You Know You’re Gay When…

You Know You’re Gay When… Lyle Waggoner made me gay. He was the centerfold in Playgirl, 1974. CHAPTER 4 YOU KNOW YOU’RE GAY WHEN… You know what color chartreuse is. You have used chartreuse in a sentence. You wear chartreuse.                   For millions of red-blooded American boys and girls—heck, not just Americans but anyone in the world with red blood—coming out of the closet to your family takes a bit of doing. Perhaps “takes a bit of doing” is putting it mildly since one tends to agon...

He only sleeps with straight dudes and here’s why

In an anonymously-penned essay for The Guardian’s weekly column “My Life in Sex”, a gay explains why he’s only interested in having sex with his husband… and straight dudes. “T here have always been men who have sex with other men, but don’t consider themselves gay or even bisexual,” the man writes. “I should know; I’ve been sleeping with them since my schooldays.” Obviously, this is nothing new. There have been countless books, studies, and academic articles written in recent years about st...

Will conversion therapy be banned in the U.S.?

Most medical and mental health organizations have condemned conversion therapy as injurious and lacking support of empirical evidence. Today, 19 states and many cities have passed laws protecting youths from the practice. However, lawsuits and pushback by religious organizations have limited what laws can be passed. Recent years have seen a monumental shift in conversion therapy's standing in society. In 2017, the New York City Council passed an ordinance banning anyone from charging a fee for ...

Brian Williams blindly furthers false claim Mike Bloomberg could've given every American $1 million

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is rich, but he's not that rich.The false inflation of Bloomberg's wealth started when a journalist incorrectly tweeted that he could've used his $500 million in 2020 ad spending and "given each American $1 million and still have money left over." Then, without anyone breaking out a calculator, the tweet ended up on MSNBC's 11th Hour with Brian Williams, with both the host and The New York Times' Mara Gay going along with it."Someb...

I’d never heard of Laurence Fox until he started lecturing us about racism | Suzanne Moore

The actor has joined the ranks of posh white guys who feel they have to champion the so-called common man.

When Fox finished speaking, the show’s presenter, Fiona Bruce, stepped in to remind us that the home secretary, Priti Patel, had also said the criticism wasn’t racist.

Stephen King Faces Backlash for Comments on Academy Awards Diversity

(NEW YORK) — Stephen King says he cares only about “quality,” not “diversity” when deciding on awards.

Only quality,” King tweeted this week. “It seems to me that to do otherwise would be wrong.” The best-selling author’s comments came shortly after the announcement of this year’s nominees for the Academy Awards, widely criticized for only choosing male directors and for an almost e...

#4: What makes someone gay? Science is trying to get it straight. | Top 10 2019

Big Think's fourth most popular video of 2019 features bioethicist Alice Dreger. She presents the idea that heterosexual people have been less interesting to scientists than gay people in terms of why they exist. This is because, evolutionarily speaking, being gay doesn't lead to a higher "higher reproductive fitness" — meaning, it doesn't lead to more babies.Huge and rigorous studies have proven the fraternal birth order effect: Statistically, if a mother has lots of pregnancies of males, every...

Growing up gay and Asian, everyone told me I wasn’t “good enough.” Turns out, everyone was wrong.

From a young age, I knew I was different. During one of my classes in second grade, I was caught talking in Mandarin with one of my Chinese classmates. Instead of simply telling us to stop, something had hit a nerve with my teacher. She paused the entire class and proceeded to lecture us in front of our peers. “This is America. We only speak English!” AdBridg.cmd.push(function() { AdBridg.display("div-gpt-ad-inarticle1"); }); That was the day I learned my culture was dangerous in the white s...

Self-liberation and the watershed moment of coming out

The biggest decision of Pfizer executive Sally Susman's life was to come out as gay in 1984, when society was not as accepting as it is now.She was told she would never have a spouse, a career, or children; those were the fears told to her by the people who loved her most.Defying that prediction became her personal north star, and 31 years later she has done it. Susman used that truth-telling moment of coming out as a way to focus her ambitions and plant the seeds for her future. ...

Does Hollywood fail gay actors who are out from the start?

Gay Pride wasn’t born yesterday, but at 50 this month, it’s never been more vital. That’s due, in part, to Rupert Everett, who was something of a pioneer in the movement as it entered adulthood. The 60-year-old actor came out in 1989, five years into his filmography, back when it still was considered certain career suicide to do so. I’ve always thought of Everett as a successful actor, so I was surprised to come across a 2009 The Guardian profile in which he lamented the effect coming out had h...
