Wonder Woman Movie, Trevor Donovan, and Scott Eastwood Rumors; Don’t Objectify Kit Harington; Guys With Sweaty Bodies

Wonder Woman Movie, Trevor Donovan, and Scott Eastwood Rumors

I’ve been meaning to post about this because I know how many of you want to see female superheroes in feature films, and rightly so. Of course this is all mostly speculation based on rumor, and the rumor mill is all over the place, but there are a few interesting contenders up for the role of Wonder Woman’s love interest, Steve Trevor. 

First, with just a few searches I found comments suggesting Trevor Donovan, star of Texas Rising, would be perfect for the part of Steve Trevor. It reminded me of how many fans wanted Matt Bomer to play Christian Grey. I posted so much about that I’ve lost track. That was all rumor, too. But rumors take on lives of their own and they give fans a voice sometimes. I’ve also heard a few anonymous rumors that Trevor Donovan is, indeed, being seriously considered for the Steve Trevor part and this seems to have fans anxious to know what’s really going to happen. Donovan’s fan base is broad and loyal, from the US to Europe.

Then there is this article that states Scott Eastwood, son of Clint Eastwood, nailed the role. 

But there are so many Internet hoaxes these days it’s hard to know what to believe anymore.

Over the weekend, Scott Eastwood (son of Clint Eastwood) revealed that he had been cast in Suicide Squad while speaking to eTalk about his new movie The Longest Ride. So who is he playing?

According to Latino Review, Eastwood will play Steve Trevor and have a small cameo in Suicide Squad. Fans of DC Comics know Trevor as Wonder Woman’s love interest. Eastwood had a supporting role in Suicide Squad director David Ayer’s last movie, Fury.

Of course we’ll have to wait and see. But if the Trevor Donovan rumors are true, even though I have nothing against Eastwood, I’m still with the fans (and rumors) who are rallying around Trevor Donovan for the role of Steve Trevor simply because I’d like to see how Donovan handles it. So far, his range seems to be in multiple areas and he hasn’t been typecast by anyone. And just once it would be nice if producers really listened to their audiences…and the rumors…and gave them what they want.

Don’t Objectify Kit Harington

You know, this is interesting because it’s not something I talk about often here on the blog, but I see it all the time. If you were to scan through my news feed on Facebook on any given day of the week, at any time of the day, you would see women from all over the world objectifying men the same way men have always been slammed for objectifying women. I’m not saying that’s all bad, and you’ll see why at the end of the post.

Well, Kit Harington is sick and tired of it and he’s speaking up…with a different perspective:

To always be put on a pedestal as a hunk is slightly demeaning. It really is and it’s in the same way as it is for women. When an actor is seen only for her physical beauty it can be quite offensive. Well, it’s not just men that can be inappropriate sexually; women can be as well. I’m in a successful TV show in a kind of leading man way and it can sometimes feel like your art is being put to one side for your sex appeal. And I don’t like that. In this position you get asked a lot, ‘Do you like being a heart-throb? Do you like being a hunk?’ Well, my answer is, ‘That’s not what I got into it for.’”

I read this here.

I’ve always been loud and clear about double standards. I don’t like the fact that women are often portrayed nude in films and men aren’t. I find it offensive when men objectify women, and rape culture is something I can’t tolerate. I support all feminist issues even when I don’t always completely agree with them because I think that’s important to do…because I’m not a woman. So it would be highly disingenuous of me if I didn’t agree with Kit Harington on this one.

Let’s get rid of the double standards and lighten up on the sexual objectification of men, too. There’s a difference between admiring a man and turning him into an object. You don’t like it when it’s done to you.

Unless, of course, it’s James Franco. You can do anything to him you want and I’ll look the other way. (smile)

Guys With Sweaty Bodies

Just to show you I’m not a total PC prude, here’s an article that not only objectifies men but makes all gay men look a little ridiculous. But in this case I don’t think there’s anything wrong with looking a little ridiculous sometimes because we all know…I really do hope we all know…this is meant to be fun and it’s the context that matters, always. In other words, no one takes this seriously, no one expects to take this seriously, and it’s more about laughing at ourselves than it is about laughing at us. Again, at least I hope we all know this.

In any event:

Every third Friday at The Eagle in Los Angeles is D*ckslap, a wonderland full of free beard rubs, slick hands and magical dancing gogo men. This month featured Andy Bulter of Hercules & Love Affair. And can you spot one of the stars of last season’s Drag Race amongst the throng? Hint: he’s disguised as a boy.

Take a peek at some of the rowdiness below and see the full gallery at GayCities.

There’s more here.

If you don’t get this, let me put it this way. Kit Harington is clearly offended because he’s working hard to produce something more than just his body and his sexual image. He’s making this clear in many ways, including speaking out about it, that he’s more than just a “hunk.”

When I knew the late porn actor, Joey Stefano, a long time ago I remember going to one of his shows at a gay bar in New Jersey and someone in the audience asked, “Is it true you’re really studying to be a lawyer?” Joey Stefano blinked, looked that woman in the eye, and replied, “Do you have a life?” He found that very amusing; the clueless woman didn’t know how to respond, and most likely still doesn’t.

Joey knew that what he was doing was within the context of objectification. He made his living at it and welcomed it. He was doing a strip show and making gay porn films. He never pretended to be something he wasn’t, and most people I know respected him for this. He didn’t try to hide anything from his audience. And I think that makes a huge difference when it comes to really objectifying a man (or woman) in a negative way, or not.

Joey Stefano 20th Anniversary; Ten Sexy Men With HIV; Hot Tub 3-Way Fail

Joey Stefano 20th Anniversary

When I did a simple search for the 20th anniversary of Joey Stefano’s death I didn’t come up with much. In fact, I had to search with other words to get anything. But I’m posting about it anyway because he was such a big part of gay culture in the 1990’s. Also, a part of gay culture you don’t hear discussed much in this new world of assimilation and gay cultural appropriation. This year marks the 20th anniversary of his death back in November of 1994. 

I’ve posted about Stefano several times, but this is the post I did that talks all about him.  And I didn’t link to anyone. It’s just me this time.

One thing I remember most about him was that he was all man, which at the time to me was an inspiration. I only knew what I’d seen and heard on TV and in the movies, and most of it had to do with effeminate gay men. If you didn’t know Joey was gay you never would have thought he was. I think that’s why we got along so well. We “got” each other without having to work too hard at it.

I remember hearing about his death on the radio in 1994. I was already together with Tony for two years by then and it had been about three years since I’d last seen Joey anywhere in the Philadelphia area. But the news hit me hard. I’d always hoped he would figure things out. After his death it was disclosed that he was HIV+. I never knew this for fact when I knew him because in those days it wasn’t discussed openly. And we were never lovers. But knowing Joey, and knowing there were no serious HIV drug regimens in those days for people with AIDS, I’m sure that contributed to his drug use. I knew a few gay men back then who took on a very carefree attitude because they didn’t think there would ever be a way to stop AIDS. And they lived very fast lives. If Joey had lived, he would have been forty-four now.

And now I’d like to link to this blog authored by David Bret, a biographer who is writing a book about Joey Stefano.

A man like Joey comes along only once in a lifetime. This is the most painful book I’ve ever had to write, yet I felt that it needed to be done. It’s not going to come out for the twentieth anniversary of Joey’s death–this day is for him alone, for us to remember. Much has been written about Joey, about he spent his entire adult life with his finger pressed on the self-destruct button. No, he did not. He was a normal, healthy, and very funny young man who chose a different career to most of us, and who was inordinately good at it. He was not a junkie. Yes, he took drugs–most of us have at some time or other, and in this respect he was no different than any contemporary pop or rock star. He was just unlucky at the end. 

There have been other things written about Joey I don’t want to link to because I think they exploit him now even more than when he was alive. There’s a play out somewhere that really bothers me to the point of outrage…posthumous exploitation to get attention. But if you notice, my description of Joey isn’t that far off from what David Bret remembers…and I have never met Bret once. I didn’t even know about him until recently. I’d never even read his blog before, but I’m amazed at how we both wrote basically the same memories at completely different times.


You can read more here at Bret’s blog. And I’ll post more about the book, which sounds interesting. I think it’s the first thing about Joey I’ve seen that doesn’t exploit him and turn him into something he wasn’t. And that’s not simple to do because history will almost always be rewritten.

 Ten Sexy Men With HIV

Yesterday was World AIDS Day, and I’ve been seeing HIV get more exposure in different ways recently. One of which is that people are trying to break a lot of the stereotypes…and stigma…that goes with being HIV poz. It’s about time.

Here’s a piece where they mention 10 of the sexiest men living with HIV…most of whom I didn’t know were living with HIV. I know people say it shouldn’t matter. But sometimes I think it should matter if only to bring HIV out into the open to remove so much of the stigma. I still know gay people who will only whisper about HIV, and several who won’t even discuss it at all.

Jack Mackenroth has been shedding his clothes in the service of HIV awareness for a decade. And thank God for that. The physique model and former Project Runway contestant just raised $50,000 for the Braking AIDS Ride in New York (he posted pictures of his body scrawled with the names of major donors), and his latest project just went viral: the shower selfie #weareALLclean social media campaign that asks us to strip in the shower to demonstrate that we are all, positive and negative, “clean” and should live free of stigma. There’s something about the sly, winking attitude of Jack’s (often naked) efforts that makes him feel like the friendly, playful jock next door. And a sense of humor about ourselves is always a sexy attribute.

Of the nine others, Larry Kramer is listed, too. I didn’t know about him either. I’m not sure I’d call Larry Kramer sexy, but maybe someone else in an alternate universe might disagree with me.

The rest are here.

Hot Tub 3-Way Fail

Here’s an amusing story about three guys in Spartanburg, South Carolina who hooked up at a bar, went back to a house where one of them was house sitting for a 3-way hot tub session, and wound up fighting over which of them got paid more as male hookers. If anything, this is a great example of why I NEVER let anyone house sit or take care of my dogs. Idiots can’t be trusted.

In any event, the gay fur flew: 

But around 1:30 in the morning, Adams and Tench got into a dispute over who was the highest paid escort. As the old saying goes, three things you should never talk about on a first date are politics, religion and how much you get paid to have sex with strangers.

The argument turned physical, and Adams lost control and started hitting Tench with his hands and feet while still in the hot tub.

Tench fled the scene and called a friend, who then called the cops.

Well, Adams wound up getting arrested and I’m not sure if the home owner ever found out his hot tub was being used for 3-way hooker sex. I’m also unsure about which hooker makes the most money.

The rest is here. Some of the comments are too good to miss.
