This is always a tough one for me. When Hillary Clinton said she "evolved" on gay marriage I cringed a little. And now Theresa May is basically saying the same thing, and I'm cringing again. It's not that I don't understand people changing and evolving. It happens to me, too. However, I want an apology along with these, "I've evolved," statements. I think it's only fair to apologize to the large group of people to whom you've been doing the unthinkable injustice all these years by NOT supporting gay marriage.
In any event, I won't be holding my breath for any apologies any time soon. We all know it doesn't work that way.
UK Prime Minister Theresa May has defied her allies in the DUP by saying she supports marriage equality in Northern Ireland.
Conservative leader May had to do a deal with the Democratic Unionist Party after failing to win an outright majority in June’s UK election. But the DUP opposes abortion and LGBTI equality and has blocked attempts to allow same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland.
Here's the rest. I'm also not too thrilled with the way they lump abortion in with gay marriage. Gay marriage is a celebration and a beginning, not a termination.
Gay For Pay Solo Porn Ruined His Life
This is kind of sad because Michael Hoffman obviously didn't know what he was doing...and he still doesn't know what he's doing. Instead of owning his past, he's knocking it and putting himself down for doing what millions of other guys do on a daily basis nowadays. The only difference between him and these other guys is that he did it in public.
But it turns out that while he claimed he made over $10,000 with those videos, his future has not turned out quite as positive as he’d hoped.
‘My decision four years ago to start making videos has really fucked me up,’ he said on Twitter.
‘I lose girl after girl, can’t land a relationship, can’t land a job.
There's more here. I don't think his life is ruined or that he should feel shame. I just think he needs to look in a different direction and move forward in that direction.
Kevin Smith Apologizes to Ben Affleck
Here's a follow up to the story I linked to yesterday about a few comments Ben Affleck allegedly made when he was younger and just starting out. Evidently, Kevin Smith, the guy who claims Affleck made these comments, has received a good deal of backlash since the story broke.
Director Kevin Smith is doing damage control.
The Dogma director posted a video to Facebook trying to explain comments he made over the weekend. He also apologized to actors Ben Affleck and Evan Rachel Wood for the misunderstanding he inadvertently caused.
‘I feel fucking so stupid,’ Smith said in the video. ‘This is the problem with having a big fat mouth like mine, but honestly, I didn’t think I was doing anything bad.’
You can read the rest here. I was sarcastic in my post, but I don't think anyone holds anything against Ben Affleck for things he said in the 90s...or rather, if he said them. I know I don't. In that respect I think we've all evolved since then...me included.
And I give Smith all the credit in the world for apologizing. We never got that from ANY politician.
