Linzy grew up in a small rural community in Florida called Stuckey. He had a large, close-knit extended family, and was raised by his Aunt and Grandmother. His has described his childhood and place of upbringing has thematically influential for his well-known video and performance work. For example, Linzy has produced a series of soap opera video works, and has described soap operas as having been a key social component for his family and community. He has said that shows such as Guiding Light were a part of daily life when he was growing up, and he often includes soap opera stereotypes in the characters and plot of his videos.  His soap opera videos can be characterized by their low-tech quality, themes of community, socializing, family, the church, sexuality and homosexuality. Linzy pushes the boundaries of gender in his work through dressing himself and other characters in drag, using pre-recorded voices or manipulating voice through video editing, and playing with different dialects. He also uses friends with little or no acting experience for some parts. In addition to video work Linzy performs on stage, writes songs, and collaborates with other artists.

Florida Finally Got Around to Banning Bestiality & Sex Altogether

Words and wording does matter. For instance when participating in some good old fashion S&M you are giving a “safe word” to call out when enough is enough. For example when your titties are being twisted too hard, you yell out, “PEACH BLOSSOM” and then your mate will/should stop. Florida has finally made it official, no more bestiality! The problems creeps in when there are loose definition of words like “animal.” The wording in the bill passed banning bestiality last week bans sex with animals. The problem is “we” are also animals (no, not like a pig in the bedroom).

Act summary:

An act relating to sexual activities involving animals; creating s. 828.126, F.S.; providing definitions; prohibiting knowing sexual conduct or sexual contact with an animal; prohibiting specified related activities; providing penalties; providing that the act does not apply to certain husbandry, conformation judging, and veterinary practices; providing an effective date.

Gawker.com says, ” The whole act is pretty hot. Here’s another sample from the “definitions” section, just for kicks.”

“Sexual contact” means any contact, however slight, between the mouth, sex organ, or anus of a person and the sex organ or anus of an animal, or any penetration, however slight, of any part of the body of the person into the sex organ or anus of an animal, or any penetration of the sex organ or anus of the person into the mouth of the animal, for the purpose of sexual gratification or sexual arousal of the person.

I think Burning Man meets traveling musician hippy. No hippy I don’t have any spare change. Change come from within. This is one of those guys where I am spending most of my energy trying to figure out what he would look like if he cut his hair off. Yeee-haw. This cowboy give bareback a whole new meaning.

See, Gay Couples are just like Straight Ones

by Accidental Bear

So, sad the commonalities we share with straight couples. We are not all fabulous and colorfully happy (gay). Some only  see red and kill our partners too. Now we have 3 fathers cats in the world, so sad.
