Brokeback Leads Oscar Race

Brokeback Mountain took off to an early lead in the Oscar race this morning! Let's just hope it does not get shut out like it did at the SAG awards. CNN.com has the breaking news:
"Brokeback Mountain" leads Academy Awards field with eight nominations, including best picture.

And even Jake Gyllenhaal was nominated!!! Now if only the voters can ignore that 80's porn mustache he puts on halfway through the movie...

Show Us Your Privates Uncle Sam

Seven Members (and yes, we mean members and not people) of the 82nd Airborne have been accused of participating in "homosexual conduct" on a gay porn website that has a Military theme.

While you can read the story about the soldiers, unfortunately it is completely useless. The journalist who wrote the story did a horrible job! No where (and I reread it several times) is the actual website even named in the story. For someone like me who is interested in journalism, this is highly dubious. What if I want to investigate the story further?

UPDATE: Of course Fleshbot is on top of this story. We feel so pitiful. We promise to be more well versed in gay porn in the future...

Wonkette on Crack!

Blogging about blogs is definitely high on my list of "things that are ridiculous," but I could not resist posting about the new Wonkette. As an avide reader for the past 2 years, I was shocked and dismayed to see the new site design.

I feel like I stumbled upon the "large print" edition for the elderly readers combined with the anime children's verions... WTF?!

It's bad enough that Ms. Wonkette herself barely even posts anymore...now it even looks different! I miss my classic wonkette!:-(

The new and un-improved wonkette

Washington ROCKS!

(not this one...the state one)

After years(more like decades...not just a few years) of stalling and debate, the Washington State Senate today passed an anti-discrimnation bill with a vote of 25-23. The bill will prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in housing, lending and employment.

There were tears, loving embraces and of course...champagne! (y'all know the gays can't celebrate without a little bubbly!)

The bill is now sent back to the House, where is is expected to be quickly passed and sent to the Governor who will sign it.

It's a good day to be gay in Washington (again..the state...not this washington...although i guess it's good to be gay here too...then again...it's friday...so it's good to be gay just about anywhere...except maybe Alabama...)

He's Gay; and He Doesn't Pay!

An update from across the pond:

In the race for the leader of England's Liberal Democratic Party, Simon Hughes admited he has had homosexual relationships in the past...just days after declaring he had no "skeletons" in his closet. Apparently there weren't any skeletons in the closet...it was just him in there! Sources say he plans to continue his bid to keep his leadership role, and he said that he feels this "does not disqualify me from doing a good job in public life and I propose to carry on doing that with the usual enthusiasm and determination." (something we preach daily in my job at the Victory Fund)!

Just a few days ago, another contender for the Presidency, Mark Oaten, resigned after threats that someone would reveal publicly that he used a "gay rent boy"(whatever that is... i'm thinking it's some queen who pays your rent for you...or something...)

I guess some British Parliament members can get what they want without having to "pay the rent"... good job Mr. Hughes!

BREAKING NEWS: Clay Aiken is Gay!

That's right folks... the American Idol "almost" winner and teen heartthrob Clay Aiken is gay!

All i can say is: "well....DUH!"

Leave it to the National Enquirer to print a shockingly obvious story! NE's latest issues details Clay's affair with an ex-army ranger who claimes the two engaged in a late night hotel "romp" after talking online (Clay's sn was apparently "ValleyPrettyBoy"). Not only is he gay..he's also a slut: " within five minutes he started to feel my arms and put his hands on my leg...before I knew it, we were having unprotected sex."

So how do we know this is true? How can it be that our dear dear "straight" idol is gay? Mr. Army has the cum-rag(aka "DNA-encrusted washrag") to proove it! (no really, i'm not kidding...)

So i hope we have all learned a lesson here... when you are a flaming, blatant homosexual, make sure you take your DNA-encrusted washrag with you when you leave a shady motel in NC...or you might just be outed by the National Enquirer.

Don't Show Katie, Tom!

A new video making the rounds on the web shows how Brokeback Mountain is certainly not the first gay movie about stereotypically macho characters. A second look at Top Gun makes this point all too clear.

Check it out: Top Gun is Gay

Oh, and Katie, Tom is gay...(go ahead sue me Tom, sue me!)

Because Gays Laugh Too

Ok. Homophobes, it's alright to come out of closet again and make some good jokes. Just as long as they have to do with assless chaps!

That's right, Brokeback Mountain has made homophobe-chic cool again. According to a report in USA Today, it is okay to laugh at gays again, and again, and again. Oh come on, as if any of us ever stopped making fudge-packing jokes after junior high. Heck, even GLAAD says it's OK again:
Yet, for the most part, Brokeback's rise as a rich source of hilarity has been a positive sign, according to Neil Guiliano, president of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. "When a person or a piece of artistic work reaches a certain level of acceptability, it's OK to joke about it. The whole buzz is this is a great movie."

So go on. Make the best cowboy joke you can in mixed company. It's OK. Really, we promise. (Unless you manage to offend us. Then we will scream like the queens we are.)

Virginia Sucks! even more.

Virginia lawmakers just set the State on a path towards banning gay marriage in their constitution:
Virginia lawmakers gave final legislative approval Wednesday to a proposed constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage, despite warnings the measure is so broadly worded it could have dire unintended consequences for all unmarried couples.

The state of affairs for gays in Virginia just keeps getting worse. The other PoliBoi and I were actually considering living there this go around as we search for a new apartment. I'd rather take my skinny gay white ass to Anacostia at this point. At least there I have the chance of getting ass-raped before getting murdered with a bullet. Sounds a lot better than the fence I'd probably get tied to and beaten on in VA.

If gays that live in Virginia do not leave in one year from today, they are either stupid or hate themselves a whole lot.

Mean Girls

In our continuing coverage of the American Idol auditions, I have run into yet another CNN article about those crazy judges...going in-depth to discover why they are so mean..
Weight and sexuality are favorite targets, as in previous seasons and just like around the typical school yard. But there is new venom in everybody's blood, and emotional fragility be damned.
Yes, that's right.. DAMN YOU emotional fragility!

Texas TOO Gay Friendly for the Church?!

So here's something I never thought I would write a post about... apparently Texas likes the gays a little too much, at least too much for the Southern Baptist Convention. The SBC has broken ties with the Faith Harbour Church in Baytown, TX, because they were allowing another (gay-friendly!) congregation to meet in their church. OH THE HORRORS!

The other congregation's website says that they "welcome and affirm homosexuals, bisexuals, and transgendered people." And get this...they have a woman minister! A WOMAN!! Isn't she suppsoed to be cooking and cleaning for her husband? what does she think she is doing.

When the Faith Harbour Church defended their actions and said they would continue to allow the gay-enablers to meet there, the Southern Bapstist Convention cut all ties.

who knew texas had gay-friendly people in it? C-R-A-Z-Y!

Don't Ask, Don't Tell, Don't Medicate

The US Military is losing key medical personnel who are being discharged under the anti-gay and anti-Military "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. Of course this only makes sense. When you are in a business where your limbs are very likely to get blown off at some point in your career, it is completely rational to get rid of the only people that can help you simply because they enjoy a little sodomy action from time to time.

It's not like the gay doctors in the Military are going to start ass-raping the wounded soldiers. So get over it, and repeal this dumb law already!

Your tax dollars at work...

Someone Alert GLAAD: A GAY IS GOING TO HOLLYWOOD!

Simon again told someone to wear a dress. But this time the potential drag queen was good enough to go to the next round in American Idol. Perhaps it was his eye for fashion (he did love Paula's shoes), but either way we know we got a gay headed to Hollywood. GLAAD should be more than happy now. Now someone get this boi some gold chiffon.

More Jesus!

So apparently the PoliBois are on a Jesus fix today... first Kanye West, then the most amazing video you will ever see! (probably not)

This video has recently been released by the official Jesus library, and is thought to be actual proof that Jesus was gay... (like any straight men strip down and sing Gloria Gaynor?!)

You HAVE to see this video!

p.s. - watch out for the surprise ending!

Watch Gay Jesus!

Jesus and Porn

Very few people can bring together Jesus and porn, but innovative rapper Kanye West seems to have done just that. After praising gay people and telling everyone that Bush hates black people, Kanye now has a Jesus complex exposed on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine. Oh, and he also has a porn addiction that he admits in the Rolling Stone cover story:
The strangest tangent of the Rolling Stone story, however, is when West says he's addicted to pornography. He remembers first seeing his father's Playboy magazine when he was 5 years old.

"Right then," West says, laughing, "it was like, `Houston, we have a problem.'"
I like this guy more and more...

The Message is not Working on Marriage

The numbers do not lie. When it comes to state-wide ballot measures banning same-sex marriage, the equal rights movement (ERM) is spending just as much as radical right-wing groups and losing at almost every turn. Clearly this is not an issue that comes down to spending. We are not being out spent. We are losing on how we message the issue. If the ERM wants to make any progress, we had better start making a better case that marriage equality is morally right. As long as we skirt the moral issue, we will keep writing ourselves out of society at the ballot box.

Bush has Awkward Gay Moment

Bush a gay cowboy?While speaking to a group of students at Kansas State University on Monday, Bush was asked by a student if he had seen "Brokeback Mountain." Bush seemed flustered..and said something which didn't make much sense (can we expect much more out of him" he responded by saying he had not seen the movie and telling the student "I hope you go - you know... I hope you go back to the ranch and the farm is what I'm about to say."

What was really going through his mind was: "who let the gay in here? I thought we screened all these audiences...dammit!"

My favorite part of the story though is what happened after he uttered this nonsensical sentence: "The audience applauded, even though it was not clear what Bush meant." YAY! Bush is an idiot! WOO HOO!

God people in Kansas are stupid!

Funny Black People and Middle-Upper Class White Teens Integrate

That's right, WB and UPN television networks are merging. It's a joint venture between CBS owned Viacom and Time Warner. The new network name: CW. Does this mean that the pristine white neighborhoods depicted in the the WB shows will now have servants and cleaning people? Or will those whine-prone teens and semi-adults actually have to deal with real issues?

Well, Was He a Gurl?

GLAAD is mad. Mad that American Idol's hosts Randy Jackson and Simon Cowell gave some "nasty" (SHOCK!) advice and said some "nasty" (DOUBLE SHOCK!) comments to contestant vying for a spot on the show.

In one instance, Simon suggested that a male contestant could actually make a lot of money by becoming a drag queen. I actually believe that was pretty sound advice. And since Simon is gay himself, I hold the source in high regard.

is he a girl?In the other instance, Randy asked a "male" contestant(pictured on right) if he was a girl. Now, to be fair, the contestant did bring up the subject by telling the judges that he is often confused for a girl (unless they edited the actual sequence of the conversation in a manipulative way). Well, I know everyone in my living room watching the show had the same question as Randy when the contestant came on screen: "Are you a girl?!"

While GLAAD has concerns, was the question Randy asked really that out of line? Rather than sitting there and remaining ignorant, he was right to ask a burning question that we all had. Sure, labels are bad horrible things. Unfortunately, the rest of us live in reality (not the GLAAD utopia) where it is important to know whether someone is a girl or a guy. I can only wonder what we would be talking about if the guy Randy questioned actually said: "Yes, I am a girl!" The headline would most certainly be: "GLAAD Lauds American Idol for Shining the Spotlight on Transgender People."

UPDATE: you have no idea what it took to get that picture... is it really necessary for the American Idol staff to post 731 pictures from one city?!--Rusty

Untwist Your Panties. We're Back, Bitches!

Alright bois and gurls, we totally ran off once again. We are such bad bloggers people! We promise, we made a New Year's Resolution to post at least one blog a day. Perhaps we can stop using the time on the toilet to read Entertainment Weekly and spend that time blogging. Now that's a picture to take with you for the rest of the day. But there is definitely a direct correlation between when we stopped blogging and when we installed the magazine rack in our apartment's bathroom. Bad twinks! Bad!

UPDATE: It is only half the the PoliBois team which has said addiction to toilet reading. He shall remain anonymous. - (it's graham)
