Teenage Angst Literature

Teenage boys like to turn to a certain type of literature. It is literature that deals with people outside the norm; this resonates with teenage feelings of not belonging anywhere. The literature is so much part of growing up, it has become a rite of passage. The let down for all teenagers is usually when they find out that their parents have read the exactly same books in their teenage years, too.


Intersex Children Allowed in Germany

Tradition demands that a child is born as a boy or a girl. Tradition ignores the fact that one in 2,000 children is born with characteristics of both sexes in varying degrees. Germany's government and parliament have listened to these people. It is now to become Europe's first country to allow babies with characteristics of both sexes to be registered as neither male nor female. There are good reasons for doing this, and some consequences that have yet to be sorted out.


1D, 2D, or 3D? Confusing in More Than One Direction

I don't know if you're confused, I definitely get confused now. With a boy-band called One Direction (or 1D) whose members are possibly interested in two directions (boys and girls to spell it out) and bringing out a movie in 3D, who wouldn't be at least puzzled? But this multi-directional approach is probably one of the reasons for their success. And the movie, make no mistake, could make them the billion Dollar boys.

Outing Others

Outing others can take several forms. There are homophobic individuals or groups and haters who do it out of spite and pettiness. There are gays who do it out of wishful thinking or in a moment of pique. And then there are boys asserting their bragging rights. None of these scenarios are pretty.




Wear Skirts if Shorts Are Not Allowed

People with nothing better to do in some institutions and businesses feel called upon to decide what people are allowed to wear. Apart from their own atrocious dress sense, these executives have no other motivation or call to do so except self glorification on having implemented at least something in their otherwise useless life. Therefore, if shorts are not allowed, check the rules; skirts usually are allowed. Guys, get your skirts out!

  


Take a Ride

Despite the weather, cycling time is coming soon. Don’t miss out on showing off your prowess in riding. To make a ride satisfying and complete, a good bicycle is needed. There are a few things you should consider when buying one. Once you have found the perfect fit, nothing will stop you from slipping on, sitting tight and snug, and riding to your heart’s content day and night. 


Now Boxing Day is Over

Boxing Day is over; and you had several days to stuff yourself on all the goodies available over the holidays. There was all this delicious food and drink, and hours of sitting and gaming. Was it at least a most relaxing time and so good for the soul?

Santa Claus Family Album

A year ago, I was offered an exclusive view into what the guys at North Pole headquarters are up to when going on holidays: Santa Claus Undressed. This year, I have been granted an exclusive view into the family album of Santa Claus. As the North Pole community is made up of only male members, as we know from the history books (female members are the figments of imagination of some weird writers), the pictures are of the adopted sons of Santa Claus and what they are up to.




Summer Days Are Over

Summer is on the way out. Cold mornings, wind, and the rustle of leaves under your shoes tell their story of autumn (or should I say fall?) having come all too soon. Just the mention of shoes says it all. No more barefoot running at the beach, or better yet, watching others run.




Male Divers are Sexy: LMFAO

If you think +Tom Daley is sexy, then maybe you would like to take a good look at his teammates in Britain's diving team. Preparing for the London 2012 Olympic Games in Australia, they made a funny video. And they managed very well to show off all their muscles and other interesting parts, too.

Princes with a Gay Warrant

In the United Kingdom, your business is made when you receive a Royal warrant. Warrants are granted by +Queen Elizabeth II, the Duke of Edinburgh  and the Prince of Wales. The warrants accredit your business as a regular supplier to the Royal courts and attest the quality standard of your products and service.

Djokovic Plays Top to Nadal Bottom

+Novak Djokovic and +Rafael Nadal played an epic final in Melbourne's +Australian Open to establish the pecking order in men's tennis. In the longest grand slam final ever played, both players had their ups and downs until +Novak Djokovic established who has the longer stick. Beating +Rafael Nadal over five long sets, he defended his title from the previous year.

Zac Efron Reinvented

Zac Efron has reinvented himself. Or he has reinvented his body. The slim dancing teen has become Hulk Hogan while we were looking somewhere else. Nothing left of the young boy charm of Troy Bolton, and mothers should think twice to describe him as favorite son-in-law now. He now looks like the perfect sin-in-law for boys and girls (and mums and dads).

Louis Tomlinson: The Minder of One Direction

With his twenty years, Louis Tomlinson is the doyen of +One Direction (or Wand Erection as some twitterati call them). His tweets, should you read them, are more revealing than any live blog available. I am not sure that this was intended by the management. Either they forgot to tell him that they would write his tweets, or the person who does write it for him has a unique sense of humor (well, not completely unique, I share it and I am not the writer).

Fake Coming Out For Taylor Lautner

The Internet was awash with the cover of People's Magazine showing Taylor Lautner (clothed) and the headline about his coming out. Many fell for it. Those that were caught in the scam sensation were definitely not People's reader. I can't remember it ever appearing on a Saturday as this cover purported to do. And special double issues appear twice a year in summer and at the end of the year; for mid summer it is a bit cold right now, and the end of the year is usually on the other side of New Year's Day. That is at least how I understand it.

Most Wanted: The Wanted

+The Wanted are one of Britain's successful boy bands with a handful of candy twinks appealing to girls and gays alike. The five singing boys are Max George (Masimilian Alberto George), Nathan Sykes (Nathan James Sykes), Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness (James McGuiness), and Tom Parker (Thomas Anthony Parker).

Too Pretty for Dickens?

I for one think an actor is an actor. If he is a good actor, then watching him play is fun, if he is a bad actor, well then it is definitely no fun. Bad actors don't get better just because they are good looking or sexy. But seemingly, there are people who think that if an actor is too good looking then his acting becomes worse. Someone understand this as I don't.

Santa Claus Undressed

It is telling that Santa Claus and his community of elves have always been a male only club in American folklore until but recently. The invention of purely fictitious female characters doesn't change the reality of the real Santa Claus, though. I have been invited to take a view of what is going on behind the scene at the residence of the most famous person of today.




Strictly Gay Dancing

+Strictly Come Dancing has been a favorite to watch with the gay community for a long time running. The addition of Harry Judd to this year's contest has peaked any previous adulation for it, though. Harry Judd? Maybe I should say the drummer of +McFly to jog your memory. If you saw +McFly in years past, you would remember him as the runt of the litter, but an excellent drummer. He has matured into a most delicious hunk showing all the right moves.

Gay Soccer Players

Swedish professional soccer player Anton Hysén has declared himself to be gay in March this year. The news was met with varying degrees of shocked incredulity. Media all over Europe made a pilgrimage to Sweden to interview him. Organisations of all kinds and denominations tagged the hero label to his (admittedly very attractive) person. The only thing I find incredible about this story is that it was worth mentioning at all not to say the vast media interest. It just goes to show that soccer has a long way to go to get free of all kinds of prejudice.
