Horndog From Canada Turned Away At U.S. Border — Due To Scruff Profile Comments (0)

It might sound ridiculous or even funny at first, but one Canadian man's story of being IMG_9995denied entry to the U.S. by border agents is actually downright scary.

As reported by Daily Xtra, a traveler from Vancouver was given extra scrutiny en route to New Orleans to visit a boyfriend.

This consisted of agents taking his phone and computer and demanding his passwords.

Around two hours later, after he had missed his flight, an agent returned and grilled him on his Scruff and BBRT (BarebackRealTime) profiles, asking what it meant that his profile said he was “looking for loads.”

“I could tell just by his nature that he had no intentions of letting me through. They were just going to keep asking me questions looking for something,” he says. “So I asked for the interrogation to stop. I asked if I go back to Canada am I barred for life? He said no, so I accepted that offer.”

A month later, he booked the same trip, this time clearing his phone of as much personal info as possible. Instead of helping, that hurt the situation:

When he went through secondary inspection at Vancouver airport, US Customs officers didn’t even need to ask for his passwords — they were saved in their own system. But André had wiped his phone of sex apps, browser history and messages, thinking that would dispel any suggestion he was looking for sex work. Instead, the border officers took that as suspicious.

“They went through my computer. They were looking through Word documents,” André says. “I had nude photos of myself on my phone, and they were questioning who this person was. It was really humiliating and embarrassing.”

“They said, ‘Next time you come through, don’t have a cleared phone,’ and that was it. I wasn’t let through. He said I’m a suspected escort. You can’t really argue with them because you’re trapped,” he says.

Are you telling me that agents with people's stored hookup-app and phone passwords aren't abusing them? Isn't it also very likely that gay people could be at a higher risk for being rejected at the whim of homophobic agents?

He lost two flights and around $1,200 due to the capricious actions of the U.S. agents.

And if you're thinking this can only happen to immigrants, think again — even Americans, who must be allowed in, can have their persona devices seized.

Give us your poor, your sick, your huddled masses — but no horny gays, please.

Harry Potter's Mama Puts Piers Morgan In His Place, Plus: Shut Up, John Waters Comments (0)

Piers Morgan was told to fuck off on Real Time with Bill Maher after defending Donald Trump by claiming the old Hillary as lesser of two evils argument was defensible and by stating “there is no Muslim ban.”

After being told he was sucking up to Trump just because he won The Celebrity Apprentice and enjoys having a famous pal, Morgan called comic Jim Jeffries ridiculous and unpleasant, which did not fly with the audience and ended badly for Piers:

Deliciously, J.K. Rowling tweeted her pleasure at witnessing the smack-down:

Morgan's glass ego forced him to reply: 

Rowling responded with a one-two that will have Morgan smarting for days: 

By the way: John Waters can fuck off, too. His smarmy, condescending joke at the end of Maher's show reveals a lot about him — that he would mock people for being convinced Trump is bad and that he would suggest what if somehow Trump & Co. made things better, shows he doesn't understand that Trump is already making things worse, aggressively so, for people of color, immigrants, LGBTQ people (it's coming), women seeking abortions and even animals. To suggest liberals might be pleasantly surprised is to pretend all of those people don't count. Very bullshit joke.

Syrian Immigrants Who Voted For Trump Are Now Shocked — Shocked! — By His Executive Order Comments (0)

This idiotic family immigrated to the U.S. from Syria 20 years ago, and yet voted for Donald Trump — in Pennsylvania.

How they were not turned off by his malicious comments about immigration, Muslims (they're Christians, so maybe they don't care?) and about turning away Syrian refugees, I will never know. But rather than being turned off, they went out of their way to vote for the man, even as they were buying a home and furnishing it for their relatives who were on the cusp of immigrating to the U.S. after a 13-year (!) process.

When Trump signed his executive order, their family was mid-air. They landed, had their visas revoked and were sent right back to Damascus.

Now, the matriarch is asking — with a straight face — of Trump:

Why? Where is your human side, to send somebody to a war zone? I understand he wants to make America safe, we're all on with this. I definitely want to be in a safe place, but people need us and we need to be there for them.

Too bad, so sad. It's not like they were tricked; rather, they, like so many Republican voters, seem to operate from a place of, “As long as I get by, as long as I get away with it, fuck the rest of you.”

Well, fuck you, this time, it turns out.
