Kylie Jenner‘s friend explains:

“This is an old video that I was a little hesitant on sharing because it’s embarrassing, but it’s just another example of how cruel people can be…perfect strangers for that matter. I hope that man finds happiness and peace, but if he were to trip and fall infront of a car that would be fine too hehe jk jk I’m praying for him”

In the video, the transgender icon recalls sightseeing around Jerusalem with her girlfriend Natalia “Nats” Getty, a tour guide, and a bodyguard.

After taking a photo with two Israeli soldiers, Gigi is approached by a man who flat out asks her in public:

“Hey! Is that a boy or a girl?”

Needless to say, the vlogger was absolutely shocked by the hateful comment, and found herself “holding back tears.”

Although Nats believes the comment was directed at her, NO ONE should be subjected to such harassment and humiliation.

To hear Gigi explain the situation, ch-ch-check out the video (below).

<a href=

Just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse.

On Wednesday morning, Donald Trump announced his decision to take a million steps back and implement a sweeping ban on transgender people from serving in the military.

This comes after his mission to remove protections for transgender students earlier this year. A real “ally” huh, Caitlyn Jenner???

According to the musician, he decided to go public with the news after receiving “a message from a brave individual.” The 19-year-old adds:

“Such message inspired me to shed light on an aspect of my private life which I have kept distant from my career in music.”

Although he knew he was gay when he was 16, he was still in the process of coming to terms with his sexuality. Additionally, he doesn’t find the subject to be that “interesting.”

“I decided not to publicize my sexuality largely due to a matter of privacy, as I was still trying to find comfort and confidence within my own skin. Further, I always found conversations regarding music, politics, art, books – and the greatness of Nas’ catalog – to be far more interesting than what type of guy I was into. This is still true today.”

Overall, he encourages his fans to be their authentic selves, and to discover their inner voice!

“While this message is most definitely overdue, I encourage anyone who is navigating their sexuality to devote as much time as they need to the process of finding self-confidence, self-acceptance, and self-love. Hell, for me, it took years to write this message. Nevertheless, I figured now was the time to let a few more friends know that I am happy, I am here for you, and I am proud of who I am.”

Bravo, Greyson! BRAVO!

Teen Vogue’s Controversial Anal Sex Story Has A Really Beautiful And IMPORTANT Message!

no title

Read. This. NOW!!!

Earlier this month, Teen Vogue published an informational article about anal sex as part of their ongoing sex education series. In the piece, writer Gigi Engle gives a bare bone overview “for teens, beginners, and all inquisitive folk.”

Sadly, the digital story received a flood of backlash, particularly from Christian vlogger Elizabeth Johnston — aka “The Activist Mommy” — who accused the publication of “pandering indecency to minors.”

On Friday, Teen Vogue and Allure‘s Digital Editorial Director Phillip Picardi‏ — who monitors the site’s webmaster email — opened up about the controversial write-up, and shared a personal story of how sex ed (or lack thereof) has affected his life.

He wrote:

It wasn’t until college where Phillip received an honest and accurate understanding of sexual intercourse, STDs, and the importance of using contraceptives.

Picardi also believes the negative publicity surrounding Engle’s piece is really about “homophobia,” and how others refuse to update their “arcane” beliefs regarding sexuality.

We echo what Phillip has to say, and we hope this article helps eliminate the unfair stigma surrounding anal sex.

The Glee star wrote:

In 2013, the Filipino musician came out as a lesbian, and the next year told Oprah Winfrey during an interview:

“Not exactly transitioning to a male, but basically my soul is like male… But I’m not going to go through that stage where I’m going to change everything—not change my body. I would change, like, this look: Cut my hair and wear boy clothes and everything, but that’s all.”

The 25-year-old first gained recognition for performing covers of songs such as I Will Always Love You and My Heart Will Go On. In 2010, Jake became the first Asian solo singer to have a top 10 album on the Billboard 200 chart.

Winfrey famously dubbed Zyrus “the most talented girl in the world.”

We are so proud of Jake, and we look forward to what the future holds!

DUH! Homophobic People Are More Likely To Be Gay, Says Study!

no title

We mean, is anyone surprised??

According to an unearthed 2012 study from the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, individuals who identify as straight and have homophobic attitudes are more likely to show attraction toward members of the same sex.

During the study, the subjects had to respond to quick timed tasks, which ended up uncovering their secret, hidden desires!

According to author Netta Weinstein:

“Individuals who identify as straight but in psychological tests show a strong attraction to the same sex may be threatened by gays and lesbians because homosexuals remind them of similar tendencies within themselves.”

So basically they’re projecting their own self-hatred onto others!

The experiment also believes homophobia begins at home, especially with strict parents. Co-author Richard Ryan says:

“Those people who have such discrepancies, who have really a split between their unconscious attraction and what they consciously say about themselves, are more likely to come from authoritarian homes… If you are a parent who really believes your child should be straight, and when you use whatever means you can to convince them them that they’re only good and worthy if they are, that would be very controlling and it creates a lot of conflict in the child.”

In an ideal world, everyone would be free to be themselves!
