Donald Trump on Gay Issues; Man Buns In Disneyland; Gay Love Upstaging Homophobic Hate

Donald Trump on Gay Issues

Like or not, Donald Trump is gaining support wherever he goes and I was curious about his stand on gay issues...without getting too political in a blog post. I really hate to do that because I'm not a political blogger, I don't want to be a political blogger, and I would rather remain objective as often as I can.

This is what I found, from a gay publication.

In a wide-ranging interview with The Hollywood Reporter, current GOP frontrunner Donald Trump shared his thoughts on the Republican Party’s fight against same-sex marriage and whether it’s a “dead issue” at this point.

“Some people have hopes of passing amendments, but it’s not going to happen,” said Trump. “Congress can’t pass simple things, let alone that. So anybody that’s making that an issue is doing it for political reasons. The Supreme Court ruled on it.”

So ultimately, there's not much out there about Trump's stand on gay issues. He has attended a gay wedding, so there's that.

You can read more about Trump at Towerload, here.

And here's another link to a piece about Trump's poll numbers rising. 

Man Buns In Disneyland

This isn't an article. It's a series of photos of men with man buns in Disneyland. I see more of it all the time around here and I'm hoping it's not going to catch on with everyone. The problem with a man bun is the same for a man as it is for a woman...only the best looking people can get away with it. The rest are just fooling themselves.

Here's the link. 

Gay Love Upstaging Homophobic Hate

I understand the point they are trying to make here, but I'd like to start seeing more about gay couples who've been together for a long time, have built good, solid lives, and are productive members of society. In our attempts to prove ourselves to the world, we constantly seem to fail in this respect.

Documentary photographer Mads Nissen was in Finland for the World Press Photo Exhibition when something caught his eye.

Tweeted Nissen: “Only been to Helsinki about an hour (to open the WPP exhibition) when this happened-”

The pro-family skinhead thug in the background stands next to the familiar logo of anti-gay religious organizations around the world, one that was recently adapted for a ‘straight pride’ flag in Russia and is the symbol for the ‘Manif Pour Tous’ movement in France.

I'm not knocking the photo. It's nice. I like things like this in the right context and at the right time. But wouldn't it have been a little more prudent to gather a group of successful gay men and women together who can buy and sell those anti-gay idiot skinheads right off the planet if they really wanted to?
