Report reveals the effects of legalized discrimination on LGBTQ people—and proves its illegality

Politics
Human Rights Watch has done it again, releasing on Monday an invaluable—and deeply troubling—report documenting the effects of so-called religious liberty laws that permit discrimination against LGBTQ people, among others. The researchers and authors behind the publication have made the effects of these laws legible to those who live outside of the states in which they apply, using not just numbers but stories.  Consider the words of Pastor Brandiilyne Mangum-Dear, a lesbian living in Mississippi: “We’re not being melodramatic. You’re being treated with disrespect, as a second-class citizen—not even a citizen, an outsider. And after a while, that begins to tear a person down, to hurt them emotionally and spiritually.

Nemanja Matic has revealed his support for the Video Assistant Referee system caused controversy in Manchester United’s 2-0 win against Huddersfield Town.
 Juan Mata appeared to have doubled Man United’s lead before half-time, but the goal was ruled out after consulting the VAR for around two minutes, with it deemed offside.

A trio of Manchester United players could be ready to face Sevilla in the UEEFA Champions League on Wednesday night, manager Jose Mourinho has revealed. The Portuguese has spoken of a small injury crisis at Man United in recent weeks, after young midfielder Ethan Hamilton was brought into the squad to face Huddersfield Town in Saturday’s 2-0 FA Cup Fifth Round victory due to the number of injuries. However, his options for Wednedsay’s trip to Sevilla could be boosted by three individuals. “I think Rashford, Herrera, Valencia [will be fit],” Mourinho said. “I think they have a chance.” Discussing the possibility of Paul Pogba recovering from illness to make the squad for the game, Mourinho said, “Paul, I don’t know.” The Frenchman has been at the centre of some controversy after

Angelo Ogbonna & West Ham A new interview with Angelo Ogbonna has been uploaded onto the West Ham official website. Many Hammers fans have been singing the praises of Ogbonna this season. Indeed, Ogbonna is one of the frontrunners to be West Ham’s player of the season alongside Marko Arnautovic. David Moyes vs Slaven Bilic Perhaps the most interesting part of Ogbonna’s latest interview came when he discussed the impact David Moyes has had since his arrival. When Moyes succeed Slaven Bilic at the London Stadium, the Irons were starring relegation in the face. West Ham’s fortunes may not have skyrocketed since Moyes’s arrival, yet the Scot has undoubtedly got the team back on the right track. So how has he done it? Ogbonna, without mentioning Bilic by name, appear
