After being hounded by the paparazzi and countless rumours and speculation surrounding what some say to be a gender transition, Kardashian father figure Bruce Jenner will finally set the record straight with Diane Sawyer on Friday, April 24th!
If Bruce identifies as trans, we think it’s wonderful that (in a roundabout way) the Kardashian‘s vapid brand of fame will have built this incredible media platform for Bruce to discuss trans issues with such a large, global audience! For families everywhere to acknowledge that trans-ness could, too, possibly be part of your family! Will you be tuning in?
An Alabama man who grew enormous chi-chis after taking an antipsychotic drug as a boy was awarded $2.5 million in damages in a Philadelphia court yesterday against the Johnson & Johnson subsidiary that makes the drug!
A Common Pleas jury concluded that Austin Pledger, now 20, “was not adequately warned” that he would grow size 46DD breasts as a side effect of using Risperdal, produced by Janssen Pharmaceuticals, according to his lawyer, Thomas Kline.
“This trial is important publicly,” Kline told the Daily News yesterday, “because it provided for the first time a public window into the real risks of this drug.”
At the time, Risperdal was not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in children – Pledger, who has autism, was 8 years old when the prescription was written – and its label reported that the risk of gynecomastia, a condition that causes men to grow female breasts, was low, according to Kline.
However, in 2006, the FDA approved Risperdal’s use as a schizophrenic aid for children and issued new label information that said the drug contained high levels of prolactin, a hormone that promotes breast growth, Kline said.
Wow. Do you know how many girls in LA would kill for a set of brand new 46DD tits and a cold 2.5 million dollars!?
I know! You’ve been absolutely outraged at the lack of racial diversity in your emoji pack! It’s been hard to sleep at night! Well — you can clear that internet conscience, because Apple has released a new emoji pack today, an update to Apple’s iOS and OSX systems that will enable users to modify skin tones themselves with a specific emoji keyboard. Even THE GAYS are in there. Phew!
It’s a comprehensive update, with over 300 emoji characters being introduced altogether, including same-sex families. Previously, the only non-white emoji were a man with a turban, a chap with a Cossack hat and a Chinese man who was presumably intended to represent the entirety of East Asia.
We’re all for inclusiion, but WTF is up with the BRIGHT yellow guy?! Unless they’re aiming for Homer Simpson inclusion, that one needs to go back to the drawing board! Anyway, are you excited to be able to send your friends emojis that correctly represent them?

“Don’t call me a female boxer. I’m a boxer.”
Everlast has released a powerful new ad which takes on the need for an equal playing field when it comes to gender in sports. A bit about the commercial from director Claire Edmonson via The Huffington Post:
“There seems to be a trend happening where women’s career titles are constantly being genderized. For instance, I’m constantly referred to as a ‘female director’ instead of a ‘director’ and I wanted to address that. I also wanted to make something positive for young girls to see.”
Edmondson explained the message she wants these girls to take away from the video.
“I’m hoping that they feel encouraged to stick with whatever they are doing, even if it feels a little hopeless at time and for them to know they do matter.”
Check out the clip below!
Transparent won the Golden Globe for best television series, comedy, and showrunner Jill Soloway did the un-Jared Leto thing and actually dedicated the award to two trans people and the community the show so heavily focuses on.
“This award is dedicated to the memory of Leelah Alcorn and too many trans people who die too young,” she said. “And it’s dedicated to you, my trans parent, my moppa. You’re watching at home right now. I just want to thank you for coming out because in doing so you made a break for freedom, you told your truth, you taught me how to tell my truth and make this show. And maybe we’re going to be able to teach the world something about authenticity and truth and love. To love.”
Beautifully said, Jill! This is how you use your vision and platform to change the world!
