Miley Cyrus implies she won’t procreate due to climate change

Elle magazine has an interview with Miley Cyrus that covers every woke topic: climate change, sexism, abortion, housing inequality, etc.

Excerpts from the article:

“My record is called She Is Miley Cyrus. ‘She’ does not represent a gender. She is not just a woman. ‘She’ doesn’t refer to a vagina. She is a force of nature. She is power. She can be anything you want to be, therefore, she is everything. She is the super she. She is the she-ro. She is the She-E-O.”

“I think it’s very confusing to people that I’m married. But my relationship is unique. And I don’t know that I would ever publicly allow people in there because it’s so complex, and modern, and new that I don’t think we’re in a place where people would get it. I mean, do people really think that I’m at home in a fucking apron cooking dinner? I’m in a hetero relationship, but I still am very sexually attracted to women. People become vegetarian for health reasons, but bacon is still fucking good, and I know that. I made a partner decision. This is the person I feel has my back the most. I definitely don’t fit into a stereotypical wife role. I don’t even like that word.

“I have a new song, “Never Be Me,” and the chorus says, “If you’re looking for faithful, that’ll never be me. If you’re looking for stable, that’ll never be me. If you’re looking for someone that’ll be all that you need, that’s never going to be me.”

She laments the expectation this puts on the female sex: “We’re expected to keep the planet populated. And when that isn’t a part of our plan or our purpose, there is so much judgment and anger that they try to make and change laws to force it upon you—even if you become pregnant in a violent situation. If you don’t want children, people feel sorry for you, like you’re a cold, heartless bitch who’s not capable of love.” Cyrus hates the word selfish. “Why are we trained that love means putting yourself second and those you love first? If you love yourself, then what? You come first.”

“We’ve been doing the same thing to the earth that we do to women. We just take and take and expect it to keep producing. And it’s exhausted. It can’t produce. We’re getting handed a piece-of-shit planet, and I refuse to hand that down to my child. Until I feel like my kid would live on an earth with fish in the water, I’m not bringing in another person to deal with that.

Obese model Tess Holliday comes out as queer while her husband calls himself a “queer dad”

Tess Holliday/Instagram photo

If you don’t even know how to describe your sexuality at 33 years old, then how can your life suddenly make sense? Liberal logic never makes sense to me…

From Daily Mail: Tess Holliday has opened up about navigating her own sexuality, revealing that she has recently realized she is queer.

The 33-year-old model graces the cover of Nylon magazine’s July 2019 digital issue in a flirty yellow swimsuit, and during her interview, she recalled recently chatting with a man at a hotel pool in Mexico when he asked if she was bisexual.

‘I said, ‘Thank you so much for asking. I’ve been thinking a lot about my relationship to my own queerness, and I think the word pansexual speaks to me more than bi does,’ she said, but it turned out the guy was only asking if she was ‘buying’ ⁠— not ‘bi.’

Tess isn’t exactly sure how to describe her sexual identity, but the interaction is proof that it is something that has been on her mind. When asked if she would be in a romantic relationship with a woman, she said, ‘Yeah!’ adding, ‘I might not know, like, what to do. But I feel like I’d figure it out.’

Though she now knows she is queer, the realization is more complicated because she has been in a monogamous heterosexual marriage with her husband, Nick Holliday, since 2015. Nick, an artist from Australia, describes himself as a ‘queer dad’ on his Instagram bio, and the couple will be celebrating their four year wedding anniversary on Friday.

‘I feel like a lot of stuff in my life now makes sense. A lot of the things that I felt when I was younger make sense. A lot of the relationships that I had make sense,’ Tess said of realizing she is queer. ‘I definitely have a sense of relief. I can connect with people on a more intimate level than I was before, because I don’t have to pretend to be someone I’m not.’

Tess shared a similar sentiment on Instagram Monday when she posted a photo of herself modeling a rainbow bra and a pink lace thong. ‘Happy Pride y’all!’ she wrote. ‘I’ve always been an ally for the LGBTQ community & I find myself trying to navigate my own sexual identity. I’m still figuring out how I identify and that’s okay because everyone’s journey is different. Love y’all.’

During her interview with Nylon, the plus-size star also opened up about getting an abortion as a mother-of-two, sharing that she opted to have the procedure done at Planned Parenthood instead of at the private doctor’s office in Beverly Hills that she was referred to.

Tess grew up in the Bible Belt of Mississippi, a state that had just one abortion clinic, and she is an avid supporter of Planned Parenthood. The mom first discussed the abortion on Instagram in May in response to Alabama’s decision to impose a near-total ban on abortions, including those for victims of rape or incest.

In her post, she explained that she couldn’t mentally handle being pregnant again after suffering postpartum. Although it was a difficult decision, she said it isn’t one that she regrets. Tess, who has been candid about her struggles with postpartum depression on social media, has a three-year-old son named Bowie with Nick and a 13-year-old son named Rylee from a previous relationship.

The social media star has more than 1.9 million followers, and she is not shy about using her platform to fight for what she believes in. However, she told Nylon that there are certain brands that will send her free clothes but won’t work with her because of how controversial she is.

‘Why is it controversial that I chose to talk about my abortion?’ she asked. ‘And the fact that I got an abortion when I was in a marriage and could have financially supported a child, why did I feel so much shame for that?’

She continued: ‘Why is it controversial to talk about the fact that fat people deserve to take up space and deserve to be sexy? All of that just makes me so angry, because I see so many people that are plus-sized figures and figures in general, like celebrities, and they will post Black Lives Matter in their Insta-Stories, but not on their page because they don’t want to mess up their beautiful feed.

‘It just makes me so mad because this is why people are dying, this is why people feel so alone. We are not showing up for these people, and we are not telling them that they matter.’

Tess, who has been working with trainer Massy Arias since last summer, prepared for the physically challenging beach shoot in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, by working out five days a week for months ahead of time. She was also mindful about what she ate but pointed out that it was ‘not in a toxic, diet culture-restrictive way.’

However, on the day of the shoot, Tess struggled with posing while her feet sunk in the sand and the waves crashed around her. A blister on her foot also popped, making it a somewhat uncomfortable experience for her.

Although Nylon editor-in-chief Gabrielle Korn said the model was a ‘hard working professional’ during the shoot, Tess feared she was coming off as a diva. ‘Obviously I probably have internalized fatphobia about myself and what the world has ingrained in us,’ she said, adding: ‘I allowed a lot to just get into my head, and I tried so hard to get out of it, but I felt like I just kept digging further.’

The Corporate Left: Bank of America severs ties to migrant detention centers; GoFundMe raises $ for abortion

The Left politicize everything — banking, cookies (Nabisco’s Chips Ahoy), media, movies and TV, National Geographic, shaving (Gillette), sports, Walmart.

In America today, privately-owned businesses are no longer motivated by profit and service. Instead, businesses have become an arm of the Democrat Party by discriminating against conservatives and promoting the Left’s agenda.

Bank of America and GoFundMe are the latest examples.

Washington Examiner reports that on June 26, 2019, Bank of America announced they will no longer do business with companies who are involved in the operation of migrant detention centers.

Referring to clients who operate migrant detention centers, a BofA representative said that while they appreciated the “steps they have taken to properly execute their contractual and humanitarian responsibilities . . . in recognition of the concerns of our employees and stakeholders in the communities we serve, it is our intention to exit these relationships.”

One of the companies is Caliburn, which runs the Homestead center in Florida under a U.S. government contract, and to which Bank of America had provided a $380 million loan. Homestead is targeted by Demonrats running for president, including Bill de Blasio, Elizabeth Warren, and Eric Swalwell, who call the center a “prison”.

Then there is the crowd-funding website, GoFundMe.

Washington Free Beacon reports, June 26, 2019, that GoFuneMe has launched an ambitious campaign to raise $500,000 to “fight back” against limits on late-term abortion. 37.5% of the money raised will go to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider; 20% to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, a dark money group that pays for political and lobbying operations; 17.5% will go to the American Civil Liberties Union; and the remaining 25% to other abortion organizations.

Planned Parenthood CEO and president Leana Wen said laws that limit the practice based upon an unborn child’s heartbeat or ability to feel pain are “dangerous attacks” on Americans.

GoFundMe CEO Rob Solomon said in a press release: “Reproductive rights are human rights, and GoFundMe is proud to join this movement and work alongside these organizations fighting to protect women all across the country.”

So killing unborn and just-born humans are now a “human right”.

God help us.

Missouri denies license for last remaining PP-affiliated abortion clinic

Why did the state deny the license? State health officials issued a new rule that women required an extra, “invasive” pelvic exam to get an abortion and Planned Parenthood doctors said that was unnecessary and distressing, and refused to comply.

Read the whole story here at the Daily Mail: Missouri’s health department has denied to renew a license to perform abortions for the state’s last remaining clinic.

The ruling on Friday morning puts the state on track to become the first state without a functioning abortion clinic since 1974, when Roe v Wade was passed.

For now, the Planned Parenthood affiliate clinic in St Louis can stay open and continue procedures given a preliminary injunction previously issued by St Louis Circuit Judge Michael Stelzer.

A further court ruling could force the clinic to close. Judge Stelzer says he will issue a written order outlining next steps.

The battle over Missouri’s only abortion clinic returned to court on Friday, the deadline Judge Stelzer imposed for the state to decide whether to renew the clinic’s license.

Missouri’s health department allowed the St Louis Planned Parenthood clinic’s abortion license to lapse effective June 1.

Rulings by Judge Stelzer allowed the clinic to temporarily remain open. He also told the state it can’t simply let the license lapse but must either renew it or deny it. He gave the health department until Friday to decide.

According to Planned Parenthood, no state has been without a functioning abortion clinic since 1974, the year after the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion nationwide.

Health department officials in Missouri have cited concerns at the clinic, including that three ‘failed abortions’ required additional surgeries, and another led to life-threatening complications.

As the license expiration neared, state health officials brought in some conditions that Planned Parenthood would need to comply with to stay active.

On May 24, the state signed a ‘fetal heartbeat’ bill into law, banning abortions once a heartbeat is detectable (roughly around six weeks).

A rule was also imposed that clinicians would need to perform an extra, invasive pelvic exam three days before an abortion, on top of the standard pelvic exam and screening.

Doctors hit back, saying the added step was unnecessary and distressing for women, and the Planned Parenthood-affiliate clinic refused to comply.

Spike Lee tells Hollyweird to “shut it down” in Georgia over their heartbeat bill

CANNES, FRANCE – MAY 15: Director Spike Lee holds up a fist as he attends the photocall for “BlacKkKlansman” during the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival at Palais des Festivals on May 15, 2018 in Cannes, France. (Photo by Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images)

Another self-important Hollyweird celebrity who thinks he knows what is best for the citizens of Georgia rather than the elected officials.

Hey Spike, why don’t you worry about the kids being killed in the streets of Chiraq? You know, the same name of your 2015 film that lost $12.3 million dollars? Guess you can’t be bothered with them since that gun violence avenue didn’t make you any money. See his Instagram for what is REALLY important to him (Hint: self-promotion.) Hypocrite.

From MyFoxChicago: Director Spike Lee is calling for Hollywood production companies to leave Georgia over a law that would ban abortions as early as six weeks, upon detection of a fetal heartbeat.

Most studios that have commented have said they’re waiting to see if the so-called “heartbeat” law actually takes effect next year, or if the courts will block it. But at the arrivals line for Denzel Washington’s American Film Institute lifetime achievement tribute Thursday, Lee said now is the time for Georgia-based productions to “shut it down” and boycott the state’s booming film industry to drive change.

Lee acknowledged that a mass exodus could dent livelihoods, but cited black bus drivers affected by the Civil Rights Movement-era boycott in Montgomery.

“I know it’s going to affect people’s livelihood. But that’s how things change,” Lee said. (Well it certainly won’t affect HIS livelihood so NBD, right?)

“You’ve got to be on the right side of history, and the state of Georgia and those other states, they’re wrong,” he added.

Georgia’s economy currently gets a $9.5 billion annual boost from the industry.

Womyn who runs hotel in small-town Michigan offers free lodging to women seeking abortions

From Yahoo: Incensed by the spate of legislation severely limiting abortion rights in several states, the manager of a hotel in a small Michigan town posted an unusual offer on Facebook last month.

“Dear sisters,” Shelley O’Brien began in a post addressed to those who live in the states that have or are trying to restrict access to abortion. “We cannot do anything about the way you are being treated in your home-state,” she wrote. “But, if you can make it to Michigan, we will support you with several nights lodging, and transportation to and from your appointment” for abortion services.

The “support” includes staying at the Yale Hotel for free.

O’Brien, 55, runs the hotel in Yale, Michigan. According to The Detroit Free Press, the community near the state’s eastern boundary is perhaps best known for its annual Bologna Festival, which takes place every July. It’s a largely conservative town with a population of under 2,000.

O’Brien, a mother of three and a grandmother of seven, told CNN on Saturday that she felt compelled to take a stand after watching such states as Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Ohio and Kentucky pass bills that seek to significantly impede a woman’s access to abortion.

Efforts also have been made in Michigan to restrict abortion rights, including introduction last month in the state Legislature of a so-called heartbeat bill that would ban the procedures after a fetal heartbeat is detected ― a point when many women remain unaware that they are pregnant. (Nice, unbiased reporting there, HuffPo…)

“Women should have autonomy over their own bodies,” O’Brien said. “If we do not have control over our own bodies, then this is not a free world.”

In her Facebook post, which garnered thousands of reactions, O’Brien promised that she’d provide several nights free lodging at the Yale Hotel, as well as “transportation to and from your appointment” for out-of-state women seeking an abortion in Michigan.

Speaking to the Free Press last week, O’Brien clarified that her offer “extends to anybody” seeking an abortion who may need support, including women who live in parts of her own state where abortion providers are few and far between. The paper noted that there are no abortion providers in Yale, but women can find such services an hour’s drive away.

O’Brien said no one had yet taken her up on her offer, but she has a room set aside for when someone does. She told CNN that she’d dubbed the space “Jane’s Room” in honor of Jane Roe, the pseudonym given to Norma McCorvey, the plaintiff in the Roe v. Wade case that in 1973 established a woman’s right to an abortion throughout the U.S.

“The only way this is going to change is if people are willing to risk something,” O’Brien, who’s been called a “baby killer” for her views, told CNN. “The reason they get away with stuff like this is because nobody wants to make waves, nobody wants to give up anything for it.”

Singer Sheryl Crow says everyone is pro-life, including people who get abortions

From HuffPo: Sheryl Crow believes women should have the power to choose what to do with their own bodies.

“It’s not up to the government to decide what women do with their bodies,” the iconic singer said Wednesday on the red carpet for the CMT Music Awards. “We should have the opportunity to be in charge of our own bodies.”

Crow said the recent abortion bans in states like Georgia, Alabama and her home state of Missouri are simply “wrong,” adding that “everyone is pro-life” including people who get abortions.

“Particularly in the state of Missouri as well as, I believe it’s Alabama, I think there’s only two women in the entire … House of Representatives that are making the decisions,” she added. “So I feel like it’s wrong and I have always felt like the government needs to stay out of that.”

Planned Parenthood recently declared a state of emergency amid the sweeping anti-abortion restrictions implemented in several states across the country. In 2019 alone, 11 states have passed extreme anti-abortion restrictions or bans. Alabama passed by far the most extreme legislation last month, banning all abortions from the time a person knows they’re pregnant and providing no exceptions for rape or incest.

The United Nations commissioner of human rights recently said the U.S. is in “crisis” and likened the recent abortion laws to “torture.” “It’s an assault on truth, science and universal values and norms,” commissioner Kate Gilmore said on Wednesday.

Other stars who have spoken out against the anti-abortion restrictions include actresses Sophie Turner and Jessica Chastain, Ashley Judd, Alyssa Milano, Laverne Cox and Lena Waithe.

“Everyone is pro-life?”

Yeah, riiiiiiiiiiiight.

Netflix joins (sort of) fight against Georgia’s abortion law

Never had Netflix…never will.

From Hollywood Reporter: Netflix says it will fight a controversial abortion law in Georgia and may “rethink” its operations there should the law go into effect.

The company’s statement on the law is a rare public stance from one of the industry’s heavyweights; major studios have thus far remained silent on the legislation, which would ban abortions after the detection of a fetal heartbeat — which can happen as early as six weeks into pregnancy.

“We have many women working on productions in Georgia, whose rights, along with millions of others, will be severely restricted by this law,” Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement.

“It’s why we will work with the ACLU and others to fight it in court. Given the legislation has not yet been implemented, we’ll continue to film there — while also supporting partners and artists who choose not to. Should it ever come into effect, we’d rethink our entire investment in Georgia.

Thanks to generous state tax credits, Georgia has become a hub of film and TV production and employs some 90,000 people in the state. Since Gov. Brian Kemp signed the fetal-heartbeat bill May 7, at least two productions — Amazon series The Power from Reed Morano and Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo’s Lionsgate feature Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar — have said they will relocate their productions. Producers including David Simon, Christine Vachon, Mark Duplass, Neal Dodson and Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson have also said they will steer clear of the state for future productions.

Others, including J.J. Abrams and Jordan Peele (HBO’s Lovecraft Country) and Imagine’s Ron Howard and Brian Grazer (Netflix film Hillbilly Elegy), have said they will continue filming in Georgia but make donations to groups fighting the law.

“We stand with Stacey Abrams and the hardworking people of Georgia and will donate 100 percent of our respective episodic fees for this season to two organizations leading the charge against this draconian law: the ACLU of Georgia and Fair Fight Georgia,” said J.J. Abrams. “We encourage those who are able to funnel any and all resources to these organizations.”

Illinois demorats advance bill declaring a “fundamental right” to an abortion

From Daily Mail: House Democrats in Illinois have advanced a measure to replace the state’s abortion law with less restrictive language that gives people ‘a fundamental right’ to make decisions about their reproductive health.

The State Journal-Register reports a House committee approved the legislation late Sunday on a party-line vote, sending it to the House floor. All committee Republicans voted no.

Among other provisions, the bill requires private health insurance companies that cover pregnancy-related benefits to cover abortion.

Supporters say the measure is necessary to counter other states’ action to restrict abortion procedures and the appointment of U.S. Supreme Court justices who oppose abortion.

Republicans criticized Democrats, who control the Legislature and the governor’s office, for holding the hearing on the Sunday night of a holiday weekend and posting notice just one hour before the hearing.

Under the measure, reproductive health would be declared a ‘fundamental right.’

Women would have the right to ‘use or refuse reproductive health care’ during their pregnancy.

The action in Democratic-leaning Illinois follows actions in a series of Republican states to limit access to abortion.

A woman would gain additional routes to sue if she believes her rights are violated, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. And local governments would be barred from limiting access to contraception and health procedures, although they could pass rules that increase access to care.

A new Alabama law would make it a felony to perform most abortions, and doctors who carry them out could face sentences of up to 99 years in prison.
