Eudysimelane RoadTrial resumes for killers of South African lesbian football star Eudy Simelane, targeted with "corrective rape" and stabbed to death because of her sexuality: "Men are unemployed and feel traditional male preserves — such as
football or drinking in a bar — are under attack. That was Eudy’s
crime. An aggravating factor was that she did not look like a typical
female. People are just getting killed here because they are different,
like HIV-positive people have been killed in the past. What is
important is to get a verdict which includes murder."

    The Maldives are the most magical place I’ve ever been. In Male, you see young guys walking around holding hands everywhere: But, I’m told it’s a Muslim tradition and has nothing to do with being gay. It was odd/cool to see, though.

  2. AED says

    I grew up around the Afton area. It doesn’t surprise me that there are homophobes around there. (I’m not sure where his home was, though.)

    We don’t need any more TLDs. All that will happen is a bunch of orgs (HRC, coca cola) will register a .gay domain name and then everyone will keep on using the .coms

    Tom Fords place is just miserable looking. I just don’t understand how anyone would feel at home there, it’s dark and cold and depressing looking. Now add a typical rainy/foggy London day and the interior of that place must look like a Modern/Sleek cave. I wonder if it’s cold looking in order to match his personality.

    AED,

    I grew up across the river in Hudson WI had many friends in Afton and Stillwater.

    It seems pretty violent for the area to me.

    “She’s the most experienced, most well-known candidate in the race…

    Sorry, but after last year’s democratic Presidential primary, these qualities mean very little.

  7. Paul R says

    The .gay “debate” is just further proof that ICANN is probably the most inefficient possible organization to be administering anything related to the Internet. It’s slow, bureaucratic, and profit-based. Just allow whatever TLDs anyone wants and don’t make it a money race. And don’t take several years to make every single damn decision.

    Hammond comes off like a con man. If he’s getting paid that much no wonder he wanted (still wants) to tax the neighbourhood even more. Let the millionaires and billionairse on the board pay for it.

    The highline also has more rangers than all the parks in the Bronx put together. Nothing like treating the rich and famous better than the working class and poor,

    She left him for her co-star and now she’s complaining that she has to provide support? Heche is making herself look bad.
