Guest Column: My Best Friend’s Dad is a U.S Senator, he’s also secretly gay and paying men for sex

Editors Note: For obvious reasons we cannot reveal the identity of the author of this article given that we were able to verify that they are indeed close with the child of a U.S Senator. Names have been redacted from this guest-article to prevent accidental identification of the Senator involved or the party who revealed this wild story. This column is part of our internal poll we took of our users in which we asked them to share the wildest stories they've experienced throughout the end of 2019 (when the virus took hold) until now. Having grown up in Washington D.C, I have had my fair share of political associations and sidekicks simply for having gone to the same schools as other people. Now 28 I work as a political operative of sorts for the Republican Party of ...

Guest Column: What it’s like being mentally ill during the pandemic, and how I learned to make it work for me

Editors note: This guest column references disabilities; social net programmes, and more. The views expressed in this article have been verified for accuracy in reference to these programs and how they work. The views of the author themselves do not directly reflect those of The Daily News, although, we do sympathize with the disabled community as a whole. ——————- When the pandemic struck I was in the midst of finding out that I as what should’ve been a grown and fairly young man had debilitating mental illnesses that otherwise would soon prevent me from ever having a 9-5 job again. Some of those mental illnesses were brought on by a number of sexual assaults, particularly, one that almost left me for dead and with an unrelenting fear of men. A fear of men that became so st...

The pandemic pushed me to get a Ring doorbell for my apartment, it was the best thing I’ve ever done

Truth is the pandemic has brought on a crime wave that I've never seen in my lifetime. I've lived in various cities and even countries; different neighborhoods and those in between but I have never seen it at times this bad. The onset of the pandemic finally pushed me to secure my home a little better with the help of Citizen (a neighborhood watch like app) and that of a Ring doorbell. I live in SoCal. Myself and my girlfriend live together but often find that all types of stragglers and the like wander through the halls of our complex at all hours of the night. A couple of months ago as home restrictions took place, a man broke into the apartment next door only to use it as means to attempt to spy on a young woman that lived across the breezeway. He was apparently using the window...

Stop lying to yourselves, the Nashville bomber is just that a domestic terrorist like many others before him

Domestic terrorists that often don't get identified or photo'd because well let's keep it frank quite a few reasons. Anthony Quinn Warner as he has been identified by numerous outlets has been pretty much called anything except what he should be: a domestic terrorist. Whether outlets are stopping themselves from identifying him entirely out of respect to prevent copycat attacks is one thing. But this has become all too common. When white men particularly commit major crimes; terror threats, actual terror attacks, they're almost never identified with their rightfully earned new title. One might remember how one Dylan Roof, also a domestic terrorist, was notoriously walked into his arrest and then to Burger King before being taken to jail. You'd be hard pressed to actually ...

Guest Column: I survived homelessness in NYC, but here’s what I want people to know

Editors note: The following column is a guest column from a guest-user who has asked not to be identified because they have since managed to get their life together and do not want the attention this article would otherwise bring. The individual, identified only as John Doe, is 24 and survived homelessness in as they say ('the hellhole that is New York City'.) The views expressed in this article are not endorsed by The Daily News or its editorial writers. If you or someone you know is experiencing homelessness in New York City, please call 3-1-1 for a referral to a crisis centre. I fell homeless when I was all but 21. My boyfriend that I had been with for about 3 years suddenly began cheating on me; turned violent, and abrasive after I had caught him in enough lies that it...

Here’s what I’d like people to understand about pocket watching and why it has to stop

As funny as it is — pocket watching has nothing to do with an actual watch (someone actually asked me that) but everything to do with watching the wallet of someone else. Pocket Watching is simply lingo that means to watch the financial means and spending of another, usually, because someone else wants to control them or doesn’t approve of their spending habits. In some cases there are hints of jealousy involved because one may have more money than the other (and we’re not just talking about common folk v celebrity) this is often common folk v common folk. The Coronavirus pandeic has emboldened that very movement. With the rise of unemployment claims in America; people in need, people looking for the rare delight of self-pleasure these days, social media has been lit up more than ...
