It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Facebook's Farmville, Café World, Mafia Wars - Are They To Blame For Their Deaths?

You know what I find quite interesting? I don't see many people on Farmville or the Mafia Wars games anymore.  Do you still have it coming up on your end?  Sorry, I don't mean to ridicule those who play these addictive games, but after reading the story I'm about to share with you, I could care even less about them.

Has anyone ever heard of Bejeweled?  Well, in one week, two mothers murdered their children over games like these.  On the first one, the mother let her 14 month old baby drown in the bathtub while she played Café World.  Her reason? The baby wanted alone time.  Stupid bitch, babies don't need alone time. In the second one, the mother hit her baby in the head with her computer, thus killing her 9-14 week old infant, all because she was crying. How 'bout somebody poke this bitch's eyes out for playing on the computer instead of holding her child?

While I know that most people wouldn't do stupid shit like that, it boggles my mind how parents could be so careless.  It's like leaving your child in the back seat of your car, in 200 degree weather, because you forgot to drop her off at school not realizing she was in the back seat.  And it's not so much that Facebook or these games are too blame, but people get so addicted to them, that they tend to overlook what they're doing. What are your thoughts on this crazy story?

I Love My Best Friend For All That He Is, I Wouldn't Change A Thing...

In the nearly six years Ryan and I have been together, not one day has gone by where I've never said, "I Love You."  And if we had a disagreement or a difference of a opinion, we got over it rather quickly.  Arguments and/or fights are too far in between that we simply forget about them.  We have better things to do with our lives than to sit around bickering all day.

Quite honestly, we became "Best Friends," because that's how every relationship should be.  I believe wholeheartedly that if you cannot become best friends with your partner, your relationship will never work.  Friends you've made over the years through childhood, high school and/or college that you consider best friends, are there for you, love you and will support you as much as humanly possible; But in the end, the one you gave your heart to, should be your truest friend.

When you fall in love, and your partner becomes your "Best Friend," he or she should mean more to you than all your other friends combined.  If you truly love this person, no one, and I mean no one, can tear that apart.  He or she, in essence has become the most important person in your life; Your confidant, your soul mate and your partner.

Simply put, when you get into an argument or a disagreement about something, don't go running to your friends about it.  Take a moment to cool down, run to the bathroom, beat the walls, wish him/her dead, but do not run and tell your "other friends."   You need to talk to the man or woman you love, they are your Best Friend.  If you cannot do this without telling other people the problems you have with your partner, then you don't belong with him or her, and quite frankly, were never their Best Friend to begin with. You shouldn't be.

Today around 2:00 in the afternoon, Ryan received some flowers in a basket, a cute monkey holding a candy bar, and a balloon that said, "I Love You." And on the card I wrote,
"It's not Valentine's Day, but I don't need a holiday to let you know how much I love you.  You're not only everything I dreamed you would be, you're the blessing God told me I would receive when I got older."
I meant every word I wrote, and to this day I love him more than I ever could.  Life would be incomplete without him.  Ryan is my Best Friend and he means more to me than you will ever know.

A Tea Partier's Dream - Tea For Glee!

Actually, it's for both: The Tea Partiers and the extreme right conservatives, but that's besides the point.  Marc Cherry, a known Gay Republican, is out and about promoting his next creation, Hallelujah.  He says the new show will be a cross between Dallas and Touched By An Angel.  Really, Marc? You're telling me you're going to have an ultra-conservative JR (Larry Hagman) and a supreme liberal Bobby (Patrick Duffy) battling it out for the preacher's wife?  Oh wait, that's already been written. 

The creator of Desperate Housewives, Golden Girls and countless other sitcoms, says "he dreamed up a mysterious stranger who brings hope and, perhaps, miracles to these small town citizens in ways they initially won't understand. But fans of Housewives' cheekiness won't be disappointed. He promises to deliver characters with "delicious, juicy, dark secrets" involved in battles between good and evil.  There will be a "generous helping of gospel music," Cherry told TVGuide.com.  "I'm calling it Glee for conservative Republicans."

Seriously... I don't know what's worse, this or the Tea Party magazine hitting news stands this weekend. (I'll blog about that absurdity later.)  I can't wait to see what the Tea Partiers say about this show, should it see the light of day.

7 Year Old Boy Donates $140 To Gay Charities

"To teach the importance of improving the world around him, Malcolm was given $140 to give away to the charity of his choice. After hearing a story on the radio about the mistreatment of gays and lesbians, Malcolm became both upset and curious about the issue…to help, he chose to split his money between the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center and the Human Rights Campaign Foundation."                                                        - Malcolm's Mom
The center is calling him their "Littlest Champion," and rightly so.  The young boy sent $140 to the charities of his choice, simply because he doesn't think it's fair that Gay people should be treated unequally.  It truly brings hope that someday there will be an end to all the bigotry, hatred and discrimination we face in the world today.  And even if you question whether he did this on his own or by his parents' sentiment, at least he's learning about Gay people at an early age.  Thank you, Malcolm - this has made my morning.

The Black Madonna

Hmmm, not sure how what to make of it.  I know it's Art, but is ironic that Madonna once considered naming one of her albums the "Black Madonna."

A loyal Madonna fan decided to imagine what the cover may have looked like.
