Tom Cruise’s future father-in-law apparently isn’t a happy camper.

Katie Holmes’s dad is said to be very upset because his unmarried
daughter is pregnant with Cruise’s child. And, what’s more, the devoutly
Catholic Martin Holmes reportedly is none-too-thrilled about his
daughter’s involvement in her husband-to-be’s controversial religion,
Scientology.

[Martin Holmes] was very upset and got into a real spat with Katie, the
forthcoming issue of Life & Style Weekly quotes a close friend of Cruise
as saying. Tom had promised her parents that they would do the right
thing and get married before any baby came along. After scolding his
daughter, according to the mag, Martin Holmes berated Cruise by
declaring You’re no good.

He said he and his wife were very upset by the news, according to the
source, and demanded the pair get married quickly.

Furthermore, a member of Christ the King Church, which the Holmes family
belongs to, told L&S that Cruise and Holmes’ publicist, his sister Lee
Anne DeVette, sent a letter to parishioners, asking them not to talk to
reporters. Although a family friend told the mag that the Holmes family
is thrilled by the news of a grandchild, they’re also concerned.

It seemed like Katie was being controlled by Scientologists, the friend
told L&S. Now they wonder if it’s a Rosemary’s Baby situation, where
Katie is being groomed to provide Tom with a child.

DeVette didn’t respond to The Scoop’s repeated requests for comment.



Personally I've met Katie Holmes, about 4-5 years ago at a UCLA screening series led by Curtis Hanson. She was one of the most gracious celebs I've ever met, and she's damn smart too. I'm choosing to believe she's actually in love, and when she decided she might not be...I'd expect we'd hear about that too. Enuf of this whole child bride being held captive by Scientologists, if she wanted out I think she'd go...of course there could be an evil alien inside of her that's keeping her by Tom's side...but that's an entirely different matter altogether!

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002.[1] It was created as an expansion of the San FranciscoBay Area Bisexual Network (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine, Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality, was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the stereotype depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves".[2] The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of sexuality and gender, to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat biphobia. - Wikipedia

No Apologies for Queer White Tears - 2016 BlaQOUT Keynote

No Apologies for Queer White Tears By Faith Cheltenham Delivered as a keynote address to the 2016 BlaQOUT Conference at UC Riverside on April 9th, 2016.
Black girl drinking White People Tears Gif White tears is a term that has a startling effect on white folks. Developed over time to describe the phenomenon of white people being upset at the very act of discussing race, it’s evolved into a funny yet, extremely effective way to describe white people’s discomfort in discussing the very racism they perpetuate.
One of the earliest articles available online about white tears written by a person of color is the 2007 College Student Affairs Journal article “When White Women Cry: How White Women’s Tears Oppress Women of Color” by Mamta Motwani Accapadi. In the article, Accapadi describes a case study of a white woman bursting into tears when being pressed by a woman of color about diversity resources at the college that employs them both. Instead of working on the issues affecting students, the c…
