Murderous Mom Gets Life In Prison




Jessica Dutro is a 25 year-old mother of four from Oregon, and she was just sentenced to life in prison, after being found guilty of murdering her four year old son, because she suspected that he was gay.

Dutro used the social media site, Facebook, to write to her boyfriend (Brian Canady - 24) that she feared her son (Zachary Dutro-Burgess) was gay because "he walks and talks like it" and that Brian would have to work 'work on' Zachary 'big time' to fix the problem.

On August 14th, 2012 (the day after Zachary turned 4) Zachary was rushed to the hospital after collapsing at the Good Neighbor Center.  Doctors at the hospital determined that Zachary was suffering from tears in his bowels, which resulted from blunt-force trauma to his mid-section.  The trauma was caused two days earlier, and the contents of his bowels were leaking, poisoning him from the inside.

Zachary was also covered with bruises, as was his older sister.

Dutro received life in prison, and is not eligible for parole until she's served 25 years.  Her boyfriend (Canady) received a 12 and half year sentence after getting a plea bargain, and testifying against Dutro.

TV Host BScott Loses Discrimination Lawsuit




BScott is a popular style expert, blogger, and transgender TV personality.  Recently he/she (on his personal website BScott uses both pronouns to refer to him/herself) was asked to be on the red carpet for a BET (Black Entertainment Television) event.  When BScott arrived, he/she was wearing make-up, had long hair styled in a feminine manner, and was wearing a wardrobe that was feminine.

BScott interviewed one celebrity in this appearance, and then was pulled backstage and told he/she would need to change, and appear more masculine.  BScott finished the assignment with a more masculine appearance, but when it was over, he posted emails he received from producers that complained about his looking "like a woman" on his YouTube account.  He/she then opted to bring a discrimination lawsuit against the BET network.

BScott recently lost that case, it was dismissed by the judge, who cited the first amendment and said that BET has the freedom of speech to produce their show how they see fit.

Scott has said he/she feels "truly hurt" by the event, but will be appealing the decision.

UK Nursery Worker Fired For Refusing to Read Gay Themed Book





Sarah Mbuyi was a worker at a UK nursery school, until she was recently fired. She is now taking that school to court with the claim of 'wrongful dismissal' and religious discrimination.

Mbuyi is a Christian originally from Belgium, and when she started to work at the Newpark Childcare Center, she began to harass a lesbian coworker, giving her a bible, and refusing to read books about same-sex families to the children.

Mbuyi claims she had many conversations about her religious beliefs and was often asked about them by her gay colleague.  Mbuyi claims she was pressed to give her Christian views on homosexuality. ‘When I said 'No, God does not condone the practice of homosexuality, but does love you and says you should come to Him as you are', [her colleague] became emotional and went off to report me to my manager’ she said.

Homophobic Tirade Blamed on Hackers




Jon Jones is a US heavyweight championship fighter, he's actually the youngest Ultimate Fighting Champion, and he finds himself in the middle of a scandal.

Jones had recently been having an online fight with someone on Instgram, a Swedish man named Danii Javid.  During the online spat, Jones used the terms "fag shit", "fag boy", and stated that 'homosexuality is a sin'.

The fight started when Javid posted to Twitter that Jones avoided a certain fight, and the comments caused Jones to reply.

In response to the furore surrounding the comments, the president of UFC Dana King released a statement defending Jones. King claims a thief stole Jones’ phone, hacked into his Instagram account and starting posted the insults on to Javid’s page.   Says King:  ‘He got hacked.  Originally when I found out he was being hacked, I was like, ‘What, are we all going to say stupid stuff and then say we got hacked?’ But if you look at his timeline, first of all he rarely posts anything or responds with comments on Instagram – and he got hacked.’

James Van Der Beek On Michelle Williams




Actor James Van Der Beek is set to begin staring in a new TV show called Friends With Better Lives, and he has hit the promotional circuit.  At one of his stops, Van Der Beek took some time to talk about his former costar, Michelle Williams.

He and Williams were on the top-rated show "Dawson's Creek", with Katie Holmes and Joshua Jackson.  While they all have continued in show business, Michelle's star has truly risen.  Since the show ended, Williams has been nominated for an Oscar three times, and been in both indie films as well as blockbusters like Oz The Great and Terrible, as well as critically acclaimed faire such as Brokeback Mountain.

When describing Williams, Van Der Beek notes that,  "She was always a deep thinker, way beyond her years.  She was the youngest of us, age-wise, and the oldest in every other way."

Kate Mara Talks Transcendence




Kate Mara's schedule has been very active.  She's currently filming the new Fantastic Four film, and has finished her time with the Netflix series "House Of Cards".  On top of all that, she now is hitting the promotional circuit for Transcendence.

The movie stars Johnny Depp as Will Caster, an artificial intelligence expert who becomes the target of an assassination attempt by R.I.F.T, the group led by Mara's character, Bree. He is mortally injured in the attack and his wife, played by Rebecca Hall, and friend, played by Paul Bettany, try to download his thoughts and memories to keep part of him alive.

Mara went on to say that she was attracted to "Transcendence" because she felt it would get people talking about he two different extremes/sides in the film, and which side they felt they belonged on.

When asked if she was a "techie", Mara says she falls somewhere in the middle.  She's not as tech-savvy as she should be, but she does rely on it, and doesn't know how she would feel if she lost the current technology that exists today.

Past of KKK Leader Exposed





Earlier this month, two Jewish centers were attacked, and three people lost their lives in those attacks.  A suspect has been arrested in those attacks, his name is Frazier Glenn Miller, and he is a former leader of a chapter of the KKK (Ku Klux Klan)

Miller is a self-described "white supremacist, anti-Semite, anti-homosexual' and was the founder of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and acted as its 'Grand Dragon' (the highest-ranking Klansman in a given state)

With his recent arrest, past activities are coming to light, and the latest news is that he was arrested in the 1980s after being found in the back of his car with a black man who was dressed as a woman, having sex.

In a recorded phone call with the Southern Poverty Law, he claimed that he had lured the prostitute to the meeting with the intention of beating him.  However, Miller doesn't go into details such as when he became aware that the prostitute was in fact a male, and how the beating turned into sex.

Japan's First Lady Joins Pride Parade





Akie Abe is the first lady of Japan, and wife of conservative Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

While she was raised in a conservative family, and married to a conservative man, Abe decided to give a public display of support and tolerance to the LGBTI community by taking part in Japan's gay pride parade on April 27.

While her husband was visiting victims of the March 2011 Tsunami, Akie Abe was on a float, wearing a white suit that was adorned with rainbow ribbons and badges.  She spent her time on the float waving to parade attendees and rubbing elbows with drag queens.

After the parade, Abe posted this to her Facebook page: ‘I want to help build a society where anyone can conduct happy, enriched lives without facing discrimination.  I had the pleasure of spending fun time filled with smiles. Thank you.’

Hotel Protests Target Hassanal Bolkiah






Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah is the owner of the Beverly Hills Hotel, a hotel that Hollywood spends a lot of money at.  Recently, protests have started to take place outside the hotel in response to Sultan's response to homosexuality in Brunei.

Bolkiah has instituted a new penal code in Brunei, and part of that code relates to homosexuality, and this code calls for the stoning of homosexuals.

In response to this, protests have started to take place in front of the Beverly Hills Hotel, with protestors carrying signs that state:  ‘This hotel is owned by homophobes’.

Cameron Silver, who helped to organize the protest, felt it was time for the hotel franchise to recognize their connection to Brunei.  ‘I'm here because I believe the Dorchester Collection needs to make a direct statement about their connection to the Sultan of Brunei’

HRC Announces Push In Three Southern States






The HRC (Human Rights Campaign) has recently announced their plans to push for gay rights in three Southern states in the US.  The three states (Mississippi, Arkansas and Alabama) were picked because they don't support gay marriage, civil unions,  or workplace discrimination laws.

The push is being called "Project One America" and is the largest LGBTI equality campaign in the south.  It has a budget of $8.3 million, and over 20 people working on it. 

According to HRC president Chad Griffin: 'Project One America is an unparalleled effort to close that gap, and it opens up a bold, new chapter in the LGBT civil rights movement of this generation. In this grand struggle for equality, we can’t write off anyone, anywhere.'

Bill O'Reilly Explains Why Gay Marriage Is Winning




Fox News personality Bill O'Reilly credits 'threats and demonization' for helping to put gay marriage 'over the top' in the US.

O'Reilly has stated on his show that there is no longer 'robust debate' on the topic of gay marriage, and holds up the resignation of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich as an example.

O'Reilly went on to say that gay marriage activists have the mentality of: 'If you donate money to a traditional marriage cause, okay, we're going to hurt you. We're going to hurt you. We're going to find out where you live. We are going try to take your job. Maybe do vandalism to your home.'  However, after making that statement, O'Reilly was not able to give any examples of physical attacks or vandalisms that have taken place in the name of support for gay marriage.

Last March, O'Reilly had a different opinion when he said:  'The compelling argument is on the side of homosexuals, that’s where the compelling argument is.  "We’re Americans. We just want to be treated like everybody else." That’s a compelling argument, and to deny that, you have got to have a very strong argument on the other side.'

Fossil Named In Ang Lee Tribute





It appears some paleo-herpetologists -- i.e., zoologists specializing in ancient reptiles -- are also avid kung fu fans.

Fossilized remains of a new species of pterodactyloid (a flying lizard) was found in a 'dinosaur death pit' in China, and very near to filming locations of Ang Lee's "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon". 

After finding the bones, a group of U.S. and Chinese scientists named the animal "kryptodrakon progenitor,".  Kryptodrakon literally translates to "Hidden Dragon", an obvious nod to filmmaker Ang Lee.

The Crouching Tiger franchise will also soon find itself jumping back in time, when the upcoming Weinstein Company-produced prequel, "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon II: The Green Destiny", goes into production in New Zealand later this year, starring Donnie Yen and Michelle Yeoh, but Ang Lee will not be involved in that film.

Anne Hathaway - Thanks For Not Smoking






Anne Hathaway showed up at a screening of Rio 2 thrown by the Lollipop Theater Network in Burbank Saturday wearing a black blouse that has the phrase "no smoking" in various languages on it.

Hathaway reprised her role as 'Jewel', the blue macaw parrot from the first Rio movie.

It was the second time Anne wore the top this week, which she paired with a black maxi skirt and white stilettos.

Hathaway sideswept her pixie cut and sported minimal make-up as she posed outside Nickelodeon Animation Studios.
