I am a NEVER BERNIE, are you?

I like my company health insurance. I don't want to pay more in taxes. I live in a Sanctuary City and am fearful of open Southern Border with free healthcare and free education for all (75% of Central America will move here within months). I don't think Mr. Sanders looks remotely Presidential. I think he has a past history of communism.

These are my reasons. If you disagree, fine. If you vote for him, fine, at least you plan to vote. BUT PLEASE don't hate me for not wanting to vote for Bernie! Also, I am one person and not a BOT or a TROLL and I never voted for a Republican in my life.

Gay - number of sex partners in your lifetime?

How many partners have you had in your life? The Australian Sex Survey of 25,000 people showed the average gay man had 96 partners in his life, but the median number of partners was 22. The median is much more accurate for the 'average' in this case because the mean was being pulled up by a minority of gay men who were having most of the sex. About 38% had 50 or more sex partners, which shows the 'average' can't have 96 if the majority had less than 50.

Like all statistics, one must be careful to ensure data is actually representative and doesn't focus on one area or sample through just Grindr/sex clubs. I see a lot of Christians like to share around a survey from 1970's San Francisco showing respondents had hundreds of partners, but its own author called it highly unrepresentative. In my experience about a third of gay guys are promiscuous, a third are prudes and the other third are somewhere in between.

How about you? I know people who use gay media sites are probably more into the scene (no offense) so we may have skewed answers.

My Crazy Gay Neighbors

My neighbor is a gay guy, he’s seeing a queer binary tranny who just looks like a man in a dress. They talk so fucking loud. I woke up last week to the tranny screaming, saying he was going to kill himself and something about a phone. Last night I heard them going on and on at 2am about how the tranny saw him on Grindr and how he will hurt himself if he sees him on there again. We’re talking borderline personality disorder. It’s quite frightening. Every time they’re about to have sex I hear them going on and on about pronouns and gender roles, etc. It’s batshit crazy. Does anyone else have crazy gay neighbors? I thought dykes were the ones with all the drama.

Hayden Panettiere's Boyfriend Arrested Again for Domestic Violence, Again. Allegedly Punched Her.

Hayden Panettiere's boyfriend's been hauled off to jail again for allegedly putting hands on her -- this time in Wyoming ... on Valentine's Day.

The ex-"Nashville" star's BF, Brian Hickerson, was arrested around 2:30 AM on Valentine's Day, after the couple had a fight and he struck her "with a closed fist on the right side of her face" ... according to cops.

The Teton County Sheriff's Office was notified of a disturbance at a private residence in Jackson. The caller said an intoxicated male was locked out of the home because he punched his girlfriend in the face.

When deputies arrived, they found Brian in the driveway, and according to docs obtained by TMZ ... he allegedly told them Hayden was in the house "saying he beat the f*** out of me." Cops say he avoided answering if he had punched Hayden, but claimed he hired a private chef to stick around so he "wouldn't be accused of bulls**t."

Cops talked to the chef on the phone, and he said he left a little after 1 AM -- but claims he witnessed the couple arguing earlier in the night.

According to the docs, Hayden told cops she and Brian were in their bedroom when he started throwing her around and punched her. Cops say her face was red and swollen, and she also had a scrape and swelling on her left hand -- which she believed came from Hickerson's watch during the altercation.

The deputies heard enough to book Hickerson for domestic battery. He was also hit with a second charge of interfering with a police officer for allegedly refusing to identify himself.

When we last spoke with Hayden in November, she told us everything was well between Brian and her -- intimating they'd moved past his felony domestic violence arrest earlier in 2019.

We broke the story ... the couple allegedly got into an altercation at their L.A. home that left red marks on Hayden's body, and police arrested Brian for it. However, the case was later dismissed for not being able to secure a "material witness" -- AKA, Hayden.

Hickerson was also involved in a domestic incident in late 2018 ... with his father. Hayden was there for that one too. She's been dating Brian for about a year and a half.

Sharon Osbourne Debuts '100% White Hair' After Dyeing It Red for the Past 18 Years

After nearly two decades of coloring her hair, Sharon Osbourne is officially embracing her natural hue.

The star, 67, has been dyeing her hair a deep red color for the past 18 years and has had to get it done about once a week to keep the color intact. But after spending so much time in the salon, Osbourne wanted a change, and enlisted celebrity colorist Jack Martin to help with a major transformation.

“Sharon has 100% white hair and she was coloring her hair once a week dark vibrant red for the past 18 years. She explained to me that she wanted to do this transformation long time ago but every time she attempts it ends up with a disaster,” Martin wrote on Instagram along a side-by-side photo of Osbourne’s old and new hair looks.

He continued, “Sharon was very tired of coloring her hair once a week and she was obligated to since she is on tv almost every day hosting her popular tv show @thetalkcbs.”

While Martin told her he would try his best to give her the color she was hoping for, he knew it would be a challenge to make such a dramatic switch-up — but he pulled it off without a hitch.

“It took me a total of eight hours from start to finish to get her to a platinum blonde so she doesn’t have to be committed to coloring her hair once a week anymore,” the colorist said.

Martin is also the mastermind behind the momentous occasion at the 2020 Oscars when Jane Fonda, 82, stepped out with a gray pixie cut created by the colorist.

“She showed me her inspiration and immediately decided that I was the guy for the job,” Martin told PEOPLE, adding that the Grace and Frankie star was fearless when it came to embracing her gray hair — and underwent a seven-hour transformation to achieve the “icy silver blonde” shade.

“If you meet Ms. Fonda in person, you’ll witness her strong personality and her simplicity at the same time,” Martin said. “She is someone who is very far from being nervous about a hair makeover…She’s the kind of person who is not afraid of change.”

Advice needed! How to be "sexy"?

Ok. So not to be braggy, but most people I meet want to be my friend. I don't know what it is but strangers, straight girls especially, always want to start a friendship. People have also always struggled to determine whether I'm gay or not - I say this because as a 6'8" large man I think some of these ladies are low-key flirting maybe, feeling me out so to speak. As an example, I was in Jimmy Choo with my mom and after 5 minutes of talking to the very pretty sales girl she was giving me her # and wanted to hang out that weekend. When I told her I was gay she got more excited and started naming all the gay bars she goes to with her gay brother. Stuff like this constantly happens. When I meet friends of friends or friends of my siblings they always end up getting my number and wanting to be BFFs. All this is fine and good and I do like the fact that people like me. It is also an advantage as I like getting my way and usually can do so just be being kind, an attentive listener and a good friend. Here is the problem - NO MEN EVER WANT TO FUCK ME!!! They want to be friends, shopping buddies etc. But never want to fuck! I don't think I'm ugly. I mean who wants an ugly friend? If I was ugly I doubt people would be striking up convos with me randomly in public. Yet I can never move the peg beyond friendship despite always being told the best relationships are based on liking the person and being friends first. So two things -

1. Why do women give their numbers, social media handles etc to large strange men that could easily overpower, rob and murder them? Seems stupid and unsafe on their part.

2. How do I silently telegraph to men that I'm not here to make friends, I'm here to get laid??? I want to be sexy not everyone's new BFF!!

3. Short of presenting dick and hole, what do I have to do to be an object of desire?

I'm not complaining, but it gets old always having to make the first move, always having to come out over and over. I just once would like to be an object of desire!!

New Bloomberg Ad Scorches “Abusive Bernie Bros”

The Wrap reports:

In the ad, posted early Monday morning, tweets from a handful of Sanders backers, featuring memes and hashtags like #BernieOrElse, appear on the screen. “Vote Bernie or bad things will happen,” warns one tweet.

Another says, “Libs who are flirting with Bloomberg now should be aware that they are going on lists. Next time they pretend to care about racism or sexual harassment or really anything other than money and power, we will remember what they were doing right now and we will remind everyone.”

Those are followed by screenshots of what appear to be harassing text messages purportedly sent by Sanders supporters to Democrats not inclined to vote for him in the primary, as well as headlines from prominent news outlets highlighting the harassment.

Dirty John - what the hell is wrong with Debra?

So a friend of mine is hooked on the Bravo dramatization of this story, which was a viral (real life story) podcast. I was intrigued enough to look this up, and found the following:

59 year old, rich interior designer (Debra), four times divorced! - meets Irish-American "doctor" (John) on match.com. They go out, he's wearing cargo shorts while she's in Gucci, but to her he's sexy, so they go back to her place. He comes on strong, she turns him down, writes him off, but he love bombs her in texts.

A few weeks later they move in together to the tune of a 6k a month Newport waterfront condo (her money) and he proceeds to behave as shadily as every no-account psycho in every Lifetime movie ever made.

Surprise! He's unemployed, newly out of prison, not a doctor, not even the roaming freelance anesthesiologist he later claimed to be, nor a nurse! He's got a trail of restraining orders and pissed off women behind him! He's hooked on Class III narcotics!

He tells her these are for legitimate ailments.

They get married!

Debra has adult daughters. She also has a history. Back in her youth, her brother-in-law murdered her sister in cold blood. Her mom took the brother-in-law's part, testifying on his behalf for hours and hours. Upshot, he barely served time and is now free. Mom "works" as a professional "forgiveness" lecturer. BTW, the dead daughter wanted out of the marriage due to her husband's controlling, paranoid, and abusive ways, but mom hand-waved all that. Everybody goes to a megachurch called Mariners, where one presumes "Men are the bomb, women - everything is your fault and responsibility" is a big theme.

Back to the present. Hubby makes jokes about killing her grown daughters, who don't like him. Debra doesn't take it seriously. It feels so good to be with him! It feels SOOO good to finally be with the ONE! He brings her orange juice in the morning, and massages her shoulders!

Her kids hire a private PI who uncover all kinds of mess.

Debra is confused, in a quandary. Does this mean she has to give up her feels? It FEEEEEEls so good to be with him! He's ALL about her, all the time! How can that be WRONG?

After vacillating, and after data theft, camera surveillance (from him to her), and more, Debra talks to a lawyer (AGAIN) and leaves John. Still, she earnestly converses with him, just to see - maybe it's all a mistake! Maybe there's an explanation!

Ah, fuck it. She goes back to him. (To be continued)

Grover Cleveland

He murdered two people by hanging, choosing to do the dirty work himself.

He was accused of raping a widow he was courting. To shut her up he accused her of being insane, had her institutionalized and their illegitimate child was reared by acquaintances.

He forged programs to assimilate Native Americans into white society and destroy their culture.

Cleveland 47, was a bachelor when elected president. To avoid the rumor mill he married a woman 27 years younger than him, who was a child of a family friend.

[quote]Grover Cleveland, met his future wife shortly after she was born and he was 27 years old. He took an avuncular interest in her, buying her a baby carriage and otherwise doting on her as she grew up. When her father died in a carriage accident on July 23, 1875, without having written a will, the court appointed Cleveland administrator of his estate. This brought Cleveland into still more contact with Frances, then age 11.

What would you do about this neighbor?

I’m going kind of nuts. My building is full of old people and it’s very quiet, which I love. I’ve been here for close to four years now.

For a few weeks now, there has been a frequent, very loud series of eight or nine clapping/snapping sounds coming from the hallway. It’s hard to describe, but imagine the sound of water dripping from a faucet into a basin of water, but amplified to the sound of a clap and in rapid succession. I ignored it for a while thinking it was some kind of maintenance or something.

Anyway, I am home today and it has been driving me nuts. Finally, I opened the door and heard a woman across the hall, a couple of doors down, talking loudly on her phone along with the snapping/clapping noise. It sounded like she was pacing as she talked outside of her apartment. I am not confrontational and so I just listened for a minute or so until I was sure she was generating the sound and then I came back in and kind of slammed my door a bit hoping she’d get the message. I didn’t peek around the corner to see what the fuck she is doing to make that noise. She’s Indian and I wonder if it may be some cultural thing?? Anyway, she is one of very few neighbors I ever see in the hallway and I just realized it’s because she is so frequently standing outside her condo talking on the phone. No idea what the hell she is doing.

I am so annoyed to realize it’s a neighbor making this sound because I figured it’s some sort of construction work that eventually will end. If she bought the condo, then I guess this is a forever thing?

I can’t imagine ever confronting her about it but I am thinking about posting a note on the elevator on the floor (her apartment is close to it) asking neighbors to be courteous and not make loud noises in the hallway.

What would you do?

And do you have any idea why she might be making this sound? I can’t figure whether it might be some cultural thing (since she wears saris, etc.) or if it’s just some personal habit.

Who is the worst Disney Princess?

Pocahontas is an insulting abortion of the real woman’s rather tragic life story. Even without taking the real story into account, her onscreen romance with John Smith is awful. The movie is very boring.

Mirada is an annoying cunt who never seems to learn a real lesson. Brave is the worst Pixar movie after that Dinosaur one we all agreed to forget about.

Aurora is a dumb bitch who sleeps through most of her movie.

Ariel is the dumbest bitch of all. She gave up her identity and voice for some guy she met for 5 seconds. She deserved the story’s original ending for being a dumb bitch and to teach young girls a better lesson.

Snow White has no value whatsoever. Terrible character, terribly dated animation, dated music, and boring story. She is my pick.

DL, How Do I Help My Stepmom?

My dad is a piece of shit. He comes from a broken home so it's understandable to see why, and I do love him and think he's capable of change, but he has a track record of abuse. He verbally and emotionally abused my mother (and maybe physically, I'm not entirely sure and I don't want to ask her) for the entire duration of their marriage. He emotionally abused my sister and verbally, emotionally, and physically abused me. He made all of us feel like worthless trash, regularly screamed, made threats. He's an alcoholic and tends to be better when he's drunk and worse when he hasn't had a drink in a while.

When I was eight my mom divorced my dad and took custody of us after he did something to me that I don't really remember. I think he might have thrown me against something. Anyways, she did it because she was afraid for our safety and finally had the means to raise us on her own.

Since then my dad has had a string of marriages and girlfriends, all of whom he treats like shit. The abuse towards me stopped as I got older and more capable of fighting back, and now he just says shitty things to me. He married a woman who's almost my age, and treats her like garbage. I've tried standing up for her and breaking up the moments of abuse but she gets angry at me when I do. She comes from a broken home and had an abusive father herself so I don't think she's really aware that this isn't what a marriage is supposed to be.

How do I help her out and put a stop to the abuse? I don't know what to do and I don't think I can take another night of listening to him attack her until she cries. What do I do?

Plastic Bags to Be Banned in New York; Second Statewide Ban, After California

New York State lawmakers have agreed to impose a statewide ban on most types of single-use plastic bags from retail sales, changing a way of life for millions of New Yorkers as legislators seek to curb an unsightly and omnipresent source of litter.

The plan, proposed a year ago by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, would be the second statewide ban, after California, which banned bags in 2016. Hawaii also effectively has a ban in place, since all the state’s counties bar such single-use bags.

New York’s ban, which would begin next March, would forbid stores to provide customers with single-use plastic bags, which are nonbiodegradable and have been blamed for everything from causing gruesome wildlife deaths to thwarting recycling efforts.

The ban, which is expected to be part of the state’s budget bills that are slated to be passed by Monday, would have a number of carveouts, including food takeout bags used by restaurants, bags used to wrap deli or meat counter products and bags for bulk items. Newspaper bags would also be exempted, as would garment bags and bags sold in bulk, such as trash or recycling bags.

Flying over the United States

Have you ever done it?

It made me realize just how RURAL this country is.

You can fly hours and hours, over deserts, and plains, and mountains, and only occasionally pass a city or urban area, here and there.

The majority of this country is just open land, and much of it is in the Western United States.

Try flying cross-country, once or twice, and you'll see what I mean.

Then it will make much more sense why this country is full of Deplorables.

Cities are few and far between, and all of the Liberals and Progressives are concentrated in these areas.

The rest of the country is basically Bumfucke.

Let’s Piece Together the Trump Presidency Conspiracy

2. Jeffery Epstein and Trump become acquaintances in the 80s, as Trump is digging financial holes on a trajectory to bankruptcies and Epstein uses his contacts to setup a secretive Pedo ring. Fat Billy is working on his Iran-Contra scandal.

3. 90s: later on Trump and Epstein are accused of raping a 13yo... case dismissed after accuser is allegedly threatened. Trump no longer viable for US lenders and turns to Russia. Presidential aspirations thrown around. The KGB is watching.

4. 2000s: Trump still in with the Clintons & Hollywood. He is mainstream’d to the American people with ‘The Apprentice’. Hard financial times again for Dump, much more Russian money.

5. 2010s: Obama 2nd term. Trump visits Russia, peepee. Putin decides to destroy America through Redneck’s mental weakness. Trump and Fat Billy agree to hide their kompromat and Trump family is about to face severe legal issues.

Rosario Dawson comes out of the closet!!!!

Cory Booker, you in danger, gurl!

Rosario Dawson has come out in a candid interview in which she discussed her relationship with Cory Booker.

In 2018, Dawson shared a post on Instagram in celebration of Pride month, which many at the time took to mean she was coming out herself. During a conversation with Bustle, however, she clarified that it wasn't her intention to do so in the post — though she is now officially coming out.

"People kept saying that I [came out]... I didn’t do that," she said. "I mean, it’s not inaccurate, but I never did come out come out. I mean, I guess I am now."

Though Dawson has not shared how she identifies, she added, "I’ve never had a relationship in that space, so it’s never felt like an authentic calling to me."

In 2018, she shared a post writing, "happy pride month! sending love to my fellow lgbtq+ homies. keep being strong in the face of adversity. loud & proud. here’s a lil throwbyke to last year."

Dawson and Booker went public with their relationship in late 2018 after months of speculation, and the actress has spoken out about dating him in interviews.

In an interview with Women's Health, she opened up about the sweet morning ritual they share, telling the magazine, "Every morning that we don’t wake up together, he sends me a song, which means every morning he holds our relationship in his mind and heart for a few minutes before he goes off into his big day."

I will NOT vote for Bloomberg if the powers that be select him as our Democratic nominee

Like, it just ain't gonna happen. I'll vote for Biden, Buttitsagig, Klobuchar - hell, I'll vote for fucking Steyer, but I'm not voting for Bloomberg. The levels of shit (that are completely verifiable by virtue of the fact that most of it he has been caught on tape and video saying within the last decade) is un[bold]fucking[/bold]believable. I cannot comprehend how anyone in the Democratic Party (or the Independent, for that matter) can justify this man's words, behavior and actions.

He is no better than Trump and there is nothing you can say that will convince me otherwise. He wears his mask better and tighter, I'll give him that, but he is an elitist, racist, homophone (especially, if as rumored, "he's in the closet") and I don't trust his ass. From extending his stay as Mayor of New York to a third term (hello Maduro in Venezuela!) to banning soda (Communism/Authoritarianism) to all of the vile things that have come out of his puny, decrepit mouth, this man is what is wrong with the establishment personified.

Yesterday I was conversing with a Dem and a Rep and in a moment of intense rage I actually said, "I'll vote for fucking Donald Trump if Bloomberg is forced on us!" I couldn't fucking believe that came out. I was shocked and disgusted by what I had fleetingly entertained. I won't go that far but I will not vote.

Years of smearing Senator Bernie Sanders for some of the craziest off-the-wall lies I've ever read, and you expect us to even entertain this douche bag?

How to compute the number of people who have responded to a DL poll

Since the DL doesn't show the number of people who have responded to a poll, here's a trick to figure it out. You can only use the trick once, before you participate to the poll. After you do respond to the poll, you can never use the trick again. With that said, here's how it goes:

(1) Start with the poll for which you want to compute the number of participants. Do NOT participate yet.

(2) Click on "Show results"

(3) Write down the current percentage, as a number between 0 and 100, for one of the voting options (maybe pick what you would vote for, but do not vote for it yet). Call it p1. For instance if the poll is about your favorite musical instrument, and it lists "piano" as one option, and suppose that option currently polls at 66%, then write down p1=66.

(4) Now reload the question, and go ahead and vote for that option. After that, click to see the results, and write down the new percentage for that option (again as a number between 0 and 100). Call it p2. For instance, if you now read 68%, then write down p2=68.

The number of participants (including you) is given by the following formula:

N=(100-p1) / (p2 - p1)

In my example above it gives N = (100-66) / (68 - 66) = 17.

Joe Biden is confronted over deportation record by immigrant rights protesters outside Las Vegas event

Former Vice President Joe Biden was confronted by a group of chanting immigrant rights protesters outside a campaign event Tuesday night in Las Vegas' Chinatown.

Biden had headlined an event tailored to Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders at Harbor Palace Seafood Restaurant, but as he walked outside to take pictures with the crowd that had gathered he was approached by a group of undocumented activists, shaming him for not committing to halt deportations.

About 10 women from the group United We Dream Action yelled and scream-talked in the direction of Biden and held up a banner that read 'Biden Commit 2 Stop All Deportations.'

'We are here just to ask Joe Biden to give us a strong commitment to stopping all deportations,' said Carla, an undocumented immigrant from Charleston, South Carolina who declined to give DailyMail.com her last name.

Carla explained that the former vice president hasn't committed fully to stopping deportations. 'His constant answer is I will, but if people have criminal backgrounds they will be deported.' She explained that Biden's answer hasn't been good enough because the Trump administration has defined law-breaking undocumented immigrants to 'anyone and anything.'

But the ruckus had prompted Biden to head back inside - to take more pictures with potential supporters from the Asian-American community.

Ironically, Biden's entire speech Tuesday was dedicated to increasing immigration flows, as he called President Trump's attitude clamping down on the numbers of immigrants 'absolutely bizarre.'

Jordan Peterson GOES PUBLIC as Drug Addict

In November, he went to a rehabilitation centre in New York.

His conditioned worsened through the winter, and was driven to thoughts of suicide by a movement disorder called akathisia, a well known side effect of various drugs for mental illnesses. It is a sense of restlessness and an inability to sit still

the family sought alternative treatment in Russia because they found North American hospitals had misdiagnosed him, and were prescribing “more medications to cover the response he was experiencing from the benzodiazepines,” Mikhaila (his daughter) said. “He nearly died several times.”

She and her husband took him to Moscow last month, where he was diagnosed with pneumonia and put into an induced coma for eight days. She said his withdrawal was “horrific,” worse than anything she had ever heard about. She said Russian doctors are not influenced by pharmaceutical companies to treat the side-effects of one drug with more drugs, and that they “have the guts to medically detox someone from benzodiazepines.”

Jordan Peterson has only just come out of an intensive care unit, Mikhaila said. He has neurological damage, and a long way to go to full recovery. He is taking anti-seizure medication and cannot type or walk unaided, but is “on the mend” and his sense of humour has returned..

'The Invisible Man' becomes early Oscar favorite for 2021

The early reviews are calling it a masterpiece of tension and Elisabeth Moss a shoo-in for an Oscar nomination giving her best performance to date. Oliver Jackson-Cohen is about to become a huge star playing the invisible man.

Wow: #TheInvisibleMan elevates @LWhannell to a full blown master of horror. Beautifully written, impeccably shot and some of the most suffocating moments of genuine terror you’ll ever experience.

After seeing #TheInvisibleMan I’m excited for more and more people to see it. Truly a modern horror story with no ghosts, just the terror of reality. Goes without saying that Elisabeth Moss is brilliant

Brief thoughts (since I've seen some others talking about it): W/#TheInvisibleMan, Leigh Whannell has crafted a masterclass in tension and terror, and I think my jaw was left on the floor at least twice. Completely thrilling, visceral and emotional.

#TheInvisibleMan is a terrifying masterpiece of futuristic horror noir brilliantly directed by @LWhannell . #ElisabethMoss is outstanding! You’ll FEEL every second of her claustrophobic fear. #BenjaminWallfisch ‘s score is a contender for best score of 2020. What an experience...

Awkward Straight Guy Hookup Stories

Ok. I took a cross country vacation to visit a friend a couple of years after leaving college. So on the first night, he drove me around to see some sights in his city then we went to eat, then drank at a bar.

He was always a light weight so I was surprised he was drinking more and even took a few shots. Not really a big deal, but he got hammered, couldn't drive, and I couldn't get a clear response when I would ask him what his address was so I could at least try to drive us to his place. I ended up carrying him a few block to a hotel and rented a double-bed room with a late check out time (figuring he would be hung over).

I carried him up and, literally, as soon as we are in the room he starts getting naked. I push him to a bed and go to the restroom, but he kept following me and trying to get me naked. He was drunk and I was trying to ignore him, but he essentially dry humped me while I washed up and brushed my teeth.

He did get me naked eventually but I didn't let him do anything more then lay with him and hump me while I went to sleep. In the morning, my side and back were caked in semen. He was really embarrassed. I made him shower with me an wash it off. That led to proper fooling around until we checked out.

Your turn.

Grey's Actor Jake Borelli to Lead Gay-Themed Valentine's Movie at Freeform

Freeform on Monday greenlit its first-ever Valentine’s Day movie — and with no disrespect to Sally, this romantic comedy is all about Harry.

Titled The Thing About Harry, the gay-themed original film will center on high school enemies Sam (played by Grey’s Anatomy‘s Jake Borelli) and Harry (newcomer Niko Terho), who are forced to share a car ride to their Missouri hometown for a friend’s engagement party on Valentine’s Day. But when Sam learns Harry has come out, things take a turn, and the two men “begin to develop a deep friendship — with neither admitting a potential romance may be brewing — leaving them wondering if one road trip could change the rest of their lives,” the project’s logline reads.

Borelli’s Sam is described as a “handsome, funny, neurotic, intelligent gay man” who has both “a scathing wit” and “an overly idealistic worldview.” Sam came out when he was still in high school, for which he was constantly bullied in his small Missouri town. Terho’s Harry, meanwhile, is an “emotionally uncomplicated, promiscuous player” who secretly “yearns for love, family and stability,” even though commitment terrifies him.

Queer Eye‘s Karamo Brown will co-star as Paul, a gay man who is both “exceedingly well put-together” yet “overbearing and pretentious,” while GLOW‘s Britt Baron will play Stasia, Sam’s edgy and opinionated best friend. Peter Paige (The Fosters) will direct the movie and appear as Sam’s warm-hearted roommate, Casey.

“It’s been an honor to partner with Freeform in making great television with LGBTQ+ characters as leads,” executive producers Paige, Greg Gugliotta and F.J. Denny said in a statement. “True equality can only be achieved when you see yourself reflected in the movies, music and stories that paint our culture. As young gay men in the 90s, whenever a rom-com opened, we would watch the leading lady fall in love, and imagine what it would be like if the boy was saying all those things to another boy. We’ve always wanted to make a movie — an unabashedly romantic comedy — that queer boys wouldn’t have to translate. It’s rewarding to take the genre to a new, all-inclusive level.”

The Thing About Harry is, fittingly, slated for a February 2020 premiere on Freeform.

Bloomberg’s health issues: a heart attack AND cancer

Details: Bloomberg underwent a coronary stent placement for a blocked artery in 2000, and his doctor reports that he has undergone routine cardiac stress testing since then.

In 2018, Bloomberg developed atrial fibrillation — a form of irregular heartbeat — for which he now takes a blood thinner. Bloomberg also takes medicine to control his cholesterol, in addition to a beta-blocker. Bloomberg's doctors says he has also had "small skin cancers removed, and is treated for arthritis and heartburn, both of which are well controlled." The letter also notes that Bloomberg "exercises several times a week and plays golf avidly."

CNN Gives Voice To The Far Right in Limbaugh's Homophobic Attack On Mayor Pete

Dying cancer-ridden Rush Limbaugh went after Mayor Pete in an offensive homophobic diatribe on his radio program while describing the unbearable thought of Pete and his husband being affectionate. He attacked Pete's supposed lack of masculinity in contrast to that of the grandmaster macho nacho he-man that is tRump. So for in depth analysis, the esteemed CNN in their infinite wisdom turns to who else but their paid homophobic right wing shill, Ben Ferguson, for commentary.

First, I find it rich that a dying, fat, drug addicted nazi talk show host, and a fat obese orange megalomaniac, and a fat fem paid right wing CNN commentator are questioning 38 year old, virile,military man Pete's masculinity. Please, old dying fatties.

And secondly, why did CNN bring on a homophobe to discuss a homophobe without a counterpoint? Straight CNN hosts do not speak for the gay community so the network should have brought in a gay political rep to get a response. Is that so difficult for the show runners to contemplate?

Fuck CNN. They gave rise to tRump and then he turned on them like he does to everyone. And like abused children they still beg daddy for attention no matter how negative and painful it is. Fuck CNN hard.

Julián Castro Says on MSNBC That Bloomberg Is Trump’s ‘Wet Dream’

Former 2020 Democratic candidate turned Elizebeth Warren surrogate Julián Castro joined Chuck Todd on MSNBC to state that Micheal Bloomberg is actually Donald Trump’s “wet dream.”

Todd began the segment by floating to Castro, “I got to assume there’s an opportunity for this campaign with Michael Bloomberg on this stage.”

“Elizabeth Warren’s campaign I would argue is framed around dealing with the Michael Bloomberg’s of the world not as a candidate, but the billionaires,” he continued.

Castro said, “You have Michael Bloomberg, basically someone that was called by The New York Times as the most outspoken defender of Wall Street, and in Elizabeth Warren, someone who has been fighting for every day Americans for consumers, for folks who are losing their homes… She’s been on the side of the American people. And Bloomberg has been making excuses for the status quo.”

“So, tomorrow when they debate, you’re going to have two different visions for America. Hers is a vision that for all the rest of us can prosper,” Castro added.

“What do you make of these sort of late conversions?” Todd asked regarding Bloomberg pushing out policy initiatives on the campaign trail behind Warren’s plans.

Castro stated that he thinks that Bloomberg is “the closest thing we have to a Donald Trump on the Democratic side… If you look at his weaknesses.”

“Wow!” Todd responded.

“There are a lot of people out there that think that — maybe the best thing we can do is nominate a billionaire like Bloomberg because he has the resources. I think if you look at his record on race, on Wall Street, all of these sexual harassment complaints that were filed against him, he settled and has hush agreements with women on,” Castro continued.

“He is actually Donald Trump’s wet dream,” Castro stated with sincerity.

“Donald Trump wants to run against the guy that has all of this baggage on exactly the issues where Trump can suppress the vote,” Castro added.

The MSNBC host then asked Castro if Bloomberg is the worst candidate in the Democratic field currently.

“I think he has the most baggage. And he gives Trump an opportunity to win back the Electoral College,” Castro concluded.

Help! The Bartender I Hooked Up With Has Banned Me From My Favorite Bar.

I was a regular at this bar for most of last year, going at least once a week. I became good friends with one of the bartenders and started to develop feelings for him. Eventually, I asked him out. He said that he was seeing someone else and they were exclusive. I accepted the answer, and we continued to interact as friends at the bar. A couple of weeks later, after his shift was over, a few staff members of the bar and me and a friend all went to another bar. The bartender was there too, and basically, he invited me to his place after we kissed. We hooked up, and the following morning, he sent me a message asking me not to come to the two bars where he works until we had a conversation about the hookup. He went totally silent for a few days, and when we finally talked, he was 45 minutes late and only ended up talking to me for 10 minutes. He said he was embarrassed about the hookup. I told him there was nothing to be embarrassed about. We decided to keep being friends. I went to his bar a couple of times after, and he was totally hot and cold, sometimes being friendly and other times ignoring me for an hour, even though he had been serving me drinks. He kept doing this at his second bar, and at one point, I called him a coward while there were no other customers there and only one other employee. Since that incident, he has told the staff and managers at the bar where I was a regular that he feels uncomfortable around me and that I was yelling at him. (I didn’t yell.) He told me I was banned from that bar. I spoke to the manager, and he said I should wait a couple of weeks until tempers cool before going back. This weekend, a bartender who used to work at this bar told me he heard from multiple people that I “went psycho.”

I feel like the bartender I hooked up with is making me out to be a stereotypical “crazy” woman. I recognize I confronted him at work, but I genuinely don’t think that justifies banning me from both bars and telling people that I’m crazy or whatever. I feel like I am being gaslit. He is treating me like such a villain even though he has been inconsiderate to me this entire time. I want to speak again to the manager because I feel like I am being unfairly treated. What do you think I should do?

Why this professor's climate-crisis solution is rankling Twitter: 'The worst thing you can do is have a child'

An academic is adding her voice to the rising chorus of climate-crisis alarm bells with a newly published manifesto that has been attracting widespread attention for its radical ideas — particularly “antinatalism,” or the end of reproduction as a way of phasing out of the human race.

“I mean, it’s a really basic idea: In terms of carbon footprint, the worst thing you can do is have a child,” Patricia MacCormack, a philosophy professor at Cambridge’s Anglia Ruskin University, tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “And it’s the one taboo that nobody wants to speak.”

MacCormack’s argument centers on overpopulation — if human beings cause climate change by creating greenhouse gases, then more humans mean more emissions. One study, for instance, found that that the “carbon legacy” of just one child creates 20 times more greenhouse gas than one can save by recycling, or driving an electric car. It’s something plenty of families have been taking into account for years — even Prince Harry, who said recently that he and Meghan Markle would have two children, “maximum,” for the sake of the planet, noting, “We are the one species on this planet that seems to think that this place belongs to us, and only us.”

It’s a controversial stance, however, and MacCormack says that since the release of her book, The Ahuman Manifesto, the teacher, researcher and “old-school goth” London DJ has received “hate mail, death threats, ‘go kill yourself,’ stuff like that,” she says, adding that an Italian news outlet called her “delusional.” Others have dug up photos of her in full-goth getups, “thinking it’s insulting.”

MacCormack, who largely stays away from social media, says she’s found the angry reaction intriguing. “I simply propose people not reproduce, and it automatically translated into acts of violence,” she says. “So, somehow, I want to kill children, which is ridiculous. Somehow, I’m proposing eugenics or some kind of ethnic population control … and I think that what that shows is there is an anthropocentric — or a human — impulse to read acts of grace as, automatically, acts of violence. And that says a lot more about the people not reading the book and just taking over the message.”

The vitriol is understandable, though, she says, because, “when people are confronted with something that makes them afraid of the tenuous nature of their own position … they have a choice: to either go through their fear and lose themselves, and perhaps enter into a creative relationship with the opposition so that both parties come out thinking new, or, that fear transforms into aggression in order to maintain their sense of self and that position.”

That idea, of people having to confront ideas that they’ve always believed to be right and true, is “triggering,” MacCormack says. “And rather than engage with the possibility that there are multiple truths in certain scenarios, they have to defend the precarity of their own identity. And they use threats and violence to do so.”

In fact, says a doubling-down MacCormack about the concept of antinatalism, “Not only does having a child really increase your carbon footprint, but we are living on an earth where there are a lot of organisms — human, non-human — that are in desperate need of care. And so, for me, if people want to care for children, for animals, whatever, there are cries for care everywhere.” In light of that, she says, “I’m asking us to reflect on this idea that we need to reproduce.” Further, she believes such a lifestyle would come with great freedom for women.

“We have to start thinking about what liberty does it give women when they no longer have to explain why they don't want children? When they no longer have to sneak off to a different state to get reproductive freedom? When they are no longer defined by the maternal roles?”

A Manhattan village owned by black people was destroyed to build Central Park

White people doing what they do best and continue to do in modern day... then they question why black people hold anger toward them.

“ The community, called Seneca Village, began in 1825 and eventually spanned from 82nd Street to 89th Street along what is now the western edge of Central Park. By the time it was finally razed in 1857, it had become a refuge for African Americans. Though most were nominally free (the last slave wasn’t emancipated until 1827) life was far from pleasant. The population of African Americans living in New York City tripled between abolition and complete emancipation and the migrants were derided in the press. Mordecai Noah, founder of The New York Enquirer, was especially well-known for his attacks on African Americans, fuming at one point that “the free negroes of this city are a nuisance incomparably greater than a million slaves.”

Most landowners at the time refused to sell to African Americans. A white couple who lived in what was then a distant northern outpost of Manhattan was an exception, subdividing and selling off their land first to Epiphany Davis and Andrew Williams, two prominent members of the The New York African Society for Mutual Relief, and then to the AME Zion Church. More members of the African Society, whose purpose was in part to build black communities, followed suit and purchased land too. Slowly, houses were built. Some of them were rather grand, two-story affairs, with barns and stables, and some were modest shacks. The area was eventually anchored by three churches and a school.

Owning land in Seneca Village meant more than finding a refuge from the slums and violence of Manhattan proper. Buying property meant voting rights (at least for men), as laws in New York at the time required that all voters own at least $250 worth of real estate. Seneca Village probably had a more radical purpose, too, as a stop on the Underground Railroad. Prominent abolitionists such as Albro Lyons, later recognized as a conductor on the railroad, owned land and lived there. In fact, the African Society so instrumental in founding the village was reputed to have a hidden basement for hiding runaway slaves. And the name of the village itself may have come from a philosophy tract called Seneca’s Morals, a book that was popular with abolitionist activists.

As Seneca Village was building up, however, support for Central Park grew, driven by some of the same pressures that created the African American enclave. The tip of the island of Manhattan was overflowing with people. The slums were spilling over as more and more immigrants arrived, especially after the Irish potato famine started in 1845. None of these conditions appealed to well-off New Yorkers, who had already started migrating further uptown, or out of town, by the 1840s. Already, the Lennox family and other wealthy New York names owned swaths of land in the vicinity of the proposed park. Real estate developers easily foresaw the demand for an exclusive neighborhood bordering parklands.

More than three-fourths of the children who lived in Seneca Village attended Colored School №3 in the church basement. Half of the African Americans who lived there owned their own property, a rate five times higher than the city average. And while the village remained mostly black, immigrant whites had started to live in the area as well. They shared resources ranging from a church (All Angels Episcopal), to a midwife (an Irish immigrant who served the entire town).

But in 1857, it was all torn down.

Bloomberg is running the "Death Star" of presidential campaigns

Harry Styles robbed at knifepoint on Valentines Day

Harry Styles was left shaken up after he was robbed at knifepoint on Valentine's Day.

The former One Direction singer, 26, was on a night out in Hampstead in London when he was confronted by a man who threatened him.

The robber pulled out a knife and demanded cash, Mirror Online can exclusively reveal. He acted quickly and handed over the cash, luckily leaving the musician unharmed. A source told us: "He actually played it pretty cool, quickly giving the assailant cash, keeping himself and the guy calm and getting the situation over with. "Understandably though it left him very shaken up afterwards."

If there was an app that let you build your perfect man, what would he come out looking like?

But there is a catch, this is the only person you can create with the app. Everyone only has one time to get the person right, and then they are yours for the rest of your life.

Post an image of who they would most resemble that’s an actual person.

Madonna Makes History as First Artist to Score 50 #1s on Any Single Billboard Chart

Madonna has made history with her Madame X single “I Don’t Search I Find” which has become her 50th #1 single on the Billboard Dance Chart.

Billboard reports: “Madonna outpaces runner-up Rihanna, who has notched 33 No. 1s. Beyoncé and Janet Jackson follow with 22 and 20 leaders, respectively. With the coronation, Madonna additionally becomes the first act to have scored at least one No. 1 on Dance Club Songs in five separate decades, having tallied nine in the 1980s, 13 in the ’90s, 18 in the 2000s, nine in the ’10s and, now, one (so far) in the ’20s. Madonna is also the first act ever to score as many as 50 No. 1s on any single Billboard chart, extending her record over George Strait, who has earned 44 leaders on Hot Country Songs.”

The only time I can ever remember being happy in my body was when I was pregnant. (The miracle my body created still astounds me.) In college I decided I was bi, but that never seemed to fit. I found women attractive, but was not aroused by them.

Philly's Legendary Gayborhood Coming to an End

Philadelphia Magazine (DL won't allow link)

There Goes the Gayborhood

Rapid social change and Midtown Village development are encroaching on Philadelphia’s LGBTQ mecca. Should we mourn its loss or embrace its evolution?

It was around one o’clock in the morning, and I was standing in a long line of mostly straight Penn alumni waiting to enter Voyeur Nightclub. It was a drunk former classmate — at least, I hope he was drunk — who said it: “Isn’t this where the fags go?”

The occasion was the official after-party for my five-year college reunion, which was held at one of the most popular dance parties in the Gayborhood. The reunion committee’s idea had been innocent enough: Given that most other clubs in Philly shut down at 2 a.m., why not venture where we could let the good times roll until 3:30?

But once we were inside, all of us, gay and straight, saw things we weren’t expecting. It wasn’t long, for example, before visibly uncomfortable alumni were side-eyeing transgender women going to get drinks at the bar. For me, it was a sea of straight women cheering on a sash-wearing bride-to-be and refusing to share space on one of the dance floors on which I had spent so much time growing comfortable with my own identity. Worse, the racial segregation was unmistakable: Black and brown attendees were packed in a smaller upstairs lounge that was pumping out hip-hop hits, while the main floor was predominantly white, with a DJ spinning mostly dance/techno pop music.

“There goes the neighborhood,” I thought as the last illusion I had of this part of the city as an inclusive yet uniquely gay space dissolved before my eyes.

Over the past few years, the “death of the Gayborhood” — a phrase once uttered in mock horror whenever a favorite hangout changed hands or a well-known institution screwed up — has taken on an air of inevitability. The area’s legendary staples, 12th Street Gym and More Than Just Ice Cream, are no more. Two popular Gayborhood bars, Venture Inn and ICandy, have closed down, and Voyeur and Woody’s have tried to broaden their customer base by hosting bachelorette parties, exotic male revue shows for women, and even NFL watch parties. Mazzoni, the city’s leading LGBTQ health-care center, relocated and lost its executive director and senior management amid staff turmoil. Franny Price, the veteran producer of Philly Pride — one of the country’s largest annual gay celebrations — is stepping down after more than 25 years, with no successor in sight.

Coloring all of this loss are a host of gentrification and diversity issues with which the city’s LGBTQ community has only recently begun to grapple. Yet in the wider Philadelphia culture, LGBTQ representation and acceptance are at an all-time high. We saw this in the political arena in 2018, when two openly gay black candidates, Malcolm Kenyatta and Alex Deering, competed for a state House seat in the 181st District — a section of North Philadelphia that’s both geographically and economically distant from the Gayborhood. (Kenyatta would go on to win, joining Gayborhood-area Representative Brian Sims as the state’s only two openly gay legislators.) Then, in 2019, five openly LGBTQ candidates ran in the City Council primary.

Citywide, LGBTQ visibility is similarly increasing in the cultural realm: Large-scale LGBTQ-themed events have moved beyond the traditional Pride weekend in June and Outfest in October, and many former Gayborhood event producers and performers are booking venues throughout the city. For many Philadelphians, the Gayborhood is no longer the sole place for an LGBTQ experience, but just another option in a growing field of inclusive alternatives.

During this 50th anniversary year of the Stonewall riots in New York, which brought the gay rights movement in the U.S. to mainstream attention, members of Philly’s LGBTQ community are reflecting — some wistfully, some critically — on what the Gayborhood means today, and wondering whether there’s really anything left to be lost by venturing outside the neighborhood’s now-fading rainbow-painted crosswalks.

Queen BANS Prince Harry & Meghan Markle from using 'Sussex Royal' brand

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex must drop their 'Sussex Royal' label after deciding to step down as working royals.

Following lengthy and complex talks, the Queen and senior officials are believed to have agreed it is no longer tenable for the couple to keep the word 'royal' in their 'branding'.Harry and Meghan have spent tens of thousands of pounds on a new Sussex Royal website to complement their hugely popular Instagram feed.

They have also sought to register Sussex Royal as a global trademark for a range of items and activities, including clothing, stationery, books and teaching materials. In addition, they have taken steps to set up a new charitable organisation: Sussex Royal, The Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

It has now been made clear that they will need to 're-brand'. The Mail understands that, amid what has been described as a 'complex' situation, the 'fine detail' is still being thrashed out.

However, it is understood the couple have accepted that, as part of their new working arrangements, they will not be able to use the Sussex Royal name as they had hoped. The development is thought to represent a major blow to the Sussexes, who now face starting again and re-registering everything from their website to their charity under a new label.

Harry and Meghan first began using the Sussex Royal branding this time last year, after they split their household from that of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – known as Kensington Royal. The Sussexes' Instagram page, @sussexroyal, has amassed 11.2million followers – the same number of fans as William and Kate's account.

It was a natural progression, therefore, for Harry and Meghan to use the moniker for their new charitable foundation, due to be launched this year with the support of Buckingham Palace. And as they secretly prepared for a new life in Canada, it was clear that Sussex Royal was at the forefront of Harry and Meghan's plans.

Dozens of trademark applications were made for everything from bandanas to notebooks – although sources have always stressed that these were preventative measures to protect the trademark from others, and never intended for commercial use.

The couple also privately commissioned a new website. It went live last month to coincide with their bombshell announcement, with the introduction: 'Welcome to the Sussex Royal community, your source for information on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.'

The couple's decision to step down as senior working royals and pursue 'financial independence' put a spanner in the Sussex Royal works. It placed the Queen in an invidious position, given her long-held conviction of refusing to allow working members of the family to profit from their positions. Announcing Her Majesty's decision to allow her grandson and his wife to pursue a new life abroad, officials made clear that the Sussex Royal title would still need to be re-evaluated.

All members of the family – including Harry and Meghan – were involved in the discussions, and it is understood they all agreed that, in light of the Sussexes' decision to step back, their use of the word 'royal' would come into question. Now, as well as giving up their HRH titles for work purposes and abandoning official appointments and patronages – including Harry's military roles – the Sussex Royal brand will have to be abandoned. Such is the sensitivity around the issue, Buckingham Palace officials would not discuss the developments last night.

A source told the Mail: 'In many ways this is inevitable given their decision to step down, but it must surely come as a blow to the couple as they have invested everything into the Sussex Royal brand The Queen would have had little choice, however.

'The Sussexes' original plan – of being half-in, half-out working royals – was never going to work. Obviously, as the Queen has made clear, they are still much-loved members of her family. But if they aren't carrying out official duties and are now seeking other commercial opportunities, they simply cannot be allowed to market themselves as royals.'

Barrett Long, famously hung ex-gay for pay pornstar, has had an EXTREMELY ROUGH year

I was feeling a bit nostalgic during this morning's jerk-off sesh and decided to see what old Barrett has been up to lately.

Unsurprisingly, no new material, but thanks to some threads from you bitches I discovered he was still alive and active on public social media accounts under his real name. EXCEPT -- he abruptly stopped posting at the end of 2018.

Curiosity got the better of me, googled him, and discovered via public records that Barrett has been absolutely GOING THRU some shit.

His disappearance at the end of 2018 coincides with him being taking to court for a Domestic Violence Restraining Order. Things weren't so great behind the scenes with the girlfriend after all, I figured. NOPE. Turns out it was HIS OWN MOM filing it.

Then, just days after his mom files a DVRO against him, he gets a fucking DUI.

THEN, start of 2019, he gets arrested for violating the restraining order.

And just a few weeks after, he's done for VEHICLE THEFT, evading police, vandalism totalling more than $5000. From what I can tell, it's at this point he was thrown into jail, where I guess he spent a good chunk of 2019. In September, after he got out I guess, he petitions for bankruptcy, but gets halfway through the process before bailing. Also, Shortly thereafter in November he's ARRESTED AGAIN for violating his probation. The revocation hearing date for the violation is the last I can find.

Pretty fucking sad. Dude's entire life blew the fuck up in the space of a year -- and he seemed to be doing a good job of flying straight for many years prior to that after he left the biz.

What do you reckon caused it? I can only guess drugs given the DUI and extremely rapid turnover of life fuckery.

Advice in Salary Negotiation

I haven’t been formally offered the job yet, but the interview I had today with the CEO was VERY promising. He asked me to think about it, then get back to him by the end of the week with bullet points of what I would do strategy-wise and also my salary expectations.

I don’t want to come in too high, and of course not undervalue myself. He didn’t give me a salary range, but it’s an important position and similar positions in NYC pay $110,000-125,000.

The problem is they are a German company, and they may have different ideas of salary compared to the US. So if I give them that number above, they may scoff and move on to someone else.

When did Manhattan become one giant mall?

I haven't been back to Manhattan in a long time, but I'm visiting this weekend. I feel like a martian dropped onto another planet. I knew Times Square had been totally sanitized, but what the HELL has happened to Broadway on the Upper West Side? There's Zabars and that nasty Fairway, but other than that, it's Lululemon, Zara, Blue Mercury, and other chains as far as the eye can see. Met a friend in Soho and felt like I was in a new retail "development" in Northern Virginia. Just got back from the new Hudson Yards, and it looks like Vegas -- garish, with Dior and Fendi and sterile mall-ish hallways. WTF! I'm going to the Village tomorrow and cringe at what I'll find there. What the hell, Manhattan!

Hot dads at Costco

While visiting my parents for the holidays, I accompanied my stepmom to Costco the day before Christmas Eve. I don't have a Costco membership and find it rather absurd to shop there unless you have a huge family and buy in bulk; I haven't been in one in years, but I assumed it would be full of grumpy fraus madly racing down the aisles in shopping carts—which turned out to be true—but what I wasn't prepared for was how many hot dads were shopping. I saw so many good-looking men in there that I couldn't believe it, most of them (ostensibly) young to middle-aged dads. Maybe having a membership is worth it?

This all went down last May, so...maybe Tamra needs a storyline to get her job back.

"Last May, Simon noticed his salivary glands were swollen on one side and went to the doctor to have them checked out.

Although doctors initially thought Simon was suffering from some sort of infection, an ultrasound and biopsy discovered other areas were also affected, including the side of his neck. A short time later, he was diagnosed with cancer and during a follow-up appointment, Simon learned the cancer had spread to his throat, tonsils and lymph nodes.

Because the cancer was too spread out for surgery, Simon is going through an aggressive treatment plan of chemotherapy every three weeks and radiation five days each week for seven weeks."

Somewhere in Time (1980)

When I worked in a music store, "Somewhere in Time" was one of the top-selling soundtracks every year.

It was considered a box-office disappointment in the US. It played in theatres in Hong Kong for eighteen months and is one of the highest-grossing films in China.

Elise's line "Is it you?" was actually flubbed by Jane Seymour during the take that's in the film, and she had to rerecord it in post-production. She said it is the most misunderstood line in the movie, sounding like she says, "Is a Jew?"

It was the film debut of William H. Macy, George Wendt and Tim Kazurinsky.

Squat Lesbian UC President Janet Napolitano Threatens Striking UCSC Grad Students with Mass Firing

In a dramatic escalation of University of California officials’ effort to break the UC Santa Cruz graduate student wildcat teaching strike, UC President Janet Napolitano has threatened scores of student teaching assistants and course instructors with “termination of existing employment at the University” if they do not submit grades they are withholding by this coming Friday, Feb. 21st.

Napolitano delivered the draconian and unprecedented ultimatum in a letter to UCSC faculty, staff, and students this past Friday. UCSC Executive Vice Chancellor Lori Kletzer likewise vowed in a Friday letter to UCSC faculty members that striking graduate students will be denied spring quarter employment if they do not turn in grades by Friday at 11:59 p.m., labeling her letter as "one final opportunity" for graduate students to submit to her administration's dictates.

The letters from Napolitano and Kletzer capped a dramatic first week of the wildcat teaching strike for a cost-of-living adjustment (COLA). Striking grad students are demanding a $1,412 per month to bring them out of rent burden in one of the country’s most expensive real estate markets. Crowds of up to 800 people picketed both entrances to campus for 10 hours a day, Monday through Friday, shutting down the main entrance to campus for portions of every day. A militarized university police force arrested 17 students. The police inflicted serious injuries on at least three students, one of whom suffered blunt-force trauma and a likely concussion, as noted in a harrowing report by KQED.

The threats to fire graduate students is connected to an earlier, ongoing iteration of the wildcat strike. During the fall quarter, hundreds of UCSC graduate student TAs and instructors refused to submit grades until they receive a COLA. As of the beginning of the current school term, roughly 12,000 grades were missing. Graduate students’ decision to begin a full teaching strike last week came only after a UCSC administrator announced the beginning of disciplinary proceedings against those who allegedly participated in the grading strike. Napolitano’s threat to fire graduate students en masse is a provocative and unprecedented escalation of that earlier warning.

Given that many students are already unable to afford housing in Santa Cruz’s hyper-inflated rental market on their meager teaching salaries, the vast majority would simply be unable to continue their studies at UCSC. International students would lose their status as full-time students and have their visas revoked.

UCSC graduate student workers are defending themselves by calling for a mass mobilization on Tuesday at the picket lines at each entrance to campus. They are also calling for broad-based solidarity actions and work stoppages from other students and workers. Graduate students at other UC campuses, in particular, are mobilizing significant escalations of their own COLA campaigns in solidarity with their UCSC counterparts. An online solidarity petition from non-UCSC faculty members nationwide has already gathered more than 2,000 signatures since Saturday.

Collectively, UCSC's striking grad students are meeting Napolitano's repressive -- in which she seems to be reprising her previous role as Department of Homeland Security secretary, in which she presided over the deportation of hundreds of thousands of people -- with greater determination and solidarity than ever.

The Immoderate Susan Collins: Why did the Maine senator gamble her legacy on Trump?

Last fall, Erik Mercer, a Maine social worker and psychotherapist, saw one of his senators, the Republican Susan Collins, while he was waiting for a plane in Washington, D.C. Mercer, a Democrat, had approached Collins on a plane once before, after the 2016 election, to thank her for a ferociously worded op-ed she had published before the election calling Donald Trump “unworthy of being our president” and declaring that she would not be voting for him.

This time, he asked if he could sit next to her and then described the trouble he was having explaining to his children that the president was above the law, mentioning particularly the terrible things Trump says about women. Collins, he recalled, replied that she didn’t believe the president had said anything bad about women for a while, and that she couldn’t comment further because she was a potential juror in his Senate trial. The conversation was frustrating, and he called a friend immediately afterward to complain about what he perceived as Collins’s lack of courage.

Mercer soon found himself just behind Collins on the jet bridge and overheard her tell another passenger that a constituent had just been “very rude” to her.

“He called me a coward,” Collins said to her companion.

Lindsey Graham openly accused of being blackmailed over "pretty serious sexual kink," "something pretty extreme"

Has anyone in media or notable on social media been this explicit about blackmail? The Chairman of the Democratic Coalition, Jon Cooper, and MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle just were in the span of a few days.

On Sunday, Cooper tweeted

[quote]A Republican just told me that he doubts @LindseyGrahamSC is kowtowing to Trump (and indirectly Putin) because he’s being blackmailed over his sexual orientation (an open secret) or even financial corruption. Rather, he thinks it probably involves some pretty serious sexual kink.

[quote]By the way, as an openly gay man myself, I couldn’t care less about Lindsey Graham's sex life (gay, straight or otherwise). However, Graham is the Senate Judiciary Chair and there’s a strong likelihood that he's being blackmailed by the Russians. If so, that needs to be revealed.

Then, on Tuesday Ruhle suggested

[quote]it could be that Donald Trump or somebody knows something pretty extreme about Lindsey Graham,' Ruhle replied with a smirk. 'We're gonna have to leave it there.'

WSJ: Maine's Susan Collins Faces Tough Re-Election Race This November

Boo-hoo!

WASHINGTON—The polarized political climate is taking a toll on Sen. Susan Collins (R., Maine), who is facing a competitive race for the first time since she won a Senate seat in 1996, according to a new poll conducted after her closely watched votes in President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial.

Some 42% of respondents to a Colby College poll said that they would vote for Ms. Collins in November, compared with 43% who said they would vote for her expected Democratic rival, Sara Gideon, Maine’s House speaker. Ms. Collins won her seat with close to or more than 60% of the vote for each of the past three contests after winning in 1996 with less than 50% of the vote.

“We’re not used to seeing Sen. Collins in a tight race,” said Dan Shea, a Colby professor of government and the lead researcher on the poll. “American politics has taken a dramatic turn in the last four to six years, and the broader question is whether or not the nationalization of American politics has spread to Maine as well.”

Ms. Collins is one of a handful of Republican incumbents Democrats are hoping to unseat in November as they make a push for the majority. Democrats would need to take four additional seats to achieve control of the Senate, or three seats if Democrats also win the White House and have the vice president to break ties in the chamber.

Contributing to the headwinds that face Ms. Collins are the pair of votes she has taken over the past year and a half, including one to confirm Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court after he was accused of sexual assault during his high-school years, allegations he denied. Among women, 36% said that they would vote for Ms. Collins, compared with 49% who said they would support Ms. Gideon. Ms. Collins’s support among women younger than 50 was even worse, with 25% saying that they would vote for her, compared with 56% who said they would support Ms. Gideon.

“She is hemorrhaging women voters,” Mr. Shea said. “We weren’t quite sure of the impact that the Kavanaugh vote would have on her brand, but it’s really popped up in this poll.”

Your favorite trashy Lifetime movie from the late '90s or 2000s

There are so many to choose from, but one of my favorites was "Lucky Girl" (2001), which starred Elisha Cuthbert as a teenage gambling addict. It was so ridiculous, but ultimately campy fun. "Fifteen and Pregnant" with Kirsten Dunst was another soapy doozy.

Randy Shilts' theory that AIDS came to the US during the bicentennial celebration the summer of 1976.

Was reading some stuff about Shilts, and he claimed that sailors from aroud the globe who gatherered in NYC that summer brought AIDS here. His theory was based on anecdotal evidence. I think it's an interesting theory and not implausible. Do you guys, especially those of you who were of age when the first cases were diagnosed, have an opinion of Shilt's theory? Thanks.

Stephen Miller is WED

You may now feel better about every decision you've ever made.

May they be as happy as that Trump-loving helicopter couple.

Katie Rose Waldman and Stephen Miller, who both work in the Trump White House, were married Feb. 16 at Trump International Hotel in Washington. Rabbi Aryeh Lightstone, who is a senior adviser to David Friedman, the United States ambassador to Israel, officiated.

Mrs. Miller, 28, is a special assistant to President Trump and the press secretary to Vice President Mike Pence. From November 2017 to February 2019, she served as a spokeswoman for the United States Department of Homeland Security during the tenure of Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

Mrs. Miller graduated from the University of Florida and received a master’s degree in public administration from George Washington University. She is a daughter of Sheryl Waldman and Glenn Waldman of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Mr. Miller 34, is a senior White House adviser, which includes serving as Mr. Trump’s top immigration adviser, directly shaping policies that aim to restrict the number of immigrants coming to the country.

Mr. Miller became the senior policy adviser on the Trump campaign in January 2016, and was appointed the policy director for the Trump transition team in November 2016.

He graduated from Duke. He is a son of Miriam Miller and Michael Miller of Los Angeles.

The couple had spoken many times on the phone in the course of their work, including multiple conference calls, but had never met in person. They were introduced by mutual friends on a Friday in spring 2018 and were engaged about a year and a half later.

Best TV soaps/shows to watch with a soap-aholic mother

Fellow DLers, I desperately need your infinite TV knowledge and sage recommendations. I’m visiting my 60-y.o. mom and trying to keep her entertained, and watch some TV shows together, during her recovery from surgery. She LOVES [bold]cheesy, ‘easy-watching’, good-vibe TV shows and romantic daytime soaps[/bold]. Problem is apparently she’s already seen many of the classic ones and I’m running out of fun ideas for her.

I’m a Millennial and usually watch depressing shows like Mad Men and gory ones like GoT - and don’t know what to find for her. Maybe any of you know of some hidden gems or something I’ve overlooked? Could be even one-season ones or good ol’ forgotten ones.

My mother doesn’t really like shows with too much gore, realistic drama, guns, slapstick comedies - she prefers watching very calm, slow-paced shows with beautiful people and elevator music :). Something with an overall soothing vibe, but not to the extreme of Hallmark Xtian eye-rollers. I tried getting her to watch DL-fave sitcoms like Golden Girls, but she said she doesn’t like sitcoms or watching old gals, but prefers ‘nice, escapist’ romantic shows about ‘beautiful, well-dressed people in their late 20s to 40s’.

The types of cheesy shows she’s already seen and loved, in order of preference:

(1) Fun old classics like Dynasty, Dallas, Moonlighting;

(2) Super-cheesy 90s and new daytime soaps where they mix romance and silly magic, like Passions (she was obsessed with its early seasons and loved all the camp ‘evil’ characters), 10th Kingdom, The Good Witch, Smallville.

(3) Post-2000 new shows about beautiful rich kids and their 1st-world problems: Gilmore Girls, 90210, One Tree Hill. She’s seen Beverly Hills, Melrose Place, the OC and thought they were ok but not the best for her taste. She didn’t like most of the leads in Desperate Housewives.

(4) Light-hearted, fun romantic legal comedies like Ally McBeal really pleased her. She also liked some legal dramas (The Good Wife, Billions, Suits), but I’m afraid legal dramas (or hospital soaps) might over-agitate or upset her during her recovery.

(5) The only ‘scary’ shows she liked were shows like Twin Peaks (the original one, not the creepier new one). She liked the original’s strangely soothing Badalamenti soundtrack, relaxed vibe and beautiful cast. She also liked Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries (the first seasons of both shows) - because of the beautiful actors and cheesy plot-lines (which made the gore not so scary), but it quickly got too repetetive and overly gory for her. She liked Lucifer (again, because of the good-looking leads) - but it’s more fun than scary.

She’s retro-watching Santa Barbara right now, but she says it seems too boring and most of the cast isn’t that beautiful.

Anyway, any recommendations?

Strangely, my mother hasn’t watched the big long-running ones: Days of Our Lives or All My Children. But those are such looong shows - which season is best?

If worst comes to worst and we can’t find any other or new shows/soaps to watch, I’m thinking maybe we can re-watch some seasons of Dallas or Dynasty together. But, again, which seasons of those shows are best?

For visual reference, this is the type of show that appeals to her:

Two Miami Gay Men May Have Been Shot Just for Kissing in Car

Two men in a moving vehicle were attacked this week in the Southwest Miami-Dade area by multiple shooters riding ATVs.

Clive Khouri believes he and his unnamed friend, who was shot in the head, were targeted because they are openly gay, WPLG Local 10 News reports.

“When I tried to speed off to come around this corner, they wouldn’t let me. They kept trying to shoot, shoot, shoot,” he said through tears. “Some of the guys probably saw us kissing in the car.”

“One to two, or possibly three all-terrain vehicles approached that car and opened fire,” said Miami-Dade Det. Alvaro Zabaleta of the triple shooting.

Khouri, whose head was grazed by a bullet, said his friend is in serious condition.

Shakena Jefferson, a bystander, was also grazed by a bullet during the incident and remains in pain. “My wife got shot in the head,” said Janet Medley. “The bullets were just flying across my ear.”

Florida’s hate crime law covers crimes motivated by sexual orientation.

Police are still searching for the shooters. Anyone with info about their identities is encouraged to contact Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers.

Connor Jessup - I'M GAY!

“I knew I was gay when I was thirteen, but I hid it for years. I folded it and slipped it under the rest of my emotional clutter. Not worth the hassle. No one will care anyway. If I can just keep making it smaller, smaller, smaller…. My shame took the form of a shrug, but it was shame. I’m a white, cis man from an upper-middle class liberal family. Acceptance was never a question. But still, suspended in all this privilege, I balked. It took me years. It’s ongoing. I’m saying this now because I have conspicuously not said it before.”

“I’ve been out for years in my private life, but never quite publicly,” Jessup added. “I’ve played that tedious game. Most painfully, I’ve talked about the gay characters I’ve played from a neutral, almost anthropological distance, as if they were separate from me. These evasions are bizarre and embarrassing to me now, but at the time they were natural. Discretion was default, and it seemed benign. It would be presumptuous to assume anyone would care, yeah? And anyway, why should I have to say anything? What right do strangers have to the intimate details of my life? These and other background whispers––new, softer forms of the same voices from when I was thirteen, fourteen, fifteen…. Shame can come heavy and loud, but it can come quiet too; it can take cover behind comfort and convenience. But it’s always violent. For me, this discretion has become airless. I don’t want to censor––consciously or not––the ways I talk, sit, laugh, or dress, the stories I tell, the jokes I make, my points of reference and connection. I don’t want to be complicit, even peripherally, in the idea that being gay is a problem to be solved or hushed.”

“I’m grateful to be gay, Queerness is a solution. It’s a promise against cliche and solipsism and blandness; it’s a tilted head and an open window. I value more everyday the people, movies, books, and music that open me to it. If you’re gay, bi, trans, two-spirit or questioning, if you’re confused, if you’re in pain or you feel you’re alone, if you aren’t or you don’t: You make the world more surprising and bearable. To all the queers, deviants, misfits, and lovers in my life: I love you. I love you. Happy Pride!”

Grrrrrr-BEARS-Grrrrrr--Two, 2, Too!

THIS WAS A VERY POPULAR THREAD! And, so we shall continue....

In male gay culture, a bear is often a larger, hairier man who projects an image of rugged masculinity. Bears are one of many LGBT communities with events, codes, and a culture-specific identity. However, in San Francisco in the 1970s any hairy man of whatever shape was referred to as a 'bear' until the term was appropriated by larger men and other words had to be found to describe hairy other-shaped men such as otter (slim) or wolf (medium-build).

Jack Fritscher notes that bears celebrate "secondary sexual characteristics of the male: facial hair, body hair, proportional size, baldness". Over the years, bear culture has subdivided itself. Many claim discrimination has increased within the bear community, as some men who self-identify as "bears" or "musclebears" do not welcome higher-bodyfat men (see chub) at their events. A common criticism of the bear community is that some self-described bears tend to exclude men who do not fit their standards of a "real bear". Fat (or lack of it) is seen by some as a political issue, some of whom see their overweight condition as a form of self-acceptance. Some also note a lack of racial diversity in the bear community, perceiving hirsuteness to be a standard of physical attractiveness that genetically favors white men aesthetically, socially and sexually among bears.

Drew Carey's ex Fiancee Murdered.

Drew Carey's ex-fiancee, Dr. Amie Harwick, has been murdered after cops say an ex-boyfriend attacked her and caused her to fall from a third-story balcony.

Law enforcement sources say they got a call early Saturday morning of a woman screaming in a Hollywood Hills neighborhood. Cops were met in the street by Harwick's roommate, who said she was being assaulted inside her home.

We're told once officers attempted to get inside Harwick's home, they found her unresponsive underneath a third-story balcony, with injuries consistent with a fall. Harwick was taken to a hospital where she later died from her injuries.

Cops say evidence suggested there was forced entry and a struggle inside Harwick's home before she was discovered. Investigators located surveillance footage in the neighborhood and determined the suspect was a white male dressed in black.

Detectives learned Harwick had recently expressed concerns about an ex-boyfriend -- who she once had a restraining order against -- causing her harm. Cops say the restraining order ended just two weeks ago and Harwick had recently seen the ex.

Cops arrested the ex, Gareth Pursehouse, Saturday afternoon and booked him for murder.

Drew and Harwick started dating in 2017 and announced their engagement in early 2018. However, they split less than a year later.

Al Pacino & Meital Dohan Split, She Explains the Reasons Why They Broke Up

sraeli actress Meital Dohan has confirmed she and Al Pacino have broken up after being linked for about two years.

“It’s hard to be with a man so old, even Al Pacino,” the 40-year-old actress said of her 79-year-old ex (via Times of Israel). “The age gap is difficult, yes. I tried to deny it, but now he is already an elderly man, to be honest. So even with all my love, it didn’t last.”

In addition, she said that Al "didn't like to spend money."

“He only bought me flowers,” she added. “How can I say politely that he didn’t like to spend money?”

“I had a fight with him and left him recently, but of course I really love and appreciate him, and I was glad to be there for him when he needed me, and to be a part of his legacy,” she continued. “It’s an honor for me. I’m glad this relationship happened between us, and hope we remain good friends.”

Has anyone else been through detox? I detoxed in a hospital setting, there's no rehab or outpatient planning and I don't have family. I know I need to find support somewhere but I'm not sure where to start. I tried AA a few times years ago and thought it was too much like a cult; it did nothing for me, I continued to drink.

Tommy Martinez talks about his bisexual character Gael on Good Trouble and his experience with a Dude

“I had an experience with a man maybe 10 years ago, and this is the first time that I’m saying that publicly,” an emotional Martinez shared as Bredeweg placed his hand on the actor’s back in support. “And throughout that whole time, I felt like I was put into the shadows, because the way that my community was, the way that they spoke about [LGBTQ people], [the] Hispanic community, it’s not only just them, but they are very religious and strict on what they believe it, but same with many other people in the world and here in America.”

“The way that they talked about homosexuality or even just experiencing something like that with slurs or what have you, my friend said the same thing, so I had nobody to talk to about [my own experience],” Martinez continued. “And I kept that inside the whole time until now. And to have this opportunity to portray this character and this community, I felt, especially in front of you wonderful people, I felt maybe this is the best place to express that. And so I saw myself completely in Gael’s shoes. And so when I got that audition notice and dove deeper into the character, I just felt right with it.”

Michael Bloomberg Surges in Poll and Qualifies for Democratic Debate in Las Vegas

After garnering 19 percent support in a national poll, the billionaire will be on the debate stage, where he is certain to be a target of onstage criticism.

WASHINGTON — Former Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg of New York has qualified for Wednesday’s debate in Las Vegas, the first time the billionaire will appear onstage alongside his Democratic presidential rivals.

A national poll from NPR, PBS NewsHour and Marist released on Tuesday showed Mr. Bloomberg with 19 percent support among Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents, putting him in second place behind Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, who had 31 percent. That was a substantial surge since the group’s poll in December, when Mr. Bloomberg received only 4 percent support.

The survey was the fourth national qualifying poll since mid-January that showed Mr. Bloomberg with at least 10 percent support, enough to earn him an invitation to the debate stage before the deadline of 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday.

Mr. Bloomberg will face off against Mr. Sanders; Senators Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota; former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.; and Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Ind.

The debate, which will air on Wednesday at 9 p.m. Eastern time, will be hosted by NBC News, MSNBC, Telemundo and The Nevada Independent.

Mr. Bloomberg’s 19 percent mark was his highest level of support in any debate-qualifying national poll to date. The latest national polling average calculated by The New York Times, which was released late last week, put him at 10 percent nationally, behind Mr. Sanders, Mr. Biden and Ms. Warren.

Mr. Sanders’s support has also increased since the NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll in December, when he had 22 percent. The new poll is the first debate-qualifying national poll released this year showing Mr. Sanders with more than 30 percent support.

In the new poll, Mr. Biden had 15 percent, Ms. Warren 12 percent, Ms. Klobuchar 9 percent and Mr. Buttigieg 8 percent. The poll surveyed 527 Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents by phone Feb. 13-16 and had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus five percentage points.

Mr. Bloomberg formally entered the race in November, nearly a year after most of the other candidates. He failed to make the cut for the past several debates in part because he is not accepting outside contributions for his campaign. But new rules announced by the Democratic National Committee opened the door to his participation, as they enabled candidates to qualify for the Las Vegas debate, as well as the one that will take place on Feb. 25 in Charleston, S.C., without meeting a donor threshold.

Mr. Bloomberg’s campaign manager, Kevin Sheekey, confirmed in a statement on Tuesday that Mr. Bloomberg would take part in the next debate.

“Mike is looking forward to joining the other Democratic candidates onstage and making the case for why he’s the best candidate to defeat Donald Trump and unite the country,” Mr. Sheekey said. “The opportunity to discuss his workable and achievable plans for the challenges facing this country is an important part of the campaign process.”

Also on Tuesday, Monmouth University released a poll of Virginia voters showing Mr. Bloomberg and Mr. Sanders tied at 22 percent each and leading the field. With 99 delegates at stake, Virginia is the fourth-largest prize on the Super Tuesday calendar, and Monmouth’s is the first poll to have been taken there since the summer. It is one of the first polls of any state in which Mr. Bloomberg has broken 20 percent, reflecting the intense focus that he has put on the states that vote March 3. (The Virginia poll has no effect on qualifications for this week’s debate.)

Philip Seymour Hoffman: Weird and Weirdly Forgotten

An actor's actor, much esteemed by his peers, often the best part of the surprisingly large number of movies he made. Largely forgotten by the public just 5 years after his untimely death at 46.

A weird guy: private, reclusive, troubled personal history, periodic substance abuse resulting in the end of his life.

Gay? Bisexual? Murdered? (Some suggest he was targeted by the COS after "The Master." Or by former drug dealers.)

Economic Implications re Most of China Under Quarantine

Bejing is the latest and most serious of the closures in China. If it's not 100% restricted then it will be very soon.

About 80% of antibiotics used in the US are made in China. Stock up if you require them.

Doctors are attempting to use popular HIV treatment drugs in an attempt to treat seriously ill patients as they're at a loss of what to do. May cause a drain on the availability of such drugs.

Rumors are that so far only Asians with Type B blood are dying but this hasn't been confirmed. Some suspect it's a targeted bio-weapon. Others hypothesize that Caucasians from Europe have inherited survival genes due to surviving the Black Plague and Spanish Flu. Again this is speculation only until the incubation period of 14 days on the average and up to a possibility of 28-days has played out in cases beyond China.

Face masks across the US and in Australia in local chain stores and on Amazon and on Ebay are in short supply or/and have doubled in cost this week. They aren't very effective against this bio-weapon unless they are the type created for bio-hazards.

Transmission has been proven to be from infected patient to doctors through the eyes so industrial strength eye goggles would be needed as well as a full facial mask.

Paul Krugman: Have Zombies Eaten Bloomberg’s and Buttigieg’s Brains?

In the modern United States, most important zombie ideas are on the right, kept undead by big money from billionaires who have a financial interest in getting people to believe things that aren’t true.

But sometimes zombie ideas also manage to eat centrists’ brains. Sure enough, some of the most destructive zombies of the past dozen years have shambled their way into the Democratic primary fight, where a couple of centrists are repeating ideas that were thoroughly debunked years ago.

Elizabeth Warren argues that Bloomberg’s embrace of a false right-wing narrative about the financial crisis should disqualify him for the Democratic nomination. But I’d be willing to cut him some slack if he’d admit that he was taken in by right-wing disinformation. If he isn’t willing to make that admission, she’s right.

At the same time that Bloomberg is being called out on his housing bubble zombie, Pete Buttigieg is facing justified criticism for buying into another zombie idea — the obsession with government debt. That obsession did much to hobble recovery from the financial crisis.

To be fair, deficit panic wasn’t as naked a scam as the claim that do-gooders caused the financial crisis, although some of the loudest voices decrying the evils of deficits were obvious phonies. What happened instead was that many important people imagined that inveighing against the dangers of debt made them sound serious, because that’s what all the other serious people were doing.

At this point, however, the debt obsession has been thoroughly debunked by both economic research and experience. We live in a world awash in private savings looking for someplace to go, with investors willing to lend money to governments at incredibly low interest rates. It’s actually irresponsible not to put this money to work investing in the future, both by building physical infrastructure and through programs that help children develop their potential.

Now, the Trump administration is doing it wrong — borrowing large sums, but squandering the money on tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy. But even bad deficit spending boosts the economy to some extent, and it is the reason America is still growing reasonably fast while Europe, still in the grip of austerity ideology, is stagnating.

Look: It’s easy to make the political case that Democrats should nominate a centrist, rather than someone from the party’s left wing. Candidates who are perceived as ideologically extreme usually pay an electoral penalty; this is especially true if, like Bernie Sanders, they actually pose as more radical than they really are.

But a key part of centrism’s appeal is the belief that centrists are realists, who understand how the world works. It’s much harder to make the case for centrists who repeat manifestly false claims, especially if those claims were essentially right-wing propaganda.

As I said, you can make a good case for the proposition that Democrats should, in the end, nominate a centrist. But a centrist whose brain has been eaten by zombie ideas? Not so much.

Camille Paglia Discusses "Trans Mania"

"Paglia: ‘Transgender Mania’ is a Symptom of West's Cultural Collapse"

Best-selling feminist author, social critic and self-described "transgender being" Camille Paglia said in an interview last month that the rise of transgenderism in the West is a symptom of decadence and cultural collapse.

“Nothing... better defines the decadence of the West to the jihadists than our toleration of open homosexuality and this transgender mania now,” Paglia said during an October 22 interview on the Brazilian television program Roda Viva.

Paglia also said during the interview that “transgender propagandists” are overstating their case.

“I think that the transgender propagandists make wildly inflated claims about the multiplicity of gender,” she said.

“Sex reassignment surgery, even today with all of its advances, cannot in fact change anyone’s sex, okay. You can define yourself as a trans man, or a trans woman, as one of these new gradations along the scale. But ultimately, every single cell in the human body, the DNA in that cell, remains coded for your biological birth.

“So there are a lot of lies being propagated at the present moment, which I think is not in anyone’s best interest.

"Now what I’m concerned about is the popularity and the availability of sex reassignment surgery, so that someone who doesn’t feel that he or she belongs to the biological birth, gender. People are being encouraged to intervene in the process.

"Parents are now encouraged to subject the child to procedures that I think are a form of child abuse. The hormones to slow puberty, actual surgical manipulations, etcetera. I think that this is wrong, that people should wait until they are of an informed age of consent.

“Parents should not be doing this to their children and I think that even in the teenage years is too soon to be making this leap. People change, people grow, and people adapt."

Paglia went on to talk about her book Sexual Personae and how the emergence of transgenderism signifies the end of Western culture. “Now I am concerned about this… In fact, my study of history in Sexual Personae, I’m always talking about the late phases of culture.

“I was always drawn to late or decadent phases of culture. Oscar Wilde is one of the great exponents of that in the late 19th century. He’s one of my strongest influences from my earliest years.

[quote] "And I found in my study that history is cyclic, and everywhere in the world you find this pattern in ancient times: that as a culture begins to decline, you have an efflorescence of transgender phenomena.That is a symptom of cultural collapse.

"So rather than people singing the praises of humanitarian liberalism that allows all of these transgender possibilities to appear and to be encouraged, I would be concerned about how Western culture is defining itself to the world.

"Because in fact these phenomena are inflaming the irrational, indeed borderline psychotic opponents of Western culture in the form of ISIS and other jihadists, etcetera," Paglia said.

"Nothing... better defines the deadence of the West to the jihadists than our toleration of open homosexuality and this transgender mania now."

Brad Pitt and the Beauty Trap

Male stars face a double standard, too, and ever since he bared his chest in “Thelma & Louise,” his work has been undervalued. But look closer and he explores masculinity in complex ways.

OMG and gurl, puh - LAIZE! - Germaine Greer has spoken!

[bold]"Germaine Greer questions whether Meghan Markle is 'faking' her love for Prince Harry and says their showbiz wedding was 'not real' [/bold]

[bold]'All I can think is she'd better be in love. If she's been faking it all this time, oh boy, what misery,' she said, speaking to Australia's 60 Minutes. 'How many orgasms will it take? How many fake groans will get her through this?'[/bold]

[quote]'The marriage was terrible too, because it was full of showbiz personalities, as if Meghan lived in a completely artificial world,' she explained. 'The whole point about showbiz - it's not real, and it won't sustain you.'

[quote]Community advocates declared victory on Thursday after a New York State judge ordered real estate developers to remove about 20 floors from a planned 55-story luxury residential skyscraper on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.

I wonder if those horrors on 57th could also get her attention.

Native American tribe says Pentagon failed to consult on border wall construction

The Tohono O'odham Nation in Arizona is asking for "government-to-government" consultation after barrier construction has disrupted sacred sites.

The Tohono O'odham Nation, a Native American tribe in southern Arizona opposed to building a border wall that could imperil wildlife and artifacts in the area's fragile landscape, is accusing the Defense Department of failing to consult with it in line with federal requirements.

A photographer's request...

A photographer well-known in the metro area came into my gym today to ask me to pose nude for him. Immediately, I thought he was one of those guys who pay to enjoy a private show from bodybuilders. I've asked questions to some other bodybuilders I have competed with. It's on the up and up, it turns out. I'm shocked he sought me out. Surprising even myself, I am considering it.

He wants me to keep all of my body hair, which I do anyway. He didn't ask to see my naked body right away, which he could have in the locker room. He'll supply all of the clothes (which I assume I'll be removing.) I can sign a release preventing him from using the photos without my permission.

Would you do it? Have you done it? What were the repercussions if you did?

NASTY PIG -- 25 Years Strong!

Wow! How quickly the time passes by! Who would of thought that a company called NASTY PIG could survive?

One of the now VERY FEW GAY OWNED AND OPERATED businesses that is left with us has turned 25 years old! We should celebrate it AND support it too!

This company turned models into whores and whores into models! While the rest of retail is suffering throughout the world, and our once, many gay businesses are either defunct or faltering, this GAY OWNED AND OPERATED business is still flourishing.

Tell us about your Nasty Pig stories and experiences. What do you think of its line/clothing. Are there people you might know who have worked for the Company or benefited from it, etc.

Let's cheer for a GAY OWNED AND OPERATED business since they are becoming fewer and fewer....

The Son of Gossip No One In Hollywood Will Say Out Loud: As The Tea Spills

[quote]Gossip is gossip. Facts are facts. Only idiots, PR shills, or fantards demand actual proof for gossip as a means to discredit and invalidate the gossip itself (because there is no legitimate proof yet for said gossip to turn into a fact).

Porn Pet Peeves

I enjoy porn as much as the next person, but there are certain things that either make me cringe, laugh out loud or simply want to turn off whatever I'm watching.

Tell us all one thing that is a real turn off when watching porn. I'll start: bad skin. I hate to see someone's back full of acne or close up of their pubic regions with razor bumps or welts. Such a turn off.

Now your turn!

PJ and Thomas - gay couple

Thoughts on gay couple YouTubers PJ and Thomas? They seem sweet and genuine. They’ve been married for years now and have foster kids. I’ve seen others on here disparage them because they live in a fly over state and live a quaint monogamous life, but ya’ll are just as irrelevant in your gay ghetto sad and single. I’m happy for them and they’re both good looking 😇😍
