Is “Twink” Not PC Anymore
They use the word “reclaiming” here in yet another attempt to disguise more PC rhetoric. I’m not disputing the argument. I don’t really have any strong feelings about it one way or the other. I’ve never used the word twink in a derogatory way. I’m just wondering about the word, “reclaim.”
It’s another series of memes with quotes from young gay men discussing how they feel about the word twink. It’s varied.
Being a twink isn’t a bad thing. I look younger than I am, who wouldn’t want that?

More Oscar Butthurt
This one is interesting. Here’s an actual Oscar nominee crying butthurt and boycotting the Oscars because she didn’t get invited to perform, and Sam Smith and Gaga did. Because, I guess, being nominated just isn’t good enough for her.
“Confused, I sat and waited. Would someone be in touch? But as time bore on I heard nothing. I slowly realized that the positive implication of this nomination was being retracted. The producers seemed to have decided to stage performances only by the singers who were deemed commercially viable.”
Embracing Your Foot Fetish
Thankfully, an article that’s not about PC rhetoric or Oscar butthurt. This one is about embracing your individual fetish in five different ways. Frankly, I think there are two kinds of people in the world when it comes to sex: those who admit they have a fetish and those who don’t.
“A fetish is not a disorder at all, unless it causes personal distress or is harmful to others,” David told Queerty’s Mark King. So if you’ve been transfixed by the uniform worn by the hot Castro cop, relax. “The most common fetish is a body part, like feet. Second would be objects such as clothing, and finally, a fetish can be a behavior, like a role play fantasy.”
You can read the rest here. I have never once met anyone without at least a small harmless fetish. Most wouldn’t even speak of it aloud.
It’s an interesting piece worth reading in full.
When I’m writing erotic fiction/romance, I sometimes add little fetishes I think readers might like…I get private messages all the time about them, so I know. I wrote this story, Four Feet Under With My Buddies, with a foot fetish in mind and I’ve received many private, discreet responses about it.
