Love, Click, Enter

19 Feb

When did finding love become almost impossible? And when did 90% of the world become freaks? I’m starting to get the impression that if you live in the city it’s almost certain that you’ll be alone and have random sex for the rest of your life…or until your tits are down to your knees and your ass has been stuffed into your socks.

I’m an online dater….enough said? As I see it, it beats the hell out of getting a drink spilt on you at the bar, or having some drugged out freak of nature slurr his way into your bed.

Ok – let’s back the truck up here a moment. I’m not the guy who stands out in a crowd…well I’m sure I do but the guys aren’t thinking marriage material when they see me. Actually I’m not really sure what they’re thinking.

Right – back to online dating. I promised myself that this wasn’t going to be a dis session or a rant but rather an article listing all my questions directioned at you, the reader.
Have you online dated before? If so what has your experience been like? Write me and tell me all about your story.

Obama Sexuality Gay Marriage

28 Oct

Terrorist strikes on four American cities. Russia rolling into Eastern Europe. Israel hit by a nuclear bomb. Gay marriage in every state. The end of the Boy Scouts.

All are plausible scenarios if Democrat Barack Obama is elected president, according to a new addition to the campaign conversation called “Letter from 2012 in Obama’s America,” produced by the conservative Christian group Focus on the Family Action. continue reading

Officials at Mr. Haider’s party, which gained more than 10 percent of the votes in September elections, tried to limit the political fallout from the statement by dismissing Mr. Petzner as head of their parliamentary group and denying that the men were lovers. However, their requests that the radio interview not be rebroadcast were rebuffed by Austrian journalists.

Famous for his impersonation of personalities like Batangas Gov. Vilma Santos, he said he opted not to announce his marriage because he wanted it “private.” continue reading

Trans woman claims violation of human rights over marriage refusal
A woman in Malta who has been refused the right to get married to her male partner because she used to be male has challenged the decision in court.

The Director of Public Registry’s decision to refuse to issue marriage banns is a breach of her fundamental human rights, claims Joanne Casser.

In February 2007 Justice Gino Camilleri ordered the director, Anthony Geraldi, to issue the banns on the grounds that the union is legal.

He ruled, as the bride to be has now become a woman, there was no contravention of marriage legislation.

Spanish military LGBT activist releases gay calendar

Albert Marchena and made history by being part of the first ever same-sex civil ceremony to take place between two military men in Spain in 2006.

The Spanish Air Force private, 29, is now no longer with his partner, a fellow private, but has drawn media attention once again by producing a potentially controversial gay calendar.

Mr Marchena’s calendar, Arcoiris, contains images of gay men embracing on an altar wearing only dog collars, a naked angel in a cemetary, and a transsexual crucifixion.

Leader of Austrian right sacked for revealing Haider was his gay lover
The man who had taken over the leadership of right wing political party Alliance for the Future of Austria after the death of Joerg Haider has revealed that they were lovers.

Stefan Petzner, 27, said in a radio interview about Mr Haider’s death last week in a car accident:

“We had a relationship that went far beyond friendship.

“Joerg and I were connected by something truly special. He was the man of my life.”

He also claimed that Haider’s widow, Claudia “loved him as a woman. He loved her as a man. I loved him in a completely different and personal way. She understood that.”

Mr Petzner has been forced to stand down from the leadership and will serve as deputy leader.

The revelation that Mr Haider, 58, was having sex with his young protege has shocked Austria’s fascists.

Joerg Haider had never been open about his homosexuality.

The German and Austrian press outed the married father of two daughters in 2006.

Europe cannot impose recognition of same-sex partnerships says EU Commissioner

The man responsible for the new EU directive on discrimination has said that it is up to individual member states whether or not to legally recognise gay and lesbian relationships.

Vladimir Spidla, the Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities, said in an interview for Destination Equality magazine that the directive must strike a balance between national competence in family law and the non-discrimination principle.

The magazine is published by gay rights group ILGA Europe. Click here to see a copy.

In July the European Commission adopted a proposal for a directive which provides for protection from discrimination on grounds of age, disability, sexual orientation and religion or belief beyond the workplace.

All goods and services which are commercially available to the public, including housing, will be covered by the directive.

Marriage Equality

23 Oct

As a Canadian, I’ve witnessed my country legalize gay marriage, and have our Prime Minister threaten to take it away with no success. I’ve met many gay Americans over the last few years who have been repressed by the Bush Administration and from I can tell is that the GLBT community have been living in the shadows for too long.

Lots of attention has been paid to the Proposition 8 Ballot Initiative/Marriage Equality battle going on in California this fall, and rightly so.  California is a big state, a trend-setting state, and what happens in California is often a harbinger of things to come across the rest of the country (think of the Kemp Property Tax wars of the early ‘80s).  But there are two other states this fall that have similar ballot initiatives related to same-sex marriage:  Arizona and Florida.

Equality isn’t only about getting what everyone else already has. It’s about working together for an equal opportunity for a better future. It’s not right that one group of people can show their love and commitment while another group ‘is not allowed’.

This November 4th, we have a chance to affirm the equality of ALL people under the laws of our states.

Prop 102 in Arizona, Prop 8 in California and Prop 2 in Florida would deny gay people who love each other, live as families, pay taxes and seek to build their communities as healthy, caring and prosperous places to live, the right to marry.
