Gay news, gays skinny/lezzies fat, CBS poll 77% of U.S knows gay people, DADT repeal harmful for children, Repent

10 06 2010

A news study by the American Journal of public health showed that gay men were 50% less likely to be obese than straight men. Lesbian women though are 50% more likely to be obese. Conclusion is that people in sexual relationships with men have more pressure to look thin and attractive then people who have sex with women. Not a surprise here!!

A poll done by CBS showed that 77% of americans say they know someone who is gay or lesbian. In 1992 that was only 42%. 43% of americans see homosexuality as wrong, that used to be 62%. Seems that visibility is a good thing. I bet a lot more than 77% know gays, some just do not know.

According to Rep Ike Skelton, Democrat,MO repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell is harmful because it would mean families will be put in the difficult situation of explaining homosexuality to kids. Why?? And why is that bad, you fool.

Repent is “an army of evangelicals” from Texas that go to swinger-clubs, strip bars and gay bars and film the visitors of those places while screaming they are sinners. They also make notes of the license plates and try to scare people into going to “sinful” places. It has already become a national organization. Scary.

Gay news, Austria gay stamp, gay Welsh rugby star, anti-gay day a big fail, Gay pride Slovakia in danger

4 05 2010

The Australian Postal Service has issued the world’s first postage stamp to celebrate gay pride. It is on the occasion of the 15th annual Gay Pride in Vienna. The stamp is worth $0.72 and a bit bland. Just the words Rainbow Parade in German, but still cool it exists.

I reported a while back about the coming out of rugby star Gareth Thomas. He did an interview with SI and talked about how great his team mates were in accepting him and telling him he was still the same and it did not matter. Unfortunately this sunday a small part of the audience during one of his matches was not so gay-friendly. In the match his team on with 19-0 they started chanting homophobic slurs and he was pretty upset. The rugby league has taken action against the “fans”.

Religious Right Wingnuts hosted a 70.000 dollar event at the Lincoln memorial called: ” A cry to God for a nation in distress.” It was lined with Evangelical stars and morons like Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council and Pete LaBarbera from Americans for truth about homosexuality(probably 2 closet-cases themselves) and originally an idea of Huckabee’s inner circle. Only 300 people attended, haha. And that for 70.000 bucks. I post a small clip, the second speaker brings out the laughs!! Starts around 1 minute into the clip

The leader of the Slovakian National Party told media he is not in favor at all of the first Bratislava Pride in May 2010. He wants to attend it if it goes through and spit on the gays there. The extremely nationalistic SNP is a coalition party of the Government in Slovakia.





Some very smart americans!!!

You didn’t get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.

You didn’t get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in  Iraq.

You didn’t get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.

You didn’t get mad when we didn’t catch Bin Laden.

You didn’t get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

You didn’t get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans, drown.

You didn’t get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark.

You finally got mad when the government decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick.  Yes, lies and corruption are all okay with you, but helping other Americans…oh hell no.

I picked some of the things that I agree with and left others out, the whole thing you can read at Rosie’s Blog.





Americans not that bad

7 01 2010

The New York Times has an article titled “a Letter from London” in which an Englishman says americans are not that bad. And I have to agree with him. He noticed that people in the U.S. itself as well as U.S people traveling abroad had similar characteristics, being friendly and hospitable while they are typically described as loud and crass. I totally agree with him on that, I always have to get used to the rudeness and bad manners people in the Netherlands( and the rest of Europe) have compared to Americans after spending time across the Atlantic. People( me included after a while here) don’t wait for their turn when exiting, men don’t let woman go first, people in traffic are super selfish and the U.S rule on a crossroads where the first one there goes first would never work in Europe. I think people in the Netherlands themselves are finally realizing this a bit and hopefully learn a bit from the U.S behavior.  Now if only some (mostly mid-western) folks that me and my american boyfriend meet across the globe would know a bit more about European geography and keep the God-loving talk to a minimum, they would be perfect!!





Gossip; Britney mother of the year, Balloon Boy hoax, Leona Lewis punched

18 10 2009

At a recent poll in the UK Britney Spears came out as Mother of the Year, seriously. I thought it as a joke but bizarrely enough it wasn’t. So if you almost drop you baby, go crazy, do drugs, smoke right next to your children and have a few dead-beat partners you might become mother of the year as well!! Kerry Katona was mother of the year as well a while back in Britain, so the competition is very stiff.

Is anybody still believing that the “Balloon Boy” family did NOT make this up. The boy basically admitted it on live TV,had to puke from all the nerves about lying and the parents are big fame-whores who want their own reality show. And have been on other TV shows. I think it is funny though that so many Americans with no lives of their own were watching this on TV for hours. Yesterday the dad wanted to give an emergency press conference, the emergency being that he will put a cardboard box outside for people to give them ideas and talk to them. WTF. 

Poor Leona Lewis. The X-factor winner in England and star over the whole world had a book-signing in London and a man waited 5 hours in line to punch her really hard in the face. How freaky! The most likely reason is that the man is a former contestant of the same show, was rejected and is incredibly jealous of Leona. And he is a nut. Luckily he is being held in a psychiatric institution right now.
