Sometimes on Twitter I find something I want to read more about...and post about. This is one of those times. It's a web site I found through a guy I follow on Twitter, and it's not the kind of thing I see all the time.
The only problem is that he doesn't keep up with the blog, which isn't that unusual with personal bloggers. But he does keep up on Twitter in case any of you are interested in following him.
In any event, it's an amusing read...and I believe the sarcasm is intended.
The bitch is back. It’s been entirely too long and I apologize (actually I don’t, it just seemed appropriate). So whats new? Don’t care, but I’ve been well, I haven’t had sex with randos let alone anyone lately, I’ve just been busy with personal shit, work and school (crying) and that’s pretty much it. Get ready for regular blog updates and even more relatable posts. Sit back (go lay in a tanning bed you pale fuck) and get your iPhone ready to read my blog.
Here the link, and here's his twitter link. @thetangay
Marco Rubio Supporting Gays In Chechnya
Evidently, Republican Senator Marco Rubio recently gave a bold speech about the way gays are being detained and tortured in Chechnya. I've posted about that situation here. So far, from what I've seen (and I've been following this one) Marco Rubio is the only one to bring this into the mainstream. And it's still being ignored for the most part by the media. I didn't even see it trending on Twitter.
“Unfortunately this is not a new reality for those living under the brutal tyranny of the Chechen leader, who by the way happens to be a loyal ally of Vladimir Putin. There have been reports in the past of similar abuses, although these reports seem to be the most brutal and should provoke anger in all of us. We should never, ever tolerate human rights violations against any person for their political views, their religious beliefs, or their sexual orientation.”
Here's the rest. It's really a call for the US to step up and do more for these people.
Olympian Shawn Barber Comes Out
Here's another coming out story with someone who has a public profile. I never get tired of reading them.
He's a Canadian pole vault champion and he came out in public on Facebook.
“Gay and proud! Thank you to my parents for being such a great support. I continue to grow as a person and have a great support group. My parents are my greatest support and have helped me through a lot recently. To my friends, you are always my friends and i love you too!”
