Genetic Differences Between Gay and Straight

Here’s more scientific proof that sexual preferences are not something we can choose.

Gay and straight men have different variations of at least two genes that somewhat correlate with their sexual orientation, a new study appears to show, lending credence to the theory that sexual preferences are inherited, not chosen.

Falling For Angels and Gay Racism

Falling For Angels is a new TV show on Here TV that explores gay love in Los Angeles and Asian gay men.

There is much to be said about racist anti-Asian sentiment among gay men — who among us has not seen a Grindr profile bluntly stating, “No fems, no fats, no Asians”? Even though Gino and Kevin live out their racial heritage differently, this is reality every time an app is opened.

Here’s the rest. There’s also a link to another article that goes into more detail about the show. Normally I would watch this, but I probably won’t get to see this one for a while. I don’t like paying extra for Here TV. 

Sarah Paulson On Dating A Much Older Woman

I think it’s wonderful and refreshing to see this in the media. We don’t see things like this often enough about gay people. 

“My life choices are, um, unconventional. I’m with a much older person [Sarah is 42, Holland is 74] and people find that totally fascinating and odd, and, to me, it’s the least interesting thing about me.”

You can read that one, here. Paulson goes into a lot more detail. If you think this age difference is surprising, you probably don’t know much about gay couples, men or women. 

Woman Engaged To Her Chandelier

There’s a fetish called Object Sexuality, or Objectophilia, where a person can actually be sexually attracted to an object, and can also fall in love with an object. The object could be anything, from a vacuum cleaner to a pick up truck. In this case it’s a chandelier. It’s not the first time I’ve heard about it. I once had a publisher ask me to write a short story for an object sexuality anthology, and I have that story lurking around somewhere in my files. 

In any event, 

33-year-old Amanda Liberty claims she fell head over heels in love with the chandelier after seeing it listed on eBay last year. She subsequently purchased it for  £400 ($540).
She calls the chandelier Lumiere and claims it’s a female who is often privy to her cuddles and kisses.
