News: Kim Kardashian, Michael Bisbing, Libya, Lightning

PopeLightning  road What can asexuals tell us about ourselves? "Many react to the idea of someone having zero interest in sex as offensive. It goes against everything we understand about what makes the world go 'round, so it's an inherently confrontational concept. With this disbelief often come attempts to write asexuality off as a result of repression or sexual trauma (as of now there's no evidence of that). It becomes even more complicated for people to understand when they discover all the variation within the asexual community."

 road President Obama is the deliverer of wireless.

 road UFC star Michael Bisbing loves using "gay" as a pejorative.

CTP road "Does this God character hate the Pope? "Strong winds and sheets of rain hit the air base where he was speaking, blowing off his skullcap, shaking the stage, and knocking over at least one tent."

 road Kim Kardashian got married. For some reason this is news.

  8. "90% of tripoli is in freedom fighter's hands"

    Say What, don't you mean in Islamists' hands? Because that's where this is headed. (Not that Gadhafi is any better.) Syria is next. Oh, and the U.S. media often drop the ball.

    By the way, how many sons does Gadhafi have? Every week it seems another one gets killed or caught.

  9. Max u idiot

    The NTC is secularist and has already put out the goals and been working towards it

    a democratic parliamentary system for Libya

    get off your hate of brown people

    U should also be made aware that the Freedom Fighters have been broadcasting old tapes of the Geneva Convention specifically the parts about how to treat prisoners so their forces treat the pro gadahfi people they take hostage according to International human rights laws

    Something you goproud types and bush/cheney could learn a thing or 3 from

  10. Say What, when Libya's Arab dictatorship is ultimately replaced by an Islamic dictatorship, it will not matter one bit what your "Freedom Fighters" broadcasted during the chaotic transition.

    "get off your hate of brown people"

    Ah, yes. The beloved liberal "You're a racist!" argument. Right on cue. Seriously, are you deluded hippies even capable of coming up with a real counter-argument to anything that you disagree with? Ever?

    Posted by: Max | Aug 21, 2011 9:47:35 PM

  11. max if you quack like a duck then your a duck

    You constantly post rants in multitudes of threads about how evil people are over there

    lets see, your last was the thread about gay egyptians

    Can you stop your knee jerk reactionary BS

    Arab people are not evil by definition due to being arab

    Evolve already

  12. Did I miss something? Where is the story about the lightning???

    Posted by: JC | Aug 21, 2011 10:20:10 PM

  13. I agree with Max. Most members of AQ come from that side of Libya. It will not be long before they start throwing potato sacks over the women.

  14. really WHO?

    Since Al Queda is by the numbers predominantly


    etc on down the list with actual Libyans making up Al Queda being one of the smaller demographics in the group

    Any simple internet search would show you that BUT why would you or max ever want to look at facts

    idiocy is easier

  15. Im curious. Why is it, up until a couple of months ago the news blurbs were flush and perpendicular to photos that pertained to them and now they are completely all over the place? Its not major problem, it just seemed to flow more naturally to read the headline immediately followed by the photo. It just seems like such a backwards design change.

  16. Say What, why don't you go have a gay pride parade in Egypt and tell us how it all turns out? Bon voyage!

    P.S. JStreet is a wolf in sheep's clothing. No one is fooled but the fools who pimp it.

  17. toto@you are quite right to you wander, like me, all over the page trying to find the caption for the picture. Andy Towle does it right, when Belonsky takes over it's all over the place and though a lot of people have complained about this Belonsky seems to take stubborn pleasure in thwarting both common sense and precidence. Too bad

    Posted by: uffda | Aug 22, 2011 1:57:58 AM

  18. @TOTO: Since Andrew Belonsky has been here the past few days, I've 'suggested' that he follow Andy's format of putting the caption to the upper left or upper right side of the photos. But my suggestions have been ignored.

    Perhaps this is a good time to point out that Belonsky also dropped the ball by ignoring the death of one of the first AIDS activists, Ruth Brinker, a grandmother who founded Project Open Hand when she saw that people with HIV disease were dying of malnutrition. Project Open Hand was one of the first organizations to deliver meals to people living with HIV/AIDS. In the fiscal year 2009-2010, Project Open Hand delivered 302,544 meals to people living with HIV/AIDS. You can find Ms. Brinker's obituary here:

  19. Max

    Now I understand

    You are elderly and your perspective is colored over by your bubbie's long gone perspective. The ghettos are gone.

    Israeli and Palestinian youths are now joining in together in the protests in Israel

    The future belongs to the young, not your elderly small mindedness twisted by an even older ghetto mindset that is long gone

  20. "Asexuality" is not a sexual orientation. Nor is it the absence of sexual orientation. It is the inclination to not act on sexual orientation. At different times of our lives, any number of us may be asexual. "Asexual community"? Gimme a break; how ludicrous can you get? This is the latest attempt by a group of attention-hungry people to become the Next Big Thing in lifestyle media. Oh yes, and some of them are lying in their teeth about having no interest in sex.
