Enough With The Lesbian Period Dramas 

 

There’s a pretty standard set of stereotypes when it comes to lesbian fashion. Plaid, snapbacks, Blundstones, and keys hanging off carabiners all make the cut. But looking at the way Hollywood has gone about depicting sapphic women, you might as well throw petticoats and corsets in there, too.

The film industry has developed a fascination bordering on obsession with moody-yet-sexy lesbian period dramas. On Friday, Ammonite, which features Kate Winslet as a dour paleontologist and Saoirse Ronan as a young woman who woos Winslet out of her hard shell, will become the latest addition to this obsession. It’s set in 1840, because of course it is.

Perhaps the most telling sign that these films are trying to soften their portrayal of lesbianism that no one ever has to say the word “lesbian.” Or even “sapphic.” Nevermind the nuance of a nice “bisexual.” The women desire and pine and exchange longing glances by a windswept beach with moody gray skies, but they don’t speak plainly of what’s going on. This makes sense to some extent, since historically these desires weren’t allowed in public life, leading to a lot of coded behavior and clandestine relationships. These are women overcoming societal expectations to follow their passions — they don’t need labels, right?

Two More Trans or Gender-Nonconforming People Killed in U.S. 

 

The number of transgender and gender-nonconforming people who’ve died by violence in the U.S. this year has increased to at least 36.

The figure reflects two deaths that occurred several months ago but have just come to the attention of national activists. Lea Rayshon Daye, a 28-year-old Black trans woman, was found unresponsive in the Cuyahoga County Jail in Cleveland August 30 and died shortly thereafter. She had been held in the jail since mid-May. While her death remains under investigation, the Human Rights Campaign has added her to its list of those who’ve died due to violence.

Daye was initially misgendered by jail officials. Her death was the second one at the jail in two months over the summer, Cleveland Scene reports, and activists consider the facility a dangerous place, especially for members of marginalized populations.

“Transgender people are being murdered across the United States, and the City of Cleveland has one of the highest rates based on our population,” Maya Simek of Equality Ohio said in a statement to the Scene and other local media. “The system that continues to fail Black, brown, and LGBTQ+ Ohioans is completely inept when interacting with those at the intersection of race and LGBTQ+ identity.”

THE LGBTQ MOVEMENT FALTERED 

 

LGBTQ acceptance is eroding even among young people. What are we going to do about it?

By Adam Zivo

There is some very bad news that not nearly enough people are talking about. Acceptance of the LGBTQ community is significantly declining in the United States and has been for several years now. Almost two years ago, a national annual survey by GLAAD found that, since 2016, Americans have become much more uncomfortable with LGBTQ folks. Though the report has since become slightly dated, little research has been done on the issue since. Other statistics, such as consistent increases in anti-LGBTQ hate crimes, suggest that the problem has not abated and may even be getting worse.

Despite the seriousness of this issue, there appears to be little awareness within the LGBTQ community that its public support is eroding. This ignorance within the wider community is mirrored by a lack of serious analysis by queer leaders and researchers. That needs to change.

And let’s not fool ourselves that this is a US-only problem. While it’s unclear how much this backlash is mirrored in Canada and Western Europe (which share similar historical trajectories on LGBTQ rights), both of these regions have also seen notable increases in anti-LGBTQ hate crimes – so there is good reason to be pessimistic. However, only real research focused on social attitudes will give us clarity. For whatever reason, this research isn’t being done in earnest.

Teenager Dies in Hospital Two Weeks After Brutal Rape Left Her Paralyzed 

 

A19-year-old woman in India has died two weeks after being gang raped by four men in a brutal attack that had left her paralyzed.

The teenager, who has not been named, died at New Delhi's Safdarjung Hospital on Tuesday following the assault by the group in Uttar Pradesh's Hathras district.

Police said the woman had been left with spinal injuries after she tried to fight off her attackers.

Her death comes just weeks after Newsweek reported how a teenage girl suffering from COVID-19 in India was raped on the way to hospital by a bogus ambulance driver.

The teenager, who has not been named, was allegedly attacked by the man in the Pathanamthitta district of Kerala.

For Some Black People, The Term 'Latinx' Is Another Form of Erasure 

 

A conversation-shifting hashtag #LatinidadIsCancelled, started by Afro-Indigenous (Zapotec) writer Alan Pelaez Lopez, outlines just how mestizx, white-centering, anti-Black, anti-Indigenous, and anti-queer the culture remains. (This was the first of a few examinations of anti-Blackness and Latinidad as they arose in popular culture, and the one which summed it up most cohesively.) This has prompted scholars, activists, and everyday Afro-Latinx individuals to reconsider their use of the word Latinx, as well as the "Afro-" or "Black" label placed before it, and whether ethnicity itself is enough to identify with Latinidad (a term used to describe the “shared culture” of Latinxs).

“For those who embrace Latinidad, it's a double-edged sword,” said Zaire Dinzey-Flores, a member of Black Latinas Know Collective and an associate professor of Latino and Caribbean Studies and Sociology at Rutgers University. “For those who don't fit the image that has been boosted by this term [Latinx] and this concept [of Latinidad], it almost works as a violent term… toward those of us—and I’ll say us because I’ll include myself in that—who cannot exist outside of the violence of even the production of Latin America.”

Bright Light Bright Light Says He's Tired of Feeling 'Invisible' to the Gay Community 

 

Even in a community outwardly campaigning for inclusion and acceptance, exclusion and judgement still exist on a personal level. Now, Bright Light Bright Light is shedding a light on his experience with that phenomenon within the LGBTQ community.

“Feeling like I belonged within the gay community I think has been a bit of a struggle," he said. "The LGBTQ+ community is such a vast umbrella; everyone is so different and trying to work out where you belong within that is hard. It kind of presumes that everybody queer gets on with each other, which they don’t, and that everyone is alike, which they’re not.”

Thomas also said that he wasn't considered "body-appropriate" to some in the community, which made him constantly feel like he was an outsider within a space built for him. “It doesn’t matter because those people don’t matter," he explained. "But I found that a huge struggle -- feeling invisible or not welcome in queer spaces -- even more heart-breaking than not being welcome in heterosexual spaces, because these spaces are there for everybody that needs them.”

Gay People Do Not Have License to Weaponize Homophobic Slurs 

 

San Francisco, it turns out, is not all flowers and gentle people. Livable California, the statewide anti-density organization with headquarters in the city, recently used a homophobic slur about my coworker and me. In a July 9 response to someone else’s tweet on the topic of housing, Isaiah Madison, a member of the board of directors of Livable California, wrote:

"I don’t get paid by Livable California Mr. Anonymous. I fucking wish I did though lol. Maybe Abundant Housing can hire me like they did the other brown &black faggots to push for new housing on vacant parcels of land/strip malls once y’all get the fuck off of my community’s homes[.]"

Racist Verbal Attack on 3 Black Women at California Beach Caught on Video 

 

Three Black women say they were out for a morning run at Dockweiler State Beach in Playa Del Rey when they were subjected to a racist verbal attack.

Footage of a portion of the Sunday incident, which has gone viral, shows the woman in question on the phone in an attempt to get police on the scene.

"I need a paramedic," she's heard saying. "I need an ambulance. My environment has been harmed by this African Black person. … This African, Black lies!" The woman then claims that she was "just attacked" from behind, with the women heard swiftly correcting her.

Painters In Kenosha Are Covering Up Black Lives Matter Messages With Murals About “Love” And “Unity” 

 

Deshauntis stepped outside and surveyed the scene in his hometown. In the aftermath of days of protests over the police shooting of a Black man, dozens of people had come to paint the city’s boarded-up downtown in bright, colorful murals. A man was singing folk music. A local church was handing out big cups of free strawberry lemonade.

"I see the effort," Deshauntis said, tightly. He added, "I don’t really see a lot of Black people out here."

And the murals — they didn’t say “Black Lives Matter.” The message across all of downtown Kenosha, where some buildings had been scorched during the protests and others reduced to still-smoking rubble, was about love. That’s what people were painting almost everywhere: “Love is the answer.”

“I support the protests,” John, who like other people interviewed for this story asked not to have his last name used, told BuzzFeed News. “I do not support the violence and the anarchy.”

He pointed, though, to the words “No Justice, No Peace,” a common rallying cry of the Black Lives Matter movement. “I totally disagree with this,” he said. “That’s not the way it goes. Justice and peace I agree with, but when it’s worded this way, that is not the way to handle it. Otherwise we’ll continue to have anarchy.”

Pride Banners Incite Furor in Utah Town and Are Effectively Banned 

 

The City Council in Heber City, Utah, has approved limitations on what banners can be hung on city-owned light and street posts after receiving complaints about LGBTQ+ Pride flags.

People in and around the town of 16,000 have called the flags “odd,” “political,” and “disturbing,” The Salt Lake Tribune reports, and wondered if allowing Pride flags would mean the city would have to allow Nazi or Confederate flags — which no one has tried to display. The outcry led the council to consider the ordinance, which it adopted unanimously Tuesday.

City Council member Mike Johnston said he did not object to Pride flags but worried they would draw an “ugly response.” “That’s what really bothers me,” he said. “We don’t actually have a way to prevent the ugliness.”

Poll reveals 61% of black Americans want the police to remain in their neighborhoods - despite calls to defund them 

 

The findings come in a poll by Gallup which also found that 61% want the police presence in their neighborhoods to remain the same despite calls to defund and reform policing across the country.

The majority of black Americans want to retain their local police force and for officers to spend the same amount of time in their neighborhoods as they currently do.

The poll suggests that roughly equal proportions of black Americans would also like the police to spend more time in their area (20%) as those who would like them to spend less time there (19%).

The figures are relatively similar to those in other demographics with 71% of white Americans and 67% of all U.S. adults wanting to retain the status quo, including 71% of white Americans.

Why Hispanic business owners are urging you to BUY-cott Goya products 

 

The Goya Foods boycott is an insult to Hispanics, America’s largest minority group. Politicians and pundits — some Hispanic, many others painfully woke-white — are calling for a boycott of the largest Hispanic food manufacturer and distributor in the nation, a company that employs more than 4,000 people.

The Bodega and Small Business Association, which represents thousands of New York City bodegas, is not taking this lying down. We are urging our stores and customers to stock up on all of Goya’s great products.

We are calling for a Goya buycott.

Seattle Police Say Most Non-White Officers Will be Fired if City Cuts Budget 

 

The Seattle Police Department (SPD) announced that many of their newly hired, non-white officers would be the first let go should the city continue with drastic, politically motivated talks of budget cuts.

Seattle Police told residents Friday that current City Council discussions about cutting the department's budget by 50 percent would be "catastrophic for public safety." Seattle Chief of Police Carmen Best warned activist groups and council members alike that the department's "newest, most broadly diverse officers on patrol" would be the first employees they are "forced to terminate" under the proposed budget cuts. Best wrote a letter to Mayor Jenny Durkan Friday cautioning that at least 50 percent of BIPOC officers would be the first people fired.

Two Texas police officers fatally shot while responding to a domestic disturbance 

 

Two police officers in McAllen, Texas, were killed while answering a domestic disturbance call Saturday afternoon, according to the police chief.

The officers were shot by a suspect as they approached the door of a home, McAllen Police Chief Victor Rodriguez said during a press conference Saturday evening.

"The officers never had a chance to suspect a deadly assault on them, much less death, at that moment in time," a very emotional Rodriguez told reporters.

Black lives matter — so stop supporting policies that have failed Black communities 

 

Although some of the leaders of the best-funded Black Lives Matter organizations seek to move the United States toward socialism and impose other far-left goals (the co-founder of BLM, Patrisse Cullors, acknowledged in a 2015 interview that she is a “trained Marxist”), millions of others who identify with the BLM movement merely want police and criminal justice reforms and greater racial equality.

Improving African American communities is, of course, a noble goal. But it’s exceptionally difficult to fix a problem if one doesn’t identify its cause. And it seems, based on some of the rhetoric from the BLM movement, that many have failed to realize that an important reason why so many Black communities remain impoverished is that liberal politicians have imposed destructive policies on them for decades.
