Woody Allen Defends Himself Comments (0)

Giphy

Woody Allen has responded, at length, to Dylan, Mia and Ronan Farrow's allegations that he molested Dylan when she was seven years old. I think his response is very believable, at least as believable as Dylan's letter and Mia and Ronan's tweets.

Paul-Singer-gay-rights

Meet Daniel S. Loeb (L) and Paul E. Singer (R), the hedge fund giants who spoke out in favor of gay rights at Davos this week.

From a New York Times piece on gay rights at the forum, the following interesting commentary from U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri) regarding Singer's conservatism vs. his gay-rights stance, which he modified when his adult son came out as gay:

"Also present were two Democratic United States senators, Patrick Leahy of Vermont and Claire McCaskill of Missouri, the latter of whom kidded Mr. Singer about his unusual circumstances as gay rights activist and Republican moneyman.

“'Paul, it’s a devil and angel situation,' Ms. McCaskill said. 'The angel hopes they see the light. The devil hopes they stay there so that we can beat them over and over again.'

"She later added, 'Let me be clear: I want the angel to win.'"

Playing Hod: Itay Defends Outing Aaron Schock Comments (0)

I'm totally in support of Itay Hod for reasons I have expressed over and over on this blog. I have Itay-Hodbeen behind outing since I first understood the concept. Actually, before then; because we have all openly talked about people we assumed were gay from our very earliest conversations about homosexuality.

From the latest New York Times piece on Hod's Facebook-outing of Aaron Schock:

"Mr. Hod says he thinks there’s a Catch-22—that editors essentially argue against outing without proof while at the same time denying reporters the time and resources necessary to prove it. 'I’m not a D.C. reporter,' he said. 'They should be asking those questions; that’s their job, and the fact that they’re not doing it is because this is still an icky taboo subject.'...

"...Is he now concerned that this posting will damage his own career as a journalist?

"'If I don’t get a job because of the fact that I asked this question, it’s not a job I’m supposed to have,' said Mr. Hod, adding that it was worth it because 'the conversation has started.'"

Out-standing.

Boy Culture Turns 8: My 100 Favorite Posts! Comments (0)

BoyCultureBlogYou need a little (Boy) Culture!

StripperIt blows my mind to realize that Boy Culture is now eight years old. I can still remember the joy I felt when I figured out how to post, how to upload an image and how to embed a video. I remember every time a post blew up, bringing in hits and new viewers. I remember the longtime commenters, the trolls, the spam and the never-ending (and validating!) pitches and free tickets and photographers' snaps of half- or all-naked male models. 

RuPaul-Drag-RaceShooting for my blog has never been a drag.

Cone-boyI've used Boy Culture to express myself, to help express others and to connect to people internationally.

I've also used it to show off my humor (both high and low), to flaunt my obsessions, to reality-test my sexual diversions and perversions, to laud the art I love, to lash out against the enemies of gay people and to broadcast my admiration for Madonna.

I want to thank you all for having read this blog over the years. It's a very hard thing to maintain, and it will not be maintained forever. But each time I get some positive (or even just meaningful) feedback, each time my posts are shared on social media, each time something I've written elicits a response, it keeps me going that much longer.

Madonna-stepmother-Joan-MDNAMadonna's stepmother was not impressed.

Thank you. Please enjoy my 100 favorite posts, please let me know if you're reading any old ones for the first time and are liking them and, most of all, please share this entire post far and wide to help get my work out there.

TOTALLY RANDOM LISTS (2011—2013)

I've gotten way into lists. Way. You'll find more of my lists higher up on, uh, this particular list. But the ones that are just completely random go here because I worked my ass off on them, because I love them and because—judging from Quantcast data—you like 'em, too.
