'I've got to walk my fella to his work because he's terrified. It's just absolutely soul destroying and it's not on.'

RoadReed Cowan, the director of 8: The Mormon Proposition, wants to kill gay pride until we have full equality: "I would like to propose to the entire worldwide gay community that they cancel gay pride events until we have marriage equality. All those thousands of people who go to gay pride, those are bodies that could put on a shirt and go into the neighborhood and tell their story. We should wait until we have equality to have our party. In the meantime we volunteer the same passion and air miles and participation and really channel that same participation into our fight for equality."

    Prince Harry’s very regal semi-wood is quite stunning beneath those white pants. And I live 5 blocks from said officiously amended banners in OKC, I’ll have to check it out, see if the extra signage is removed.

  2. TANK says

    jesus…is that a sock in his speedo? LOL!

    I stand by what I said, jack. Large groups of gays aren’t as violent, on average, as large groups of straights, especially when alcohol’s involved. There are glaring exceptions that would put most straights to shame…;)

  3. TANK says

    and I’ve seen some violence in my day. It’s always bad, but I’ve seen…bad. And I’m not talking grabbing and pushing…which is violence, but, ummmmm….nah.

  4. Paul R says

    Twin Cities Pride needs to make better use of its resources and do what everyone else did to this guy: ignore him. SF Pride had some antigay protesters, and everyone ignored them too. That lunatic fringe is meaningless when outnumbered so dramatically.

    And the director of 8 can keep dreaming. As though the few hours a year that some GLBT spend at Pride is really what’s crippling our civil rights, or that many of those people would be inclined to be activists for anything besides taking off their shirts.

    About the study, I think when studies like this are presented, people (especially heterosexuals) should take note that this means that those who engage in unprotected anal sex are at higher risks of contracting HIV than those who engage in unprotected vaginal sex. This is due to the fact that the lining in the anus is much thinner than those is the vagina and penetration will more likely to tear the skin and draw blood in the anus. So, this is to say that anyone who engages in unprotected anal sex, regardless of sexual orientation, is at higher risk of contracting HIV.

    Sounds like all the trees in Central Park should be inspected for how sturdy they are.

    Ruben Cortada is HOT.

    If I were Jason Bateman I would have gotten a Droid.

    I wouldn’t kick Ruben outta bed, but admit I was a little disappointed while browsing through his pictures noticing him lighting up a cigarette in one of the shots. Sigh. :

    “I wouldn’t kick Ruben outta bed, but admit I was a little disappointed while browsing through his pictures noticing him lighting up a cigarette in one of the shots. Sigh. :”

    I don’t smoke, but this shrill and incessant whining over anybody who does almost makes me want to start, just to piss the anti-smoking fascists off.

    It’s a fucking cigarette. Yes, second-smoke is evil and all that. So’s stuffing unhealthy processed food down your gullet in between taking it bareback at the local bathhouse (as you take another hit on poppers), and buying the latest plastic crap or clothing that’s killing enslaved workers overseas through injury and poisoning.

    But no, being responsible for the collective misery of foreigners and destroying the health care system through other bad living choices is not nearly as bad as smoking. Heaven forbid.

    prince harry and nacho? this is where essential oils should mix — ginger and cinnamon. together with ruben (la verga no) cortada and benny fielhaber, they would be well on their way to allspice land. and three out of four intact? cool. that fairly represents world male population.

    of course, just like any defensive queers on this and any other gay site who feel inadequate because their parents robbed them of dominion (consent) over their most prized possession, they will complain about “head-cheese” as if intact men don’t practice personal hygiene. further, the idea that a man’s dick might smell like a man’s dick is somehow distasteful is, well, weird. that is not unlike a straight man being turned-off by the fishy and, hence, suspect smell of a woman’s vagina. it is not the woman’s snatch or the man’s uncut dick that is off-putting; it is the delicate psyche of some fragile men who think that they have been figuratively yet psychically decapitated by forces beyond their control. hence, they will rant and rave, rend their garments, and gnash their teeth. they will blur the lines between ideas and ideologies, they will make no distinction between gay rights and civil rights or anti-zionism and antisemitism.

    *Jason Bateman and, therefor, those near him were being hounded by paparazzi while waiting in line for the iPhone. The crowd was booing the paparazzi. Jason was taken inside so the photags would stop annoying everyone. *From what I understand.
