Alleged: Twitter Troll Arrested For Causing Seizure; Stomped On His Rainbow Flag; Gay Revenge Porn

Alleged: Twitter Troll Arrested For Causing Seizure

I think this case is going to be interesting to follow, especially if you’re on social media often. I’ve been on Twitter daily since 2009. It’s my preferred social media outlet. The one thing I’ve noticed in all these years, in a general sense, is that what defines a troll is often questionable. In other words, I’ve seen people cry butthurt and call people troll for very flimsy reasons. For not being PC enough, or for “offending” them. For disagreeing with their politics. Thick skin on Twitter is a rarity.

With that said, this case is about an alleged journalist who was so offended by something that happened on Twitter it sparked an epileptic seizure. He obviously pressed charges and the alleged Twitter troll was arrested. The alleged victim, Kurt Eichenwald, appears to be a senior citizen, too.

“What [this person] did with his Twitter message was no different from someone sending a bomb in the mail or sending an envelope filled with Anthrax spores,” Lieberman says. “It wasn’t the content of the communication that was intended to persuade somebody or make them feel badly about themselves; This was an electronic communication that was designed to have a physical effect.”

It’s interesting. I’ll be following this one closely to see the outcome. But right now, as it stands, in a general sense, we all need to proceed with caution on social media. There are many delicate people out there.  

Here’s the rest.

Stomped On His Rainbow Flag

Why anyone would want to do something like this makes me wonder.  I don’t get this mindset, especially when people do this to the US flag. What kind of person does this?

This time it happened with the rainbow flag…

The man, who has not yet been identified, entered the office of Rep. Alan Lowenthal (D-CA). The man told staff members that the rainbow flag is “immoral” and “disgusting,” especially since the rainbow flag was being displayed near that American flag, Lowenthal said.

He then grabbed the flag, threw it on the ground, and repeatedly stepped on it.

There’s more here.

Gay Revenge Porn

This is enough to make you think twice.

It all started when his ex posted one of their x-rated videos on Facebook, then tagged all the victim’s friends and family members, including his mother.

“The phone started going nuts,” the victim, speaking under anonymity, explains. “My friends were calling and asking if I was aware about what was going on. … The worst was when my mother called up and told me she didn’t need to see me having sex.” 

Evidently, you can’t trust anyone.

Here’s the piece in full. You do know that you don’t have to do that. You don’t have to take photos of yourself having sex. It’s not a requirement.

Latest SCOTUS Ruling; 10 Things For GAYS Only; Queen Elizabeth and Grindr

Latest SCOTUS Ruling

As of yesterday, many more gay couples can marry in the US. SCOTUS turned down appeals filed in five states designed to keep marriage bans in place so gay marriage would remain illegal. I think this is it, at least in these states, as far as appeals go. Here’s another explanation, below. It gets confusing because we’re not talking about legalizing gay marriage as much as we are talking about making marriage bans illegal…or unconstitutional.

By rejecting the appeals in these cases, the court left intact lower-court rulings that ruled same-sex marriage bans were unconstitutional.

If you remember, this is the argument I think every single judge used against marriage bans in states like Pennsylvania…they are unconstitutional.

This ruling also leaves states that have marriage bans in place very little choice.

From the SCOTUS blog:

Practically, today SCOTUS recognized a right to SSM. Implausible that later it will undo marriages, absent a big change in Ct’s membership.


In the comment thread to this link it’s mentioned that Colorado’s AG conceded and now there are six states where the marriage ban has been lifted. I read somewhere last night there are even more, so this is all pending.

10 Things For GAYS Only

I think this list of ten things that only gay men understand could be questioned by some, and others/most would agree wholeheartedly. For instance, and this is not on the list, I find one particular book blog has become absolutely insulting in its quest to break down and tear apart gay men in gay fiction as if we were lab rats. They are not gay, and would not be allowed to do this with any other minority, and yet they continue to do it to gay men. It’s called homophobia no matter how you spin it. If I were to mention it and link to this blog I would only be feeding the trolls, so to speak, and I’m not fond of clichés.

In any event, this is listed as number ten on the list of things only gay men understand:

 Everyone know that gay bars are superior to straight bars. The guys are cuter. The music is better. And the drinks are stronger. So we completely understand why straight girls are drawn to them. But, ladies, if you’re reading, let’s just get one thing straight: You’re welcome to hang out in our space, but don’t expect us to fulfill your personal Sex-and-the-City/Will-&-Grace/gay best friend bullshit fantasy. Stay off the tables. Keep the squealing to a minimum. And please, for the love of Jesus, don’t make out with each other in front of us.


This one kills me because it’s something we’ve laughed about with friends:


While bromances between straight dudes and gay guys may be on the rise, sometimes it can still be a little awkward when a straight guy offers a fist bump and says, “What’s up, bro?” A period of uncomfortable silence typically ensues as the gay man wonders what to do next and the straight man realizes he’s just mistaken a gay guy for a heterosexual.


Tony and I sometimes look at each other when straight guys do this and wonder WTF. Sometimes we say it aloud.

You can read the rest here.

Queen Elizabeth and Grindr

This article mentions how hook up site, Grindr, is indirectly causing issues for Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen’s not actually on Grindr herself, and I highly doubt she’s even familiar with the term. However, the Queen is not the only queen living at the royal palace, not by any means.

Well Buckingham Palace police say the situation is out of control. Gay employees living on site at St. James Palace and the Royal Mews have been signing in Grindr dates on the regular to enter their private residences. That means they’re just a hop, skip and a jump away from Her Majesty.


“There are real and serious security concerns at Buckingham Palace about members of staff use of dating apps,” a security source told the Daily Mail.


“The palace police are particularly unhappy about the number of guests of servants staying overnight, especially when they may have only just met.”

Gay Dancing on TV

This is interesting to me because I’m in the middle of working on a book where the topic of country western music comes up. In short, the characters talk about how there have never been any gay songs in any genre (not just country western), especially gay love songs. So my main character decides to parody the most popular country western songs by replacing feminine names and pronouns with masculine. Why not? It’s parody, it’s something gay people can enjoy for a change, and there’s no reason why we shouldn’t have our own music, too. If a song can be titled “When a Man Loves a Woman,” it can also be titled, “When a Man Loves a Man.” I know how hard Steve Grand has worked to raise money and promote his brand of gay country music. But not one big record company as far as I know has offered to take him on and fund him.

I do, however, think this will change and we will be listening to more gay music…where gay singers actually sing about loving men, not women…or the same for gay women singing love songs.

In any event, this article discusses a gay dance scene on the TV show, So You Think You Can Dance. It’s allegedly the first gay dance routine in all the years this show has been on the air. Is it the first time a gay guy has danced? I highly doubt that. It’s just the first time two gay men have danced together.

 Although nothing was said about it on the air, Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance on Wednesday (27 August) featured what is believed to be the first romantic same-sex routines in its 11-year history.

You can read the rest here, with images.

Gay Twins Come Out

This article talks about the gay gene and how being gay runs in families. I tend to agree with that. I have a gay brother and at least one gay nephew that I know about as if right now. I have a feeling there are more.

In any event, there is another set of twins making headlines lately, and mainly because they’re gay twins.

The adorable 21-year-old Monastero (fraternal) twins are the latest gay twins to pop on our radar, appearing together in their very first YouTube video to explain how they came out to one another.
 
In it, they say that even though they knew they were gay at age four, they only got around to telling each other this year.
 
If you think that sounds a little unbelievable, think again. I didn’t know my brother was gay until the night I bumped into him in a gay nightclub about a year before I met Tony. We were both in our early twenties. Didn’t have a clue until that night.
 
You can read the rest of the article here, where there are photos of these guys.
 

Gay Bath Houses Going Extinct

I think I’ve mentioned before that I’ve never actually been to a bathhouse, but I’ve always been curious about them. I think they were the most popular a generation before me, back in the 1960’s and 70’s. I’ve always heard stories from older friends about how they used to go listen to Bette Midler singing in the gay bathhouses in New York before her career took off…the same for Barry Manilow. I think there are other entertainers of that generation who also got started in the bigger bathhouses.

But I digress. This article is talking about gay bathhouses becoming extinct. It’s interesting to post this right after a post about two gay men dancing on TV, because it shows how the times are changing. I’m not sure gay bathhouses will ever become completely extinct in our lifetimes, but at one time gay bars and bathhouses were the only places men could go to meet other men like themselves. It wasn’t always just about the sex, at least that’s what I’ve been told anyway.

Giovanni’s Room might be in the clear, but another group of gay institutions is in serious trouble. More and more bathhouses are switching off their “Open 24 Hours” signs and closing their steam room doors for good.

“The acceptance of gays has changed the whole world,” 75-year-old Dennis Holding, who own a small bathhouse Miami told the AP. “It’s taken away the need to sneak into back-alley places … Bathhouses were like dirty bookstores and parks: a venue to meet people. Today, you can go to the supermarket.”

He’s right about that. Last evening Tony and I stopped at the supermarket to pick up a prescription for the dog. I waited up front in the car while he went in. And while I waited there were more gay men coming and going than I could count. How did I know? Trust me, they let me know.

FREE Gay Excerpt: Cage James by Ryan Field

Here’s a free excerpt from Cage James. I’m posting the g-rated parts here on google blogger, but you’ll have to click the link to go to my Word Press blog to finish the excerpt because it’s NSFW. Once again, these excerpts are in raw version, and subject to edits. You can purchase the book here, on Amazon. Or other places where e-books are sold, like Smashwords and allromanceebooks.com

Rick noticed the short black robe and said, “This is where you live?”

Cage stepped aside and said, “Home sweet home, man.  Come in and I’ll show you around.”

Rick stepped into the main hall and looked around slowly.  The floors were black and white marble, the white walls covered with antique paintings in gilded frames, and the chandelier had crystals in some places the size of dessert plates.  It was probably the most formal part of the house, other than the grand ballroom.

Cage tightened the bathrobe and said, “Sorry I didn’t get a chance to get dressed.  I just took a shower and I didn’t want you to wait too long.”  He was starting to get those intense urges he always got around big strong men like Rick.  He walked over to him slowly and ran his fingertips up and down Rick’s bicep.  “Can I get you anything?”

Rick turned and smiled.  “How about the money?”

Cage squeezed his bicep this time and said, “I told you I can give you some tonight, and I’ll get you the rest very soon.  I’m getting married and I’ll have all the money I want then.”

Rick reached out and ran his large hand across a marble top console to his right.  “You’re getting married?”

Cage shrugged.  “I might as well.  Guys like me don’t have that many choices.”  He’d once met a woman who told him he had many options.  He’d been sleeping with her husband on the down low for money and she’d found his address at the time in her husband’s coat pocket. Cage laughed in her face, mentioned her husband had a nice dick, and told her he had as many options as she did.  Last he’d heard, she was still married to the cheating prick and the cheating prick was screwing around with another young guy.

Rick looked at Cage’s legs and said, “Are we alone now?”

Daily Gay Sex, Gay Organ Donors; George Takei’s Crowdfunding; Gay Dad on Robin Williams; Cage James by Ryan Field

Daily Gay Sex

Just when you think you’ve heard it all, along comes something like this. Mischa Badasyan claims he’s about to have gay sex every day for the next year in an attempt to create something artistic. He’s from Berlin but was born in Russia. This, however, is the most interesting/confusing part. He’s planning to find this daily gay sex in public…like supermarkets and highways in order to turn these destinations into places of “human connection.” Like that hasn’t been done before.

By using hook-up apps and sites like GayRomeo, Gaydar, Scruff and Grindr, he claims he wishes to turn ‘non-spaces’ such as supermarkets and motorways into places of human connection by having sex in them.

Frankly, I don’t want to sound glib here, but this isn’t something new. Maybe it’s new to HIM, but I had several friends who once spent an entire year riding up and down the east coast along the 95 corridor having sex in public places like rest stops and supermarkets just for fun, and this was long before there were even apps like Grindr. They did it for fun, in a discreet way, not to publicize it and call it art.

An HIV association is supplying this guy with condoms.

You can read more here, where there’s a photo of him and some of the most entertaining comments I’ve seen in a long time.

Side note: discreet, subtle cruising this way is nothing new. If you want to call it art, fine. But don’t make it sound as if this hasn’t been done before by millions of gay men, with discretion. In fact, there was a time when this sort of hooking up was the ONLY way to meet other gay men…unfortunately. I know more than a few gay men who’ve hooked up in K-Mart, or supermarkets, or at malls, and they didn’t think they were turning them into a places of human connection. They just thought they were getting some.

Gay Organ Donors

This just blew me away when I read it yesterday. Mainly because I’ve always believed in organ donation and I’ve always been an organ donor and I never knew this. But it turns out that a gay teen who died and donated his eye was rejected because he was openly gay.

A Food and Drug Administration policy, which prohibits men who have sex with men from donating tissue, barred Betts from fulfilling one of his final wishes.

They did, however, accept his other organs. Evidently, this has something to do with whether or not a gay man has had sex within the last five years. It’s a dated law that goes back to the early days of AIDS. The boy’s mother couldn’t say whether or not the teen had had sex in the last five years, so I guess they took a chance on his other organs? I’m not really sure, but I did do a search on the general topic and found this piece.

CDC guidelines say “men who have had sex with another man in the preceding 5 years” should be excluded from donation of organs or tissues unless “the risk to the recipient of not performing the transplant is deemed to be greater than the risk of HIV transmission and disease.”

The organ donation policy is like the one for blood donation. The FDA policy, banning man who have had sex with men from being donors, was put in place during the AIDS epidemic of the 1980s. But there’s growing opposition, including from the American Medical Association.

There’s more about that here. According to one comment, all organs now are tested and screened from everyone and the policy is dated and discriminatory.

The reason why they wouldn’t take the gay teen’s eye isn’t totally clear, but has something to do with not taking certain tissue donations. This article put it this way:

Because Moore could not confirm whether her son had been sexually active or not, the donor network had to assume he had been sexually active in the last five years, thereby ineligible to donate tissue or his eyes.

The exclusion is not limited to certain tissue donations. Gay men are also banned for life from donating blood. It’s a regulation that many say needs to be updated.

More here.

The bittersweet ending to all this is that someone did receive the deceased teen’s heart.

Now you see why I rant when James Franco mocks us and exploits us for his own personal gain.

George Takei’s Crowdfunding

For those reading this blog you most likely know that I’ve always been on the fence about crowdfunding. There’s too much room for fraud and I’m not too fond of the honor system.

In this case, it seems legitimate, though. A boy scout who is over 18 is trying to put together a series that talks about the boy scouts in a positive way (I think) and he’s raised $100,000 thanks to a little help from George Takei. George Takei was moved by this because of boy scout anti-gay laws and the fact that this teen who is over 18 is not allowed to be a boy scout anymore.

Simon is making a web series called Camp Abercorn which confronts the BSA’s discriminatory policies by telling authentic stories about scout camping.

He successfully raised the $100,000 needed to produce the series by crowdfunding via IndieGoGo and got a big boost in the final days of the effort from Star Trek icon George Takei.

The concept of this series is wonderful. And maybe this is a wonderful way to use crowdfunding. I just hope we don’t see this kid putting a down payment on a new house as well.

There’s more about George Takei here.

Gay Dad on Robin Williams

Here’s a link to a heartwarming tribute about Robin Williams that was written by a gay dad. So many of us have been gutted by the news of Williams’ death we’ve been searching for ways to process it. I think this is an excellent example, and one of the best tributes I’ve read so far.

My first recollection of Robin Williams as a dad was in The World According to Garp. It was in this first venture in which he depicted the true complexity of modern fatherhood. Garp was a dedicated dad, but he was tragically imperfect. He had failure, guilt and resurrection. His story was strange and atypical, yet the spirit of what many good men, and good fathers felt was true.

Even monumental roles where Williams did not literally play a father still spoke unflinchingly to the behavior of fathering. From Aladdin to Good Will Hunting, Williams embodied the influential fathering figure inspiring a young man to be himself. In Dead Poets Society, he inspired boys whose actual fathers had emotionally abandoned them. William’s character taught them to not only ‘seize the day’ but to look at life from different angles.

Channing Tatum Gay Baiting? Adam Joseph Gay Weatherman; Dan Osborne’s Bulge

Channing Tatum Gay Baiting?

Whether you prefer to call it gay baiting or queer baiting it’s all basically the same thing. It’s when they take two straight guys and put them in homoerotic situations, but never actually follow through with anything gay. The most interesting part about this, for me anyway, is that it actually does boost attention and interest. And when it happens on TV it usually boosts ratings for TV shows that would otherwise tank hugely.

In this link about Channing Tatum and Bear Grylls working together on Grylls’ TV show, Running Wild with Bear Grylls, they make some interesting comments about previous shows.

Bear Grylls is bound to have the highest ratings in primetime if he keeps this up.

The 40-year-old adventure show host made love to America’s television sets two weeks ago when he convinced Zac Efron to remove his shirt before strapping their half-naked bodies together. The pair rappelled down a jagged cliff into a body of water for some of the most homoerotic Sean Cody-esque programming we’ve ever seen.

Sean Cody produces adult all male entertainment films. You can find out more about that with a simple search.

Is this kind of entertainment exploitation? I’m not sure yet because I haven’t seen the show (I will). I know a lot of you are probably thinking I’m talking about something harmless now. Or, I’m being too sensitive. But I also know we’re not supposed to race bait, and I agree with that. And if I were a straight actor nowadays I’d watch out for this kind of trap. It just might stick with you. Oh, it’s funny and amusing to see “that gay shit” and some will be entertained and others will be quietly turned on. But at what expense down the line?

You can read more here.

Adam Joseph Gay Weatherman

When I spotted this story on social media this week I wasn’t going to post about it because I thought it was too localized to the Philadelphia region where I live. But now that I can link to it on a global level I think many will find it interesting. I also think the back story about Adam Joseph as a gay man is mentionable.

First, the Philadelphia local news market is a very family orientated business in the sense that most of us who’ve lived here and grown up here for most of our lives think of local news personalities as friends…or at least comfort zones. You don’t normally see local news personalities coming and going around here. When they get a job at a TV station they usually stick with it for life.

And openly gay weatherman, Adam Joseph, is one of them. He’s been doing the local weather report for an ABC affiliate station for as long as I can recall. Before him, I could tell you who did the weather, too. They really do stick with these jobs for life. In any event, Joseph recently came out in public, with a story about his husband and his newborn baby. For those of us who live in the Philadelphia area and who are gay, this wasn’t a huge surprise. The baby was, but not the gay part. 

Adam Joseph, the hunky meteorologist at 6ABC in Philadelphia, has grown his fan base by tenfold this week after coming out as a partnered gay man and beaming new father in one adorable Facebook post.

Reporting live from the hospital where they first held their newborn baby boy, Joseph says the couple is “ready to spoil him with unconditional love”:
As I said, this was no surprise to people who are gay in the Philadelphia region. You can read more here. I could post links that talk about Joseph being gay prior to his announcement. I’ve seen a few snarky articles. But I won’t because it doesn’t really matter now. I’m glad he came out and I hope he and his family live happily ever after.

In a way, I find this a little bittersweet, especially since so much is changing. We all knew it but wouldn’t say it aloud. I even feel guilty mentioning the earlier forum links and I know intellectually I shouldn’t feel that way. But when you’re raised to believe gay and shame are synonymous it’s a difficult habit to break…even for me.
 

Dan Osborne’s Bulge
In a much lighter story, this link will take you to Dan Osborne’s bulge. Or maybe it’s his VPL…his visible penis line. I’m never sure these days anymore. All I know is there’s a photo of him and his junk is ready to fall out of his pants.
British reality hunk Dan Osborne attended the premiere of The Expendables 3 in London Monday night, where he decided to walk the red carpet with a massive and obvious bulge, an entity large enough to qualify as his +1.
The photos below were shared on Twitter by an Irish fan last night, and then dutifully reported by our friends at Attitude. Next month, Dan will join them as the magazine’s new official fitness guru.
You can read more here, and see what has so many people talking. Maybe there’s a thing called Penis Baiting (smile).

NY Face Slashing

When a young woman heard her friend being called gay slurs she came to her friend’s defense and wound up getting her face slashed by a homeless man who thought he was being followed by “homosexuals.”

Luckily at that moment an off-duty police officer was exiting a nearby subway station and gave chase after Brison who was nabbed five blocks away with the help of on-duty officers.

Brison later told police that he had ‘got the lesbians that were following him.’ The woman was rushed to Bellevue Hospital Center where her wound required over 60 stitches.

She now fears she will be permanently disfigured.

She’ll probably require cosmetic reconstructive surgery. I have a friend who was scared by a dog that way once.

I wish I could be more forgiving and loving with this one, but I hope they lock the asshole up who slashed her face and throw away the key for good.

Target Fights For Marriage

The mega-store, Target, recently joined in the fight to legalize same sex marriage in Wisconsin.

Among other comments, Executive Vice-President, Jodee Kozlak, made this statement:

 ‘At Target, we are committed to creating an environment where team members and guests feel welcome, valued and respected.’

‘You may have heard us talk about our long-standing commitment to inclusivity and diversity. Those aren’t just words.’

I think it’s significant when large corporations start doing this because it leads to more positive feelings, and it validates a lot of the polls that keep saying same sex marriage is getting more approval in the mainstream. It also helps bring more gay people out of the closet and into the mainstream because it creates a comfort zone in a huge public place. I’m sure many of you know what I mean by that. Other’s won’t get it. But a lot of you will.

James Franco Queerbaiting Again?

We knew it would happen. It seems to be inevitable with James Franco, and these subtle forms of queerbaiting. Only this time it’s not Franco who is doing the queerbaiting. This time it sounds as if the press is baiting Franco about being queer in an innocent article that is based on what’s between the lines, not cold hard facts.

I can’t help wondering why this queerbaiting angle always keeps popping up with James Franco, in one form or another. Could it all be just coincidence? Or was the Gawker piece done on purpose to prove a point? We’ll never really know for sure, and it’s futile to try to assume things we don’t know.

In any event, Franco directed actor, Scott Haze, in some new film, Child of God.  Gawker drew a few conclusions and insinuated Franco and Haze are having some kind of creepy closeted relationship…but showing off at the same time because they’re allegedly sharing digs in Brooklyn this summer. It really is all based on speculation, but it’s by no means harmful to anyone…unless, of course, a person thinks there’s something wrong with being called gay. I’m sure a lot of you get where I’m going with that thought. Should it matter one way or the other? Should it require a snarky reply?

The way in which Franco responds to these harmless allegations is priceless. And I say harmless because, you know, Franco’s such a huge fan of the LGBTI community, and he’s been examining all things gay so closely, he would never be insulted if anyone accidentally said he was gay…or drew conclusions without solid facts.

Franco got wind of Gawker’s take and responded on Instagram: ‘GAWKER – always getting the cutting edge, homophobic scoop!!! Go see CHILD OF GOD in theaters and see me direct my live-in boyfriend, SCOTT HAZE!!! Love you SCOTT!!!!’ 

Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think Gawker was acting in a homophobic way. The article was questionable, but not homophobic…to me. Of course that’s still up for debate, and I could be wrong. Homophobia comes in several different flavors, one of which includes exploitation for attention and monetary gain.

You can read more about it here. You’ll see one of those classic photos of James Franco, with dark glasses and that quasi Beat Gen, Kerouac look.

Stay tuned for more James Franco.

Gay Marriage Cases

Now for something more positive and less self-serving, here’s a concise summary of gay marriage cases in appeals court right now.

The Cincinnati-based 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals heard arguments Wednesday on six gay marriage fights from Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky and Tennessee on Wednesday, setting the stage for one ruling. Each case deals with whether statewide gay marriage bans violate the Constitution.

You can read them all here. It’s one of the best links I could find that brings it all together this way.

Release Day: Cage James by Ryan Field

Release Day: Cage James by Ryan Field

I don’t normally do an individual post for a book release, but I’ve had a lot going on this summer and I wanted to make sure this post about Cage James gets out before I forget and start posting about something else.

Cage James is a m/m novella that’s not exactly a romance, but it’s not exactly a thriller either. It’s a little different from what I normally do and it has a few of the quirky aspects that I used to add all the time to short stories I wrote for LGBT presses. For one thing, I think there is a happy ending depending on how you look at it. For another, I think there are a few topics in this story that haven’t been mentioned in other m/m novels. I also get into gay marriage in a very different way this time. It’s not the typical happy courtship promoting assimilation, but it is a reality in real gay life that happens with many men, especially where one is very wealthy and one has nothing at all.

Though I’m not trying to make any political or social statements with this book, I do think the topic of gay hustlers marrying for money is relevant and common in some circles. I also wanted to break the stereotype that this sort of thing only happens with older gay men and younger gay men. The two characters in this story are both around the same age.

In any event, here’s the cover, and the blurb is below. I’ll continue to post links as I get them. It take a while for Amazon to upload.

Blurb:

Hot San Francisco male stripper, Cage James, needs money to pay back loan sharks or he’s in big trouble. He knows he’ll be able to get the money, plus enough to never have to work again in his life, but he has to stall them for a while. His plan is flawless and all he has to do is marry a kinky young gay billionaire legally and find out where he keeps all his cash hidden. But Cage winds up falling in love with one of the big, strong-fisted loan sharks, losing control, and then dealing with a situation he never saw coming.

Sidenote: If anyone’s interested in a complimentary review copy, please contact me here rfieldj@aol.com. I’m going to start giving out ten copies of new releases to people who are willing to review in exchange for a free book. It’s strictly for review and how you review the book is up to you. Of course I hope you love it, but that’s not a requirement in order to get an ARC. The only requirement is that you leave an authentic review somewhere. I’m not picking and choosing either. The ARCs go out to the first ten people who e-mail me about it. Please put “Review Copy: Cage James” in the subject line of the e-mail.

FREE Excerpt; Anti-Gay Homophone Boss; Zachary Quinto on Kids; Australia: Passive Aggressive Homophobia

Anti-Gay Homophone Boss

There’s a guy who worked for a language web site in Utah. He was head of their social media department. Unfortunately, he was recently fired because he wrote something about homophones and the boss thought people might take it the wrong way and think the school was promoting homosexuality. I guess the homo was the confusing part.

Speaking to the Salt Lake City Tribune, Torkildson said after the post went public he was called into the office of the company’s owner Clarke Woodger.

Woodger then told him he was fired.

Torkildson posted the conversation between the two on Facebook, with Woodger saying the social media writer ‘could not be trusted’.

You can read more here. Although I don’t agree with what Woodger did, I have a feeling he was probably right about a lot of people not knowing the meaning of the word homophone. That doesn’t make firing Torkildson right, not by any means. It just shows the kind of world we’re still living in and what “homo” still means to many.

The comments are interesting, too. Evidently, some people think spelling and grammar are more important than homophobia.

Zachary Quinto on Kids

Zachary Quinto is an openly gay actor whom I’ve posted about in the past. This is a discussion I’ve had with Tony many times. Like me, Quinto likes kids but isn’t sure he wants them.

‘I’m going to get in so much trouble for saying this, but I’ve always really wanted to have a kid but now all of my friends have kids and I’ll come in from a trip or hang out with my friends and their kids.

‘I’m thrilled to hang out with them, but by the time they’re ready to go home I’m so ready for them to go home. I’m kind of like, “I need to re-evaluate this. I don’t know.”‘

You can read the rest here. I’m forwarding this one to Tony right now.

Australia: Passive Aggressive Homophobia

Here we go again with passive aggressive homophobia, and it’s not James Franco this time. This time it’s happening in Australia. I know some of you think it’s funny and I’m being too PC, but once again, do this with any other minority and see what happens. It won’t be pretty. In the right context, with the right intent, I do think this sort of thing can be funny. But this isn’t an example of humor. This reality show only thought it would be funny to trick straight men into auditioning for a gay reality show without telling the straight men about it. I remember once going to a gay nightclub when I was very young and from my car I watched a group of frat boys blindfold a guy and try to trick him this way, too. Oh, they thought it was hysterical. It was the first time I experienced disgust and chagrin at the same time.

Proving that people will do just about anything to get that fifteen minutes of “me time” in the spotlight, a real Australian prank show called Balls of Steel auditioned a bunch of straight muscle bros for a fake reality show called Summer of Love and slowly cranked up the gay dial to see how they’d react.

You can watch a video clip here and judge for yourselves. Even worse, the straight guys are praised for being such good sports. Clueless.

Imagine how a gay teenager struggling with his or her own identity is going to feel watching this. Or, a closeted adult who only knows what he or she sees on TV about the LGBTI community, for that matter.

We really need to work on this.

Free Gay Excerpt: Cage James

Here’s an excerpt from my newest release, Cage James. I’m going to be posting about one of the topics in this book very soon…exotic meats. I’m not an advocate of eating exotic meats, but one of the more ridiculous characters in the book is. And in the end he gets the most ironic surprise of HIS life.

I’ll be releasing this one soon. I’ll post more about that as I get updates.

 
Later that same day, Sam climbed into his mother’s fifty-year-old Rolls Royce with Forna and they headed out to Sam’s personal psychic who lived outside the city.  The car was so old and rickety they couldn’t go over forty miles per hour and it took an hour and a half to drive there.  Sam had a standing appointment at seven p.m. once a week, so they didn’t bother to eat dinner together than night.  If there was one thing Sam wouldn’t miss, it was his weekly appointment with this psychic whom he claimed kept him balanced and “earth bound.”

Cage always thought it was more about a privileged, spoiled idiot with too much money to spend.  Forna went along for the ride as Sam’s companion and complained about the old car with each step he took.  Forna was always trying to talk Sam into a new car, but Sam would always reply the same way: “Mother always said there’s no point in being frivolous.  You don’t replace something until it’s not working anymore.”  This is why the harvest gold washer and dryer in the house were over forty years old.

Although Sam asked if Cage wanted to join them that evening, Cage declined and said he preferred to stay home and watch TV alone.  The last thing Cage wanted to do was spend hours in a smelly old car with Forna and that fucking monkey, and then listen to some crack pot psychic fill Sam’s head with all kinds of new age garbage.  The last time Sam went the psychic charged him a thousand dollars for candles that would ward off evil spirits.  But more than that, Cage had received a text message from Rick that afternoon and he wasn’t sure how to reply.  In the text message Rick stated that Jared wanted to know if Cage was still working on getting the money he owed them.  This message from Rick didn’t make Cage wonder.  He knew Jared was the boss and he made Rick do all the dirty work, especially when it came to collecting money.

When Sam and Forna were finally gone, Cage pulled his phone out of his bathrobe pocket and started to text something to Rick.  He stopped mid-sentence and decided to phone him instead.  He’d been thinking about Rick.  There was something about a handsome man with a stocky muscular body and reddish-brown hair that made Cage’s dick come to life before he even realized it.

Cage dialed Rick’s number and the phone rang four times.  On the fifth ring, Rick picked it up and said, “Hello.  Who’s this?”

“It’s me, Cage.  I saw your text this afternoon.  I figured I’d call you back in person.”

“Do you have the money yet?”  Rick asked.

Cage thought fast and said, “I don’t have it all, but I can give you some of it tonight.”  Before Sam took his routine four o’clock afternoon nap earlier that day, he went down to the basement to get two thousand dollars in cash so Cage could adopt a spider monkey.  He asked Cage to wait upstairs in the bedroom, but Cage followed him down to see where he kept the money and snuck back up to the bedroom without Sam noticing him.  He didn’t follow him all the way down to the basement.  That would have been too risky.  He followed him part of the way so he could get a basic idea about where Sam kept all the cash in the house.  Sam had confirmed all the rumors that almost all of his money was cash and he kept it hidden in the house.

“Jared’s not going to be too happy about that,” Rick said.  “I’m not sure what to tell him.”

“You can’t expect me to get it that fast. Why don’t you come over here and I’ll explain it all in more detail,” Cage said.  “I’ll show you that I can get you all the money, and even more.”

Rick hesitated for a moment, and then said, “Where are you?”

Cage gave him the address and made a point of saying, “But you have to come right now.  And don’t bring Jared.  Come alone.”

“I’ll see you in a few minutes,” Rick said.  “Jared’s out of town for a few days, so I’ll be alone.”

After they hung up, Cage went up to the bedroom to shower and change his clothes.  He knew Rick would be there in less than twenty minutes and he didn’t want to waste a moment.  He dried himself off fast and styled his hair.  He decided to leave a little rough stubble on his face and he went right to the closet to choose something to wear.

As he removed a pair of black skinny jeans from the top shelf, the doorbell rang and he stopped and thought for a second.  The doorbell rang again and he tossed the black jeans back on the shelf and reached for the same short silky black robe he’d been wearing all day because it made him feel sexy. The pocket was damp because he’d thrown the raw meat from breakfast away and rinsed the pocket out. By the time the doorbell rang a third time, he was running down the stairs in the front hall.

He rushed to the door and took a few quick breaths.  When he opened it and found Rick standing there in jeans, a tan sport jacket, and a white shirt, he smiled and said, “I’m sorry you had to wait, buddy.  This is a big place. I was upstairs in the bedroom getting ready for you.”

Rick noticed the short black robe and said, “This is where you live?”

Cage stepped aside and said, “Home sweet home, man.  Come in and I’ll show you around.”

Rick stepped into the main hall and looked around slowly.  The floors were black and white marble, the white walls covered with antique paintings in gilded frames, and the chandelier had crystals in some places the size of dessert plates.  It was probably the most formal part of the house, other than the grand ballroom.

Cage tightened the bathrobe and said, “Sorry I didn’t get a chance to get dressed.  I just took a shower and I didn’t want you to wait too long.”  He was starting to get those intense urges he always got around big strong men like Rick.  He walked over to him slowly and ran his fingertips up and down Rick’s bicep.  “Can I get you anything?”

Rick turned and smiled.  “How about the money?”

Cage squeezed his bicep this time and said, “I told you I can give you some tonight, and I’ll get you the rest very soon.  I’m getting married and I’ll have all the money I want then.”

Rick reached out and ran his large hand across a marble top console to his right.  “You’re getting married?”

Cage shrugged.  “I might as well.  Guys like me don’t have that many choices.”  He’d once met a woman who told him he had many options.  He’d been sleeping with her husband on the down low for money and she’d found his address at the time in her husband’s coat pocket. Cage laughed in her face, mentioned her husband had a nice dick, and told her he had as many options as she did.  Last he’d heard, she was still married to the cheating prick and the cheating prick was screwing around with another young guy.

Rick looked at Cage’s legs and said, “Are we alone now?”

“Completely alone.”  He wanted to bite Rick’s arm but didn’t want to appear too eager.

“Interesting,” Rick said, moving closer to him.  “I have a feeling you want to give me more than money tonight.”  He reached down with both hands, lifted Cage’s bathrobe up to his waist slowly, and pulled Cage closer to him.

Cage put his arms around Rick’s shoulders and said, “You’ve got it all wrong, man.  It’s not about what I want to give you.  It’s all about what you’re going to give me right now.”  He caressed the back of Rick’s head with one hand and reached down to grab the bulge between Rick’s legs with the other.  Cage squeezed him and said, “I haven’t been able to stop thinking about you.”

Dog Meat Festival; Power Bottoms; Gay Bachelors People Magazine; Cage James by Ryan Field Free Excerpt

Dog Meat Festival

Please keep in mind this is a cultural piece, and the video with the link is going to disturb you. I couldn’t finish watching it. I thought I could take a lot. But I just couldn’t watch. It’s a piece about a different kind of activism we rarely hear about in the US. It’s animal activism that many are starting to take more seriously in places like Yulin, China, where there’s an annual dog and cat meat festival. I’m posting about it because I have two new releases coming out soon and one, Cage James, deals with a very delusional character who dines on exotic meats. I didn’t use dog meat in my story for obvious reasons, but I found it interesting while doing research that so many exotic meats are perfectly legal in the US. And even those that are not legal can often be purchased for the right price.

As I said, this is cultural and animal activists in China are working to change it:

Dozens of journalists, filmmakers and photographers have come to the city in China’s southeast Guangxi province to document an event that lies at the center of a battle between deeply-ingrained tradition and the encroachment of the modern world. Activists say dogs are part of the daily diet here, with an estimated 10,000 dogs killed for the festival alone.
 
Ask a local when the tradition of eating dog meat began and you’ll likely be met with a dumbfounded expression — it is akin to asking someone when people started eating beef. For many in the city, eating dog meat is a hard habit to break, despite changing attitudes about the treatment of animals in China.
 
You can read more here. And please be advised that video will be disturbing to most westerners. I’ll post more about Cage James and the character who eats exotic meats in my story below.
 
Power Bottoms
 
Once again, here’s another piece I found interesting about sex, erotica, romance, and gay power bottoming. I’ve mentioned this in erotic m/m romance from time to time, but never in detail. I just assume that all readers know what a power bottom is, but I’ve received e-mails from some who aren’t quite sure.
 
I think this is probably one of the easiest and most comprehensive articles I’ve read on the topic, and also with regard to many references made that ring true. It mentions size queens, straight men who enjoy bottoming with their girlfriends, and power and control. What is a power bottom? Here’s how this piece answers it:
 
In gay sexuality terms, a “bottom” is understood to be the male partner who is on the receptive end of anal intercourse and enjoys being penetrated. A “power bottom” could be defined as a bottom who has a strong enthusiasm and drive for engaging in long sessions of anal penetrative sex, whether as an extended single encounter with no interruption of being “topped”, or having the desire and ability to engage in multiple instances of anal sex over a long period of time within a sexual episode. A man who can accommodate penile thrusting for long periods without stopping and shows exuberance, lack of inhibition, and active participation in the sexual encounter are characterized as “power bottoms.” Many tops (the penetrator) who have endurance and enjoy long sessions of anal intercourse commonly complain about bottoms who have to terminate penetration because of discomfort, pain, or exhaustion. Conversely, power bottoms can also be discontented with a top who ejaculates too quickly during sex and halts the sexual encounter before he has been thoroughly satisfied.
 
In some instances I’ve found that power bottoms can take on multiple tops, and their own climax is not usually something they care about. The experience of taking on these top men IS the sexual satisfaction for them. Climax in the traditional sense is not the most important thing and many prefer unreciprocated sex in that respect.
 
You can read more here. It’s a detailed account with some excellent examples. I personally like this one:
 
Gay men love penises of all shapes and sizes and despite the stereotypes about “bigger is better”, many men find these phalluses difficult to accommodate and less pleasurable than an average-to-smaller sized member. Others love the feeling of being “filled” and “stuffed” by an over-sized appendage.
 
And there you are. The next time you find yourself in a discussion about gay men, sex, romance, and bottoming you’ll know most of what you really need to know.
 
Side note: I also think there are “power tops.” Even though we don’t hear the term often I once knew a gay couple where the top in the relationship was so enthusiastic about sex with his partner he would top for hours while the bottom just watched TV. That really is a true story, and I’m sure it’s not unique.
 
Gay Bachelors People Magazine
 
I’m glad this is starting to happen. For a long time it wasn’t even a topic of discussion. But now people are questioning why People Magazine just listed famous eligible bachelors and there isn’t one gay man on the list. Ricky Martin is single. Where’s his name?
 
A wet and sexy Joe Manganiello on the cover of this week’s People Magazine assured that its annual Hollywood’s Hottest Bachelor issue would enjoy huge sales.
 
In addition to three shirtless photos in a four-page spread of the True Blood stars, the issue also features large sexy photos of such hunks as Ryan Gosling, Zac Efron, and Scott Eastwood.
 
All are straight.
 
Well, as far as we know they are all straight. One big reason there aren’t more gay bachelors is because so many famous men are still in the closet.
 
 
Cage James by Ryan Field Free Excerpt
 
As mentioned above, Cage James is an indie book I’ll be releasing at the end of this month. My other new release, Small Town Romance Writer, will be out this week and I’d like to focus on that because it’s 110,000 words and the final book in the bad boy billionaire series. I actually submitted that one a year ago and it’s finally coming out now. I’ve been rethinking release dates and how far apart to separate them.
 
In any event, Cage James is a quirky erotic romantic suspense book that’s set in San Francisco and revolves around a dysfunctional relationship between an opportunistic gay male stripper and a sheltered young millionaire who eats nothing but the most expensive exotic meat money can buy. Here’s a short excerpt from one of the dining experiences in the book that makes one character cringe a little.
 
 
 
As Sam crossed to the other end of the table Forna entered the room pulling a cart.  He set a fresh plate of raw ground beef and a cup of tea in front of Sam and said, “Here you go, Mr.  Sam.”
“I think you should start calling me Mr.  James,” Sam said.  He sent Cage a smile.  “I’m thinking of taking Cage’s last name as my married name once Cage and I are married.”
This was news to Cage.  He hadn’t even thought that far in advance.
Forna made a face.  “I’m going to call you what I’ve been calling you since you were born until you get married.”  He sent Cage a dirty look and pulled the cart to his end of the table.
Sam took a big mouthful of raw meat and swallowed without chewing it completely.  “It’s all up in the air right now, Forna.  There’s no need to get nervous about it.  We still have to work that out.  Cage might take my last name, Woodard.  Or we might even hyphenate both of our names.  So calm yourself, my dear.”
“I’m not nervous about anything,” Forna said, as he set a plate of raw ground beef and a cup of coffee in front of Cage.  He turned back toward the kitchen and spoke in a low mumble.  “It doesn’t matter to me what you call yourself.  I’m only the hired help around here.  You want to marry a man you just met that’s fine with me.  You can call yourself Miss Dee Meanor for all I care.”
Cage glanced down at the raw meat and pressed his palm to his stomach.
Sam swallowed another big forkful of meat and said, “Don’t pay attention to Forna.  Miss Dee Meanor was a drag performer he once knew.  He’ll get used to you, Babydoll.  He’s just not used to sharing me.  It’s only been Forna and me for a long time. I think he gets jealous of you sometimes.”
“I understand,” Cage said, trying to figure out how he would deal with this raw meat in front of him.  Since he’d met Sam and moved into the mansion he’d been introduced to a lot of peculiar foods that came from all over the world.  He didn’t mind the snake meat, or bear testicles because they’d been sautéed in garlic butter.  But he’d never been fond of raw meat, especially when it was this red.
Sam noticed he wasn’t eating.  “Is anything wrong?”
“This is raw.”
“It’s the best raw elephant meat money can buy,” Sam said.  “It’s good for you.”
Elephant meat?”
Sam laughed.  “I’m only joking.  I would never eat elephant.  It’s only bison.  And it really is good for you…like snake meat and bison testicles.  Raw bison testicles are excellent for the blood, and taste wonderful with ranch dressing.”  Sam took another forkful and swallowed.  With a trickle of blood dripping down the side of his face he said, “I love exotic meat.  I have a few huge freezers in the basement devoted to nothing but exotic meats from all over the world.  And, there’s a butcher block down there, too, with a high tech grinder for the best and freshest ground meat.  I pay this one butcher very well to wrap and package the freshest kills as soon as they are delivered.  This meat is actually kind of tame, at least compared to the other meats down there.”
Cage gulped.  He didn’t know there were whole freezers full of that shit.  The thought of eating bison testicles and ranch dressing for the rest of his life made his stomach jump.
“I think this particular bison is very tasty, especially raw.  It’s the only way to eat some exotic meat.”
“Then have mine,” Cage said.  “I not that hungry right now.  I insist.”
As he stood up to carry his plate to the other end of the table, Sam said, “No.  It’s all for you, Babydoll.  Now be a good boy and eat up.”
Cage glanced down at the raw meat and forced a smile.  The monkey glared at him from the buffet table, picked up a gold ceramic pear from a fruit bowl, and hurled it across the room.  Cage looked up just in time and ducked.  The ceramic pear hit the wall and shattered into a million pieces.
Instead of scolding the monkey, Sam turned in his direction and laughed.  “Now you be a good boy, Sweetness.  We’ll have no more of that.  Cage is your new gay daddy now and you be nice to him or no filet mignon for you tonight.”
Cage blinked. The monkey got filet and Cage got raw bison.  Something was seriously wrong with all this.  At least the monkey created a distraction that Cage needed.  While Sam was looking at the monkey and laughing, Cage dumped his entire portion of raw men into the napkin on his lap and shoved it into the bathrobe pocket.
 
 
 
 
 

Gays in Locker Rooms; Grindr’s New Look; Gay TV Review: "Vicious" Cage James by Ryan Field

Gays in Locker Rooms

In the new book I’m working on now that’s part of the Glendora Hill cowboy series, the main character, Kick, is all grown up and he’s working as a web interviewer. In one scene he goes into a cowboy locker room to interview cowboys to get their reaction about having openly gay cowboys nowadays. I though it would be an interesting focus…and love story…because of the professional athletes like Michael Sam who have come out. This article to which I’m linking now talks about what gay men think when they are in lockers rooms. I have a feeling a lot of people might be surprised.

“As men we’re all born with a competitive, masculine drive, and are visual in nature,” said Jos W. one of my gym mates. “It’s not uncommon for guys to cast lingering glances at women, cars, food, you name it. When a guy checks out another guy it’s more often for his own validation that he’s either got work to do on his own body to look as good as the other guy, or to assure himself that he’s rockin’ his body just fine.”

I actually tend to agree with this. I think I’ve mentioned before how each time I’ve ever been to a nude beach I’ve been amazed at how NON-sexual it really is. When you’re nude for longer than ten minutes (for most people) in a locker room or anywhere else the novelty wears off and you actually don’t even realize you’re nude. It’s really not sexual. I think the locker room fantasy for gay men is huge in porn, but it’s only fantasy. When you put a gay man in a locker room with other men in real life he’s going to behave the same way most other men behave.

You can read more here. There are a few more excellent examples that disabuse what a lot of people might think gay men are thinking in locker rooms.

Grindr’s New Look

Grindr is coming out with a brand new look this summer that will be available for android, and a little later for iOS. There will be new updates in the way people view user pics, along with a few other things. (I’m not familiar with Grindr so I’m winging it here.)

“The update is part of Grindr’s continued focus on speed and simplicity when looking to meet guys and this new profile will make it easier than ever,” a Grindr representative said in an email statement to The Huffington Post.

You can read more about it here. There are also a few screengrabs.

As I’ve posted before, be careful who you meet and how you hook up on Grindr. Here are a few previous posts I published about Grindr. Especially if you’re traveling to US cities like Philadelphia or New York and you’re coming from somewhere that doesn’t experience the realities we experience every day in these cities. Trust me, it’s a whole different world. And the nickname “Killadelphia” didn’t happen by accident.

Gay TV: “Vicious”

For some reason this new TV show, Vicious, with mature gay characters has not been getting as much attention as anything Ryan Murphy, and I’m not sure why. It’s probably one of the best, and most accurate, sitcoms I’ve seen in a long time. It’s not only realistic, but the political self-indulgence we usually find in Ryan Murphy television is absent, too. Maybe because it’s British? I always find British sitcoms take comedy and reality to a completely different level than here in the US. And in Vicious you won’t find any of the insufferable politically correct clichés that I think are starting to wear us ALL down.

This is from wiki. I want to get the facts right:

Vicious is a British sitcom shown on ITV. The series stars Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi as Freddie and Stuart, a gay couple who have been together for 49 years but endure a love/hate relationship.[1][2] The show premiered on 29 April 2013[3] and garnered 5.78 million viewers, though it received a mixed response from critics.

The first series ended on 10 June 2013, and was released onto DVD on 20 November 2013.[4][5] On 23 August 2013, it was confirmed that Vicious had been renewed for a second series, to air in 2014.[6]Starting in late June 2014, the show began airing in the United States on various PBS stations.

The show airs here in the US on Sunday nights on PBS at 10:30.

I’ve read a few reviews that I disagree with completely. This one from USA Today by Robert Bianco is a real gem.

The kind of Are You Being Served comedy that Ricky Gervais dismantled so devastatingly in Extras, Vicious is an affront to gay men, the elderly, sitcom lovers and fans of McKellen and Jacobi alike — and proof that some British shows are best left on their side of the ocean.

The above sentence is so absolutely incorrect I don’t even know where to begin. Vicious IS the prefect example of what I’ve always seen with mature gay men. It is the reality the politically correct in the US will shun in order to make gay men as heteronormative as possible.

Just trust me on this: the show is accurate…and more important, it’s fucking funny.

The reviews have been mixed, though. Here’s a much better one that actually gets what the show is about.

On the other hand, others, such as the Mail’s TV reviewer, thought it ‘an instant classic’, while The Times said it was ‘packed with zingers’ and hailed the fact that it ‘remembers the “com” of “sitcom” in a way that many others do not’. 

I guess it’s all a matter of taste in some cases. But as I said, what bothers me the most is I’ve known so many mature gay couples who are literally just like this. In many ways the main characters reminded me of Frank and Marie Barrone from the Raymond Show. And whether you like or it not, this is the way many gay couples who have been together for the long haul spend their final years.

Cage James by Ryan Field

Here’s a preview cover for another upcoming release I’ll have out this summer, Cage James. This one will be launched after my next book in the Bad Boy Billionaire series, Small Town Romance writer. Keep in mind this isn’t the final cover. It still needs some work and I’m still going back and forth with the cover artist. More to come soon.
