Private School “Supports” Student Who Considers Herself As a Cat

Published

According to reports, a juvenile girl is now self-identifying as a cat, and her luxury school in Melbourne encourages her “animal behaviour.”

Meowing at School

The Herald Sun reported that despite being called “phenomenally bright,” the year 8 student did not talk during class time.

According to a parent who spoke to the newspaper, the school permitted the girl’s catlike behaviour as long as it did not disrupt her or the other children.

In a response to the Herald Sun, the school declined to acknowledge the student’s behaviour but stated that its support staff was addressing a number of psychiatric issues.

Students were “presenting with a range of difficulties, from mental health, anxiety, or identity issues,” the school claimed in a statement.

According to the school, “Our approach is always unique to the student, and we will take into account expert advice and the student’s wellness.”

The Herald Sun also reported that a Melbourne psychologist had treated a youngster who, for a while, thought of himself as a dog.

It was reported in March that female students at a prestigious private school in Brisbane were cutting holes into their uniforms for tails because they identified as cats or foxes and were walking on all fours.

A worried parent told the Courier Mail, “When a girl tried to sit at a free desk, another girl shouted at her and stated she was sitting on her tail; there’s a slit in this child’s uniform where the tail reportedly is.”

The parent’s claim was denied by the school.

Furries?

People who identify as animals and frequently dress up in costumes as part of their “fursonas” are known as “furries.”

There have been allegations of students at US schools self-identifying as “furries.”

After a lady made the claim in a school board meeting last month, a Michigan school system was compelled to deny that litter boxes were given to children who identify as “furries” in January.

Michael E. Sharrow, the district superintendent, reacted by calling it “unconscionable” that he had to address the matter in a letter to parents that was also shared on Facebook.

‘Let me be clear in this exchange. There is absolutely no truth to this untrue assertion or charge! Litter boxes have never been in MPS classrooms, according to Sharrow.

Judith Locke, a psychologist in Brisbane, said the advent of the “furry” tendency did not surprise her.

She asserted that after romanticizing animals in their daily lives, in media like movies and television, it was only a matter of time until people started to identify as animals.

See some explanation here:

But accepting people’s choices regarding how they view themselves today presents a serious challenge; it is a contentious topic.

In his 25 years of practice, Australian teenage psychologist Michael Carr-Gregg claimed to have only encountered one client who identified as an animal.

A young boy who identified as a dog served as the client.

Once the stressors in his life were gone, the youngster went back to identifying as a human being, according to Dr. Carr-Gregg.

Three-quarters of people adopting “fursonas,” according to the furry website Furscience, are under the age of 25.

According to the website, “Furries tend to be teens and young adults, however, there are certainly a lot of people in their late 20s and 30s in the fandom, too.”

Some furries are said to be in their 70s and 80s.

Legal Action Over Cardi B’s Marge Simpson Halloween Outfit is Threatened

Published

By

In relation to her Marge Simpson Halloween costume, an Italian artist has threatened Cardi B with legal action.

Halloween and Legalities

On October 31, the rapper known by the stage name “Bodak Yellow,” Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, revealed her Halloween attire in an Instagram post.

In place of her customary green clothing, the Grammy-winning performer is seen in the images as the popular animated character wearing a 1995 Thierry Mugler black dress.

In her Instagram slideshow post, the mother of two also revealed the artwork that served as inspiration for her outfit. The piece of art was produced in 2013 as part of aleXsandro Palombo’s “Marge Simpson Style Icon” series, which was initially featured in Vogue UK.

The mother of two included Mugler in her caption but left Palombo out and untagged.

On Saturday, November 26, Palombo updated a post on Instagram to denounce the rapper and her use of his work.

The artist claimed that Cardi B and her associates “have used my artwork without any consent, degrading its original meaning and only to amplify their image with a clear commercial purpose that has nothing to do with that path of social awareness that has always characterised my works.”

Additionally, he asserted that he had previously written to Cardi B and her collaborators, photographer Jora Frantzis and stylist Kollin Carter, to explain why he hadn’t been contacted for permission to use his artwork.

We wrote to Mrs. Cardi B and her partners to ask why they hadn’t requested our permission to use the artwork and why they hadn’t acknowledged or given credit to the artist, in violation of Meta’s policy on intellectual property rights, he continued. Still no response.

Claudio Volpi, the attorney for Palombo, increased the level of the “appropriation” charges against his client’s creative work.

According to Volpi of Artnet News, “Cardi B has unlawfully hijacked the work of aleXsandro Palombo for purely commercial goals in violation of the most fundamental copyright and Instagram principles, with the accompanying substantial consequences, both of recompense and of dishonor for her public image.”

The attorney stated that after contacting Frantzis, Carter, and the Atlantic Records marketing team, he only heard back from Frantzis, who said she was “glad to add the credits” and wasn’t “known there was an artist behind this artwork.”

All parties concerned, including Atlantic Records chairman Craig Kallman, have received a formal notice, according to Volpi, requiring them to publish a “remedial” post with due credit to the artist within seven days of receiving it.

In the event that this demand is not fulfilled, Volpi threatened legal action, along with a demand for Palombo’s compensation.

Dwayne Johnson Returns to Store He Used to Frequent as a Child a Rights His Wrongs

Published

A long-standing wrong has now been rectified by Dwayne Johnson. The Rock claims to have been thinking about a 7-Eleven for quite some time, and he finally found time in his hectic schedule to stop by.

Ghosts of the Past

The action star described in an Instagram video how he used to frequent the Hawaiian shop daily for over a year in order to shoplift. It was simply a Snickers bar that he was trying to steal during his shoplifting period.

Doing the Right Thing

Before going to the gym, he would stop by the 7-Eleven and snag one delectable chocolate bar every day. Now that he’s making millions of dollars in Hollywood, he thought it would be good to make amends for his transgressions. He acknowledges that, at the time, he was about 14 years old and “broke as hell.”

To everyone’s surprise, he suddenly entered the store and purchased practically every Snickers bar they had. But he wasn’t done just yet, Dwayne Johnson chose to make the purchases for everyone else while he was there. Everyone was so appreciative that a famous movie celebrity was prepared to cover their groceries.

Tons of Fans Express Interest in a Def Jam Revival

Published

on

A popular EA series that blended fighting and hip hop has been inactive for some time. Def Jam: Icon, the company’s last real fighting game, was released in 2007, but fans have been wishing for a revival ever since.

What They Can Do

In order to show EA how much support there is for a new installment on contemporary systems, these same devoted fans have now made the decision to take matters into their own hands and start a petition. It’s been going very well so far.

Growing Strength

Over 8500 people have signed the petition to see a new Def Jam game on the PS5 and Xbox Series X, which was started by YouTube creator RAH GAMING. Many have also left comments expressing how much they would value the series’ return.

Ice-T also joined the Def Jam comeback earlier this year when he requested a Fight for New York revival on Twitter, predicting that it “would be a huge hit all over again.” He played a role in the game too, so knowing that he’d likely be open to developing a new installment if the chance presented itself is pretty reassuring.
