Bea Arthur’s LGBT Youth Homeless Center
This news about Bea Arthur has been trending all week, and rightly so.
When actress Bea Arthur died, she bequeathed $300,000 to New York City‘s Ali Forney Center for homeless LGBT youth. The Golden Girls and Maude star, a long-time supporter of the LGBT community, will continue to be a friend when a new 18 bed shelter opens in February of 2017.
You can read more about it here. I remember reading an article while I was in Provincetown back in the 90s about how she supported the LGBT community.
Penis News: Anthony Weiner, Again
Anthony Weiner is making news again for sexting another woman… this time while babysitting his son.
Anthony Weiner, the ex-Congressman husband of Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, sexted penis photos from his bed while babysitting their 4-year-old son. Huma responded by announcing her separation from Weiner after six years of marriage.
You can check that out here. It’s really too sad to comment on. According to the article, he did delete his Twitter account after this new sext scandal broke. There are photos.
Owen Smith’s Alleged 29 Inch Penis and Twitter Exaggerations
From what I can gather, Owen Smith is a politician in the UK. It gets a little confusing and I don’t want to say anything that’s not true. There are far to many things going around these days that are untrue as it is…thanks to social media.
Owen Smith’s campaign has denied an eyebrow-raising claim that he joked about having a 29-inch penis.
The remark was made last night at the Labour leadership challenger’s rally in Hull – but he insists it was misinterpreted.
You can check this out here, where there are tweets about it. Smith says he was only joking about having a 29 inch inseam, not a 29 inch penis. He’s five feet six inches tall. That would make sense for a guy who is five feet six inches tall, because why on earth would anyone joke about having a 29 inch penis?
In my opinion, what bothers me most about this article (and others like it) is the possibility that someone tweeted and allegedly lied about it without knowing the facts, and then getting the truth completely wrong. And I see this daily on Twitter, and I block people for it daily, too.
