Two Wrongs Sometimes = Right
The debacle surrounding Isaiah Washington and his “faggot” slur on the set of Grey's Anatomy has been spun in every direction possible. It appears Washington now feels he was wrongfully fired, since he “atoned” for his remark and apologized to anyone that may have been hurt by his comment. Some in the gay community have gone as far as to say that Washington has been a long-time gay rights supporter and a friend of the cause, but a question still comes to mind when I think of comments such as these and that is: Why would you utter such a slur if you have gay friends and are such a supporter of gay rights? It brought to mind what would happen if a White man who had a slew of African American friends blurted the word “Nigger” during a heated moment. Would his African American friends see his rant as an isolated incident or would they surmise that he had these racist feelings just under the surface all along. As I read many of the ongoing interviews with Washington, I see he is now pulling the race card and saying that as an African American man he is being treated unfairly, but the fact remains that he is not being punished for something he did not say or do. Now, the details of how the incident occurred may be muddled and whether or not the gay cast member, T.R. Knight, was ever on set when the comment was shouted is irrelevant. Washington admits to making the comment. So, let’s end the argument here and now. Black, White, Latino or Asian, you cannot use the word “faggot” or “nigger” regardless of the circumstances and expect sympathy from the community you hurt and society as a whole. Personally, I forgive Washington. I even accept that he may have plenty of gay friends – some of whom are crossing his name off that proverbial Christmas party list – but it doesn’t make the comment okay. Let’s move on and hope that Washington can learn from this and move on as well. So, should Washington have been fired when others have said worse and kept their jobs? Probably not. But in the unfair world of karma and bullshit, it sometimes works in your favor to not put it out there so it doesn’t come through the fan and back in your face.
Eating It Can Make You More Prone to Cancer
Maura Gillson of John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has concluded a study that found individuals who had oral sex with more than five partners were 250% more likely to develop throat, tonsil and other mouth cancers. This was due mostly to the human papilloma virus (HPV) that can also cause cervical cancer. By comparison, the study showed that drinking and smoking only increase the risk by threefold. Tonsil and throat cancers affect two in 100,000 adults in the U.S. Last year a vaccine against HPV was developed, but not enough is known for everyone to feel at ease administering it to young women. Researchers are attempting to develop a new spit test to test for the risk of cancers in the mouth and throat. In the meantime, be mindful of your koochie eating and keep your partners to a minimum.
Busta; The Update
Busta got up on all four legs yesterday; restoring my hope in his oral treatment working. There are still over five days of oral treatment left, but the future looks brighter now that he’s up and moving. My fingers are still crossed, but I’m grateful for his recovery so far. Thank you for the well wishes.
Many of us consider oral sex very intimate and will only engage in it with our spouses or life-partners, while others consider oral sex a fetish to be enjoyed with as many partners as possible. I’ve heard that it is more difficult to tell if a woman is unclean before oral sex; while a man’s external parts make for easier inspection in these situations.
All said (keep it real) do you use protection when having oral sex or do you only enjoy oral sex raw?
Keep passin’ the open windows…
