"We Can't Be Silent": Asian Americans in Hollywood Denounce "Chinese Virus" and Racist Incidents
"I want us all to understand there is no 'Chinese Virus.' A virus knows no nationality, and wherever and however it started, it does us no good to point fingers, ostracize, attack or demonize Asian people."
Shannon Lee, daughter of martial arts film star Bruce Lee, recently wrote this message on her late father's Instagram, offering a not-so-subtle criticism of President Donald Trump and senior members of his administration who have continually referred to the novel coronavirus — which has caused a global pandemic comprising almost half a million confirmed cases of the disease COVID-19 and over 20,000 deaths — as a "Chinese virus," despite the World Health Organization's warning against using geographic locations when naming illnesses.
The phrase is now linked to a wave of racist attacks against Asians and Asian Americans, from hate-filled messages on social media platforms to physical assaults in public.
The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur tweeted about his children being bullied by classmates. Weijia Jiang, CBS News' White House correspondent, revealed that a White House official had referred to the coronavirus as the "Kung Flu" "to my face." Actor Daniel Dae Kim, who recently tested positive for the novel coronavirus, wrote that it had been "too heartbreaking" to initially comment on the "blatant acts of racism against Asian people during this outbreak."

Dan Reynolds speaks out against gay ‘cure’ therapy at Billboard awards
Dan Reynolds continues to prove his status as an LGBTQ ally.
The American singer-songwriter, who graced the cover of GAY TIMES in January year, and his band Imagine Dragons were the winners of the Top Rock Artist award at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards this week.
Dan used the opportunity to highlight a cause close to his heart, dedicating his speech to LGBTQ youth who have been – or are at risk of being – put through the harmful practice of gay conversion ‘therapy’.
“I just wanna take this moment to say there are still 34 states that have no laws banning conversion therapy, and on top of that 58% of our LGBTQ population live in those states,” he said.
“This can change, but its gonna take all of us talking to our state legislators [and] pushing forward laws to protect our LGBTQ youth.”
RICKY ADAMS: OHIO MAN WHO STOPPED CHILD ABUSER MOLESTING 5-YEAR-OLD BOY DIES
An Ohio man who made national news after he was arrested for attacking a 17-year-old male who was allegedly molesting a 5-year-old boy has died.
Ricky Adams, 20, was charged with felony assault after he walked in and allegedly found the teenager with the child’s penis in his mouth in March. Following Adams' arrest, a GoFundMe page was set up by his uncle Jeff Cook to raise money for his legal fees as a sign of support, which went on to attract more than $40,000 in donations.
The Eastlake Police Department said the cause of death is still unconfirmed but signs point to a suspected drug overdose, reports WOIO.
Michigan bans discrimination against gay couples by adoption agencies
Michigan will no longer allow faith-based adoption agencies to turn away same-sex couples.
As part of a settlement in a lawsuit brought forth by the American Civil Liberties Union, Attorney General Dana Nessel nixed a four-law old allowing adoption and foster care centers to discriminate in the name of their “religious beliefs.” Her office announced the decision on Friday in a statement calling anti-LGBTQ bias on the part of child placing agencies “illegal.”
“Limiting the opportunity for a child to be adopted or fostered by a loving home not only goes against the state’s goal of finding a home for every child, it is a direct violation of the contract every child-placing agency enters into with the state,” Nessel said.
Dan Reynolds Says His LGBTQ Activism Invites Backlash On All Sides, But 'Everybody Has to Do Their Part'
Dan Reynolds is not afraid of alienating some in his audience. The Imagine Dragons frontman has been a fierce and outspoken ally for the LGBTQ community for the last few years, and has seen his fair share of criticism for being so vocal.
Reynolds opened up about that criticism in a recent interview with Vulture. The artist said that many of his critics were conservative parents who didn’t agree with his message of equality. “Going into this, I knew there would be people on the far right who were going to be upset,” he said of his activism. “People tell me they won’t allow their kids to go to my concerts anymore; that when I get to heaven, God’s going to be upset with me because I made so many kids gay.”

As MeToo storms the world, some techies are forming men's groups to talk about their emotions...sometimes, they cry
Andrew Horn couldn't remember the last time he released his anger.
The 32-year-old founder of Tribute.co, a video montage platform recently dubbed by the New Yorker as "Hallmark 2.0," recalled throwing things and slamming doors – but never actually expressing his anger. So, one of the attendees in his men's-only meeting group handed him a pillow while the others encouraged him to scream into it. He let out a guttural release of primal rage.
"I felt a lot better," he explained.
Horn says the key to unlocking his emotions has been discovering "modern masculinity," a movement of men exploring their emotions in small group settings.

When he saw a woman fearing for her life while being chased and slashed by a machete-wielding man -- he didn’t flinch.
