And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. 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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Straight But Not Narrow

The really sexy Josh Hutcherson has come out in support of all the straights.  In a new campaign to support the Trevor Project, the Straight But Not Narrow campaign describes itself as the "go to" site for straight folks.  

This is a way of getting the message across that "it’s an unfortunate reality that most of the bullying and harassment that gay teens face comes from them."

Furthermore, the site continues to say, "Just be you, Cause that's good enough for us."
So, whether you like girls, you like guys, you like both, you like neither (well, that would kinda suck, but you get the idea)…. what difference does it really make? There’s a whole lot more to a person than who they date. And yeah, we’re all different. But we believe that it’s those differences that make us interesting. Why would we all want to be exactly the same? Where’s the excitement in that?

While I find the concept of this campaign really progressive, it's hard to believe in it, because of the condemnation we face everyday.  But then again, every little bit helps, and we thank Josh for his contribution.

A Small Tribute to Elizabeth Taylor that Includes Lucy

As everyone already knows, the beautiful Elizabeth Taylor passed away on Wednesday morning and was laid to rest Thursday afternoon.  She went out of this life in pretty much the same way she lived it, with Grace, Style and Tastefulness.

While most of us look to older people as our driving force to life, Elizabeth Taylor was one our parents constantly warned us about, especially if you lived in a Christian home; they didn't want us to look up to her.  She was married countless times, had several affairs, became a drinker, a smoker, a party girl, and her life was filled with drama.

But I look past all that, we are human, we all make many mistakes in our life, we learn from them and move on.  Who's to say she wasn't one with God and asked for forgiveness long ago?  We don't know, but He is the one who will decide her fate when the time comes.  Until then, we should all live our lives as we see fit, and if this includes God, or not, that is up to you.

In a tribute to the iconic legend, I came across a video this morning that brought me so much laughter, and thought I would share. The clip is from "Here's Lucy," and pretty much what happens... Lucy gets Liz's ring stuck on her finger.  Richard Burton tries to have it removed, and when he can't, he drags Lucy along with him.  He takes her to a reception that Liz has to show up to later that evening, and everyone is expecting to see the famous ring...

Entertainment Tonight's Captain America Promo

Sometimes, I think they should have re-thought their casting for Spiderman, Superman, and Batman, and cast Chris Evans as all three alter egos.  But of course that couldn't happen, because while Batman and Superman appeared in DC Comics, Spiderman and Captain America appeared in Marvel.

Ah fuck it! Who cares?  I just can't get over how hot Chris Evans looks in this Entertainment Tonight's promotional video showing the very, skinny version of him, which is obviously CGI, and the oh, so muscular version, which is ALL real!

Courtesy of Wikipedia:
 In 1942, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is deemed physically unfit to enlist in the U.S. Army and fight the Nazis in World War II. Volunteering instead for Project: Rebirth, a secret military operation, he is physically transformed into a super-soldier dubbed Captain America. With sidekick Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), he fights the Red Skull (Hugo Weaving), Hitler’s treacherous head of advanced weaponry, whose own plan for world domination involves a seemingly magical object known as the Tesseract.
