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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Gay Ads That Matter - Issue No. 006 - Come As You Are

I honestly didn't realize it had been over 2 months since I posted an issue of "Gay Ads That Matter," until today, when I came across an ad that was released by McDonald's back in 2010.  There was a lot of controversy over this ad, primarily from Republicans, and the conservative right.  Fox News' O'Reilly went all psychotic on it.

I remember posting this ad on Facebook about a year ago, and it's titled "Come As You Are."  The reason why it matters, is because it features a young guy, either in high school or college, eating in a McDonald's restaurant with his dad, who doesn't know that his son is gay.  While the video doesn't say he's gay per se, it does imply it by having the boy talking to a classmate while looking at a class photo of  an all boys school. At the end of the commercial, it confirms it by saying, "Come As You Are."

The brand director of McDonald's in France had this to say...
"We wanted to take a look at how French society is today. We're very comfortable with the topic of homosexuality, there is obviously no problem with homosexuality in France today". While the statement sounds a bit naive in a country where same sex couples cannot legally marry nor adopt, the idea was to give a positive image of the brand: "The point was not to show someone who is troubled, especially a teenager. We know it can be difficult for some people, but we wouldn't have dared show someone who is struggling".
I commend McDonald's for doing this commercial; I only wish they would have made an American version.  Until then, we'll only get the ones that will make fun of who we are.  Especially around Super Bowl time.

Isn't This The Truth? Mail, Email, Mail

Remember the time when we used to get mail?  Yeah, the kind that looked like some type of rectangular-shaped paper object with a sticker on it?  Yes, we'd get all excited about that. 

Isn't This The Truth?
Then came the email revolution and it pretty much wiped out the U.S. Postal service.  No, really, it has.... they are thinking of closing over 3,600 post offices across the country, in the next year or so.

In either case, it's now gotten to the point where we get so much email that it goes unread for days at a time. Whenever I take off from work, I have returned to find a gazillion emails in my inbox - it's frustrating.  I get so tired of email that when I get home, I look forward to finding some type of "real" mail in my mailbox.  Those were the days. LOL.

Foods That Will Make You Fat - Issue No. 16

Go ahead, as yourself, "Why the hell am I fat?"  Oh.... because you just finished eating a MoFo "Meat Ship!"  As if any of my previous issues of "Foods That Will Make You Fat" are any different.  Once again, here's the next issue of foods that will make you barf.  Seriously, I could title this series many different ways.
Okay, first things first, anyone who would buy this jar of crap is out of a job and hurting for some real hard-earned bacon (cash).  The economy must have hit them real hard, otherwise they'd be out buying some Grey Poupon.  Hell, I'd be buying me some dollar store mayonnaise before I touched a spoon of this shit. Make me barf now!

Chicago Deep Dish Pizza
Ahhh, the sound of a Dominoes Deep Dish pizza sounds real good right about now.  Scratch that!  After taking a look at this disgusting picture I don't think I ever want to see a pizza again!  OMG, they might as well have called this the heart-attack pizza.

Meat Ship
Anything that would have 20 sausages, 48 slices of bacon, 1.2 lbs of sausage meat, 1kg of pork mince, 10 franks, 1 lb. of pastry, 1 onion, 1 mushroom, 2 packets of chipolata sausages, various food colourings, and some sage has got to be out of their fucking mind!  Seriously, they outta lock you up and throw away the key.  A meat ship? Really? That is unbelievably disgusting!  If this doesn't put you on a diet, I don't know what will.
