GOP Gays Reject Trump Prez Bid

It was not surblog-trump-imageprising when the Log Cabin Republicans representing gay GOPers declined to endorse Donald Trump’s bid for the presidency this Saturday, Oct. 22, 2016.  Yes, there are organized gay Republicans, who came out of the political closet as conservatives in 1977.  Their press release rejecting Donald Trump opens by quoting Ronald Reagan’s famed line, “Trust but verify” as the best approach to the Grand Old Party’s grand old sexist, misogynist, racist candidate of the 2016 presidential campaign. Can we say that? Yes, as long as it’s spelled correctly.

The press release stated that the gay Republicans will wait and see how Trump stacks up on the gay front if he’s elected. We’re not seeing how that qualifies as “trust, but verify.” Sounds more like climb up on the embankment carrying a folding chair and mojito, then wait to see which way the logs roll in this avalanche of sticks, stones, old wood and mud. — Staff

Sex with The Natural Redhead

In March alone, she wrote about unwanted boners, sex while sleeping, and the speed that ejaculate shoots out of a human wiener. You might think that The L Magazine’s sex columnist Audrey Ference is a sex fiend–a sultry ginger vixen oozing sexuality onto the sidewalks of Soho.  That’s not the case at all. Continue reading

Is the “Boobquake” Worthy of a Stir?

ABC News is reporting that thousands of American women are channeling a Senior Iranian cleric’s statement last week about the relationship between boobs and earth quakes, as a challenge, and “testing” its validity by whipping out their push-up brows and hiking up their hemlines today.

She was not referring to male visual or behavioral response, but rather to the recent pattern of natural disasters. Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi said, “Many women who do not dress modestly … lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes.”

Jennifer McCreight, 22, set off today’s events by responding to Sedighi’s comment with the declaration of it’s “Time for a Boobquake” and on April 26 she will display as much cleavage as her v-neck will allow.  By the end of last week, more than 100,000 women proclaimed they would join in via their Facebook and Twitter pages and celebrate “womanhood.”

Is the “organized” revealing of breasts liberating or does it an example of stepping over a cultural boundary?

Sex With the Natural Redhead

How did I just discover this great blog on The L Magazine’s Web site by Audrey Ference?! She talks about everything I want to know.  And no, that is not an overstatement!  I’m serious–number of sexual partners, BJ’s with/out condoms, and  unwanted boners.  I mean seriously, have you ever heard of circumcised men who try to regrow foreskin or have it sewn on??  Well, I hadn’t. And my current addiction is reading her column. Check back later this week for a full interview with Audrey…

In our Sex and Gender reporting class a few weeks ago, our professor gave us the advice to dress for success in the workplace.  Don’t be sloppy.  Put yourself together. I was reminded of this lesson when I read that today’s Idea of the Day on is along the same vein, except it emphasizes fashion in every aspect of life, not just on the job.  Having recently hopped into the career world, I do agree that clothes are extremely important.  I have been judging people in the office left and right based on their appearance.  (Feel free to judge me for that.)  In New York, it’s tough not to feel a little pressure to look beautiful 24/7, as super-models and their emaciated wannabe’s are among us, trekking down the sidewalk just like JoSchmo and his messy-haired girlfriend.  And the Times is reinforcing this sentiment.  I have to say, though, that at 7:30 am when I fall out of bed to walk my dog in my glasses and slippers, I’m not on the prowl to impress the garbage man, my mut, or even that early-bird sexy next-door neighbor.  Yeah, “our clothes are our identity”–but is that really possible ALL THE TIME? Throw me a bone here (I’ll give it to my dog), and take off some of the immense pressure that comes from every direction in life.  You don’t have to look beautiful all the time.  As long as you know not to bring it to the office, we’re all allowed a day in baggy pants and a sweatshirt.  Clothes don’t make the person. They make a persona.
