!! OMG, part of your world: Prophet drowns during cleansing ceremony, family blame mermaids !!

Oh, this is some proper “Undah Da Sea” type shit!
A “self-styled prophet”, Simbarashe Kamupondera, drowned in the Ruwa River on Wednesday when he was swept away by a strong current during a cleansing ceremony in Epworth, Simbabwe! However, the family believes Simbarashe is still alive, and are claiming he was abducted by mermaids (known as Njuzu).

“Simbarashe came to stay with us a month ago. He has been telling us that he had a spirit of a mermaid. He also said that a prophet had prayed for a cloth that he gave him to always tie when getting into the waters. Yesterday he bought a new cloth after he had written his name on the old one saying that he could no longer use it. He tied it today before he got into the water,” Magma Mutingwende, Simbarashe’s sister-in-law said.
We believe that he was taken by a mermaid and we are not going to mourn him because we know that he is coming back,” Magma added.

GURRRL! I know da NILE runs deep, but get a GRIP! Somehow I don’t think it was Ariel this time. This all sounds a bit FISHY!
When a news crew arrived on the scene, Magma was already all packed up and getting ready to leave the river banks with her two friends who are also congregants of the small apostolic sect because it “was getting dark”.

“We have not told his wife as yet and we know that he is coming back.” Magma added.

…hopefully she catches this then. RIP Simbarashe!

!! OMG, how deplorable: Russian authorities continue to turn blind eye towards violent attacks on LGBT Russians !!

I know, it’s not the nicest thing to wake up to with your cornflakes and coffee, but it’s important that people see this video! ​Human Rights Watch has just released a graphic and shocking new video highlighting many of the various violent attacks on the LGBT community in Russia.
As circumstances for LGBT Russians continue to deteriorate, they are urging for the Russian government to take action and re-address their brutal stance ahead of the Sochi Olympic Games:

“The Russian authorities have the power to protect the rights of LGBT people, but instead they are ignoring their responsibility to do so,” said Tanya Cooper, Russia researcher at Human Rights Watch. “By turning a blind eye to hateful homophobic rhetoric and violence, Russian authorities are sending a dangerous message as the world is about to arrive on its doorstep for the Olympics that there is nothing wrong with attacks on gay people.”

Be warned — the video is not for the faint of heart:

!! OMG, where do I sign up?: Property Tycoon Posts HK1billion ‘Dowry’ To Find A Husband For His Happily Lesbian Daughter !!

Cecil Chao Sze-tsung, a high-powered and hugely successful property tycoon in Hong Kong, has offered a 1 BILLION HK DOLLAR bounty to any male who can woo his daughter into becoming her husband. The only problem is, is that his daughter Gigi plays for the opposite team! She’s also already found someone she loves, and is already an advocate for LGBTQ rights! Anyway — Gigi sounds rad, and provided some very tongue-in-cheek alternative suggestions for her dad’s offering:

“I don’t think my dad’s offering of any amount of money would be able to attract a man I would find attractive,” the socialite said in an interview with the Post after her father announced that he was doubling the “dowry” he offered back in 2012 which lured in more than 20,000 suitors.
“Alternatively, I would be happy to befriend any man willing to donate huge amounts of money to my charity, Faith in Love, provided they don’t mind that I already have a wife. Third and lastly, thank you Daddy, I love you too,” she said in the interview.
Gigi works as an executive director at her father’s Cheuk Kang property development company and is known for her charity work and for her position as chairwoman of the Faith in Love Foundation. She is also an advocate for LGBT rights and a founding member of the Big Love Alliance.
She told the Post that while her father’s insistence on finding her a husband has not hurt their relationship, the highly-publicized offers have made her partner of nine years, Sean Eav, “distraught”.
“I understand that he loves me, it’s just he’s from another time and it’s difficult for him to understand the plight of the LGBT [community]. At the office it’s business as usual. At family gatherings we hug and dance. And we just agree to disagree on what marriage is and family is,” she said.
Chao reportedly believes that it’s not too late to change Gigi’s thinking because she’s only 33 years old. “I don’t want to interfere with my daughter’s private life,” Chao said in an interview with Malaysian newspaper Nanyang Siang Pau on January 20, “I only hope for her to have a good marriage and children as well as inherit my business.”

It’s always shocking the amount of denial an incredibly smart person can live with! I mean, if Cecil Chao Sze-tsung made his billions through building an empire with smart, strategic property sales, why can’t he seem to wrap his brain around his daughter’s sexuality? That being said, if any of you ladies own a fake moustache, a suit, and a top hat — this may be just the homewrecking opportunity you’ve be waiting for!
