Gay Boy Gets To Go To Prom With Hella Cute Straight Boy Of His Dreams!

Featured

It is the weekend, which means we need a Nice Time, and it's a GOOD ONE. Remember prom? That thing that happened in high school where the mean kids spilled pig blood all over you, so you unleashed your powers and murdered everybody? Ha ha, no, you did not do that, you are not Carrie! You stayed home from your prom, duh. Well, here is a gay kid who is DEFINITELY going, because his best friend, a straight guy, asked him in the most adorable way.

It all started when young gay whippersnapper Anthony Martinez, from the Desert Oasis High School in Las Vegas, tweeted that hey, he's tired of just PLANNING the prom, he would like to please go, and with a dude:

So Anthony's best friend, Jacob Lescenski, caught wind of the tweet and thought, hey, Anthony is my best bro friend, I am going to give him the man date he's always wanted! So he got together with his friends and had that banner up there made, which, if you are hard of eyesight, says, "you're hella gay, I'm hella str8, but you're like my brother, so be my d8?" How hella sweet that is!

Towleroad explains how it all went down:

Lescenski "Promposed" to Martinez on Wednesday at school shortly after lunch where Martinez was in the lunch room selling prom tickets. After selling tickets, Martinez ascended a pair of stairs on his way to class where he was met by Lescenski and the giant poster asking him to prom. Martinez happily accepted Lescenski's cheeky "Promposal."

And then they hugged, because they were both so very excited!

These two seem to just adore each other, and it's very, very super cool to see that, in Obama's gay America, it's officially no big for a straight dude and a gay dude to be besties, in high school. Of course, we knew that already because we are gay and one of our bestest BFFs is a Straight Man.

Martinez says his bud Jacob is a pretty good example of how a real man is supposed to act, "given that he has the guts to fulfill my gay student council dream of always helping out planning dances, and never getting asked. I couldn't ask for a better person in my life." We agree with that!

According to Martinez's Tumblr, (which Wonkette is now going to follow, on OUR TUMBLR!) they're going to eat and dance and all the other normal prom things, and then go hang out with their friends. Also, in response to a Tumblr-er who remarked that his date is "hella hot," Martinez replied, "he knows." Ha ha ha, KIDS, am I right? All thinking they're hot shit or something.

So, the prom is May 2, they are going to have so much fun, and then they will live happily ever after, in a totally platonic way, and now there is officially a big gay smile on our surly Wonkette face.

I'd mentioned this week that there's definitely probably a tape out there of Donald Trump referring to a black person as a "nigger," because Trump is a racist and that's sort of what they do. Sarah Huckabee Sanders won't even affirmatively deny such a tape exists, and she's from the "two plus two equals five" school of communications management. I also speculated that once the tape was released, Republican supporters of the president would flock to defend his vile words: "Hey, if you rearrange the letters in "nigger," you get "ginger" and who doesn't like redheads and the occasional Dark 'n' Stormy?"

The shameful display has already started and the supposed recording isn't even available for pre-order on iTunes. George State Senator Michael Williams stated in appearance on CNN's "New Day Saturday" that if Trump -- who's the president, by the way -- did say "nigger," it would certainly concern him as an "individual" but "not necessarily as a person that is running our country." So, uh, what the hell is that? This has been a standard argument from Republicans ever since Trump crawled his way out of the sewers of birtherism and onto a major political stage: "We think Trump is a terrible human being -- seriously, we have to shower immediately after meeting with him -- but we still think he's a suitable steward of the most powerful nation on the planet."

Normally, you'd think this would work the other way. You know, your brother-in-law is a nice enough guy. Your sister certainly could've done worse. You don't mind the slightly rambling sports-ball discussions with him at family gatherings. He's good for looking after the kids (as long as your sister is present or reachable by cell), but you'd never invest your hard-earned money into whatever half-assed business venture he's trying to get off the ground nor would you back his run for any serious political office.

I've long had issues with the "brilliant asshole" archetype in TV and movies. It's almost always a white male (because women and minorities must be perfect) whose emotional immaturity and overall jerkass behavior we're told to overlook because they're so goshdarned awesome. Do you want some PC "cuck" or do you want Dr. House to figure out that the MS symptoms you're suffering are really just because you ate a stale doughnut? Sherlock Holmes doesn't have time for your feelings or social niceties -- not while he's solving mysteries and being dreamy.

Trump, however, isn't "brilliant." He's just a guy who says "nigger." They're hardly a scarcity in the market. You don't even have to venture out to a klan rally to find one. You can order online -- same day social media delivery.

Williams argues that Trump didn't use the word "nigger" when he was in the "office of the president." It was just some youthful indiscretion when he was almost 60. I don't even know where he's going with this. Does he think Trump has changed? He routinely insults and belittles black people. He also calls black NFL players who peacefully protest "sons of bitches." Was that his way of weaning off calling us "niggers"? Has he been wearing a "nigger" patch on his arm to control his cravings for the racial epithet?

"He used the word in his personal life," Williams said. (It was actually in a workplace context -- SER) "Now if he were president and were to go on TV and use the n-word, I'd have a major problem with that."

It's heartening repulsive to see that Williams draws the line at Trump holding an official "nigger" press conference. I think once we reach that point, Trump will probably also reveal that his buddies on the Supreme Court discovered a typo in the Thirteenth Amendment and black folks' work-life balance will start to really suffer.

"I will always say using the n-word is wrong, and it's bad, and should never be accepted in our society. But just because (Trump) might have done it years ago, not as our president, doesn't mean we need to continue to berate him because he used it," GOP state Sen. Michael Williams, who is white, told CNN's Victor Blackwell on "New Day Saturday."

Blackwell, who is black, had to sit there and listen to this crap from a white elected official who is just 45 years old. You know, the word "nigger" doesn't even appear in the Dred Scott decision, for example, but that's not necessary for reasonable people to understand that it was racist as hell. We all know Trump is racist, but now Republicans can't even repudiate the worst demonstrations of his racial animus. The first black president hasn't even been out of office for two full years and already "nigger" is being redefined. What would once end a campaign in its tracks when Blackwell and I were growing up is now just an "oops, my bad."

Conservatives want to be oppressed. Or, rather, for everyone to think they are being oppressed and to then give them what they see as the impunity and moral upper hand that comes along with being an oppressed group of people. They want it very, very badly and think it is very unfair that all the people they have oppressed have this privilege and they do not. This morning, Trump took to Twitter to vow to protect them from the worst kind of oppression of all -- imaginary social media censorship!
