Signs of the Times (July 29, 2016)
The latest madness form the modern world. I wish I were making up this news.

They’re making lingerie for dudes now
When it comes to style, guys are starting to have way more fun: donning skirts, braiding their hair and even applying lipstick and highlighter to their faces.
But there is one trend even the most adventurous dudes have yet to fully embrace: lingerie.
One line is trying to change that. Menagerié — we would have gone with “Mangerié” — offers silky boxers, lace pajamas and other fancy unmentionables just for guys. But if you’re imagining flouncy pink Victoria’s Secret rip-offs, you’ve got the wrong idea.
“[We want] to bring more adornment and beauty to men’s fashion, but still remind people that it is a brand for men,” Menagerié founder Roman Sipe tells lifestyle Web site Refinery29. Hence the noir palette, clean lines and not-too-skimpy shapes.
And incredibly, the two-year-old concept seems to be catching on: Menagerié’s Chantilly lace-accented low-rise brief, which retails from $59 to $69, is currently sold out, while its black-lace elastic “biker short” ($89) is nearly so. Even a torturous-looking waist trainer ($89 to $99) is sold out in some sizes, meaning that at least a few guys have bought these fancy Spanx-for-men.
But while the response has been positive, Sipe realizes the idea of manly lingerie is a tough sell. “Most [straight guys] don’t think they need it, or couldn’t see themselves actually buying a pair of lace underwear,” he tells Refinery29.
“However, there are a few who find it intriguing and simply ask things like, ‘Well, are they comfortable?’ ” And while some ladies may find the idea of a man in lace panties disturbing, maybe seeing a guy putting in a bit of effort in the boudoir would be nice for once.

Battle of the Botox: Male Kim Kardashian lookalikes get catty in Facebook spat
Two male Kim Kardashian lookalikes are trading insults on Facebook over who deserves the most media attention.Jordan Parke and James Holt had a very public spat after both appeared in a US magazine feature.
The pair, who together have spent hundreds of thousands of pounds on cosmetic surgery, live a few miles apart in Greater Manchester, northern England.
The argument started when Holt, 22, vented his frustration on Facebook that Parke had also been featured in a magazine article about the Kardashian-wannabes.
“I’m happy for a two page spread in America like anyone would be, obv. [sic] But why are they trying to make that Jordan relevant in the corner of my story. It’s so annoying and I’ve never had one procedure to look like Kim Kardashian.”
Parke, 25, was quick to hit back at the remarks, accusing Holt of stealing his spotlight.
“When someone hates you and you unknowingly pop up and steal the limelight #ByeBoo #OftenImitatedNeverDuplicated,” he wrote.
Parke has reportedly spent more than $150,000 (£114,000) on plastic surgery, but had his huge lips reduced after his face started leaking.
He endured hours of treatment to get a handle of the inflated pout after he injected mystery chemicals from China into his lips at home.
Parke told the Manchester Evening News this wasn’t their first Facebook battle.
“It’s not the first Facebook war we’ve had. He’s always trying to drag me down. It’s so funny to me. He tried to take me down for the first interview I did with a national newspaper and he’s gone and done the exact same thing.
“He is where I was two years ago just with the lip fillers. I have done LA, New York, been on Spanish and German television as well as This Morning.
“He is mad they brought me up in his article, but I was the one doing it first so they are going to make comparisons. But I’m going for the more au natural look now anyway. He’s hating because his story isn’t getting as much attention as mine.”
School Bans Clapping Because Some People Are Too “Sensitive,” Will Allow “Silent Cheers” Instead
“When you attend an assembly, teachers will prompt the audience to conduct a silent cheer if it is needed,” the school noted in an emailed statement (below).
Australian schools have been the target of political correctness in hyperdrive for the last few years and it just keeps getting more and more ridiculous seemingly by the week. Bans now include everything from an exclusive girls school banning teachers from using the adjectives “ladies” or “women” to describe females because it isn’t inclusive enough (again, at an all girls school), to the banning of the word “black” in the song “Baa Baa Black Sheep”.
Pretty soon kids won’t be able to do anything at all at Australian schools without it offending someone somewhere. Students will be expected to go to school, sit still at their desks, quietly staring forward all day long. Blink once for “yes” and twice for “get me the hell out of here before I’m socially engineered into a robot”.
Ah, our modern Orwellian schools… working on making sure society is filled with people who have been trained not to do anything without checking first to see if authorities have approved it.

Canada To Jail Transgender Opposers
We have been warning for some time now about the coming “Hate-Crime” Legislation Laws that would soon sweep the globe and now according to a new report, we are seeing this begin to unfold. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced a bill that would criminalize anti-transgender speech, with violators receiving up to two years in prison. The new bill, introduced May 17 on the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, aims to amend the Canadian Criminal Code to expand the country’s “hate speech” prohibitions to include any public speech or communication that “promotes hatred” on the basis of “gender identity” or “gender expression.” It would also change the Canadian Human Rights Act to cover transgender people.
“As a society, we have taken many important steps toward recognizing and protecting the legal rights for the LGBTQ2 community — from enshrining equality rights in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms to the passage of the Civil Marriage Act,” Trudeau said in a speech, adding, “There remains much to be done, though. Far too many people still face harassment, discrimination, and violence for being who they are.” Trudeau deemed these sorts of actions and sentiments “unacceptable.” READ MORE
Robot Surgeons to Replace Humans
Are you ready to put your life in the hands of a robot surgeon the next time you need an operation? This is exactly what may be coming soon. Robots are replacing workers around the world from manufacturing to restaurants. So the medical field seems to be no different. In fact, a new report says these coming robot surgeons are even better than human surgeons.
When NUDE Television Becomes the Normal
Remember the dating show back in the 80’s called “The Love Connection” with host Chuck Woolery where singles attempted to connect with a compatible partner of the opposite gender? Well for one they were all FULLY clothed, and there were no sexual innuendos in the program. Apparently, Clean shows like this are long gone. Society’s driven desire for nudity and immorality has bled into the Television and Movie Industry for years now and has completely transformed the way we watch or listen today.Between TLC’s Undressed and Channel 4’s Naked Attraction, the entire genre feels like it’s reached its natural endpoint. A new report from the Guardian expresses how we have now found ourselves at a terrible new dawn, where desirability is judged by genitalia. One program called Undressed puts two strangers in a room and makes them undress each other before they sit on a bed and answer questions.
And then there is Naked Attraction, which begins tonight consisting of people that are lined up naked and judged by those interested in dating them based on what they see! Then there is VH1’s “Dating Naked” which is a reality dating game show that was launched on VH1, and debuted in July 2014. The show matches up several heterosexual contestants who are routinely switched with other contestants while nude most of the time with the genitals of both sexes along with the female breasts, and occasionally the buttocks, blurred out.
Then we have “Naked and Afraid” which has really taken off on the Discovery Channel, which is a program based on a man and a woman in the buff placed in the middle of nowhere left to survive using their primitive skills and their ability to work together. And if this doesn’t sound ridiculous than perhaps the show “Buying Naked” will top the cake? This show is reality television program that premiered on TLC, on November 20, 2013, featuring real estate agent Jackie Youngblood as she shows homes in clothing optional communities to house-hunting nudists.
Are we surprised that television has come to this? We all knew that the closer we get to the end, the more immoral society would become. Unfortunately, I predict it will become even worse. I remember when a man of God once said that the new normal would come when nudity would be embraced in the “House of God.” And befoe you dismiss this as crazy it’s already happening.
