LOS ANGELES, California, August 1, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The reboot of the 1990’s sitcom “Roseanne” will incorporate a gender fluid character, an industry news outlet reported.

Some of the new characters in the show are set to include the children of Darlene (Sarah Gilbert) and David (Johnny Galecki), according to ShowBiz411.

Their daughter, Harris, will be 14 or 15 years old and aspire to be more upwardly mobile than her parents.

But the “twist,” the outlet says, is her younger brother Mark, 9, will be “gender creative.”

The casting call requests a kid who can play “sensitive and effeminate” and “displays qualities of both young female and male traits,” the report stated.

“Roseanne” aired on ABC television, as will its eight-episode return. It ran from 1988 to 1997 and was known for pushing the envelope on social issues.

Some have counted the sitcom among several TV shows that helped lead the American movement toward acceptance of homosexuality.

The original series gave a realistic depiction based upon the stand-up comedy of Roseanne Barr of the blue-collar Connor family. It was a prime-time rating success during its nine-season run.

The series won a Peabody Award and a Golden Globe Award for best television series (comedy or musical), according to Broadway World. Series stars Roseanne Barr and John Goodman won Golden Globes for best performance by an actress and actor, respectively. Barr also won an Emmy for best lead actress, and co-star Laurie Metcalf won two supporting actress Emmys on the series.

The revival is expected to pick up where the original left off.

Barr credited President Donald Trump’s election win last year with enabling the show’s return, Wonderwall.com reported.

Barr was a supporter of candidate Trump.

She told The Hollywood Reporter in June 2016 that America would be “lucky” if Trump were to win.

“I like Trump because he financed his own [campaign],” Barr said. “That’s the only way he could’ve gotten that nomination. Because nobody wants a president who isn’t from Yale and Harvard and in the club. ‘Cause it’s all about distribution. When you’re in the club, you’ve got people that you sell to. That’s how money changes hands, that’s how business works. If you’ve got friends there, they scratch your back and blah, blah.”

She was reportedly overheard around the time ABC confirmed the eight-show run in May telling co-star Goodman she believes the current political landscape and the show’s revival are connected.

While the show’s characters are working-class Midwesterners, Barr has since denied the reboot will be about the president.

“MY NEW SHOW IS NOT ABOUT TRUMP!” she tweeted in June. “IT’S ABOUT A MIDWESTERN FAMILY.”

The “gender creative” character of “David” in the “Roseanne” revival will be a first for network TV, though cable television has had one in Asia Kate Dillon’s “gender neutral non-binary” “Taylor” on Showtime’s Billions.

 

80-Year-Old Woman Rapes 13-Year-Old Boy Every Time Her Husband Wasn’t Home

Talk about being young at heart, it’s quite rare to see people being sexually active at the age of 80.

To think we had enough with the story of Indonesian teenager marrying an elderly woman recently, another elderly woman allegedly forced a 13-year-old to have sexual intercourse with her whenever her husband was out.

80-year-old Jowo from Kota Palembang, Indonesia, was accused of repeatedly raping a 13-year-old boy after his mother, Rohana, 33, reported against the woman.

 

It is reported that Rohana found out when her son confided in her earlier this month. On July 6, at around 10 pm, the boy returned home, appearing traumatized.

Rohana quickly asked her son what was wrong, and what she heard coming out of her son’s mouth shocked her. The boy told his mother that he just ran out of  Jowo’s house because he was forced to have sex with her.

Rohana quickly asked her son what was wrong, and what she heard coming out of her son’s mouth shocked her. The boy told his mother that he just ran out of  Jowo’s house because he was forced to have sex with her.

 

According to the boy, the old lady forced him to have sex with her 10 times and she did this every time her husband wasn’t at home, she would even pay him 15 rupiahs (nearly 0 cents). She would look for her victims when she is out collecting recyclables to earn money.

 

The boy said,

“When her husband isn’t home, she will ask me to have sex with her. That night (July 6), she threatened to murder me if I didn’t comply.”

Rohana immediately brought her son to a nearby police station to file a report against the old lady after hearing of her son’s traumatizing experience.

“My son is still so young and he was forced to do such a thing. I can’t accept this.”

What’s even more devastating for Rohana and her son is that they used to frequently help Jowo and her husband by giving them money every now and then.

Artificial Wombs Reveal an Ugly Truth about the Abortion-Rights Movement

On Friday, Gizmodo published a piece by Kristen Brown entitled “How New Technology Could Threaten a Woman’s Right to Abortion.” From the title, one might suppose that some technological advancement promised further proof of the humanity of the unborn baby. After all, in just the past few months, scientists have shared some amazing discoveries: Unborn babies can recognize faces while still in the womb and also distinguish between people speaking different languages. So what is this new technology that could threaten abortion “rights”? Proof positive that unborn babies feel pain? Nope. The menace: the burgeoning development of artificial wombs. While still in the early stages, the technology looks promising. Scientists successfully “grew” premature lambs in a “closed ‘amniotic fluid’ circuit that closely reproduces the environment of the womb.”

After spending four weeks in “Biobags,” the lambs showed development similar to that of their in utero peers. One year later, the lambs continued to thrive, with no known complications. Paradoxically, back in April, when researchers first published the results of this promising research, Gizmodo ran a piece raving about the potential. Since then, though, it must have dawned on abortion-rights supporters that the advent of an artificial womb would destroy the “bodily integrity” pretense preached by pro-choice activists. And with other technological advances already offering a window to the womb — such as 5D ultrasounds — the Left, by necessity, has been clinging to the “my body, my choice” charade for some time.

 

But what if “my body” is no longer needed? That should be celebrated, shouldn’t it? Yet it isn’t. The artificial womb presents a peril — not a reprieve — to the pro-choice Left. Here’s how Brown put it in her piece:

The advent of such artificial womb technology highlights how fragile — and dated — much of the law surrounding the right to an abortion really is. . . . Developing technology also tests the rhetoric surrounding the right to choose. A woman’s right to control her own body is a common legal and ethical argument made in favor of abortion. Under that logic, though, the law could simply compel a woman to put her fetus into an external womb, giving her back control of her own body but still forcing her into parenthood.

Let that sink in for a moment: Abortion law is “fragile” and “dated” because, while an artificial womb would give a woman “control of her own body,” it could still force her into “parenthood.” Stripped of its niceties, what Brown wants is a constitutional right to a dead baby.
