“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F. Kennedy - - - - - - - - - - - - “Imagine finding someone you love more than anything in the world, who you would risk your life for but couldn’t marry. 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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Poster of the Week - Issue No. 11 - Dare To Slack

Continuing alphabetically, I bring you this week's poster, "Dare To Slack."

Christians Perform Live Crucifixions

I'm going to say, you're not a true Christian unless you can do what your fellow brethren in the Philippines do every Easter.  PERFORM LIVE CRUCIFIXIONS.

YES, you just read that. 

Every "Good Friday" Christians in the Philippines partake in annual ritual (that's what I will call it) where they re-enact the bloody crucifixion of Jesus Christ by beating, and nailing volunteers to an actual wooden cross.  Those who wish to portray the son of God, say its a blessing to take part in something so true to their hearts.  One American, who wanted to witness a "live" crucifixion went so far as to say, "from what I've seen so far it seems pretty exciting, pretty crazy, but totally a unique experience, something that I would never see in America."  No Fucking Shit!

Is Sodomy Illegal In Your State?

In Texas, Republicans are blocking a bill that would repeal the state’s unconstitutional ban on “homosexual conduct.” Eight years after Lawrence v. Texashere are the 14 states that still have anti-sodomy laws on the books.

Art In The Most Despicable Form

The Twins
I seriously wonder about certain people sometimes. What would compel an artist to exploit recent horrid events in order to create art?  This just baffles me, but Canadian photographer Jonathan Hobin did just that.  The worst part being - the use of children dressed up in garb, like the late Princess Diana in the car crash that killed her, the prisoners in Abu Ghraib, the 9/11 towers tragedy, the Jonestown massacre, and many more as you'll find here.   

Hobin makes the following statement in his portfolio:
The quizzical disposition of youth and the pervasive nature of the media are symbolically represented in my images through tableau-vivant re-enactments of the very current events that adults might wish to keep out of their child’s world. Just as children make a game of pretending to be adults as a way to prepare and ultimately take on these roles in later life, so too do they explore things that they hear or see, whether or not they completely understand the magnitude of the event or the implications of their play.
