I hear singles complain about the hardships of dating and being lonely. They will blame everybody else for not living up to their expectations, but the reality is that they have closed themselves off to many possibilities by failing to be flexible with their preferences. Newsflash! This is the type of B.S that will keep you single!
A new study suggests that a guy's "gayve-away" may have less to do with a limp wrist, a light pair of loafers and a penchant for the color pink — and more to do with eyeball dilation. The study, scientific as it gets, measured the shrinking and growth of guy's pupil when he's exposed to various erotic, visual stimuli (re: porn).
It's Facebook official! After recognizing that many of its same-sex married couple members have been using the "married" icons meant for straight couples, Facebook has introduced new "married" timeline icons for gay users, one of which depicts two brides, the other, two grooms.
"The fact is, I'm gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud."
While June for many means weddings and the end of school, it also means IT'S GAY PRIDE MONTH. To most this would mean the lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender, queers, etc. will now hold their festivals of debauchery and sodomy on the streets of our fine country and influence the young ones to consider a life of moral shame. GET OVER IT!
The struggle for the gay community to be allowed the same rights as their heterosexual counterparts has been an uphill battle for hundreds of years. Although once upon a time in some corners of the world, homosexuality was viewed as normal behavior, it eventually evolved into something that society decided was evil, and those who were gay were denied basic human rights.
"Your dad is gay!" my friend spat out one day when we were in a fight. It was as if she were accusing me of something horrible. I was nine at the time. That night, I confronted my mother. "Heather said Dad is gay. He's not, right?" She paused—a long pause—that confirmed my worst fear. I felt betrayed. "How could my dad do this to me? And more importantly, what was I going to tell my friends?"
While celebs like Anna Paquin and Tom Hardy have embraced their bisexuality, a new study has cast light on the problem with the label itself. In research studies, bisexuals are commonly lumped with homosexuals. But this newest study, from researchers at Indiana University, uniquely targets women who identify themselves as bi, and just how that identification affects their overall health.
A long time ago I decided that the term "gaydar" was stupid and even somewhat offensive, but the fact of the matter is, I actually have gaydar and it's pretty damn accurate. It's so accurate that in high school I was able pinpoint the closeted gays, only to receive confirmation of just how right I was shortly after high school ... when they all came out.
From Pres. Barack Obama expressing his support for gay marriage in an interview with Robin Roberts of ABC's Good Morning America, to the struggle to repeal Proposition 8 in California, to the misleadingly-named Defense of Marriage Act being ruled unconstitutional, it's been a game-changing year in gay marriage rights.
In support of National Gay Pride Month – which is every June – Conscious Contraceptives is hosting a national contest in which participants can win an entire year's worth of condoms. You'll save money, contribute to a worthwhile organization and of course, keep yourself and your partner(s) safe.
A monumental ruling by the First Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston today declared the Defense of Marriage Act, the national law that declared marriage as a union "between one man and one woman," unconstitutional. The ruling sets the stage for DOMA to be taken up by the U.S. Supreme Court, which could lead to federal approval of same-sex marriages.
Alone, scared and confused. These words could be used to describe a lost child, but in this case, they’re not. They are the very real and daily feelings of a woman at midlife who is questioning her sexuality. For those of you who’ve been there, this may take you back to a place you’d rather not visit. For many others, it represents the beginning of a totally new and ultimately joyful journey—one of living the life you were meant to and being open and honest about yourself, maybe for the first time.
