Decriminalization of Gay Sex In India; How the Media Botched Rapper Young Buck and Alleged Trans Lover; Pennsylvania Gubernatorial Candidate’s Transphobic Meme;

Decriminalization of Gay Sex In India

I’ve been following this all weekend. India has a long way to go.

Gay sex is considered taboo by many in socially conservative India, and while it no longer carries the previous punishment of up to 10 years in prison, other rights like gay marriage are likely to prove elusive.

Here’s the rest. Let’s face it. If the far right conservatives had their way here in the US, we’d be facing the same situations.

How the Media Botched Rapper Young Buck and Alleged Trans Lover

This is a good example of how the media works these days.

Hip hop artist Young Buck found himself at the center of some unwanted attention this week after a trans woman alleged she had engaged in a sexual relationship with the rapper. But it was the media’s response that was most upsetting.

Check it out, here. 

Pennsylvania Gubernatorial Candidate’s Transphobic Meme

Here’s more about the guy running for governor in Pennsylvania. I’m a full time New Hope, PA resident and I can promise you I won’t be voting for him. 

On Thursday, 6 September, Ray Zaborney, a well-known political consultant with the GOP-leaning firm retained to handle Wagner’s social media accounts, texted a meme of Caitlyn Jenner.
The meme mocks Jenner’s transition as well as Nike’s Just Do It campaign featuring black athletes like Colin Kaepernick.

Health and Lifestyle Factors With Penis Size; Can A Woman Have A Penis?; Mike Pence Once Identified As A Democrat

Health and Lifestyle Factors With Penis Size

I know it’s not as good as politics, but I find things like this highly informative sometimes.

This article gets into a few of the more clinical facts about penis size.

Also, they noted that men with penises that are shorter in size when flaccid tended to experience a greater increase in both length and girth when their penises became erect. This did not appear to be true for men whose penises were on the longer side when in flaccid state.

You can read this one, here. It’s SFW. 

Can A Woman Have A Penis?

This article tackles a few of the myths involving gender recognition as we’ve always known it to be true.  

Now, if gender/sex was one single thing, then there would be a single, definitive answer to the question, “Can women have penises?” As we’ve seen, though, it makes much more sense to think that gender/sex is not one single thing, but rather many different but related things. And that means that we can’t answer the question until we know what aspect of sex/gender we are trying to pick up on with the word “woman”.

Here’s more. I think many people need to read this, especially those who believe that gender recognition is so plain and simple. 

Mike Pence Once Identified As A Democrat

This article is fascinating because it shows how VP Mike Pence changed so many of his views over the course of time. 

Until a sudden bout of religious fanaticism, Pence, like his immigrant grandfather, supported the Democratic party. He also attended campus parties, played the guitar, maintained friendships with classmates–including women–and even joined the fraternity Phi Gamma Delta. That all changed after a religious epiphany in 1978.

You can read it all, here. According to this, Pence had a gay friend in college, and when the gay friend came out, Pence totally cut him off.

Straight Guy Sues Employer For Calling Him Gay; Tom Daley and Butt Wipes; Facebook Targets LGBT Youth With Gay Cure;

Straight Guy Sues Employer For Calling Him Gay

Here’s a good example of how some things haven’t changed all that much. 

A former guard from a Napa County jailhouse claims he was driven out of his job and ended up in a mental hospital after suffering relentless antigay harassment from colleagues and supervisors. But here’s the real kicker: he isn’t even gay.

You can read it all, here. They go into a lot more detail.


Tom Daley and Butt Wipes

It’s still nice to see things like this happening. This is proof that many things have changed.

This just in: New dads Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black are the latest brand ambassadors for Pampers.

Here’s the link.


Facebook Targets LGBT Youth With Gay Cure

Here’s another reason why I’ve never been a huge Facebook fan.

Facebook has reportedly targeted young LGBTI people with ‘predatory’ targeted advertisements for gay cure therapy.
The social media giant uses specially designed algorithms to target advertising to its users based on their online behaviours.
Here’s the rest. Someone left a brilliant comment…to which I replied in agreement.

There Are Six Different Types Of Penises; Blazing Hot Redheads All Male Calendar; More Broken Penis Stories

There Are Six Different Types Of Penises


I didn’t know about this until now. It’s totally heteronormative, but it’s still interesting all the same.

1. Banana

It’ll come as no surprise that the banana-shaped penis echoes the shape of the phallic fruit.
Curving slightly upwards as well as being longer than average, those with a banana penis also have a natural advantage between the sheets.
You can read it all, here. They even compare one to a pencil. 

Blazing Hot Redheads All Male Calendar
I love photos like this, but I also find it interesting that people are still using paper calendars. In this case, though, it’s all about the art.
The “Red Hot” brand name tells you everything you need to know.
For years, they’ve been producing calendars with the hottest gingers to grace the planet, and boy, do they deliver.
More Broken Penis Stories
This sort of thing seems to be showing up in the news more lately. 
36-year-old man learned the hard way that surgical intervention was needed when he fractured his penis having acquired what is known as an eggplant deformity – named for the appearance of the bruising pattern that develops. Though such an injury is thankfully uncommon, it can be sustained during robust and spirited sex or alternate trauma. This particular account of penile damage endured after protracted erection resulting from sildenafil (aka Viagra) use was just published in the British 
Here’s the link for the rest. It’s the American Council on Science and Health, and totally SFW.

Safe Sex Guide Refers To Vagina As Front Hole; Drag Culture TV On Netflix; California Has An Official LGBT Veterans Memorial Now

Safe Sex Guide Refers To Vagina As Front Hole

This is something new, and frankly I think we’ll be seeing more things like this in the future. I look at these things as a writer, and I find it interesting how words evolve over the course of time. Just look at the word Gay and the way that’s evolved.

A new LGBTQIA safe sex guide was published recently and it includes the term ‘front hole’ as an alternative for the word ‘vagina’.
Groups like Heathline, GLSEN, and Advocates for Youth all shared the report on their websites.
Here’s the link. It goes into more detail, and it mentions that the alternative word for breastfeeding should be chestfeeding. But not everyone is happy about this. 

Drag Culture TV On Netflix

If you’re into drag culture, this might be something you’ll want to see.

Dancing Queen will play out over eight episodes, and judging by the preview, the tongue pops will flow like milk and honey, hunty.
The World of Wonder-produced series will follow Alyssa, aka Justin Johnson, as she wears her many wigs — business owner, mentor, dancer, drag superstar, etc.

Here’s the rest.  There are a few photos, too.

California Has An Official LGBT Veterans Memorial Now

This memorial is located in Cathedral City just a few miles south of where Tony and I live in Palm Springs. I have to get photos and share them here on the blog.

California has become the first state in the US to officially recognise a memorial dedicated to LGBT+ veterans.
Governor Jerry Brown signed the LGBT+ tribute in Desert Memorial Park, Cathedral City, into law as an official state memorial on Monday (August 20).

Here’s the link. It’s interesting to note the memorial has been around since 2001. The link gives a lot of background about why it took so long to make the memorial official.

Gay San Francisco Cop’s Shocking Claims; Josie Totah Comes Out As Trans; Betsy DeVos and Transgender Bathroom Complaints

Gay San Francisco Cop’s Shocking Claims

When I read this one about San Francisco I couldn’t help thinking about the way openly gay cops were denied the right to march in a pride parade last weekend in another part of the country because the LGBTQ organizers of the pride parade decided to discriminate against openly gay police.

This is pretty bad, too.

In a lawsuit filed last Thursday, 28-year-old officer Brendan Mannix accuses members of the San Francisco Police Department of sexual harassment, sexual discrimination based on his sexual orientation, and retaliating against a whistle-blower.

Here’s more.  The San Francisco city attorney’s office declined comment. 

Josie Totah Comes Out As Trans

I hope we keep hearing about things like this.

Young actor Josie Totah, who has appeared in projects like Champions and Other People, has come out as transgender.
In a moving and honest op-ed for Time, Totah details her journey in accepting and embracing her identity.

Betsy DeVos and Transgender Bathroom Complaints
I always feel bad for the kids in situations like this.  
A number of complaints about bathroom access for transgender students have been thrown out by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, according to Politico.
Here’s more. DeVos claims she’s following the law. Unfortunately, the kids suffer.

Why Some Guys Feel Sad After Sex; More On the Sam Smith Saga; Bianca Del Rio Makes Rape Joke About Blair St. Clair

Why Some Guys Feel Sad After Sex

Here’s a link to a video that talks about why some guys feel sad after sex. There’s actually a name for it. It’s called Postcoital Dysphoria…PCD. According to this recent study, 41% of men experience some form of this.

I always believe that if these videos help only a handful of people they’re worthwhile.

If you’ve ever felt this way after sex, check out the link to the video above. And I think it might help if you tell your partner. I’ve never experienced this, but I would love to know if I was with a guy who did experience it. I’d like to talk about it and help him through it. I think I might even like the guy more if I knew he was feeling this way.

More On The Sam Smith Saga

Here’s a piece that’s defending Sam Smith after he made a negative statement about Michael Jackson. I posted about that earlier this week, and there is back story with this link.

I’m not even going to post an excerpt from this one because I don’t like where it’s going, and I find it really hard to be objective this time. I’m a Michael Jackson fan.

You can read this one, here, and then decide how you feel.

Bianca De Rio Makes Rape Joke About Blair St. Clair

Here’s another one that gets ugly, and you have to wonder what Del Rio was thinking to say something like this.

Bianca Del Rio made a horrible rape joke about Blair St Clair on Thursday night (16 August) at Montreal Pride.

Here’s part of what was said. 

She later remarks: ‘And if you weren’t raped, remember this – you’re ugly.’

Here’s the rest.  The Montreal Pride Festival Made a statement “disassociating” themselves from remarks made during the drag show. There’s a screen shot of their Facebook status.
