#HipHopTurns45: Hip-Hop Celebrates Its 45th Birthday Today

TDI Awards - 2018 Tribeca Film Festival

Source: Astrid Stawiarz / Getty

On this day 45 years ago, DJ Kool Herc put into motion what would become one of the most influential forms of music and culture by way of a birthday party he hosted for his sister in the Bronx. Seen as Hip-Hop‘s day of birth, Aug. 11 has been recognized for years now, and the culture continues to thrive in ways few would imagine.

History.com writes:

Like any style of music, hip hop has roots in other forms, and its evolution was shaped by many different artists, but there’s a case to be made that it came to life precisely on this day in 1973, at a birthday party in the recreation room of an apartment building in the west Bronx, New York City. The location of that birthplace was 1520 Sedgwick Avenue, and the man who presided over that historic party was the birthday girl’s brother, Clive Campbell—better known to history as DJ Kool Herc, founding father of hip hop.

Born and raised to the age of 10 in Kingston, Jamaica, DJ Kool Herc began spinning records at parties and between sets his father’s band played while he was a teenager in the Bronx in the early 1970s. Herc often emulated the style of Jamaican “selectors” (DJs) by “toasting” (i.e., talking) over the records he spun, but his historical significance has nothing to do with rapping. Kool Herc’s contribution to hip hop was even more fundamental.

The term “Hip-Hop” wasn’t widely used in its early days but became a useful term to encompass all aspects of the culture by the late ’70’s and early ’80’s. Hip-Hop proponents such as the Zula Nation promote four chief elements of the overall culture as listed: Deejaying. Emceeing. Breaking. Graffiti.

Other aspects include beat-boxing, street fashion, street language, street knowledge, and street entrepreneurialism as listed by The Temple of Hip Hop founded by longtime veteran rapper KRS-One.

It was actually the turn of the decade when Hip-Hop’s evolution was at its most robust and by the mid-80’s, the call and response, syncopated style of rapping evolved with the emergence of microphone masters such as Rakim, the aforementioned KRS-One, Slick Rick, Kool G Rap, Roxanne Shante, Big Daddy Kane, LL Cool J, Ultra Magnetic MCs, Schooly D and many others.

Today, Hip-Hop is now a billion-dollar business with rappers who got their start in the ’80’s like Jay-Z now one of its richest acts who used music to propel his various business ventures. And like the early ’80’s and 90’s, the genre is still largely male-dominated.

Early successful acts such as Salt-N-Pepa, Queen Latifah, Lil’ Kim, and Yo-Yo laid the groundwork for the likes of Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, Rapsody and other women artists who have amassed large fanbases in defiance of the gender imbalance.

Of the chief elements, graffiti and breakdancing remain viable but very exclusive niches that survive partly due to nostalgia and also a reverence for the preservation of the culture. Deejaying has remained a vital cog in the game, although that art has also gone through a series of metamorphoses.

There might be some that say Hip-Hop has lost its way, pining for days of old. Like Yasiin Bey (FKA Mos Def) famously said on the intro song “Fear Not Of Man” from his debut solo LP Black On Both Sides, “People talk about hip-hop like it’s some giant livin’ in the hillside” — essentially saying the music, culture and all of its participants shape what Hip-Hop is, not the other way around.

As long as there’s a need to express one’s self artistically by bending sound, movement, and images to their will, Hip-Hop will undoubtedly live forever.

Episode 83: “Word Salad” tell for Cognitive Dissonance on CNN Today

Topics:

  • Remember: The “news” has an agenda and is part of the political process
  • Examples of “word salad” on CNN’s Brian Selter’s show today
  • President Trump has raised our awareness; we now know to question the “news”

 

I fund my Periscopes and podcasts via audience micro-donations on Patreon. I prefer this method over accepting advertisements or working for a “boss” somewhere because it keeps my voice independent. No one owns me, and that is rare. I’m trying in my own way to make the world a better place, and your contributions help me stay inspired to do that.

Racism Today?

Everyone seems to be in such a hurry to scream ‘racism’ these days… ever wonder why? A customer walks into an establishment and asks, “In what aisle
could I find the Polish sausage?” The clerk looks at him and says, “Are you Polish?”

The guy (clearly offended) says, “Well, yes I am. But let me ask you something. If I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian?
Or if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German? Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish? Or if I
had asked for a Taco, would you ask if I was Mexican? If I asked for some Irish whiskey, would you ask if I was Irish?”

The clerk says, “Well, no, I probably wouldn’t!”

With deep self-righteous indignation, the guy says, “Well then, why did you ask me if I’m Polish because I asked for Polish sausage?”

The clerk replied, “Because you’re in Home Depot.”

Kurt Cobain’s Cardigan, Jimi Hendrix’s Bracelet, and More Iconic Items on the Auction Block Today

kurt cobain

How much is a sweater worn by Kurt Cobain worth? According to an auction site, the olive cardigan Cobain sported during Nirvana’s 1993 MTV Unplugged performance merits anywhere from $ 40,000 to $ 60,000. Outrageous? Maybe at first glance, but when compared with the estimates for clothing and accessories from the wardrobes of other musical icons also up for sale, Cobain’s moth-eaten knit seems almost competitively priced. Jimi Hendrix’s favorite bracelet, for example, picked out at the Portobello Road Market and partially made of plastic, is predicted to fetch between $ 25,000 and $ 35,000. Several of Michael Jackson’s jackets are also available, as are items from Elvis Presley, Madonna, Freddie Mercury, and John Lennon. For those who can’t decide what to pick up from the sale, we’ve highlighted our five favorite picks above—but hurry, you have only until 10:00 a.m. PST to place your bid.

How a Gay Dad Comes out Today – and Every Day

“Titanium metal!” my son exclaimed. “Like a fast robot police sports car!”

“Pink!” my daughter excitedly squealed.

“And what do you think?” I asked my husband, as we were shopping for our new car. “You need to like the color, too.”

A salesperson in the showroom, overhearing our conversation, inquired, “Why does your brother need to like the color of the car you’re buying?”

Since coming out over 20 years ago, I’ve realized that coming out is not a one and done thing.

But now, as a gay dad, with a husband and two kids, coming out happens pretty much on a weekly, if not, daily, basis.

This September, my son started playing hockey, and I’m the assistant coach.

During our coaches meeting, many of the coaches in the room mentioned that we hadn’t received an email, inviting use to fill out one of the forms we were reviewing.

The reply?

“Your wives probably filled it out, without you knowing!”

I don’t intentionally come out every day. Or even purposely call myself a gay dad. No big announcements, no celebratory parties, no viral YouTube videos… well, okay… maybe oneor two

Yet, the reality is, I am a proud gay dad, whose family looks a bit different than the majority of families where we live.

Earlier this year, my husband I and were out walking with our kids, and new neighbors came up to introduce themselves.

After a bit of small talk, they then asked, “So… what’s going on here… Full House? — guys raising kids together?”

“Well, kind of, but in this case, we’re husbands,” we replied.

Them: “Husbands?”

Me: “Husbands.”

Them: “Husbands?”

Me: “Yes… husbands.”

Them: “Oh… you’re a same-sex couple! Honey — we have a same-sex couple on our new street!”

I know not every coming out moment is funny and not every coming out moment garners a positive reaction.

I also know that barriers still exist for so many LGBTQ individuals, and that some people still feel that they have to hide this part of their identity.

Personally, I’m inspired by those who have “come out” before me — who were visible on the first National Coming Out Day, 27 years ago, when it wasn’t easy to be heard.

Twenty years ago, the hardest words to ever come out of my mouth were, “I’m gay” — and unfortunately, the reactions weren’t as positive or as humorous as the reactions I get now.

For so many youth the reactions still aren’t favorable.

In fact, it’s estimated that 25-40 percent of homeless youth identify as LGBTQ.

It’s one of the reasons why I want to live my life so transparent and so visible.

I know that I don’t have to come out in those every day moments but I do feel a responsibility to be visible and to be out.

I want to be a role model for those who aspire to be out, but don’t think they can.

I want to change perception of what families look like, and inspire those who think that by coming out, they have to give up their dream of being a parent.

I want to help LGBTQ youth so that they feel they can live their authentic lives.

One of the best notes I have ever received about one of my blog posts, was from a mother, whose son was having a hard time coming out. He was afraid of being rejected and he thought that by coming out, he would have to give up his dream of being a dad. After reading my post, her son had the courage to come out and to live his authentic life. This woman’s letter was so heartfelt, and showed me how important it is to be visible — because you never know who is going to be helped by your story.

I recognize how fortunate I am. I can be a dad to two incredible kids, a husband, a professional in business world, an assistant hockey coach, a blogger — and an out, gay man.

No one bats an eye or treats me differently when they find out that, no, I actually don’t have a wife. That tall, handsome, man I live with, he’s my husband and papa to our kids — and I love him dearly.

Oh… and the choice of color we selected for the car?

While there was a part of me who really wanted to choose pink… driving a fast robot police sports car is cool, too. Plus, it looks pretty awesome parked in our driveway beside the even cooler mini-van.

Sports News in Brief: Mark McGwire Confident He Could Still Disgrace Game At High Level Today

LOS ANGELES—Despite retiring from the sport 14 years ago, 52-year-old former All-Star hitter Mark McGwire confidently told reporters Friday that he could still disgrace baseball at the highest level today. “I might not be what I once was, but I could definitely get out there on the field and completely tarnish the reputation of the sport just like I used to,” said McGwire, adding that while he enjoys working as a hitting coach for the Dodgers, he is often nostalgic for the days when he would wake up every morning, lie to teammates and fans, and let down everyone connected to baseball. “I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t considered coming back for another season to destroy the legacy of an entire generation of players. Look, I’m confident in my abilities, and there’s no doubt in my mind that I could go out there …

How A 6-Year-Old Viewed Her Parents’ Divorce — And How It Affects Her Today

“When My Parents Split Up” is a HuffPost series that explores what it’s like to have your parents divorce at all ages, from infancy to adulthood. Want to share your experience as a child of divorce? Email us at divorce@huffingtonpost.com.

Maegan Ellicott was about six when her parents divorced. She can barely recall a time when they were married and her family was all under one roof. What she does remember is how hard her mom and dad tried to put the needs of their daughters first after the separation.

“It wasn’t perfect and it was still a very difficult experience for me and my family but I know how lucky my older sister and I were to have parents that handled divorce the way they did,” Elicott, 29, told The Huffington Post recently. 

Below, the Alaska resident shares how her parents were able to keep the peace — and how the split affected her views on marriage and long-term relationships. 

Breaking The News:

“I actually don’t recall how they broke the news; I don’t remember them discussing it with me and my sister or my Dad moving out. I do remember my Dad finding an apartment about a mile from the house we grew up in. I’m not sure if my lack of memories of this time period is because of my young age or because I simply don’t want to remember. My sister was 12 when they divorced and has told me they sat us down in the living room and discussed it with us very calmly.”

The Custody Arrangement:

“My parents had a fairly odd custody arrangement — they really tried to keep it 50/50. I spent Monday night to Wednesday morning at my Dad’s house. On Wednesday afternoon I went home from school with my Mom until Friday morning. I swapped houses every other weekend. Of course changing houses mid-school week meant I left a lot of things at houses — this brought my parents into a lot of contact. They also traded most holidays. The only thing set in stone was my Dad had Christmas Eve and my Mom had Christmas morning. And they both were sure to attend my birthday parties.”

The First Few Years:

“The constant moving back and forth was very confusing for many of my friends (especially because this was before smart phones and quick contact!) but I really don’t remember having problems with it. Kids are very adaptable. I remember having friends and later step-sisters (when my dad remarried) that only stayed every other weekend with their dads. I felt bad that they spent so little time with them. My parents worked hard to have a good relationship; I am sure it was incredibly difficult and painful for both of them but I have no memory of them fighting ever. My parents never complained about the other to me and I am so appreciative of that today.

 My Dad remarried when I was 10  and my Mom did the same when I was 13. Each time I gained two step-siblings. I think the fact that I was so young when they came into my family allowed me to really bond with them and grow up with them. I appreciate how fluid and flexible my family is and how distinctions based on birth parents were never important.”

 The Impact:

“I’ve realized that some of my views on relationships were definitely influenced by my parents’ divorce. I don’t value marriage at all. I have no desire to marry and do not see it as something to aspire to. I don’t think I ever dreamed of my wedding day like they say little girls do. This is not to say I don’t think you can be in a committed relationship but I don’t find marriage any more special than a committed relationship. It could all be because of the divorce or it could just be me. I guess I just don’t see it as necessarily permanent. I know it can be — my grandparents have been married 60+ years and are still very happy.  I just don’t desire it for myself. If someday I meet a person to whom marriage is really important I would consider it but I would prefer to just elope or go to a courthouse if that happened.” 

Her Relationship With Her Parents Today:

“Both my parents have been in their second marriages for approximately 20 years now and I am so lucky to have such a wonderful large family that gets along. All my major life events have been celebrated with both sides of my family present. When I graduated from my Master’s program, my Dad, stepmom and Mom all flew from California to Alaska for my graduation. We then traveled around Alaska for about a week together. For me it was normal, but I realize that many people can’t imagine a man traveling with his current and ex-wife without there being tension.

I’m visiting my family in a few months and today I woke up to an email from my stepmother telling everyone in the family when I would be home and that they would be hosting a family night while I’m there — included in the email was my Mom and her wife. Things like that mean the world to me.”

The Takeaway:

“Going from house to house was normal for me but my parents were also smart enough to get me in counseling very early and to continue it as needed throughout my childhood. It was so helpful. If you’re a parent reading this, know that while kids are very adaptable, it’s a good idea to find a child psychologist to talk to your children. It will help them work through all the changes in their lives.”

MADISON, CT—After several warnings to stop his fidgeting and keep quiet during the town’s 9/11 memorial service, 6-year-old Caleb Goetz was sternly reminded by his mother that today is a sad day, sources confirmed this morning. “Caleb, we’re sad today, so no more goofing around. Got it?” said the boy’s mother, Hannah Goetz, in a sharp whisper, bending down to look the child in his eyes and tell him to stop running his Matchbox car up and down her pant leg and making engine noises with his mouth while the people at the podium were speaking into the microphone. “Do you see all the people’s faces? Everyone’s sad. This is very sad, okay? If you can’t stand still until they finish raising the flag and lighting the candles, then no Legends Of Chima later.

The Best ’90s Movie Makeovers Are Still Totally Stylish Today

she's all that movie still

Oh, to go to high school in the nineties. Remember? Back then the educational institution was more of an everything-goes playground in which crop tops never violated the student dress code, heartthrob Andrew Keegan was not in a kombucha-brewing cult, and everyone knew how—and when—to break out into a synchronized dance routine. Well, at least in the movies. But the most important part of the slumber party favorite flicks? Every nerdy protagonist was granted a geek-to-chic makeover. Maybe it requires a dye job and a tube top like Jawbreaker’s Fern Mayo, or a bohemian rhapsody of a prom dress like Never Been Kissed’s Josie Geller, and maybe it’s the wisdom of experience, but most of these “before” looks aren’t so bad either. But the time has come for a trip down memory lane, so cue up that Smash Mouth, take off those glasses, shake out that messy bun, and get ready for homeroom: We’ve got the best movie makeovers from the decade—and the today-ready takes that will get you an A+.

The Models Redefining American Beauty Today

american models

In the modeling industry, America has always had its share of superstars—Jerry Hall, Cindy Crawford, and Karlie Kloss, anyone?—but in recent history, it’s begun to feel like the influx of international beauties has overwhelmed the presence of homegrown talent. But just like that, a new generation of “Born in the U.S.A.” beauties has begun to dominate the industry. Effortlessly cool best friends Lexi Boling and Binx Walton have led the charge, followed by the rise of Instagirls like Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, and Gigi Hadid; Texan Vanessa Moody was among the season’s top walkers; Californian newcomer Alice Metza is already a Prada regular; and Midwesterner Grace Hartzel emerged as the campaign star to beat, starring in ads for Calvin Klein, Tod’s, Valentino, and Hugo Boss.

According to Jeff and Mary Clarke of Mother Model Management—the scouts who first discovered both Kloss and Hartzel—the resurgence of the American model all comes back to the charisma of the girls themselves. “There will always be something undeniable about a fresh American beauty,” says Mary. “They are inspiring to young teenage girls in middle America, to women who find them more relatable, and to the casting directors and designers who find them a refreshing image to build on.” Given the renewed focus on models as celebrities, it makes sense that the American girls who resonate are all blessed in the personality department. As the definition of all-American expands, the models selected are beginning to reflect the nation’s variety, as well. “It is an exciting time in the fashion world,” says Mary. “We are happy to see the term American beauty embrace more cultural and ethnic diversity.” Get to know eleven of the models representing the new era of what it means to be all-American.

“Today” Cuts Off Janelle Monae’s Police Brutality Speech

Janelle Monae rocked NBC’s “Today” Friday morning in New York, but when the singer started to talk about police brutality, she was abruptly cut off.

Monae appeared to promote a new Wondaland Records album, “The Eephus” and performed the anti-police brutality song “Hell You Talmbout.”

At the song’ end, Monàe told the crowd:

“Yes Lord! God bless America! God bless all the lost lives to police brutality. We want white America to know that we stand tall today. We want black America to know we stand tall today. We will not be silenced…”

And, then he was silenced. The “Today” reporters started to talk over the Atlanta-based singer. Check it out below.

News: Single Woman With 3 Young Children Unaware She Subject Of 984 Judgments Today

LINCOLN, NE—Oblivious to the thoughts and looks directed toward her as she shopped for groceries, stopped by the post office, and ran several other errands with her three young children, single mother Karen Nichols, 29, was reportedly completely unaware that she was the focus of 984 separate judgments by strangers this afternoon.

According to reports, during the five hours in which Nichols was accompanied by her kids, Erik, Sadie, and James—aged 1, 2, and 4, respectively—to a variety of locations throughout the city, she was the subject of nearly a thousand negative assumptions about her financial situation, relative parenting capabilities, and general promiscuity.

“My God—that is just so sad,” thought 45-year-old local resident Rebecca Mueller, just one of 16 people in the local Stop and Shop parking lot who leveled a total of 29 judgments at Nichols as she struggled to secure her crying youngest child …

This Makeup Artist’s Monster Transformations Are The Scariest Things You’ll See Today

Special effects and makeup artist Emily Anderson’s Instagram page is one you won’t be able to unsee. But we’re not sure whether that’s a good or bad thing.

The 23-year-old’s account is filled with hauntingly awesome makeup transformations turning Anderson into monsters, gremlins and villains. Armed with lots of water-based paints, highly-pigmented shadow palettes and patience, she’s morphed her upper body into three-dimensional versions of Doomsday, Medusa and Gizmo.

emily anderson makeup

Anderson honed her makeup artistry skills at the Cinema Makeup School in Los Angeles and on the sets of film, TV shows and music videos, including “Lizzie Borden’s Revenge,” “American Horror Story” and David Guetta and Nicki Minaj’s “Hey Mama.”

She began dabbling with monster transformations back in 2014, and picked it up again in March. “I was inspired originally by body paint that pro wrestler Finn Balor had worn actually,” she told The Huffington Post. “I ended up having the chance to do his body paint for a match in San Jose for Wrestle Mania Weekend.”

To help seamlessly blend the makeup out into the crevices and folds of her skin, Anderson uses a total of four makeup brushes and sometimes the BeautyBlender. For more heavy duty long-wear makeup looks, she reaches for airbrush paints.

All of Anderson’s monster transformations seem incredibly complex to achieve. “The raptor was pretty complicated because of the angles involved, but some of the Disney scenes or Gizmo took more detail,” she said. “I try to challenge myself each time so they are all a little difficult or complicated for me to work out in some way!”

emily anderson makeup

When it’s time to take it all off, she swears by soap and water for the water-based paints, 99-percent alcohol to remove the airbrush and alcohol colors, and Neutrogena makeup remover wipes for anything that’s left over.

See some of Emily Anderson’s most gruesome transformations below and head over to her Instagram page for more looks.

Rihanna’s New Video for “BBHMM” Is the Scariest Thing You’ll Watch Today

rihanna-bbhmm[1]

After teasing her new music video for “Bitch Better Have My Money” at Sunday night’s BET Awards, Rihanna finally released the complete cinematic seven-minute clip this morning. Directed by Megaforce, the short horror film depicts Rihanna and her posse acting out a wild revenge plot on the wife of RiRi’s accountant who ran off with her money. Watch carefully and you’ll notice the video is replete with references to cult films such as Oldboy (that Goyard trunk in the first shot is just as haunting), Carrie, and even Weekend at Bernie’s. Needless to say, the video is NSFW because, really, would Bad Gal RiRi have it any other way?

Today, #LoveWins Along With the 14th Amendment

June 26th, 2015: Gay marriage ended — suddenly, in a 5-4 Supreme Court ruling, it became just marriage.

I remember arguing so publicly 11 years ago on CNN and every other news network. Let’s revisit those arguments.



And now, it’s law, and nothing that man from Concerned Women was worried about is happening, will happen, has happened. Just the opposite. For most people in America, nothing really changed as each state legalized, and the patchwork of marriage began.

And now, that fight is over for good.

I remember its real beginnings. AIDS. I was there during the 1980s when a president wouldn’t mention the word, and a world turned its back on the sick. I remember ambulances not taking patients, doctors not touching people, nurses turning away and ultimately, funeral homes refusing bodies. In the 20th century, no less.

And I remember families shutting out loved ones. Couples that had been together 20 years — one would get sick and the other was locked out of the hospital room, and ultimately locked out of their own house by family who had claims. You see, no marriage, no claims to property, to visitation — nothing. Suddenly, when one got sick, the other lost their life and often their belongings. And it was legal.

The only way to rectify that was marriage, period, end of story. And the fight began.

Now, in the age of barebacking and PrEP therapies, younger gay men don’t remember the root of the struggle, how it came to a head, finally, in the 1980s with the advent of that terrible disease that still had no cure and no really effective, safe, long-term treatment.

We owe this day, those on the side of marriage equality, to the Republicans in more ways than one. First, there is the beautifully drafted 14th Amendment to the Constitution; one written at time of reconstruction, after slavery. It states:

Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

In other words, equal equals equal, and since marriage is contract law, you can’t discriminate based on gender, sexual orientation, race, or any other reason. Period.

Five of the justices got that. The other four, not so much, but like dinosaurs, they are falling in the tar pit of the wrong side of history, screaming and flailing about as they go. But going they are.

In one week the court has said yes, you can keep your health care America. Then the people said that a 150 year old flag was, in fact, bigotry and hatred. And now, the court again has said that gay people can marry in all 50 states. Not a bad week for Americans.

Reaction all day has been tears, hugs from strangers, congratulatory remarks. Finally.

I will save the nay-saying about gays in other countries and the atrocities that still exists. I will spare the fact that ENDA, which guarantees I can’t be fired for being gay, still isn’t the law of all 50 states.

Because today it wasn’t #LoveWins. Today #WeAllWon because that fabulous document and that great amendment did its job.

Justice Kennedy, bless you. May joy find you and may your family be blessed. Because today, you created so many families in one fell stroke.

To all of you out there that have fought, straight, gay, whatever, I love you. Thank you. Today you didn’t slap us down or make us feel second class. Today, we are Americans, one and all.

Spotify launches today on PS4 and PS3 with PlayStation Music

Spotify launches today on PS4 and PS3 with PlayStation MusicMusic playback on PlayStation consoles gets a boost today with the arrival of PlayStation Music featuring Spotify, which replaces Sony's Music Unlimited service. The app is launching in 41 markets worldwide, allowing most of Spotify's 60 million users — three-fourths of whom use the ad-supported free version of the service — to stream music while they play games on their PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4. You can use PlayStation Music completely for free: It doesn't require a PlayStation Plus membership, and you can use it with a free Spotify account or Spotify Premium, which costs $ 9.99 per month. Representatives for Sony and Spotify told Polygon during a demo of the PS4 app last week that the two companies worked together closely on PlayStation Music, and it shows: "Seamless" is the best word we can think of to describe the experience.

Hot Transsexuals are waiting for You!

Access to Care Is a Way to Save Transgender Youth’s Lives Today

So far this year, the transgender community has seen a mind-boggling amount of violence and loss.

Whether it is Penny Proud in New Orleans, Louisiana, or Bri Golec in Akron, Ohio, in each case the circumstances are eerily similar: Trans women losing their lives unnecessarily as victims of brutal, violent crimes. Other high profile cases of suicides among transgender individuals, or cases of discrimination suffered by transgender people in either housing or the workplace have captured the nation’s attention by sharing the challenges that transgender people face by being marginalized, othered, harassed, hurt and misunderstood. Collectively these cases have created a rise in social media posts with a poignant and all-too-familiar hash tag, #translivesmatter.

Among all of this loss, it is the Leelah Alcorn case, and others like hers, that I cannot seem to shake from my head as a pediatrician. You may recall that Leelah was the 17-year-old transgender woman who chose to, or was driven to, end her own life. At the time, the case garnered national headlines with the main focus on Leelah’s public social media posts in the weeks preceding her death. These haunting posts discussed her negative experiences with conversion therapy to supposedly “cure” her of her transgender identity.

However, the undiscussed aspect of the Leelah Alcorn case is that access to healthcare, particularly for gender-affirming medical therapies may have saved her life.

Re-read some of her social media posts before she took her life, “I can’t wait until I am 18 to begin transitioning,” and “I can’t wait one more day.” These posts point to her inability to access appropriate healthcare as a potential immediate precipitating factor in her death; one that may have been 100 percent preventable.

I suspect this aspect of the story was not pursued with vigor out of respect to Leelah’s grieving parents, who the media chose to, understandably, not challenge with respect to the rationale behind the decisions they may have made or not made for their child. And it certainly is not my intention to unnecessarily stir the pot, create drama or inflict more pain for on the Alcorn family.

However, there is a larger educational point that needs to be said loud and clear for the benefit of other families and for transgender or gender nonconforming youth. That message is simple: For transgender youth, access to health care services saves lives.

Truth is that in many centers, including the Gender and Sex Development Program that I co-direct at Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, adolescents like Leelah shouldn’t have to wait until the age of 18 to begin engaging in gender-affirming care. Youth should and do have the opportunity to begin the process of transitioning in a way that allows them to live life as their authentic self.

Our Gender Program’s multidisciplinary team and other programs models across the country are complete with pediatricians, nurses, child development specialists, mental health providers and endocrinologists all committed to working with youth and families who are seeking advice or guidance in confronting the challenges of raising a gender non-conforming or transgender child. In many instances these individuals are not familiar with sources of support in the community or options related to medical therapies and interventions.

The Endocrine Society and World Professional Association of Transgender Health Professionals (WPATH) have what are now considered widely-used clinical care guidelines that support the use of pubertal blocking medications in certain gender non-conforming children or early adolescents based upon pubertal and developmental age. They also support the initiation of cross sex hormones in transgender young people as young as 16 years of age (and in some case and some centers even younger).

It is not unusual for teams such as ours to encounter parents or families of children that do not initially support these medical interventions — often due to a denial about the child’s authentic gender identity, a lack of education about the safety of potential medical interventions or a deeply rooted personal, religious or cultural objection. In the overwhelming majority of these cases (but certainly not all), we can work effectively with families and individuals to find a common path moving forward, or at the very least finding a path that ensures the safety and well-being of the child or adolescent.

Centers like ours strive to dispel myths that label being transgender as an affectation or pathology as opposed to the stable identity it represents for most individuals. We also work with families to see their children through a broader and more realistic lens than the spectrum of dysfunction that is too often the focus of negative media attention.

For, while it remains true that too many transgender youth are the victims of hate crimes, and too many become homeless or contemplate suicide, this spectrum of dysfunction does not capture the strength, perseverance, pride and resilience that in my professional opinion more accurately captures the spirit of the young transgender people I see each and every day.

Alongside educating families, it is important to educate the adolescents themselves about their individual rights with regard to medical decision-making particularly as it relates to mature minor statutes on the state level or legal emancipation as a last resort for those who may be at the point of crisis or self-harm.

In essence, for many individuals like Leelah, access to one of the many centers across the country that care for gender non-conforming children or adolescents could literally be a lifeline to a future as their authentic selves.

And most importantly, access to care at these sites can save lives starting today.

Kim Kardashian and Jared Leto Go Blonde on Blonde at Balmain (and More Things We Loved at Paris Fashion Week Today)

Photo: Courtesy of Getty Images

From the successful early morning debut of the new Carven designers, Alexis Martial and Adrien Caillaudaud, to a new line of Le Smokings for It girls the world over, with a major Kardashian moment and, of course, some major fashion in between, here are the best bits from our agendas today at Paris Fashion Week.

1. RACIL: a new take on an old look for It girls everywhere. Racil Chalhoub’s new concept line of Le Smokings and tuxedo shirts may be made entirely in Paris, but its sensibility is distinctly international: With three silhouettes, ranging from palazzo to cigarette pants, some with pink silk tuxedo stripes, some studded with multicolored crystals, and an overall aim to avoid stiffness at any cost, it’s one heck of a decidedly useful debut.



Expand

2. Blonde ambition at Balmain and beyond: After spotting Kanye at Dries Van Noten yesterday, we were sure that his better half wasn’t far behind, and she did not disappoint! Debuting a new peroxide blonde slicked-back do and body-conscious black dress, no less! Add one also recently cropped and also very blonde Jared Leto and you’ve got a whole new take on Blonde on Blonde.

3. Most unlikely front-row fashion twinning: Mos Def and Rick Owens, anyone? The pair was sporting the same laceless sneaker-style sock boot today, from opposite sides of the latter’s runway show this afternoon.

4. The winter boot we want now: A rubber treaded sole (so winter storm–appropriate!) in trademark Louboutin red? Sign us up.​

Is That You, Margot Tenenbaum? 5 Things We Loved Today at Milan Fashion Week

Photo: Courtesy of Karlie Kloss / @karliekloss

It was the chic version of move-in day at Milan Fashion Week, with press appointments revealing both Agnona’s new digs and Paula Cademartori’s
jewel box of an HQ, with the fashion set taking in Giambattista’s latest scene, tallying up The Royal Tenenbaums references and taking in the always glamorous Versace show. Here are all the best bits from our agendas.

1. Agnona’s housewarming party: Sleek new offices and an intensely chic take on outerwear—from tailored overcoats, tunics, and waistcoats to a new take on tweedy English toppers, here done in a Prince of Wales check and Shetland tweed double cashmere—made Agnona a very welcome stop this morning.

2. Giamba gets groovy: Giambattista Valli unleashed his psychedelic baby dolls in the middle of Milan this afternoon with a giddy, girlish runway show (the temporary face tattoos sported by the girls were less Charles Manson than one might have imagined) that was one part Janis Joplin, one part Fifty Shades of Grey (hello, leather harnesses!).

3. Rainbow’s End at Marco de Vincenzo: Marco de Vincenzo’s fall 2015 show took place in the Teatro Franco Parenti, with a glass-fronted set (all the better to build the anticipation!) created by the artist Patrizio Travagli, and it felt both uber-hip and entirely perfect for his latest buzzy offering: from sleek, slinky lurex looks in rainbow tones looks to imminently covetable footwear (chunky boots came with thickly braided heels, bicolored heel versions called to mind the uber-chic equestrian and strappy stiletto sandals with that same braided velvet; a good night out).

4. The Margot Tenenbaum movement picks up steam: From Alessandro Michele’s beret-clad Gucci girls to Veronica Etro’s mink intarsia wrappers, it’s been a full-on Milanese lovefest for the Wes Anderson–created Margot Tenenbaum. Bally had its own take on the Gwyneth Paltrow character, imagined at its presentation as sporting an electric purple moto jacket. (And can’t you just see it?)

5. Versace goes viral: With an intricate set—a metal grid of its iconic insignias disguised a pair of staircases through which models entered to some
catwalking heavy hitters (Natasha Poly, Karlie Kloss) and a series of final looks encrusted with all the makings of a Twitter trending topic (hashtags, “@” signs, et al)—Versace’s runway show was very wham, bam, thank-you-ma’am glam: and decidedly meant for the modern era.

Proenza Schouler’s Abstract Black Eyeliner and Sporty Headbands: The Beauty Look We Loved Today

Photographed by Kevin Tachman

The Proenza Schouler woman has always been pretty particular about her beauty routine.  She knows what she likes: namely, clean skin, no frills, and the undone downtown hair to match. For fall, however, designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez took their girl on a day trip to the museum—The Whitney, to be exact, which showed its last uptown exhibition in October in anticipation of its move to the Meatpacking district in Lower Manhattan this spring. Back home again, and feeling inspired by a spin through its abstract expressionist works, she dipped into a bold new makeup palette: “They’re still the [Proenza] girls,” backstage pro Diane Kendal said, referencing the look of models like Liya Kibede and Binx Walton, who boasted the same clean skin and muted lips of years past. But this season, Kendal was adding a surprising element to the face in the form of a painterly swipe of MAC Chromacake in Black, which she applied with her ring finger in a single smudge from the inner corners outward along the lid.

“I’m just dipping my finger in water first,” Kendal continued of the obsidian watercolor effect, which she was perfecting herself on each individual model. “[Jack and Lazaro] wanted to push the look a little this season,” she explained of the directive from McCollough and Hernandez, which also made its way to hairstylist Anthony Turner. “I’m using a lot of product,” Turner laughed of the layers of Bumble & Bumble Prep, Thickening Hairspray, Surf Spray, and CitySwept Finish Spray to create a “kind of punk, very matte, and very anarchic” texture. Just before they took the runway, he made use of another kind of wide black line altogether by positioning a thick fabric headband low across the forehead. Perfect for urban girls about to embark on an afternoon of gallery hopping—or a late night of clubbing.

Bob Marley’s 10 Greatest Protest Songs That Still Ring True Today

February 6, 2015 marks what would been the 70th birthday of Bob Marley. And nearly 34 years after his cancer-related death in 1981, the reggae pioneer's songs of love, dissatisfaction, peace, and protest are still as powerful and timely as they were when they originally moved the people of Jamaica and beyond in his heyday.

3 Surprising Facts About Family Today

The world and our lives are changing at speeds never before experienced. The family, like everything else, has been doing its own kind of changing.

There are three facts about today’s family that many of you may not know about.

1. The traditional Mom and Dad in the house raising the kids no longer
represent the majority of families in the U.S. As of 2014, the majority of families are made up of stepfamilies, singles and families living together outside of marriage.

2. Two out of three people have a step-relative. The Pew Research Center determined in 2014, 40 percent of married couples with children are stepcouples. In comparison, only 13 percent of families in 1960 were stepfamilies.

3. The divorce rate among remarriages that involve children is high: 62-74 percent .

Surprising, right?

You wouldn’t know about this new shift in the family by watching mainstream TV and movies. The nuclear family is often presented as the norm although that’s changing with shows like, “Modern Family.” Yet, even in this show, the stepfather (Jay Pritchett) doesn’t have to worry about walking on his stepson’s father’s toes because the father lives out of the country.

Gloria is happily accepted by her new husband’s adult children and doesn’t have the challenges most stepmothers have. Today’s modern stepfamily usually paints a much more complex picture. Biological parents who are both very involved and often clash about parenting styles, stepparents who try to parent reluctant kids and kids who are going back and forth between two homes, trying to figure the whole thing out. The list is endless.

Unfortunately, many family therapists treat second families like first families. Given the biological differences in combined families and all the moving parts that don’t exist in first families, this is a colossal mistake.

Longitudinal studies that focus on stepfamilies are pathetically sparse but we know enough to say that children almost always naturally feel more loyal to their biological parents.

As a therapist who specializes in working with stepfamilies (whether the adults are married, living together or dating) I’ve witnessed the many painful complications these families experience. Simply put, it’s not easy to be in a stepfamily. Whether you’re the kid that has to go back and forth between two homes, the parents who have to split their parenting time 50/50, or the stepparent who comes in to a ready-made system.

The jury is still out about how this new shift in family composition will ultimately impact the culture. One thing we know for sure is that just because a family becomes instant, an instant family it does not make.

“Blended” family myths, stepparents who parent before making solid relationships with their stepkids (which more often than not takes years), poor boundaries between exes, too much contact with exes, not giving the kids enough time to adjust to the new family, stepparents, especially stepmoms, who are treated like yesterday’s news…all conspire to make these families very difficult to be a part of.

Friends and family don’t help. One complaint from a stepparent, a complaint that would be normal and natural coming from the mouth of a biological parent, is met with, “You knew it was a package deal.” In order words, put up or shut up. In other words, not helpful.

Education and support for all stepfamily members is key, not only for these combined families, but society as well.

The Glass Can Be Half Full

Stepfamilies don’t need to be doomed before the bride and groom say, “I do.” There are many ways to work towards having a healthy remarriage and combined family. Here are just a few tips to get started:

1. All members of the new stepfamily need to be given time to adjust to new people and new dynamics. This often takes 4-6 years. The Brady Bunch was a TV show, not a model for stepfamilies.

2. Get rid of the term” blended” families. What does that even mean? It creates an unrealistic expectation and using the term “stepfamily” works just fine.

3. Stepparents, especially stepmoms, need to stop being demonized and minimized. The new couple should operate as a team with the biological parent being the disciplinarian when possible.

4. Parents need to find partners who support rather than compete with their relationships with their children.

5. Children need to be prioritized appropriately and with patience, when it comes to accepting the new members of their family, especially their new stepparent.

The nature of life is change and we don’t need to be afraid of this new face of the American family. We just need to know how to adjust and adapt to the diversity, different households and family units that currently make up contemporary family life.

College In 2005 Was Very Different Than College Today

May 9, 2014 marks the 9th birthday of The Huffington Post. In honor of the mini-milestone, we took a look back at how going to college has changed since 2005.

This was your laptop. MacBook Pros wouldn’t be released for another year.

This is how you caught up on the news … newspapers. Twitter didn’t exist yet. Neither did Tumblr.

College was way cheaper.

So were textbooks.

This was how you got new music. But then the RIAA would randomly try to use your college to track down users and fine them.

Beyoncé had recently split from Destiny’s Child (which was heartbreaking) and had only released one solo album.

Fall Out Boy had just gone mainstream. My Chemical Romance was in. It was a prime pop punk-emo era, before being a hipster was really a thing.

“Total Request Live” was still on. So between classes you had a chance of catching 45 seconds of 10 music videos, the only time MTV actually played music.

“Family Guy” aired new episodes in 2005 for the first time in two years. It was canceled in 2001, but brought back to life in 2004 after regaining popularity through DVD sales and Adult Swim.

Pluto was still a planet.

Check out your Facebook page. Your parents and younger siblings wouldn’t be on your Facebook newsfeed since it was only for college students. And even then, in 2005, most of your friends probably weren’t using it yet either.
