Marco Rubio and Pro-Gay Money; Biggest Douche of the Year; Ten Sexual Orientations

Marco Rubio and Pro-Gay Money

Of course this is just another biased political piece from the gay presses, however, they did use the word “moribund” so I figured I’d link to it anyway.

In short, Paul Singer has a gay son. He was supporting Jeb Bush. Now he’s allegedly giving his money to Marco Rubio.

What Singer’s decision doesn’t do is push the GOP to be more gay friendly. And that’s one of Singer’s main goals. As the father of a gay son, Singer is the force behind the American Unity Fund, a group of fat cats that want Republicans to enter the 21st century on the side of freedom and equality.

Although this reads more like an op-ed piece, and maybe it is I’m really not sure, there are a few interesting things about it.  And when you read things like this keep in mind that Hillary Clinton did NOT support equal rights for gays until the moment suited her.

That’s not biased. That’s a fact.

Biggest Douche of the Year

This is entertaining…if nothing else. It’s a list of people who are being considered for the biggest douche of the year title.

It was a banner year for antigay douche baggery, in large part because the Supreme Court’s ruling on nationwide marriage equality drew them out of dumpsters. The ruling, by a conservative majority court, set the wing nuts into high dudgeon. Religious rightists across the country came out of the woodwork to respond in all sorts of outrageous, and sometimes even unintentionally fascinating, ways. The law may now be settled, but they are definitely still unsettled by it.

Kim Davis is there. I think she’s going to win this one hands down.

Ten Sexual Orientations

There’s been a lot of talk lately on the fringes about various sexual orientations. If you’re like me, most of you haven’t heard much about them and you know very little about them.

Human sexuality is a fickle pickle, and there’s no one-size-fits-all to choose from. While many of us find “gay” or “straight” works just fine to describe our complicated sexual chemistry, others click elsewhere on the spectrum. A recent study found that 49 percent of Brits between the ages of 18-24 identify as something other than “100 percent heterosexual” when asked to plot themselves on Alfred Kinsey’s sexuality scale.

I find it fascinating, especially the asexual orientation. This is on the list, too. Of course it goes without saying asexuals get all my support even though I don’t fully understand it. I’d just like to see a little support from the asexuals coming my way for a change. I watched a Youtube video recently that took place at some small book conference where asexuals gathered and spoke about sex in books. It was very, VERY disheartening to hear them bash (and laugh) at sex in books and the people who write sex in books. I felt discriminated against as an erotic romance author, and I would be the first one to support them.

If any other group of writers had been caught on video doing the same thing to asexuals they would have been blasted all over social media for it. Tolerance goes boths ways…even if you are asexual.

Wil Wheaton and HuffPost; "Heteroflexible" Boy George Sleeping With Prince?

Wil Wheaton and HuffPost

To be honest I’m not totally sure who Wil Wheaton is but he has a lot of followers on Twitter and he wrote an eloquent blog post about writers not getting paid for content contributed to HuffPost…and publications like them. HuffPost isn’t the only one. These publications claim you’ll get “exposure” in exchange for your written works.

I absolutely agree with everything in Wheaton’s post, and I think I’ve even posted about this topic a while back.

I’m not talking about sharing a blog post or something you’ve written for smaller web sites or personal bloggers. If your good author friend has a small blog and you decide to write a blog post for them without getting paid I think that’s excellent. That’s called support. My blog is not for profit and I’ve had guest posts here (but not often) and I didn’t pay the authors either. I’ve also contributed to small blogs for free and I have no regrets.

But I think there’s a huge difference between contributing your written content for free to a small not for profit blogger as opposed to any huge multi-million dollar publication that can afford to pay you.

I’m not copying and pasting Wheaton’s content, but you can read the entire post here. The main point for me is that writers deserve to get paid for their hard work and their contributions. If you choose to do otherwise, that’s up to you.

“Heteroflexible”

It seems as if there’s a new PC term almost daily for yet another group that’s a little different. This time it’s “heteroflexible.” In my own lame attempt to define it, I think it’s about a straight guy with a girlfriend who wants to bring other men into their bedroom for sex…once in a while and only when he’s in the mood. But please don’t quote me on that. I know and understand as much about this as I do asexuals. Which is nothing at all.

This happened after he explained himself to the girlfriend…

She said that she was sorry that her reaction was a little harsh. She explained that she has zero problem with gays/bisexuals but that when it’s with her own partner it feels different. She agreed maybe it is close-minded but she said it’s an instinctive reaction. She said she is honestly not 100% comfortable with the idea, but that realistically it isn’t that big of a deal. She said she doesn’t truly understand the whole “it’s more about dick than being attracted to men” thing, but that she understands human sexuality is complex and believes me.

I don’t even know how to comment on this one. You can read the rest here. I do know for certain that as a gay man I wouldn’t be going near their bedroom any time soon.  And I have zero problems with women/straights but it’s just not something that turns me on.

You’ll want to read the comments, trust me.

Boy George Sleeping With Prince? 

This one is just too easy. The jokes could write themselves.  

During the taping of some TV reality show, Boy George claimed he slept with Prince.

George boasted, “I have duetted with some of the greatest soul singers in history including Luther Vandross and Smokey Robinson,” prompting Paloma Faith to come back with, “Well OK, if we’re throwing big soul names out there I’ve performed with Prince.”

“Forget that, darling,” George quickly retorted. “I’ve slept with Prince.”

As it turns out, this is all clickbait. Boy George was joking around and talking about a poster of Prince in his bedroom. He didn’t actually sleep with Prince in a literal sense. So you can all take that proverbial sigh of relief now…especially Prince.

I could ask why do people do these things, but then I could also ask why do people watch reality TV shows. 

The rest is here.
