Obama’s Democrats support LGBT rights in convention first

It’s amazing that this video was show at the Democratic National Convention, and viewed by millions on television. I’ve never been excited about voting in a national election before.

Mormon Undies as Fetish Wear

It seems almost too good to be true. With Republican presidential candidate Mittens Romney in the race against Obama, there’s a growing awareness of the Mormon “faith.” And now perverts everywhere can order genuine Mormon underwear from this website (mens and womens available). What’s up with the over the (male) nipple stitching?! Check out www.MormonSecret.com. Via Dan Savage.

President needs pants that fit “where my nuts hang… back to my bunghole.”

Unbelievable audio of President Lyndon B Johnson on the phone with his tailor’s son, belching and talking about his nuts and bunghole. Apparently LBJ was concerned about his change and knife falling out of his pocket, and the crotch was cutting into his jewels like a wire fence.

My advice to the current President Obama: stop wearing those god-awful “Mom Jeans.” What’s with hetero men and their fear of showing their butts or crotches. Might as well wear a burka, no?!

“Obama visiting Japan as relations stiffen”

obamas

Relations stiffen? My morning coffee nearly flew out of my mouth reading the title of this New York Times online article about Obama’s visit to Japan. Normally this blog stays glued to what some might consider the frivolous topic of male vanity in its many many manifestations.

But I could not resist the topic of Japan’s new-found independence in foreign policy after reading this title, with its hautiness and resentment mixed with a “stiffening” attraction. It seems to suggest, “I hate you, and you’re turning me on.”

Apparently the US felt extremely comfortable with the LDP’s nearly 50 years rule and are chafing under new policies brought by current Prime Minister Hatoyama, whose DP won in a landslide last August. Renegotiating what the US calls “the Alliance” may mean Japan no longer accepts military occupation and the assumption that Japan will join each and every US war.

Despite Hatoyama’s clear campaign calls for a more independent Japan, the US government and foreign policy experts claim that the new Japanese government is “inexperienced,” unsure of what it wants, and perhaps not serious about its campaign promises. In fact, I think the US is flipping over Japan’s re-opening Okinawa base discussions, ending the refueling mission in support of the permanent US war effort in Afghanistan, and new overtures to Asia that do not include the US.

There have even been ominous reports of arriving late to a state dinner (the Hatoyamas in Pittsburgh) and skipping a welcome dinner at the Japan Defense Ministry (Robert Gates, US military chief).

It is sad how little change Obama has created. Not so different from Bush’s economic team and his military policies that insist on servile allies and endless foreign wars. But maybe the “stiffening relations” can in the long run reduce some tensions.

On second thought I am not sure this post strayed too far from male vanity. What do you think?

Queer March on Washington DC

Queer march on Washington DC

Sunday was a huge queer march in Washington DC demanding equality and action by Nobel prize winner Barack Obama. The rally, the first in almost ten years, was organized by a younger generation using social media tools like Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and blogs.

Here’s Lady Gaga’s moving speech in front of the Capitol, ending with “Bless God, Bless the Gays!”
