Neil Patrick Harris vs John Barrowman

John Barrowman vs Neil Patrick Harris

AfterElton, a website that follows bisexual and gay men in entertainment, put a poll on their website to choose the gay/bisexual man of the decade.  The list included Neil Patrick Harris, John Barrowman, T.R. Knight, Cheyenne Jackson, Patrik-Ian Polk, Sir Elton John, Sir Ian McKellen, Lance Bass, David Hyde Pierce, Dustin Lance Black, George Takei and the option of choosing Adam Lambert and other out young gay men.

NPH and John Barrowman quickly moved to the top of the list and the stars, and their friends, hit Twitter to get some votes.  It started with NPH (ActuallyNPH on Twitter) saying “If you’re feeling it, throw a vote my way.  Being atop John Barrowman would be a great way to start the decade…”

John Barrowman quickly started a Twitter campaign of his own (Team_Barrowman on Twitter).  “Sorry, Neil, I won’t go down without a fight.GIVE YOUR VOTE FOR TOP MAN BARROWMAN…….. jb”

With the battle heating up, friends of NPH and John Barrowman joined the Twitter-palooza.  Jonathan Ross, a talk show host from Great Britain with about 500k followers threw his support behind Barrowman.  Then, Dr. Horrible co-stars Nate Fillion (NathanFillion) and Felicia Day (FeliciaDay) added their support to the NPH ranks.  Alyssa Milano (Alyssa_Milano) wasn’t far behind with her support for NPH.

Then the fun really got started.   The SyFy Channel joined the fray and officially backed George Takei.  They also sent a link to the poll on their Twitter account (SyFy) saying “Captain Jack Harkness fights Doctor Horrible for the Gay Man crown.”

Author Neil Gaiman (neilhimself) enlisted his followers to support John Barrowman.  Allison Hannigan (alydenisof), NPH’s co-star on How I Met Your Mother, asked her 71,000 followers to vote.

The whole thing has turned into a #biggaybattle on Twitter.

Here is Your 15 Minutes of “Fame” @KRTweets

KRTweets = Kurt R.

🙂 *SHIMMER, SHIMMER*

Yesterday morning I had the pleasure to wake up to read the following comment by a guy who calls himself “KRTweets” on Twitter – Click HERE for his profile.

At first, I decided to just leave the comment alone due to the fact that I am wary of associating with people with obvious psychological issues. Then, I wondered if this guy was serious or if he said horrific things to gain a spotlight. Negative attention is better than no attention at all? Right? *Maybe for him*

I decided today to give him a well deserved 15 minutes of “fame” for his hatred of the GLBTQ community. I love how his very small mind includes common “stereotypes” and I had to laugh out loud that he thought he was responding to a fat lesbian with a mustache. What a clever kid.

I am honestly surprised he has a girlfriend, the world might need proof of that. If it’s true, she must be heavily medicated to endure the company of this pathetic excuse for a human being.

I will tag a WARNING to the following comment due to explicit content.

Please, by all means, feel free to comment to this blog and also pay a visit to our dear friend and write him a sweet message.

*I thought about adding my own personal commentary to his comment, but I think his words speak enough on their own.

KRTweets: (comment in PINK, since he is so “manly”)

“U mad? Last I checked this is America, and I’m allowed to express my opinions freely. The only thing I loathe are you deviant pieces of shit. I look gay? Its called taking pride in the way you carry about yourself. I’m sorry I don’t look like one of you fat dykes with facial hair and unibrows. It’s not my fault you are so fat, repulsive and grotesque that no man would ever want to slide his dick inside of you. It’s not my fault most of your parents rejected your lifestyle and have nothing to do with you anymore. It’s not my fault that your parents are probably sad that they wont have grandkids that weren’t adopted, or artificially inseminated running around one day. Last I checked I was very straight, as the girl who I am seeing is a viewer on this website and has a bunch of faggot friends. Just because society as a whole has become weak and feeble minded due to the whole “political correctness” agenda, doesn’t mean that I have to accept your disgusting lifestyle and have my future kids grow up in a society where you trash roam as a married couple. Future AIDS patients like yourself and GLAAD pushing your agenda down America’s throat so we become sensitive to your needs is what’s wrong with this country.

Another thing, to the carpet munching dyke that wrote this article probably has a mustache that nit-picked my tweets: include what the faggot said to me first and you’ll see why I told his parents to die of AIDS.

Hopefully you transgendered’s get so confused with your identities that you hang yourselves or get Matthew Sheppard’ed. You’re the worst of them all. God made you a certain way and yet you refuse to accept it. Youre the biggest pieces of shit of all and an abomination to humanity. After watching ‘Boys don’t cry’ I can say that Brandon Teena deserved what “it” got except for the rape part, that was quite fucked up. Matthew Sheppard deserved what he got because the words “no means no” didn’t register in his head.

I dont have any self hatred issues at all, I’m quite happy with who I am, the life I lead, the girl Im with. Just because I hate you doesn’t mean I hate myself. They should take up the same policy in the US that they have in Jamaica towards gays. It would make the world a better place. I sincerely mean that.

-KRTweets.”

P.S. from Tristan: Yes, you certainly have a right to your opinions and from reading your tweets you are very opinionated. Not just about this topic, but many others. You seem to enjoy playing God and judging others. Have fun with that, sweetie. Life has a way of teaching people lessons and when you remain defiant and resist learning, the lessons will become much more harsh. It might help you boost your ego and feel better about your life to put others that are unlike you down, but that only goes so far and only lasts so long. The only person that cares about your opinion is you and only you. You do nothing to better the world and to help others. You remind me of the dog shit I stepped in last week…you hate when you see it, you don’t want it near you, it smells terrible and you can’t wait to rid yourself of it forever. The type of impression you make on people will leave you alone with yourself in the end, which I’m sure will suit you fine since the only person you love is yourself.  Then you will have all the time in the world to face your own horrific existence and re-runs of all your selfish, hateful ways will play on repeat in your small, senseless mind. Actually, I think I’m being too nice, sweetie…

Thank you for your comment. It makes me feel good that you read my previous article

“To Discriminate Only Generates HATE”

and that it fueled your fire. Hope you enjoy your 15 minutes of “fame”. Just remember: not all “fame” is obtained and put on display to reveal good things. Every man is truly judged on the content of his character, and yours screams out loud and clear.

“To Discriminate Only Generates HATE”

Exposing HATE. Yesterday, I found a lot of HATE on Twitter just to remind us that it is still out there. HATE brews every single day. It gets stronger…it gets deeper…it gets more evil.

I did a search on twitter.com for this: itshouldbeillegal gays (and a few more searches including transgender, homosexual, lesbian.)

#itshouldbeillegal was a trending topic yesterday (and still is today) and I noticed A LOT of hate and it was disturbing. One thing I noticed was that the HATE came from a people once a minority themselves, African Americans (also mostly men). I fail to  understand since logically you would think they would be the ones to rise up to take a stand for others for equal human rights.

Some of the tweets talked about wanting to get all of the gays together and killing them all — many were about hating them…it should be illegal to be one, be forced to respect them — one “tweeter” said it should be illegal for gays to get married and then he said…”oh, wait! it is! HAHA LOL!!!” — I think I had forgotten how much HATE there is still in the world…silly me thought the GLBTQ community had really made a lot of progress and have overcome most all opposition.

Some tweets were very positive and I want to note that. Some were saying it should be illegal to discriminate against the GLBTQ community…I was just disturbed by the people who bluntly said they wanted to kill them all. WOW. To hate a group of people that much when they don’t affect your life at all…it’s beyond me. There are plenty of people in this world I don’t necessarily “agree” with  but I wouldn’t want to kill all of them (or ANY of them). The only people that should ever be killed, in my personal opinion, are those who truly deserve it – like murderers and child molesters, etc.

*side note* I had NO idea that the new “lingo” on the street was to say “No Homo” after saying something that might sound “gay”.

STOP the HATE


ON A POSITIVE NOTE (is that a c minor? hmm)

http://www.sovo.com/thelatest/thelatest.cfm?blog_id=27785

President Obama intends to sign into law Wednesday a long-sought hate crimes protection measure as part of a major defense bill, according to an administration source.

The president plans to pen his name to the fiscal year 2010 defense authorization bill, which includes a provision known as the Matthew Shepard & James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act. The measure would make illegal hate crimes based on actual or perceived sexual orientation and gender identity, among other categories, and would allow the Justice Department to assist in the prosecution of such crimes.

Brandon Teena (1972 - 1993)

I am going to end with some lyrics from the song “Where is the Love?” by the Black-Eyed Peas:

I think the whole worlds addicted to the drama
Only attracted to the things that bring you trauma
Overseas yeah we tryin to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin
In the USA the big CIA the Bloodz and the Crips and the KKK
But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And if you hatin you’re bound to get irate
Yeah madness is what you demonstrate
And that’s exactly how anger works and operates
You gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love y’all

People killing people dying
Children hurtin you hear them crying
Can you practice what you preach
Would you turn the other cheek?
Father Father Father help us
Send some guidance from above
Cause people got me got me questioning
Where is the love?

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As I’m getting older y’all people get colder
Most of us only care about money makin
Selfishness got us followin the wrong direction
Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting their young minds faster than bacteria
Kids wanna act like what the see in the cinema
Whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness and equality
Instead of spreading love, we’re spreading anomosity
Lack of understanding, leading us away from unity
That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feeling under
That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feeling down
It’s no wonder why sometimes I’m feeling under
I gotta keep my faith alive, until love is found

Peace & LOVE,

Tristan Skye
