Ryan Field Gay Christmas Books; College Athlete and the Gay F Slur; Gay Fight at the Waffle House

Ryan Field Gay Christmas Books

I have another release out this month that’s titled, A Christmas Carl. It’s with Riverdale Avenue Books and it’s being sold at their web site and most other sites where books are sold.

Here’s another, The Littlest Christmas Tree. This is a novella that was part of the Second Chance series I indie published. Here’s the Amazon link, and this one is published in most places where e-books are sold as well.

This one is titled, Chase of a Christmas Dream, and it’s part of my indie Chase series. I loved writing this book, and this one is available everywhere, too. And, it’s available in e-book or paperback.

This one is titled, The Computer Tutor. It’s more of a novella/short story and it’s priced at .99.

And this one is published with Ravenous Romance…Cowboy Christmas Miracle. This one is very close to me as well. I loved writing this entire series.

If you want to find out more about any of these Christmas books, you can do a search at the top left corner of this blog. I have posted a great deal about each one.

College Athlete and the Gay F Slur

Here’s how a college athlete replied when someone referred to him as a “faggot.”

In the below video from Davey Wavey, Demeester recounts what it’s like being called a “faggot” by an opponent; a situation he faced last Saturday.

After Demeester alerted the referee about the scuffle, the incident was reported to the Penn State Altoona captain and coach. (The opponent was from a satellite campus, Penn State Altoona.)

You can check out the video here. It’s not clickbait…it’s a great video. Trust me.

Gay Fight at the Waffle House

Here’s a link to a video where a young gay guy is attacked at the Waffle House.

An undated video uploaded to YouTube on December 9 shows a terrifying attack on a young apparently gay man in a Waffle House restaurant. Another young man, who also appears to be gay, tries to intervene in the fight and it quickly turns into a brawl.

The video depicts the first two men arguing at the counter when the gay man is called a “Sissy boy” and gets sucker punched. The attacker continues his assault as the gay youth stumbles backwards in the restaurant and patrons flee and scream.

You can check that out, here.  It’s brutal. I don’t eat waffles or complex carbs, so I can’t comment. But I do post about these things to show that not all that much has changed in the world.

Gay Couple Humiliated In Restaurant; VAT and HIV; Power Bottom Appreciation Day

Gay Couple Humiliated

During an anniversary dinner, a gay couple was shown the door in a Dublin restaurant because other customers didn’t like the way they were holding hands. One customer referred to them as “disgusting.”

“My partner and I were in a Dublin city centre restaurant celebrating our second anniversary and we were being physically tactile with each other. Not kissing the faces of each other or anything, but holding hands and looking into each other’s eyes.”
“A waiter came to out table and told us that customers at another table were complaining about us. He suggested that we stop showing each other physical affection.”

It only devolved from there. Here’s the rest.

It still happens, and not just in Dublin. Tony and I pick and choose our restaurants…like everything else we do…with care to avoid things like this happening. I’d rather be on the offensive than the defensive at all times. It’s a way of life.

VAT and HIV

This is interesting. I’d never heard about it before this article…

VAT (visceral adipose tissue) is a type of hard fat that can affect people with HIV, surrounding the organs and making it difficult for people to do things like bending over to tie their shoes. Many people don’t know that VAT is different from regular fat. When you think about stomach fat, you normally think about the doughy fat around your midsection that usually can be addressed by a healthy diet and exercise. But VAT doesn’t work that way. It can be challenging to reduce VAT with exercise and healthy living alone.

You can read more about it here. There’s also a web site link for VAT.

Power Bottom Appreciation Day

I didn’t know this either, which is obviously why I missed posting about all last week. So you’ll have to mark the calendar for next year. But it’s actually a part of gay culture…according to wiki…I’d never heard mentioned before.

Halloween might be considered the national gay holiday, but you should treat your bottom to a fancy dinner tonight because October 30 is Power Bottom Appreciation Day.

According to the all-knowing Wikipedia, which is always right about absolutely everything, Power Bottom Appreciation Day first originated in the 1980s by “snickering gay men at cocaine-fueled Pampered Chef parties.”

Here’s the rest of the article.

There’s also a list of other LGBT+ holidays.

Her Friend’s Husband On Grindr; Man Kidnapped By Craigslist Trick; Pat Robertson Thinks Gays Are Vindictive

Her Friend’s Husband On Grindr

This all comes in the form of a letter to some advice columnist I’ve never heard of. A woman found out her friend’s husband was on Grindr. She’s asking for advice on how to handle it.

“My friend ‘Marissa’ and I have known each other for over 15 years,” the friend writes. “About five years ago, she started dating this guy, ‘Tom.’ I never particularly cared for him. He knows how close Marissa and I are, yet Tom never made any effort to get to know me. I also got the sense he was gay.”

Eventually, Marissa and Tom were married. And now, it turns out the friend’s gaydar may have been accurate.

“Last night, Marissa’s little sister called me to tell me that one her friends had found Tom on Grindr,” the woman writes. “I don’t know what to do. I know I have to tell Marissa, but how?”

You can read the rest here.  

It’s kind of interesting to see how straight people react to things like this. She’s “completely devastated for her.”

Man Kidnapped by Craigslist Trick

For some who might not know, a “trick” is a hook up…a one night stand or a quickie in a cruising area. I don’t hear the term used very often anymore. I’ve never used it much.   

A guy in Australia allegedly met another guy on Craigslist and he was kidnapped and threatened with castration.

According to court documents, the victim picked up Hall in his car at around 12:30 a.m. on January 25. After getting into the vehicle, Hall directed him to drive to a nearby dock and park under a broken streetlamp. And that’s when things took a dark turn.

It gets much worse. One more piece of evidence that you can’t trust anything, anywhere when it comes to meeting people online. 


The rest is here.    

Pat Robertson Thinks Gays Are Vindictive


Here’s an article where Pat Robertson spews more gay hate, and he doesn’t even really know any gay people. If he did, he wouldn’t say things like this. 

After acknowledging the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of same-sex marriage, Robertson went on a tirade about how “they don’t want to stop there.”

“It is vindictive now. We’re not talking about having rights from the poor, oppressed gays, we’re talking about taking away the freedoms of everybody who disagrees with them,” Robertson stated.

I don’t fully understand what “freedoms” he’s talking about. Did someone tell Kim Davis she can’t wear those Mother Hubbard dresses anymore?

North Carolina Bar Throws Out Gay Couple; Greg Louganis 30 Years Post Wheaties Snub; Rapper Slams Caitlyn Jenner

North Carolina Bar Throws Out Gay Couple

In Fayetteville, NC, there’s a bar that threw a gay couple out and the owner is now receiving backlash…from all over the country. What actually happened isn’t totally clear yet. 

According to the two guys…

‘He put his arm around me, he gave me a kiss, and she said this wasn’t right, this wasn’t OK,’ said Deras, who was visiting from California. ‘She threatened both of us. He gave me a kiss. It was very minor. It was just a peck. It was two seconds.’


The owner, Pam Griffin, claims otherwise…

‘I walked up to them calmly. I asked them guys, you know, can you kind of just separate, kind of move apart?’

She told WRAL News, ‘I don’t care if you stay and drink. We don’t need to be doing that, and just calm down because you’re making people feel uncomfortable.’

She said they then laughed and gave each other another ‘big kiss.’

Then it all devolved into an ugly scene from there. Would Ms. Griffin have reacted that way to a straight couple? Would she have claimed that customers were complaining? It think that makes a big difference. However, we’re talking about a bar. And a bar is a bar. It’s not a church.

Greg Louganis 30 Years Post Wheaties Snub

Openly gay Olympic swimmer, Greg Louganis, seems to be reaching out to the Wheaties people about putting his image on the box.  

‘To simply be here, living my life as my true self is rewarding enough,’ Louganis writes in a newWhoSay column. ‘However, I feel like I owe this box to my friends, family, and fans that have been cheering me on for decades. Sure, the Wheaties cover would have been cool in 1984… but after all we’ve been through, it would be even more iconic now.’

At the time, 30 years ago, it’s alleged they didn’t want his image on the box because of gay rumors that were circulating. 

You can read the rest here. He goes on to talk about how far we’ve come and how much has changed.

And for the people at Wheaties…in case you’re not interested in Louganis. I’m free. Hell, that’s not only a great message there’s a lot of money involved in a deal like that. I love Wheaties more than Nutella, I run five miles every single morning, I work out regularly, and I’ll do it for half the money of what Louganis wants…and I’ll put that in writing. (Smile)

Rapper Slams Caitlyn Jenner

There’s this rapper that claims Caitlyn Jenner is “An Affront to God.”

The rapper’s name is  Waka. Flocka. Flame.

That’s really all you need to know…yes, Waka. Flocka. Flame. 

But there’s this:

It’s like, it’s not cool, they’re not marketing that. They don’t market families and husbands and wives no more. They marketing young girls, you know what I’m saying? Transgenders — they’re marketing evil, man.’

Gay Slur Painted on NY Home: Dutch Singer Thinks Miley Cyrus Is A Fake

Gay Slur Painted on NY Home

This is one of the reasons Tony and I have security and cameras everywhere, and also why we specifically *chose* to live our lives in a place that’s gay friendly with a larger gay population. Unfortunately, not every gay person does live in a place like this and they have to endure this kind of bigotry.

The home of a New York gay couple was vandalized with the slur ‘Jenner fags.’

According to WNYT.com, the graffiti was noticed by Lyle Houston on Thursday morning (23 July). He called partner John Mcenerney after discovering the damage to their Wynantskill home. Wynantskill is located approximately 8 miles from Albany.

‘You would think my initial gut reaction would be like, “oh my God, I fear for my life.” I kind of feel more sorry for the person that they felt it was necessary to try to destroy somebody’s house,’ Mcenerney said to WNYT.

You can read the rest here.


This doesn’t just happen to gays either. I remember when my younger straight brother took an African American girl to his prom. The next morning the “N” word was painted all over my parents garage doors.

Dutch Singer Thinks Miley Cyrus Is a Fake

This is amusing. A Dutch singer, Loona, is calling out celebrities like Miley Cyrus for claiming they are bisexual. Loona allegedly thinks these celebrities are full of crap and only looking for publicity. Hey, gay is the new “black.” It’s getting the most publicity and who isn’t trying to make money on that?

Singer Loona, whose last single Caliente was out on 5 June, was referring to Kristen Stewart, Miley Cyrus and Cara Delevingne during a broadcast on female bisexual celebrities for boulevard magazine Punkt 12 on German freeview channel RTL.

She described Stewart, who was in a relationship with her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson for at least two years, as being ‘more of a masculine type’, saying: ‘I could accept it [bisexuality] from her.’

In 2013, Loona admitted to faking being in a same-sex relationship with a German model for PR purposes; she now said she never expected the attention the relationship got, but couldn’t really believe Cyrus’ relationship was honest.

‘Miley Cyrus is a girl only looking for publicity,’ she said in the interview.
‘So I don’t believe her; and it’s definitely a PR stunt.’

Frankly, if I had to bet on this my money goes with Loona. I see so much fakery these days with some people that I only have to see a post or an update begin with “Weeee” and I go into cringe mode.  Oh wait, there’s “Squeeee.” I think it’s amusing because most people know this and they just don’t say anything. Most people are too polite.

And while Cyrus might be bisexual and all this hype might be sincere, I love this Loona for actually having the guts to speak up, call it out, and not care about what anyone thinks.

The rest is here. 

The comments are interesting.

Mike Pence’s Snarky Pride Letter; Chick-fil-A At Iowa Pride Picnic; Rue Paul Forced to Drop "She-Male"; Rudy Giuliani Is Pro-Gay

Mike Pence’s Snarky Pride Letter

For those who don’t know, Mike Pence is the governor of Indiana who signed an anti-gay religious freedom bill that caused a shitstorm not too long ago. He’s making headlines again for writing a letter about Indiana gay pride, without actually mentioning “Pride” or “LGBT” once. You can pretty much assume this was a snub.

It’s a form letter:

Greetings,

On behalf of the people of Indiana, welcome to Indianapolis. I am confident that those of you who traveled from out of state will come to know our famous Hoosier Hospitality.

Our state’s capital city is well known as a destination for conventions, festivals, business meetings and other events. In fact, a recent USA TODAY Reader’s Choice digital poll ranked Indianapolis as the Best Convention City in the country.

Like so many other organizations who continue to use Indianapolis as their destination of choice, I am confident you will come to know a vibrant city.

During your stay, please explore the many entertainment options Indianapolis has to offer such as our museums, restaurants, theaters, historic landmarks, White River State Park, and the Indianapolis Zoo, just to name a few.

So, once again, welcome to Indiana. We hope you enjoy your stay.

Sincerely,

Mike Pence

You know, it reads a lot better aloud, with a “breathy whisper.” 

The rest is here. 

Chick-fil-A At Iowa Pride Picnic

Aside from the fact that no one ever knows how to spell Chick-fil-A correctly, they always seem to be making news when it comes to LGBT related topics. First there was the whole family and bible deal that caused controversy, then there was a call to boycott them, and now they are serving chicken at the Iowa Pride Picnic.

Pride officials approached the franchise owner, Adam Donius, about getting involved after he sponsored a different event last year.

“We offered him different ways that he could contribute and be part of our Pride, help us build community,” Jewell Amos, chair of Iowa City Pride, told KCRG News. “He said that he totally believes in building community. So he was like, sure.”

The rest is here. I don’t know much about Chick-fil-A because I’ve never been to one. We live in a community where zoning laws frown on any fast food enterprises and the only place they’ve allowed in for the part thirty years was McDonald’s. Of course this is a good thing for small restaurants and other small businesses. 

But I’ve heard it’s good chicken.

Rue Paul Forced to Drop “She-Male”

There always seems to be something coming up lately about words, terms, and phrases we can and cannot use anymore. The PC police seems to be on everyone’s back, to the point where I find myself constantly self-censoring…right down to my shortest tweet. This latest twist with Ru Paul and the term “she-male” seems to be part of living in the world today, whether we like it or not.

I would not have changed it, but that’s their choice. Our intention was always coming from a place of love. On paper, you cannot read intention, so it was actually hurtful. First of all, drag is dangerous. We are making fun of everything. But when someone doesn’t get the joke or feels offended by it, it’s a lose-lose situation, because you can’t explain a joke. It isn’t funny if you explain it.”

I’m just waiting for the day they tell us we can’t say “fuck” anymore because it will offend asexuals. And you know that day is coming.

I found all this here. 

Rudy Giuliani Is Pro-Gay

I know a lot of LGBT people who only vote according to party lines and they probably don’t care about this it all. But Rudy Giuliani is a Republican who is openly pro-gay and pro-choice for women. And as a result he doesn’t think he could ever be taken seriously by his own party in a Presidential bid.

Because I believe I can’t get nominated because of my views on gay marriage, I’m in favor gay rights, I’m in favor of gay marriage. I see it as an issue of equality. I’m pro-choice. I’m anti-abortion personally but I’m pro choice. I’m pro-immigrant and I haven’t backed down from it.

Of course this is exactly the kind of thing we need most in the US…centrism. However, I doubt we’ll be seeing that any time soon, and I blame that mostly on overpaid political pundits on networks like Fox and CNN. The average voter is not informed with facts and most don’t even know who stands for what anymore. He/she is swayed with clever opinion and spins designed to attract ratings and clickbait by the likes of ambitious celebrities like Megyn Kelly and Rachel Maddow. 

You can check out the Giuliani article here.

The comments are as you would expect them to be. Nothing new to share there.

RIP Jim Bailey

Frankly, I’ve been seeing this all over social media and I don’t really know who Jim Bailey is. And I’m not the only one. I’ve seen many ask who he was each time something is posted. So this is interesting, especially with respect to gay culture. 

Jim Bailey, who helped introduce American television audiences to drag with his frequent appearances on classic series such Here’s Lucy, The Carol Burnett Show and The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, has died at age 77. A message posted to the entertainer’s official website on May 30 reads: “Heaven is getting a fabulous show tonight with standing room only! Rest in Peace Our Sweet Prince.”

Bailey’s manager Stephen Campbell told The Hollywood Reporter that his client died of cardiac arrest from pneumonia complications.

The rest is here, with a video of his work. 

Seriously, check out the videos. This isn’t campy drag and lip-synchronization.This is the real deal.

Trevor Donovan in Texas Rising Trailer; Gay Man and Bloody McDonald’s Burger; Robin Williams’ Last Gay Role

Trevor Donovan In Texas Rising Trailer

I’ve posted a few times about Trevor Donovan starring in the upcoming History Channel mini-series, Texas Rising. You can check that out here.

It’s a series filled with history during a time in America a lot of us don’t know much about. It’s focused on the Texas Revolution and the Texas Rangers. Donovan is playing Kit Acklin, who was a Texas Ranger with deep American roots, and it will debut on May 25th, almost one month from today.

Rather than get into more historical facts this time, here’s a new trailer for TR, with a vocal by Kris Kristofferson. You’ll like this, trust me. 

Gay Man and Bloody McDonald’s Burger

A 24 year old gay man went to a McDonald’s in Washington state and they called him a faggot and served up a rare burger seeping with blood. But to be perfectly honest, this isn’t just a clear case of gay hate. It is bad, as it stands. But there really is more to the story.

As far as I can parse this, the gay guy overheard the manager calling out an employee and the guy didn’t like what he heard.

Then, the gay guy spoke to the employee who was getting yelled at:

‘I stated if she was my manager and was in my face, I would not tolerate that.’

The employee went back and told the manager (the manager is a woman) what the gay guy said. And this transpired:


‘As they both were speaking, they both turned around and looked at me and then I explained that he did not need to tell her. I then stated that I would gladly explain to her how I felt about her scolding an employee in front of customers and crew members,’ he said.

Because the manager is supposed to care about what the gay guy feels?

The manager replied.

‘She then looks at me, shrugs her shoulders and says, “I really don’t care.”’

The manager could have left it at that, but she didn’t. 

You can read more here. There are a few more interesting details. Even if the gay guy may or may not have been a douche in this case, it still doesn’t give anyone the right to refer to him with pejoratives or give him bad food. The manager could have just called him a douche and left it at that. But they always have to bring the gay angle into it.

Robin Williams’ Last Gay Role

This July there will be an indie film released titled, Boulevard. It stars the late Robin Williams and he’ll be playing a gay character who is coming to terms with being gay rather late in life.

‘Boulevard is a complex, life-affirming and surprising film and Robin’s final performance is absolutely remarkable,’ Kevin Kasha, head of acquisitions for Starz, tells Entertainment Weekly.

Producer Monica Aguirre Diez Barroso tells EW: ‘We are very excited about partnering with Starz Digital to get this beautiful movie out there.’

In the film, Williams’ character begins an unsettling relationship with a young hustler (Roberto Aguire) and his safe existence with his wife (Kathy Baker) is rocked to its foundation.

Even though it sounds like all the painfully stereotypical tragic gay books and films I’ve worked hard as a writer to stay away from in my lifetime, because not everything that is gay is tragic and painful, it also sounds like something that can and does happen in real life. And there’s no doubt that I will make a point of seeing it. Hollywood can’t help themselves…yet. They only associate gay story lines with pain and tragedy about sad sack figures who are gay and are “rocked” to their foundations because they are gay.

I’m gay. I’m happy. And even though I do face various forms of discrimination daily that I’ve learned how to deal with, each time I’ve been rocked to my proverbial foundation it had nothing to do with my being gay. Usually it’s when I lose my keys. 

So there you are.
