Activist Actors Hurt Causes with Actions: Gay Rights, HIV & Jennifer Aniston Caught in Activists’ Wake

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie recently announced they would not get married until everyone in the United States who wants to get married can get married. What Pitt and Jolie are referring to, of course, is the inability of same-sex couples to marry. As a gay guy, I appreciate Brad’s and Angelina’s intentions. However, I think they do more damage to the gay marriage debate by refraining from marrying. Pitt and Jolie seem to muss up everything they touch with their constant self-promotion – not the least of which is the damage they have done to Jennifer Aniston by putting forward this Father and Mother Teresa image designed to distance Pitt from the fact that he cheated on wife Aniston with mistress Jolie. Then there’s HIV and AIDs. Working on the cause of HIV in Africa is noble, no doubt of that at all, but problems at home should come first. As an American living with HIV in America, I believe firmly that the American responsibility lies on American soil first; and, in America, HIV continues to menace all people of all colors, religions, and orientations. Almost 50% of gay black men – that includes those of you on the D.L. – are believed to be HIV positive, whether they know it or not. As of a few years back, there were HIV positive patients in over 10 states in the U.S. who could not take the medications that have turned HIV into a largely manageable illness because their states have waiting lists for uninsured HIV patients. As surely as my fingers are pressing against my keyboard, these people will die if left untreated. Most HIV medicine combinations cost in excess of $1,200 a month. The HIV problem in the U.S. continues though every time I read an article about celebrities like Pitt and Jolie working on HIV awareness, it has to do with HIV in Africa. Every month, thanks to the so-called leading example of Pitt and Jolie, more celebrities focus attention on the issues of HIV, AIDs, poverty, and death in Africa. The problem is that there is an implication from the dearth of attention on HIV in America that the virus that causes AIDs is no longer a problem in the States when nothing could be further from the truth. More people have HIV and AIDs than ever before yet agencies are scrambling to spread the annually diminishing returns coming from the Federal and state governments. That’s why, to some degree, many states still have waiting lists for HIV drugs for uninsured patients. Senator Barrack Obama, the freshman, now sophomore, Senator from Illinois, returned to his African homeland last month and took an AIDs test to raise awareness of the issue. He should have taken an AIDs test at one of the HIV/AIDs agencies in Illinois to raise awareness of this issue where it’s supposed to count – for his Illinois constituency. Except 2008 is just around the corner and Obama’s posturing for a possible Presidential run then or in the near future. Even Lindsay Lohan is about to take up the cause of AIDs in Africa. Africa has suddenly become the place for Hollywood bad boys and girls to do penance. Thank you Brangelina. So now the pair essentially blames gays for why they aren’t married yet. Even if I believed you really lost sleep at night over the fact that I can’t marry another guy, Brangie, how is showing the world that a couple with children can get along just fine without getting married any help to the cause that gays want complete marriage rights (and not some unreasonable facsimile thereof called civil unions)? The longer you show that, to you, marriage is just an accessory that you can slip into your relationship at any time, the more you undermine the exigency of this situation for countless gay couples who year after year spend thousands of dollars on lawyer’s fees to create documents that create some of the same marriage rights and responsibilities as a simple “I do”. What about the children of gay couples who cannot legally refer to both of their parents as their parents without a costly adoption proceeding? The biggest favor anyone thinking of getting married can do – celebrity or not – to show support to the cause of gay marriage is to get married after thoughtful deliberation so that the marriage lasts. Both Pitt and Jolie have been married already which just makes the decision to refrain from marrying again seem even more arbitrary and contrived. Viewing the divorces in the aggregate with this decision to hold off on marrying each other does more to undermine the importance of marriage than the hordes of men and sheep waiting to take the slippery slope of gay marriage to what the Right thinks is the next logical place – bestiality.

10 Quick Ways to Lose Fat

It is fairly hard to look for someone who wishes to be fat, but you’ll find a big deal of people who simply wish to get a slim and toned body. You don’t need to worry however in losing extra pounds since there are proven ways that you can do in order to get rid of the stress of carrying bulges of fats everyday. Here are the top 10 quick ways to lose fat:
  1. Drink Ice Cold Water –
You might be asking what the connection of drinking cold water and losing weight? Actually, cold water can boost the ability of the body to burn fat faster. So stop spending your money on useless fat-weight gainers such as soda, coffee, juices, etc since the magical formula to go with is simply something that you can obtain almost everywhere-water!
  1. Eat Less –
For an obvious reason, you eat less in order to gain less calories. At first, try to consider the total amount of calories that you would enter in your body then try to start cutting few calories each week. If you lose weight, continue to eat the same amount but if you don’t then its better to cut another 500 calories. There are websites online that would help you assess the total calories consumed by your body. Don’t try to go for 2000 calories diet immediately, take your time.
  1. Burn Calories –
As part of not eating a lot, you also need to burn more calories hence its about time to start moving your butt off that slouching position that you would always maintain. Be active. By doing exercising, you will not simply lose fat but you will feel and look healthier too! There are wide range of sports that you can go for, pick one that you will enjoy.
  1. Kill your Cravings –
Indulge yourself to a lot of protein such as jerky, nuts, fish and chicken. Try to also consume raw vegetables and water can further kill your cravings so stock them up on your fridge. The time when you start eating raw vegetables, you will surely stop the ugly cravings for junk foods so better do it fast!
  1. Consume the same type of food Each Day –
You have to realize the fact that the more variety you put into your diet then the less you are going to stick to it. What you have to do is to consume the same food each day. Furthermore, doing this will teach your body to learn the fact that food serves as a fuel; and not really pleasure. Choose several healthy as well as balanced meals that you like. Make it a point to eat them every day. Once you get bored, its time to change the meal plan.
  1. Do Something Great Each Morning –
You can wake up and sweat for about 30 minutes each morning. Although some hate the idea of exercising but with continuity, it will turn out into a habit.
  1. Walk for 10 Minutes After Eating –
Doing this will allow you to increase the quantity of calories that you burn. If you eat 3 meals each day then you can take benefit of 30 minutes walking per day. (3 meals x 10 minutes walks)
  1. Eat Healthy –
Stop munching on that junk food! Furthermore, consider the fact that your body stores carb in a form of fat the moment when you eat too much of it so lower your carb and increase your fat intake so it will force your body to use fat as energy.
  1. Do Cardio Exercises –
Doing this will allow your body to lose fat even faster and it will allow you to eat less. However, its important to moderate intensity. Keep in mind that your goal is to lose fat and not to exhaust yourself to death. You must be able to breathe heavier when you rest but not to the point that you are gasping.
  1. Stay Motivated –
The problem with people is the fact that they lose the interest in losing weight hence they end up failing with their goal. That said, its highly important to seat goals and keep a tract record of everything. However, the weighing scale is not always your best friend, instead try to see how you are doing by doing a blood test so you can see the health improvement or by taking pictures of yourself every 4 weeks. You can also make use of the weigh scale at least once a week so you would know how you are doing.
