* FEATURED re-POST from 12/30/08 *|
With additional photos of our love in honor of the Obama Inauguration Week ...
and the beginning of a new era of respect for SAME GENDER LOVE.
* play video * Sometimes its too much. Convincing people you are worthy of the same rights and respect as they are should be a no-brainer. It's not. Obama's historic inaugural preparations are underway; in less than a month an alleged man of god will give the invocation, despite taking numerous repugnant positions in the past - not the least of which equating gay sex to pedophilia. Some say he didn't really mean it that way. It doesnt' really matter. It was a ham-fisted analogy which exposed his ugly heterosexist heart -- in his eyes, we (gays) will never be as good as them (straights).
Watching Taylor Swift sing this song (yes, I like country music) and visually capture the magic that LOVE can be and wrap it in a fairy tale, all I could think was they wanna keep it all to themselves. Almost as Victorian and exclusionary as the video, the retrograde attitudes of that bastard Warren, the ex-Hitler-Youth turned Pope, and countless other wannabe men (and women) of God want to keep all this magic and fantasy and fairy dust to themselves. They want to rob us of our fairy tale love stories; force them back into the shadows and alleys and dark corners of our past.
I've made my position on Warren very clear. Now is not the time to burn effigies. As a black man I wanna celebrate this event. I wanna cry hot tears and fall to my knees for those who didn't live to see this day. Its been a long time coming.
Then, President Obama, after all the confetti is swept away and DC returns to normal -- we're coming to claim our love stories. Because everyone deserves a fairy tale. And like my grandma used to say (and its oh so fitting here!) - "You can believe that like you read it in the Bible." ~~

And yet, they decapitate homos. This just makes me shake my head. And of course, 'The Kingdom' is our friend. Cuba is still isolated and we can 't legally get a good Cuban cigar because ... what, I can't even remember. Human rights abuses? No, can't be that, there's nothing more abusive than marrying off 8 year old girls like the country America's been pal'in around with. *sigh*
So. Crazy. Makes me wanna run away to a deserted island and live out my days sipping rum from a coconut. ~~
Ho ho ho, its not a typo. Call this a very un-Merry Christmas from his unholiness the Poop.
Okay, let's see: protecting the environment on one hand, because global warming will lead to violent weather and kill millions. And on the other hand we have Bert screwing Ernie. Hmmm, I just don't see that spiraling into planetary extinction. Okay, maybe they're extremely freaky ... say, uh, Bert likes to shove his fist up Ernie's ass in the privacy of their own tastefully appointed condo. Ouch. Nasty even. Still, I just don't see how their consensual ass play could possibly doom the world. It does say that when you peek into folks bedrooms you may see some shocking shit.
Why do people still listen to this asshole? The man just blatantly blessed gay bashing. What mankind needs to be saved from is doddering old fools like him, before he sets off another inquistion. Remember that? Another time, another old stupid Pope with a God complex.
The parents of the next little gay boy who gets shot in the head for giving another boy a Valentine should sue the shit out of the Catholic church because their senile old Pope can't seem shut his homophobic Nazi pie hole.
Felt good to get that off my chest. Merry Christmas! Oh, since I'm on a defiling all things allegedly holy roll ... lets get a closer peek at my childhood best buds, Bert & Ernie. If all the Priests diddling little boys hasn't brought down the brimstone yet, then this is just good fun. ~~
Looking so CUTE and just like his momma. Evan Ross, baby of the Ross klan and who recently starred in the powerful Gardens of the Night as a former child prostitute, was sighted doing some shopping at Barney's. Now there's a morsel who has no need of a suger daddy. *sigh*
And hey, all Diana Ross offspring sightings are newsworthy. (Especially Evan's)
On a Super-Hero note:
“It’s a blessing really, to know that I could potentially be this superhero,” he enthused. “Justice League itself is an honor, and Green Lantern is an incredible character to play. It’s a blessing to be associated with it.”
Or, why can't we stop being self-centered little twits?
With all the retching and gagging from a disgruntled community -- still queasy over Prop 8 and now forced to swallow a fat greasy homophobe named Warren -- I've been one of the rare voices calling for calm, reason, and Maalox.
Then I read this piece detailing the myriad challenges facing the incoming President - President-elect Barack Obama - When Wisdom, Honesty and Judiciousness No Longer Seem to Matter - and it hit all the reasons why I called for calm. The article concludes with:
To me, this quote is one the screeching gay community could take to heart, with most of the major blogs fuming with calls to do all sorts of things to show our anger over the Warren thing. The man hasn't even taken office yet and already we are like the villagers with torches chasing Frankenstein [who only nanoseconds ago was The One]. There is a spirited debate at Pam's House Blend over whether Warren will be UNinvited. If I was on the religious right, I would find it all this quite hilarious -- and even inspired to do more to piss us off. But as my friend Bernie on Facebook said, everybody needs to chill out, which started another spirited debate.
I. Couldn't. Agree. More.
You see, while some are listening to the HRC types and saying "How dare he elevate that fat sweaty homophobe after WE put him in office!?", I see a besieged PE with monumental difficulties left by Bush. Things will turn around. We elected the smart guy, remember? Here's a quote from his address about his commitment to America becoming first again in science. Hmm, science over ideology. I wonder what Pastor Rick Warren thinks of that ....
So to answer the question why can't we trust the smart guy? Some of us do. But while HRC types badger the President-elect about pal'n around with homophobes, I hope he's keeping eye on unimportant things like India's far-right planning not only revenge on Pakistan for Mumbai, but a global Nuclear War to push the reset button on the world.
But, maybe, with HRC's diligence, we'll get marriage rights before our flesh melts away. ~~
