The Beautiful Story Of Ryland Whittington: A 7-Minute Guidebook For Parenting A Transgender Child

Ryland Whittington Transgender Story
"This is our amazing son."

“Wow” is all I have to say after watching this beautiful video that tells the story of Ryland Whittington, a bright, fun, loving little boy who happens to be transgender. Ryland’s story is fairly typical of many transgender kids — around age 3, he started rejecting a traditionally feminine presentation and self-identifying as a boy. The confusion soon morphed into feelings of shame and frustration. From there he could have spiraled into self-loathing, depression, and isolation, but what makes Ryland’s story different from so many trans people’s childhood experiences is that he also happened to be born with a truly amazing set of parents.

Babies!

There’s nothing more exciting than a newborn white tiger … except five newborn white tigers. The White Zoo in Kernoff, Austria was an embarrassment of riches on Monday when the felines, who were born on April 25, met the public. The zoo’s owner said they were pleased when four healthy Bengel cubs were born and then one more appeared a short while later. They’ve been not-at-all confusingly named Lulu, Lila, Lali, Lela and the only boy is named Obama. Yup, an adorable baby tiger named Obama. [YouTube; The Weather Channel]

I also thought I would share some videos of Angelou reading some of her most well-known pieces. Above is Angelou reading her famous poem “Still I Rise.” Here are a few more after the jump. Keep reading »

Every season, I dutifully sit through each needlessly long episode (two hours! why?!) of “The Bachelor” or “Bachelorette,” delighting in the ridiculousness of the various dates and awkwardness of the forced romantic interactions. But I hit a wall pretty early into last night’s episode and had to turn it off. Why? Well, I’ll let these two “Bachelorette” superlatives explain why… Keep reading »

Charlize Theron Ain't Interested In No Gluten-Free Shit
"Why send me a cupcake with no sugar in it?"

With all due respect to those who genuinely suffer from Celiac disease or significant, doctor-diagnosed gluten intolerance, it needs to be said: this gluten-free movement is getting out of control. Bless Charlize Theron for having the courage to speak out against gluten-free cupcakes as the “bullshit” that they are.
