  1. Chris Pratt is smokin' in many ways, kind of sorry he's falling into the mold, he was sexy being just normal.

    This just moves him into the realm of porn fantasy. Personally, I like normal guys. Shame. And not.

    Strange. Nothing else in this post was remotely interesting.

  2. Anderson Cooper meant to say that the biggest blessing of his life was that he was born rich....

    As for Ellen DeGeneres, she has promoted homophobes on her show. She sucks.

  5. Re: landmarks in NYC:: I live on Christopher street.. You would never believe with all this historic places surrounding us, they would not be affected by the Gay scene that's still prevelant with the young crowds .. This is the good/ bad that envelops this city.. Many young Gay/ transgendered people have no jobs, grow up in a family that doesn't accept their lives, thus they can walk the streets at all hours, especially in the Summers. I have no problem with this because I know the history that Christopher Street brings with it around the world not just here.. So many places are renamed Stonewall whether you believe what happened there or not.. I just feel that naming a place historical only means something to the history books not to these young minds that need our help so much more then a building

  6. Anderson Cooper has gotten a lot of flack over the years for not coming out but he's out now and hearing him frequently stating in public how being gay is one of the biggest blessings in his life is a really positive thing.
