It appears the socially conservative right has racked up a small win against the liberal agenda. Walmart stores will no longer carry trashy feminist Cosmopolitan Magazine in their checkout lines as the result of pressure from a socially conservative group that advocated for such a removal due to Cosmo’s unsavory sexual content marketed to young girls. National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) applauded the win in a press release. “This is what real change looks like in our #MeToo culture, and NCOSE is proud to work with a major corporation like Walmart to combat sexually exploitative influences in our society,” said executive director Dawn Hawkins. “Further, Cosmo targets young girls by placing former Disney stars on its covers, despite the enclosed sexually erotic articles which describe risky sexual acts like public, intoxicated, or anal sex in detail,” she added. “Customers should not be forced to be exposed to this content when they are … [Read more...] about WIN: Walmart Will No Longer Carry Feminist Trash ‘Cosmo’ At Checkout Lines.

Peter Andre is proudly paying tribute to his idol Michael Jackson by starring as the global megastar in the West End musical Thriller - but his staunch belief Jackson did nothing wrong is still raising eyebrows. Dad of four Peter remains good friends with members of the Jackson family and was one of the very few celebrities who came out in support of Michael when the Leaving Neverland documentary aired in the UK earlier this year. In the Dan Reed-made documentary, Wade Robson and James Safechuck made a series of bombshell claims about their childhood friendship with Jackson, which they said turned to grooming, molestation and sexual abuse when they were still below the age of consent. But Peter spoke out in favour of his idol, telling This Morning in June 2019 that he had "faith" in Jackson's innocence. The Australian singer, 46, was just a child when he entered a 1987 dance competition which offered youngsters the opportunity to win a face-to-face with Michael. Peter came second to … [Read more...] about Peter Andre’s chillingly complex relationship with idol Michael Jackson as he stars in Thriller

Fiction The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead (Doubleday) In this magnificent novel, Whitehead once again draws inspiration from true atrocities of America's past, this time creating a fictional account of a real-life Florida reform school for boys that was infamous for torturing and killing its poor black students, and then secretly burying their bodies, in the 1960s. Whitehead builds his story around Elwood Curtis, an ambitious, socially conscious, law-abiding teenager in Tallahassee who gets into the wrong car on his first day of elective community college classes and winds up arrested for auto theft. His sentence is enrollment at the Nickel Academy — which, despite its solid reputation, turns out to be built on cruelty, racism, and corruption. As Curtis discovers that his good behavior and best intentions won't be enough to keep him safe, his worldview shifts, and survival becomes more of a strategy. Whitehead's prose is meticulous; he nimbly shifts between the 1960s … [Read more...] about These Are The Best Books Of 2019
