LGBT Americans Are Poorer Than Straight People

I always wonder about this kind of study for one valid reason. How do they actually know who’s LGBT or not? Not everyone is out of the closet and willing to admit they are LGBT. However, it’s still interesting because a lot more LGBT people are out of the closet than ever before. So we can’t dismiss it either.

LGBT+ people in the US are more likely to be poor than straight people, according to a new study.
The study, which was published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, found that lesbian and bisexual women were the worst off.
Sexy Pics of Folsom Street Fair
I have to admit that one of the things I’ve always wanted to do is go to the Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco. It’s just never been convenient (or realistic) for me. But it always sounds like fun.
As summer wanes, the people of San Francisco come together once again for the world famous–and infamous–Folsom Street Fair. Launched in 1984, the festival became an international sensation, attracting 400,000 guests and rising each year.
Here’s the rest. All pics are SFW. You’ll enjoy them. 
Pakistani Trans Woman Burned Alive
This is unthinkable for most of us. When a trans woman refused the sexual advances of 4 men, they burned her alive. 
The attack took place on Thursday, 6 September. This unidentified person was misgendered in news reports.
The victim suffered from burn injuries on 80% of her body. She died while in transit to the hospital.
Gay Sex Ban In Former British Colonies
Here’s more LGBT news on the Global Front. It seems we’ve been hearing about these things a lot more lately, which I hope continues. 
The harshest anti-gay laws in the world, including some carrying the death penalty, exist in the Middle East and weren’t inherited from the British. But in many former colonies in Africa, Asia and the Caribbean, conservative political parties and religious groups have resisted efforts to repeal the old laws.

The Most Insane Penis Stories; Encounters With HUGE Penises; Penis Stories From Reddit

The Most Insane Penis Stories

Here’s something I found that I thought was worth sharing. My Facebook friends won’t get it, but I know my Internet followers enjoy these posts, and that’s why I do them. The majority of my hits in the last ten years have always come from random Google searches, not from romance readers or people who follow me on social media. And I like that, and I like reaching people from all over the world. That’s the only reason I keep blogging.

In any event, this is a year old, but it’s from Men’s Health so it’s totally SFW, and the stories are timeless.

This year we also addressed why your groin feels like a bag of worms (and why that’s bad), how a penis piercing will change your sex life, and why you might get pearly penile papules. And after all that, there was still more. Here are ten crazy stories that prove 2017 really was the year of the…

Here’s the rest.

Encounters With HUGE Penises

Here are a few stories from Buzz Feed readers about their personal encounters with huge penises.

A little while ago I was pretty much IN LOVE with this guy that appeared on my favorite reality TV show. I was a fan and would watch his Instagram live every chance I got. One day he noticed me from a comment I made and sent me a DM. We exchanged numbers and ended up developing a long-distance relationship, and he sent me a dick pic that pretty much made me choke on my coffee.

There’s a lot more here.  

Penis Stories From Reddit

This is more entertaining than it is factual. But that’s how they roll over at Reddit and it’s hard to ignore sometimes. I thought this one was amusing. 

So there I am, sitting on top of my friend’s shoulders with a mammoth boner resting on the back of his neck. He then realizes what’s going on and lets out a loud “What the f*ck?!” Public humiliation and social awkwardness ensue.”

You can check that out at this link.

California Won’t Push Gay Conversion Therapy Ban; Apple Blocks Gay Pride Watch Face In Russia;The Briggs Initiative: Gay History

California Won’t Push Gay Conversion Therapy Ban

This is dismal. I find it hard to believe that gay conversion therapy even exists in the first place.

A California lawmaker said Friday he is ending his effort this year to pass a bill declaring gay conversion therapy a fraudulent practice.

Here’s more. 

Apple Blocks Gay Pride Watch Face In Russia

I wish I could say that things like this surprise me, but the truth is they don’t anymore. In fact, I expect them. Companies like Apple get away with anything they want these days, because they know they can.

The self-censoring of the gay pride watch face on the Apple Watch is a shocking discovery considering how big a supporter Apple is of LGBTQ rights. Yet iOS developer Guilherme Rambo found evidence that the pride Apple Watch face is “hardcoded to not show up if the paired iPhone is using the Russian locale.”

You can read this, here. 

The Briggs Initiative: Gay History

Being that it’s so hard to find any gay history anywhere, I jump at the chance to link to these things. I think this is an excellent example of the battles we’ve been fighting for years. And I also learned a few things I didn’t know before. 

In 1978, State Sen. John Briggs put an initiative on the ballot that would have mandated the firing of any gay or lesbian teacher in California public schools, or any teacher who supported gay rights (the term LGBT wasn’t used back then). Thanks to a Herculean effort by California grassroots activists — Harvey Milk, Cleve Jones, Sally Miller Gearhart, hundreds of others — Briggs’s Proposition 6, popularly known as the Briggs Initiative, was resoundingly defeated, by more than a million votes. It was the first time voters had rejected an antigay measure.

Here’s the link to this one. I find it interesting to note that one of the people who helped defeat the Briggs Initiative was former President Ronald Reagan. He actually published something in the newspaper that denounced the measure. It’s a fascinating article. You should check it out.

A White Poet’s Failed Attempt At Black Vernacular; San Francisco’s Male Strip Club Closes; CrossFit Welcomes Trans Athletes

A White Poet’s Attempt At Black Vernacular

This goes much deeper than the headline of this posts suggests. You know how I’m always talking about gay culture being appropriated by straight white people, but no other culture is. Well, I’ve been wrong. I truly didn’t know this kind of thing was still happening.

This one even mentions Scarlett Johansson.

That debate shows no signs of abating. Earlier this month, after intense criticism, a theater in Montreal cut short the run of a production by the director Robert Lepage that featured mostly white actors playing black slaves. A week later, the actress Scarlett Johansson withdrew from playing a transgender role after an online outcry.

Here’s the rest.  This debate is not going away any time soon. Marginalized groups, including LGBT people, are tired of being appropriated and it’s been building for very long time.

San Francisco’s Male Strip Club Closes

Here’s another one.

Despite record-setting profits, San Francisco’s iconic and last male strip club Nob Hill Theatre will close its doors after 50 years of business on Sunday, August 19. 
Owners Larry Hoover, 65, and Gary Luce, 63, plan to retire to Palm Springs, Bay Area Reporter confirmed, and the building’s new owner will not be using it for an adult club. 

CrossFit Welcomes Trans Athletes
Here’s something else I think we’ll see happening more often. 
Starting next year, transgender CrossFitters will be allowed to compete in the annual CrossFit games. The 2019 registration form will recognize gender identity instead of sex assigned at birth.
Good for CrossFit. They obviously “get” it. The old days are coming to an end.

Summer Penis Growth and Hot Weather; Man Without Penis Uses Unknown Sex Object; "Death Row Sissy" Scott Peterson and Radar Online

Summer Penis Growth and Hot Weather

I’ve wondered about this sometimes. Not often. But it has crossed my mind. Does the penis actually get bigger in the summer? And I can’t be the only one who’s been wondering.

What is summer penis? So glad you asked. According to a handful of Reddit users, summer penis sets in during warmer months, when rising temps allegedly make their penis appear bigger. Or, as Tracy Moore put it in a MEL Magazine article that brought all of this to everyone’s attention in the first place, it’s “an elusive phenomenon that answers to the sway of the seasons. No barbell can boost it; no foodstuff can fill it. Summer penis is a temporary dick fluctuation that, thanks to the heat and warmth, gives you a months-long leg-up on shaft size.”

There’s a lot more, here. It’s a very informative piece, and they consulted with a doctor from the Mayo Clinic. 

If I find more on this, I’ll post about it.

Man Without Penis Uses Unknown Sex Object

I have to admit I don’t totally understand this one.

A MAN with no penis used an “unknown object” to have sex with two girlfriends – who had no idea he was missing his manhood.

We’re not talking about one night stands. These people were in relationships. 

Ms Cockburn said: “The accused was in a relationship with one of the women between May 2013 and January 2016 and they first had sex in May 2013.

It’s very bizarre. Here’s the rest. I can’t tell you much about anything in life, but I can be certain of one thing as far as I’m personally concerned. If I haven’t seen his penis by the second date, we’re heading directly into the friendzone. Plain and simple. No questions about it. 

“Death Row Sissy” Scott Peterson and Radar Online

Here’s another one of those “it’s hard to believe this kind of thing is still happening” pieces.

Radar Online is back at it again, publishing more outrageously homophobic and salacious “reports” about celebrities and other public figures. This time it’s concerning convicted killer Scott Peterson.

You can read about this, here. I’d rather not go into detail about it.

Zakar Twins and Sexual Assault; Monica Lewinsky Sings "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"; Throwing Eggs At Gays In Wilton Manors

Zakar Twins and Sexual Assault

The Zakar twins are male models, and they recently brought sexual assault allegations against photographer, Rick Day.

Zach recounts a similar story, sharing that, “Before we start shooting, [Day] bluntly says: ‘I’m going to shoot you, then you’re going to make me shoot.’ I nervously laughed because I didn’t know if he was serious or not.”

The rest is here. 

Don’t miss the comments. 

Monica Lewinsky Sings “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”

I’ve never been to Club Cumming, but I think I would love it. I love things like this.

Alan Cumming had a pretty big guest at his New York City bar, atply titled Club Cumming, on Monday (23 July) night. It was none other than Monica Lewinsky.
The anti-bullying advocate was at the bar celebrating her 45th birthday and she ended up on stage herself.
But not before the whole crowd sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to her. She tweeted out a video of the moment, calling herself a ‘lucky girl’.

Here’s more. There’s a great video, too. She’s actually pretty good, and the pianist is excellent. 

Throwing Eggs At Gays In Wilton Manors
For those who don’t know, Wilton Manors is the ultimate gay neighborhood in Florida. So it’s hard to believe something like this could happen there. 
WILTON MANORS, Fla. – Brian Carter said he and two friends were standing outside of Gym Bar inWilton Manors Monday Night when someone started throwing eggs at them.
“I mostly just heard the yelling and was pelted right away,” Carter said. “It was a pretty heavy hit right here, but it splattered so much and it hit a couple other people.”

Children With No Gender At All; "Rub andTug" May Be Scrapped After Scarlett Johansson Dropped Out; Cuba and Gay Marriage

Children With No Gender At All

I’m curious about this one. I don’t think it’s ever been done before either, at least not until recently.

Nate and Julia Sharpe are raising their three-year-old twins with no gender at all. Coined “theybies,” the couple do not reveal the biological sex of their children to anyone, including the children themselves. The couple are the center of a new report from NBC News, exploring the world of gender-free parenting that many millennial are beginning to use.

Here’s the rest. There are more parents doing this, too. There’s a Facebook group for people with theybies with over 200 members. 

While I think this is a little extreme, I think it’s wonderful that we’re slowly moving toward breaking down all gender stereotypes. 

Rub and Tug” May Be Scrapped After Scarlett Johansson Dropped Out

I find it hard to believe that there isn’t a transgender man out there who could play a transgender male character in a movie. In fact, I don’t believe it. 

 Rub & Tug, a film about a trans man named Dante ‘Tex’ Gill, may be scrapped after Scarlett Johansson stepped down from the lead role.

Here’s more. They go into a lot more back story, and they explain why Johansson backed out of the role. Some of the comments are disturbing, though. It’s amazing to see so many who simply do not understand why Johansson backed out. 

Cuba and Gay Marriage

This sounds promising for LGBT people in Cuba.

The draft of Cuba’s new constitution opens the path to same-sex marriage, a government official said on Saturday, which would make the country that once persecuted homosexuals an unlikely leader in lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights.

You can read more, here. It’s short, but gives a few good details.
