AS BABY APPROACHES, IT'S A WAR OF THE WORLDS BETWEEN TOM & KATIE! February 23, 2006
In a sudden rebellion against My Favorite Alien and Interplanetary CruiseControl, furious KATIE HOLMES warned fiancé/daddy-to-be TOM CRUISE that she'll absolutely refuse to allow Scientologists to commandeer her newborn at birth for what their church calls "Processing a New Mother" — a bizarre ritual which involves separating mother and child for three days, allowing only minimal contact! As her time approaches, sources say, Katie's becoming hysterical over the idea that her baby will be controlled by the sect's handlers from the moment he/she enters the world. In a raging confrontation, Katie told Tom she flatly rejects Scientology's edict that newborns should be left totally alone for the entire first day after birth — a process that supposedly helps the infant recuperate spiritually after separation from the womb. Tom stubbornly insists that laws laid down by Scientology founder L. RON HUBBARD must be obeyed, say sources, but Katie told him she refuses to discuss the matter — and warned him never to speak of it again! Stay tuned. (We contacted Cruise's rep, who denied all. Katie's rep did not respond.)
Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002. 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".
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.
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 GifWhite 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…
