'I suppose if you’re a gay man from Guatemala who gambles and smokes pot, you probably think that we’re onto some good ideas here,' he told his liberal colleagues in ridiculing their legislative agenda."

RoadFake signs using city logo in Copenhagen encouraged people to be "considerate" if they decided to have public sex in city park: "Sex is allowed in the park, but the sign asked people to clean up after themselves and not to have loud intercourse between 9am and 4pm. The signs carried the City Council’s logo, but it soon became clear that the council had nothing to do with them and council workers were quick to take them down. It later appeared that a group of artists were behind the stunt."

RoadCircumcision ban to get vote in San Francisco: "For several weeks, a group of individuals who call themselves "intactivists" have fanned out across San Francisco, clipboards in hand.

The intactivists surpassed their goal this week, collecting more than 12,000 signatures – 4000 more than the minimum required to make the ballot."

    The Beckhams surely didn’t steal the scene at the royal cerenomy. I mean really. Wonderful ceremony and Kate had a stunning dress.
    Princess Beatrice – what a lack of taste.

    I didn’t get the gay style-gene, but even I could dress Beatrice better. Every picture I see her in looks like a train-wreck! She’s got some beautiful features but her stylist just seems to hate her.

    Were Beatrice and Eugenie auditioning for the roles of Anastasia and Drucilla in an all-royals remake of Cinderella? I Just Don’t Get It.

    Meanwhile, I smell a religious freedom lawsuit if San Francisco bans circumcisions. It’s a very seriously-taken Jewish decree. (Not to mention that I have a personal aesthetic preference).

    Yikes! What were you thinking, Bea?

    She looks prettier with a fuller face — it complements her large eyes much better. Less makeup as well… Especially around the eyes! And her grandma should have ripped that thing off her head too.

  5. Contrarian says

    Since there is a “B” in LGBT, let me be the first, and likely only person on this blog to note how hot and sexy Kate’s younger sister Pippa looked in her form fitting dress. Wow what a figure. Kate is a stunner too and reminds me a bit of the Aussie gal who wed into the Danish royal clan. Now about that Middleton brother. I’ve never had well tuned gaydar so is he or isn’t he? Harry seemed to walk as far away from the new brother-in-law as possible.

  6. Really? White? says

    Maybe it’s just me, but the whole royal wedding thing just seemed to fall flat. Maybe because I just know she wasn’t a virgin. Anticlimactic.

    The ban on circumcision is an overreach, which is why it has no shot in hell to pass. To have no exemption for religious purposes is going to drive away a lot of votes, as well as making it an arrest-able offense for doctors who do it. If the petition left in those exemptions, and just made it a basic fine on doctors who did it beyond the religious exemptions, it could have had a shot.

    As someone who’s a fan of people who have that… certain extra something, and as someone who would have preferred have the choice whether or not I was circumsized, I have sympathy for the direction of that bill… but without those above-mentioned exemptions, it ain’t going anywhere. It’s a shame the people behind it decided to let perfection be the enemy of the good. Now when this fails, for those very reasons, it’s going to be that much harder to ever propose a similar ballot initiative again… that did include reasonable exemptions and would have a chance in hell of passing.

    Go foreskins! They serve several important purposes, including giving feedback on imminent ejaculation, and protecting the glans. It’s structure is like that of the lips. If anyone asks you why a foreskin is necessary, tell them it would be like trimming back one’s eyelids and expecting the eyeball to fend for itself as it dries out and toughens.
    I wish I’d had children so I could lead by example and not circumcise. Instead, I am the TMI lady at the baby shower, lol.
    I hope the SF group gets lots of attention for this. Cutting is cruel and worse than unnecessary. All these groups worried about greater risk of disease transmission should spend their time and money distributing condoms instead.
