Busy, Busy, Busy, Wisconsin Reconsiders Marriage Ban Bill, Keep The Idea's Coming, Monday MEME, Captured Cuties

The best of intentions, and things still get shot all to hell, lol. Didnt get a second post up yesterday, and didnt get the last 5 pages of the website updated this weekend. Sometimes this merry-go-round of life spins waaaaaay too fast. I have been launching some other projects this past week, even went to Cleveland for some interviews for an exciting project I am working on that I will get into sometime in the future when it has gotten off the ground. I hope you all had great weekends blogger friends and readers.

The elections are now old news, and it's time to set some agenda's to get to work and fix all that has gone wrong in this country the past 6 years. One bright spot, is that Wisconsin, though passing a marriage ban last week at the polls, has possibly
seen the error of it's ways, or at least it's "wording" ways. Wisconsin voters could get a chance to void sections of an anti-gay marriage amendment passed only a week ago. The state was one of seven which passed amendments to their constitutions to ban same- sex marriage. Wisconsin's goes further, also barring civil unions and possibly used to fight domestic partner benefits. During the campaign to fight the proposed amendment LGBT rights groups, lawyers and business groups argued the measure was so broad it would affect all kinds of non married relationships and hurt businesses trying to attract skilled workers. State Sen. Jon Erpenbach (D) says he is drafting a proposed amendment that would remove some of the broad language in the marriage amendment to limit it only to the issue of marriage. Erpenbach says that his amendment does not repeal the one passed last week but would open the door for civil unions. The ban on gay marriage would stand, he says, but provisions negating domestic partner benefits for straight and gay couples would be removed. It also would include gays and lesbians in a ban on discrimination. Religious conservatives dismissed the idea, saying that civil unions were nothing less than marriage by another name. Erpenbach said he intends to introduce the amendment in January when the new session of the Legislature begins.

I want to thank you all for some great ideas and imput on to what you would like to see added to the Gay Guru blog and website project. I got some terrific emails last week with some fantastic new ideas I will be trying to implement over the next couple months. As I told you, I think realistically, I am going to try for a January 1st extreme blog and website home makeover for all the changes I want to see happen. Some of the ideas I recieved was a "Gay Guru Watchdog Forum", a place that is interactive that we can all post any hate crimes to our GLBT community that has come to our attention. If we work together as a community to stop the hate and track the hater's, it will go a long way in ending discrimination. Another great idea was a "Gay Guru Job Bank", that would also be interactive where readers can post job openings to positions around the country, and heck the world, of jobs that are open and inviting to our GLBT community. A chat feature was also asked for, and that is something that can be arranged pretty easily I think. Keep those ideas coming, I appreciate all of your imput. I will also be looking for people to be writers and monitors for some of the upcoming features, so if you are interested, be sure to drop me an email at

Since we havent had a fun Monday MEME in a while, and since I had a little fun on the dance floor last week when I was in Cleveland, why dont you take this little MEME I found on our dancing skills. LOL, I love the part where it says when I dance, it's a little scary.....that's so me....HAHA! So what's your Inner Stripper Song??

Your Stripper Song Is

Closer by Nine Inch Nails

"You let me violate you, you let me desecrate you

You let me penetrate you, you let me complicate you

Help me I broke apart my insides, help me I�ve got no

Soul to tell"

When you dance, it's a little scary - and a lot sexy.
