Boris JohnsonBoris Johnson, the man recently chosen to serve as Britain’s new Prime Minister, is known for sticking his foot in his mouth and making sexist, racist and homophobic comments, according to Business Insider.

Among the writings...

It’s hard being a cisgender heterosexual conservative in Trump’s America. Just ask Kathy Zhu. The 20-year-old pageant queen was stripped of her Miss Michigan title after a string of racist tweets she wrote in 2017 and 2018 resurfaced. Now, she says “coming out as conservative is harder than coming out as gay.” After it was learned that Zhu had posted offensive musings on her social media accounts, including attacking women who wear hijabs and saying Black people have lower IQs, officials from...
