5 Things: Mika's Butt Boy, Cariad's Backlash, Gay's Wage Warfare, Britney's White X-Mas, and a #TBT to Some Nude Hollyoaks Lads

Today we’ve got a throwback to some lads behaving badly, another Morning Joe blunder, Britney Spears singing-ish and more.

I understand that Donald Trump doesn’t care. But why doesn’t Mike Pompeo care right now? Are the pathetic deflections that we just heard when he appeared on Fox & Friends — is that a patriot speaking? Or a wannabe dictator’s butt-boy? I’m dead serious, I’m asking: are these the words of a patriot?

“But some bleeders in the UK can’t afford sanitary products, imagine the scandal at the ball!” She then asked people to consider donating to the charity this festive season.

However, she received backlash from anti-trans trolls online, who took issue with her use of the term “bleeders” rather than women.

4. An excise tax on gay sex held up a hearing about the minimum wage hike.

The minimum wage hearing has officially been postponed after a 2002 blog post was unearthed in which Sabia wrote of a “gay sex tax,” that is the idea of taxing and regulating gay sex due to the danger of HIV and other diseases. “In gay sex, we have an activity that is clearly leading to disastrous health consequences. What rational person would engage in this sort of activity? There is only one solution — let’s tax it.”

5. The sheer amount of sexy on this shoot of Hollyoaks hunks is almost too much to bare.

This is from a cheeky photo shoot a gaggle of British soap hunks did for The Sun a few years ago. A worth #TBT if I've ever seen one. And, given how often people die on Hollyoaks, it's a miracle 2/3 are still alive.

And, as a bonus holiday gift: below is one Mr. Parry Glasspool from his Gay Times shoot.
