12th Century Homo-Erotic Poetry - Part 1

I recently did a research paper on the homo-erotic poets of the 12th century and many of them were churchmen - Bishops and Priests. It is my intention to pass on some of these poems for your reading pleasure. I will also post some excerpts from my paper about some of the reasons why this handful of men were able to be quite prolific in their homo-erotic writings back when the first crusades were going off to the Holy Land.Hilary the Englishman (c.1125 C.E.) was a priest who there is very little…See More

The Huffington Post | Gazelle EmamiFirst Posted: 10-21-09 08:56 PM | Updated: 10-21-09 09:31 PMPhilip Spooner is a lifetime Republican, World War II veteran and, to everyone's surprise, a gay marriage supporter. The 86-year-old gave a heartfelt speech in support of gay marriage to Maine's Judiciary Committee back in April, and the video has just now become an internet hit.Spooner's voice wavers often as he weaves his own life story into the speech, using his experience as a soldier as his main…See More

"The Nonexistent Language of Men’s Romantic Friendships of the 1800s"

Excerpt from page 3:

No Two Men Were Ever More Intimate

In 1837, Abraham Lincoln was not yet considering to run for President of the United States. This was a time when men and women did not socialize together as they do today. Men associated with other men and women associated with other women. During the time men spent together, their conversations were not always of the state of affairs of the nation or of the more intellectual discourse; they discussed sex and sometimes did it through the telling of jokes. Lincoln was noted for telling some “very nasty” sex stories to men that would be drawn to him on a regular basis (Katz 2001: 7). Part of the culture of the time and continued discourse that ensued around Lincoln at this time was with other young men and it was typically about women due to the lack their presence.

[I]n the early nineteenth century, physical intimacy between men may well have been normative, although the language men used to explore it was more physical than women's romantic discourse. Men seemed to be much more comfortable describing their physical relations, although they did so with a self-distancing jocularity, interspersed with longings for women's bodies. Nonetheless, no "deviant" identity characterized these early descriptions of male-male physical intimacy. (Freedman and D'Emilio 1990: 487)

HRC is using GOP Fear-Based Tactics!

Posted on August 11, 2010 at 5:37pm 1 Comment

I received a FEAR-BASED Appeal letter from HRC today! Until this court case came to a verdict, HRC did NOTHING to support this movement. NOW, they are using GOP "Scare Tactics" to mobilize the LGBT community to send them money to fight for same-sex marriage.



This really PISSES ME OFF! How is HRC any different than those who use fear to manipulate others to bend to their will?



"Fear knocked on my door and when I opened the door with faith, no one was there."… Continue
