Who Is Really Afraid to Shop, Worship, or Go to School?

“We shouldn’t be afraid to shop, worship or go to school,” reads the headline over a recent column from Jim Shaw. Is anyone really afraid to do those things? Maybe some, but are those feelings based in factual reality or just feelings? Despite the intense (and at times downright ghoulish) media focus on mass shootings,

Is North Dakota’s First Openly Gay Lawmaker an Anti-Gay Bigot?

“Bigotry is alive and well in Bismarck,” writes Jim Shaw in his most recent column. “The North Dakota Legislature is standing still while the country goes forward on LGBT rights and protections,” he continues. It’s refreshing to see Shaw take a break from whining in print about former Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s loss in the last

Comparing The Transgender Bathroom Issue To The Civil Rights Movement Is Dumb

“If it wasn’t for the federal government, we would still have slavery, lynchings, Jim Crow laws, and bans against same-sex marriage,” Fargo Forum columnist Jim Shaw wrote recently. “The transgender bathroom debate is a phony bologna issue that local politicians need to speak out about, but they won’t because this is an election year.” There is
