A video has been surfacing on the internet, as you can see above, of Azealia Banks claiming to have been raped. She posted the audio and image to Instagram, fans say. As of right now, no news articles have reported her claim, and no police officials have come forward either. So much so that some people may even think this is a “cry wolf” situation. It was about two years ago when Banks filed a report on actor Russell Crowe for racial slurs and harassment at a party; Banks has had other encounters with other celebrities as well from singers like SZA, to drag queens like Katya that it’s no wonder this allegation of rape is being questioned. Regardless though, she needs to file a report with the police if this is in fact true.
China is cracking down on queer contact once again. Homosexual content is now forbidden on social networking sites like Weibo. This action made by president Xi, who people are referring to as a dictator now, has sparked numerous protest throughout the country: I am Gay! This isn’t the first time China has banned queer content and I’m sure it won’t be the last. First, it started with banning homosexuals on television then it escalated to the internet. Even through it all, one lesbian decides to come forward on a social media site, Reddit, to talk about being a lesbian in China.
She says: This picture of mine was taken in this week. I’m 24, working in an Internet company in Shenzhen, China. When I was senior in college, not even a moment of considering find a job in hometown. I love the place I grow up in, but not the atmosphere and a life with little possibility. Once you choose to settle in a small town, it’s likely that there’s not much surprise for you in the future. You might lead a life with absolute peace, in the meantime you’d get confined, mentally. Especially when you’re a LGBTQ+ I was impulsive enough to challenge my mom – I came out to her. She refused to accept the truth. My cousin is a doctor, she said: ”How about asking your cousin to recommend a doctor to you…” As I was meditating about how to convince her that being homosexual doesn’t mean being ill, she kept talking:” A doctor as boyfriend?” Speechless seconds. There’s no way to make her accept the idea since she’s sure that I was being too young and immature. For now, all I do is working harder and striving to be independent. Glad to be a member of this community. Welcome to ask me anything. I might reply late due to time difference, but I promise I’ll answer as best as I can. Thank you all!
For the most part, all of the questions are the same such as what it’s like to be a lesbian in China. She answers their questions, all of their questions as best as she can saying the younger generation is more open to queer people even though they mostly just think of gay and straight; that they don’t really think or pay attention to bisexuals or binaries, etc, etc, etc. She says the older generation is much more traditional but that can be expected of course. Another common question that kept popping up was the censorship in China. Most people use VPNs in China but Reddit and 4Chan are one of the rare sites not banned in China. Another question that popped up was social credit. I actually never heard of this and I had to look it up, but basically, it’s a surveillance system via data technologically(I’m gonna stay up to date on this).
Update on the lesbian couple that drove their kids off a cliff. Last month it was announced that the mothers of the boy shown hugging a police officer, drove their van off a cliff. That two of the kids were dead and three were missing. Well since then, there have been numerous updates but the media for the most part isn’t really talking about it. Mostly local news have been covering the rest of the case. Nonetheless, it has come to surface that the two women had a history of abuse; one of the women even had domestic abuse in regards to her partner. Reports came in that apparently the family was trying to out run the CPS agency due to complaints filed by neighbors. It was said the children were home schooled when before the kids used to be in public school. It was while in public school when one of the kids who was six at the time, told her teacher her mommies were hitting her. Following in the later years, CPS would visit their home numerous times from complaints that were filed against the two women and the abuse against their children. After this incident folded, an ex-foster child had come forward to talk about her time with the Harts. This foster child had nothing but good experiences until the Harts abandoned her. Prior to the morning of the incident, Sarah texted a friend at three in the morning, saying she was feeling sick. Jennifer Hart was said to have been drunk and the kids drugged(a body was also discovered near by but DNA will take a while). It was also revealed yesterday that Devonte’s aunt actually fought for custody but lost even though she had a stable job, and income in Houston, Texas(the children are all from Texas). Finally as of recent, Devonte’s biological mom talks about racism and how six black kids were taken from their homes to live with two white women who were abusing them for years.
It’s hard to say who was abusing who when it comes to Jennifer and Sarah Hart, but there’s more than enough evidence to show that these women were abusing the children. I also hate to throw out the race card and I rarely do but these black children were taken from their black families in Texas. Yes, the mom was a drug addict and that is reasonable. However, when they gave these kids to these two women who had a history of abuse, and who ended up getting complaints about abuse, the CPS and authorities did nothing. Even when Devonte’s aunt fought to gain custody for the kids to come back to Texas, they allowed these six black children back in the hands of these two white women who had a history of abuse! If there’s evidence of abuse, why would they let children remain there if they can live in a better environment?
The three kids who don’t have their faces circle in blue are still missing! And the media isn’t putting their faces out there at all!
