Why are gay men obsessed with powerful women?

Why are gay men obsessed with powerful women?

Many of us credit a powerful female celeb with giving us the courage to bust out of the closet.Pride20 hours agoI knew there was something different about me when I first heard Cher’s “Believe.” Her robot voice belted over the radio while I was on my way to my first grade class, and the sheer strength of her vocals shook my organs. I couldn’t tell if the person singing was a man or a woman, where they came from, or what, exactly, they were singing about. All I knew was that the music I was hearing made me feel free.When I learned who Cher was years later, I became obsessed with both her...

Trump's latest pardoning spree is just corruption at its purest

Trump's latest pardoning spree is just corruption at its purest

Just one day after responsible for the in Iraq, President Donald Trump continued his sprint toward the end of his administration with a late Wednesday evening. While this latest round of beneficiaries doesn't sink to the amoral depths of Tuesday's quartet of literal war criminals, it does highlight Trump at his most unambiguously corrupt. Nestled within the of 25 full pardon recipients, and three additional people who received sentence commutations are former Trump campaign head Paul Manafort, flamboyant Trump consiglieri Roger Stone, and Charles Kushner, father of Trump's son-in-law and...

Trump's promise to "work tirelessly" on Christmas means golfing with buddies and ignoring COVID relief

Trump's promise to "work tirelessly" on Christmas means golfing with buddies and ignoring COVID relief

Despite his family's for Christmastime at the White House, Donald Trump has chosen to spend his last holiday season as president in Florida at Mar a Lago, the so-called "Winter White House" to which he frequently retreats when it comes time to do . Under normal circumstances, this would not in and of itself be all that noteworthy. Presidents frequently take some time off around the holidays (or, at least, ease up on their ordinarily breakneck schedules as much as the responsibilities of their office allows) and Trump is hardly the first executive to . But these are not normal circumstances,...

Trump reportedly baffled that Mike Pence can't simply declare him president again

Trump reportedly baffled that Mike Pence can't simply declare him president again

Donald Trump's attempts to overturn the he received in November have been both — so much so that the posed by an unstable autocrat doing his best to pull off an have been mitigated (or at least obscured) by the sheer of the whole thing. With his options in the courts dwindling, Trump has now reportedly set his sights on that will cement Joe Biden as the next President of the United States, once and for all. That certification — essentially the final, prerequisite formality in Joe Biden's home stretch sprint to Inauguration Day — is traditionally overseen by the President of the Senate,...

Michael Flynn wants Trump to send the military into swing states to "rerun" the election there

Michael Flynn wants Trump to send the military into swing states to "rerun" the election there

Former three-star general, Defense Intelligence chief, and National Security Adviser has hardly been shy about his, erm, enthusiastic support for President Trump — all the more so after Trump for lying to the FBI as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the 2016 president election. But even the that's colored Flynn's political activism of late seems fairly quaint in comparison to his most recent interview with the ultra-right-wing Newsmax network — Trump's favorite post-Fox rebound date — in which he essentially advocated for a military coup to redo last month's...

Turns out Trump is running a nice grift off the Georgia Senate runoffs

Turns out Trump is running a nice grift off the Georgia Senate runoffs

It shouldn't exactly come as a surprise that President Trump's post-election fundraising scheme is, shall we say, not entirely on the level. This is, after all, a man who has spent his entire public career both in and out of politics running various and enacting designed to benefit himself, and no one else. For a time, that blatant enterprise of self-enrichment was tolerated — even encouraged — by conservatives with the president and his equally avaricious brood. But with his administration on its way out the door, and his political future uncertain, Trump's post-election fundraising...

These shadowy groups are spending millions to put Amy Coney Barrett on the Supreme Court

Senate Republicans have made it clear that nothing — not, not the overwhelming, — will stop them from putting Amy Coney Barrett on the Supreme Court. And according to filings made with the Federal Elections Commission and compiled by, they aren't alone in their effort. Billionaires, interest groups, and lobbyists have already poured tens of millions of dollars into advertising campaigns urging Barrett's confirmation, the Sludge report found. Among the biggest backers are energy executives, Big Oil interest groups, and supporters of the continued use of fossil fuels. The roster of Barrett’s...

Study Reveals It Costs Less to Give the Homeless Housing Than to Leave Them on the Street

The news: A new study has found that it's to house the homeless than leave them on the streets. University of North Carolina Charlotte researchers on Monday that tracked chronically homeless adults housed in the Moore Place facility run by Charlotte's Urban Ministry Center (UMC) in partnership with local government.
