  • Voting Based on Appearances

    Whether we like it our not, people vote on appearances. (JFK vs Nixon, for example). Afterall, that's how we voted for cheerleaders in high school. With that said, and putting all parties, policies and platforms aside, who would you vote for based purely on appearance? By appearance, I mean who conveys the look of a leader by just walking into a room and saying "We have a situation here that requires your attention."? My thoughts in no particular order: 1. Fred - Physically imposing, well spoken and a good voice. 2. Rudy - Looks like a weasel and doesn't fill...

    Scientists developed 'gay bomb' to make enemy soldiers stop fighting and make love Last updated at 16:59pm on 8th October 2007 "All's fair in love and war," the old proverb goes. And one group of military scientists certainly took the statement to heart when they designed a "gay bomb" to make enemy soldiers irresistible to each other. Researchers from the US Air Force submitted a three-page proposal to Pentagon chiefs to develop lust-creating chemical weapon, it has been revealed. Scientists at the Wright Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio - working to make American military might even mightier - made the discovery...

    Groundbreaking reality make-over show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy has been cancelled after three seasons--but the stars of the show insist they are still a huge hit with celebrities. The show features five gay men who make-over unstylish straight men each week on the Bravo network, and since hitting the screen the camp stylists have been asked to revamp the homes of stars including Jennifer Lopez. Queer Eye member Jai Rodriguez says the show won't be returning for another season, explaining, "Well, we haven't been asked back for 2007. "It's only been three years, but it feels like so...

    There is a growing trend in men's fashion, the handbag. It goes by many names: the man-bag, the murse. It is a cross between a backpack and a briefcase that looks very much like a pocketbook. They have been big in Europe for quite some time. Who can forget Jerry Seinfeld's exclamation, "It's European." But now, it is coming to America. Why? Because in these teched-out, decked-out times, American men need to put all that stuff somewhere. Guys have their cell phones, BlackBerries, wallets, checkbooks, sunglasses, body spray, you name it. And the 21st century guy wants to put it...

    JOHN Kerry has joined John Murtha and other Democrats in saying he erred in voting for the liberation of Iraq. "It is essential to acknowledge that the war itself was a mistake. . . . It was wrong, and I was wrong to vote for that Iraqi war resolution," Kerry told a Democratic Party gathering in Washington this week. If the junior senator from Massachusetts truly believes that his judgment was so clouded that he sent thousands of American men and women to their deaths needlessly, then he should do the honorable thing and resign from Congress. Senators and congressmen...
  • US military pondered love not war- (investigated building a "gay bomb" )

    The US military investigated building a "gay bomb", which would make enemy soldiers "sexually irresistible" to each other, government papers say. Other weapons that never saw the light of day include one to make soldiers obvious by their bad breath. The US defence department considered various non-lethal chemicals meant to disrupt enemy discipline and morale. The 1994 plans were for a six-year project costing $7.5m, but they were never pursued. The US Air Force Wright Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio, sought Pentagon funding for research into what it called "harassing, annoying and 'bad guy'-identifying chemicals".

    WHO cares if the Loch Ness monster is real, we now know the true identity of Mr. Six, the rubber-legged dancing old guy from the Six Flags amusement parks ads. He's really Danny Teeson, in his late 20s or early 30s and one of the stars of Bravo's "Queer Eye for the Straight Girl" the spin-off of "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy." The news was broken first on an Internet blog last week, pauldavidson.net, and confirmed to The Post by knowledgeable industry sources. It is understood that Teeson's ad campaign is over, but Six Flags officials have insisted that...

    RIO de JANEIRO, Brazil, July 25-A Connecticut doctor said today that his patient is the source of the highly publicized, rapidly-progressing, multi-drug-resistant HIV strain that aroused considerable concern when a New York man was infected earlier this year. "However," said Gary Blick, M.D., a private practice physician in Norwalk, Conn., "we want to emphasize that our patient is not rapidly progressing. Nor is that patient's life partner, who is also infected with a similarly highly resistant strain, rapidly progressing." The reason the infected New York City man's immune system suddenly deteriorated in a three-month period might have had more to...

    Perhaps "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" should be renamed "Queer Eye for the Scorned Gal." Dawn Steele, a New Jerseyan whose ex-husband was featured on this season's premiere episode, says the furniture the Fab Five unceremoniously dumped belonged to her — a gift from her late grandparents. On top of that, she claims the renewal of marriage vows — which the style mavens arranged for Army Spec. Ray Steele and his new wife Maria — sidestepped the fact that the original wedding happened before Ray divorced her, making him a bigamist. And the show made Ray, 38, look...

    CANTON, OH -- With less than two weeks until voters decide an increasingly intense race, Democratic vice presidential candidate John Edwards yesterday slammed President Bush as incompetent and out of touch with problems facing Ohioans and the rest of the nation. And Vice President Dick Cheney is a hypocrite, Edwards told a crowd of 1,000 at Canton Memorial Civic Center, for saying this week in Ohio that terrorists could strike U.S. cities with nuclear weapons and Democrat John Kerry isn't tough enough to protect the nation. "I think it's the height of hypocrisy, coming from a president and a vice...

    'Gay' men as the straight man's messiah? Posted: December 8, 2003 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2003 WorldNetDaily.com My radio producer volunteered me as a subject for "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy." I doubt I'll go through with outing myself on national television as an unprocessed hillbilly, but I am intrigued by gay men having become the straight man's "messiah." "Queer Eye" is based on the premise that heterosexual men are today's coarse savages who need their chest and back hair (wait, isn't that a rug?) waxed. Bad-mannered brutes and barbarians with apartments that look like Beirut. Unlettered in stylishness,...

    CHICAGO - Something queer is happening to the word "queer." Originally a synonym for "odd" or "unusual," the word evolved into an anti-gay insult in the last century, only to be reclaimed by defiant gay and lesbian activists who chanted: "We're here, we're queer, get used to it." Now "queer" is sneaking into the mainstream - and taking on a hipster edge as a way to describe any sexual orientation beyond straight. Jay Edwards, a 28-year-old gay man from Houston, has noticed it. "Hey Jay," a straight co-worker recently said. "Have you met the new guy? He's really cute and...

    Dean courts wide spectrum Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean tried to be all things, except George W. Bush, to all voters on fundraising stops in Boulder and Denver on Tuesday. The pack-leading Democrat hit all the marks, courting fiscal conservatives and social liberals. He bashed the war and pumped up his plans for universal heath care, renewable energy and investments in schools, highways and broadband Internet for everyone. Dean declared himself a "metrosexual," the buzz phrase for straight men in touch with their feminine sides, as he touted his accomplishments in "equal justice" for gay and lesbian couples. But then...

But I suspect that many of you have contracted it, too. Let's talk. Remember a few years ago when there was lots of talk about "compassion fatigue"? The news confronted us with so many problems, so the theory went, that our ability to feel compassion simply wore out. If nothing else, it made a nice excuse for indifference. But to some degree, it also made sense....

    Males and Metrosexuality by Karen De Coster by Karen De Coster There has been lots of chatter, lately, about metrosexual maleness. According to the latest TV shows, feminized men and queers are necessary to direct poor, blighted, heterosexual guys to the nearest stylish closet and shave, and queers are the only ones who "get it" when it comes to overall trend-setting and lifestyle enhancement. Got a date? Ask a queer how to dress and pick out the wine. Does your house look like Oscar Madison's? Ask a queer how to decorate it. The Queer Eye for the Straight Guy TV...
