"And just ‘cause the sun shines don’t mean you’re on my mind" Schwartz 2013
On the surface, this drawing is of me bottoming for my favorite porn star while the people in my head cheer and applaud because it’s been so many years since I got any butt action. On a deeper level, this drawing represents what I learned about being gay before I realized I was gay. As a kid,I would hear that being gay meant you took it in the butt and this idea sounded so weird and foreign to me. I knew straight people fell in love, got married and had kids but gay men were into bizarre sex with no love, no feelings and no commitments.
When i started dating men, it hit me that sex was a very minor part of being gay. There is the companionship, the friendship, the affection and most importantly, meeting someone who you identify with because you shared the same struggles growing up in a world you don’t fit into. Sex is important in a relationship which is why i draw so much about my lack of it and how frustrating and hopeless my situation is. But if butt sex was the only thing I thought about, then I would be single.
I created this drawing as a sarcastic over-exaggeration of what it means to be gay in post-DOMA America. Despite DOMA being struck down, we still have all kinds of politically powerful right wing assholes who spread lies saying that all gay men are sex crazed maniacs who don’t fall in love and live just for pleasure.
The bottom figure is wearing a Reagan mask because in my lifetime, he was the most destructive in decimating minorities. And by that i mean the poor, the gays and the mentally ill. AIDS exploded like a holocaust under his presidency, Crack spread like wildfire in the inner cities and he shut down mental health facilities. This all occcured while the gap between the rich and the poor increased beyond what anyone thought previously possible.

The Magnetic Telescope
“Superman” Theatrical Cartoons - April 24, 1942
Generally the advantage of the telescope is that distant objects can be examined remotely, but one scientific contrarian instead chooses to use his magnetic telescope to circumvent optical science by bringing a death-spitting comet close to the Earth. Really, it’s the unchecked fear of the citizenry which ultimately causes the subsequent disaster, although bringing tremendous celestial objects to a height reachable by stepladder was probably unwise to begin with.
At the end of this episode, Clark receives – however mistakenly – what appears to be the first kiss between himself and Lois Lane (Lois has planted a smacker on the Man of Steel before, but never on her despised rival co-worker).
Today’s #GivingTuesday! We’d love for you to consider helping us to continue providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ youth. Just $4 will help provide one text conversation between a youth and a trained counselor.
Ever since I got back from New York, life’s been crazy. I’ve been traveling non stop (no complains there). I went to Goa, followed by Bangalore, Chennai, Jodhpur, Bikaner and Jaipur. Hence, the lack of posts.
Hope everyone’s doing well. x
reblogging myself, cos it’s relevant. :)
Try to be around as much of the color blue as you can. Interestingly, the color blue can act as an appetite supressant, which is not that surprising since naturally blue-colored foods are pretty rare. To test this theory, have the color blue visible when you are eating. Stay away from warmer colors, like reds, yellows and oranges, because they encourage hunger. Several people do not realize how much visual signs affect the amount of food that we consume. Bear this in mind when you set the table or choose your clothing. When you are on a weight loss plan, try to eat a wide assortment of foods. If you eat only a few foods repeatedly, you’ll get tired off them and fall off the wagon. Make sure you eat a balanced diet, and realize you are still able to quite a variety of foods, but you can’t have them all at once. It is helpful to consult with a dietician in matters relating to healthy lifestyles and weight loss. Dietitians help people make better choices about the food they are eating. Eating healthy food is a big part of losing weight. This weight loss tip is for people who dislike doing a work out for exercising. As an alternative, you can, play football with your kids, take the canine for a walk, ride your bicycle or hike through the woods. These activities do not even make you feel like you are working out.
