Think You Know All The Different Bra Types? Here Are 25

You may think that bra types are confined to several genres ― pushups, bralettes, strapless and sports bras ― but there is more to the brassiere than meets the eye.

In a video published this week, YouTuber Davison Video makes boob support easier to grasp by identifying 25 different types of bras. And, to be honest, we had no idea that many types of bras existed.

From the classic convertible and demi bras to the vintage bullet and ever-functional maternity (aka nursing) bra, the video above is a visual encyclopedia of bras we never knew we needed.

Billboard Proclaiming Role Of ‘Real’ Men And Women Sows A Sexist Mystery

A billboard in North Carolina declares a very strong opinion on “real” men and women ― and it has a lot of people talking about gender roles and family households.

The billboard along a Winston-Salem highway reads in large print, with no other context: “Real men provide. Real women appreciate it.”

An anonymous group leased the billboard for at least 30 days, The Associated Press reported.

Bill Whiteheart, president of the advertising company that owns the billboard, told CNN the group that purchased the $2,000 ad space wants to stay anonymous. 

“We’re not supportive of or in opposition to the message,” Whiteheart told CNN. “We’re just the messenger.”

The billboard’s message, however, has offended some local residents. Boutique owner Molly Grace has created a Facebook event scheduled for Sunday morning to protest the billboard.

“I take it as a very deliberate jab at women who demand equality and demand to be seen as equals and those who are vocal,” Grace told local news station WXII-12. “To me, it’s also a very blatant statement about wanting to silence women and tell them to accept the way that things are.”

But not everyone thinks the sign is offensive. In fact, Grace’s Facebook event page has become a platform for debate on what the sign actually means.

Some argue that the sign devalues women who are breadwinners for their families and single women who provide for themselves. Others say the sign appears to be a derogatory statement against men who don’t provide for their families

“I would assume if you had a husband that loves you and appreciates you and showed it enough to carry your family and kids, that you would appreciate it,” resident Nathan Walin told WHNT News 19. “I don’t know why that would be offensive.

Heated discussions on the Facebook event page often touch on the lifestyle choices of single mothers, stay-at-home mothers and single working women. Grace clarified on Facebook that Sunday’s protest is about the sign’s “choice of words.”

“The sentiment that has upset SO many people…is the notion that these roles, on the billboard at least, are limited by their assigned gender,” Grace wrote on the Facebook event page.

Whiteheart, the owner of the billboard, said an announcement about the billboard would be coming. He didn’t elaborate, according to AP.

Caitlyn Jenner Says Trump’s Blow To Transgender Rights Is A ‘Disaster’

Caitlyn Jenner broke her silence on President Donald Trump’s decision to reverse federal guidance on protections for transgender students against discrimination, calling the move a “disaster.” 

Jenner, the Olympic gold medalist, tweeted a video Thursday evening in which she directly called out Trump and his team for rescinding the guidance issued by the Obama administration last year in which public schools were instructed to allow students to use the bathroom that matched their gender identity. The guidance was not legally binding. 

“From one Republican to another, this is a disaster,” she said. “And you can still fix it. You made a promise to protect the LGBTQ community. Call me.”  

She offered words of encouragement to young transgender people and touted the case of Gavin Grimm, a transgender teen whose fight to use the school bathroom that corresponds with his gender identity will be heard by the Supreme Court next month. 

“Mr. President, we’ll see you in court,” Jenner said, referencing Grimm’s case. 

She also took a dig at Attorney General Jeff Sessions, an ardent opponent of LGBTQ rights. According to a New York Times report published earlier this week, Sessions pressed Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos to sign off on rescinding the guidance for transgender students, despite her reluctance to do so. 

“Apparently, even becoming the attorney general isn’t enough to cure some people of their insecurities,” Jenner said. 

Jenner describes herself as a conservative Republican and has said she wants to help the GOP reach out to the LGBTQ community.

“I am here, since I’m on the Republican side, to help the entire Republican Party do a better job when it comes to LBGT issues,” she said last year. “I have kind of positioned myself with the Republican Party to try to help these people understand.” 

She’s also praised Trump on his outreach to women and the queer community.

“Everybody looks at the Democrats as being better with these issues,” she said last June. “But Trump seems to be very much for women. He seems very much behind the LGBT community because of what happened in North Carolina with the bathroom issue. He backed the LGBT community.” 

While he initially criticized North Carolina’s HB2, which requires people to use the bathroom designated for the gender on their birth certificate, and said Jenner was welcome to use any bathroom she wanted to in Trump Tower, Trump later walked back that criticism. His latest move, meanwhile, has been seen as a violation of the White House’s promise to “protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBTQ community.”

TV network faces outrage over plans to air re-enactment of Pulse shooting

The Univision television network has been massively criticised over plans to air a detailed re-enactment of the Pulse nightclub shooting which killed 49 and injured more than 50 more.

An upcoming episode of the show ‘Crónicas De Sábado’, plans to use actors to create a detailed re-enactment of the most deadly mass shooting in US history.

Some survivors of the atrocity are featured on the show in interviews.

But many have taken umbrage at the planned episode, titled ‘Baño De Sangre’, or ‘Blood Bath’.

A trailer had been posted by the network on its social media platforms, which has since been taken down.

But it was noticed by some, and the network was accused of “re-traumatizing” members of the LGBT community.

The owner of the Pulse club where the shooting took place, Barbara Poma, posted on the Facebook page for the show that the “lack of respect for these grieving families” was “incomprehensible”.

Many have called for a boycott of the network.

“Boycott this show, call the station and tell them we will not support them getting rich off of others’ pain and will not allow them to make up events and stories that never happened. Let the families and survivors heal,” reads a statement posted to a petition page.

Univision on Thursday tweeted a statement which reads: “Univision has set out to create a report that is deeply respectful of the many people whose lives were impacted by this tragedy, and, at the same time, is faithful to the facts underlying this horrible crime.”

On Thursday it was expected that families and friends of those lost in the shooting would gather at the Pulse.
