Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner (R) waded through more than 100 bills in his in box on Friday. Included in the ones he signed were a bill to ban the gay panic defense in criminal proceedings and a bill making it easier for transgender people to have their birth certificate altered.

The baldfaced president

Nixon said, "I am not a crook."

W said, "Sadaam Hussein has a massive stockpile of biological weapons." and "We do not know whether or not [Iraq] has a nuclear weapon."

Phoenix crowd videos itself committing hate crime

Phoenix transgender teen Dakota Kern, 18, was invited to a pool party this past weekend. She shouldn't have gone.

A crowd of at least a dozen started yelling homophobic and transphobic slurs at Dakota and her friend before someone grabbed Dakota by the hair, punched her a few times, knocking her to the ground, and someone took live video of at least three people kicking her repeatedly.

Shining light on pseudo-science

An Arizona man who appears to be a parent of a transgender child has posted an essay at Tucson.com.
