This post is hilarious, but I feel like I should say that in a lot of ways “gay travel” (though I cringe at the term) can be very different from straight travel. The primary example here is that there are a lot of countries and sadly U.S. states where it’s just plain unsafe for gay men and lesbians to either be openly affectionate or even to visit at all.
One of the best examples is Jamaica. Everyone thinks of it as this pristine vacation destination, but it’s a downright dangerous place for LGBT folks to visit. Those convicted of consensual same-sex relations in Jamaica can serve up to ten years in prison, and anti-gay violence and harassment is common. They don’t even let gay cruise ships dock in their harbors.
I know we’re supposed to be laughing at this ridiculous topic this person brought up on Facebook, but it’s a real concern for a lot of people.
Alright, so my mood changed. I found a couple posts to actually make me smile and laugh, which helped speed up the process. Sorry about that. I do apologize…hate myself like that. Quite embarrassing.
@mad2 I don’t know why they chose purple, but I’m up for it.
Perhaps because it’s not a common color like red, blue, yellow.
it’s made from a mix of 2 of the three, hence standing out and being individual and a weird way.
That’s what I guess anyways. I might be looking too far into it.
As a former texan – the logic is: “well, if you have 2 girls, that’s three holes… 2 x 3 = … hang on… *muttering* carry the two and a half.. cross referenced to the alligator entry in the encyclopedia Britannica… 6!”
@xenophobia yee haw. It’s alright, your cowboy self did it without a calcumalator.
Funny how I’m bisexual and didn’t realize about the purple representing gay pride. Any t-shirts, or poster, or the like that I’ve seen talking of gays or gay pride has always been the default rainbow symbol. I have a t-shirt that’s all blue, with two black male stick figures holding hands. The kind of stick figures you see to represent a men’s restroom. (the females have a dress added on lol)
A ‘rabbit’ is a kind of vibrator that has a dildo with an extension off the side that looks kind of like rabbit ears when they’re put back to provide clitoral and vaginal stimulation simultaneously.
Speaking of rabbits: they use humping to show dominance. Sometimes the dominant bunny humps the other rabbit’s face instead of hind end. In such cases, if the dominant rabbit is male, and the humped rabbit does not want to be humped, the underbun sometimes chomps the dominant rabbit’s penis. This results in an unpleasant situation both for the rabbit and in terms of vet bills.
More random rabbit penis information: Most mammals have a bone in the penis to help erect it called a baculum. Humans are one of the few that don’t. Rabbits also don’t have a baculum.
Some people think that the Hebrew word in genesis translated ‘rib’ should really be translated ‘baculum’ and that the jewish scriptures teach Eve was made from Adam’s cock (they think this aspect of the myth was invented to explain the lack of a baculum in humans).
Malison, thanks for sharing that info. I, for one, never really gave those particular instances much thought before. I thought the “gay travel” thing sounded stupid and unnecessary at first as well. Open-minded as I am I know I’m still pretty ignorant and naive about many things going on in the world.
Keona, of all people, did not know what a rabbit vibe is? I find this extremely hard to believe! o.O
And this is likely not related or even close to the reason for it… but the pentacle used in Pagan religions/practices has a color associated with each point. The top represents the Spirit which is almost always associated with the color purple (or occasionally silver). =) (The rest being as follows: upper left = Water = blue; lower left = Earth = green/brown; upper right = Air = yellow/white; lower right = Fire = red)
