If you’ve ever complained that the trolls junking up online comment sections are a bunch of sadistic psychopaths, you might be onto something. An online survey by a group of Canadian researchers suggests that Internet trolls are more likely than others to show signs of sadism, psychopathy and “Machiavellianism”: a disregard for morality and tendency to manipulate or exploit others.
“It was sadism, however, that had the most robust associations with trolling of any of the personality measures,” says an article by psychologists from the University of Manitoba, University of Winnipeg and University of British Columbia. “In fact, the associations between sadism and … scores were so strong that it might be said that online trolls are prototypical everyday sadists.” Sadism is a tendency to take pleasure in other people’s pain or discomfort.

When Jenna Talackova was disqualified from the Miss Universe Canada for being born male, her story made headlines all over the world. But since successfully fighting the rules to re-enter the competition, the 25-year-old has pushed even farther to pursue a career in modelling and acting.
Her journey to follow through on her ambitions, without being pigeonholed, has been documented in a new E! series that premieres this Sunday: “Brave New Girls”. Talackova discusses the media firestorm than surrounded her in 2012, why she doesn’t want her transgender identity to be seen as a gimmick, and why she’s decided to share her story, on different terms, today.
“I love telling my story to people as long as they approach me in a respectful manner,” she said. ‘I had no role models who were transgender, and I want to be that kind of girl.”

A small group of Muslims in Halifax want to start a unity mosque — a space where openly gay and transgender Muslims can be themselves while they pray and women would be allowed to lead followers in prayer.
However, several imams in Halifax said everyone is welcome in the city’s five mosques regardless of their sexual orientation. They told CBC News they have not heard of or met a gay or transgender Muslim in the city.
“All mosques, everybody is welcome in the mosque regardless of race, colour, gender, whatever,” said Imam Ibrahim Alshanti, of the United Muslims of Halifax. “To open a new mosque specially for these people, maybe it’s not necessary.”
