Parents Are Not Okay
School is only just starting and already kids are being quarantined in mind-boggling numbers: 20,000 across the state of Mississippi, 10,000 in a single district in Tampa, Florida. They’re getting sick too, with hospitalizations of kids under 17 across the country up at least 22 percent in the past month, by the CDC’s count, and each new week sets pediatric hospitalization records for the entire pandemic. The rapid increase of COVID-19 cases among kids has shattered last year’s oft-repeated falsehood that kids don’t get COVID-19, and if they do, it’s not that bad. It was a convenient lie that was easy to believe in part because we kept most of our kids home. With remote learning not an option now, this year we’ll find out how dangerous this virus is for children in the worst way possible.
It’s enough to bring a parent to tears, except that every parent I know ran out a long time ago—I know I did. Ran out of tears, ran out of energy, ran out of patience. Through these grinding 18 months, we’ve managed our kids’ lives as best we could while abandoning our own. It was unsustainable then, it’s unsustainable now, and no matter what fresh hell this school year brings, it’ll still be unsustainable.

What can — or should — we learn from porn?
"Porn is a potent force for pushing back on common perceptions of Asian men as desexualized, or non-sexual, in American culture," argues Jesh Fiszel, another Asian American creator-performer, who says he was inspired by the now-retired Long's endeavors. "Our content has subtle racial subtext to inform our audience…while also allowing people to watch it" for pure erotic pleasure.
"In terms of whether it's possible for pornography to influence people's self-acceptance, in terms of how their bodies look and their sexual orientations, or their acceptance of others, a few research articles substantiate that idea," adds Emily Rothman, a Boston University professor of community health and proponent of porn literacy studies. "Anecdotally, people have told me that is true, too."

Catholic schools can’t fire teachers for being gay
Last Friday, U.S. District Judge Max Cogburn ruled that the Charlotte Catholic High School and the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Charlotte, North Carolina wrongfully fired gay substitute drama and English teacher Lonnie Billard in 2014.
Cogburn ruled that the school violated federal protections against sex discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. The judge wrote that the school’s actions weren’t protected by constitutional rights to religious freedom. He also ruled that “the school’s action didn’t fit into exemptions to labor law that give religious institutions leeway to require certain employees to adhere to religious teachings,” the EDGE Media Network reported.

LGBTQ youth are scared to go back to school.
Between the pandemic and the barrage of anti-LGBTQ laws being passed in state legislatures, this increased anxiety is no surprise.
Texas law states schools must teach that “that homosexuality is not a lifestyle acceptable to the general public and that homosexual conduct is a criminal offense.” Other “No Promo Homo” laws exist in Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Mississippi.

Atlanta mom says school ‘segregated’ daughter into black-only classes: lawsuit
A black mother is blasting her daughter’s Georgia elementary school for “segregating” African American students to give them “more opportunities” amid a series of controversies tied to critical race theory.
Posey claims she only found out about the situation after the principal said her daughter couldn’t be placed in a certain teacher’s class.
“She said that’s not one of the black classes, and I immediately said, ‘What does that mean?’ I was confused. I asked for more clarification. I was like, ‘We have those in the school?’ And she proceeded to say, ‘Yes. I have decided that I’m going to place all of the black students in two classes,’” Posey said.

LGBTQ Adults Are Facing Hunger At Almost Twice The Rate As Others, New Data Shows
LGBT adults living in the U.S. are nearly twice as likely to be experiencing food insecurity during the pandemic than non-LGBT adults, according to new survey data from the U.S. Census Bureau.
Of the more than 64,000 people who responded to the bureau's latest Household Pulse Survey, just over 13% of LGBT adults reported living in a household that experienced food insecurity in the past seven days, compared to 7.2% of non-LBGT adults.

Florida will PAY parents to move their kids to private schools if they're 'bullied' for not wearing face masks
Florida officials have promised to pay for parents to move their children to private schools if they are 'bullied' for not wearing face masks in schools.
The Florida Department of Education approved an emergency rule Friday to hand out private school vouchers to any parent wanting to take their children out of public schools that have enforced mask mandates.
Such vouchers, offered through the Hope Scholarship, are usually used to move children from schools where they are the victims of bullying.

DC Comics Joins the Pander Parade and You Should Feel Insulted
Do they actually care about you? Sure, but specifically they care about how much money you have in your account to fork over.
Case in point, they know that if they create a new character with all the LGBT fixins’ that this character will likely go ignored. It won’t really move the needle in terms of press coverage and likely won’t sell a lot of volumes.
Take an already popular character and turn them LGBT and you have an easy payday. It’ll print headlines resulting in free publicity and you’ve got people purchasing the comic either to show support for LGBT causes or buying the comic in order to be able to comment and review on it for your own following. Either way, DC is going to cash out on this.
And that’s really the bottom line here. Is Tim Drake being bisexual going to make other people have more reverence for the LGBT community? Likely not. DC may see an immediate sales bump but not a long-term one. To be honest, it’s going to cause far fewer people to relate to the character as most of the globe isn’t in the LGBT community. Not that it mattered. Comic book sales have been on the decline, thus making the call to retcon Drake into a bisexual all the easier.
