Charlize Theron

With the guys, they're not dancers, so, it takes a bit more work. Doing a love scene with guys is different, but I enjoy

Charlize Theron

With Sofia [Boutella], it was easy just because were both dancers and you have to choreograph those scenes quite a bit. Otherwise, they just become silly. There is a technical aspect to it, so with her it was really easy because she thinks like me because we're

Darren Malpas

Though it is clearly a concern that so many people are affected by this type of crime, it is pleasing that previously reluctant victims of sexual offences now have the confidence to report this to us. Tackling all forms of unwanted sexual behaviour on public transport is a priority for British Transport Police and we have worked hard in recent years to send a clear message to victims that they will be taken seriously and we will investigate offences. It is really important that people report any kind of unwanted sexual behaviour to us as soon as

Theresa May

I want all British citizens to enjoy the fullest freedoms and protections. That includes equal marriage – because marriage should be for everyone, regardless of their sexuality. And while that is a matter for the devolved government of Northern Ireland, I will continue to make my position clear – that LGBT+ people in Northern Ireland should have the same rights as people across the rest of the UK. We don't agree with them on their approach to same-sex marriage, and I'm very clear that the Conservative Party in government doesn't agree with the DUP on those issues on LGBT

Gayle Newland

This was very serious sexual offending committed by means of a planned and sustained deceit which has caused significant harm and distress to the

Grace Poore

This is blatant discrimination by two government departments that are undermining the rights to family and housing eligible to heterosexual married

Gordon Brown

This seems to me as probably the biggest national sex abuse scandal. Bigger than what people have alleged about Savile. Bigger than what people have alleged about individual children's homes. Bigger in scale, bigger in geographical spread, and bigger in the length of time that it went on undetected. I'm shocked about the information that I have

Trevor Noah

This is genius when you think about. Every other resistance movement should've done the same thing. You just tie yourself to a popular fad and make it look like it's bigger than it is. But it turns out, fidget spinners aren't the only thing Russia is toying with. I just don't understand why he would do this. If the perception of you is that you're colluding with Russia, just don't have a private conversation with the president of Russia. Like, if there are rumors that you have sex with sheep, even if they are false, just stay away from sheep for a

Kelvin Holdsworth

People sometimes say that support for gay marriage is the biggest change in social attitudes that has ever been measured. People used to disagree with gay relationships quite strongly and now they support them very strongly. All the time as we've been pushing for more and more equality, we've been seeing people becoming more

Kelvin Holdsworth

I think there are lots of straight people who want to get married in churches that are practising equality. I find that the more that I go on about equality for gay folk, the more I get young families coming here because they want their kids to grow up in that kind of

Kelvin Holdsworth

We are glad to be able to welcome them and expect there will be many others who will follow them. I'm a gay man myself and so initially for me it was about coming out and then, having come out, it was about helping the church to come out. The church was always a place that was good for me when I came out. It was a very supportive place and it seemed to me important to get the church to tell the truth that it was accepting about people in same-sex relationships and then gradually members in this congregation started to help in the push for gay

Sergei Y. Filin

I didn't want to buy an existing Maillot ballet. I knew that he would be able to work in dialogue with the Bolshoi's artists, to multiply their talents. Jean-Christophe has a sense of humor. He is also able to show sex, but not in a vulgar

Justine Damond

Hi, I'm, I can hear someone out the back and I'm not sure she's having sex or being raped. I think she just yelled out 'help', but it's difficult; the sound has been going on for a while, but I think, I don't think she's enjoying it. It sounds like sex noises, but it's been going on for a while and I think she tried to say 'help' and it sounds distressed. Hi, I just reported one, but no one's here and was wondering if they got the address

Vanessa Zoltan

It doesn't speak to people's hearts and souls. I get that people get connection and meaning from Soul Cycle, but will [those people] visit you when your mom is dying? I'm scared what we're going to do without the buildings. Some of the best things in the world happen in church basements. That's where you have sex ed classes, and that's where you have kids on their church trip to build houses, and that's where you house the new immigrant, and that's where you register to vote…. I'm terrified if there aren't these designated spaces. They're called sanctuaries for a

Tupac Shakur

For you to be seen with a black man wouldn't in any way jeopardize your career, if anything it would make you seem that much more open and exciting. But for me at least in my previous perception I felt due to my 'image' I would be letting down half of the people who made me what I thought I was. I never meant to hurt you. Please understand my previous position as that of a young man with limited experience with an extremely famous sex

Paul Kelly - Blacks Solicitors

If she suspects she is being paid less than a male colleague for doing 'like work' of an 'equivalent value' she may have an equal pay claim. Firstly she needs to identify an actual comparator of the opposite sex who performs broadly similar work but is paid

Susanne Bartsch

Every time she takes off that dress, people love it. Roaring. Screaming. And I think that's an art. She's the ultimate sex symbol. Move over

Tracy Sampson

Charlize Theron

I enjoy both – yes! Doing a love scene with guys is different, but I enjoy both. I went through the first two surgeries before we started the film, and then I wrapped the movie and had another two surgeries and I still have one

Kevin McCants

Cecile Richards

It was mortifying for his sisters, but it was a great teachable moment about what a condom was and why it was important, and why protection was important. His sisters were a little appalled. But a lot of time, embarrassing moments are teachable

Ellen Kahn - Human Rights Campaign

Christopher Seeger

I've been doing this litigation for a long time, there's always been a certain amount of stuff going on, but I've never seen anything like this by a multiple. There's a sex appeal to representing N.F.L. players, and they are so identifiable, so these companies who are predatory, it is easy for them to be successful. Most of these guys are broke, so they're

Eugene Peterson

To clarify, I affirm a biblical view of marriage: one man to one woman. I affirm a biblical view of everything. I've never performed a same-sex wedding. I've never been asked and, frankly, I hope I never am asked. . When put on the spot by this particular interviewer, I said yes in the moment. But on further reflection and prayer, I would like to retract that. That's not something I would do out of respect to the congregation, the larger church body, and the historic biblical Christian view and teaching on

Candice Jackson

As a survivor of rape myself, I would never seek to diminish anyone's experience. My words in the New York Times poorly characterized the conversations I've had with countless groups of advocates. What I said was flippant, and I am sorry. All sexual harassment and sexual assault must be taken seriously–which has always been my position and will always be the position of this

Fatima Goss Graves

Unfortunately those remarks are now out there, and at the highest levels they need to undo that damage by countering those myths about rape. She has to reject the idea that rape is just regretted sex. She has to reject the idea that most women lie, and she has to say it and say it and say it

Corinne Olympios

I am very happy to be appearing on the Bachelor in Paradise special. I am a victim and have spent the last week trying to make sense of what happened on June 4. Although I have little memory of that night, something bad obviously took place, which I understand is why production on the show has now been suspended and a producer on the show has filed a complaint against the production. I felt victimized by the fact that others were judging me through conflicting and unsubstantiated reports, while I myself had no recollection of the events that

Perry Wasserman

She had been warned not to have an inappropriate relationship with him. He was receiving special education services and she took him off the [school] property twice, and that makes it all the more egregious. He was in her care and custody and she so grossly abused that role. I thought the sentence reflected

Parents were getting it and we became aware that parents had to have less-than-comfortable conversations with their children because this video was going around.

Perry Wasserman

As a young man, this entire ordeal has been extremely confusing for him, just as it would be for any victim that is exposed to sexual activity before they are at a level of maturity.

Anyone but a school teacher would get no jail time. There is a statute that says a teacher is treated differently. They are custodians. They are treated differently. It was the simple fact she was a teacher. This is someone who was locked up to make an example of. For deterrent value. The only reason she was incarcerated was to deter other teachers from even thinking about

Charlize Theron

I just loved it. For so many reasons: My frustration of how that community is represented in cinema, or lack thereof. And also, it made perfect sense. It just suited her. It just felt there was a way through that relationship and the fact that it was a same-sex relationship to show a woman not having to fall in love, which is one of those female tropes. It's a woman; she better fall in love – otherwise, she's a whore!feedback

Helen Mountfield - Ofsted

There's a particular detriment to girls ... if boys and girls in a school which is registered as a mixed-sex school lose the opportunity to work and socialise competently with members of the opposite sex and, as Ofsted says, they do go into the world unprepared for life in modern Britain, where they are expected to be able to work and socialise with members of the opposite sex. This imposes a particular detriment to girls as the group with a minority of power in our

Robert Yang

Decades of male heterosexual hegemony have trained gamers into thinking of 'looking' as a 'free' action, with few consequences or results. I tried to look at some sex games to see how they do this, and they're much worse at embodiment, because it's less about you being there and more you being a director, creating some kind of scene and watching it from

Kyle Hilbert

She is almost certainly not the only person going through this right now. This protective order lasts forever, but even with this happening and us getting a positive result for the family, I will still move forward with legislation that will bar sex offenders from living within a certain distance of their victims. A victim should not have to hire an attorney and go through this legal process and face their assailants in court

Chris McGovern

It has become an industry, people are making a career out of encouraging children to question gender at an age when they need to be left to be children. When teachers raise these issues children can become confused or unhappy and traumatized by it. In a sense we are imposing adult concerns on children. Schools feel under huge pressures to comply with a politically correct agenda. Just a few short years ago, not many could have imagined a high-profile showdown over transgender men and women's access to single-sex bathrooms in North

It is not actually about sex – the sex is very discreet, it is not going to win the bad sex award. It is, I hope, a thriller, it is written as part of the Robert Harris genre. Not as good as that obviously, I am a beginner. It is going to break on the world in a couple of months'

Polly Carmichael

A Canadian child’s health card marked with a U for gender is a step forward for those who do not fit the binary model• Polly Carmichael is director of gender identity services at the Tavistock Clinic. The Canadian health card issued to baby Searyl Atli marked with a U for gender highlights the increased need in society to recognise and accommodate diversity in gender identities and expression. Whether this U stands for unknown, undisclosed or unidentified is not clear. But a binary definition of gender and the assumptions and expectations that go along with this are problematic for those who do not feel they fit into this construct. And that binary model of gender is being challenged, with many young people conceptualising it in terms of a

The obvious direct reason for a patient to seek body contouring surgery is to get rid of a tummy apron and some fat rolls, but when we look a little deeper into why patients are willing to undertake expensive and sometimes risky procedures, some other reasons emerge. Our research shows that the right procedure can improve self-esteem, self-image, sex life, social performance and physical symptoms. That improvement is shown as soon as three months after surgery and can last for years

I reject this concept that it is child trafficking victims versus the tech industry. My question is that if the goal of this litigation is to benefit the victims of sex trafficking, is this really the best way to do this?

It's been very difficult for them to stick their neck out. To come out against someone who is second to God, in some people's minds, has caused all sorts of problems for

The fact that Cardinal Pell was appointed to a very senior post in the Vatican rather than having to face any sanction for his mishandling of abuse cases was a slap in the face to all those he had let down so badly, not only victims but Catholic people who have spent years now hearing assurance from the Catholic Church that it is taking the issue

Some say Pell is being scapegoated. While Pell undeniably is the poster boy for the Australian church's wrongdoing, false allegations are relatively

The fact I'm granting you bail now is absolutely no indication of the sentence that you are likely to receive on 20 July. On the contrary, you must understand now the overwhelming likelihood is that on 20 July you will receive a significant custodial sentence. You should be in no doubt about that at

I would think that the pope would be very concerned to think that one of his cardinals, and someone who holds a high position within the Vatican government structure, is being wanted on criminal charges in Australia. So if the pope was to say, Well look, Cardinal Pell, I'd like you to return to Australia and mount a defence ,' I'm sure Cardinal Pell would probably follow that instruction. ... In the case of someone like Cardinal Pell, the sway that the pope and the church has over him is much greater than the ordinary

Human trafficking is as old as humankind. Regrettably, it's been with us for centuries and centuries. It is our hope that the 21st century will be the last century of human trafficking, and that's what we are all committed to. The North Korean regime receives hundreds of millions of dollars per year from the fruits of forced labor. Responsible nations simply cannot allow this to go on, and we continue to call on any nation that is hosting workers from North Korea in a forced labor arrangement to send those people

During the course of the investigation in relation to Cardinal Pell, there has been a lot of reporting in the media and speculation about the process that has been involved in the investigation and also the charging. I want to be perfectly clear, the process and procedures that are being followed in the charging of Cardinal Pell have been the same that have been applied in a whole range of historical sex offences whenever we investigate

It upholds that no one is above the law, no matter how high their office, qualifications, or standing. As well as the impacts of the abuse itself, countless survivors of child sexual abuse have struggled with the silence and disbelief of society that adults and respected public figures can be perpetrators of the criminal act of sexual abuse of

It's not that surprising. You look at the trajectory of conservative media and it's not been policy-oriented for a long time. It's about whether you get the win or not. There's nothing for Rush Limbaugh to sex up about a bill that's neither repeal nor

He comes up to my belly and says, High-five baby!' and puts his hand up, which is really cute. He came up with it all on his

We tried to balance it out since it's a baby's room and not an 80-year-old woman's room. When my first son was born, I was so terrified of leaving his room. I felt like I was in there a million hours a day. So I wanted this to be really soft and cozy to me, since it appears it will be my jail for the first three

[Max] has been trying to simply walk in and take things. Every time I see him, he's just dragging things from the baby's room into his

The government shouldn’t be able to coerce my client into creating a custom cake for a same-sex

My work as an advocate for the intersex community is incredibly important to me, and I'm unable to do my job because I don't have a passport. The State Department is in effect forcing me to lie about who I am, and I'm not going to do that. No one should be forced to lie about who they are. This is who I am. This is how I was born. Many people are able to get their passports with their biological sex, and I should be allowed to do the same
