Homophobe Heads Explode Over Gay Batman Rumor

polls_batman_superman_3649_272849_poll_xlarge

Yes, people, the ‘fake’ news that Batman will be gay in the upcoming ‘Superman v. Batman’ film did not sit well with ‘decent Americans’:

On Monday, totally fake and not real “satire” news site National Report published an article claiming they had obtained a leaked script of the upcoming Superman Vs. Batman [sic]: Dawn Of Justice, one that portrayed the Dark Knight as “an out-and-proud homosexual.” Naturally, Internet bigots treated the report with their typical level of caution and skepticism, going completely bat-shit over the bat-rumors.

Two examples of heads exploding:

Sad Day for Broadway: RIP Elaine Stritch

85409872-fbbc20aa7c429493bced82079cb7c2de9fbcc68b-s6-c30

 

Broadway (and gay) icon Elaine Stritch has passed away. Even though she was 89, I have to say that I did not expect this one. Via the NYT:

Elaine Stritch, the brassy, tart-tongued Broadway actress and singer who became a living emblem of show business durability and perhaps the leading interpreter of Stephen Sondheim’s wryly acrid musings on aging, died on Thursday at her home in Birmingham, Mich. She was 89.

Her death was confirmed by a friend, Julie Keyes. Before Ms. Stritch moved to Birmingham last year, she lived, famously, for many years at the Carlyle Hotel in Manhattan.

One of my favorite Stritch appearances was on the long-gone “Big Gay Sketch Show.” Watch and take note of a young Kate McKinnon:

 

 

Archie Will Die Taking Bullet for Gay Best Friend

Archie-1

Followers of the latest iteration of Archie comics will be stunned (or pleased) to learn that the series’ iconic character will die trying to protect his gay best friend in the series conclusion:

Archie Andrews will die taking a bullet for his gay best friend.

The famous freckle-faced comic book icon is meeting his demise in Wednesday’s installment of “Life with Archie” when he intervenes in an assassination attempt on Kevin Keller, Archie Comics’ first openly gay character. Andrews’ death, which was first announced in April, will mark the conclusion of the series that focuses on grown-up renditions of Andrews and his Riverdale pals.

“The way in which Archie dies is everything that you would expect of Archie,” said Jon Goldwater, Archie Comics publisher and co-CEO. “He dies heroically. He dies selflessly. He dies in the manner that epitomizes not only the best of Riverdale but the best of all of us. It’s what Archie has come to represent over the past almost 75 years.”

And that’s that. Cue right wing head explosions.

Watch: “Spornosexual” Is All About Hetero Men Looking Like Gay Porn Stars

The metrosexual is dead, long live the spornosexual: a more extreme sex- and body-obsessed male. But who exactly are they?

According to Journalist Mark Simpson, the spornosexual cares less about fashion and more about body, body, body:

With their painstakingly pumped and chiselled bodies, muscle-enhancing tattoos, piercings, adorable beards and plunging necklines it’s eye-catchingly clear that second-generation metrosexuality is less about clothes than it was for the first. Eagerly self-objectifying, second generation metrosexuality is totally tarty. Their own bodies (more than clobber and product) have become the ultimate accessories, fashioning them at the gym into a hot commodity – one that they share and compare in an online marketplace.

And the category is: beefcake. So straight guys are starting to look a lot more like gay porn stars and are taking to Instagram to sell what they’re twerking with. In other words, everyone wins.

The Telegraph UK offers a video explanation that is NOT difficult to watch. Watch below:

Oh No! Poppers Can Make You Go Blind

main_large

 

Yikes! A new report is out of the UK on the harm poppers may do to our eyesight:

The case study describes a 30-year-old white male who developed vision loss in both eyes after inhaling poppers. The researchers noticed subtle changes in the form of yellow spots on the macula deep inside the man’s eye, but they say it’s still unclear just how the drug may be destroying vision.

“Over the past 18 months or so I have come across almost 10 patients with poppers maculopathy, whilst several years ago I had not even heard of the condition, same with a lot of my colleagues,” said Dr. Anna Gruener, a physician at Guy’s and St Mary’s Foundation Trust in London.

[...]

She added that some patients might see improvement in their vision after they stop using poppers while others can suffer irreversible vision loss.

“I felt it was important to raise the issue and increase awareness,” she told Reuters Health.

Well, we already know the impact on the sphincter. It would not be surprising that poppers affect our health in other ways. But, my mother always said masturbating would stunt my growth and that didn’t happen.

Will this affect your popper use?

Watch: Judge Judy Takes on Grindr

2014.02.05-mrconservative-52f1d981c8e43

On yesterday’s Judge Judy (and I am a HUGE fan), the judge takes on a case of a young troll seeking an older man on Grindr. Via Gawker:

“Um, we met on a, um…social website,” said defendant Adam Murphy, who was being sued for not paying back a loan from is considerably older, um…friend. “Um, it’s actually called Grindr…Grindr, it’s an app. For your phone or your iPad. It’s a social app that tells you where homosexual males are and their proximity. To where you are.”

Murphy met the plaintiff IRL at an Applebee’s, which is just perfect. He told Judge Judy he did so just to make friends. Judy felt the pee on her leg, she heard the weather report of rain, and she said, “BALONEY!”

“No, then you go on a website to make friends!” she said. “You go with college friends! But you went on a particular website. I mean, if I were looking to just make friends, I wouldn’t go on a website that said, you know, it’s just for little old Jewish ladies. I would try to expand my horizons a little bit, do you understand?”

Hilarity ensues. Be sure to check out the videos here.
