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.’

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.

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.”

Actress Alyssa Milano calls for sex strike to protest Georgia pro-life heartbeat law

The source of the GIF is this YouTube video

In late March, 50 Hollyweirdos signed a letter threatening to boycott the state of Georgia for the state Senate’s approval of HB 481: Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act, aka fetal heartbeat bill, which recognizes unborn children as “natural persons” and that the “full value of a child begins when a heartbeat exists” — typically at six weeks’ gestation.

See “Alyssa Milano and 50 Hollyweirdos sign letter threatening to boycott Georgia for prolife ‘heartbeat’ bill

To Georgia’s credit, the state legislators and Governor Brian Kemp, a Republican, refused to be bullied. Georgia’s House of Representatives also approved the bill, which Governor Kemp signed into law last Tuesday, May 7, 2019, which bans abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected — usually around six weeks of pregnancy. The state previously prohibited abortion after 20 weeks, with exceptions.

In response to Georgia, the blood-thirsty Hollyweirdos, led by the has-been and rode-hard actress Alyssa Milano, 46, are stepping up their bullying.

Desperate for attention, Milano exposed her sagging, middle-aged boobs in a low-cut blouse at SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate hearing, October 2018

On May 10, 2019, Milano called for a sex-strike by women to protest Georgia’s fetal heartbeat law. She posted this tweet:

Here are some hilarious responses to her tweet:

“Yaay!!”

“Thank you for taking yourself out of the gene pool.”

“Great idea. Liberal extinction.”

“No One Cares”

“You mean abstinence? Cool.”

“That’s probably the best choice you did in your life. Keep up the good work.”

“YESSSS. Do us all a favor and NOT have sex if you intend on having an ABORTION!!! GREAT IDEA!!! KUDOS….MAGA”

“Yes! Great idea! Please have as many abortion supporters do this as possible. That way laws about abortion will become unnecessary and we won’t have to debate this anymore.”

“Abortion isn’t a ‘reproductive right.’ You do not have the ‘right’ to kill another human being just because it’s dependent on you. Also, if you stop having sex you won’t get pregnant anyway….that how it works if no one has told you yet.”

”So you’re going to preach body autonomy by telling other women what to do with their bodies? While marginalizing women by suggesting their only power in this comes from between their legs?”

“I think I speak for countless people when I say that I believe you should take a . Indefinitely. I hope you get the help you so clearly need.”

“Whenever I need a good laugh I come to this account. It never fails”

Alyssa Milano and 50 Hollyweirdos sign letter threatening to boycott Georgia for prolife ‘heartbeat’ bill

There is a pro-life bill in Georgia’s state legislature, HB 481: Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act, aka fetal heartbeat bill, which recognizes unborn children as “natural persons” and that the “full value of a child begins when a heartbeat exists” — typically at six weeks’ gestation.

The source of the GIF is this YouTube video.

Accordingly, the bill requires physicians performing abortions to determine the existence of a detectable human heartbeat before performing an abortion. “No abortion is authorized or shall be performed if an unborn child has been determined in accordance with Code Section 31-9B-2 to have a detectable human heartbeat”.

The bill defines a detectable human heartbeat as “embryonic or fetal cardiac activity or the steady and repetitive rhythmic contraction of the heart within the gestational sac.” HB 481 furthermore states that “unless otherwise provided by law, any natural person, including an unborn child with a detectable human heartbeat, shall be included in population based determinations.”

The bill allows for some exceptions to the prohibition against aborting an unborn child with a detectable human heartbeat:

  1. “when a physician determines in reasonable medical judgment, that a medical emergency exists”.
  2. when “the probable gestational age of the unborn child is 20 weeks or less and the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest in which an official police report has been filed alleging the offense of rape or incest.”
  3. If the physician determines the “pregnancy is medically futile.”

On March 22, 2019, by a vote of 34-18, the Georgia Senate passed HB 481. The bill now goes to Georgia’s House of Representatives for agreement before making its way to the desk of Governor Brian Kemp, a Republican, who had promised his support on the campaign trail and has reiterated his position since. With his approval, Georgia will join Kentucky and Mississippi in recently approving such legislation. Iowa did so last year. A heartbeat bill in Tennessee has passed the House of Representatives. (Christian Index)

Georgia’s fetal heartbeat bill so incensed blood-thirsty Hollyweirdos that about 50 of them signed a letter threatening to boycott the state if Governor Kemp signs the bill into law.

The letter was written by actress Alyssa Milano, 46, the has-been, rode-hard actress who wore a cleavage-bearing low-cut blouse to SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate hearing last October.

The letter was sent to Governor Kemp and Georgia House Speaker David Ralston (R), yesterday, March 28. The letter says:

As actors, our work often brings us to Georgia…. We’ve been glad to bring millions of dollars in revenue to support Georgia’s schools, parks and communities.

But we cannot in good conscience continue to recommend our industry remain in Georgia if H.B. 481 becomes law.

This dangerous and deeply-flawed bill…would…force many women to undergo unregulated, hidden procedures at great risk to their health.

We can’t imagine being elected officials who had to say to their constituents, “I enacted a law that was so evil, it chased billions of dollars out of our state’s economy.” It’s not the most effective campaign slogan, but rest assured we’ll make it yours should it come to pass….

We want to stay in Georgia…. But we will…do everything in our power to move our industry to a safer state for women if H.B. 481 becomes law.

According to Deadline and Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the actors who signed the letter  include Uzo Aduba (who’s dat?), Christina Applegate, Essence Atkins (who’s dat?), Alec Baldwin, Don Cheadle, David Cross, Mia Farrow, Colin Hanks, Rosie O’Donnell, Patton Oswalt, Sean Penn, Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman, Ben Stiller, Amber Tamblyn, Gabrielle Union, and Bradley Whitford.
