‘BERTO’S BANTER: Call Him “Daddy”

Dating men with children, that is the topic at hand. Should you do it or not? Sexuality is not black or white; there are gray areas. My best friend who is a Jacqueline of all trades always says, “Sexuality is very much a scale and everyone falls somewhere on it”. Agreed! Based on how I view my sexuality, I define myself as gay. However, not all men who sleep with men define themselves as gay. Funny, isn’t it? Well, it’s true! When I first meet a man who I believe to be a potential future baby daddy I always ask him how he defines his sexuality. Their answer to that question usually lets me know how much B.S. I should anticipate.

‘BERTO’S BANTER: Bisexual…or Bye-Bye?

Should gay men have reservations about dating bisexual men? Many might say “no.” Why limit your options, right? Some might say “yes, definitely.” I get it – you don’t want to worry about your man leaving you for a woman, is that it? Everyone from gay men to straight women seem to have an opinion on this one.

From Russia with Love: Share Your Gay Affections with These Putin Valentines

Vladimir Putin has been the cause of a lot of fear and anger with his anti-gay stance. But what’s the best cure for hate? Love, of course! Since Putin likes to flaunt his stuff about as frequently as a hustler looking for Johns, there were numerous shots in his portfolio to choose from. This leader may be anti-gay, but that doesn’t mean he can stop us from using him as a tool to express gay love, so share away with your boyfriend or girlfriend, play thing on the side and that weirdo who keeps checking you out at the gym!

Editorial: Turkey with a Side of Homophobia

As the holidays approach and presents are wrapped, there’s still one thing many people tend to dread – family. No, not your own – though many of us would prefer to put a time limit on spending time with that group of monkeys – but your significant other’s family. This is awkward enough for heterosexual couples, but gay couples face even bigger challenges.

Gay Wedding Unfolds Like Straight Wedding, Except for Pesky Anti-Marriage Laws

05tokyo1_span-articleLarge-v2Starting at age 17, I was the most wild, untamable femme in all of Detroit. I broke every heart I snared, leaving them smashed into millions of little pieces from the east side all the way to the west side, and everywhere in between. Butches alerted each other about me, even going as far to leave fair warning notes in each other’s mailboxes: “Kate will cheat.”

We catch up and have a few laughs before I say I have to head home to make dinner. “You better get going. You don’t want to keep your friend waiting,” my grandmother says.

Editorial: Daily Acts of Discrimination

Like many twenty-somethings, I work a dull desk job with a seemingly never ending supply of annoying tasks. To unwind from the daily grind, I like to read various bits of news and useless information. Anyone who’s worked a dead end office job knows distraction is key. And unless you were fortunate enough to work in a more casual setting, you also know that your evil employers will block you from accessing certain websites. Most of the time this is reasonable. You can understand why they wouldn’t want you on Facebook all day or looking up porn. But imagine my shock when I tried to read a psychology article and was told the website was blocked for “gay or lesbian or bisexual interests.” Yes, you read that right, and no, you didn’t accidentally fall into a time machine to go back to 1958.

It was late Sunday night. Almost Monday. My boyfriend has dragged me out of bed to go pick his brother up from work and bring him to his friend’s apartment. The reason? My boyfriend wants to smoke and his brother says he can get us some weed. My boyfriend’s brother, let’s call him Jude, is a pseudo macho 20 year-old heterosexual who isn’t in school and works at a gas station.

It’s probably not worth watching Gravity on anything but IMAX, and no one is in the mood for 12 Years a Slave. The camera settles on the ROOMMATE, the leader of the discussion. ROOMMATE: We could see that lesbian movie… Blue something…
