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 - - - - - - - - - - -

If You're Straight, Don't Be Narrow

It seems like just yesterday, when I blogged about the Straight But Not Narrow campaign.  At the time I felt a project like this could never help people understand.  But I've had a change of heart since then, and commend the gorgeous Avan Jogia for starting this up. Besides, it's about "dudes talking to dudes, about dudes who like dudes," right?

In March, it was the beautiful Josh Hutcherson who came out in support of SBNN, but this time around, it's our beloved Glee actor, Cory Montieth aka Finn.  If it's anyone who knows about the struggles we face everyday, it's him.  He plays the step-brother to an actor who's gay in real-life and on the show, Kurt Hummel.

As Cory, states in the video...
"Sooo, maybe you like to play football, maybe you like to sing and dance, maybe you like both, maybe you don't like either, it doesn't matter.

It doesn't matter. Just be yourself, just be you, because that's good enough for me. We're guys, talking to guys, about guys, who like guys."
We love you Cory, thanks for being straight, but not narrow-minded!

Forever Our Wonder Woman!

If there's one thing conservatives hate, it's celebrities who have supported us us through the years. But what they really, really despise, is when they are as iconic as Lynda Carter. You are Forever Our Wonder Woman!

The Six Degrees of Johnny Depp

So can you figure out all the iconic roles Johnny Depp has played over the years?  I bet you can't. :-)

Splitscreen: A Love Story

Unbelievably beautiful is all I can say about this video.  Actually, I can say many other great things, but at the moment I am drawn to the complexity of the art that fell upon me, that I can't think of what else to say.
This short film was shot entirely on a Nokia mobile phone.  It was so creative, writer and director, JW Griffiths became the winner at this year's Nokia Shorts Competition.

GRNDR Has You Beat

If you thought your city had the most GRNDR users, think again.  You know who I'm talking about.  I'm talking to all you horny boys out there who can't get enough man-meat out of their day, so they go to their cell phones to tap on their GRNDR application.

You heard me.  Better yet, you read that.

Back in the "olden" days (90's), we used to go out clubbing, go to a library to read a book, or simply just hang out with our friends at a park.  Within a matter of time you'd run into this really cute boy, and tried to find a way to go up to him. You'd talk, chat on AIM or Yahoo Instant Messenger, or maybe, just maybe, write him a letter.  Then you'd hook up with them.

Today, that is too much trouble, we don't have time for all that.  So what is gay boy to do?  Use their hook-up app to find a guy, and sometimes find them only a few feet away.  And being the horny dogs that gay boys are, they hook-up once, twice, or three times a day.  With the same person of course. *coughs*  Some of the guys are ridiculously hot though.

In either case, GRNDR has reached a milestone this week, it now has 2 million users in over 192 countries. Wait, do we have that many countries?  With the addition of the iPad, Android, and Blackberry, GRNDR has now become the top hook-up app in the world.

And you're not alone, because these cities down below are the top 10 cities in the world when it comes to GRNDR usage. Sorry Houston, you didn't make the list.  I'm sure being the good, Christian boys you all are, you refuse to take part in such blasphemous activity.  *coughs again*
