Dick Pic Lady and Shame on Facebook; The Alleged Calvin Harris Dick Pic A Lie?; Big Brother’s Big Gay Kiss

Dick Pic Lady and Shame On Facebook

This struck me as peculiar, only because the woman got so much public support. 

I’ve already posted about this, and this is a follow up…however, in short: a woman posted a restaurant review on Facebook, some guy sent her an unsolicited dick pic in a PM afterward, and she was so frustrated she sent him a barrage of censored dick pics in retaliation. I saw her photos and they were censored. She was hoping to teach him a lesson.

Then Facebook, in all its wisdom and glory, did this to the woman. Evidently, they don’t have enough time to spend on allegedly censoring political news.


After the post was shared thousands of times, she told the BBC, “I feel like Beyoncé. I’ve had messages from all over the world, including Germany, Netherlands and even Aruba. People have been saying ‘You’re my inspiration’ and ‘You’ve won the internet’. I’ve also had guys also saying sorry on behalf of men. I’m so shocked.”

However, Facebook chose to remove her post and deactivate her account, making this the most recent example of Facebook’s questionable content-removal decisions.

If anyone else has ever experienced this on Facebook, you know what this poor woman is up against.

The Alleged Calvin Harris Dick Pic A Lie?

While searching for articles about the woman above, I ran across this one. Keep in mind this is all alleged…and the article makes this clear, too.

According to Radar Online, a pic that’s being described as a “Calvin Harris dick pic” is making it’s way around the interwebz.

For those who don’t know, Harris was with Taylor Swift and they’re not a couple any longer.

You can read the rest here.

And this web site claims the entire story is false. 

Calvin Harris did not send a “dick pic” to a music executive, despite a new questionable report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this. We’re told the claim is a “total lie.”

Big Brother’s Big Gay Kiss

I know I’ve mentioned before over the years that I’m a huge Big Brother fan. I have been since the very first season. And it’s the only reality show I actually watch, and ever watched.

Now Big Brother UK is making news for a big gay kiss. Back when BB first aired, I never, ever thought I would see anything like this happen. It just wasn’t done back then. Hillary Clinton was still deciding whether or not to support gay marriage…hell, she hadn’t “evolved” yet.

The story so far: Ryan, caught in a stompy drama spiral, comes storming into the house after a fray with Sam Giffen, but that spite melts away instantaneously and gives way to cutesy passion as he spies Hughie and says, “I’ve missed you 20/10.” (Erm, what does that mean?) Then there’s some wanton embracing on a sofa, which gives way to passionate kissing and rumply microphone feedback.

There’s a video with a kiss…AND, legs go up, too. 

You can check that one out here.

The Arrangement 

Straights Don’t Like Gay PDA; Bette Midler Gay Culture Is Ordinary; Strictly Come Dancing With Gay Couples

Straights Don’t Like Gay PDA (Public Display of Affection)

This is interesting because there’s a mixed message coming from many in the mainstream with regard to gay people showing any signs of public affection, in direct contrast with gay rights and equality. In this case it’s gay people (men and women) kissing in public.

In a survey of 1,000 Americans, 70% said they supported inheritance rights for gay couples, but far fewer were supportive of gay people kissing in public. 

Of the straights interviewed, 95% said they approved of straight couples kissing on the cheek in public, but only 55% approved of gay male couples doing the same. When asked if it was a lesbian couple, 72% approved. 

Over 20% of heterosexuals surveyed even disapproved of gay men telling the respondents about their relationships.

You can read the rest here. I think this just proves how much discrimination there is out there, and how much all LGBT people need to start standing up for themselves in different ways…which will happen in time. I also think as more gays assimilate this PDA issue will disappear eventually.

Bette Midler Gay Culture Is Ordinary

First, in full disclosure, I’ve been gay all my life and frankly Bette Midler’s never been my most favorite performer. I like some things she’s done, others not so much. So this notion that all gay men think of her as an icon isn’t exactly correct. I really do think it’s becoming more important to clarify some things, and one is that Midler’s only an icon to a certain segment of the gay community, not the entire gay community.(The same goes for Kathy Griffin, Liza, Cher, and a few others.) You can read this piece by Nick Boeving about gay icon, the late Joan Rivers.

So with that out of the way, I’m going to remain as objective as I can to Midler’s recent statements:

‘The extreme characters you used to see in the Village in the old days, you just don’t see them anymore,’ Midler tells Advocate.com. 

‘I really do miss them because there was a feeling I used to get that people were expressing themselves in the most elaborate of ways,’ she adds. ‘Now the [gay community] has kind of gone mainstream. It’s sort of ordinary now, and a little bit of the specialness has rubbed away.’

I can’t help but think that sounds a lot like a confederate southerner after the Civil War claiming how much they miss the good old days of slavery before the Civil War. Or even worse, it’s like men of the 21st century saying they miss the good old days when women in the 19th century couldn’t vote, work, or in some cases even own property and handle their own money.

I don’t know WTF she’s talking about with regard to “specialness.” Maybe she should watch more Glee. Or, Ask Oprah and her best friend Gayle to do a special on OWN abut it.

Look at it this way, Midler would never have said that about any other minority in America without getting slammed from one end to the other. And, this is really another good example of passive aggressive homophobia where the straight person making the comments doesn’t even realize it. I don’t think Midler meant harm.

Strictly Come Dancing With Gay Couples

I posted a while back about an article where someone slammed the concept of gay people dancing together in high profile dancing competitions…like the TV show, Dancing With the Stars. I’m too lazy to look for that link, however, this article to which I’m linking now discusses gay couples dancing on a BBC show called Strictly Come Dancing.

Strictly Come Dancing will feature same-sex couples dancing together for the first time this weekend.

The BBC dancing competition show will feature the professional dancers doing a ‘Cops and Robbers’ routine, likely to appear on Sunday night’s results show (23 November).

Gay pro Robin Windsor, who was forced to pull out of this year’s competition due to a back injury, will return to dance alongside the other pros.

You can read more here. It’s happening, slowly but surely. It’s still making headlines, it’s still shocking to many, but someone should let Bette Midler know that now we’re actually allowed to dance together on big TV shows just like everyone else. It may sound ordinary to some, but it’s one more step toward equality for the rest of us and I for one don’t miss the “good old days.”
