The Puppy Pile; Dolce and Gabbana Douchery; Philadelphia Hate Crime Suspects

The Puppy Pile

I hope people realize that when I post about these things I’m as unfamiliar with them as the next person reading an article like this. In other words, this is a part of gay culture with which I’ve never been familiar, and most gay men I know aren’t familiar with it either. You can’t choose to be gay, but you can choose to live your life a certain way. I don’t choose to live mine this way. This whole pup thing gets attention because it deserves attention…it’s a freaking side show.

Not that I’ve pissed off all the bearded pups out there, here’s an excerpt from an article about The Puppy Pile. Yes, The Puppy Pile.

Things got ruff last weekend at Arf!, a wild night of kink, fetish, bath house disco and sleazy dance tunes. Just how ruff? You’ll have to see the pictures to find out. Honestly, we wouldn’t mind taking a dip in the puppy pile.

You can read more here. And forgive me if I sounded a little harsh above, but you rarely ever see a headline about the quiet gay couple who pay their taxes, vote, and don’t cross the lines of kink into bestiality. At least not in public.

Dolce and Gabbana Douchery

Get this one. Dolce and Gabbana designers who are both gay, Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce, recently said they don’t think certain things should be challenged. For one thing, the family structure and how it has always been perceived.

This self-loathing is priceless:

Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce, founders of luxury fashion brand Dolce and Gabbana, attacked modern families by saying ‘the only family is the traditional one.’

And they said this:

While Gabbana says he would like a family, Dolce says he does not.

‘I am gay, I cannot have a child. I guess you cannot have everything in life,’ he said.

‘Life has a natural course, some things cannot be changed. One is the family.’

The two were a couple, and then they split up. But they’ve obviously maintained a business relationship. 

And this is a perfect example of two stupid queens with too much money and not enough self-respect.  I don’t want kids. I don’t even want them in my house. But I find it impossible not to embrace the modern family and those who do have kids these days…and all it’s done for society. I think kids are much better off for it.

There’s more here, with a photo of the two old queens posing in that quasi dramatic way…because they’re so chic. I won’t be wearing them anymore.

Side note: I’m sorry for breaking my rule about going after gay people on the blog. I’ve been so good since January. But these two really deserved it.

Philadelphia Hate Crime Suspects

Remember the straight people in Philadelphia who allegedly beat up a gay male couple a few months back? One of the lawyers representing one of them claims there isn’t enough evidence to prosecute and they’re claiming innocence.

During the crime, one suspect allegedly called one of the victims ‘a, dirty, fucking faggot.’

‘All three defendants steadfastly maintain their innocence,’ Knott’s lawyer, Louis Busico, said during the hearing as reported by Frontiers Media.

The next court date is 16 April. Busico noted he would file a motion then to dismiss the charges due to not enough evidence.

I’ll follow up on this one. It’s almost all hearsay right now. You can read more about it here.

Cast of "Modern Family" Suing 20th Century Fox

When I read that the cast of “Modern Family” was suing 20th Century Fox for what allegedly boils down to more money which you can read about here, I had to wonder how smart that actually is in a time when TV has been considered a dying industry by some. Back in the day when the cast of “Friends” could command a million plus an episode, things were different…life was different…hell, cell phones were as big as regular phones. And all eyes were glued to the TV on Thursday nights.

Not so much anymore. I’m one of the few people I know with a complete cable package that has all the premium channels. And I’m not sure how long that will last because I’m tired of paying that much money each month to tune in and watch a reality show about the Hutterites. I’m not joking about this either.

I’m also not a huge fan of “Modern Family” because I’m not fond of the way they portray gay men. The gay couple in that show aren’t like any of the gay couples I know. I’m sure there are two effeminate gay men in a relationship somewhere, and I’m not bashing that or complaining about that just to be clear. I would just like to see Modern family balance the act a little and maybe have another gay couple join the cast that isn’t quite as stereo typical as the couple they have now.

We’re not all like that. I’ve written about this before and I’m speaking from my own experience as a gay man who has been in a relationship for twenty years. Yes, as I said there are gay couples like the couple in “Modern Family” and I would like to emphasize once again there’s nothing wrong with that. But it seems to be the way TV portrays gay men all the time…or for the most part. A few do get it right. “The United States of Tara” was one of those shows, and that was cancelled. “Shameless” seems to be spot on, too. In fact, “Shameless” is breaking the stereotypes. I guess what I’m trying to say is that just like all people of African descent don’t look alike (one of the most insulting stereotypes of all time in history), not all gay men speak with lisps and have limp wrists. Plain and simple.

We stopped watching “Modern Family” about a year ago, and not just because of the gay factor TVfail. We thought the storyline was getting tired and we found that half hour getting longer and longer each week. We wound up setting the DVR and trying to watch it later in the week. That wound up in “delete.”
