Some Very Polite Counter-Protesters Convinced UK Anti-Choice Group Abort67 To Pack Up Their Protest And Go Away

The UK anti-choice abortion protesting group Abort67 — the group that got an epic takedown from a pregnant passerby last week — was counter-protested near an abortion clinic in London. The very polite counter-protesters put a sign up in front of Abort67’s giant picture of an aborted fetus that said, “My body, my choice.” One local resident, John Kennedy, told Abort67, “I’m not even telling you you’re necessarily wrong, I’m just saying go away, and go protest in Parliament,” and followed up saying, “Leave us alone in this community. Don’t bring your aggro here.” Keep reading »

Watch A Pregnant Woman Tear Some Anti-Choice Protesters A New One

Um, Be My Best Friend?

A UK anti-choice group, Abort67, had set up outside of a London abortion clinic with a giant picture of an aborted fetus and had been filming their protest — and possibly the women going into the clinic — when this woman happened upon the Abort67 protesters being asked to turn their cameras off and move down the street by a clinic employee.

The woman works for Kids Company, an organization located across the street from the clinic that works with inner-city children, some of whom have been abused and molested. She pointed out that this was the wrong place to be protesting if Abort 67 cared so much about the lives of children – the violent image of an aborted fetus is absolutely not what traumatized children need to be exposed to. “They’re meant to see this? And this is the people we work with, girls that have been abused, molested, and you’ve got this on?” She asked the protesters, pointing at the picture. Keep reading »

shakespeare in love broadway

As much as the trend of turning popular movies into Broadway musicals (“Once,” “Hairspray,” “Billy Elliot,” “Matilda,” “Ghost,” maybe “The Princess Bride”) makes me worry about that we’ll never see another original idea ever again, I can’t say I don’t enjoy the adaptations. The latest movie to see its moment under the stage lights is … drumroll please … “Shakespeare in Love.” Get excited, world! Keep reading »

“Performance Art” Is Now A Gay College Student Having Anal Sex In An Art Gallery

anal sex Clayton Pettet

There’s a stigma around virginity, so gay college student Clayton Pettet, 19, is doing his part by having anal sex inside an art gallery in front of a live audience on January 25th. Pettet’s performance art will be called “Art School Stole My Virginity” and will include first-time butt sex with a friend and then a chat with the gallery patrons about what they thought of the performance. All this will then be graded, presumably, for London’s Central Saint Martin’s art school. Methinks he is totally overestimating his ability to have anal sex to completion on the first try; his “once-in-a-lifetime performance” might need a couple tries.

Well, at least they are having safe sex. Carry on. [Queerty] [Image of monkeys via Shutterstock]
