Can Ted Cruz Run For President? Her Husband Hooked Up With a Dude; Forced To Dress Up In Drag In Cranston Rhode Island

Can Ted Cruz Run For President?

They pass the term “birther” around these days as if it should be associated with shame and fanaticism, however, this isn’t the first time the Natural Born Citizen issue has come up and I think it’s time we put an end to it once and for all so it doesn’t ever come up again.

Just what is the law and what defines a “Natural Born Citizen?” Ted Cruz was born in Canada, and not on a military base and not in an American Embassy…as far as I know.

Republican presidential contender Ted Cruz should be disqualified from the race because he isn’t a “natural-born citizen,” a fellow Texan claims in a “birther” challenge filed against the senator in a U.S. court.

The suit seeks a court definition of the term to clarify whether Cruz — who was born in Canada to an American mother — can or can’t serve if elected.

“This 229-year question has never been pled, presented to or finally decided by or resolved by the U.S. Supreme Court,” Houston attorney Newton B. Schwartz Sr. said in his 28-page complaint. “Only the U.S. Supreme Court can finally decide, determine judicially and settle this issue now.”

Even though I’m a gay American and I would be denied marriage equality if Ted Cruz had his way, I was born in Newark, NJ, on American soil, to American citizens. My family dates back to 18th century America. I have the records to prove it. I’m not being smug about that, but I can state that I am, indeed, a natural born citizen. Cruz can’t do that. Cruz was born on Canadian soil, not American soil. And the issue is taking up time and a lot of energy. I think it’s time we heard a ruling on this issue once and for all.

Her Husband Hooked Up With a Dude

Here’s a story about a woman who doesn’t think people can be bisexual, and when she found out her husband had sex with a guy in college before he met her, and that he is bisexual, she freaked.

 “The next day, my husband told me that he is bisexual,” the woman says. “He said he’d had a relationship with another man in college before he met me. But he reassured me that I had nothing to worry about because he loves me and has no desire to be with anyone else of either sex.”

You can read the rest here.  This one is really bothering her. I’ve seen this before. There are some straight women out there who just cannot handle the thought of men being with men, let alone knowing their husbands were once with men. I’ve had them literally sneer at me sometimes. And God forbid you flirt with their husbands.

Forced To Dress Up In Drag In Cranston Rhode Island

This is a peculiar story. The city of Cranston Rhode Island’s director of senior services and executive director of Cranston’s Senior Enrichment Center held a press conference in January and she wanted a female senior citizen standing behind her while she spoke. Staged. Evidently, this director couldn’t find a senior woman, so she forced a man to dress up in drag and pretend to be a senior woman.

For whatever reason, Stenhouse really, really wanted an elderly woman to appear in the background during the photo op. But rather than going through the trouble of asking an actual old lady to appear with her, she instead coerced a middle-aged man into donning a wig, earrings, lipstick, blush and a dress then slapping on a name tag that said “Cranston Senior Home Resident” and awkwardly standing behind her while she spoke to the cameras.

Here’s the rest, and oh, there’s and adorable photo of him. 

When everyone found out, which of course they did, the director resigned and has since gone into “hiding.” I don’t know what hiding means. Maybe she thinks someone will recognize her if she leaves Rhode Island?!?

Gay For You Big Brother 16; Bisexual R.J. Aguiar; 17 Gays Playing Straight; The Way We Almost Were by Ryan Field

Gay For You Big Brother 16

Every summer I post about the fact that I’ve been a huge fan of the TV show (and the game), Big Brother, and this year I saw something different happen on the most recent episode that I never expected to see…anywhere. There are two good looking male contestants getting to know each other. Zach Rance claims he’s straight. And Frankie Grande is gay. They’ve formed a friendship that not only shows them bonding, but hugging, laying in bed together, and fondling each other in a way that’s rarely seen with straight men and gay men.

 Zach, the straight one, said softly to his gay friend: ‘Frankie, can you just like caress me.’

They then began to spoon.

Grande, the brother of singer Ariana Grande, and Rance are the season’s first big ‘showmance’ and have given themselves the moniker of ‘Zrankie.’

‘I’m not gay,’ Rance tells viewers. ‘But the bond Frankie and I have is so genuine and sincere that I truly feel that he is my boyfriend.’

I have always said…even in my books…the relationships and friendships between gay and straight men are often highly underestimated. I made this very clear in my m/m romance The Way We Almost Were. I have a hot straight friend, too. We don’t spoon and caress each other. But we really do connect in ways I often can’t connect with other gay men. It’s easier.

It should be interesting to see how this relationship ends up with Rance and Grande. On Big Brother no one is safe and the central theme of the game is all about how many lies you can tell and who you can stab in the back the most. It’s a game, first and foremost.

Bisexual R.J. Aguiar

This is interesting for several reasons. One, it’s about a bisexual man and we don’t often hear much about them. And two, because R.J. Aguiar is another rising you tube star and they keep popping up more and more lately. Three, he’s adorable. Four, he’s tired of being labeled gay.

“Yes, I’m a bisexual male,” R.J. Aguiar says in a video published Monday. The 25-year-old is currently engaged to Will Shepherd, his fellow YouTuber and cofounder of the brand Not Adam and Steve. That relationship, combined with the couple’s online visibiliy, has led to a seemingly endless stream of questions about the validity of Aguiar’s orientation, he says.

I don’t post about this often, but I have mentioned the issues bisexual men face all the time. I personally don’t think it’s fair. You can try to explain bisexuality until you’re head is hanging sideways and most people still don’t get it.

There’s more here. There’s a video where Aguiar is trying to “set the record” straight…at least that’s what he’s hoping to do but I’m afraid it might fall on deaf ears with some.

17 Gays Playing Straight

I’ll admit that I’m often critical about the difficulties gay actors have getting straight roles in Hollywood, and I think that’s partly because it’s so hard for an openly gay author to cross into the mainstream with fiction. It’s like starting all over again and anything you’ve pubbed previously doesn’t count anymore. But I digress. Here’s a list of 17 gay actors who do play straight roles with success.

Here’s one:

10. Jonathan Bennett

This sexy actor is best known for his role as heartthrob Aaron Samuel in the iconic teen film “Mean Girls”. Sorry to say ladies but this guy just is not that interested in you. He is openly gay and has had a rumoured relationship with actor Matt Dallas.

Maybe I’m being a little too picky here, but I find the list accurate and yet slightly disappointing in some respects. If, and I really mean if without any insinuations, Tom Cruise were to hypothetically come out of the closet I have to wonder if he would ever get a leading straight role in the big feature film again. We’re making progress thanks to the 17 actors listed here, but I still think we have a long way to go.

The Way We Almost Were
by Ryan Field

Amazon Review (I tend to stay away from reviews because I think they are for readers and not for authors, and this is the very first time I’ve ever seen this one.)

Sometimes I read a book I like, I love or I’m passionate about. And sometimes a book just lets me speechless, so happy and satisfied, and fulfilled, that I loose my words. This book by Ryan Field is one of them. I don’t know what to say about the book if not that it is AMAZING. I read “A christmas Carl” by the same author and I loved it. But this book, “The way we almost were” is by far the best of Ryan Field’s books. Thi is a book about two men who met in college, and the love they have shared for each other over the years. It is also a book about the importance of living one’s life honestly and to the full.
