“The Tyra Show” Investigates Vampires

Late last night, while I was up watching TV and craving macaroni and cheese, I caught the world’s most awesome episode of “The Tyra Show” that aired originally on Halloween. Crazy ass Ty-Ty interviewed a ton of “real life vampires” about their blood drinking lifestyle. Most of the guests were your garden variety Dracula wannabes, but my favorite was Sarah, who says she doesn’t crave blood because it’s “cliche and rudimentary.” She says she was born a vampire, but doesn’t like to hang out with other vampires and would rather spend her time with “other sorts.” She also says she is psychic, can go days without eating and just feeds off other peoples’ “energy”, thinks sex is gross, prefers hardcore hip-hop like Too Short to The Cure, and enjoys watching “America’s Next Top Model.” She seems like fun to me. I kind of want to hang out with her. Call me Sarah! Keep reading »

Thoughts From Gays On My IM: Proposition 8 & Gay Marriage Bans

I’m still really pissed that Proposition 8 and all the other gay marriage bans passed on Election Day. And if I’m pissed, guess who’s more pissed? Gay people, who’ve just been told for the zillionth time that they deserve less than straight Americans. I chatted up a few of my gay pals on IM today, to find out how they’re reacting to the news.

    More Proof That The Obamas Are The Cutest Couple In All Of Cuteland

    A friend sent me this video, of the President-Elect and the soon-to-be First Lady, doing a little happy dance together behind the scenes at one of his rallies, not knowing a camera was capturing the moment. At the end you can see Barack mouth in his Michelle’s ear, “I love you so much.” My friend wrote: “She’s a big cheerleader of his and keeps him in line at the same time…men flourish around that behavior. Behind every good man is an extraordinary woman. How can you watch that and ever, ever settle?” To which I thought, “Damn straight.” Keep reading »

    Marriage Under Attack!

    One of the biggest defenses used by people who are not in favor of gay marriage — even from those who don’t oppose civil unions or other gay rights issues — is that marriage is an institution that’s founded on connecting mothers and fathers to their children. Writes Jennifer Roback Morse for the National Review, in her article “8 Is Not Hate”:

    “I view marriage as a gender-based institution that attaches mothers and fathers to each other and to their children. Those of us who support Proposition 8 believe that children deserve at least the chance to have a relationship with a mom and a dad. That isn’t hateful toward anyone.”

    Righty-o! Using “the children” as a shield for bigotry seems like shifty parenting to me, but whatevs. When the divorce rate is at 50% in this country, marriage is already under attack — by straight people! Keep reading »

    Star Couplings: Evan Rachel Wood No Longer Marilyn’s Lolita Fantasy

  • Evan Rachel Wood finally wisened up and dumped Marilyn Manson because he’s “controlling.” And not because he wears white contacts, masturbates on stage, and spikes his morning joe with absinthe? [Star]

    On The Ballot Update: Anti-Choice Measures Shot Down, Prostitution Still Illegal

    So, yesterday was a historic amazing day, with the first African-American winning the Presidency of the United States. It was also a bit of letdown, as it became clear that much of America still doesn’t like the idea of gay people getting married. But there was more good news! Three anti-choice measures failed! Amendment 48 in Colorado, which would have granted fertilized eggs fill rights, was rejected by 73% of voters; Measure 11 in South Dakota, which would have banned abortion save a very vague medical exception, was defeated; and Proposition 4 in California, which would have required parental notification, also didn’t pass.

    On another note, Proposition K, which would have decriminalized prostitution in San Francisco, lost by 16 percentage points. [WOW and Feministing] Keep reading »
