PHOENIX — A trip to the grocery store. A little league baseball game. A cute baby swinging from a tree. Millions of people have watched strangers do these everyday activities online. Family video blogs are a multimillion-dollar industry that has allowed some parents to quit their jobs and be with their children full time as they document their daily lives and post the footage for anyone to see. But the popularity of the videos, which draw corporate sponsors, has come with a price for some children. An Arizona woman was indicted Tuesday on charges of abusing her kids who had starred in a popular series of YouTube videos, including using pepper spray to punish them if they performed poorly during filming.

The first thing Zachary Sutterfield noticed when he awoke before daybreak in his friends’ apartment was the uncomfortable heat. Vivid colors danced outside the living room window. Orange and blue hues flickered, casting shadows inside. The 20-year-old college student sprang from the couch where he’d been sleeping. He ran to the two bedrooms where his friends, Haley Michele Frizzell and David Angel Ortiz, were asleep. He remembers banging on their doors to wake them. They yanked open the front door of their second-floor apartment and dashed out to an outdoor walkway. “We were surrounded by fire,” Sutterfield said. Frizzell ran one way; Ortiz ran the other. Sutterfield, wearing only pajama pants, was caught in the flames.

By Emily Rasmussen | [email protected] | Long Beach Press-TelegramPUBLISHED: January 15, 2019 at 5:29 pm | UPDATED: January 17, 2019 at 11:05 pm Amber Va has grown accustomed to the stares when walking the halls at Long Beach Poly High School. The 17-year-old senior, who identifies as a transgender woman, said she’s been called nearly every kind of slur over the years. Va said she realized that she was a transgender woman her freshman year, after identifying as a gay male during middle school. “Growing up, you could say I was in the closet,” she said. “Because I was. I always had a feminine personality, I was bullied and harassed for all of that back in middle school. I’ve been called every single thing you can imagine. It was hard. Children can be harsh.” But when Va came to Poly, she saw it as an opportunity to start fresh. It’s gotten better over the years, she said, with the support of her friends and the Long Beach’s vibrant LGBTQ … [Read more...] about Why a Long Beach student is asking the school district to add more gender-neutral restrooms
