Joan Rivers is on Life Support

Joan Rivers is on life support and sadly, needs the machines to breathe.

The family is still hopefully, but they will have to decide how much longer Joan will be depending on the machines.

It's very interesting how all of this happened. Joan went for throat surgery, and then this happens. It's crazy to think about, right? The legendary entertainer is fighting for her. I wouldn't want to make that decision on my own mother, so I can't imagine what her daughter is going through.

Melissa Rivers released this statement:
"I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother," the statement read. "She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers."

Michael Sam cut from the St. Louis Rams

Well, it happened.

Michael Sam was cut from the St. Louis Rams (Thank Hera, I didn't get that jersey).

OutSports report:

The next 24 hours will determine Sam's immediate NFL fate. The other 31 NFL teams can put in a claim for his services and Sam would go to the team that claimed him first. If Sam is unclaimed, there is a strong chance he will be signed as one of 10 practice squad players by the Rams.

If that happens, Sam can practice with the Rams but not play in a game. For that to happen, he will have to be placed on the active 53-man roster, something that can occur, for example, with injuries to other players. Practice squad players earn a minimum $6,300 per week they are on the team. This amounts to $107,100 if he lasts all 17 regular season weeks on the squad. Had Sam made the Rams roster, he would have earned $420,000 this season. He gets to keep the $45,000 signing bonus he was given after the draft.

The defensive end always had an uphill battle making the team since the Rams' strength is along the defensive front. Going into training camp, the first eight slots on the line were all but set, leaving one spot. Sam lost out to undrafted rookie Ethan Westbrooks, who by various reports had a better overall camp and can also play tackle in addition to end.

Minor setback, I hope Michael is picked up soon.

Gay Teen who was attacked by his Family, speaks out

The video that I posted the other day, turns out to be real. Daniel Pierce was attacked by his family once he decided to come out.

The video went viral and LGBT community came out to support him. A close friend started a gofundme page to help Daniel out with expenses.

So far, he has raised over $90K. Here's more from Atlanta's 11Alive:
"I thought for myself, for my own protection if something were to happen it would be best to have it on video. I just hit record. I just hit camera and hit record. I just know that I did it for my protection and it kind of all went from there, and the video really speaks for itself," Pierce said.

From there, more than 3 million views on YouTube(Warning: video contains profanity and sensitive material) in just a few days. Television networks, websites and social media sites around the globe have published it. That Georgia teenager talked only to 11Alive's Jeremy Campbell about why he record the video.

"What I hope people take away from watching that is it still happens. A lot of people don't realize that it happens. They see all the positive videos and the negative video never gets seen so if one family maybe watches it and maybe changes their mind in how they are going to handle it about their son or daughter coming out, one family and I will be happy. I want to education people on the issue because it is something going on," Pierce said.

Michael Sam is very confident on making the Team

Michael Sam has been doing pretty well in the preseason games. The final cut will be tomorrow and Michael feels really good about making the team.

Michael said:
“I’m very confident. I’m going to sleep really well tonight and I’m very confident I’m going to be on a team, the Rams or any other team in the NFL.”
Here's more:
Sam has played well throughout the preseason and played well again on Thursday night against the Dolphins, leading the team with five solo tackles. Unfortunately for Sam, the Rams are deep on the defensive line and won’t be an easy roster for any seventh-round draft pick to make. Sam is widely viewed as competing with fellow rookie defensive end Ethan Westbrooks for the final roster spot, and Westbrooks had a very good preseason finale, with a sack, a tackle for loss and two quarterback hits.
Good luck, Michael.

Because again, I grew up around a lot of that and that's the world that embraced me first, so that I've never fully gathered.

Michael Egan drops the Lawsuit Against Bryan Singer

The sexual abuse suit against Bryan Singer has been dropped.

The accuser, Michael Egan, dropped out due to the lack of counsel. His attorney, Jeff Herman, left the case in late July. Jeff said that relations with his Michael had “deteriorated.”

Here's more from Variety:
Herman, who staged several high-profile news conferences in April, withdrew from the case shortly after a Buzzfeed report that he and Singer’s lawyer, Martin Singer, had agreed to settle the lawsuit for $100,000 but Egan refused.

Herman’s firm filed one other suit against Singer — by an unidentified British plaintiff — but that case was voluntarily withdrawn in July.

In a statement to Variety last month, Martin Singer (no relation to Bryan Singer) said that “Bryan and his team will continue to fight to clear his name and intend to pursue charges of malicious prosecution against Egan.” He called Egan and Herman’s case “an attempted shakedown of Bryan Singer.”

Ancier filed a malicious prosecution suit in June against Egan and Herman.

Egan made four claims in each suit — intentional infliction of emotional distress, assault, battery and invasion of privacy by unreasonable intrusion. Each of the suits recounts in explicit detail the sexual acts that allegedly took place between Egan and each of the men.
Is this mess over? To be honest, I'm not sure.

Brian Brown whines over the 9th Circuit Court Smackdown

Of course, Brian was going to cry about NOM's big loss. But he shouldn't be shocked about it, they have been on this losing streak for awhile.

Brian said on his blog
"We are of course disappointed with the Ninth Circuit's decision today. The Ninth Circuit did not reach the appeal of the denial of motion to intervene, holding instead that even if NOM had been allowed to intervene on behalf of its members (including Oregon voters, wedding services providers, and a county clerk), it had no standing to appeal the judgment below even though the elected officials of the state refused to provide any defense of the marriage amendment adopted by a strong majority of Oregonians.

"We believe that the decision conflicts with a prior Ninth Circuit opinion specifically recognizing that a County Clerk with the duty to issue marriage licenses likely would have standing to intervene and appeal an adverse judgment. NOM alleged under oath that it had among its members just such a county clerk, and it sought to intervene on the clerk's behalf under the Supreme Court's well-established precedent in the case of NAACP v. Alabama allowing membership organizations to pursue the interests of their members when there are substantial hurdles to the members litigating in their own name, such as the real threats of harassment and violence that have been manifested elsewhere in the country around the marriage issue. Because of that conflict, we will certainly be exploring whether to file a petition for rehearing en banc with the full Ninth Circuit or whether we will seek review in the Supreme Court itself.

"Ultimately, though, NOM remains concerned that a sovereign act of the people of Oregon went entirely undefended by the elected officials of Oregon, an abdication of duty that resulted in the long-standing understanding of marriage in Oregon being rewritten by a single federal court judge. The policy fight over the definition of marriage is something that should ultimately be resolved by the people, not unelected judges. For now, Oregonians have been denied their voice on that important policy issue, and that is truly regrettable."

The court basically slammed the door in NOM's face. Now, it's up to them if they want to take the case to the Supreme Court.

Will NOM appeal? Who knows, but it's clear, this is just one out of many defeats in their foolishness.

If they don't appeal to the Supreme Court, all threats against marriage equality is done.

Michael Sam is still on the St. Louis Rams' roster.

Sports experts said that Michael really shined after he posted two sacks against the Cleveland Browns last weekend. So far, during the preseason games, Michael has five tackles and three sacks.

So, I guess he's almost there. Keep trucking, Michael.

Three quarters of Whites don’t have any Friends of Color

In not so surprising news, another study has revealed another interesting bit of info.

White folks have less friends of color. I'm not not shocked, but in an ever-changing society I thought things were changing... Hmmm.

This study comes from Robert Jones of the Public Religion Research Institute
Let's consider the average American white American and the average American black American, and let's say, for simplicity's sake, that each of them have 100 friends. If you were to break down their respective friend networks by race, they would look something like this

In a 100-friend scenario, the average white person has 91 white friends; one each of black, Latino, Asian, mixed race, and other races; and three friends of unknown race. The average black person, on the other hand, has 83 black friends, eight white friends, two Latino friends, zero Asian friends, three mixed race friends, one other race friend, and four friends of unknown race.

To put it another way: Blacks have ten times as many black friends as white friends. But white Americans have an astonishing 91 times as many white friends as black friends.

There are a number of factors driving these numbers. Simple population counts are one of them: there are more white people than black people in the U.S., so it makes sense that the average American is going to have more white friends than black friends.
Interesting, but sad info read about.


New Poll: LGBT Americans have a Lower Well-Being than Straight Folks

A new Gallup poll claims that our well-being, as LGBT people, is not so great.

Here's the news:

Americans who identified as LGBT had an average Well-Being Index score of 58, compared with 62 for non-LGBT people. As Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index researchers also pointed out, that difference held true even after gender, age, race, educational attainment and other factors were taken into account.

Among the report's other findings: 35 percent of LGBT adults are thriving socially, compared with 41 percent of non-LGBT adults, while LGBT Americans are also 10 percentage points less likely to be thriving financially than their non-LGBT counterparts.

Also, LGBT women had a Well-Being Index score of 57, compared with 63 for non-LGBT women, while men who identified as LGBT had an average of 59, while those who did not identify as LGBT had an average of 61.

Gay Bathhouses are Fading Away

Gay Bathhouses used to be the thing back in the day. You wanted to meet gay men, you went to the baths. But now, the bathhouses are dying out.

Here's more
Gay bathhouses that once remained in the shadows to stay in business are now seeking attention to keep their doors open.

Some are doing aggressive online advertising and community outreach. Others tout their upscale amenities like plush towels and marble baths. A bathhouse in Ohio has even added hotel rooms and a nightclub.

Gone are the days when bathhouses drew crowds just by offering a discreet place for gays to meet, share saunas and, often, have sex.

"The acceptance of gays has changed the whole world. It's taken away the need to sneak into back-alley places," said Dennis Holding, 75, who owns a Miami-based bathhouse.

In the heyday of bathhouses in the late 1970s, there were nearly 200 gay bathhouses in cities across the U.S., but by 1990, the total had dropped to approximately 90, according to Damron, the publisher of an annual gay travel guide. In the last decade, bathhouses, including ones in San Diego, Syracuse, Seattle and San Antonio, have shut down and the total nationwide is less than 70. Most patrons are older.

Hollywood Spa — one of the largest bathhouses in Los Angeles, a city regarded as the country's bathhouse capital — closed in April. Owner Peter D. Sykes said fewer customers and rising rent put an end to four decades in business.

"Bathhouses were like dirty bookstores and parks: a venue to meet people," said Sykes, who still owns the smaller North Hollywood Spa. "Today, you can go to the supermarket."
The North Hollywood spa is just up the street from me. Just think, it is one of the few left in this country.

A lot of horrid people left racist statements on the page, calling us animals and savages.

Many folks called GoFundMe out, saying these statements and the campaign goes against their own policy about supporting hate and racial intolerance. GoFundMe did respond to those complaints saying:
“Some donors’ comments have contained content that is in violation of GoFundMe’s terms and have been removed accordingly.”
 But they also said:
“The content of the campaign itself is not in violation of GoFundMe’s terms of service.”
As of now, Darren Wilson's campaign has raised over 250K. Many folks are threatening to boycott GoFundMe.

Personally, someone should hack their IP addresses and send them viruses.

Sloppy Side-Chick V. Stiviano claims Donald Sterling is Gay

V. Stiviano is really trying to keep her 15 minutes.

Now, she's claiming that she never slept with Donald Sterling and he's gay.

Yep, she said that... Here's more:
TMZ Sports has obtained the lawsuit -- which Stiviano filed in response to Shelly's allegations that V. accepted cars and property from Donald that he didn't have the authority to give her.

In the new docs, Stiviano argues that the items in question were given to her in exchange for being Donald's "beard" -- and she insists Shelly knew about it.

Stiviano states ... she was "not ever a sexual partner of Donald T. Sterling" and "believes that [Sterling] is a homosexual and enjoys sexual acts and or sexual congress with males."

In the legal doc, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Stiviano says Shelly was "acutely aware of [Donald's] sexual orientation and condoned same as well as acknowledged and approved [Donald's] gifts of money [to Stiviano]."

Stiviano also says the gifts she received were NOT community property -- but rather Donald's separate property.

Stiviano is also suing Shelly and Donald for defamation -- claiming they slandered her in the media by calling her a thief and saying she embezzled money and property from Donald. She's demanding no less than $10 MILLION.

She is the worst. 10 million? Girl please, you were the side ho. The minute you got involved with a married man you welcomed defamation.

V. have a seat.

Federal Judge strikes down Florida Gay Marriage Ban

This is it!

A federal judge has struck down the gay marriage ban in Florida!

Here are the details:
U.S. District Judge Robert L. Hinkle in Tallahassee ruled Thursday that the ban added to Florida's constitution by voters in 2008 violates the 14th Amendment's guarantees of equal protection and due process.

Hinkle issued a stay delaying the effect of his order, meaning no marriage licenses will be immediately issued for gay couples.

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi has appealed the previous rulings striking down the ban in Broward, Miami-Dade, Monroe and Palm Beach counties.
The judge will allow time for an appeal, but it's just a waste of time.

In LA: An 8-year-old Boy killed for Playing with Dolls

This is so sad to post.

8-year-old Gabriel Fernandez was abused to death by his mother and her boyfriend. The reason, because he liked playing with dolls. The way they killed him is way worse than you ever could imagine. According to the reports, they used pepper spray on him, forced Gabriel to eat his own vomit and locked him in a cabinet.

Here's more
Fernandez, 30, and her boyfriend, Isauro Aguirre, 34, are in jail awaiting trial on charges of capital murder and a special circumstance of torture. They have pleaded not guilty. Attorneys representing the couple could not be reached for comment Monday. Because of repeated delays in setting a preliminary hearing, prosecutors convened a grand jury. The indictment was returned July 28.

Fernandez and Aguirre deliberately tortured the boy to death, hiding their tracks with forged doctor's notes and lies to authorities, Deputy Dist. Atty. Jonathan Hatami told the grand jury. "For eight straight months, he was abused, beaten and tortured more severely than many prisoners of war," Hatami said.

The abuse worsened in the months leading up to Gabriel's death, according to testimony from two of his siblings, both of whom are minors. They said Gabriel was forced to eat cat feces, rotten spinach and his own vomit. He slept in a locked cabinet and wasn't let out to go to the bathroom. Fernandez and Aguirre called Gabriel gay, punished him when he played with dolls and forced him to wear girls' clothes to school, the siblings said.

Fernandez and Aguirre hit Gabriel with a belt buckle, a metal hanger, a small bat and a wooden club, Gabriel's brother said. Their mother once jabbed Gabriel in the mouth with a bat and knocked out several teeth, according to testimony.
If found guilty, I want them to suffer.

Huge Racial Divisions in Reactions to the Michael Brown Shooting

Finally, there is a poll that points out the racial divide in the Michael Brown incident. The new poll was conducted by the Pew Research Center during Aug. 14-17 among 1,000 adults. The info was surprisingly, not shocking, but disheartening to read.

Here are some key findings:

  • 37% of whites think the ‪‎Michael Brown‬ shooting "raises important issues about race."
  • 47% of whites think "race is getting more attention than it deserves."
  • 33% of whites say the police have gone too far
  • 32% of whites say the police response has been about right
  • 35% of whites offer no response

So, the 'Real' KKK are not supporting the KKK fund-raising efforts for Darren Wilson?

The New Empire Knights of the Ku Klux Klan are raising money to support Officer Darren Wilson, the cop who killed Michael Brown.

On their website, they said:
“With the police state in Ferguson, we will be holding our fundraiser in Sullivan City, MO,” the announcement said. “Donations of $10 and up. All money will go to the cop who did his job against the negro criminal.”
 However, the 'real' KKK doesn't want anything to do with this:
The fundraising email is actually in violation of the traditional Klan constitution, according to another Imperial Wizard, Frank Ancona. Ancona leads the Traditionalist American Knights, one of the largest branches of the KKK, approaching 10,000 members in the lower 48 states. Their headquarters are in Missouri.

The KKK is split into many smaller subdivisions, explained Ancona, and often times, banished members of a larger branch will attempt to start their own. Ancona believes this is the case with Murray, who is not even known to the Traditionalist American Knights.

"He basically made up his own name," Ancona said, explaining that Murray may not even be on his birth certificate. "We are a registered organization. We have a charter with the state... Half of them don’t have the rituals for our ceremonies."
This Wizard says that this New Empire Knights may have just one member and their leader, Charles Murray' is a scam artist.

I tell you this is going in a messy direction.

Michael Brown was shot:

  • Twice in the head
  • In the palm of his hand
  • Once in the chest
  • Twice in the arm

Gay Rights Ally Chris Kluwe and Minnesota Vikings have reached a Deal

Chris Kluwe and the Minnesota Vikings reached a deal.

A while ago, Chris was suing the team over his release. But they worked something out, now Chris will drop the lawsuit.

Here's more:
No financial terms of the settlement were available because the details have yet to be finalized.

Kluwe argued that his release was based on his support for gay marriage and that special teams coordinator Mike Priefer had directed disparaging remarks toward him. The Vikings contended that Kluwe’s release was based solely on his performance.

“The parties intend to hold a joint press conference early next week to make public the terms of a settlement arrived at late last night,” Halunen told USA Today.

Priefer received a three-game suspension, which will begin when the regular season opens, and he will donate $100,000 to gay rights charitable and educational organizations. The ban could be reduced to two games upon completion of anti-harassment, diversity and sexual-orientation sensitivity training.
