um. Yikes?



I know this is “old” news in today’s rapidly changing media, but this Manti Te’o thing is quite amusing. The guy’s not bad looking, and he’s a friggen FOOTBALL PLAYER for Christ’s sake. Don’t chicks love that kinda stuff? He couldn’t get a real-life girlfriend?

Or, at least a girlfriend that he speaks to on the phone?   

I suspect that he might be secretly gay, and having a girlfriend; at least in the eyes of the media, removes him from the is-he-or-isn’t-he conversation. Who can blame him?  Look at all the bigotry that comes out of the woodworks just from Jodie Foster’s “coming out speech”.

Russia has been in the news this week for pushing legislation to make it illegal to provide minors with information about “propaganda” regarding homosexuality, bisexuality and, Heaven forbid, gay rights.

“The bill is part of an effort to promote traditional Russian values as opposed to Western liberalism, which the Kremlin and church see as corrupting Russian youth and by extension contributing to a wave of protest against President Vladimir Putin’s rule.”

And to think I was planning to visit Russia soon.

These pretty much sum up my daily experiences.
