Danny Pintauro’s interview for HIV equal

I'm in two minds about this. It's certainly a lot better than that revolting ambush he got by the bitches on The View though. Here he can talk without dumbass questions being fired at him from the ignorant.

However I still cringe when he talks about going down a "dark path". What does that mean? It's like he's blaming himself for making bad choices and the consequences of those choices were becoming HIV+. I don't agree with that at all.

HIV doesn't require a bad choice made to sneak into your body. You can be doing everything right and still get it. You don't have to be taking meth or exploring bondage to get it. Anyone can get it, even when they're living a "good clean" life.

BTW yes I got it in a very compromising situation (*blushes*) which many would consider a "bad choice". But to me it's why was that bad choice made in the first place? Was it my fault life had fucked me over and spat me out? Was it my fault I was alone and no help provided? Where were the social programs to intervene? I just don't accept that blmae is a part of getting HIV.


Adani Carmichael mine on it's last legs

Resources minister Josh Frydenberg said yesterday on the radio regarding funding to Adani from the gov:
"Adani needs to stand on its own two feet... it wouldn't be a priority project for the Commonwealth."
It appears the Abbott rhetoric of propping up Adani with taxpayer money to get the infamous Carmichael Mine and Abbot Point projects built has changed under Turnbull. Could it be he actually sees sense? Coal prices have collapsed and will likely never recover, and Adani will be hard pressed to even find a customer for thermal coal once it is mined.

You can email Josh Frydenberg here and tell him to categorically rule out gov funding for Adani. Without that funding, the mine is probably doomed and will never go ahead. Private companies don't want to have a bar of it.

Gay marriage will kill someone - christians

Nice :s  Apparently gay marriage is going to cause the death of christians. This of course from the christians who cherry pick their morality from the bible. In this case it's us evil gays who are wrong.

I would like to point out then, as I cherry pick bible morality, that women aren't supposed to cut their hair, let alone wear harlot make-up. Honestly, she looks like a slut at the local pub dressed like that (to be read in an authoritative preacher type tone). But OMG the gays!
7 For a man indeed ought not to cover [his] head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.

8 For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man.

9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.

10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on [her] head because of the angels.

11 Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord.

12 For as the woman [is] of the man, even so [is] the man also by the woman; but all things of God.

13 Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered?

14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?

15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for [her] hair is given her for a covering. more  
No make up ladies or you're Jezebel. So why the double standards? Why is it OK for a bible bashing female to get on the air with cut hair and make up and her to ignore the parts of the bible that say so? Why doesn't she ignore then the gay parts? Why is it OK for her to proclaim cultural differences with the desert dwellers from 2,000 years ago for her, but not for us?
Jeremiah 4:30 - And [when] thou [art] spoiled, what wilt thou do? Though thou clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest thee with ornaments of gold, though thou rentest thy face with painting, in vain shalt thou make thyself fair; [thy] lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life.

1 Peter 3:3-4 - Whose adorning let it not be that outward [adorning] of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; (Read More...)

1 John 2:15-16 - Love not the world, neither the things [that are] in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. (Read More...)

1 Timothy 2:9 - In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

1 Peter 3:1-22 - Likewise, ye wives, [be] in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; (Read More...) 
2 Kings 9:30 - And when Jehu was come to Jezreel, Jezebel heard [of it]; and she painted her face, and tired her head, and looked out at a window. more

Angry Aussie does the TPP :)

Australia just signed the dirtiest deal you've never of - GetUp

An excellent video from GetUp, explaining just how bad the TPP is and how much we need to have this blocked in the senate.


The "gay agenda" explained - by a gay :)

The "gay agenda" is that strange and mysterious thing that us gays haven't really got a clue what it's about. Apparently something to do with world domination and converting impressionable people to gayness. 

See we'll start with the gay marriage thing, destroying traditional marriage in the process. Two birds with one stone you know. 

Then we'll move onto other things that are involved in world domination. Like Orwellian brainwashing people's heads into multiple colours. Getting them to like disco music. Making them actually like us instead of hating. Spreading HIV to kill the straights that we conned into having sex with us (yes, we've been accused of that by the nutters). All part of our evil dastardly plot to take over the world!

Gosh, so many things to do in this world domination thing. Perhaps I better make a list. 


Good news from the Albion St pharmacy

I went there the other day thinking I'd have to pay for the HIV prescription I had as it was previously written before 1st Oct and I didn't have the form that we've been told we require. So I thought I'd have to pay for this last prescription before getting the next one written.

However when I went in there the pharmacist told me there was no co-payment. I asked "I thought I needed a form?". She replied that no that was fine as the Albion St Centre did all the paperwork there. Excellent! It was free.

So if you have a prescription but don't have the form for the free prescriptions, don't worry just go to Albion St and they don't care :)


Release the TPP text now! - Greens

Add your name to raging against the Trans Pacific Partnership here. Tell Turnbull that we the Australian public deserve to know what's in the secret TPP that our gov has signed.
What we DO know about the TPP is this: 
  • Big pharamaceutical companies have been at the table pushing for their interests to be protected. This could come at the expense of affordable medicines and health care in Australia. 
  • We do know that “ISDS clauses” have been included in the agreement which means big corporations can sue the government for acting in the public interest. 
  • And finally, it looks like the TPP is going to make it harder for the government to take strong action on global warming. sign to protest  

Jailed for sodomy & sodomised by cops.- Tunisia

A Tunisian man has taken the unusual step of going public about his treatment at the hands of the Tunisian authorities, after being given a 1 year prison sentence for being gay.

He admitted having sexual relations with a man, but despite this the authorities had him sodomised against his will by getting a forensic anal probe done to test if he was gay in a local hospital (one would assume a history of constipation wouldn't be desirable in such a case). Such a thing is classified as torture by human rights organisations.
"Another statement was drawn up and my client had to undergo an anal exam against his will," Braham said. The man was then subjected to an anal probe in a nearby hospital to "verify" whether he was indeed a homosexual. Prosecutors submitted the test as evidence in the trail, and the court found the man guilty of violating article 230. He was given a one year prison sentence on September 24. 

"I don't understand why I was sentenced," the accused told the AFP afterwards. "I want to get out and resume a normal life...I wonder what I'm going to do about my job and studies. I don't want to be rejected by society." 

The case is currently being appealed. Guellali with Human Rights Watch says the whole affair is emblematic of "widespread arbitrary law enforcement" practices in Tunisia, and shines a light on how out of step the country's legal system is with international norms. Prosecuting people for consensual sex, Human Rights Watch says, violates Tunisia's commitments under international law. And the practice of anal-probing constitutes torture under the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights, the Convention Against Torture, and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights — all of which Tunisia has ratified. more  

The great computer meltdown :s

*good grief*

So David came across this online game a while back on his PC, Zynga poker. He got right into it and had some online "buddies" that played with him. To be honest I think it was getting a bit over the top as he was constantly playing the thing. It was really demanding of his time as well, as he couldn't even go to the toilet at times until he'd done this or that. 

Experienced onliners would realise that that's just too much and you should pull back a bit, but as much of this online stuff is still new to David he couldn't see it. This went on for some weeks to get to that point. At the worst he was staying up until 3-4am playing it, as the US players get up in the mornings at about our midnight.

And then it happened.......

Something happened at their end in the US with the game. Some technical hitch that saw various people not be able to log in. The screen would just say "login failed, please check your internet connection". 

Of course that was the only site that wouldn't work in the entire internet, but that message puts it on you to think that maybe it was a problem at our end. I said straight away it wasn't and it was their problem, and that I had no idea what happened at their end, that it was impossible to fix from our end, and that was that. These things happen with the internet. I mean the site is clear across the world in the US.

Then oh the wails and anger of despair. Wanting me to fix it. I'm saying I've got not the faintest idea how to. Demanding that I drop everything in the middle of whatever I'm doing to help him log back in. I said I can't. He gets the shits because I'm "not helping him", and all the unreasonable bla that goes along with a situation like that.

This goes on for 4 days.

At first to me it was, well this will be a internet learning experience for him to not let him get so addicted and involved in one single site. But as the days passed he was getting worse. Never wanted anything to do with the internet ever again. Wished he never bought the PC. Threatened to throw it against the wall at one point (I simply said "well it's your PC you can do what you like with it"). 

After three days of me politely helping him out for a few hours or so to no avail, and him getting more and more over the top about it, by the fourth day I'd pretty well had enough of such juvenile behaviour. We argued about it on the fourth day, me telling him to grow up basically and not spit the dummy over nothing.

The most I could do for him was to get him to explain his concerns on the Zynga forum so that admins could address the problem (forums were new to him as well), and to set up a facebook account with him so he could play it through facebook. 

Surprise surprise, the Zynga admin said it was a problem on their end that they were "working on" (I resisted the temptation to say "I told you so"). But it did give a space for David to vent his frustration about it all directly to a company representative. 

The facebook thing seems shit as it keeps freezing and coming up with the unresponsive script thing, and he loses chips (just free BTW). 

He has now become more reflective and aware of the traps you can fall in during these days of cyber existence.

He's now discovering lots of his friends are on facebook and is getting in touch with them.

After 4 days he's finally taken it as a learning experience and started to move on. Whew.

Washing the dishes can calm and focus your mind - study

Who'd have thought washing the dishes could calm and focus you? Turns out that if it's done in a mindful way it does just that. 

Mindfulness is when you focus on the present surroundings. Instead of worrying about the future or emotional about the past, you come into the present and calm your mind. 
When done properly, the chore decreased nervousness by 27% and increased mental inspiration by 25%. 

Mindful dishwashing can decrease stress and calm the mind, a new study finds. 

People in the study focused on the smell of the soap, the feel and shape of the dishes to help them enter a mindful state. 

Doing the dishes in a mindful way also increased the pleasurable feeling of time slowing down, the researchers found. 

Mr Adam Hanley, the study’s first author, said: “I’ve had an interest in mindfulness for many years, both as a contemplative practitioner and a researcher. 

I was particularly interested in how the mundane activities in life could be used to promote a mindful state and, thus, increase overall sense of well-being.” more
Excellent. I do the dishes in the mornings. Looks like I'm onto something :)

Malcolms's poll honeymoon

Our bright shiney new leader has some bright shiny new polls. With his winning smile and harmless countenance, he has wone the hearts of a nation sick to fuckin death of Abbott. Said nation is now repaying Malcolm for getting rid of the turd nightmare with lovely new polls like a bunch of bright fresh flowers.

The hard bit for Malcolm will come when he tries fucking with penalty rates and the like. But no one is thinking of that now. Just a big load of gratitude to Malcolm for delivering us from Abbott's evil. grasp :)

All hail Malcolm, our kindly conquering hero! He talks in actual sentences and not slogans! Words of multiple syllables! Australia is aghast at being spoken to like adults!

Going to get bloody hot in Australia this Spring - experts

El Nino is coming back they say. We've had very mild summers here for the last three years, at least in Sydney, whilst California has had major drought. Now it's going to shift back this way. At least the US west coast will get some needed rain.

Danny Pintauro got HIV through oral sex - rare

Wow, that is so rare. I've personally only heard of one other person like that. He was really frustrated in a support group saying he'd done everything right but still got it through oral sex. If the bloke he was having sex with was on meds and his HIV viral load was undetectable, Danny wouldn't have been infected.


Drunk student's violence at not being served in school cafateria - US

OMG! Some people just shouldn't drink. 

Watch as he launches into the usual "you're a faggot" bla, physically pushes the cafeteria manager,  and eventually arrested by the cops. 

Honestly, for some reason or other this is the most captivating video. Not sure why.
