Angry Conservatives Force School to Dump Book That Will ‘Make You Trans’  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
Angry Conservatives Force School to Dump Book That Will ‘Make You Trans’ Conservative outrage forced North Carolina educators to drop a book about a boy who likes wearing a dress from the curriculum. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools originally chose the book Jacob’s New Dress to be part of the anti-bullying program for first-graders. But after a teacher complained to state lawmakers, conservatives freaked out. The Charlotte Observer writes: “The purpose of our elementary schools is to teach writing, reading and arithmetic, not to encourage boys to wear dresses,” Tami Fitzgerald of the North Carolina Values Coalition said Tuesday. “These lessons found in the Jacob’s ...

Aaron Sorkin Somehow Didn’t Know About Hollywood’s Diversity Issues Until Now  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
Aaron Sorkin Somehow Didn’t Know About Hollywood’s Diversity Issues Until Now At a visit to the Writers Guild Festival on Saturday, writer/producer Aaron Sorkin learned that — surprise! — Hollywood has some problems with diversity. During a discussion about diversity, Sorkin asked the audience, “Are you saying that women and minorities have a more difficult time getting their stuff read than white men?” Believe it or not, he was not being sarcastic. “And you’re also saying that [white men]get to make mediocre movies and can continue on?” Sorkin continued, evidently unaware of the existence of Adam Sandler. Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, ...

Follow the Twitter Account That’s Trying to Take Down Breitbart  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
Follow the Twitter Account That’s Trying to Take Down Breitbart There’s an anonymous group working in the digital marketing sphere that has made its sole mission a simple one: to take down dangerous websites like Breitbart, the alt-right’s main digital mouthpiece. Interestingly, how this group — working under the moniker Sleeping Giants (@slpng_giants) — has decided to do that is by going after the company’s ad revenue. Breitbart is commonly known among progressives as the home of Steve Bannon (a former chairman and CEO before becoming Donald Trump’s chief White House strategist) and Milo Yiannopoulos, the openly gay mouthpiece of the alt-right movement who ...

Was Jesus Definitely Male? Some Scholars Are Actually Asking the Question  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
Was Jesus Definitely Male? Some Scholars Are Actually Asking the Question If the Shroud of Turin is to be believed as the authentic burial shroud of Jesus, then “the son of God” was most definitely a “son.” A recently published investigation into the shroud has actually identified the scrotum and right thumb of the man whose outline appears on the piece of cloth. Then again, some scholars believe the Turin Shroud is actually a forgery created in the Middle Ages. Asking the question of whether Jesus was male or female — or somewhere in between — most likely seems like an ...

These 6 Gay-Friendly Hotels Are the Best Mexico and Central America Have to Offer Like many of the world’s major tourist destinations, Mexico and Central America offer up some amazing gay-friendly hotels.

The money you would spend on luxe accommodations can go towards enhancing your vacay experience. Head to Latin America for its rich history, mouth-watering food and breathtaking vistas.

Hey, Media, Please Stop Drooling Over ‘Well-Dressed’ White Supremacists  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
Hey, Media, Please Stop Drooling Over ‘Well-Dressed’ White Supremacists We don’t know why journalists and writers keep gushing about how “dapper” and “well-dressed” white supremacists are, but we wish they would stop. Wait, what? It sounds absurd, but a lot of major media outlets have run pieces praising white supremacists and neo-Nazis for their fashion sense. These aren’t right-wing fringe rags, either. These are mainstream publications, some of them liberal. Mother Jones wrote a flattering profile of white nationalist “alt-right” (i.e. neo-Nazi) leader Richard Spencer. The headline praised his poise and fashion sense, calling him “dapper”: No thanks, Mother Jones. I do not want to ...

The 6 Best Tequila Cocktails in Mexico City  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
The 6 Best Tequila Cocktails in Mexico City Many people seem to have a love/hate relationship with tequila, but true booze connoisseurs bow down in awe to this agave fire water. Tequila comes from blue agave, a type of cactus found in a town called — you guessed it — Tequila. Most Mexicans will tell you that a high-quality tequila should only be enjoyed one way: sipped slowly, sans mixers or production value. But traditions are meant to be broken, so many Mexicans concoct delicious tequila-based creations. It can be mixed with Coca-Cola to make a charro negro (black cowboy), or with grapefruit soda for a paloma (dove). And ...

Trump Adviser and Babadook Impersonator Roger Stone Has Godawful Fashion Sense Right-wing propagandist and Donald Trump adviser Roger Stone believes he is a hip fashion icon. He isn’t. Oh my Gaga he isn’t. Still, his Twitter account and his style blog offer a remarkable look into what a decrepit Dickensian villain considers dapper. Let’s take a look at his extraordinary fashion sense. Steampunk To celebrate America’s regression to Gilded Age economic conditions and social attitudes, Stone dressed as a cartoon aristocrat. We suppose it’s meant to be a sort of “in-your-FACE-poor-people” gesture, but it doesn’t quite work. He looks like a capitalist from ...

College Republican Cries Persecution, and Queer Twitter Shuts Her Down A college Republican complained of political person because she was afraid her classmates would criticize her.

As Suspected, ‘CHiPS’ Reeks of Gay Panic and General Horribleness We pretty much called it in January, upon release of its first trailer: CHiPS is super scared of dicks. Now that reviews of the film — starring Michael Peña and Dax Shepard as two officers on the California Highway Patrol — are in, it’s clear that the entire film is filled with gay panic, internalized homophobia and just general grossity. (We made that word up.) It turns out the locker room scene we watched in the trailer — in which Peña’s “Ponch” character is, like, super grossed out by penises ...
