“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.

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 - - - - - - - - - - -

The Wonder Woman Trailer You'll Want To See

Don't lie.  All you gay boys are hungry for some Wonder Woman.  Even you straight folks who are into superheroes or superheroines.
Check out this awesome Wonder Woman trailer my partner Ryan shared with me last night.  You'd almost think that if a fan can make a trailer, why can't Hollywood get their act together and make our damn movie?!?!

Some Pretty Cool Stuff - Issue No. 008

I'm eager to share "Some Pretty Cool Stuff" I found on the internet this week.  One of the items can even help you in the event you're held captive in another country or your own home.

For those with limited space, the other two items - the bucket and the hanger are definite must-haves.  I have always wanted a hanger for my gym bag so that I can easily store it away after I put on my dress shirt for work.  And the bucket? Well, I don't really need one, but it would be very convenient to have in my garage for washing my car.

Let's start off with this pretty cool bucket.

Pack-Away Bucket
Once in a while we all need a bucket. No need for cheap plastic or heavy, galvanized metal versions that are cumbersome and awkward to store. Enter the award-winning Pack-Away bucket: another of life's little problems solved by Wacky Practicals. Buy $31

SOLO Collapsible Hanger
Don’t let your closet slow you down. SOLO is a collapsible hanger that makes it easy to hang and remove clothes in one swift motion. Its unique design allows you to insert into a wide array of shirts, and then grab and go with just one hand!
-4 hangers in each set
-Collapsible design for grabbing clothes in a single motion
-Slim shape for easy insertion into button-up shirts and turtlenecks
-Folds for travel and storage
-Smooth polypropylene plastic in choice of white or charcoal
Buy $10.99

Titanium Escape Ring
It's a simple but elegant-looking ring made of titanium, cut from solid barstock and polished to a mirror finish.
But unlike all other rings, this one contains a saw and handcuff shim pick combination tool which is completely hidden from view when worn.
Located on a finger, its always in the exact area needed to quickly access and deploy, even when handcuffed.
The shim can be used to open single-locked handcuffs, while the saw can cut zip-ties, disposable handcuffs, duct tape, rope, and other non-metallic materials. Currently out of stock, but when available it will cost you $79.95

Not All Cops Are Jerks

It's no secret that cops have a bad rep, but not all cops are jerks.  Some of you might even have friends or family that are in the profession.  

I wanted to share these images courtesy of pleated-jeans.  Because we all know there's a good side of the law.

The Woes of Being a Bad Parent - The Chocolate Egg

God bless this poor kid's heart.  He trusted his daddy would give him a delicious chocolate candy called an OVO, made by Kinder.  


He didn't get a chocolate egg.  Ohhh, "The Woes of Being a Bad Parent." Or not?

I'll be honest, I laughed at the video, but then stopped as I saw the kid crying and crying.  I can't count the number of times I grew up facing these type of scenarios.  Especially from most of my male cousins.  It's hard to say once a bully, always a bully, because I believe people can change. But there's a limit to what we can do.  We grow up trusting our moms and dads, look to them for nourishment and guidance, and never expect them to betray us.

What do you think? Should you troll your child? Do you think it's okay if it's only done once?

I think if you do it once, then leave it at that and explain to the child what you just did.  But if you continuously do it throughout their life, I truly believe deep scars will be made, that you wish you hadn't inflicted upon them.
