The irrepressibly inventive sisters created this delightful yarn installation for an upcoming episode of CCTV America’s new show Full Frame.

Ugandan President’s Daughter Reveals She is Gay

In a startling revelation, the daughter of Ugandan President Yoweri ­Museveni admitted today during a radio talk show in Mbarara, in Western Uganda that she is homosexual, and that she is revealing this fact as a protest to the anti-gay law her father signed only a few days ago.

Diana Kamuntu, Museveni’s daughter said that though she loves her father unconditionally, she does not agree with Uganda’s anti-gay stance, and will fight against it.

“I am gay, I am homosexual. I have known this since I was a little girl. Also, I have been Christian all of my life, so I will not tolerate any law of this supposedly democratic nation, that will place hate on any person just because of what his or her sexual orientation happens to be,” said Kamuntu.

“Now that I finally revealed my sexual orientation, I put myself in front of this new law and I will let our people decide what to do with me,” Kamuntu adds, as her voice breaks down while on air.

The radio host, James Kasirivu noticeably was in shock, and could not seemingly get words out of his mouth.

The live radio broadcast was abruptly shortened and was put off air after a few hours of repeated commercials.

In the latest setback for homosexuals across Africa, the Ugandan President signed a law Monday that imposes tough penalties for homosexual acts, a move that has been condemned from around the world and that may jeopardize Uganda’s relationship with the United States and other Western nations.

As of this writing, neither the radio station nor the office of Ugandan President Yoweri ­Museveni could be reached for comment.

Bravery is just no the fucking word for this woman.
I don’t have a word strong enough.
This woman is amazing.
Just amazing.

Holy fuck! This woman is amazing

HELP

6stronghands:

I need to ask a question as a parent of a transgender teen (FtM)…how have other trans people found a good gynecologist?

My child is having terrible periods, each month worse than the one before, and they need to see a gyn. I didn’t realize what a triggering event a period was until the past few…

Dear lord

I’m sorry, I stopped reading at the part where it said “only higher primates and certain bats” because I happen to know that dogs menstruate as well, and I’m pretty sure a few other animals do.

And if you read the whole thing you’d know there was a footnote about that.
