Here we go again with the Benham brothers, those allegedly conservative twins who seem to enjoy speculating on gay men and gay culture...without knowing anything about gay men. It gives them a platform and exposure they normally wouldn't get otherwise.
The twinsies appeared on Liberty Counsel’s “Faith and Freedom” radio show this week to talk about their favorite topic ever: Gay people! And the deep-seated daddy issues that drive them to seek comfort in the arms of other menfolk.
Someone should tell them about all the straight women I see tweeting about "daddies."
You can read the rest here. Of course I'm only speculating now, but I wonder if there's more to these two than what we can see on the surface.
Is Model Austin Armacost Really Asexual?
Maybe I'm wrong about this, but model Austin Armacost recently told the world he's asexual and his story doesn't quite match up to what I've posted about asexuality in the past.
Asexuality is the lack of sexual attraction to anyone, or low or absent interest in or desire for sexual activity. It may be considered the lack of a sexual orientation, or one of the variations thereof, alongside heterosexuality, homosexuality and bisexuality. It may also be an umbrella term used to categorize a broader spectrum of various asexual sub-identities. A study in 2004 placed the prevalence of asexuality at 1% in the British population.
And this is what Armacost says...
Model Austin Armacost, who is currently appearing on “Celebrity Big Brother” and split with husband Jake Lees last year, has revealed that he is asexual.
“I am probably in all honesty the least sexual person you will ever meet,” he said. “As much as I love getting my kit off and showing my bum everywhere, I am like a nun in bed.”
You can read the rest here. Armacost seems like a nice buy, and I'll admit I'm not an authority on asexuality, but I do try to learn more about it whenever I get the chance. To me it sounds as if he's telling everyone he's not promiscuous and doesn't have sex often, which I think is totally different from asexuality. But again, I could be wrong. Maybe what he's talking about is just another degree of asexual?
The comments are not going to help you figure this one out. In fact, don't bother to read them at all. I think the only people who would know for certain are people who identify as asexual.
Shouty Billy Eichner In Your Face
Sometimes I think it's important to explain that not all gay men are the same. They don't think the same way, they don't act the same way, and they don't react the same way. I also think talking about it helps break down some of the stereotypes about gay men.
With that said, I would have to restrain myself from throat punching Billy Eichner if he walked up to me on the street and did something like this...
Teaming up with James Corden, Eichner terrorizes unsuspecting New York bystanders — tickling, chastising, and congaing them into dazed, delirious submission, armed with only a Deadpool mask and a handful of maracas.
There's more here, with an obnoxious video of Eichner. But it takes place in LA, not in NY as the article states. And I could only watch the first few minutes of this display of idiocy without gagging.
