Prostitution Legal In The US? New Bill Could Make Vermont The Next Nevada
A new bill introduced by progressive lawmakers in the Vermont Legislature looks to decriminalize adult prostitution in the state while maintaining strict human trafficking laws to protect victims, especially those under the age of 18.

Kanye West joins stadium “prayer rally” with some of America’s most anti-LGBTQ activists
Rapper Kanye West announced he will appear at Awaken2020, a stadium-sized prayer rally hosted by some of the nation’s most anti-LGBTQ religious conservatives. After West’s announcement so many people rushed online to get free tickets to the event, the group’s website crashed.
West, who’s erratic behavior has seen him suddenly becoming a rightwing Christian and devout worshipper of Donald Trump, has been pushing his new gospel album recently. One of the songs is an ode to Chick-fil-A, the fast-food chain most frequently identified with religious controversy over LGBTQ rights.

Stephen King slammed for 'ignorant' tweet about not considering 'diversity' when voting for the Oscars
Famed writer Stephen King has stirred up controversy after admitting he “would never consider diversity in matters of art,” a remark made in reference to his status as a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) voting on Oscar contenders. His remarks come a day after the 2020 Oscar nominations were announced, prompting complaints that women and people of color were largely overlooked. Many critics bemoaned the exclusion of women like Greta Gerwig from the Best Director category, while Harriet’s Cynthia Erivo spoke out about being the only person of color to be nominated across four acting categories.
We are bullying someone because they are putting the quality of work before race, sex or creed. Isn't that how equality works? You can't expect to be rewarded because you are diverse. Diversity in film is at an infancy and it takes experience and hard work to establish quality. Haven't we already doled out enough pittance awards? Just have fun proving them wrong. 14-Jan-2020

A 35-year-old gay newlywed named Christopher McKinney died in University Hospital early Sunday morning after getting into a fight with a bouncer at Nowhere, an LGBTQ-friendly bar in Louisville, Kentucky. Some bar patrons say that Nowhere has a troubling history of callously handling patrons.
The bouncer was escorting McKinney out of the bar for “unruly behavior.” On the way out, the two got into a fight and the bouncer knocked McKinney out. Police investigators say there’s no evidence of a hate crime and have withheld the bouncer’s identity for the time being. No charges have been filed.
Here's How You Can Stream 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' Online
When Buffy the Vampire Slayer hit the airwaves in 1997 it was an instant hit. Based on a movie of the same name and starring Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy, the show was a fun, fierce change of pace. We were told that in every generation a slayer was born, and Buffy was ours.
Buffy not only learned to embrace her role as a vampire slayer, but she also surrounded herself with a group of friends to help her through. She and this “Scooby Gang” took care of each other and faced all the evil that came their way.
The Supreme Court will hear 2 major cases about when religious schools can ignore civil rights laws
The Supreme Court announced on Wednesday that it would hear a pair of cases concerning the “ministerial exemption” to employment discrimination laws. Broadly speaking, the “ministerial exemption” provides that religious “ministers” are not protected by civil rights laws in their workplace — so a church could, for example, fire its preacher because the preacher is black.
People Are Freaking Out About the Dicks on TV This Week
I’m just going to put it out there: I don’t watch enough television as someone who writes about pop culture. To be fair to myself though, there’s too much television to watch. One just can’t know all of the good shows on television. Nor which shows may not be good but that you should watch because … reasons. Thank god for Twitter.
The thing about Twitter is that when something good is happening on a show, someone’s going to tweet about it. And a lot.

Or a still. Especially when its explicit.
