    The former England captain his LA Galaxy team mates were lauded at the White House after winning the Major League Soccer Cup, America's equivalent of the Premiership. Turning to the 37-year-old Beckham, Mr Obama described him as "young up-and-comer". To laughter from his team mates, the President said: "I have to say I gave David Beckham a hard time, and told him half the team could be his kids. We're getting old, David.'' But he conceded that the footballer was "holding up better than me" and said it was a " a rare man who can be that tough on...

    Roberts recently filmed a mouthy man in an Elmo shirt (it kinda suits him) as he was getting ticketed by a police officer. The man loses his composure when he realizes Roberts is filming him for his segment. He goes off on him, calling Roberts a "fat ass" and telling him his fat, lazy ass can only afford food.
  • Psychologists find link between ovulation and women's ability to identify heterosexual men

    University of Toronto ^ | 22-Jun-2011 | Professor Rule
    TORONTO, ON – A new study by psychologists at the University of Toronto and Tufts University shows that a woman can more accurately identify a man's sexual orientation when looking at his face, when she is closest to her time of peak ovulation. Further, having romantic thoughts or a mating goal heightens a woman's ability to discriminate between straight and gay men. "This effect is not apparent when a woman is judging another female's orientation," says Professor Nicholas Rule of the Department of Psychology at the University of Toronto, lead author of a new study published in Psychological Science. "This...
  • Straight or Gay? Vowels in Speech May Give it Away

    U.S. News and World Report Health ^ | May 20, 2011 | HealthDay
    FRIDAY, May 20 (HealthDay News) -- For the average listener, the vowel sounds in an unfamiliar voice quickly give away the speaker's sexual orientation, a new study finds."I'm not sure what exactly the listeners are responding to in the vowel," study lead author Erik C. Tracy, a cognitive psychologist at Ohio State University, said in a news release from the American Institute of Physics. "Other researchers have done various acoustic analyses to understand why gay and heterosexual men produce vowels differently. Whatever this difference is, it seems that listeners are using it to make this sexual orientation decision." When hearing...

    The pink tide has turned in Obama’s favor. After months of challenging interactions with his gay base, which included heckling from gay protestors at events and a drop in contributions from the community, Obama is back on track with LGBT voters. The reversal, which took successfully repealing DADT and an administrative abandonment of the Defense of Marriage Act, which he ruled unconstitutional, has put Obama back on the gay radar as a positive force for the community. As a bisexual man who doesn’t hook up with guys, and having a brother who is gay, I have the good fortune of...

    The American Thinker ^ | December 23, 2010 | Kevin Jackson
    Hollywood is allowed to discriminate based on anything. "Sorry, but you're too black." "You're good, but you're too fat." "I like you, but you aren't pretty enough." Hollywood can pick whomever they want, for whatever reason and with no repercussions. Discrimination for the sake of art. But the military, the people who protect the nation, can't choose whom they want now that gays got their win with the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. Now they can be openly gay. What exactly is openly gay, anyway? Gays are individuals and not defined by their sexuality -- at least not the...

    The article itself is three short paragraphs that note Obama is playing golf with "his boys" today and will hold a barbeque at the White House tomorrow.This comment at ABC caught my attention, however:I used to support President Barack Hussein Obama, I really did, but with all due respect, are you kidding me? Golfing again? Gulf spill ("bad bad Tony Hayward for yachting w/ family!"), Afghan War, skyrocketing ACORN/welfare rolls, skyrocketing unemployment, and "golf w/ the boys"? What is that, 41 golf outings since becoming President? I thought he had a problem with George Bush golfing 41 times in EIGHT...

  • Gaydar really exists: Scientists prove gay people are more able to pick out fellow homosexuals

    Gay people really do have an inbuilt radar that helps them seek out like-minded souls, scientists have shown. This sixth sense, or 'gaydar', ensures they pay more attention to detail, allowing them to pluck potential partners out of a crowd. The Dutch researchers looked at whether straight and gay people focus their attention differently when faced with a problem. A total of 42 men and women were shown pictures of outlines of large squares and rectangles, each of which was packed with smaller shapes. Our brains are wired to take in the bigger picture, meaning that if we are...

    Is she or isn't she? Ever since the Wall Street Journal published a photo of Supreme Court Justice in waiting Elena Kagan playing softball everyone has wanted to know which team she bats for. Why is it these kinds of fights only really get picked by the left? Aren't we supposed to be adults here? Why when Democrats are in power must there always be an air of immaturity. (Its like High School Abuse-ical) That said, lets raise the bar a little higher here and lament on the fact that this wouldn't be an issue if gaydars actually existed....

    Vladimir Putin has buffed up his action-man image and raised the pin-up stakes among world leaders with another set of bare-chested holiday pictures. Photographs were published today showing the Russian Prime Minister stripped to the waist and riding a horse imperiously through rugged terrain during a brief holiday in the Siberian region of Tuva. Wearing only green fatigues, his eyes hidden behind reflective sunglasses, Mr Putin also showed his gentler side as he fed the horse from his hand after the ride. Mr Putin, who will be 57 in October, showed off a set of rippling arm muscles as he...

    Why St. Pete Pride grows Published : Friday, 26 Jun 2009, 7:22 PM EDT Steve Nichols ST. PETERSBURG - Saturday's St. Petersburg Pride Parade is expected to attract its highest attendance ever, making it the largest Pride event in the southeastern United States this year. Last year, an estimated 70,000 to 80,000 people descended on Central Avenue, and organizers expect to top 80,000 this year. The exponential growth has already made the event the largest Pride celebration in Florida, and has come about because of a number of factors. Chief among them is that a drought in Georgia that could...

    Although I've always wanted this particular superhuman power, I've never been very good at detecting other men's sexual orientation. Findings from a recent study published in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, however, suggest I may be underestimating my gaydar abilities. The January 2008 study investigated people's ability to identify homosexual men from pictures of their faces alone. In an initial experiment, researchers Nicholas Rule and Nalini Ambady from Tufts University perused online dating sites and carefully selected 45 straight male faces and 45 gay male faces. All of these photos were matched for orientation (only faces shown looking forward...
  • Paparazzi Photog Gets a 'Pec-tacular' Obama Shot

    More than a dozen photographs of a bathing suit-clad President-elect Barack Obama surfaced online Monday showing the shirtless Chicagoan accompanied by his wife, Michelle, and their two young daughters on the white-sand beach in front of their vacation home. Reporters, photographers and television camera operators traveling with the Obamas have been banned by the Secret Service from approaching the oceanfront estate in nearby Kailua where the family is vacationing. But an enterprising paparazzi photographer wearing a Hawaiian shirt apparently strolled along the beach, saw the Obamas, took out his long-lens camera and started shooting. The photographer was less than 200...

    Barack Obama showed off his impressively muscled tummy and a toned pair of pecs while on holiday in Hawaii. The U.S. president-elect is throwing down something of a challenge by being photographed in his swimming trunks. Several world leaders have tried in recent years to impress the crowds with a topless holiday shoot - with varying degrees of success.   Hawaii photos(If that waxed/shaved look isn't metrosexual nothing is. I'm embarrassed by this dude. He embarrasses America. I can imagine what Muslims leaders and Amedinijad will think of the shaved look)

    Remember those staged photos of Bill and Hillary Clinton dancing on the beach once upon a time? You have to wonder. The Obama 'pec' photos were taken on a public beach. Some accounts said the photographer had approval to take those shots. All of a sudden, the bad buzz about links between Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and Barack Obama was gone for a while, replaced by good buzz about presidential pecs," noted Tim Graham of the Media Research Center. "There's some bathing-suit bias, too. When beauty queen photos of [Alaska Republican Gov.] Sarah Palin surfaced during the presidential campaign, the...

    San Francisco (AP) -- A daylong work stoppage during which employees were encouraged to "call in gay" to express support for same-sex marriage drew spotty participation nationwide Wednesday, with some gay rights activists praising the concept but questioning its effect. In San Francisco's gay Castro district, residents and merchants said they endorsed the message behind "Day Without a Gay" but didn't think a work stoppage was practical given the poor economy and the strike's organization. "If we are going to make a huge impact and not be laughed at, then we have to take the time and make the time...
