When you're Dolly Parton, you can say pretty much anything you want, whether it's commenting on her husband's desire for a threesome with Jennifer Anniston, or saying that, if born male, she would have totally been a drag queen.


During an ABC News interview, Dolly was asked:

"Is it true that you once said that it's a good thing you were born a girl, otherwise you would have been a drag queen?"

To which Parton responded:

"Yes, it is true. Because I'm so over-exaggerated and I have so many fans in the gay community, and the drag queens."

In an interview with Jennifer Aniston, star of the upcoming Netflix movie Dumplin', feauring Parton's music, Dolly also said:

"I've always had these drag queens dress like me. And I even lost a Dolly Parton lookalike contest."

Dolly actually told the story of losing the Dolly Parton lookalike contest to ABC in 2012:

"They had a bunch of Chers and Dollys that year, so I just over-exaggerated—made my beauty mark bigger, the eyes bigger, the hair bigger, everything. All these beautiful drag queens had worked for weeks and months getting their clothes. So I just got in the line and I just walked across, and they just thought I was some little short gay guy… but I got the least applause."




Dumplin' also stars "bisexual actress Cameron Dove and non-binary star Bex Taylor-Klaus," and is now available on the streaming service.

Parton has long been an advocate for LGBTQ rights, commenting in 2016:

"I think everybody should be treated with respect. I don't judge people and I try not to get too caught up in the controversy of things. I hope that everybody gets a chance to be who and what they are."




Ahead of Australia's vote to legalize gay marriage, Parton also spoke out in favor of LGBTQ equality:

"love is love and we have no control over that… I think people should be allowed to [marry]."


If you're a Dolly Parton fan (and we know you are), be sure to catch Dumplin' on Netflix, for which her song "Girl in the Movies" has already been nominated for a Best Original Song Golden Globe!

As if being a mom isn't hard enough, why does society want to heap on more stress. Women who can breastfeed need to be able to breastfeed. They need to do it whenever and wherever.

This has been a contentious, dramatic issue for generations. Some people just can't handle a boob out in public. A boob that is nourishing a child, I might add. When you're hungry, you don't want to wait, so why should a mom, make her baby wait until a more "appropriate" time?

God grow up.

Redditor u/Brace4Landing wanted to chat about what women have to do what they do, by asking:

What are your thoughts about women breastfeeding openly in restaurants?

Our society has a lot of strange ideas about masculinity. In fact, we have such a string of contradicting and misleading pieces of information on how a man "should" act that it has created a very emotionally stunted pool of men in the United States.

And it's usually traits that differ from this path of "most masculine" that, ironically, make us appealing to potential mates. When people look for a partner, they usually look for some preliminary signs of who that person is, and these are some of the traits that most stuck out upon first impression.

Generations are sometimes a little confusing. What makes up a generation? Is it their ages or year they were born? Is it what was happening politically during the formative years? Is it the economic landscape that either afforded or denied certain life expectations? Maybe it's the technology that they had access to.

According to the Pew Research Center, it's all of these things and more. All of these factors can influence a generations understanding of the world and ultimately their thoughts as the move through it.

Depending on what generation you're from, you might have seen the drastic shift from records to CDs to Spotify, from payphones and landlines to cellphones.

Marked by technology and pop culture references, the older generations might actually look to Gen Z, the iGen, with pitty for never truly understanding the struggle of walking to school up hill both ways.

What are the struggles of the past that young people today really won't understand unless they were there to experience it? We went to Ask Reddit to find out.
