Looks like the Netflix Sandman is moving ahead. Tom Sturridge? - I'd have preferred Colin Morgan, who was also auditioned. The Asian Cain and Abel are ok and I can probably live with Lucienne not Lucien, though a female Lucifer seems pushing it.

My partner and I broke up 2 months ago

I’m still sort of moping around.

We were together for 11 years. I thought he would be the one to grow old with. Truthfully, the relationship was emotionally over a few years back. We only got the courage to break up after many discussions.

My friends keep telling me that I need to “get back in the game.” But do I really? I don’t want to start looking for “Mr Right” again. That whole dating process just sucks. I think I’m over random sex too.

I’m 45, 10 lbs overweight (thanks, Covid), mildly handsome—I don’t want to have to turn on the sparkling personality again to overcome the physical deficits. It’s exhausting.

Have any of you broken up with long term partners and continued your life just fine without chasing sex and hoping to find another partner?

Democratic rep. says 'off the record' that Biden is 'not running again'

Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.), who has represented parts of New York City since 1993, said in an interview with the New York Times editorial board published Saturday that President Biden is "not running again" in 2024.

During the exchange that preceded the question about Biden, the 76-year-old congresswoman seemed to become confused. "Should there be term limits for members of Congress?" editorial board member Eleanor Randolph asked Maloney.

"No," Maloney said.

"Should there be an age limit for members of Congress?" Randolph asked next.

"Members of Congress have a term limit. It's called an election every two years," Maloney answered, apparently responding to the previous question.

The exchange about Biden began when Randolph asked Maloney whether Biden should run for a second term. "Off the record, he's not running again," Maloney said. She did not specify how she knew Biden would not seek a second term in 2024.

"Not off the record. On the record," journalist Jyoti Thottam insisted. According to the Poynter Institute for Media Studies, journalistic ethics stipulate that a source cannot unilaterally go off the record. The reporter must agree.

"On the record? No, he should not run again," Maloney said in response to Thottam's prompting.

On Saturday, the Times editorial board endorsed Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) in his primary contest against Maloney. Nadler has served in Congress since 1992 and was pitted against Maloney due to redistricting.

I was sexually harassed by a bunch of teen boys

Well, sort of. I was sitting at the Marienplatz in Munich, and a little way off, at the other side of the subway entrance, were 5 boys in their later teens, I would guess 16-18. 2 were White, the other 3 Arab/black. I found them quite attractive, so I looked over to them a few times, just brief glances, nothing excessive. But I noticed one of them looking in my direction and grinning. I thought it was probably just a coincidence, but didn't pay them any more attention.

At least 10 minutes passed. I had by now relocated to a different corner of the square, maybe 30 meters away (where I had a nice view of the city hall and the church). Suddenly someone comes up to me and says "Excuse me". I look up, and it's one of the boys - one of the white ones, with a 90s style center parting. Then he says, in a very polite tone, "Are you interested in a gang-bang?" He enunciates the last word very clearly, dwelling on it. I immediately blush furiously, like a character in a manga. Meanwhile the other 4 boys have walked up to me as well, grinning.

It was like they had looked right into my head and seen my dirty thoughts. I'm deeply embarrassed, and feel a little intimidated, but also - even though I'm being mocked - quite turned on.

Smiling, I ask him "What makes you think this?" Then I look from one to the other and say "I do find you attractive, but I believe the offer isn't quite serious". I think my sober and straightforward reaction (furious blushing aside) throws them off a bit. One of them confirms they're not serious, while another says "HE's being serious" (a way of calling the other boy gay). They start leaving, with the boy who asked me (plus another one) lingering last, being kind of apologetic, then saying goodbye with a kind of bro-version of "Take care".

I think I handled a potentially humiliating situation well enough, but maybe I should have offered them beers and blowjobs instead.

Inconsiderate Things That Made You Question a Friendship

What are some inconsiderate things, major or minor, that your friends have done to really make you stop and consider of the relationship should continue?

I have a friend that has on two occasions left me high and dry at events he’s invited me too.

First event was a pop up bar. He said be there at 6:30( (little early) for drinks, he’ll be there with 2-3 acquaintances he’s introduced me to before. Lovely guys but just a friend of a friend with ion form my POV. I’m alway late but decided to be on time since it’s a personal invite. Took an uber, looked cute, still running 10min behind. Get there and the bar is dead, with no sign of my friend or his friends. I text my friend and he tells me, at 6:40 that he’s not feeling well and can’t make it. He also said his friends are having dinner first and he’s sorry he forgot to tell me. They’ll be there in half an hour. I’m out of the money for the Uber and have to finish a stupid “specialty” drink so I wait. Couldn’t even make it though half an hour of conversation with his friends because they and I all had nothing of note to talk about. So I respectfully left. There was literally silence for 5 minutes at one point. It was dreadful.

Second issue, same guy. He invited me to a friend’s home for a movie night. I’ve only met them once but my core friends were out of town and I figured I could use a change of pace. I agree to attend. My friend says to arrive at 7:30 pm. It’s been a few months so I let the first slight pass. I arrive early, grab a light dinner, bring alcohol, wonder the neighborhood to kill time, it’s a beautiful night. My friend text me that he’ll be there at 8. I ask why. He says he’s just always late. I tell him I’m arrive as your plus one and don’t know them so what should I do? I guess He tells me to just show up. I refuse and wait ti 5 min till 8 to arrive because that’s just awkward to me.

Now I’m not in elementary school, I can handle new people and places but all of this instances make it crystal clear that my friend is too inconsiderate. And I feel like a fool for putting in so much effort. It sounds crazy but his lack of consideration annoyed me enough to reconsider if I want to really be associate with this person.

What are your experiences?

I think at that time, the big problem that I was seeing was, “Where’s the apprenticeship?”

Rave review in the NYTimes for Mary Rodgers's memoir SHY

Let’s start with a full disclosure: I’m a sucker for Broadway — one of those theater fans who will see five different productions of the same show, who genuflect before cast albums from the ’50s, who inhale theater gossip as if it really mattered. I’m also a sucker for books about Broadway, books as different from one another as Moss Hart’s “Act One,” William Goldman’s “The Season” and Jack Viertel’s “The Secret Life of the American Musical.” But I’ve never read one more entertaining (and more revealing) than Mary Rodgers’s “Shy.” Her voice careens between intimate, sardonic, confessional, comic. The book is pure pleasure — except when it’s jaw-droppingly shocking.

Written in collaboration with the New York Times theater critic Jesse Green, who completed it after Rodgers’s death at 83 in 2014, “Shy” relates the life story of a successful songwriter-scriptwriter-television producer-children’s book writer. And also the mother of six, the wife of two, an occasional adulterer, a credulous participant in an earnest trial marriage to Stephen Sondheim (!) — and the daughter of two of the most vividly (if scarily) rendered parents I’ve ever encountered.

“Daddy” is the first word in the book, and it provokes the first of Green’s many illuminating footnotes, which enrich the pages of “Shy” like butter on a steak. This one grasps Richard Rodgers in four words: “composer, womanizer, alcoholic, genius.” The composer part we all know, and if your tastes run in the direction of “Oklahoma!,” “South Pacific,” “Carousel,” et many al., the genius as well. As for the other two elements, the womanizing was unstoppable, racing through chorus girls, Eva Gabor, apparently Diahann Carroll and definitely the original Tuptim in “The King and I” — according to Mary, “the whitest Burmese slave princess ever.” The drinking was equally prodigious. Dick (as he was known, and will be known here to keep the various Rodgerses straight) hid vodka bottles in toilet tanks — a clever ploy for an aging man whose bladder wasn’t likely as robust as it once had been. Lunches were lubricated with a 50-50 concoction of Dubonnet and gin. Evenings heralded a continuous parade of Scotch-and-sodas. A depressive who once spent three months in a psychiatric hospital, he was also remote and inscrutable, with a capacity for cruelty. Mary writes, “He hated having his time wasted with intangible things like emotions.”

Compared with Dorothy Rodgers, though, Dick (whom Mary eventually forgives and understands) could have been one of the Care Bears. But “Mummy” (given Dorothy’s desiccated rigidity, it’s a word that can be read as both a name and a noun) was vastly self-centered and brutally critical. Mary had so much to work with you understand why one chapter is called “I Dismember Mama.” She was a Demerol addict, a melodramatic hypochondriac, a neat freak (and, only somewhat incidentally, the inventor of the Johnny Mop). “Mummy’s idea of a daughter,” Mary writes, “was a chambermaid crossed with a lapdog; Daddy’s, Clara Schumann as a chorus girl.” In 1964 Dorothy published “My Favorite Things,” a high-end homemaker’s guide that told readers, as summarized by Green, “how to decorate their apartments and serve aspic.” Conveniently, he adds, “her marriage was just as cold and gelatinous.”

Oregon is the most beautiful state

Seriously ! The place is lush green with thick forests and crystal clear blue water lakes and streams running across them while snow capped cascade range surrounds them. Some of the scenery is unreal.

You probably saw many lakes where water is deep blue but have you seen a river like Mckenzie river ? Have you seen how blue its water is (look at the video below) ? Have you seen how beautiful Rogue river is (It got a mention in "Mystery of Love" song)?

Mt Hood national forest is breathtaking. So is Pacific coastline. Of course there's Crater lake too but I think Oregon has a million things more beautiful than that.

And Washington state comes state, IMO. I'd also rank West Montana up there with Oregon too.

I have been to almost every state except some North Eastern ones like Maine and New Hampshire but nothing compares to Oregon and Western Montana.

I don't exactly like the regions which are desert like. I mean I like them only for taking pictures and drives once in a while but I don't feel really connected to them. So that rules out a lot of places like Utah, Arizona and Southern California.

Mindy Kaling: ‘I didn't know I was so unattractive until I was the star of my own show’

Mindy Kaling’s life has come full circle.

The groundbreaking writer, actor and producer, 43, is opening up about how she still deals with grief following the death of her mother and how parenting two kids on her own has given her a new perspective on work-life balance.

While speaking to Marie Claire on a range of topics — motherhood, mental health, her successful career — for its "Wellness Issue," Kaling discussed the experience of losing her mother to pancreatic cancer in 2012, and recalled trying to mask the emotional turmoil by “working 14, 16, hours a day.”

“I can only describe it as just anguish for two years,” she said of that time. It ultimately became too much to bear on her own, which is why she decided to seek the help of a therapist — though, admittedly, it required her to unlearn cultural biases from her South Asian upbringing.

“If someone you knew or someone in your family or extended family was seeing a therapist or seeing a psychologist or going on medication or anything like that, it was seen as a real problem, a real sadness [or] tragedy for a family,” she explained. “That's just the way that I was raised — [like] the other Indian people around me… [Families] try to deal with it through closed doors and certainly not by asking someone outside of your family or outside of the community for help with that.”

“I don't want my kids to grow up that way. And I don't wanna be that way for myself,” she said of breaking the cycle. “Ultimately, it's about efficiency. I think you can get things done more if you're able to talk to the right people about the things going on in your life. I remember thinking, This is extremely helpful, but this would have even been helpful when I was younger, when I had issues.”

“Life is so hard,” she added. “And I don't think you should just have to depend on friends and family to get you through those things.”

Therapy, she says, has also helped her understand where her priorities should lie, as a single mother of two children: Katherine, 4, and Spencer, 1.

“I think in my twenties I was only focused on, Okay, I don't want to get fired. I want to be successful, and I was only thinking about myself,” she said. “In no way was I thinking about things that are the most important to me now, which is my health, holding the door open behind me for other people… I kind of lived a way more selfish existence, which is also boring… [Now] I'm surrounded by so many more people. My immediate family, obviously, with my children, but also this community of young women on my show.”

When reflecting on her choice to have kids on her own in her late-thirties, the Never Have I Ever producer said that it was one of the smartest — and most mature — decisions she’s made in her life.

“I waited until I had the means and that made all the difference,” she explained of motherhood. “The choice to have a child — by yourself, on your own terms — it was the best part of my life… It's the thing that I hope women feel confident doing by themselves.”

“I wish every 19-year-old girl would come home from college and that the gift — instead of buying them jewelry or a vacation or whatever — is that their parents would take them to freeze their eggs,” she later advised. “They could do that once and have all these eggs for them, for their futures… to focus in your twenties and thirties on your career, and yes, love, but to know that when you're emotionally ready, and, if you don't have a partner, you can still have children.”

The showrunner’s passion to empower women in her writing — especially Indian women — is evident in her list of projects, which also includes HBO’s The Sex Lives of College Girls. Being able to do that, she explains, is a blessing.

Did Monty Clift visit gay brothels in Chicago?

I found this tidbit in the book The Boys of Fairy Town by Jim Elledge:

"As in other parts of Chicago, Bronzeville also had its share of bordellos that catered to queer men. According to Samuel Steward, a postal employee named Treville Holmes owned a large house on Fiftieth Street that served as a male bordello. Rumor had it that its clients included actor Montgomery Clift, playwright Thornton Wilder, and novelists James Purdy and Wendell Wilcox. Similar houses dotted Bronzeville and welcomed men all over Chicago."

Distraught Bill Maher Says Mar-a-Lago Raid Is ‘Saving’ Trump’s Political Future: ‘His Fortune Was Finally Falling!’

While many might not view an FBI raid of one’s property as entirely good news, Bill Maher is declaring Donald Trump as the “luckiest man in the world” after the FBI searched his Mar-a-Lago property.

On HBO’s Real Time on Friday, Maher took his usual digs at Trump — even jokingly bringing out some fake items recovered at Mar-a-Lago, including a “pee tape” — but he questioned whether the former president knew he was in possession of classified materials.

“I just think he was like, ‘They’re mine! I live here! I put it in those boxes! I get to take my boxes!'” the comedian said.

Maher acknowledged Attorney General Merrick Garland likely wouldn’t have signed off on the search if it were not serious, but he lamented the fact that this raid allows Trump to play the “victim” and likely saves him politically.

“His fortune was finally falling. The Big Lie was finally losing momentum. [Ron] DeSantis was beating him in the polls — you know who hates this more than anybody? DeSantis,” Maher said.

Trump, he added at one point, must have “sold his soul to devil” because he is the “luckiest man in the world.” Now, Maher argued, Trump has become a martyr.

“I had this in the bag, and now I gotta run against President Martyr,” Maher joked about DeSantis’ reaction to the news of the raid. “And this is saving Trump politically because now, of course, all the Republicans — what do they do?”

Fox Nation host Piers Morgan argued that President Joe Biden also benefits from the raid, if it does indeed better set up Trump as his likeliest opponent in 2024.

“If you’re Joe Biden, who would you rather face — Donald Trump who has all the baggage, who has the Jan. 6 investigation ranging a number of legal actions, all this stuff now… or would you rather face a much younger, more dynamic DeSantis who hasn’t had the baggage?” Morgan said.

Limb Lengthening Surgery is Becoming More Popular: He Was 5'7". After Surgery, He’ll Be 5'10".

As a man of taller than average height I had no idea such a procedure existed outside of science fiction films like Gattaca.

Yes, it’s a Buzzfeed News article. But there’s this tidbit:

[quote] In this elaborate procedure, a doctor breaks both femurs and inserts a titanium rod that slowly expands inside the patient’s body, making them permanently taller.

[quote] Scott first heard about the procedure when he was in high school. “When I realized what was really holding me back was the obstacle of money, I was like, ‘Oh, it’s just a game. If I can get $75,000, then I’m done feeling like this.’ The goal gave him clarity. “I was not waking up and crying every day in my mask, walking around the neighborhood. Instead, it became ‘OK, I just have to get on my grind and figure out how to get the money.’” So Scott, who is bi, got to work and, in February 2021, started an OnlyFans page. Within a few months on the platform, he zeroed in on a niche: financial domination, a form of humiliation kink where clients pay him to degrade them and take their money. By January 2022, by supplementing his OnlyFans earnings with some of his savings and a small loan, he had enough to pay for the procedure.

Did the sexual terms "top" and "bottom" originate in the gay male community or elsewhere?

Like, were they maybe BDSM terms or general sexual position terms or something like that first, or did it start as a gay thing? I was just curious, because I was listening to a podcast today where the lesbian women and trans men on it kept referring to themselves as tops or bottoms (like, incessantly, to be honest), and I've heard this elsewhere too, and it seemed unusual, because I always associate it with the act of anal penetration between men, but I wondered if I had it wrong all this time.

Also, these hosts complain about "cis gay males" a lot, and I thought it might be kinda amusing if it turns out they did that but also co-opted our terms, hehe.

And the 1% keep 1%-ing. This time, it's Silicon Valley "Royalty"

Last week, the star tech investor Marc Andreessen was revealed by The Atlantic to be against a proposal to bring new housing to the posh Bay Area town where he lives—a position at odds with his more general call in a famous essay for America to build new things again—including more housing in Northern California.

Andreesson’s far from alone in not wanting changes to his backyard, however. Many other Silicon Valley executives who also call Atherton, Calif., their home are fighting hard alongside him to keep the richest town in America the way it is.

Those executives include Rachel Whetstone, chief communications officer at Netflix; Anthony Noto, CEO of fintech company SoFi; Andrew Wilson, CEO of video game company Electronic Arts; Nikesh Arora, CEO of cybertech company Palo Alto Networks; former Apple executive Ron Johnson (better known as the man who invented the modern Apple Store and Genius Bar); and former Google executive Omid Kordtani.

These are just some of the prominent Atherton residents who have publicly voiced their opposition to several proposed multi-family housing projects in the coming years, according to reporting by The New York Times, which cited their public letters to the town of Atherton. Those projects represent just 58 individual housing units.

Like all Bay Area municipalities, Atherton must put together a proposal every eight years to demonstrate how it plans to build enough housing to keep up with growth, as mandated by the Association of Bay Area Governments’ (ABAG) Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) program.

Per RHNA’s most recent analysis, Atherton needs to build 348 new housing units over the next eight-year cycle. The town’s planning department released a draft of its plan to meet that quota in June and asked residents to comment. The final plan is due on January 1.

The 58 proposed units causing distress among residents are part of a proposal called “multi-family overlay zones.”

“Because the multi-family overlay zone is a new concept for the town, the City Council has been conservative in the identification of parcels that might provide future opportunities for development,” reads the proposal. The conservative approach wasn't enough to keep residents happy.

Atherton has never had multi-family housing, which is often credited as a means of improving both racial and economic diversity. In nearby Berkeley, residents recently voted to eliminate single-family zoning altogether and the city council unanimously denounced the racist history of the zoning practice. Berkeley was also the first U.S. city to adopt single-family zoning, all the way back in 1916.

These types of zoning often get entangled in a related debate between the so-called NIMBYs and YIMBYs, which stand for "not in my backyard" and, naturally "yes in my backyard." The former term has been in use since the 1980s, and as housing crises have worsened, younger (and poorer) generations have become increasingly YIMBY.

Atherton has held the title of the most expensive zip code in the U.S. for five consecutive years and topped Bloomberg’s Richest Places annual index for four years, until 2020. Based on the public letters they submitted to the city’s planning department, residents are afraid that the housing proposal would alter their town’s exclusive atmosphere.

“I am writing this letter to communicate our IMMENSE objection to the creation of multifamily overlay zones in Atherton,” wrote Andreessen and his wife Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen in an email. “Please IMMEDIATELY REMOVE all multifamily overlay zoning projects from the Housing Element which will be submitted to the state in July. They will MASSIVELY decrease our home values, the quality of life of ourselves and our neighbors and IMMENSELY increase the noise pollution and traffic.”

Brad Pitt in 1991, Montana.

Photographer George Holz was told of “an assignment from People magazine with a relatively young, unknown actor who had just had a small part in 'Thelma and Louise’ and whose name was starting to get buzz. His name was Brad Pitt, and why would he be interested? Brad was playing the lead in a movie adaptation of one of my favorite books, Norman Maclean’s 'A River Runs Through It.' It was the bible of fly fishing, and Robert Redford was the director.”

About the meeting, George said Brad “was there with his parents and hound dog, Deacon—no entourage at all. Nobody recognized him yet. He came out into the river, chewing tobacco, just in his khakis and an inside-out t-shirt. I liked the way it looked, so I didn’t have the heart to tell him it was inside out. The water wasn’t that warm, but it didn’t seem to phase him.”

Not long after the photo shoot Brad Pitt’s performance in the smash hit ‘Thelma and Louise’ would make him a household name worldwide and one of the most recognizable faces on the planet.

I personally love these photos of young, pre-famous Pitt.

Zendaya says HBO moved the premiere date of Euphoria season 2 up, resulting in a rushed ending

If you wondered why the last 2/3 episodes of Euphoria season 2 feel rushed, it’s because they were.

Zendaya says that halfway through shooting the series HBO moved their premiere date up (it was originally going to come out summer 2022 but they pushed it up to January), resulting in them having to rush to get the show done.

Wonder why the writing was overall weaker in season 2, well, Sam Levinson was writing the scenes and scripts the day before shooting the scenes.

The music was being written and produced 2 weeks before the episode which would feature that music would air.

Add onto the fact that supposedly the set is just all around hellish to be on, it sounds like a headache of a job.

But they got it done, and still earned 16 Emmy nominations.

I will say, this is still Sam Levinson’s fault. It took them 10 months to film the 8 episodes they did because he took his time with everything, thinking they had over a year to shoot. Just because you were initially given over a year shouldn’t mean you take your time with everything, to the point you were writing scenes to be shot the day prior.

Maude Apatow said they spent a whole week just shooting the night party scenes for the premiere episode. Not even the full episode. Just the night party scenes.

Perhaps their most overlooked hit, "Dare Me" combines a layered sound with a memorable melody to make a song that still holds up four decades later. The music video was certainly distinctive, too.

DL has plenty of love for Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, and even Pat Benatar, but surely The Pointer Sisters were every bit as hot in their day.

The song has a bit of accidental fame through beloved DJ Casey Kasem. He had a famous outburst of profanity on tape, cussing up a storm about a "dead dog dedication" only moments after coming off a replay of "Dare Me." He thought the song was too up-tempo to lead into a sad story about a little kid's dead pet.

Hallmark Channel explains Candace Cameron Bure and Danica McKellar departure to GAC Family

Hallmark is confidently looking ahead at its future without Candace Cameron Bure, Danica McKellar and others who left for GAC Family.

Best known for starring in Hallmark's Aurora Teagarden Mysteries franchise and annual Christmas movies, Candace exited the network in April. She appeared to follow in the footsteps of her co-star Danica who departed in October 2021. Fellow Hallmark leads like Jessica Lowndes, Trevor Donovan and Jen Lilley have also left for GAC throughout the past year. But according to Hallmark executives, the company isn’t sweating over it.

During a Television Critics Association press conference on Wednesday, Hallmark executive Lisa Hamilton Daly gave insight about their roster changing.

“We’ve kept a lot of our talent under options, save for Christmas movies. We’re looking for new talent all the time,” she said at the event, according to Variety. “I think there’s a lot of talent out there that we’ve worked with in the past that GAC is now working with.”

Lisa continued: “I think that we also are constantly trying to evolve the talent pool that we’re working with. We have, I think, retained almost everybody that we’re really excited to have. So that’s where we are.”

Hallmark President and CEO Wonya Lucas emphasized that the channel’s talent is also special because of their friendships, which remain intact after recent departures.

“Our talent, they know each other. They have a great relationship and that’s the secret sauce we have as Hallmark,” she said. “That continues today. We have existing talent that’s been with us a long time, and we have a new talent that we’re bringing in as well. And they all feel part of this Hallmark Channel love and so that that will be consistent; that is consistent in the past; that’s consistent today.”

Both Candace and Danica are set to star in and be executive producers for GAC Family and GAC Living content. Apart from acting, the Full House cast member will also help oversee and curate programming, plus create year-round seasonal TV shows and films.

That said, Danica signed a contract through 2023, which means she could return to Hallmark. But Candace seems to be all in with no end date in her involvement with GAC and no future appearances planned in the Aurora Teagarden Mysteries franchise, per Deadline.

Elana Dykewomon, Author Who Explored Lesbian Lives, Dies at 72

Elana Dykewomon, a gregarious, cerebral author, poet and activist who spent decades exploring her identity as both a lesbian and a Jew while working to foster communities of “chosen families” at a far remove from the patriarchy among her fellow lesbians, died on Aug. 7 at her home in Oakland, Calif. She was 72.

The cause was complications of esophageal cancer, her brother Daniel Nachman said.

Ms. Dykewomon never achieved widespread commercial success, but her three novels found an ardent following among lesbian readers. She also published five collections of poetry and short stories and contributed to many lesbian-themed publications.

For seven years, starting in 1987, she was the editor of Sinister Wisdom, a lesbian literary journal. As an activist, she was an organizer of the San Francisco Dyke March.

Ms. Dykewomon was in hospice at her home with friends, preparing to watch a live-streamed performance of her first play, “How to Let Your Lover Die,” when she died, 20 minutes before the performance began. The play is a rumination on love and loss that she wrote following the death of Susan Levinkind, her wife and her partner of many decades, from Lewy body dementia in 2016.

The play capped a five-decade career that started in 1974 with Ms. Dykewomon’s “Riverfinger Women,” a ribald lesbian coming-of-age novel that in 1999 was named to an Associated Press list of 100 Greatest Gay Novels. The book was initially “written for a straight publishing house that was putting out a new line of pornography for bored housewives” but was rejected, Ms. Dykewomon said in a 2004 interview.

When ultimately published, “Riverfinger Women” “was the first book that was advertised in The New York Times that was identified as a lesbian book,” Ms. Dykewomon added. “It was important at the time to publish things for lesbians, so lesbians would know that lesbians were out there who loved them and cared about them.” (cont.)

Alec Baldwin really fucked up.

I've come to that conclusion after watching Yellowstone over the weekend.

It made me wonder what Kevin Costner thinks of what happened on the set of "Rust."

Costner and Yellowstone use a plethora of guns and rifles in every episode. That show has been on since 2018, and they haven't had one accident.

Supernatural is another show I watch, that uses guns and weapons of all sorts. That show was on the air for 15 years, and not one accident.

Then you have Alec Baldwin's movie, and from the moment filming starts - there were problems. Leading up to the fatality.

It just shows that Alec and his team were completely lax about gun safety.

Of course I wasn't on set, but the proof is right there in what happened to Ms. Hutchins.

‘They/Them’- Meet Kevin Bacon’s Gay Conversion Horror Film

Now this is an original concept.

A new horror film about the terrors of conversion therapy is coming to Peacock. “They/Them,” a horror film produced by venerable production studio Blumhouse and starring Kevin Bacon, will be hitting the streamer Aug. 5.

Bacon stars in the film as Owen Whistler, the director of a conversion therapy camp named Whistler Camp, which attempts to “turn” LGBTQ+ teenagers straight and cisgender. Set over a week-long session at the camp, the film focuses on the various campers, led by trans and nonbinary Jordan (Theo Germaine), as they undergo psychological torment from the camp’s programming. When an unidentified killer begins claiming victims, the kids must team up to protect each other, both from the killer and from the camp staff.

Anna Chlumsky and Carrie Preston join Bacon in the film as Camp Whistler staff members. Quei Tann, Austin Crute, Monique Kim, Anna Lore, Cooper Koch and Darwin del Fabro portray Jordan’s friends and fellow campers. The film will serve as the directorial debut of John Logan, best known for his Oscar-nominated scripts for “Gladiator,” “The Aviator” and “Hugo.”

“They/Them has been germinating within me my whole life,” Logan said in a statement. “I’ve loved horror movies as long as I can remember, I think because monsters represent ‘the other’ and as gay kid I felt a powerful sense of kinship with those characters who were different, outlawed, or forbidden. I wanted to make a movie that celebrates queerness, with characters that I never saw when I was growing up. When people walk away from the movie, I hope they’re going to remember the incredible love that these kids have for each other and how that love needs to be protected and celebrated.”

Logan will also executive produce the film, along with Bacon, Scott Turner Schofield, Howie Young and Jon Romano. Jason Blum and Michael Aguilar produce for Blumhouse.

A mom’s campaign to ban library books divided a Texas town — and her own family

Weston Brown had given up challenging his mother’s anti-LGBTQ beliefs. But that was before she started coming after library books.

GRANBURY, Texas — Weston Brown was scrolling through Twitter last month when he came across a video that made his chest tighten. It showed a woman at a school board meeting in North Texas, calling on district leaders to ask for forgiveness.

“Repentance is the word that’s on my heart,” she said near the start of the video.

For months, the woman in the clip had been demanding that the Granbury Independent School District ban from its libraries dozens of books that contained descriptions of sex or LGBTQ themes — books that she believed could be damaging to the hearts and minds of students. Unsatisfied after a district committee that she served on voted to remove only a handful of titles, the woman filed a police report in May accusing school employees of providing pornography to children, triggering a criminal investigation by Hood County.

Now, in the video that Weston found online, she was telling the school board that a local Christian pastor, rather than librarians, should decide which books should be allowed on public school shelves. “He would never steer you wrong,” she said.

The clip ended with the woman striding away from the lectern, and the audience showering her with applause.

Weston, 28, said his heart was racing as he watched and rewatched the video — and not only because he opposes censorship. He’d instantly recognized the speaker.

It was his mother, Monica Brown.

As expected, DJT's MAGATS are calling for "Civil War" after FBI Raid

Predictions of imminent civil war and calls for violence surged early this week on social media platforms such as Truth Social — a network started by former President Donald Trump — after the FBI’s court-approved search of his Florida home Monday.

The search, which resulted in the seizure of classified documents, according to a copy of the warrant obtained Friday by The New York Times, set off an immediate outburst of aggressive and threatening language, akin to the public rhetoric that festered in the days leading up to the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol.

Truth Social users posted that the United States was born “through an insurrection followed by several years of bloody violence” and that the country would “become a communist state just as long as we don’t pick up arms and fight back!!” There was talk that “the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants,” a phrase from a letter by Thomas Jefferson, and that “sometimes clearing out dangerous vermin requires a modicum of violence, unfortunately.”

“No more a nice guy,” one user wrote. “We are at war. Promise you it ain’t gonna be civil,” another wrote. “Lock and Load,” wrote a third.

An account bearing the name of Ricky Shiffer, the man who was killed in Ohio by police Thursday, ending a standoff that officials said started after he tried to breach the FBI’s Cincinnati office, had posted messages on Truth Social recommending that “patriots” go to Florida and kill federal agents. On Thursday, the same account also appeared to confess to an attack on the FBI.

In a series of recent posts, the account had railed against law enforcement and issued a “call to arms,” saying that for two years, “they have been conditioning us to accept tyranny.” When someone asked whether he was proposing terrorism, the account responded: “I am proposing war.” The Times could not immediately confirm whether the Truth Social account belonged to Shiffer, 42, of Columbus.

Truth Social’s community guidelines note that its “preference is that the removal of users or user-provided content be kept to the absolute minimum” but say that it will take action in cases in which the platform is being “used as a tool for crime or any other unlawful acts.” On a list of reasons to report problematic content, Truth Social includes “content that depicts violence or threat of violence.”

The sentiments on Trump’s social media network extended to other platforms as well. One Proud Boys Telegram channel, used by hundreds of members of the militant group, posted in the hours after the search that “civil war is imminent.” On Twitter, there was a tenfold increase in tweets mentioning “civil war” in the 24 hours after the raid, according to Dataminr, a tool that analyzes Twitter data.

But later in the week, a different narrative gained traction, propelled without evidence by other prominent Truth Social users: that calls for violence were posts planted by federal law enforcement officials or Democratic operatives to frame right-wing patriots as insurrectionists and extremists. The point, the conspiracy theory goes, is to give the Biden administration cover to strip Trump supporters of guns or to set up a pretext for martial law.

Jack Posobiec, a far-right commentator, wrote on Truth Social on Thursday that “ANYONE POSTING ABOUT BEING VIOLENT RIGHT NOW IS A FED.” News site “Conservative” recommended that people “assume anyone advocating ‘civil war’ or violence of any kind is a plant hoping you will help support the left’s narrative.”

Lara Logan, another right-wing commentator, on Friday posted a video of an anti-FBI sign twisting in the air to show “Trump 2024 MAGA” on the other side, writing that “they have been trying to incite a civil war for some time.”

In the comments to her post, someone wrote: “Remember to take the FBI out.”

Norway euthanizes famous walrus Freya who became attraction in the Oslo Fjord

The walrus, nicknamed Freya, rose to fame after clambering on to boats to sunbathe - sometimes sinking them. People refused warnings not to get too close to the 1,300lb (600kg) animal, putting her and themselves at risk. On one occasion, police blocked off a bathing area after the walrus chased a woman into the water, local media say.

On Sunday, the director general of fisheries, Frank Bakke-Jensen, said the decision to put the animal down had been based "on an overall assessment of the continued threat to human safety". "Through on-site observations the past week it was made clear that the public has disregarded the current recommendation to keep a clear distance to the walrus. Therefore, the Directorate has concluded, the possibility for potential harm to people was high and animal welfare was not being maintained," Mr Bakke-Jensen said in a statement.

He added that other options had been considered, including moving Freya out of the fjord, but they had been discarded out of concern for the welfare of the walrus.

The operation to euthanise her had been carried out "in a humane fashion", with the body taken for further examination by vets.

The Scandinavians are so unapologetic about everything now.

A 33-year-old who worked at Starbucks for 13 years got fired over a month-old violation

Sam Amato has spent nearly his entire working life at Starbucks.

Over 13 years, he’s served countless customers, learned details of their lives, and even “watched their kids grow up,” the former shift supervisor said. When a wave of labor activity spread through Starbucks locations across the country, he got involved as a lead organizer at the store he typically works at in Amherst, a suburb of Buffalo, New York, which became one of the first in the country to unionize.

On Aug. 5, the 33-year-old had just clocked in for his shift at a different Starbucks in the town of Tonawanda when the store manager pulled Amato outside for a conversation and fired him for a month-old violation connected to closing the store early, a decision that he said left him “blindsighted.”

“I mean, it’s been 13 years. It’s how I get my paycheck. It’s how I get my insurance. It’s how I make a living,” Amato told Fortune. “To have that pulled from under you…it was a devastating moment.”

But when he left the store that day, he didn’t leave alone. All six employees working in the store with him at the time walked out in a show of support. Several Starbucks Workers United union members and staff from other locations in the area joined them in what quickly became a major viral TikTok video with over 21 million views.

The caption on the video reads: “When your entire store walks out after management unjustly fires your co-worker for being a union leader.”

Starbucks denies that was the cause of Amato’s firing and said it enforces standards consistently for all employees. The labor movement’s viral moment

The union drive at Starbucks stores nationwide grew out of a historic vote last December. Workers at a store near Buffalo voted to form the first U.S. union in the chain’s 50-year history. As 186 other locations have also unionized, the coffee giant has faced accusations of retaliating against and intimidating involved employees, which it has denied.

In June, the National Labor Relations Board filed a petition with the U.S. District Court in Buffalo accusing Starbucks of employing what the agency called an “expansive array of illegal tactics.”

Starbucks denied the allegations. “As we have said previously, we believe these claims are false and will be prepared to defend our case,” it told media outlets at the time.

The group walkout in Tonawanda that went viral last week is the most exposure that a union action at Starbucks has received so far, according to Casey Moore, the 25-year-old barista who took the video. Moore works at a different store near Buffalo, and participated in the Tonawanda walkout as an organizer. She also helps run the union’s TikTok account, and shared three videos of the walkout that have together clocked over 30 million views on TikTok.

She posted the most viral one on TikTok while traveling to South Carolina, where another store union effort is underway.

“This one completely blew up,” Moore said. “I put my phone on airplane mode, and then I opened it up, and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh!’”

The barista said she believes Starbucks’ reputation for holding liberal values is why the video caught the public's attention.

“People care because this is a company that says that they're progressive,” Moore said. “They say that they're a progressive company that cares about their workers, and I think people are kind of shocked.” The scene at Starbucks in Tonawanda

Amato and Starbucks Workers United believe he was fired for his union organizing.

He said he was “very active” with labor activity in July, filing an ethics complaint against the manager who later fired him, and helping to lead a one-day strike of his Starbucks store. Amato said he continued his outspokenness in discussing Starbucks’ “inadequate health insurance” in a filmed interview with More Perfect Union, a progressive media outlet, last month.

Was Salman Rushdie stupid to have published "The Satanic Verses" in the first place?

I'm going to get in trouble even for asking this, but I've been thinking about this question.

And first of all, let me be clear: he ABSOLUTELY did not deserve in any way what has happened to him these last 30+ years, especially this last week. No one has any right anywhere to enforce their religious prohibitions on other people, especially those who do not believe in their faith (and as he has said many times, he was an atheist when he wrote the book).

I'm wondering if it was just inevitable he would have been the victim of an assassination attempt someday after writing that novel, given how fanatical Muslims can be during the decades beforehand. Everyone in the West knew this given the hostage crisis in Iran, the terrorist bombings in Israel, Lebanon and Europe, the hijacking of the Achille Lauro, etc. He has admitted he was being a smarty-pants (which is the way he used to think of himself) when he wrote it.

I was friends with this guy but it just got to the point where he was constantly taking jabs at me. In the week building up to the final straw, he was attacking me because I have an iPhone instead of an Android, and was calling me a sheep. He was attacking me for traveling, saying the traveling is stupid. He was attacking me for having a dog, because dogs are a waste of money that should go to helping people instead.

The guy had a rough childhood and has some mental health problems, including depression. I probably shouldn’t have ghosted him like that but I just couldn’t fucking take it anymore.

This thread is for us to share what WE think happened. Not posting tidbits and speculation from other sources.

I believe he was routinely trading classified documents for personal gain. Maybe he was funneling it through Jared or his hotels, but I think he did this from day one.

The particular documents he took back home I believe are because people would pay him, foreigners most likely, to the view the documents in person and take pictures rather that try ti send them electronically.

They paid a fee and were allowed to peruse the documents on site at maralago.

I believe that the FBI will prove this. He was selling state secrets in exchange for cash.

A Frau New World

The year: 2037. The place: USA. If you are born cis male into the middle class, every precaution is taken to make sure that you’re never exposed to negative emotions or adult materials until you’re 30. Everyday you must smile at all times to feed the emotional needs of your birthing person. The world now looks and functions like Disneyland.

All men, aka semen producers, take pills at the onset of puberty to obstruct their sexual desires and stop any semen production. Sex is evil and should never happen. Only men deemed gentle enough to reproduce are moved to a semen harvesting facility where they stop their medications and produce the needed genetic material. Once the semen is harvested, a birthing person is matched to the donor via an algorithm that ensures gentleness. The chosen semen producer will be castrated after the birth of the necessary number of emotional supply vehicles for the birthing person. The semen producer will serve as the lifelong assistant to enact all the birthing person’s whims, such as setting up petting zoos at birthday parties, bringing the birthing person a glass of Chardonnay to wash down her antidepressants, and to make whimsical craft projects go off without a hitch.

There is an icky side to this world, a necessary evil, a group living in the distance, never to be seen, but referred to as ‘The Fornicators’. These lowly humans are needed to do manual labor, silently enforce the rules, and keep the infrastructure together. They live in trailer parks outside the major cities and engage in all types of debauchery. Long ago, the semen producers and birthing persons became incapable of manual labor, but did not lose the ability to control the Fornicators with passive-aggression and their mental strength. The goal is to live for over 100 years. Over 100 years of smiling, eating vegan hot dogs, play musical chairs, watching cartoons, being gentle at all times, never even killing a bug, never experiencing carnal pleasure, and most importantly never disagreeing with a birthing person. Sounds like a paradise, right?

Eleven dead in mass shooting in Montenegro, state prosecutor says

CETINJE, Montenegro (Reuters) -Eleven people, including two children and a gunman, were killed in a mass shooting in Montenegro on Friday, and six others were injured, a state prosecutor told Vijesti TV after an initial investigation of the crime scene.

Montenegro Police director Zoran Brdjanin said that around 3.30 p.m.(1330 GMT) a 34-year old man with a hunting rifle shot dead two siblings, one 8 years old and another 11 years old, and injured their mother who died later in the afternoon in a medical facility.

"The family was staying at the house of the shooter as tenants," Brdjanin said. He said the motive for the shooting was not yet known, and he did not give the name of the shooter but said he his initials were V.B.

The shooter then walked out of his house and killed another 7 people. In a shootout with the police, a policeman was injured, Brdjanin said.

"When we arrived at the scene we saw nine dead bodies, including two children, and another two passed away on their way to the hospital," Andrijana Nastic, a state prosecutor, told Vijesti TV.

"I can only say that the shooter was killed by a citizen (civilian)," Nastic said. Earlier, media reported that police had killed the shooter.

Montenegro's Prime Minister Dritan Abazovic said a three-day mourning period would be declared in the country starting Friday evening.

"I was deeply disturbed with reports about terrible tragedy in Cetinje. I express my deepest condolences to those families affected and all those who lost their loved ones," President Milo Djukanovic tweeted.

Experts Say Its "Unlikely" To Catch Monkey Pox From Gym Equipment

Dr. Jessica Justman, associate professor of medicine in epidemiology at Columbia Mailman School of Public Health, says it's "unlikely" for a variety of reasons, including that gym equipment, unlike linens, is "not very porous," which means it's easier to wipe the virus off — something that happens "now more than ever," because of likely in-place COVID-19 protocols.

Important to note, Justman says, is that the monkeypox virus is an "enveloped virus," meaning "each virus particle is coated with a fatty membrane, which is easily disrupted by detergents and other cleaning agents. Without an envelope, the virus is no longer infectious."

Further adding to the low risk factor here, she explains, is that the most infectious areas of this virus are the sores, or pustular lesions, "which tend to be in the genital area." So, for a transmission from such a sore to take place via a gym mat, for example, "someone with monkeypox would first work out on a mat while wearing clothing that does not cover the sores. This person would not wipe the mat down when done. Finally, a second person would work out on the mat while wearing only minimal clothing in order to have direct contact with the mat."

Justman adds, "It's very hard to imagine this complex scenario."

A recent assessment of ranked monkeypox risks from NBC News Chicago that's already been turned into a widely distributed chart agreed, citing Chicago Department of Public Health officials and calling gym equipment (along with public restrooms) "highly unlikely," and noting that "no such cases have been reported so far."

Prince Andrew to Keep Security amid Prince Harry's Lawsuit for U.K. Police Protection

Prince Andrew will keep his taxpayer-funded security as Prince Harry continues his legal battle for U.K. police protection for his family, according to reports.

The Executive Committee for the Protection of Royalty and Public Figures (RAVEC) determined that Andrew is still entitled to public-funded bodyguards despite stepping back from royal duties, The Telegraph reports.

The cost of his personal security detail is estimated to cost between $600,000 and $3.6 million annually, according to the outlet.

Andrew has not participated in any royal event — apart from accompanying his mother to a thanksgiving service for his late father Prince Philip in March — since his association with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein came to light.

In February, Andrew lost the remaining public accouterments of royal life after settling his lawsuit with his sexual abuse accuser Virginia Guiffre. Andrew has denied the claims she made against him.

Several years ago, Andrew's daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie stopped receiving royal security protection, according to The Telegraph.

The RAVEC decision comes as Harry, 37, continues his legal battle to receive U.K. police protection for his family with two ongoing lawsuits.

In July, Harry won the right to challenge the status of the U.K. security arrangements put in place following his decision to step back from frontline royal duties.

The ruling follows a February 2020 decision by the RAVEC to remove Harry's automatic right to U.K. police security after his bombshell January 2020 announcement.

Judge Jonathan Swift granted the Duke of Sussex "permission to apply for judicial review" over the RAVEC decision in legal papers obtained by PEOPLE.

The decision means that the legal action will now proceed to a full hearing at the High Court in London between Harry and the U.K. government — an unprecedented situation in modern times.

On July 7, the High Court heard that Harry and wife Meghan Markle's security has been dealt with on a "flexible, case-by-case" basis since they made their decision to step back.

Harry's legal team has previously stated that Harry "does not feel safe" bringing children Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1, to the U.K. under this arrangement because his U.S. security team does not have jurisdiction in the U.K. or access to U.K. government intelligence.

Earlier this month, Harry filed a second lawsuit looking at the decision that people are not allowed to privately fund their own security, an offer which the Duke of Sussex allegedly made and was refused.

When you KNOW something happened, & it’s been scrubbed from the internet

(Or you’re just really inept at search terms)

Back in the early ‘90s, I remember an incident from the Joan Rivers talk show, that I remember very vividly, but can’t find a trace of it on the net.

One of Joan’s guests was this lady from BET (Robin?) who was their music correspondent. She was mid-50s, which surprised me, I always thought she was too old to be commenting on hip trends in music, & had this really annoying voice.

So she’s talking to Joan & is dismissing rumors about Prince being gay, & said, verbatim, “Prince ain’t no fag.” Joan flipped & said something like how dare you! To which idiot Robin repeated something like, “No, I said he ain’t no fag!”

Joan then scolded her, saying she has lots of gay friends & how dare she use that offensive term, & booted her off the stage.

I was a semi-fan of her show & would catch it when I could, but didn’t see that actual episode. But the incident made national news, which is where I saw clips of it.

I can’t find anything about the show, & can’t even find Robin’s last name (I’m actually not even sure if her name was Robin—certainly not Quivers). Am I crazy, or did this actually happen? Does anyone remember this?

Six Fraternities to USC: "We Gotta Fight. For The Right. To PAAAARTY!!!"

In a mutiny against strict party rules imposed last year following allegations of frat house sexual assaults, six USC fraternities formally disaffiliated from the university Friday — prompting warnings of "serious ramifications" from campus administrators.

"We are disappointed that some USC fraternities are following an unfortunate national trend by disaffiliating from the university — against our strong recommendations," USC said in an Instagram statement Friday night. "This decision seems to be driven by the desire to eliminate university oversight of their operations ... and goes against 130 years of tradition."

USC officials had given fraternities a Friday deadline to convey their decision, as students prepare to return to campus next week. Monique S. Allard, interim vice president for student affairs, told The Times on Friday that officials are still actively engaged in conversations to persuade other fraternity leaders to stay affiliated and benefit from the vast health and safety resources offered by campus professionals.

Fraternities that choose to disaffiliate will lose the right to use the USC logo or brand, access the campus Greek life portal, participate in campuswide committees and club fairs and secure personal and professional leadership opportunities, according to an Aug. 6 letter sent by Allard and Devin Walker, director for fraternity and sorority leadership development.

"Like other universities across the country, we will strongly recommend that our students not join fraternities that are unaffiliated with USC," the letter said. "In fact, we would post the names of unaffiliated chapters online and actively dissuade students from joining such organizations."

Despite those warnings, six of the 15 chapters in the USC Interfraternity Council so far have chosen to sever their relationship with USC. They are Kappa Alpha Order, Pi Kappa Alpha, Sigma Alpha Mu, Sigma Chi, Tau Kappa Epsilon and Zeta Beta Tau.

Leaders with national fraternities and most of their USC chapters did not respond to interview requests.

The showdown at USC has also played out at other campuses where fraternities have protested rules on rushing, drinking and other activities imposed to create safer environments, particularly for women. A 2019 survey of 182,000 students at 33 four-year campuses by the Assn. of American Universities found that fraternity houses were the top location cited in reports of nonconsensual sexual touching.

Fraternities have disaffiliated from such campuses as the University of Colorado Boulder, West Virginia University, Duke University and the University of Michigan. Many objected in particular to bans against recruitment of first-year students during fall semester — a rule that USC also essentially imposes with requirements that students first complete 12 units of coursework and maintain a 2.5 GPA before being eligible to join a campus-affiliated fraternity.

Still, 98.7% of 6,210 member chapters in 57 national and international men’s fraternities represented by the North American Interfraternity Conference are operating with campus recognition, the group said in a statement.

Both USC and the fraternities have much to lose if they break their connection, said John Hechinger, author of "True Gentlemen: The Broken Pledge of America’s Fraternities," a 2017 book on fraternity culture focusing on Sigma Alpha Epsilon.

"It's kind of a nightmare for universities when fraternities disaffiliate ... because they'll likely engage in a lot of the behavior that alarmed the administration, but the school then has very little leverage left," Hechinger said.

"These chapters are going to lose a lot too," he added. "It can't be good for fundraising or recruitment. Using campus facilities has great value. Being able to advertise on and recruit on the website is a big deal. And the fact that [USC] is going to actively discourage people could really hurt them."

'The Netflix Effect': Why Western Women are heading to South Korea in search of love

Talk about being naive...

[quote]The women Lee interviewed were fascinated with Korean men who were portrayed on TV as being in touch with their emotions and willing to embrace their "effeminate sides," Lee said.

[quote]They considered Korean men cultured and romantic while complaining that men in their home countries often neglected their appearances and had one-track minds.

[quote]Grace Thornton, a 25-year-old gardener from the United Kingdom, traveled to Seoul in 2021 after watching K-drama "Crash Landing on You" on Netflix.

[quote]She was struck by how men in the show did not jeer at or catcall women on the street, as happens in her home country.

[quote]In her eyes, Korean men are "gentlemen, polite, charming, romantic, fairytale-like, chivalrous, respectful." She said it also helps that Korean men dress well and groom themselves.

[quote]"(English men in comparison) are half drunk, holding a beer, holding a dead fish," she said -- a reference to what she said was the prevalence of fishing pictures in British male dating app profiles.

[quote]And the appeal is not entirely about the men.

[quote]As Thornton puts it: "In England, I'm very common looking and sound the same as everyone else. In Korea, I'm different, exciting and foreign. People pay attention to me. I felt special."

Dog catches monkeypox after sharing owners’ bed

A dog has been infected with monkeypox for the first time after sharing a bed with its infected owners, scientists have said.

It is the first reported case of a domesticated dog or cat catching the virus and comes as the virus continues to spread worldwide in people.

Two gay men living in Paris developed monkeypox symptoms at the start of June and went to a hospital, where their lesions were identified as being caused by the disease.

The non-exclusive couple, aged 44 and 27-years-old, developed sore lesions in their anal region as well as over the rest of their body a week after having sex with other men.

Twelve days after the men went to the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris with their symptoms, their otherwise healthy four-year-old male Italian greyhound developed lesions too, with pustules on the stomach and a “thin anal ulceration”.

A PCR test revealed the dog had monkeypox, and genetic sequencing found it was a 100 per cent match to the strain that infected his owners, indicating the dog caught the virus from his owners.

Paris, like other Western European capitals including London and Madrid, has been the epicentre of its country’s monkeypox outbreak as the virus spreads almost exclusively via the sexual networks of gay men.

The lesions are themselves laden with infectious material and prolonged close contact is needed for it to spread from one individual to another.

Sexual contact between people is one medium, but not the only way it can be transmitted. For example, healthcare workers have previously caught the virus after handling the bedsheets of an infected person, and sharing a bed but not engaging in sexual activity is a high-risk activity.

The sharing of a bed between a pet dog and two infected individuals is against guidance, with experts urging people to quarantine away from their dog to reduce transmission risk.

“In endemic countries, only wild animals (rodents and primates) have been found to carry monkeypox virus,” the clinicians write in their letter to the Lancet, which was published last week.

“However, transmission of monkeypox virus in prairie dogs has been described in the USA and in captive primates in Europe that were in contact with imported infected animals.

“Infection among domesticated animals, such as dogs and cats, has never been reported.

“To the best of our knowledge, the kinetics of symptom onset in both patients and, subsequently, in their dog suggest human-to-dog transmission of monkeypox virus.”

Official guidance from British health authorities is that pet rodents (gerbils, guinea pigs, hamsters etc) of monkeypox cases must be isolated in a secure location, such as a government lab, for three weeks, as these animals are known to easily catch and spread monkeypox.

However, other pets like cats and dogs can be isolated at home, away from infected people, as it is very difficult for the virus to jump across the species barrier to dogs from people.

Prof Tom Wenseleers, a professor of evolutionary biology at KU Leuven in Belgium, said the fact the virus has infected a pet dog may mean the pathogen, which has infected around 3,000 people in the UK, has mutated recently to spread easier, and in a slightly different way.

“[This case] really makes me wonder if something did change with respect to the tropism and transmission patterns of the [monkeypox] lineage, either recently or since 2017,” he wrote on Twitter.

Defra assesses the risk of human to pet transmission as “low” and guidance published by the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA), an executive agency within Defra, recommends people not groom or stroke their pet, as well as avoiding their bedding, litter and food.

"Physical" was a stupid song

I've been listebning to ONJ's hits, and I am surprised "Physical" was the biggest of them. It's just not a very good song, and it doesn't showcase her vocal gifts (particularly her remarkable control). the way better songs like "Magic" and "Hopelessly Devoted to You" do. Even her sugary early stuff like "Have You never Been mellow?" display her voice better and are arguably better songs.

Why was it such a big hit? was it just because of the sexy video?

She had such a bad experience on her first stint on this show several years ago that I am pretty surprised to say the least that she is negotiating going back in on a special version of the series. I wonder if this has been prompted by the drop off in her viewing figures on her YouTube channel? Yes the figures are still decent but are down on their peaks and she owns a hospitality venue-a sector suffering badly in the UK economy at the moment. That combined with high inflation and the problems it causes is making me think the Lady is in a very tight financially spot.

Underrated Destinations To Consider In Place Of Popular Vacation Spots

If you're anything like me, deciding where to take your next international getaway is one of the most challenging decisions to make. There are so many incredible places to see. And while the big tourist cities — like Greece or Tokyo or Paris — are popular for a reason, perhaps you're looking for something more off-the-beaten path.

So I browsed the r/travel subreddit and gathered responses from the BuzzFeed Community in order to round up a bunch of lesser known (yet incredible) destinations to consider in place of trendier vacation spots.

1.Instead of Greece, go to ALBANIA: "It's Greece's less famous neighbor. It has beautiful beaches, tasty and quite cheap food, and lots of gems to explore. The only downside is that many people don't speak English."

2.Instead of Germany, go to POLAND: "Poland, particularly Poland beyond Krakow, was never on my radar before I moved to Germany and started traveling there all the time since it's right next door. And WOW, Poland has everything. Cool cities, great food, beautiful castles, stunning countryside, and a fascinating history. It really doesn't get the tourism it deserves, although I do like that the major sights aren't crowded with other tourists."

3.Instead of Tulum, go to BELIZE: "Besides for Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker, the rest of Belize is not super touristy. You'll find everything from the second largest barrier reef in the world to lush rainforests. It’s cheap, the people are very friendly, and it’s relatively safe."

4.Instead of Seoul, go to BUSAN: "Busan, South Korea is this bizarre juxtaposition of ancient and super modern, and everything is both chaotic and incredibly organized. I’m not sure how it functions but it does...and seemingly way better than other large cities. The scenery, the food, and the people were fantastic."

5."Instead of Andalusia, visit NORTHERN SPAIN: "Northern Spain is where you'll find incredible beauty that rivals anywhere else in Europe, but for a fraction of the cost. You could spend months exploring the Basque Country, Asturias, Cantabria, and Galicia alone. Driving around the Picos de Europa mountain range is a great experience. You can travel between rural mountain towns and quaint beach towns within an hour. Madrid, Barcelona, Andalusia, and other vacation towns in Spain get so much attention, but the north is really underrated."

6.Instead of Sicily, go to MALTA: "Not surprisingly it’s a bit more popular with Europeans, but Malta is practically unheard of among Americans. It's a fantastic place to visit: Cheap, stunningly beautiful, and pretty good weather year round. I was there last month and there were a fair number of tourists around the main sites in Valetta, but almost no one around once you went even slightly off the beaten path."

7.Instead of Thailand, go to SRI LANKA: "Sri Lanka is the pearl of the Indian ocean, ripe with natural beauty and history. It's home to friendly people and tasty (often spicy!) food, sandy beaches, palm trees, and lots of wild life."

8.Instead of Croatia, go to MONTENEGRO: "Montenegro is truly a hidden gem in the Balkans. Podgorica is a lovely city, and visiting the coast in and around Budva feels like stepping back in time."

9.Instead of Bali, go to BORNEO: "Borneo, and especially Kalimantan (the Indonesian portion of the island) is worth a trip. Lots of people visit Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Java, and Bali, but not as many people head to Borneo. Even those who visit Borneo mostly stay in Malaysia and very few venture into Kalimantan. There you'll find rainforest, orangutans, leopards, and beaches, and it's way less crowded than Bali."

10.Instead of Lake Como, go to LAKE GARDA: "I never hear Americans talking about this lesser-known Italian lake town, but its honestly one of the most beautiful places Ive ever been."

Julian Lennon comes to terms with family legacy

As the son of a Beatle, Julian Lennon was perhaps destined to go into music, launching his impressive recording career in 1984 with Valotte. That hit album yielded two top 10 singles and went platinum in the U.S., but Julian’s musical journey hasn’t always been easy, so he has often taken off a decade or more between albums to focus on his other passions, including photography, documentary filmmaking, authoring children’s books, and his environmental organization, the White Feather Foundation.

However, with Jude — his first album since 2011 — the 59-year-old singer-songwriter’s career is coming full-circle, as indicated by the comeback LP’s loaded title. “For me, Jude was all about the coming-of-age in many respects, because it was hearkening back to some of the comments and lyrics in ‘Hey Jude,’” he tells Yahoo Entertainment. “It just felt like the right title and the right thing, and owning it. That was a different thing — being ‘Julian,’ being ‘Jules,’ being ‘Jude.’ Who I am. It’s about also breaking through any fear and anxiety I used to have about the Beatles, about Dad, about everything.”

The album’s title is obviously a reference to the Beatles’ epic 1968 ballad “Hey Jude,” which Paul McCartney wrote to comfort Julian when John Lennon was separating from Julian’s mother, Cynthia. Julian was only 5 years old at the time and didn’t grasp the message of the song — which was originally titled “Hey Jules” — until “much later in life, when I was listening to what [McCartney] had written and what he was hoping for me, which is to take the weight off my shoulders of the world and to find love and to be happy in life.” And that's why the title Jude is “so relevant” now.

“Recently, in 2020, I decided that I was going to change my name, because originally my name was John Lennon — John Charles Julian Lennon,” Julian explains. “And I'd had issues with that, especially at airports and security — not-so-great moments and comments that had gone by because of my name being John, whether people recognized me or not. I decided that in 2020, after going through another learning process in life, that I wanted to become Julian. I was sick and tired of being someone else's John. And so, I changed my name to Julian Charles John Lennon. … And that was all related to ‘Jude’ and ‘Jules,’ which is my nickname on a daily basis. So, it just made sense to me, and also with what was going on with the Beatles and Get Back and my feelings about that too. It was all intermingled.”

Julian admits that watching Get Back, Peter Jackson’s deep-dive docuseries comprising more than six hours of unseen, often unexpectedly joyful footage originally captured for Michael Lindsay-Hogg's documentary about the Beatles’ Let It Be album, was “a lot to process.” But, he stresses, “It really reminded me of the way Dad used to be. You know, when we were together, when I was a kid, he was funny, goofy, sarcastic, talented, moody, broody — but fun. And that was all the things that he was to me when we lived together. And it made me fall in love with him again, which was really lovely. It made me appreciate him again, and reminded me of how he was before everything went a bit pear-shaped.”

Julian says he’d already forgiven his once-estranged father — who was murdered in 1980, when Julian was age 17 and just beginning to re-establish a bond with John — “many years ago for the stress that happened in not only in my life, but Mom's life too. … Certainly we tried to embrace each other's company and tried to learn about each other again before he passed. And it was enjoyable experience. It was great. And I was longing to hang out with him even more, but you know, sadly what happened, happened. … So, [Get Back] was just a way of remembering who he was and seeing the human side of him again. And that inspired me, and I loved that. So, the idea of that also tied into being ‘Jude’ as well.”

Oh, look. Americans losing their shit in public. Again.

Viral video of a fight at a Texas airport ended with an airline employee suspended, according to Spirit Airlines.

The fight took place Thursday, Aug. 11, at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, Spirit Airlines said in an Aug. 12 statement to McClatchy News. DTX tweeted a video of the fight that went viral — over six million views in 24 hours.

In the video, the airline agent — wearing a maroon shirt — and a woman are heard yelling at each other.

“You have lost your mind, don’t touch me ever in your life,” the agent yells in the woman’s face. “You touched me first and then you got in my face. Don’t ever invade my personal space.”

The woman yells back, “Get out of my face, get out of my face!”

“Stay out of my personal space,” the agent says as the woman yells homophobic and racist slurs, pushing his chest.

A bystander intervenes, trying to separate the pair. The woman reaches around the bystander and swings at the man’s face.

She runs, tripping on a row of chairs, as the agent comes after her, also losing his balance and falling on top of her. As the two get up, the agent hits the woman on the back twice.

The woman runs off camera as more people — including those who look like airport employees — surround the agent. He attempts to go after the woman again, but more people intervene, trying to break up the fight.

“I’ll fight whoever!” the agent yells repeatedly, facing off with another bystander. The video ends.

Spirit Airlines told McClatchy News that the agent involved was employed by an airport vendor and has been suspended. “Spirit Airlines does not tolerate violence of any kind, and we are working with local law enforcement to investigate this matter,” the company said.

The video shows the date “7/11/22,” but Spirit Airlines confirmed the altercation took place on Aug. 11.

Unknown To Me Terrance Dean Is Dead To Me

I am not familiar with him or his work and have only heard of him upon the announcement of his death.

The Columbus Dispatch:

[quote] Terrance Dean — a beloved Denison University professor, the Columbus Museum of Art's first Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson Scholar-in-Residence, and editorial board member for The Columbus Dispatch — died this week at the age of 53.

[quote] Details are still unclear as to how or when exactly Dean died. Denison officials said Dean had recently felt unwell and briefly spent time at a local hospital. Columbus police performed a wellness check Thursday and found him dead at his Downtown home.


[quote] [bold] Hiding in Hip Hop [/bold] begins with an account of Dean's traumatic childhood growing up impoverished to abusive, drug addicted parents and how these childhood experiences led him to the entertainment industry.

[quote] Dean then discusses how he got involved in a secret gay hip-hop subculture and his first parties. He gives graphic depictions of sexual acts between men he either participated in or witnessed, some allegedly involving well-known rappers or Hollywood celebrities. Throughout the book, Dean refers to himself and various individuals as being "down-low" or "down-low gay": men who have sex with men but do not consider themselves gay or are in the closet.[1]

Now that he has passed, DL, please tell me what you know and think of him.

Author Salman Rushdie Is Attacked Onstage in Western New York

Salman Rushdie, the author, was attacked Friday while onstage in Chautauqua, near Erie in western New York, according to multiple eyewitnesses and accounts on social media.

The attack happened at about 10:45 a.m., shortly after Mr. Rushdie took the stage to deliver a lecture at the Chautauqua Institution, a community in western New York that offers arts and literary programming during the summer.

Mr. Rushdie had just come onstage and was seated in a chair as a staff member introduced him, when the assailant rushed the stage and assaulted the author. It was not immediately clear whether Mr. Rushdie was injured.

Mr. Rushdie spent about 10 years under police protection, living in hiding after Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini of Iran called for his execution in 1989 because his novel “The Satanic Verses” was considered offensive to Islam. The book was banned in India, where he was born, and he was barred from the country for more than a decade.

“There was just one attacker,” said Elisabeth Healey, 75, who was in the audience. “He was dressed in black. He had a loose black garment on. He ran with lightning speed over to him.”

Brideshead Revisited (1981)

I recently decided to rewatch the whole Brideshead series this past month. First of all, IMO this entire series was perfect; beautiful acting, period detail, superb writing. Jeremy Irons and Anthony Andrews in particular are gorgeous in this.

Watching it I couldn’t help but think, would anyone in 2021 be able to sit through a single episode of this? It’s far too literate for people weaned on recent period pieces like Downton Abbey and The Gilded Age etc.

Is it even possible for something to be both popular and sophisticated like this anymore?

Is the movie Can't Stop the Music worth seeing?

I literally didn't know this movie existed until 10 minutes ago. Tooling around online I found the clip below, and it is everything I want in entertainment at the moment. This hot, joyful guy roller skating/dancing through New York, 1980 to a disco tune in tight trousers? I am so tickled by this. Never mind that in real life a guy doing that would probably be sectioned, it is just so joyful that the inner cynic in me forgot to even roll his eyes at the ridiculous "New York is the greatest city in the world" lyrics to the song. I just have a massive smile on my face.

I read a couple of comments under the video and the consensus seems to be it's a terrible movie. But what I want to know is, is it good terrible or bad terrible? If the former, I definitely think I might enjoy this!

Manson Serial Killer, Patricia Krenwinkle Found Suitable For Parole

This is a disturbing first. Besides being a psychopath, inmate Krenwinkle, along with Van Houten were the ones responsible for the care of the cult's children. They were both, well aware that Manson was molesting the kids, so add that to her crimes. Also, none of the killers have ever apologized to the victim's families. Governor Newsom will review the parole board of three's findings. Newsom can overturn the boards decision, but public opinion is important. If you'd like to help block this parole there is an online petition. I think it's just name and zip code.

Straight men are starved for friendship

I’ve always been amazed at how superficial straight male friendships are.

In fact, if I have an even mildly in-depth conversation with a straight male, he’ll often think I’m suddenly a close friend.

An example was a three day retreat I was on with people in my profession from around the country. I talked to one guy maybe twice during that weekend. At the end, he comes up to me and says, “You feel like a close friend.”

People want the cops there when they are in trouble and to leave them alone when they are not…and good on them.

It’s their job after all.

These people weren’t born police. They decided to become one. Nobody is forcing them to be there.

So there is no excuse for this nation-wide police strike on crime-fighting. They need to do the jobs they are being paid to do.

I don’t even blame the officers, they take orders from the brass which has clearly told them to stand down and let crime fester while blaming it all on the “woke” DAs and Biden.

This is a clear strategy to influence politics by not policing crime. The LAPD has admitted as much. This is all coming from the top. Don’t blame the individual officers.

Nighttime itchiness

Does anyone else get itchy while waiting to fall asleep at night? This has been an ongoing problem for at least 20 years, at least. I've had insomnia nearly my entire adult life since I was in college and the itching became an added, nearly nightly annoyance that made it harder to fall asleep. I get it everywhere on my body, even my feet. I've pretty much concluded it's psychosomatic. I've changed laundry detergents (even though I don't have this issue during the daytime), upped the frequency of changing sheets to three times a week, and I moisturize. I've taken benadryl but the effects wear off after about a week. I try to distract myself by reading; sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I'm going to talk to my MD to see if there's a medication to deal with this, but my next appointment isn't until February.

Does anyone else experience this? Any suggestions?

Sculpture of Putin in NYC Playground

Russian President Vladimir Putin showed up in a playground in New York City's Central Park on Monday night.

Well, not exactly -- a bright-red sculpture of Putin was erected there by French artist James Colomina. Colomina took credit for the sculpture, which depicts Putin sitting atop a miniature war tank, in an Instagram post. "This sculpture aims at denouncing the absurdity of war and at highlighting children's courage when faced with violent, catastrophic situations triggered by others," wrote Colomina.

He posted several photos of children playfully interacting with the sculpture. Colomina is known for his bright red street sculptures, often surreptitiously installed in public locations without any prior warning. In April, he set up another sculpture with an anti-war message: a child soldier carrying a rifle that turns into a rose, placed in France.

And last year he erected two sculptures in his signature red in Berlin as commentary on the 32nd anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, according to French-owned gallery group Galeries Bartoux. Colomina's installation comes more the five months into the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Russia has inflicted devastating attacks on Ukraine "not seen since World War II," NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on Thursday.

Shirley MacLaine talks to Advocate regarding sexual identity, contemplation, and more

“ Gay men have been such an important part of my life forever. I was a ballet dancer starting at 3 years old. I remember there were people I knew who were questioning who they were long before junior high.

Then I was on Broadway. To me, there was no separation, in other words, I never looked at someone and said, “Oh, he’s gay.” There was no kind of acknowledgment of different sexual orientation, it was just acceptance.

Where does it say that we have to only have two sexes? Just say, for example, that there’s a third-choice neutrality — not identifying at all. I wonder how much more at peace we’d all feel in the world if we had to go without identifying our sexual identity in any way.”

But Shawn Mendes and Timothee Chalamet for some reason have no pages included on the website.

The Disappearance of Lars Mittank

Lars Joachim Mittank (born February 9, 1986) is a German man who disappeared on July 8, 2014, near Varna Airport in Varna, Bulgaria. Mittank was vacationing at the Golden Sands resort, where he was supposedly involved in a fight, and was subsequently unable to fly home with his friends for health reasons. Mittank was documented acting strangely while alone in Bulgaria. He called home to his mother claiming that people were trying to kill him. On the day when he was supposed to fly home, Mittank went to the Varna Airport to consult with a doctor. He was later seen on airport security footage running out of the airport and towards an adjacent forest. He has never been seen since. The case has generated intense interest, and the frequency with which people viewed the footage of him fleeing the airport has led to him being named "the most famous missing person on YouTube."

Lars Mittank was born on February 9, 1986 in Berlin, Germany. He grew up in Itzehoe, Schleswig-Holstein, and lived there for his entire life. He worked at a power plant, had friends, and a girlfriend. He visited his parents frequently. After his father suffered a stroke, he often helped at his parents' home after work. He was described as a normal person.

On June 30, 2014, 28-year-old Mittank traveled with five of his friends to Varna, Bulgaria. It was his first journey outside of Germany. The group vacationed at the Golden Sands, a seaside resort just outside of the city of Varna. “The week went by really fast," said Paul Rohmann, one of Mittank’s friends, in 2016 on German television. “We relaxed on the beach, swam in the pool, played football, went clubbing. He was relaxed. He was in a good mood." Another friend, Tim Schuldt, said that Mittank did not eat much, and that he would have only a small bowl of soup or a small salad at a time. His friends reported no additional abnormal behavior by Mittank until the final part of the trip.

On July 6, 2014, the day before they were supposed to return home, Mittank and friends were at a bar in town, and Mittank got into a disagreement with some other German nationals over football. Mittank, a fan of the football club Werder Bremen, had differences with fans of Bayern Munich. He then parted from his friends outside a restaurant after leaving the bar, and disappeared for the rest of the night. Mittank turned up at the resort the following morning and told his friends he was beaten up by four men hired by the group in the bar whom he disagreed with the night before. The fight resulted in Mittank suffering an injured jaw and a ruptured ear drum. He went and saw a doctor who advised him not to fly due to his injury, and prescribed the antibiotic Cefprozil (500 mg). Mittank's friends wanted to stay with him, but he insisted he was fine on his own, and told them to follow the original travel plan and fly home on July 7, which they did.

Mittank checked out of the resort the same time as his friends, and checked into the Hotel Color Varna for one night. The hotel was cheap and close to the airport. However, a day after his friends left, he began to act paranoid. While at the hotel, Mittank called his mother, Sandra Mittank. In a whisper, he told her that people were trying to kill or rob him and that she should cancel his credit cards. The closed-circuit television security cameras in the hotel recorded him pacing up and down the halls, looking out windows, and hiding in an elevator. At 1 A.M., he left the hotel before returning about an hour later. It is not known what he did in the intervening period. In the morning, he once again called his mother, telling her that the people pursuing him were getting closer.

LOVING this new song of hers. And so glad to see that she's not abandoning the disco/soul/House-influenced sounds of the What's Your Pleasure album. This one is an instant earworm. Can't wait to hear more.

Apparently she's opening for some of Harry Styles' shows in the U.S.?? I wonder if all the children will appreciate Jessie. Regardless, probably a good gig!

Continuing my gay education: Cruising (1980)

Recently, I've been catching up on a lot of gay history/culture that I never bothered to look into much before. Last night I finally got around to watching Cruising.

I have SO many questions about this film and need to do a bit more research around it. Questions like: after the film was released, were the people that were protesting this still unhappy with it? What exactly were the protests about? (The worry that straight people would view this as being representative of the community?). Also, what happened at the end? I couldn't work out if they caught the killer or not. They said they had Stuart's fingerprint on the coin, yet it finishes on an ambiguous note. Was Ted's boyfriend the real killer? Or was there another killer? I was kinda confused.

BUT, I actually enjoyed this movie a lot for what it was. I have watched a number of these late 70s/early 80s New York movies that feel exceptionally gritty and leave you wanting a bath afterwards (Don't Go In The House, Maniac, Basket Case, The New York Ripper). I think I enjoyed this one the most. I find the aesthetic really interesting, and this time and place really interesting, though it's so grubby at the same time.

From those who were around then - how accurate was the depiction of these gay places? I really appreciated how divey the whole thing looked. Even after I came of age in the early 00s, a lot of gay places had a kind of divey, "poor man's version" feel, so I did find that gave a feeling a believability to something set in 1980. Although not a funny movie, I did laugh when Pacino goes to Cop Night and is kicked out for being the only one not dressed as a cop when he actually WAS one.

Was Central Park really that populated at night back then? I remember reading how dangerous it was then, but then again all these men looked threatening themselves in all that leather, so maybe they felt safer because of that?

"Some friends of mine were up there that night and heard someone singing..." brr. That line is quite creepy, really.

I was surprised that there was a lot less homophobia that I was expecting. Some from characters in the movie, but even then it didn't permeate everything. And I didn't pick up any from the actual movie itself.

Al Pacino was HOT! I was really shocked, because I know of him of course, but never thought anything of him. Here, I liked him very much.

Another thing I appreciated about it was a different portrayal of gay men (and I noticed they state straight away that this isn't mainstream gay life, but more an underground culture). We don't really get a lot of portrayals of gay men that are so... well, [italic]threatening[/italic] for want of a better word. I'm not talking about the killing aspect, I mean the masculinity and machismo of the whole thing. In most things we're portrayed more femmey (which doesn't always bother me, necessarily, but it is pretty standard and only one part of the community) or basically neutered. So that was interesting to me. All that focus on hair, muscle, sweat and griminess. I'm not even into leather and I found the look of the movie fascinating. I kinda loved the idea that to go underground in gay culture involves Pacino having to lift weights. Most other movies would have to have him learn camping or something and it'd be jokey. And it's all men bar one woman really, who just seems to exist so Pacino can fuck her. (tbc)

States where all the people have a similar look…

You can’t say this about every state (although I haven’t been to them all) but some states seem to have people that all look the same or similar look about them. So much so that you could pick them out in other states if they were to be in a crowd of visitors.

This is all changing rapidly of course as there is a lot of migration going on but generally speaking, do you agree that some states produce a similar look and if so which ones?

Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin (R) got $8,500,000 cash tax-free deal from Carlyle Group in 2020.

In January 2020, Glenn Youngkin, now the Republican governor of Virginia, got some welcome news. A complex corporate transaction had gone through at the Carlyle Group, the powerful private equity company that Youngkin led as co-chief executive. Under the deal, approved by the Carlyle board and code-named “Project Phoenix,” he began receiving $8.5 million in cash and exchanged his almost $200 million stake in the company for an equal amount of tax-free shares, according to court documents.

The Project Phoenix payout came on top of $54 million in compensation Youngkin had received from Carlyle during the previous two years, regulatory records show. Youngkin retired from Carlyle on Sept. 30, 2020; he won the governor’s election in November 2021.

Europe Suffering Its Worst Drought In 500 Years

From dry and cracked reservoirs in Spain to falling water levels on major arteries like the Danube, the Rhine and the Po, an unprecedented drought is afflicting nearly half of the European continent.

There has been no significant rainfall for almost two months in Western, Central and Southern Europe. And the dry period is expected to continue in what experts say could be the worst drought in 500 years.

No LGB without the T trends on Twitter following slogan at Parade

DIY store Wickes is facing a backlash over a controversial float at Brighton Pride promoting trans rights.

The hardware company took part in the parade through the seaside resort with a float featuring a poster reading, 'no LGB without the T' at the weekend.

The words were emblazoned over the pink and white transgender flag, with the strapline, 'we stand with our trans siblings now and forever' underneath it.

But Wickes's campaign sparked a heated debate on Twitter with campaigners on both sides wading in to share their views.

Activist and friend of J K Rowling Allison Bailey tweeted: 'To be clear, this is Wickes promoting unlawful discrimination against lesbians, gays & bisexuals & making our rights conditional on supporting another group.'

Ms Bailey is a long-standing activist for the LGB alliance, a charity which promotes and supports gay, lesbian and bisexual people.

But other supporters praised the hardware giant for its inclusive motto on show in East Sussex, with one tweeting: 'Wickes have won Twitter today... well done to whoever made the decision to do Pride right'.

Shitstorm in academia over wanking paper

A respected ethnographic research journal has published an article by a PhD student about wanking to Japanese erotic manga boy comics to assess psychological impact on its readers. Shitstorm results! One report has a professor saying, "Wanking isn't research." (I'm sure DL would profoundly disagree with this.)

Of the author: "In the noughties he edited a magazine called Destroyer, which aimed to “bring back the adolescent gay boy as one of the ideals of gay culture." Well, a few less bears and trans would be a blessing. And it might be nice to see more Piccadilly Eros style statues in parks. However.... there are several interesting aspects to this scandal. 1) That it scratches the surface of Japanese erotic manga, a phenomenon the West barely recognises; and how the Japanese view it as pure fantasy, whereas in the West it would be viewed as spilling over into reality and molestation. 2. That recognising and celebrating the beauty of youths, as the Victorians did, has become a massive no-no for fear of encouraging the latter. The author has a YouTube channel. He comes across as a kind of child-like highly intellectual and sheltered Swedish scholar. One gets the sense he's never held down a job, or interacted too much with reality. Bless him. Cultural upsetters are always interesting.

"President of France" file found during FBI raid on Mar-A-Lago

A former Hillary Clinton aide heavily implied that former President Donald Trump had dirt on the French president and that it could be useful to Russian President Vladimir Putin, Fox News reported.

Jennifer Palmieri, who was the director of communications for Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign, did not mention Trump or Putin by name.

But a tweet, shared on Friday night, suggested that information on French President Emmanuel Macron, which was found during the FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago, could be maliciously used by a world leader.

"Racking my brain here," Palmieri tweeted. "Which world leader would find Kompromat on Macron valuable?"

The hypothetical question appears to be referring to Putin. Palmieri did not immediately respond to Insider's request for clarification.

During the raid on Mar-a-Lago, Trump's Florida home, the FBI found four sets of top-secret documents and seven sets of classified information, per a list of items seized and unsealed by a federal magistrate on Friday.

Among the items seized was "info re: President of France." It is not immediately clear why Trump had this file at Mar-a-Lago or what was included in the file.

Palmieri, in her tweet, appears to suggest that the information is "kompromat" —embarrassing or damaging information that can be used to blackmail or discredit public figures. There is not currently enough information on the seized file to prove or disprove this.

ABC News has noted, however, that Russia has a long history of employing "kompromat."

And Macron, who initially tried to engage in diplomacy with Russia amid the invasion of Ukraine, is reportedly now in Putin's bad books, per RFI. A Kremlin spokesperson told the news agency that France is now considered an "unfriendly" country and Macron and Putin have not spoken via telephone for two months.

Palmieri, in 2017, has previously accused Trump allies of "collusion" with Russia and described the former president as having a "pro-Putin bent."

Special counsel Robert Mueller's 2019 Russia probe report, submitted after Palmieri's claims, did not find sufficient evidence to charge anyone from the Trump campaign with illegally conspiring or coordinating with the Russian government.

Palmieri served as White House Director of Communications from 2013 to 2015.

And just a huge thing talking about William and- she delights in showing all the headlines and hashtag princeWilliamaffair- and says he deserves it bc he has been mean to Harry: Her hypocrisy makes my teeth hurt. And btw she was the one who first used the term SUSSEXIT instead of Megxit, like right at the v beginning, and it came out later the Meghan hated the term Megxit. She or Marcus feeds her everything which I don’t actually hate, I mean sources are sources, but why only one side. And why is she kissing their ass ALL THE TIME?. Honestly it’s sickening and it feels like she’s a sell out . Ps the Fact that Pippa named her new daughter Rose - that is pretty solid evidence to me that that affair didn’t happen.

Caitlyn Jenner has jealous and awkward feelings toward OJ Simpson

From "The secrets of my life" book by Caitlyn Jenner:

Kris restores my credibility. She helps to restore the image of Bruce. I also believe that Kris gets something from me. Her divorce from Robert Kardashian, a successful lawyer and entrepreneur later made famous for his ceaseless loyalty to his longtime friend O.J. Simpson, had been ugly.

Robert was angry . He could not believe that Kris was leaving. There was a great deal of acrimony. As in many difficult divorces, I believe that Robert wanted Kris to realize she had made a terrible mistake and end up in some crappy apartment in the Valley. It didn’t happen that way. We made a glamorous couple, clearly in love. We began to have success in business as a team. I was well known. So sometimes I wondered if Kris was making a statement to her former husband: a big fuck you.

It is because of Kris that my social life expands, She is extremely close with OJ Simpson and Nicole, which also means that O.J. comes into my life. I already know him a little bit, and a little bit goes a very long way because of his endless braggadocio. We have both come out of the same world of the male athlete. O.J. was at the completely opposite side of the spectrum as me.

For all our profound personal differences, our careers had shared many similarities.

He seized the attention of the nation when he played football at the University of Southern California, capped off with a Heisman Trophy and the indelible image of him running for a sixty-four-yard touchdown to beat UCLA in 1967 in one of the greatest college football games of all time. It put him high atop a public pedestal that only grew higher when he played pro football for the Buffalo Bills and set a single-season rushing record in 1973 with 2003 yards. I likewise seized the attention of the nation when I won the decathlon, capped off with setting a world record on live television and the indelible image of the victory lap I took waving the American flag.

We both became the faces of major brands, O.J. with Hertz and I with Wheaties. We both became sportscasters for ABC and later NBC. We both did motivational speeches. We both had modest film careers. We were both on the charity golf and tennis tournament circuit. We both knew what it was like to feel that pedestal, like a block of ice, begin to melt and the inevitability that others will take our places.

People who are *CHEAP* NOT Frugal

Case in point: Travel. Do y’all know these people?

My calendar is BOOKED for the summer and I have three trips planned. One in August by myself, one in July for a friend’s birthday, and one on Memorial Day to help someone possibly stake out a move to Chicago.

Trying to plan the May & July trip with the rest of the parties has been a HEADACHE.

“I’m not trying to spend too much.”

“Yeah, if more people come it will be cheaper!”

The Chicago trip I can sort of understand— a quick weekend shouldn’t break the budget. But if you are traveling to a city you don’t know, you are going to spend money.

The July trip was originally to Miami, but was moved to Houston in part because of traveling costs. We are in line for an AirBnb with 1 shower for 5 people because “we want to keep it reasonable.” Why are we even going then if all you are going to do is whine about how much this costs and that costs? At dinner, cutting up the receipt at the table while we’re still out trying to enjoy ourselves because “I only ate this much and had one drink, so I am only paying.”

These people are no fun to plan travel with. You are going to spend money traveling, that is the point!

87 or Older: Four Hitchcock Blondes & Many More Actresses Persist in Living

I saw a post about Angela Lansbury turning 96 today and that got me to thinking about the impressive number of actresses who were born in 1934 or earlier / are 87 or beyond. Without even thinking too hard, here's who I came up with:

Vera Miles – 92 Tippi Hedren - soon to be 92 Kim Novak - 88 Eva Marie Saint - 97 Sophia Loren - 87 Brigitte Bardot - 87 Joan Collins - 88 Julie Newmar - 88 Monica Vitti - 89 Angie Dickinson - 90 Rita Moreno - 90 in December Piper Laurie - 89 Mamie Van Doren - 90 Mitzi Gaynor - 90 Arlene Dahl - 96 Terry Moore - 92 Gina Lollobrigida - 94

A lot of these women have not been seen in quite some time, and are likely not in great health, but that's not the point: they are alive. Is it good genes, a healthy lifestyle (avoiding sun, tobacco, alcohol), staying active, premium healthcare?

What other actresses are among the living in that age range? Born before 1935?

Have you ever been harshly critiqued by your boss…

Even though you’re doing a really good job at your workplace, and your boss actually acknowledges, that you’re doing a really good job?

I’m working at an office that is ABSOLUTELY very temporary for me.

It’s not a career I want, nor is it a career that has a great trajectory, however, I’m doing it currently and temporarily, because I am purposely attempting to get back into a routine that demands accountability.

I’m early every day. I do what’s expected of me, and I meet my goals on a daily basis. More importantly, I meet the goals of my employer, on a daily basis.

That being said, yesterday, my direct supervisor gave me a rundown as to why I’m not meeting the company’s expectations, because my numbers are low in one of their expectations formulas, yet I’m exceeding expectations in their sales opportunities, because I’m spending more time developing customer relationships, which is precisely the reason why I have high prospect numbers, and my boss acknowledges this.

I’m actually not phased by this at all. I’m old enough now to understand the insane and dichotomous expectations companies place on employees. Show high results, yet get shafted because as an employee, you are so good, you should be able to have higher results, rather than steady and above expectations, results.

Greedy people suck. They suck especially, when they’re your employer.

I’m so happy I’m back to studying and that I’ve chosen to pursue a serious career, that allows me to work remotely and get the job done, without emotional manipulation and the bullshit one deals with when one is involved in sales jobs.

I will be out of there soon, and I know this, so I’m not really bothered by it, and have learned to not take shit like this too seriously, or even give that much of a fuck, but I really do understand why today’s youth are just sick AF when working for companies that give mixed messaging, ESPECIALLY when they’re excelling at their jobs and doing shit by the book.

People are sick of this crap. They’re sick of being told how good they are at their jobs. They’re sick of reviewing data that UNDOUBTEDLY proves they’re excelling at their jobs, yet being told that going above and beyond, isn’t good enough.

I get it. I understand The Great Resignation.

Working on corporate America is nothing but a HUGE gaslighting experience.

Fuck these assholes who demand blood because they’re slaves to shitty business models and quarterly Wall Street expectations.

It’s not sustainable, and I understand why every generation seethe with dejection resulting in profound resentment.

Rise in popularity of anal sex has led to health problems for women

Women in the UK are suffering injuries and other health problems as a result of the growing popularity of anal sex among straight couples, two NHS surgeons have warned.

The consequences include incontinence and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) as well as pain and bleeding because they have experienced bodily trauma while engaging in the practice, the doctors write in an article in the British Medical Journal.

Tabitha Gana and Lesley Hunt also argued that doctors’ reluctance to discuss the risks associated with anal sex was leading to women being harmed by the practice and letting down a generation of women who are not aware of the potential problems.

In the journal, they said “anal intercourse is considered a risky sexual behaviour because of its association with alcohol, drug use and multiple sex partners”.

However, “within popular culture it has moved from the world of pornography to mainstream media” and TV shows including Sex and the City and Fleabag may have contributed to the trend by making it seem “racy and daring”.

However, women who engage in anal sex are at greater risk from it than men. “Increased rates of faecal incontinence and anal sphincter injury have been reported in women who have anal intercourse,” the report said.

“Women are at a higher risk of incontinence than men because of their different anatomy and the effects of hormones, pregnancy and childbirth on the pelvic floor.

“Women have less robust anal sphincters and lower anal canal pressures than men, and damage caused by anal penetration is therefore more consequential.

“The pain and bleeding women report after anal sex is indicative of trauma, and risks may be increased if anal sex is coerced,” they said.

Not an EST just sharing this info. I ran into a guy who had the hots for me a while back but he was a bit chunky. He looked fucking amazing, so one thing lead to another and we fucked. His ass was so tight I thought maybe he had not gotten many guys because of his weight. He laughed. He got laid plenty but he used this thing called a bionic gym?? It straps to your thighs and electrically stimulates them like you were running a marathon. He said it burned 700 calories a day and because of the muscle groups it was like Keigels on steroids. He said his dick gets rock hard now, before he had issues and his ass has never been tighter. He was not lying. So fellas , find your self a man with a bionic gym, or get one for your hubby if you have one. Jesus Christ it was like topping a virgin who knew what he was doing!

Post stories about DUMB people you’ve met

Here is a thread existing for the sole purpose of sharing stories about DUMB people you’ve met.

Back in 1993, when I was 11/12 years old, I was volunteering at my school in the summer as an assistant to one of the teachers who was teaching a class of younger kids. However, the class included an 11 year-old girl (I’ll call her Emma) who was significantly older than the other kids in the class.

One day, the teacher gave the kids an assignment to pick an animal who was endangered, give a presentation about the animal, and why they felt sorry for the animal. Well, most of the kids picked forest animals who were dying because of deforestation and they’d say, “I feel sorry for this animal because its home is being chopped down.”

Finally, it was Emma’s turn. She picked the polar bear. And she said in her presentation, “I feel sorry for the polar bear because its home is being chopped down….”

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.

Anne Heche's Eldest Son Homer Reacts To Her Death: 'Hopefully My Mom Is Free From Pain'

Anne Heche will never be forgotten.

After the actress was confirmed legally dead following her involvement in a car crash late last week, her eldest son Homer reacted to the heartbreaking news.

In a statement to Access Hollywood, the 20-year-old expressed his family’s heartache amid his mother’s untimely death.

“My brother Atlas and I lost our Mom. After six days of almost unbelievable emotional swings, I am left with a deep, wordless sadness. Hopefully my mom is free from pain and beginning to explore what I like to imagine as her eternal freedom,” Homer told Access Hollywood.

The Emmy Award-winning star shared her two sons, Homer and Atlas, with her exes Coley Laffoon and James Tupper.

Homer went on to thank “thousands of friends, family, and fans made their hearts known to me.”

“I am grateful for their love, as I am for the support of my Dad, Coley, and my stepmom Alexi who continue to be my rock during this time.”

“Rest In Peace Mom, I love you,” he concluded.

Heche’s rep told NBC News on Friday that, while Heche is legally dead according to California law, her heart is still beating and has not been taken off life support yet in order to donate her organs.

“We have lost a bright light, a kind and most joyful soul, a loving mother, and a loyal friend. Anne will be deeply missed but she lives on through her beautiful sons, her iconic body of work, and her passionate advocacy. Her bravery for always standing in her truth, spreading her message of love and acceptance, will continue to have a lasting impact.” Heche’s rep said in a statement to NBC News on behalf of her family and friends.

Heche was hospitalized last Friday after driving her car into a home in Los Angeles’ Mar Vista neighborhood.

On Thursday, authorities revealed that preliminary testing indicates that Heche had drugs in her system. A Los Angeles Police Department public information officer tells NBC News that a blood draw “revealed the presence of drugs” adding that a second test would be done to rule out any substances of medications administered to her at the hospital.

According to eyewitnesses of the crash who spoke to TMZ, Heche allegedly first crashed a blue Mini Cooper into the garage of an apartment building. They claimed residents of the complex tried to get Heche out of the car, but that she drove off, then crashed into a nearby house shortly after – sparking a fire.

According to a Los Angeles Fire Department report, which did not identify Heche, the solo-passenger vehicle struck a two-story home, “causing structural compromise and erupting in heavy fire.” It took firefighters just over an hour to extinguish the flames.

Why was Kellie Martin killed off “ER” so brutally?

Lucy became a fan favorite character, the new young Doctor on the show. I remember when this episode aired, and Carter gets attacked by the crazy patient and then when he looks over and sees Lucy there, bleeding to death, with no one knowing. That was such a shock to the viewers. It made me stomach turn at the time.

ER was such a good show. I consider rewatching it sometimes but never do. I loved George Clooney on it. Such raw magnetism. The show wasn’t the same without him and Julianna Marguiles. I had a crush on Noah Wyle during the first few seasons, where he was the new young Doctor. I loved that by the time Kellie Martin came he was the one training her.

Anyway, she was a big TV star at the time. I never understood why they killed her off completely.

I have a neighbor whose dog barks for hours nonstop when he isn’t home. It is way too much. And it doesn’t matter if you speak to him or complain to management (I have and others have also), the same shit happens.

The other neighbor has a dog and you never hear it, it’s very quiet, at least until the other neighbors dog begins barking for long periods of time. I guess the other dog gets annoyed too after a while, because he eventually starts barking after the other has been for a while. My sisters dog is like that also, very quiet. You leave him alone for hours and he’s silent (we check the camera). He’s been trained.

Christopher Reeve

Let's discuss American film actor Christopher Reeve.

Born into an affluent family, Reeve graduated from both Cornell and Julliard. His big break came when Katharine Hepburn personally cast him in a Broadway production of A Matter of Gravity.

However, his life changed forever when he was cast as the titular character in Richard Donner's Superman. Reeve worked alongside Gene Hackman, Margot Kidder, Jackie Cooper, Ned Beatty, Susannah York, Glen Ford, Terence Stamp, and Marlon Brando. Reeve would go on to appear in four Superman films all together.

Reeve also appeared in some excellent films: Somewhere in Time with Jane Seymour and Christopher Plummer and Merchant Ivory's The Bostonians with Vanessa Redgrave.

He appeared in good comedies: Deathtrap, Noise's Off, Switching Channels, and Speechless.

His last film before his terrible accident was the elegant Merchant Ivory-Mike Nichols produced The Remains of the Day with Anthony Hopkins, Emma Thompson, James Fox, and Hugh Grant.

Imagine he never had his accident and was alive today.

They invite me over for dinner, movies, etc. I get a little jealous when they go on date nights just the two of them. It is not healthy. They seem to be perfect and have everything. I'm struggling financially too. I do not think the software engineer likes me either.

Any advice?

Joan Crawford Hated Lucille Ball

Ball also clashed with Joan Crawford during the filming of "Lucy & The Lost Star." Not being used to the sitcom format, Crawford was filled with trepidation and allegedly turned to alcohol to calm her nerves, which greatly displeased the notoriously demanding and perfectionistic Ball. After Crawford failed to perform a Charleston dance routine to Ball's satisfaction, Ball loudly threatened to fire her in front of the entire cast and crew, causing Crawford to flee to her dressing room in tears. There, she uttered the infamous quote: "And they call ME a bitch!" It is said that Desi Arnaz and Vanda Barra gave Crawford pep talks which helped get her through the shoot, and the episode became one of the biggest hits of the season when aired.

Wendy Williams Claims to Be Married Again But Publicist Denies It

Wendy Williams’ excitement got the best of her.

The former daytime talk show host claimed to Hollywood Unlocked founder Jason Lee that she secretly married a New York Police Department officer named Henry, but her rep says she spoke too soon.

“That’s inaccurate,” William Selby tells Page Six exclusively. “She is excited about a new relationship and probably got carried away in conversation.”

As for whether Williams’ mystery man is, in fact, a cop, Selby adds, “Wendy doesn’t wish to disclose details at the moment.”

On Tuesday night, Lee recalled his phone call with Williams, 58, who told him she was flying to Los Angeles later this week but also had some other bombshell news.

“She says, ‘I’m married.’ I’m like, ‘What?’ She’s like, ‘I got married,'” the podcast host recalled of their back-and-forth.

“I’m like, ‘You got married when?’ And she’s like, ‘I got married last week.'”

Williams appears to have a penchant for police officers, as a 2019 report claimed she was dating a former cop and criminal justice expert named Dr. Darrin Porcher; however, he later denied the relationship.

“It’s flattering to hear, but it’s not the case,” he told us. “I’m in a relationship. I just worked security for her for a couple of weeks after she filed for divorce [from Kevin Hunter].”

While understandably in disbelief, Lee also shared that Williams told him she had instructed her publicist to keep her “entire family away from [her] except for [her] son for at least a year” and that her American Express credit card no longer works because her finances remain under Wells Fargo’s control.

The bank took hold of Williams’ money after her former financial manager Lori Schiller recommended a court-appointed guardian because she was of “unsound mind.”

“Please be advised that Wendy is not in agreement with the appointment of a financial guardian by the court,” Williams’ former attorney shared with Page Six in May. “Wendy has been very clear that she does not want a financial guardian to tell her what she can and cannot do with her money.”

Williams’ case against Wells Fargo remains ongoing, but a spokesperson for the bank previously denied “any allegations of improper actions with respect to Ms. Williams’ accounts.”

Trump stooges: what's in it for them?

I am genuinely surprised that Rubio, Paul and Grassley would go on TV -- even if it is the Fox News Infotainment channel -- with access to all the facts and with full knowledge of who Trump really is, and disparage the FBI. When his political career ends, with prison or death, what's in it for them?

Baltimore nine year old boy shoots and kills teen girl over a bottle of Gatorade

The family of a 15-year-old Baltimore girl who was allegedly shot dead by a 9-year-old boy over the weekend called on prosecutors to file criminal charges against the child, claiming that he intentionally killed their daughter over a bottle of Gatorade.

Nykayla Strawder’s relatives and friends held a vigil on Tuesday to honor the teen — and also to voice their frustration over the investigation into her death.

“I couldn’t describe to you how it feels to find my child on my porch, on her own porch, murdered,” Dontay Jones, Strawder’s father, said, according to reporting by WBAL-TV.

Baltimore police previously said that Nykayla and her 9-year-old neighbor were playing with a loaded gun on her front porch in the 600 block of Linnard Street in West Baltimore’s Edmondon Village on Saturday night when the youngster “accidentally” shot the teen in the head.

Nykayla was taken to a hospital, where she later died.

The boy was said to have dropped the gun and fled after the shooting. Police later determined that the firearm is registered to the 9-year-old’s family member who works as a security guard.

Under Maryland law, the accused pint-sized gunman cannot be criminally charged because of his age.

During Tuesday’s vigil honoring Nykayla, her father challenged the official version of events.

“(The 9-year-old boy) took my daughter’s Gatorade from her, and when she turned around and asked for her Gatorade, he raised that pistol to my child’s head and murdered her in cold blood. They were not playing with a gun at all,” Jones said.

Other family members claimed that the young neighbor had been feuding with Nykayla’s 11-year-old brother and allegedly come over planning to settle their dispute with a gun.

“That kid prematurely had an issue for weeks, and he came with a gun to hurt a little boy and he ended up finding the big sister doing the normal thing being a big sister do, telling him (her brother) will not come outside and he didn’t,” cousin Raymond Parks told Fox Baltimore. “And the boy pointed the gun at her because of it.”

Those who attended the vigil demanded that charges be brought against the 9-year-old, and also against his family for failing to secure the gun used in the shooting.

“How do you not notice your gun was missing?” There is no excuse, knowing there’s a child in the home and not keeping your gun hidden,” Jones told the Baltimore Sun.

Iranians have been enforcing transgenderism as a 'cure' for gayness, ever since their Ayatollah announced it as such in the 2000's. If one was caught being gay in Tehran, one is given the choice of either hanging from a crane or getting the surgery.

Iran was one of the transgender surgery capitals of the world before the recent fad took hold in the West. The US & UK are embracing Iran’s homophobic ways.
