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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Things That Make You Go Hmmm... Star Wars vs. Facebook

So this is how they did it...

Things that make you go hmmm...

"To My Unborn Child... I'll put a bullet in your damn skull" (if you turn out gay)

This hate talk comes from a parent or an idiot who wants to be a parent.  Everyone knows that Twitter is the place to be nowadays, and sometimes things can get a little personal, sometimes a little too personal.  "To My Unborn Child" has become a recent topic of discussion on Twitter.  Unfortunately, it turned into a disgusting ranting space for anti-gay bigots. 

The Twitter account @Homophobes (which retweets public homophobic tweets to its 4,500 followers) created a post at Storify (a site where users can bundle tweets onto one page and add commentary to create a story) to document over 100 tweets of mostly young men and women saying they would murder their future child if he or she was gay. [source]
I honestly don't know where to being with this to tell you the truth.  All I know is that this is who you're voting for, remember that.  Yes, I'm bringing politics into this, and for those who think that this has nothing to do with it, it most certainly does.  When you have candidates running for President who want to strip you of your dignity and your life, politics are involved.  When you have a candidate running for President who says he will stop at nothing to have every gay right overturned, you might as well put a bullet in our heads.  But you know what, why don't we just turn back the hands of time and be like Iran and parts of Africa and start killing our gay children. These imbeciles/parents don't seem to mind it.  Hell, one goes so far as to say "To My Unborn Child, I will kill you if you turn gay, (I support the gays, but will never be one, neither nor my unborn baby)."

Let me put it to you in simple terms, voting for the REDs says you are supporting their causes, and until you realize this, you are fighting against everything your cousin, brother, sister, friend, co-worker, mother, father, grandmother, grandfather, uncle, aunt, niece, nephew, grandson, grandaughter - the list goes on.  You are fighting against everything they have accomplished, and are still trying to.  All we want is equal rights for everyone, and the right to love who we want.  I know what you're going to say, "Oh, I can be a RED and not support everything they stand for."  Yeah, and I can say the same thing too, "I can vote for a Democrat and not support everything they do."  Only difference is, they are not trying to take away your rights and your freedoms.  If you vote for a RED - you are supporting them, you are giving them the key to the White House, which will eventually take away the rights from the people you love.

This blog post may have sounded repetitive, but I don't care, I need to make it clear to you people.  And don't even start saying you're Christian if you're tweeting shit like this.  Hell, if you're thinking or wishing it, you're just as guilty.

Must Watch: Extreme Mountain Biker

Yeah, the thought of mountain bike riding always sounded like a lot of fun, but after watching this video, not so much.  Well, maybe if it wasn't quite so fast. One wrong move and this bike ride, would have turned into an ambulance ride.
Check out this truly insane video of Alejandro Paz, from PerĂº. He's a downhill mountain biker and current Peruvian National Champion. The video was shot in San Pedro de Casta, Lima, Peru, 3,200m above sea level. The trail begins at Marcahuasi, a famous touristic attraction of great historical relevance to the pre-Incan culture. PerĂº is a extraordinary country for Extreme sports. The video was shot in the normal frame rate and speed.

Disney Prince of the Week 010

Over the last 10 weeks I have been posting a Disney Prince of the Week.  Can you guess the movie and the name of the character who played this week's Prince? 

While he's not technically a Prince in the movie, the artist considers him the girl counter-part of a Disney Animated movie.  Hence in the eyes of the artist, he's a Prince of Disney.

80 Artists Have Used Them Before

Do you really think Justin Bieber was the first one to annoy you with the words, "Baby, Baby, Baby"?  Um No.  In the following video alone, there are 80 artists who have used them before.  Can you name them all?  Probably not, but you'll get a kick out of watching the video - it is pretty cool.  

So I think it's not so much that Bieber used the words, you just don't like him. LOL.

Movies to Watch: Rock of Ages

What gay boy doesn't like movie musicals?  I can name one off the top of my head, but he shall remain nameless :-). 

Of course, my most favorite movie musical of all time is Grease, but alongside that, I love The Little Shop of Horrors, West Side Story, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Evita, Nine, Moulin Rouge!, Chicago, Rent, Burlesque, and yes, even Grease 2.  And there's even the animated ones, but the list would be too long to proceed, so I'll get to the point I'm trying to make. 

I can't say that I have ever been more excited about a movie musical release, than the one coming out this summer.  Honestly... I was too young to get excited about the release of Grease, and I waited patiently for the release of Burlesque on DVD to finally watch it.  But this summer, "Rock of Ages" is going to rock the hell out of movie theaters for the first time in a very looooooong time.  I'm super excited about this movie.  I guess because the genre of music is from the 80's and the cast singing them are going to be fantastic.  Rock of Ages is based on the Broadway musical of the same name.

Directed by So You Think You Can Dance judge, Adam Shankman, the movie stars Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Alec Baldwin, Paul Giamatti, Russell Brand, Julianne Hough, Mary J. Blige, Bryan Cranston, Malin Ackerman, and features songs from Journey, Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner, and many, many more!  How could this movie possibly go wrong?  Check out the superb cast and movie trailer below, and judge for yourself.  Will you be watching?
