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 - - - - - - - - - - -

What has been known for over a year, or ever since Oprah announced she was leaving her show, is finally coming true this fall.  Anderson Cooper's new daytime talk show will premiere on September 12, a day after the 10 year anniversary of 9/11.   

The show will simply be titled, "ANDERSON."  You can click on the picture to check out his new official website.  I'm actually hoping his show does really well, and he's able to capture as many hearts in America as he can.

Anderson has never married, and has been rumored to be gay.  In fact, he's been spotted several times over the past several years with a guy pal, but he's never publicly disclosed his sexuality.  I respect that, he doesn't have to share it if he doesn't want to. I mean, don't get me wrong, If he were to garner the amount of popularity Oprah did during the 25 years on her show, and came out during one of his tapings.  This would be like the breaking news of the decade!  All the gays would be jumping for joy. LOL  But honestly, we need people like the "Silver Fox" to stand behind us, and fight the fight.

It's Purely Animal - Issue No. 17 - Baby Mudplay

It's Elephant play time again!  Earlier this year, you may remember  it was playtime in the kiddie pool at the Houston Zoo.  This time around a baby elephant is having too much fun playing in the mud.  Too cute!

Documentaries To Watch: Sons of Perdition

If you missed the premiere of "Sons of Perdition" on OWN last Thursday night, you missed a pretty interesting documentary.  I can't begin to think what it is like to be under the control of someone who proclaims to be a prophet.  I wish I would have read about this sooner, otherwise I would have recorded it, but I'm sure it will air again.  

"You have the prophet and he controls everybody" says one of the men who reside at Warren Jeff's polygamist compound in Colorado City, Arizona.  One of the boys even goes so far as to say, "Tell you the truth, I would have taken a bullet for Warren Jeffs, so I can go up to heaven and live for an eternity."  Another boy states that he has "2 moms, and 21 siblings," the unimaginable is heard from them in this short trailer.

For a review of the film by Hank Stuever of the Washington Post you can go here. You can catch the trailer below.
"three young men run away from the strict and abusive lifestyle in “the Crick” (the communal nickname for the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints compound) and quickly discover how ill-equipped they are to survive."

Office Warfare

Last week, in my "Keeping It Old Skool" series, I introduced you to an awesome Nerf battle between a few kids.  This time around an office war commences when an employee picks up a co-worker's Nerf gun from his prized collection. It was really fun to watch, check it out.

Warning: Gay Days at Disney!

Ahhh you gotta love America.  They spew hatred even across the skies... literally.

You've seen them everywhere.  Hell, I've had brushes with death trying to read the damn things while driving home from work sometimes.  I'm talking about advertisement banners pulled by airplanes in order to promote a company's product, or in this weekend's case, warning signs announcing there are huge orgies of hot gay men taking place at Disney.  

Florida Family Association hired planes to fly two separate banners, and reportedly paid $7,000 to do it.  The banners read "Warning Gay day at Disney 6/4" and "Warning Gay Pride Day at Disney 2 Day."

These are the same people that said, their emails to MTV to remove SKINS off the air "made a difference."  Really?  Really?  Lord these people are nuts. "thousands of people enter the park, then turn around and leave then they see the same-sex couples. Mainstream America is offended."  

Disney and event organizers disagreed with them.
