A few posts I wrote for The Bilerico Project are now live—one's unintentionally controversial, one's a bit absurd, and one's full of hot men:
• In "Tel Aviv Has Balls," I wrote about gay Israeli athletes, used the phrase "hunky Israeli soldiers" in reference to a movie I saw, and mentioned that gays served openly in the military in Israel. Because I chose not to reference the current Israeli military attacks in Gaza and because I chose to move forward with the light-hearted post, in the comments section I've been accused of bad timing, insensitivity, being offensive, and a number of other charges. Anyway, the thread is pretty interesting because it deals with issues of journalistic etiquette and has evolved into a discussion about Israel, world military powers, LGBT responsibility, and my supposed disingenuous response to comments.... Now I may have committed a journalistic faux pas—but seriously, folks? Seriously?
• In "Unintentionally Homophobic, Virtually," Sony's virtual world of PlayStation Home comes under attack for denying users the ability to use words like "gay," "lesbian," and "bisexual."
• In "12 Hot Asians and 12 Hot Mormons Walk Into a Bar...," I write about hunky calendars—perhaps the most imporant post I have ever written for The Bilerico Project.
