Brooklyn Rapper Action Bronson outraged many when he posted a photo on Instagram with the caption “Close up of Drunk Mexican Tranny after Bes poured a Bottle of water on its head.” When people complained, he tweeted “I don’t hate anyone. I like to laugh. He/She should be ashamed of He/She Self for giving y’all a bad wrap.ind u it was laying on the floor.” In another tweet he advised his victim “If u DONT wanna get pissed on spit on and put on Instagram DONT GET DRUNK TO THE POINT U CANT STAND OR TALK.” Classy.

A new resolution in the House of Representatives would make it illegal to discriminate against potential jurors based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. “The fact that it is still lawful for lawyers to dismiss potential jurors solely on the basis of a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity is wrong and has to change,” said Congressman Steve Rothman (D-NJ) who introduced HR 5848. “Until the 20th century, women in many states were barred from serving on juries and it was not until the 1980s that prosecutors were prohibited from systematically excluding African-Americans from juries. It is past time for America to take the next step against bigotry and inequality and pass the Juror Non-Discrimination Act.” [Steve Rothman]
Cadets at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis partook in a longstanding tradition when they shimmied up a greasy monument to snatch the elusive Plebeian’s Hat. It’s really, really, really hot. [Buzzfeed]
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health is looking for a talented artist to design a new official condom for the City of Angels. The top ten designs for the LA’s Next Sex Symbol contest will appear on a million-and-one condoms that will be distributed throughout the city by the end of the year.

Speaking of really hot guys, PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarian 2012, Zachary Koval, is smoldering, cruelty-free—and gay. “No animals were harmed in the making of this body. I love the feeling that I’m doing good—for myself, for animals, and for the planet—with every meal. I feel alive and healthy and rarely get sick,” says Koval (below). [Bilerico Project]

That’s not actually y’know BASHING a transperson. Just making offensive remarks about someone when they’re vulnerable. Most of us have done this to some drunk person on the sidewalk, expecially if we weren’t too sober ourselves. Of course, I doubt we did it because we thought the drunk was “giving others of their ethnic/gender/orientation group a bad name”. He should be educated, hopefully by the court of public opinion, about how not to be a complete fuckwad, but I don’t think it qualifies as “BASHING”.
@hamoboy: Not bashing… but calling her “it.” Considering his lyrics, I’m not surprised that he hasn’t the smallest amount of class outside beyond the shit he calls music.
“If u DONT wanna get pissed on spit on and put on Instagram DONT GET DRUNK TO THE POINT U CANT STAND OR TALK.”
Did I miss the part when this mediocre rapper was given the authority to punish people for being drunk when he can’t even perform well even in a seemingly sober state? A note to Action Bronson: gaining a little relevance for being a dick only gets you relevance and nothing more–especially not recognition for your “talent.” Get better education you unfortunate thing. You’re giving rappers a bad name–and THAT is saying a lot. Trust.
Hold up. I’m actually bothered by my comment.
I know that my comment toward rappers and Bronson’s music were unfairly harsh. It was unfair for me to say those things just because of what he did–which I still think is excessively classless and infuriating. I have a lot of respect for a number of rappers out there.
I’m very sorry to rappers who may have read and been offended by my blindly raging, insensitive and completely unjustifiable comment about the genre and the culture. As for Bronson’s music, it’s not my cup of tea but I am wrong for dragging in his music and performance into this just because of what he did. For that, I’m really sorry.
@Belize: Lol… Don’t be sorry to Bronson. I doubt he’d appreciate or understand your point… Anyway, you’re one of the better commenters I see on the site.
!what the F**K!!!!
@Belize: Now I love rap and I have never heard of this bitch bronson-so I can only hope that some of us can think of a way to humiliate his ugly ass . Belize -can I suggest that you check out HOUSE OF LA DOSHA,CAKES DA KILLA,BIG MOMMA and ZEBRA KATZ.I have waited many years for gay hip hop that was not an embarrassment! And all 4 are stunning!!
!what the F**K!!!!
Some people, by way of a post ,seem to compulsively confirm their C**TINESS-YOU”RE ONE OF EM.
!what the F**K!!!!
Lol lol lol… Stick and stones child, sticks and stones…
Ok wait I’m curious… How exactly did I confirm this rash you speak of? Also, is there a cream for it?
@hamoboy: I used the term “bashing” because Bronson indicated he and his friend poured water on the victim and verbally assaulted her (among other possible actions). In a headline you have about three words to get your point across so I had to use some broad language.
!what the F**K!!!!
@Dan Avery: why explain yourself- the picture he posted shows his VICTIM on the floor and in tears what’s to explain -that after politely pouring water over her, he sat he down to take her photo,and of course ,asked her permission to do so. Hamoboy has already identified himself as someone who abuses life’s unfortunates ,when he gets a drunken opportunity-and sees nothing wrong with it! Which shows him to be an insecure worm of a person.And his attempt at humour -WEAK.
!what the F**K!!!!
That should be -sat her down.
Dan Avery, you can post here about “trans” issues all you want, but you aren’t going to fool people into believing that gays share some defining link with crossdressers and transsexuals.
The fact that a “trans” person goes to a party, gets drunk and then gets doused with beer is not a news story. And it is certainly not a gay news story. This “trans” person identifies as a straight woman. Respect her identity and stop equating her with gay men.
LGBT is a lie.
@Dan Avery: Fair enough I suppose. Also, I now understand “gay-bashing” means more than just physical assault these days. Is this a good thing? Expanding the definition dilutes the horror and impact of actual physical assault, but then I’ve never been “bashed” physically or otherwise for who I am so I don’t have much to say.
@WTF: Oh now suddenly being a bitchy drunk means I’m a “worm of a person”? Get a clue hunty, and save your energy for people that deserve it, instead of people that just aren’t as sympathetic to a “bashing victim” as you’d like. I myself would never photograph someone in such a state, but there are sites all around the internet (like thestranger.com) that have a “drunk of the week” feature. The fact is that when you’re tragically drunk, you open yourself up to mockery. Granted, being mocked for being trans is wrong, but there’s nothing wrong with mocking people because they’re drunk (but ascertaining their safety is a wise decision after).
