Carrie Prejean Thinks People Choose To Be Gay

The now infamous Miss California, Carrie Prejean, is still on the defensive after last weekend’s Miss USA pageant, in which she said marriage should be between a man and a woman and not the gays. This weekend she sat down with a gay blogger (not Perez Hilton!) to discuss her feelings on the subject in more depth. Rex Wockner got to the heart of the matter pretty quick.

Rex: I understand that you were raised to believe that marriage is between a man and a woman, and I understand that you grew up knowing that you were always going to marry a guy, but you’re heterosexual. Um, some people are born gay, maybe, you think?
Carrie: No, I don’t think so … I think it’s a behavior that develops over time.
Rex: Why would someone choose it, given that if you choose that, you get discriminated against?
Carrie: I’m not sure what the motivation would be.

Better think of one fast Carrie, because that hole you’re digging just keeps getting deeper! [Wockner via Jezebel] Keep reading »

Couple Holds Wacky Willy Wonka-Style Wedding

Fans of Candy Land rejoice! This weekend the featured wedding in the New York Times might be one of the quirkiest we’ve seen yet. Held in Dylan’s Candy Bar, Michelle Rosen and David Zornitsky had a candy-themed ceremony as a nod to how the couple met—over a package of Gummi Bears. To show how sweet they are on each other, the space was tricked out to resemble a Disneyland ride — with a lollipop-tree lined aisle, a canopy of Whirly Pops, and a bouquet of cupcakes. The bride wore a dress from “Project Runway” created from Hershey’s and Kit Kat wrappers. Guests noshed on candy sushi, and the first dance was to “Sugar, Sugar.” We think we just got a toothache.

Are Separate Beds The Kiss Of Death In A Relationship?

Here in the states, couples rarely admit to sleeping in separate beds, but across the pond not only do one in five couples avoid sharing a bed, they claim it improves their sex lives, too. An article in the Daily Mail tells the story of engaged couple Laura Mason and Colin Byers, both of whom are 28 and have slept in separate beds four of the last five years they’ve lived together. Citing sleep incompatibility as the reason for their separate beds — his snoring and warm body temperature keep her awake at night — they say their relationship and sex life improved when they stopped sleeping together: “We are just as close as ever. In fact, as soon as we made the decision, our sex life improved. We’d had a great sex life in our first year together, but having no sleep was making us too tired and irritable to crave that intimacy.” Keep reading »

Saturn Edits Commercial To Eliminate Gender Stereotyping

Saturn debuted its “Total Confidence” campaign earlier this month, aiming to help automobile buyers make car payments if they lose their jobs. Yes, this is a great idea during this recession, but the ad missed the mark. In the original commercial, Saturn retailer Jim Smith talks about how losing your job and your car would be the worst ever, saying, “Honey, I’m home! Lost my job! Don’t have a car! What’s for dinner?” When we first saw the ad, we were a little offended by this line. Jim’s partner is responsible for making dinner? He just expects dinner to be ready for him when he gets home? Maybe the two take turns preparing the evening meal, and in this instance it was his night off — or maybe “honey” is a man — but we doubt it. Commercials should be advancing parity, not reinforcing visions of ’50s housewives setting a giant pot roast on the table as their husbands walked through the front door.

We weren’t the only ones who found the commercial dated. Now we’ve started seeing a tweaked version airing. Basically, it’s the same ad without the “What’s for dinner?” line. Thank goodness they wised up and changed it — we don’t want men assuming we can cook … because we can’t. Keep reading to watch the edited version of the ad. Keep reading »

Dating Trend: Going Dutch

This weekend I had a conversation with two good friends of mine who are married and have been with their husbands for five-plus years. They were peppering me with questions about my oh-so-exciting dating life, and I mentioned that all the dinners and drinks were getting expensive. “Wait, what do you mean?” they asked. “Aren’t the guys paying?”

“Oh, no,” I responded. “Men don’t seem to be doing that anymore. Every date I’ve gone on, the check has been split.” They were aghast. What had happened to the tradition of men paying for dates since they were single? Was it the economy? Were men cheaper? Women more insistent on paying their share?

Kiss Across The Miles With A KissPhone

If reaching out and beaming someone isn’t exactly up your alley, there’s another new invention that may help keep your long distance relationship intimate. The KissPhone, created by French freelance inventor Georges Koussouros, is designed with a “huge pair of lips that is able to measure the pressure, percussion speed, temperature, and sucking force of your mouth, sending those parameters to the remote user’s KissPhone.” So, basically, if you and your partner both have a KissPhone, you can kiss the “huge lips,” and your partner will experience the sensation of being kissed on the other end of the call. The concept seems interesting, but if you thought drunk calling and texting was bad, just imagine how embarrassed you’d be if you drunk “kissed” the wrong person. On the other hand, at least you won’t get mono. [via ubergizmo] Keep reading »
