yeast bread

A feminist blogger caused an uproar on social media for doing something cringeworthy: she claims to have baked sourdough bread using the discharge from her vaginal yeast infection.

Before you gag and throw up, you should know that Candida yeast is normally found in tiny amounts in your vagina and throat.

Usher and B. Scott

Earlier I told you that many down low rappers and singers would be outed in 2015. The outings are part of a collective effort to promote awareness of HIV in the black community.

B. Scott sues BET Network

Hopefully transgender blogger B. Scott didn't pre-order that new Mercedes Benz (or any other luxury vehicle). It looks like he will not be coming into millions of dollars from that anti-discrimination lawsuit he filed against BET Network.

Gossip tabloid TMZ reports Scott lost his lawsuit today.

BET hired Scott as a fashion reporter during the 2013 BET Awards last summer. But after Scott showed up tardy for his hosting gig, BET's Stephen Hill reportedly ordered Scott to change into attire more suitable for a masculine male host.

Necole Bitchie

Last night a friend sent this photo of blogger Necole Bitchie with the caption "She is getting bleach happy."

Because the friend didn't identify the females in the photo, I had no idea the female on the left was Necole.

The last time we explored the issue of Necole's low self-esteem was in this post dated January 2009. As you can see, Necole's bleaching has gotten progressively worse. She is lighter than the LSLH chick pictured on the right.

How sad it must be to feel like a stranger in your own skin?
