Colorado leanest state

6 07 2010

Colorado has the lowest obesity rate of any state in the U.S, it is “only” 19%. Arkansas, Tennessee, Alabama and surrounding states had the highest rate. Average is in between 25-30%. Back in 1991 no state was higher than 20!!! U.S is getting fatter and fatter. Most of my in-laws from Colorado are skinny actually so I am not surprised.

Guess not everyone eat bull testicles all the time





Gossip, Paula Deen, Real Housewives, Tila Tequila, Kylie in NY

8 06 2010

My favorite TV-chef Paula Deen had a maid that stole her jewelry ,y’all . Her husband Michael filed a report with police that in between august 2009 and may 2010, jewelry and other precious metals were stolen. Michael and Paula caught her in the act and fired her ass immediately. I used to think one of our old maids stole my tranquilizers but I think sometimes I just forgot how many I actually took.

Real Housewife of NY, Jill Zarin has contacted authorities for being harassed. A family from Chicago and Alabama have threatened her after her address was made public on the internet. Jill is pissed and rightly so. This is going way too far. Besides, I like Jill and do not get why everyone seems to hate her now. The season finale broke viewing records so people are into them.

Danielle Staub, from New Jersey, has a sex-tape coming out that she made with an unknown male last year. She is the one that Theresa Guidice called a “prostitution whore,” but maybe it is time for Theresa herself to bring out a sex-tape. The woman is $11 million!!!! in debt. She and her husband make only 80.000 a year but have been spending like Donald Trump. How can that even happen???

Tila Tequila is where she belong, the nut-house. She cut her wrist and showed it to fans and they called an ambulance. A while back she twittered about falling and having a deadly dent in her head and she also faked a pregnancy and talked about suicide before. One less person on Dr Drew’s rehab.

Kylie Minogue was in NY for the AmFAR gala and the next day she went to gay bar Splash to promote her new album and the gays went nuts. Been to Splash with my girlfriends once and liked it there. Would have liked seeing Kylie!!





Gay news; Alabama prom discrimination, R.I gays not allowed to bury each other, men attempt to burn gay flag

12 11 2009

A lesbian teen wanted to take her girlfriend to her school’s prom. She had personally raised over $200 and even created the theme for the year. Tharptown High School refused to let her bring her date to the prom and after several organizations demanded she as allowed to attend the school decided to cancel the prom all together. Making the girl the scapegoat. What a bunch of bigot assholes.

Rhode Island Governor Don Carcieri vetoes a new law that would allow same-sex couples to make burial decisions for each other. According to him that is a disturbing erosion of the principles surrounding traditional marriage. So even when dead as a gay men you deserve no basic rights according to that asshole.

In Memphis 2 men were arrested after they attempted to set fire on a rainbow flag at the Memphis Gay and Lesbian Community Center. The arrest was not after a fight with the police though and one of the men had to be punched and pepper-sprayed. It’s the second act of vandalism on the center. In september a billboard featuring a gay marine as destroyed on Nation Coming Out day. The crime inspired hundreds to rally in response.

 





Gay marriage news;same-sex marriage in the Netherlands, marriage equality vote cancelled again in NY, Age very important for gay marriage

11 11 2009

 

The New York Times has an interesting article about how same-sex marriage has worked in the Netherlands.It has been legal since 2001 here, so there is enough time to see what impact it had on society. First of all there is no evidence that same-sex marriage changed how heterosexuals saw their marriage, an argument often used by anti-gay people in the U.S. I talked to my parents about this and they could not understand how people could say that in the U.S. Those people must not be secure about their own marriage was what my mother said, my parents were really stunned about this argument. The only thing that has changed in the Netherlands is how straight people see gay couples. They encourage gay couples to get married and think they should get married now that they have the opportunity. Unfortunately some states in the U.S are more than 20 years behind.

For the second time a promised marriage equality vote was not held in Albany New York yesterday. This summer it was promised by Patterson and senate and last week as well, but it has been postponed until 16/17 november. The Senate promised (again) they would vote on it this year. I am starting to have my doubts, they are so flaky over there.

According to some statistics it will only be a matter of time though before there is gay marriage in the U.S. Younger people 18-29 are in all but 12 states already in favor of gay marriage. In states like Massachusetts, Vermont and Rhode Island those younger people are in favor between 70-75 %. People over 65 are only for 30-35% in favor of it. In the worst states like Utah, Mississippi and Alabama there is still a long way to go though. Young people favor gay marriage 30% and 65+ favor it with only 10%.

 





Gossip; Sir Elton John to become a dad, Barton not crazy but ‘just in pain”, sex toys sale illegal in Alabama

13 09 2009

Elton John might adopt a baby from the Ukraine. Little Lev lives in a foster home in the east of the Ukraine and has stolen Elton’s heart. Even though his partner has wanted kids for a long time Elton did not think it would fit with his lifestyle. Now he has changed his mind, but I wonder if it will all work out. At least in the Netherlands there is an age limit for people who want to adopt and Elton is already 67. I hope it works out for them though, he seems like a good guy.

Mischa Barton came to “the View last week to discuss her mental breakdown and institutionalizing a few weeks back. According to Mischa it was all due to problems with her wisdom teeth. She had surgery gone wrong and a lot of tooth pain and stress from upcoming work. Well, I had my share of tooth problems a few times and even though it can be terrible at times it does not make a sane person go literally insane. Doing too much drugs though, definitely can.

Selling sex toys is still illegal in Alabama. The Supreme Court ruled 7-2 to uphold the ban because selling sex toys is morally offensive. People can have them in private but distribution is not allowed. What age do they live in over there!!??
