Pro-life group Live Action released its second undercover video Tuesday, titled, "Sexed: Planned Parenthood's Dangerous Advice for Kids," which shows a counselor advising an underage girl to go to a sex shop as she describes how to start experimenting with bondage and the various fetishes people have.
Even though it is against municipal law for a minor to enter a sex store, according to Live Action, the Planned Parenthood counselor tells the undercover 15-year-old that there are "tons of sex shops around here" that she and her boyfriend can visit in order to try different sex acts.
The counselor is also seen advising the young girl to come up with a safe word as she experiments with BDSM sex, which is described as: bondage and discipline/dominance and submission/sadism and masochism. A safe word is used to let the partner know that the sexual act is hurting them. more >>
A California trial court has backed a private Southern Baptist school over its right to expel a transgender student, who is accused of committing fraud by applying for admission as a female. The court has also, however, awarded $4,000 in damages to the plaintiff for being excluded from the school's ancillary programs that are open to the public, such as the library and restaurants.
MSNBC reported on Monday that the student in question is 27-year-old Domaine Javier, who was born as a biological male but has identified as female since childhood. California Baptist University expelled Javier for fraud violations in 2011, after Javier appeared in an episode of MTV's "A True Life" and admitted to being born a male.
Javier's attorneys argued that CBU had violated California's Unruh Civil Rights Act, which prohibits discrimination based on various categories, including sex and sexual orientation. more >>
