Elliot Page, right, attended the 2021 Met Gala looking sharp in a men's tailored suit for the actor's appearance at the 2021 Met Gala on Monday night.

The 34-year-old Juno star, formerly Ellen Page, posed for photos with fellow actors Kit Harrington and Leslie Rose.

Elliot wore a classic Balenciaga tuxedo for the annual high society bash, which was themed "In America: A Lexicon of Fashion."

The outing marked Elliot's first red carpet appearance since coming out as female-to-male trans.

The men's tailored suit featured an oversized dinner jacket with padded shoulders and extra-long sleeves. The outfit was accessorized with a crisp white shirt with a thick silver button at the collar in place of a tie, oversized black sneakers and a green rose pinned next to the lapels.

The appearance was no doubt a monumental moment for the actor, who told Time magazine that wearing women's clothing was traumatic.

"Even though (I was) an actor, just putting on a T-shirt cut for a woman would make me so unwell."

The Met Gala comes ahead of the opening of the exhibition Part 2, In America: An Anthology of Fashion in the American Wing period rooms at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 5, 2022.

Question: What do you think of Elliot's cute suit?

Remember the male-to-female trans who exposed his genitals to little girls in a Los Angeles spa in June? There's an update in the case.

A Black woman recorded her encounter with the front desk staff at Wi Spa, who responded that California "law" allows male-to-female trans to enter female-only spaces.

"I just want to be clear with you. It's okay for a man to go into the women's section, show his penis around the other women -- young little girls, under age, your spa, Wi Spa, condones that. Is that what you're saying?"

The front desk staff confirmed that males are allowed into female-only spaces because of "sexual orientation."

"What sexual orientation? I see a dick. It tells me he's a man," the irate woman responded.

The video went viral, sparking furious public backlash and violent protests outside the Wi Spa, which temporarily closed its doors on Wilshire Blvd.

On Monday, Aug. 30, police arrested a registered sex offender, Darren Agee Merager, and charged him with indecent exposure after he exposed his erect penis in front of women at the same spa.

The arrest didn't make headlines right away because the charges were "discreetly filed", following an investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department.

According to the NY Post:

"Sources with knowledge of the case but not authorized to speak publicly say four women and a minor girl came forward to allege that Darren Agee Merager was partially erect in the women’s section of Wi Spa. Besides being a suspect in this case, Merager is facing multiple felony charges of indecent exposure over a separate incident in Los Angeles."

In a statement to the NY Post, Merager claims the allegations are false and that he is a victim of transphobic harassment.

Former President Donald Trump's transgender joke about LeBron James drew outrage and criticism from LGBT+ groups.

Trump made the remark during a "Rally to Protect Our Elections" in Phoenix, Arizona on Saturday.

He mused about signing male-to-female transgender players if he coached women's basketball.

Trump joked that the Los Angeles Lakers star could "get the operation" to change his sex in order to compete in women's basketball.

"If I were a coach, I wouldn't be talking to too many women as we know women," he said. "I'd be getting some of these people that [believe] they're 'women.'"

He continued:

"Somebody said that if LeBron James ever decided to get the operation, how would he be on the court? How would he be?

"LeBron James, you can have him. Did you see the [NBA] ratings that were terrible? They went up after his team was defeated."

James was a vocal anti-Trump critic while the former president was in office.

Trump called James "racist" and "divisive" after the NBA star tweeted a response to the police killing of Ohio teenager Ma'Khia Bryant in April.

Former NCAA track & field champion CeCe Telfer was ruled ineligible for the Olympic trials due to higher than normal testosterone levels.

Testosterone is a male sex hormone produced in the testicles that stimulates male secondary sex characteristics such as facial and body hair, deep voice, and muscular upper body build.

Biological women produce tiny amounts of testosterone in their ovaries.

Under World Athletics guidelines released in 2019, athletes can't compete for the USA in international women's events if their testosterone levels are high.

Testosterone levels must be below 5 nmol/L for a span of 12 months. In biological women, the normal testosterone range is 0.06 to 1.68 nmol/L.

Telfer, a Jamaican-born male-to-female transgender, is the first openly transgender male bodied person to win an NCAA women's title.

While a student athlete at Franklin Pierce University, Telfer first competed in the men's track and field division from 2016 to 2017 before transitioning, and winning first place in the women's 400-meter hurdles event in June 2019.

Helfer, who was raised by a single mother, is one of three children. The family moved from Jamaica to Canada when Telfer was 12.

Telfer's lawyer, David McFarland, said Telfer would respect the decision.

Three male-to-female (MtF) transgenders escaped with their lives after a mob of 200 men attacked them with bottles and forced them to strip naked.

The incident occurred on Saturday, May 1, at Sunset Bar in Cotonou, Benin, a country in West Africa. The violence was captured on cell phone video and uploaded to social media.

The video was shared on Twitter by NGO and LGBT+ advocacy group Hirondelle Club Benin to spread awareness about violence against transgenders.

The video shows three MtF trans being harassed by a crowd of 200 men. The men force them to take off their clothes while they are being slapped and pelted with objects.

One of the victims told The Observers that the attack was planned.

"My man knew I was transgender and asked me to invite my transgender friends. When we arrived, he asked me to go outside.

Once we managed to get outside to help our friend, they began attacking the three of us. There were about 200 men there, and they forced us to strip naked while they laughed and filmed up. It was humiliating."

The victims were able to find shelter within Hirondelle Club Benin. But they said the "whole nation" – including "our families and bosses" – viewed the video of the attack after it went viral on social media.

"We'll never be able to find a job again," one of the victims said. "Everyone here is against us. Even young children in the street have been [pointing] fingers at us."

The video caption reads:

"We have just denounced an umpteenth aggression against people LGBTQi in Benin a few days before the celebration of May 17.We condemn these acts with the last rigor. We will come back for more details."

No arrests have been made.

Female-to-male trans (FtM) individuals report irregular periods after receiving the Covid-19 mRNA vaccine.

FtM trans whose menstrual periods stopped while on the male hormone testosterone now complain that they are menstruating again.

Biological women in the LGBT and heterosexual communities report irregular menstruation such as heavy bleeding after taking Covid-19 mRNA vaccines.

A few FtM trans took to social media to vent their frustration.

One FtM trans who hasn't had a period in 5 years started menstruating spontaneously within days of taking the Moderna injection.

A heterosexual woman wrote that her 24-year-old biological sister, who self-identifies as a male, began bleeding heavily after taking the vaccine.

"He was very unprepared, and in shock at Aunt Mary's return," she wrote in a post on Reddit.com. "Aunt Mary" is slang for menstruation.

She added: "I'm worried it may affect my cycle if I get it? I'm very regular; you could set a clock to my cycle."

Researchers have launched a study to determine whether Covid-19 mRNA vaccines cause abnormal periods such as heavy bleeding.

200 million adults and children in America have been vaccinated -- more than half of the U.S. population.

But the pace of vaccinations has begun to slow, because people who don't want the vaccine are not seeking appointments.

The White House and the CDC are concerned the U.S. might not reach herd immunity, as those who are fully vaccinated begin to fall ill from Covid-19.

In many states, unused vaccines are beginning to pile up, leaving thousands of vaccines to spoil.

While New Hampshire has given at least one shot to 59 percent of its citizens, states such as Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and Florida are at or below 30 percent vaccinated.

"There are states where they feel they have hit the wall," said Michael Fraser, the executive director of the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials. "The folks that wanted [vaccines] have found it. The folks that don't want it are not bothering to find it."

"I don't know why you guys didn't warn me about these liberal agenda networks," Stanton-King said during a livestream after taping Dr. Phil's show.

"The whole show ended up about me being a Black Trump supporter with conservative values," Stanton-King complained.

The mother of four was offended when Phil brought out a male-to-female trans to tell her how to be a better parent.

"First of all sir, you don't even have children... yet you want to tell me what I need to do in regards to my child. Dr. Phil didn't offer any solution to our problem whatsoever!"

She then launched into a profanity-laced tirade against Dr. Phil, his wife, the other guest, and Dr. Phil's staff.

r/SuperStraight

This weekend's breaking news headlines were dominated by Meghan Markle and Harry Windsor's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, the NBA All-Star Game held in Atlanta, and more violence and gunplay in Atlanta.

But one story that you may have missed is the "radical" #SuperStraight Movement on TikTok.

After years of being told they are "transphobic" for refusing to even consider sleeping with a male-to-female transgender, the straights fought back.

The movement started with a video by a TikTok user named Kyle Royce. In it he expressed his frustration with having to protect his manhood by creating a new sexuality called "super straight".

"Yo, guys, I made a new sexuality now, actually, it's called super straight. Since straight people, or straight men like myself, I get called transphobic because I wouldn't date a trans woman," he said.

Kyle added that he wouldn't date an MtF because "that's not a real woman to me, like, I want a real woman. Now, I'm super straight. I only date the opposite gender, woman, that are born woman. So you can't say I'm transphobic now because that's just my sexuality."

And just like that, a new movement was born. The #SuperStraight hashtag began trending on TikTok, Twitter and Facebook. And the movement adopted its own flag with the colors black and orange.

Liberals were triggered and some responded with violence and death threats.

TikTok user @procrasclass posted a video criticizing men who claim to be "super straight".

"You like women, but you're excluding an entire group of women," he said. "If a plumber only works on shower drains and refuses to work on sinks, we don't call him a 'super plumber'. If anything, you're 'semi-straight' or 'straight impaired'."

The movement quickly jumped from TikTok to Reddit where an r/SuperStraight subreddit was created.

One Reddit user justified the new movement this way: "Super straights are by far the most oppressed sexuality. why do they hate us for how we were born? such a cruel world."

Another Reddit user was overjoyed to stumble upon the SuperStraight subreddit. He wrote: "I didn't think women existed anymore? I thought they were called people who menstruate now or something."

And a third Reddit user wrote: "I just came out to my parents as super straight. They told me they knew all along, and no matter what, they would love and accept me."

The r/SuperStraight sub grew to over 10,000 members before it was shut down on Sunday evening due to hate speech against the LGBT+ community.

Twitter also removed #SuperStraight tweets because they violated Twitter's rules against hate speech.
