Butt, Club, and Girls: RuPaul Would'Probably Not Let a Transitioning Queen on Drag Race Strai Ta wi Photography: Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP <p><a href="https://ithelpstodream.tumblr.com/post/171523211800/in-a-new-interview-with-the-guardian-rupaul-stood" class="tumblr_blog">ithelpstodream</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>In a new interview with the Guardian, RuPaul stood firm on his stance that trans women and bio-queens are unwelcome on Drag Race. After explaining that drag’s political power lies in the dissonance of “men dressing up as women,” Ru was asked if he’d allow a “biological woman” to compete on the show.</p> <p>“Drag loses its sense of danger and its sense of irony once it’s not men doing it, because at its core it’s a social statement and a big f-you to male-dominated culture,“ RuPaul tells Guardian. &ldquo;So for men to do it, it’s really punk rock, because it’s a real rejection of masculinity.” When asked if trans women can be drag queens, he brings up season nine contestant Peppermint, who was the first out trans woman to compete on the show. “Mmmm. It’s an interesting area. Peppermint didn’t get breast implants until after she left our show; she was identifying as a woman, but she hadn’t really transitioned.”</p> <p>The interviewer goes on to ask if RuPaul would allow a trans woman who was actively transitioning to compete. “Probably not. You can identify as a woman and say you’re transitioning, but it changes once you start changing your body. It takes on a different thing; it changes the whole concept of what we’re doing. We’ve had some girls who’ve had some injections in the face and maybe a little bit in the butt here and there, but they haven’t transitioned.”</p> <p>These statements go to show how antiquated RuPaul’s conceptions of trans identity and the queering of gender really are. For someone who is deservedly lauded as an icon of genderfuckery, the fact that RuPaul still sees drag as a boys’ club is disappointing, not to mention the fact that he reduces trans identity to whether or not a person has had surgery. The notion that the only true power to be found in an art form that has expanded so much since RuPaul came up seems insulting in the face of the incredible female artists — both cisgender and trans — who are doing drag today, largely thanks to the influence of Drag Race.</p> <p><a href="https://www.out.com/popnography/2018/3/03/rupaul-would-probably-not-let-transitioning-queen-drag-race">https://www.out.com/popnography/2018/3/03/rupaul-would-probably-not-let-transitioning-queen-drag-race</a></p></blockquote> <p>Wait&hellip; if he won’t let cis women be on the show, then isn’t he just being consistent here by viewing trans women as real women?</p>

Bad, Chill, and Drunk: this is my good boy HendriX. eDiSmahlove Pic: reddit u/bigfatpup rs Shout to the cheeto man I had him all wrong. I really did. He is in fact a brilliant leader, lemme splain u why. The average starting teach salary in this country is $36,141. For that amount per year she gotta come into work at a hella absurdly early hour like 5:50 am for no reason other than schools are still tied to the antiquated agrarian system where people awoke at sun up to take they kids to school and tend the crops. She gotta deal with all type of coffee breath from fellow coworkers. She gotta deal with Todd the kindygarten teacher with the terrible bicep tattoo and outdated nerd glasses like not the new joints that’s sleek but like the Randy Jackson joints who hit on every, single female teacher. She gotta deal with bad a$$ misbehaving kids. Angry helicopter parents. By the time Friday come around she so exhausted, so beat, so withered that the only thing she got energy for is to crawl home, pop that bottle of wine, pack that bowl, and text smash like “long week zaddy come beat the brakes off this lil Nani lol wyd tho don’t say Work nobody works on Friday 😤”. Ok Kristine, Mandy and Samantha chill Imma get to all of u sequentially in order LOL JUST KIDDING CHILL PEOPLE DAMN. Anyway in addition to all this stress and heartache for $36k-year the cheeto wanna give these poor young tings firearms and bulletproof vests to confront deranged murderers when they go on shooting rampages at schools. Now lemme get this straight. Video footage shows that the trained, armed cop that came to the school in Boca Raton was too scared to enter the school because this kid was firing extended clips off a AR-15. But Mandy, on her fourth cup of coffee because she still low key wine drunk on a Thursday morning bc she polished a bottle off the night before bc she couldn’t wait till Friday ... MANDY ... all 5 foot 1 of her ... is expected to strap a gun to her leg and do the work a trained cop won’t do and engage a killer brandishing an army rifle. Cheeto, I had u underestimated my dude! U are indeed a wondrous repository of good ideas and good leadership - I had u wrong! My deepest apologies. Nothing but respect for my president 🇺🇸😂😂😂

Although, the headline named Larry Flynt and Hustler Magazine as the financiers, it wasn’t confirmed until Flynt retweeted the photo on his own account. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the ad, Flynt said that “after nine tumultuous month in office, Trump has proven that he’s dangerously unfit to exercise the extreme power accrued by our new ‘unitary executive,” adding that the presidency is “illegitimate.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He then goes on to detail the long list of Trump's questionable acts from the firing of James Comey to his failure to denounce white supremacist, and his “hundreds of bald-faced lies.” In the ad, he also says Trump’s “worrisome” ability to “trigger a nuclear world war” is one of the more “horrifying” reasons that he needs to get the boot. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Impeachment would be a messy, contentious affair, but the alternative –three more years of destabilizing dysfunction – is worse,” he wrote. “Both good Democrats and good Republicans who put country over party did it before with Watergate.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But, he says he still needs “unimpeachable evidence,” adding that “we need to flush everything out into the open,” to get Trump out of office. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, this is not the first time Flynt has offered up his own money to bring things to the light. In October of 2016, he offered $1 million for evidence of Trump “engaging in illegal activity or acting in a sexually demeaning or derogatory manner.” Back in 1998, he offered $1 million and again in 2007 for “documented evidence of illicit sexual liaisons with a prominent member of public office,” against BillClinton.

Food, Memes, and Protein: Progress! Canada's New Draft Food Guidelines Favors Plant-Based Protein and Eliminates Dairy As a Food Group Canada Canada adaane Votre santé et votre Eating Well with Canada Food Guide www.riseofthevegan.com The Canadian government has issued new draft healthy eating recommendations, which would overhaul the antiquated system of food categories-focusing instead on eating patterns-and emphasize the importance of including a "high proportion of plant-based foods." The milk category is indeed gone in the draft recommendations, and healthy legumes are elevated above animal foods. www.riseofthevegan.com lG | @veganbodybuildingンム 🌱🇨🇦🔥The Canadian government has issued new draft healthy eating recommendations, which would overhaul the antiquated system of food categories—focusing instead on eating patterns—and emphasize the importance of including a “high proportion of plant-based foods.” The milk category is indeed gone in the draft recommendations, and the powerhouse legume has been elevated above animal foods. _ The draft food guide’s first, foundational recommendation establishes the importance of whole foods and specifies that plant-based foods (such as legumes) are a preferred source of protein. The recommendation is for “regular intake of vegetables, fruit, whole grains and protein-rich foods, especially plant-based sources of protein.” _ The draft guidelines also encourage a shift away from animal foods by advising that people eat foods with unsaturated fat instead of saturated fat (saturated fat is found almost exclusively in animal foods). The recommendation is for the “inclusion of foods that contain mostly unsaturated fat, instead of foods that contain mostly saturated fat.” _ There’s no more dairy food group, a win not only for public health but also cultural inclusivity, given that up to 90 percent of some non-European ethnicities are lactose intolerant. It’s also a huge win for the cows who really don’t want us to kill their babies so we can steal their milk. Instead, the guidelines will sensibly advise people to drink water. _ The draft guidelines acknowledge that our food system is inextricably linked to our environment, contributing to greenhouse gas emissions, soil degradation, decreases in water quality and availability, and wildlife loss. The draft food guide states that “diets higher in plant-based foods and lower in animal-based foods are associated with a lesser environmental impact.” Expanding our conception of health to include environmental considerations makes sense because our short- and long-term mental and physical health are directly related to the health—or not—of our environment. _ Clickable link to full article in @veganbodybuilding profile. _ riseofthevegan vegan canada
