12 Gay Men to Run From

I’m unabashedly taking a cue from fellow lovesite, Tango, and their 10 Men to Run From – Not After, because the man-on-man dating landscape is just as treacherous, and filled with traps.  If you like to date just to date, and screw, consider this a walk down memory lane, and congrats.  You’re probably better at the delineation between tricks and boyfriends than I ever was.  If you date with an eye to commitment, monogamy, and a Crate and Barrel registry, take heed.  Here’s a list of whom not to do, based on my own experiences.

  1. The Closeted: Apologies in advance, but dating a closeted man is the funny uncle to dating a married man.  It even feels pretty much the same, especially around the holidays, no matter how good and kind he is, or how he tries to make it seem otherwise.  (See also 2, and 3.)  Come out boys, it’s 2008.

Sarah Palin: Ahmadinejad in Heels

President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and Sarah Palin.  One’s a naive, oil-obsessed, holy war-calling, religious extremist, and the other is an Iranian.  Here’s the Lovesick Billy take on this dynamic duo:

Ahmadinejad: Thinks the Holocaust is a myth.

Palin: Thinks evolution is a myth.

Ahmadinejad & Palin: Were not widely known when they entered their presidential election campaigns, although they had already made their marks for rolling back earlier reforms. Continue reading ‘Sarah Palin: Ahmadinejad in Heels’

From One *Former* Victim of Molestation to Another

In March, I wrote a post called “Pedophilia May Have Physical Causes“, and received the following comment:

I too was molested by my step father and the repercussions that it had created has not been a pretty picture. For the most part I function in society. I have been labeled hypo-manic depressive with a slight personality disorder…  I wonder why. My mother denied the abuse and for that she has been forever cut out of my life. The next time that I want to see them both is at their funerals. It has been many years and the hate and anger will not go away and it affects me on a daily basis. Do you have any advice? The experience has only led to worse things in my life (being raped 2 times) due to all the drinking to kill the pain. I have since stopped that all together… I really don’t want to go for a third time. I have tried counseling and well, it has gotten me nowhere. – Dexx36

This comment deserves more than just another one in return.  First, thanks to everyone who commented.  Sometimes the hardest declaration you can make is the one you alone can hear.

Here’s what has worked for me, Dexx: meds, therapy, the support of friends and family, and resolution, not necessarily in that order.  Continue reading ‘From One *Former* Victim of Molestation to Another’

Mario, Michelle, Ellen and the Jonas Bros. on the Lot

The Jonas Bros. played a concert across the street from my office, on the WB lot, taping for the Ellen show.  Mario Lopez was there for the network, and Michelle Obama was there encouraging on-site voter registration.  Now that’s what I’m talking about.

The Real Last Word on Sarah Palin

It’s time to stop talking about Sarah Palin.

Sarah Palin may not share beliefs with much of the country, and that’s just fine.  She has her hands full with a special needs child, a pregnant teen, and an investigation into her conduct, all of which she’s certain to survive.  It’s okay, because at 44 – by political standards – she’s just a kid.  Her day will come.  Just not this year.

Governor Palin is formidable: a smart, congenial, accomplished woman, passionate about her country.  Continue reading ‘The Real Last Word on Sarah Palin’

Palin Comparison to Lynne Spears

Last December, People reported Lynne Spears’ book on parenting was indefinitely delayed when her 16-year old, unwed daughter, Jamie-Lynn became pregnant.  The world called them trailer trash.  The implied cry: what’s she doing writing a book on parenting when she can’t keep her teenage daughter intact through high school?  (Say nothing of Britney.)  Hey, at least Lynne called it what it was.  Almost a year later, instead of a book that may have accompanied Dr. Spock, she publishes Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World.

Now that we have a recklessly chosen VP candidate in the same situation as Lynne Spears, (say nothing of the Troopergate scandal [where she pretty clearly dogs her former brother-in-law, expending considerable personal and state resources over a personal vendetta] and the ensuing legal defense), what will be said of her?  Continue reading ‘Palin Comparison to Lynne Spears’
