Christian Wilkins says Everyone is non-binary after slamming critics who mocked his dressing style.

Christian Wilkins has presented his original perspective on the idea of gender. The 27-year-old socialite, who is known for challenging gender stereotypes by donning clothes on the red carpet, expressed his viewpoint last month in an interview with The Star Observer.

When asked on whether he identifies as non-binary, Christian simply replied: ‘I would probably identify all of us as non-binary to be completely honest.’ 

One who does not exclusively identify as a male or a woman is referred to as non-binary.

Christian, a gay man who uses the pronouns he/him, declined to elaborate on his statement, but it is understood that he was referring to the idea that gender is a spectrum rather than a binary.

The blonde also stressed the value of accepting your uniqueness and letting go of your detractors.

‘In this world, there’s only one person that you can count on, and that’s yourself, and if wearing a little pink dress, wearing something sparkly, or wearing pants, or whatever, makes you happy, you should do it because your happiness is actually really what matters in this world,’ he said. 

It comes after the Filthy Rich and Homeless actor defended himself against those who object to him wearing dresses in previous weeks.

‘If you met me and attacked my personality, that would upset me, but if you think I’m wrong for wearing a dress because I have a doodle, you’re an idiot,’ Christian, who is the son of entertainment reporter Richard Wilkins, said earlier this month. 

‘Not only do I think it’s homophobic, but it’s misogynistic. It’s this notion of, “I’m a man and I’m dressing like a woman, and therefore that makes me less.”‘

‘That’s a disgusting notion. It’s 2022, whatever’ he added.

Christian said he feels beautiful in dresses and has been donning them since he was around 10 years old.

‘There’s nothing more beautiful in the world than someone who feels beautiful in an outfit. It just radiates through you,’ he explained.

Monkeys Grab Girl Through The Bars After She Repeatedly Hit Their Enclosure left people shocked.

A group of spider monkeys in a zoo exacted revenge on a young woman when they grabbed her by the hair because she kept banging their enclosure. The girl was captured on camera swinging towards the chain link fence enclosing the spider monkey enclosure while holding her phone in the other hand.

The girl is seen getting near enough to the enclosure fence when the video, which was released to TikTok and quickly went viral, shows a monkey reaching through to grab her by her hair.

Before other people can rescue the girl and frighten the animal away by waving towels at it, the monkey starts yelping and shrieking.

Fortunately, the girl didn’t seem too hurt after she was set free. However, things didn’t finish there because a few seconds later, the girl went straight by the monkeys in their cage again and got too near for them to re-grab her.

A girl was joking around at a Mexican zoo when a spider monkey grabbed her by the hair for nearly 13 seconds before a boy pulled her away. The footage was shared on TikTok last Saturday and had been viewed more than 8.1 million times as of Friday

This time, two monkeys join up to grab her hair, but the girl is able to rapidly free herself by pulling to freedom.

Many have questioned why she even went back for a second after being so near to the monkey enclosure in the video, which has received more than eight million views.

Many people agreed with the statement “sorry but she began it” made by one user.

Others questioned why the girl’s immediate surroundings didn’t intervene sooner because after she is first kidnapped, everyone just stands about and laughs for a short while.

Someone said ‘everyone laughing while she gets her wig snatched’, and another commented, ‘they just sitting back letting it happen do something’.

More comments expressed their belief that the girl — and indeed everyone — would learn from this experience that disturbing animals in their habitat is never a good thing.

Although they appear to be little and cuddly, spider monkeys are wild animals that, if kept in captivity, may develop the habit of attempting to attack humans.

In general, it’s a good idea to remember the phrase “look, don’t touch” when it comes to zoo animals.

Despite her claims to the contrary, spider monkey expert Dr. Victoria Milne cautioned that approaching too closely and trespassing into the animals’ enclosures could be was “very disruptive.”

The Rugby Football Union recommends a ban on transgender women in female rugby

The Rugby Football Union has suggested that transgender women not be allowed to play female rugby. Players whose sex was “designated male at birth” should not be permitted to compete in the women’s division, according to the regulating organization.

The Rugby Football Union has recommended a ban on transgender women playing in women's matches

Following World Rugby’s position, the suggestions were made in response to the recent exclusion of “male-to-female (transwomen) players” from the women’s international rugby league.

On July 29, the RFU will vote on it.

The decision has come following a two-year review (pictured RFU CEO Bill Sweeney)

If the recommendations are approved by the vote, the governing body will alter its stance before the 2022–23 domestic contact rugby season in England.

The RFU started a two-year assessment of its existing policy in the fall of 2020. This evaluation includes a game-wide poll with over 11,000 replies, the consideration of scientific data, and consultation with other governing organizations of sports.

According to the review, there are physical disparities between persons whose sex was classified as male or female at birth and those whose sex was assigned as female.

The policy beforehand had seen the RFU allow some transgender women to play women's rugby on a case-by-case basis.

“This science provides the basis of the recommendation that the inclusion of trans people assigned male at birth in female contact rugby cannot be balanced against considerations of safety and fairness,” said a statement by the RFU.

“The recommendation is that until such time as new science is available, a precautionary approach is appropriate to ensure fair competition and safety of all competitors.”

The RFU stated that it has gotten in touch with players who identified as transgender women “to offer its support in continuing to urge them to continue in the sport.”

The body also said players whose sex was recorded as female at birth can play in men's rugby

The world governing organization for swimming, FINA, agreed in June to exclude transgender athletes from taking part in elite women’s events if they had experienced any aspect of male puberty.

A few weeks later, British Triathlon established the first transgender athletes-only “open” division in a British sport.

The RFU's decision aligns the body with World Rugby, who have very similar guidelines

The RFU has suggested that players whose gender was listed as female at birth be permitted to compete in the male division “provided they submit their written consent and a risk assessment is conducted.”

Hero Bystander Killed Gunman 2 Minutes Into Indiana Mall Shooting

Before being shot dead, the gunman used a rifle to kill three individuals and injured another two. He appeared to have spent an hour in a mall restroom getting ready for the attack.

Around six o’clock on Sunday, July 17, a shooting rampage occurred at the Greenwood Park Mall, and numerous people called the police to report an active shooter.

According to CNN, Greenwood Police Chief James Ison disclosed that the shooter was 20-year-old Jonathan Douglas Sapirman, who spent an hour getting ready for the shooting in a lavatory before making an appearance with a revolver.

Three fatalities were confirmed by law authorities. Pedro Pineda, 56, Rosa Mirian Rivera de Pineda, 37, and Victor Gomez, 30, were the victims.

A 12-year-old girl hit by a piece of gunfire and a 22-year-old lady with a serious leg wound were the other two victims.

Elisjsha Dicken, 22, was the bystander who shot the gunman while being armed in accordance with the law. After Sapirman had already shot 24 rounds from his gun, Dicken was able to put an end to him in just two minutes. Dicken then fired shots from his gun ten times.

Ison said, “he engaged the gunman from quite a distance with a handgun – was very proficient in that, very tactically sound, and as he moved to close in on the suspect he was also motioning for people to exit behind him.”

“Many more people would have died last night if not for a responsibly armed citizen that took action very quickly within the first two minutes of the shooting,” Ison added.

Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb tweeted on Monday (July 18) that the state is grateful for the “quick, heroic actions taken by an individual citizen and first responders on Sunday evening in Greenwood, surely preventing further loss of life and injuries.”

“I stand with the community in grieving the loss of lives, and my thoughts are also with the many people impacted by this traumatic incident, including innocent bystanders whose lives are forever changed,” Holcomb continued in a second tweet.

According to Ison, there was no obvious reason for the shooting. According to the gunman’s relatives, there were no indications of his being violent or dangerous before the shooting.

Sapirman, though, had lately received a notice of eviction and had left his job as a warehouse worker in May. The gunman had previous run-ins with the law, including one involving a fight at school, according to the Greenwood Chief Ison.

The 20-year-old had regularly practiced shooting over the previous two years at a range in Greenwood, which is located about 15 miles south of Indianapolis, according to the relatives’ information provided to the police.

Elon Musk’s father has revealed that a company wants his sperm to impregnate ‘high-class’ women

More Elons on the way!!! Several companies have approached the father of the Tesla CEO, Errol Musk, to donate his sperm to high-class Colombian women, just days after he revealed that he had a second secret kid with his own stepdaughter.

In a recent interview with The Sun, the Tesla CEO’s 76-year-old father highlighted that the Hispanic country places a high value on genetic material.

Errol Musk, 76, says he's considering donating sperm to "high-class" women in Colombia, after a company in the country contacted him with a proposal.

“I’ve got a company in Colombia who want me to donate sperm to impregnate high-class Colombian women,” Errol told the UK-based newspaper. “They say, ‘Why to go to Elon when they can go to the actual person who created Elon?’”

The native of South Africa added that although he has not yet been paid for his services, he may be eligible for other benefits if he decides to donate his sperm, which is reportedly in high demand.

Errol said: “They haven’t offered me any money but they have offered me first-class travel and five-star hotel accommodation and all that sort of stuff.”

Musk says his seed is currently coveted by a company in Colombia because it contains the same genius genes that made the world's richest man.

When he was asked by the outlet if he would give his sperm away for free rather than charge for it, Errol responded: “Well, why not?”

He had previously said that he is keen to have more children and is of the opinion that “the only thing we are on Earth for is to reproduce”.

He said: “If I could have another child I would. I can’t see any reason not to. If I had thought about it then Elon or Kimbal wouldn’t exist.”

And it looks that Elon, his son, has embraced the same idea of reproduction.

Errol — who is a wealthy engineer based in South Africa — hasn't been offered payment for the sperm services, but the unnamed company has proposed a variety of other perks if he jerks.

The millionaire has really had 10 children in total, one of them regrettably lost away.

Elon fathered twins with a senior official at one of his firms last year, according to a report published earlier this month by Insider.

The CEO of SpaceX welcomed twins in 2021 with Shivon Zilis, an executive at his artificial intelligence business, Neuralink, according to court documents obtained by the publication.

Errol Musk comes from a long line of adventurers, and was a successful engineer, property developer and political advocate.

According to the source, Zilis and Elon petitioned to change the names of the two kids in April so that they would “have their father’s last name and incorporate their mother’s last name as part of their middle name.”

According to reports, Zilis gave birth in November 2021, therefore the twins arrived just before Elon and his ex-girlfriend Grimes had a baby via surrogate in December.

Erdoğan keeps Putin waiting for 50 seconds in an awkward moment ahead of the Tehran talks

The Russian president received a treatment he typically reserves for other world leaders: he was left standing alone as the camera shutters clicked away. Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia, was left awkwardly waiting to see Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the president of Turkey, in a room in front of a crowd of media.

But the Russian leader was left waiting for a toe-curling 48 seconds until his Turkish counterpart finally appeared

Tuesday’s footage before the meeting shows Putin shifting his weight, making uncomfortable faces, and fidgeting for about a minute before ultimately being received by Erdogan.

It was unfamiliar territory for the Russian leader, who has earned a reputation for purposefully delaying the start of scheduled conversations with international leaders, sometimes for hours. Some others hypothesized that it might have been retaliation for Erdogan waiting so long to enter the conference room at a 2020 meeting in Moscow that he took a seat.

On Tuesday, reporters watched as Putin entered the room with authority, anticipating that Erdoan would soon do the same. Instead, he was left standing while cameras clicked.

The normally stoic Russian leader was spotted shuffling his feet and sucking his cheeks during the 50-second wait while holding his hands in front of him. Finally, with a hint of irritation, Putin let his hands drop by his sides as Erdoan stepped out and the two shook hands

“Those 50 seconds that Erdoğan made Putin wait, looking frazzled in front of cameras say plenty of how much has changed after Ukraine,” Joyce Karam, senior correspondent at Middle Eastern media organization National News, said in a Twitter post.

The discussion, according to Karam, was Erdogan’s “sweet retribution” for Putin leaving the Turkish president waiting for almost two minutes prior to a meeting in 2020. At the time, footage widely disseminated by Russian news agencies showed Erdogan and his entourage were made to wait outside in an antechamber, humiliating them, according to Turkish media.

Erdogan's stunt mirrors an incident in Moscow two years ago where Putin kept him waiting for two minutes, leading some to suggest this was 'payback'

A compromise has been mediated by Erdogan to free up thousands of tons of grain that Russia has been barricading in Ukrainian ports.

According to the 1936 Montreux convention, Turkey, a member of NATO, is specifically responsible for naval traffic entering the Black Sea. It suggests that Russia permits grain ships from Ukraine to depart Odesa via predetermined routes, subject to verification that the ships are not transporting armaments.

Putin, Iranian president Ebrahim Raisi, and Erdogan were in Tehran to agree a new framework for Syria - but the summit was overshadowed by Ukraine

Putin thanked Erdogan for serving as a mediator and noted that some progress had been achieved, but he was less taken aback by his plans to create a buffer zone south of the Turkish-Syrian border.

Erdoğan claims the buffer zone would shield Turkey from attacks by Syrian Kurds and maintains it is “not possible to expect Turkey to sit idle and aloof from this problem”.

Tehran summit marked the first time Putin has met with a NATO leader since Ukraine war, after West made Russian a pariah state over the invasion

In 2003, Putin was 14 minutes late for the Queen, and a year prior, he kept waiting for two hours at a cemetery for the parents of children murdered in an aircraft tragedy. In June 2015, Putin arrived an hour late for his meeting with Pope Francis at the Vatican.

Before a meeting with the Russian president that was supposed to take place in Helsinki in 2018, the US president at the time, Donald Trump, was kept waiting for 45 minutes.

Putin has been forced to deepen ties with Turkey and Iran - until now allies of convenience - after his plan to topple Ukraine's regime backfired

According to Radio Free Europe, Viktor Yanukovych while he was the president of Ukraine once waited four hours before meeting with Putin, while Angela Merkel was kept waiting for four hours and fifteen minutes in 2014.
