"Stay-at-home mom"--a redundancy if ever there was one.
It is natural as much as sickness is natural.
The lifestyle may be chosen, but the condition is not. It is a compulsion, and a sane society would devote efforts to humane treatment for those seeking it.
Anti-discrimination law is what transforms the dubious concept of "gay rights" into something sinister. The supposed high point of the Great Society has turned into a nightmare, and not only in matters involving homosexuals. The answer is freedom of association.

Wrong Sperm, Right Baby. Why the Lawsuit?

I think both are being disingenuous, perhaps in different ways. There is little argument that the law should be colorblind, but for most people their preferences are often affected by race. I am white and would not want to move into a black neighborhood, nor would I wish to marry a non-white woman. I want my children to be the same race as me. The reality is that race matters, to different degrees depending upon the situation. To make a fetish out of denying this also denies reality.

I have to wonder whether Mr. Jacoby is more offended by their lawsuit and hypocritical statements rationalizing it, or the fact that lesbian couple openly expressed a desire for a white baby, thereby violating the neoconservative "colorblindness" commandment?

As a collection of physical traits and more, which form patterns relating to behavior and result the creation of cultures, race is much more than "skin color." In Ferguson, yes, it would aid the process of justice to simply say a police office killed a civilian, but it begs the questions of why groups act as they do, omitting patterns that by now ought to be obvious to all, such as the reality of black-on-white crime, something like eight times greater than white-on-black. Justice must be colorblind, but matters become more complicated when social policies, such as affirmative action, are based on the denial of reality.

Death of a Teenager

Was this column really written by Donald Lambro? As Reaganite12 notes, it's something one would more likely expect to see in the Huffington Post or New York Times than in Town Hall. The more facts come out, the more it appears that this is another frenzy whipped up by the usual suspects, the media and black activists, much like the Trayvon Martin case. Anytime one refers to Michael Brown as "an unarmed teenager," beware--spin zone ahead.
I'm very sympathetic to Suzanne Fields' complaint, however the two commenters below illustrate the conundrum: the politically-correct university is not the place where one can reasonably expect to experience the values of classical literature. I suppose you could select professors carefully and wend your way around the worst of it, but at this point one might be better advised to seek out some of the few lesser-known colleges where veneration for the classics still exists. A sad commentary, for sure, when our most prestigious universities have fallen to those marching in lockstep through our institutions (h/t: A. Gramsci).

An Open Letter to the Political Right

Gary Johnson is one of those libertarians who's literally "nowhere" (borrowing Derek Hunter's term) on the political map. He's for open immigration; is friendly to the "gay rights" agenda to the point where he'd probably ridicule the idea that there is such a thing; and, once said that as a man he felt he had no business even expressing an opinion about abortion. He also participated in the Republican primary of 2008, withdrawing early after receiving somewhere around one-percent of the vote.
