    HipHollywood ^ | 6-18-2014 | Ashley Williams
    Dreamworks How To Train Your Dragon 2 is full of comedy, action and thrills … But one thing that might catch movie goers off guard is the film’s reference to homosexuality. In the fantasy flick, Gobber, the voice of late night host, Craig Ferguson, made a direct comment about his sexuality. “This is why I never married. This and one other reason,” the animated character says. So, during an interview with Ferguson to talk about the sequel, HipHollywood got straight to the point and asked the star about his character’s sexuality. “I think that the implication would be that he...

    Controversy has once again hit the campus of UNC-Wilmington. This time it's not my fault. The controversy is actually the fault of a student. His crime is simple: He decided to behave like a feminist behaves every day on campuses all across America. Unfortunately for him, he chose to do so without the proper genitalia and without the approval of the UNCW Women's Resource Center. I was introduced to the controversy shortly after a student of mine finished taking her final exam of the semester. After she had left my 2 pm exam, she came into my 3:30 class and,...

    TORONTO, March 11, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The thin veneer of Toronto’s annual homosexual parade, ostensibly promoted as "family friendly," has been further chipped away by a mainstream media columnist who insists that “in-your-face sexuality is the point of the damn thing." "Ultimately, there are worse things than seeing a penis flopping down Yonge Street," Canada.com News Editor Lauren Strapagiel wrote in an article attacking the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) trustees who raised questions about the legality of public nudity at the pride parade.

    The most uncomfortable part of my Thanksgiving has, for the last couple of years, been a little trick my father taught me about how to keep the turkey from drying out while cooking. I have to make a slice between the skin and the meat and then stuff tabs of butter under the turkey’s skin. I use an entire stick of butter and place them strategically around the turkey. While it does make for a tender turkey, words don’t do justice to the ickiness of having to work under the skin. This year, however, had an added level of uncomfortableness....

    Reporting from Washington — As the economy endures high unemployment and a jittery stock market, President Obama has preached sacrifice and fiscal discipline. But the pictures coming out of a sun-splashed Spanish resort this week may be sending a different message. First Lady Michelle Obama is in the midst of a five-day trip to a luxury resort along with a few friends, her youngest daughter, aides and Secret Service personnel. Her office said the family will pay for personal expenses, but won't reveal the taxpayer cost for the government employees. (snip) A White House official said that Michelle Obama is...

    Michelle Obama today faced a fresh wave of attacks over her lavish break in Spain with 40 friends, which could easily cost U.S. taxpayers a staggering Ł50,000 a day. The First Lady has been lambasted for her extravagance at a time when the economy is still struggling. One blogger went so far as to brand her a modern-day Marie Antoinette. And her critics will be further annoyed when they learn that the president's wife had a Spanish beach closed off today so that she, her daughter and their entourage could go for a swim. Spanish police cleared off a stretch...

The goal of the “action” –in organizing parlance— is a show of force calculated to intimidate bank lobbyists and show support for sweeping anti-bank legislation pending in Congress. The action, called The Showdown on K Street, is listed at the website of Jobs With Justice. JwJ works closely with ACORN, other community organizing groups, and the labor movement.

Ryan Schuessler and Sean McWay, who are on the editorial staff of the KHS newspaper, The Kirkwood Call, presented a petition with 940 signatures of students and teachers supporting the addition of the words "sexual orientation" to the school district's policy on discrimination. To illustrate the insidious character of harassment, Schuessler offered an anecdote in which he recalled his first encounter with a gay person, while attending...

The Great Schlep is an online campaign urging young U.S. Jews to urge their grandparents in Florida to vote for the Democratic presidential ticket of Barack Obama and Joe Biden in the Nov. 4 election against Republican John McCain and his running mate Sarah Palin. To do so it has enlisted the aid of comedian Sarah Silverman who does a sometimes foul-mouthed plea for Jews to fly to Florida to visit grandma and grandpa and sell the idea...

    In a ruling that surprised some observers, a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the right of a pro-life group to display photos showing the bodies of babies dismembered during abortions. The conservative Thomas More Law Center in Ann Arbor, Mich., had brought suit on behalf of the Center for Bioethical Reform (CBR), a California pro-life group. The case involved police detention for 75 minutes of two CBR pro-life activists who in March circled Rancho Palos Verdes Middle School in Los Angeles, driving a large truck displaying on three sides photos of aborted babies.

    A federal appeals court gave an anti-abortion group the go-ahead Wednesday to drive trucks with enlarged photos of aborted fetuses past California schools, saying the Constitution protects the display of disturbing messages.  Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies interfered with free speech by ordering the driver of one such truck to move away from a middle school, said the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. The deputies had cited a state law barring disruptive activities near public school grounds.  "The government cannot silence messages simply because they cause discomfort, fear or even anger," said a panel of three...

    Muslim leaders in Britain are outraged about a new game that calls for camouflaged players to shoot BBs at "enemy" players dressed in traditional Arab headdresses, or shemaghs. The game's creators, however, say using the shemaghs is the "easiest way to tell who the enemy are," according to a report in the London Daily Mail. "Any sort of game that associates guns and violence with a particular culture is clearly wrong," said Mokhtar Badri, executive member of the Muslim Association of Britain. "They could use any other type of color or dress to tell between teams which would not cause...

The stations - WNDU in South Bend, Indiana and KSL in Salt Lake City, Utah - are affiliated to national network NBC, which made the show. NBC has remade the cult hit British comedy, about six friends, with the first episode to be shown on Thursday. WNDU said the sexual jokes "push the envelope well beyond the boundaries of our community's standards". The station's managers said they were "disappointed and uncomfortable" with the content.

After a conviction, another $1,000 will be donated to the Sierra Club in Eddie's name for the preservation of bald eagles, the attorney said....
