I don’t know why I torture myself sometimes, when I find a good looking guy, and talk to him, then realize I’m totally out of my league with him.  What am I thinking?  Some tall, dark, tatted, and hot guy isn’t going to deal with a tall, buzzed & bearded 46 year old blogger.  Oh yeah, I can be kind, loving, passionate, faithful, funny as hell, accepting, compassionate, etc.  I can also be cantankerous, fussy, moody, and pissy. 

eh.

Fuqit.

otterfiles:

That time you realized boys kiss better than girls.

They really do.
To be more specific, boys kiss boys better than girls.
I’ve sorta kissed a girl, and felt nothing other than awkwardness.  But a guy kissing - man.  That’s the shit.

Founder of Chick-Fil-A dead at 93

I’m gonna leave this right here.
———————
S. Truett Cathy, the founder of Chick-Fil-A, is dead at age 93.

A spokesman for the company said Cathy died on Sunday at his home surrounded by family.

He began the chicken restaurant near Atlanta in 1946.

Today the chain has more than 1800 locations.

You may remember a somewhat recent controversy involving Cathy and donations his company made to anti-LBGT organizations.

It lead to wide-spread picketing and major changes to the way the company made donations.

Cathy is survived by his wife of 65 years, Jeannette McNeil Cathy; sons Dan T. and Don “Bubba” Cathy; daughter Trudy Cathy White; 19 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren, according to a company statement.

It’s official - we’ve found the missing link - A GAY REPUBLICAN! 
——————————
 (via Former GOP spokesman comes out, pushes for marriage | Oklahoma City - OKC - KOCO.com)

He is gay. He’s a Republican. He wants to get married.

During his time as a spokesperson for the Republican Party and GOP candidates, James Richardson noted that “never once did I write that I am gay.”

That changed with the publication of a column by Richardson in Thursday’s Washington Post that openly proclaims his sexuality.

Despite being a member and former spokesman for a party that doesn’t support what he so badly desires — to marry his same sex partner — Richardson is committed to the GOP and committed to changing the party’s views on the issue.

While all six openly gay members of the U.S. House and one member of the Senate are Democrats, that could change in November as at least three gay Republicans are currently running.

"I’m advocating for change openly as a gay Republican," he said in an interview with CNN about why he decided to announce his sexuality. "It brings some personal heft when you are convincing people that what they are doing is going to hurt you."

He wants to work “from within” to change minds and the law about same sex marriage, he said.

"My partner and I are envious subscribers to the conventional, conservative family model. Yet together, as two men wishing to grow grey and ornery in matching rocking chairs, we are consigned to ‘cohabitation’ as a consequence of law. That’s unjust, and it’s uniquely painful," he wrote in the Post.

Richardson once worked for the more moderate Republican Jon Huntsman who has embraced same-sex marriage. But he also worked for candidates adamantly against same sex marriage, including former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour’s short-lived presidential exploratory campaign. Barbour has said he firmly believes that marriage is between a man and a woman.

"I strongly disagree" with Barbour, Richardson said, adding that he respects Barbour’s position. "It’s a matter of overlooking something for the broader picture."

Ken Mehlman, former adviser to President George W. Bush and former chair of the Republican National Committee, announced that he is gay in 2010 after he stepped out of the political spotlight and into the private sector.

Vintage Photos of San Francisco Gay Pride in the 1980s

I loved when I was born & grew up, but part of me wishes I had been born just about 7 or 8 years earlier, so I’d be in my 20s when all this was going on.  My life might have been totally different as a gay man.

—————————————————-

Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. Dykes on bikes. Mustaches galore. Lovers indulging in grassy slumber. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Perhaps.

From 1984 to 1990, newspaper photographer Saul Bromberger and his now-wife Sandra Hoover documented the San Francisco Pride celebration in a collection of black and white images that now serve as a time capsule into the watershed moments of the gay rights movement. The couple began taking photos of the Pride parade because they rightly believed they were witnessing history.

“It was this kind of test I was giving myself: Can we document this movement that is also a parade?” Saul told Mother Jones. Unlike other photographers, he didn’t “just see people jumping around and dancing,” he said. He saw people “demanding change.”

In the midst of the AIDS crisis, San Francisco Pride festivities was both filled with joy and rage, and Saul and Sandra understood the power of this emotional roller coaster.

The writer of the Mother Jones article, Janet Kornblum, remembers riding the roller coaster — herself a lesbian who lived in San Francisco and met Saul and Sandy in 1988.

“The past lives and breathes in these photos,” she wrote. “And it’s important to remember history. It’s important to see ourselves from a distance, especially when the closet walls have fallen and here we are.”
