Christian pundit says that Trump is “just too much of a man” for LGBTQ people
Failed Republican politician and minister E.W. Jackson has finally figured out why the left doesn’t like Donald Trump: he’s “just too much of a man for them.”
He said that Trump’s manliness is too much for the “the radical feminists, the homosexuals, the trangsenders, whatever bizarre idea they have of who we’re supposed to be” on the left.
“They’re not putting up with men who stand tall, who stand up straight and say, ‘Look, this is who I am, this is what I believe, you can like it, or you can lump it, but there it is,'” he said.
Jackson went on to compare Trump to former President Barack Obama to prove his point.
“Obama was effete,” Jackson said. “Obama was light in the loafers,” he added, using a common expression for gay men.
Cory Booker said he will "fight to protect" black transgender women, and this is so important
Last night, June 26th, 10 Democratic presidential candidates kicked off the 2020 race for the party’s nomination. The gathered politicians answered questions on topics ranging from reproductive rights to immigration reform. And Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey took a stand for LGBTQ Americans, including black transgender women.
According to a transcript of the debate from NBC News, Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard broached the subject of LGBTQ rights by discussing the Equality Act, which would prohibit discrimination based on gender identity or sexual orientation. But Booker argued that supporting this bill wasn’t enough. The New Jersey senator pointed out that LGBTQ people—especially black transgender people—are too often the victims of violence.
Ecuador's highest court legalizes same-sex marriage
Ecuador's highest court has ruled to recognize same-sex marriage, marking a watershed moment for LGBTQ rights in the Catholic-majority country.
Judges on Quito's constitutional court ruled five-to-four on Wednesday to overhaul the country's laws, arguing that its current marriage legislation was discriminatory and unconstitutional, and that same-sex couples should be allowed equal rights.
The four dissenting judges said that changes to the Ecuadorean constitution should be decided and approved by the government and not the court.
Ecuador's National Assembly will still be required to officially change the laws that define the institution of marriage. Constitutional lawyer Salim Zaidán told CNN, however, that Wednesday's verdict was binding and that same-sex couples would be able to marry as soon as the constitutional court notifies local government offices of their decision. The court has 10 days to do so.

Boys can wear skirts, girls can wear pants for school uniforms in Mexico City
‘We are announcing something very simple but for us very transcendent. I think the times have passed in which girls have to wear a skirt and boys have to wear pants,’ Sheinbaum said.
‘Boys can wear skirts if they want and girls can wear trousers if they want.’
According to her comments, the new policy will come into effect immediately. It does away with the old policy stating ‘just as the skirt is the basic garment of a girl’s daily school uniform, so trousers are for boys’.
Sheinbaum, who is a member of the left-wing political Morena party, described the policy as ‘a condition of equality, of equity’.
Education Minister Esteban Moctezuma supported Sheinbaum’s decision. He also suggested other states in the North American country may soon follow suit.

Inside the Fight to Uncover the Truth About Trump’s Anti-LGBT Crusade
In the wake of an explosive anti-transgender memo leaked from the Department of Health and Human Services and published by the New York Times, LGBT advocates have questions: Who proposed that “sex” be defined by original birth certificate? Was there any pushback? Who, if anyone, was consulted?
But under an administration that has not exactly been forthcoming on LGBT issues, the only way to get answers might be through Freedom of Information Act requests, the Human Rights Campaign says.

Religion and Sexual Shame
The World Health Organization once estimated that more than 100 million couples around the globe make love during a typical day. Sex is a powerful human force. It’s natural, healthy, normal and wonderful. However, Western religion has spent millennia tainting it with shame, guilt and punishment. Holy men equate sex with “sin.”
The Bible contains 96 verses denouncing “harlots,” “whores,” “whoredom” and the like – branding many females as vile temptresses. It decrees that brides who aren’t virgins shall be taken to their fathers’ doorsteps and stoned to death (Deut. 22:21). It mandates that adulterers, both male and female, must be killed (Lev. 20:10). For gay males, it commands: “They shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them” (Lev. 20:13).
Today, a few evangelists such as Colorado preacher Kevin Swanson still declare publicly that gays should be killed.
Early church leaders ranted against lovemaking.

Sex abuse scandal in German Catholic Church sparks celibacy debate
For a long time now there has been argument within the church in Germany about the obligation for priests to remain unmarried. The sexual abuse scandal has reignited the discussion. A celibacy debate could tear the Catholic Church apart. But perhaps the impetus for reflection about the obligation to remain celibate is not in fact coming from academic reflection or long conferences of German bishops, but from the other side of the ecclesiastical world.

As MeToo storms the world, some techies are forming men's groups to talk about their emotions...sometimes, they cry
Andrew Horn couldn't remember the last time he released his anger.
The 32-year-old founder of Tribute.co, a video montage platform recently dubbed by the New Yorker as "Hallmark 2.0," recalled throwing things and slamming doors – but never actually expressing his anger. So, one of the attendees in his men's-only meeting group handed him a pillow while the others encouraged him to scream into it. He let out a guttural release of primal rage.
"I felt a lot better," he explained.
Horn says the key to unlocking his emotions has been discovering "modern masculinity," a movement of men exploring their emotions in small group settings.
California’s housing crisis is so bad people are living in cars
There is a shortage of affordable housing in every state in the country, but it's especially bad in California, where more and more people are discovering the only place they can afford to live is inside a car.
There's only one affordable housing unit for every five extremely low-income households in the state, and the gap isn't just pushing more and more people out onto the streets — it's also creating a new, fast-growing, and hidden class of homelessness.
WATCH: California 'Progressive' Church Pastor Claims Jesus Was 'A Person of Color That Was Killed By White Supremacy'
A “progressive” church in Santa Cruz, California likes to think of itself as progressive, serving beer during services and opening a brewery, while its pastor claims Jesus was a feminist and a “person of color that was killed by white supremacy.”
The pastor of the Greater Purpose Church, Christopher VanHall, said, “What would it look like to be a church that looked like the movement that Jesus started and not like the church that we know in America today? Out of that consistent questioning came this model for a brewery church that generates funds for local charities.”
