Audrey Gelman, Marilyn Minter, Mike Eckhaus Support Swing Left Fund-raiser

Grassroots organization Swing Left is rallying Democratic voters to head to the polls in time for the midterm elections — with a party.
The national group is holding a fund-raising dinner and soirée on Tuesday in efforts to put blue politicians in the House of Representatives and move the House majority away from the GOP.
The event will take place at Hook Studio in Brooklyn. Hosts of the party include The Wing’s Audrey Gelman, designer Mike Eckhaus of Eckhaus Latta and photographer Steven Klein, among others. Oliver Hicks, founder of production agency North Six Group, will also host. The artist Marilyn Minter will be on hand to sell and sign T-shirts bearing the message “Resist.” DJ collective The Misshapes is slated to supply the tunes during the after party, which runs from 9 to 11 p.m.
During the family-style dinner, guests will engage in a discussion helmed by activist DeRay Mckesson, who is involved in the Black Lives Matter movement and was active during the Ferguson, Mo., and Baltimore protests. He also is a cofounder of Campaign Zero, which aims to end police brutality. You might recognize him by his signature blue Patagonia down vest, spotted at many an industry party.

Amid Abuse Accusations, R. Kelly’s Ex-Wife Left Their Marriage with Help from an Online Quiz

When R. Kelly’s ex-wife Andrea Kelly was desperate for answers in 2009, after what she said was years of abuse from the rapper, she turned to the internet for help.

Andrea, 44, spoke out Wednesday for the first time about the alleged abuse she endured during her 13-year-long marriage to R. Kelly (née Robert Sylvester Kelly), 51.

Their relationship was tumultuous, with Andrea filing an emergency protective order in 2005 while claiming physical abuse, which she withdrew a week later. She filed for divorce in 2006, but ended up staying with him. Andrea said in an interview on the daytime talk show Sister Circle that her faith not only helped her persevere, but also pushed her to make a change on the day she contemplated suicide.

But, Andrea said, God moved her to her laptop, where she Googled “domestic violence” and found a support site.

“I’m thinking to myself, ‘I’m not that girl. I’m not the teeth missing, broken bone girl,’” Andrea said on the show. “But God said, ‘Keep scrolling,’ so I kept scrolling… kept scrolling. And at the end of the domestic violence awareness website, there was a questionnaire.”

The questionnaire included 17 questions to determine if your partner is abusive, and Andrea alleged, “Robert had done 15 to me.”

Domestic abuse questionnaires typically include queries about whether a person feels anxious around their partner, feels coerced into sex, is restricted from talking to other people, feels like they are in danger of harm and more. One example of such a questionnaire can be found here. People who think they may be at risk should also reach out for help using the number below.

Reps for R. Kelly have denied the multiple accusations against the rapper, including those from Andrea, telling PEOPLE in a statement that he “has close friendships with a number of women who are strong, independent, happy, well cared for and free to come and go as they please.”

“We deny the many dark descriptions put forth by instigators and liars who have their own agenda for seeking profit and fame,” a rep said. “All of the women targeted by the current media onslaught are legal adults of sound mind and body, with their own free will. Law enforcement officials in Atlanta and Chicago previously have made ‘wellness’ visits to check on the women in question and have found everything to be safe and sound.”

If you or someone you know think they are being abused, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 (SAFE) or 1-800-787-3224 (TTY) now for anonymous, confidential help, available 24/7.

Florida Man Killed Ex, Her New Boyfriend and Her Parents — Then Left His Son Alone With Their Bodies

On Thursday, a 32-year-old Florida man was convicted of the 2014 quadruple murders of his ex-girlfriend, her new boyfriend and her parents, according to news reports.

The Tampa Bay Times reports that Adam Matos fatally shot two victims and beat the other two to death with a hammer. He now faces the death penalty for the slayings in Hudson, Florida.

Matos showed no visible reaction to the guilty verdicts, which came a day after he confessed to the killings from the witness stand, the paper reports. Sentencing in the case begins Monday.

Matos committed the crime with his 4-year-old son inside the home, reports the Morning Call. Matos fatally shot ex-girlfriend Megan Brown, 27, who is the child’s mother, along with Brown’s 52-year-old father, Greg Brown, according to WTSP.

Megan’s new boyfriend, 37-year-old Nick Leonard, was beaten to death with a hammer. Matos also used a hammer to fatally beat Megan’s mother, 52-year-old Margaret Brown.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, Matos testified in court on Wednesday that paranoia played a part in the killings, which he also claimed were in self-defense.

The bodies of the four victims were found stacked on a berm alongside a nearby road.

The paper claims Matos left his child, who has autism, at Megan’s parents’ home with the corpses while he went to purchase a shovel he planned to bury them with.

Woman Killed by Husband at Football Party Shooting Left Him Because of His Drinking: Friend

Meredith Hight, the Texas woman whose estranged husband fatally shot her Sunday along with seven other people during a football watching party at her Plano residence before being fatally shot by police, left the man because of his drinking, a friend tells PEOPLE.

“She me that Spencer had an alcohol problem and she wanted him to go to rehab but she couldn’t get him to,” Meredith’s friend and hairdresser, Adriana Vaga, tells PEOPLE. “She told me that a doctor said if he would not stop drinking in a year he would die.”

In July, Meredith filed for divorce from her husband of six years, according to Collin County court records. Vaga says her friend realized she had to take care of herself first.

“I told her to do what was best for her so she could move on with her life, because I didn’t want her to feel trapped in this marriage that she didn’t have to stay in,” she says.

According to Meredith’s mother, Spencer was having trouble moving on from the separation.

 

On Sunday night, Meredith, 27, who was hosting a cookout and football watching party, was fatally shot along with seven of her friends.

Police arrived at the scene and fatally shot Spencer.

Besides Meredith, the deceased victims have been identified as Anthony Michael Cross, 33; Olivia Nicole Deffner, 24; James Richard Dunlop, 29; Darryl William Hawkins, 22; Rion Christopher Morgan, 31; Myah Sade Bass, 28; and 25-year-old Caleb Seth Edwards.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter. 

Vaga met the Hights six years ago through a friend, she says. Immediately, she and Meredith hit it off, while Spencer, she recalls, was distant.

“Spencer never talked to me very much but it was kind of weird. I tried talking to him but he kept to himself. I think he was very detached,” Vaga says.

 

Vaga says when she met Meredith, the couple, who wed in May 2011, were newly married and seemed very much in love. However, things became strained when Spencer was laid off from his job in 2013 and began drinking excessively, Meredith told Vaga.

Meredith, who worked at home for Coca Cola Industries, tried to remain positive but found it difficult because of Spencer’s negativity.

After a few years of trying to make it work, Meredith decided to separate from Spencer, who spent most of his time playing video games or building cigar box ukuleles to sell.

• PEOPLE’s special edition True Crime Stories: 35 Real Cases That Inspired the Show Law & Order is on sale now.

Newly single, Meredith was able to host parties like she had done when she first was married, Vaga says.

“She just had a really positive energy,” Vaga says. “He would hold her back from doing so many . She was being a free spirit.”

The cookout and party Meredith hosted on Sunday was the first party she had hosted since her separation, says Vaga, who was invited but had to work.

Despite everything the couple had been through, Vaga says she knows Meredith was having a hard time with the divorce.

“That had to be hard for her, whether or not she was excited , it was hard. She loved him,” Vaga says.

Spencer’s father, Chester Hight, said his family is devastated by the shooting — grieving the deaths of his son, daughter-in-law and those killed at the party.

“I’m so sorry,” Chester said, according to CBS News. He told the Dallas Morning News, the family is living a “nightmare.”

Vaga says, “I just don’t think anyone deserves to go that way. I don’t understand it and probably none of us ever will.”

Meredith and Spencer’s families could not be reached for comment.

Driver Survives Metal Pipe Crushing His Van on the Highway: ‘Another Foot to the Left and He Would Be Dead’

An Orlando driver is lucky to be alive.

On Saturday morning, a Mack truck driver hauling scrap metal was driving westbound on the State Road 528 exit to Interstate 4 when he lost control of his truck, struck the guardrail and overturned.

As the truck tipped over, a large metal pipe tumbled off the overpass and landed on top of 36-year-old Jesus Armando Escobar’s Pontiac van, crushing it.

“Another foot to the left and he would be dead,” Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Kim Montes tells PEOPLE. “He had no idea. He didn’t see it coming. It came down right in the middle of his van. It is miraculous he didn’t get more than a scratch on his face.”

Montes says Escobar was able to walk out of the van on his own. “He wasn’t trapped or anything,” she says.

Montes is thankful there wasn’t anyone in the passenger seat. “If there had been any passenger that passenger would have been dead,” she says.

Escobar was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center and has since been released.

The truck driver, 33-year-old Antonio Santiago Wharton, was uninjured and ticketed for careless driving.

Montes say the ramp has been the site of numerous accidents and fatalities.

“We have had so many crashes there,” she says. ” They take the ramp too fast, hit the guardrail and end up overturning. We have had a couple of fatalities from semis doing that.”

Luckily, not this time.

“I think everybody is just amazed,” says Montes. “In my 23 years this is in the top 3 when you look at a crash and someone survives.”

The Real Reason Why Joy Behar Left The View in 2013: ‘Somebody Wanted Me Gone’

When Joy Behar left The View in 2013, it wasn’t exactly her decision to go.

“Somebody wanted me gone,” she says in in this week’s issue of PEOPLE. “It was not 100 percent my choice.”

Up until then, Behar, 74, had been a fixture on the daytime ABC series since her start in 1997. The change came a surprise to her.

“When they told me they weren’t renewing, I said, ‘Good, I’m out of here.’ I didn’t like the way the show was going at that time,” she says.

For more on Behar’s story, pick up this this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands now

As for why, Behar says she never got a straight answer.

“The way I heard it, and I don’t know what’s true because you never know, they got rid of a Republican so they wanted to get rid of a Democrat,” she says. “That’s not the first time I’ve been fired for my politics. So I wasn’t shocked at that analysis.”

For the next two years, Behar made appearances as a guest co-host, until 2015 when she returned full time for the show’s 19th season.

With Donald Trump running for president, “I went back to do politics,” she says. “They told me, ‘It’s going to be smart, and we’re going to pay you more money.’ ”

FROM COINAGE: The Most Expensive TV Shows of All Time

Now, Behar says she’s enjoying her job more than ever.

“There’s something about The View that keeps people watching,” she says. “I think it’s the spontaneity, the unpredictability of what’s going to come out of our mouths. The relationships. Some years it works better than others.”

As for her future, Behar has no plans to slow down anytime soon.

“As long as my brain is working, I don’t see how I would retire,” she says.

Woman Left Husband Of 22 Years After He Said He Was Voting For Trump

There are only so many political arguments a marriage can withstand before it crumbles. Californian Gayle McCormick, 73, learned that firsthand.

She and her husband of 22 years separated after he “casually mentioned during a lunch with friends last year that he planned to vote for Trump,” according to Reuters.

“It totally undid me that he could vote for Trump,” McCormick told Reuters. “I felt like I had been fooling myself. It opened up areas between us I had not faced before. I realized how far I had gone in my life to accept things I would have never accepted when I was younger.” 

Apparently, McCormick’s husband didn’t end up voting for Trump after all and wrote in former House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich instead. McCormick also wrote in her vote for Democratic U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

Despite this change of heart, McCormick moved into her own place in Bellingham, Washington. The couple does still intend to vacation together, despite their difference in views. 

“It really came down to the fact I needed to not be in a position where I had to argue my point of view 24/7. I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life doing that,” McCormick said.

Deadliest Catch’s Jake Harris Fighting for Life in ICU After He Was Beaten and Allegedly ‘Left for Dead’

Deadliest Catch cast member Jake Harris has been hospitalized after he was robbed and attacked, PEOPLE confirms.

On Saturday around 8 p.m. PT, officers at Everett Police Department in Washington state received a call from a passerby that a man, whom Deadliest Catch cast member Josh Harris identified as his younger brother on Facebook, was injured on the side of the road.

According to officer Aaron Snell, Harris got into a car with two or three unidentified people at nearby Quill Ceda Creek Casino. After entering the vehicle, an altercation broke out and Harris had personal property stolen. At some point during the evening, the vehicle stopped on the side of road and Harris exited.

After officers arrived, he was provided medical aid and medical staff determined that “he was alert, conscious, answering questions and breathing,” Snell tells PEOPLE.

Snell tells PEOPLE that Harris declined to be transported to the hospital and was taken home by an officer. Upon arriving home, residents at his house took him to the hospital where he was admitted to the ICU.

“I have some terrible news today. My brother was jumped last night and some individuals decided to beat him pretty good, which is a terrible, terrible thing,” Josh said in a Facebook live video. “I have located these people and talked with him — he’s in ICU right now. Some individuals beat him to the point where it cracked his skull from his forehead all the way back to where you would be balding as an individual,” he continued. “My brother is bleeding out of his brain currently.”

“They literally beat my brother, left him for dead, threw him out of a moving vehicle onto the side of the freeway,” Josh said in the video. “Luckily the people that were behind the vehicle that he got thrown out of ended up seeing my brother and called 911.”

“Please join us in wishing Jake Harris the best with his recovery,” Deadliest Catch posted on Facebook.

Snell tells PEOPLE that police are actively working this robbery investigation with Harris and his family.

TaylorMade Men’s SLDR Mini Golf Driver, Left Hand, 14-Degree, Stiff

TaylorMade Men’s SLDR Mini Golf Driver, Left Hand, 14-Degree, Stiff


TaylorMade noticed that TOUR pros and better amateurs hit their 3-wood off the tee a lot more frequently than from the fairway, so we embraced that insight and created a new golf club that incorporates our cutting edge metalwood technology, including the distance-enhancing Speed Pocket, and sized it between a 3-wood and 460cc driver. We call it the SLDR Mini Driver, its incredibly accurate and longer off the tee than a 3-wood. At 260cc, the SLDR Mini Drivers footprint is larger, and face deeper, than a 160cc 3-wood. That gives you more stability and forgiveness on mis-hits and allows you to tee the ball higher, which makes the it easier to launch off the tee than a 3-wood. The SLDR Mini Driver has a low-forward CG like the rest of TaylorMades SLDR metalwoods, and a Speed Pocket too, which promotes more ball speed and less spin to give you more distance when you loft up. In addition, the SLDR Mini Drivers relatively short shaft (43.5 compared to 45.5 for the average driver) gives you the added clubhead control necessary to help you hit the ball straighter. Theres more. The Mini Drivers sole, smaller than a drivers, is designed to make it easy to hit this club off the deck. Thats why, even though its called a SLDR Mini Driver, youre going to want to replace your 3-wood with it. Then youll have a great option for long, accurate tee shots when placement in the fairway is vital. And you’ve got the perfect club for getting home in two on those previously unreachable par-5s. Because everything that makes the SLDR Mini Driver long and accurate off the tee makes it long and accurate off the turf too.

I Left My Heart Behind

I Left My Heart Behind


I have written this book, actually, to, once again, remind everyone what love, romance and even some action and battles people face to survive any obstacles on their way to success and of our two young people in love. There will also be Martial Arts and plenty of action and strive to win in this complicated everyday life, thus, whoever reads this story will never get bored or uninterested while reading the whole story TO THE END. The Music is also written and composed by the author as he is a Music teacher and a Martial Arts teacher. This book is based upon Love, Romance, Action and Suspense as it takes us into Love Triangles, Drugs, Drug lords and Martial Arts scenes. The suspense escalates as it unites also two of the World’s most important cultural nations of its historical time. There will also be an attempt on the life of our Martial Arts Hero. It even has some Terrorists trying to capture a whole ship cruiser for their cause and, thus, more action unfolds as our heroes try to regain the cruiser and free it from the Terrorists. The most important fact is the Love, Romance and Strife these two people have to face in order to survive it all.

The Lady Gaga Wedding Dress Sketches That Left The Star ‘Speechless’

Lady Gaga is known for her outrageous fashion choices, but when it comes to her upcoming nuptials, it’s all about what fiancé Taylor Kinney wants.

“It will be totally for Taylor,” Gaga told WWD of her wedding dress. “It’s all about my man. I haven’t really thought about anything specific yet but whatever it is, it will be totally for him.”

Kinney popped the question on Valentine’s Day with a heart-shaped diamond ring. The pair first met on the set of Gaga’s 2011 video for “You & I.”

One thing is for sure — designers are eager to design a dress for what WWD calls the “bride of the decade.” On Wednesday, the publication released 36 sketches submitted by top designers for the fashion icon. And Gaga was totally flattered:

Check out some of the sketches below, and head over to WWD for the rest.

No Child Deserves To Be Left Behind

When one examines the hypocrisy inherent in so many heated discussions about birth control, it quickly becomes apparent that conservatives will do everything possible to proclaim and protect the legal rights of a zygote while ignoring the need of a child to be nourished and protected through the arduous and often frightening journey to adulthood.

2014-08-06-conservatives1.jpg

Although Christian conservatives may delight in singing What Child Is This? at Christmastime, their willingness to protect a living, breathing child is questionable.

  • Some children are sexually abused by members of their family.
  • The international trafficking of young children who are sold into prostitution and child labor situations is appalling.
  • For some of the more fanatic NRA members and open carry enthusiasts, the prevailing sentiment seems to be that their right to keep and bear arms trumps an innocent child’s right to life.
  • Darkwulfe’s diary on Daily Kos entitled The Voyage of the St. Louis (and How it Mirrors the Border Crisis) offers a disturbing history lesson for opponents of immigration reform.
  • A recent cartoon suggests that any and all children from Central America who attempt to cross the southern border of the United States in their desperate effort to find a better life should scream “My name is Fetus” in order to assure their safety.
  • Ian Grey’s poignant article on Salon.com entitled How I Escaped My Pederast offers a heartbreaking story of how confused and vulnerable teens can be ruthlessly exploited by pimps and chickenhawks.
  • In many cases, homeless teens end up on the streets of America after coming out to their not-so-tolerant Christian parents. In other cultures, however, the deadly combination of poverty and illiteracy can undermine a child’s emotional and spiritual development.

Two new films making the festival circuit offer dark, yet refreshingly blunt insights into teens who rise above their situations in order to redefine their lives. Each offers a candid perspective on reality that would easily scare off studio executives hungry for a commercial success.

* * * * * * * * * *

Seen at the 2014 San Francisco International Film Festival, Abdellah Taïa’s largely autobiographical film, Salvation Army, takes its time gathering momentum. The story follows a 15-year-old boy named Abdellah (Said Mrini) who is first seen living with his five sisters in Casablanca.

Abdellah may look innocent and rarely say much, but he’s keenly observant. Though he has an unrequited crush on his older brother, Slimane (Ammine Ennaji), he understands that Slimane is only interested in women.

2014-08-06-salvation1.jpg

Abdellah (Said Mrini) with his older brother, Slimane
(Ammine Ennaji) in a scene from Salvation Army

On those nights when his parents have sex, Abdellah sometimes tries to prevent his father (Abdelhak Swilah) from beating up his mother (Malika El Hamaoui) following intercourse. At other times he recognizes the subtle signals from a local fruit vendor (Hamid Elouajdi Mouladi) who uses Abdellah for a quick fuck before rewarding him with a watermelon to take home to his family.

Only when Slimane encourages Abdellah to learn how to read in French (so that he can escape from a life of poverty, patriarchy, and cultural oppression) do Abdellah’s horizons begin to broaden. As the filmmaker explains:

Salvation Army is actually a story of a solitude. Fragments from this solitude. The narration is not a classical one. The images seem slow and silent, but they are not. The hero is a gay Moroccan but he is not a cliché victim. Like so many Moroccans, he deals with reality with some perversity. He is totally alone. I had to find the right distance, the right images to say the hard reality of my country, Morocco (and not only for gay people). To show the silence imposed on everyone there. To show a world that I know very well. No one could write the adaptation in my place. I did it alone. I hope that they will get the rhythm, the hidden secrets.”

2014-08-06-salvation2.jpg

Midway through the film, an older Abdellah (Karim Ait M’Hand) is seen with Jean (Frédéric Landenberg), an older European man who is a professor. Although Abdellah has managed to get a scholarship to study in Geneva, he remains poor. When he and Jean hire a man to row them around in a boat while in Morocco, the man compliments Abdellah in Arabic on having found himself a rich boyfriend.

However, in a repressed culture like Morocco’s, their relationship is pretty much a quid pro quo. Jean gets a sexy (if somewhat sullen) young boyfriend while Abdellah snags a visa that allows him to live in Switzerland. After he breaks off his relationship with Jean, Abdellah’s options become increasingly limited. Eventually, the lonely young man finds himself knocking on the door of the local Salvation Army, hungry for food, shelter, love, and a better future.

Taïa’s brooding film, which is extremely short on dialogue, benefits immensely from Agnès Godard’s cinematography while capturing the quite desperation and loneliness of a stranger in a strange land. Here’s the trailer:

* * * * * * * * * *

In the past few years LGBT film festivals have featured numerous entries depicting the challenges faced by straight parents of a gay child or gay couples who have adopted children (or conceived children with the help of a sexual surrogate). Few have shown gay men being confronted by the angry child they created with their best friend in college on that hopelessly drunken night when they were still trying to prove to themselves that they were straight.

2014-08-06-straightson1.jpg

Ignacio Montes is Armando in My Straight Son

Venezuelan filmmaker Miguel Ferrari has done a spectacular job of filling that gap with a provocative new film entitled My Straight Son (which was screened at the 2014 Frameline Film Festival). The film’s original Spanish title translates as Blue and Not So Pink, meaning that life isn’t always as pretty or happy as one might wish.

Set in Caracas, My Straight Son revolves around the closeted Diego (Guillermo García), a handsome, charismatic, and successful photographer who specializes in the fashion and arts scene. For the past few years, Diego has been in a stable relationship with Fabrizio (Sócrates Serrano), a successful OBGYN doctor who wants to marry Diego, move in together, and settle down.

2014-08-06-straightson2.jpg

Diego (Guillermo García) and Fabrizio (Sócrates Serrano) talk
about getting married and settling down in My Straight Son

Because Diego is often so wrapped up in his work that he ignores phone calls from his family, he learns (on extremely short notice) that his ex-girlfriend is putting their son on a plane to spend the summer with him while she participates in a special project in Paris. From the moment Diego picks up Armando (Ignacio Montes) at Simon Bolivar International Airport, it becomes obvious that the handsome teenager has arrived with a big chip on his shoulder.

2014-08-06-straightson3.png

Diego (Guillermo García) is visited by his son,
Armando (Ignacio Montes) in My Straight Son

Armando’s attitude (“I’m not your pal, I’m your son!”) has nothing to do with the fact that Diego is gay but everything to do with his anger that, as a father, Diego has failed to remember his birthdays and shown little interest in his son’s life. If meeting Diego’s overly dramatic friends delivers a stiff dose of culture shock, Armando’s reunion with his father is further tested when Fabrizio becomes the target of a vicious gay bashing and dies in the hospital’s intensive care unit.

Diego asks friends to look after his son while he tries to deal with Fabrizio’s homophobic parents, attempts to track down the thug who murdered his lover, copes with his loud-mouthed and perpetually inappropriate female friend, Perla Marina (Carolina Torres), and seeks help from a popular transsexual cabaret performer named Delirio del Rio (Hilda Abrahamz) while struggling to handle his grief over Fabrizio’s death.

2014-08-06-straightson4.jpg

Armando (Ignacio Montes) confronts his father, Diego
(Guillermo García) in a scene from My Straight Son

Meanwhile, Armando (who is shy with girls) has been chatting online with a young woman and trying to get up the courage to meet her in real time. Armando hasn’t helped matters by sending her a picture of one of the fashion models his father has photographed instead of a picture of himself.

Primarily known to Venezuelan audiences as an actor, Ferrari’s debut as the director of a full-length feature film is most impressive. Not only does My Straight Son look at Diego’s crises from the perspective of a man trying to cope with his biological family, his extended gay family, and his former lover’s homophobic family, it does a triumphant job of depicting the emotional strength of family values that transcend religion or ideology. As Ferrari explains:

“What I value most in an actor is the simplicity of his actions and the ability to empathize with the character, to stand in their shoes and make me believe that he is the character — unadorned and without fanfare. This film is not about a gay issue. It is a film with a great variety of characters, each with their particular sexual preferences. I wanted to talk about them from their human dimension, separating them completely from stereotypes. I wanted to talk about people who never talk; people who are discriminated against by prejudices of all kinds. This is a story about love, friendship, and about family in its broadest sense.”

2014-08-06-straightson5.jpg

Poster art for Azul Y No Tan Rosa (My Straight Son)

My Straight Son is also a story with some hairpin dramatic turns, emotional challenges, and joyous surprises that is beautifully framed by Alexandra Henao’s cinematography and enhanced by Sergio de la Puente’s music. Its cast turns in rock solid performances (including the horrific gay bashing scene that costs Fabrizio his life) which allow viewers to witness a large coterie of complex characters forced to undergo substantial emotional growth.

25 Reasons Kids Should Be Left Alone With Their Dads

Making fun of dads because they are “pretty much just giant children” is soooooooo 2011. Maybe y’all ain’t heard, but dads are getting all sorts of respect lately — not because they’re doing anything different, but because — ugh — who didn’t want to loosen up the grip a little, amirite?

Buzzfeed didn’t get the memo, so they put out a hilarious article titled “24 Reasons Kids Should Never Be Left Alone With Their Dads”. And besides some of the photos being genuinely funny with no real gender-specific blame to lather onto dad, it’s just kind of, well, you know… phoned in.

But here’s the thing: when you beat dads down over and over and make moms distrustful of them (even in jest), all it makes society say is “don’t leave your kids alone with dad — you KNOW what they do!” And then guess who has to deal with the pressure of raising kids, working, and doing their damn thing? Moms. So lay off, kk?

In light of this, I present to you 24 reasons (plus a bonus, you motherlovers) your kids should be left alone with their dads.

1. They’re Not Too Cool for Selfies


Because honestly, if a kid silly face will brighten your kid’s day, you check your pride and do it.

2. They Make the Coolest Lunch Pack-ins


Look for a Q&A with this dude here soon. Incredible work.

3. They’re Not Afraid of Creepy-Crawlies


There’s a couple of good “lizard” euphemisms I’ll pass up here.

4. They Know Their Way Around a Garden


And teaching a love for eating right!

5. The Best Family Portraits EVAR


Like, honestly.

6. They’ll Be At Every Game


Even if they’ve got two broken legs, they’ll make it there.

7. Family Movies in the Man-Cave


Because it’s just a cave if it’s not filled with family.

8. They’ll Wait Hours to Get You Next to the Trophy


You won’t care now, son, but when you’re older, it’ll be cool to have a pic of three generations next to that thing.

9. Discipline Is Sometimes in Character


Though really, everything BatDad does is in character.

10. Medical/Dental/Vision Insurance is a Number One Priority!


But you know what I mean.

11. They’re Into Crafts

And not above making up superheroes.

12. They Will Tell the Hell Out of a Story

Anything to make a bedtime story better.

13. They Beam With Pride


About everything their kids do — big and small.

14. They Make Great Pillows


And they don’t just run to Twitter to complain about it and demand wine.

15. They Aren’t Afraid


When their child arrived, they dove right in.

16. They Will Be Your Training Wheels


Until you can go it alone.

17. Seriously, the BEST Lunch Notes


We Q&A’d with this guy! Read it here!

18. They’re Not Afraid to Hold You Close


And take you everywhere.

19. They Let Their Kids Play With Their Old Toys


Because you can’t take it with you when you’re gone.

20. They Will Ride That Ride


Because it means a lot to you, son.

21. They Have Good Advice


Sometimes so good that it ends up in a book.

22. They Have a Conference About Being a Good Dad


And the support there flows. Pic of dad blogger Lorne Jaffe.

23. They Can Show Mercy


From BusyDadBlog: “She said ‘aw it’s so cute’ and proceeded to pet this fish. Of course we had to let it go.”

24. They Will Catch You


Not just when you fall, but when you jump.

25. They Honor Their Spouses With Pictures Too


Because if they didn’t respect their spouses, why would they be raising a kid with them?!

Your move, Buzzfeed.
