Russia Plans to Block Same-Sex Partnership Benefits to UN Employees

Last year, the United Nations’ Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, issued a ruling that would have offered marital benefits for the first time in the organization’s history to gay and lesbian employees in domestic partnerships. Unfortunately, Russia has said no. At a budget meeting, diplomat Sergey Khalizov from Russia said that the policy must be reversed. According to Foreign Policy, Russia said that “[the] U.N. chief’s action violated a U.N. General Assembly resolution that left it to U.N. employees’ governments to determine whether they are eligible for spousal benefits. Moscow has been weighing whether to force a vote in the budget committee, known as the Fifth Committee, to halt funding such benefits, a vote that it likely could win. Unlike the U.N. Security Council, the United States and other big powers don’t have the power to veto votes in the Fifth Committee. While its decisions are generally made by consensus, states can call for a vote.”

Egyptian police have arrested seven young men in the country’s newest crackdown on LGBT people. Inciting “debauchery,” a pro-Egyptian regime television outlet, Youm7, aired the arrest of the seven by declaring it the arrest of “perverts” and “transsexuals.”  The network described the entrapment used by the police to arrest the men. The police allegedly used fake Web sites and arranged to meet the seven at a venue in Giza to then go to an apartment. Instead, they were arrested. [StarObserver]

Step aside New York City Firemen, rowers, and this season’s Iowa-farmer Bachelor, we’ve found new poster boys to make us swoon. These real-life Irish farmers show us that farmer tans are sexy as hell (especially when holding a baby goat, are we right?). You can purchase this year’s by clicking here—you still have ten months of hot fir. Sleep better knowing that money goes to Bothar, an organization that sends livestock to the developing world since 1991.

Alabama Court Halts Gay Marriage in the Southern State

ruling by the Alabama state Supreme Court ordered a halt to same-sex marriages in the state. In the ruling, the Court granted an emergency petition by two anti-LGBT groups, the Alabama Policy Institute and Alabama Citizens Action Program, who sought to stop probate judges from issuing marriage licenses across the state. The order, which has no foundation in constitutional law, flies in the face a prevailing federal ruling by Judge Callie V.S.Granade issued weeks ago. “In the bizarre, rambling 150 page opinion, the majority on the state Supreme Court steps far beyond the complaint before it, arguing, ‘Throughout the entirety of its history, Alabama has chosen the traditional definition of marriage. […] Alabama probate judges have a ministerial duty not to issue any marriage license contrary to this law,'” according to the HRC.

The government of Slovenia has passed legislation that will make it the country the 21st in the world to grant full marriage rights to all of its citizens. Slovenia’s national parliament approved the bill by a vote of 51 to 28. The bill will be sent to President Borut Pahor to sign into law. “We commend the elected representatives of Slovenia for passing such historic legislation ensuring the nation’s LGBT citizens receive the rights they deserve, and we congratulate the LGBT activists and advocates who helped make this momentous day possible,” said Ty Cobb, Director of HRC Global.

Gay Travel: What’s New in Tokyo, Japan

Japan’s vibrant, spirited, and stimulating capital, Tokyo, is famously a city that never sleeps, but tonight it’s taking a gentle nap. My friend Mike and I wander the streets of Ginza, a renowned shopping district normally flooded with pedestrians on a Saturday night, though there’s nary a soul in sight. A handful of locals hugging each other tightly rush to a cab as the heavens above unleash a spatter of raindrops. It happens that we arrived on the eve of Super Typhoon Phanfone, which was hot on the heels of our flight from Los Angeles. A Super Typhoon is like a tropical storm on steroids, and, already, we knew it would wreak havoc on our vacation.

But, as it turns out, Tokyo is a resilient city. After a huge blow from the recession that lasted six strong years, and a fatal tsunami up north that also affected Tokyo’s economy, the city known for its sparkle and charm finally said enough. It took reign of its economy, opened its first hotel since the recession, and banged out myriad new attractions. The typhoon, interestingly, lasted only one full day; chased away by the famous rising sun that now gleamed over the city. Tokyo had unabashedly emerged from its power nap, fully recharged, and whole-heartedly committed to its agenda of returning to its iconic splendor.

In measuring 15,000 penises worldwide, a new scientific study has revealed that the average size of a penis when erect is 5.16 inches in length and 4.6 inches around. Show-er not a grower? The average man’s flaccid penis measured up to be 3.6 inches and 3.7 around. The head British researcher said that the study should help those with “small penis anxiety.” They should help “reassure the large majority of men that the size of their penis is in the normal range.”

Men from the ages of 17-91 from Europe, Asia, Africa, and the US all took part in the trial. The study also found that there is no correlation between a man’s foot size and the size of his piece. [Guardian]
