ADVOCATE: Anti-trans sports bills are heading to the governors of Arkansas and Tennessee for signature. When Kristi Noem, South Dakota's far-right governor, refused to sign a similar bill without changes first, it really pissed off the culture warriors who think trans girls competing against cis girls is A HUGE DEAL.

OMG.BLOG! (WORK UNFRIENDLY): Cazwell's “Damn, I Look Good” sounds good (and is the antithesis to Gillette's '90s assault “Mr. Personality”), and the animated video is amazing. Bragadocious-bro energy.

TWITTER: Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) goes full A Face in the Crowd with his hollow defense of thoughts and prayers — derided by Democrats as self-righteous inaction — as we deal with the latest mass shooting by a white dude who probably had a lot of thoughts and prayers of his own:

ELLE: Kylie Jenner's no billionaire — but she's damn close. That's why her recent plea to donate to a distant friend's GoFundMe when he was seriously injured outraged many people on social media. He needs $120,000, and the girl so rich she will literally never be able to spend all her money (she reportedly makes several times that amount every day) only kicked in $5,000. Her response:
Anyone that knows me knows that I do things from the heart and I try to be helpful whenever I can be. Let’s all stay positive and keep Sam, his family, and anyone you know who is going through a difficult time in our prayers. I hope you have a beautiful day and let’s encourage each other to help.
