Omarosa Claims Pence Is Extreme; British Footballer Bares It All; Gay Twitter Falls For Chris Mazdzer

Omarosa Claims Pence Is Extreme

I’ve never been a big fan of Omarosa, but I’ve been saying this all along, too…

She said: “As bad as you all think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence. Everybody that’s wishing for impeachment, might want to reconsider their life. We would be begging for the days of Trump back if Pence became President, is all I’m saying.

“He’s extreme. I’m Christian, I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things that are like… and I’m like, ‘Jesus ain’t say that’. It’s scary.”
You can check that out, here. I personally wouldn’t want to take a chance with a Pence Administration. And whenever I see people screaming to impeach POTUS, that’s my biggest fear. And I really don’t have anything against religion or prayer. My name is not the idiot Joy Behar. I just don’t trust extremes. 
British Footballer Bares It All
Here’s one of those moments that happen once in a while on live TV.
A game between Huddersfield and Bournemouth–Huddersfield won in case you were wondering (you weren’t wondering)–became the backdrop for the real story when an unidentified substitute Huddersfield player was captured adjusting the waistband of his mesh shorts, along with whatever he was wearing underneath.
You can check this out here, and there’s a link to the uncensored video. It’s impressive. 
Gay Twitter Falls For Chris Mazdzer
I’ve seen this trending on Twitter all week. 

Last week, an Olympic striptease video introduced us to luger Chris Mazdzer.
“Oh, hi,” we said to no one in particular.
You can check the tweets out, here. He’s definitely all man.

Education Department Refuses to Deal With Transgender Students; Gay Marine Running For Office In Alabama; Perez Hilton Can’t Get A Boyfriend

Education Department Refuses to Deal With Transgender Students

This is all too familiar to me and I can’t say I’m surprised. It reminds me of same sex marriage and how almost every single politician refused to deal with it, so they let it go to the states. No one in this current administration wanted to even interpret it. They side-stepped, only this time it’s a lot worse because it’s this administration revoking President Obama’s guidance and safety for transgender students. 

The Trump administration’s Education Department will no longer investigate complaints filed by transgender students who are kept from using the bathroom that aligns with their gender identity, a department official told BuzzFeed News.

This is actually the first time anyone has spoken about a policy change. It gets more complicated and mentions Title IX, a federal law prohibiting sex discrimination. 

You can check this out, here. And with a simple search there are many more articles about it.

Gay Marine Running For Office In Alabama

In spite of what the education department just did to transgender students, they’d better pay attention because we’re not disappearing any time soon. And this is only more proof of that. 

An openly gay Marine recently made this announcement…

Nine days ago, I was approached by a dear friend who asked if I would consider running to fill the vacant seat for Alabama State House District 54. In the past week, I’ve spent many hours in conversation with family and friends, but more importantly, I’ve asked myself how can I best serve my community. On Friday, I traveled to Montgomery to complete qualifying paperwork to run. I look forward to expanding my lifetime of service as I announce my candidacy for State House of Representatives District 54. We are better together. Let’s get to work!

You can read more about it, here.  There are a few photos of him.

Perez Hilton Can’t Get A Boyfriend

Now on the lighter side of the news. And this is about as light as it gets.

It’s nearly Valentine’s Day, and Perez Hilton can’t find a boyfriend. Not only that, but he’s almost 40. The world is ending.
Since updating his dating profile last month, Hilton says he’s had zero luck meeting any guys. Part of the problem may be that he doesn’t use dating apps. Hilton says he still uses a dating website. Apps are just too inconvenient.

Here’s more. He gets into this whole long story about how he doesn’t like using hook up apps with his phone. Some of the comments are unusually mean, which is unfortunate. We shouldn’t do that to each other.

Men Who Wish They Hadn’t Been Circumcised; 6 LGBTQ Films To Watch; Boycotting Bermuda Over Gay Marriage

Men Who Wish They Hadn’t Been Circumcised 

Whenever I see articles about circumcision I can’t help but wonder. In more liberal segments of our society, especially with the PC crowd, men are taught to believe that women should have the right to choose what they do with their bodies and men should have no say in the matter. However, when it comes to circumcision, in most discussions I’ve seen, women can be highly vocal about how they feel about circumcision and they don’t hesitate to voice their opinions as loudly and clearly as possible.

It’s just interesting to watch sometimes.

With that said, here’s a piece about how men who are circumcised wish they weren’t.

Nick Hung from Omaha, Nebraska told Gay Star News: ‘Wished I had a choice.
When I am with an uncut man, sometimes we discuss the difference. How protected his head is, never over dries, so sensitive. How the slightest touch feels good.
‘I will never know that pleasure. Never have that level of sensitive awesome sensations. [Circumcision] just seems so dark ages and barbaric,’ he said.

You can check out the rest here. Men have the right to decide on whether or not they want to be mutilated. 


6 LGBTQ Films To Watch

I like everything about this. I think films like this are important to the LGBTQ community and everyone else who falls under the umbrella of LGBTQ. We are so highly underrepresented by Hollywood and the media most of us don’t even know it and we think that a movie like Call Me By Your Name is actually gay romance. That’s sad.

In 2011, the LGBTQ media arts non-profit established Frameline Voices, a monthly spotlight program that highlights stories underrepresented by Hollywood and the mainstream media by making them free for viewing on the internet.

Boycotting Bermuda Over Gay Marriage

I’ve already posted about how gay marriage was legal in Bermuda, and how they recently made it illegal again. And now I’m posting this about how to avoid Bermuda, and how to avoid supporting their tourism. It’s about 6 alternative places to go instead of Bermuda. And it’s for everyone, not just LGBTQ people. Because, as this article states, everyone cares about this now. 

“Significantly, it’s not only LGBT travelers that care about equal rights based on sexual orientation. Our research indicates many companies, consumers and travelers, including the overwhelming majority of the younger visitors powering Bermuda’s growth, care about this issue,” the Tourism Authority said in a letter.
Since Bermuda, which has a long history of homophobia, just killed its reputation among not just LGBTQ travelers but all travelers with a conscience, we’ve got you covered. Here’s a list of some island life destinations that welcome us–and marriage equality.

Mike Pence and Adam Rippon On Gay Rights; India’s Openly Gay Prince On Coming Out; Why Preferences On Hook Up Apps Are Racist

Mike Pence and Adam Rippon On Gay Rights

This is from the New York Times and it’s interesting to see it making mainstream news. I’ve been linking to smaller LGBT news outlets with this story and they don’t seem to be getting the story totally right. They’re getting it partially right, but there’s a lot more. And like most news nowadays you have to search far and wide.

In any event, here’s a more detailed version of what’s really been going on between the VP and Rippon.

As controversies go, this one seems to have it all. Mr. Rippon, a charismatic 28-year-old figure skater, newly minted gay icon and social media darling, criticized Mr. Pence for his opposition to gay rights and long-rumored support of conversion therapy, a discredited practice that proponents claim can make gay people straight. Mr. Rippon also declined an invitation to meet with Mr. Pence before the Games, his agent said.

Mr. Pence and his spokespeople have pushed back, arguing that he does not support conversion therapy, which has been discredited by the medical community and condemned by rights groups. And the snub from Mr. Rippon? They say it never happened because they never asked him to meet in the first place.

There’s a lot more here, with many more details.

India’s Openly Gay Prince On Coming Out

Here’s more about Prince Manvendra from India. It’s a riveting story because it shows you what they’re still doing to gay people.

The Indian prince, who is the son and probable heir of the Maharaja of Rajpipla in Gujarat in western India, was forced to shroud his sexuality from public view for years. Marrying a princess of Jhabua State in Madhya Pradesh in 1991, Prince Mavendra lived a lie and his matrimony remained unconsummated for its entirety.

Here’s the link.

Why Preferences On Hook Up Apps Are Racist

Here’s more in the ongoing discussion with hook up apps and alleged racism. I use the word alleged because I know how strongly some feel about this. A lot of guys don’t like being labeled racist because they have certain sexual preferences…or types…when it comes to the men they date.

This is where structural racism comes into play. Because preferences are actually shaped by learned values. When you’re judging a person based solely on their racial background, you’re acting on generalizations you’ve learned to associate with that person’s appearance or heritage. You can’t say it’s their personality because you shut them down before you even got to know them.

Here’s the rest. It’s hard for me to comment because I never had any of these set preferences with regard to race, so I don’t totally understand it on a personal level. It just never occurred to me to not date a guy because of his race.

Ten Things You Didn’t Know About Your Penis; The Winter Olympics’ Giant Robot of Fire Penis; Bermuda Outlaws Gay Marriage

Ten Things You Didn’t Know About Your Penis

There hasn’t been much penis news lately, but I did find a few things recently that looked interesting.

Penises are born ready. It is common for babies to exit the womb with an erection. Even before the moment of birth, ultrasound scans sometimes show a fetus with a fully formed erection.
According to a study from 1991, fetal erections occur most commonly during random eye movement (REM) sleep. And, they can happen a number of times each hour. No one is quite sure why, but it might just be our body’s way of testing things out and keeping them running correctly.

Here’s the rest. The other nine are just as enlightening.

The Winter Olympics’ Giant Robot of Fire Penis

Some people are joking about the contraption they used to light the Olympic cauldron. They’re claiming it’s too phallic.

Stunned viewers watching on television around the world had only one thing on their minds.
One Twitter user wrote: “Why did South Korea choose to light the Olympic torch with some sort of flaming robot penis?”
Here’s the rest. They have photos, and it’s SFW. 
Bermuda Outlaws Gay Marriage
I remember reading about a lawmaker in Australia who didn’t want to rush legal gay marriage because she believed it was important to make the law so solid that no one could ever take it away once we got it. She took a lot of criticism for that, but I always thought she was on the right track. This bothers me a great deal. 
Bermuda has forbidden same-sex marriage, only nine months after legalizing it, in what advocates for gay and lesbian rights called a disappointing setback.
Same-sex marriage became legal in Bermuda, a British overseas territory, in May as a result of a ruling by the island’s Supreme Court.

Here’s the rest.

Gay Olympian Adam Rippon Refuses Vice President; Andrew Christian Model Topher DiMaggio and Sex Assault Allegations; Barrett Pall On the Underbelly of the Male Modeling Industry

Gay Olympian Adam Rippon Refuses Vice President

Update: Rippon has agreed to speak with Pence, but after the Olympics are over. It should be interesting. 

There have been several stories going around about gay Olympians who are not thrilled with the fact that Mike Pence is leading the US Delegation to the Olympics. But Rippon was the only one the Vice President reached out to in person.

And Rippon refused to even speak with Pence.

Pence “was so concerned about the criticism” from Rippon “that his staff went to the extraordinary length of asking the U.S. Olympic Committee to set up a conversation between the two — an offer Rippon turned down,” reports USA Today, which broke the initial story as well.
USA Today cited anonymous sources in the latest story, published Wednesday, but Rippon’s agent, David Baden, said Rippon would have no further comment, and Pence’s press secretary, Alyssa Farah, did not respond to the paper’s request for comment.
Here’s the rest. Rippon has also said he will not attend post Olympic events at the White House.
From what I recall, it wasn’t that long ago that politicians like Pence were anti-gay marriage, wanted no equal rights or protections for gays, and even supported things like conversion therapy. Of course we’re not thrilled about that.We didn’t forget. But I wish Rippon had at least spoken to Pence to find out what he had to say. I think that would have been interesting.  
Andrew Christian Model Topher DiMaggio and Sex Assault Allegations
While people are defending a film that’s celebrating a predatory sexual relationship between a 17 year old barely legal boy and an older man, the Andrew Christian brand has been dealing with its own sexual assault scandal. 
Underwear brand Andrew Christian has placed model and brand ambassador Topher DiMaggio on “indefinite suspension” while they investigate the many claims against him ranging from verbal harassment to sexual assault to rape.
Here’s more. The sexual assault thing doesn’t seem to want to end any time soon. I wonder who’s next. 

Barrett Pall On the Underbelly of the Male Modeling Industry
Considering the previous link, this one seems like perfect timing…sadly.  
 Pall also talks about the sexual misconduct accusations lodged against well-known fashion photographers Bruce Weber and Mario Testino.
He says that often, when it comes to unwanted sexual advances, the attitude seems to be “you’re gay, and they’re gay, and you should be OK with this, and you should like this.”

Ryan Murphy’s Political Musical Comedy; A Republican’s Transphobic Ad; Taking Sexy Instagram Selfies

Ryan Murphy’s Political Musical Comedy

Ryan Murphy is doing an hour long musical comedy series on Netflix that will be focused on politics. I can’t help wondering how this will work out for him. I know I’m finished with politics. My husband, Tony, is finished with politics. Most people I know are finished with politics. So it should be interesting to see how this is received and who’s going to watch it. 

Platt plays a wealthy, aspirational politician, Payton, hailing from Santa Barbara, California.
Each season will revolve around a different political race.
You can check this out, here.  I hope it’s all parody and escapism, and not too realistic. 


A Republican’s Transphobic Ad

This is about a highly questionable transphobic ad that was run by one Republican candidate running for Governor in Illinois.

It portrays various actors taking on the roles of a transgender woman, a feminist at the Woman’s March, and more.
In the video, they sarcastically thank Governor Rauner for numerous bills.
At the end, they simply say: ‘Thank you for betraying Illinois Republicans.’
Here’s the rest. The chairman of the Illinois Republican party issued a statement denouncing the ad and stating that it does not reflect the party of Lincoln.

Taking Sexy Instagram Selfies
I like Instagram for many reasons, but I don’t like it for one or two. One is that I see so many questionable “sexy” photos that I often want to gag and roll my eyes so hard I fall sideways. People who do this weird sexy photo thing don’t seem to have a clue that the rest of us are wondering WTF?
In any event, maybe this will help. It’s not bad advice. 
A little gesture can add a lot. Matthew Noszka gives us a little behind-the-scenes peek at the male-modeling lifestyle with a carefree gesture of rocking on, or possibly hooking horns. He also reassures our concerns about his strenuous workload by revealing that he has palm trees & sun in his future, and beyond that the physical deterioration of the body that will one day claim us all.
There’s more, here.  I also think that instead of taking sexy pics, take some pics of your real life. People love seeing those pics. People are curious about other people.

Awkward Celebration and Dishonesty and Disappointment Of "Call Me By Your Name"; What Is Inverse Rape; $4 Million Listing With Sex Dungeon

Awkward Celebration and Dishonesty Of Call Me By Your Name

In the 1990s a group of us drove into New York to see the movie, Priscilla Queen of the Desert. It was exciting because for most of us that’s the first time we actually saw a movie with gay content in a real live movie theater…where you could buy popcorn and be just like everyone else in the straight world going to see a movie about straight people. We had to wait years for that experience to happen again with Brokeback Mountain. With a few exceptions, there hasn’t been much since then.

With that said, I recently had a discussion with someone about the movie Call Me By Your Name and it was interesting because they didn’t seem to see anything wrong with a barely legal 17 year old boy having a sexual relationship with an older man. So I did some basic searches and I came across a few pieces that other people wrote that explain how I feel whenever I see someone praising Call Me By Your Name as a love story for gay people. I’d rather just link now to someone else’s opinion at this point. 

Here’s one:

 I am not certain how some journalists can label Call Me By Your Name a tender love story. The novel and now film portray an older man consummating a relationship with a teenage boy. While Elio’s father may “approve” of his son’s relationship with Oliver this story is just that, a fictitious work that attempts to capture how people with same-sex attraction experience love, intimacy and human touch. Such fictitious ruminations do not represent the real world experiences of many LGBT youth. 

You can read this one here.

Then there’s this:

Call Me by Your Name,” the new film by Luca Guadagnino, is a deftly directed, beautifully photographed, wonderfully acted master class in sexual predation and abuse.
The lush, dream-like movie chronicles a summer romance between 17-year-old Elio and his father’s hunky 24-year-old graduate assistant, Oliver. Although many reviewers touch on the problematic “age gap” between them, for the most part, they minimize those concerns and lavish praise on the movie. (“An erotic triumph,” says one; “a romantic marvel,” says another.)
The problem isn’t with the movie itself, or the story. The problem is the way the movie is being marketed and promoted…and even described. There’s no way anyone’s going to convince me that it’s okay for an older man to have a sexual relationship with a 17 year old boy and call it a normal love story.
What Is Inverse Rape?
I’ve been posting about how some people are getting tired of seeing racist remarks on hook up apps like Grindr. It’s created a hot discussion lately on more than a few web sites. 
This is from Urban Dictionary, verbatim:
Refusing to date someone you’re not attracted to. Doing so is seen by some as bigotry and promoting discriminatory abuse, that forcing people to date outside their personal preferences is the only way for society to progress.
Asian Girl: “Wanna go out?” 
Gay white dude: “Sorry, not my type.” 
Asian Girl: “THAT’S RACIST! Don’t Inverse Rape me!”
You can check this out here. And if you google inverse rape you’ll find more articles. 
$4 Million Listing With Sex Dungeon
I always find it amusing that things like this are so foreign to most people. I’ve known gay people who had rooms like this in their homes, only most of them refer to them as their “playroom.” 
But the real estate company fails to mention one especially “commanding” feature that’s included in the purchase: a fully-operational sex dungeon.
As Secret London uncovered, the seller is ‘Unkut Kurt,’ owner of gay London kink club The Hoist, and he’s turned the basement of the lovely home into quite the conversation piece:

Bisexual Model Comes Out; Google Blocks Gay Dating App; House of Cards Without Kevin Spacey

Bisexual Model Comes Out

There’s been a lot in the news about bisexual people this week. And I think it’s long overdue.

Instagram famous and popular model Reece King has confirmed he is bisexual, in an interview with Gay Times.
King has spoken about his sexuality on his social media before. But now he has reconfirmed his identity after being fed up of being asked about it on social media:
Here’s the rest. I dated a bisexual guy once. He was a great guy. 

Google Blocks Gay Dating App
Apparently, the Indonesian government doesn’t like the gay dating app, Blued, and Google has blocked it as per their request. 
The government wanted Blued shut down because it believed it contravened the country’s anti-pornography laws.
Google would not reveal whether it would comply with the government’s request to block the remaining apps.

House of Cards Without Kevin Spacey
Like many other people out there, I’m glad to see that House of Cards is still in production, but without Kevin Spacey. I’m tired of Hollywood hypocrisy. It’s time to start calling them by their names. 
Kevin Spacey? Who needs him? Not House of Cards, it turns out, as Netflix announced it is carrying on with production of the series without its now disgraced, former star.
Here’s the rest. They’re working on getting a few new big names for the series.
