Four tired old “gaysian” stereotypes that need to die in 2020

Living as a gay Asian (a.k.a. gaysian) man in America has had its challenges. Growing up, I never saw any Asians on television or in advertisements, let alone LGBTQ Asians. Over the years, Asians that entered mainstream media were represented as supporting roles, typically the exotic and mysterious love interest or the awkward computer geek. On the rare occasion that a gaysian did break through, they always fell into the stereotypes of hyper-feminine, passive roles. But a new year (and decade!...

Revlon Champagne on Ice, Smoky Rose, Bare Affair Super Lustrous Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Champagne on Ice Revlon Champagne on Ice Super Lustrous Lipstick ($8.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a light, rosy copper with warm undertones and a pearly sheen.

Sunday Firesides: The Last Great Adventure

Just thirty years ago, the only photos you’d have seen of travel destinations were in pamphlets or books checked out from the library. Without the aid of review sites, you were never entirely sure what kind of hotel you’d booked or what kind of experience you’d have at a restaurant. Just a hundred years ago, there still remained a few “firsts” for the most daring of explorers to discover. First time charting an Amazonian river. First time reaching the South Pole. Today, you can use Google Maps...

Have you ever gotten rid of a product and regretted it?

I don’t think so; I think at most I might have ended up purchasing it again later on but it was less of a regret feeling – more like “Hm, I want to try this again” but I didn’t get upset about the fact that I got rid of it. I was happy to have it gone for that period of time, really, since... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

And what does his refusal to permit himself these feelings mean for me?I don’t know when I first heard my grandfather’s story. But I do remember the little green book with the white cross on it. The book was kept in a black steel cabinet in our living room, one that was usually locked, its contents mysterious. There must be important things in there, I thought, that were not for me to see.My paternal grandpare...
