Immigrant rights group loses Catholic funds over gay marriage affiliation

Voz-volunteers-1PORTLAND, Ore. -- A Catholic organization has decided to cut off long-standing funding to a Portland, Oregon, immigrant rights group over its affiliation with an organization that supports same-sex marriage. Voz Workers' Rights Education lost a $75,000 grant in June from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development. The group is the anti-poverty program of ...

Gay Priest Outed On Live Television

_64028438_64028436Reverend Sally Hitchiner already knew she was making waves by appearing on BBC 5 to promote her particular brand of religion — that is, one in which women can be priests and can live full, complete lives without the conventional moral shackles of organized religion.

Except then host Matt Barbet threw her a curve ball.

He mentioned to the live audience that on top of everything, Sally is an “out vicar,” despite the information never having been made public.

Sally took it in stride, owning up to the news without backing away. After the interview she was quoted saying, “I suppose it was bound to come out eventually. My parents know. It’s not as if anyone who loves me will be shocked.”

Barbet insists he thought the information was public based on his research for the interview — an unlikely excuse given the fact that just seven months ago Sally was described by The Daily Mail as having “no children and doesn’t talk about her private life.”

We never like to see anyone forced out of the closet, but we’re happy to have her on our team nonetheless.

Girl Has Wisdom Teeth Removed, Tells Mom She Needs Ryan Gosling’s White Dick

Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 1.54.27 PMPeople usually talk a whole lot of nonsense in the post-surgery, anesthesia-fueled high that occurs after they’ve had their wisdom teeth pulled.

But this girl right here is speaking only the truth — thoughts shared unanimously by the population of planet Earth — in her post-dentist high that has gone viral on Vine.

“I want to have sex with Ryan Gosling,” she whispers to her mother, moments before she informs everyone in the room that she “wants to fuck white dick.”

“I just want to be a Kardashian,” she laments in the series of now-deleted Vines, captured conveniently by YouTuber Dee Cazz and immortalized forever on the Internet. “Is this what marijuana feels like? Cause I don’t like it,” she adds.

A true American hero.

Gay Porn Stars Draw On “Real Life Experiences” To Recreate Frat Hazing Rituals

initiation-bts_12_Underwear kingpin Andrew Christian blurs the lines between marketing and pornography again this week by taking you inside a mock fraternity “Initiation,” the process by which presumably straight college studs are forced to do super-gay things in order to prove their worth.

AC’s latest video, a raucous three-minute backyard party featuring the Andrew Christian trophy boys and special appearances by Cockyboys gay porn stars Max Carter, Levi Karter, Levi Michaels, Duncan Black, Ricky Roman and Tayte Hanson features enough shot-drinking, penis-holding, pie-defiling, ass-spanking action to last you through the end of summer.

It is also allegedly inspired by actual experiences the models boldly claim they have had in real life:

Hazing is wrong! But why it is so much fun?  When we were conceiving this video we gathered all the former frat boys that now work for Andrew Christian and virtually everything that is in this video was taken from their actual experiences being frat boys.

Enjoy some behind-the-scenes shots below, and head on over to Andrew Christian to see the video in full, because it also (finally) features full-blown cock shots.

Zachary Quinto Is James Franco’s Ex-Boyfriend (In New Movie)

james-franco-zachary-quintoPotential gay sex scenes between Star Trek alum Zachary Quinto and misunderstood straight artist James Franco could soon become reality, as Variety reports that Quinto has been tapped to play Franco’s ex-boyfriend in the upcoming Michael Glatze biopic.

The film “Michael” is based on the New York Times article “My Ex-Gay Friend”, which tells the story of how Glatze became a poster child for the ex-gay movement after rejecting his sexuality and repenting for his life as a homosexual, during which he founded the homoerotic teen magazine XY.

“It’s actually a very relatable story about the power of belief and the desire to belong,” director Justin Kelly told Variety. The film, co-produced by Franco and the legendary Gus Van Sant, will also reportedly star American Horror Story‘s Emma Roberts.

Benoit Denizet-Lewis, author of the original Times article, told Variety: “I’m excited that everyone involved in this project is intent on telling a story that captures the full breadth of Michael’s unusual life, from the inspiring gay leader I knew when I was young to the Christian pastor he is today.”

Too bad Glatze left XY before Colton Haynes posed for its pages in “private, obscene, lewd and pornographic photographs” with his alleged ex-boyfriend. Now that would have made for a thoroughly enjoyable subplot.

New Study Finds Three Percent Of Americans Identify As Non-Hetero, In Worse Health Than Straights

100728085-168505296.530x298Another day, another study.

This time, the CDC set out to break down numbers on sexual orientation and health practices in America. 34,557 adults were surveyed, and differences in health-related behaviors, health status, health care service utilization, and health care access by sexual orientation were examined for adults aged 18–64, and separately for men and women.

96.6 precent of adults identified as straight, 1.6 percent identified as gay or lesbian, and 0.7 percent identified as bisexual. The remaining 1.1 percent of adults identified as ‘‘something else,’’ stated ‘‘I don’t know the answer,’’ or refused to provide an answer.

“Major health differences” were found between the more than 3 percent who identify as non-hetero and their straight counterparts. So what are they?

Well, the non-hetero respondents drink and smoke cigarettes at a higher percentage across the board, and a higher percentage of gay/lesbian/bi participants reported experiencing “physiological stress” over the previous 30 days.

In terms of health care utilization, non-heteros got more flu vaccines and HIV tests than heteros, but non-heteros also had a higher rate of avoiding necessary medical procedures due to cost.

Man Mortgages His House To Pay For $100,000 Penis Enlargement Surgery

man-opening-pantsHow far would you go to increase the size of your penis? For one Australian man, he’s willing to fork over $100,000 and risk losing his house.

In May 2013, 32-year-old “Mike” went public with his tale of woe.

“My penis is basically infant-sized,” he confessed to ninemsn.

Mike’s wiener was less than three inches long when erect. Having a micropenis, he said, had caused him a lifetime of psychological torture and distress.

“It has prevented me from doing or experiencing a lot of things,” he said. “I haven’t experienced proper relationships. I found it difficult to talk to girls. I didn’t lose my virginity until I was 24 when I had a girlfriend for three months.”

So in 2012, he spent $45,000 to try and increase the length and girth of his dong. To pay for the surgery, he had to mortgage his house.

“Pre-surgery, I was 2-3cm flaccid,” Mike said, “and I’m now 4cm. My erection is probably around 7cm.”

(That’s approximately $22,500 a centimeter.)

Unhappy with the results, Mike says he’s now planning a second surgery, which is estimated to cost around $18,000. Chances are he will also need a third, more serious surgery, which will cost around $50,000. If he undergoes both surgeries, he will have spent more than $100,000 on trying to increase the size of his peepee.

But Mike says he doesn’t care. He’ll do whatever it takes for a bigger penis and to free himself of the chains and fetters of what he calls a “self-perception issue — am I man enough?”

“Penis size can become such a huge badge of progress which is unfair because there is such a variation in the onset of puberty,” he told ninemsn. “I’d happily be less intelligent, lose a few IQ points and have a bigger penis.”
