“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 - - - - - - - - - - -

OMG Hilarious! - Cyclops

Thank you, Johnny!

On May 5th, Johnny Weir (my gay icon) became royally pissed-off that the U.S. Olympic Committee chose to designate former gymnast, Peter Vidmar as our country's 'chef de mission' for the International Olympic Committee and Olympic Games in London - a bigot who protested publicly and donated money to Prop 8, which eventually overturned gay marriage in California.
“I certainly wouldn’t want to be represented by someone who is anti gay marriage. It isn’t just about marriage; it is being allowed equal rights as Americans. The fact this man who is very publicly against something that may be represented on the American team is disgraceful.”
And it looks like the queen has spoken - my gay idol came out fighting, and won!  He took home the Gold Medal! 
According to USA Today, Peter Vidmar has resigned amid his personal beliefs. 
“I wish that my personal religious beliefs would not have become a distraction from the amazing things that are happening in the Olympic movement in the United States. I simply cannot have my presence become a detriment to the U.S. Olympic family. I hope that by stepping aside, the athletes and their stories will rightly take center stage."
Good Riddance!

Let's Dance - Jennifer Lopez: On The Floor

Who's in the mood for a little upbeat music this morning?  How 'bout I play some Jennifer Lopez.  Let's Dance!   

On The Floor!

Dead or Alive?

Would it have been better to capture Osama bin Laden and try him for war crimes, or is he better off dead?  This is on the minds of majority of Americans.  

This article doesn't say it, but something tells me the right-wing nuts are only having a change of heart, because Obama is currently President.
