Jacko, Gay?

Jacko is shocko at his associate's gay porno

SANTA MONICA, Calif. - A wide-eyed Michael Jackson testified he "was shocked" when he saw a video of his ex-associate actively directing a gay porn film, according to videotaped deposition shown in court yesterday.

The no-show singer's ghostly image was projected on a 4-foot-by-4-foot screen in the trial of a $1.5 million breach-ofcontact suit filed by his former video producer Marc Schaffel in Santa Monica Superior Court.

In the sworn testimony, which was taped in London's Dorchester Hotel on Sept. 23, 2005, and May 22, 2006, the pop star says he told his advisers to sever all ties with Schaffel as soon as he found out about his past employment as a porn filmmaker.

"I was shocked by what I saw. ... [Schaffel] was directing two guys. They were naked from head to toe ... and he was telling one what to do with the other and he grabbed their penis or something," said Jackson, who was dressed in a dark, striped, button-down shirt.

"I didn't believe it!" said Jackson, who had a house full of hard-core heterosexual porn magazines and DVDs when cops searched it in November 2003 before his arrest on child molestation charges.

Schaffel's lawyer, Howard King, asked Jackson if he was shocked by the "gay-themed show." But the entertainer said he was shocked to learn Schaffel had been "in that circle."

Jackson, who has twice been accused of sexually molesting teenage boys but never convicted, said he didn't think "mothers" would approve of his association with someone who made "gay pornography."

Jackson's insistence that he knew nothing of his ex-associate's porno past has opened the door for Schaffel to return to the witness stand and refute the claim.

In an earlier trial brief, King warned that if the singer went that route, Schaffel was prepared to reveal "their intimate discussions" and discuss "Jackson's sexual proclivities."

Jackson's videotaped testimony is set to continue today for about two more hours. Jurors will see three hours, 40 minutes of the pop idol in total.

In earlier testimony yesterday, Schaffel shed more light on a top-secret $300,000 cash payment he made to someone in South America immediately after Jackson was charged with molestation.

He said the money went to someone he labeled "Mr. X" in Argentina. He said it was "a very private transaction of a very sensitive nature for Mr. Jackson" and that he didn't record it in his business ledger at the time because "it was during the criminal matter."

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002.[1] It was created as an expansion of the San FranciscoBay Area Bisexual Network (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine, Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality, was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the stereotype depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves".[2] The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of sexuality and gender, to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat biphobia. - Wikipedia

No Apologies for Queer White Tears By Faith Cheltenham Delivered as a keynote address to the 2016 BlaQOUT Conference at UC Riverside on April 9th, 2016.
Black girl drinking White People Tears Gif White tears is a term that has a startling effect on white folks. Developed over time to describe the phenomenon of white people being upset at the very act of discussing race, it’s evolved into a funny yet, extremely effective way to describe white people’s discomfort in discussing the very racism they perpetuate.
One of the earliest articles available online about white tears written by a person of color is the 2007 College Student Affairs Journal article “When White Women Cry: How White Women’s Tears Oppress Women of Color” by Mamta Motwani Accapadi. In the article, Accapadi describes a case study of a white woman bursting into tears when being pressed by a woman of color about diversity resources at the college that employs them both. Instead of working on the issues affecting students, the c…
