I make no claims to being an expert in this area, however, my only comment is that I believe in the separation of church and state, totally and 100%. I don't think there is a gray area.
With that said, here are a few interesting facts about the new religious liberty order. The good news is that gays are not being targeted, but we're going to have to wait and see how that unfolds.
The order doesn’t specifically allow religious groups to discriminate against gay people. But what it does do is state that “it is the policy of the administration to protect and vigorously promote religious liberty.” Trump hardly cares about policy. But his appointees do. And the order sends a signal to the religious right’s henchmen in the Trump administration to do their best to erode protections. Don’t think they won’t apply themselves to that task gleefully.
You can check the rest out here. I don't want to jump to conclusions too soon, but between this order and the Trumpcare bill, I still have a feeling that Trump is going to wind up being a one term President if he continues to do things like this. But more than that, I believe the mid-term elections will see even more widespread change.
Jaden Smith's High Heels
On a much lighter note, because we need something lighter sometimes, here's something about Jaden Smith and his gender-bending tendencies. And I like it. Good for him. Men...all men...are always expected to look and dress the same. Women can paint their faces with anything they want, but God forbid a man even uses a bronzer. And I think most of us are getting sick and tired of it. Who made these rules anyway?
Dressed smartly in his futuristic space-vampire regalia, Smith shows off his ass-kicking high heels, and then gives Talley a quick primer on his glimmering gold teeth. (Don’t worry: There are some diamonds in there too.)
You can check this out here. I'm going to get into a lot more about this topic with my next release, Kindle's Fire. Kindle's an ex-marine who has always questioned why he's always been expected to conform to society's rules and the social restrictions placed upon men.
Sense 8's Mark Riemelt Talks About Sex Scenes and Full Frontal Male Nudity
If you haven't watched Sense 8, you're missing something excellent. I got hooked with the first show and I didn't even know there would be gay content. I didn't know there would be full frontal male nudity either.
Like I said, there’s going to be more! It’s also the way Lana portrays these sex scenes; it’s more like an oil painting you like to look on, not the physical act of two people putting something into each other. It’s like a melting pot that shows what’s possible when you just think about what you feel when you have sex. It’s not that very simple, single image you have of sex; it describes a feeling you could have when you have someone you feel connected to. It’s a beautiful sex scene, which is really rare nowadays; it’s not something people like to think of as pornographic.
You can check this out here. There's more about the new season of Sense 8, which I believe is starting on Friday.
