'Ex-gay' therapist allegedly found soliciting 'hookups' on gay dating apps
A Florida psychologist who has compared homosexuality to obsessive-compulsive disorder and claimed that he could change clients’ sexual orientation through therapy was found soliciting “hookups” on gay dating apps, according to LGBTQ nonprofit Truth Wins Out.
Norman Goldwasser, clinical director of Horizon Psychological Services in Miami Beach, Florida, allegedly used the screen name “hotnhairy72” to meet other men on Manhunt and Gay Bear Nation. The Manhunt profile, which has since been deleted, includes several nude images that appear to be of Goldwasser and lists a number of interests, including “dating,” “kissing,” “married men,” “massage” and a series of more explicit activities, according to screenshots provided to NBC News by Truth Wins Out.
Rightwing fake news site run by a gay man implicated in conspiracy to derail Mueller investigation
Gateway Pundit, the far-right fake news website founded and run by a gay man, Jim Hoft, has walked back accusations made against special counsel Robert Mueller after the FBI opened an investigation of those accusations. Hoft is frequently called “the dumbest man on the internet” for his wild conspiracy theories and constant mistakes.
Yesterday, the website ran a post under this headline: “**EXCLUSIVE DOCUMENTS** : Special Counsel and Former FBI Director Robert Mueller Accused of Rape By ‘Very Credible Witness ‘ —MUCH MORE TO COME #BelieveAllWomen.”
University of Southern California to Pay $215 Million Over Sex Abuse Scandal
The University of Southern California has agreed to pay $215 million to settle a federal lawsuit filed by hundreds of women who say that they were sexually abused by the former head gynecologist at the student health center and that school officials did not address their complaints.
Among those throwing shade on West’s comments was Bakari Sellers, an African-American lawyer and politician from South Carolina.
“Idiocy is the willingness to sell out your culture for trinkets,” Sellers wrote. “@kanyewest doesn’t understand reality. The same hat he is wearing is responsible for Jeff Sessions and taking us back a decade in Criminal Justice reform. @kanyewest is a clown who wants to sell albums. I’m good.” 30-Sep-2018
...and nobody cared. Sorry, Janet. 30-Sep-2018
White New York City Teacher Who Stepped On Black Students' Backs During Slavery Lessons Wants To Sue Over Reverse Racism
In peak Caucasity, a white Bronx social studies teacher who is facing being fired after stepping on Black students’ backs during a lesson on slavery, is now claiming that she is the real victim of racism (literally, reverse racism) and intends to file a lawsuit, which her lawyer says could be worth up to $1 billion.
According to the New York Daily News, the issue started back in February at Middle School 118, when Patricia Cummings picked out black students, told them to lie on the floor and stepped on their backs to show them what it felt like during a lesson on U.S. slavery, per the reports of multiple students and one staffer.
Now, Cummings has filed a notice of claim, filed in anticipation of a lawsuit, claiming that she is the real victim here of reverse discrimination, defamation, negligence and a litany of other claims.
Gay man sues Washington Teachers Union for discrimination
A gay former employee of the Washington Teachers Union filed a lawsuit in federal court on Sept. 18 accusing the union, its president, and its former chief of staff of subjecting him to a hostile work environment and later firing him because of his sexual orientation.
Upper Marlboro, Md., resident Barry Hobson, 36, charges in the lawsuit that he was subjected to unfair and discriminatory treatment and harassment by WTU’s then chief of staff, Dorothy Egbufor. The lawsuit says Egbufor served as Hobson’s immediate supervisor shortly after he was hired as a receptionist and office assistant on Jan. 15, 2017.
Hobson’s attorneys filed the lawsuit on his behalf in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. In addition to Egbufor, the lawsuit names as defendants Washington Teachers Union President Elizabeth Davis and the union itself, which represents 5,000 D.C. public school teachers.
Anti-LGBTQ Groups Sue Louisiana Governor to Stop Drag Queen Story Hour
In an attempt to stop a drag queen story hour event at Lafayette Public Library in Louisiana, two antigay Christian groups have filed suit against the town of Lafayette, the governor of Louisiana, and the library.
Chris Sevier, who with others filed suit on behalf of Warriors for Christ and Special Forces of Liberty, had previously sued five states claiming he had married his computer in New Mexico and they should recognize the union, reports local TV station KATC. Those suits were a stunt to challenge marriage equality. He has filed several other bizarre, unsuccessful suits -- against Apple, claiming that an erroneous URL caused him to develop a pornography addiction, and against members of Congress who displayed Pride flags.

Anti-LGBTI Christian author claims all oral sex is 'homosexual'
A Christian author of anti-LGBTI books has claimed that oral sex is the ‘practice of homosexuals’.
Linda Harvey, writer behind books like Maybe He’s Not Gay, has launched a frankly bizarre rant against sex education.
During an article for right-wing website BarbWire denouncing teaching teenagers about ‘pleasure’ during sex ed, the writer goes into an odd tangent about oral sex.
Harvey writes: ‘And let’s not forget the deadly contribution of “LGBTQ” advocates who demand “inclusive” sex ed – ie, lessons that outline in detail how kids can engage in anal and oral sex, the sex practices of homosexuals.’
For people with opposite sex partners: no, this isn’t an excuse to skip foreplay.

Azealia Banks takes aim at Troye Sivan in series of Tweets
If you’re not with Azealia Banks 100%, you may as well be against her.
And hey, that’s her prerogative.
She doesn’t make it easy to back her all the time — we’ve covered her many beefs time and time again.
Now Australian pop star Troye Sivan finds himself fresh at the center of her displeasure yet again, after giving a wishy-washy answer to Andy Cohen about what he’d say to her if the two happened to be riding an elevator together.
To back it up, Sivan was asked in January if there are any rappers he’d be interested in working with.
“I mean, I was a huge Azealia Banks fan. That all just kind of like went south a little bit. It’s just one of those annoying things where you just want to support [her] so bad, and it just doesn’t work out like that.”

Gay Trump supporter who brandished knife at Kathy Griffin show doesn’t feel he did anything wrong
Carl Pacheco says he was just hoping to have a good time when he showed up to Kathy Griffin’s recent show in Houston in a bright red “Make American Great Again” hat, a t-shirt with pictures of Trump’s face on it, and carrying a knife.
Richard Nunez and his wife, Michele, also attended the show. Afterwards, they got into a heated altercation with Pacheco in the parking lot, OutSmart reports.
“We were one of the last few to exit the hall,” Richard Nunez explains, “and made a comment to ourselves like ‘Whaaat is he wearing?’ and ‘Is that for real?’ and he responded with a comment similar to ‘Do you want a political debate?’”
“As my wife entered the vehicle, she closed the passenger door and rolled down her window,” Nunez continued. “She made a derogatory statement to the Trump supporter and he made another derogatory statement right back.”
In a video that was uploaded (and since deleted) from YouTube, Michele Nunez can be heard saying, “Hey, asshole, f*ck Trump!” To which Pacheco responds, “F*ck you, f*cking c*nt!”

Why Do Some LGBTQ Causes Go Viral and Others Are Ignored?
One month ago, I started a crowdfunding campaign for Seth Owen, the bright and audacious Georgetown-bound student who had been left homeless after enduring "conversion therapy" and receiving an ultimatum from his ultraconservative parents.
While it seems appropriate to shower Seth’s supporters with gratitude (and we are eternally thankful for your support), I instead want to implore you to continue your allyship offline in your own communities.
New Jersey Official Calls the Cops on Breastfeeding Mom: ‘Legally I’m Allowed to Nurse’
A breastfeeding mom said that a New Jersey official called the cops after she refused to cover up while nursing her 2-year-old daughter.
Michelle Ayala was feeding her daughter Daisy at Franklin Pond Beach on July 31, when a woman from the park’s recreation committee walked over and asked her to cover up.
“She said, ‘I see what you’re doing there, do you think you can do that somewhere else?’ And before she finished, I said, ‘Legally, I’m allowed to nurse wherever I am,’ ” Ayala told NBC 4.
New Jersey law allows women to nurse in public or private. While the beach in question is a private facility, Ayala is a paying member.
