ISRAEL DECLARED A TERRORIST STATE

Bolivia’s president, Evo Morales, has declared Israel a ‘terrorist state’ and scrapped their 1972 visa exemption which allowed Israelis to travel to Bolivia freely. President Morales has also filed ‘crimes against humanity’ charges towards Israel with the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. The United Nations, along with President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, are calling for an immediate and unconditional ceasefire for humanitarian purposes between Israel and Hamas.

This comes amid growing violence in Gaza by the occupying Israeli military. Today, Israel bombed yet another United Nations’ shelter, killing at least 20 Palestinians taking refuge there. Israel also bombed a busy market today killing an additional 15 Palestinians. With this, the death toll from the 3 week assault on Gaza has topped 1,300 people, hundreds of which were children. More than 7,000 people have been injured. At least 130,000 have left their homes and are filling shelters which, as seen with today’s attack, does not guarantee their safety. Many others have been forces to ride out the violence in their homes since they have no where else to do. Gaza is home to more than 1.8 million people. The leader of Hamas has declared they will not stop firing at Israel until they pull out of Gaza and end the decades long occupation. 3 Israeli citizens have been killed by Hamas.

Where was your outrage when American was bombing and killing innocent people all over the world in the name of fighting terrorism ?

I have been extremely outspoken against the United State’s military actions, both past and present. For example, I am very outspoken about the War in Iraq, the fact that the United States slaughtered innocent Iraqi civilians pisses me off to no end. I have also been very outspoken against past actions like the Vietnam “conflict,” the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII, and the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. I have been bashed for years because I have been so outspoken against the American war machine, don’t act like you know me. I believe violence should literally be the absolute final resort, no matter what countries are involved.

wish you amazing life hope you're having fun miss you

You say this as if you personally know me… if that is the case why are you on anon? Get your butt off and say hello!

Hi. I'm from Louisiana, and any LGBTQ member is profusely frowned upon. I've already told my mom, step-dad and some friends that I'm gay. How should I approach telling everyone else, backwards, Christian, Homophobic rats including my siblings?

Approach coming out the same way with the others as you have with everyone else. Remember that this is about you, this is about you coming out and living a life where you can be YOU. If they don’t like it, relatives or not, drop kick them from your life and bring people into your life who will accept and love you for who they are. If they are backwards, Christian, Homophobic rats, you don’t need that toxicity in your life.

What do you think of hookups?
Anonymous

I personally do not enjoy them as much as most people. I mean it is all fun and games for a little bit and then there just isn’t anything there after so I prefer not to hookup. Then again I also prefer not to date so basically I try not to get involved with any of that stuff.

Now, if you are asking what I think of people who hookup, who cares? Sex is sex. It is natural, pleasurable, and as long as you are safe, as long as you are not cheating on anyone, and as long as you are satisfied, that is your call to make. Some people hook up, some people wait to have sex until they are in a relationship, some people wait till marriage, some people don’t have sex at all, it is no one else’s business but the people involved.

Yes hi, where can i sign up to date you CAUSE DAMN SON DAYYUUUMMM

So this gay guy bestfriend of mine has been fooling around and saying things like 'I love you' to me, which is fine but the problem is he flirts with other girls too, what should i do?

I had to read this question a few times so if I screw this up, I am very sorry.

So he is gay, your best friend, you are a girl, and he flirts with other girls? Honestly, in my own experience, gay guys often do this, it isn’t supposed to be taken as flirting, it is just fooling around. Even I get accused of flirting with girls sometimes. If I were you, I wouldn’t look too deeply into it. Just carry on and pass his actions off as being friendly.

I'd bet money you've heard this before but I don't know for certain so I have to ask. Here's my problem. There's a guy I work with. We have the same position and he has a girlfriend. He's for gay rights but he's not even bi. I think I'm starting to feel more and more for him... Made worse by the fact he goes to college a few hundred miles away and I only see him on holidays and summer. I missed him more and more every semester. Any advice on what to do. He's also my best friend.

There are aspects of this question I have heard before but not all in the same boat, this is complex. So he is your best friend, coworker, he has a girlfriend and is not gay, and you rarely get to see him… Well the obvious and dumb response would be ‘move on,’ but that is always easier said than done. The truth is, the only solution is for you to accept that there will not be anything more than friendship between you two. He has a girlfriend, he is straight, there is nothing you can do to change that. Be his friend, be thankful for his support, but have enough love for yourself to start moving on. Unfortunately, there is no way to move on purposely, it takes time and will happen naturally when you fall for someone else. The good news is that he is pretty far away which may give you enough time and space to lessen your feelings and invest them elsewhere, whether that is in a new crush, a hobby, a passion, work, school or whatever, just keep yourself busy and let nature move you along. We all fall for guys we can’t be with, and we all think we will never fall for anyone else, but trust me, you will.

I'm gay and in the closet! My family and friends are Christian and my family is against gays but I'm not sure about my friends yet. I hate being someone I'm not and I'm sooo tired of it! But at the same time I don't want my family and friends to be disappointed and maybe ruin our relationship. Please help!!!!

Okay, first and foremost, let me say this: Your main concern right now should be accepting yourself and making sure you are safe. While coming out is very important, your safety comes first so if you think you’d be in any danger, wait to come out until you leave for college or to start a life of your own. And make sure you accept and love yourself because that is equally, if not more, important than acceptance from others.

Second, ‘family’ and ‘friend’ are titles earned by mutual support and respect, love and effort, if they cannot accept you, there is no relationship to ruin because it is fake from the start. If they cannot accept that you love the same sex, that is their ignorance and you deserve better. When the time comes to come out, if they do not support you, drop them from your life. After I was outed/came out, I lost/dropped a lot of people from my life because they were toxic, I didn’t need them and neither do you. There are plenty of other people out there who will take you in, accept you, and support you.

If you are ready to come out and just cannot take it anymore (as long as you are not in danger), go for it. Break down that closet door, free yourself, and be welcomed with open arms into a brand new life of transparency, just remember that there will always be people who will deny you happiness, but you have the power to shut them down and remove them from your life.  Your happiness is for the most part up to you.

I just started following you but am I allowed to say I still think you are very cool?

Haha, I jest! Thank you very much and I hope you love the content I post. If you ever need anything, please let me know!

I was going through your blog and page 126 made me extremely pissed. I'm so sorry for your loss. Some assholes just need to keep their mouths shut. You deserve to mourn in peace but some people like to ruin it. How would they feel if their love died and they received messages telling them to kill themselves? It's just so unfair!

This is exactly why I stopped replying publicly to hate mail. It really upset a lot of you guys and it also really upset Brandon. He asked me not to respond anymore and to just delete them, so I do. People will always have something to say, especially if they can use anonymity. Don’t worry though, it doesn’t bother me, in fact, most of the hate gives me quite a chuckle. And if some troll is that focused on me, it means they are not focused on someone else who would be hurt by the hate.

I have come a long way in the 3 years since Ryan died, and while I still have a long way to go, I no longer let people use his suicide against me. It still haunts me, but I have accepted its finality, I have accepted I will only see him in again my dreams, I have accepted the guilt, and now it is time to move forward with my life. Thank you for your condolences.
