All the Gay Content on TikTok; Ryan Field Books

 All the Gay Content on TikTok

I love TikTok and I check it out all the time. And I do see a good deal of gay content, and it's usually sexually suggestive gay content from straight men, too. At least they appear to be straight. You really can't be certain anymore. 

So are they using quasi gay content to get hits? I'm really not sure. Maybe this generation of young people doesn't have the boundaries that previous generations have had...or as they put it: "an era of declining cultural homophobia." 

But as racy as the video is, fans are under no pretense that the two are in the throes of gay puppy love. Mr. Robinson and Mr. Finney identify as heterosexual, but as some TikTok influencers have discovered, man-on-man action is a surefire way to generate traffic. 

Here's more.  They have the video up and you can see it. If you know nothing about TikTok this is a great read because it's so spot on. This is exactly what I see all the time myself on TikTok. This kind of thing and someone's grandmother cooking Italian food. It's interesting.

Poll Shows 45% Queer Men Are Backing Trump; Ryan Field Books

Poll Shows 45% Queer Men Are Backing Trump

This story is one of the reasons why I never get political here on this web site. Nowadays it's hard to know who is supporting any given candidate and I don't want to insult any of my readers with partisan rhetoric. My job is to write fiction, not preach about politics. I do get into issues here from time to time, but they are almost always related to LGBTQ people and equality. I made no secret of the fact that I adore Pete Buttigieg and was thrilled to see him running for President. But I never knocked anyone else. And I try not to judge. 

With that said, I think this would surprise a lot of people. I know it surprises me. And I'm really not knocking anyone right now. I'm just surprised, is all.

A recent survey of 1,200 queer men in the United States found that 45 percent planned on voting for Republican President Donald Trump. Comparatively, 51 percent said they would vote for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

Here's the rest. They do into a lot more detail about the poll itself. I have to admit that some of the comments are a little peculiar, especially the one about 10% of men.

Civil Unions for Gay People and the Misguided Pope; Ryan Field Books

Civil Unions for Gay People and the Misguided Pope

I am amazed at how so many straight people are praising the Pope for supporting civil unions. And in all fairness, I'm even more amazed at how some gay people are praising him as if they don't know any better. I don't get it. While we were fighting for legalized same-sex marriage here in the US I was staunchly against civil unions. I wanted equality for all, and that meant legalized same-sex marriage...the word "marriage." I argued that point many times with other gay people who were so willing to settle for less. It's still happening. 

ROME—Pope Francis endorsed civil unions for same-sex couples, in a move that is likely to intensify the already heated controversy over the Catholic Church’s teaching on homosexuality.

Here's more. They think nothing of using the word "homosexuality," too, as if that's still the most common term. It's like 1950 all over again. And if you read the entire article you'll see that the Pope is against same-sex marriage. However, they also state that this is a huge step forward for LGBTQ people in other countries. And that I happen to believe is a good thing. 

We really have a long way to go before we receive total equality everywhere. I just wish the Pope had taken a strong stand on this and come out in support of same-sex marriage, not civil unions.         

I think most of all I'm tired of straights telling me what they believe is right or wrong for me. It shouldn't be any of their damn business.

Support For Gay Marriage At All Time High; Ryan Field Books

Support For Gay Marriage At All-Time High

It feels as if it was just yesterday we were all posting and writing about legalized gay marriage. I know I've linked to more things than I can even recall at this point. And still, after all these years, it seems to be an issue with certain segments of the mainstream. It's improving, but it's still an issue that's coming up in conversation. But more than that, we are still looking for their approval. And I am so sick of people who care about that. 


Seventy percent of Americans support same-sex marriage, according to the 11th annual American Values Survey, the highest percentage recorded by a major national poll. The results, released Monday, found just 28 percent of respondents oppose the right of gay couples to wed.

 

Here's more. The thing that bothers me the most is why the hell do we even care about their approval? We shouldn't care what they think now. It just shouldn't matter anymore.

Father Drives 500 Miles To Allegedly Kill Lesbian Daughter

Father Drives 500 Miles To Allegedly Kill Lesbian Daughter

Here's one of the saddest stories I've seen in a while about homophobia and gay hate. And it's especially bad because it's coming from a parent. 

The 52-year-old man was arrested on a university campus in Narbonne in the south of France, shouting and threatening to kill his newly-out daughter, according to l’Ind├ępendant.

Here's the rest. They mention something really interesting that I didn't know about. They claim that most younger LGBTQ people in general nowadays feel less supported by their parents than previous generations did. I had no idea parental behaviors were worsening. I would have thought things were improving. There's a link to that article as well.

First Openly Gay Woman as Acting Mayor of Anchorage; Ryan Field Books

 First Openly Gay Woman as Acting Mayor of Anchorage

This is happening more and more lately. In spite of so much homophobia out there, both passive-aggressive from liberal allies and aggressive from conservative enemies, LGBTQ people are still moving forward in their own quiet ways and breaking down the stereotypes. And things like this are now becoming commonplace. 

Quinn-Davidson, 40, is an attorney who was first elected to the Assembly in 2018. She will be the first woman and openly gay person to serve as mayor or acting mayor of Anchorage, the Anchorage Daily News reported.

Here's more. I just wish straight people would pay more attention to these things. Right now there's a controversy going on over a song that straight people are claiming is a "gay song." And they never even stop to think how awful that would sound if they were to do that to any other marginalized group. So why should we be singled out with a "gay song?"

In any event, this story makes me proud.

Gay Beach Club Fined For Patrons Having Sex in See-Thru Pool; Ryan Field Books

Gay Beach Club Fined For Partons Having Sex in See-Thru Pool

This is something you don't read about every day. And frankly, it's not something I've seen before either. Apparently, there's a pool at a resort in Mexico that is see-through. The problem is that it's on a public beach and anyone can see what's happening inside the pool. 

While the details of video footage have been blurred, it appears to show two men standing against one of the pool's transparent walls facing the beach while having sex. Authorities did not provide the names of the men in the viral video.


Here's the rest. There's more to read about this one. I can't help but wonder why they would need a see-through pool in the first place.
