Papa don't preach, she's gonna keep their baby.

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

The Memorist That's Me!

Just call me the memoirist.
People often say they remember me.
And I can't forget sh**, and just filled out a new HSAM research request UCI had sent me, so...

Reality for me? Just temporarily misplacing, or actively trying to forget, more things than the rest of humanity, and nonetheless it just comes back screaming to life over and over again like Groundhog Day (the movie remains a small personal comfort).

But. Living with hyperthymesia is fine, useful even. I hunt those oppression would use with it some days, on others I work on sharing a new sys with the public featuring my library of screenshots, and those like mine for my various cases in a new and innovative way. Partly book, partly website, all me. A lot of white people need to read themselves NOW I think, what they said THEN, ya know?

For the last year and half, I've also been working with a therapist who's diagnosed me with hyperthymesia. Which has led to realization after realization and I'…

Faith Cheltenham Bio

Faith Cheltenham

activist/writer/speaker

There are so many different aspects of Faith Cheltenham’s life and career––writer, community organizer, advocate, activist, lecturer, poet, social media expert, digital strategist––that she is currently working to develop a single unifying “theory of Faith.” (It might be easier if you keep in mind Faith lives with hyperthymesia, or the inability to forget her own memories.) Then you too might be able to “keep thefayth” and learn to live in a future where gender and sexuality quite easily bend and every single Black life matters. 

Faith got her start in LGBT advocacy as a Human Rights Campaign intern on the Gore 2000 campaign, and in 2002, she co-founded UCLA’s BlaQue for LGBT/SGL students of African descent. In 2006, she appeared in the Emmy winning reality series on race in America, “Black. White.” produced by Ice Cube. 

After spending time working in corporate America doing digital strategy for Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York and co-creating …
