

    Department of Interior officials seem to take sadistic pleasure in badgering oil companies. The latest example involves a new agency created to levy untold millions of dollars in fines if companies don’t kowtow to the new bureaucracy. The agency’s head gave the tasteless warning: “If they cut corners they could end up paying enough to quickly take care of the federal deficit.” The oil industry now pays $37 million a day in royalties. That’s over $13 billion a year for our near empty U.S. Treasury and other state and special accounts. The comment about collecting royalties enough to pay off...

    Now two families — including the Vidovics — are suing the school district, claiming their children were bullied to death and the school did nothing to stop it. The lawsuits come after a national spate of high-profile suicides by gay teens and others, and during a time of national soul-searching about what can be done to stop it. If there has been soul-searching among the bullies in Mentor — a pleasant beachfront community that was voted one of the "100 Best Places to Live" by CNN and Money magazine this year — Sladjana's family saw too little of it at...

    It started with rumors, a love triangle, and a dirty look in a high-school bathroom. Soon jokes about an "Irish slut" cropped up on Facebook, and a girl’s face was scribbled out of a class photo hanging up at school. One day, in the cafeteria, another girl marched in, pointed at her, and shouted "stay away from other people’s men." A week later, as the girl walked home, a car full of students crept close. One kid hurled a crumpled soda can out the window, followed closely by shrieks of "whore!" If your children had behaved like this, how would...

    BARABOO, Wis. - The teen accused of gunning down the Weston school principal last September told his grandmother afterward that "something snapped" in his head, she testified. Irene Hainstock took the stand Tuesday at a hearing on whether Eric Hainstock, who turned 16 last week, should be prosecuted in juvenile court instead of adult court, where he is charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the death of Principal John Klang. The charge carries a mandatory life prison term. If prosecuted as a juvenile, he could be incarcerated only until the age of 25, his lawyers have said. According to prosecutors,...

    Aug. 12, 2005 — A federal jury has ordered a Kansas school district to pay $250,000 to a former student tormented by school bullies. "That's five years of my life that I had to live — just depressed, angry, scared," said the boy, Dylan Theno, 18, of Tonganoxie, Kan. "I can never get that back." Theno won the award Thursday after his family sued the Tonganoxie School District, claiming Theno had suffered years of bullying, and that school officials didn't attempt to stop the harassment.

    One glance at 15-year-old Matthew Ridley of Wiltshire, England, and you might think he'd be likely to intimidate fellow classmates. Ironically, the 6-foot-7-inch, 250-pound rugby player has had to withdraw from classes at the Kingsdown Secondary School due to incessant bullying from others. Ridley is now going public with his saga, saying the verbal and physical abuse went on for three years. "Older lads used to come up and push me and try to start fights with me," Ridley told the Press Association of Britain. "They used to do it to make out like they were hard and bigger and...
