China bans ‘sissy men’ from TV in new crackdown

BEIJING (AP) — China’s government banned effeminate men on TV and told broadcasters Thursday to promote “revolutionary culture,” broadening a campaign to tighten control over business and society and enforce official morality.

President Xi Jinping has called for a “national rejuvenation,” with tighter Communist Party control of business, education, culture and religion. Companies and the public are under increasing pressure to align with its vision for a more powerful China and healthier society.

The party has reduced children’s access to online games and is trying to discourage what it sees as unhealthy attention to celebrities.

Broadcasters must “resolutely put an end to sissy men and other abnormal esthetics,” the TV regulator said, using an insulting slang term for effeminate men — “niang pao,” or literally, “girlie guns.”

That reflects official concern that Chinese pop stars, influenced by the sleek, girlish look of some South Korean and Japanese singers and actors, are failing to encourage China’s young men to be masculine enough.

ACLU changes Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s abortion quote, replaces ‘woman’ with ‘person’

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is raising eyebrows for altering a quote from the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in order to be more inclusive. 

Saturday marked one year since Ginsburg died at age 87 following a long battle with pancreatic cancer. The ACLU took to Twitter and commemorated the day by invoking her support for abortion, alluding to the Texas abortion law that has sparked a political firestorm. 

“With Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, we lost a champion for abortion and gender equality. And on the anniversary of her death, the fight to protect abortion access is more urgent than ever,” ACLU tweeted. 

The tweet included a quote, which read, “The decision whether or not to bear a child is central to a [person’s] life, to [their] well-being and dignity… When the government controls that decision for [them], [they are] being treated as less than a full adult human responsible for [their] own choices.”

However, Ginsburg actually said, “The decision whether or not to bear a child is central to a woman’s life, to her well-being and dignity. It is a decision she must make for herself. When the government controls that decision for her, she is being treated as less than a full adult human responsible for her own choices.”

Despite being days old, the tweet didn’t catch fire until Wednesday. 

“This has to be a joke. They redacted an RBG quote to remove from it ‘offensive’ references to women,” Babylon Bee writer Frank Fleming reacted.

“ACLU altering RBG’s quote to remove references to women. That’s a fun precedent!” Washington Free Beacon reporter Chuck Rock exclaimed.

Walmart worker resigns over store loudspeakers: ‘F–k this job’

Watch Video Here: CLICK HERE

NEW YORK – A Walmart worker quit in a profanity-laced tirade over the Louisiana store’s loudspeakers.

Beth McGrath’s posted the video of her resignation on Facebook.

“Attention Walmart shoppers and associates, my name is Beth from electronics,” Beth McGrath said over the store’s PA system.  “I’ve been working at Walmart for almost five years and I can say that everyone here is overworked and underpaid.”

In a Facebook video she posted of the stunt, McGrath said, “The attendance policy is bulls–t. We’re treated from management and customers poorly every day.  Whenever we have a problem with it, we’re told that we’re replaceable.”

“I’m tired of the constant gaslighting,” McGrath went on to say. “This company treats their elderly associates like s–t. To Jarred, our store manager, you’re a pervert. Greta and Kathy, shame on y’all for treating our associates the way you do. I hope you don’t speak to your families the way you speak to us.”

She ended the 1:11 video with “F–k management and f–k this job. I quit.”

She posted the video on Facebook with the comment, “On to better things.”

Thousands of people have responded to her post.  McGrath posted a follow-up video thanking everyone who had commented, liked, and shared the post.


“I never intended for the video to blow up the way it did,” she said in a new post. “It’s been an emotional roller coaster for me and I’m just at a loss for words.”

“I didn’t record the video for clout.  I recorded the video for my fellow coworkers, to let them know that I do love them and I do want what’s best for them. I wanted to be their voice, I wanted to be my voice.”
