Watch British Parliament HIGHlariously Debate Banning Donald Trump From Entering The Country!

You definitely don't see this with every American presidential candidate!

The British Parliament has been debating whether or not they should ban Donald Trump from the country over his bigoted and openly racist statements — and you can see their arguments (above)!!!

Obviously, Americans would be taken aback at this idea of banning people from entering a country just over words, but freedom of speech doesn't work in the same way in other countries as it does in the United States.

The UK has banned plenty of American celebrities for various reasons before, including Michael Savage, and even Martha Stewart! Another country, Australia, just recently banned Chris Brown, too!

So it's not totally unprecedented to get banned — but for a leading presidential candidate, well, this is a REALLY big deal!

What do U think of the debate over whether The Donald should be banned from the UK??

Also, can we pay Mexico to build a really tall wall right around Trump and ban him from America, too?!

Ha!!!

The actress and human rights activist took the floor in front of the House of Lords to discuss the way in which the terrorist organization has adopted rape as a policy and a tool, saying:

"The most aggressive terrorist group in the world today knows what we know, knows that it is a very effective weapon and they are using it as a centrepoint of their terror and their way of destroying communities and families, and attacking and dehumanising."

She mentioned that the radical group targets incredibly young girls and abuses them repeatedly.

Alongside former Foreign Secretary William Hague, she described a disturbing scene where she met one child victim:

Jerry Bance, a Toronto businessman, had been running for election to Parliament under Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper, when video footage from a 2012 episode of Marketplace captured the unusual urination.

Bance had been brought in as an appliance repairman and was unknowingly part of a sting operation on the show, which was designed to catch handymen overcharging homeowners for simple repairs.

As CBC cameras secretly rolled on Bance, and a producer pretending to be a homeowner left the room to let him work on her kitchen sink, well, the show got much more than they bargained for!

Ch-ch-check out the incredible video (below) and then see Bance's statement regarding his 2012 actions:

New Iraqi Law Will Allow Men To Marry Girls As Young As 8 Years Old AND Give Permission To Have Sex With Their Child Brides Without Consent!

Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadWedding Waltz

iraq law allows iraqi children married wives to be raped

Why would any grown person want to marry a child?! DISGUSTING!

But that’s exactly what Iraq’s new marriage law would allow. While the Sunnis and Shiites are co-existing in the country, their laws are still divided. This Jaafari Personal Status Law is named after the sixth Shiite imam, Jaafar al-Sadiq, whose principles governed the law’s creation.

If the new rule goes into effect, not only is it a HUGE step back for women's rights, but it will state that there will be no minimum age for marriage

Russia Passes Anti-Gay Bill And Imprisons Peaceful Protesters! Boo!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayLegal MattersPolitikLGBT

russia vladimir putin

Russia's legislature really put the low in lower house of Parliament on Tuesday.

In a 436-0 vote, the State Duma passed a bill that bans educating children about homosexuality, or as they put it "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations". This includes holding gay pride rallies.

Seriously, Russia? More education is the problem? Boo!

The bill still has to pass the upper house and be signed by President Vladimir Putin, but with such unanimous support no one doubts that it will succeed.

Gay rights activists showed up for a peaceful protest before the vote but were scattered, beaten, or in the case of two dozen, taken into custody!

Way to go, Russian government. We really feel sorry for all the many, many gay Russians that have to live in a country that refuses to understand them.

Because trust us, there are a lot more comrades in big muscular arms than you want to know!

Ukraine's Horrifying 'Gay Gag Rule' Has Been Defeated…For Now

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikLGBT

Ukraine gay gag rule defeated

It's absolutely terrifying that this legislation was even being CONSIDERED, but thankfully, the people of Ukraine and other European countries have stood up to defeat it.

The Ukrainian parliament was scheduled to vote on a new law on Friday which would make it illegal to "spread homosexuality" by "holding meetings, parades, actions, demonstrations and mass events aiming at intentional distribution of any positive information about homosexuality." Ukrainian citizens who broke the proposed law would be facing up to five years in prison for freely expressing any positive opinion about homosexuality through ANY medium.

Scary, right?

Although this exposed the frightening homophobia that is still felt around the globe, it gives us hope to hear that other foreign governments actively denounced the law, while thousands of people signed a petition against it.

On top of Ireland, Argentina, and the European Parliament speaking out against the oppressive law, AllOut.org delivered 120,000 signatures to Ukrainian authorities at the European Union and Council of Europe. Andre Banks, co-founder of the human rights organization, commented on the results of everyone's hard work by saying:
