Breitbart News has convinced concerned Christian families that Ontario’s new child protection laws will bring forth a queer totalitarian state, where parents who oppose their children’s gender identity, will have them forcibly removed from their homes.

After tweeting about almost being published in Teen Vogue on June 2, Toronto-based freelance writer, Roslyn Talusan’s call-out of the magazine went viral. Dozens of writers flooded her inbox with similar stories of being strung along and even ghosted by editors after successfully pitching and drafting personal stories and essays for Conde Nast’s supposedly most progressive, feminist magazine.

The Liberal government is moving forward with an amendment to the Criminal Code, as a result of the Jian Ghomeshi case. The change will, for the first time, ensure that a complainant’s text messages, e-mails and video recordings with sexual content or a sexual purpose can be kept out of trials.

Freelance writer and editor at Femsplain, Roslyn Talusan joins Jesse.
