ABOVE: He's the hottest guy you'll see all day — by a hair.
BELOW: Keep reading for Chris Pratt's bi character, Nick Jonas's frosty buns, a Proud Boys fashion blunder and more ...

ATTITUDE: Chris Pratt's Guardians of the Galaxy character Peter Quill is bisexual and polyamorous. No comment yet from Pratt on this.
No sun's out, but buns are out! (GIF via Mr. Man — more)
GAY FLESHBOT (WORK UNFRIENDLY): Good God, how have I missed these absurdly hot images of Nick Jonas with Bear Grylls in clingy boxer-briefs?!
KENNETH IN THE (212): This model is hot, but I'm not sure I want to go back to '90s fashion for men. (Written by a guy who rotates two pairs of sweatpants and one hoodie in recent months.)
NY1: NYC is expecting 8-14 inches (gulp) of snow from Wednesday to Thursday, our first big snowfall. The storm is called Gail, so of course all I can think of is Gale Storm.
YAHOO!: For some reason, the Proud Boys have taken a shine to a very unique yellow kilt created by clothing company Verillas — which in a statement denounced the use, asserting:
Disgusted to see members of “Proud Boys” a fascist terrorist org wearing our products. We're LGBTQIA+ owned, operated, designed and lived. We're against everything they stand for. I see $750 of our gear in the picture - I just gave $1000 to the NAACP to redirect hate to love.
You can support the brand here. (How the fuck did the Proud Boys order from this site and not see the disconnect?)
When the LGBTQ+-owned and -operated Virginia kilt company Verillas saw photos circulating on social media that showed members of the violent, far-right group Proud Boys wearing its kilts in Washington, D.C., the company made sure its views were known. pic.twitter.com/TSKA4NGbVi— NowThis (@nowthisnews) December 14, 2020
NBC NEWS: SCOTUS declined to consider an Indiana case that was trying to overturn a lower court ruling allowing same-sex parents to be listed on their children's birth certificates, amounting to a big win for gay parenting.
NYT: Vladimir Putin has finally congratulated Biden on becoming president-elect. He did so as warmly as he knows how — via telegram. Which, apparently, is still a thing.
C-SPAN2: McConnell, sounding like he's reading a eulogy, grimly acknowledged that Biden and Harris are President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris — but only after his lord and master Vladimir Putin had:

ROLLING STONE: The New York Post is a horrible, reactionary tabloid; there is nothing positive about it. Case in point: It recently shamed an NYC EMT for daring to supplement her income on OnlyFans. Who. Cares? Why should anyone care what a medical worker does on her off time, other than to maybe think it's annoying that she can't survive on what she's being paid as a truly essential worker? She now has a GoFundMe to fight for her job. It has, so far, raised 10x what she was hoping to raise.
CNN: Pornhub has removed more than half its content in an effort to curb alleged child abuse and the posting of videos featuring minors. (I never ran into that on Pornhub, did you?) The site had 13.5 million videos up last week, and now has under 3 million, mostly due to barring videos from users who are not verified. Pornhub raised a good point with this statement:
... every piece of Pornhub content is [now] from verified uploaders, a requirement that platforms like Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, Snapchat and Twitter have yet to institute.
They always come for the sex businesses first (poor Rentboy), even when those other social media titans are not only profiting off of sex (albeit less so in the case of hypersensitive Facebook and Instagram!), but also off of being vessels for the distribution of disinformation.

OMG.BLOG! (WORK UNFRIENDLY): Watching Latrice Royale use Grindr for the first time in eight years makes me want to spend more time watching more people other than myself using Grindr.
