Gay news, dutch elections, lesbian moms better, Oklahoma city councilman compares gays with pedophiles and wife-beaters

8 06 2010

Tomorrow is election-day in the Netherlands and because I never got my voter’s permit, I had to get one yesterday. It was a hassle but necessary. I read on the biggest gay website in the Netherlands that Libertarians(VVD) were number 1 with gays(also with me) followed by Geert Wilders’ PVV. Maybe if I would be gay and living in Amsterdam or Rotterdam and face all the discrimination and abuse by Moroccan guys I would be doing the same thing. Third is D’66, kinda left of the middle. I voted that my first 2 times. I think the Netherlands needs a strong economic party though to face the crisis and that is why VVD is good imo. I would never vote christian, green of left so there is not much else left to vote for anyway!!

According to a just published study from over 20 years, lesbian moms seem to raise better kids! On measurement of development and social behavior their kids scored similar to the kids of straight parents. But on self-esteem and confidence they scored higher, were better academically and had less behavioral problems. Wow!! Curious what the bigots say about this.

Oklahoma City approved a gay pride parade with 8-1 votes. The sole person against it was Brian Walters, who is a born-again christian that does not believe in the gay lifestyle. He said he would also not support wife-beaters or pedophiles to assemble. Cause that is the same thing, you know. What an idiot.

Sao Paulo Gay pride 2010 was a huge success. In Brazil, 3.2 million people celebrated and there were hardly any incidents. Pride is financed by the government and brings in millions of dollars to the city in revenue. I saw some footage and it looked pretty fabulous.

Gossip; Cindy McCain for gay marriage; Kournikova’s mom arrested, Monique’s hairy legs

21 01 2010

Cindy McCain, wife of senator and presidential candidate John McCain came out in favor of gay marriage by being part of the famous NoH8 campaign. It would have been better of course if she would have come out in favor during the election but I understand that was probably very hard. Still a great thing though and more than Michelle Obama has done so far.

Mother of former tennis superstar Anna Kournikova is charged with child neglect after her son(Anna’s half-brother) of 5 jumped out of a window and neighbors found him bleeding on the street. Mom was running errands and left her son at home for at least 50 minutes with the doors locked. He wanted to go out and that is why he jumped. Even though I think it is very stupid what she did, I don’t think she should lose custody. She is probably super upset about it and is apparently normally a great mom.

Monique forgot to shave her legs again during this years Golden Globes’ Awards. The actress from Precious and Talk Show host has done this before and I think it looks disgusting. An aunt of mine does the same thing sometimes and me and my mom talked about that a while back and that aunt is not on a red carpet obviously. I think it is even grosser than armpit hair for a woman and the funny thing is Monique did have very nice painted pedicured feet. I have often seen woman in the U.S that look super sloppy and have no make-upon and are super fat, but do have very heavily manicured fingernail or pedicured toenails and I never get that.





GLBT news; Top 5 Gay destinations, BearForce1 split, India creates third gender for voters

14 11 2009

Top 5 gay leisure destinations in the U.S according to a recent survey by the LGBT-focused Community Marketing Inc. are:     1 New York,  2 Las Vegas, 3 SF, 4 LA, 5 Chicago. Seems to be mostly the biggest cities otherwise Fort Lauderdale, Key West and Provincetown should have been higher. With lesbians Las Vegas is number 1, also not surprising. The survey also mentioned the most popular countries for American LGBT travelers in Europe. Number 1 is England, 2 France,3 Germany, 4 Italy 5 Spain. I do not understand England being number 1, I think it should have been Spain. Maybe because it is closest to the U.S.?? Italy is great but not so much for specific gay destinations. And where is the Netherlands???

Gay boy-band with hairy fatties BearForce 1 no longer exists. Well I guess for some it was fun as long as it lasted. Basically 2 years I guess with 2 minor hits. The producer of the band was on dutch TV a while back(he is a famous dutch actor) and he said they were mostly popular in the U.S where the bear community is the biggest. But since a year they have had more changes in members then the Sugababes and they were basically a one-trick-pony anyway. It will not cost me a minute of sleep that is for sure.

Indian election authorities have granted what they call an independent identity for transsexuals on the country’s voter lists. They have the change to pick O for “Other” instead of male or female from now on when indicating their gender. Wow after first legalizing gay sex not this. They are getting very progressive in India lately.
