    Hold onto your crčches, America! Christmas is officially getting a “gay” makeover on Twitter. The social media site is apparently exploding with support for “gaytivity” scenes after user Cameron Esposito, comedienne and host of Queery Podcast, posted an image of a Nativity scene featuring two Josephs wearing pink and kneeling beside baby Jesus. In a Nov. 24 post, Esposito wrote: “Our neighbors’ two Joseph nativity is up & I’m beaming.”

    My mother never liked me playing with Barbie dolls as a girl. She felt they were too sexualized for a 5-year-old. My grandmother thought she was nuts. Turns out, Mom was right. Not only does Barbie have an Instagram account, Mattel contracts with designers to create special edition clothing for the doll. Recently they contracted with L.A.-based fashion designer and blogger Aimee Song to create a series of looks for Barbie. One design: an embroidered "Love Wins" t-shirt. According to Romper, "The shirts are modeled after Song's own line of T-shirts. The T-shirt comes in two colors, red and white,...

    The West Hollywood apartment of a prominent Democratic donor where a 26-year-old man was found dead of an overdose this summer was littered with drug paraphernalia, according to the man’s autopsy report. The Los Angeles County coroner’s report... says that Gemmel Moore died from an accidental methamphetamine overdose July 27 in the Laurel Avenue home of Ed Buck. The drug was injected into his body. Paramedics found Moore naked on a mattress in the living room with a “male pornography movie playing on the television,” the report states. Coroner's officials ruled Moore's death an accident, and an initial review by...

    It’s why, at Powderhorn’s May Day Cafe, a small sign taped to the counter bears a polite request: “The May Day Cafe asks that you use gender-neutral language when addressing its employees. Thank you.” A similar note, modeled after May Day’s, went up next to the cash register at Taco Cat’s Midtown Global Market stall in September: “Please use gender-neutral language when addressing our staff. Thanks for being a pal.” “I think gendered language is pretty integrated in restaurant culture,” says Taco Cat co-owner Tristan Jimerson. “I’ve been working in restaurants for a long time, and sir-ing and ma’am-ing people,...

    The jury trial for a Casper resident charged with sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl began Monday. Miguel Martinez faces one count of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor and one count of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor. If found guilty, Martinez could face up to 70 years in prison. The girl said Martinez, who is a family friend, invited her into the bathroom, touched her breasts and genitalia before penetrating her. Nurses at the Wyoming Medical Center completed a sexual assault exam and found redness and abrasions on the girl’s genitalia.

    An engineering student who was an LGBTQ activist was shot and killed by Georgia Tech campus police on Saturday night, officials said Sunday. The school identified the victim as Scout Schultz, 21, a fourth-year engineering student from Lilburn, Georgia, who police said was armed with a knife. Schultz, president of Georgia Tech's Pride Alliance, identified as non-binary and intersex and preferred to be referred to with they/them gender pronouns, according to the alliance's website. At a news conference Monday, Schultz's family's attorney said the student was experiencing a "mental breakdown" on the night of the shooting.

    This weekend in Philadelphia, a four-day-long convention of LGBTQ (gay, lesbian, transsexual, bisexual, queer) activists is meeting with leading mainstream journalists and corporate media producers and executives. The stated purpose is to influence mainstream reporting. Issues include same-sex marriage, transgenders in the military, isolating conservative religious groups as hate-mongers, and how to cover President Donald Trump. Incredibly, the journalists are there not to report on the event, but to be enthusiastic participants while their employers help to pay for it. It's one thing for a group like the NLGJA – the Association of LGBTQ Journalists, the sponsor of the event...

    This weekend in Philadelphia, a four-day long convention of LGBTQ (gay, lesbian, transsexual, bisexual, queer) activists is meeting with leading mainstream journalists and corporate media producers and executives. The stated purpose is to influence mainstream reporting on issues close to the heart of the LGBTQ activist community. The issues include same sex marriage, transgenders in the military, isolating conservative religious groups as hate mongers, and even how to cover President Donald Trump. Incredibly, the journalists are there not to report on the event – but to be enthusiastic participants while their employers help to pay for it. It’s one...

    For some years I have been convinced of the need for a Church-wide theological statement on sexuality. In fact, I actually wrote one that never saw the light of day. I was glad, therefore, to be invited to a day-long analysis of the proposed Nashville Statement, which appeared in public a few days later. Though some of us urged the inclusion of biblical references, this statement faithfully reflects the Scriptural teaching on human sexuality. This basic statement of biblical truth is crucial in our day of biblical ignorance. Since many evangelicals now use egalitarianism (no difference between males and females)...

    Grant: Alcohol is 'integral component of bars and clubs'! The National Institutes of Health is spending over $400,000 studying whether gender norms of masculinity and femininity lead LGBTQ individuals to drink too much. Trying to find the "meanings of intoxication" of sexual and gender minorities is the central question of a study that was awarded in late July. The project will "examine the extent to which gendered norms shape risky drinking practices for sexual and gender minority (SGM) young adults," according to the grant for the study. The grant states that alcohol is an "integral component of bars and clubs."...
  • Color Blind or Absent Mind?

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | August 16, 2017 | Malcolm A. Kline
    There is a distinction between color blindness and absent mindedness. The former is a worthy goal consonant with Dr. King's desire that we judge each other "by the content of our character not the color of our skin." The latter is too frequently on display in academia. "As a white assistant professor of mostly white graduate students who will become higher education leaders, I work to dismantle whiteness in my curriculum, assignments and pedagogy," Jodi L. Linley writes. "I make meaning of my own white identity through my commitment to reflexivity as a constant activity." "Equally salient are my identities...

This command has celebrated "LGBT Pride Month" for the past several years.

    In a story about the Women's March on Washington, Time magazine published various "Portraits of Dissent" that included the views of a 17-year-old Calvert County, Maryland, high school senior with the words "Nasty, Queer, Bitch," marked on her cheeks and forehead. She was quoted as saying rights were in danger because of the Trump presidency and that Vice President Mike Pence "is someone that supports electroshocking people like me to turn us into people we aren’t." Pence never said any such thing. But where did this fictional and irrational claim come from? And why did Time publish this lie? A...

    At what point does a graphic novel become pornographic? The English Departments that assign them don’t seem to care. "For example, Ursinus College assigns the widely acclaimed and controversial Fun Home by Alison Bechdel in undergraduate literature courses,” Shannon Watkins, a policy associate at the James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal writes. “Bechdel's graphic novel is written as memoir, and discusses her experiences growing up in a dysfunctional family." "The reader follows Bechdel as she learns about her father’s homosexuality and her lesbianism. Bechdel's graphic novel is written as memoir, and discusses her experiences growing up in a dysfunctional...

    LGBTQ activists in cities across the country are calling for city officials to create "rainbow crosswalks" to "honor the LGBTQ community." "Rainbow crosswalks" are public crosswalks that have been repainted in rainbow colors, which have been adopted by the LGBTQ community as a symbol of greater acceptance and rights for LGBTQ causes and beliefs. Activists are urging local lawmakers to create the crosswalks through the use of petitions. Currently, one of the cities targeted is Chicago. [Snip] Washington, D.C., already installed temporary rainbow crosswalks honoring transgender persons earlier this year, and Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed announced this week the...
