Christie Blatchford: Living in a country where you daren’t be anything but gay friendly

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.


Did PC allow abusive lesbian couple to adopt (and kill) six black children?

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.


The New House of Peers

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”.


The Left’s Continuing Efforts To Conflate Gay Rights With Transgender Issues

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?)


Should The Next Emoji Rollout Include A ‘Pregnant Man?’ Leftists Think So.

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.”


Jimmy Kimmel: A Moron Or Just A Bigot?

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.


UN “Sex Education” Standards Push LGBT Agenda on 5-Year-Olds

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.


Judge: Baker can refuse to make same-sex wedding cakes

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!
