OK, so this is my new chat thread, people! I said I was going to start one and this is gonna be it, so MODERATORS please close my original chat thread, it is no longer usable nor necessary.

My newest chat thread will be different than others I've had. There will be less sexy photos, but don't fret, I will continue include pics of sexii boiz throughout the thread. But this chat thread is going to be a little more about the way I see things and my life perspective on real life situations, on tennis, and things that are close to me. I will be discussing more on global LGBTQ rights, more on political issues and societal issues and real world matters that have an impact on me and us all, and of course, I will continue talking about sex, but instead of just discussing my sexual encounters, which I will do, I also will be discussing the principles of sex more often. It will be a little more in depth, like what I like about having sex, what others enjoy sexually, and the issues that revolve around sex in the world. This chat thread will be more a discussion thread than a chat thread, and be more open for others to discuss matters, ask me personal questions..............overall, just be more philosophically centered.

So...........welcome to my new chat thread, bitches, all are welcome :wavey:

So, let me get right to it, I have something important on my mind. Given it's Sunday this is very appropriate for me to say. I was raised religious but organized religion and it's war on my community make it extremely difficult for me to actually seek or want a relationship within the church, ever again. What I see organized religion turn people into, and how organized religion is used to justify the worst of atrocities and complete inhumanity, it's not something I want to involve myself in. I feel like LGBTQ citizens and equality supporters have been put in a position where we are forced to choose between our sexuality (for gays)/beliefs (for straights) and religion/God. Like we cannot be Godly if we aren't anti-gay or ex-gay.

Now, I know not to bunch all religious folk into this bubble. I think there is a difference between believing in GOD and believing in a religion, that a lot of people do not/cannot decipher. But the reality is, I don't want to be a drone. I don't want to be brainwashed and I don't want to be dictated to; I don't think it's healthy basing your entire life on what an ancient story book has to say. I think it's ridiculous, in fact.

I know a lot of people believe in God and/or are religious yet believe in gay rights and human rights in general. They don't hold views that are discriminatory against women. They don't resent people who believe in a different moral code/a different God. They don't look down on atheists. I wish these people would get loud, stand up for what's right and spread a more positive message and not allow hateful forces drive people into thinking all who believe in God and are religious are bigots. I respect the choice of everyone to believe as they please but I don't think enough has been done to prevent bigots from using God as a weapon to justify behavior that has set humanity back and harmed/killed so many, throughout history and current times. People are too PC, and not willing to call things what they are. And the people in the best position to make things clear, and educate the masses on what God (whichever God one believes)/religion is supposed to be about, which I don't think is the hate and violence in his name that we're seeing throughout the world, are the ones who need to be the out in the forefront and SPEAKING OUT and doing their part to make the world a better place for all. I'm tired of the bullshit and people tip-toeing around this issue because they don't want to offend.

Too often, society makes religion/God/religious folks the supposed victims of an attack against their beliefs, but the reality is, they bring on negative views others have of them with actions like this:
http://www.addictinginfo.org/2012/02/26/priest-walks-out-of-womans-funeral-because-of-her-gay-daughter/

Priest Walks Out Of Woman’s Funeral Because Of Her Gay Daughter

The battle in this country between the right and the left is raging. Since the right has no answers to the economic questions we face, they’ve decided to concentrate on dividing the country on so-called “moral” issues, one of those being the demonizing of gay and lesbian people. Little by little, they are losing the battle, as we see states individually legalizing gay marriage and recognizing that our forefathers intended that ALL are created equal and marriage is an equal right. But that doesn’t stop the right from carrying on their battle.

Something terrible happened this past weekend in Maryland and the fact that it was Maryland, a state that has just proclaimed that all are equal and has enshrined that concept into state law, goes to highlight the lengths to which the right will go. In this instance, the right was personified by Father Marcel Guarnizo, who officiated at the funeral of a former family member of mine. She was no longer a family member because I divorced the man who was her blood relative. But with social media these days, a person can remain in touch with those who, although there is no longer a family connection, are still people who are valued.

My friend Barbara, the daughter of the deceased woman, was denied communion at her mother’s funeral. She was the first in line and Fr. Guarnizo covered the bowl containing the host and said to her, “I cannot give you communion because you live with a woman and that is a sin according to the church.” To add insult to injury, Fr. Guarnizo left the altar when she delivered her eulogy to her mother. When the funeral was finished he informed the funeral director that he could not go to the gravesite to deliver the final blessing because he was sick.

I will tell you a little about the woman who drove that priest from the altar. She is kind, she is smart, she is funny and she works hard promoting the arts. She pays her bills, she cares deeply for her family and she loved her mother and her mother loved her right back. And now she will never set foot in a Catholic church again and who can blame her?

It is time for Christians of all stripes to stop and think about the teachings of the Jesus they proclaim to love so deeply and revere so much. I spent twelve years in Catholic school and the Jesus I was told about would never have turned away anyone for any reason and certainly not on the occasion of burying a parent. Fr. Guarnizo has a lot to learn about Christianity and the Catholic Church has a lot to learn about the teachings of Jesus if behavior of this sort is tolerated.

I am not about to paint all Christians with a broad brush. There are those out there who understand that the teachings of Jesus boil down to one thing. And that thing is Love. For if you love, you do not deny a person the solace of communion with the Creator, if that is their belief. You judge not, lest ye be judged. Only God knows the true heart of any person and in the end, if there is to be judgment, it will not come from some misguided, prejudiced priest who needs to go back to the seminary and learn the basics. And if he can’t find them there, then he needs to get down on his knees and pray to his Jesus to forgive him the terrible trespass he visited upon a grieving woman on the occasion of the death of her mother.

This is but one small story but it is indicative of the battle raging in America today. It is an ugly battle and one I never thought I would see. But it is here and we must deal with it. We must keep politics out of religion and religion out of politics. Perhaps if we can get back to a place where the separation of church and state are once again accepted as one of the founding principles of this country, stop trying to out-Christian each other, stop vilifying other religions and other people based on purely human and not godly concepts, we will begin to mend the fractures that are tearing us apart today. To do that, the Father Guarnizos and the Rick Santorums of the world will have to undergo a radical change of heart and I don’t think they have it in them. So it is up to the rest of us.

As for me, I send my love and condolences to my friend Barbara and all of the other family members who were made to witness such an egregious display of prejudice in such an inappropriate setting. To Father Guarnizo, I say, “Jesus would weep.”

Everyone read that? Now read what the main supervisor to this priest has to say about his views on this issue, and he comparing same-sex relationships to slavery:

Dear SJN Parishioners,
One of the issues that the General Assembly will grapple with in the coming session is Same Sex “Marriage.” Yet again we have to address political issues. But, this is not because religion is dabbling in politics it is because politicians are dabbling in human nature. We hold firmly to the truth that God created the world. He also created human beings and gave them a nature, a way of existing. While the doctrine of creation is perhaps a “religious truth” we also hold that human nature is a natural truth open to all
people of good will. The arguments we place in the public square are not religious as such. Rather, they give an
account of the human person based on principles of what is our highest good individually and what serves the common
good of society.

The contrary argument is an account of the human person that says that we are radical individuals and that the only rule of behavior is that each of us is free to follow his impulses and desires as long as we do not hurt anyone else. This is a very negative view of human nature. Its basic
acknowledgement is that we owe nothing to anyone else, either individually or to society as a whole. Under this account, the only moral question anyone has to answer in regard to a particular action is this: “is this action what I want to do and will it advance the fulfillment of my desires without interfering with anyone seeking to fulfill his desires?” This rule denies that any of us owes anything to
anyone else. This is the moral compass behind contraception, abortion, no-fault divorce, in-vitro fertilization, embryonic stem cell research, slavery, and same sex marriage.

The invocation of slavery and same sex marriage in the same category may seem startling. But, they both come under the same moral category. While it is obvious how slavery uses other people as objects to fulfill someone else’s needs, the same may not be so obvious in regard to same sex marriage.


With the technology available to “manufacture” a child, same sex couples can set up the illusion of parenthood. But, this is an illusion. This illusion will be shattered by the child himself. Imagine a young teenage boy who learns biology. He then looks at these two men or
two women who claim to be his parents. He knows that their claim cannot be true. Perhaps one of them contributed part of what was necessary to bring him into the world. But, which one? And, who contributed the other part? Imagine if
as a young teen the reality of your life became a lie, an illusion set up to satisfy the desires of your “parents.”

We are not isolated individuals. Our human nature demands that our very existence comes from a social relationship, the coming together of a man and a woman.
Our human nature also demands that this relationship be one that is enduring. This ensures that every child knows that he is loved for himself and not because he is a product meant for the fulfillment of someone else’s impulses and desires.

God bless, Fr. LaHoo

Now, the way I see it, I don't understand even attempting to associate yourself in a world where people resent you solely for existing. Again, I know there are non-bigoted religious folk around. But you're putting yourself in the line of fire regardless, and too many people get burned. But, if a person is raised religious, they shouldn't be forced to choose between who they are and what they believe. The fact that religion has been placed on the same plane as SEXUAL ORIENTATION is pathetic in itself as one is an inborn, immutable trait and the other is neither inborn nor immutable. But the fact now that people are actually attempting to supersede the rights of gays, women.......the fact we're seeing people being killed throughout the Middle East to this day, the Israeli-Palestinian war, we can go on and on, religion is at the forefront of all of these atrocities. Why can't people just move beyond this? I know that the "power of God", whatever that may be, allows people to believe they have the authority to basically walk on water and do whatever the heck they want. But this shit is crazy. And it's getting worse as fewer people adhere to these archaic ways of thinking and living. We all need to do our part to break the cycle, people. Things like this affect us all.

Shit.................our community will never fucking progress until we move the goalposts and stop allowing bigots to dictate the terms of the argument. Anti-gays successfully have turned our rights into not just a debate, but a MORAL debate and a MORAL fight against evil. We as a community have given them entirely too much power and allowed them to use "God" and "morality" as a weapon to hold us down. We need to move the goalposts into an argument of LOGIC. And when we do that, we will win, and we will attain the full equality we require. Because there is nothing logical in discrimination. But as long as EMOTIONS run the argument, our rights will always be up for debate. Until we do our part to change the argument from a battle of opinions and wills, to a clear-cut argument of logic and facts vs. irrational personal views, we cannot completely win. We have logic on our side and haven't used it to our advantage.

I also have to say, if you're closeted in this day and age, unless the circumstances your living in make it a necessity, you are ultimately part of the problem, and not the solution. If you want respect and rights, you have to earn them, and by being in the closet, you're showing the world you don't respect yourself enough to live your life as YOU see fit.

You must have had some interesting and complex experiences during your lifetime, more so than the average person on this evidence.I've been through a lot and seen a lot...........but the biggest thing is that I'm very sensitive and both very perceptive and introspective at the same time. So a lot of things that others may just brush off will have a more profound impact on my psyche. I think about things in a more in-depth way than I think many do, and I remember things that occur to me for a long time, things other may brush off over time. With the sensitivity, I care about things that others may be less likely to think of, and I'm more emotional than I think most people tend to be; I wear my heart on my sleeve. I would definitely say my experiences are different than the average person, not the least of which because I am gay, and therefore, I see/experience everything that comes with being gay in the world, good, bad and in-between. That definitely has had the biggest impact on the way I see things in the world. You're sort of forced to learn things on the fly and very quickly about real life, and there is a lot to internalize.

We're in 2012 and people like Rick Santorum have a relevant political voice. That is beyond scary. Mr. Santorum will go to any length to denigrate all he sees as morally bankrupt. Of course, much of what he considers morally bankrupt is truly a reflection of how scary this man is, and why it is IMPERATIVE he, nor any Republican for the matter, win the United States presidency in November.

Read the transcript of this horrific robo-call that is circulating in Ohio, produced by a group that supports Santorum. It's things like this that cause the discrimination, stigmatization and hatred against LGBTQ citizens and why issues such as LGBTQ suicides to this day remain the severe issue in American (and global) society they continue to be:

http://www.mmdnewswire.com/ohio-robos-hit-romney-on-gay-issues-92302.html
OHIO ROBOS HIT ROMNEY ON GAY ISSUES

One day before Ohio's delegate-rich GOP presidential primary election, Super Tuesday's biggest prize, national frontrunner Mitt Romney is getting hit hard on his gay rights record with millions of robo-calls, emails and videos. Aiming for Republicans as well as registered Democrats, who are free to cross over to vote in the GOP contest, an ecumenical group of Jews and Christians supporting Romney's rival, Rick Santorum, released the robo-call script this morning. It reads:

"Hi, my name is Brian Camenker; I'm a Jew from Massachusetts.

"And, this is Darcy Brandon; I'm a Christian from California. If you believe as we do that marriage and sexuality should only be between a man and a woman, please help us stop Mitt Romney.

"As Governor, Romney signed 'Gay Youth Pride Day' proclamations, promoted homosexuality in our elementary schools, and unconstitutionally ordered state officals to make Massachusetts America's first same-sex marriage state. Romney supports open homosexuality in the military, the appointment of homosexual judges, and the ENDA law, making it illegal to fire a man who wears a dress and high heels to work, even if he's your kid's teacher. When you vote tomorrow, please vote for social sanity and Rick Santorum, NOT for homosexuality and Mitt Romney.

"Rick Santorum is the ONLY candidate who can be trusted to uphold traditional marriage, a straight military, and the rights of American children to have both a mother and a father. This message paid for by Jews and Christians Together.org and not authorized by any candidate. To get the facts before you vote, visit Jews and Christians Together.org."

That website, urging Ohio voters to "get the shocking facts on Mitt Romney," links to a page called "The Romney Files". That page, identical to email content blasted to over a million Ohio residents on Sunday, documents Romney's progressive record on gay issues, a record that may be problematic for the former Massachusetts governor in more conservative Super Tuesday states like Ohio, Georgia and Tennessee. "The Romney Files", assembled by the Boston-based group Mass Resistance, show a gubernatorial proclamation Romney signed declaring "Gay Youth Pride Week"; a video comparison of RomneyCare to ObamaCare, two similar approaches to socialized medicine; a Planned Parenthood questionnaire Romney signed in favor of publicly-subsidized abortion, abortion drugs and contraceptives; and a claim that "Romney's wife Ann personally donated to Planned Parenthood!" That page links to a more in-depth "Mitt Romney Report" full of details that trouble GOP conservatives trying to select their presidential nominee.

Brian Camenker, president of Mass Resistance and compiler of much of that Romney research and one of the robo-call voices said, "Mitt Romney would be the most liberal Republican ever nominated for the Presidency. Romney is so far left, he spoke against the right of the Boy Scouts to screen-out homosexuals. Mitt Romney proved during the January 8 Meet the Press debate that he's still as far left on the gay agenda as always. He proudly announced, 'a member of my cabinet was gay. I appointed people to the bench regardless of their sexual orientation.' Asked when he last stood up and spoke out for increasing gay rights, Romney said 'Right now.'"

Dr. Gary Cass, president of DefendChristians.org and a member of Jews & Christians Together.org said, "We believe Rick Santorum is the only viable alternative to Romney. All Jews and Christians are aware that the Bible, from the Jewish Books of Moses to the Christian Gospels to the epistles of Saint Paul, commands God's faithful to love the sinner but hate the sin, and indeed to recognize homosexuality as sin. Romney, on the other hand, endorses homosexuality as a good choice for young people."

Cass said that he supports Santorum, the former Pennsylvania Senator, because last year Santorum signed The Marriage Vow, a political pledge document from Iowa also embraced by Texas Gov. Rick Perry and U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) last year. That eventually earned Santorum a narrow victory in Iowa and the endorsement of conservative radio personality Dr. James Dobson and other evangelicals. Santorum, said Cass, "courageously put his name to some very bold, very Judeo-Christian, and extremely politically-incorrect statements about marriage and sexuality." Santorum's pro-marriage vow:

- Recognizes "the overwhelming statistical evidence that married people enjoy better health, better sex, longer lives,
greater financial stability, and that children raised by a mother and a father together experience better learning, less addiction, less legal trouble, and less extramarital pregnancy;"

- Rejects "anti-scientific bias which holds, in complete absence of empirical proof, that non-heterosexual inclinations are genetically determined, irresistible and akin to innate traits like race, gender and eye color;"

- Rejects "anti-scientific bias which holds, against all empirical evidence, that homosexual behavior in particular, and sexual promiscuity in general, optimizes individual or public health;"

- Contains a pledge of "Personal fidelity to my spouse" and "Respect for the marital bonds of others" which Gingrich, Cain, Romney and Ron Paul declined to sign, but which Bachmann and Perry joined Santorum in signing.

Cass, an ordained Presbyterian minister, said, "Rick Santorum signed the Iowa vow last summer while Romney was calling for more gay hiring." Another link at Jews & Christians Together.org connects to a voter guide from Family Research Council that shows Romney in support of ENDA, the proposed federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act "that adds sexual orientation as a protected class." Camenker, the Jewish Romney opponent from Massachusetts, said ENDA "would forbid the firing of transvestite elementary school teachers, open bisexuals, and other bad examples to America's young people."

yeah I didn't post much because I was pissed the way that went down I'm pissed too, but I've moved past it. Actually, I haven't really, but I'm going to be the better person and not involve myself in that drama again. But there are a lot of people on this forum who I will NEVER befriend closely after the entire situation resulting in I getting banned for four months and everyone else getting off easily. It's obviously bullshit, it's obvious the mods totally fucked up, but it happened and now I move on.

I hope you feel better today love. Those moderate sick days are really the worst because you feel like you have enough energy and are healthy enough to do regular things......until you actually try to do those things. And then you're stuck with the reality you feel like utter shit. Worst part is when/if that sickness sticks with you for several days, you can never accomplish what you want to and it puts you farther behind the 8-ball. Hopefully you finish your homework successfully!

How have you been love?:) :hug: :hug:I've been living hun, you know how life is :hug: I can't complain, I'm alive. I have family and friends, so overall I'm content. Hopefully outside of this sickness you have currently everything is going good with you.

Matt Ebden is such an awful player. Boring as heck, no personality on court, no weapons. No nothing. Why do so many people support him here? It truly confuses me. He literally makes me sleepy watching him play, and I pull my hair out hoping he loses his matches. Guys like him, Lorenzi, Soeda, it's all about the opponent failing because none of them can win their matches. They don't have any weapon to win a match. That's why I dislike them, more than anything. These players bring NOTHING to the table and are essentially a waste of a draw spot, that a better player with the potential to truly do damage could take.

I totally agree with this. Even though i love my family i really wish i can live on my own, its such a pain in the ass to not have as much privacy as you like even though you have your own room.

I know right, the guy is so boooooooooooooooooring to watch, same as Kevin Anderson i have to admit. I watched Ebden play in sydney tournament and for some reason he reminds me of how Tomic hits the ball which is so eh not so interesting but hes clever i should say but not that great to watch IMO.

I am the self-anointed prince of MTF and am honored that you have also bestowed this title to my name :yeah: Bitches will just have to deal.

Filo V.
03-12-2012, 02:44 PM
My most hated players are Soeda, Matosevic, Capdeville, Lorenzi and Kukushkin. I'm starting/learning to unhate Ebden. It's a process but I'm beginning to appreciate the things he brings to the table. Although he lacks weapons, at least he plays a game where he's not totally a hack, needing an opponents' errors to win. I thought about it yesterday and was like, you know, Ebden is definitely a better player than horrible ones like Soeda, or a grinder with zero talent like Dodig. Ebden has some game. So I don't hate him anymore. He's beaten too many good players the past 8 months for me to deny that at this point.

The other five players mentioned, though, are complete shit. Matosevic, his run is 100% confidence driven. Once he loses a match he feels like he should have won, he'll decline again. The other four players are just terrible players. You can include Antonio Veic on that list as well, he's horrible. Dodig, I don't dislike him, but I'm excited he'll be out of the top 100 soon, since he has no talent.

Filo V.
03-13-2012, 01:10 AM
Although I legitimately don't hate Ebden, I still DO NOT and WILL NOT understand how he has so many fans with the game he has. He doesn't do shit with the ball at all. He's such a dull, uninteresting, unimaginative player. There is absolutely zero in anything he does that makes me see how people would be so quick to support him, of all players. And he has a lot of supporters, which is the weird thing. He's really just a nondescript random whatever player.

I can say he's hard nosed and he's a smart player. But I prefer players with actual talent and Ebden lacks talent. Different strokes for different folks, I guess, but it honestly sort of annoys me.

I like Mardy, but when he loses a match he feels he should be winning, or the course of the match isn't going the way he wants, he acts mad salty. Really salty, he loses control of his emotions and starts pouting, often doing similar things Roddick does, looking to the umpire, the fans, the opponent, to start an argument to fire himself up. I think he intentionally creates arguments to gain energy in his game if he feels like things are going badly, or going south for him in the match. He looks for an outlet and that outlet is abusing whoever he can, really. It's extremely unbecoming and reeks of insecurity.

People need to be careful about what type of people they are picking up for a night of sex and pleasure. What people conceivably do for fun can end up being a nightmare very quickly. There have been numerous stories recently of older gay men especially being taken advantage of, physically, sexually, being robbed, and even being killed, by hustlers who they are picking up from clubs, picking up from off the street, or renting a hooker for the night off the web. A lot of these hustlers are ex-cons, a whole lot of them are gay-for-pay or closeted. And almost all of them are after the money in the pockets of these older gays, who tend to be very rich. These hustlers see gay men as weak and easy targets and know that gay men, sadly, tend to be an easy lay compared to women. They see these older gays as very easily taken advantage of and they know that they won't be able to fight back. So, what do all of us need to do, gay and straight, young and old?

KNOW YOUR SURROUNDINGS AT ALL TIMES when out in public places, especially when you're at a club and any sort of place where there are a lot of people, or where lighting can be poor. Do not ever leave your drink exposed for anyone to tamper with. If you have to use the bathroom or you want to talk to someone and can't bring your drink with you, ask a friend to look after the drink or cover the drink with a coaster or some sort of protection. Don't talk to or associate with people you don't know unless you have a good feel for the type of person they are. Talk to a friend and get the 411 on an individual before taking them home, before getting too friendly with someone who has bad intentions. Don't put yourself out there too much around people you don't know. If you throw yourself out there too much, people WILL see you as a slut. Not only will your reputation be damaged, but devious minded individuals will see you as an easy target to take advantage of and profit from.

This all seems like common sense, but a lot of people tend to lose focus of these things when out and about. They're thinking about the hot guy they just saw with the trendy clothes, the music being played by the DJ, or about what drinks they want to order. We all need to be responsible and have that radar on, have fun but also be in control and don't make yourself an easy target. Also ALWAYS look out for your friends and keep them close, because they are ultimately the ones outside of yourself who will protect you from potential danger. Have fun but be smart at the same time and be responsible.

Dharun Ravi is an ANIMAL. He'll be my next subject matter of this thread. Dharun Ravi is the idiotic bigot who is responsible for the death of then 18-year-old gay teen Tyler Clementi by webcamming Tyler having sex with a hookup without his consent. Dharun has NEVER shown any remorse whatsoever for what he did and couldn't care less about Tyler. I hope he gets deported, and yes that may sound discriminatory, but he shames ALL immigrants who come into this country and follow our laws. Fuck him and fuck everyone who defends him.

Dharun Ravi is an ANIMAL.

Didn't know who this guy was and thought for a sec you said ANIMAL in the good sense. Thought it was too good to be true.. Asians never get called ANIMALS in the good sense.

Interesting story. Don't even know the law on accidentally causing someone to suicide by webcamming them.. though it should be a crime to spy on someone and put their actions on the net. That's just a beyond cruel thing to do. Other than that, they probably won't be able to prove the discrimination methinks.

Filo V.
03-24-2012, 01:36 AM
Animal can be used positively and negatively, true. In this case, I mean below human value.

Dharun has already been charged, convicted and will likely be deported from the United States and spend at least a couple years in prison. Of course, however, his Indian heritage has little to do with he being an animal. Just the fact he's a fucked up little kid.

Had a feeling you weren't done. What takes the cake is that whenever a South Asian is discussed, you can bet your bottom dollar it's because they either did something perverted/criminal or blew themselves up or need to be laughed at for doing something crazy in the name of religion. Always something negative at the least. For once I'd like to see a positive discussion about the successful, world renowned South Asian's like.. erm.. hm.. eh.. nevermind.

He can't be responsible for Tyler Clementi's death if the suicide was not a reasonably foreseeable consequence of the webcamming. Yes, it was a dickheaded and horrible thing to do, but to hold him responsible for the suicide stretches the limits of logic and causality.

But why would you film it though, thats what is making this case very weird and interesting i mean i understand that if you dont wanna see your friend kill yourself or you ran to the nearest phone to call someone to stop this guy from killing himself or stop this guy from killing himself. But when you film someone killing themselves that makes you not only know about the guys situation but make you look like a murder of conspiracy or whatever that charge is.

03-24-2012, 03:39 PM
He didn't film the guy killing himself; he filmed him having sex with another man in their shared dorm room, which possibly distressed Tyler Clementi so much that he killed himself. It was obviously a fucked up and stupid thing to do but to hold Ravi responsible for his roommate's death is just going too far. In fact, I completely disagree that it was even a hate crime.

Sham Kay
03-24-2012, 05:15 PM
Basically, it would be just as bad if he had filmed his roommate with a girl as it was with the guy he filmed him with. You can't just assume it was a hate crime. He should receive whatever punishment is fitting for doing the idiotic thing of filming peoples private lives and putting it on the internet without consent.

What this story shows is that the World still hasn't advanced enough for the majority to accept different sexualities, which is most likely why Tyler suicided. This is why this story should be getting the media attention. Not for some assumed hate crime that wouldn't even be mentioned if Tyler was heterosexual.. which ironically again shows how our World STILL views homosexuality as "different" and should be treated differently.

Filo V.
03-25-2012, 12:35 AM
I'm totally tired right now and not in the position to engage in much conversation but what I will say is Dharun Ravi IS homophobic, he DID webcam Tyler because he's gay, he did tell friends and tweet fellow students as a means to essentially create a viewing party of Tyler having sex with the man he brought to his dorm, and on twitter he made NUMEROUS anti-gay comments. The first thing he did on twitter when he found out Tyler was gay was write (paraphrasing) "FUCK MY LIFE, MY ROOMATE IS A GAY GUY". He mocked Tyler Clementi because he was poor and his social status. Molly Wei, the other horrible human being who set up the webcam to spy on Tyler, said Dharun ENJOYED making fun of Tyler because he thought Tyler was a weird loser and than Dharun was not comfortable with a gay roomate although he supposedly isn't homophobic.

The reality is, what happened happened because of Tyler's sexuality. Dharun Ravi wasn't charged for killing Tyler Clementi, he wasn't on trial for that, although he IS responsible for his death. No, he was charged and subsequently found guilty of invasion of privacy, bias intimidation (meaning, intimidating Tyler because he's gay/Tyler felt intimidated by Dharun and vulnerable and attacked for being gay) tampering with evidence, which is what he did as well by DELETING the twitter messages that conclusively showed he intentionally set up webcam sessions and was planning on setting up another until Tyler committed suicide and all his friends thought he was insane, as well as witness tampering, which he did by telling his friends to NOT TALK TO/LIE to police.

He tried to influence those around him to essentially make factually incorrect statements to police to save himself. He didn't take the stand for his trial. Now he's going on TV shows trying to build up his reputation and look better in the national eye. What's obvious is he couldn't care less about what he did, he has absolutely no remorse, he doesn't feel responsible, and he thinks Tyler was fucked up and that's why he committed suicide. He truly believes what he did was just some harmless prank. He needs a quick, hard dose of reality to smack him in the face. Maybe a few years of prison time will provide that for the punk.

This is why this story should be getting the media attention. Not for some assumed hate crime that wouldn't even be mentioned if Tyler was heterosexual.. which ironically again shows how our World STILL views homosexuality as "different" and should be treated differently.I agree, but as for the last part, the reason why this happened is actually BECAUSE Tyler is gay. So that's where the difference in behavior in terms of how one treats a person who is straight compared to how they treat a gay person, comes up, at least that's where it started.
Dharun and his friends basically thought it was funny to sneak in on Tyler having gay sex, on in their eyes, ****** sex. That's what it truly comes down to. They wanted to look and laugh at the poor, socially inept queer having ****** sex. If Tyler were straight, the "this kid is a freak" mentality that was shared in the inner-circle of Dharun and his friends wouldn't have existed. Tyler had said he was being stared at, and people were even laughing at him with he noticing. Dharun Ravi turned Tyler Clementi into the whipping boy at Rutgers University, and that is ALL AND ONLY because Tyler Clementi was a gay man.

I also agree that Tyler being gay made suicide a more likely proposition in his position unlike if he were straight, but then again, we'll never know that for sure, even with it being something that seems obvious. It's unfortunate but the reality is as you put it. Society in general has not really put the stamp of approval on homosexuality. Tyler's parents weren't necessarily beacons of support when Tyler was alive, either, and that's a HUGE reason why LGBTQ teens have higher suicide rates than other groups, the lack of parental support. Tyler felt alone and felt vulnerable and didn't feel as if he had anyone on his side, anyone to protect him. It makes me want to cry thinking about because I remember feeling the same way when I was a teenager, although not for being gay. It's so horrible, and Tyler was such a sensitive, soft kid. It's just so mean what Dharun did to him.

People make mistakes every day. Actions------not words, are what determine whether a person is contrite when they ask for forgiveness. When you've been crossed so many times, you begin to lose a sense of empathy. What people will say when the eyes are on them and what they say in the privacy of their own voice are often two different things. People will make excuses for their behavior instead of reflecting and inspecting their own internalized issues, and making a change. Admitting you're wrong about something is the hardest thing for many to do in their lives. But when you have the maturity and introspective ability to do so and do your part to fix your mistakes, and become a better person, the positive feelings gained, in yourself and from others, are so rewarding.

I get really, really, really tired of people who just don't fucking get it, who say offensive things, and then apologize after the fact. Yeah, they may not have meant to offend, they may not see themselves as bigoted, but if you say it, then that's something in your heart. That's apart of your conscious, that's who you are, to some extent. Apologizes don't wash that away. It's tiring to see people use offensive language or make jokes based on stereotypes and not understand nor have the foresight to realize that will cause problems for them later. Why can't people just THINK before they speak? It's so fucking annoying and it's hurtful. Saying "I'm sorry" doesn't repair the collateral damage that comes with each and every joke aimed against your identity.

I wish people would be nicer to one another. Offensive comments directed at me don't affect me but offensive comments directed to the people I care about, or just in any given situation when such comments are unnecessary, just aren't welcome and do nothing for our society and to further discussions of any situation. People need to think before the speak.

I do let everything hang out, I wear my heart on my sleeve and am an open book, but none of that necessarily means people know why I am thinking what I am thinking. You just know what I'm thinking. There is more to getting someone than that.

I don't really feel like I connect with most people here at all. Just the basic conversations people here have, I don't really relate with. The whole ajde thing, the little convos you have in the attention seeker thread and lurkers thread, I don't talk like that. The small-talk stuff, that's now how I operate. But whenever I say something like this, I get called arrogant. Or if I make my own chat thread, I'm called an attention-seeker. I don't really feel like I fit in here. Which overall, I don't mind because I like being independent.

I feel some shame sometimes, in that, if I'm going to be an ally for my community, why have loose sexual encounters with several various men I don't have any plans on being in a relationship with? Isn't that immoral? Is that perpetuating stereotypes? But the way I see it, enjoying sex and sexuality is an amazing thing.

Harvey Weinstein never met a ratings controversy that he couldn't massage into a publicity campaign. He did it in the '90s, when he turned up the heat on the teensploitation psychodrama "Kids," all because the film received a rating of NC-17 (which it probably deserved). He did it two years ago, when the downbeat-sexy "Blue Valentine" got slapped with the same scarlet letter (which it didn't deserve at all). But in the case of Bully, Weinstein isn't just mounting a PR blitz -- he's fighting the good fight. The movie is a sensitive and eye-opening documentary about the epidemic of bullying in American public schools. It's a film that would do well to be seen by as many teenagers as possible, and Weinstein had wanted to show it in schools. Yet "Bully" received an R rating, all because the F-word is used in it a handful of times. The Weinstein Co. has now decided to release "Bully" unrated. This doesn't solve the problem, since some theaters refuse to show unrated movies. So the very audience that Bully was made for still might have a hard time getting near it.

Weinstein hired David Boies and Ted Olson, the attorneys who helped overturn California's Proposition 8, to take on the Motion Picture Association of America. The MPAA, with its famously fusty, punitive, and -- some would say -- arbitrary ratings system, defended the R rating for "Bully," stating that it wouldn't be fair to make an exception just because of the movie's good intentions. I agree that they shouldn't just make an exception: They should do a heck of a lot more. That the MPAA is content to keep a film as humane and as deeply unsensational as "Bully" away from most of the adolescents whose lives it could possibly help is a folly and outrage.

"Bully," directed by Lee Hirsch, takes a sympathetic, insightful look at five anguished kids from suburban and rural communities around the country and how the bullying that they've endured has shaped their lives. Tyler, 17 years old, was so mocked by his peers that he hanged himself. Alex, 12, born prematurely (at just 26 weeks), is a sweet, smart kid singled out because of his "fish face." He has been slammed into lockers, sat on during bus rides, called "b****" and "f*****" -- and after all that, it was only really clear how bad the problem was when he stopped complaining. (Being bullied had become his only reality.) Kelby, a 16-year-old lesbian, suffered abuse to the point that she tried to commit suicide three times.

Why are these kids targeted? Some of it is based on looks and prejudice, but much of it represents nothing more -- or less -- than the ostracization of those who are lonely or shy. They're viewed as "outsiders," and then vilified for it. "Bully" is a portrait of good kids reduced to shells of themselves by a climate of toxic hate and fear. There's only one thing missing from the movie, and that's an in-depth look at the bullies themselves. We're forced to guess at what has made them into junior sadists. My own conjecture is that their almost complete lack of empathy represents the channeling of a larger current of intolerance now at loose in the culture -- the kind you see increasingly in politics, not to mention all over the Internet.

Arguments against the ratings system have, of course, been made many times before: by directors, producers, and film critics -- and, in 2006, by Kirby Dick in his documentary "This Film Is Not Yet Rated," which opened the door on the MPAA's antiquated maze of codes and restrictions. As Dick powerfully argued, what's fundamentally broken about the MPAA isn't the system so much as the thinking behind the judgments. The ratings-board members, swathed in their shadow of anonymity, insist on a nearly Victorian double standard for sex and violence: Anything associated with the former (like the word "f---") is treated as taboo, whereas horror and action films that feature over-the-top violence routinely get a PG-13.
This outdated distinction may be a reflection of "American values," but that does not make it right. And the fact that the board tends to go easier on big-budget blockbusters may be the shoddiest double standard of all. It's an indication that too many questionable agendas are guiding these judgments.

A film like Bully makes it clear that there's something deeply wrong with this picture. For this is an urgent and moral movie; there shouldn't be a puritanical roadblock standing between it and its audience. As long as the MPAA is issuing its cavalier decrees, though, they're the ones acting like bullies.

This extremely thought-provoking, emotional, educational film has been rated R by the MPAA because the f-word is used a couple times. For shame; an extreme disgrace. This is bullying in real life, and collusion, done to prevent important message to reach the masses and keep people ignorant. Everyone needs to see this film, young and old, and understand that things are NOT always greener on the other side.

I am about 10 minutes away from spitting in my grandfathers face. He's such a piece of fucking shit. Period. Don't care about the family aspect, because I'll always love him as blood. But as a person, he's a fucked up individual. Nasty, surly, hostile, unpleasant, and FAKE. I absolutely cannot stand him, and he blatantly favoritizes my brother over me, which means little, since I essentially never talk to him. I'll say the last real conversation we had was about a year ago. We've just grown farther and farther apart as I've gotten older, it started around High School time. If he weren't family and were 40 years old and/or younger, I'd punch him the fuck out.

He talks to my grandmom like shit even though she's the one who provides everything for him. EVERYTHING. He does NOTHING but sit on his fat fucking ass all day long and whine, and everyone has to do everything for him. He cannot provide for himself whatsoever, he's a fucking space-eater. He doesn't provide any money outside of retirement checks. Nothing. He's absolutely nothing, of no value whatsoever to me in any way. He's not dead to me, as he's family, but he's not someone I really consider apart of my life in any way. He's more of a burden on my life than an actual presence in my life, and I honestly feel like I'm about to have an ulcer because I want to fucking scream but my grandmother won't let me because she gets fucking emotional and bullshit when I step in. She refuses to let me talk and I fucking hate it, because it's like I'm 5 years old. She's gotta let me be a man and step in, but she gets sentimental seeing her husband and her grandson fight. It sucks.

This is why I'm getting my own place and luckily plans for me are good to move by the time fall starts. I was crashing with a friend for a long while when I had my job and school was a little more busy but the past 6 months I've had to take care of my grandpop after he left the hospital when he fell getting into the shower at their house and broke his ankle/leg. It's fucking suffocating my life at this point and I fall into a lazy trap staying here. Time for me to get restarted in my life.

Race relations in America are still a severe problem. This past week seven black youth hunt down and beat a 15 year old child Mexican-decent while he was walking home from school. The 15 year old did not associate with any of his attackers directly; the attackers ranged in age from 13 to 16 years old. All of these CHILDREN are collateral damage, in a society that fosters HATRED and mistrust towards anyone and everyone who is different. George Zimmerman kills black teenager Trayvon Martin and calls him a coon, solely because he's wearing a hoodie. Conservatives stand up for Mr. Zimmerman on the basis of a stand-your-ground law that sanctions vigilante justice instead of real justice. People have asked me if I am anti-religion. I'm not, but social conservatism is a disease that has sickened the minds and society of our world, and WE are all damaged because of it, in one way or another. Organized religion is at the forefront of this push against the progression of a secular, free world. And that's something I can never forget nor forgive.

I hated it for the longest time and wanted people to call me my middle name, Tony (actually, my middle name is Anthony, but I thought Tony sounded cooler :lol) But I've grown out of that phase. I'm glad you love the name, I've gotten that a lot recently and it makes me appreciate my name and not feel self-conscious about it.

People need to be careful about what type of people they are picking up for a night of sex and pleasure. What people conceivably do for fun can end up being a nightmare very quickly. There have been numerous stories recently of older gay men especially being taken advantage of, physically, sexually, being robbed, and even being killed, by hustlers who they are picking up from clubs, picking up from off the street, or renting a hooker for the night off the web. A lot of these hustlers are ex-cons, a whole lot of them are gay-for-pay or closeted. And almost all of them are after the money in the pockets of these older gays, who tend to be very rich. These hustlers see gay men as weak and easy targets and know that gay men, sadly, tend to be an easy lay compared to women. They see these older gays as very easily taken advantage of and they know that they won't be able to fight back. So, what do all of us need to do, gay and straight, young and old?
That's very true, but it's not a new thing at all, unfortunately. I don't know how familiar you are with homosexuality's history, but this has been happening since before Ancient Greek times. It's not really a sexual orientation issue, really, just your general "people taking advantage of one another because they can" issue. :(

Teen Kearian Gertz Booted From Pageant Over Gay Marriage Support
zB7UuXCk_p4

http://www.ontopmag.com/article.aspx?id=11438&MediaType=1&Category=26
California high school student Kearian Gertz was booted from a pageant for declaring that he hopes gay marriage is legalized in the next 10 years.

Assistant Principal Joe Abell on Tuesday reportedly pulled Gertz from the competition for senior male students at Fullerton Union High School, KTLA-TV reported.

During the Mr. Fullerton Pageant's question and answer period, Gertz was asked where he saw himself in 10 years.

“I just wanted to be able to sit on the couch by the person I love and happily proclaim that we're married,” Gertz told the station. “Hopefully, 10 years from now I'll be able to do that if gay marriage is legal.”

Abell questioned Gertz as he came off the stage.

“'Why would you say something like that?'” Gertz said Abell asked him before telling him he was disqualified.

Some students protested the decision with letters asking Abell, “Where do you see yourself in 10 years?”

Fullerton Joint Union High School District Superintendent George Giokaris said in a statement that Gertz had not violated any school rules.

“The district has concluded that the matter was not handled appropriately by the assistant principal,” Giokaris said. “The district believes that the matter should have been handled privately with the student by the assistant principal.”

On Wednesday, Abell apologized publicly over the school's public-address system.

We've now gotten to the point where gay people are essentially being killed, COMPLETELY shutdown in any sort of public context, being beaten, being humiliated if we dare speak out in any way against the discrimination we face, if we dare live as openly gay. We're living in a society that is so fearful of us it shuts down all conversation that is in any way gay-accepting in nature. We need to speak out louder. We need to fight harder. We need to be OUT even more without inhibition and live our lives as we see fit. That is the only way we will win. We need to educate, we need to fight, fight with love, fight with brainpower, fight with the tools we have in our disposal that do not include ignorance and violence-----but fight regardless. Our BASIC livelihoods depend on it. If you're staying on the sidelines pretending this doesn't exist in 2012, you're blind to the reality we're living in. If you're an ally and support the gay community, FIGHT with us, fight FOR us, because we need you, more than ever.

This is what happens when people backlash against something they see as a threat. First they shut you down vocally. Then when you speak out louder, they beat you down physically. It's going to get a lot worse before it gets better. But we're strong. We're tough and we're proving it. We are a powerful group. Bigots who think they can simply do whatever they please against our community and get away with it have another thing come.

These people CRY AND WHINE about freedom of speech and how it's being taken from them. About society being PC. About how we're losing our morals as a society. Time to hit them where it hurts, with a strong dose of reality smacking them upside the head. I DO NOT tolerate these people and WILL NOT tolerate them. Time to play nice has ended. This is a culture war. Time to get your uniforms on and fight for the betterment of our world.

LGBTQ people can be denied housing, transportation, employment and be fired solely for being gay without federal protection in the United States of America in 2012. Did anyone know that? Fight for ENDA and do your part to protect all citizens from discrimination. It's Easter weekend. Even if you're not religious, let's show the bigots, who tend to flaunt the fact they're believers (believers of their own bullshit, mind you) what being moral and treating others the way you want to be treated is truly about.

Dark Green States that prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. (16 states and D.C.)

Light Green States that prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation alone. (5 states)

In 29 states, it’s still legal to fire
someone solely because they’re lesbian, gay, or bisexual; in 34 states it is legal to fire someone solely for being transgender.

Thousands of hardworking lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans have lost their livelihoods simply because of who they are. And millions more go to work every day facing that threat.

It's time to ban workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.

Just an indication that the discrimination is more than about marriage, and the discrimination IS NOT about religion and IS NOT about protecting marriage or protecting children from gays. This is ALL about homophobia. And it's time we fight back and put an end to this shit, once and for all.

It's time to stop allowing RACISTS to treat minorities as animals and then question why minority children, who are deprived of family figures and surrounded by crime while growing up in poverty, eventually end up committing crimes themselves, and holding hostilities towards society.

It's time to stop sexist trash from hiring women for solely quota reasons while blatantly giving them lower-ranking jobs for lesser-pay.

It's time to put a stop to it all. It's 2012, and this shit is STILL going on? I want to cry, every day. I want to cry, I do cry, but I fight through the tears and fight because it's the only way anything will ever get done. The lack of respect and lack of humanity is so appalling, but we have to keep fighting. Not just for yourself, but for our youngest and brightest. Because that's who this is really about. I will not allow the younger/youngest generations grow up in this filth. They deserve so much better. And so do we.

That's very true, but it's not a new thing at all, unfortunately. I don't know how familiar you are with homosexuality's history, but this has been happening since before Ancient Greek times. It's not really a sexual orientation issue, really, just your general "people taking advantage of one another because they can" issue. :(I am familiar with the history, yeah, it's always happened sadly. Although before it would be older guys taking advantage of younger guys, or guys with money taking advantage of poorer, socially-lower class men. These days it's the opposite. Really, it all comes down to homosexuality being too taboo and closeted, IMO. Things like this would be avoided if these older gays would actually feel the ability and freedom to be out without discrimination (and wouldn't be as damaged from that homophobia which leads them to not be out), and openly gay within the gay community and not rejected once they're over 35.

That's true, a lot of the in-culture conflict comes from the frustration of not being accepted by the larger environment, so some of that anger seeps inward rather that outward. I always thought it was quite sad. :sad:

I think that's a bit of a stereotype. One of the things I like about modern gay culture is the respect that you can see given to diversity. You don't see hetero culture glorifying big hairy 50yearolds. :p

Btw, have you ever been involved, volunteered or something, in any LGBT rights groups or organizations? You seem quite passionate about the cause and it'd be a shame to let your enthusiasm go by unused. :)

I've done volunteer work when younger(though in other fields) and it can be a very fulfilling experience.

Oh, and today was National Day of Silence day! I participated, which is why I wasn't on this website for several hours. Day of Silence day is basically a day where students across schools and adults across America (and the world) refrain from talking, or at least attempt to, as a symbol of solidarity towards LGBTQ teens and teens among all at-risk groups who are bullied for who they are and do not have a voice, and are scared to speak out against what is happening to them. I didn't speak, didn't use the computer, I just went outside, collected my thoughts, and thought about many things. The progress we've made, and the progress that has to continue to be made.

With all that said, I'm starting to grow a real strong bias against social conservatives. I'm tired of hearing the bullshit that comes out of states like Michigan, Ohio, Mississippi, Arizona. I'm tired of the same people and same areas doing the same shit over and over while everyone around them is progressing. All places have their bad apples, but some people/places simply aren't progressing, and actually refuse to and are regressing in defiance. Hate crimes are statistically WAY down in Los Angeles, New York, Seattle for instance, yet way up in states like Texas and Florida. There are only about 10 states where I could actually live as gay and basically feel somewhat secure in my existence and that isn't the way America is supposed to be. And being mixed, that 10 number boosts up to maybe 15-20. It's complete bullshit.

People wonder why bullies are bullies. Bullying is usually a sign of sociopathic behavior, or insecurity/weakness. The hardcore bullies tend to be sociopaths, who crave power and attention. The followers tend to be weak kids who are desperate to fit in. Hardcore bullies usually end up being bullies/douchebags when they grow up. That's why anti-bullying messages have no affect on hardcore bullies. It helps the victims of bullying feel support, it gives actual sane children/teens an avenue to stick up for those who are bullied and feel good about themselves. But hardcore bullies are not mentally nor emotionally healthy, and more direct, severe measures need to be taken with these children. They actually need to be helped with therapy as to why they think and behave the way they do, and their parents need to be notified about their bullying.

The PARENTS of these bullies, sometimes they're in the picture and simply have no control, yet often times, they are not in the picture at all and have no idea their children are monsters. Parents these days want to be friends with their child instead of actually parenting their kids. Largely due to social media. It's really a shame. Don't get me started on the teachers and principals in schools who will TEAM with the bullies and pick on the less popular, solely to look cool and be part of the "in" group at school. So their social cred is enhanced. There are numerous cases of teachers picking on kids themselves, and behaving in discriminatory manners. That is when shit hits the fan.

I'm a fan of lawsuits in cases like this. If someone attempts to harass you, sue them. If someone is bullying you, have your parents threaten a lawsuit against their parents of the bully and the school for not stepping in. If you are dealing with workplace bullying, and nothing is done about it, sue. Sue, sue, sue. Hit people where it hurts. Because bullies do not have empathy for others and feed off of others' pain and weakness, like a sociopath would. Take something they care about away from them, and take the reigns of your life.

No, what they need to do is have the shit beaten out of them by their parents, like they did in the good old days. Therapy is bullshit and merely a modern PC way to coddle these future sociopaths and criminals.

I partially agree that the parents need to step in and handle business, but the fact is that the bullies have no respect for their parents. And the parents either willingly ignore the signs their child is a sociopath, or don't care. Often times, the parents themselves as sociopaths. So, the reality is, what is needed is therapy, because these kids can be saved. These bullies can be saved, but tough love and hard knocks are needed. Police intervention is needed. These kids can be scared straight by realizing if they continue their bullying behavior, they will end up in juvy or in prison. The key to prevent bullying is to take the power away from bullies.

Men who are so insecure and so desperate to flaunt their power and gain control over other individuals, and feel they validate their manhood by beating up defenseless gay men in horrendous gay bashings prove just how far some people will go to prove to themselves they are what they never will be. Same with men who beat up on women. And abuse the women they're in relationships with, say they love, but treat like servants. Men who beat up on people who they know cannot fight back. Men who attack others who do absolutely nothing to them, just to get their rocks off. That type of hyper-masculinity, over-aggression, the hostility and irrational anger. All signs of lack of education and severe internalized emotional schism. It's all about control. Most men are desperate for control. It's also why men tend to be more conservative politically. Men are desperate for power, and when they feel AT ALL under any sort of threat, these feral individuals attack.

Of course, am I talking about all men? Absolutely not. Not even a majority. But it's far too many. Too many men are concerned with their masculine appearance, both to themselves and others, instead of focusing on gaining depth and being a good person. Men are let off the hook for not having healthy emotional responses, because men are supposed to be "strong", as if being emotionally vacant is a sign of toughness. Men have to act like humans. We're not robots. Stop acting as if you/we are. Stop being so hardened, stop allowing yourselves to be ignorant and challenge yourselves to be better.

I keep thinking in my head, is it wrong of me to actually enjoy sex, whether it be discussing about it or visually, whatever, is it OK to be a whore, and be a gay rights advocate? Is it OK for me to enjoy myself and have fun when others are struggling to survive? I know it sounds fucked up but I feel guilty a lot of the time. Like, how can I just go out and desire and fuck with so many guys (at least when I was-----my sex life has totally dried up :o) yet act as if I can be someone who talks about gay rights and woman rights and morality and decency. I sometimes feel guilty for having fun, like I should be 100% business 100% of the time. It makes me feel confused, really, and depressed in a way.

Way to generalize. Most real men aren't like that. Most real men have a natural urge to protect their women not abuse them. Abusing your spouse/girlfriend is disgusting and I am not surprised you want to label straight men as abusers of power. You seem to hate normal men and try to bring negative stereotypes out in full when you bring out your random whine posts. To you all of us are abusers, gay bashers and power crazed lunatics. In reality, most straight men are decent blokes who just want a good woman to care for them. We do not hate gays either. We just don't appreciate them sticking their sexuality into our face in every conversation and woe-is-me attitude.

Men are let off the hook for not having healthy emotional responses, because men are supposed to be "strong", as if being emotionally vacant is a sign of toughness. Men have to act like humans. We're not robots. Stop acting as if you/we are. Stop being so hardened, stop allowing yourselves to be ignorant and challenge yourselves to be better.

Behaving like an emotional pansy isn't right. Men are made to protect women who are naturally weaker and more emotional and seek protection from us. Men shouldn't be weak because that gives us a negative image. Women naturally want to be coddled and protected and appriciate a strong male who can do that. We are their wall, someone who is infallible and indestructible. We are their "knights in shining armor" so to speak. Showing emotional vulnerability is just not male thing to do. I don't expect you to understand this.

I have the same opinion as Dee, let the boy preach if he's feelin it. ;):angel:

No, it was totally bad, unfortunately. :sobbing: Thanks for asking, though. :hug:
But no furniture, luckily. I don't like to accumulate stuff, it just weighs you down while you're, you know, young and want to travel and live in different places and so on. Have you moved often in your life, yourself?I moved on my 5th birthday from NYC to Richmond, VA. I remember everything about it, and then yes, we moved again from the Southside of Richmond to the West End. So my family and I have moved a few times, yeah. You always end up getting attached to whatever residence you live in when you start establishing yourself there and making it your home, so it's always sucky to move, the one positive I can say is that the house my family owns now is in a great area, low crime, and with good neighbors. Sorry to hear about your bad moving experience, I won't ask for details :unsure:

I am totally in agreement about not accumulating too many things because you end up not really using/needing these things in the long run and then you have to decide how to get rid of these items when you don't want them. Especially if you're a traveler, then you have to worry about shipping these items if you want to keep them, selling them off if you don't, if you're getting full value back for these items if you sell them. Too much of a hassle :o

It's all part of the fun. :pThat's what I think too! But what's fun for me I guess is a trainwreck in the eyes of others :lol:

Better to acknowledge your feelings than bottle them up, in the long run. :shrug: Though conflict management is a very valuable skill in life, no doubt.Well, IRL, I would fuck up the people on here who deserve it (the people who attack my sexuality, for instance), but since this is a computer forum, it's not necessary to me. It doesn't affect me enough to get upset about because it's something I can directly control. And in this case, I directly control my own destiny by ignoring pigs like Topspindoctor (and yes, I literally have his ass on ignore, so I have zero clue of what he said above this post :lol:)

Why the hate for Lorenzi, Odesnik and Kukushkin?
They're horrible tennis players :no:

Also, Kukushkin is full of antics and Odesnik is verbally abusive towards ball kids.

That's true, a lot of the in-culture conflict comes from the frustration of not being accepted by the larger environment, so some of that anger seeps inward rather that outward. I always thought it was quite sad. :sad:It is sad...........it's a product of self-hatred, but how does one not start to hold some internalized hostility or take in some of what thrown at them in regards to how damning being part of the gay community is, when these messages are constantly pushed by greater society? Even the strongest people break down to this sort of pressure and emotional abuse. It's easy for younger gays/bisexuals/gay4pay guys/etc., who tend not to have quite as much baggage surrounding their sexuality, to basically blackmail older gay guys, hold their internalized homophobia above their heads. They know that the last thing these men want to do is be outed, and that they will do things they wouldn't normally, just in an effort to maintain a heterosexual social identification.

The whole sex trade industry in general is an extremely shady deal. It's something I steer clear from.

You don't see hetero culture glorifying big hairy 50yearolds. :pWell, that's totally true, I can't lie :lol:

I don't think the ageism thing is a complete stereotype but you're actually right that it's overblown a bit. I guess I get caught up sometimes in thinking all gay men are overly superficial and materialistic. I mean, we're not all shallow and vain. I should give us more credit!

Btw, have you ever been involved, volunteered or something, in any LGBT rights groups or organizations? You seem quite passionate about the cause and it'd be a shame to let your enthusiasm go by unused. :)Yes I actually have/do work in my cities' gay community center. I've worked with my cities' diversity thrift store too, where the funds go to the gay community center. But I want to do more, I want to make it national. I think I would make the perfect voice for the gay community. I know that there would be a lot of sacrifices I would be forced to make, a lot of pain I would have to endure, but I'm so totally ready to fight. It's always great to give back, I also have worked at my cities' homeless shelter where we play games like bingo. I've done church functions, like summer camps for kids. Treating others the way you want to be treated goes a long way. And I feel better about myself when I know I'm making a difference in the life of someone else and making them happy.

Um, so-so. I sorta like the Joni Mitchell feel part of the time, but the chorus is too, idk, neoNickleback? So rude of me. :oNo, hun, the chorus is SO Nickleback and Nickleback is AWFUL :o So basically, yeah, I cannot like this song, especially the annoying "na na na" shit :lol:


What kinda music have you been into lately?
Also, cliche question :lol:, but how did you like Gaga's last album and what's your favourite off it?I've been listening to a ton of Maroon 5 recently, a lot of Jack Johnson, and basically random songs beyond that. And of course, a lot of Gaga. I think Gaga has fallen off a bit, I didn't love her latest album like her first one. She's become a little extra :p

But I do like Born This Way, Judas, Bloody Mary, Bad Kids, and Scheibe.

There is no such thing as "a real man", much like there is no such thing as "a real woman". Both terms are socially arcane and harmful. Every person is different and wants different things in life and from other people, and while there are women who will rely on a man to fight their battles for them, this is not the standard in modern society, nor is it emotionally, mentally, or socially healthy.
And as for the weaker, well. I bet you'd get quite a beatdown from, say, Serena Williams or Amy Dumas for that. I don't expect you to understand this. :hug:

Also, Kukushkin is full of antics and Odesnik is verbally abusive towards ball kids. He is? That is just the worst. I can't stand it when players do that. Like, it's a kid, who is likely volunteering for this, and you're gonna shout at them like that? And that throwing towels around bs... :rolleyes: You're an elite athlete with perfect hand-eye co-ordination and yet you can't take the half a second to look behind you to see that you're throwing a sweaty, bacteria-infested towel into a kid's hands, not on their face??

Though you have to think that there's a sort of a self-destructive subconscious desire to be out and free of the pressure of hiding that some of the older men have when engaging in some of the shadier hookups. You know, the whole danger and truth being two sides of the same mirror deal. Or something. :unsure:

But I do like Born This Way, Judas, Bloody Mary, Bad Kids, and Scheibe.I am, still, so confused with how I feel about the direction she's taking. On the one hand, I do love pretentious Gaga, that is so my thing :lol:, on the other, she's a lot less fun and when she misses, she misses.
That yellow/tan outfit she was into for BTW was so blah, and bringing back 90s Versace... no thank you. And refering to an entire continent of women as "cholas"... :facepalm: Not here for that. Bad Gaga.
But, still, like you say, I'd never hate, she has good ideas and a strong voice and I like the overall thing so... Look forward to the next one.

Bloody Mary and Government Hooker were my favourites, should have been singles! The video for BM would have been epic. :sad: You and I and Marry the Night, so boring imo.

Yes, there are such concepts. It's not something that is political or influenced by society. It's something that is encoded into our genes from the ancient days and people keep going against it. Men are physically superior, easy as that. Women are mothers, wives and vulnerable flowers, which we, men, must protect and nurture. I have no interest in women who are basically men, but with a vagina. I don't care for "modern corporate business woman image" that feminists try to promote these days. It's all wrong. Hiding behind "modern society standard" is stupid, because modern society is degraded and rotten beyond belief. Being brainwashed by lunatics who suggest women should work in construction, fight in wars and do the heavy lifting is both unpragmatic and counterproductive.

Women dont know what they are anymore, so they make series like Sex and the City hehe.

I think every women should try to do everything they want to do, but the genders should be treated with the inequality they deserve. Or maybe not?

In Brazil for example theres a law against men that spank their wife and theres not a law for the oppsoite. So we arrive to the point we are questioning wheter this law is inconstitutional because it only protects women, and not men, against domestic violence.

Video: Amendment 1 pastor gives parents 'special dispensation' to use violence against LGBT kids!!!

by Jeremy Hooper

"Crack that wrist!"

"Give 'em a good punch!"

"Vote for Amendment 1!"


Those sentiments from Pastor Sean Harris, speaking during this past weekend's "Marriage Sunday" (a church effort put together by Vote For Marriage NC, the campaign to ban same-sex marriage in the Tar Heel State constitution):

NKDWdfTkr-o

TRANSCRIPT: "So your little son starts to act a little girlish when he is four years old and instead of squashing that like a cockroach and saying, “Man up, son, get that dress off you and get outside and dig a ditch, because that is what boys do,” you get out the camera and you start taking pictures of Johnny acting like a female and then you upload it to YouTube and everybody laughs about it and the next thing you know, this dude, this kid is acting out childhood fantasies that should have been squashed.
Can I make it any clearer? Dads, the second you see your son dropping the limp wrist, you walk over there and crack that wrist. Man up. Give him a good punch. Ok? You are not going to act like that. You were made by God to be a male and you are going to be a male. And when your daughter starts acting to Butch you reign her in. And you say, “Oh, no, sweetheart. You can play sports. Play them to the glory of God. But sometimes you are going to act like a girl and walk like a girl and talk like a girl and smell like a girl and that means you are going to be beautiful. You are going to be attractive. You are going to dress yourself up.”
You say, “Can I take charge like that as a parent?”
Yeah, you can. You are authorized. I just gave you a special dispensation this morning to do that."

Uhm—"Praise Jesus"?

Sex and the City is an American television comedy-drama series created by Darren Star and produced by HBO. Broadcast from 1998 until 2004, the original run of the show had a total of ninety-four episodes. Throughout its six-year run, the show received contributions from various producers, writers and directors, perhaps most significantly from Michael Patrick King.

The book series was written by a woman but the television show was created by, produced, written and directed largely by men.

You may disagree with me and that's fine, but can you at least give reasoning? Society must determine one's role according to ability, not according to what some perception of fairness dictates. If you think me as misogynist and woman hater - you couldn't be more wrong. In fact I would immediately execute all rapists if it were up to me. I would legalize abortion all over the world. The thing I disagree with is role distortion and some women feeling the need to encroach upon roles which are typically male dominated just for the sake of equality. Now I have no problem if a woman is born with male brain and therefore seeks the same role as her male counterpart - however I do have a problem with women being where they are not supposed to be because the society deems they are equal to men. They are not. Men are better than women at some things. Women are better than men at other things. As soon as people understand this, the world will be a better, more pragmatic place.

Oxi I didnt say that Sex an the City is offensive to men, I just said its a signal of the new times.
I was mostly exxagerating when I said women dont know what they are anymore, but at least they are trying to discover what are their position in the society as mothers, workers and lovers. You cant deny there isnt some kind of enormous difference from different times. Now women delay their love life or even they marriages to try to get a better work or improve professionally, when in the past they used to have their husbands. I am not saying this is bad, but it can create a big conflict inside women and frustrations when they have new demands for their love life.
What kind of woman you want to be? Miranda who loves sex but just cant seem to find someone to fall in love? Carrie which have a big crush to a man that knows that post-modern times ask for less feeling and more $? Or should they go back to their Charlotte times, being romantical and loving marriages?
Its a valid questioning when there are more options there are more time to question yourself and we would be naive to say that every woman is, not happy it isnt the word, but " hooked" to this condition.

You know I used to have a girlfriend that was 4 years older than me and she was a lawyer, very hard working and such. I was too young to marry an from out of nowhere this girl totally changed her attitude towards life from a " I wanna enjoy life and get money and study and grow on my career" to " I wanna have a family and kids". What happened? She dumped me , got a new boyfriend and got pregnant in less than 4 months. Good for her, but tell me there arent conflicts inside her head, and tell me she kinda of have the mental structure to raise a child and a family from out of nowhere just because she thought she was getting very old. :p

I'm about to go to sleep and I'm daydreaming about the guys at the church I go to. I will NEVER forget the looks I got the last time I went there. That was when I was looking the best I've ever looked. One guy, who I've known since young, he was the leader of one of my Sunday school classes, gave me one of the most blatant check-outs I've ever gotten. He was like "you're looking really good" and I said thanks, and then he literally was eyeing me up and down for 3 seconds. That was really major. This other guy, he always kept hugging me, like he wanted to touch me. He was extremely touchy-feely.

Then this other man, who I think is pretty cute and I'm sort of shy about it because, I mean, this is fucking church after all, has been ALL over me at several points, to the point my grandmom pointed it out. He would intentionally come over to me and he was really beaming, his eyes and his smile, like really excited to see me, which is sexy. The most blatant situation there was when he literally grabbed my chest for like 2-3 seconds. Like, touched it, and we weren't even hugging, we were conversing and he put his hand on me in a warm sort of way. And I was like, dying on the inside of wanting to basically wanting to take it to the next level. But I didn't.

None of this even compares to this one hot as HELL man who I used to be bros with, he nicknamed me Franchise, and we were very very close, like best bros, we would chill, we would talk about serious shit, played basketball together, just were great friends. I told him that I worked as a bartender at a mixed bar and he almost blatantly asked if I were gay, which I just laughed about. I didn't even say no, I just chuckled. One time he was getting out of the shower, I was like 15, and I was STUCK on his body. I was trying not to look, but I flat out couldn't until I basically forced my head away, somewhat awkwardly. That was during a church field trip to the mountains. All he had was a towel over his crotch. That was so amazing. He moved to North Carolina a few years ago. In case you didn't know by now, I had and still have an extreme crush, and the guy is HOT. He is like a 9.5, no joke. Body, face, hair. I don't think he's gay, but what I would do for a night of that.

Oh, and lastly, this one annoying ass kid ALWAYS used to pick on me, but I literally found out days ago that he's openly gay. Like, he would always tease me about shit, horseplay, it wasn't too serious, but it was like a girl who liked a boy, but was embarrassed about it so she teased the boy she liked. I always suspected he was gay, way, way back, like when I was early teens. He's a few years younger than me and goes to Radford University, which is out in the middle of nowhere. I'd probably fuck him if I wanted to take that opportunity.

I could probably have sex with at least half of the guys at the church. But that's sort of why I hate church and organized religion. Because it's repressive bullshit yet at the same time, it's fucking guys being guys. Guys are going to be guys regardless of the bullshit morality codes you present to them. Guys want to fuck. So I think people need to do what's natural to them instead of worrying about what God this, Jesus that, will say. Do you, be a good person, and everything will turn out fine in the end, whatever happens happens.

Amendment One polling is tomorrow. Everyone in North Carolina, or if you have friends from the state, please do EVERYTHING in your power to get your family and friends out to vote NO on this hateful bill that will take away thousands of legal rights from same-sex and opposite-sex non-married couples. This is a critical moment in the history of the Southern United States and gay rights in general. We have to prove to the country and world that the South isn't a bigoted wasteland. Please do your part to ensure as many votes of NO on Amendment One as possible.

Filo, why do you watch so much (crappy) tennis?

You watch as much of it as I do and I make a living trading (live betting) on the sport..... I find it hard to comprehend anyone sitting through the same for pure enjoyment.

Not to hijack this thread but how do you do overall with live betting? It's something that I think about when I'm watching tennis, especially when I subject myself to the WTA. I swear I would have made some nice money over the years live betting on the Williams sisters in the slams. Especially in their primes, I would always think how they were never going to lose when down a set and a break or two. And they usually didn't.

I love the sport. And I love the unpredictability of watching lower ranked players. I find their matches more interesting 80% of the time because there is usually twists and turns and drama. Plus because you can learn about so many different and new players beyond the top guns.

It's gonna be tough. But we're in it to win it and I know we can if we get the our people out to vote.

I've done very well with it (if I kept up what I've done on it the last few years I could retire by the time I'm 30) mainly trading on a betting exchange (betfair) which I understand isn't available to US customers and won't be any time soon, I've used bookmakers in the past (mainly for prematch betting) but they are quick to kill sharp accounts.

The opportunities are there, certainly, at all levels. I tend to do better on the obscure/mediocre stuff than the big names though.

Oh and I don't bet on WTA......yet.

I trade on all the matches which means I have complete control over my bet/trading position point to point game to game and can get out of my bet for a profit or loss whenever I think it's an appropriate time. Having this element of control means that my anger level is at least manageable (unless I take on lots of huge value high volatility bets and get a run of missed opportunities which results in me wanted to smash something).

Some paranoia is justified, but 90% of it is just mugs whining at their money going down the toilet.

Retiring by 30 sounds great, but this doesn't seem like the kind of way to make a living that you need to retire from that early :lol:

And yeah, I understand the illegality of it in the US, which is why I would be living in Europe if I ever actually did it.

Also, at which age did you start betting full time at to be so good at 23? Just curious

You say that but.....well the obstacles are already being put in place to make my life difficult already, betfair are billing me 50% 'premium charge' commission on my weekly profits, so pretty much top end UK tax rates.

Betting profits are non taxable in the UK so betfair figure they can screw customers at source as they have total market dominance.

Plus, the hours I do are a huge grind and I think they always will be due to my personality and style of betting, and after a few more years I think I'll be bored, weary and need a change.

My basic plan is to make as much out of it while I'm young, able to work ridiculous hours and free of major responsibilities, then when I make enough do something else.

Started betting when I was at uni (anything to avoid genuinely working) at 19, after some ups and downs and some time to reflect I decided to do it seriously as I knew with the right mental approach I could make a lot of money. I've pretty much doubled my profits each year for the last 3 and am on course to do the same this year. I'll be honest though and say I've sacrificed having a 'normal' life of someone my age in order to put the time in I do.

Amendment One will take away social security benefits, health care benefits, will take away domestic violence benefits, adoption benefits, and much more, from ALL unmarried couples in the state of North Carolina. It is an absolute must for it to fail, this is literally, for many couples, a do or die situation.

America is a Christian conservative country. Social conservatism is still extremely ripe. It's sadly ripe in Australia too although Australia is a little bit beyond the US on this issue. But traditional Victorian beliefs are what Australia was founded on and it takes a LONG time to wipe away these attitudes and progress forward. People are brainwashed, socially brainwashed, and cannot think on their own.

It's pathetic, it's an embarrassment, but it's life as a gay person in 2012. Everything is very tenuous.

This is great for both gay and straight kids and teens, having not only someone to look up to to send a message of acceptance, but also the message that you're welcome on the pitch regardless of the fact you're gay, we embrace you as our fans and people who we respect and accept as who you are. It's things like that which will create change. Makes me happy to see :)

Athletic Club says No To Homophobia

This is a campaign made by the Biscayan Government with Athletic Club in the name of stopping homophobia, May 17th being the International Day against Homophobia and Discrimination.

It's a huge gesture since Athletic is probably the biggest institution in the region and the one that gets more publicity and advertisement, I love that this wasn't done by just anyone but by the Captains and the President.

Athletic is also hosting sessions called "Thinking Football" where they have discussed homophobia as well:

http://www.athletic-club.net/web/main.asp?a=0&b=1&c=2&d=1000&berria=11634&idi=2

Thinking Football: Football and Equality

Next February 13th the second session of the “Thinking Football” conference series will be held at the BBK Hall (Gran Vía 19)

Under the title” Football and Equality”, the role football plays in the social struggle against sexism, racism or homophobia will be discussed.

In order to formulate these matters the following personalities will attend the conference: Mr. John Amaechi OBE (former NBA player and psychologist, recently honoured OBE (Official of The British Empire) for his struggle against homophobia in sport), Mr Hans Bonde(Danish writer expert in Gender and Sport topics) and Miss Nerea Onaindia(Former Athletic club player).The committee will be moderated by Mr Ibon Zubiaur (Doctor of Philosophy and principal of the Cervantes Institute in Munich)

The conference will be held at 19:00 hrs with free admission. The organization will provide with simultaneous interpretation devices, previous ID card deposit.

AWESOME KID WON'T STAND FOR WESTBORO'S BIGOTRY
Nine-Year-Old Stands Up to Westboro Baptist Church with One-Boy Counter-Protest

When nine-year-old Josef Miles spotted members of Fred Phelps' Westboro Baptist Church doing their hate-mongering thing on the Washburn University campus in Topeka, he asked his mother, Patty Akrouche, if he could stage a small counter-protest to their message of intolerance.

With just a pencil and small notebook in hand, Josef took on the bigots with a succinct yet poignant proclamation: "God Hates No One."

"Those people are scary but he stood strong, was respectful and stood by his convictions," Akrouche wrote on her Facebook page. "He will be a good man, I have no doubt."

Straight guys are actually usually extremely easy since most of them are generally luckless with women, or at least they do get the action they want regularly. Women make you work for it, and guys want to take it. What's sort of ironic and tragic at the same time, is that the homophobic-posturing straight guys are the easiest to fuck and usually they're the ones who make moves on guys. I cannot COUNT the stories I've read of guys who go out of their way to talk about how straight they are, fuck with dudes on the DL. I've been with a few but I've never been into those types of guys that much. I'd find it degrading.

I know why he doesn't, because he doesn't want to risk himself as an openly gay man in Middle Eastern countries where he travels often, and he wants the focus on be on his journalism. But I feel that Anderson coming out would be huge for our community as he would be the perfect representative and do a lot in terms of having a professional individual who is as successful as him be the role model young gay teens can look up to, and straights can respect. It's sad we live in a world where people do not feel like they can be out without some sort of damage to their lives. We have a lot of work left to be done.
