I’ve been meaning to post more on here however I just recently started working on my book again. (It’s on wattpad and if you want access to it just let me know.) It’s a LGBT NSFW book so yeah, you’ve been warned. It’s actually not super graphic like people would think. Just a few parts can get there. So far I’ve had good feedback. But anyways, once I finish this chapter I’m going to start brainstorming for my next article. Be patient! 🙂
I told myself I wasn’t going to reblog stories on here, however this is worth a read. Check it out.
I reblogged the post regarding the movie Redhead Randy about a gay high school kid who gets bullied so much he commits suicide and then comes back to avenge his death on those who made his life miserable.
While I am happy to see a movie that targets anti-bullying and especially anti-bullying of the gay community, I couldn’t help but wonder if this is really going to help or hurt. So, here are my concerns/questions.
1. Will teens even get the point of this movie or will it be just another slasher film that they watch and forget ten minutes later?
Anybody who has ever seen the movie Carrie can attest that very few people made any life altering changes after seeing that movie and she was tortured at home and at school. Teens may have been unsettled by the film but they shake it off and follow the path…

URGENT: WE ARE CALLING FOR AN INTERNET BLACKOUT
Anonymous has called for an Internet blackout in protest of CISPA. If CISPA is passed it would be legal for websites to hand over any personal information of yours to the united states. It would also allow them to actively spy on you without a warrant. You wouldn’t let the government put cameras and microphones in your house would you? Well this will be a step towards that.
“We are going dark on MONDAY April 22nd at 6 AM GMT for 24 hours to protest your illogical and terrorizing bill against the Internet itself. Even with the whole Internet crying out to stop this BILL, the US House of Representatives failed to do so blinded by lobbyist’s money and cum in your eyes. So we will take action ourselves and open your eyes. Every popular/mainstream websites will be black until you, Mr. Obama promise us to use your VETO power to stop this bill at Senate. Take this as a protest or a warning, as you wish. One thing is for certain, neither you or anyone else in this world can control the Internet, so don’t even try.” ~ Anonymous
Anonymous is NOT planning to shut down or attack anyone on the internet to force a blackout. Instead we are to call on our favorite websites requesting them to #Blackout.
We did this once and we can do it again. On January 18, 2012 over 7,000 websites participated in the blackout in protest of SOPA and PIPA. Those websites who participated include Wikipedia, Reddit, and even Google. If you own or run a website please black out.
All info :
Black out begins on Monday April 22nd at 6 AM GMT for a full 24 hours
You can also help stop this bill by contacting your representatives and asking them to stand with us.
I’m a big fan of rap, I always have been. However, for quite a while I feel like it had a slightly damaging effect on me. Not because the violence or anything like that. But because it was laced with homophobic slurs. Rappers calling each other “faggots” and what not. Being a gay male, it would bother me sometimes. Knowing that what I am was an insult to someone else. However, I’ve been seeing a change in the music industry. More artists are supporting the LGBT Community.
Right now Macklemore is a pretty big supporter. Publicly coming out and saying he supports and even putting out a song. (It’s the video embedded at the top.) Other rappers have come out to support, but there’s still not enough. The world is changing and EVERYONE will have to adapt to it. If they don’t they’ll be left behind and forgotten, or worse, remembered as a hateful person. I can only hope that in the near future more and more artists will show where they stand, whether it’s good or bad.
But anyways, the song posted is truly beautiful and I’m sure has done quite a bit of good for people. People who are out, in the closet, or confused. No matter what your orientation is I suggest you give the song a listen.
I just wanted to let everyone know that I have decided to change the name of the blog. I will still be covering LGBT news and what not, however I’ve found myself wanting to cover a larger array of things.
Previous Name = That Crowded Closet
I hope no one minds me doing so! Anyways, I hope everyone has a good night/day depending on where you’re at.
