Finally Free

Better Late Than Never - The Advocate" Talks about coming out later in life. The author of the article references Meredith Baxter's recent coming out and she theorizes the reasons why coming out later in life is becoming quite common.

She points to the fact that for those of us in their 50's (not me...not quite yet) homosexuality was a crime. And that the LGBT civil rights movement was basically in it's infancy back when those people were coming of age. There is no doubt that the movement has come a long way since the 1950's.

For me personally, I did what was expected of me. I got married and had children. I really didn't know anything else. And it took me a heck of a long time to even decide to do that. I knew I was different, but I couldn't figure out at the time what it was.

When my now ex-husband's mental break happened and it became clear over several years that he wasn't getting better, I began to examine my life and that's when I figured things out about myself. Once I came out to myself I was so much more comfortable in my own skin. When I started dating women I did so with so much more confidence than I ever had before. That first kiss sealed it for me. I knew instantly.

Out There Ads

PETA has been pretty out there with ads. Banned PETA Super Bowl Ad. PETA's Girl On Girl Make-Out Tour.

This is their latest:
Is this ad really going to make you stop buying leather if that's your thang?
Is this ad (which I would think some would find offensive because of the cross depicted hiding the model's naughty bits) going to make you adopt from a shelter rather than purchase from a reputable breeder (if that's what your intention is when adding a pet to your family)?

Does making controversial ads really help their cause?

There were also some 'colorful' ads depicting models in bikinis slathered in red paint, wrapped in plastic wrap like fresh meat and some other ads of similar ilk. Are those ads really going to recruit vegetarians? Seriously?

You thoughts?

SNL Tiger Wood's Skit

Anyone catch SNL this week? I admit, I watch the Wanda Sykes Show and then switch to SNL when Wanda is over. This week though, I missed about the first 1/2 hour of Wanda. Anyway, I missed the Tiger Woods's skit. Here it is, in case you missed it.

SNL is catching some heat for airing this 'domestic abuse' skit in an episode where Rihanna was the musical guest. While that's was an unfortunate choice, it certainly was topical. Not to mention hilarious...although as with most SNL skits they don't know when to end the skit.

What's your take? Did you find it offensive?

Meredith Baxter Comes Out

Well, not exactly...she was kind of pushed out by Perez Hilton. Not something that I condone. Perez Hilton on "The View" claimed that he didn't "out" her, he was "reporting". He claimed since she was living openly, seen in public, photographed in public with her partner of four years, Nancy Locke, being affectionate, that he was "reporting facts".

'Family Ties'' Meredith Baxter comes out on 'Today': 'I am a lesbian,' dating girlfriend Nancy Locke - New York Daily News. (Click this link and page down to view Meredith Baxter's awesome interview with Matt Lauer.) Meredith Baxter rocks! Kudos to her for saying that she hopes that her coming out let's people know that she is a lesbian and that the way that they vote on gay and lesbian issues will affect her. It's what I've said all along. Be out, be proud, when you let people know, they realize that gay and lesbian issues actually affect someone they know.

Hate Crimes Bill Signed Into Law

Obama Signs Hate Crimes Bill Into Law - Huffington Post

Check out Matthew Shepard Act for more details on the bill.

I have to say that I'm very pleased that President Obama came through on his promise.

"Representative John A. Boehner of Ohio, the House Republican leader, called the legislation radical social policy. “The idea that we’re going to pass a law that’s going to add further charges to someone based on what they may have been thinking, I think is wrong,” Mr. Boehner said."

I disagree with Representative Boehner (I wonder how that's pronounced, lol!). I think that any time someone is singled out and victimized because of their sexual orientation, it's wrong. We add further charges when a person is victimized because of their race or religion, it is only fair that we protect gays, lesbians, bi-sexuals and transgendered people in the same manner.


Please check out my post at Lola's Diner. I need to raise $250 to avoid foreclosure on my house. I'm selling Ad Space as well as Guest Blog Posts. I am also taking donations. Please check out my post and if you can help, I would be very grateful. Prayers are also welcome.

He often allegedly pushed around defendants and called them homophobic slurs. Attorneys say ten to twenty additional suits against Fiorito will be filed within the next several weeks."
The march will demand that the officer be put on desk duty until the misconduct charges and lawsuits are decided and demand that criminal charges be filed because "probable cause" exists.

Gay Exorcism

This is very disturbing. If you look closely at the 2nd video, it sometimes appears that the man standing has his hand on the victim's chest, other times, it appears to be on his throat. Yes, I said "victim". I think it's appalling that any 'supposed' church leader conduct themselves in this manner in the name of their church and exorcising gay demons.

The supposed "Full" version of the same gay exorcism:

Protect Maine Equality



On May 6, 2009 Maine ended discrimination in marriage for same-sex couples. This victory was the result of thousands of people who came forward to support marriage for all Maine families. The legislature and Governor followed the people's lead and passed this landmark legislation.

But the fight is not over. Opponents of marriage equality want to turn back the clock. They are working to place a measure on the ballot - modeled after California's Prop 8 - to take away the right of same-sex couples to marry in Maine.

This November, voters will be asked:

"Do you want to reject the new law that lets same-sex couples marry and allows individuals and religious groups to refuse to perform these marriages?"

Answer: Vote NO on 1.

Would You Give Your Employer A Photo Of Your Genitalia?

Trans Woman Sues Over Photo Request - Courtesy of The Advocate. This is even more ludicrous than the Gay Sex Causes Swine Flu story.

What job on earth could possibly necessitate submitting a photo of your genitalia to your employer? I doubt even establishments like the Mustang Ranch require such documentation.

How humiliated this woman must have felt. To me there is just no excuse for this kind of discrimination.

Gay Sex Causes Swine Flu - NOT!

Check this out: Doc Claims Gay Sex Causes Swine Flu - Courtesy of The Advocate.

Is this supposed 'Doctor' serious?
"According to Bernama, Malaysia’s state-run newspaper, Dr. V.M. Palaniappan, a practitioner of complementary therapy, lists avoiding masturbation and homosexual activities as preventative measures against H1N1."
"when one masturbates, or indulges in homosexual activity, his (her) body develops friction heat, and that produces acid, making the body hyperacidosed, giving burning sensation while urinating and toileting, and making the person an easy target for H1N1 infection."
Where did this 'Doctor' get his degree? A Cracker Jack box?

Time For A Question - From Ann

If you are the age group who grew up with John Hughes movies, did you have a favorite? If so, why? Do you still quote John Hughes movies? Give me a quote!

For my #1 favorite John Hughes movie and quote see Lola's Diner. My 2nd favorite John Hughes movie is The Breakfast Club (1985).

My favorite quote is:
Brian Johnson: "Saturday, March 24,1984. Shermer High School, Shermer, Illinois, 60062. Dear Mr. Vernon, We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did *was* wrong. But we think you're crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. What do you care? You see us as you want to see us - in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. You see us as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Correct? That's the way we saw each other at 7:00 this morning. We were brainwashed."



One of the WGN radio hosts is suggesting that as on homage to John Hughes, everyone introduce themselves this weekend, wherever they go as Abe Froman, Sausage King Of Chicago. I think it's brilliant.

So, hi, I'm Abe Froman, Sausage King Of Chicago and I'd like to thank you for stopping by FCR today.

We Are Obviously Not Equal

Another blogger invited their readers to sign up on MckLinky so she could see who was stopping by to read her blog. When I see these, I think it's the perfect opportunity to promote my blogs. It's like a Meme with a MckLinky, but only better because you just need to put your link and you don't need to do anything special. No questions to answer, no photos to post. You get the idea. Promotion...with no strings. Or so I thought. I put links for ALL 3 of my blogs:
Lola's Diner
Lola's Victory Garden
Fire Crotch Rocket
Shortly after entering them, I got this email:
Dear Lola,
I just wanted you to know that I removed one of your blogs from the link up today. This is a free country and I in no way want to tell you what to do. That is your business and your decision. I also don't want you to think that I don't respect you are in any way see you as less than me. I see you as equal with me in God's eyes - truly. But I felt, for me, the subtitle on your Fire Crotch Rocket blog was a little too much for my eyeballs and perhaps some of my other readers. Since it's my blog that's linking people up, I hope you aren't offended if I remove just that one link. I think your other blogs will be enjoyed by other XXXXXXX XXXXXXXX readers. Just a difference of opinion/conviction.
I hope you'll understand and will respect my decision. I don't want to offend you. I appreciate that you read my blog and am so very grateful for each one of my blogging chums.
Thank you for understanding Lola.
Have a lovely day.
We are obviously not equal if you feel you must censor your blog and remove my FCR blog from your list. None of my blogs contain objectionable material such as porn, naked photographs or adults only material.

Oh, and by the way...I hope your readers are enjoying My Ninth Conversation 10 Months 10 Lives Challenge. This post was scheduled for Friday, but I moved it up in response to your email.

Yes, I am a lesbian. Out and Proud and I am going to blog about fighting for my Civil Rights and the rest of the GLBT community. I post updates on our cause on FCR and I post and comment on articles that are contrary to our cause. I post wins and losses.

This is definitely a loss. Your loss. And all of your readers.

It's not a difference of opinion or conviction.
It's censorship. Pure and simple.

When Is It A Good Time To Go?

At the movies that is. You've got your king combo of a 64 ounce beverage and a bucket of popcorn. You've settled in, the previews are done and the movie begins. Oh-oh! You've got to go. You don't want to miss anything good in the movie. What do you do? Before the show, check out RunPee.Com, or order their Iphone Application for $0.99.

RunPee.Com tells you how far into the movie is the best time to go. It also give you the line in the movie at that point to give you a cue. It shows (by way of a text paragraph or two) what you've missed while you ducked out to use the facilities and lets you know how long it's ok to be gone so you don't miss anything really good.

I don't know that' I'd remember to check out RunPee.Com before I go to the show. The other issue is, how many other movie goers are using it? If 38 minutes into the movie is the best time to, ah er...go, will there be a mass exodus for the restrooms then?

I think the last time I made a dash for the bathroom at the movies was when my kids were little. I don't know that kids would actually wait until the best time though.

(Not a paid ad. I just came across this and thought it was interesting.)

So do you think you will use RunPee.Com?
Will you purchage the RunPee.Com Iphone app?
What do you think?

I know where I would rather be right now. I would love to be in Calistoga, CA enjoying Sparkling Wine at Mumm. Then (after the appropriate amount of time ;-> )drive along the winding roads with our top down and the tunes guiding us along. 'What's that? Another winery? Let's visit!' Ahhh, dreamy. Where would you rather be?

Gosh I would love to go on an R Family Vacation. It would be the perfect vacation. Anastasia and I could do adult stuff, while the kids were occupied with kid activities. I wouldn't even care where the cruise was to. I haven't had a real honest to goodness vacation since Disney World in like 1985. I'm way over due.

If I Could Blog Back Time Thursdays - Worst Dating Disasters

Come join me for this week's edition. Post yours and comeback and sign up with MckLinky.
This Thursday's topic is: Worst Dating Disaster -
Come on, even Lola has had a few dating disasters, what about you? Was it a blind date? Was it your date or the venue? Did you ever date that person again?
I've had a few doosies! One I can't even clean up to make it PG-13. Well, that and I don't want to divulge any ah, er, ahem, lesbian dating secrets, after having taken the oath and all.

Let me start out by saying nearly all of my dates had been blind dates, unless someone provided a photo. I always tried to not have any preconceived ideas and I had always been a person more interested in personality and what's on the inside. (Really!)

I just remembered one lesbian dating disaster that I can tell. This girl lived in Canada, flew down for a date. I met her online. She was a bit younger, but she said she liked that because she was "mature". Mmm hmm. We didn't exchange photos, just descriptions. I would know her at the Midway gate because she would be the one carrying a rose (so cliché!)

When we met, she gave me the once over...and not in a nice way. Up and down. The expression on her face said it all. She was not pleased. She was also extremely rude about it. She made a rude comment that I can't recall. (Yes, I probably blocked it out, it was that hurtful.)

I don't know why, perhaps I thought I should play U.S. ambassador and show this Canadian that not all Chicago lesbians are fat, ugly, ogres. My feelings were hurt, but I held it in and offered to show her the town. Why not? She came all that way. I was more than gracious.

We went to Navy Pier. She didn't say a word the whole ride from Midway. I tried to make conversation but she didn't even respond! Not a word. Even when I asked questions! When that failed, I resorted to tour guide mode. When we got there she used her cell phone to get the time for the next flight back. We walked around a few minutes and then left. She offered to call a taxi. I said I would drive her. (Why? I have no idea! I should have just left her there, but I'm not that kind of person. I invited her, I drove her there, I felt responsible for taking her back to the airport.) She stared out her window the whole ride back...seething. When she got out of the car she threw the roses I got her at me before she slammed the door. All I could think of was "I'm not really that awful looking, am I?" I was crushed.

And what, you may ask, did she look like? Younger than I thought, a bit too heavy eye make-up, black nail polish. Very goth. But that wasn't what made her unattractive. What made her unattractive was her look of disdain and her incredibly rude behavior. I don't believe I've ever met anyone so rude before...or since.

Please post your "Worst Dating Disaster" on your blog. Then come back to Lola's Diner and leave the actual post link here. Please grab the html code for If I Could Blog Back Time Thursdays! Badge HERE.

Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

With the MckLinky "guest book" as your guide use the title of the previous blog listed in MckLinky in a sentence, or in a short story. #2 uses #1's blog title, #3 uses #2's blog title, etc. Example: "When I need a laugh, or a shoulder to cry on, I know that I can go to Ann Again... and again." (You really can too :-> ) Be sure to add/insert a link to the blog as well. I've started it out this week. There are some incredible blog titles out there.

DC Domestic Partnership Judicial Determination Parentage Act of 2009

That's a mouthful isn't it? Lesbians Now Legally Parents After Insemination - The Advocate. It means that "Children born through artificial insemination can now legally have two female parents at birth". Adoption is no longer necessary for the female partner of the birth mother to be legally considered the child's parent.

And this is how it should be. How lucky to be domestic partners in Washington DC and expecting.

"The law is the first of its kind in the country. A similar law goes into effect in January 2010 in New Mexico. The D.C. Council voted earlier this year to recognize out-of-district same-sex marriages and expects to debate marriage equality later this year."

At Fire Crotch Rocket I post things that are a little more edgy. Definitely a lot more GLBT and sometimes more political. I've also been known to post oddities and unusual things I've found on the internet.

It's definitely a mixed bag here at Fire Crotch Rocket.

Time For A Question - From Ann

What is one of the strangest dreams you've ever had?
Well, for my dooziest dream, be sure to stop over at Lola's Diner. I've been trying to think of another. I did have one with Nuns, and I remember typing it up because it was so bizarre, but it's on the dead laptop. Grrr.

From time to time I have dreams of being chased, but they aren't always the same, the people and circumstances are different, but the general theme is me being in hiding and being chased. The best way to describe it would be Lola trapped in one of the books in the series "Left Behind" by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. I think "Desecration" may be the one. The one where they steal a Hummer and hide out in a Chicago high-rise (former insurance) building and they venture out periodically to gather other believers and bring them to safety. I don't really think I was Chloe, I think I would be more her husband Buck.

Every time I have one of these chasing dreams I end up actually screaming out in my sleep and scaring the bejesus out of Anastasia. I'm usually yelling "Helllllllp" and it sound like I'm in pain, but it's because I'm asleep and I'm really struggling to call out, so it's real guttural sounding.

Isn't weird how a book or movie can sometimes creep into your dreams?

What is a weird dream of yours? I bet there are some doozies!!

Man Acquitted Of Stabbing Gay Man 61 Times In Response to Unwanted Sexual Advances

He Stabbed man 61 Times, But Was Acquitted of Murder.

This is absurd. A straight man stabbed a gay man in 2008 in response to alleged sexual advances. How is this right? What kind of world do we live in that a human being can kill another human being because of alleged unwanted sexual advances. And he didn't just kill him, he stabbed him 61 freakin' times. WTF?

How does this kind of injustice happen?

How many women are in jail right now for killing a man for unwanted sexual advances?

Yoga Cures Homosexuality???

Have you seen this? Hindu Guru Claims Homosexuality Can Be 'Cured' With Yoga.
"The world's most popular Hindu guru, Swami "Baba" Ramdev, has claimed homosexuality can be "cured" by yoga in a petition to India's Supreme Court."

"It can be treated like any other congenital defect. Such tendencies can be treated by yoga, pranayam and other meditation techniques," he said.

"Pranayam are a series of breathing exercises which include hyperventilation, a slow release of breath while chanting "Om"."

"His followers have said there are particular yoga positions which also help prevent sexual urges."
I personally don't think chanting "Om" will cure anything, but then again I am not a professional guru and I don't play one on tv.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANN!

Time For A Question - From Ann

Seeing as I have Coldplay as my birthday party's "house band" (I live in my own little world, don't I?) I was wondering... what band, or artist, would you have play at your birthday party? I know this is going to be good.

I'm going to go with an artist that Anastasia and I always enjoy when she comes to Chicago. Melissa Ferrick. If you're not familiar with Melissa Ferrick, "Altogether, she received 12 years of formal music training, including two years each at the Berklee College of Music and the New England Conservatory of Music. Ferrick taught herself to play the acoustic guitar at Berklee, and dropped out after two years to pursue her music career." I've been to her CD signing at Borders on Broadway in Chicago and we've seen her at the Double Door, North Halsted Street Market Days and at Schuba's.





This is a link for Melissa Ferrick's "Drive". Kind of adult lesbian content. You've been warned. (No complaining that your eyes bled because you viewed this. That's why I didn't embed it.) Drive - Melissa Ferrick.

Auto Dealer Sues Man Who Stole His Wife

The 76 year old owner of one of the largest, possibly most recognized dealerships, Bob Rohrman, is suing a Chicago plastic surgeon for stealing his wife. Rohrman seeks $50,000 in damages. Rohrman's wife, Rhonda Kay Rohrman is 30 years his junior. Read about it here:

Auto Giant Rohrman Sues Plastic Surgeon, Alleges He Stole His Wife - Daily Herald

This is one of his commercials, in case you're wondering who his is. It's from January 2009 and that is him in the commercial.

How does one sue someone for stealing their wife? Doesn't that pretty much make you a laughing stock? And in this case, being that he is such a well known name in the Chicagoland area, it pretty much makes him a laughing stock in all of Chicagoland, don't you think? What are the grounds for this lawsuit? Seriously. Can't be theft, surely you can't sue for having someone "steal" your spouse, if one could do that the courts would be clogged full of such lawsuits.

And of course this begs the question, she's only worth $50,000? Ok, perhaps he's suing in Small Claims Court? Ok, maybe there is a limit on the type of suit he filed, still.

Oh, and check this out, the guy's got his own blooper reel. Seems to me this whole lawsuit thing should be included.


I guess there really is "Only 1 Bob Rohrman". Lol!

The Dallas Principles

The authors of The Dallas Principles would like to have as many Americans from as many different backgrounds as possible to sign on to these principles so we can help change the debate. All we're seeking is the same rights and responsibilities that non-LGBT people have. Nothing more, nothing less. Click on the "Join Here" button.



THE
PRINCIPLES
The following eight guiding principles underlie our call to action. In order to achieve full civil rights now, we avow:

1.Full civil rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals must be enacted now. Delay and excuses are no longer acceptable.

2.We will not leave any part of our community behind.

3.Separate is never equal.

4.Religious beliefs are not a basis upon which to affirm or deny civil rights.

5.The establishment and guardianship of full civil rights is a non-partisan issue.

6.Individual involvement and grassroots action are paramount to success and must be encouraged.

7.Success is measured by the civil rights we all achieve, not by words, access or money raised.

8.Those who seek our support are expected to commit to these principles.

FULL CIVIL RIGHTS GOALS
Being united by common principles and engaging in united action, we will achieve the following goals:
1. DIGNITY AND EQUALITY. Every lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender person has inherent dignity and worth, and has the right to live free of discrimination and harassment.
2. FAMILY. Every LGBT person has the right to a family without legal barriers to immigration, civil marriage or raising children.
3. ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY. Every LGBT person has the right to economic opportunity free from discrimination in employment, public housing, accommodation, public facilities, credit, and federally funded programs and activities.
4. EDUCATION. Every LGBT child and youth has the right to an education that is affirming, inclusive and free from bullying.
5. NATIONAL SECURITY. Every LGBT person should have the opportunity to serve our country openly and equally in our military and foreign service.
6. CRIME. Every LGBT person should enjoy life protected against bias crimes.
7. HEALTH CARE. Every person should have access to affordable, high quality, and culturally competent health care without discrimination.
CALL TO ACTION
1. We demand that government officials act now to achieve full civil rights without delay.
2. Our organizations and individuals need to develop a collaborative and revolutionary new organizing model that mobilizes millions of supporters through emerging web and phone technologies.
3. All LGBT individuals must accept personal responsibility to do everything within their power for equality and should get involved in the movement by volunteering, giving and being out.
4. We will hold elected officials and our organizations accountable for being transparent and achieving full civil rights by active participation when possible and active opposition when necessary.
5. Our allies need to be proactive in public support for full civil rights.
6. Every government measure that quantifies the US citizenry must permit LGBT individuals to self-identify and be counted in every way citizens are counted.
7. We demand that the media present LGBT lives in fair, accurate and objective ways that neither include nor give credence to unsubstantiated, discriminatory claims and opinions.

Chastity Soon To Be Chaz

Chastity Bono Sex Change

Shortly after her 40th birthday in March of this year, Chastity, known to friends and family as Chaz has begun undergoing a sex change.

Hopefully Cher will take this much better than initially when Chastity came out as a Lesbian.

How cool is it for the transgendered community to now count the son of their icon as one of their members.

Lesbian Prisoners Segregated

I bet the "lesbian prisoners" got your attention, didn't it? But seriously, this is all kinds of wrong.

Lesbian Prison Segregated Lesbians, Others.

Are they serious? They segregated "butch" looking women to break up relationships? How successful was that? I mean, how many butch/butch couples do you know? I've known a lot actually. Lesbian relationships aren't always butch/femme. And putting "butch" looking straight women with the "butch" lesbians? Just because they looked "butch", what? They might turn lesbian? I'm just trying to understand the thought pattern here. Oh yes, there was no actually thought put into it.

Then the guards taunted them and called them names?
"Separating women based on appearance, though, violates the Constitution's guarantees of equal protection and freedom of expression, said Helen Trainor, director of the Virginia Institutionalized Persons Project."
I smell a lawsuit.

Shocking Website Re-Direct

Everyone needs to read this:
Anti-Equality Domain Linked to KKK - from The Advocate.
"“NationalOrganizationForMarriage.com” into an Internet browser is an easy way to buy ceramic Ku Klux Klan figurines online."

"The National Organization for Marriage's actual website acts as an online fund-raising force and information center for opponents of marriage equality. But those looking to learn more without learning the real address first will be rerouted to KKK.com, where visitors are greeted by Pastor Thomas Robb's warning of an alleged race war against Caucasians."

"Theodore Trentman, the domain's owner and a self-described Web advocate, said it's no accident. Trentman bought the domain name on April 8, 2009, because he said the routing brought viewers to a closer representation of the certified 501(c)(4) nonprofit."

"Trentman said his decision to associate the KKK with the NOM came down to a personal feeling that the organization was representing a philosophy similar to the Knights Party -- something he felt obligated to call out."

"I think the National Organization for Marriage hosts a different message than they think they do," Trentman said. "The true message is one of hate, division, and discrimination."

"Trentman owns around 16 other domain names for similar purposes. Trentman, whose domain was discovered Tuesday morning by blogger Jeremy Hooper, said he buys names that he feels members of the gay community should own. With his activism, the fight for equal marriage is not only for a consensus of public opinion but also for the most logical online hosting of one’s own."

In case you didn't understand this the first read-through (like me) if you type in that website address, "NationalOrganizationForMarriage.com", you will be re-directed to "www.kkk.com".

Lesbian Foster Parent's Victory

West Virginia Court Sides With Gay Couple in Custody Case. According to this article "Current law, the court says, encourages adoption by qualified foster parents and either Kutil or Hess should be considered - and perhaps favored - as a prospective parent."

Congratulations to Kathryn Kutil and Cheryl Hess on their victory. They plan on pursuing adoption of the 18 month old foster child.

Miss CA's Mom, Gay?

Star Magazine is reporting that Miss California, Carrie Prejean's mom had a lesbian affair that ended the night of the Miss USA pageant. Miss California Shocker: Mom's Gay Affair - Star Magazine.

Ok, let's say it's true, do we really believe that Miss CA had no knowledge of it? I'm willing to bet her response to Perez Hilton was a calculated dig at her mother. That's just my opinion. I think that no matter how much you think that you are keeping something like that a secret, people likely do know and they just don't want to confront you or even mention it. Think about it, if you are gay or lesbian, when you came out, how many people you told said they already knew/figured it out about you?

Illinois Religious Freedom Protection And Civil Union Act (HB2234)

To those of you clicking over from my post at Lola's Diner - Groundbreaking Moment, thank you for stopping by.

Equality Illinois had sent me an email letting me know that "The end of the Spring session of the Illinois General Assembly is approaching. There is a good chance that we can pass the civil union bill before the end of the session." Equality Illinois asked that I send an email to my Respresentative to ask her to support this bill. Whenever I get these emails from Equality Illinois I always respond. Here is the reply I got from my Representative, Renee Kosel:
May, 2009

Dear Constituent:

I recently received your e-mail asking for my support of HB2234, legislation that creates the Illinois Religious Freedom Protection and Civil Union Act.

The majority of my constituents who have contacted me regarding this legislation, and civil unions in general, have been in opposition to the issue proposed in this legislation. I have serious misgivings about this bill and feel it ultimately would redefine marriage, which I consider to be between one man and one woman.

Thank you for caring enough about this issue to take the time to write to me.

Sincerely,
Renée Kosel
State Representative-81st District
Assistant Republican Leader
I really feel the need to craft a reply, however I feel it would fall on deaf ears. Her response angers me and I don't know if I can be as articulate as I know I can be. Part of me does not believe that more people who are opposed to this bill have contacted her.

How would you respond to this email? Please post your thoughts in the Comments Section.

Thank you!

Drew Peterson Arrested On Murder Charges in the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio. "'I guess I should have returned those library books,' a handcuffed Peterson cracked as he was being led into State Police headquarters."

Check out the mug shot in the article, doesn't it look like he's smirking?

Bail has been set at $20 million dollars.

View more news videos at: http://www.nbcchicago.com/video.

The Will County Special Grand Jury returned a 2 count bill of indictment today, charging 2 counts of first degree murder in the Kathleen Savio case. The case will be heard in Will County, unless a change of venue is granted. (Please call me for jury duty, please? Wow, would that be a fascinating case to be on. Call me crazy, but I always enjoy the prospect of jury duty and although I have been called to serve, I have never been assigned to a case.)

Drew is currently at the Will County Adult Detention Facility in Joliet. Perhaps he can share a cell with Christopher Vaughn?

Joe The Plumber Knows What Queer Is???

If you're stopping by FCR, chances are you aren't reading Christianity Today's Interview - Joe The Plumber. So please, feel free to click on the link, read and come right back.

Ok, done? Hmmm, my first comment about this article would be, who really cares about what Joe The Plumber says about Conservatism, Republicans, Evangelicals, or anything else for that matter?
Joe The Plumber said, "People don't understand the dictionary—it's called queer. Queer means strange and unusual. It's not like a slur, like you would call a white person a honky or something like that." Let's clarify for Joe The Plumber, just exactly what queer means, and before we do that, perhaps we should edjumicate him on the parts of language. Those being, Adjectives, Verbs and Nouns. this is from Dictionary.Com - Queer:
"–adjective
1. strange or odd from a conventional viewpoint; unusually different; singular: a queer notion of justice.
2. of a questionable nature or character; suspicious; shady: Something queer about the language of the prospectus kept investors away.
3. not feeling physically right or well; giddy, faint, or qualmish: to feel queer.
4. mentally unbalanced or deranged.
5. Slang: Disparaging and Offensive.
a. homosexual.
b. effeminate; unmanly.
6. Slang. bad, worthless, or counterfeit.
–verb (used with object)
7. to spoil; ruin.
8. to put (a person) in a hopeless or disadvantageous situation as to success, favor, etc.
9. to jeopardize.
–noun
10. Slang: Disparaging and Offensive. a homosexual, esp. a male homosexual.
11. Slang. counterfeit money."
Joe, you're completely right, queer is not like a slur, it is a slur. Note that I've bolded "disparage" in each definition. From Dictionary.Com, slur means:
"–verb (used with object)
1. to pass over lightly or without due mention or consideration (often fol. by over): The report slurred over her contribution to the enterprise.
2. to pronounce (a syllable, word, etc.) indistinctly by combining, reducing, or omitting sounds, as in hurried or careless utterance.
3. to cast aspersions on; calumniate; disparage; depreciate: The candidate was viciously slurred by his opponent."
In the article, Joe The Plumber stated "I've had some friends that are actually homosexual. And, I mean, they know where I stand, and they know that I wouldn't have them anywhere near my children." That's too bad really, that he feels that he wouldn't want homosexuals near his children. Perhaps Joe has the word "homosexual" confused with the word "pedophile"? Or does he think that homosexuality is catchy, like the flu?

Again, why does anyone care what Joe The Plumber (is he even a plumber yet?) thinks?

A Different Kind Of Party

I admit to being somewhat addicted to certain magazines. I have to have "The Advocate", that’s a given. But I also have to have "Psychology Today". I also will admit, only in certain company, to an addiction to women’s magazines. You know the ones, "Redbook", "Women’s Day". Not so much a fan of "Better Homes & Gardens", but in a pinch at a doctor’s office, I’ll pick it up. Even if it is 3 years old. What can I say, I’m a captive audience. I'm addicted to the women's magazines for recipes and articles on organization. (That's a whole different blog post topic!)

Some magazines I’ll read the hardcopy, others I’ll read online, some both. See what I’m saying about addiction? Anyway, I was scanning the articles at "Psychology Today", and found this article "Parlor Game Or Psychiatric Technique? – Lipsology".

The article described Lipsology as "the discovery of psychological characteristics revealed through lip shapes as viewed on a paper kissed by a person wearing lipstick (or having kissed a person wearing lipstick). The resulting imprints, given names such as "gerbil balls" "angel wings" "mother nature's lines" "peppers" and "zingers" are supposed to indicate a wide variety of information, health, psychological predispositions, even some spiritual interventions ( such as having an angel on your right or left shoulder)."

This isn’t a paid post, and I’m not joking. Apparently people have parties to have personal analysis’ done. Kind of like having a Palm Reader come to your home for a party to do palm readings.

I wanted to know more, so I googled, "Lipsology" and found The Official Lipsology Website. The tagline on the website is "Lipsology – The Art Of Lip Print Reading By Jilly Eddy." Apparently she is an "expert in lip print interpretation".

Who knew one could be an expert in interpreting something that my Mother did after applying lipstick and tossed in the trash? (Blotting freshly lipsticked lips with tissue.)
Ms. Eddy is "the world’s first Lipsologist". Ms. Eddy is a "Seattle-based entertainer who fascinates audiences of all ages with her remarkably precise personality profiles based on her self-developed system of Lipsology—The Art & Science of Reading Lip Prints." Ms. Eddy "has spent nearly 30 years collecting and analyzing more than 10,000 lip prints including those of Johnny Cash and author Jean Auel."

Ms. Eddy actually books events and brings her own supplies, which include "lipsticks, mirrors, Kleenex, cold cream, pens and personalized 'Kiss Cards' for your guests to make their lip prints on and keep as a souvenir." Because, you know you want a souvenir.

What will you find out from her analysis? Ms. Eddy "analyzes and interprets according to 25 categories and more than 100 subcategories. Findings can determine anything from the fact that you are a great negotiator with high-end champagne tastes or perhaps that you need to pay special attention to certain health issues."

In case you’re wondering, she does lip imprint analysis at all sorts of events, including, but not limited to: Anniversary Parties, Baby/Bridal Showers, Bachelorette Parties, Bar & Bat & B’nai Mitzvahs, Barbeques, Birthdays Parties, Business Launches/Staff Meetings, Conferences, Conventions, Employee Parties/Picnics, Girl’s Night Out, Housewarmings, Weddings.

Sounds slightly more entertaining than a Palm or Tarot Reading.

What do you think?
