Netflix Removes LGBTQ Tag From DAHMER Series After Backlash

“Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” by Ryan Murphy is the No. 1 show on Netflix. but after online backlash Netflix decided to remove its LGBTQ tag from the “shockumentary” series.

Portrayed by Evan Peters in the series, Jeffrey Dahmer raped, murdered and dismembered 17 men and boys in Wisconsin between 1978 and 1991, according to People, many of whom he lured home from gay nightclubs. He engaged in cannibalism or necrophilia with some of the bodies.

“I feel like it fetishizes this whole horrible moment in Milwaukee history. It shouldn’t be looked at that way, it just feels completely wrong,” drag performer B.J. Daniels told WISN. “I know a lot of my friends, and a lot of people who lived through this period, will not be watching it. They will not be putting money into somebody’s pocket that is literally disturbing the graves of victims.”

Netflix also tagged the Dahmer series with “Ominous” and Dark,” earlier this year Netflix released Conversations With A Killer: The John Wayne Gacy Tapes about the prolific serial killer who murdered 33 boys in Chicago which is also tagged “Ominous” and Dark, but was not tagged LGBTQ

TEXAS Sues USDA Over Added LGBT Protections In Food Supplement Programs

TEXAS Sues USDA Over Added LGBT Protections In Food Supplement Programs

Last May, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced that food assistance programs that receive funding from the Food and Nutrition Service were ordered to “investigate allegations of discrimination based on gender identity or sexual orientation” and to update their policies to specifically prohibit discrimination based on gender identity or sexual orientation.

Of course Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is challenging the federal Food and Nutrition Service’s new policy.

Paxton claims the guidance issued by the USDA is “unlawful” because states were not consulted and did not have an opportunity to provide feedback, in accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act. They also argue that the USDA is misinterpreting the Supreme Court case Bostock v. Clayton County, which extended sexual discrimination in the workplace to include discrimination based on gender identity or sexual orientation.

“[It] will inevitably result in regulatory chaos that threatens essential nutritional services to some of the most vulnerable citizens,” Paxton’s office said in a press release.

Tuesday’s lawsuit was filed in the Eastern District of Tennessee Knoxville Division

Kindred Foundation to Still Hold Disney Gay Days, Begs LGBTQ Attendance After “Don’t Say Gay” Disaster

Working with One Magical Weekend (They Gay Days Circuit Party around Disney, ) The KindRED Pride Foundation which wanted to expand on the traditional Gay Days and ask that all LGBTQ visitors wear RED t-shirts to identify each other are BOTH going ahead with this years Gay Day’s and sending out emails telling attendees to ignore all calls for boycott despite the fact that the Walt Disney Company threw the states LGBTQ kids under the bus and helped set gay rights back more than 30 years in Florida.\

BOTH groups should be utterly embarrassed and ashamed to be holding such an event after Disney turned it’s back on our community. But it seems greed trumps civil rights to the money hungry vapid queens who run Gay Days and those gays who have too much money, have no empathy, and no respect for others or themselves.

Iranian law allows that if a victim’s family forgives the accused in a capital crime, the convict can be either pardoned or given a jail sentence. But her father demanded death sentence still be imposed and the court found in his favor, the paper added.

According to human rights group Amnesty International, Iran carried out 246 executions last year.
