How Tumblr's adult content crackdown could alienate users
Tumblr says it is banning images and videos that feature "adult content," including pornography, from its platform. The change, which will start December 17, threatens to alienate some of the blogging website's most active communities.
The company said Monday that it will no longer allow any images or videos of sex acts, nor will it allow "real-life human genitals or female-presenting nipples." It will make exceptions for non-sexual content, including breastfeeding photos and "health-related situations," such as sex-reassignment surgeries and mastectomies.
Gay man sues NYC spa for trying to give him ‘a happy ending’
When 34-year-old gay New Jersey resident Ronnie Arnau went to the Living Fresh Men’s Spa in Chelsea, Manhattan for a massage last month, he expected “a normal massage.” But he claims the spa’s masseur began caressing his buttocks and genitals 10 minutes into the massage.
So now Arnau is suing for sexual assault.
According to a lawsuit filed in the Manhattan Supreme Court, masseur Pei Tian began focusing “exclusively on Arnau’s buttocks for an inordinate amount of time,” making Arnau very uncomfortable.
Police search for religious supplies store attacker
Police on Tuesday were searching for a man who they say sexually assaulted someone in a suburban St. Louis religious supplies store and fatally shot a customer before fleeing.
Authorities identified the woman who was killed Monday at the Catholic Supply of St. Louis store as Jamie Schmidt, of House Springs. The 53-year-old mother of three was active in her parish and sang in the choir, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.
St. Louis County police were searching for a man described as 5-foot-7 with a heavy build. They say he wore an ivy hat, sometimes known as a newsboy hat, during the attack and that he should be considered armed and dangerous. Police were seeking the public's help in finding him.

Evangelicals are boycotting these stores for Christmas to celebrate Jesus’ birth
Ever year the religious right boycotts various companies for Christmas because Jesus wouldn’t shop at a store that doesn’t advertise Christmas sales or something.
Evangelicals have used multiple reasons for their nonsense. Starbucks holiday cup didn’t specifically say “Christmas.” Target lets transgender people use the restroom. J. Crew doesn’t use nativity scene clipart to sell sweaters.
Now two anti-LGBTQ hate groups have issued their yearly “naughty or nice” list (despite Santa’s absence from the Bible) and the reasons they’ve targeted some companies is just as laughable.

Will Any Music Awards Show Get Representation For Women Right? None Have Yet.
On last night’s American Music Awards (AMAs), Taylor Swift doubled down on her voter registration message, Ciara and Missy Elliott leveled up, and Aretha Franklin finally got the tribute she deserved. Women were at the forefront of the show, which was a vast step forward from their massive under representation at the Grammys or the MTV VMAs and the number of awards they won was a step up from their Billboard Music Awards treatment. The AMAS did the best job representing women as performers and winners of any music awards show this year. They also showed us how far music has to go to fix its #MeToo and representation issues.
But digging a little deeper, the AMAs also highlight some serious areas that need work. First and foremost, let’s talk about the late XXXTentacion being nominated for two awards, and winning one that was broadcast in the show. Imagine the Golden Globes nominating Roman Polanski (or Woody Allen, or Kevin Spacey, or any number of high profile men accused of sexual misconduct) for an award this year, of all years. Imagine them giving it to him on television. And imagine that later on, when a woman nominated against him lauds his work, saying she’s a fan and it’s an honor to be in the same category as him. That’s essentially what happened with XXX’s win, and Camila Cabello’s subsequent lauding of him in her Best New Artist acceptance speech. XXX, who passed away earlier this year, may have been a talented artist and undoubtedly has legions of fans. But he is also accused of violent, disturbing abuse against a woman. We don’t have to celebrate abusers at our awards show, and to do so only tells women that their pain is not important. It was an especially bitter pill to swallow after weeks of the Kavanaugh confirmation battle. Music seems to think it can continue to exist in a bubble where #MeToo and support for the survivors of abuse are negligible.

Insufferable gay Trump supporter hurls racial slurs at Lyft driver, refuses to leave vehicle
Shawn Pepas Lettman is a Lyft driver and father of two from Brooklyn. Last weekend, he found himself the target of a racist attack by gay Trump supporter who refused to get out of his car.
It all started when a passenger leaving a gay club requested Lettman change the music in his car. Lettman declined the request and the passenger became irate, prompting Lettman to pull over.
In the video, the passenger can be seen screaming into his phone at Lyft customer service, hurling racial slurs at Lettman, making offensive threats, and refusing to get out of the car until he is refunded his $8.01 for the ride and police arrive so he can file a report.

Christian NCAA member Azusa Pacific bans all same-sex relationships
Azusa Pacific University, an NCAA Division II school with ties to the Christian church, has reinstated a previously suspended ban on same-sex relationships, sending LGBTQ students, student-athletes, members of the administration and advocates scrambling.
The school’s Board of Trustees late last week sent a notice returning the school’s policy to say “Students may not engage in a romanticized same-sex relationship.”
Some Christians have long held that the Bible bans sex between people of the same gender. This policy goes even further, banning all romantic same-sex relationships, even those that don’t include sex. The school’s policy already bans sex outside of wedlock, this policy simply specifically targets gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans and queer people.
God has yet to weigh in on the decision.

Largest Ohio Catholic diocese to expand abusive priests list
Ohio's largest Roman Catholic diocese will join three other dioceses in the state and release a list of priests who have been removed from their posts because of sexual abuse and misconduct allegations.
The Diocese of Cleveland's list will include the names of abusive priests, even if they are now dead, church officials said Tuesday.
The diocese since 2002 has been announcing the names of clerics removed from ministry because of sex abuse allegations, said diocesan spokesman Jim Armstrong. Its website includes 29 names, with some of the allegations going back decades.
"It would be wrong to suggest that the Diocese of Cleveland has not committed to release the names of clerics accused of sexually abusing a minor or that it desires to keep secret the names of such clerics," Armstrong said.
