Words to Live by: Aging gracefully

By the time this article publishes, I will be 41. I’ve never been the type to dwell on age, well, not my own age. “I won’t fight aging,” I told myself. I will age gracefully. No plastic surgery, no covering up gray hair. Of course I made these promises when I had no wrinkles and my hair was a solid dark brown. Now I stare in anguish at the wrinkles near my ear and do my best to hide the variety of “Just for Men” products in my bathroom.

But aging gracefully isn’t just about your appearance; It’s about your way of life.

Pope says HIV prevention “too small, partial” to support

Aboard the Papal Plane (AP) – Pope Francis is dismissing a question about whether condoms can be condoned in the fight against AIDS by saying there are more important issues confronting the world, like malnutrition, environmental exploitation and the lack of safe drinking water.

Francis was asked about the church’s opposition to condoms while returning Nov. 30 to Rome from Kenya, Uganda and the Central African Republic. Africa in general and Kenya and Uganda in particular have been hard hit by the AIDS epidemic, and the Catholic Church has faced criticism that its position has contributed to the problem.

In an interview Nov. 17 on NBC’s Today, the 50-year-old actor said he tested positive for the virus that causes AIDS about four years ago, but that, thanks to a rigorous drug regimen, he’s healthy.

Uprisings!: Fox Business Network will be hosting the worst Republican dinner party ever tonight. We’ll be liveblogging at 9 p.m.

And here we thought we were going to go sweetly into that warm bubble bath as the evening met its slumber. Nope. Instead, we’ll be doing what we do best while drinking in our underpants with dogs akimbo: liveblogging our thoughts on the currents and currency of the Republican presidential runaway train as it makes its next wobbly stop on the TEEVEE at 9 p.m. One and all should gather around their television tubes and bend their antennae in the direction of something onerous called the Fox Business Network. OR, you can pull out your phone, your iPad, your Kindle, your hair and just watch as we ruminate on how low politics can go. Either way, it will be fun. There are numerous drinking games, of course, because that’s what we’ve turned into. Our friend Peter Scorsch at saintpetersblog.com has been getting a chub about them all day. However, we have to work early in the morning, and our drinking will likely be supplemented with a lot of “How bloody dare you?” and “What would your mother think?” exhortations. Still, you don’t want to miss it. (We didn’t liveblog Friday’s Democratic “forum” because it was a “forum” and we were busy, but it was pretty spectacular and civil; Rachel Maddow is our spirit animal). Enough ranting for now. We’ll see you for the BIG GAME tonight. Over/under on Jeb and Marco making out? 0/0.

8:48 p.m.: TOOK A NAP! I have no idea what happened in Junior Varsity yet. Sometimes it’s better when you don’t know. Of course, that’s impossible. Bobby Jindal went batshit and Chris Christie’s “side fender” has been dented according to FOX guy.

Mr. Blue Sky: Rolling in the deep

Ten inches is a lot! This is one estimate on how much the sea level will rise in the next 15 years. Our coastal neighbors will be feeling brunt of this first; in fact Miami Beach and surrounding lower areas were seriously flooded this week. The summer of 2015 worldwide was the hottest ever on record and I could guess Central Florida added to this both in temperature and rainfall. Climate change is here – it’s not what is coming, it is what has arrived, and its threats have become promises.

Some years back a friend of mine asked, “Why do you care about the environment? You’re gay; it’s not like you’re going to have kids?” The fact is the LGBT community is concerned about the environment and we are having more and more couples creating families with children. The scary part is that we can’t leave it to our next generation to figure things out. We need to address the issues today, and we can do it sensibly. The LGBT community has proven itself time and again: When we come together, things change for the better. Our environment, which affects all of us, needs to be at the top of our list of goals,and here’s why. Property values: Areas that are more prone to flooding are required to carry expensive flood insurance and, as the frequency of flooding increases, it will be more difficult to sell homes in those areas. As we experienced in Tampa and Orlando this summer, you don’t have to live on the beach to feel the effects of what a more severe climate can bring to our neighborhoods. Water is life: Clean water for the LGBT community is as important as the African-American community as the Latin community – you get the point … everyone without exception.

Take action! Osceola County to consider living wage ordinance on Monday

By : Billy Manes
Comments: 1

Perhaps we should blame Hollywood and Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia for the false pretense of queer pageantry, but that tired stereotype that gays and lesbians sip cosmos and casually ponder how to spend their vast sums of disposable income masks some harsh realities.

The truth, as UCLA’s Williams Institute pointed out last year, is that more than 20 percent of LGBT adults rely on food stamps, and twice as many report being food insecure, compared to the nation as a whole. We’re not all taking long walks down far-thrown beaches waiting for our next disposable purchase. We’re talking just getting by and serving people turkey legs. In Osceola County, an MIT study concluded, the living wage for one adult with one child is $22.92 an hour. The inequities are clear.

Screened Out – The End of the Tour

We now know anyone can suffer from crippling depression – even brilliant people like lauded author David Foster Wallace; his misery was compounded by literary prominence and worldwide attention.

He once compared the combined forces of fame and depression to being trapped in a burning high-rise: “Nobody down on the sidewalk, looking up and yelling ‘Don’t!’ and ‘Hang on!’ can understand the jump. Not really. You’d have to have been trapped and felt the flames to understand a terror way beyond falling.”

Young, gay men are roiding out more than everyone else

CHICAGO (AP) Gay and bisexual teen boys use illicit steroids at a rate almost six times higher than do straight kids, a “dramatic disparity” that points up a need to reach out to this group, researchers say.

Reasons for the differences are unclear. The study authors said it’s possible gay and bi boys feel more pressure to achieve a bulked-up “ideal” male physique, or that they think muscle-building steroids will help them fend off bullies.
