Why Can’t We Muster More Courage For Persecuted LGBTQ People in Africa?

Jeri’s Trans/LGBTQIA Queer Reflections From The City Different - Santa Fe, NM

image There has been a huge international outcry against Russia’s anti-gay propaganda law and rightly so. Sadly, the outcry against what’s happening in Nigeria and Uganda has not measured up. Right now, in Nigeria, new anti-LGBTQ legislation passed and signed in the dead of night has unleashed not a wave of protest but rather vigilantes who are singling out suspected gays and beating them up. Mobs have become so unruly that they are demanding immediate execution of those arrested in the Islamic areas where the local Sharia-based justice system is already threatening to kill those convicted. Yes that’s right the mobs want to execute gays without them even being convicted in a rabidly homophobic court.

In Nigeria there are potential targets for boycotts and protests. Nigeria is a large exporter of oil. Yet, I have not heard any calls for a boycott of Western companies involved in the Nigerian oil industry…

Long Beach’s transgender youth gaining recognition – The Orange County Register

Jeri’s Trans/LGBTQIA Queer Reflections From The City Different - Santa Fe, NM

Long Beach, California is becoming more welcoming for Transgender Youth…

This is a dilemma faced less often by Transgender students thanks to California’s Transgender Students’ Rights Law

Students face tough questions in Long Beach schools every day. But one question advocates hope they never have to ask is, “Am I safe using the bathroom?”

This month, an anti-discrimination bill, AB 1266, went into effect to allow students to use facilities and participate in activities that are consistent with the gender they identify with. That includes bathrooms, locker rooms, sports teams and competitions, regardless of the gender listed on the student’s school records.

Though the number of trans youth in Long Beach schools is unknown, Ethan LoBianco, 18, said there is a robust community of trans students at Wilson High School, where he’s a senior.

As a transgender student, LoBianco faced a question of whether or not he would be accepted…

Horrifying Devil Baby Terrorizes New York City

This was creepy!!

NewsFeed

Behold, the most disturbing-yet-hilarious thing you’ll see all week. In this viral video, which racked up more than 4.8 million views in one day, a freakish animatronic infant — known as the “devil baby” — terrorized unsuspecting New Yorkers. Cruising around town in a remote controlled stroller, the devil baby pops up expectedly to scream, vomit, growl and give the finger, sending even the most stoic bystanders into fits of confusion and terror.

Turns out this is all part of a viral marketing stunt to promote the upcoming horror flick Devil’s Due. So, as with any viral campaign, the reactions we see might be staged, but it’s much more entertaining to believe they’re genuine.

The movie debuts this Friday, Jan. 17, but if it’s even half as terrifying as this video, we’ll probably pass.

Berrendo Middle School shooting

By now I believe everyone has heard about the Berrendo Middle School shooting. I’ve read several reports about the incident from CNN, CBS, NY Daily News just to name a few. I wish I had something uplifting to say but I don’t…

After reading these reports it doesn’t seem like the seventh-grade suspect had a motive. There are rumors going around that he was bullied and tormented by students but nothing supports that. CNN has a line in their report from one of the shooter friends and it simply says, He wasn’t bullied and “he just ran in there and just shot, really,”. The “suspected” shooter even went as far as warning some of his “friends” not to come to school because he was going to shoot. SMH!

I’m glad that I read the official reports by these stations versus opinionated snippets because I was going to get on here and GO OFF. The few paragraphs that I read practically said that the two victims in this shooting caused it on themselves.  AND THAT’S NOT THE CASE.  Don’t get me wrong bullying is not ok nor is it a new thing that’s happening. But why are they already trying to make a case for this child by defending his actions and the victims , one shot in the FACE AND NECK and the other shot in the shoulder, aren’t even out of the HOSPITAL!

They interviewed the suspect’s parents and their like…. We don’t know where he got a 22- GAUGE SHOTGUN FROM. WHAT THE FUCK!!!! REALLY! This worries me because I am relocating my family to New Mexico. And we do have a young child that will be in school.

What the hell is this world becoming when you can’t even send your children to school without worrying about their safety? What set this kid off? Was it lack of supervision from the parents? The school?  Or is this going to be another case of blaming video games or media for this incident….?

“Lesbian Erotica” by Eva Masters, Reunion a Love Story

CLUTCHING MY PEARLS!!

So –LOL- I can’t stop smiling so hard. I just read “Lesbian Erotica” by Eva Masters, Reunion a Love Story. And um … DAMN! This is definitely something that I should have read while I was at home with my lady. Cause um…… DAMN! Lol, this book is like a lesbian remixed version of Zane. Don’t get it twisted there is only one Zane, but with this book Eva Masters is on the same line. I have never read any books by Eva Masters but by the looks of this one I wouldn’t mind. I only did a little preview passage but I want more of an input on it before I actually buy it.

I love having books such as this one that focuses on the LGBTQ community. I also heard that Zane came out with a book for Lesbians. I’m going to read up on that one as well. Have you read this book? How was it and is it worth buying? What other books are out there like that? Because lesbian want to read erotica books to… at least I do lol.

Signed the Dominant Lesbian whose wife holds out A LOT! lol

Peace
