A Sacramento bakery posted a photo of a cake they made with a dress wearing Ken doll to Facebook and before long they were inundated with comments ranging from supportive to angered.

Co-owner of Freeport Bakery, Marlene Goetzeler, who posted the image, said she wasn’t expecting such a strong reaction.

“First, I was shocked, then I was surprised and then I was like, ‘Well, you can’t make everyone happy,'” she said.

Goetzeler said she deleted the negative comments, not wanting “the Facebook page to become a big drama.” She added that most of the feedback has been positive, and that some people have even come into the bakery to voice their support in person. She said she is grateful for that support.

It Only Took Twenty Minutes For Trump To Unleash His Dom Side

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Well, that didn’t take long. Donald Trump decided that the way he proves he looks presidential is to start shouting over the woman in the room (and the African-American moderator). Unfortunately for him, Hillary isn’t a sub. If anything, she’s showing that she’s the dom here by goading Trump. Her line that he’s not paying any taxes [...]

Donald Trump Kicks Off The Debate By Thanking His Dad and The Housing Crisis

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Donald Trump is off to a great start: he acknowledged that he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and that he hoped to profit off the housing crisis.  And God bless Clinton for saying that Trump lives in his own reality. If by reality, you mean make-believe universe, that’s totally accurate.
