Sep 20, 2014 Daniel_NY commented on Wanna Cuddle with Strangers?.
To say no sane person would want to cuddle a stranger and should be stigmatized for wanting to do so (should be disclosed like an STI, really?) is absurd if you aren't far more appalled by Craigslist, Grindr, and Tinder. Why is it less weird to want to bone a stranger than just to be cuddled by one? Physical contact can be comforting, and not everyone has ready access to it. I myself am often hug-deprived. I might not personally use an app like this, but no one ever got an actual STI from promiscuous cuddling.

I went on vacation in December, had no internet and limited TV for more than a week; what little TV I watched was BBC World News.

Came back to new episodes of "The Daily Show," which was funny and all, but I found myself depressed that I was hearing about Fox News again. You don't realize how irrelevant they are until no one is dignifying them with a response.

I think the Christian martyr complex is because Christianity is founded on the concept of martyrdom -- He died for our sins! -- so being persecuted is almost a form of holiness, as if their faith and good works don't count unless everyone else is trying to keep them down. The fact that their faith is the dominant faith in the country makes it too easy, so some of them -- especially the most powerful ones who really have nothing to complain about -- look for and invent ways that they're persecuted so they can feel more like Jesus (except of course for the healing the sick, feeding the poor, and fighting the power).
Aug 18, 2013 Daniel_NY commented on SL Letter of the Day: POOP!.
That guy was a nasty little troll, so I'm kinda surprised Dan engaged him for so long. When he opens with talk about sucking lube and feces out of a guy's butt, the likelihood of meaningful discussion going forward is nil.

There's a quote I try to live by whenever picking my battles: "Some people, if they don't know, you can't tell 'em."
Jul 28, 2013 Daniel_NY commented on Craigslist Ad of the Day.
You know, there is a hot fantasy element to his ad. A kind of NSA roommate situation sounds kind of exciting. Blowing this otherwise straight guy and letting it be our little secret. Also kinda hot.

Where it gets less hot: The assumption that, as gay men, we will happily cook, clean, and decorate for him. Because his understanding of gay men is limited to bad romantic comedies where gay people only exist to improve the lives of straight people.

... and then reaches douchebag level: The assumption that he's doing a gay man some kind of huge favor by RECEIVING blow jobs. Um, thank you for letting me blow you occasionally while you're drunk. Because I'm so desperately and hopelessly cock starved that without sometimes being able to orally pleasure a complete narcissist, I'd die!
Apr 9, 2013 Daniel_NY commented on Savage Love Episode 337.
Cuccinelli (noun): A closeted, self-tormented gay man who tries to pass as straight by marrying a woman. It's all in there: Cooch + Nelly.

Usage: "Bob became a cuccinelli because he was afraid of getting arrested for gay sodomy in Virginia."
Apr 1, 2013 Daniel_NY commented on American Savage Gets a Starred Review in Publishers Weekly.
I wouldn't necessarily describe Dan as "verging on radical." I think of a "radical" as someone who wants to overthrow the social order. Dan has always seemed more interested in looking at the social order for what it actually is, without the blinders and filters imposed on us by religion, sex-phobia, heterosexism.
Feb 22, 2013 Daniel_NY commented on The Haters Are Gonna Hate The New Kindle Paperwhite Ad.
Awesome ad. I love how it's clever in a way that isn't self-conscious about its gay-friendly stance. It's refreshing to see a commercial -- ANY commercial -- challenging the advertising cliche of the slack-jawed idiot trying to hit on the hot chick.
Feb 4, 2013 Daniel_NY commented on It Looks Like an Exoskeleton.
Not the hottest Calvin Klein model I've seen -- Marky Mark got me through adolescence, and this new guy has got nothing on Mehcad Brooks or Kellan Lutz -- but I wouldn't kick him out of bed.
Jan 24, 2013 Daniel_NY commented on Jon Stewart Slams Paul Ryan.
Mostly unrelated, but I'm starting to develop kind of a hate-crush on Paul Ryan. He's pretty a good looking guy, especially by Congressional standards, and his beliefs are so heartless that I kind of want to bend him over and make him "take" it like one of the 47%. Just me?
