It's Been Said Before, But This Kind Of Shit Seems So Obvious

Look At This Queen: Andre Leon Talley Just On A Tuesday



The caption?: "Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf pussy? Andre Leon Talley was sugar, spice and everything nice at private viewing in New York City on Tuesday." Weird. Private viewing? Of what?

C/O C&D.

Newt Once Asked His Mistress To Be In An Open Relationship



From Towleroad:

"Newt Gingrich received a standing ovation in the first moments of last night's debate after getting a question from moderator John King about allegations from his ex-wife Marianne that he wanted an "open marriage."

Said Gingrich:

"I think the destructive, vicious, negative nature of much of the news media makes it harder to govern this country harder to attract decent people to run for office. I’m appalled you would begin a presidential debate on a topic like that...Every person in here knows personal pain. Every person in here has had someone close to them go through painful things. To take an ex-wife and make it two days before the primary, a significant question in a presidential campaign, is as close to despicable as anything I can imagine.”

I actually sympathize with what he's saying but I also don't. He's been involved with some shady shit and he's trying to be our president. Four wives? I think that's a little weird. AND he's desperately trying to "protect marriage."

See, Why Does Facebook Want Me To Add Muscle Queens?



I'm always amazed at how Facebook's "People You May Know" section functions. Lately, it seems I keep getting porn stars and Muscle Marys in the right corner who I can add or "Subscribe To." I'm not sure I like this subscription service they're offering. And, honestly, most trainers and porn stars aren't the most fascinating Facebook personas. But this one is just plain funny. If I'm not incorrect, attached to these handsome hunks, at the bottom, is an ad for Mittens?! That a kid I went to college with LIKES! Oh, the humanity.

A Gay Republican's Views Get Ripped Up In The Comments



Then, six days later, he posts this PIECE OF SHIT.

Okay, some personal commentary:

What's with the 'grow up and put some clothes on' mantra? Are you mature because you don't take your clothes off in public and wear a plaid robe around your own home? I will never understand the argument about how gay pride parades are somehow detrimental to the cause (or to our image). And, frankly, pride parades are not all about skin, they're more about partying and THAT's where I get a little sad; it's a day of pride and respect for how far we've come - not a rave, and not an excuse to hammered. It also just seems extraordinarily childish to do the whole 'You say WE are bigots, no YOU are the bigots' thing. I actually applaud the point he makes about accepting people's views as views and not as declarations of what should and shouldn't be. But hey, lord knows there are assholes across the entire political spectrum.

Madonna Won A Golden Globe For Best Song (Elton's PISSED)



First Elton told a reporter: "Madonna hasn't got a fucking chance." Then his boyfriend Facebooked this pearl: "Madonna. Best song???? Fuck off!!! Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in it's narcissism. And her critisism of Gaga shows how desperate she really is."

ME-OW.

"LOVE YOU EVEN MORE,even when your not Loving your self the right way I always have thought how my actions would effect you always .
Because you matter the most.
I wish you
Could tell me how to get at your side in the physical world I come in a heart beat

I think that I really don't want to know anything of your absents,and who you where with and what they said . That your past and it can't be changed ,and t takes nothing away from me so I don't want to know it called moving forward with you and something I don't want to know :)

That's called leaving a misunderstanding of your actions in the pad and no longer an issue for me .

My only issue seeing you float again, happy and now that you are truly loved no matter what ,because I accept you flaws and

Jeff

P.S it is what it is and we need each other but please believe I come at you with no
Negativity ,and it another trying to make me look cold and unstable and mean so you would stay with them."

Not That Gay: But I Sure Hate Hearing About Gluten Allergies

Remember Chris Crocker? He's Hot And Not Crying Anymore



Big ups to my boy Noah Michelson for a great interview with Crocker on the Huff Post's Gay Voices:

"In 2007 three little words -- "Leave Britney Alone!" -- arguably changed the course of popular culture.

The words were spoken by Chris Crocker, a then 19-year-old from Tennessee with an already burgeoning Internet career who regularly posted videos to YouTube and MySpace.

But it wasn't until he made and uploaded his now infamous clip defending Britney Spears after her disastrous 2007 MTV Video Music Awards performance that the world became familiar -- and enraptured -- by the video star.

In just two days "Leave Britney Alone!" racked up over four million views -- a virtually unheard of feat in the earlier days of YouTube -- and soon Crocker became known -- and parodied -- around the world. References to the video have since appeared everywhere from "Glee" to "South Park" and the clip was named Wired magazine's number one video of 2007."

You Little Shit: Christian Girl Scout Taylor Calls For A Boycott


“The real question is, why is GSUSA willing to break their own safety rules and go against its own research institute findings to accommodate transgender boys? Unfortunately, I think it is because GSUSA cares more about promoting the desires of a small handful of people than it does for my safety and the safety of my friends and sister Girl Scouts, and they are doing it with money we earned for them from Girl Scout cookies.”

Worth Posting The Entirety Of This Text: Totally Heartwarming



"Yesterday I had a pair of brothers in my store. One was maybe between 15-17. He was a wrestler at the local high school. Kind of tall, stocky and handsome. He had a younger brother, who was maybe about 10-12 years old. Thy were talking about finding a game for the younger one, and he was absolutely insisting it be one with a female charcter. I don’t know how many of y’all play games, but that isn’t exactly easy. Eventually, I helped the brothers pick a game called Mirror’s Edge. The youngest was pretty excited about the game, and then he specifically asked me.. “Do you have any girl color controllers?”

I directed him to the only colored controllers we have which includes pink and purple ones. He grabbed the purple one, and informed me purple was his FAVORITE.

The boys had been taking awhile, so their father eventually comes in. He see’s the game, and the controller, and starts in on the youngest about how he needs to pick something different. Something more manly. Something with guns and fighting, and certainly not a purple controller. He tries to convince him to get the new Zombie game “Dead Island.” and the little boy just stands their repeating “Dad, this is what I want, ok?” Eventually it turns into a full blown argument complete with Dad threatening to whoop his son if he doesn’t choose different items.

That’s when big brother stepped in. He said to his Dad “It’s my money, it’s my gift to him, if it’s what he wants I’m getting it for him, and if your gonna hit anyone for it, it’s going to be me.”

Dad just gives his oldest son a strong stern stare down, and then leaves the store. Little brother is crying quietly, I walk over and ruffle his hair (yes this happened all in front of me.) I say “I’m a girl, and I like the color blue, and I like shooting games. There’s nothing wrong with what you like. Even if it’s different that what people think you should.”

Big brother then leans down, kisses little brother on the head, and says “Don’t worry dude.”

They check out and leave, and all I can think is how awesome big brother is, how sweet little brother is, and how Dad ought to be ashamed for trying to make his son any other way."

Number 2 is "Ugh, Can't You Just Be Straight?"

Here's an excerpt from Ryan O'Connell's Thought Catalog moment:

"My first instinct is to say “Thanks” but I don’t even feel like it’s a compliment. It reflects poorly on the girl by making her look like some sad desperado living out her Will & Grace fantasy, which is something I won’t indulge her in. I’m not going to spend Saturday night with you eating ice cream and talking about how much boys suck. We’re better than that."
