taiwan legalizes gay marriage

Some much needed good news.

On Wednesday, Taiwan's Constitutional Court ruled that the East Asian country's ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional. Obviously, this is a HUGE milestone for LGBT rights, not just in Taiwan, but around the globe as the nation will be the first Asian country to legalize same-sex marriage.

What an inspiration.

Now, the 22 deaths and countless injuries caused by the bombing at Ariana Grande's concert may've altered your faith in humanity, but just wait until you hear about the selfless homeless men who rushed to help victims following the attack.

Trump's America Makes Us Want To Barf

no title

We will never understand people like this.

In yet another example of how racism still plagues our country, a video of a white woman hurling racial slurs at a Latina shopper at Walmart has now gone viral.

In the clip, the rude woman was triggered after Eva Hicks politely asked her to move her cart so she could get to the medicine she was shopping for.

As she was yelling at Hicks to "go back to where you came from" and to "leave America," a black shopper intervened to tell the hysterical woman to "stop being ignorant" — to which the white woman responded:

"A n***** is calling me ignorant?"

Ugh. So fucking disgusting.

Hicks posted a video of the gross confrontation on her Facebook with the caption:

"I never in my life thought this would happen to me. Yes me. Just on a simple trip to the grocery store after a hard day of work. I love this country and I will stay in this country. Friends please share."

Entitled Trump Supporter Holds Up Flight Trying To Become The Next United Airlines Victim — But His Plan Totally Backfires!

Filed under: Sad SadFacebookTravelViral: News

There can only be one Dr. David Dao.

Yet one passenger wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat (pictured above) tried to become United Airlines' next victim by causing a disruption on an international flight!

On Sunday, the unidentified passenger boarded flight 87 at Shanghai Pudong International Airport when he refused to comply with the crew's instructions.

He then "became increasingly disruptive" when asked to exit the Newark, New Jersey-bound flight.

According to a United spokesperson, "local law enforcement was called to assist" the situation before the customer "eventually left the aircraft on his own accord."

Travelers had to get off the plane because of the incident, which passenger Clark Gredoña said was due to the "MAGA" supporter thinking he was "entitled to all three seats next to him" because he couldn't get an upgrade!

The fellow passenger explained a Facebook post:

Restaurant Apologizes For Adding 'Pill Cosby' Cocktail To The Menu — And Their Defense Is So Lame!

no title

As you can tell by their name, the Washington D.C. bar and restaurant Diet Starts Monday has a cheeky sense of humor about their high calorie fare.

Their logo, which you can buy on shirts, hoodies, and sneakers at the pop-up, even has a skeleton serving a giant burger.

But they should have stopped at joking about how their sandwiches made with bacon-wrapped donuts instead of bread would kill you — because they went too far when it came to their celebrity-inspired cocktails.

In addition to drinks named for D.C. celebs like Dave Chappelle and Taraji P. Henson (as well as disgraced mayor Marion Barry), they also introduced one named after Bill Cosby. Yeah.

And as if it weren't in bad taste enough to name a drink after the man accused of raping women after drugging their beverages, it was called the "Pill Cosby" and was garnished with big fake capsules (above).

Co-founder Davin Gentry told the Washingtonian that it was meant to be an awareness-raising commentary about rape culture, saying:

Suicide Is Fine But No Freeing The Nipple?? Facebook's Leaked Guidelines Reveal Strange Positions On Sex & Violence!

Filed under: Tech TalkFacebookViral: News

Facebook: where broadcasting your suicide is fair game, but don't even think about posting a nipple!

The social media giant apparently allows videos and pictures of violent deaths, animal abuse, and self-harm to be shared, according to leaked internal guidelines obtained by The Guardian.

The publication sifted through over 100 of the website's training manuals, spreadsheets, and flowcharts that show how the site polices its content — and it's pretty mind-boggling which type of content is allowed to stay up.

Disturbing posts like non-sexual child abuse or attempts to self harm are flagged as "disturbing" but are allowed to stay on the site because they "create awareness."

This policy doesn't stop people from live-streaming their suicides — an alarming epidemic seen from adolescents nationwide — because it "doesn't want to censor or punish people in distress."

Threats of violence, however, are a completely different matter. An actual threat to a public figure, like "someone shoot Trump" would be taken down — but a troll-ish threat like "snap a bitch's neck" is allowed to stay. Seems like a tricky line…

Special Chris Cornell Tribute Planned In Place Of Soundgarden Set At Rock On The Range Festival

Filed under: Music MinuteR.I.P.Sad SadFacebook

Chris Cornell

Understandably, Soundgarden will no longer be headlining this weekend's Rock On The Range music festival Friday night in Columbus, Ohio.

Instead, there will be a special tribute to the band's lead singer, the late Chris Cornell.

While no exact plans have been announced, this is an especially quick turnaround considering the 52-year-old singer was tragically found dead in his Detroit hotel room early Thursday morning.

TMZ reports all other bands will perform as scheduled, and Live will also honor Chris during their prime time set.

The band's rep said of the rocker:

"His voice and lyrics came from a deep and spiritual place and their power will be felt forever."

Meanwhile, concertgoers have been evacuated from the venue and told to return to their vehicles due to severe weather, according to the event's Facebook page:
