Shaun Woolford: Beaten to Death By Ex-Beau

Fifth Avenue hairdresser Shaun Woolford died from injuries caused by blunt force trauma to the head in Brooklyn, NY.

We often hear of not so pretty stories involving an ex-beau, husband, lover, baby-daddy etc, that flies off the handle and, in a fit of rage attacks.  The result is seldom pretty and always leaves us wondering WTF!  This is one of those times.

Devineil Brown is accused of having visited his ex-beau Shaun Woolford of five years and delivering blunt-force trauma to his head resulting in death.

No word yet as to what initiated the violent outburst.

It gets prettier.  Dumbass Brown then allegedly knocked on a neighbors’ door and delivered a revised version of the alleged incident to a 911 operator to the tune of having arrived and finding Woolford laying on the floor.

Reports have Brown cracking under questioning a short time later.

And we are still left wondering WTF?

Sure, we have a friend down South who once hit an ex-military-lover over the head with a frying pan and knocked his ass out after the dude up and got all hands-on beat down with him.  But that dude lived and they have never been in touch again.

That’s the proper protocol.

But why is it that some folks can’t part and go on about their business…?  Why is it that folks – gay or straight – can’t reconcile themselves with the fact that relationships end.  Stories don’t always have a happy ending.  Disney is a myth!

And generally speaking, having further interactions with someone you once shared a lil-something-sumthing with, regardless of the length of time, doesn’t require further communications once it is done.

Move the fuck on.  Erase their number.  Redirect your focus elsewhere.  There are other pieces of ass to be experienced.  Ain’t no piece that good!

Well, in the case of Brown, he will get lots more to choose from when he is sent away.  Assuredly that ass will get passed around the Block, with little opportunity to protest.

On a side note, Woolford’s ink bares an awful-likeness to those sported by rapper Eve…  Hmmmm.

Ricky Martin Denounces Anti-Gay Attack

Ricky Martin Addresses Recent Anti-Gay Murder in Puerto Rico

I never thought I would see the day when I would be giving kudos to Ricky Martin for officially addressing a gay topic.  Sure he is a hot piece of ass (papi looks good in Speedo!) and has had some great sounds (I still bust a move to “She Bangs” & “La Vida Loca,”) during a span of a long ass career, but the whole ‘is he or isn’t he’ rubs me the wrong way. 

This is not because I expect Martin to take a stance and become a gay advocate from a makeshift Miami pulpit but because he hasn’t had the cojones to look into the camera and say “who I fuck is none of your goddamn business unless you want to suck my uncut cock!” 

Of course he doesn’t have to use my words – exactly…  but along those lines… 

 And then he goes and releases a statement to the Puerto Rican newspaper El Nuevo Dia addressing the recent heinous murder of Jorge Steven Lopez Mercado.  In case you haven’t heard of the story, google it!  

 ”The murders of James Byrd, Matthew Shepard, Jorge Steven Lopez, Marcelo Lucero, Luis Ramirez and countless others who were victims of violent ‘hate crimes’ should be completely unacceptable to every human being; because we’re all human beings. It’s up to us to change the paradigm,” Martin writes. 

He gets deeper with “I hear the word ‘tolerance’ thrown around in the media when it comes to cases like the ones I mentioned above. One of the meanings of tolerance is ‘the capacity to endure pain or hardship.’ Another is ‘the act of allowing something.’ To me, those don’t seem to encompass acceptance, by any definition. So how about this? Instead of saying ‘we need to tolerate diversity’ why not say, ‘we need to accept diversity.’”

I especially love the tolerance vs acceptance portion!  That breaks it down in simple terms.  Fucking-A. 

I don’t know whether this is a result of his being a new daddy to twins – they say having kids makes you see things differently, but whatever the cause it is some Act Up sentiment right there!  Bravo.
