Before I even get started, remember the old saying "don't shoot the messenger." In other words, I post these things objectively and it doesn't mean I'm supporting one candidate over another. I don't think it would be fair to my readers if I got too political here on this blog. I want them to feel comfortable when they come here, because there are very few places where we can feel comfortable anymore.
In any event, here's an article about an article that I thought was interesting on Trump and gays.
A New York Times article portrayed Donald Trump as possibly a bit pro-gay, or at least not as antigay as other GOP candidates, and the HuffPo’s Michelangelo Signorile is frothing mad.
It all started with veteran reporter Maggie Haberman’s piece “Donald Trump’s More Accepting Views on Gay Issues Set Him Apart in G.O.P.,” an article that is, quite frankly, full of more anecdotal evidence of Trump’s alleged gay-friendliness than any kind of real facts about the matter.
You can read the rest here. The comments are worth reading, too.
I think we'll be hearing a lot more about this in the future.
Nick Hawk's Million Dollar Dick
I honestly don't even know who Nick Hawk is, because I don't watch reality TV much anymore. The only reality show I really like is Big Brother and that's only because I've been following it since season one...like a hundred years ago.
Gigolos star Nick Hawk just insured his penis for $1 million because, hey, you can never be too careful with your moneymaker, amirite?
Cosmopolitan caught up with the ripped reality star and asked him the questions that would be on our minds if we interviewed him: namely why, how, and…what about theft?
It's all in good fun. I can't remember the name of the actor, but when I was a kid I remember some other C-lister did something like this just for the sake of publicity. He drifted off into oblivion, which is why I can't even remember his name. Everybody gets old, even Nick Hawk and his dick. He may as well use IT to his advantage while he still can.

Stars Who Will Perform In North Carolina
I think I've posted before about how some stars are boycotting the entire state of North Carolina in protest against a new law that's allegedly anti-gay.
But many stars WILL continue to support their fans in North Carolina and they have no intention of letting this law harm people more than it already has. In fact, stars we love like Cyndi Lauper will perform in NC and will donate the proceeds to LGBT organizations.
“I think for some artists they feel like they can make a difference with their business and some artists feel like they can make a difference being there and supporting their fans that are part of the community,” Cam said. “Why leave them alone? So yeah, it’s kind of a hard thing. I don’t actually have to make that choice currently, but I feel like I’d like to go there just to be with my fans.”
You can check out the rest here. This law has caused so much outrage even PayPal is holding back on a new 400 employee venture in Charlotte.
It was only about six years ago we were all boycotting PayPal for alleged censorship...interesting.
