    You know copier addict, when you first started posting on these threads it only took about three of your posts to make me realize that you refused to answer very simple questions. It took you 3-months to answer if you'd date a man. You finally admitted that you would and went into great detail about your reasoning for dating a man. I think you said that "I won't hold his past against him." I have the post saved if you'd like me to show you...again.

    Hey Fabricator, do what ya gotta do. It will not affect my day. As I said before, you are an amusement, that's all. Although I do appreciate the laughs.

    ... if this is an image of the Vice President of the United States of America, Kamala Harris, she has assumed a historic first ever woman of colour position in the history of the nation. The will be many schools, bridges and monuments named after her for 100s of year into the future.
    ... the context is, February is black history month. VP Kamala Harris definitely made the US history when she became the first black woman of color to serve as Vice President.

    China OKs Labeling Homosexuality a ‘Psychological Disorder’ in Textbook


    A Chinese court has ruled that the printing of the words “homosexuality is a psychological disorder,” which appeared in a university textbook used in eastern China’s Jiangsu province, was “not an error,” Chinese state media outlet the Paper reported Thursday.


    The Suqian Intermediate People’s Court of Jiangsu Province rejected an appeal by a plaintiff referred to as Xixi (a pseudonym) on February 22 and upheld the original hearing’s judgment, which found the printing of “homosexuality is a psychological disorder” in a textbook published by Jinan University Press in 2013 “was an academic point of view and a divergence of understanding, and it was not an intellectual error in the scope of book editing.”


    Xixi, a then-20-year-old Chinese university student, sued the Chinese publisher Jinan University Press and its retail platform in 2017 after she learned that homosexuality was described as a disorder in a psychology textbook the publisher printed. A court in Jiangsu province first heard her case in July 2020.


    The textbook in question, titled Mental Health Education for College Students, was publicly selected for use in a Jinan University course in the Chinese province of Guangzhou in 2016. Its 2013 edition classified homosexuality as “a disorder in sex or the perversion of the sex object,” according to the Paper.


    The Chinese government officially dropped homosexuality from its list of psychiatric disorders in 2001. The Chinese Psychiatric Association said at the time it would consider homosexuality a part of “normal” sexual behavior “with the proviso that those who are unhappy with their sexual orientation may still be judged to be in need of psychiatric help.”


    State-controlled publishing houses publish most university textbooks in China, making it difficult for citizens to successfully challenge their content. A Chinese college student named Qiu Bai took China’s education ministry to court three times in 2015 and 2016, accusing the bureau of failing to address her complaints against allegedly “anti-LGBTQ+ terms used in academic textbooks.” Like Xixi, Qui also sued university textbook publishers for allegedly printing that homosexuality is a mental disorder.


    “Since 2001 when homosexuality was declassified as an illness in mainland China, 40 percent of the psychology and mental health teaching materials published on the mainland say homosexuality is an illness,” Qiu claimed.


    Although Qui’s suit was heard, her efforts to sue China’s Ministry of Education ultimately proved unsuccessful.


    China’s longest-running gay pride event, “ShanghaiPRIDE,” was canceled indefinitely in August 2020. The event’s organizers did not provide a clear reason for the cancellation but suggested that the ongoing coronavirus pandemic may have been a factor in the decision to call off the gathering.


    “China decriminalized homosexuality in 1997 and removed it from a list of mental disorders in 2001. But same-sex marriages are still illegal, there are unspoken rules on censorship of LGBT topics, and discrimination runs deep in many aspects of society,” the South China Morning Post noted when reporting on ShanghaiPRIDE’s cancellation.

    Statement by President Joe Biden on Emergency Use Authorization of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 Vaccine | The White House


    Statement by President Joe Biden on Emergency Use Authorization of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 Vaccine
    FEBRUARY 27, 2021 • STATEMENTS AND RELEASES
    Today, after a rigorous, open, and objective scientific review process, the Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency use authorization for a third safe and effective vaccine to help us defeat the COVID-19 pandemic — the Janssen COVID-19 (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine. This is exciting news for all Americans, and an encouraging development in our efforts to bring an end to the crisis.


    We know that the more people get vaccinated, the faster we will overcome the virus, get back to our friends and loved ones, and get our economy back on track. Thanks to the brilliance of our scientists, the resilience of our people, and the eagerness of Americans in every community to protect themselves and their loved ones by getting vaccinated, we are moving in the right direction. I look forward to speaking more about today’s news and updating the American people on our progress this coming week.


    But I want to be clear: this fight is far from over. Though we celebrate today’s news, I urge all Americans — keep washing your hands, stay socially distanced, and keep wearing masks. As I have said many times, things are still likely to get worse again as new variants spread, and the current improvement could reverse. My Administration will not make the mistake of taking this threat lightly, or just assuming the best: that’s why we need the American Rescue Plan to keep this fight going in the months ahead.


    There is light at the end of the tunnel, but we cannot let our guard down now or assume that victory is inevitable. We must continue to remain vigilant, act fast and aggressively, and look out for one another — that is how we are going to reach that light together.

    The new vaccine is a valuable weapon against Covid-19, and its rollout will be quick, officials say
    By Madeline Holcombe, CNN
    Updated 6:50 PM EST, Sat February 27, 2021

    (CNN)A third vaccine is poised to join the fight against Covid-19, with 3.9 million doses expected to be available right away, a health official said Friday.

    That amount could increase vaccinations for states by 25% and would be delivered in as little as one or two days in the first week, said Lori Tremmel Freeman, the chief executive officer of the National Association of County and City Health Officials.

    The US Food and Drug Administration on Saturday authorized Johnson & Johnson's single-dose vaccine for emergency use in adults 18 and older, meaning the vaccine may be available early next week.

    Great news. Soon no more lockdowns and no more masks.
