Republican Governor In Mass Signs Trans Rights Bill

Republican Governor Charlie Baker of Massachusetts recently signed a pro trans rights bill that will help stop LGBT discrimination.

‘No one should be discriminated against in Massachusetts because of their gender identity,’ Baker, a Republican, said in a statement.

The Massachusetts House of Representatives passed the bill last month after a version had already been passed by the State Senate. 


There's more here.

There are only two comments, both seem to be spam bots.

John Barrowman and Threats In Montreal

Evidently, John Barrowman canceled an event planned for today in Montreal and they're blaming it on an "unspecified" threat.

‘This morning an email was sent that directly referenced me and in light of recent events, I’ve decided to take the advice of my management, and family, as they were concerned for my safety,’ the out actor wrote on Facebook.

‘We are working with the convention to arrange for security that not only keeps me safe, but also all of you who come to see me,’ he continued. ‘I’m really sorry I have had to cancel my panel, and photo ops, this weekend. I will be signing later today once security has been arranged. Please check with the promoter, and social media, for updates on where and when I will be signing.’ 


You can read the rest here. I rarely mention it, but the main reason why I use comment moderation is because of threats I've received. They don't bother me too much anymore. I'm used to it. But I don't want my readers to be distressed with things like that. It's just not a positive thing to see, so I keep it to myself.

We travel up to northern Vermont a few times a year, which is on the US/Canada border, and it's only miles from Montreal. It seems like the safest place in the universe to me.  

High School Basketball Coach Secretly Films Dudes Showering

This is pretty creepy.

 A high school boys’ basketball coach has been charged for filming players on the team taking showers in the locker room.

Zachary Patrick Roberts, 28, who was a coach at the Janesville-Waldorf-Pemberton High School in Minnesota is facing multiple charges for his alleged use of a pen-camera to record naked boys in the school’s locker room.


Here's the rest. I hate to see kids being used and exploited this way.
