Friday’s News Briefs

So what happened this week?

I would say that the internet lost its shit over some horribly offensive comments made by a reality star… but none of those things are news. Though I’m a fan of a good-old-fashioned internet evisceration, I’ll leave it to the amazing and talented Maureen Johnson who offers this lesson.

…this isn’t tolerance. If you think this looks like tolerance, you do not know what tolerance looks like.

The one encouraging part of all this was that I didn’t have to unfollow or unfriend anyone because of it, which is great.

A gay magazine named a totally not gay guy in a funny hat it’s person of the year for essentially saying that he wasn’t going to judge. It’s a charming sentiment. Naturally people had things to say and most of them were fairly critical. I appreciate that the leader of the church has made progress… but must we, the proud homosexuals with our unstoppable secret-agenda, fangirl so relentlessly over non-judgement.

Speaking of people who aren’t gay, Sherlock and Watson were asked to read out some fan-fic embarrassing the author, the actors, and everyone really. So from now on just keep fan-fic where it belongs in your bedroom and on my kindle… and because no one would admit to asking for it but still wants it, here is some fan-fic of republicans.

Early in the week, Presidents of different countries are falling over themselves to not go to Russia for the Olympics. Now President Obama is sending a super gay delegation – featuring recently out Brian Boitano. I’m hoping it’s a big FFFFFFFFUUUUUUU to their anti-gay legislation.

Young gays are getting their own social network (and it’s not YouTube).

And now a tumblr which draws attention to the really serious problem of guys pretending to be geeks for attention. tumblr_moqb1bSLsY1swa2b7o1_500
