It's So Hard Not to Hate You

October 31, 2010

In the past few weeks, the news reports of youth suicides has been alarming, to say the least. In the wake of these tragedies, we learn that bullying and/or bullyish behavior were involved, and that motivation for the bullying involved sexual orientation. We’ve seen celebrities unite to make change, and Facebook pages spring up offering […]

Big Media Keep on Churning, Virgin Mary Keep on Burning

September 28, 2010

We are taught that it is necessary to be educated about history’s mistakes, lest we find ourselves repeating them, yet we continue generation after generation to hunt and burn witches. Despite all the technology we have available to let people learn more and grow, and refute things that the powers of politics and the media try to use to sway our views, we are often content in subscribing to the vague and non-descript views of whoever screams the loudest, without a concern for facts or fairness.

Now, I am a thirtysomething gay man, which means by Judy’s law, I have to love Madonna. And I do. But- and this is a big but (as big as Shak’s titties are tiny)- what is the deal with “I Love New York” off her otherwise nifty “Confessions on a Dance Floor” album.

Of Hysterical Significance

March 26, 2010

I am personally waiting for “First Openly Bisexual Jewish Black Breast Cancer Survivor to Win an Olympic Gold in Curling.” But until that day, I will have to settle for “First Black Mayor of ____” and “First Openly Gay Guido in the North End.” It’s comical to a point that acknowledgment of the “real” accomplishments seem unnecessary. And is it? Are we really in a space where we need to highlight each and every minute accomplishment of someone simply because they might have a characteristic different from a greater percentage of the population?

Love's Season Finale…

December 26, 2009

That sounds harsh…it’s more like when the Aunt on that Will Smith show came back after a season break played by another actress.
