Wow, if this news is true that British diver Tom Daley is dating Oscar screenwriter Dustin Lance Black then that is creepy, sick, disgusting, and disturbing.
Dustin Lance Black is thirty nine years old, what could he possibly have in common with a nineteen year old kid other than sex? What could they possibly talk about?
Also, it is important to note, Daley’s father died a few years ago and wants a father figure?
Daley is vulnerable and that’s what chicken hawks want, they want young guys who they can manipulate and exploit.
But getting involved with a chicken hawk isn’t the way to go about it.
Dustin Lance Black also has been involved in less than stellar activity such as having a sex tape which is floating somewhere on the internet.
If the rumours are true, then this is bad news for the gay community. There is already a negative perception, of older gay men chasing after young boys. The stereotype is, gay men are predators who take advantage of youth.
One issue the gay male community is reticent to discuss is older gay men preying on young boys.
Since Tom Daley recently came out of the closet and he’s a star in the United Kingdom this will be a big story. The press are going to have a field day with this news.
Daley is a role model to queer youth, and he was courageous coming out of the closet a few days ago.
However, I think this is very sad news to be honest if he is indeed dating this older man. Tom Daley can date any man he desires yet he hooks up with a chicken hawk?
Yes, Daley is an adult and he is nineteen and legal. However, there is a term in gay male culture called twinks. A twink is a young gay male between the ages of eighteen to probably twenty four. Older gay men love twinks because they lack life experience, are vulnerable, and can be easily taken advantage of.
The older gay man loves twinks because they are young and can be used for sex.
Usually, when a twink ends up with an older gay man there is no happy ending. The older gay men gets rid of the young man and replaces him with someone else.
Although the James Franco & Seth Rogen parody of Kanye West new video is considered funny is it really? The immediate reaction people have is Franco & Rogen are just being funny making fun of rapper Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s arrogance.
Franco and Rogen are homophobes, except they utilize humour as a mask to conceal their anti gay prejudice.
Franco has used male homosexuality as a gimmick to get free publicity, yet he clearly has no respect for gay men!
The subliminal message is still homophobia against male homosexuality is palatable if the homophobes are young white heterosexual male actors. We live in a racist, homophobic world where the obnoxious behaviour of white heterosexual men is giving a free pass. Imagine, if two young black male actors made this parody video? Would the mainstream media and public be so accepting of it or would they scorn them?
Some people might argue, that it is simply a joke not be taken seriously. However, humour has a subtext, a message that is beneath the surface. The homophobia Franco and Rogen are engendering is that male homosexuality is wrong.
The anti gay message Franco and Rogen are spreading must be challenged and not dismissed as just comedy.
The general public is laughing at the fact two famous young male actors are kissing and being affectionate with each other. People are not just laughing at Kanye West, they also have a platform to being homophobic because Franco and Rogen provided the space for this to occur. Male homosexuality is ridiculed, gay men being affectionate with each other is seen as a joke. Since Franco and Rogen are both white, heterosexual men, they utilize their white male privilege to humiliate gay men.
Once again, two men kissing is considered funny and disgusting at the same time. Although, James Franco claims to be an ally of the gay community he has a propensity to be an opportunist. Franco is no friend of the gay male community, he utilizes male homosexuality to shock his heterosexual audience. James Franco is a bigot, but his bigotry is covert not overt. Franco’s art about gay male sexuality which he manipulates for his personal game is an example of his prejudice.
Since Franco is heterosexual, some gay men fall for Franco’s prejudice they give him a free pass for mocking male homosexuality.
Franco has white male skin privilege and since he is handsome, gay men ignore his anti gay prejudice. However, just because Franco is a good looking man, does this give him a pass for being a jerk?
Franco isn’t as gay positive as some gay men assume. For instance, Franco’s short film Interior Leather Bar, was created to alarm heterosexual audiences since he was recreating portions of the 1980 cult gay classic Cruising. Of course, Franco was not involved in any of the gay male sex scenes.
Franco’s so called art is meant to shock, he feels comfortable exploiting male homosexuality for his own personal fame. However, Franco won’t get too close to male homosexuality and he is quick to point out he isn’t gay. Franco’s coy attitude about his sexuality is lame and pathetic. Franco needs a new gimmick and move on from male homosexuality he is a coward.
Only a coward would claim to be an ally of the gay male community yet consistently use homosexuality to alarm the general public. There is no substance behind Franco’s art, it lacks true meaning.
Male homosexuality is just a prop for Franco, a joke, not to be taken seriously. In addition, since Franco has never clarified his true sexuality, he is assumed to be heterosexual. Franco utilizes his heterosexual male privilege to mock, humiliate, and discriminate against gay men.James Franco is the enemy of gay men he is not an ally.
Gay singer Steve Grand’s second music video Stay was released today on You Tube! I love this song, it is very different from Grand’s first viral hit All American Boy which was a sad depressing song. Stay is more upbeat, hopeful, and it shows Steve in love with another man, but this time he gets the gay guy! I think Steve Grand is so refreshing, it is so nice to see a young gay male singer, be unapologetic about being GAY.
Of course, a major reason Steve Grand is receiving a lot of media attention and also the public’s attention is due to the fact he’s a handsome young man. However, so what? Steve Grand is hot, and it certainly doesn’t hurt to be attractive especially since he’s a singer.
Some gay men are critical of Steve Grand because they feel the gay male community is a bit superficial and people are obsessed about Grand’s good looks.
I agree that Steve Grand receives a lot of attention because he’s HOT. However, I also believe there is a yearning from a lot of gay men, to finally see gay love in a visual form and in music. I believe, a lot of gay men like Steve Grand because it is great to see a gay man sing about being in love with another man.
There is still a lot of homophobia in society, and in the entertainment industry although barriers are breaking down there is still a lot of blatant discrimination.
It is great that Mackelmore and Ryan Lewis can make Same Love a huge international hit. Meanwhile, for me personally, it is great seeing Steve Grand an actual gay man be confident and be proud about his homosexuality. It just means something more to me, as a gay man to see another gay man, in pop culture be a successful entertainer.
Having straight allies such as Mackelmore and Ryan Lewis is good, but it is even better for the gay community when gay men actually stand up and be proud. The confidence that Steve Grand demonstrates with his music is very empowering to the gay community.
Steve Grand is a proud gay man and that’s very refreshing to see, he isn’t hiding his love for other men in his music videos.
If you notice, a lot of gay male entertainers such as Adam Lambert, Frank Ocean, or Ricky Martin, they only came out of the closet after they had a certain level of success. Also, unlike Ricky Martin, Adam Lambert, or Frank Ocean, Steve Grand came out as a gay man from the VERY BEGINNING! It is nice that there are a few queer male entertainers in the music industry, but there is still a problem.
The openly gay male singers on the major music labels, they seem to have a marketing strategy of not appearing “too gay”.
It isn’t very powerful, when Frank Ocean sings about loving a man yet he can’t make a music video about loving another man.
The visual aspect of music videos are very important, because I believe it is imperative for gay male entertainers to claim their space.
The mainstream record companies seem more concerned about record sales, and also appealing to heterosexual women. Even though Frank Ocean, Ricky Martin, and Adam Lambert are out of the closet, they clearly are being marketed to women not gay men.
The gay male market is virtually ignored, by the mainstream record companies.
Also, I have noticed the other openly gay male singers, their music videos are not very gay nor do their videos deal with gay male romance. Even though Ricky Martin is out as a gay man, a lot of his music videos still involves him singing to a woman.
Steve Grand is a breath of fresh air, I can’t wait until Steve releases his first album.
Wow, this is so nice to see WWE star Darren Young casually come out of the closet. Young was so nonchalant, when he came out to the TMZ reporter. This is fantastic, Darren coming out is going to make a difference I feel. It is so nice to see a handsome, masculine gay black man come out of the closet. I also think Darren Young coming out is great for the black community, there needs to be more dialogue about homosexuality.
For far too long gay black men we are silenced due to the homophobia. However, when public figures such as Darren Young continue to come out, these men challenge the perceptions of what it means to be gay. Often the image of the gay black man in pop culture is negative, about the dangerous down low brother or the effeminate drag queen. No offense to the fans of Ru Paul, and Miss Jay Alexander but it is refreshing to see a confident, masculine, gay black man come out. Masculine gay black men really shock people because these men challenge the image of the black homosexual.
Homophobic people prefer the flamboyant gay black man image because he fits into the neat stereotype and category of the perception people have of gay men. Meanwhile, the masculine gay black man shatters the negativity, and the image of the black homosexual. We need more public figures who are gay black men to come out like Darren Young!
He sounds very confident, gay, and proud and I think that’s the right way to come out. Young didn’t do no press conference, or no big magazine article he just stated very matter of fact he’s into other men. Everyone knows, the WWE is a very macho, testosterone environment.
I knew Canadian tennis star Milos Raonic didn’t have a chance to beat Rafael Nadal today but I thought he could have made it close. However, immediately Raonic was serving at 1-1 and Nadal breaks his serve and the match is over. Nadal destroyed Raonic 6-2 6-2 in a little bit over an hour. First, congratulations to Milos Raonic for becoming the first Canadian man to reach the top 10. On Monday, Raonic will be ranked tenth in the world and that’s an awesome achievement for a young player. However, Nadal illustrated today that there is a huge gap between the elite players in the top five and the rest of the top 10 or top 2o players. Raonic is in the second tier group, his game is good enough to beat most of the men on the ATP Tour but not good enough against Nadal.
The reason Nadal has dominated Raonic 4-0 in their head to head meetings is due to a few things. Raonic is slow, yes he is six foot five but his movement is awkward his footwork is terrible!
Tomas Berdych the sixth ranked player in the world is the same height as Raonic but his movement is superior. Nadal simply redirects the ball, he pushes Milos Raonic around the court. Unfortunately, for Raonic his lack of mobility is exploited by Nadal. I suggest Raonic hire a sprint coach, I am not suggesting Raonic is going to become a track and field star like Usain Bolt.
However, I feel that in order for Raonic to challenge the top five players he must improve his movement. If Raonic can improve his fitness, meaning getting physically stronger he will have more confidence on the court. Raonic is slim but he’s going to have to work even harder in the gym if he seriously wants to challenge the top four players. Right now, Raonic is not fast enough and his groundstrokes are not consistent enough. Raonic made too many silly errors today against Nadal.
Second, Raonic’s backhand is weak he runs around his poor backhand to hit forehands. Raonic needs to improve his backhand and turn it from a weakness into a weapon. The problem is Nadal is so much quicker than Raonic he exploits Raonic’s backhand and forces him into errors. Finally, I think Raonic needs to realize having a big serve is not enough to beat the top players. Raonic needs to dedicate himself to adding more variety into his game he is sadly very one dimensional. I don’t want Milos Raonic to end up like Andy Roddick he didn’t have variety in his game and he became Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer’s punching bag. The good news is Raonic is young he’s only twenty two. However, in the fall when Raonic has time, I sincerely hope that he really dedicates himself to improving his movement. If Milos Raonic can improve his movement, maybe he has a chance against the top four players.
I miss the L Word, it was a groundbreaking show about lesbians falling in love in Los Angeles.
I love the L Word it is a superior show than Queer As Folk. I felt the L Word was more authentic to me, more real even though it was a television show. Queer As Folk, I didn’t like it due to the underlining issues of racism and the lack of minority characters on the show.
I thought the L Word was a sexy, hot show, and this clip is hot! I don’t understand the complaints about the actresses being feminine? Why can’t a television show have feminine lesbians? There was one butch character on the L Word Shane and she is a complex and interesting character.
In this clip, Jenny is drawn to Marina, but she is confused about her sexuality. Marina seduces Jenny in the bathroom kissing her passionately on the lips.
Later on in the first season, Jenny realizes she is a lesbian and she dumps her boyfriend. The L Word was on Showtime in the United States for six season and got cancelled in 2009. We really need a new television show about lesbians. Some people complained that the L Word wasn’t racially diverse enough, although there were some women of colour characters such as Papi, Tasha, and Carmen.
Other people said the L Word was stereotypical in the sense that the cast was glamorous. However, since when is television supposed to reflect real life? Don’t most people want to see attractive and beautiful people fall in love? I like the L Word despite the flaws because it was nice to see a show specifically about lesbians. Often, lesbians are invisible in the gay community, and the L Word provided a space specifically for women. I also learned some things about the lesbian community watching the show. I only own season 4 of the L Word on DVD but I plan to buy the box set of the series.
I don’t care for football but when I heard actress Kerry Washington married a hunk Nnamdi Asomugha I had to see for myself! Wow, thank goodness for You Tube this guy is so articulate, and so handsome!! Kerry really picked a good one!
I am glad Steve Grand addressed the media’s claim of calling him a Country Music singer. Steve Grand makes it clear in his video he does not see himself as a Country artist. Grand’s video All American Boy has a Country twang to it, but I don’t think it is Country Music. I hope Steve gets a record deal and his music career gets to take off! All American Boy is an amazing song, because Steve was so bold and unapologetic writing a song and making a video about loving another man. Adam Lambert, Frank Ocean, Ricky Martin are out of the closet but their music ignores their homosexuality. All American Boy has connected with so many gay men and also heterosexuals because love is universal.
Blind Gossip Reports Dead Drug Addict Cory Monteith Addicted To Cocaine, Heroin, & Anti Depressants Such as Xanax.
[Blind Gossip] This is a BlindGossip.com exclusive story.
The press is reporting that this actor was “happy and healthy” over the past few weeks.
Not true. He may have looked “happy and healthy”, but he was using again. In fact, when the aut*psy report comes back, it will show that he was using a combination of alcohol, hard drugs, and prescription drugs.
They found c*caine and pills (that were not prescribed to him) in his hotel room. Here is what they will find in his system: alcohol, c*caine, Vic*din (a hydroc*done/acetaminophen combination painkiller), Xanax (a benz*diazepine used to treat anxiety and insomnia), and Perc*cet (an oxyc*done/acetominipin combination).
There may have been other things. Those are the things we know he had taken in the day or so prior to his passing.
What a waste.
cory monteith 2SOLVED!
It’s Cory Monteith. Source: BlindGossip.com
We do know that they found c*caine, Vic*din, Xanax, and Perc*cet in his room, and that he had been drinking the night before. That is why reported that specific “cocktail” of dr*gs and alcohol yesterday.
When Cory fell off the wagon just a few weeks after leaving rehab, that list of dr*gs contains the ones that he had immediately started consuming again. He used to call Xanax “the blue chills”.
We do know that Cory had been a her*in user in the past, but we did not know that he has started using again. That is why the last line in our original blind was “There may have been other things.” While some people smoke her*in, when Cory used it in the past, he injected it.
The coroner’s office is officially attributing his death to a mix of her*in and alcohol. We don’t know if authorities will eventually disclose what other drugs were in his system (e.g. the c*caine and Xanax), or what was found in his room. If they do, you will find that our list was correct.
The bigger issue is this: Dr*gs kill people. Even young, talented people. It’s a tragedy no matter how you look at it.
