The U.S. Supreme Court's decision to block a lower court ruling requiring a Virginia school disctrict to base bathroom use upon gender identity highlights the "brazen lawlessness" of a North Carolina school district that seeks to do the same, says a Christian activist.

Contrary to conventional wisdom, millennials are not "hooking up" at an alarming rate; in fact, many are not having sex whatsoever, according to a study released this week.
In the study, published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, researchers Jean M. Twenge, Ryne A. Sherman, and Brooke E. Wells found that young people born in the 1990s were "significantly more likely to have no sexual partners" than Gen Xers. When controlled for a time period and age, the only generation with a higher rate of sexual inactivity than today's 20 to 24 year olds was the one born in the 1920s.
Researchers also found that 15 percent of Americans in their early 20s who were born in the 1990s reported being sexually inactive as compared to only 6 percent of those born in the late 1960s. more >>
