Angry Husband Sues Wife of 10 Years after Discovering She was Born a Man

Can you imagine getting married for a decade to someone who didn’t tell you he/she was born in the opposite gender? That’s quite shocking, of course, but if that happens to you, what would you do?

Forty three-year-old Barney Redfield has filed a divorce and is also suing his ex-wife, 46-year-old Helga Groeschlin of $1,750,000 in damages after she had supposedly pretended to be a woman even if she was born a man.

The two had met in San Francisco several years before they became a couple and tied the knot in 1997 after dating a couple of years.

But Redfield recently filed for divorce on accusations of false pretences against Groeschlin. It was triggered by his coworkers’ teasing when he showed them a photo of his wife last year.

My coworkers started teasing me last year about my wife being a man after I had shown them a picture of her. They kept teasing me for months and that’s when I got suspicious and finally confronted her about this issue,” he told the judge.

I was so convinced she was a woman, I even had a vasectomy weeks after we got married since I already had kids from a previous union and we had decided not to have any more.

In Groeschlin’s defense, however, lawyer Helene Church argued that it was next to impossible for Redfield not to know that Groeschlin wasn’t a woman because she had never undergone gender reconstruction surgery.

Groeschlin uses hormones to grow her chest but without the transformative surgery, she still has her male parts.

When the judge asked him about this, Redfield said, “I just thought she had a very large clitoris. I didn’t want to make her uncomfortable about it, I never asked any questions.

Groeschlin was quite shocked with her husband’s accusations, saying she never tried to hide anything from him. Although the subject of her gender never came up in the past, she never tried to hide her male parts from him. They frequently shower together and he has seen her standing up while peeing but it was never an issue with him until his coworkers began to tease him that his wife is male.

Perhaps Redfield is really just ignorant about the female genitalia, eh? But he actually had a female wife in the past, with whom he had some kids!

He even tried to bring his mother and kids to court but was shocked by their answers.

It was pretty obvious to us all. Helga [Groeschlin] is such a nice person and I always thought my son was gay anyway, so it wasn’t shocking to me,” Redfield’s mother told the court. His kids also said a similar thing.

Poor guy. He really thought he married a woman and was the only one who didn’t know she is actually a man…

Anti-Homeless “Pay-and-Sit” Park Bench with Spikes Receives Mixed Reactions from Netizens




It is a sad reality that in many places, a lot of public benches and sheltered spots are taken by the homeless as their ‘temporary home’. But because this could be ‘unsightly’ to the eyes of many, the local councils often do something to ban the homeless from using these facilities so that the residents can use these with comfort.

But while the move is lauded by some people, especially the locals who benefit from the freed up space, such is also slammed for being inhumane. What’s sad is that many of these places don’t have homeless shelters where these people could rest, leading them to sleep on the ground or some other worse spots.

Other areas impose exorbitant fines for those who sleep on their park benches. While this is less forceful, it still is inhumane considering that these people rarely have enough money to buy themselves food!

To protest this inhumane treatment and to highlight the capitalization of local councils on the spaces that the homeless could have used to rest on, design student Fabian Brunsing created an art installation of a “pay-and-sit” park bench.

This unique bench has multiple metal spikes that stay up and prevent anyone from sitting on the benches unless they insert coins which will give them some precious minutes of comfort on the bench.

If you want to sit down, you have to insert €0.50 ($0.60) into the coin slot. This makes the spikes retract and the bench will be like a regular one. Once the time is nearly up, a buzzer makes a sound to warn you.

You’ve got to get up and go or add more coins. If you won’t do that, your butt (or body if you were lying down as a homeless person might do) would be impaled by the spikes as they spring back in position! Crazy, right?

While this was an art installation, many actually said this would be a good idea because people could now use the park benches instead of these being overrun by the homeless – but does that mean that the homeless aren’t ‘people’?

Thankfully, there were more people who were offended by this bench and hoped no one would actually install these in the local parks for real.

Woman Ends Up Winning New Car Even If She Didn’t Intend to Buy Lottery Tickets




Every day, millions of people around the world buy lottery tickets in hopes of winning it big and turning their life around but one reluctant buyer actually ends of winning a brand new car even if she had not really intended to buy lottery tickets that day.

The lucky lady was not named but it was revealed that she is a Malaysian lady who had just gone to visit some relatives at a grocery store last January 7, somewhere in Malaysia.

This lady was on leave at the time and decided to meet up with her relatives.

At the grocery store, she stopped by a shop that had lottery tickets hanging on the counter. Curious, the lady who works as a clerk pulled on ticket out but in doing so, she accidentally pulled out the whole bunch of tickets.

The ring holding the tickets fell to the floor and was broken, making a mess in the store.

Feeling embarrassed, the lady helped clean up the mess. She, then, bought some lottery tickets as a way of saying ‘sorry’ for what she had done’; although she had not really thought about the tickets and didn’t check them at the store.

Back at home later that day, she recalled the incident and told her family about it. Her mother encouraged her to scratch the cards while her niece joked that if her aunt wins the car, she (the niece) wants the old one.

But the joke turned to reality when one of the scratch cards revealed that the lucky lady did win a car – a brand new Honda HRV 1.8L E. She wasn’t the only one rejoicing over the win as her niece had just gotten herself a free car, even if it was a second hand vehicle.

Boy Dies of Rabies after Playing with Injured Bat His Dad had Saved




One dad has regretted saving an injured bat because it led to the death of his son.

What’s sad is that Ryker Roque, 6, was not immediately taken to the hospital because his parents did not think he was in serious trouble and that they were protecting him because he had a fear of injections.

Henry Roque, the boy’s dad, later recalled how he found the bat that would bring the family this deeply saddening situation.

(I) found a bat, put it in a little bucket, put it on the porch and I had asked my son, ‘don’t touch it under any circumstances’. So, apparently he put his hand in there and touched it and he said it only scratched him, so I frantically googled it real quick and it says to wash his hands with soap, hot water for five minutes,” dad Henry said.

Feeling confident that his googled first aid worked, they didn’t bring Ryker to the hospital like they should have done.

A week later, the boy would complain of feeling headaches and numbness in his hands. This time, dad Henry rushed him to the hospital but all the while thinking that the boy must have hit his head while playing.

While going through the child’s medical history to determine the cause of his symptoms, the medical staff were quite alarmed when Henry mentioned the bat.

I mean, alarms, bells, whistles went off. They went frantically looking for the other doctors to tell them that it was a bat and how severe it was. And then they all came in. We had a conference and they explained to me that it’s almost always lethal,” the shocked dad recalled.

The family quickly set up a GoFundMe account to seek help for Ryker’s medical bills. Sadly, the boy died. Still, the donations continued to pour in for the child as many parents around the world felt the family’s pain and knew that what happened to him was not intentional and that his dad was surely quite devastated that he was partly to blame for the death even if he had not meant for it to happen.
