“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F. Kennedy - - - - - - - - - - - - “Imagine finding someone you love more than anything in the world, who you would risk your life for but couldn’t marry. 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. 13 - The Plastic Charm Necklace/Bracelet

Today's issue of Keeping It Old Skool is for all the Women who owned one and all the gay men who wanted one.  The infamous Plastic Charm Necklace/Bracelet.  Lol.  Lord, I remember these like it were yesterday.  Yeah, they were the Pandora bracelet of today. **coughs**

Girls went going crazy over these things, some even fighting tooth and nail for the rarest ones.  Hell, I saw girls beaten up over these cheap plastic chains.

As you can see in the pictures, it consisted of a plastic chain link with a few charms.  You would have to buy the rest or trade them with your friends.  The charms would vary from boom boxes, instruments, caricatures to kitchenware, tools, toilets, bells and whistles.  You name it, there was a charm for it.  Can you imagine if Ebay and Amazon existed in those times?  It would have been a hot mess! 
No, I never desired one, but I did like playing with my sister's :-).  What are your early memory of these little charms and chains?
