Straight/Gay Penis Size; Gay "Cure" Song; Oscar Wilde 46 Quotes

Straight/Gay Penis Size

There's another study out and this one claims that straight men are more concerned with penis size than gay men. A senior lecturer in the UK made this a focus while working on his PHD.

Half of these men self-identified as gay and the other half as straight. After spending a year on his analysis, he found all men – irrelevant of sexuality and type of sport - were inclined to look at other penises in the changing room.

Gay men tended to feel more self-conscious than straight men, with one participant reporting he felt it was ‘unfair to change in front of heterosexual athletes, in case they felt uncomfortable’.

Some straight athletes admitted to ‘slapping their cock around a bit’ to encourage a semi-erection in order to make their penises look bigger.

Gay men don't do this because they feel as if they should be acting more heteronormative and don't want to be singled out for anything. (I hope all those worried about gay men in locker rooms understand this fully.)

Gay "Cure" Song

A pop singer in Italy is claiming that a song he performed about the "gay cure" (which I guess is like reparation therapy) has ruined his career.

Back in 2006, Giuseppe Povia was selling hundreds of thousands of records and receiving special awards from the music industry.

But then three years later, he released ‘Luca era gay’ (Luca was gay)’ about a man who was ‘cured’ of his sexuality.

In his most recent blog entry, Povia said he is now finding it difficult to get work because of the ‘homosexual campaign’.

For those who don't know what reparative therapy is you can check that out here. It's when they try to "cure" gay men and make them straight...as if being gay is a mental disorder and not something natural. This kind of thing (and thinking) has ruined the lives of more gay men than we'll ever know.

I wonder how Povia would feel if someone sang a song about him being "cured" of stupid.

Oscar Wilde 46 Quotes

I love these things, especially when it's someone interesting like Oscar Wilde. Here's list of 46 witty, sometimes vicious, thing Wilde said:

26. Bigamy is having one wife too many. Monogamy is the same. 

27. An idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all.

28. I always pass on good advice. It is the only thing to do with it. It is never of any use to oneself.

29. I am not young enough to know everything.

30. I sometimes think that God in creating man somewhat overestimated his ability.

31. There is no sin except stupidity.
