SCOUTS & GAY RIGHTS

To paraphrase the Italian saying “new year, new life”, we can say “new year, new boy-scout”… this year begins a new era for the famous BSA (Boy Scouts of America), because young gay finally can become scouts. It’s long that the gay issue had been raised to the top of the organization, for the presence of homosexual educators and in response to some charges.

As always happens in these cases, BSA’s leaders and parents’ opinions are conflicting, with those who are open and tolerant and those who are intransigent and antonyms.
Although, in principle, the association offers to train future American ruling class, a model for shaping young explorers’ minds and bodies, we are talking about boys and girls who, when they do not wear the uniform, are people like everyone else: young individuals who revel, probably drinking, smoking, and of course having sex. Nothing to be surprised or worried.
Yet, since 1991 gays (members or leaders) cannot join the groups, as they are considered incompatible with the oath required to keep themselves “morally strong.” And a gay, in their opinion, does not have this feature. Unfortunately, for many Americans, homosexuality is still considered a “disease.”

We face the usual hypocritical behavior, especially if wes take into account that among scouts, there always have been gay instructors and only God knows how many young people with a different sexual orientation (perhaps never disclosed). In the scouts camps, given the strict division between male and female, the living together,  sleeping or taking a shower together, becomes an occasion of “initiation” and promotes promiscuity, as it is well known that it also happens in colleges, military, or prisons.

The same happened at the YMCA (Young Men’s Christian Association), that despite its religious nature, it was known to be a place where gay guys could meet.
I wonder, between the current American ruling class, how many people have had similar experiences when they were scouts, as now they cry “scandal “?!
The same hypocrisy that comes out at the oath’s time, when each new member must swear “to do my duty to God and my country,” although it can be reasonably assumed that almost half of the members are atheists or do not have a strong faith (70% of the scout groups are run by religious organizations).

The past May, the majority of BSA’s delegates expressed in favor of the acceptance of gay scouts, a provision which, as mentioned, starts this year. A true revolution that obviously pleases the associations that advocate the cause of the aspiring gay scouts (Scouts for Equality and Inclusive Scouting Network), but it must be said that there is still firmly in place the exclusion for gay leaders.

After this measure, came the first opposition and protests.
The conservatives among the first, with the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute in Washington affirming that such a decision “will inevitably lead to a dramatic reduction of members”. The Baptist Church has instead decided to continue the fight, asking churches and families to commit and seek the repeal of this provision pro-gay. Like to say that a gay boy cannot live together other peers and must be emarginated! And
then we wonder that around still there are so many cases of bullying and discrimination. Absurd!

Thanks God, according to a recent survey 63% of the Americans agree with the decision not to exclude gay from BSA and 56% believe that gay adults should be able to become leaders too. A survey that gives results quite different than the previous ones…. sign that times are changing and…. hopefully for the better.

BARILLA NO-GAY

Barilla says NO to Gay Ads
The Jackal’s group reacts!

Our nation still is the emblem_ of closed-mindedness.
This time is the Barilla’s brand_ to impress_ the audience_ worldwide. While companies, such as Ikea, launch spot that continually refers to the “_new-families_” and “extended_families”, which are no longer simply made by dad, mum and son, some brands just draw back and still aim on the “traditional”.
The _tricolor-pasta’s producer_ declared_ itself against advertisements that refers to ‘non-traditional’ families, and about gay Guido Barilla said :
” …. I’ll never produce a commercial_ with gay people. If they like our pasta and  our communication, eat it!  If they do not like what we say, do without and eat another!”
With these sentences, the firm made Italia and abroad indignant.
_Napolitans_ also has remained agape, and the known Neapolitan group of independent_videomaking called “the Jackal” for only answer created a _clip_ dedicated to Barilla ads, but with a gay couple.

GAY & SUPREME COURT POSITION

Published March 28, 2013 by Tony

SUPREME COURT WILL NOT EXPRESS
AMERICAN HYPOCRITICAL BEHAVIOR

Why won’t Supreme Court express and will seek to distance itself, through some crazing  to avoid  making a decision on gay marriage?
Unluckily, the answer is easy but leaves bewildered.
Well, the Supreme Court will not decide because doesn’t want to “jump the gun”, does not want to take responsibility for making a decision which might regret in the future.
But, how?
In the world, the U.S. have always positioned itself, politically and socially, as a reference point, a model in step with times, and a liberal example to follow and appreciate…. and now?
Other nations have already clearly sided with this topic and we do not understand why so much hesitation and fear, especially on the part of the Supreme Court, which represents America anyway.
For them it is too early! Too soon for what?
What could happen in the future that may bring them to regret their approval on gay marriage?
Gosh! A lot of people do not expect this anachronistic and cowardly behavior from the most important and advanced nation in the world.
This behavior, kinda predictably, does nothing but stokes even more the reputation according which American people are hypocritical.
To wit, I do but do not admit it!
Obviously, in America there are a lot of gays, many of which still covertly, but also many people who like promiscuity or at least a sort of “sexual freedom” – and no one criticizes them for this, indeed! – but nobody has the courage to confess it and worse do not support even any law in favor of gay.
A non-sense somewhat disconcerting.

GAY HELP

Published March 15, 2013 by Tony

Nate's dad letter

This letter written from a dad to his gay son Nate is going viral on the Internet because of its simple, hopeful message of love.
It was posted on the Facebook page of FCKH8.com, an organization aimed at empowering youth through its snarky, gay-positive T-shirts, videos and activist campaigns.
I don’t know if this letter is real, but gives me the opportunity to launch a campaign to help and give words of comfort to all the boys, gay or not, who need it. I know how even a few words of understanding or a short chat of encouragement can be useful in times of distress. I am available to do so and I will respond to anyone who needs to hear a friendly voice. Those interested can write me to:  antveral@hotmail.it

LUCIO DALLA

Published March 3, 2013 by Tony

IN MEMORY OF LUCIO

Lucio Dalla

“Large sheets to cover ourselves I do not have…. and if life has no dreams I’ll take them and give to you”

Today is your birthday… best wishes to you, Lucio!

Lucio Dalla (Bologna, March 4, 1943 – Montreux, 1 March 2012) was a musician and a popular Italian singer-songwriter.
Nobody expected it and the morning of 1 March 2012, by a heart attack at age 69 in the Ritz Hotel in Montreux, where he had performed the night before, Lucio left us, with discretion but too soon!

Throughout his long career, which reached fifty years of activity, he has also performed as a keyboardist, saxophonist, and playing the clarinet, his passion from an early age.His extensive artistic production has gone through many phases, from the beat to the rhythmic and musical experimentation, from the songwriting till the boundaries of classical music and opera. Lucio Dalla was also an author known abroad with some of his songs translated and brought to success in several languages, in addition to many duet with artists, nationally and internationally.
Its success takes root in 1971, when for the third time he participated at the Festival of Sanremo with the song “4/3/1943” (his birthdate), a censored song initially called “Gesù Bambino” (Baby Jesus), and that talks about a girl mother, who has a son with an unknown ally soldier.
The success was consolidated the following year when still in Sanremo he sang the touching “Piazza Grande“, dedicated to a homeless man in Bologna, his beloved hometown where he lived. The city that in 1999 gave him an honorary degree in “Arts and Lucio DallaPhilosophy”.
During his career he has worked with numerous artists, Gino Paoli, Luigi Tenco, Roberto Roversi, Francesco De Gregori, the Stadio, Ron, Gianni Morandi, through whose collaboration many of his songs were born.
In March 1986 the tour with the group “Stadio”, for a series of concerts abroad, culminated with performances in the United States from which the double live album “Dallamericaruso.” arose. In this album is the song “Caruso”, that recounts the last days of the great tenor, and that will give to the singer from Emilia-Romagna, an extraordinary success. The song, which has sold nearly 9 million copies worldwide, is now considered a classic of Italian music. Over the years, the song has been interpreted by many artists of various nationalities, including Mercedes Sosa, Celine Dion, Michael Bolton, Lara Fabian, Julio Iglesias, Andrea Bocelli and Luciano Pavarotti. The song translated into several languages, to date, has sold over 38 million copies worldwide. The singer has repeatedly explained the genesis of this song: “a song of the heart,” born from an intense and unexpected trip in Sorrento. Because of a boat broken, he was forced to stop along the Sorrento coastline, in the same hotel and room where years before the great tenor Enrico Caruso had died.
Lucio’s mother was originally from Puglia, where the singer often went, and here his love for the South and especially for the sea was born, to the point to spend every summer at Tremiti Isles, as well as Lucio loved Naples, where often he docked his boat. In fact, in 1997 he was awarded the “Honorary Citizenship” from the town of Sorrento. Once he said: “I have been influenced by the existence of Totò (note, the Neapolitan artist Antonio De Curtis Gagliardi), in all its forms, for me he was a myth. The beauty of Totò is the beauty of Naples. Naples, not easy to say, seems a city, but is not, it is a nation, a republic….. the admiration I have for Naples’s people was born out by this love for Totò…. Naples is the mystery of life, good and evil are mixed, but pulsate however“. About his love for the South, in an interview he said: “It was during these vacations as an emigrant backwards, which took place in me the split between two different ways of living. So today I have two souls: the northern one (orderly, efficient, futuristic, perfectionist, demanding to themselves and to others) and southern (disorganized, wild, sensual, dreamy, mystical), it is in the south that I became religious, of a religion frantic, irrational“.
Marco AlemannoFrom February 2007 began a collaboration with Marco Tutino, artistic director of the Teatro Comunale of Bologna, for the preparation of some opera and theater works, and it is here that the long-lasting friendship with Marco Alemanno, becomes more apparent. The Lucio Dalla “different” sexual orientation was known to his few close friends and not to the public, at least not officially. Although because of his success he had the “prigs” (fucking moralists) in the palm of his hand, Lucio remained silent, refusing to declare his homosexuality, fearful of the moralists’ judgment, as if, on the contrary, they were to have him on a string. That is why he had to “disguise” his feelings in the songs, sometimes inventing female names and faces of fantasy. He gave and inspired emotions, hiding his own ones.
Marco Alemanno, born in 1980, left his small town to pursue his passion for art in the city of the great Lucio Dalla, where their paths crossed to then separate tragically on March 1st of 2012. Marco followed him in every show and in every battle. In 2007, Marco appears on Lucio Dalla album “Il Contrario di me” (The opposite of me), as producer and co-author of some texts. The following year, he publishes “Gli occhi di Lucio” (Lucio’s eyes), a book with a DVD-written with Lucio and containing Dalla photographs and unpublished writings. Marco appears again in 2009 as artistic producer and co-author of some songs in the album “Angoli nel cielo” (Angles in the sky), and the year after participated in Dalla & De Gregori tour “Work in progress”, as singer and narrator.
Marco Alemanno has gained a lot of notoriety for the moving words with which he reminded Lucio on the occasion of his funeral in Bologna. His talk brought some controversy about the fact that the singer had never formalized his relationship with him, while the Catholic Church has condemned his intervention during the funerals in church. In his funeral speech, Mark has played some verses of the song by Lucio “Le Rondini” (The Swallows): “I would like to understand, in short, what love is, where is that you take and give it”.  Then, before bursting into tears, adding: “For some time now I had the pleasure, honor and privilege to grow alongside Lucio, singer, musician, filmmaker, and above all the man, eternal child, to whom I owe so much.

Since the singer did not leave a will, his inheritance, estimated at approximately 100 million euros, will be divided between his five first cousins. In the absence of a specific bequest, Marco Alemanno, intimate partner and resident in the same house for several years, has no legal rights.

I want to highlight that, although the ‘coming out‘ is a something useful and liberating for themselves and for those who are less strong, we cannot expect it to be a mandatory practice. People are different, have different thoughts and stories, and there are no rules with regard to their privacy. It would be nice and fair that we all take for granted that love, joy & sorrow’s sharing, and humanity were fixed rules regardless of our beliefs. And then “everyone will love how it goes,” as our dear friend Lucio sang and hoped.

Although the discography of this great songwriter includes twenty-two studio album for the Italian market, a Q Disc, nine live albums, several books and albums for the foreign market, among the many beautiful songs that Lucio has left us, and in addition to those already mentioned, I want to mention: L’Anno che verrà, Attenti Al Lupo, Anna E Marco, Tu Non Mi Basti Mai, Come E’ Profondo il Mare, Caro Amico Ti Scrivo, Stella Di Mare, Disperato Erotico Stomp, L’Ultima Luna, Telefonami Tra Vent’anni, Un Uomo Come Me, Cara, Nuvolari, Il Gigante e La Bambina, Balla Balla Ballerino, Futura.  (The Year to come, The Wolf, Anna and Mark, I Just Do not You Never Come and ‘Deep Sea, Dear Friend I am writing, Star of the Sea, Erotic Stomp, The Last Moon, Call me Between Twenty years, A Man Like Me, Honey, Nuvolari, The Giant and The Child, Dance dance Dancer, Futura).

Here’s the literal translation of his words showed in the picture below the title.

“Of many houses, not any one that has no windows, any shred of sky over the roofs of the city, where I lived and where I listened, checked, tried the beating of your heart, your breaths, your curses, the noise of your dreams, the mysterious small daily killings and the miraculous births that every day God sends us and which take place under the skies of all countries and of all the cities on overcast nights of stars. It is from there that have fallen words, stones, stories and sounds that arrive to me by the beautiful deception of love that never ends, or the sensuality of the best encounters, those dreamed, those where there are no more break ups, where you don’t die or die is just disappearing under a sweet, lovely snowfall. It is from that glimpse of heaven and heart that I will listen to you even when no one will listen to me, that I’ll still be looking for you although you will not be looking for me anymore. And from up there, until there will be a window, my heart will sing the life and story that takes it.”

.

Dear Lucio, although I respect your discretion and silence, I would have liked if you had had the courage to shout to the world your “diversity“, because coming from a great man like you, this would tell someone else that there is no “diversity” as these others still think.

PORNO CARTOONS

Published February 12, 2013 by Tony

EROTIC TOONS


It was to be expected that pornography would invade the world of cartoons, with satire towards some famous characters. Since characters toons aren’t associated with any actor, cartoonists and illustrators feel even more free to create pervert scenes. From Mickey Mouse to Homer, the web is full of characters cartoon naked and very often engaged in hardcore scenes, sometimes through entire comic books series even.
To be targeted are obviously the more recent cartoons like Simpsons, Family Guy and Futurama.
I realize that drawing Donald Duck naked while having sex with Daisy may seem irreverent and insane but, licentious representation or not, is funny for me, and I have found some for you.
Unless nudity and sex are still taboo and a shameful for you, these images will make you laugh and maybe excite too.

Please, note that these images are suitable for an adult audience.

BSA and gay members

Published January 28, 2013 by Tony

I’m reading the news: “Boy Scouts of America is discussing discussion ending a longstanding ban on gay members …”
It seems not to be in 2013 and not happening in the U.S.!?

But damn! Are we still arguing about this?

It makes me sick even to ask rhetorically if an instructor or a boy should not be members because of his sexual inclination! ABSURD!
In other words, it’s the same asking to send home all leaders or teachers gay, and while we’re at, some might even ask you to banish all those who have a disability or are black … because under this point of view they also can be considered “diverse” compared to the “normality” that these gentlemen are taking as a reference, according to their twisted mind.

But be serious, please!
