Who's Gay, Who's Not, Who's Writing This? Comments (2)

Whos-Gay-George-Clooney-Keanu-Reeves-Simon-Cowell-Rush-Limbaugh
National Examiner (December 24, 2012) takes its crack at the shopworn "Who's Gay Who's Not!" cover story, muddying the waters by placing Keanu Reeves (not out), Lily Tomlin (out) and David Hyde Pierce (out) under "New Stars Come Out!" (Lily's been out for many years, David's been out for several.)

The most interesting write-up involves Rush Limbaugh:

"The 61-year-old conservative radio host has been married four times—his latest wife, Kathryn, is only 35.

"But he's never had any children, and he's long been the subject of homosexual rumors.

"In 2006, he was snared in a bizarre sex scandal when customs officers at Palm Beach International Airport found a bottle of 29 sex-boosting Viagra pills in his luggage—with the prescription written out in another man's name! At that time, he was flying home from a visit to the Dominican Republic, dubbd the 'sex capital of the Caribbean,' famous for its many red-light districts where young boys and girls sell their bodies for sex...

"The whispers in chi-chi Palm Beach, Fla., where Limbaugh has a $40 million compound, are that currently, Kathryn spends a lot of 'quality time' in her own nearby condo, which was a wedding present from her groom."

Here are the rag's conclusions...

IMG_7536Prove it!

As of midnight last night, it was exactly six years since my first post. It's been a tough thing to keep up with a dayjob and outside activities, and just when I think I might walk away, a valuable connection or interesting opportunity or a kind word comes my way. Thank you all for reading me.

Fuck The Lesser Gays Comments (9)

I think it's great that Elton John is helping to raise money for the same-sex marriage fight, and his words at a recent AFER fund-raiser are welcome:

Jigsawimage "I don't have everything because I don't have the respect of people like the church or like politicians who tell me that I'm not worthy, that I'm lesser because I'm gay, well FUCK YOU!"

However, just five years ago, he was the tool who was saying:

"I don’t want to be married. I’m very happy with a civil partnership. If gay people want to get married, or get together, they should have a civil partnership. The word 'marriage,' I think, puts a lot of people off. You get the same equal rights that we do when we have a civil partnership. Heterosexual people get married. We can have civil partnerships."

McCain (Not That One) & Obama & Me & Us Comments (5)

SafariScreenSnapz001
I can't believe I'm going to say this but...an interesting interview with Meghan McCain by Rachel Maddow last night. McCain's getting scorched for coming out and saying what many in the Republican establishment are saying behind-the-scenes, namely that Christine O'Donnell is a "nutjob."

But what interests me is that she went on to talk a bit about President Obama and Don't Ask, Don't Tell. I give McCain credit for openly—and, clearly, sincerely—disagreeing with and being hurt by her father's homophobic stance on DADT (and all other gay issues). In the past, I've been unimpressed with her for focusing on what Obama hasn't done when her father—and her party—is actively, aggressively working against gay issues. But she doesn't harp on that here, instead saying politicians should be held responsible for their failings but admitting she really has no answers as to how. (She doesn't advocate not voting for them again, protesting or other measures suggested by Maddow.)

Also interesting is that Ms. McCain seems to think that Obama has been given a free pass for his gay-rights disappointments. I'm glad Maddow pointed out to her that many in the gay community have given him no such free pass (choice comment at Joe.My.God. yesterday: "Obama can't tell his black ass from his white elbow," and it goes downhill from there on a daily basis in the comments section), but I think the central question remains: What do we do about it?

I don't think there are easy answers. I know AmericaBlog and others have advocated not to give the Democrats money. Some have argued that they'd never vote for Obama again or that they wouldn't vote for any Democrats, or that they wouldn't vote at all. Dan Choi's sincerely, passionately applied tactic is to embarrass the president by turning up the heat via civil disobedience and high-profile demonstrations; these things have worked in the past in other areas.

I'm not attracted to any of these remedies, but like Meghan McCain—and unlike those who use the word "Obamabots" in every other sentence—I don't have all the answers and don't pretend to.

Eat, Plot, Loathe Comments (1)

Rachel Maddow points out that the next culture war will be over food, thanks to Michelle Obama's campaign for healthy eating and exercise.

Michelle-Obama-Iron-Chef-America-Guest-Appearance-500x486 Gee, I don't remember liberals bitching when Laura Bush encouraged reading. "Let me be illiterate if I want to, Big Sister!"

All Mrs. Obama is doing is encouraging something that we all know to be true—eating healthy and exercising are good ideas. If everyone ate better and exercised than they do already, we'd be a happier, healthier and wealthier nation.These are facts. 

But Republicans do not like reality. Witness the Texas Board of Education.

...the first time I ever heard the name "Rush Limbaugh" was in reference to his bashing the looks of then-teenage Chelsea Clinton 17 or so years ago. Now, she's a lovely bride (with a fantastic dress). It's so rare that a presidential kid has a big wedding like this. I don't remember the last one. Nobody noticed if Amy Carter got hitched. And Hillary looks like she was beaten black-and-blue by the pretty stick—hair, makeup and dress. Bill still looks slightly like he's in the doghouse, no? It's like Hillary's embracing her son-in-law and daughter and Bill photo-bombed the picture.
