    The sequel to Disney’s “Frozen” won’t be out for a few years, but some fans have already launched a social media campaign calling on Disney to make the main character, Elsa, a lesbian. The campaign #GiveElsaAGirlfriend began when a teen named Alexis Isabel tweeted: “I hope Disney makes Elsa a lesbian princess imagine how iconic that would be.” Then she tweeted: “Dear @Disney, #GiveElsaAGirlfriend.” […] Elsa’s song, “Let It Go” in the original movie became a popular and catchy tune for young viewers, but according an April 10, 2014 blog in The Guardian, it’s also an anthem for the LGBT...

    The American media’s heir apparent to the presidency, Princess Hillary Clinton, has had a hissy fit because that cad Donald Trump slipped a pea under her mattress. She’s all a flutter because he used a sexually oriented word that 99% of Americans have never heard of. Princess Hillary seems to believe that women should be protected from such language like they were in the 1950′s. Or,maybe she’s been so protected she doesn’t know some women use more well known words with a similar meaning. I’ve even heard teenage girls use such terms in church.

Her article, titled "What's a Feminist Mom to Do With a Disney Princess-Loving Daughter?" reads, "When I was pregnant, my prevailing philosophy was that gender was a construct created by social convention, and I was convinced my child would transcend the imposed definitions of femininity or masculinity." Ms. Nagy further "limited her screen time and tried to introduce a variety of stimuli...

    Two men died and eight others were hospitalized after a toxic gas build-up on board the luxury ship featured in hit TV show The Love Boat. The decommissioned vessel, named Pacific Princess, was heading in to dock on the coast of Turkey for the last time on Saturday following news it is to be scrapped. It began taking on water as it neared the shore, and several crew members entered the engine room to pump it out. Reports suggest a deadly build-up of exhaust fumes poisoned ten workers, killing two of them. The other men were treated in hospital for...

She was Prince Shahriar's kid sister but as he and I were best friends at the time back in Iran, she was also mine by association and I always thought of her as such.

    A Muslim cleric, once decorated by Buckingham Palace, is facing jail after being convicted of 'preying on' and 'abusing' two boys at his mosque. Mohammed Hanif Khan, 42, one of Britain's most influential imams, became the first ever full-time Islamic minister in the history of the British prison service in 2001. Highly respected, in 2004 he visited the Palace to receive a Butlers' Trust Award from Princess Anne for his work in diversity. Under his grand title of Sheik Mohammed Hanif Haqqani Kareemi he led prayers and gave Islamic education to boys.

    Cheryl Kilodavis was stunned when her young son first insisted on wearing a dress. Now she has published a book about him, in a bid to teach critics to accept his differences. For most young boys, dressing up as Spiderman and Buzz Lightyear would be the stuff of fancy dress fantasy. But not so for five-year-old Dyson Kilodavis, from Seattle, who insists on wearing dresses worthy of a Disney princess. Naturally, his parents, Cheryl and Dean Kilodavis, were concerned that this could make him an easy target for bullies, and when the tendency first emerged, his mother tried to deter...

NBC’s “Today’s Family” segment featured Kilodavis and her son Dyson in an eight-minute story and interview. Dyson likes to wear girls’ clothes and do girl things. Mom likes to make money off her son’s proclivities. And “Today” wants to educate viewers about “tolerating” little boys who wear dresses. The a perfectly unbalanced segment full of...

    Princess Diana died after attempts to frighten her into dumping Dodi al Fayed and ending her anti-establishment activities went horribly wrong, a leading lawyer has claimed. Michael Mansfield claimed he was sure Diana's 'killers' had no intention of ending her life in a Paris tunnel in August 1997 and simply wanted to scare her. But he claimed the operation to torpedo her relationship with Dodi, and silence her planned criticism of the British government over foreign arms sales, backfired spectacularly.

    WALT Disney's first black princess is steeped in controversy, with the studio changing her name and job, but still facing claims of racial insensitivity. Following claims of racial insensitivity, the studio -- known for its wholesome and predominantly white family values -- has made several changes to its first African-American princess, Tiana. Voiced by Anika Noni Rose, Tiana is the star of a new animated film to be released this Christmas, titled The Princess and the Frog. Tiana's mother will be played by talk-show host Oprah Winfrey. Disney has changed the profession of the princess to an aspiring restaurant entrepreneur,...

At a coroner's inquest into Diana's death, Paul Burrell testified that Diana's mother, the late Frances Shand-Kydd, had destroyed much of Diana's private papers.

    Calls were spreading on Monday for Princess Martha Louise to give up her royal title, to eliminate what's considered an inappropriate mix of her privileged position with her new controversial psychic venture. Even relatively conservative newspapers are criticizing the princess for "earning money on her princess title," as Bergens Tidende wrote in an editorial in Monday's editions. The newspaper, Norway's largest outside the Oslo area, also noted that "as a princess and theoretically an heir to the throne," Martha Louise "needs to relate to the rest of us others within a certain framework." The editorial questioned whether the princess' new...

The main character, named Maddy -- who was to become Disney's first black princess -- has had her name changed to Tiana, since Maddy reportedly...

    Two of our gutsy members stood the line against the moonbataloonies today at the corner of Massachusetts Ave and Observatory Circle.We were running very very late, and after a few wrong turns and a missed pickup at Catholic University, we parked and got our signs out.My "Thank God for George Bush" sign brought a few hoorahs, and attaboys from some youngsters walking on the other side of the street, but that was short-lived.When we arrived at the corner, I announced that "Protest Warrior is in the house" and called out Princess, who was hiding behind a tree with his desecrated...

    'Warrior princess' to White House? By Jonathan Beale BBC News, Washington It has been an amazing transformation. In the first Bush administration, Condoleezza Rice was known as the "warrior princess". From "warrior princess" to smiling face of US diplomacy As national security adviser, she was seen as a leading hawk and architect of the Iraq war. But Ms Rice has now become the smiling face of American diplomacy. She is the stylish pin-up of the Republican Party and the poster child of African-American success. Opinion polls suggest a majority of Americans think that she is doing a good job as...

    Finally, we have a solution to the threat of Islamic Jihad. Just shy of a year after the Jihadist murder of Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh and only weeks past the four-year anniversary of 9/11, that fateful day when the world discovered such a war even existed, Holland’s Princess Irene, sister to Queen Beatrix, offers up a strategy for world peace: “Let’s talk.”

    CAMILLA Parker Bowles will be given the title Princess of Wales when she marries Prince Charles on Friday, the government will announce tomorrow. The title will be confirmed in a parliamentary statement in response to a question from Andrew Mackinlay, a Labour MP. It is likely to anger supporters of the late Diana, Princess of Wales. The disclosure, four days before the wedding, is potentially more embarrassing for Parker Bowles than the earlier admission that she will one day become queen. The title remains closely linked in the public mind to Diana, especially among those who blame Parker Bowles for...

    No Name Calling Week?     1/12/2005By Warren Throckmorton, Ph.D.Yes, name-calling is wrong. But this event’s sponsors reveal the agenda behind banning it. “There is a special place in hell for people like you!” These words were directed at me by a teacher during this past summer’s National Education Association (NEA) convention in Washington, D.C. This delegate to the NEA convention made his prediction in response to my presence at the NEA’s Ex-Gay Educators’ Caucus booth in the convention exhibit hall. His cheery salutation caught me off-guard given the message of tolerance and acceptance I had been hearing around the exhibit hall....

    TOKYO -- Princess Sayako's engagement to a Tokyo city bureaucrat, a commoner, became official Thursday with an announcement by Japan's Imperial Household Agency. Japan had eagerly awaited word of the engagement between Sayako, 35, the only daughter of Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko, and Yoshiki Kuroda, 39. "Mr. Yoshiki Kuroda is a fine and appropriate person," Toshio Yuasa, grand steward of the Imperial Household, told reporters at the palace, a closely guarded area in Tokyo, surrounded by a swan-gliding moat. The wedding will probably occur in the latter half of next year, Yuasa said. The announcement was postponed after the...

    Pretend princess An toinette Millard is showing some real gall: She's suing American Express for $2 million for allowing her to go on a nearly $1 million shopping spree she couldn't afford at some of the city's priciest stores. Millard's filing says she "was suffering from anorexia, depression, panic attacks, [and] head tumors," and the credit-card giant "knew or should have known that [she] was acting impulsively and irrationally." That argument hasn't moved American Express, which got a court order this week to freeze her assets.
