Radical Feminists and Conservative Christians Team Up Against Transgender People The right has been using the writings of trans-exclusive radical feminists to justify their crusade. It’s not the first time the far left and far right have teamed up. When you read the Christian Right’s wacky, ignorant statements about transgender people, have you ever wondered where they get this stuff? The answer, often, is feminists.

Long Live the Queen Wiki Cruelty is a hidden trait that reflects how many capricious or violent actions Elodie has taken. It can be raised by certain choices and activities, and it both locks and unlocks certain outcomes. Cruelty checks are usually invisible to the user, but certain events help you determine how cruel Elodie is. Cruel choices often increase the Angry or Willful moods (more often the former than the latter).
Sweden’s rape crisis isn’t what it seems - The Globe and Mail Sweden, the story goes, used to be very peaceful, very safe, very blond. Then it started letting in darker-skinned people. Soon there were news reports of attacks on Swedes. The Inner Forms the Outer - Parabola Photograph by Lee van Laer Human beings are peculiar creatures. We can think; and it sets us apart from other creatures, who can think some (consider the honeybee) but not much. Terrorism and the other Religions Contrary to what is alleged by bigots like Bill Maher, Muslims are not more violent than people of other religions. Murder rates in most of the Muslim world are very low compared to the United States. As for political violence, people of Christian heritage in the twentieth century polished off tens of millions of people in the two world wars and colonial repression. This massive carnage did not occur because European Christians are worse than or different from other human beings, but because they were the first to industrialize war and pursue a national model. Sometimes it is argued that they did not act in the name of religion but of nationalism. But, really, how naive.

A history of Section 18C and the Racial Discrimination Act While there have been some successful cases brought, less than five per cent of claims made under the Racial Discrimination Act make it to the courts and there the majority of them are dismissed. Section 18C makes it unlawful to commit a public act that is reasonably likely to offend, insult, humiliate or intimidate another person or a group of people based on their race. The Section outlines an unlawful act rather than a criminal offence and monetary damages or an apology are usually awarded to the person or group being discriminated against. Section 18D also includes broad ranging exemptions, such as 'in the performance… of an artistic work’ and ‘in making a fair comment on any event or matter of public interest if the comment is an expression of a genuine belief.’

The Catholic church's ongoing move away from the just war theory as "settled teaching" to a more expansive call to proactive peacemaking has been made clear in a global conference scheduled for April 11-13 in Rome. Sponsored by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace and Pax Christi International, the conference, "Nonviolence and Just Peace: Contributing to the Catholic Understanding of and Commitment to Nonviolence," is gathering educators and activists from all over the world, particularly from the global South. The precise purpose of the conference is to more fully develop a vision of nonviolence and just peace for the Catholic church. Five reasons underlie this pivot to a positive vision of peace and a point of view that goes well beyond the just war theory:

America’s Most Political Food In February of 2015, Kathleen Purvis, the food editor of the Charlotte Observer, drove to Birmingham, Alabama, to attend Food Media South, an annual symposium. The keynote session, “Hey, You, Pitch Me Something,” was meant to be a friendly wind-down to a weekend of talks. Participants were invited to get up in front of the editor of the Web magazine the Bitter Southerner and, well, pitch him something. There were several hundred people in the room. Purvis knew that in the name of politeness she should probably stay quiet, but she couldn’t resist the opportunity to “toss a good word grenade,” she recalled later, into a clubby crowd that she felt tended to overlook, along with chiffon cakes and canning, some of the most complicated questions about Southern cuisine.
