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.

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.

Former WWE wrestler Tyler Reks, who was born Gabe Tufts, came out as a male-to-female trans this week, saying, "This is me. Unashamed, unabashedly me."

Tufts, who now goes by the name Gabbi Tufts, shared a photo on Instagram, along with the caption: "The ball dropped early today as this is now worldwide news. This is me. Unashamed, unabashedly me. This is the side of me that has hidden in the shadows, afraid and fearful of what the world would think; afraid of what my family, friends, and followers would say or do."

The reaction was mostly positive on Instagram. But some wrestling fans expressed shock at the once muscular wrestling star's new look.

"What the f*ck," wrote one stunned fan.

Another follower wrote: "You gained a new fan today. Be YOU. You are loved. We are here to lift you up. I’m so happy you are embracing your true self. I hope you continue to find peace now that this weight and darkness is lifted."

Tufts wrestled professionally from the late 2000s to the early 2010s. His signature move was known as the "Burning Hammer."

Music producer Money Jezus is disappointed at the negative comments to his music video featuring a Black male-to-female trans.

In the video, a young man takes his trans lover (Lana Patel) to meet his family members at a BBQ where they unexpectedly welcome Patel with open arms.

Money, aka Desmond South, has worked with the music industry's top hip-hop artists including Chris Brown, 2 Chainz, Jeremih, Nick Jonas, Kodak Black, Verse Simmonds and more.

As record labels work toward a goal of featuring more trans models in place of women in music videos in 2021, Desmond’s inclusive music video is not resonating with some hip-hop fans.

Desmond addressed the negative comments:

"Not surprised at all to see all the hateful ass comments," he wrote on Youtube. "I know y'all want me to remove this video but it ain't happening. This is exactly WHY this story needs to be shown."

A supporter wrote: "This was lovely. Don't let some of the ignorance in the comment section make you forget that your creation will mean a lot to many people who watch it. Keep on creating because there are many who will keep appreciating."

A suspect arrested in the murder of aspiring rapper MO3 (right), allegedly shot his transgender friend in August.

Kewon Dontrell White, 22, was arrested Wednesday after a confidential informant identified White as the gunman who killed MO3, real name Melvin Noble, on a Dallas freeway on Nov. 11.

White was taken into custody at his home in an Oak Cliff neighborhood in Dallas.

Witnesses say White got out of his car and chased Noble after the rapper's car was disabled on the freeway.

White shot Noble multiple times with an AK-47 pistol, then got back into his car and drove away.

Noble was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

White was also charged with felony weapon possession after police found a 9 mm handgun in his possession during an arrest in November.

A former female-to-male transgender who "detransitioned" back to a woman won a groundbreaking lawsuit against a transgender clinic that failed to carry out a proper mental assessment before prescribing puberty blockers for her as a teen.

Keira Bell, 23, brought legal action against Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust, the only clinic in the UK that provides gender identity development services for transgender children.

Judges presiding over Keira's case said doctors at the Trust must now get a court order before prescribing puberty blockers for children under age 16.

The judges said children are unable to mentally understand the complex consequences of puberty blockers and cross-sex drugs.

"Children under 16 who wish to undergo under reassignment can only consent to having puberty blockers if they are able to understand the nature of the treatment," the high Court ruled in its landmark decision.

Keira, who was prescribed puberty blockers at age 16, was injected with testosterone at 17 and had her breasts removed at age 20. She is now living as a woman.

She said she felt like a "guinea pig" and she claimed the doctors at the Trust failed to perform a proper psychiatric assessment on her before she transitioned.

Trans children's charity group Mermaids called the ruling a "devastating blow" for trans children waiting for sex change treatment.

Domestic violence against men is on the rise, according to a National Family Violence Survey. But women's groups dispute the study's findings. They say the data is flawed because some of the "women" in the study were not born biological females.

They point to recent cases where journalists overuse the term "woman" to describe male-bodied individuals who have not transitioned.

The November 24 headline at the New York Post read, "Florida woman charged in machete attack wanted to be with man's wife."

The November 27 headline at NBC2.com read: "Woman stabs Venice man with a machete in attempt to steal his wife."

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune's headline read, "Machete-wielding Maine woman charged with attempted murder in Sarasota County."

According to The Herald:

"A Sheriff's Office arrest report states that a couple were in bed when someone broke into their home and began hitting them with an object. The husband identified his attacker as Robert Gibson, who he told police transitioned from male to female and identifies as Alana."

How many more Alanas are included in the statistics of women killing men at historically unprecedented rates?
