Mexican Football Officials: Anti-Gay Chants NOT Insulting
Over the years, I’ve posted about all these anti-gay slurs that always tend to happen at professional sports events, and this time it’s interesting because Mexican Football Officials seem to have a defense. The obligatory apology isn’t being offered this time.
While you might have been wounded by homophobic jeers at soccer games, sports officials have determined they are “not insulting,” so you no longer have to be offended. What a relief!
This comes after Mexican fans shouted slurs during a game in September against Honduras. FIFA, which regulates professional soccer, issued a fine of around $30,000 to the Mexican football organization, which they are now appealing.
You can read more about this here. They claim the word “puto” means coward and it’s not an anti-gay slur. It should be interesting to see how this turns out. I don’t really know enough about the language to comment on this one, but I do speak book Italian and I know that things often get lost in translation.
WeHo Mayor, Grindr, and Meth
With absolutely no knowledge of Grindr or meth, this article is surprising for people like me…those of us who don’t do illegal drugs and aren’t familiar with that kind of lifestyle. I never realized people were doing this on hook up apps. Evidently, it’s a serious issue that needs to be addressed.
Okay, Grindr, we need to have an intervention. The West Hollywood based app is coming under fire for facilitating drug sales, and now city officials are demanding a meeting with the CEO.
Watch Adele with Gay Dads and Baby
This is the kind of thing I love to see. I think it shows something positive for a change, and I think it’s the future for many gay men. It brings people together.
Some stories have all the elements: a gay couple, a little baby, and Adele taking a break from belting out “Hello” in order to cuddle with said baby.
