Writer has Facebook meltdown after being fired from newspaper for saying there are “only two sexes”

Jon Caldara (Youtube screenshot) Jon Caldara is a regular columnist for The Denver Post. Or rather, he was until last week, when he was abruptly fired after publishing a rambling op-ed that attacked LGTBQ inclusion in public schools. While the newspaper hasn’t clarified exactly why Caldara was let go, he believes it has to do with that fact that, in his op-ed, he argued that calling people by their preferred proper pronouns violates his free speech. Then he accused LGBTQ people of being too “...

A Love Letter To Charlottesville

I am not surprised that my beloved Charlottesville took the hit for all of us last weekend by standing up so bravely to the hatred, violence, vitriol, and bigotry that invaded the town. Charlottesville set an example for us all.I came to this picturesque college town, home to the University of Virginia, after graduating from what is more commonly known as the “Fame School” in New York City, Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts. My high school was exceptionally di...

Controversial TV: A Look at What Originally Caused Headaches

Controversial TV: A look at what originally caused headaches When controversial TV topics hit, they often create a bigger fuss than their film counterparts. Television comes into the home, and unless you want to be that weirdo who doesn’t have television, the broadcast networks are always available. Over the years, the entertainment industry (both television and film) has carefully self-censored itself to avoid the government getting too involved. Even still, there is always someone (or a few...

The Emotional Turmoil of Learning Your Spouse is Transgender

There is perhaps nothing more painful than mourning the loss of a loved one who is still living. A loved one who is no longer recognizable. No longer the man you married. Literally. We can never gauge the time it takes to recover from the damage of watching the man you love transition himself into something else: A woman. A new awareness of the transgender experience may influence how people see traditional marriage. But how many family members have been left in emotional turmoil in the af...

Is It Time To Drop The “T” From LGBTQ? This Guy Says Yes… And Do It Fast!

“With marriage equality a reality and gay folks enjoying increased rights, social progressives are looking for the next cause du jour,” openly gay lawyer and author Joseph R.
