Every so often I include a post entitled, Dick of the Week, but today’s Tweet from Arkansas State House Representative, Nate Bell, takes the cake and I’ve decided to make an exception and refer to him as Dick of the Year. If you’d like to express your disdain for Mr. Bell you may reach him the following ways.

As you can see from the date stamp in this Tweet, I’m a bit late to the game, but the message is still relevant. Explaining homosexuality is only difficult if you have difficulty with someone being gay. So deal with it because I’m not going anywhere, and I’m definitely not going to let you perpetuate your demeaning stereotypes no matter how much you rap your homophobic opinions in faith.
This tweet was making the rounds yesterday. In just 140 characters Will Ferrell has touched upon two current issues of social justice (not to mention common sense) that are near and dear to me. Wish he had thrown in a reference to the death penalty – could’ve scored the ever elusive #HumorHattrick.
While the US Congress continues to do nothing meaningful with regards to passing gun control legislation, Richard Branson took to Twitter to taunt their inaction. No doubt some of you will recognize the cadence of his tweet, which echoes the taunts hurled at President Johnson during Vietnam war protests.
Thanks to Joe.My.God for the tip.
Yesterday GLAAD reported that the band Train has also pulled out of the Boy Scouts of America event after GLAAD asked performers to reconsider supporting an organization that bans gay boys / young men.
While I’m hardly a Jepsen fan, I’m sure there are many who will be attending the Boy Scouts of America Jamboree who were excited to have her perform and perhaps her public decision not to join will help raise this issue again. Well done Carly and thank you to all the performers who have showed their support.
This afternoon I will dash off to the airport and if all goes according to plan, I’ll be checking into the W Retreat and Spa in Vieques by 8pm.
While away, my blogging may lag, but I’ll certainly be tweeting so join me on Twitter. On my last visit to Puerto Rico some of my tweets included hashtags like #HotDaddy and #UglyFriskyCouple. There is something so much more interesting about people watching while on vacation.

Some of you may not know that I’m addicted to
Every once in a while I fess up to this enjoyable addiction by mentioning it here on my blog. If you happen to have a Twitter handle, check me out and consider following my daily Tweets. My handle on Twitter is (you guessed it) BosGuy.
Guess which Twitter handle I’m now following.
President Obama’s response to Clint Eastwood’s routine at the 2012 Republication National Convention was the coolest dis I’ve seen on social media.
More about it here.
The Mayor of Reykjavik, Iceland clearly calls it like he sees it. I can appreciate his candor and find it refreshing for a politician to take a bold stand against homophobia and homophobic slurs. Hat tip to blogger, JoeMyGod, for bringing this to my attention by posting the Tweet.
Last week @BostonLesbian started following me on Twitter. This individual is a Twitter newbie, but I hope she sticks with it. If her profile is an example of her sense of humor, I think she’ll be fun to follow.
Her Tweets direct you back to a hilarious Tumblr page – this is my favorite, When Someone Tells Me They are Voting for Mittens.
You can follow this card-carrying U-Haul Party lesbian on Twitter here.
@MittStormTips is a hilarious handle worth following on Twitter. As the handle’s description says “Storm tips for the 1%”. Thanks for the tip little brother.
About a week ago onerebeldevil (on Twittah) posted this funny photo and was nice enough to share it with me. All I can think is there is a gay advertising executive with a wicked sense of humor.
For those of you who use Twitter, there is an interesting application that helps you find out how many inactive and fake Twitter accounts follow you.
A quick visit to the StatusPeople website showed only 3% of my followers are fake accounts (damned if I know which ones though) but a whopping 17% are now inactive. Not sure what I’m going to do with that tidbit of info, but I have to admit I thought it was interesting. Do you use Twitter? Check out StatusPeople.
