"CORPORATE/ RELIGIOUS AMERICA WANTS CONTROL OF MY BODY AGAIN"

It's 2020 and old white men are still trying to control women's bodies! Meanwhile, have you heard anyone condemn viagra?
Here's the latest edition of Rowdy After Dark on why it's okay if people with uteruses use birth control for sex.
"GOYA CEO SUPPORTS TRUMP" — NOW, TRUMP SUPPORTS GOYA?

So, I think it's safe to say that a lot of us didn't see this one coming. Last week, GOYA Foods CEO shocked the Latinx community after showing his support for Trump. After many toss their Goya stash, Ivanka Trump promoted it on Instagram. Jokes on her though, she violated ethics standards for promoting the product.
THE ARCTIC IS BURNING

Yeah, you read that right. Nobody paid attention when they saw sad commercials with polar bears on melting icebergs and now the Arctic is literally and figuratively on fire. I don't know about you, but I'm concerned. Global warming is real, y'all.
KANYE RAN FOR PRESIDENT

Yo Kanye, I'm really happy for you. Imma let you finish but — never mind you already did.
The rapper announced via Twitter that he was running for president under the Birthday Party platform only to drop out a week later. Why? He couldn't get on the ballot in Florida (as if Florida doesn't have enough problems). Here's more on why you shouldn't cry for a third presidential candidate to come along.
"ICE AS A WHOLE. IF ANY GOV. ORGANIZATION IS BEING DIRECTLY SENT TO HELL, IT'S THEM."

You said it, not me. Even though SCOTUS rescinded the Trump Administration's order to deport international students with all online classes, KIDS ARE STILL IN CAGES.
"PEOPLE STILL DON'T KNOW HOW TO WEAR A MASK"

Kim Karen, there are people who are dying. Put on a damn mask! That means not only putting it on over your mouth but your nose, as well. No, you can't take it off to talk to the lady at the cash register. You may not think you'll contract the virus — which I must emphasize is very real — but the 15,000 positive cases in one day in Florida say otherwise.
WHAT'S TEAM ROWDY SCREAMING ABOUT?
"PRINCESS TIANA WAS A FROG FOR 90% OF HER MOVIE"
Princess Tiana is a top-tier Disney princess and she deserved better. I mean, Aurora spent all of her movie sleeping. Disney could've shown more of Tiana being the beautiful Black hardworking superstar she is.
"My Cat Is Pissing Everywhere"
What'd you do to piss them off?
I mean, I can respect that. I guess?
