The Republic of China legalises gay marriage

No.399482 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Taiwan's parliament has become the first in Asia to legalise same-sex marriage following a vote on Friday.

In 2017, the island's constitutional court ruled that same-sex couples had the right to legally marry.

Parliament was given a two-year deadline and was required to pass the changes by 24 May.

Lawmakers debated three different bills to legalise same-sex unions and the government's bill, the most progressive of the three, was passed.

Thousands of gay rights supporters gathered in the rain outside the parliament building in the capital, Taipei, to await the landmark ruling.

There were shouts of joy and some tearful embraces as the result was announced.

However, conservative opponents were angered by the vote.

No.401960 ViewReplyOriginalReport
President Trump threw his latest left-hook on Thursday as he described a Wednesday meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (C-CA) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to discuss infrastructure.

"She's a mess, look, lets face it," Trump said of Pelosi, who he accused of not understanding the pending US-Mexico-Canada trade agreement which must pass through the House.
"She does not understand it. And [administration trade officials] sort of feel she is disintegrating before their eyes," said Trump.

The President also questioned the mental state of 'crazy nancy,' saying "She's not the same person, she's lost it."

YouTuber ProJared Cheats on Wife, Allegedly Sends Nudes to Underage Fans

No.395203 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport

>YouTuber Jared Knabenbauer, known as ProJared, had multiple allegations of infidelity and fan-grooming go public recently. On Wednesday night, Knabenbauer he told his Twitter followers that he“would be getting a divorce” from his wife Heidi O'Ferrall. He claims that “Heidi’s privacy, mental well being and discretion has and will remain my highest priority.” This tweet seemingly caught O'Farrell off guard, who had already been blocked on the social media platform by her former husband.

>O'Farrell lobbed a number of accusations against Knabenbauer over multiple Twitter threads, including cheating on her with content creator Holly Conrad, known as Commander Holly. “I have proof,” she tweeted. “Explicit conversations and photographs of their relationship, which he extensively lied to me about on many occasions.” O’Farrell describes herself getting “gaslit” by Knabenbauer about his infidelity, “insisting that the only thing wrong with our marriage was me” even after he was caught, she tweeted.

>Knabenbauer’s YouTube network Normal Boots has not yet released a statement ( Newsweek reached out for comment) but a few prominent members of the community have spoken out. YouTuber Forrest Furst responded to Knabenbauer’s statement with “love you bud.” Peanut Butter Gamer, best known for making video game YouTube videos, responded to O’Farrell’s original tweet with “this ain’t it chief.” He soon deleted the post, but remained adamant that this divorce and drama should “have remained private.”

Billionaire pays off student debt of 2019 graduating class of Morehouse

No.400443 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Billionaire investor Robert F. Smith's commitment to pay off the student loan debt for graduates of the historically black Morehouse College covers millions of dollars, the school said.

"When you have to service debt, the choices about what you can go do in the world are constrained," Morehouse President David A. Thomas said Sunday. "(Smith's gift) gives them the liberty to follow their dreams, their passions." Thomas told CNN on Monday that the exact amount of student loan debt to be covered was still being calculated.

Smith's gesture, which Thomas called "a liberation gift," will enable graduates to have more capital to do things like start businesses and support their families.

Ocasio-Cortez likens growing cauliflower to colonialism

No.401503 ViewReplyOriginalReport
She promised grassroots activism, but this is ridiculous.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has taken aim at cauliflower, claiming that growing the vegetable in community gardens in non-white neighborhoods is an act of colonialism.

“When someone says that it’s ‘too hard’ to do a greenspace that grows yuca instead of, I dunno, cauliflower or something, what you’re doing is you’re taking a colonial approach to environmentalism,” the 29-year-old freshman congresswoman said in an Instagram video for her proposed Green New Deal economic stimulus package.

“And that is why a lot of communities of color get resistant to certain environmentalist movements — because they come with a colonial lens on them.”

Yuca is another name for the subtropical cassava root native to South America.

The tuber is not native to New York — making planting it here also an act of colonization.

There are no rules against growing it in New York City, and it was not clear whom she was referring to who claimed it is “too hard” to do so.

It “requires a warm humid climate,” according to the US Department of Agriculture.

“Temperature is important, as all growth stops at about [50ºF]. Typically, the crop is grown in areas that are frost free the year round,” according to materials from the agency.

Ironically, AOC talked up the Swiss chard, spinach and collard greens she is growing in another video — even though none of those are native to North America, and collards are actually part of the same family as cauliflower, Brassica oleracea.

Three-year-old changes gender from boy to girl after being sent to live with foster parents whose own son had just transitioned to become a female aged seven
>The child was sent to school in girl's uniform despite parents being asked not to
>The couple's seven-year-old biological son also transitioned to become female
>The couple, CP and TP, were investigated by Lancashire county council
>Social services feared children were being 'manipulated' into the changes

A boy of three was dressed in a girl’s uniform for school after living with foster parents whose own son transitioned to being female at the age of seven.

The younger child was taken to school dressed as a girl despite teachers ‘expressly’ asking the foster couple to put him in boys’ clothing.

The parents at the centre of the case, which came to light in a court judgment released last week, also had a third child in their care who had ‘gender identity issues’.

The couple, known only as CP and TP, were investigated by Lancashire County Council’s social services amid accusations they had ‘manipulated’ their children’s gender and risked causing them ‘significant emotional harm’.

Teenager Has 29 Magnetic Balls Removed After Putting Them In His Penis

No.401646 ViewReplyOriginalReport
A teenager in China has had a set of 29 magnetic balls removed from his bladder, three months after shoving them up his penis.

The 13-year-old, known as Lin, reportedly suffered severe abdominal pains for weeks after placing the objects inside himself but was too embarrassed to tell his parents what he had done.

I bet he was.

He was taken to Xi'an Children's Hospital in the capital of China's north-western Shaanxi Province on 11 May.

After being admitted, doctors ordered for X-rays of the youngster to find out the cause of the pain.

According to urologist Zhang Yanyan, the magnetic beads had formed a tight cluster inside Lin's bladder and had to be surgically removed.

Speaking about the bizarre case, Dr Yanyan said: "Roughly three months ago, while the boy was playing with the magnetic balls, he lined them up in a row and inserted them up his urethra out of curiosity.

"By the time he felt discomfort and tried to pull them out again, the magnets separated and some remained inside his urethra.

"During this time, the boy didn't tell his parents because he was too embarrassed, but the child admitted to experiencing abdominal pains for three months.

"He thought he could expel through urinating, not knowing that it would not have been possible to do so.

"His parents only discovered three months later when they noticed him walking with a limp and questioned him about it.

"We were unable to remove them in microsurgery, so we opened up his bladder and removed the entire cluster of magnetic balls - all 29 of them."

According to reports, the teenager is now recovering well after surgery and has already been discharged to continue his recuperation at home.

Dr Yanyan said it's important that children like Lin are given the right help and guidance during this particular time of their lives.
