Gus Kenworthy Shut Down An Anti-Gay Parenting Twitter Troll

Another Twitter troll tried to come for one of Team USA's openly gay Olympians, but they didn’t get the last laugh.

Gus Kenworthy is currently enjoying himself now that he doesn’t have to focus on competing in Pyeongchang, South Korean himself. On top of that, he’s enjoying the bliss of his historic gay kiss recorded live across the United States.

But, of course, there are always haters and trolls with something negative to say online.

Continuing an argument that apparently originates from Daily Mail writer Richard Littlejohn, one Twitter user questioned the validity of gay parenting.

Apparently, Littlejohn wrote an article, which many believe to be a response to the Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black baby news, to say that gay couples shouldn’t be parents.

The Twitter troll then wrote to Gus Kenworthy, “Question is, if men marry men and women marry women who will produce children in this world.” [sic]

Kenworthy’s response put him in his place.

And of course, there were many fans on twitter waiting to back Kenworthy up.

But it was one user who pointed out how pointless the conversation was, because it turns out the original commenter is dedicated to trolling.

Matt LeBlanc Responds To Tweets Calling Friends Homophobic, Misogynistic, and More

Last month, the mid-90s to mid-2000s tv show Friends found its way to U.K. Netflix viewers’ screens.

While the show is on tv reruns constantly, this allowed fans to just watch all 10 seasons at their own will/pace, but sadly that caused some problems.

Viewers quickly went to Twitter to share their complaints about the series’s storylines. They called the story homophobic, transphobic, and misogynistic.

For instance, fans complained about Chandler’s discomfort and sometimes outright disgust towards his biological father who had come out as transgender.

“We don’t talk enough about how Chandler had 2 moms,” one person wrote on Twitter. “It was erased because Chandler was a homophobe and a transphobe, so he still called her his “dad”?”

In addition, others were not ok with Ross for being so hung-up on masculine gender norms such as being upset that his son was playing with a Barbie doll.

“I was just watching the friends male nanny episode and Ross is so rude and homophobic and problematic I hate him,” one person wrote.

“Re-watching “Friends” on @netflix is very enjoyable, but MY GOD was Ross Gellar a misogynistic homophobe,” another tweet said.

“Virtually every episode of Friends features a homophobic joke, the 90s were wild,” another tweet said.

Now after all the tweets have come out, and honestly after the buzz around this story had already died down, Matt LeBlanc is coming out to defend the show.

As he told the BBC: 

“I’ve heard those rumors too about people taking pot shots at Friends, but I don’t want to get into that. I disagree with all that.

“On Top Gear we tend to steer clear of any sort of political content, nothing too topical.

“On Friends we steered clear of that kind of thing, too. Friends was about themes that stand the test of time – trust, love, relationships, betrayal, family and things like that.”

On top of that, LeBlanc shared that even in his personal life he tries to steer clear of political or social justice discussions.

“I’m not in the business of making political jokes, politically incorrect jokes.

“I don’t want to make jokes that make people go ‘Ooh, that’s not my bag.’ I don’t like that, I run from that kind of stuff.

“Because that joke isn’t going to be relevant in six months. You talk about ‘Hey man, you lied to me,’ or ‘Wasn’t that fun?’ – that’ll always be relevant,” he added.

Some Philadelphia Football Fans Mistakenly Walked Into A Leather Bar (Guess The Bar's Name)

Some Eagles fans got a surprise when they walked into a gay bar instead of a sports bar.

While looking for a place to hang out for the Super Bowl, some visiting Eagles fans walked into the Minneapolis bar called the Eagle Bolt. Apparently, some people thought the bar was an Eagles themed sports bar and others chose the bar just because Eagle was in the name.

‘We were just walking around as we were looking for a bar,’ one patron told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

‘I said we’re stopping there, it says Eagle.’

Of course, these visitors quickly found out there were more bears than Eagles in the joint.





















Thankfully though, there was no conflict once the locals and the visitors realized what was up. In fact, the mix up was almost not worthy of noting (other than for a few laughs).

As Cyd Zeigler at Out Sports said:

"You don’t have to be gay to watch the Super Bowl in a gay bar. Heck, you don’t have to be a football fan either."

"You just have to be cool, and it sounds like a bunch of cool Eagles fans had the night of their lives in a gay bar called Eagle."

Bar owner Ed Hopkins agreed and said that things like this should be this simple. So what if it’s a gay bar? As long as there’s a tv screen playing the Super Bowl, the more the merrier.

“It assumes there is something wrong with realizing you are in a gay bar,” he said. “The people in tonight enjoyed being in our place.”

“The Eagles fans were very rowdy and fun. We enjoyed having them in our establishment.”

“The Super Bowl is supposed to bring everyone together that loves football. That is how the Eagle felt tonight.”

Gus Kenworthy Is Just As Obsessed With The US Bobsledding Team As We Are

Earlier this month, we shared with you gay twitter’s collective discovery, fascination, and thirst for the US bobsledding team.

Now, we’re proud to share with you that Gus Kenworthy is a member of that collective thirst.

Kenworthy shared on Twitter that he’s most looking forward to meeting the athletes at the 2018 Winter Olympics. We can only hope someone takes pictures when the moment happens.

Of course, then many people had to share their thoughts on the idea. The consensus being, “Yes, please!”

A Teen Came Out To Mom Through Splash Mountain Playback

We have your daily dose of fun and coming out stories in this one post.

In the age of promposals and viral videos, a California girl named Gina thought of an interesting way to come out to her mother.

She decided to leave a surprise message for her mother to find after enjoying the ride on Disneyland’s Splash Mountain.

We only wish the daughter had documented the moment when her mother saw the picture after the ride. We’re sure that was a real “Gotcha” moment.

But despite the fun and creativeness of Gina’s coming out, a lot of people are, understandably, distracted because of the other riders.

Many people commenting on the original post couldn’t stop but wonder, “What’s up with the other girls?”

Despite a few distracting faces, we want to share our support of Gina and her mother. We hope the best for you two from here on out.

Gay Couple Shares Their Love On Twitter & Twitter Had A Field Day

A Baltimore gay couple got a surprise when a tweet sharing pictures of their loving embrace went viral.

US model and community activist Shahem McLaurin, who founded and runs the non-profit called the Baltimore Star Project which works to raise funds for youth in the Baltimore area, was surprised a couple days ago with his twitter account suddenly blew up.

McLaurin shared a tweet of him and his boyfriend Quincy cuddling up for a few selfies with an attached caption going, “I can’t wait to marry this boy.”

It seems that Twitter had a lot to say about this as the tweet then received 21,000 retweets, over 116,000 likes, and over 1100 comments.

As you might imagine, many of the comments were sweet in nature and praised the two for their open display of love.



Some are shipping the couple a little too hard...


And of course, with the good came the bad. There were also some Twitter users who couldn’t help but share negative words for the couple.



Luckily, there were also a few people willing to fight back against these negative thoughts.


That said, the couple didn’t let this get in the way of their love. McLaurin’s boyfriend simply retweeted the original post with an additional quote saying, “Hurry up damnit!”


In addition, McLaurin used this opportunity to spotlight his non-profit and to piss off some homophobes.


Congratulations to the happy couple and we hope the best for both in future. (Send pics of the wedding!)

Twitter Users Not Having Trump’s “Excuse” For His Failed UK Visit

Late last night, Donald Trump tweeted out his excuse for why he wouldn’t be visiting London. And as is the usual, he’s blaming Obama for it.

As you might have guessed, many people on Twitter responded unfavorably to Trump’s tweet. Several were quick to point out that it wasn’t Obama who sold the old embassy, but former president Bush Jr.

On top of that, responses also liked to remind the president that its not like many Londoners (or Englishmen for that matter) wanted him to visit anyway.

In fact, the massive protests against the U.S. president's visit may have a factor, or be the sole reason, that he didn't cross the pond.

Over all, Donald Trump tried to share fake news again to make himself seem important and right. And, Twitter was there to point out how wrong he was (again).

This Gay Weatherman's Naughty Snow Forecast Is Educational & Entertaining

I wish this guy was my weatherman!

Blaine Stewart is a weather reporter from Norfolk, Virginia who posted a funny weather report tweet today that you’ve got to see.

As the east coast is gearing up for an onslaught of snow, Stewart wanted to keep his fans and followers informed. On top of that, he also wanted to entertain them a little.

As LGBTQNation reports, while posting a picture of the expected incoming snow caused by “Snowpocalypse,” Stewart also decided to whip out a little joke about the amount of inches everybody would be getting.

You can probably imagine where this is going.

Unfortunately, it seems that Blaine Stewart later regretted that tweet as he has since deleted it.

Too bad.

But, while looking up Stewart we realize that he's a very funny guy. We might have to tune into his station more often.

Check Out These Adorable Pics of Bruce Springsteen Kissing His Saxophonist

It seems Bruce Springsteen and the late saxophonist Clarence Clemons were known for their lip-locking performances.

Twitter user Dan Cassaro created a viral thread where he shared a bunch of pictures of the two performers kissing while on stage.

“They did it at every show,” Cassaro says.

As you probably guessed, some people loved the pictures and some were very much against them.

That said, the thankful tweets outweighed the negative ones. And at the center of all this was a deep connection and friendship that lasted until Clemons's death in 2011 and is probably still ongoing in Springsteen's heart.

Anthony Rapp Called Out Victim Blaming Fans After His Kevin Spacey Accusation

If you missed the starting point of what became the demise of Kevin Spacey’s career, you might not have known that it was a fellow actor behind it.

Anthony Rapp of Star Trek: Discovery and Rent fame accused Kevin Spacey of sexually assaulting him when he was 14 and Spacy was 26.

That then started a storm of accusations and stories of Spacey’s sexual misconduct in and around Hollywood that has, again, ultimately ruined the former House of Cards actor.

But now Rapp is sharing with the world some of the hate that he has received since his first statement.

Many fans have expressed outrage at Anthony Rapp for the messy ending of the Netflix show House of Cards and some even for the messy backlash that Spacey got.

That said, Rapp wasn’t going to let these angry souls have the last word. Instead, he shared their words with the world.

Rapp tweeted out a few days ago some screenshots of these angry messages saying that “these people need to be outed for their harassment.”

And he tweeted out A LOT of them.

From saying Rapp is the real villain, to asking why Rapp didn’t share his story earlier, to all other forms of victim blaming. You can check out the many messages that Rapp shined a light on down below.

Despite all of that anger, victim blaming, and hatred, Anthony Rapp did have kind words to say at the end of it all.
