‘It made me feel indignant and angry’: Ontario Premier recalls discrimination because of her sexuality
These days, those who don’t embrace the full spectrum of gay and transgender life are often silenced
I read a plaintive piece the other day by John Carpay, president of the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, the organization that takes on some of the most unpopular causes around and represents some of the sometimes eccentric individuals who otherwise would be steamrolled by the state.
Carpay was reflecting on how what he calls the “leave-me-alone, respect-my-privacy” libertarianism of the early gay rights movement of the 1960s has morphed into a movement to compel, often through state power, universal approval of homosexuality and, more recently, gender fluidity and the transgender.
It was the perfect cop out for an organization that I believe never really wanted the police in the Pride parade in the first place.
Pride executive director Olivia Nuamah and various friends of Pride, who forever yap about tolerance and inclusiveness, found their Eureka moment.
TORONTO — The organization behind one of the world’s largest pride parades is asking Toronto police to withdraw an application to take part in the event this year.
In recent months, relations between the police and the city’s LGBTQ community have become strained over the handling of the case involving accused serial killer Bruce McArthur.
Sometimes something as mundane as a visit to a drive-through can leave your head splitting from an overdose of culture shock. No matter which way you turn these days, you’re bound to offend someone about something…but did you ever notice that no one seems to care about offending you?
The horrific cliff plunge of eight people off an isolated northern California highway, and now the revelation that it was likely intentional, ought to raise questions about political correctness, given the abusive backdrop.
What we had here was a lesbian couple virtue-signaling with six adopted black children, who used them publicly for political purposes and then abused them back home, before eventually driving them all off a cliff in a Thelma and Louise-style dramatic climax.
According to an exclusive by Entertainment Weekly, Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel “Little Women” will be “reimagined” in a graphic novel in honor of its 150th anniversary. Except this one will have a twist: The title character Jo March will be lesbian.
For those who have been paying attention, the haters on the left and especially the celebs who tell them how to think have been escalating their attacks on Vice President Mike Pence.
About twenty years ago, when Tony Blair was in the midst of “reforming” – ie, wrecking – the House of Lords, I suggested in The Sunday Telegraph that he replace it with the House of Gays, since, as a small, unrepresentative elite exercising power and influence out of all proportion to their actual numbers, gays were now the contemporary equivalent of the old peerage. It wasn’t the greatest jest, but Page Six in The New York Post and a few other papers picked up the quip and reported on it. And, running into me a few weeks later, my National Post colleague David Frum asked if I’d been a bit nervous about its edginess. I giggled, and said that originally I’d written that Mr Blair should replace the House of Peers with the House of Queers, but I’d amended it because these days only G&S fans recognize the formulation “House of Peers”.
A parking lot could end up a paradise for a group of LGBTQ students and allies in Merritt, after city council rejected their proposal for a rainbow crosswalk.
There’s a problem with the commonly seen acronym LGBT. Actually, sometimes it’s LGBTQ, depending who you ask. That problem comes with the “T” in the string of letters. While it may seem like a natural alliance in social justice circles, the fact is that one of these things is not like the others, to borrow a line from Sesame Street. The first three letters stand for Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual. If you tack on the fifth one it stands for Queer. (Though I was assured many years ago that this was an offensive term. But hey… what do I know?)
The official “Emoji list” for 2018 rolled out last week, and it added 157 new pixillated cartoon characters to the vast range of items you can include in your text messages, including kangaroos, softballs, comic book-esque phrases, and your fair reporter’s personal favorite: people who sport ginger hair.
But, obviously, the official emoji people can’t please everyone, and some social justice warriors are particularly angry that there are no new “transgender” or “gender non-binary” emoji people — and that there’s no way to separate emoji couples to create non-hetero-normative combinations, and no “pregnant man.”
On Thursday, February 8, 2018, Jimmy Kimmel performed a four minute sketch on his television show regarding my law firm’s defense of the religious and free speech rights of Cathy Miller, the owner and operator of Tastries Bakery in Bakersfield, California. Cathy Miller is a devout Christian. She believes that God created marriage as a covenant between one man and one woman, and so she believes it is immoral for her to participate in a same-sex wedding.
In yet another bid by the United Nations to sexualize and indoctrinate your children at younger and younger ages, the UN Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization (UNESCO) just unveiled a new set of “Comprehensive Sexuality Education” standards for humanity. Among other controversies, the UN’s planetary sex-ed scheme advocates masturbation, abortion, gender confusion, homosexuality, homosexual parenting, contraception, fornication, and more. The document, which cites abortion giant Planned Parenthood almost 20 times, represents a full-blown assault on parental rights and traditional morality that critics say could devastate a generation of young people. But the UN wants it to be mandatory for every child on the planet, starting at age five.
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) — A California bakery owner can continue to refuse to make wedding cakes for same-sex couples because it violates her Christian beliefs, a judge ruled.
The decision came after a lawyer for Tastries Bakery in Bakersfield argued that owner Cathy Miller’s right to free speech and free expression of religion trumps the argument that she violated a state anti-discrimination law.
Kern County Superior Court Judge David Lampe agreed but said Monday his ruling was tied closely to the fact that Miller was being asked to make a cake for an event and that the act of creating it was protected artistic expression.
OMG! It’s like the Handmaid’s Tale come to life!
