Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective!

What do you mean you don't know if you're gay or not?

Dear Readers:

In the realm of 'cause and effect,' I don't know if the following statement is a 'cause' or an 'effect.'  All I know is that it's happening with more frequency!  
More and more young men and women in the U.S. report having some attraction to members of the same sex, according to new national survey data.
In particular, more men now say they are "mostly attracted to the opposite sex," rather than "only" attracted to the opposite sex compared to previous years, according to the survey from researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The new trend may result from greater societal acceptance of same-sex relationships, said Ritch Savin-Williams, a professor of developmental psychology at Cornell University who researches sexual orientation and behavior.

Now that 2016 has arrived, the Benghazi committee is back to work this week, scheduled to interview former Central Intelligence Agency Director David Petraeus behind closed doors Wednesday and former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta Friday.
“The Select Committee’s investigation of the Benghazi attacks has been widely condemned as hyper-partisan and ineffective, and it stands in stark contrast to the bipartisan investigation and report issued by the 9/11 Commission,” said Cummings, in a statement. “Instead of following the bipartisan model set by the 9/11 Commission, which brought our entire nation together after we were attacked by terrorists, Republicans created a highly partisan Select Committee with an unlimited budget to attack their political opponents. Republicans continue to drag out this political charade closer to the 2016 presidential election, and the American taxpayers continue to pay the price.”

This whole mess with the Benghazi investigation and the furor over Hillary Clinton's E-mail debacle is pure Republican bullshit ....., along the same lines as the "Whitewater" investigation when her Husband was President!  (But please don't ask me about Monica Lewinsky!)

A couple of movies are being made about the trail of O.J. Simpson because the case is now being thought of as 'History!'

Gee, it seems like only yesterday that we were watching THIS on T.V.

Comedy star Ricky Gervais has donated a signed guitar to an Ontario primate sanctuary that houses the Ikea monkey. Story Book Farm Primate Sanctuary, northeast of Toronto, is now auctioning off the instrument on eBay.ca, with bids set to close on Jan. 14 at 9 p.m. ET.
Gervais, a well-known animal lover, used the guitar during filming of the upcoming comedy, "Special Correspondents," in Toronto.

The sanctuary in Sunderland, Ont., says proceeds from the sale will help build a new enclosure for Darwin, a.k.a. the Ikea monkey, and new roommates Cody and Pugsley.
Darwin has been living at the sanctuary for three years. A court placed him there after he was found wandering outside a Toronto Ikea store wearing a shearling coat in an incident that went viral.
