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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Keeping It Old Skool - Issue No. 10 - Trapper Keepers

Oh God, forgive me for writing this blog, but I have to reflect on yesteryear for the sake of this series.  I haven't written a Keeping It Old Skool issue since May, and now I know why. LOL.

I don't care what any of you say, Trapper Keepers were the shit!  They held all your crap together and it had pocket folders called Trappers!  

You could find a variety of cool designs that included football, muscle cars, horses, rainbows, and an array of bold colors.  It was the coolest 3-ring binder you would ever have.  The Trapper Keeper had a fold-over closure that was held shut by a strip of velcro, and the rings were made of plastic so that you wouldn't hurt yourself with those old metal ones.  It even had a tab you could pull out, so that the rings would slide open.  It was the greatest invention ever!

I know whoever is reading this is probably laughing their ass off, but you know you had one too!  Hell, you probably cut the damn plastic and slid in your best friends' pictures in there or those hot shirtless pics of Zack Morris and AC Slater from your Pop Star Magazines.

How my mother never figured out I was gay when I asked for the rainbow one is beyond me. 

And yes, just so you can get a kick out of it, here's a commercial for your nostalgia. :-)

OMG Hilarious! - This Is For You Grandma

One of the Cyanide and Happiness artists, Matt, had this to say about today's comic.
"Earlier this week, my grandmother passed away after a year and a half struggle with cancer.  She was a bubbly, sweet woman with and infectious laugh who I think would have wanted her memory honored doing what I do best:  making borderline-offensive jokes that she doesn't quite get, but she's proud of anyway.  I love you, Grandma."

I Am Obamacare!

Facebook friend Jason Johnson posted this image on his FB wall yesterday, and I had to share it. I don't think Republicans understand the importance of what they call "Obamacare". 

They think its all fun and games, but look at the document below you bumbling bozos, and call me a socialist - I don't care! You will be hurting a lot of people when you or the Supreme Court try to remove the new Healthcare law.

If The World Were A Village of 100 People: Issue No. 19 - Electricity

Woo hoo!  Only one poster left after this one. This is the 19th poster and 19th week out 20 that I've been posting them.

Every week I have been blogging about the posters designed by Toby Ng, where he took statistics based on the spread of the population in the world today and translated those statistics into a town of 100 people.  So you'd ask yourself, "What if the world were a village of 100 people?" And these posters would answer that question in a much more simpler way.

In my humble opinion I think these posters would be a great educational tool.  Great to share with your kids or a classroom.

The Joys of Being a Parent: Father vs. Daughter in a Battle of Wits

Ahhh, the joys of being a parent....  LOL. This is what I'm talking about.  This has to be the cutest video ever!  Well, at least "one of" the cutest videos ever.  There's too many that are just as great.  In either case, this is the way the father describes it on his You Tube page:
It's Maddie vs Daddy as I interrogate my baby daughter to reveal her favorite parent. What takes place is a ruthless contest of cunning and skill... with one of us clearly out of our league.

I'm Not A Glee Hater, But Kurt Has To Go!

I was just getting used to the fact that the graduating class of Glee was not returning for Season 4, and looking forward to not seeing Kurt any longer. And then BAM!  The Worstest News Ever!  Yes, I know there's no such thing as "worstest," before you go correcting me.

Ugh. at first I liked him, then I didn't like him, then I did. He just pisses me off sometimes, and I'm ready for some new folks.  I mean, don't get me wrong, please keep Blaine and Sebastian on the show, they're perfect in every way. LOL.

But really, why is Ryan Murphy keeping the graduating class on the show?  Will this be the hit show's downfall from grace?  I sure hope not, but it might as well be.  First it was reported that Lea Michele would be returning back as Rachel next year, and now the give us the news that several more characters would be returning, including Chris Colfer as Kurt Hummel.  Why, Dear God, why?

His character is annoying and he's not the representation of every gay boy in America.  But... I get it.  They throw in a little bit of Blaine, a dash of Sebastian and they think they have it all figured out.  NO!  That is not going to fix it.  Kurt needs to move on and let bygones, be bygones.

Sh*t Girls Say To Gay Guys

Some of my straight friends haven't seen it, so regardless if every gay boy in America posted it on Facebook yesterday, I'll do the same, because it's only fair they see it too. :-).  And honestly, our straight girlfriends are like this in every way. LOL.

Oh, and how many more sh*t videos will we have to listen to?  Geez, these videos have gone viral, and I thought the Planking Phenomenon was bad.

Here are the previous videos if you missed them.
