Here’s why COVID-19 has a vaccine after 1 year and HIV doesn’t after nearly 40 years 

 

The rapid development of several COVID-19 vaccines has compelled numerous web commenters to accusingly ask why the same hasn’t been done for HIV, a pandemic that has lasted nearly 40 years longer than the coronavirus.

However, a closer look at the different virology of coronavirus and HIV helps explain why the former has a soon-to-be widely available vaccine and the latter doesn’t.

The aforementioned critics often claim that the lack of an HIV vaccine is due to the fact that HIV has most affected men and trans women who have sex with men, Black people, people of color, and intravenous drug users — marginalized people who tend to have less money and political power. Thus, the lack of an HIV vaccine can seem like a conspiratorial way to let these communities die off.

Jhené Aiko Explains Why She Stopped Using the N-Word in Her Music 

 

There seems to be unnecessary confusion surrounding the use of the N-word, especially when it comes to crafting lyrics. This moved Jhené Aiko to give a deep explanation as to why she removed the word from her music.

Although her ability to look like multiple races has undoubtedly been beneficial to her public persona, Aiko doesn't want to abuse a privilege that she didn't ask for. So out of respect for herself, friends, and fans, she decided to stop using the N-word in her music because it could make people uncomfortable. Aiko explains that she eradicated the word from her writing process years ago, but this discussion made the news relevant.

United Airlines fills NFL, MLB flights with ‘young, white, blond’ female crew: suit 

 

Maybe they should change their slogan to “Fly the Friendly — and very white — Skies.”

United Airlines packs its planes with young, white, blond, blue-eyed female crew — all chosen for their “sexual allure” — whenever the National Football League and Major League Baseball take charter flights, a new lawsuit alleges.

Meanwhile, flight attendants who are too old and too dark are barred from the plum routes, according to Bloomberg News, which reported the suit on Saturday.

Seattle Schools to Include LGBTQ+ In Curriculum 

 

The Seattle Public School District has taken a big step to creating an inclusive and affirming environment for all students. The district recently passed a resolution calling for LGBTQ+ affirming curriculum and gender neutral restroom facilities.

"We are the first in Washington to mandate this for our curriculum," Zachary DeWolf, Seattle School Board President, tells Out. "Young people, LGBTQIA+ or not, deserve to see how broad and dynamic American history—which is inclusive of LGBTQIA+ history—truly is. Requiring LGBTQIA+ inclusive curriculum in Seattle Public Schools will positively impact our region today and seven generations into the future."

How Did Four Young Black Boys Become Hollywood Stars During the Height of Jim Crow? 

 

As it turns out, Sunshine Sammy was a race man. Farina and Stymie too, and even Buckwheat for a minute or so.

This may be hard to fathom, considering the designation was generally applied, back around the '20s, to men who exemplified the most righteous and upstanding attributes of black people, and advocated for fair and dignified treatment. It’s also hard to fathom because, at the time, they were just young black boys.

But they were young black boys with starring roles in Hollywood, and among the most popular performers of their time. There weren’t very many blacks of any age getting any sort of featured screen time back then, at least not in roles that didn’t demean the race. Thus, these young people were heralded in the black press, and even by the NAACP, as some of the leading exemplars of blackness, well before any of them were old enough to drive.

Sunshine Sammy, Farina, Stymie and Buckwheat were the principal black characters throughout the 20-year run of the Our Gang film series. The black community treated them (respectively, Ernie Morrison, Allen Hoskins, Matthew Beard and Billie Thomas) like rock stars. But their lives were much more complicated than the movie roles ever let on. Their regard within the black community would be transformed decades later, as the Our Gang franchise lived on years after its heyday.

Next season of Harley Quinn will explore her romance with Poison Ivy 

 

Supervillain / anti-hero Harley Quinn is a fan favourite in the LGBTQ community, and not least for her relationship with fellow villain Poison Ivy. And although the cartoon series on the DC Universe streaming service has hinted at their relationship, it hasn’t been explicit with it.

But in the second season, which began airing on Friday (3 April), this is set to change, with a small moment in the trailer showing Harley and Ivy briefly holding hands.

And speaking to Metro, the show’s showrunner, Patrick Schumacker has confirmed that this relationship will be explored. “It will develop more, and it’s definitely going to evolve into, I think, what a lot of people are hoping it will,” he explained.

Campuses shutter for coronavirus, leaving some LGBTQ students with nowhere to go 

 

When she heard that her university campus would be shutting down after spring break due to the coronavirus pandemic, Alexis feared her life could fall apart.

She wasn’t able to afford campus housing this semester and is living instead in a nearby homeless shelter. But she depended on her school’s health and fitness center for daily showers and her school’s library for quiet study time.

“My whole life revolves around the university, and the university is closed,” said Alexis, a 34-year-old trans woman and student at the University of Eastern Michigan. (A university spokesperson told Vox that campus dining halls are still open for “grab and go” meals in accordance with a Monday order from Gov. Gretchen Whitmer; however, other services like the rec center are closed.)

When her school decided to shift to online classes, which meant finding a public space to study and attend classes, she knew that wouldn’t be possible in the shelter. She also knew that other public spaces would likely soon close to promote social distancing. She worried she may have to move back home with her father, who doesn’t support her transition and doesn’t use her name or correct pronouns.

“My relationship with my parents is not good, particularly my dad,” Alexis said. “My parents in general are just not very accepting of me, but [being] trans is kinda like the straw that broke the camel’s back.”

Jamaica’s ban on same-sex activity ruled “incompatible with basic human rights standards” 

 

Jamaica’s colonial-era ban on same-sex relations has been ruled “incompatible” with human rights standards.

This week, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights – an organisation that aims to protect human rights in the American hemisphere – recommended the law be repealed and for the country to reparations to the plaintiffs in the case.

Same-sex activity has been criminalised in Jamaica since colonial times under the Offences Against the Person Act. Although the law has rarely been enforced in recent times, its existence perpetuates negative stereotypes of queer people.

Sony is planning to make Spider-Man bisexual and give him a boyfriend 
 

A bisexual Spider-Man could be coming to a cinema near you if producers at Sony get their way.

Movies, games and TV site We Got This Covered say reliable sources confirm Sony is developing a live action Spider-Verse movie.

The movie will unite current Spider-Man actor Tom Holland with his predecessors, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.

The sources also say that Sony particularly wants to get Garfield back as they want him to portray a bisexual version of the hero. And they plan to give him a boyfriend.

‘Nearly all’ LGB kids are using online porn to learn about their sexuality
 

Lesbian, gay and bi kids are using online porn to make up for ‘rubbish’ sex education in schools and to discover their sexuality.

That’s one of the main findings of a new report by the British Board of Film Classification. The BBFC is the UK organization responsible for rating all films – including pornography – to make sure they are age appropriate.

Researchers found that some children start accessing porn as young as seven. At that age they often find it by chance.

But by the time they reach their mid teens they are using porn deliberately. In particular they use it to answer their questions about sex as well as for sexual gratification.

Similarly, nearly all the lesbian, gay or bisexual (LGB) teens in the study had learned more about their sexuality by watching pornography.

Moreover, several had only realised they are lesbian, gay or bi by watching porn.

There Is No Such Thing as 'Equal but Different' Gender Roles 

 

Religious groups are often at the forefront of upholding gender as predetermined and loaded with a set of immutable obligations. Seemingly in response to pressure to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment in Utah, the Church of Latter-Day Saints this month produced a statement regarding Mormons and feminism that echoes Schlafly’s concerns about upholding gender roles:

“Gender is an important part of who we are?—both before, during, and after this life. Men and women are equal?—one is not superior to the other. They are also different, with different roles within a family.”

What the statement doesn’t say is that these “different roles” in a religious context are generally that of executive and manager, with men as head of the family, overseeing all executive decisions, and women as coordinators, taking on the work of implementing those plans on a day-to-day basis. Anyone who has ever worked in an office understands that those roles are not equal and recognize this language as the same a CEO uses when insisting that every employee is valuable. What the boss isn’t saying is that some employees are absolutely more valuable than others and the entire corporate system is built around a hierarchy in which respect very often only flows upward. Erasing gender lines differentiating those in charge from those taking orders overthrows the entire system, and even criticism insisting that women are already equal and don’t really need these protections reads as fearful of what happens to the hierarchy if we remove dividers we’ve created between the roles of women and the roles of men.

Students win court case against school that suspended them for wearing rainbow clothes 

 

South Korean students attending the Presbyterian University and Theological Seminary have won a court battle after the university suspended them for wearing rainbow clothes.

The students were initially suspended last year, after they wore rainbow clothing to a university chapel on International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism and Transphobia.

The students wore the clothes to show their support for the LGBTQ community. However, the university was worried it would be seen as endorsing homosexuality, so they suspended the students.

Another study shows homophobic language isn’t linked to rejection of gay athletes 

 

Another new study from Monash University again demonstrates that athletes using gay slurs don’t mean to convey messages of homophobia to their teammates, and in fact believe their teams would be welcoming places for gay athletes.

The study focused on 146 semi-professional ice hockey players in Australia. The sample group included a good mix of players from North America, Europe and Australia.

One of the most illuminating parts of the study looked at why athletes use gay slurs. Some of the results:

55% because they want to make people laugh
46% think the language is normal, so no one thinks about it
6% want to insult or bully others who are gay
1% say they are homophobic

I’m Gay. So Why Don’t I Belong to ‘Gay Culture?’ 

 

I'm a gay transgender man, though I tend to keep the "transgender" part under wraps most of the time. I also live in a fairly small and conservative town. This makes talking about my childhood awkward unless I just say "my parents grew up in the city so we didn't really do a lot of outdoorsy stuff.” It's true without being too detailed, so that response is usually enough to get some pressure off me.

Anyway, I don't really have much interest in certain things considered part of "gay culture.” I watch Drag Race and follow some past contestants on social media. I feel a certain glee when characters in fiction I already like turn out to be LGBTQ. And while I'm not too familiar with the history of the Pride movement, I would love to learn more about it.

But that's about the extent of it. I simply cannot even pretend I like Katy Perry or Will & Grace. I've tried watching Sex and the City only to wonder if I'm supposed to like any of the characters. I'm basically someone who's been described as "Judas Priest gay.” Is there something I'm missing that's supposed to help me enjoy these things? Does this sound like a matter of preferring documentaries over other genres? Or is this just not as uncommon as I probably think?
