President Obama: Don’t Force Lt. Dan Choi and Other Gay Soldiers to Pay for their DADT Discharges

by Accidental Bear

Please sign this petition at change.org. Why is common sense so hard for some people?

OVERVIEW

Lt. Dan Choi served his country with honor in Iraq as an American infantry officer in the U.S. Army. But in June 2010, Lt. Choi was officially discharged from the Army, after coming out as gay on an episode of the Rachel Maddow Show. Now, months after being discharged for violating the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, the Department of Defense wants to charge Lt. Choi more than $2,500, to make up the cost of “the unearned portion” of his enlistment bonus.

Feeding the Gays: “Boys of Fashion Week SS/2012″ | Video

by Accidental Bear

So our men can’t all be rugged and scruffy. You have to use your imagination. This candid group of male models for Justin Wu for Spring/Summer 2012 are primped and looking fine, but just imagine if you took them camping for a month, rolled them in dirt and left all razors at home. But for now, think of Cyndi lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna have Fun” and substitute, girls with boys.

by Accidental Bear

NewNowNext has held down this guy and asked him the who, what and Whys of his future and beyond. I am all ears. Here is the juice they squeezed out of him:

America was impressed and a little taken aback when singer Tyler Robinson came out to his dad on the NBC show The Voice. The kid’s got courage! He’s also got talent, with a style he calls “white boy soul.”

Now that the show is over and he has moved on, NewNowNext checked in with the adorable redhead to see what’s going on now and in the future. He has an EP expected out by the end of the year, and he’ll likely be performing locally or touring as well. Check him out!
