    Louis Anderson, a 16-year-old aspiring biotech entrepreneur, eats dinner with an anarchist, a world-renowned tongue splitter and at least 30 people who have implanted themselves with magnets or radio-frequency identification chips, a.k.a. RFID implants, for fun on a recent Friday night in Tehachapi, Calif. We’re at Grindfest, an annual meetup of biohackers, and Louis has never met a single member of the community in the flesh before, although he’s been planning the trip for two years. They have a lot to talk about. Will artificial intelligence kill us or save us? Will global warming be worse than experts predict? When...

    Was Hillary Clinton honest with the American people about her health during the 2016 presidential campaign, or has she been hiding a severe condition all this time? That’s the question making the rounds among concerned observers after strange photos of Clinton were published online. While walking on a public sidewalk in New York last week, the former secretary of state was seen with an unnatural protrusion under her unseasonably long coat. Fashion faux pas are not usually that interesting, but Clinton’s appearance was so jarring and puzzling that questions of health were immediately raised.

    VALPARAISO, Ind. — An Indiana teen ultimately had the last laugh after being fat-shamed by a customer at a bakery, according to WXIN. Vega Blossom said she went to Designer Desserts in Valparaiso on Saturday night because they were having a sale. She waited patiently to purchase six cupcakes while the woman in front of her finalized her cake order. When she finally stepped up to the counter, she heard the customer behind her say to a friend, “Thank God, now let’s hope this fat ***** doesn’t buy all the cupcakes.” And that’s exactly what Vega decided to do. She...

    Emmanuel Macron is 24 years younger than his wife, and the incoming French president is exasperated that people keep talking about it. Discussing the assumptions and rumors about his relationship his wife, Brigitte, Macron told Le Parisien newspaper this week that “if I had been 20 years older than my wife, nobody would have thought for a single second that I couldn’t be.” It's a sentiment many French women seem to relate to. Speaking to The Washington Post's Mary Jordan ahead of the election, some suggested that the Macrons' marriage was social “revenge” for years of powerful men seeking younger...

    When Susan Allen was elected to the Minnesota House of Representatives in 2012, she became the first openly lesbian Native American woman to win office in any state legislature. But framing that achievement as one for the lesbian community alone obscures another aspect of Allen’s identity, and one that is directly connected to her Native American ancestry: Allen also identifies as “two-spirit.” While Americans are increasingly familiar with the elements that make-up our modern LGBTQ abbreviation, other, often older queer identities like two-spirit remain unappreciated to the point of erasure. But if Allen and other two-spirit folks have their way,...

She wants her identity hidden; doesn’t even want to say what country she came from. Renee...

    Iam the first transgender woman to rush sororities at the University of Michigan," Emily Kaufman captioned a selfie on Tumblr in September 2015, "and because I am representing trans people, looking cute is a must!" She wore her dark, naturally curly hair in a bob; a dainty silver necklace with starfish charms hung around her neck. Emily is bubbly and chatty and, as a sophomore, already had friends in a few of the sororities. After 18 years of what she calls “suppressed femininity,” Emily started coming out to friends and family during her freshman year; she’d spoken about her transition...

    If there’s a high bar for which social justice warriors strive, surely it was set by Britain’s first transgender gay Muslim woman. Amid the ongoing bathroom wars in America, conservative blogger Brandon Morse took to social media to call attention to Lucy Vallender, who he said “has the gold in the oppression [O]lympics.” Vallender, formerly known as Laurens before “he” became true to “herself,” is a former British soldier who had a sex operation in 2010 to switch out his male parts for female parts. Vallender would later convert to Islam, saying it’s a “peaceful” religion and take things even...
