“Sex and the City” Gilles Marini and Hollywood Sex Abuse
Here’s another story that came out recently about sexual abuse in Hollywood, with men.
I haven’t been thrilled with the way they’ve been promoting the movie, “Call Me By Your Name,” as a gay romance. But this article takes it even further by tackling something completely different. It’s not the first time I’ve seen people discussing this either.
“Call Me By Your Name” is a film about the “forbidden” romance between a closeted seventeen year old boy and a twenty-four year old man. Based on the book of the same name, the movie portrays a relationship in which the older adult clearly knows that what he’s doing is wrong, yet he still starts a romantic and sexual relationship with a high-school aged teenager.

Gay Instagrammer Supports Trump and Wears Blackface
Here we go again. You really do have to wonder about the kind of person who does something like this, and how badly they need attention.
This year for Halloween, Crane decided to dress up as Storm from X-Men. NBD, right? Wrong. His costume was complete with Storm’s signature shock of white hair, her yellow cape, and… her dark skin.
Not surprisingly, people weren’t so into a white dude wearing blackface for Halloween. They immediately began calling out Crane’s costume choice. (If you really need a lesson on the deeply racist history of blackface, here’s a start.)
Check this out here. I really couldn’t care less about his politics, but the blackface crosses the line.
