Newsweek Calls Barack Obama 'The First Gay President'

Filed under: Gay Gay GayBarack ObamaLGBT

Barack Obama newsweek

We knew our gaydar was picking up some serious signals from this guy! LOL! We kid, we kid!

Following Barack Obama's historical announcement to throw his support behind same-sex marriage, Newsweek threw his face on the cover to make a new announcement: Obama is "the first gay president."

No, he's not literally gay, but it's definitely an attention-grabbing headline! Columnist Andrew Sullivan argues that Obama's coming-of-age experience as a biracial individual is easily comparible to the struggles that members of the LGBT community face en route to discovering their personal identity.

Baby got back AND higher self-esteem!

A nationwide study has found that heavier set African American women are actually happier with their bodies than most average-sized or thin Caucasian women.

The survey by the Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation interviewed 800 women across the country to discover 66% of overweight or obese black women had high self-esteem, while only 41% of skinny white women could say the same!

Although they love their curves, 90% African American women revealed in the survey that they thought living a healthy lifestyle is more important that religion, career and marriage. 28% were also more likely to insist that being physically attractive is "very important", while only 11% of white women could say the same.

The average Caucasian participant was more likely to agree that being physically attractive is only "somewhat important."

Do U think these findings are actually representative of all black and white women across the United States?
