The Progressive Left Continues to Normalize Political Violence

Nearly one in five college students says that violence is acceptable in order to prevent opinions they don’t agree with from being expressed. You can say, “Well, come on, 81% don’t agree,” but the actual number of people who agree that violence is an acceptable alternative to free speech should be 0%. By the way, the other day Nancy Pelosi got shouted down by a mob of illegal immigrants and their supporters; and one dingbat Democrat senator blames the Russians.

Gay Relationships: The Controlling Partner

( Gay Relationships Advice Column By Dr. Brian Rzepczynski ) Dear Dr. Brian:   My partner and I have been together for 9 years and we have a problem with control in our relationship. My partner says that I’m too controlling and it’s gotten to the point where I feel like I have to watch everything I say for fear that he’ll think I’m trying to overpower him. He says that I try to control how he thinks and feels in most situations of his life. I’ve asked him to write down the areas of his life where he feels I’m controlling him, but he resists this. I’m not sure what to do and I’m getting to the point where I’m questioning whether this relationship is viable. Any advice...

Studio Responsibility Index | End of Summer Update: LGBTQ people are practically invisible at the box office

Courtesy of LionsgateLGBTQ people are still nearly invisible in the films released by the seven major studios over this summer.

A handful of other films came close to including a character or set up the opening for an out character to be featured in future installments, but overall, the picture looks grim. The LA Times reports this summer to be the worst attended summer movie season in 25 years. Studios who are hoping to get audiences in to the theater should take a lesson from their competitors on the TV side - viewers are flocking to series which are inclusive of the...
