Shemar Moore Is Straight!!

In case you didn’t hear, or you were somehow led to believe something different, Criminal Minds actor, Shemar Moore, is a straight dude. He’s a straight bro, man. 

He. Loves. Women.

This is what good old Shemar put on Instagram…with the expected, proverbial shirtless selfie we see them all post on social media….because he’s not gay and he wants all the females to know it. 

Awwwwwww sh*t…. Let the controversy begin!!! I love him.. I hate him.. He’s straight.. He’s gay… He’s sweet.. He’s arrogant… Well, I would just like to say I LOVE women and life and people!!! I do not discriminate or allow people to feel small…. PERIOD!!! Say what you want… I am SHEMAR FRANKLIN MOORE… PERIOD!!! Heeeeeeeeey BABY GIRLS n Fans!!! Happy Saturday!!! Keep it SILLY n SEXY!!! Kisses n Thangs!!! ???????

You can read more here about how Shemar Moore is NOT, I repeat, is NOT gay.

In full disclosure, I don’t even know who he is and I couldn’t care less. 

Christian Student Expelled

This happened in the UK, so I really don’t know how free speech is handled over there. And I hate to comment on anything I’m not sure about.

A 38-year-old Christian postgraduate student in the U.K. has been expelled after he made a Facebook post supporting Kim Davis and protesting same-sex marriage.

Felix Ngole is a former Cameroon resident who received asylum from the U.K., received two degrees, and became a teacher. In the post, he quoted a bible verse from Leviticus in support of his antigay beliefs as a part of a discussion thread.

After another Sheffield University student complained about his post, he was called to a disciplinary hearing. As The Telegraph reports, this is where things get…complicated

You can read the rest here. This time I think I agree with Queerty. This is what they said…

We’re (duh) all about equal rights for the LGBT community, but there’s something icky about derailing someone’s career based on a Facebook post. It’s a little too 1984 for our tastes.

The comments are…interesting.

This reminds me of a quote I once read about free speech. I’m paraphrasing this one; it’s not verbatim: “the government can’t arrest you for stating your opinion, but the rest of us don’t have to listen to your bullshit, and we can show you the door.”

“There Are No Gay Mormons”

At least not according to this dude…

That’s the line of of thinking employed by David A. Bednar, a high-ranking Mormon official, who says “there are no homosexual members of the church. We are not defined by sexual attraction. We are not defined by sexual behavior. We are sons and daughters of God, and all of us have different challenges of the flesh.”

You can read it all here, with comments, where you will either gasp or guffaw. Or both.

Making Gay "Whoopie"; Looking Cancellation Painful; Russian Gay Propaganda Laws

Making Gay “Whoopie”

At first I thought this might be about Whoopi Goldberg. I honestly didn’t know WTF “whoopie” was.  I’m not the only one either. I tweeted something about it and a few other people didn’t know either.

Then I thought maybe it’s the Amish cookie.

As it turns out it has nothing to do with either of those. But it’s Monday, it’s summer, many of us are working hard, and it’s good stupid clickbait from none other than Queerty.com that will make you smile.

It’s another one of those meme collections that Queerty is becoming known for. And, “Whoopie” means hooking up…having sex. Here’s what one says:

In college I had sex with a teammate on the field in the middle of the night. We stuck the condom over a drinking fountain after. Sorry to whoever found that. 

And there you go. You’re welcome.

The strangest place I ever made “whoopie” was in an empty school bus in the parking lot of a gay bar in New Jersey.

More fun and games here. 

Looking Cancellation Painful 

It seems that when HBO’s “Looking” was canceled it was painful to the gay president of HBO. It was painful for a lot of us. I didn’t think Looking was perfect at first, however, I always thought the one most important thing about it was that it represented a big segment of the gay community that’s never really had a voice. It was honest and for once the gay guy was not turned into the clown and court jester.

I thought the show, creatively, was really doing something that I hadn’t seen on any other show, particularly dealing with gay lives. As a gay man, in particular, I was very proud that there was a show that felt like it was dealing very honestly and openly with gay men and their lives, without putting them into a comedic mode.”

You can read more here. 

There are about 40 comments that I didn’t bother to read. Looking is over now and I don’t care what the people who didn’t like it have to say. I’m starting to think that the ultimate problem with all gay content in the future is that now with gay marriage legal everywhere, and that one common goal to fight for gone, gay men are so diverse it’s not going to be possible to put together any content that everyone loves. And that’s not such a bad thing after all.

Russian Gay Propaganda Laws

This falls under the category of I told you so for me. Whenever I think of the gay people from the US who went to the Russian Olympics most recently I still cringe a little at their lack of support and their need to get attention. It’s not something I could have done.

And here’s another reason why. Thanks to the gay propaganda laws in Russia a young gay man was fined for having an LGBT gay youth web site.

Elena Klimova, founder of Deti-404 (Children-404) – an online support group for LGBT teenagers in Russia – was fined 50,000 roubles (US$850) after a court in Nizhny Tagil ruled that the site was guilty of distributing ‘propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations among minors,’ the Guardian reported.

The name is a reference to the internet error page ‘404 – Page Not Found’.
Klimova, who is journalist, became notable in Russia after publishing a series of articles about a minor’s homosexuality.

You can read the rest here. He’s a bright, courageous young man.  And I’m going to come back to this in the future next time I hear about Robbie Roberts going to Russia for some other sport. He’s already started making excuses ahead of time.

Brits, Porn and Free Speech; Naked Gay Lithuanian Film Actor; Andy Cohen on Sex with Women

Brits, Porn and Free Speech

I know this sounds unimportant right now to many, but I actually do find these things interesting to a certain degree. Porn is a huge draw and in some cases a money-maker. Many people watch it for many different reasons, and I don’t think it’s fair to judge them. This piece talks about which porn people in the UK would miss the most…for this reason:

The UK government have banned UK porn producers from producing certain types of online pornographic material, specifically anything that depicts ‘the infliction of pain’ and ‘verbal and physical abuse.’

I’m working on the second novel in the Fangsters series right now, and I get into certain aspects of “verbal” and “rough sex” in the book because the main characters are vampires. That alone should be reason enough not to have to explain anything. They’re vampires; everything is exaggerated because they aren’t human…even the sex. But I’ve found myself on the defensive at certain times wondering if readers would understand what the characters were talking about. It didn’t happen in the first book in the series. There were a few, in the minority, who thought it was BDSM. So this time rather than self-censor I decided to approach the sex scenes in a different way. I probably did more telling than showing this time, but I think it was important. 

In any event, my book isn’t the issue here. My biggest question about this entire topic is more free speech oriented. And who gets to decide what is physical and verbal abuse? In other words, if two gay vampires are having sex and one calls the other a “fag”…as a sexual turn-on, within the context of the sex scene…is that verbal abuse and should that be censored…even if this is a common phrase with some gay men during sex? If I have to explain this any further it’s not worth it. Most of you get what I mean. And it has nothing to do with reality or homophobia on the surface. What this means subconsciously is another story and I’m not a psychologist.

The Independent says that practices that producers are now prohibited from depicting are listed as:

Spanking; Caning; Aggressive whipping; Penetration by any object ‘associated with violence’; Physical or verbal abuse (regardless of if consensual); Urolagnia (known as ‘water sports’); Role-playing as non-adults; Physical restraint; Humiliation; Female ejaculation; Strangulation; Facesitting; Fisting

And this is how all this relates to free speech. Yes. Porn is free speech.

Myles Jackman, an obscenity lawyer, said that his concern about the new regulations were about the wider issue of policing the internet. 

‘Pornography is the canary in the coalmine of free speech: it is the first freedom to die. If this assault on liberty is allowed to go unchallenged, other freedoms will fall as a consequence. 

 ‘This declaration of State censorship will affect millions of consenting adults who choose to view British pornography.’

I think it’s dangerous. And even if you aren’t into any of the things banned above, so should you. What if any government decided to ban the right to practice a certain religion? And it could happen. In fact, there have been governments who tried to kill of entire religious communities.Think Hitler.

You can read the rest here. This might be the beginning of a whole new trend…policing the Internet like TV and films have been censored for decades. Facebook does it all the time, without questions asked, for little things like gay men kissing. Do we want to see this happen?

Naked Gay Film Actor

An actor in Lithuania will go naked in the name of homophobia to save a gay Lithuanian film, You Can’t Escape Lithuania. I’m still not sure if someone tried to stop the film, but it sounds as if they need the funding because no one was willing to make things easier on them.

Denisas Kolomyckis will star in the film and by getting naked is following in the footsteps of his movie’s director. 24-year-old Romas Zabarauskas has already promised to strip off if the cash is raised to make the feature film via a crowd funding campaign. 

Just 33 hours remain to raise the $5,000 (€4,020) needed to reach their $20,000 target on Kickstarter. If they don’t reach their goal by 9pm GMT on Wednesday (3 December) they will get nothing. 

Kolomyckis, 22, said: ‘If my naked butt can help the film to reach its goal, I’m ready to do it.

According to his facebook page they reached the goal and I guess he’ll go naked. There’s a clip here. But before you judge him for doing this please keep in mind that Kim Kardashian showed her big naked ass in a lame attempt to “break the Internet.” The Internet broke her.

Andy Cohen on Sex with Women

Bravo TV host, Andy Cohen, has a new book out. And he’s being asked all the worst questions imaginable…like has he ever had sex with a woman? I wish someone just once would ask these interviewers if they ever had sex with a horse.

‘Never. Never full, full-monty. I’m a gold-star gay,’ Cohen said this week during an interview with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules star Lisa Vanderpump. 

When Vanderpump asked ‘How do you know you don’t like it?’ Cohen stated the obvious: ‘Well, because I like dudes so much more.’

That first question I can understand. I’m a little curious about that too sometimes. But the second one, how do you know you don’t like it, really gets under my last gay nerve. You don’t have to jump out of a plane to know you don’t like skydiving. And if you do you’re not playing with a full deck.

The rest is here.
