Joel Connelly: Thank You

CB065332If you care about gay rights, you need to read the following column by Joel Connelly of the Seattle PI. It’s painful to read the “Soundoff” section at the bottom of the article because people can be so hateful. But, that’s what free speech affords so I can’t complain. What I can do, however, is continue to champion people who write moving, insightful, and unbiased articles that help important causes that I care about. 

Homophobia is the malaria of societal diseases: It appears to be on the wane but then re-emerges in full fury.

At the polls 30 years ago, Seattle became the first major American city to reject a rollback of ordinances forbidding discrimination against gays and lesbians.

Juiced at turning back chanteuse Anita Bryant, foes of the measure marched past Mormon-owned KIRO-TV, whose president Lloyd Cooney editorialized in support of the rollback.

We’ve supposedly had three decades of social progress. On Tuesday of last week, however, several states voted to impose and re-impose discrimination against one group of Americans.

Arkansas voted a ban on gay couples adopting children. Arizona and Florida approved bans on gay marriage. In the most closely watched contest, California narrowly approved Prop. 8, overturning a California Supreme Court ruling legalizing marriage for same-sex couples.

Curiously, these discriminating decisions took place as voters handed the religious right its head elsewhere in the land. Continue reading

Daily Hotness – Marco Dapper

Introducing Marco Dapper, an actor who was in Eating Out 2, no, I didn’t see it either. But no matter, he’s hot as hell and after the jump, you can see a whole lot more of him – needless to say, it’s NSFW and that means NOT SAFE FOR WORK!

Hillary Clinton To Work With Obama?

Now, this would be excellent news! 

Sen. Hillary Clinton emerged on Thursday as a candidate to be U.S. secretary of state for Barack Obama, months after he defeated her in an intense contest for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Putting Clinton, wife of former President Bill Clinton, in the position could help heal whatever lingering divisions remain in the Democratic Party after her bitter battle with Obama.

‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Is Heading Towards A Beat-Down

kim-zolciakApparently some stuff went down between Penthouse Pet-wannabe Kim and Lisa Wu Hartwell at the reunion or something, and it’s gettin’ ugly. Details are fuzzy, and I thought these girls were friends, but apparently something hit Lisa the wrong way and she went from ZERO to CRAZY in no time flat! 

In the voicemail, Lisa says, “I am not the one. I am not Sheree and I am not NeNe. You really don’t know who I am, so I think you need to call me. And I might just be coming to your house.”

Ding ding ding! Catch the video of the voicemail listening party here, and don’t you just love the attorney?lisa-wu-hartwell

Pregnant Man – Pregnant Again

I could care less about the fact that this dude can give birth (well, maybe that’s not entirely true), but he does need to slow his roll just a bit. Having a baby in June of 2008 and then having another in June of 2009 is a bit much. I can’t keep up with which baby he’s talking about in the upcoming Barbara Walter’s special- the segment runs on 20/20 Friday, November 14th.

Maybe my next business idea will be to design maternity ware for men b/c someone needs to help this guy out! No one is exempt when they run around looking like the unibomber.

Another Leaked Kanye Track – See You In My Nightmares (w/ Weezy)

It’s kind of like when you buy that BIG GIFT for yourself for Christmas three weeks early and the rest of the month you’re just like ‘ho-hum, whatever’.  Not the song of course, although it’s just OK – I guess I’m just no longer surprised at how many songs are leaked these days. 

Not the official video by any means, but I’ll update as available – promise!

Best and Worst Bond Songs

bond-themeTime magazine put together a list of the best and worst James Bond songs and as a non-oldschool Bond fan, what I do know is that the song has to be timeless, appropriate to the thematic element of the film, and have a certain showy appeal. Do the best ones have that? You tell me.

Check out the list here.
