Maine residents try to force quarantine of out-of-towners by cutting down tree, police say
A group of Maine residents apparently tried to forcibly quarantine their neighbors by cutting down a tree and blocking a roadway out of fear they might have the coronavirus.
A man who lived on Cripple Creek Road in Vinalhaven on an island off Maine left his residence to check on disrupted cable service when he came across a downed tree in the road, according to a Facebook post Saturday from the Knox County Sheriff's Office. He told police that when he got out of his car to inspect the tree, a group of people, some with guns, gathered around him and told him he needed to be quarantined.
"Believing the group may be there to harm him, [he] fled to his residence and told his roommates what he had found," the department said.
Elderly Woman ‘In Tears’ At Empty Supermarket Highlights Panic Buying Crisis
Countries around the world have witnessed unprecedented panic buying at supermarkets and pharmacies due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Aisles have been stripped bare every day as many try to get enough food to last them through a two week self-isolation.
However, there have been some people who have been greedier than others.
As a result, loads of shoppers have been left to get whatever is left and, in some cases, leave nearly empty handed with no idea how they'll get their groceries.
That was highlighted in a heartbreaking picture of an elderly woman in Australia standing in front of cleared out shelves that used to hold canned foods.
Channel 9's Seb Costello shared the picture on social media of the devastating reality that is facing many people across Australia and the world.
He reported the woman was left in tears at the bare aisles.

Gay Sanders staffer busted running anon Twitter account slurring Buttigieg & other candidates
Bernie Sanders’ former regional field director for Michigan, Ben Mora, has been fired after it was revealed he ran an anonymous Twitter account that slurred and insulted other Democratic presidential candidates. Many of the gay staffer’s tweets targeted out candidate Pete Buttigieg.
Mora, using the account @perma_ben, tweeted that Buttigieg “is what happens when the therapist botches the conversion.” In another tweet, he asserted he could “never trust buttigieg because he combined the natural devious disposition inherent in gay men with a bloodthirsty careerist drive.”
One of the most vicious tweets targeted Buttigieg’s spouse, Chasten.
“Chasten Buttigieg has the vibes of a housewife whose slow burning repression is leading to an inevitable psychotic break, mark my words in 10 years he will go missing and then resurface in Ft Lauderdale after getting busted for running a meth racket w a bunch of Guatemalan twinks,” he sent last October.
Other candidates were not spared from Mora’s take-downs. Female candidates were frequently targeted for their physical appearance.
Former gay porn star claims his father tried to make him have sex with his adult girlfriend at the age of 12 before having a drug-fuelled meltdown in shocking BBC4 documentary
A former gay porn star has told of how he was forced to try to have sex with his father's girlfriend at the age of 12, and was taunted by his father with homophobic insults when he failed.
Israeli Jonathan Agassi, whose real name is Yonatan Langer, burst on to the adult film scene in the late 2000s at the age of 23, after starring in 2009 landmark gay pornographic film 'Men of Israel'.
Filmmaker Tomer Heymann documented the life of the adult star for seven-years, detailing Agassi’s journey from prolific adult superstar to male escort, battling many demons, including drug addiction.
SCIENCE SAYS BULLIES MIGHT BE SO MEAN BECAUSE THEY LITERALLY HAVE LESS OF A BRAIN
If you’ve ever been bullied, at some point you must have wondered what was going on in the bully’s head to make them do anything from giving atomic wedgies to spreading vicious rumors — how could you not?
"Our findings support the idea that, for the small proportion of individuals with life-course-persistent antisocial behavior, there may be differences in their brain structure that make it difficult for them to develop social skills that prevent them from engaging in antisocial behavior. These people could benefit from more support throughout their lives," Christina Carlisi, of University College London in the UK, said in a press release. She and her colleagues recently published a study in The Lancet.
MRI scans measured the total surface area and thickness of the cerebral cortex, which is the same gray matter you see in zombie movies. The cerebral cortex is the epicenter of higher thought processes that include motivation and decision making — and it might be something lacking here that leads to decisions which are less than stellar.

An 11-year-old gave birth, Missouri police said. Three of her relatives are facing charges
Three family members are facing charges after an 11-year-old girl gave birth in her suburban St. Louis home, authorities said.
Police charged a 17-year-old with incest, statutory rape and statutory sodomy of a child, documents say, after he told investigators he did not know the girl was pregnant.
A man and a woman are each accused of child endangerment, and the woman faces an additional allegation of failing to provide medical care for the birth. The adult male triggered the investigation when he brought an infant, who had a temperature of 90 degrees and was still attached to the umbilical cord, to a hospital for treatment on Feb. 11.

Investigating the insidious rise of the gay incel
Much has been written about incels, mainly in the context of toxic masculinity, far-right radicalisation, and mental health. But very little has been written about the tiny proportion of gay men among them, and it’s worth asking: who are they?
This pattern was identified by Reddit user zanmato1109, who also happens to be a PhD candidate, and summarised in a mini-essay: The New Internalised Homophobia, or, Revenge of the Gay Incels.
“Repeated rejection leads some young men to concoct an unflattering, two-dimensional caricature of the group that spurned them, whether it’s women or gays” – @zanmato1109
Although he says he wouldn’t use the term ‘incel’ had he written it again today, the insightful post drew key parallels between the gay and straight men reframing their personal issues through the lens of a broader worldview. He tells me he noticed this happened often in the ‘gaybros’ community, which “started off with an internalised homophobia vibe” – “these posts complaining about the state of the gay community were written by guys who didn’t do well in the bar scene, and whose dates never turned into anything”. He found that their anger turned into a “moralising stance,” which frustrated him. “It was disheartening to read what were essentially homophobic, right-wing talking points repurposed as handful of disaffected gays’ wrongheaded coping mechanisms.”
In the same way that incel forums have become hotbeds of far-right ideology and misogyny, these gay incels often share similarly right-wing views and a hatred towards the potential partners rejecting them. “I don’t think we’re wrong to see some kind of parallel,” he continues. “In both cases, repeated rejection leads some young men to concoct an unflattering, two-dimensional caricature of the group that spurned them, whether it’s women or gays. In both cases, part of their attack is some kind of moralising about sexual promiscuity – particularly in online spaces.”
LGBTQ-inclusive gym forced to close after harassment from far-right group
The Canadian gym Queerflex, which is an LGBTQ-friendly gym designed for members of the LGBTQ community who felt uncomfortable in other gyms, has been forced to close after months of harassment from the far-right group, Defend Canada, formerly known as the Patriot Pride Canada Wide.
The group claimed that the founder of Queerflex was a “far left extremist [who] has opened up a training compound for domestic terrorists.”
As part of their harassment, the group published the address of the gym, as well as names and social media profiles of staff members who worked there, writing: “You can run but you can’t hide.”
Missouri Police Officer Told to 'Tone Down' Gayness Settles Discrimination Lawsuit for $10 Million
St. Louis County has agreed to a $10.25 million settlement with a gay police lieutenant who says he was passed over for promotion 23 times and was told to “tone down” his “gayness.”
The agreement with Keith Wildhaber was finalized Monday, hours after St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar announced he is retiring, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.
Although jurors awarded Wildhaber nearly $20 million in October, each side had reason to negotiate because Wildhaber could keep a larger share of the award by settling.
The gay men risking their health for the perfect body
Jeff Ingold, from LGBT charity Stonewall says it is "crucial" that we see more diverse representations of gay and bisexual men with different body types in the media.
"Not only would this help gay and bi men see themselves reflected in what they watch, it would also help break down harmful stereotypes that affect gay and bi men's body image and self-esteem."
But as it is, Jakeb says he still gets people online telling him they "wouldn't leave the house if they looked like me".
"I didn't go on pride marches and have bricks thrown at me to have the community we've got now," he says.
"We have equality, but we're horrible to each other."
