Ronaiah Tuiasosopo Tells Dr. Phil He’s In Love With Manti


Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the man behind the Manti Te’o hoax has revealed to Dr. Phil that his prank was rooted in his crush on Manti!  The Today Show gives a snippet of what’s to come:

“Here we have a young man that fell deeply, romantically in love,’’ McGraw told NBC’s Mike Taibbi in a segment that aired on TODAY Wednesday. “I asked him straight up, ‘Was this a romantic relationship with you?’ And he says yes. I said, ‘Are you then therefore gay?’ And he said, ‘When you put it that way, yes.’ And then he caught himself and said, ‘I am confused.’’

This is totally bizarre and kind of a bummer.

America has two Black senators for the first time which is cool and heartbreaking because we’ve never had two Black senators at the same time beforeWTF? 

There was another mass shooting in Phoenix and I just cannot even with this. Five wounded, three with life-threatening, gun shot wounds. 

” According to the latest casualty report from officials in Phoenix, the number of people injured in the incident has increased to 5, three of whom sustained life-threatening gunshot wounds. Police told Fox 10 News that the shooter entered the office “looking for individuals,” and the attack itself was preceded by “some sort of altercation.”

There aren’t enough girls represented in children’s media and it’s making boys think we’re stupid, buttfaces and it’s making girls think they’re stupid buttfaces

” . . . boys are very rarely afforded the opportunity of seeing positive portrayals of strong girls. The girls they know are always along for the (boy’s) ride. You might even add to this and say that by showing boys these female portrayals, you are building a very disturbed image of who and what women are. Since young kids are forming their first opinions around much of the media they consume, what message does that send boys? If the only representations of women they see plastered all over town are pristine princesses, untouchable crazies, or obliging cheerleaders — what are they supposed to think?”

How about men do not represent the universal, human experience? How about women are regular people who fart, think and have agency?

Oh, and here’s how to not be a dick to your Black friends because some of you need it and if you think you don’t need it then you definitely need it
