Elements of Sexuality: 20th Century Images of Gay Men
 
05:20
This video offers snapshots of three sexual regimes in US history pertaining to male-male intimacy and gay identity. The first two clips show a stereotype of men who have sex with other men as "pansies" and "fairies," but it's not necessarily a demeaning one. The crowd is laughing with them as much as they're laughing at them. The fairies' performance receives giant applause from the hip Greenwich Village crowd. Jay (Tony Jowitt) and Nasa (the irrepressible Clara Bow) enter the night club because they're fascinated by the edgy scene, not because they hate gays (in fact, "gay" is not a commonly used term to describe men who have sex with other men at this point in history). As George Chauncey explains in Gay New York (1994), the public fascination with "gay" men (the so-called "pansy craze") turned to hostility during the 1930s. The second clip represents the solidification of anti-gay hostility after World War II, including the medicalization of same-sex desire, the conflation of pederasty and homosexuality, and other closet-constructing public opinions. The final clip represents the post-Stonewall celebration of gay pride. Chauncey's research suggests that the first and last clips have more in common despite their historical distance. The history of gay liberation in the US is not a linear one, and this history shows that fascination and public acceptance can turn to intolerance and hostility if we're not careful.

It's not unusual to hear of men using steroids to 'pump up' their physique under pressure to look ‘good’. Meanwhile, the number of men in England receiving treatment for eating disorders is reported to be on the rise. In this episode of The Naked Truth, five men – of all different shapes and sizes – talk about their own bodies and reveal what it’s like to feel the pressure to look the part in a six-pack-obsessed culture. If you, or someone you know, have been affected by eating disorders, the following organisations may be able to help: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/2DRkg4JC7SLT3B7hlrn6DKN/information-and-support-eating-disorders -- Click here to subscribe to BBC Three: http://bit.ly/BBC-Three-Subscribe Did you know that we’re up to other things in other places too?

Consonni said the photo did not violate any guidelines, which restricts nudity, spam, illegal activity, or violent imagery.‘When I found out that it was removed I was outraged and angry,’ she told Newsweek.‘My thoughts went straight to Jordan and Luca that posed for the image, I could only imagine how they would feel. Share this article Share ‘Last night my image reappeared on my account and this morning I have received an email from Instagram with a brief apology and explanation of what happened, it was deleted due to “an error.”‘This doesn’t really change much though, I think it's just a very tiny part of a much deeper issue. I really hope that this small event will help to raise awareness. ‘No one should ever feel frowned upon for kissing his or her partner.’Bowen wrote on his Instagram page that ‘my relationship of seven years with [Lucifer has been] reduced to a Community Guidelines.’He Instagram, which claims to support gay rights, as hypocritical.‘[Instagram] spoon feeds us with rainbows and hashtags to appear in solidarity but it seems real people in love have no place here,’ Bowen writes.‘This is discriminatory and archaic and violates our right as a couple.’Instagram says the photo was removed by mistake.‘We want Instagram to continue to be an authentic and safe place for inspiration and expression,’ it says on its website.‘Help us foster this community. Post only your own photos and videos and always follow the law. Respect everyone on Instagram, don’t spam people or post nudity.’

Men's Body Image & the Pressure to Look Ripped | Darren Kennedy

Hollywood body ideals can wreak havoc on the self-image of normal human beings and result in negative outcomes. This is more true than ever for men who are now constantly bombarded with imagery of improbable six-packs, bulging biceps and real life "superhero" bodies. The pressure is there but it's your self esteem and how you feel about your own that counts. This is my take on it, with my personal experiences of coming to terms with my own body issues.

Why Gay Men & Women Fear Aging
 
05:41
When you're in your prime, you can feel the clock ticking and pressure mounting to achieve your goals before your "good years" are up. When you do become of a certain age, feeling more deflated and unattractive isn't uncommon. Ageism affects us all and perhaps more so for those of us who have already experienced other discrimination in our lives. I talk in this video about how our society has become so youth obsessed, how it can affect us, and what we can do to feel more valuable again.

Anti-Gay Republican Was Sending Men Dick Pics

Why are the politicians with dick pic issues nearly always named after penis slang? Seriously, why? It’s as if having a penis name as a legal name automatically sets up a male politician for a horribly embarrassing public downfall that involves a dick pic. So North Dakota State Representative Randy Boehning (R) should have seriously thought twice before 1) being vocally anti-gay rights, and 2) sending an image of his penis to some random person on Grindr...

Black Gay Men & Low Self Esteem
 
09:10
In my opinion, to be black and gay are two of the hardest identities that anyone can have to live with daily. While many of us, have learned to accept, embrace and most of all begin to love ourselves, the after affects of alot of the abuse that we have faced in our lives has left many of us traumatized, shaken and in many cases with our spirits battered. Low self-esteem often represents a form of psychological injury, one that often impacts us "systemically" and operates in a variety of contexts. Many of us spent countless hours at gyms, in spas, hair salons, clothing malls and shopping outs, on strict diets and even getting cosmetic treatments and procedures, one reason why we are often the most attractive men that one could feast their eyes upon. While many of us do this because we genuinely embrace physical self care more than our heterosexual counterparts, many of these things are done to create an image that will attract the love, admiration and acceptance that many of us are missing. Many times, the only time that we feel that love, is while having sex, posting half naked, or even naked pictures online, and by simply being the epitome of beautiful, often times while still being broken and empty inside. This is a result of the ill treatment that we have received from churches, our families, peers, politicians, and various other places, internalizing it and often times never healing. This affects our relationships, friendships and even ability to live with ourselves. And as a minority within a minority, we are very rarely encouraged to seek self care, treatment and other healthy remedies to issues such as these that often plague our community. In this session, we talk about ways it affects us and how we can conquer them. You only live once. Why not live in love with yourself and in wholeness? PLEASE SHARE, COMMENT, RATE, SUBSCRIBE!

Kiss Me - gay men kissing

I made this video of various images from the Internet of sexy gay (or straight) men engaged in sexy and romantic kissing, embracing or heavy petting. Jessie James' song Wanted (Put Your Lips on My Mouth) seemed to be the perfect companion to these images. No copyright or artistic infringement intended. Simply posted just for entertainment. I do not own this song or images. All images obtained from Internet web searches. Music and lyrics written/owned by Jessie James, Kara DioGuardi, Mitch Allan and David Hodges.

Are Gay Men Lucky? - MGTOW
 
12:17
"Hi Sandman, I'm a gay man supporting the MGTOW movement. The female friendships in my life have never been reciprocal in any way. Typically a female would use me as an emotional trash can, ask for fashion advice or even a second opinion on the attractiveness of males she's interested in. Whenever I've tried to bring my own emotional issues to the table and seek support, I've been met with a look of incredulity, a quick payment of lip service and immediate return to the female's issues. To me it is clear that the relationships between a gay male and a female are all about the female being the center of attention and the gay male being put in a subordinate position. I think on a subconscious level gay guys who seek such "friendships" want to receive female validation of their masculinity because of self-esteem issues." That's what Jaberwock87 has to say and what he says completely relates to my experience with a couple of women that hang out with mostly gay males. A few years ago I talked to a woman like this and tried to get to know her and I realized that most of her needs were being met by the gay males in her life. There was no way a single straight man could compete with her male harem of gay men. In this particular case I felt bad for these guys because they were being taken advantage of and they had this deer in headlights look on their faces. It's almost like they were trapped in a situation where they had to help this woman out but didn't know why. About six months ago I was contacted by a gay man and he said that some gay men have the same urge to protect women but at the same time they aren't interested in them for personal, physical gratification. After I heard this what I saw made sense. And if it is true then I feel bad for gay blue pill men that don't know about female nature. But if it really is true then it makes sense why many television shows over the last twenty years have shown gay men surrounded by women. Gay men without the influence of women have a lot of power to make change and be happy in their own lives. As gay culture became accepted in the nineties gay men were being socially conditioned to surround themselves with straight women. This was everywhere on television. And I think I finally understand why that was happening in real life. I don't know if gay men seeking out approval and validation from straight women is the real issue or if it instead has something to do with gay men still having the need to protect women hardwired into their biology.

Desperate Instagrammers, bar trolls, and Grindr sluts easily conjure up images that'll have any kween's eyes rolling for days. Though there's deeper context to a lot of sexual behavior, why does it so easily illicit such a visceral reaction in our own community? Check out my latest video on "Slut Shaming" to find out what it's about and what we can do to grow individually and collectively.

raphael perez visit my profile on facebook and add me to your friends list https://www.facebook.com/rafi.peretz.3 gay families photos and paintings collection of photos from flickr members who let blogs their images paintings by raphael perez LGBT parenting is when lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people are parents to one or more children. This can include same-sex couples where one or both are LGBT, raise children together, either through adoption, fostering, surrogacy, donor-insemination, or bringing children into the partnership from a previous relationship. This can also include single people who are parenting and to a lesser extent sometimes refers to issues where the children are LGBT. In the United States a third of lesbian couples, and nearly a quarter of gay couples, fulfill this role, raising over a quarter of a million children. All major agencies concerned with child-welfare agree that evidence shows that in terms of childrens' outcomes, lesbian and gay parents are as suitable as parents who are in heterosexual marriages. Many LGBT people are parents through various means including current or former relationships, adoption, donor insemination, and surrogacy; LGBT people are eligible to act as foster carers in some countries (such as the UK). In the 2000 U.S. Census, 33 percent of female same-sex couple households and 22 percent of male same-sex couple households reported at least one child under eighteen living in their home. [1] A lesbian or gay man may have children within a mixed-orientation marriage either because of a fear of discrimination, to manage Ego-dystonic sexual orientation, affection or love, [2] desire for family, [3] or spiritual reasons. [4][5] [6] [7] [8] Some children do not know they have an LGB parent; coming out issues vary and some parents may never come out to their children. [9] [10] LGBT parenting in general, adoption by LGBT couples in particular, are issues of ongoing political controversy in many Western countries, often seen as part of culture wars between conservatives and social liberals. In January 2008, the European Court of Human Rights ruled that same-sex couples have the right to adopt a child.[11][12] In the U.S., LGB people can legally adopt in all states except for Florida.[13] Because of these issues parents often choose to stay closeted in various ways.
