Raised in a conservative small town in Northern California, the youngest of six, Megan Rapinoe was four years old when she kicked her first soccer ball. Her parents encouraged her love for the game, but taught her that winning was much less important than how she lived her life. From childhood on, Rapinoe always did what she could to stand up for what was right—even if it meant going up against people who disagreed.
In One Life, Rapinoe reflects on the choices she has made, her victories and her failures, and embarks on a thoughtful and candid discussion of her personal journey into social justice. After the 2011 World Cup, discouraged by how few athletes were willing to discuss their sexuality, Rapinoe decided to come out publicly as gay and use her platform to advocate for marriage equality. Recognizing the power she had to bring attention to critical issues, in 2016 she took a knee during the national anthem in solidarity with former NFL player Colin Kaepernick to protest racial injustice and police brutality—the first high-profile white athlete to do so. The backlash was immediate, but it couldn’t compare to the overwhelming support. Rapinoe became a force of change, both on and off the field.

Today in *pooh squints at paper* news, with a whopping 35m world wide total*, Vin Diesel's BLOODSHOT is...like officially getting a sequel?
*To be fair, it literally released a week before every theater shut down because of Coronavirus. "I think [Bloodshot] was very successful in that respect [???], a lot of people saw it and it did very well in the post-release rollout but you can't use the same evaluation process, pre-COVID, to this," said Dan Mintz, filmmaker.
Vin Diesel will return in the titular role as the 2 - No wait, I'm sorry, as Bloodshot aka Ray Garrison.
The studio quickly pivoted to VOD, where tens more people saw it from the comfort of their homes.
I saw it. TBF, I don't remember most of it. Directed by Dave Wilson with a script by Eric Heisserer and Jeff Wadlow, Bloodshot stars Vin Diesel, Guy Pearce and Toby Kebbell ([Spoiler (click to open)]who will probably not be in this movie so OP no longer cares.)

In an interview with Romper, Kristen Bell explains why her and her husband Dax Shepard, have not shown their children’s faces on social media.
Kristen and Dax are parents to daughters Lincoln, 7, and Delta, 5.
"My feeling is that I chose a career in the public eye. I chose to be quoted, I chose to have my picture taken," Kristen said. "I don't know them yet. I don't know if they will want that. So I really don't have the right to choose for them."
Both Kristen and Dax have been very open about being parents and the ups/downs of their marriage.

Just a few months since the release of The Blight (Talbot Grimes) and new survivor Felix Richter comes a new killer and survivor. And no, it isn’t Wendigo like many guessed.
“Good things come in pairs. A Binding of Kin is the next Chapter in Dead by Daylight,” writes game developers, Behaviour. “The Twins - Charlotte and Victor Deshayes - formed an emotional bond like none other. After a life of hardship and suffering, The Entity has twisted their love for one another into something truly terrifying. The new Survivor is Élodie Rakoto. Cunning, smart, and resolute, Élodie spent her life trying to uncover the mystery of her parents’ disappearance. Grief-stricken and guilt-ridden, she turned to the occult to find the answers she was looking for.”
The new 2-for-1 killer “The Twins” and new survivor will be “coming soon.” My guess is mid to late December. Please test this shit thoroughly this time with few bugs / frame rate issues like during the Halloween Blight event on PS4 tho @Behaviour!

Amy Adams and Glenn Close elevate well but #HillbillyElegy is just the wrong movie at the wrong time and feels like the cinematic equivalent of "all lives matter" & there are "very fine people on both sides."

Hughes, the only Black series regular, has left “ABC's American Housewife,” citing a “toxic environment”.
"I was no longer able to work in the toxic environment that was created on ‘American Housewife'. I made the decision to leave to protect myself from that type of discrimination. As a black woman in entertainment, I feel the responsibility to stand up for what I deserve, what we all deserve — to be treated equally. I wish the show well, and I am excited for a new chapter and to be able to pursue the opportunities ahead.”
Following an investigation into Hughes’ complaints, creator Sarah Dunn stopped being an active producer on the show, Mark J. Greenberg stepped down as line producer, and showrunners Rick Wiener and Kenny Schwartz underwent sensitivity training.
Mortensen makes his directorial debut with 'Falling', which he also wrote. It sees him playing a gay man called John who finds himself caring for his racist and homophobic father Willis, played by Lance Henriksen, after he starts showing symptoms of dementia.
When asked about the debate around straight actors playing gay characters, he wanted to make the point that it is an actor’s job to play parts outside of their own experiences.
“There are certain characters I’m not going to play. I wouldn’t play Eric, the Chinese-Hawaiian American,” referring to his character’s husband in the film.
The star insisted that he did not make his main character gay as a “gimmick, anchor or some trigger”, and said the decision flowed naturally during the writing of the film.
Okay so this all started because a former Republican House candidate, Dean Browning, forgot to log out of his official account and into his burner account and replied to someone criticizing him with "I'm a black gay guy..." and then proceeded to talk nonsense about how Trump has been great for him. When people started making fun of him, he then said that he was actually tweeting a DM that a black gay man sent him but he forgot to mention that in the tweet.

After saying that Latinas are the “real heroines” of the 2020 election victory of Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris on Sunday on MSNBC. Eva Longoria has apologized for her comments and clarifies what she meant in an Instagram post:
Watching this back I can see that this sounds like I’m comparing Latinas to Black women, which I would never do. I was comparing Latinas to their male counterparts, but my wording was not clear and I deeply regret that...
Black women have long been the backbone of the Democratic Party, something we have seen played out in this election as well as previous ones. Black women deserve a standing ovation for the work they have done year after year!! Over 90% of black women showed up for Biden. Finally, Black women shouldn’t have to do it alone. Latinas, many who identify as Afro Latina, and other women of color are standing with them so we can grow our collective voice and power. Together we are unstoppable! Again, so sorry for the confusion and lack of context on my part!
