One Direction's Liam Payne is denying the gay nude photos of him recently leaked are real. Evidently, someone photoshopped him with another guy standing in the background. I haven't seen the photos and I don't even care. I believe him and that's all that matters. I don't think he's gay either.
But here's where it gets interesting. Payne responded to the leaked fake photos with this:
He posted: "Wow as if people think that weird photo going around is actually me lol think id rather tweet a full frontal than have people look at that[sic]."
When challenged about this as homophobic comment, he replied this way:
I'm 100% not homophobic. But I'm also 100% not gay so when somebody says I am I'm gunna say I'm not which does not make me a homophobe.
See there's where he lost me. Why should it matter so much to him? Just say they aren't real. People who aren't homophobes don't have to say they aren't homophobes. There are plenty of other ways to respond and no one will call you a homophobe. This goes for everyone. By stating that you would rather do anything than be in a gay photo like that, and by denying you're not gay with such strong emphasis, only creates the impression there's something wrong with being gay. If the fake photo had been leaked with Payne standing with a woman in the background he would have just laughed it off and stated his case.
I don't write these posts for people like Payne. I don't really care what he thinks. I write them for other gay men who live with shame and who don't even realize the homophobia in Payne's comment. At a glance, it's hard to catch, but the subconscious misses nothing. And I think it's important to be aware of this, all the time.
You can read the rest here. There really needs to be more awareness about what's homophobic and what's not. At least we know deep down how these people really feel. Because you can't just say you support gays because that's the thing to do. You have to really believe there's nothing inherently wrong with being gay, too.
SNL Going Gay For Pay
During the 40th season premiere of Saturday Night Live, an interesting question was discussed by the "Resident Young Person."
How much money would you go down on a guy for?
Davidson goes on to make a convincing argument about why being paid $1 million to go down on a guy 'is a steal.'
'I hope he starts at $1 million - I would do it for like $3,000 if I had to be honest with myself,' Davidson says with a big toothy smile.
Here's a link to a video of the segment. It's worth watching.
Frankly, I see his point. I'd eat pussy for a million. And I'd kill Tony if he refused an offer like that. You can always rinse your mouth out with Epsom salts, but a million dollar offer doesn't happen every day of the week.
How to Tell a Gay Top or Bottom
I often write these posts and laugh so hard while I'm doing them I can't see clearly. One thing is for sure, you won't read about fun things like this over at Barry Eisler's blog. I love his blog, but when you go there you need Ativan. (He's so serious all the time, and those big scary words he uses. It's absolutely quindillacious.)
This following link will lead you to a video where vlogger, John Bird, tells you how you can tell a gay top from a gay bottom in a nightclub.
Frankly, it's obviously exaggerated, but about as accurate as it gets, at least as far as the gay top example goes. Gay bottoms can be a little trickier. Yes, many do what is shown in the video, however, not all are that open. Some prefer to leave a little to the imagination to help make things more interesting. In that case it usually doesn't take more than a look or a touch to know whether or not the legs go up or remain on the floor.
George Burgess Waxed Balls For Cancer
The twin brother of Rugby player, Thomas Burgess, recently had his balls waxed for charity. In this case it's cancer research. Anyone who does anything for cancer or cancer research is okay with me. Cancer sucks. I know that from personal experience, too.
There's not much to quote here because the whole piece, pardon the pun, has images I can't share legally. However, whether or not it's SFW is questionable. I wouldn't fire anyone for reading a link like this. It's not porn (unless you talk to Sarah Palin), but I usually warn readers in advance.
Tom is one of four brothers who all play Rugby for the same team, the South Sydney Rabbitohs. And they are all wickedly hot.
Yes, indeed. You'll enjoy all the photos.
