Who is this woman? What was her occupation? What was she famous for? If you can fathom that the woman on the left is the same as the one on the right, what in God’s name did the wages of time inflict on this poor soul. She looks like she swallowed a whale.

Anyway, who is this woman and why is she famous?
Answered on Quora.
The best definition of an androgynous man is a man who has strong masculine and strong feminine characteristics going at the same time. Remember glam rock back in the 1970’s? Many of those male rockers were quite androgynous, and most of them were very heterosexual or at least leaned straight.
Another definition of androgynous means a man who looks and acts so much like a woman that you can’t tell if he is a man or a woman. Or the opposite in a woman. Almost all if not all such cases of extremely feminine men who appear to be women and extremely masculine women who seem to be men that I have studied are in fact homosexuals. In fact they are very gay.
Now if you include men like Prince as androgynes, there are indeed some straight men like this, as Prince was completely heterosexual.
Honestly we straight men had a lot more leeway in terms of true androgyny back in the 70’s. A straight man could wear scarves, velvet pants, silk shirts, short kimonos, smoking jackets, tight jeans, dancing shoes, and four inch blue platform heels without most people suggesting you were gay. People would just say you were “styling it.” You can act a lot softer, gentler, or more androgynous. You could have a strong feminine side, especially if you matched it with a strong masculine side.
Back then, people were assumed straight until proven otherwise, and there were not many out gays anyways. Accusing a man of being gay was a very serious matter, as this was seen as a horrible insult if he was straight. So most men were simply assumed, correctly, to be straight until proven otherwise. If you wanted to accuse a man of being gay, you had better have had some pretty damn good evidence to back it up.
I am actually nostalgic for those days. I had so much more freedom back then in terms of both clothing and behavior.
Now that gays are so out, we straight men can no longer wear those wild clothes I talked about above nor can we act the way I did back then. If I tried to wear any of that stuff now that I wore back then, people would automatically assume that I was gay or bi. If I told them I was straight, no one would believe me, and they would all accuse me of lying. Compared to back then, acceptable behavior and garb for straight men has become dramatically restricted.
It’s not been a positive change. We have gone backwards in a huge way.

Brando himself stated that he had had sex with both men and women and he didn’t feel bad about it at all. He seemed to lean straight though.
What Percentage of Transsexuals are Heterosexual before Transitioning and Remain Oriented to the Same Sex after Transition?
Answered on Quora.
Early onset transsexualism is usually an extreme form of homosexuality. 90% of early onset male to female transsexuals were gay men before they transitioned, so after transition, they remain attracted to men. Nearly all early onset female to male transsexuals were lesbians before they transitioned. After they transition, they remain attracted to women. Heterosexual early-onset transsexuals are rare, especially among women. In the older literature, early onset male to female transsexuals are referred to as Classic Transsexuals.
Late onset male to female transsexualism is probably related to autogynophilia and is almost certainly not organic. In the older literature, these people are called Fetishistic Transsexuals.
Autogynophilia is a paraphilia that is developmental as all paraphilias are. These men are turned on sexually by the image of themselves as a woman. Bruce/Caitlin Jenner is almost certainly this type of transsexual.
However, these men differ from traditional fetishistic transvestites in many ways, as they have cross-dressed more and for longer, and they are much more likely to see themselves as women.
Of late onset male to female or Fetishistic transsexuals, 1/3 are gay, 1/3 are bisexual, and 1/3 are straight. Oddly enough, many late onset male to female transsexuals have been extremely masculine in their lives before they became transsexual.
Answered on Quora (Stanley is the lead singer of KISS):
Thank you! That’s an excellent question. I have studied this question for an article I wrote about gay and bisexual rock stars.
Paul Stanley is one of the most legendary womanizers in all of rock and roll. He has probably had sex with hundreds of women. No gay man does that, nor has any gay man ever done that. Any man who does that cannot possibly be gay, and he almost always leans straight. These men are frankly the most heterosexual men of us all.
Some people have said that he is effeminate, and he does have some effeminate behaviors. At least one groupie said his effeminacy creeped her out – she didn’t like it. I do not think Stanley is strongly effeminate, but he has a few behaviors like that, in particular the way he holds his hands when he sits.
Despite his reputation as a womanizer, he has long been rumored to be bisexual. Groupie boards report that he is bisexual. Ace Frehley and Ace’s wife have both stated that Stanley is bisexual. I think he is much less interested in men than he is in women. We can see this by his legendary womanizing. That is an indication of how he leans sexually. Paul Stanley is a predominantly straight man with some minor bisexual leanings in my opinion.
He is now married with children for some years.
Cat Stevens, Morning Has Broken, 1976.
That sure is great music, isn’t it? I used to love Cat Stevens, and I think I still do. I don’t see why you can’t love Cat Stevens and the Sex Pistols both at the same time. After all, there’s really only two kinds of music, good music and bad music. All the genres are pretty useless, especially when people get chauvinistic about them.
He later converted to Islam and became Yusuf Islam, moved to the UK, and idiotically got on the US government’s No Fly List. Is Cat Stevens a terrorist? Come on! He made some lousy statements about Salman Rushdie, suggesting that the ayatollahs were right to put out a death threat on him. Shows what happens when you convert to Islam. A decent man can convert to Islam and become a monster because even a normative interpretation of Islam (apostates must be killed) is brutal, extreme, and homicidal. I’m not saying that this is always what happens, but Islam is hardly a religion. The rule about dealing with apostates shows right there that this is no peaceful religion. No sir!
Somewhere over the Rainbow, from The Wizard of Oz (1939).
Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high,
There’s a land that I heard of
Once in a lullaby.
Somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true.
Someday I’ll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That’s where you’ll find me.
Somewhere over the rainbow
Birds fly over the rainbow.
Why then, oh why can’t I?
If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can’t I?
How can you not love it? It’s only one of the greatest songs ever written in one of the greatest movies ever made? What more do you want?
Judy Garland looks like a very young girl in this movie, but she was a quite mature 16 year old girl when she shot the film. She sure is adorable, an immaculate example of that finest of all of God’s creations, the teenage girl.
This is a happy song, but it’s also sad. Sort of like life.
Sad because Judy later claimed to have been forced into various sex acts with Hollywood higher-ups during the shoot. So this was going on when she was recording this very song. When you think about that and listen to the song, it makes its dreams of escape all the more painful.
Sad because Judy Garland led such a sad life of heavy drinking and drug use, suicide attempts, mental hospitalizations, bitter divorces, and she finally stared into the abyss, took a handful of Seconals, and flung herself into the darkness, dead of a drug overdose.
Sad because only two months after this great ballad of wistful hope was recorded and this fairy tale classic movie was released, Britain declared war on Germany, and World War 2 began. Our longed-for dreams came crashing down in cataclysmic ruin. But isn’t that the way it always is?
Sad because everyone in this movie is now dead. But if you can suspend belief, if you dare, for just one bare moment, and dream your once upon a time, you just know that that entire cast is over the rainbow, watching all of us.
A little known fact:
This song was recorded twice for the movie – once in the first five minutes after Auntie Em tells her to find herself a place where she won’t get into trouble. She wanders off, talking to Toto a bit, then breaks out into song. This is the well known version.
However, originally there was another version in the movie. When Dorothy was imprisoned by the Wicked Witch of the West in her prison, with the hourglass of her life running out and her death drawing near. She then sings this song again, this time amidst real tears. She cries all the way through the songm unable to finish. Then she cries out, “I’m scared, Auntie Em!” She sees Auntie Em in the hourglass, only to be replaced by the Wicked Witch taunting her cruelly.
There is a third version of the song, an instrumental only version that plays over the ending credits.
The film is lost to time, history, the dust bin, and the cutting room floor, but the audio survived and is included in a 2 DVD version of the movie released in 1995. Might be nice to hear that.
Garland made this her signature song, performing again through her career, singing it on stage for the next 30 years.
Rip Judy Garland.
Female – Male Heterosexual HIV Transmission: Some Myths about Men Who Supposedly Got HIV from Heterosexual Sex
Hood: Anal sex with an infected woman will result in AIDS even quicker because an infected woman’s anus is smaller than a man’s and tears easier. Male porn stars-Holmes, Darren James, Marc Wallace – all got AIDS this way.
What you mean to say is that it is difficult to get AIDS from a woman’s vagina and this may be true unless she has menstrual blood and then no it is not.
Holmes did not get HIV from anal sex with a woman. He either got it from getting fucked by guys or even better yet sharing needles, as he was a big dope shooter.
Marc Wallace was a dope shooter, and that’s how he got HIV.
Darren James case is controversial, but at any rate, he fucked a guy. The human he fucked was a pre-op tranny. By definition that is a man who thinks he is a woman and is taking some hormones to that effect.
Holmes – fucking men or needles.
Wallace – needles.
Darren James – fucking men.
The only well-documented case I know of of a man getting HIV from a woman in the US is a man who got it from his wife. But he had sex with many times over 10 years, and there were over 100 instances of penile and vaginal bleeding.
There are some cases of men getting HIV in Thailand from prostitutes. It is associated with lack of lubrication on the women’s part, significant bleeding, and an HIV subtype that appears to transmit easier female -> male. The vaginal titers are quite a bit higher with that HIV subtype, which is very rare in the US. With the HIV subtype in the US, I have looked at the vaginal titers, and personally I have a hard time seeing how they are high enough to transmit the disease. Women with HIV in the US have very low HIV levels in their vaginal titers.
It’s not a matter or merely getting exposed to HIV. You can get exposed to HIV lots of times and nothing happens as long you are exposed to saliva, vaginal fluid or something with very low titers.
It’s possibly that repeated vaginal sex with a woman might give you HIV. This is one theory – that the titers are too low to transmit, but if you get dosed over and over, you eventually get enough of a dose to transmit. The virus needs a fairly high viral load to transmit. Blood has a very high viral load, but it has to right into the bloodstream. Semen has a high viral load too because it is full of blood. But even then, it often has to go right into the bloodstream.
Hell, you can eat or drink HIV. I know that sounds insane, but gay men do it all the time. Gay men perform oral sex on HIV-positive gay men all the time. They swallow the semen (by definition they are eating or drinking HIV right there). There have been a few transmissions this way, but in general, it is quite safe.
First of all, if you consume HIV, your saliva will kill it. And if your saliva doesn’t kill it, then your stomach acid will. That stuff kills everything. People don’t understand the meaning of blood-borne illness. The damn stuff has to get right into your bloodstream.
I did read a report on three cases of gay men who had serious allergies to where they had abrasions and minor bleeding in their throats from all the irritation. They swallowed semen, and they did indeed get HIV. It went in through the abrasions in their throats.
HIV is a difficult disease to catch!
