Rapper T-Pain is accusing the hip hop community — specifically rappers — of blacklisting singer Frank Ocean because of his sexual preference.
In an open letter on his Tumblr blog in 2012, Ocean wrote that he had “unrequited feelings” for another man. But rather than accept him with open arms, the hip hop community quietly turned their backs on the 26-year-old songwriter (no pun intended). T-Pain suggested other rappers were discriminating against Ocean by not featuring him on their tracks.

A Maine judge says a school was wrong to bar a boy dressed up as a girl from using the girl’s restroom.
Nicole Maines, now 16, was in the fifth grade when school administrators ordered him to use a unisex restroom after another student objected.
The Maine Supreme Judicial Court ruled Thursday that transgender persons (not just school kids) should have access to any public accommodations of their choosing.
This means that any male who believes he is a female has the right to share the women’s restroom at a restaurant even if he is not wearing female attire.
