Rubin, and Mount Holyoke College’s Angela Willey, who specifically teaches “feminist science.

    Actor Kevin Spacey said that he has "loved and had romantic encounters with men" and that he chooses "now to live as a gay man," after being accused of an unwanted encounter with a 14-year-old. Spacey's remarks came in a tweet posted on Sunday night after "Star Trek: Discovery” star Anthony Rapp alleged that Spacey climbed on top of him in bed when he was just 14 years old. "I have a lot of respect and admiration for Anthony Rapp as an actor. I'm beyond horrified to hear this story," Spacey said. "I honestly do not remember the encounter ......

    A pro-life student group at a Methodist college in Ohio has been denied a spot at the school’s upcoming sexual health fair by the school’s LGBT organization. The pro-life students were informed that their message, which shows the negative effects of abortion, does not promote “sex positivity.”Baldwin Wallace Allies denied a request for Baldwin Wallace Right-to-Life to participate in the event last week. The pro-life group intended to set up a table to talk about the negative physical and mental effects that abortion can have, and to provide students with knowledge of other options available to pregnant women.The group’s president,...

    The questions must be asked when an apparent industry of pedophilia and sexual abuse has been in the open and yet kept secret for decades. Will Democrat politicians like Senator Chuck Shumer – who have long taken campaign contributions from Weinstein – disavow Hollywood’s pedophilia and sexual abuse? Or will Shumer and the Democrats stay quiet, obstruct Congressional investigations of pedophilia in Hollywood, and try to make the public forget that the entertainment business is filled with men that rape children?

    Sir Edward Heath would have been questioned over sex abuse claims if he was alive when they came to light, police have said. Wiltshire Police launched Operation Conifer in 2015 when the former PM was accused of historical child sex abuse. The Conservative politician would have been interviewed under caution over seven claims, including the alleged rape of an 11-year-old, they said. No inference of guilt should be drawn from this, police stressed. The allegations include one of rape of a male under 16, three of indecent assault on a male under 16, four of indecent assault on a male...

    Gay rights groups told a California state commission Wednesday that they object to several of the textbooks that could be recommended for use in schools, saying the books don’t include enough information about the contributions of LGBT Americans. The state Department of Education is preparing to update textbook recommendations for the first time since California became the first state to require teaching about the contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. A coalition of LGBT rights groups said the books should not merely include a token reference to San Francisco civil rights icon Harvey Milk but integrate the contributions...

    An Illinois man will be awarded thousands of dollars after he settled his lawsuit against the Urbana Police Department, which arrested him last year after he posted a photo of himself burning the American flag. After the settlement, he again shared on social media a photo of himself with the flag on fire. Bryton Mellott, Urbana, will receive $15,000, plus an additional $20,000 for legal fees in the settlement, the AP reports. Mellott—who was represented by the American Civil Liberties Union—was arrested on July 4 of last year. He was reportedly detained for five hours, but charges were not filed....

    A previously unreleased police report written 10 years after the most infamous incident in the Jerry Sandusky child-rape scandal at Penn State revealed more evidence that Joe Paterno knew about his assistant coach’s horrific behavior before 2001. The report, which CNN obtained and released Saturday, says when assistant coach Mike McQueary told Paterno he had seen Sandusky with a young boy in the showers at Penn State’s football facility, that the head coach told him it was “the second complaint of this nature he had received.” After the news broke of Sandusky’s behavior and his arrest, Paterno, his family and...

    In 2014, Colorado Civil Rights Commissioner Diann Rice compared Jack Phillips, a Christian baker who was sued for declining to make a cake for a same-sex ceremony, to perpetrators of the Holocaust. She said: I would also like to reiterate what we said in … the last meeting [concerning Jack Phillips]. Freedom of religion and religion has been used to justify all kinds of discrimination throughout history, whether it be slavery, whether it be the Holocaust … I mean, we can list hundreds of situations where freedom of religion has been used to justify discrimination.

    The cosmetic company, L’Oreal, has run into difficulty with their latest “commitment to diversity.” Having hired British, transgender model Munroe Bergdorf, she promptly went on a lengthy Facebook rant about white people that is as idiotic as it is ignorant. The diatribe ignores some very basic realities and buys completely into the fashionable new “race hate” language that is being popularized by the MSM. First off, here’s the text: ‘Honestly I don’t have energy to talk about the racial violence of white people any more. Yes ALL white people. ‘Because most of ya’ll don’t even realise or refuse to acknowledge...

    August 29, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Jesuit Father James Martin, who campaigns for Church acceptance of active homosexuality, "said that he prefers not to make public his own sexuality" in a new interview. Martin is well-known to faithful Catholics for endorsing transgender bathrooms and using his large social media presence to promote the LGBT cause. He is the author of a new pro-gay book that advocates the Catholic Church take a new "pastoral" route to dealing with the "LGBT community." He is also a consultor to the Vatican Secretariat for Communication​. Martin argues employees of Catholic institutions shouldn't be fired for...

University of Texas at Tyler Professor Frank Dykes, along with educator John Delport, explain in a recent article that since “LGBTQ issues are marginalized in teacher preparation programs”—the primary focus of their research—“repressive, heteronormative practices” have flourished.

The New York Post reports that Jared Anderson, who was honoured as Teacher of the Year at Judson High School in Texas just two months prior to his arrest in March 2016, pleaded guilty to four counts of sexual performance by a child and two count of indecency with a child by exposure as part of a plea deal about one month ago, lawyer...

    A boy whose letter to President Trump made national headlines last month reportedly wanted a pro-Trump cake for his birthday party, but his mother was unable to find a baker willing to fulfill the order. At the July 26 White House press briefing, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders read a letter from a boy named Dylan who said Mr. Trump was his favorite president. When she later released the letter publicly, the boy’s last name was blacked out. The only identifying clue was that everyone called him “Pickle.” The media scrambled to verify the letter’s authenticity, and the next day,...

    At least 547 young members of the Regensburger Domspatzen boys choir in Germany were subjected to physical and in some instances sexual abuse over a period of 60 years, a new report says. The report accuses 49 members of the Catholic Church of carrying out the abuse between 1945 and the early 1990s. The alleged perpetrators are unlikely to face criminal charges because of the amount of time that has elapsed. Victims said the experience was like "a prison, hell and a concentration camp". The alleged physical abuse relates to children attending both the Regensburger Domspatzen's pre-school and high school,...

She says they’re not safe because they have penises, and because they have penises they are prone to rape women, and she writes about them this way. And they’ve gotten old enough now that they’re able to find out that she’s writing this way about them, and they don’t like their mother. And she thinks that’s their problem.

    Last weekend, organizers of a gay pride parade in Chicago ejected three people carrying pride flags emblazoned with a Jewish Star of David. Subsequent bizarre statements attempting to rationalize their action, claiming that Zionism is “an inherently white supremacist ideology” only exacerbated the sense that the organizers were deaf to the concerns of the Jewish community and engaged in anti-Semitism — denying Jews the same rights that were extended to other participants, basically to celebrate their identities as Jewish queer women. While this incident could be dismissed as one fringe group in one city, the fact is that it does...
