    Speaking of Australia, has anyone been made aware of this video from Australian advocacy group GetUp! about supporting marriage equality?

    It's a great video that, I think, accurately captures something that is missing from other commercials like this: it reflects the struggles of being in a relationship; it doesn't really matter if the guys are gay or not. It might be about supporting marriage equality, but the range of situations and emotions shown can be easily applied to any marriage, which I think makes it more effective.

    Also, notice that YouTube has a symbol by it's logo signifying today as the first of World AIDS Day.

    Its just nice to see some support.

    theatre, transcending sex and gender barriers, links to amusing stories...

    Yep, you're definitely going to fit in quite well, here.

    I know Spookz and myself do, but does anyone else follow Khaos? It's probably the best (or close to) LGBT webcomic I have read that's not explicitly... uh... explicit. The others I know are for more of a... hirsute taste, and I'm not sure if y'all want to know how many bear comics I look at.

    which leads me to:


    What is your favourite LGBT webcomic (or just favorite altogether)?

    I find it hard to choose. Blur The Lines is full of bear humor mixed with self-mockery. The aforementioned Khaos is very drama-filled, and draws attention to serious issues and a need for unity. The forums there are pretty rad, too. Bear With Me, while funny, is less outright funny and more dramatic and serial that Blur the Lines. It has one-offs dotted into the clear continuity of the main storyline, and the art is constantly evolving. Which leads me to the last subject here, Questionable Content. Clear continuity, evolving art, and a lot of geeky humor. Also, something about music or something. The non-gay one of the pack. I know, I have a hard time choosing.

    same here, what most people forget, is that it is a disadvantage for both genders. It isn't helping anyone, it only making life harder :S.

I do not know anything of the elderly's opinion, but it seems to me as though the government is the only thing in the way at this time. Unfortunately I don't see this changing anytime soon, due to the fact that there are essentially two parties (at least, only two that stand a chance), Being Labor and Liberal, both of which are against gay marriage at this point in time.
    Your Liberal party doesn't support gay marriage?? ... surely supporting gay marriage would actually be a very Liberal thing to do if I understand anything about politics correctly.

    I also enjoyed the article about "X"; bascially underlines the point that gender stereotypes are silly and shouldn't be as much of an obstacle. It actually reminds me of a newspaper story I read a while ago where a boy wore a skirt to school because the headteacher banned boys from wearing shorts.

    Damn, I haven't been here in a long time, has anything changed, is the Ancient Mariner still running things on this forum as rickety as ever?

"I'm sorry, I'm not comfortable meeting someone for coffee and then going back to their place to have a 3-some with another random guy I've never met before" is a pretty resonable excuse. Maybe not to the whores, but to normal people like us.

    And if the whole thing goes to shit then does it really matter anyways? It sounds like you don't want to be in a relationship with him after learning who he really is, so does it matter if he's put-off by the whole situation?
    Well, I'm obviously not going to do it. I'm not easily pressured by anyone. xD It's more of an, "oh, oops! You know that thing I promised? Yeah, well, you're gonna be really disappointed." Lol. I really don't even care if someone's been around, like I said - the only thing I care about is how completely moronic I feel for misinterpreting something and the guilt/shame that comes to unknowingly agreeing with something like that when I refuse to move so quickly in a relationship. xD Gives off a wrong message. Honestly, he seems like a great guy; I wouldn't be against a relationship if things continued the way they have. Though, there's a close friend of mine I've been making over the past half a year or so who's gay, and we hung out and went to lunch today. He was very opposed to me being with him, but I'm starting to wonder if it's for other reasons. That just makes things even more complicated, since he's really sweet. Dx

    Oh, rants about myself. I'm really not that interesting.

    Yay! I'm a senior in High School as well. c: It's so fun - though I agree with you, wayyyy too much to do. I picked a wrong year to not be at the high school hahah. Just think, though - winter break is literally right around the corner, and if you want to go to the party, go. You deserve a break. Just don't compromise yourself. If you don't want to drink, don't. Some of us are just as exciting when sober. I have a feeling you are, too!

    I don't understand why this affected you so much, honestly. I'm sorry, but if you go out for coffee with someone and a 3-way back at your place is implied, yeah, you're kind of a slut. And I'm not some innocent, chaste person either. I just have standards, I guess :/

    Well I hope everything works out. And what do you mean by 'making over'? Like socially, physically, what?

    Wow, that's a great video. It really captures everything about a relationship, and how they're mostly the exact same gay or straight.

    I meant it more along the lines of "I've been making a really close friend for the last half a year." Guess my phrasing was awkward - sorry. :P

    I believe what Moogles is saying is "so what?"
    So what if someone likes sex? So what if they have casual three-ways? So what if they get around? Does that make them any less of a person, any less empathetic towards their fellow man, woman, or X? And does calling them a slut or a whore really do anything but hurt, insult, and possibly alienate them? And why exactly is sex with many partners supposed to be so bad, anyway? So what?

    I have standards, too. I play it safe with sex outside my relationship. I don't do just anyone or anything. I just happen to like variety. I'm not built monogamously, not everyone is.

    By the way, I've skipped the coffee before in lieu of a shower. With one of the two guys. Showers have never been so fun.

    It's been a while since I was here. How are everyone?

    I feel like those zombies from The Walking Dead serie on Tv lately:
    My neck is stiff and hurts, I have a bad headache, soar throat, and I get dizzy when I move my head.
    I am also insainly tired all the time.

    Yes, winter break is right around the corner, and that's what scares me! I have so much to do before then and I honestly don't know how to get it all done in time.

    Also, I'm a very quiet drunk, so that might be the reason. But honestly, I just really don't have a taste for alcohol.

    Well you're shaming someone for exploring their sexuality. It's not your place to do so. I mean, sure, you may not be into the whole anonymous hook up thing and I'm well aware that it isn't a scene for everyone. Hell, it isn't even a scene for me and I wouldn't think about doing it. However, you have no right to start shaming other people or doing snap judgments because of their sexual preferences. The words slut and whore for example completely dehumanizes someone, even if they're a man or a woman. Especially when someone's own sexual activity is really up to their own. Shaming someone like that is disgusting.

    I tend to take this particular thing rather seriously considering that I've had female friends who've been completely alienated from other people for being a "slut". For what, being able to embrace their sexuality and perhaps wearing a skirt that is too "short"? It's the cheapest way to attack anybody, especially a woman. People already have enough stereotyping and issues to go through without people making stupid judgments over things that aren't even their own business. Honestly.

    Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. "Slut-shaming" is the cheapest and most ridiculous way to attack someone.

    Wow eventful Ice Wolf, I hope everything works out, and welcome back!

    On another note, I personally don't like what the word love has become. People use it so much that it's meaning really means very little. It's too bad too, because it's really a beautiful word.

    I'd like to join this club, please. While I'm not 100% certain I'm bisexual, I know I'm at least a bit bi-curious. But, my girlfriend of 10 months still loves me, and we still stay together regardless. As of yet, she is the only one who knows.

    Even before I started to have my feelings, I still was always very supportive of LGBT people. The way I see it, why discriminate against someone for a certain way they were born? I'm very glad that Don't Ask, Don't Tell is no longer active. That policy was just ridiculous imo.
