“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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Gay Ads That Matter - Issue No. 011 - Kingis Ice Cream Makes Gay Cool

OMG, can you imagine the outcry from Conservatives and Christians alike if a similar commercial were to air in the United States?  Hell, we can't even get a cheesy-ass Doritos commercial without fear of retribution.  Well, maybe I shouldn't be so harsh.  We did just see Will & Sonny make love on Days of Our Lives.

But now that we know how Finland advertises their ice cream.  What are we going to do with our Blue Bell here in the U.S. Lol.  

Check out the ad, it's pretty darn cool and, uh, a little gay.

The Joys of Being a Parent: I’m The Dad That Draws On Sandwich Bags

And the award for "Best Dad" goes to....

David Laferriere.

This special Dad has been drawing on his kids sandwich bags for over 5 years.  His kids don't see the images until they sit down for lunch and look to see what Dad drew for them on that particular day.  I think it's one of the greatest things I've seen online for quite some time.   

This is definitely what The Joys of Being a Parent is all about.

Plenty more pics after the jump...
