Andrew Christian models reflect on Pride, Ian Thorpe is good since coming out, Olympic cyclist versus a toaster
Sir Patrick Stewart is a longtime supporter of LGBT rights, but when asked how he felt about the baker in Belfast who had been found guilty of discrimination for refusing to make the Bert & Ernie gay marriage cake, he didn’t go the way one would expect. He admits it’s a “deliciously difficult subject,” but he “Finally I found myself on the side of the bakers. It was not because it was a gay couple that they objected, it was not because they were celebrating some sort of marriage or an agreement between them. It was the actual words on the cake they objected to. Because they found the words offensive. And I would support their rights to say no, this is personally offensive to my beliefs, I will not do it. But I feel bad that it cost them £600 or whatever…”
Let’s get the Duggar interview out of the way. Gawker ripped apart everything they said better than I ever could, and the comments were even fun to read. TV Guide, a notoriously conservative publication in the world of entertainment, said the interview backfired. The only winner may have been Fox News, which pulled in 3.1 million viewers to watch them try to justify keeping their daughters at risk and splitting hairs by a matter of months on if their son was a pedophile. And Mike Huckabee, who so strongly defended the family a week ago, has scrubbed all mentions of them from his campaign website.
Montel Williams continues to throw observations at the Duggars that Megyn Kelly was too cowardly to ask. “After watching the Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar interview, I’m just stunned. They are in denial. There is something very sinister beneath the surface. These are people who seemingly minimize what happened in their home and essentially sent a message to their daughters to smile, nod and forgive. Nothing about these people is real. Nothing about these people isn’t hypocritical.”
Senate Republicans have killed a bill that would have extended military veterans benefits to spouses of same-sex couples who do not live in states that recognize marriage equality. Most federal benefits are available to same-sex couples, but veterans benefits have phrasing that makes the place of residence the decided factor, not place of celebration. So the Republicans support the troops, unless they’re gay. Hopefully, all their hateful grandstanding will be moot in a matter of weeks.
Drake Bell has apologized for his remarks that he was still going to call Caitlyn Jenner “Bruce.” Honestly, I never thought he said it with malice like some other people did, but just supreme ignorance. “I sincerely apologize for my thoughtless insensitive remarks. I in no way meant to hurt or demean those going through a similar journey. Although my comments were made in innocence, I deeply regret the negative effect they’ve had on so many.”
Alabama’s attempt to get rid of marriage licenses completely rather than give them to same sex couples has died the death it deserved after even supporters noted that it was being rushed through and unintended consequences couldn’t be known.
I had never really given it much thought, but Slate spent a couple of thousand words making a decent case for the fact that gay sex in movies and television has a real problem with realism, and that starts with the lack of lube. The one-spit bone is a common trope, and most of us know that’s not really practical. I’m not saying you always need lube like they seem to be saying, but let’s be honest, one drop of spit probably isn’t going to do the job. Maybe direct application of spit over several minutes will get you there, but Brokeback Mountain style isn’t practical in most cases. And only niche programming like Looking and Queer As Folk seem to even know what lube is.
Police in Manchester received a call about a man running down the street naked. When they found him, the man said he’d followed another man down to the river for a quick hookup, and after undressing, the man had snatched his clothes, wallet and keys and run off with them. Police found him something to wear and sent him on his way. So remember folks, there are plenty of unexpected risks to a quick hookup.
You can back the Kickstarter for Lovely, which is a connected cock ring that helps keeps you chubbed thanks to a vibrate function. But the real innovation here is that it measures the speed and force of your thrusts, and how many calories you burned. It will “score” your bang, and based on the stats it gathers, suggest sex positions that might work best for you the next time. Get in early and you can have one for $99. Just think, if this thing becomes popular, you can put your thrust score in your Grindr profile. It might be more effective than that headless pic of your abs.
Jim Parsons is finally sitting down with James Lipton for Inside the Actors Studio on June 18. He covers his work in theater, The Big Bang Theory, and his “boring” relationship with Todd Speiwak.
Mike Huckabee is confused by topless women. He says that he keeps hearing that British tabloids featuring topless women is exploitative, but then you have the #FreeTheNipple campaign with female celebrities exposing their breasts. I mean, the obvious answer is who has control of the situation. One is targeted at men, and the other is about taking control. But that’s too much for Huckabee. He thinks we solve it a simple way, by banning everyone from going out without a shirt. “Just tell the men to put on a darn shirt when they go out in public.” You know who else advocates that? Russia! It’s getting harder and harder to tell a Republican from a Russian autocrat.
Ian Thorpe says that the period since he came out has been interesting. “…because I’d only just told my parents that I’m gay, and friends, close family. Only a few people. But I wanted to explain why I hadn’t come out. Part of me felt that you shouldn’t have to, and it was just something I had never felt was appropriate before then, and it was something I had never felt comfortable with talking about to anyone, let alone the world. I was really pleased when it happened. And life’s been good.”
This past weekend, I left my sleepy little town and drive to Longfork Campground. It’s an all gay campground in West Virginia a little north of Charleston. I just hit it up for a day (and sadly missed, by minutes, a caravan of cute boys that had been there for the Pride party the night before.) I spend my life writing about all things gay, but very rarely am I actually around gay people. The campground was like visiting the fountain of youth, spending the day with my tribe. Spaces like that are special. Which is why yes, we still need gay bars.
Evidently Tyler Posey hits on Dylan O’Brien all the time. And kisses him. And show him his butt. Sadly for him, we all know Stiles only has eyes for Derek.
Olympic cyclist Robert Förstemann has 29″ thighs– basically the size of my waist. There were no measurements given on his amazing ass, because it wasn’t attempting to power a 700W toaster until the toast was done to prove how much energy we consume to do things in our daily lives? Can he pedal enough to toast the bread? Why is he wearing a full body suit instead of being shirtless since he’s not worrying about wind resistance? There are many questions here and few answers.
Brazilian cosmetics company O Boticário put together this lovely commercial with three couples getting ready for dates, although how they shake out didn’t please a lot of people, who are calling for a boycott of the company. I don’t even know what they make and I’m thinking about trying to place an order.
Check out Miles Teller getting his groove on at a music festival in Napa. Dance like everyone’s watching, and they’re all jealous, baby!
I haven’t run an Andrew Christian video in a while. The last one had way too much peen for us. But this one is different, as their gorgeous models sit and tell about their lives before and after coming out. Not all of it went smoothly, even for the young beautiful people. But they agree that despite the process, the results are amazing.
Just because you’re in the unspoiled rainforest doesn’t mean you have to be uncivilized
Who wouldn’t want to go to prom with Allison?
Happy anniversary, cuties
Colton seems a unique shade…
Well, none of the gay parts are touching
