Brunei Barbaric New Islamic Stoning Law For Gay Sex

Brunei has begun to enforce one of the worst laws against gay people in years. It’s so barbaric and so disgusting that it’s been condemned almost everywhere on a global level.

The tiny, Muslim-majority kingdom in 2014 became the first East Asian country to introduce Sharia law at a national level. The government introduced the legislation and associated penalties in stages, with the new measures set to begin Wednesday, April 3.

This means, in short, gay men caught having gay sex will be stoned to death, and gay women caught having sex will receive 100 lashes. The punishment for adultery is the same for gay sex.

You can read it in detail, here. It goes into a good deal more detail about how people are now living in fear, and about the Muslim religion.

Chicago’s First Gay Woman Mayor

I’ve seen this trending everywhere all week. I’ve also seen a lot of those people commenting about how they hate labels. “Why can’t she just be mayor without a label?” That really bothers me. Why can’t people just shut up and let some of us just enjoy the fact Lightfoot is the first black openly gay woman who has EVER been elected Mayor of Chicago. That’s a huge step forward for all LGBT people, especially when you think about gay people being stoned in a horrible country like Brunei. 

Lightfoot also made history, becoming the first black woman and the first openly gay person to be elected Chicago mayor. Chicago will become the largest U.S. city to have a black woman serve as mayor when Lightfoot is sworn in May 20.

Here’s more about this one.

Trans Woman Attacked and Humiliated In Paris

This attack on a trans woman in Paris seems to have come out of nowhere, and it was completely random…a random act of hate against trans people.

While exiting a metro station in central Paris, three men attacked her.
‘You’re a man, you’re not going anywhere, you’re not coming past,’ the men shouted at her. Pushing and punching her as she tried to get through the crowd.

There’s more, here. Transport police came to her defense, but it’s been alleged that the police mis-gendered her and referred to her as a man. There’s a very detailed video at the link so you can watch the whole thing as it transpired.

 Reader Review: his story will stay with you and you will feel you know every character and the beauty of their home in the mountains of North Carolina. A sequel is in order and a film as well. Bravo Field

Altered Parts by Ryan Field 


Have you ever wondered what it might have been like for two young men who fell in love in 1940? Well that’s exactly what happened to young Joe Buddy Barnes and a cowboy drifter named Clay Totten.

Even though he’s great at running his family’s general store and fixing machines, Joe Buddy can’t seem to figure out how to fix his own life. The fact that he lives way up on remote Buddy’s Mountain in Western North Carolina, with two spinster aunts, doesn’t help his situation either. Although his aunts devoted their lives to him, one aunt never got over a long lost love and the other was born a man who always identified as a woman.

Then one hot summer afternoon in 1940 everything changes. While Joe Buddy is swimming in the creek he accidentally meets a tall, dark cowboy from Wyoming named Clay. He’s a drifter who is only passing through North Carolina on his way to Florida, where he plans to enlist in the military.

There’s an instant connection, and Joe Buddy winds up bringing Clay home for supper that night because he feels sorry for him. However, Joe Buddy suspects there’s more to Clay’s story than he’s telling, and he persuades Clay to stick around long enough to find out. As each event unfolds, these two young men move forward in ways that neither one of them ever expected. And as World War II lurks in the not so far off distance, there are some interesting changes coming to Buddy’s Mountain you won’t want to miss.
