Bette Midler’s Racist Tweet; 12-Man Out In Public Gay Sex Scene In Public Restroom Leaves Grocer Stunned; Matthew Shepard Legacy

Bette Midler’s Racist Tweet

I saw this myself last night on Twitter. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing and I had to keep re-reading it to see if it was real. At first I thought it might be a parody account.

Unfortunately, it was Bette Midler.

Awful.

I’m not going to post her tweet here. It still bothers me to see it. It’s the kind of thing that never gets better. But you can read more about it at this link. There are also shots of tweets in reply to her original tweet.

12-Man Out In Public Gay Sex Scene In Public Restroom Leaves Grocer Stunned

I don’t know what to say about this one. A young guy went into a public restroom with his 6 year old nephew and stumbled upon a real life gay public sex scene.

The incident happened in an area called The Mound, an artificial hill in central Edinburgh. The 32-year-old grocer, who was with his six-year-old nephew, walked into the restroom and saw one man “crouched down at another’s groin” while another ten or so guys watched and pleasured themselves.

All I can say is not all gay people do this.

Here’s the link.

Matthew Shepard Legacy

Here’s a story about Matthew Shepard, and what happened to him in 1998. It’s a very thorough article that gets into the entire story. It’s worth re-reading.

The Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act added crimes motivated by the victim’s gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and disability to the federal hate crime law.
