Across from the Stonewall are statues called “Gay Liberation” that are cast from plaster, and look, well, very white, and not just from their medium. Two anonymous activists have given them a makeover in response to the trailer for Stonewall, painting them brown and giving them accessories that reflect the diversity of color and gender at the riots.
PRO 140, a self-injectable treatment for HIV, could be on the market by 2017 after proving 98% effective in Phase 2B clinical trials. The injection provides suppression of the virus for a week. I can’t ever see myself giving myself a shot every week. My doctor has tried to get me to give myself my testosterone shot every two weeks and when I try and watch them do the injection to learn, I get lightheaded. I’ll stick to my nightly pills.
The three accused homophobic attackers in the Philadelphia assault last year have been granted an extension as they negotiate plea deals. I know that most of these things end in pleas but not trials, but part of me wants to put these asshats on trial just for the public spectacle. Especially the one whose father is a cop. Make daddy proud.
The thing is…you were slut shaming them. The fun thing about slut shaming is that it can take a lot of different forms, but one of the most insidious is the one where the superior person claims that he’s just looking out for you. Don’t assume a parental role you don’t have. People don’t take PrEP, and all that getting it entails, to let their guard down. They take it to have their guard always up, even when their judgment might be down.
Oh for god’s sake, a bearish man in his 30s who is into twinks is not a pervert. Why do we put all these judgments on each other? He doesn’t need to seek therapy, he’s not a pedophile. 90% of the guys who chase me are twinks, and I’m in my 40s. What does that make me? Or really, make them since I’m not the one chasing them? Although I have been known to let them catch me.
Think Tank took a look at a Vice article about teenage girls flocking to forums to share their love of gay porn, and managed to show an astounding lack of clarity about anything. They start out saying that for many of these girls it begins with yaoi manga, but they later get into it about girls not liking fem guys. And then they take a swing at fem guys, and neither of them seems to notice it. The whole segment is a mess, even for something that’s centered around teenage girls watching porn.
Ever get your luggage back at the airport and wonder which of the seven levels of hell it’s been through? Well, here’s a piece of luggage with a GoPro strapped to it making the journey, which honestly is a lot more automated than I expected, and not nearly as rough as I would have thought considering what my bag has looked like when I got it back.
The first trailer is out for Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy’s Victor Frankenstein and I’ve got to say, it’s…something. I’m not sure what it is, but it’s something. Is it an action movie? A comedy? A romance? A bromance? I have no idea. But it’s a movie.
Lea DeLaria sat down for an intensely frank discussion about her body image, her struggles as a butch, coming out to her family, and how she got into comedy. Because it’s all about self worth, she stripped off her clothes to end up in just a bra and boxer shorts, revealing a confidence that is hard won, as evidenced by her stories. It’s an amazing thing to see, someone laid so bare literally and figuratively.
