France Tackles Online Homophobia

Here’s a story on the global front where French lawmakers talk about online homophobia. It see it all the time. Sometimes the homophobia is aggressive, and other times it’s passive aggressive. But it’s everywhere online.

The French Parliament will start debating a bill on online hate speech and harassment tomorrow (3 July) that could see tech companies clamp down on homophobia.

Here’s the link for more. 

Madonna’s New Self-Indulgent Video and Pulse Nightclub Victims 

Here’s a story that questions Madonna’s motives with a new music video, with regard to the Pulse Nightclub shootings. 

While the singer says her intent was to bring attention to gun violence in America, survivors of the late night domestic terrorist attack are condemning her for exploiting their pain and re-traumatizing them.

I really don’t know much about it, but just at a glance I always side with the survivors. They are the people who lived through the nightmare. And they are the people who now live with the PSTD. 

You can read more about it, here. It goes into more detail, with more comments from survivors.

Tom Holland Wants Gay Spider-man

I saw an article the other day where they were listing actors as possible choices for a new Elvis movie. And not one of those actors was openly gay. Not one. So if it’s okay for straight actors to play gay face, then why isn’t it okay for openly gay actors to play a straight Elvis? Why isn’t there one openly gay actor in the running to play Elvis? People tell me it’s only acting whenever a straight actor plays gay face. If that’s true, it’s only acting whenever an openly gay actor plays straight. 

With that said, here’s something interesting about Spider-man and Tom Holland.

Just ahead of the release of the new Spider-film Far From Home, actor Tom Holland said he’d be totally down with a gay Spider-Man.

Here’s the rest.
