If you thought this morning's video ad for Miroslav underwear was creepy, their print ads aren't any less disturbing. They alternate between using men and women with their heads in guy's trousers - and another video ad is even eerier than the one I showed you this morning with a dwarf chasing a power walker all over town so he can stick his face in the walker's ass. (It's after the break for the bold of heart.)
So what else should be on your radar this afternoon? You don't have to stick your head in someone's underwear to find out! It's all right here:
- "People like Jenna [Talackova], [11 year old trans girl] Jazz and Chaz [Bono] have brought familiar faces to the fight of a community that, until recent years, has been widely portrayed as freakish," says The Daily. They've conducted a roundtable interview of several trans people about the evolving media portrayals of the trans community and issues.
- All 47,000 panels of the AIDS Quilt will be on display in late June and early July of this year in Washington DC. I made two of them.
- Jeremy Hooper has leaked an e-mail from a Focus on the Family staffer admitting the organization has some serious concerns about Tony Perkins' anti-gay rhetoric.
- There is a practical reason to learn about physics. You can get out of paying a traffic ticket.
- The White House continues to dig the ENDA executive order hole deeper. They're trying to spin their way out of it now, but no one is buying the bullshit.
- Scientists have discovered that "people who strongly value authority and tradition" are more likely to use the excuse that same-sex marriage will harm heterosexual ones. They don't mean their own. They think their marriage is just fine; it's "other people" who will be so influenced by the freedom to marry that they'll file for divorce. It's a common psychological occurrence called "third-person perception."
- Can you imagine looking at online porn for the first time and the movie you pick to watch shows your wife having sex with another man while you've been married? This Egyptian guy can.
- Protect All NC Families has received a $100,000 matching grant from a straight couple who want to protect the state's freedom to marry. For every dollar you give, they'll do the same. Go. Do it. Can you imagine what a message it will send if a Southern State is the first to reject an amendment at the ballot box?
