If you’re not convinced the media is on board with the LGBT agenda, think again. On the evening of March 23, NYC vandals damaged a bus displaying a conservative message about gender, and even tackled the vehicle’s driver. Although liberal media outlets condemned the bus’s message prior to the incident, few reported on the vandalism and its ironic assault on free speech. And if they did, biased headlines labelled the vehicle “transphobic” or “anti-transgender.”

Even Ellen’s a bit baffled by “gender fluidity” and preferred pronouns. In a March 20 interview with actress Asia Kate Dillon, the lesbian show host discussed the confusing concept of identifying as “non-binary.” “I think people assume just because I’m gay I understand all this,” she quipped.

This weekend, LGBT activists across the country rejoiced to see Disney’s first gay character, LeFou, in Beauty and the Beast.

Katy Perry did more than just sing about kissing a girl and liking it. At its L.A. gala this weekend, the Human Rights Campaign awarded Katy Perry the Ally for Equality award for her LGBT advocacy. In her acceptance speech, the pop star spent ten minutes criticizing her Christian upbringing while championing “sexual fluidity.” And, predictably, the feminist media loved it.

Not three years after announcing the “transgender tipping point,” TIME magazine began exploring the next cultural frontier: a society, no longer labelled by the strict binaries of male and female. But how much of the gender and sexual-fluidity craze is actually spurred on by Hollywood and the liberal media?

Snoop Dogg recently pulled a gun on Donald Trump in a music video, and, then, his nephew threatened the First Lady. But the networks didn’t mention it.

Far-left comedian Chelsea Handler is divisive, childish, crude and hateful, even while she criticizes President Trump for the same traits. In the following quiz, you'll find a selection of quotes - some are hers. Let's see how well you know this liberal darling. She's sure to shock.

A century after the Armenian Genocide, another war is being waged. This time, the battleground is the theater, and the fight is to preserve or re-write history.

Chock full of obscenities, clowns and weed, Snoop Dogg’s new music video has a nightmarish quality to it. Oh yeah, and the rapper shoots Donald Trump with a fake gun at the climax. But that hardly fazed the media.

Bias is not always intentional, but when it comes to the media, Hollywood and universities, it’s systematic. In his new book Fault Line, Faithwire senior editor Billy Hallowell examines this triangle of liberal influence and its pervasive impact on American culture today. But he also points out a hard truth—conservatives and Christians are partly to blame for our nation’s “seismic shift” leftward.

Justin Trudeau is a liberal woman’s dream. He’s attractive, progressive and a self-proclaimed feminist. What’s not to love? But on International Women’s Day, the Canadian prime minister made feminists across North America really swoon. He pledged to contribute $650 million to women’s health initiatives, including fighting “anti-abortion” legislation across the world.

It is impossible to feel lukewarm about Lena Dunham. Like Hillary Clinton, the Girls actress and Lenny Letter co-founder inspires either deep revulsion or fawning acclaim. And that rift even extends to the liberal media world.

Tinsel Town is taking the “Day Without a Woman” quite seriously. According to a Hollywood Reporter report, many entertainment companies have lent support to the movement by holding events, focusing content on women and encouraging female staffers to take the day off. Meanwhile, celebrities have been tweeting in solidarity.

Sometimes, Cosmo surprises us... and not in the "I Walked in on a Foursome" and 15 Other OMG Confessions" kind of way. While the liberal, feminist magazine usually pushes progressive content, it occasionally runs trenchant pieces by conservative authors. At least one editor there must realize that conservative and liberal women can agree on several important tenets of feminism. For example, women should not be targeted or demeaned simply for their sex.
