Not to be confused with yesterday’s Daily Badass, David Hasselhoff, this is Murphy. How could I resist posting this video of Murphy chilling at the beach with his foster family? This dog loves the beach!
Murphy is an approximately 1 year-old collie/shepherd mix known to all as 49 pounds of loving, handsome hunk. He came to Brooklyn a little green on the training front but has blown everyone away with the smarts and good nature that back up his good looks. His foster mom says, “Murphy is THE BEST! We’ve fostered over 12 dogs now and he is by far the friendliest. Everyone loves him, and he loves everyone. We get stopped on the street all the time because people want to know what breed he is because he’s so friendly and handsome He has a really dopey disposition and is always smiling, which is why it surprised me at how easy he was to train. He learned “no” within a day and sit within 15 minutes! I’m not joking. I was dumbfounded at how smart he is - he picks up the commands so fast! He’s also the best cuddler! He loves to be pet, and he loves to just lie down or sit by you but he doesn’t lick or slobber on you which is nice. He has the sweetest eyes and is really playful. But he tires out really easily. He’s house trained, great with other dogs, needs some work on walking without pulling and not begging but other than that he is perfect. I’m jealous of the person who adopts him because he’s SUCH a great dog .”

In America, people wear jean shorts and drink overpriced beer at sporting events. In England, these dignified chaps wear collars and hair product to watch a soccer match (Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur, so English). Especially liking Romeo’s oversized-but-tasteful gold watch. I miss these people.
The present war in Afghanistan, now nearly 12 years old, has affected the lives of millions of women. Many have been victimized; others have played the roles of soldiers, insurgents, politicians, caregivers, and much more. NATO nations have sent thousands of female troops into the conflict, assigned to combat teams as well as support positions. And the women of Afghanistan have been caught in attacks from all sides — restricted by conservative laws, traumatized by bombings, and victimized at home. According to the UN, the rate of violence against Afghan women is on the rise, even as the number of civilian casualties have been dropping. As western nations begin their draw-down, training and literacy programs are ramping up, in the hopes for a stronger role for the women of Afghanistan after 2014. The photos here are part of the ongoing series here on Afghanistan.

"And just ‘cause the sun shines don’t mean you’re on my mind" Schwartz 2013
On the surface, this drawing is of me bottoming for my favorite porn star while the people in my head cheer and applaud because it’s been so many years since I got any butt action. On a deeper level, this drawing represents what I learned about being gay before I realized I was gay. As a kid,I would hear that being gay meant you took it in the butt and this idea sounded so weird and foreign to me. I knew straight people fell in love, got married and had kids but gay men were into bizarre sex with no love, no feelings and no commitments.
When i started dating men, it hit me that sex was a very minor part of being gay. There is the companionship, the friendship, the affection and most importantly, meeting someone who you identify with because you shared the same struggles growing up in a world you don’t fit into. Sex is important in a relationship which is why i draw so much about my lack of it and how frustrating and hopeless my situation is. But if butt sex was the only thing I thought about, then I would be single.
I created this drawing as a sarcastic over-exaggeration of what it means to be gay in post-DOMA America. Despite DOMA being struck down, we still have all kinds of politically powerful right wing assholes who spread lies saying that all gay men are sex crazed maniacs who don’t fall in love and live just for pleasure.
The bottom figure is wearing a Reagan mask because in my lifetime, he was the most destructive in decimating minorities. And by that i mean the poor, the gays and the mentally ill. AIDS exploded like a holocaust under his presidency, Crack spread like wildfire in the inner cities and he shut down mental health facilities. This all occcured while the gap between the rich and the poor increased beyond what anyone thought previously possible.
