Glee’s Mark Salling and Child Porn

I never watched Glee so I don’t know who Mark Salling is, however, this has been making news all week. I’ve seen him but never paid much attention.

Glee actor Mark Salling has been arrested for child pornography, TMZ reports.
The site reports that the LAPD’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force obtained a search warrant for his Sunland home on Tuesday (December 29) and found hundreds of images on the 33-year-old actor’s computer.
The PC Police and Gay Passwords
There is a romance author…not a m/m romance author; this one is mainstream romance…who posts the most PC nonsense on Twitter I have ever seen. She has this demure Cheshire cat Avi, she seems to know EVERYTHING, and she’s usually protected by a bunch of other minion PC officers. If you dare to even joke about anything they go on the attack faster than you can tweet about kittens. 
So this article made me smile. It’s about how “offended” PC straight people get when they see gay passwords that aren’t PC enough.
But the headache persists for one UK woman, who was outraged when she arrived at her elderly mother’s house for Christmas and discovered Virgin Media had set her up with an easier-to-remember, albeit potentially-offensive, password.

“Completely disgusted that my elderly mother has her Virgin wifi installed with THIS as her password?!” the woman tweeted with a photo of the password “gayfkers.”

Seems more profane than offensive to us, but it still might be a bit much for dear old gran.
You can read the rest here. The opinions vary, but many seem to think the reaction was exaggerated. 
I have been through this time and again with the PC police with regard to my own books…and I’M GAY.
Chelsea Manning Throws Shade At Caitlyn Jenner
I have a feeling Chelsea Manning is doing the clickbait thing here…trying to get much needed attention. I could be wrong, but only time will tell. The fact is that Caitlyn Jenner is a hot commodity right now and she gets attention without even trying very hard. 

In a tweet dated December 25, the transgender prisoner went on a tirade about Caitlyn Jenner, writing, “In 2015 @Caitlyn_Jenner ws the grinch who stole (& sold out) the trans movement. All I want 4 Xmas is Universal Trans Lib. #ChristmasEve2015”:

You can read more here about Manning and prison. There’s also a mention of Britt Midler’s nasty tweet about Caitlyn.  I didn’t even know Britt was going after Jenner. She should stick to singing Christmas songs.

Justin Bieber vs Bette Midler…Or the Divine Britt Midler

I think these things are amusing, especially thanks to Twitter. I have to admit I don’t know too much about Justin Bieber, however, I should also admit I have no idea what so many people find entertaining about Bette Midler. I just don’t get the appeal.

Of course the gay presses…because they are gay presses…put a spin on this one and they’re making it look as if Bieber got slammed by Midler when it really was the other way around. After Beiber’s dad tweeted about his son’s penis size, as a joke, as sarcasm, Midler had to open her big mouth and add something serious about his dad’s parenting skills. Because, you know, only Bette Midler can do sarcasm. No one else can.

So, Bieber replied to Midler with this, and he was defending his dad:

“This Britt Meddler,” Bieber mused to Billboard. “I don’t even know who that is, honestly. I wanted to immediately say ‘Who is this lady?’, but then I’m just fueling this negativity. I do feel the photo was an invasion of my privacy. I felt super violated. My dad made light of it, but I don’t think that’s sick and twisted. It was funny. Dads are going to be dads.”

You can read the rest here. Of course Britt Midler responded. 

Say what you will about Bieber but he was defending his dad this time.

Oprah, Gayle, and Chick-Fil-A

This one is even more entertaining than the Beiber/Britt Midler article. Evidently, Oprah and her “best friend” Gayle are supporting Chick-Fil-A and the gay presses are wondering WTF is up with that. Actually, they’re going berserk.

But not everyone is pleased with the Oprah machine throwing its support behind such a vocally antigay company.

“Very disappointed you & the magazine support this awful company,” one person commented on the photo.

I thought better of you than this @gayleking,” another person said.

“How disappointing. A company like Chick Fil A should not be supported,” a third person added.

I have to admit that I’ve never once had Chick-Fil-A. We don’t have them in Bucks County, at least not anywhere near New Hope. I would imagine there are a few between New Hope and New York City I could check out, and one did just open in Manhattan, however, after hearing about how antigay they are I honestly never wanted to go out of my way to support them as a customer.

Evidently, Oprah and her “best friend” Gayle don’t agree.

Activists are calling for a boycott of O Magazine and I’m wondering who still reads magazines in the first place.

More About PrEP

I think the entire concept of PrEP is a good idea because it seems to be helping a lot of gay men. And that’s as far as I want to take it here. I know there’s controversy surrounding it, however, I hear more good things about it than bad. And I hear them on a one to one basis most of the time.

I’ve even incorporated PrEP into my next Rainbow Detective book because it fit so well into the story line with Blair and Proctor.

Here’s a piece about a guy who’s doing PrEP and he’s speaking very candidly about his life.

This guy on PrEP likes to party and he’s not gonna let you slut-shame him. Public Health Solutions has released a pro-PrEP ad and, well, see for yourself.

We’re all about getting the word out, but we can’t believe nobody caught the link between a young, hot gay guy saying he “likes to party” and the link to PnP (i.e. crystal meth) that’s so closely aligned with “partying.”

There’s a video that I think is worth watching if for no other reason than to learn more about PrEP.

I’m  also NOT a fan of slut-shaming…or any other kind of shaming online or in public.
