I could not begin to imagine what it would feel like going through life feeling as if I was born in the wrong body. The mental anguish that one endures probably mirrors hell on earth. This was the case for 44 year old Nathan Verhelst. Nathan, originally born a female told newspapers hours before his death “I was the girl that nobody wanted.”
Verhelst told the reporters he grew up in an unloving family, feeling like a boy trapped in a girl’s body. He finally started hormone therapy in 2009 and underwent several reassignment surgeries in 2012. While doctors did not publicly share the specifics of the surgeries, Verhelst told the reporters that after the procedures, he felt like a monster. “I was ready to celebrate my new birth. But when I looked in the mirror, I was disgusted with myself,” he told the newspaper. “My new breasts did not match my expectations and my penis had symptoms of rejection.”
Verhelst applied for euthanasia several months ago and finally died on Monday in a Brussels hospital. His request was approved based on a 2002 law that makes Belgium one of only three countries in the world that have legalized euthanasia, along with Luxembourg and the Netherlands. Continue reading
I’m sooooo confused help! I’m married have been for about a year. My husband is a great provider and a wonderful father. He is a hard worker and takes good care of his family. But he has one problem…The bedroom boom! It seems like the older he gets the worst it has become and he’s only 32. I tried to ask him to go to the doctor maybe the doctor can prescribe him something but he always says “I’m way too young to be taking medication. I’m sexually frustrated, angry all the time, and majority of the time I hate even having sex because I know what to expect which is nothing but a 2 minute session of nothing. I have cheated only once with a good friend of mine. And now the friend has confessed feelings for me and says he’s always been in love with me, I feel something for him too, we were never in a relationship because he too was married. He is no longer married and wants to be with me, he too is a wonderful person I contemplated on this for months but I don’t want to hurt my husband we’ve been together for 10 years and I try not to make sex a big issue but this is hurting our relationship. I don’t want to jump for one relationship to next and I haven’t cheated again but I’m starting to get the urge seeing as though there is no pleasure for me at home. My husband is becoming extremely insecure going through my phone calling at least 10 times a day to make sure I’m at work. I don’t know what to do. I love him I do but I don’t believe that we can make it like this. Help me!!
Signed Horny and Confused!
Ok look, I don’t know what the hell is going on with Lauryn Hill, but the jig is up. Lauryn can no longer rely on her “Misducation Of Lauryn Hill” days to sustain her any further. Dear Lauryn Hill, WE ARE OVER YOU. I completely understand that Lauryn’s music is her art and she is free to express herself however she sees fit. However, I’m feeling deceived by Lauryn because the product she is now pushing is not what we bought years ago. Lauryn tricked us. We signed up for neo soul queen of hip hop. Now the bish is giving us crazy lil boy with a chip on his shoulder. Is it me or has no one seen this woman smile or crack a joke in over 10 years. Every time i see her in interviews, she is always so serious and has a cloud of darkness over her. Seriously, i know we joke around, but I think Lauryn is mentally ill.
Anyway check out this tired ass song called Consumerism. I’m sure you wont be able to get through a minute of it. Continue reading
It goes without saying that I am a die hard Scandal fan. However, as the show grows in popularity, the amount of criticism it receives grows as well. Scandal has come under attack by many in the African American community for the nature of the relationship between Olivia (Kerry Washington) & Fitz (Tony Goldwyn). Many black people have taken exception with the “black woman” being the “white man’s” mistress, sidepiece, and accomplice in adultery. Ughhh I think that these folks are over analyzing things, but for some people, their relationship is a nuisance. I personally think the depth of their love overshadows race. Quite frankly, I don’t think the story would be as compelling if the two characters were of the same racial background.
Art is all subjective. What one person finds good, others may find subpar. I didn’t watch the Emmey’s nor do I watch any of the shows that were in the category with Scandal. However, I have caught wind of the chatter surrounding some feeling like Scandal is a good show, but there are others out there of greater quality. Again, all of this is subjective. There truly is no yardstick to measure art. Hell I think all of those Picaso paintings are ugly as hell and stupid, yet they are worth millions. I just don’t get it it. Soraya Nadia McDonald, a writer for the Huffington Post feels some kind of way about Scandal. She passionately states her claim on how Scandal is NOT quality television, but popular television supported by Twitter. Do you agree? Catch these T’ Continue reading
Complete Devastation To The Nation
Chile, who would have ever thought that a soda can would be an occupational hazard. I’m sure Azealia Banks didn’t. Quiet as its kept, the fan was probably trying to knock some sense into her for dressing the way she does. No tea no shade, I so do not know what this fashion tragedy sings. Whatever the hell she was up there singing, one fan in Australia was not featuring. As Azealia tootsie rolled across the stage, someone lunged a can at her and hit her in the head. Embarrassed, Banks threw down her microphone and stormed off the stage. Catch these T’s Continue reading
Let me tell y’all something, Usher & Tameka’s asses get on my last damn nerve with all this damn court drama. Like seriously, the next time they go to court, it needs to be for a marriage license. Those two need to get married, lock themselves in a mansion somewhere, and drive each other crazy until they are old and gray. I’m sorry, there should be a limit on how many times you can go to court surrounding the same issues before your ass is thrown in jail. The sad part is, I really feel like it is Usher that is keeping the sh!t going. ughh he is such a drama queen. A rich little boy with too much time and money on his hands. Damn, just play fair and toying around with the lady and her children. Whew…. Now that I am done ranting, on to the story.
Undeniably, Usher & Tameka’s sons have got to be the most loved little boys on the planet. They’ve got two parents that are fighting tooth and nail for them. Or do they have two parents that are using them as pawns in a human game of chess? Either way, Tameka has recently filed court papers on Usher citing that he does whatever the hell he wants to do with the kids without any regard to her opinion and they are supposed to be co-parenting the boys. She now wants Usher punished. See what else she alleges Usher has done Continue reading
