Gay Hook Up Blizzard Buddies On CL

I hear so much all the time about how there’s too much sex in romance, about book covers with half naked men, and about the joys and benefits of asexuality, and I never say a word. I smile and I listen. But when I see articles like this one, I smile even more.

Washington D.C. is about to get slammed with one of the biggest snow storms in years and gay guys have been posting in the M4M section of Craigslist seeking “Blizzard Buddies” that will help get them through the storm, so to speak.

Here’s one post:

Plowing the plow guy? – m4m
So here’s the deal I’m plowing snow in a neighborhood off of west ox near the silver diner and want to warm up later tonight with a nice guy and let him have some fun with me as for me I’m white I’m twenty three I’m in decent shape and have pics to share upon request hit me up lets have some fun.

And here’s another:

You can read more here where they show a few interesting post titles.

Evidently, these guys aren’t worried about bread, milk, and eggs.

Sam Smith and Whitesplaining

I don’t really like to get into these topics because it seems that whenever someone does there’s some kind of backlash. All I know is there is a lot of anger out there coming in all directions and I don’t see anyone who is actually able to pull things together. And that’s a shame, because that’s what people need now more than ever. It doesn’t have to be this way, not forever.

In any event, Sam Smith made a few comments recently and he wound up explaining himself on social media:

“For the record, I was merely sharing an experience I had in the hope it would draw attention to ridiculous it is to be racist in 2016. This is not about me in any way, it’s about a deep rooted issue we have in our society that should now be extinct.”

“I don’t profess to know or remotely understand what it means to be on the receiving end of racial abuse, but having been bullied my whole life for being gay, what I do know is that it is wrong and completely unacceptable. Here’s to people being allowed to be people.”

I actually think people are tired of racism, and by that I mean ALL racism.

Moisture Wicking Underpants

If you’re like me, you had no idea this actually existed.

It’s 2016, and if you still haven’t discovered the comfort of moisture wicking underwear, we have a New Year’s resolution for you. Moisture wicking underwear is all about the fabric. Cotton and other plush fabrics are so absorbent that they’re slow to dry and can result in some uncomfortable situations. Moisture wicking materials are absorbent too, but they dry more quickly, thanks to science and some innovative underwear tech.

There’s much more here. It’s an advertorial, but it’s actually one of the more interesting I’ve seen lately. And, there are some very excellent photos.

James Bond Can’t Be Gay: Roger Moore; Bernie Sanders on Hillary Clinton and Gay Rights; Gay Activists Call Hillary Clinton Out

James Bond Can’t Be Gay: Roger Moore

According to Roger Moore, James Bond can’t be gay or a woman because that’s not the way Ian Fleming wrote the character.

“I have heard people talk about how there should be a lady Bond or a gay Bond, but they wouldn’t be Bond for the simple reason that wasn’t what Ian Fleming wrote,” said Moore, who played Bond in seven films.

“It is not about being homophobic or, for that matter, racist – it is simply about being true to the character,” he told the Mail. 

I think I feel a gay James Bond movie tie-in parody coming on. Why not? I don’t care what Roger Moore thinks. Instead of Bond getting the girl he would get the guy…or guys.

I would title mine something like “James Bend.” It wouldn’t be fanfic either. It would be strictly parody…for those of you who don’t understand what I’m talking about.

This statement by Roger Moore is one reason why I wrote a few gay parodies of straight movies (An Officer and HIS Gentleman). I took a lot of slams for that and in some cases still do, but I have no regrets whatsoever.

Bernie Sanders on Hillary Clinton and Gay Rights

When I post this way I’m not trying to be political and I never/rarely add my own opinions. However, I have heard this very same discussion on Hillary Clinton and gay rights at several small parties over the past six months and I thought it was newsworthy. Most gay people I know remember Hillary and how she stood on gay rights…or rather, didn’t stand.

In any event, I honestly don’t have a clue who I’m going to support…at this point. And Bernie Sanders is now calling Clinton out on her past stand on gay rights.

“In 1996, I faced another fork in the road. A very, very difficult political situation. It was called the Defense of Marriage Act. DOMA,” he said, referring to the law signed by President Clinton. “And let us all remember that gay and lesbian rights were not popular then, as they are today. It was a tough vote. … That was not a politically easy vote. 
“Now today, some are trying to rewrite history by saying that they voted for one anti-gay law to stop something worse,” he said. “That is not the case. There was a small minority in the house opposed to discriminating against our gay brothers and sisters and I am proud that I was one of those members.”
Now I do applaud Sanders for his vote. I was very young but I remember DOMA very well. But I don’t feel the urge to thank him. Again, these are rights we should have had all along. 
Hillary Clinton did not come out in favor of gay rights until she saw that she didn’t have any other choice and that it would suit her political agenda. And someone should tell her we know and we discuss it all the time. The appropriate response from her would be an apology, not an excuse.  
Gay Activists Call Hillary Clinton Out
 …for defending DOMA, which happened during her husband’s administration.

“On Defense of Marriage, I think what my husband believed — and there was certainly evidence to support it — is that there was enough political momentum to amend the Constitution of the United States of America, and that there had to be some way to stop that,” Clinton told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.

But those who were familiar with deliberations in the Clinton White House say that that’s not what happened. Clinton’s presidential papers also show no evidence that fear of a constitutional amendment factored into support for the bill. Instead, Clinton signed DOMA when it landed on his desk — it passed both houses of Congress with ease — because it was politically convenient and because he was publicly opposed to gay marriage.
You can read the rest here.

I think in a general sense this shows how gays were treated and thought of in the 1990’s. I remember how horrible I felt when I heard about DOMA. In the same respect, it was a feeling I’d already gotten very used to as well.

This is what President Clinton stated…for those of you who might not know or have forgotten:

Statement by President Bill Clinton
 
On Friday, September 20, prior to signing the Defense of Marriage Act, President Clinton released the following statement: 

Throughout my life I have strenuously opposed discrimination of any kind, including discrimination against gay and lesbian Americans. I am signing into law H.R. 3396, a bill relating to same-gender marriage, but it is important to note what this legislation does and does not do. 

I have long opposed governmental recognition of same-gender marriages and this legislation is consistent with that position. The Act confirms the right of each state to determine its own policy with respect to same gender marriage and clarifies for purposes of federal law the operative meaning of the terms “marriage” and “spouse”. 

This legislation does not reach beyond those two provisions. It has no effect on any current federal, state or local anti-discrimination law and does not constrain the right of Congress or any state or locality to enact anti-discrimination laws. I therefore would take this opportunity to urge Congress to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, an act which would extend employment discrimination protections to gays and lesbians in the workplace. This year the Senate considered this legislation contemporaneously with the Act I sign today and failed to pass it by a single vote. I hope that in its next Session Congress will pass it expeditiously. 

I also want to make clear to all that the enactment of this legislation should not, despite the fierce and at times divisive rhetoric surrounding it, be understood to provide an excuse for discrimination, violence or intimidation against any person on the basis of sexual orientation. Discrimination, violence and intimidation for that reason, as well as others, violate the principle of equal protection under the law and have no place in American society.
