  • California Would Ban Boys' and Girls' Toy, Clothing Sections under New Bill

    03/02/2020 12:27:26 PM PST · by lowbridge · 92 replies ^ | March 2, 2020 | Michael Foust
    A new bill in the California state assembly would ban stores from separating their toys, clothing and childcare items into boys’ and girls’ sections and would fine them $1,000 if they did so. The bill, sponsored by Democratic Assemblymember Evan Low (Silicon Valley), says each “retail department store shall maintain one, undivided area of its sales floor where, if it sells toys, all toys, regardless of whether a particular item has traditionally been marketed for either girls or for boys, shall be displayed.” The bill, AB2826, includes similar language for clothing and “childcare articles” such as pacifiers. It would apply only...

    “Why do you feel like you were assigned the wrong sex at birth?” “Did your gender dysphoria start as a result of something like a trauma?” “Have your parents or friends encouraged you to believe you are trans?” These are just a few questions that a therapist is no longer able to ask children in states that have banned “conversion therapy.” According to the Equality Act, which was passed by the U.S. House of Representatives, “conversion therapy” is a “discredited practice” and “is a form of discrimination that harms LGBTQ people by undermining individuals’ sense of self-worth, increasing suicide ideation...
  • United Methodism Moves toward Separation (Denominational Split becomes more certain)

    United Methodism moved closer to formal schism with a new proposal released today negotiated with liberal and conservative groups, including bishops. The plan would divide the nearly 13 million member global denomination into separate conservative and liberal communions. The mediator for these negotiations was Kenneth Feinberg, the Washington, D.C. attorney best known as Special Master of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund. Under this plan, conferences (Methodism’s version of dioceses or presbyteries) could vote by 2021 to join the conservative denomination by a 57% vote. Local churches by 2024 could vote by majority. The conservative denomination would get $25 million...

    Full title: Finnish Politician, Pastor’s Wife Accused of ‘Incitement of Hatred’ Over Booklet ‘Male and Female He Created Them’ HELSINKI — A lawmaker and pastor’s wife in Finland who was already being probed by police over a social media post in which she questioned the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland’s partnership with a Helsinki Pride event is now also facing a preliminary “incitement” investigation over a booklet that she wrote 15 years ago entitled “Male and Female He Created Them.” The Office of the Prosecutor General of Finland issued a press release on Monday noting that while Päivi Räsänen’s 2004...

    US ambassador to Poland meets pushback for tweeting support of gay ‘pride’ month July 8, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – The United States ambassador to Poland met pushback on Twitter recently for tweeting support for gay “pride” month in commemoration of the 1969 New York City Stonewall riots. “Today is [the] 50th anniversary of the outbreak of riots against discrimination against sexual minorities in the Stonewall Inn Greenwich Village in New York, which gave rise to the LGBTQ movement,” Ambassador Georgette Mosbacher tweeted in Polish on June 28. “These events remind us of the importance of equality, freedom and tolerance.” Her tweet...

    The most jarring fact about New York’s Pride March this year was how perfectly it blended into the surrounding ambience and structures of a hyper-commercialised American megalopolis. There were plenty of freaky sights, to be sure. But from my vantage point – I parked myself at the swanky bar of the Roger Hotel at the corner of Madison and 31st to observe the festivities – the march appeared remarkably… domesticated. This is a painful reality to the most woke among the LGBTQ activists, who detest corporate-friendly “rainbow capitalism”. But I’m afraid the more corporate-friendly side of the movement has the...
  • On Cracker Barrel, Gay Wedding Cakes, and First Amendment Freedoms

    Liberals’ outrage at the failure of the Supreme Court to excoriate Christian bakery owner Jack Phillips last year for declining a request to create a wedding cake for a gay couple was palpable. Equally palpable was their enthusiastic support for Cracker Barrel’s decision earlier this month to refuse service to a man who said LGBTQ people should be put on trial and executed if convicted.That is a problem. Here’s why.If Jack Phillips is in the wrong for refusing to serve certain customers because doing would violate his beliefs, then Cracker Barrel is in the wrong for doing the same thing.If...

    Elton John slammed Russian President Vladimir Putin for being hypocritical on LGBT issues after Kremlin distributors censored Rocketman, a recent biopic about the singer-songwriter's life and career throughout the years. In an interview with the Financial Times, published Thursday, Putin declared that Russia had "no problem with LGBT persons." A day later, John took to social media to call out Putin's comments as hypocritical. In a statement shared to Twitter, the 72-year-old musician condemned the Russian leader for allowing distributors in his country to censor LGBT-scenes in Rocketman. "Dear President Putin, I was deeply upset when I read your recent...

    True to form on the intersectionality front, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), a candidate for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, introduced a bill to extend the idea of reparations to LGBT people. While far more limited in scope than frequent calls for slavery reparations to black Americans, the proposal blames the U.S. government for withholding benefits same-sex couples allegedly should have received before the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage in Obergefell v. Hodges (2015). On Friday, Warren re-introduced S. 1940, the Refund Equality Act, which would allow same-sex couples to amend past tax returns. According to a report from the Joint...

    Other countries are taking steps to atone for their shameful past treatment of L.G.B.T. people. The United States should too. The New York Police Department apologized last week to the gay community for the 1969 raid of the Stonewall Inn, the fallout of which is widely credited with spurring the contemporary gay rights movement at home and abroad. Timed to coincide with Stonewall’s 50th anniversary, the statement by Commissioner James P. O’Neill said in part: “The actions taken by the N.Y.P.D. were wrong — plain and simple” and “the actions and the laws were discriminatory and oppressive, and for that,...

    YouTube is investigating conservative commentator Steven Crowder after Vox host Carlos Maza accused him of harassment and making derogatory comments about his ethnicity and sexuality.

Maza, the host of Vox's media literacy series "Strikethrough," accused Crowder on Twitter this week of "repeated, overt attacks on my sexual orientation and ethnicity." He said that the pundit has called him "an anchor baby" and...

    A retired NFL linebacker is redefining the modern family. Jeff Rohrer, who played for the Dallas Cowboys in the 1980s, lives with his husband, his former wife and their two teenage children, as the unconventional LA-based clan revealed in People magazine Wednesday. After ending their 17-year marriage in 2011 and living apart for two years, Jeff and his ex, Heather Rohrer, decided to put aside their differences and move back in together for the sake of their daughter, Isabella, now 16, and son, Dondillon, 15. Then Jeff, 60, got engaged to a man, 37-year-old celebrity aesthetician Joshua Ross, and...
