US boy, 9, killed himself after homophobic bullying, mum says

Leia Pierce told KDVR-TV that her son, Jamel Myles, revealed to her over the summer that he was gay.

She said Jamel wanted to go to school and tell his classmates because he was "proud" to be gay.
. . . .
DPS Spokesman Will Jones told the BBC that teachers at Shoemaker "are creating a space for students to share how they are feeling and to process their emotions". As usual, the adults miss the problem.
. . . .

He had begun attending fourth grade at the Joe Shoemaker Elementary School on Monday, she said.

"My son told my oldest daughter the kids at school told him to kill himself," Ms Pierce said.

"I'm just sad he didn't come to me. I'm so upset that he thought that was his option."

She said that when he had told her he was gay, he looked "so scared", but she reassured him she still loved him.

Ms Pierce said she hopes her son's death can raise awareness of the effects of bullying.

Christmas in September

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/15/us/b ... allen.html
Five weeks ago, Brody Allen’s parents were told that their 2-year-old son’s rare form of brain cancer meant he had two months to live.

The boy’s family realized that he probably wouldn’t be able to enjoy one more Christmas. So they decided to celebrate early, putting up a tree and decorations, and their Ohio neighborhood followed suit.

“In his mind it is just Christmas,” said McKenzie Allen, 21, Brody’s sister. “He woke up one day and the Christmas tree was out. He doesn’t know it isn’t really Christmas. He is just enjoying it.”

...

Brody’s family first learned he was sick after he complained in May about being dizzy; a doctor said it was probably an ear infection. The family was sent to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center for further tests, which revealed that Brody had four embryonal tumors with multilayered rosettes.

“One on his lower spine, one intertwined with his brain stem and two behind his pons,” Ms. Allen, his sister, said.

“It is extremely rare,” she said. “It doesn’t respond to treatment very well.”

His father, Todd Allen, 45, said it was “a very aggressive brain tumor that he had from birth and we had no idea.”
Treatment failed and a fifth tumor developed.

So, Christmas it is.

Where the fuck to put this. So many. Here is a quote:
But in this case, according to the opinion of some experts and ordinary South Africans, Mr Daubermann appeared to cross a line.

"How many centimetres? Do you know?" he asked Ms Zondi, after she had described how the pastor had allegedly partially penetrated her, at the age of 14.

There were cries and shouts in the courtroom.

"How would she know that?" Judge Mandela Makaula interrupted, visibly angry.

"She could have felt it," suggested Mr Daubermann.

"And measured it at the same time? No. I will not allow that question," declared the judge, who went on to thank Ms Zondi for her testimony and to wish her good luck in the university exams she had interrupted in order to attend the trial.

It does look like a fancy sort of doorman's uniform. :D

Tanzania to hunt down homosexuals, beginning this week

DODOMA, Tanzania - An international human rights group has slammed Tanzania for its crackdown on homosexuals, which is expected to get underway this week.

On Monday (29 October 2018,) the Regional Commissioner for Dar es Salaam, Paul Makonda, announced plans to form an inter-agency task force comprising members of the Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority, the police and the media to identify and arrest gay people in the country.

The government taskforce is expected to begin hunting down and arresting people who are, or are perceived to be lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender and inter-sex this coming week.

Tanzania is a republic in East Africa in the African Great Lakes region, on the borders of Kenya, Uganda, Mozambique, Zambia, Burundi, and Rwanda. The country has a population of around 57 million.
