    The Daily Caller ^ | 25 Mar 2014 | Brendan Bordelon
    Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

    <p>Topeka resident William Marotta had argued that he had waived his parental rights and didn’t intend to be a father.</p> <p>Shawnee County District Judge Mary Mattivi rejected that claim, saying the parties didn’t involve a licensed physician. “The parties failed to perform to statutory requirement of the Kansas Parentage Act in not enlisting a licensed physician in the artificial insemination process, and the parties’ self-designation of (Marotta) as a sperm donor is insufficient to relieve (Marotta) of parental right and responsibilities to the child,” Mattivi wrote.</p>

    In July of 2012, Janet Napolitano’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) produced a “show and tell” video instructing Americans on the best course of action should they suddenly find themselves in an “active shooter” situation. Entitled Run, Hide, Fight, the Big Sis-approved, 6 minute epic provided potential victims with crucial advice, such as “run away,” and “remain out of sight of the shooter.” Naturally, that’s the sort of counsel only government can provide. (1) Noticeably absent from the DHS tutorial, however, was any discussion of REAL weapons in the hands of prospective victims. Apparently firearms were not permitted in the...

    The Telegraph ^ | 8/10/2012 | Raf Sanchez, Washington
    The US Secretary of Homeland Security ran her department like a female "frat house" where men were routinely bullied and sexually humiliated, according to a lawsuit filed by a former official. Janet Napolitano, who was handpicked by President Barack Obama to defend America's borders, allegedly allowed a female subordinate to terrorise some of the country's most senior security officials while moving less-experienced women to top roles. The lawsuit alleges that Suzanne Barr, Miss Napolitano's chief of staff at Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), would regularly carry out "sexually offensive" behaviour intended to "humiliate and intimidate male employees". On one occasion...

    Now it's come to this: the way Elena Kagan sits. In a lengthy examination of the Supreme Court nominee's seating posture – "hunched with her legs ajar" – the Washington Post fashion writer gives us a tour of Kagan's hip-length jackets, underpinnings, hosiery, shoes and jewelry, the way she "walks with authority and stands up straight," and the way she defies convention with that business with the legs. "In photographs of Kagan sitting and chatting in various Capitol Hill offices, she doesn't appear to ever cross her legs,'' the writer says. "Her posture stands out because for so many women,...

    MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) - A 23-year-old woman is accused of getting friend to kill her Jack Russell terrier and skinning the puppy to make a belt out of its hide. Krystal Lynn Lewis and Austin Michael Mullins, 26, were being held Friday in the Muskogee County jail on $25,000 bail each. They were charged with one felony count of cruelty to animals. "We're talking about a 6- or 7-week-old defenseless puppy," said sheriff's deputy George Roberson. "That's pretty heinous and sadistic." Lewis wanted the puppy, named Poplin, killed because it was a gift from a female ex-lover with whom she...

    The Netherlands will be forced to spend about $170 billion to extend and strengthen its dykes to protect the country from rising sea levels. A committee charged with investigating the future effects of global warming on the Netherlands delivered its findings overnight. It found that the country, nearly two-thirds of which lies below sea level, must spend up to $2 billion per year over the next century on additional safety measures if it is to survive the ravages of rising sea levels. Large-scale work will be needed to extend and strengthen dykes. The report was written by the Delta commission...

    BRATTLEBORO, Vt. - A lesbian couple who entered into the nation's first same-sex civil union are splitting up amid allegations of violent behavior. Carolyn Conrad, 35, asked a court in October to end her relationship with Kathleen Peterson, 46. Conrad also obtained a restraining order Wednesday against her partner, saying Peterson punched a hole in the wall during an argument and threatened to harm a friend. "All I want to say is that the civil union was a big source of pride for me, and now it's not," Peterson said. The two had been together for five years when they...

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Lesbian motorcycle enthusiasts in San Francisco have won their fight to trademark the name "Dykes on Bikes," a lawyer for their group said on Thursday. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office had denied applications by the San Francisco Women's Motorcycle Contingent to trademark "Dykes on Bikes," arguing the phrase would be perceived as disparaging to lesbians. But the National Center for Lesbian Rights and the Brooke Oliver Law Group said the word "dyke" is no longer viewed as derogatory. "Within the lesbian community that term has been reclaimed as a very positive term that denotes strength...

    No one knows for sure how it got there, and for 20 years it has confounded monument specialists in Washington. Spray-painted prominently on the base of the neoclassical bronze-gilded equestrian statue "Valor" on the Arlington Memorial Bridge is a single word: "dykes." The government tried using paint stripper to remove the word, a derogatory term for lesbians. It tried arsenic, but that only made the problem worse and left ugly purple streaks on the statue. Now the government has enlisted the help of an Atlanta-based "object conservator," who will try to remove the offensive word with a laser. The removal...

    A new report recently highlighted in Ruy Teixeira's valuable Public Opinion Watch shows that one of the bright spots for the Democrats in the 2004 election was their performance among single women. The study, done by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner for Womens' Voices/Women Vote, showed that the "marriage gap is a defining dynamic in today's politics, eclipsing the gender gap, with marital status a significant predictor of the vote, independent of the effects of age, race, income, education or gender." As Teixeira writes, the new research shows that unmarried women, who voted overwhelmingly for Kerry, "are social and economic progressives advancing...

Newlyweds seeking to renounce the vows they so recently took have been trickling into probate courts across the state, filling out obsolete forms that still read "husband" and "wife." Josh Friedes, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Freedom to Marry Coalition, said the rapid divorces are no cause for concern. "It would be wonderful if every marriage lasted until a couple lived to a ripe old age, but unfortunately we know from our heterosexual peers that...

After describing her irregular domestic arrangement to school principal Dianne Bert last year, Lee Inkmann was told her daughter would not be allowed to attend O'Hara Catholic School, because the lesbian relationship conflicted with Church doctrine, and could be confusing to other pupils. Inkmann and partner Trish Wilson are suing for $550,000 in damages, naming the school principal, as well as Father Mark Bachmeier, pastor of St. Mary's Catholic Church, in their claim.
