Paragon renegade tatt ?... ;)Kotaku brought this fabulous FemShep poster in the Art Nouveau style to our attention this morning, and after poking around Mwar’s DeviantArt gallery we found even more goodies. Generally when I see fan art done “art nouveau” style, it’s in imitation of musical hall posters of the early 1900’s and the characters are depicted lounging or standing… the composition is always gorgeous but the ladies generally look passive and unfocused. Not so for these pieces, full of guns held at the ready and alert and piercing looks. More behind the jump.
Due to China’s internet censorship policies, I’m not sure if this next museum shows up in any Google searches over there. Next time you have a fit of paranoia, remember the size of China’s Internet Police is rumored at more than 30,000 (or the same number of people who die in motor vehicle traffic-related deaths every year). Anyway, China’s first (and only) Museum of Sex opened in 1999. The museum’s founder Dr. Liu Dalin, or the Dr. Ruth of China, completed a national survey on sex over twenty years ago. His findings have been called “The Chinese Kinsey Report”. So he’s obviously an expert. Or just a creep. Located fifty miles outside of Shanghai (because the city government drove them out of town, those pervs), the exhibits cover nine thousand years of people doing it and are divided into sections with names like “Unusual Sexual Behavior” and “Sex in Primitive Society”. It starts with rudimentary dildos (a label states that lesbians used them) and many ceramics in phallic form and ends with a contemporary poster of two muscular guys, shirtless and in tight jeans, with the caption “The Gays” (homosexuality was classified as a psychological disorder in the country as recently as 2001). Oh, and there is also an interesting artwork titled “The Apple and the Snake” (NSFW). And before you leave, don’t forget to check out the statue garden full of giant penises while meditating in the tea pavilion. Thank you and have a nice day.

The Festa de São Gonçalo in Amarante, Portugal is an old fertility tradition where those that are unmarried exchange some rather intriguingly shaped cakes as a token of their affections!

This Is All Kinds Of Wrong of the Day: Earlier this month, a North Carolina pastor suggested rounding up gays and lesbians and starving them to death.
Just yesterday, an audio file of a Kansas pastor saying the government should kill gays made the rounds.
Now, we are confronted with perhaps the most egregious homophobic offense in recent weeks — a youngster at Apostolic Truth Tabernacle in Greensburg, Indiana,belted out “Ain’t No Homos Gonna Make It To Heaven,” and the congregation rewarded him with a standing ovation.
This is… kinda terrifying to watch.
SWEET LORD. PARENTING, YOURE DOING IT RIGHT.
