I’ve always been kind of bothered by that hypermasculine trope where the father has to threaten or be stern with the daughter’s boyfriend, even if it’s joking. Like “don’t hurt my daughter or I’ll ______”
And tbh, it kinda surprises me when people paint Tom in that light because I feel like that’s the last thing he’d tell Adrien.
He’d sooner get down on his knees, thank God, collect his winnings from his wife because he knew Adrien would ask his daughter out this week, give them money to go on a date, and say that they’re not allowed back before 10pm because “I’ve been waiting for this day for years, please go show my daughter a good time, make her happy, it’s all I want.”
Wife and stepson charged with murder of KKK leader Frank Ancona
The wife and stepson of a Ku Klux Klan (KKK) leader who was found shot dead have been arrested and charged with his murder.
The body of Frank Ancona, the self-appointed imperial wizard of a Missouri-based chapter of the KKK, was found on Saturday (11 February) on the banks of the Big River, around 70 miles southwest of St Louis.
According to an autopsy conducted on Sunday, the 51-year-old died as a result of a gunshot wound to the head. Now his wife, Malissa Ann Ancona, 44, and her son, Paul Edward Jinkerson Jr, 24, have been charged with first-degree murder, tampering with physical evidence and abandonment of a corpse in connection with his death.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported on Monday that according to a probable cause statement, Jinkerson shot Frank Ancona as he slept in his bedroom on Thursday before his body was driven to an area near the river and dumped.
According to police, when they searched Ancona’s home, they found “extensive blood evidence” in the master bedroom.
Francois County Sheriff’s Detective Matt Wampler wrote in court documents that Malissa Ann Ancona told police her biological son, Jinkerson, killed Ancona while he was asleep. It was stated that she attempted to destroy blood evidence and altered the crime scene to conceal evidence, and that she was acting in concert with Jinkerson.
A US Forest Service employee found Ancona’s car abandoned on Thursday but he was not reported missing until the following day.
The Park Hills Daily Journal stated that police interviewed Malissa Ann Ancona and her son in their home with “all indications” showing Frank Ancona had been killed.
Malissa Ancona reportedly told investigators that she had last seen Frank early on Wednesday, before he disappeared claiming that he had a call from work that meant he had to drive across the state.
On his website for the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, Frank Ancona is depicted wearing a white hood in front of a burning cross on the website.
“The media will tell you the KKK is dead, gone, irrelevant,” the website reads. “They have tried since the birth of the Klan to downplay the influence and power of the KKK … We cannot allow this. The time has come to awaken from our hypnotic sleep before we and our children wake up to a hell we can never escape from.”
I have so many feelings about 4x01 and Bellarke that I have no words! I am just so happy that my babies are back on screen!
It was everything I was hoping for and so much more. Could Bellake be more obvious?
I mean I am not saying they will FOR SURE get together this season, but you can tell something will happen.
Bellamy starting out strong this season. That sass is back, at the same time he’s a LEADER. “We didn’t survive this long, just for a little radiation to take us out.”
“Thank you. For keeping me alive.” That look on Bellamys face, I was grinning like an idiot.
Clarke not having Bellamy by her side for 3 minutes and Echo has a sword to her throath. Seems about right.
But in come Bellamy when he sees Echo being mean to his wife/co-leader. “LET HER GO!”
…and then sends her back into Bellamys arms.
Clarke and Abby saving Roan!
And then everyone being held prisoner. Yup, seems fair.
Clarke breaking down in front of her mom about L. was so sad. I loved Abbys ‘I know’. Heartbreaking and beautiful.
The most telling moment for me this episode when it comes to Bellarke this season was Bellamy looking over at Clarke and Abby and THAT look. Broke my heart yet again, but it was SO beauiful. It was just this beautiful mix of wanting to comfort her but also heartbreak because HE LOVES HER GODDAMNIT!
Abby and Clarke having a mother/daughter moment at the end there while Kane and Bellamy has a father/son talk. What is not to love?
And Bellamy called Clarke ‘Princess’ again!
This episode was just great on so many levels. I feel my characters are being awesome again and I have every faith in the writers that this will be an amazing season!
Bill Gates says Trump's anti-abortion ‘gag rule’ endangers millions of women and children

Gates, alongside his wife and co-chair Melinda, voiced criticism of the rule in an interview published today in The Guardian.
