TWITTER: President Biden spoke very empathetically about trans kids, hinting that the U.S. could look at federal laws against interfering with medical and other support for those who are transitioning. He's 80. What's your excuse if you can't wrap your head around this?

YOUTUBE: I remember years ago when I was asked to do an interview with gay-porn actor Mark Dalton and I was hesitant to take the time. But he was at a hotel near me, so I thought I'd just go and do a video, too. Now, it is by far my most-watched YouTube upload (please subscribe!), barreling toward 1 million views. There is something about the concept of gay-for-pay that is triggering. At any rate, the interview was set up by porn impresario David Forest, who promptly died months later.
YOUTUBE: Nobody is overly impressed by Melissa McCarthy's makeup for The Little Mermaid. Her eyebrow game is pathetic, but she has done this before and better — remember when she was Divine for Entertainment Weekly?!
