I adore this shot. 

It gave me some ideas for a story I want to write.

Beautiful voluptuous woman being manhandled by her prince. Caressed and touched. 

She doesn’t look turned on yet.

Hmm, that may be a problem.

Perhaps he hasn’t hit the right spot!

Titillating Tuesday

Morning

This picture is beautiful

This couple made waves with a pic of both of them in the bathroom with the one of the fathers

doing his daughters hair.

Not sure why, people are just stupid

They can’t accept a loving couple regardless of gender.

They’re lovely and I wish them nothing but the best.

Interracial Reality

129“We need more positive role models on television showing black on black love in its best form.”

 “Why aren’t there any minority same race couples represented anywhere in the media?”

 “Why do black men feel they must go get a white woman when they are successful?”

 “…no positive examples to showcase who we really are.  No examples to show other Black gays of what a secure, functional, stable, happy relationship looks like. No examples for the Black gay male youth to strive towards when it comes to what a positive gay long term relationship resembles.” From Cypher Avenue Article referenced below.120

Greetings readers.

This is Veronica again with an article about mixed race couples. If you checked in on me yesterday, I posted some beautiful real life pictures of mixed race couples. Those pictures I found on Facebook on pages like Intergaycial and Black Women Love White Men Period. Those four pictures depict beautiful couples who’ve hopefully found their true love, and yet some people have a problem with it.

Why?

69I’ll tell you what spurs this on. Articles like this one on Cypher Avenue website where the journalist speaks about gay black athletes and interracial relationships. See the piece here. The author of this article sites examples of athletes who were or are in interracial relationships and how there aren’t enough positive examples of black male couples.

They speak of Michael Sam, for one, who recently came out and is shown with a Caucasian male who might’ve been his boyfriend. In the article, the author says he isn’t against interracial relationships but he’d like to see more black gay couples portrayed in society.

Again, he states that he isn’t against it but would like to see…

Yes, I get that sir, but as you stated in the article, you can’t expect the media to do what you want. Television and film does what the masses want or rather what they feel is reality. A lot of minority characters on the small and big screens play up to stereotypes like the angry black man, the ditzy blond, the weak minded Asian, the overly femme gay man, etc. A lot of what these writers do is put whatever they feel is closest to reality in their shows so positive same race couples of Latino or black decent won’t happen.943305_10151669009669974_230856303_n

And I have to ask, why is this a big deal? I mean, isn’t America, in particular turning into more of a melting pot? We have a black President for one, who is the product of an interracial marriage. Still, many in the country have an issue with him just because of that. Why must we continue to make race a bigger issue than it is? With conversations like these, we won’t move forward. We aren’t respecting people’s differences and in my mind, we’re indirectly saying we don’t want race mixing.

390573_10151669007794974_1858322491_nWhy can’t we love who we want without these kinds of talks? You say your reality is being around all black people in couples. Perhaps that’s what you chose to surround yourself with but, my reality is different. Mine is to be around people who love one another regardless if they’re of mixed or same race. If you have your preference, fine but again, when will we start squashing the outcries like the ones above? Can we not just move on from the race talk entirely? In my opinion, if we keep on saying things like this, we’ll always be stuck in a rut as far as race relations. We need to learn to be more accepting towards people as well as their preferences. 71

 

If your reality is all the same race, then I believe you need to step out into the true real world and live. Love is love, regardless of color, gender, religion, or nationality. Stop hating on those who found love outside of their race and let them live their lives and you live yours for you!

 

Love is Love

Macklemore, Mary Lambert, Madonna, Ryan Lewis, Queen LatifahGood morning readers. Whew, it sure is cold but the muse gets to stay warm inside Shar’s head while she goes out into the polar vortex to make some bacon. *grins* Well, did you watch the Grammys? Shar only watched part of it but we did catch the Madonna/Mackelemore/Queen Latifah performance of “Same Love” which had everybody talkin and or bawlin.

*raises hand*

I mean, what a beautiful display of love; 33 couples some of mixed race and or gender, getting married in front of most of the who’s who in music. It was lovely and I think a great message to those in society who want to hate on the people because of their differences.

971665_10151494259226174_682410364_nNo question, me, being an African American straight woman, I do love me some men. Yep, not a lesbian bone in me even though I have been known to look at a few beauties and do a little double take. Will I act on it? No, but I don’t have a problem with people who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgendered. And as far as the race thing, I’m a swirler. Don’t get me wrong, I love my black brothas but I lean more toward men of a difference race when I look for dates. They’re kind of a preference. Does this mean I won’t date any black men? No it doesn’t ‘cause I’m an equal opportunity lover and hell, I’m in my forties so in my opinion, one can’t be too damn picky but I do have a preference.

The point is love is love. Regardless of whether people are of different age, race, or same sex or race, it doesn’t matter. What matters is what’s on the inside first and if we’re drawn to a certain kind of man or woman then that’s okay too.

coltonford16 This really hits home for me since the man I almost married decided to come out the closet. He’s everything I wanted in a husband; he’s strong, manly, intelligent, and has a career. His name is Cleo and even though we didn’t make it to the alter he’s still my best friend. And he isn’t the gay man the media likes to portray. They’re getting better but Cleo grimaces when he sees the overly feminine, likes to go shopping, switching gay boy on television. Not all gay men are like that and Cleo definitely isn’t. And not saying there’s anything wrong with feminine men either. People are people and if that’s what makes them feel comfortable then it’s all good.

We’ll talk more about Cleo at a later time but the point is, love is love people. If everyone was the same, this world would be down right boring. If you find the right person in someone that’s of the same sex or of a different race, don’t stop it, embrace it. We know it in our hearts, just like I did with Cleo and heck, if it doesn’t turn into a commitment, wait for the next one. Hell, I’m still waiting but I won’t give up. I know there’s a good looking Mister out there who wants to be my significant other.

Shar’s inspiration for Cleo is Colton Ford
