Aimee Stephens is at the center of the first supreme court case involving the civil rights of transgender people
Growing up in a Southern Baptist family in Fayetteville, North Carolina in the 1960s the biggest problem in Aimee Stephens’ household was
the length of her hair.
On the stand, she said her father did not actually abuse her.
“I couldn’t write anything,” she said. “Like, my family is amazing. I love my family.”
However, she said she wrote up the false allegations against her father anyway. She also claimed that Mack instructed her to make a sex tape,
which she said she provided.
In reports on police killings, district attorneys dredge up negative details about victims and promote racist tropes, adding to families’ pain
One year after police killed
Stephon Clark in his family’s backyard, law enforcement officials launched a different kind of assault on the 22-year-old.
They attacked his reputation and
impugned his character.
Smallville actor Allison Mack tried to dismiss two of the charges against her in the alleged sex cult case by arguing that the Church of Scientology had also been accused of “forced labor” but a court had ruled in its favor.
Prosecutors say Mack was second in command in a master/slave cult run by Keith Raniere that was hidden behind the facade of a self-help organization
called NXIVM (pronounced “nexium”) based in Albany, New York.
