Ginuwine has become the subject of debate on Twitter after he refused to kiss a trans woman on television.

In the clip above, the R&B vet is among the celebrities featured on the reality show Big Brother UK. On a recent episode, co-star India Willoughby, who identifies as a trans woman, asked Ginuwine would he date a trans woman to which he replied, no. Willoughby then tries to kiss Ginuwine and is immediately curved to the tenth power.

The clip has sparked a heated debate on Twitter over whether Ginuwine was transphobic for refusing to kiss a trans woman on live television. 

One apparent activist on Twitter called Ginuwine “transphobic,” adding that the singer “has an irrational fear of transgender women” and that “this is not rocket science.”

The Story Of Hisashi Ouchi, A Victim of Fatal Radiation Kept Alive for 83 Days Against His Will

January 9, 2018 | 7 Comments » | Topics: Story, WTF |

Hisashi Ouchi was one of the technicians working at a facility operated by JCO (formerly Japanese Nuclear Fuel Conversion Co.) in Tokai of Ibaraki Perfecture. He is one of the two fatalities of Tokaimura nuclear accident that exposed him to, perhaps, the highest amount of radiation any human had exposed so far. The ethical value of his prolonged treatment and efforts to keep him alive, that lasted for almost three months despite his wishes and the pain he had to endure, was questioned and the efforts received criticism.

The accident occurred on September 30, 1999, when Hisashi Ouchi and two of his colleagues added a seventh bucket of aqueous uranyl nitrate solution to a precipitation tank. Upon adding, the tank reached critical stage and went into a self-sustaining nuclear fission chain reaction releasing intense gamma and neutron radiation. 

During the accident, Ouchi was exposed to 17 sieverts of radiation with 8 sieverts being normally considered fatal and 50milli sieverts being the maximum limit of annual dose allowed for Japanese nuclear workers.

There comes a time in every man’s life where he decides that having sex with 1000 cars does not give him the emotional fulfilment he so desires. This is what Edward Smith, 63, realized after giving up his lothario ways and committing to his one true love; Vanilla, a Volkswagen Beetle. Sure, he had his fun; by his own estimate he’s given over 1000 cars a good rogering over the past 48 years. But Vanilla’s seductive alabaster exterior and voluptuous curves blew away all of the competition.

The Story Of Omayra Sanchez And Her Final 60 Hours Of Agony After Being Trapped Beneath A Volcanic Mudflow

November 29, 2017 | 5 Comments » | Topics: WTF |

On November 13, 1985, the Nevado del Ruiz volcano erupted. Pyroclastic flows exploding from the crater melted the mountain’s icecap, forming lahars (volcanic mudflows and debris flows) which cascaded into river valleys below. One lahar, consisting of three pulses, did most of the damage. Traveling at 6 meters (20 ft) per second, the first pulse enveloped most of the town of Armero, killing up to 20,000 people; the two later pulses weakened buildings. Another lahar killed 1,800 people in nearby Chinchiná. In total 23,000 people were killed and 13 villages in addition to Armero were destroyed.

Omayra Sánchez was a little 13 year old girl who lived in Armero when the “Nevado del Ruíz” erupted. When the lahar destroyed her house, her father and aunt died inside. She was able to survive the lahar, but when rescue teams tried to help her, they realized that her legs were trapped under her house’s roof. Once the girl was freed from the waist up, her rescuers attempted to pull her out, but found the task impossible without breaking her legs in the process. Rescue workers placed a tire around her body to avoid her to drown. Divers discovered that Sánchez’s legs were caught under a door made of bricks, with her aunt’s body under her feet.

Jennings-White is 58-years-old and has degrees from both Cambridge and Stanford Universities. She’s an accomplished research scientist and is happily married. So why the desire to be permanently disabled?

WTF: Knowingly Exposing Someone To HIV Will No Longer Be A Felony In California

October 19, 2017 | 7 Comments » | Topics: WTF |

Fuck everything about this shit….

Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Friday that lowers from a felony to a misdemeanor the crime of knowingly exposing a sexual partner to HIV without disclosing the infection.

The measure also applies to those who give blood without telling the blood bank that they are HIV-positive.

Modern medicine allows those with HIV to live longer lives and nearly eliminates the possibility of transmission, according to state Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) and Assemblyman Todd Gloria (D-San Diego), authors of the bill.

“Today California took a major step toward treating HIV as a public health issue, instead of treating people living with HIV as criminals,” Wiener said in a statement. “HIV should be treated like all other serious infectious diseases, and that’s what SB 239 does.”

The Story Of The Cuban Punk Rock Community Who Chose to Infect Themselves with HIV to Escape Persecution

September 11, 2017 | 1 Comment » | Topics: WTF |

It’s hard to imagine why anyone would voluntarily infect themselves with one of the deadliest viruses in human existence, but for “Los Frikis” – a Cuban punk community living under the regime of Fidel Castro during the 80s and 90s – injecting themselves with HIV-infected syringes was the easiest way to escape persecution and police harassment.

Los Frikis, the name than became synonymous with punks, metalheads and pretty much anyone who didn’t fit in with mainstream Cuban society, came together during the late 1980’s. Their music, dressing style and culture were influenced by that of similar communities in the United States and other European countries, something that didn’t sit well with Fidel Castro’s communist regime. Most of the bands also sang in English, which only made things worse for Frikis in general. Although the language was purely an aesthetic choice, speaking English in those days was considered a huge no-no.

Breaking social norms was a risky affair in 1980s Cuba, and the Frikis paid a high price for it. Many of them were rejected by their families, harassed, arrested and forced to do manual labor for their “crimes”. Los Frikis would meet in safehouses located in run-down areas, but other than that they didn’t have many places where they felt accepted. Tired of the constant persecution, many of them  took up a form of protest that can only be described as extreme – infecting themselves with HIV by injecting the blood of their sick friends into their veins.

Sick F**k Of The Day: Ed Gein

August 22, 2017 | 4 Comments » | Topics: WTF |

Ed Gein (pronounce ‘Geen’ with a hard G) was born on August 27, 1906 in La Crosse, Wisconsin. His father was a timid alcoholic, and his mother was fanatically religious. Gein and his older brother, Henry, grew up in a household ruled by their mother’s puritanical preachings about the sins of lust and carnal desire.

Ed ran the family’s 160-acre farm on the outskirts of Plainfield, Wisconsin after his brother died in 1944. When his mother died in 1945, Ed was a thirty-nine-year-old bachelor, still emotionally enslaved to the woman who had tyrannized his life.

The house soon degenerated into a madman’s shambles. He remained alone in the enormous farmhouse, haunted by the ghost of his overbearing mother, whose bedroom he kept locked and undisturbed, exactly as it had been when she was alive. He also sealed off the drawing room and five more upstairs rooms, living only in one downstairs room and the kitchen.
