Fashion Items no one over 30 should wear

1) converse I think Converse for example look utterly stupid on people after even about the age of 25. There’s a very uptight woman at my office over 40 who always wears them on casual Friday's and looks like a he’s really proud of herself as though she’s got edgy street style or something.

2) Bright green, pink, purple, blue hair dye.. Worn by mostly women who are around 50. Enough already! You think you’re expressing individuality but it’s not when 1000’s of other dowdy fraus like you are doing it too.

3) skinny jeans - on middle aged men who are anything but skinny. You look like the link below.

Two Icy Blondes.

Their careers seemed to overlap occasionally. "Cybill" ran during "Murphy Brown"'s reign at CBS. Cybill replaced Candice on Broadway in "The Best Man".

Where is a conceivable place to move to in the event this country becomes completely unlivable over the next 4-8 years?

I've always written off that notion of escaping the US, thinking it was a drama queen thing to say, and not very practical or appealing. I've always thought NYC would sustain me--I have a great apartment, I've lived here all my adult life, and it truly fees like a haven. However, this is the closest I've come to thinking it might become a real necessity to get out. Part of me still feels that's silly. Another part of me says the writing on the wall is pretty ominous.

Problem is: if one isn't in their 30s or 40s and can just swan off to another country, either because of age, family ties, or money, what to do? Also, if English is your one and only language? And what about the Social Security I'll be entitled to--what happens to that if you leave to live elsewhere?

I know this is Datalounge, but I'd appreciate serious, thoughtful reflections from others who are feeling similar issues of impending doom and hopelessness. Or is the U.S. just too damn big to implode into an unlivable, one-party-ruled police state?

Stevie Nicks - "If I had not had that abortion, I'm pretty sure there would have been no Fleetwood Mac,"


In response to the Supreme Court nomination of Amy Coney Barrett, the iconic singer opened up to The Guardian about her "generation's fight" for legal and safe abortions - as well as her own pregnancy termination in 1979.

"If I had not had that abortion, I'm pretty sure there would have been no Fleetwood Mac," Nicks said. "There's just no way that I could have had a child then, working as hard as we worked constantly. I would have had to walk away."

Now in her 70s, Nicks never had children — but she has no regrets. "I knew that the music we were going to bring to the world was going to heal so many people's hearts and make people so happy. And I thought, 'You know what? That's really important. There's not another band in the world that has two lead women singers, two lead women writers.' That was my world's mission."

Life insurance: do single gays need it?

Dumb question, I guess.

It's only for straight married people (or maybe lgbtq also in certain U.S. states, right?)? Or maybe also for those in lgbt civil unions?

I am single and will always be single.

If single or divorced, life insurance benefits cannot be passed on to parents or sons and daughters, or even nephews and nieces, right? So in my case, just don't worry about it, as it'll never apply to me?

I see job descriptions touting life insurance as one of their employee benefits. -- but that simply doesn't, and will likely never, apply to most gay males?

The Age of Innocence (1993)

Edith Wharton was a woman who was ahead of her time. Every character is so complex.

As I finished the novel, I ordered the Blu Ray from the Criterion Collection. Martin Scorsese directs tour de force performances from Daniel Day-Lewis, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Wiona Ryder. They are all brilliant.

The supporting cast is superb; Geraldine Chaplin, Sian Phillips, Marian Margolyes, Alec McCowen, Richard E. Grant, Norman Lloyd, Mary Beth Hurt, Stuart Wilson, Jonathan Pryce, Alexis Smith, Carolyn Farina, Robert Sean Leonard, and the legendary Michael Gough. Watching this film, I felt like every lead actor had read the novel and understood the material.

The cinematography was gorgeous, the music (Johann Strauss) is impeccable, and the set design and costumes are on point.

I have not even mention the incomparable narration of Joanne Woodward!!!!

What brilliant, intelligent, and artistic piece of literature and film. True art.

I’m not giving up but I really want to

There was another DL poster who posted a day or two ago about how he just feels like giving up because of the way this country is going. Although I’m not going to give up, and I’m going to keep voting Democrat, I really do feel like giving up. It feels like the end, and I really am starting to question what we’re fighting for. It’s just a never ending shitshow.

You have the Republican party, who is basically telling it’s constituents “If you vote for us, we promise to fuck everything up even more and make you more miserable.” And people vote for them anyway. Then you have the Democrats, who are the only hope but who are allowing a certain faction of its party to pull the entire to the party to the fringe. And I think that Joe Biden is a good guy, and he’s doing the best he can in a horrible situation, but his advisers are clearly advising him to go woke and that’s driving people away.

Surely someone in the Democratic Party has to be aware that saying “sorry, there’s nothing we can do about economy, you’ll just have to deal with it,” and then turning around and trying to pass a bill to “protect trans kids” is horrible optics. Even if there really is nothing he can do about the economy at the moment, a leader should never say that. A Republican scumbag would never admit that out loud.

Please, Democrats, I am begging you. Please, please, PLEASE. Drop the woke initiatives - the gender neutral passports, the silly pronouns, the “trans children“ nonsense, Latinx - and just tell the people how you’re going to improve their economic situation.

Do you allow people to change their minds after you’ve been rejected?

Not just in a romantic/sexual way. I currently rent a room in a house owned by my two housemates. They’re moving and had initially planned to sell, but are having trouble getting acceptable offers and are considering renting it out.

I offered to find a couple of other roommates and act as a sort of property manager in exchange for reduced rent. They initially said no, but later changed their minds and asked to take me up on my offer.

But I’m not interested in doing it now. You only get one bite at the apple with me and if you say no, then I move on. They say they’re in a bind but if that’s the case then they shouldn’t have turned their noses up when I first offered.

Yes, I suppose it’s petty, but I think as the ones who own the house, they’re used to having all the power and they don’t like it when the tables are turned. But fuck them.

Would you relent and do this after they rejected your offer the first time? I don’t give second chances to people as a general rule.

Charles M. Blow column on the pushback against gay rights

It's a good column, but the comments indicate that it's not just DL having trouble with grafting the T onto LGB:

"After marriage equality prevailed, LGBT orgs like HRC seemed to coalesce around a goal of abolishing the gender binary, something LGB people were never consulted about and something with which most of us strenuously disagree. Now we're faced with the fallout - rising anger towards our community, attempts to roll back our rights and more. The conflation of gender identity with sexual orientation and lumping us all under the same political umbrella has been an absolute and unmitigated political disaster. You can blame Republicans all you want - but the orgs claiming to represent us handed them and the right the very tools they needed to bring the destruction down on our heads we're seeing today."

"L.G.B.T.Q. proponents might want to contend with the sympathy the cause has lost over the years, thanks to edicts which defy biology as most people understand it and inclination to silence and punish any doubters in your own camp (the GOP obviously doesn't care), known familiarly as "cancel culture"."

"This is just the result of too much too soon. The messaging has become muddled and the ever-growing list of numbers, characters, and colors to represent what should be a simple concept is the most visible example."

These are NY Times readers — liberals — in favor of LGB rights in general. I wish they had voices in the pages of the Times, not just the comment section.

Anderson Cooper Reveals How Richard Gere Helped Him Realize He's Gay: 'I Couldn't Speak'

Anderson Cooper is opening up about his sexual awakening.

The Anderson Cooper 360° host, 55, recounted how meeting a shirtless Richard Gere at age 11 helped him realize he was gay as he appeared Friday on Radio Andy with pal Andy Cohen from the historic Stonewall Inn in New York City.

He recalled meeting his mom Gloria Vanderbilt's gay friends as a kid, such as Truman Capote, Gore Vidal and photographer Paul Jasmin, who along with his boyfriend, took a young Cooper to see a Broadway show.

"And they took me to see Richard Gere in Bent, which if anyone doesn't know about the play Bent, it's about two gay guys in the concentration camp," Cooper recounted. "I mean the opening scene… It is the gayest thing you can imagine.

"And this was Richard Gere in 1977, Looking for Mr. Goodbar. He was so beautiful. And I'm there. My mom didn't go. It was just me and my mom's two gay friends," he continued.

Cooper explained that the opening scene features a man getting out of bed completely naked and putting on an SS uniform after sleeping with another man the night before.

"And I just remember being like, 'Oh my God, I'm gay. ... I'm totally gay.' And afterward, Paul Jasmin was friends with Richard Gere," he said. "Cause Paul Jasmin took the pictures for American Gigolo and we go backstage and Richard Gere is shirtless in his dressing room.

"And I couldn't speak. And I had my Playbill and I wanted to get him to autograph it, but I was too — I just couldn't stop staring his chest. And so, fast forward to 10 years ago, I was interviewing Richard Gere and I took out the Playbill ... and I told him the whole story and I had him sign it. Yeah. He was very tickled with it," Cooper added.

Cooper, who co-parents sons Wyatt Morgan, 2, and 4-month-old Sebastian Luke with ex-partner Benjamin Maisani, opened up to PEOPLE about their arrangement

"I've always believed that if you've been with somebody and that ends, in terms of an intimate relationship, if you love somebody, there's no reason why that love shouldn't continue," Cooper said in September.

‘Secret City,’ an Epic Narrative History of the Closet in the Capital

James Kirchick’s new book tallies the cost of homophobia on lives and careers in Washington, D.C., from the days of F.D.R. to the Clinton presidency.


The Hidden History of Gay Washington

By James Kirchick

826 pages. Henry Holt. $38.

“Secret City,” by James Kirchick, is a sprawling and enthralling history of how the gay subculture in Washington, D.C., long in shadow, emerged into the klieg lights. But it’s also a whodunit to rival anything by Agatha Christie. How did so many promising men in government wind up dead before their time, by such variously violent means?

John C. Montgomery, a Princeton graduate and the Finnish desk chief at the State Department: hanged in the nude by his bathrobe belt from a third-floor banister. Roger D. “Denny” Hansen, champion swimmer at Yale, Rhodes scholar, National Security Council appointee and professor: asphyxiated in a friend’s garage. Lester C. Hunt, Army Reserve major and a governor of Wyoming turned senator: shot in the head while on a leather swivel chair in his office. Louis J. Teboe, affable accounting clerk at the Interior Department’s Bureau of Indian Affairs: stabbed in an alleyway with a stiletto knife. And that’s just by Page 226 of a book that stretches to over 800. We’ve yet to reach the tuxedoed lobbyist overdosing at the Ritz to the tune of “A Little Night Music.”

Excepting Teboe, who was lured and attacked by malevolent teenagers intending to rob him, the above cases were all suicides. But Kirchick reveals copious blood on the hands of the powerful, who for decades regarded alternative desires or any association with them as a “contagious sexual aberrancy,” and cause for immediate banishment from mainstream society — a Lavender Menace inextricably linked with the Red one. (Hunt’s fatal shame proved the power of association: His son, Buddy, had been charged once with solicitation at age 25.)

And yet the very skills gay people had to develop to survive — studiousness, compartmentalization, discretion, itinerancy — made them uniquely skilled, Kirchick points out, to sensitive tasks like espionage or high-level advising. For a long time, everyone in D.C. seemed to be looking over his shoulder, seeking signals, codes and clues — a “slight mince”; a “jelly hand shake”; a “limp wrist” or just overzealous grooming. These must have been harrowing existences, but their retelling makes for very good and suspenseful, if occasionally ponderous, reading.

Best carrot cake BAR NONE

I don't tend to like carrot cake because the icing has always been too sweet but the one made by Caroline's Cakes is absolutely divine. Had one delivered to our office for a bday and everyone raved that it was the best they'd ever had and I have to agree. I am ordering one for my brother's bday coming up. They ship overnight on ice. Rather pricey for a carrot cake but worth it.

Every fucking year I watch it on NYE and the ending makes me cry every fucking year!

This film is so beautiful, I don’t know how some people dislike it. It’s such a great film, brilliantly written and directed, and most of all, acted. James Stewart was tremendous in this, and I’ve never been a fan of Donna Reed, but she was lovely in this.

The ending is so iconic and never not touching upon rewatch. My favorite scene is when he has his meltdown though, it’s so sad how far he’s falling and taking it out on his family.

Happy gay movies suck

When are gay film makers going to deliver a movie that's as bitter and sour as DL, yet entertaining?

The new Bros movie has a dusting of snark over what is really a Hallmark film. Its climax of Pride faux mass happiness looks deeply naff.

Emotional affirmation movies are for adolescents. Even John Waters ended up wanting to pin on smiles. The last truly bitchy and entertaining movie I remember, written and directed by a gay man, was The Opposite of Sex, back in 1998. (All hail to thee Don Roos, you fucking genius.) But that's a looong time between drinks of water.

Does Seth Sikes Ever Stop LYING !?

This is irony at its finest. I was scrolling through Facebook and I see a post from Seth that says “ Somehow I was asked to contribute to the starry feature…” Let’s begin with the first part. “Somehow”? These things don’t just fall from the sky. Your tiny little publicist was just doing his job. And yes there were a few stars out of the 30 but it was more like who the fuck is who list, which explains how he got there.

And then the absolutely most absurd part for anyone who lives in New York is when he says this “The culture I belong to has less to do with sex than with sensibility. I go through my day talking to friends about arts and culture: …. Being gay is about so much more than sexual preference. It's about taste…..we mostly just sit around worrying about democracy and quoting The Golden Girls.” I can’t even determine where to start. I don’t even think he wrote this it sounds nothing like him. And his day-to-day life is all about sex. He is this gay cliché. You can’t find me six people between Manhattan and Fire Island who have not had sex with Seth Sikes. (Of course he’ll never remember because he has the most conveniently selective memory of any person I’ve ever known. he’s capable of remembering things that get him out of trouble never remembering anything that gets him into trouble) And all the times I’ve been around him arts and culture where never topics of conversation. Where he was going to find his Molly and enough dicks to suck through the night, that’s what he talked about. And the most absurd hysterical old lie is that he never watched the Golden Girls. He always said he had seen it just a few times just enough to have an idea of what it was about. All in all the article was a great representation of the Seth Sikes we all know, He’s all l pretense presentation and show, no substance or authenticity. She’s definitely swimming in the kid’s pool.

And the way he pretends to be humble is nauseating. Bl

And his lack self-awareness and how he’s actually perceived is mind-boggling and embarrassing.

And this is not a post to slut shame him. I say be the biggest slut you want to be. Although you can fill every orifice with cock and it will not fill the void inside of you. But I also feel like if he’s not capable of writing his own interview answers and writing them honestly he should at least have somebody do it for him who , Someone who knows him.

It would be amazing if he had the confidence to answer a question like this with total honesty rather than keep long lllllll thing a secret from any community who already knows the truth

I will say… No I’m not gonna add anything positive because who the fuck cares?

Daytime Emmys Tonight at 9:00 on CBS

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — After two years of real-life drama and isolation due to the coronavirus pandemic, the stars and shows of daytime television are gathering in person to hand out trophies at the Daytime Emmys.

Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner of “Entertainment Tonight” host the awards, which return to a full-capacity live ceremony at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium. The 2020 edition went virtual for the first time because of COVID-19. Last year’s show was taped with a limited audience on hand.

The 49th annual awards air Friday at 9 p.m. ET on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.

Presenters include Drew Barrymore, Deidre Hall, Tamron Hall and Cameron Mathison. Michael Bolton will sing his new song “Beautiful World” and perform during the In Memoriam segment.

For the first time, a soap and its spinoff are pitted against each other in the daytime drama series category. NBC’s “Days of Our Lives” goes against the Peacock streamer “Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem.” Also contending are “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless,” both on CBS, and ABC’s “General Hospital.”

“The Young and the Restless” headed into the show with a leading 18 nominations, including six in the main acting categories. “General Hospital” has 17 nods. Those are two of four remaining soaps still airing on the broadcast networks.

Pat Sajak is competing against himself and three others in the game show host category. He’s nominated for his longtime gig on the syndicated “Wheel of Fortune” as well as for the celebrity edition that airs on ABC.

With Ellen DeGeneres having recently retired from her talk show, Kelly Clarkson is poised to take over her mantle in addition to DeGeneres’ old timeslot. The singer could nab a third straight entertainment talk show host trophy, and her syndicated show is vying for its second consecutive honor.

John Aniston, father of Jennifer, is being honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award for his 37-year role as Victor Kiriakis on “Days of Our Lives.”

Last week’s Creative Arts and Lifestyle ceremony crowned some famous names.

Patti Scialfa, wife of Bruce Springsteen, has her own trophy to add to the family shelf. She was an executive producer on PBS’ “Shelter Me: Soul Awakened,” which won for daytime special.

John Legend, already an EGOT winner (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony), added a Daytime Emmy as an executive producer of PBS’ “The Black Church,” which won for short form daytime program.

DeGeneres’ eponymous show won for writing team for a daytime non-fiction series, earning the comedian the final Daytime Emmy of her decorated 19-year run.

Brian Laundrie's notebook show he wrote 'I ended her life, I thought it was merciful'

Brian Laundrie's notebook, recovered from a Florida swamp by the FBI, appears to include a confession that he was the one who killed Gabby Petito.

"I ended her life," the notebook said, Fox News reported Friday. "I thought it was merciful, that it is what she wanted, but I see now all the mistakes I made. I panicked. I was in shock."

He wrote that he chose to kill her after she injured herself from a fall in Wyoming.

"From the moment I decided, took away her pain, I knew I couldn't go on without her," Laundrie wrote, according to the Fox News images.

Laundrie and Petito set out on a cross-country road trip in fall 2021 that ended in both of their deaths. They had heavily documented their travels on social media, and it was made public that Petito went missing on September 11.

Laundrie returned home to his parents' house in Florida until he, too, went missing on September 13. Shortly after, he was named a person of interest in Petito's death.

Petito's body was found at a remote campsite in the Bridger-Teton National Forest on September 19. Her cause of death was unclear at first, but nearly a month later, the Teton County coroner said Petito's cause of death was strangulation.

It wasn't until October 21 that authorities found remains confirmed to be Laundrie's in Florida's Carlton Reserve. They also recovered a backpack full of his things, including the notebook.

A medical examiner on November 23 ruled Laundrie's death a suicide.

"I Loved you more than anything," the note — which is addressed to "Gabby" — in Laundrie's notebook continued, according to Fox News' images.

"I can't bear to look at our photos, to recall great times because it is why I cannot go on," he wrote. "When I close my eyes I will think of laying on the roof of the van, falling asleep to the sight of a meteor shower at the crystal geyser. I will always love you."

He apologized to "everyone this will affect," namely Petito's family, whom he wrote he "loves," Fox News reported.

"Please do not make this harder for them. This occurred as an unexpected tragedy," Laundrie wrote.

In the note, Laundrie described the injury he said Petito suffered, saying that he heard a "splash and a scream" near where they were camping in Utah, where Laundrie said temperatures were below freezing.

When he said he found her in the water, he said she was "freezing cold" and had "a small bump on her forehead that eventually got larger." He said he tried to carry her to safety but was unsure where their car was parked and that Petito wouldn't let him carry her back across the creek she fell into.

He described lying with Petito, who would get angry whenever Laundrie shook her awake from sleep, he said, because he was fearful she had a concussion.

He said he did not know the extent of her injuries, "only that she was in extreme pain."

Laundrie wrote that he then "rushed home to spend any time I had left with my family."

He added that he considered driving north to where Petito's family lived and letting her stepdad or brother kill him as "I'm sure they would have liked to."

"I am ending my life not because of a fear of punishment but rather because I can't stand to live another day without her. I've lost our whole future together, every moment we could have cherished," Laundrie wrote at the end of his note, Fox News reported.

"I'm sorry for everyone's loss. Please do not make life harder for my family, they lost a son and a daughter. The most wonderful girl in the world. Gabby I'm sorry," he added.

"I have killed myself by this creek in the hopes that animals may tear me apart. That it may make some of her family happy," Laundrie wrote. "Please pick up all of my things. Gabby hated people who litter."

Lake Mead nears dead pool status as water levels hit another historic low

Lake Mead's water levels this week dropped to historic lows, bringing the nation's largest reservoir less than 150 feet away from "dead pool" — when the reservoir is so low that water cannot flow downstream from the dam.

Lake Mead's water level on Wednesday was measured at 1,044.03 feet, its lowest elevation since the lake was filled in the 1930s. If the reservoir dips below 895 feet — a possibility still years away — Lake Mead would reach dead pool, carrying enormous consequences for millions of people across Arizona, California, Nevada and parts of Mexico.

"This is deadly serious stuff," said Robert Glennon, an emeritus professor at the University of Arizona who specializes in water law and policy.

Persistent drought conditions over the past two decades, exacerbated by climate change and increased water demands across the southwestern United States, have contributed to Lake Mead's depletion. Though the reservoir is at risk of becoming a dead pool, it would most likely take several more years to reach that level, Glennon said.

In the meantime, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and water managers across the southwestern United States are making efforts to manage the flow of water into the Colorado River and regulate water use among states in the region. These measures are designed to help replenish Lake Mead, which was created on the Colorado River on the Arizona-Nevada border when the Hoover Dam was built in the early 1930s, and another severely depleted reservoir, Lake Powell, which was created along the border of Utah and Arizona.

Dead pool would not mean that there was no water left in the reservoir, but even before Lake Mead were to hit that point, there are concerns that water levels could fall so low that the production of hydroelectric power would be hindered.

"Electricity generation in our western reservoirs becomes a problem as the water level in the reservoirs goes down," Glennon said.

As a reservoir is depleted, there is less water flowing through turbines and less liquid pressure to make them spin, which means the turbines produce less electricity, he added.

Glennon said water levels at Lake Mead have seen unexpectedly significant declines in recent years. At roughly this same time last year, Lake Mead's elevation was measured at around 1,069 feet, according to the Bureau of Reclamation. In 2020, water levels at the end of June were around 1,087 feet.

In late April, Lake Mead's declining water level exposed an intake valve that first began supplying Nevada customers in 1971. The following month, two sets of human remains were discovered as a result of the reservoir's receding shoreline.

Glennon said the situation at Lake Mead is forcing local officials to take "dramatic steps" to replenish the reservoir, particularly as climate change is expected to worsen drought conditions in the West and will continue to affect how much water flows into the Colorado River.

"This is the 23rd year of drought, and we don't know if it's a 23-year drought, a 50-year drought or maybe it's a 100-year drought," he said. "We just don't know what's going to turn this around."

Keep in mind that it was a WOMAN who brought down Roe v. Wade

Perhaps more than any other woman, Marjorie Dannenfelser is responsible for the fall of Roe vs. Wade.

The president of Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America, a nonprofit group that works to end abortion in the United States by electing antiabortion politicians, Dannenfelser has dedicated her adult life to outlawing abortion. In 2016, she played a key role in getting President Trump to commit to appoint U.S. Supreme Court justices who oppose abortion.

The Los Angeles Times asked Dannenfelser, 56, about the fall of Roe, her antiabortion journey and her strategy for outlawing abortion nationwide. This interview has been edited for clarity and length.

After decades working in antiabortion politics, you are watching Roe vs. Wade fall. In what sense is this a historic moment?

It’s the culmination of almost 50 years of work. There was no certainty that this moment would come at all. But every single time there's a failure or a setback, this movement has grown. And that is a marker of an authentic human rights movement: It draws more in difficulty than it does in success sometimes.

You’ve written: “No other issue, however worthy, carries a moral weight equal to that of the unborn child in the womb.” How did you get from being a pro-choice Republican to believing that abortion is about human rights, not women's rights?

I grew up in fairly polite society. You just didn't think or talk about this issue. I think that polite society has kept the harsh reality of that human rights violation away from the public eye and from one individually. So I never thought about it. I knew that I would have [an abortion] if I needed one. I just considered it part of living.

But that ability to keep what an abortion is out of your thoughts, out of your mind … when I approach the reality of what the object of the abortion is, and then what happens in an abortion, I mean, it is really hard to ignore the reality of a procedure that tears a small human apart limb from limb. It's that — imagining the too horrible to imagine — that finally set my thoughts in process.

In college at Duke, I started pre-med and ended up in philosophy. I had a lot of friends who were very pro-life. They showed a movie on campus, "The Silent Scream" narrated by Dr. Bernard Nathanson, a prolific abortionist who changed his mind to being pro-life. He showed an abortion through a sonogram, and you could see what was happening. I remember I was like, “That is just insulting. I am not going to watch that.” But I had these conversations with people peppering me with difficult questions: “What happens in an abortion?” “What is the object?”

Like, if you're getting your appendix out, that's the object. If you're getting your tonsils taken out, that's the object. What is the object in an abortion?

Taking stock of the last few decades, how was Roe undone? What were the key turning points? How pivotal was 2016, when you got President Trump to commit to nominating justices who opposed abortion?

All of a sudden, in Jan. 22, 1973, there is a need for a huge movement, because every single pro-life law has been wiped off the books by the Supreme Court. So we required some sort of strategy quick, without any grass roots, just a handful of people. So that first wave was figuring out: "Oh, we need a movement and what do we do?"

In the second wave, the movement started to grow. It built pregnancy help centers trying to reach women to help them at that moment in their lives. There were all sorts of education campaigns. The organic movement grew and grew, but silently in communities and towns and churches all over the country.

Kevin Becon snuck his penis in there. I heard there was a deleted shower scene between he and Matt Dillion, but the director thought it too "too gratuitous" (unlike everything else in this movie, right?)

Also, it's surprising that Neve Campbell took this role - as she seems a little too classy for something so trashy and exploitative. She does keep her clothes on, but still makes out with a topless Denise Richards in a pool and pours champaign on her breasts. Plus. the weird phony rape storyline.

The film holds no punches when depicting the Nazis or the Trials.

Terrific and eerie music by Ernest Gold.

Spencer Tracy gives the best performance of his career as Chief Judge Dan Haywood, the American.

Maximilian Schell is the passionate German lawyer, Hans Rolfe. Schell outperforms Tracy and rightfully deserved the Oscar.

Burt Lancaster plays the notorious Nazi leader defendant Dr. Ernst Janning.

Marlene Dietrich is riding high on her Witness for the Prosecution success.

Richard Widmark is solemn as the American prosecutor Col. Ted Lawson.

Judy Garland gives one of the best comebacks in film history. Her last great performance.

Montgomery Clift is great as a handicapped man.

The supporting cast includes sexy William Shatner, creepy Werner Klemperer, British thespian Ben Wright, and the reliable Edward Binns as an American Senator.

Greg's Favorite Macaroni & Cheese Recipe

This is an easy and delicious way to prepare macaroni & cheese. This custard-based method results in an incredibly silky sauce that is not grainy. Why evaporated milk? The evaporation and sterilization process stabilizes the milk, which in turn stabilizes the mac & cheese, resulting in a deliciously silky sauce.


[bold] Ingredients [/bold]

[bold] BREAD CRUMB TOPPING [/bold]

2 Tablespoons unsalted butter

1 cup fresh bread crumbs or panko

1 ounce sharp Wisconsin cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese, grated (about 1/4 cup)

[bold] CREAMY MAC & CHEESE [/bold]

2 large eggs

1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk

1/4 teaspoon hot red pepper sauce

2 teaspoons salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 teaspoon dry mustard, dissolved in 1 teaspoon water

1/2 pound of macaroni (I like using gemelli but you can use elbow or any other pasta you like)

4 Tablespoons unsalted butter

11 ounces sharp Wisconsin cheddar, American, or Monterey Jack cheese, grated (about 2 3/4 to 3 cups)

[bold] Procedure [/bold]

[bold] 1. For the bread crumb topping [/bold]: Heat butter in large sauté pan over medium heat until foam subsides. Add 1 cup of bread crumbs or panko; cook, tossing to coat with butter, until crumbs just begin to color. Season to taste with kosher salt; set aside. When cool, stir in cheese.

[bold] 2. For the macaroni & cheese [/bold]: Mix eggs, 1 cup evaporated milk (this is not the entire can), hot pepper sauce, 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper, and mustard mixture in small bowl and set aside.

3. Bring 2 quarts water to a boil in a saucepan or Dutch oven. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and macaroni; cook until almost tender but still a little firm to the bite. Drain and return to pan over low heat. Add the 4 Tablespoons butter and toss to melt.

4. Pour the egg mixture over the buttered macaroni, along with three-quarters of the cheese; stir until thoroughly combined and cheese starts to melt. Gradually add remaining evaporated milk and remaining cheese, stirring constantly, until mixture is hot and creamy, about 5 minutes.

5. Pour cooked macaroni & cheese into a 9-inch square baking dish (or a similarly sized ovenproof dish). Spread crumbs evenly over top. Place dish under a preheated broiler (the oven rack should be about 6 inches from the broiler). Broil until the crumbs turn a deep golden brown (1 to 2 minutes but keep a careful eye on this!). Remove from oven and let stand for about 5 minutes.

[bold] Note: [/bold] If you don't want to bother with the crumbs and the broiler, just follow the recipe but use 12 ounces of cheese (about 3 cups), rather than 11 ounces, and serve the hot and creamy macaroni and cheese from the saucepan. You can also make some buttered toasted crumbs and just sprinkle over each serving.

This recipe will serve 4 people as a main course or 6 to 8 people as a side dish.

Ultrawealthy Americans are flocking to get ‘golden visas’ in Europe amid political turmoil

It seems as if the chaos and general bleakness of life in the U.S. is just too much to deal with. The ongoing pandemic, the higher cost of living, increased political division, and a climate disaster have all fostered a sense of general malaise.

And now that the Supreme Court's decision to reverse Roe v. Wade has been finalized, more Americas may be googling other options.

The American Dream used to stand for a job with a loyal employer, homeownership (often accompanied by a white picket fence), and your own set of wheels. The pandemic has given Americans the Great Resignation, a housing market that won’t stop appreciating and a used-car and gas price crisis amid 40-year-high inflation.

Maybe the villas of Portugal or beaches of Greece would be more appealing—or at least warmer. If you're one of the ultra-wealthy, leaving your pool and hot tub behind for such a life seems to increasingly beckon.

As life in America becomes more stressful and expensive, U.S. citizens have been investing in a “Golden Visa,” a program in which purchasing a second home in a different country entitles buyers to a second passport or a pathway to citizenship.

Interest in investing in international property grew sixfold among U.S. clientele in 2019 to 2021, according to a new report titled “The Great American Exodus” by passporting firm Get Golden Visa, which predicts 2022 to be “its busiest year yet.” The report found that politics, travel restrictions, a higher cost of living, and the desire to work remotely abroad have sent the ultrawealthy clamoring for second passports that range anywhere from €280,000 to €500,000.

Get Golden Visa managing partner Murat Coskun tells Fortune he’s predicting a “golden visa frenzy” this year, with second passports becoming so popular that even the less wealthy will start to get their hands on them.

The requirements for a second passport depend on the program and country. Consider the increasingly popular hotspot of Portugal, which requires people looking for a second residency to invest in either properties, a specific type of fund, or a donation in exchange for a residence permit and, eventually, citizenship.

Coskun said many Americans don’t end up giving up their U.S. citizenship and view the program more as a Plan B.

“They have no intention of living here full-time,” he says. “But they want to have the optionality; they want to have some sort of global mobility.”

That sentiment ran strong across America after elections and other breaking political news elicited a chorus of “I’m moving to Canada” across Twitter. According to the Get Golden Visa report, social and political unrest was the top motivator for applicants, at 42%. Coskun says that Get Golden Visa saw a spike in the number of applicants from both political parties during the election.

Americans also wanted to avoid travel restrictions during lockdown, something they weren’t used to. “Normally, with an American passport, you pretty much can access most of the countries in the world, visa-free,” says Coskun. Inflation and remote work are sending the ultrawealthy packing

As travel restrictions ebb, the need for a more flexible visa has become harder to justify. But inflation and remote work have been keeping golden visas in business.

Just over a quarter of prospective applicants from the U.S. said in the report that inflation and higher tax rates were a major reason for their interest in Golden Visas. Coskun also points out that retirement is easier in other countries that have cheaper health insurance

Paying half a million euros to avoid an extra pricy banana might seem counterintuitive, but even rich people seem to have anxieties about the rising cost of living. While inflation is a global phenomenon, one can live slightly larger in Portugal than in New York.

A Room with A View (1985)

WOW. What a piece of cinema. I am already a huge fan of Merchant-Ivory productions, but this is definitely their crowning achievement.

I read the book about a month ago and fell madly in love with the story. Forster has always been on my list, but I am just now getting the chance to read his work. This is a near perfect adaptation.

Everything is absolutely perfect. From the opening aria "O mio babbino caro" sung by Kiri Te Kanawa to the beautiful costumes to the closing chamber music by the American composer, Richard Robbins.

Although Helena Bonham Carter is the leading lady of the picture, it is Maggie Smith's Cousin Charlotte that is the heart of the film. The supporting cast is superb; Denholm Elliott and Julian Sands play lower-class tourists, Daniel Day-Lewis is the perfect antiquated English snob, Simon Callow makes a thankless role humorous, Rupert Graves is a cute younger brother, and Judi Dench, as always, does more with a role than it is written.

David Lean's A Passage to India came out the prior year, yet when people think of a Forster movie, A Room with a View comes to mind. I have even met some people who think "India" is a Merchant-Ivory production!

No one does E.M. Forster adaptations like the gays.

Sailing the high seas with John Davidson, the superstar time forgot


It takes three flights to get to the airport at La Paz and then a 20-minute drive to reach the marina where John Davidson — the actor, singer, talk-show host, nightclub workhorse and all-around icon of American television’s three-channel glory days — is living on his boat.

I worried that he regretted allowing me to visit.

In January, days before I first planned to come, Davidson emailed because a storm threatened to shut down the harbor. As I tried to rebook my flights, he suggested that we just Zoom. “Wouldn’t this be a much simpler way, definitely less costly and save you all this trouble,” he wrote. After I had boarded Cantante (Spanish for “singer”), the 42-foot trawler he bought sight unseen last year, he came clean about the lingering concerns that had kept him up the previous night awaiting my arrival — that he wouldn’t be entertaining enough.

“You’re going to be stuck on a boat with me,” Davidson said. “What are we going to talk about?”

Seriously, man?

John Davidson is the superstar that time forgot. He starred in movies, sang on Broadway, headlined in Vegas, subbed more than 80 times for Johnny Carson on “The Tonight Show.” His dimpled smile and enviable mane of hair were inescapable through the 1970s and ’80s — just go to YouTube for the evidence. He’s duetting with Julie Andrews, straight-manning for George Carlin, battling through a talk-show chat with a drunk Ringo. He dated Karen Carpenter, harmonized with Mama Cass, hung out with Kenny Rogers, cut records on the same label as Janis Joplin and Simon & Garfunkel.

Imagine a Brad Pitt who could also sing, or a Jimmy Fallon who could act, or a Hugh Jackman with his own talk show, back when talk shows were cool. Jackman might be the best parallel, a ruggedly handsome multiplex star who remained at heart a song-and-dance man, craving nothing so much as a live audience.

That was John Davidson in the 1970s. Or could have been.

What is there not to talk about with John Davidson? His is the story of man both built for stardom and an awkward fit for his particular era, a wholesome multihyphenate who broke out in Disney musicals just in time for the advent of “Midnight Cowboy” and recorded smooth orchestral ballads while the girls were screaming for Led Zeppelin.

What were the 1970s really like? Davidson, the preacher’s kid from White Plains, N.Y., who got thrown into the fast lane, can tell us — and he does, in fact, three nights a week during the summer season, in the 44-seat club he opened last year in an old barn in Sandwich, N.H. An evening of songs and stories and nostalgia. He barely breaks even, but “he would do it for nothing,” says his longtime friend, comedian Jim Teter.

“He has to be singing,” Teter says. He once told Davidson: “You would follow a couple of guys into the men’s room with your guitar and say, ‘Hi, fellows! You want to hear some songs?’”

But the ultimate showbiz people-pleaser has another audience he is aiming to satisfy these days, at least during the offseason. It’s why he took stock of a looming birthday last year and explained to his second wife that after 38 years of marriage he would be decamping to a boat in Mexico for the winter, as a solo act.

“I said, f--- it,” Davidson recalled. “I’m 80, and I’m going to do what I want.”

Marvel’s new Disney+ series “Ms. Marvel” received praise from reviewers and fans, but some are blasting its diversity, calling it too “woke” and “cringe.” And critics say they know what's behind the criticism.

The series, released Wednesday, follows Kamala Khan, a 16-year-old Pakistani American girl from New Jersey who struggles to fit in at school and home until she’s imbued with superpowers by a bangle passed down from her grandmother.

Log Cabin Republicans Have This To Say

How does one become this delusional, and what will they do when marriage equality is overturned? They’re already calling out Biden for “fear-mongering”. They were just thrown out of their own party in Texas and homosexuality is dubbed an abnormal lifestyle in their party’s platform. Why don’t they just drop the bullshit and admit that they’ve fucked up supporting these people? If you want to be conservative on issues, fine. But call a spade a spade. Anyone with a brain knows what’s coming.

What’s so funny is that they tweeted that marriage equality is going no where and then in the next tweet say that if it is overturned, they will fight. You can’t have it both ways. They’ll probably end up moving the goalpost and say that gay marriage is still legal in X amount of states, so everything is good.

Has anyone else taken a look at their Twitter account? It’s mind-boggling.

Iranian Terrorist Attacks Gay Nightclub in Norway

An early morning shooting near a popular gay club in downtown Oslo that killed two people and seriously wounded at least 10 was being investigated as an act of terrorism, the police said on Saturday, as Norwegians grappled with a rare gun attack that shattered an expected Pride weekend celebration.

The gunman, who opened fire outside two nightclubs, was detained shortly after the shooting, the police said. Christian Hatlo, a lawyer for the police, told reporters that the man in custody was a 42-year-old Norwegian citizen who was originally from Iran and had a record of minor crimes.

Mr. Hatlo said that the authorities had charged him with murder, attempted murder and terrorism. He said they were investigating the shooting as a terrorist attack because of the number of crime scenes and the size of the death and injury tolls.

“He seems to have had the intention to create fear in the population,” Mr. Hatlo said.

Roe v Wade being overturned has me thinking that an old buddy of mine may have been more visceral than I believed

I used to chat with this gentleman (a white man born into old money on the Upper East Side) who used to tell me that this was going to happen within the next decade or so. He told me this around 2015 or 2016. He knew Politicians as well as many wealthy NYC socialites, and he said,

A. Racism is a lot less in your face here but it is here, as well as homophobia. Many of those rich white people on the Upper East Side consider themselves democrats/liberals but most of their logic is more Republican than they think. He said within the next decade we are going to see inflation and rent hikes, and people will think it’s not intentional but it is. He said since the 1970s, when white flight was prevalent in major cities the Government has been trying to find ways to “take back their cities” and push out low income, which are mostly POC. White people have the money in this country, and the mostly white government slowly has made sure to limit the increase of minimum wage while hiking prices to eventually be able to “take back the cities” and push out POC.

B. Women’s rights will be at risk. They want to overturn abortion rights as well as try to make it harder for women within certain careers. One thing he told me was most of those old white men have no respect for women and speak of them poorly behind their backs. Many believe the workplace was better when it was almost all men.

C. Gay rights. He predicted in 2015 that by the year 2030 gay rights would be back to the way they were in the past, aka illegal. He said Republicans would have gays vanish if they could and blame gays for everything that is wrong morally with the world, the way they blame blacks and Hispanics for all crime.

I always doubted this gentleman and I eventually stopped interacting with him because he would upset me at times because he was a man with resources and who claimed to know all of this but I felt he never did anything about it. Looking back, what could he have done? I was dumb. Also, I think he may have been more insightful than I believed.

I wonder what he’s up to now.

We actually met in person on accident and became buds and kept in touch. We then would speak daily about Politics, race relations, gender politics etc. one day I saw him on Grindr and messaged him saying “hey why are you in my area?” and we laughed, then Grindr sorta became our way of sending voice messages to one another instead of WhatsApp. Pretty interesting.

Below is a bit of a convo we had that I saved about segregation in NYC. No relation to Roe vs Wade, but just so you can hear what our convos were like.

Anti-Gay church minister charged w/ underage male sex - Part II

[quote] Appellate Court Overturns Former Youth Pastor's Disorderly Conduct Conviction

An Illinois appellate court has overturned a disorderly conduct conviction against 27-year-old Paxton Dale Singer, of Sugar Grove, on the grounds of double jeopardy. The former youth pastor at Harvest Bible Church in Aurora had been convicted in 2019 over alleged text messages that were sexual in nature sent to a teen parishioner in 2017. Singer had been sentenced to twelve months of court supervision.

Singer had requested a new trial on the grounds that his guilt was not proven beyond a reasonable doubt. The request was granted by a Kane County judge who said that they would like to see more evidence from prosecutors. Singer's attorneys argued that doing so would amount to double jeopardy for their client and requested that the case be dropped on those grounds. The court denied the defense's request and rescinded the order for a new trial saying that no evidentiary or procedural errors occurred during the first trial.

The Second District Appellate Court in Elgin ruled last week that the decision to hold a new trial on the basis of insufficient evidence amounted to an acquittal and that indeed a second trial on the same charge would violate Singer's rights.

In its ruling, the appellate court noted that there was sufficient evidence to convict Singer, but that the acquittal granted by the court when it ordered a new trial must stand.

Here Is a State-by-State Rundown of What Will Happen Now That SCOTUS Has Freed Lawmakers To Restrict Abortion

By repudiating Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that said women have a constitutional right to terminate a pregnancy, the Supreme Court has freed states to set their own abortion policies. But the impact of the new leeway allowed by the Court's decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization will vary widely across the country. While severe restrictions will be enacted or take effect in many states, abortion will remain legal in most.

Thirteen states have "trigger" bans that are designed to take effect after Roe is overturned. Some of those states, plus others, have enacted laws that were enjoined based on Roe and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, the 1992 decision that reaffirmed Roe's "central holding." Several states do not currently have bans but are expected to enact them in response to Dobbs, which overturned both of those precedents.

Some states never repealed pre-Roe bans. Politico notes that "court action will likely be necessary to determine whether states' pre-Roe abortion bans can take effect or enjoined laws restricting access to the procedure can be lifted, a process legal experts anticipate could take weeks to months."

Existing statutes range from bans like the Mississippi law upheld in Dobbs, which prohibits abortion after 15 weeks of gestation, to nearly complete prohibitions like the trigger laws. In between are "heartbeat" laws that prohibit abortion after fetal cardiac activity can be detected, which typically happens around six weeks into a pregnancy, when women may not even realize they are pregnant.

In terms of practical impact, the cutoff makes a huge difference. Even states that generally allow abortion often restrict it after "viability," the point at which a fetus can survive outside the womb. The dividing line for viability is generally placed around 24 weeks of gestation. In 2019, according to data collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), just 1 percent of abortions in the United States were performed at 21 weeks or later. Only 4 percent were performed after 15 weeks. But 57 percent were performed after six weeks, and some of the rest also would be covered by the "heartbeat" laws.

Most states are unlikely to ban abortion. In some, abortion rights are protected by statute, by judicial interpretations of state constitutions, or both. In others, there is not enough political support to enact new restrictions.

Here is a state-by-state rundown of what we can expect now that the Supreme Court has decided the Constitution does not guarantee a right to abortion after all. Red indicates the 22 states that are certain or likely to soon impose or start enforcing new restrictions on abortion, ranging from moderate to severe. Green indicates the 23 states where abortion will remain broadly legal. Blue indicates the five states where new restrictions are unlikely in the short term but are possible in the longer term, depending on electoral outcomes or judicial decisions

Oslo Pride Parade is officially canceled after homophobe shoots up gay bar, killing 2 and injuring 19

See, it’s not just the USA. Homophobes are starting to come out everywhere.

Oslo's annual Pride parade was canceled on Saturday following a deadly shooting at a gay bar that Norwegian police are investigating as a possible terrorist attack.

Two people were killed and eight others taken to hospital after the shooting near the London Pub, which describes itself on its website as "the largest gay and lesbian venue in Oslo." Police received multiple calls about the shooting at 1:14 a.m. local time, and arrived at the scene minutes later. They apprehended the male suspect three minutes after arrival, police said.

The suspect, charged with terrorism, is a Norwegian citizen originally from Iran, and was "known to the police," but has only received "minor convictions" up until now, prosecutor Christian Hatlo told reporters in Oslo Saturday.

Norway's domestic intelligence service said it was working to clarify whether more acts of violence may be planned after the shooting. The Norwegian Police Security Service (PST) announced in a tweet Saturday that it was "informed about the shooting in Oslo on Saturday."

"We are now contributing all the relevant information we have to the Oslo police district and are working to clarify whether more acts of violence may be planned. We do not currently have any indications of that," the PST said.

Hatlo said police had charged the suspect with "murder, attempted murder and terrorist acts."

He said the terrorism charge was justified on the basis of the number of injured and dead people, the number of crime scenes and an "overall assessment" indicating that the accused intended to "create serious fear in the population."

At the time of the press conference, police had attempted to question the suspect but had not yet been successful in doing so, Hatlo said. The suspect was taken to the police station, and police told CNN there were currently no other suspects.

As for the charges, Hatlo said the authorities will see "what the investigation shows."

The suspect was armed with two weapons during the shooting, police said. They did not confirm what weapons he used due to the pending investigation.

Here we go again blaming white men

A Facebook friend of mine posted a meme on Facebook blaming “white men” for trying to control “people of colors and women’s bodies.”

I think this would be a good time to point out that Clarence Thomas, a black man (who likes white pussy no less - how un-woke) and Amy Coney Barrett, a woman, voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, while Stephen G Breyer, a white man. voted to uphold it, and John G. Roberts, a white man, urged the justices to uphold it.

It’s time to push back against wokeness and accept the fact that evil does not always come in the form of a white male.

The Details on Madonna’s WILL AND GRACE Appearance

Madonna refused to wear the costumes provided for her when she taped an episode of Will & Grace back in 2003, according to executive producer Gary Janetti.

The Queen of Pop appeared on Season 5 of the hit show as part of the promotional campaign for her album American Life. The episode, which drew almost 18 million viewers, was titled “Dolls and Dolls.” In it, Madonna played Liz, Karen’s (Megan Mullally) messy roommate.

Speaking to the “Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef” podcast, Janetti recalls: “[She’s] like an executive secretary, the kind of woman who wears her sneakers on the subway and carries her shoes in her bag and goes to a happy hour after work and thinks she’s kind of like, you know, a big deal in her tiny office.”

“So she was supposed to wear, you know, Anne Klein II suits with sneakers and be the kind of woman you’d see on the subway. And Madonna as that is very funny … but Madonna didn’t want to wear any of those clothes.”

Madonna… being difficult… about her wardrobe?? We don’t believe it for a second!

Janetti goes on to say that the singer, who was “at the height of her fame” at the time, brought her own wardrobe and glam team to set.

The producer adds that he wasn’t sure if she had “a particularly good sense of humor” and so he ultimately concluded that asking her to wear her character’s pre-selected wardrobe “wasn’t a conversation that was going to happen.”

“So, she looked fabulous,” he says, “but as a result, it was about 50 percent less funny than it should have been.”

“We even had jokes we had to change because of what Karen said — maybe based on what she was wearing — [because it] didn’t make sense anymore,” Janetti continues. “I mean, she looked like Madonna. She looked like a rich, fabulous celebrity, which wasn’t what the character was.”

“But,” he adds, “she was game when she was on the show, and she was also funny.”

In 2017, while promoting the Will & Grace reboot, Mullally told Jimmy Kimmel that Madonna was easy to work with despite being a little, um, disinterested in her co-stars.

“Madonna was very cool,” she recalled. “I thought she was really nice and really present. She worked really hard and she wasn’t a prima donna.”

“But,” she added, “she didn’t necessarily know our real names in real life because why should she, who cares? Some of the cast were really offended, like, ‘She doesn’t even know my name!’ and I was like, ‘Who cares? Madonna’s doing our show! It doesn’t matter.’”

When asked by Kimmell whether Madonna would be like, “Hi Will, Hi Grace”, Mullally replied: “Yeah, kinda, yeah, yeah, yeah. But in a nice way. She doesn’t need to know our names, for crying out loud. She’s doing our show! Who cares?”

In 2006, Entertainment Weekly ranked Madonna’s guest spot as their number ten most memorable guest appearance on Will & Grace.

American IVF patients advised to move their frozen embryos if they can to safer terrain after Roe Versus Wade overturned

The implications for the potential parents of the one million frozen embryos in fertility clinics in the USA could be huge. Not moving your embryos to either a safer state or another country like Canada could be risky. The implications for fertility clinics are not clear but could include people facing sanctions if they don't implant one of their frozen embryos.

I can see the evolving field of fertility treatment largely decamping to Europe, Australia, Canada etc as the US volatility on abortion and fertility issues becomes too unpredictable to run that kind of business long term.

William & Kate Are Ditching London to be more like Harry & Meghan

Of course they will still be close enough to still be able to kiss Grandma’s ass.

Prince William and Kate Middleton are moving — but don’t worry, they’re not going as far as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle!

The royal couple is reportedly planning to pack up their London life and head 30 miles west to Berkshire county, where Queen Elizabeth II’s primary residence, Windsor Castle, is located. Hmm. So they’re cozying up to the Queen? That’s nice!

According to The Sunday Times, the decision was mostly out of a desire to give their kids Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4, a better lifestyle!

People confirmed on Monday that Prince George and Princess Charlotte will leave their school, Thomas’s Battersea, at the end of the current school year. They will then enroll in a school in the Windsor area, though a specific learning institution has yet to be announced.

It’s still unclear where the family plans to live, but many have reported that they will move into Adelaide Cottage on the Windsor estate. The Palace has yet to confirm that though. In the future, they might one day move into “the big house” — aka Windsor Castle — seeing as it is believed that Prince Charles doesn’t have a desire to spend as much time there as the Queen does now, The Sunday Times reported. Interesting!

The major move not only gets the family closer to Her Majesty, but they will also be closer to Kate’s family! She was raised in Bucklebury, where her parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, still live. Now they will be just a 40-minute car ride away.

Most importantly, it seems William and Kate would like to give their kids some more freedom to be, well, kids! A friend told the outlet:

“The reality is they are quite confined in what they can do in London. The kids can’t go into the park and kick a football with friends.”

That makes total sense!

Don’t be surprised if they decided to pick up and move again, either. Berkshire is not the couple’s final destination — instead, it is presumed that they’ll move to their country getaway Anmer Hall in Norfolk once the kids are older since that “is their happy place,” the friend added:

“Their plan is to be there for the next 10 to 15 years and then move to Anmer, which is so special to them.”

Tell us about a time you engaged in fisticuffs

I was stopped at a light in standstill traffic and this frau in the next lane tries nosing her car in front of me. I kept creeping up to block her. She starts honking her horn and waving. I shake my head without looking at her and that set her off. She lays on the horn and starts yelling out the window.

At this point, I’ve had it. I get out of my car and go around to her driver’s side window where she’s hanging her head out. I snatch the sunglasses off of her and throw them to the ground, screaming at her that she’s just messed with the wrong one. She starts cussing me and I told her to get out of the car. She rolls up the window and starts looking for a way to get out, but traffic is stopped.

I got out my pocket knife and start cutting her tires. She jumps out of the car and I immediately punch her in the face. At this point, a white knight jumps out of his car to come at me, but he stops when I point the knife at him.

The next thing I know, I’m being wrestled to the ground by what turned out to be two cops who came out of nowhere. So I got arrested and plead guilty to misdemeanor assault and criminal mischief. I managed to avoid a jail sentence, but had to pay a huge fine and got probation for two years.

Weird things you found in your dead relative’s house

A few years ago, a friend’s uncle died. I helped him go through his uncle’s house (uncle had no other family and lived alone) to get it ready for the estate sale.

I remember the uncle had a really great set of vintage silverware and a silver tea service that I would’ve loved to have had. Some great old period furniture, too.

The weird stuff was in the attic. Actually, it was just this one old trunk in the corner that looked like it hadn’t been touched in decades. Inside were a couple of old guns and a machete (my friend was shocked because he’d never known his uncle to even like guns) and something that looked like a Halloween costume. The creepiest part was an old wallet and some car keys. There was a driver’s license still in the wallet (it was from the ‘60s, so definitely old) that I assumed was the uncle’s (I never met the guy) but my friend was a little spooked and said that wasn’t his uncle. He didn’t know who it was. My friend suddenly said to put it all back in the trunk and we carried it outside to go to the junk people who were coming the next day.

I wondered later if the uncle had a male lover and that’s who the license belonged to. I brought it up a few times, but my friend said no. The last time I mentioned it, he snapped at me to stop bringing it up. He was kinda mean about it, actually, and a bit scary. Maybe I touched a nerve?

Anyway. What are some weird things you’ve found when going through a dead relative’s things? Evidence of a secret homosexual affair?

I am obsessed with Joey Miuccio’s beautiful full juicy tits 🥵🥵🥵

He’s a fitness guy who is part of a fitness app, and he sells workout clothing, meal deals, protein shakes for before and after workouts, protein bars, workout equipment etc.

His main job is he is a Pilot.

He’s so fucking cute. Love his very Italian features and dark skin. Sexy! But he has such beautiful pecs and nipples 🤤 I just wanna suckle on them.

But then again, I’m a huge fan of big juicy pecs and nice shaped large breasts on a woman. I guess I’m into big tits and nice nipples on both men and women 😂😂😂

I’m a big nipple guy though. His aren’t even massive but they’re great and perfect for his body frame. His nipples are amazing.

Drug developed by gene editing could cure AIDS

Israeli researchers have identified a new way to neutralise HIV and developed a one-time injection that could cure AIDS.

In what could be a ground-breaking development in medical science, a team of researchers has developed a new vaccine using gene editing that can cure HIV-AIDS.

The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) attacks the body’s immune system and, if not treated, can lead to Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). HIV was first discovered in a type of chimpanzee in Central Africa and is believed to have jumped to humans as far back as the late 1800s.

It is to be noted that at the moment there is no cure for HIV-AIDS and genetic treatment does not exist for the condition.


The team has demonstrated initial success in neutralising the virus with a single vaccine developed by engineering-type B white blood cells that activate the immune system to produce HIV-neutralizing antibodies. The research was led by a team from the School of Neurobiology, Biochemistry, and Biophysics at The George S. Wise Faculty of Life Sciences in Tel Aviv University.

The findings of the study have been published in the journal Nature, which details the antibodies as "safe, potent, and scalable, which may be applicable not only to infectious diseases but also in the treatment of non-communicable conditions, such as cancer and autoimmune disease."


The team claims to have developed an innovative treatment that may defeat the virus with a one-time injection, with the potential of bringing about tremendous improvement in the patients' condition.

B cells are a type of white blood cell responsible for generating antibodies against viruses, and bacteria and are formed in the bone marrow. When they mature, B cells move into the blood and lymphatic system and from there to the different body parts. Scientists have now been able to engineer these B cells inside the body with viral carriers derived from viruses that were also engineered.

When the engineered B cells encounter the virus, the virus stimulates and encourages them to divide. Researchers have exploited this division to combat it, and if the virus changes, the B cells will also change accordingly in order to combat it.

“Additionally, in this case, we have been able to accurately introduce the antibodies into a desired site in the B cell genome. All lab models that had been administered the treatment responded, and had high quantities of the desired antibody in their blood. We produced the antibody from the blood and made sure it was actually effective in neutralizing the HIV virus in the lab dish," Dr. Barzel explains.

The team used CRISPR, a technology based on a bacterial immune system, against viruses to genetically modify the virus and the bacteria used the CRISPR systems as a sort of molecular "search engine" to locate viral sequences and cut them in order to disable them.

Researchers expect that over the coming years they will be able to produce medication for AIDS, additional infectious diseases, and certain types of cancer caused by a virus.

Jack Mackenroth & Dolf Dietrich Are Back Together Again - Vowing To Give It Another Go

After charges and counter charges of drugs, sleaze, alleged assaults, etc (see link below from earlier this year)

Jack Mackenroth & Dolf Dietrich have decided to give their relationship another try. Of course we previously heard that Jack had admitted his Meth problem and vowed to get clean. SO maybe he did, and Dolf decided to take him back

But they are a couple once again (as they say on their respective Twitter accounts) and continuing do make money off of their videos having sex. Just minutes ago Dolf tweeted

"The LEGENDARY ass of @jackmackenroth is being pimped out by his Meathead Muscle Pig Boyfriend @DolfDietrich"

Jack Tweeted

"Omg. @DolfDietrich and I listened to Kylie Minogue for a total of 75 hours this year. Haha over 3 days!!

The Age of Innocence

Wow. I finished the novel in less than a week. What an amazing story. Edith Wharton was a woman who was ahead of her time, yet she wrote a brilliant drawing room love story set in Victorian era New York.

Every character is so complex. Newland Archer neglects his work, treats his wife poorly, had an affair with a married woman years before the novel starts, and falls in love with another woman. Yet we root for him. We understand his struggle and the passions underneath his stiff shirt.

May Welland is set up as the quintessential wife and mother. She is caring, kind, quiet, and damn good at archery. She is also boring, manipulative, and overbearing. I felt for her but also felt she was spoiled and needed a reality check.

Ellen Olenska went in and out of New York society like a hurricane. She was anticipated and left a path of destruction. Yet, when it was all over we understood that it was not necessarily her, but society. I always wondered how many men she got close to and completely ruined their lives.

As I finished the novel, I ordered the Blu Ray from the Criterion Collection. Martin Scorsese directs tour de force performances from Daniel Day-Lewis, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Wiona Ryder. They are all brilliant. The supporting cast is superb; Geraldine Chaplin, Sian Phillips, Marian Margolyes, Alec McCowen, Richard E. Grant, Norman Lloyd, Mary Beth Hurt, Stuart Wilson, Jonathan Pryce, Alexis Smith, Carolyn Farina, Robert Sean Leonard, and the legendary Michael Gough. Watching this film, I felt like every lead actor had read the novel and understood the material.

The cinematography was gorgeous, the music (Johann Strauss) is impeccable, and the set design and costumes are on point.

I have not even mention the incomparable narration of Joanne Woodward!!!!

What brilliant, intelligent, and artistic piece of literature and film. True art. 9.5/10

How Gen X Became the Trumpiest Generation

It’s a drowsy rainy Thursday at the Iowa State Capitol, and Iowa State Representative Cherielynn Westrich is speaking to a school group about how a bill becomes a law. The state Legislature is out of session, and only a handful of members are lazing about the chamber catching up on correspondence. Westrich, a petite cheery blonde, is just finishing up explaining how a lawmaker can summon a legislative page to their desk if they have a specific request to add to a bill. Her audience is a group of about two dozen middle school-aged kids seated on the floor in the back corner of the room.

Just then, another legislator, Steve Holt, interrupts with a smirk. It’s a school group from his district but he had left Westrich babysitting them for a few minutes. “You all know a fun fact about Rep. Westrich?” he asks. “She was in a famous rock band when she was young; you can find the videos on YouTube.”

Westrich then tries to explain her past to the school group of children too young to remember Kanye West at the VMAs, let alone the mid-90s alternative rock scene. “Well so, you guys know who Madonna is? Madonna signed my band to her record label, and we toured all around the world and got to play all the big coliseums like Madison Square Garden, and then we had videos — you guys know about MTV? — we had two of them, and you can still find them online from a long time ago back in the 1900s.”

The children laugh politely, and then it is time for them to go back to their school bus. Both their tour of the Iowa State Capitol and brief excursion into ‘90s nostalgia were over.

But, for Westrich, neither was. The first term Iowa Republican was a Zelig-like figure in ‘90s pop culture. She worked for Flea, played with Spike Jonze in her first band and turned down the opportunity to appear on “Jackass.” But she’s perhaps best known for playing keyboard with the Rentals, a ‘90s band that scored a single hit with the song “Friends of P.” while touring the world with performers like Blur and Alanis Morissette.

Now, 20 years later, after getting inspired to enter politics by former President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, Westrich is a solidly conservative state representative from blue-collar southeast Iowa who is pro-gun and anti-vaccine mandate. It may be an unusual trajectory for someone who played moog synthesizer in a popular alternative rock band, but, given the politics of people in her generation, it actually might not be unusual at all.

[quote]Now is a moment where many people will be erasing the vast experiences that trans people have while seeking abortion care. The deliberate decision to remove trans people results in a incomplete story about what this SCOTUS decision criminalizing abortion means.

Women’s rights are being destroyed by both political parties

Can we please stop pretending that only the right is trying is attempting to roll back women’s rights?

The Left is also erasing women’s freedoms by trying to convince the world that mentally unstable men who take estrogen are women. Now, the Left now can’t even define what a woman is, for fear of offending trans loons.

In just two days women’s rights have been severely damaged. Yesterday, Biden expanded Title IX which makes a case to allow biological men on estrogen to participate in women’s sports. Then today, the Supreme Court repeals Roe vs. Wade.

Women are being attacked by both Democrats and Republicans. I feel awfully for women. We need to stand up and fight for women’s rights.

Unlike the stupid entitled zombies who attacked the Capitol.

"The daughter of Taiwanese immigrants, Michelle Wu became the first woman, first person of color, first mother and first millennial to run the city of Boston.

Wu’s personal experiences have made her deeply aware of gaps in civic services. At 22, Wu put her consultancy job in Boston on hold and moved to Illinois to take care of her mother, who was diagnosed with schizophrenia, and her two younger sisters. Barely out of college herself, she became head of the family, moving her loved ones to Boston and enrolling her sibling in the public school system."

When Republicans have control, abortion will be illegal. If the state flips back, then it will be legal again. Back and forth with no consistency.

Hamlet (1996)

This is THE Hamlet. I wish more directors would be brave enough to take a full text of Shakespeare's play and adapt it as a film.

Every shot is absolutely fabulous to view. The production design is top notch. Branagh moved the setting to late 1800's Denmark and it works very well. Placido Domingo sings the end credits to Patrick Doyle's beautiful score.

Kenneth Branagh leads an international cast of all-stars. Derek Jacobi is a marvelous Claudius. He is better than Branagh! He himself was the defining Hamlet of the 1970's.

The supporting cast is superb too: Julie Christie makes her comeback as nurturing Gertrude, Nicholas Farrell is a great Horatio, Michael Maloney as sexy Laertes, Richard Briers as Polonius is hilariously sinister, Rufus Sewell is savage god as Fortinbras, Brian Blessed is a stoic ghost, but a very young Kate Winslet as Ophelia steals the show.

The cameos are where it gets tricky. Charlton Heston and Rosemary Harris as the Player King and Queen are great! I never knew Heston was such a thespian! (Definitely better here than in 1970's Julius Caesar).

John Mills, Judi Dench, Richard Attenborough, and Sir JOHN GIELGUD all make blink-and-you-miss-it appearances. Timothy Spall, Recee Dinsdale, Gerard Depardieu, Simon Russell Beale, Ken Dodd, and Billy Crystal make fun of their small parts.

Jack Lemmon is the weakest link in the cast. However, if Lemmon is the weakest link of the movie, then it is practically perfect!

Florida team hauls in 18-foot, 215-pound Burmese python

NAPLES, Fla. (AP) — A team of biologists recently hauled in the heaviest Burmese python ever captured in Florida, officials said.

The female python weighed in at 215 pounds (98 kilograms), was nearly 18 feet long (5 meters) and had 122 developing eggs, the Conservancy of Southwest Florida said in a news release.

The team used radio transmitters transplanted in male “scout" snakes to study python movements, breeding behaviors and habitat use, said Ian Bartoszek, wildlife biologist and environmental science project manager for the conservancy's program.

“How do you find the needle in the haystack? You could use a magnet, and in a similar way our male scout snakes are attracted to the biggest females around,” Bartoszek said.

The team used a scout snake named Dionysus — or Dion for short — in an area of the western Everglades.

“We knew he was there for a reason, and the team found him with the largest female we have seen to date.”

Biologist Ian Easterling and intern Kyle Findley helped capture the female snake and haul it through the woods to the field truck.

A necropsy also found hoof cores in the snake's digest system, meaning that an adult white-tailed deer was its last meal.

National Geographic documented the discovery, highlighting the continued impact of the invasive pythons, which are known for rapid reproduction and depletion of surrounding native wildlife.

Bartoszek said removal of female pythons plays a critical role in disrupting the breeding cycle.

“This is the wildlife issue of our time for southern Florida," he said.

Since the conservancy’s python program began in 2013, they've removed over 1,000 pythons from approximately 100 square miles (25,900 hectares) in southwest Florida.

Over that stretch, necropsies have found dozens of white-tailed deer inside Burmese pythons. Data researchers at the University of Florida have documented 24 species of mammals, 47 species of birds and 2 reptile species from pythons' stomachs.

Prior to the recent discovery, the largest female removed through the conservancy’s program weighed 185 pounds (84 kilograms) and was the heaviest python captured at the time in Florida, officials said.

The state’s python removal program runs for two weeks in August. Participants compete for prizes, including $2,500 for capturing the most pythons.

Last year's challenge involved more than 600 people from 25 states.

US woman left traumatised after Malta hospital refuses life-saving abortion

This story was in the news this week. A glimpse of what we can look forward to now in this country.


Doctors have denied an American woman on holiday in Malta a potentially life-saving abortion, despite saying her baby had a “zero chance” of survival after she was admitted to hospital with severe bleeding in her 16th week of pregnancy.

Despite an “extreme risk” of haemorrhage and infection, doctors at the Mater Dei hospital in Msida told Andrea Prudente that they would not perform a termination because of the country’s total ban on abortion.

Prudente and her husband are seeking a medical transfer from Malta to the UK, which the couple say is their only option due to the risk to her life. They claim medical staff were uncooperative in their attempts to leave and in sharing medical records with the couple’s insurance company.

“I just want to get out of here alive,” Prudente told the Guardian from her hospital room in Malta’s capital, Valletta. “I couldn’t in my wildest dreams have thought up a nightmare like this.”

CEO: Paramount+ won’t censor classic programs ‘with different sensibilities’

It's about time people stop listening to these annoying Twitter SJWs with nothing better to do than cry about their feelings about history. It happened, let's not rewrite it.

They remind me of those loser kids in school who always had marshmallow fluff around their mouths. Unbearable!

Paramount will not censor content that may be offensive in historic films and television shows on its streaming service, according to The Guardian.

In an interview with the news outlet, Paramount CEO Bob Bakish said Paramount+, a subscription-based service soon available to U.K. households, will leave classic works as is.

“By definition, you have some things that were made in a different time and reflect different sensibilities,” he told The Guardian.

Bakish added, “I don’t believe in censoring art that was made historically, that’s probably a mistake. It’s all on demand – you don’t have to watch anything you don’t want to.”

Bakish’s comments come as Paramount+, which has already been active in the U.S., is set to debut in the U.K. on Wednesday.

Other streaming services have also opted not to remove works with outdated content, including Disney+, which instead added content advisories to classic films depicting racist stereotypes. Among the films featuring these disclaimers are “Dumbo,” “The Aristocats” and “Peter Pan.”

Finally Enough Love

I like Madonna's music a lot for what it is.

It IS impressive that she's had fifty number-one dance songs in the U.S., and it's not surprising she'd cash in by releasing a remix album of all 50.

But do we need it?

Do we want it?

And how much money does one person need? What in the world does she do with it all?

I know we American people are supposed to worship money above all else and to value people according to their cash-equivalent worths, but she's now estimated to be worth $1.2 million, and this new album is just some printed materials and various remixers paid to switch up some things in her old songs to try to make them sound contemporary so she can chart again—and rake in more cash?

I find wealth at this level obscenely greedy and selfish, and projects like this to be lazy ways to throw out a dragnet and drag in bundles of money. Am I being too harsh?

I grew up in the 80s, when Material Girl and Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous and Beverly Hills Teens and NYC real-estate tycoon Trump were the centers of pop culture and now all of it makes me feel nauseated.

Amy Schumer Getting Backlash For Shading Tiffany Haddish

Amy Schumer, who appeared on the latest episode of HBO’s The Shop with LeBron James, Maverick Carter, Paul Rivera, Fat Joe and Don Lemon, posed some questions about Tiffany Haddish that had viewers scratching their heads.

Lemon was leading a powerful discussion on Black vulnerability in the media and how necessary it is when the comedian changed topics, referencing a comment made earlier about “aspirational” entertainers. She acknowledge derailing the conversation but then proceeded, saying that women entertainers adhere to different rules and have to sacrifice their self-confidence for success.

“This is totally off-topic,” she said. “But I think it’s the opposite for women and female comics.”

She continued and shared that she grew up listening to Lil’ Kim and appreciated her boldness. The comedian, however, added that she thinks Lil’ Kim downplays a part of herself publicly for the sake of her career.

Schumer said she and other female comedians like Chelsea Handler and Moms Mabley have to make jokes about being “a drunk” or a “fat whore” in order to break the glass ceiling.

Lemon took back control of the conversation, countering Schumer’s perspective. The CNN host said that there are women in the industry who are “breaking the mold and not doing that.” He went on to name Haddish as an example of someone who has seen a meteoric rise without putting herself down. Proving his point, Lemon referenced Haddish clapping back at reporter Lauren Zima who referred to her Oscars gown as a “costume.”

“This is not an acting gig,” she told Zima at the time. “This is my life. This what fame look like. That what success look like.”

Schumer challenged Lemon’s point, questioning whether Haddish standing up for herself was helping or hurting her career.

“But how is that going for her?” she asked. “I’m really asking this. I’m really asking this.”

“I love Tiff,” Lemon said, as Schumer jumped in, again.

“I love Tiff, too, she’s incredible. She’s had a huge meteoric rise. I’m wondering if people are going to get pissed at her,” Schumer said.

A clip of the exchange has since circulated on social media, and fans are not holding back, Atlanta Black Star reports.

“I really honestly started to NOT like her from the moment I seen her on The Kardashians,” one Instagram user wrote.

“It’s giving hater,” another added.

“THE CAUDACITY!!! Is Tiff worried about you? NO!” a Haddish fan commented.

Many questioned why she was on the panel in the first place.

“We don’t even like Amy – why is she here?” someone asked.

One user referenced the backlash she received following her comments about still being “triggered and traumatized” following Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars.

“Why she on this [platform]?! Aint she traumatized by Will??” someone asked.

Caitlyn Jenner to Lia Thomas: "GO FUCK YOURSELF!"

Former Olympian Caitlyn Jenner voiced her support for the international swimming federation’s decision that transgender athletes cannot compete in women’s events if they didn’t transition before 12 years old.

Jenner, who is transgender, has been outspoken in her belief that it’s not fair for transgender women to take part in competitive women’s sports.

“It worked!” Jenner tweeted Sunday after the federation’s ruling came down. “I took a lot of heat — but what’s fair is fair! If you go through male puberty you should not be able to take medals away from females. Period.”

The swimming governing body, FINA, announced its new “gender inclusion policy” on Sunday following a 71.5% vote.

The decision comes about three months after Lia Thomas, a swimmer for the University of Pennsylvania, became the first transgender woman to win a NCAA Division I in any sport.

Thomas, who was part of the university’s men’s team before transitioning, started swimming for Penn’s women’s team during the 2021-22 season. She underwent hormone therapy before joining the women’s team.

“We have to protect the rights of our athletes to compete, but we also have to protect competitive fairness at our events, especially the women’s category at FINA competitions,” said FINA President Husain Al-Musallam.

Jenner, 72, won a gold medal in the men’s decathlon at the 1976 Olympic Games. She came out as a transgender woman in 2015.

FINA’s ruling also received support from former Olympic swimmer Sharron Davies.

“I can’t tell you how proud I am of my sport @fina & @fina_president for doing the science, asking the athletes/coaches and standing up for fair sport for females,” the English athlete tweeted Sunday. “Swimming will always welcome everyone no matter how you identify but fairness is the cornerstone of sport.”

U.S. soccer star Megan Rapinoe, meanwhile, has voiced her support for trans inclusion, saying in a recent interview with Time that transgender women aren’t “taking everyone’s scholarships” or “winning every title.”

“I would also encourage everyone out there who is afraid someone’s going to have an unfair advantage over their kid to really take a step back and think what are we actually talking about here,” Rapinoe said in an interview published Sunday morning.

“We’re talking about people’s lives. I’m sorry, your kid’s high school volleyball team just isn’t that important. It’s not more important than any one kid’s life.”

Closeted Gay Actor Sam Heughan - Part 16

As usual, the previous thread has been paywalled, so let's have a recap.

Since Sam's rumored longtime boyfriend, Luke Neal, reappeared at the most recent Outlander premiere, we've seen staged pap walks, fake 'gfs' innuendos, constant name dropping in tumblr inboxes to see what sticks (7 names just in the last week!!!🤣), witch hunts, the usual suspects policing the fandom and trying to stop the gay talk...etc....etc

We've seen Sam in 3 PR stunts with 3 different 'beards' in three different cities in only a few months 🤣. And according to some of those hired beards, all is 'meatless turf' and GAY unicorns with Sam 🦄 🌈And of course, those young bimbos are really dating other men, not Sam.

If Luke Neal were a woman (we've seen Sam and him on double dates with Cait and her husband Tony, as his black tie premiere plus one, as his only guest/SO to panels & media parties and travels around the world with him as a twosome - in addition to a bit of light SM sexting), Sam's homophobic stans would be sure that they were dating.

But Luke -an actor and writer- had to close all his SM - and abruptly, disappeared.

Meanwhile, Sam's homophobic mommies keep doing Sam's publicist dirty PR job: trying to link Sam to a woman, ANY woman. Sam doesn't even need to beard/date/meet those women anymore.

And then, those stans still call DL 'a cesspool of lies' when they are the real tinhatters 24/7 making up PR crap to make him look 'straight'....🙄

Health officials warn of 'large' outbreak of serious bacterial meningitis outbreak in Florida

Health officials are warning Florida residents about a "large" outbreak of a potentially fatal bacterial illness known as meningococcal disease that's primarily affecting gay and bisexual men.

So far this year, there have been 21 confirmed cases of meningococcal disease as of Monday, according to Florida Department of Health data. That's higher than the state's five-year average of cases of the disease.

"[Florida Department of Health] epidemiologists are investigating each case as well as contacting people with potential or direct exposure to known cases to provide them with information and treatment options," the department said in a statement.

Most of the cases are in central Florida, and more than half are in people between the ages of 20 and 39, according to state health department data.

The "large, ongoing" outbreak is primarily among men who have sex with men, including those living with HIV, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The CDC recently issued an alert on the outbreak, urging gay and bisexual men and men who have sex with men who live in Florida or who plan to travel to the state to get vaccinated against the disease. The outbreak is primarily among residents, though it has affected some people who have traveled to Florida, the CDC said.

There also have been cases of meningococcal disease reported among Florida college students in recent months, though "there is no evidence to suggest that the cases among college students are related to the larger outbreak," the CDC said.

Meningococcal disease is a rare but serious disease that is primarily spread by close or direct contact, such as kissing. Symptoms include fever, headache, stiff neck, nausea, vomiting, light sensitivity, confusion and rash.

Meningococcal disease can commonly lead to two potentially fatal infections: meningitis — when the lining of the brain and spinal cord become infected — and bloodstream infection.

Those who contract the disease could suffer from hearing loss, brain damage, kidney damage, loss of limbs or nervous system problems.

"Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect against meningococcal disease," the Florida Department of Health said.

Florida health officials are encouraging men who have sex with men, people living with HIV, immunocompromised individuals and college students to get vaccinated against the disease amid the outbreak. Anyone in those groups who more than five years ago received their MenACWY vaccine — one of two types of meningococcal vaccines available in the U.S. — is also encouraged to get vaccinated.

People planning to travel to Florida should get vaccinated at least two weeks before traveling, the CDC advised.

College students may choose to get a MenB vaccine, which is available for those between the ages of 16 and 23, to protect against meningococcal disease, the CDC said.

Anyone who sought a pardon from Trump is admitting to wrongdoing. Therefore they must be investigated.

Presidential pardons must be only for humanitarian reasons for people who have already served time.

They must not be for political expediency or reasons, nor to escape justice for illegal actions - otherwise this would mean the POTUS is upholding illegal acts and perpetrating injustice. He or she would not be upholding the oath of office.

Women's soccer is having a moment

There has been an explosion of interest in women's soccer over the last couple of years. Particularly in European domestic leagues. This weekend's champions league match between PSG and Lyon is sold out with 47k a sold. The next match in Wolfsburg is breaking their club record with over 20k in attendance. Barcelona women's team has had two back to back home matches with over 91K in the stadium. Sweden's national team recently broke records with their attendance and all of England's matches in the upcoming euros are sold out including 87K at Wembley for the final. In the US a recent preseason NWSL match had more viewers than the regular season MLS match. The English women's league is consistently having high viewership. And this interest should only continue to rise with the upcoming euros and World Cup.

Iconic Hong Kong jumbo floating restaurant CAPSIZE is COMPLETE!

Well, this doesn't sound suspicious at all. Is HK's lockdown as severe as Bejing's?

HONG KONG — Hong Kong's iconic Jumbo Floating Restaurant has capsized in the South China Sea less than a week after it was towed away from the city, its parent company said Monday.

The restaurant encountered "adverse conditions" on Saturday as it was passing the Xisha Islands, also known as the Paracel Islands, in the South China Sea, and water entered the vessel and it began to tip, according to Aberdeen Restaurant Enterprises Ltd.

The company said no one was injured, but that efforts to save the vessel failed and it capsized on Sunday.

"As the water depth at the scene is over 1,000 meters, (it makes it) extremely difficult to carry out salvage works," it said in a statement.

It said the company "is very saddened by this accident."

The Jumbo Floating Restaurant, almost 80 meters (260 feet) in length, had been a landmark in Hong Kong for over four decades, serving Cantonese cuisine to over 3 million guests including Queen Elizabeth II and Tom Cruise.

It closed in 2020 due to the pandemic and laid off all its staff. Aberdeen Restaurant Enterprises said the restaurant became a financial burden to its shareholders, with millions of Hong Kong dollars spent on its inspection and maintenance even though it was not in operation.

The restaurant was towed away last Tuesday. The company said it planned to move it to a lower-cost site where maintenance could be carried out.

It said that prior to its departure, the vessel had been thoroughly inspected by marine engineers and hoardings were installed, and all relevant approvals were obtained.

"The company is now getting further details of the accident from the towing company," the statement said.

Lightyear Same-Sex Kiss... LOOK AWAY!!

Here's the ENTIRETY of the same-sex kiss in Pixar's "Lightyear" that's causing so many conservatives to freak out.

I know most people on DL have sadly already been turned gay but just think about how many unsuspecting people this less-than-1-second peck will turn gay. It's horrible, I know!

Hawaii expands gender-affirming care for trans residents

In 2016, Hawaii took a seemingly small but significant step forward for its trans residents: The state passed a law barring insurance companies from discriminating against transgender and nonbinary Hawaii residents. But in the years since the anti-discrimination law, trans residents, advocates and lawmakers found that it hadn't done enough - people were still being denied coverage for care that could help them affirm their gender identity.

On Thursday, Hawaii's Democratic Gov. David Ige signed a bill into law that clarifies certain treatments insurers had deemed "cosmetic" - such as laser hair removal, voice therapy and facial feminization surgery - should be covered as long as a medical provider deems it medically necessary. The legislation, H.B. 2405, would also require insurers to give patients clear information about which gender transition services are covered.

"The bill is key to protecting people from discrimination in accessing gender-affirming treatment," Ige said at a signing ceremony, Honolulu Civil Beat reported. The governor also signed two other bills expanding LGBTQ protections in state: one that bars people from being excluded from juries because of their gender identity and expression, and another establishing a commission that will examine the status of Hawaii's LBGTQ residents.

The health-care bill, which was crafted with input from health-care providers, trans advocates and insurers, passed with overwhelming support in both chambers of Hawaii's legislature. The law went into effect immediately on Thursday.

The issue highlights how difficult it is for transgender and nonbinary people to access medically necessary and potentially lifesaving gender-affirming health care, even in areas that embrace and support them, said Democratic Hawaii state Rep. Aaron Ling Johanson, a champion of the bill and chair of the state's Consumer Protection and Commerce Committee.

Johanson said the policy change had been a "passion project" for him.

"One of the things that we came to find was that . . . 'cosmetic' treatments are a very critical part of accomplishing gender-affirming care for the patient," Johanson said. But "clashes" persisted between trans and nonbinary Hawaii residents and insurance companies, he said, because some insurers decided the care was not medically necessary, even if a patient's medical provider had recommended it. (Hawaii Medical Service Association, the state's largest insurer, declined to comment.)

"It's just heartbreaking when you hear from a lot of these folks who have higher rates of depression or thoughts of suicide because they're just stuck in a system that doesn't help them," Johanson added.

Fan Liang, medical director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Transgender Health, said that for trans and nonbinary patients, there tends to be more coverage for "top" and "bottom" surgeries (chest and genital surgeries), but not for procedures such as facial or voice surgeries. That's a big oversight, Liang said, considering how important these characteristics are in everyday life.

"When you engage with somebody, the first thing that they appreciate, really, is your face and facial expressions," Liang said, adding that many of her patients have told her stories of being misgendered over the phone. Some worry their voice is "a telltale giveaway" of their transition.

Generally, Liang said, gender-affirming care, which includes psychosocial and educational resources as well as medical interventions, helps trans and nonbinary people live more freely, whether that's relieving their gender dysphoria or reducing the likelihood they'll be singled out or discriminated against.

"It really is a medical necessity," Liang said. "These patients are living with an incongruence that permeates all aspects of their lives."

In passing its new gender-affirming care bill, Hawaii has joined a handful of states, including Washington and Colorado, that have tried to expand access to transition care.
