RI Gov. Carcieri Nixes Gay Funeral Bill … No NY Marriage … Why Malachi Marx Went Gay For Pay

ON OUR GAYDAR — News, notes, clicks, and quips from around the web.

Gov. Don Carcieri

→ Rhode Island’s Gov. Don Carcieri vetoes a bill that would’ve added domestic partners to those able to make funeral arrangements for their partners. Why? Because “this bill represents a distributing trend over the past few years of the incremental erosion of the principles surrounding traditional marriage, which is not the preferred way to approach this issue. If the General Assembly believes it would like to address the issue of domestic partnerships, it should place the issue on the ballot and let the people of the state of Rhode Island decide.”

→ Even the American Medical Association wants to kill DADT, because having it in place encourages medical disparities.

A “decent debut” for Wanda Sykes new Saturday show?

→ Connecticut Gov. Jodi Rell, who signed a civil union bill into law, won’t run for re-election next year.


→ “Indefinitely.” That’s how long New York’s state senators put off a vote on gay marriage after opting not to make a call today.

→ Federal court rules that South Carolina’s state-mandated license plate “I Believe” does, in fact, violate the separation of church and state.

→ The Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber and Americans for Truth About Homosexuality’s Peter LaBarbera called the FBI over the blog Joe My God.

→ Northern Alabama teen Cynthia Stewart told she cannot bring her girlfriend to the prom.

Mint Male is a brand new gay magazine-on-the-web thing, which is hysterical, because while everyone knows in this climate it’s stupid to launch a new gay magazine, it’s even more stupid to launch a web-based one that’s impossible to flip through.


→ Porn star and prostitute Malachi Marx (not his real name, obvs) is retiring from selling his body — and wants us to believe the only reason he got into gay-for-pay porn was so he would have the material to write a book on it. Which he did. It’s called Gay 4 Pay: The Revealing Life of a Gay Porn Star and Escort. There are stories about bananas and things. [Interview here, site NSFW]

→ Remember when Maine put a woman’s right to vote up for, uh, a vote? Back in 1917, a ballot measure stood between women’s suffrage and citizen-approved discrimination. Voters opted for the latter.

→ Of course Andrea Peyser is defending the NYC cabbie who tossed out two gay passengers.

→ Guess who’s thrilled taxpayers won’t have to pay for abortions? Religious conservatives, that’s who!

→ How gay marriage will help heterosexuals: It’ll keep them from accidentally marrying a homo.

Rent and The Laramie Project will go on at this Las Vegas area high school, after all.

→ Is Hell’s Kitchen or the West Village the reigning NYC gayborhood?

    Rhode Island: Small state, smaller minds.

    New York: Indefinitely = Never.

    South Carolina: They can have a government-issued license plate that says “I believe” when I can have one that says “You’re an idiot.”

    Alabama: So instead of letting a lesbian bring another girl to prom, they cancel it altogether? Damn, as far as bigotry goes, those guys are committed.

    The Stupak amendment: Proof that the one thing gays and women really, truly have in common is that they’re the two groups most consistently thrown under the bus by the Democratic party when they want to appease the bigots on the right.

  • Jon B

    Oh man! Malachi Marx was absurdly hot. Although he only had one ball, which was kinda weird. Still really really hot though.

  • Jigae

    I found it almost completely unbelievable that Malachi is straight. Bi maybe. Straight, no.

  • AlwaysGay

    Malachi Marx is gay. I’ve never seen his porn but I can tell from the written interview that he is gay. His language sensiblities and point of view are that of a gay man. He made the mistake to produce a child at such a young age and with a woman. It’s a difficult situation he is in given he is gay too.

    Governor Paterson needs to end his election campaign. He has no power. If he gets elected he will still have no power and gay people will not get their marriage rights. It’s over for Paterson. Gay people in New York need to persuade Andrew Cuomo to get on board with marriage equality.

    The vast majority of heterosexuals don’t want gay people to be on a level playing field with them so canceling a dance because a single lesbian couple wanted to attend is expected. It’s like when people say instead of letting gay couples marry legally that we should abolish marriage and let churches decide.

    Porn star and prostitute Malachi Marx

    Oh boy! Another het making money off the queers. Between lousy gay-for-pay porn, gay marriage foes and shitty films, the hets are raking in millions trading on us.

  • jason

    This is why I think porn is horrible. If you buy porn, you’re enabling this.

  • Attmay

    I don’t buy porn.

    But I’m not deprived of it in any way.

  • Victor

    @4, before I support anyone as a gay NY, I want them to say they’ll sign or vote for marriage equality. So, for now, Gov. Paterson is the only choice.

  • YellowRanger

    @ #5

    My erections don’t see sexuality.

    If a porn star is hot, I’ll fap to them. I don’t care who they’re banging in their spare time.

  • Keith

    I hate these guys who do a handful of scenes for one company and they think they’re a porn star. It used tlo be that you had to earn the title (usually by working for nearly every studio, among other ways), but these days these young guys do one scene and they think they’re a “porn star.”

    And don’t get me started on the “gay for pay” guys…sorry Malachi, but if you can suck cock and take a dick up your ass, you’re not straight. Bisexual, sure, but not straight. And don’t use having a kid as evidence of your “straightness” because I know guys who had kids in their teens and they’re gayer than Christmas. Trust me when I say that if these “gay for pay” guys end up marrying women, they’ll be the type of husbands that have secret gay lives on the side.

  • Mr. Enemabag Jones

    In the article, Mr. Marx states that some john paid him 32k to go to Greece on vacation. I wonder if he reported that money, or any of the money he supposedly made whoring himself, to the IRS?

  • INCognito

    What’s hilarious about Peyser’s piece is how she calls it bigotry when people immediately go to the cabbie’s Islam to explain his behavior… The reason it’s hilarious is because for years Peyser herself has been harping about a certain religion and how its followers don’t like their women to drive cars or travel without a close male relative. Maybe Ms. Peyser is bigoted herself when she grouped these non-PC behaviors by the Muslim religion of the perps. I mean how does she know these women don’t start undressing and touching themselves inappropriately in public when without a male?

  • alan brickman

    total d bag!!

  • Jon B

    Can someone address the one ball thing? Why does he only have one ball? Am I the only one who has noticed it?

    As to that hateful witch Peyser……..what a vile cunt. I sent her an Email at [email protected] and disagreed with her rantings. The filthy subhuman scumbag cab driver claimed “I don’t judge Gays, I will wait for God to do so”. Like a muslim scum has never judged the Gays! Tell that to the 3 Gay teens awaiting death by hangin in Iran right now……….

    But to really rattle her cage I told her how I googled her and was looking at her pictures online. I said she is the most disturbing looking woman I have ever seen, advised her plastic surgeon must have got his degree via mail order, and that she made Jocelyn Wildensteins (aka catwoman/bride of Wildenstein) look flawless. I encourage others to please follow my lead……………….

  • Attmay

    @12 INCognito:

    Maybe when she realized they also hate gays like she does, she thought “Maybe they’re not so bad.”

  • Daniel

    They always want to vote on other people’s human rights but never their own. It is fascism at its worst. Do tens of millions of gay people get to vote on the rights of the top human rights violators if it is supposedly majority rules? The rightwing fascists in America take all their plays from the Nazis handbook from over 60 years ago; they have yet to do anything novel.

  • 1EqualityUSA

    When Carciari is making plans for his family member’s funeral and feeling the complete devastation it can bring, I hope he thinks about all of the unnecessary pain he has caused others. I want his funeral experience to be layered with well-deserved guilt for the pain he has caused. This man is so grossly out of touch.

  • PootieTang

    Whatever became of Malachi Marx? Is his book already at the top of The New York Times bestseller list? No? OH, what a surprise…

  • romeo

    It’s been a few years since I lived in NY, but the village is where I mostly went then and now when I visit. Clicked the link and found out that Rufus and I were neighbors — I lived on the same block in Chelsea. LOL He’s sweet. Don’t know if he was living there then, though.

    but I in finding this topic to be actually one thing
    that I believe I’d by no means understand. It seems too complicated and very extensive for me. I’m having a look ahead on your subsequent post, I’ll attempt to get the cling of it!
