I’d never heard of Laurence Fox until he started lecturing us about racism | Suzanne Moore

The actor has joined the ranks of posh white guys who feel they have to champion the so-called common man. Why are these people so easily offended?I had never heard of Laurence Fox until I saw him on Question Time telling a BAME person that the criticism of Meghan wasn’t racist. When Fox finished speaking, the show’s presenter, Fiona Bruce, stepped in to remind us that the home secretary, Priti Patel, had also said the criticism wasn’t racist.

Stephen King Faces Backlash for Comments on Academy Awards Diversity

(NEW YORK) — Stephen King says he cares only about “quality,” not “diversity” when deciding on awards. Some are asking why he thinks the two must be different. “I would never consider diversity in matters of art. Only quality,” King tweeted this week. “It seems to me that to do otherwise would be wrong.” The best-selling author’s comments came shortly after the announcement of this year’s nominees for the Academy Awards, widely criticized for only choosing male directors and for an almost e...

#4: What makes someone gay? Science is trying to get it straight. | Top 10 2019

Big Think's fourth most popular video of 2019 features bioethicist Alice Dreger. She presents the idea that heterosexual people have been less interesting to scientists than gay people in terms of why they exist. This is because, evolutionarily speaking, being gay doesn't lead to a higher "higher reproductive fitness" — meaning, it doesn't lead to more babies.Huge and rigorous studies have proven the fraternal birth order effect: Statistically, if a mother has lots of pregnancies of males, every...

Growing up gay and Asian, everyone told me I wasn’t “good enough.” Turns out, everyone was wrong.

From a young age, I knew I was different. During one of my classes in second grade, I was caught talking in Mandarin with one of my Chinese classmates. Instead of simply telling us to stop, something had hit a nerve with my teacher. She paused the entire class and proceeded to lecture us in front of our peers. “This is America. We only speak English!” AdBridg.cmd.push(function() { AdBridg.display("div-gpt-ad-inarticle1"); }); That was the day I learned my culture was dangerous in the white s...

Self-liberation and the watershed moment of coming out

I’m writer, communications professional, actor, son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, boyfriend, and friend. But I’m also a proud cisgender, gay, 28-year-old man living in Philadelphia—keyword, proud.

Does Hollywood fail gay actors who are out from the start?

Gay Pride wasn’t born yesterday, but at 50 this month, it’s never been more vital. That’s due, in part, to Rupert Everett, who was something of a pioneer in the movement as it entered adulthood. The 60-year-old actor came out in 1989, five years into his filmography, back when it still was considered certain career suicide to do so. I’ve always thought of Everett as a successful actor, so I was surprised to come across a 2009 The Guardian profile in which he lamented the effect coming out had h...
