I’ve actually heard this “term” in a couple of places: manspread. It’s what happens when a guy spreads his legs in public, especially on a subway, and takes up too much room. It’s considered rude by some. This is a link to another link at Time where there’s a short rant about it.
Moylan says that men who spread their legs on the subway take up too much room, and it’s unfair to other passengers.
“As a human male who possesses a penis, I can say that there is no possible way that your package is that big,” he writes. “And if you have a package so large – as in an actual parcel – that is making you sit like this, you probably should do yourself and the world a favor and spring for a cab.”
I disagree. If you sit too long with your legs too close together it gets downright painful…unless, of course, Moylan doesn’t have much going on between his legs. It’s a natural process. When men sit they automatically spread their legs for obvious reasons. And while I’m sure some men can sit with their knees clamped together, most can’t.
However, this link isn’t totally about a boring not so funny piece from Time Magazine. This is why I didn’t directly link to Time. You can also see a few excellent photos of manspreads from a gay POV. I sometimes think this is why dark sunglasses were invented.
Kirk Cameron Teaching How To Act With Gays
When you read things like this you have to wonder if they’re meant to be taken seriously. Ultra Christian right winger and former child star of the TV sitcom world, Kirk Cameron, is now giving pointers on how to behave around gay people.
A video has surfaced of a (partially out of context) highlight reel from one of Kirk Cameron’s appearances on a wing-nut Christian channel called The Way Of The Master Television that is disturbing even by his standards.
“If we fail to be blunt and straightforward about that sin, we’re doing a disservice to our gay friends.”
There’s more here, with a link to a Christmas film Cameron just released. I have to wonder about him. I really do. I used to think he was so hot when I was just a kid. It just doesn’t make sense and if it doesn’t make sense the odds are it’s most likely not true. In other words, it’s not easy to get a part (or any attention at all) if you’re a former child actor with limited talents from the TV sitcom world and sometimes you do what you have to do.
Best Gay Teen Romance
This looks interesting. It’s being called the best gay teen romance ever. It’s a film by Daniel Ribeiro and it’s titled, The Way He Looks. (Notice, it’s not entitled…it’s titled…I see that a lot lately and the difference between the two words is important. In other words, a book or a film is “titled” and a person with a bad attitude usually feels “entitled.” You don’t look so hot if you confuse the two.)
It’s been winning awards and acclaim everywhere — and it’s now playing in theaters across the country. Is Daniel Ribeiro’s new Brazilian gay teen drama The Way He Looks the best gay teen romance ever? Here’s a select A-Z list of top contenders — running the gamut from this year’s other hot new gay teen release, the Dutch track team romance Boys to the 1978 Danish classic, You Are Not Alone. Enjoy the trailers and chime in with your votes and write-in candidates in the comments below (and click thru on the links to visit the GoWatchIt.com pages where you can find out where to watch them all).
