Who Here Can Eat The Most Laundry Detergent? Might be Fake News, Might Not Be, Just Can’t Tell Anymore.

A bizarre new trend dubbed the “Tide Pod Challenge” is gaining popularity among teens on social media — and doctors say it could land them in the emergency room.

The challenge involves people popping the small laundry detergent pacs and posting videos of themselves chewing and gagging on the oozing product online.

If someone swallows a small amount of the concentrated detergent in the pods, it could result in diarrhea and vomiting. And it can even creep into the lungs and burn the respiratory tract, making it incredibly difficult to breathe, Dr. Alfred Aleguas Jr., managing director of the Florida Poison Information Center told USA Today.

The D.C.-based not-for-profit National Capital Poison Center reported that biting into a pod can cause “serious injury or even death.” Rubbing the product into the eyes can make the eyes burn, too.

Hijab Barbie And Social Coercion

This week, Mattel introduced a new Barbie doll, modeled after Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad – the first member of Team USA to compete in a hijab. The toy, which hits store shelves next year, is part of a “Sheroes” line that also pays tribute to gold medal winning gymnast Gabby Douglas, writer/director Ana Duvernay and other prominent women in the arts.

“I hope that little girls of color across the heartland will be inspired [by her Barbie toy] to embrace what makes them unique,” Muhammad said.

Move Over Rachel Dolezal, White Guy Thinks He’s Filipino

“Whenever I’m around the music, around the food, I feel like I’m in my own skin,” Adam told WTSP. “I’d watch the history channel sometimes for hours you know whenever it came to that and you know nothing else intrigued me more but things about Filipino culture.”

And so instead of just enjoying the culture, Adam concluded he was truly a Filipino trapped in a white man’s body. And according to a licensed psychologist, Dr. Stacey Scheckner, there’s nothing wrong with this thinking.

Lewes bonfire ‘blacking up’ not racist, says Zulu performer

A row over whether revellers who “black up” for Saturday’s bonfire parade in Lewes are racist has taken a twist after the leader of a Zulu dance troupe booked to appear alongside them said the practice was not offensive.

Rival factions in the East Sussex town have mounted petitions for and against white members of one of its seven historic bonfire societies parading in versions of Zulu dress and painting their faces black.

But Thandanani Gumede, 32, a Zulu from Durban, South Africa, whose West Yorkshire-based song and dance troop Zulu Tradition will perform in Lewes, said while the issue was sensitive, the costumes and makeup were “not derogatory”.

Culturally Appropriate This, Social Justice Jerks

Now the leftist scolds are trying to crash our Halloween party with a long list of instructions and commands we’re expected to follow in order to PC-up our Samhain. Most of this nonsense is couched in terms of forbidding “cultural appropriation,” which essentially means demanding everyone remain in the narrow box of intersectional identity the social justice warriors have decreed for each of us. But, of course, it’s just more of the same old cultural power-grabbing that underlies everything these naggy progressive creeps do. So now, more than ever, it’s vital that we respond to their whining with the polite suggestion that they pound sand or eat rocks.

Pregnant Illegal Alien Minors Break Into The U.S. to GET Abortions?

WASHINGTON — An immigrant illegal alien teen held in federal custody in Texas on Wednesday had the abortion she had been seeking for a month, overcoming the Trump administration’s objection.

The American Civil Liberties Union said on Twitter that the 17-year-old had the procedure early Wednesday. Susan Hays, legal director for the Texas group Jane’s Due Process, confirmed to The Associated Press that the teen had the procedure.

The full U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit had cleared the way Tuesday for the procedure to take place. Wednesday’s news came exactly a month after the teen obtained a state court order permitting her to have an abortion.

Beal pulls plan to stage The Wiz after ‘white washing’ criticism

A London, Ont., high school has pulled the plug on plans to stage the musical The Wiz this year amid criticism the production would be a “white-washing” of the Wizard of Oz adaptation told from an African American perspective.

H.B. Beal Secondary School principal Michael Deeb said the decision came on Thursday, a little more than a week after the school announced The Wiz as its annual production.

The Wiz is flagrant cultural appropriation! I’m offended!
