    A transgender woman from Florida went missing a week ago during a layover at DFW International Airport, and her family is asking for help finding her. Pauline del Mundo, 59, was passing through DFW Airport on Sept. 14 on her way from Tampa to Cozumel, Mexico, but never took her connecting flight on American Airlines. She instead called a family member saying she had changed her mind about traveling to Cozumel but needed help getting a plane...

    The U.S. women's national soccer team is back on home soil following its victorious World Cup run in France. The last time the team was in this position, in 2015, it couldn't wait to celebrate with President Obama. But, it's a different story this year. Megan Rapinoe, one of the most vocal and recognizable players on the team, has already told the press she's "not f***ing going" to Trump's White House. As one of the openly gay players on the team, she doesn't believe Trump represents LGBT citizens. It's one of the reasons she's also refused to recite the national...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) warned that “the US is headed toward becoming a fascist country. On the one hand, we see continued attempts to prevent foreigners from entering the United States just because it is illegal. Then when the Border Patrol fails to prevent entry they’re holding these people in concentration camps. In what way is this significantly different from what Hitler did?” “Then, just this past week we saw antifascists forced to go out into the streets of Portland and beat up enemies of progressive policies,” the Congresswoman said. “Even though they had the backing of Portland Mayor Ted...

    Hillary Clinton was in Houston Friday to speak at a fundraiser. But she also took time to strike a pose. The former presidential candidate sat down to be photographed for Pride Portraits, a Houston-based campaign meant to fully represent the LGBTQI community and its allies. **SNIP** "Hillary Clinton entered the room with that powerful, winning smile and thanked me for the opportunity to be a part of the campaign. I let her know why today was so important to not only me and the campaign but thousands of LGBTQIA+ community members," Schell says.

    When we talk about Glocks, most of us usually think these are used by law enforcement for service or for personal protection. Handgun hunting is really not at the top of the list, but there are the few minority that carry Glocks for hunting. Most folks either love it or hate it. So, according to Youtuber Braydon Price having a Glock 10mm was a good choice to have for his situation. He was able to take down a big whitetail buck. For this situation, Braydon went with his Glock 40 since it was easier for him to pull it out...
  • Ariana Grande's tattoo says "BBQ Grill" in Japanese instead of "7 rings"

    See BS ^ | 1/30/19 | CAITLIN O'KANE
    In celebration of her new hit single, "7 Rings," pop star Ariana Grande got a new tattoo on the palm of her hand, paying homage to the song and its music video. The star said she had the phrase "7 rings" tattooed in Kanji, a Japanese style of writing. But it actually spells "BBQ Grill," as some of Grande's Japanese fans quickly pointed out. The two characters separately mean seven (七) and ring (輪), but together "七輪" means Shichirin, the name for a small charcoal grill. Amazon offers several 七輪 for sale. The combined characters roughly translate to "7 wheels"...

    Trends come and trends go. My parents were dirt poor, so there are no pictures of me in parachute pants, thankfully. Likewise, since my parents were super-strict fundamentalist Christians, there are no photos of me with a mullet or, worse, a rat tail. Many of my friends, though, have embarrassing photos of themselves sporting now-discarded embarrassing clothing and hair trends. Like past style trends, the new trend of women sporting unicorn armpit hair is producing an avalanche of photo evidence that will undoubtedly be smirked at by future generations. Unlike many past style trends, unicorn armpit hair is rooted in...

    It's 2019. We need to stop shaming women who refuse to succumb to stereotypical gender norms-women have every right to embrace their body hair. Gloriously, the first month of the new year has been dubbed "Januhairy," an ongoing celebration on social media encouraging women to grow out and show off their body hair. Now, women are dynamic, radiant, vibrant beings-so, naturally, Januhairy got really colorful. On Instagram, some women are dying their armpit hair in rainbow shades and calling them #UnicornPits. Girls just wanna have fun.

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) declined the White House chief of staff role on Friday, making him the latest high-profile candidate who's no longer in the running for the influential post. Christie and President Trump reportedly met Thursday evening to discuss the role of replacing John Kelly, who will be departing as chief of staff by the end of the year. “It’s an honor to have the President consider me as he looks to choose a new White House chief-of-staff,” Christie wrote in a statement shared by Maggie Haberman of the New York Times on Friday. “However, I’ve...

    Beto O’Rourke is calling for the removal of a controversial Confederate plaque hanging in the Texas State Capitol building, tweeting on Tuesday to “take it down today.” The plaque contains the Children of the Confederacy’s creed, which is a statement that pledges “to study and teach the truths of history (one of the most important of which is, that the War between the States was not a rebellion, nor was its underlying cause to sustain slavery).”

    And it turns out in 2016, the federal government decided it a worthy cause to fund a study to see if taking selfies increases happiness. It involved creating two smartphone apps for participants to take photos and record their moods...documenting responses and mapping conclusions: the total cost was about $500,000. “We spent close to a half a million dollars on this study and I think they ought to give it back,” said Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) in an interview last week, calling it an excessive and unnecessary use of our tax dollars... But supporters say it's also a minuscule amount...
