The world wide web is a way for gays to 'overcome social restrictions' and unwind in safe anonymity, or to build up a circle of acquaintances, he says.

  1. Re gay Syrians: the Arabic word for gay is "mithli" which is a homophone for "like me." So the name of the organization "I am like you" is a clever play on words, which not only introduces the neutral term for gays but stresses the notion of equality

    Good for the brave souls in Syria!

  2. This is a nitpick, but to get the spelling of my hometown straight (or gay?), it's Cincinnati, not Cincinatti. Double the second N, not the T.

  8. hey andy - i'm surprised you're not on top (ahem) of the KRXQ story in Sacramento. A radio host there did a morning show talking about how he would beat the living crap out of his son if he happened to be a "transgendered" kid, and then went on and on about how transgendered and/or gay kids needed to be beaten or "taught" a lesson.

    check out michael rowe's piece on the Huffington Post --

    the radio station is losing sponsors - major ones like B of A, Snapple, Wells Fargo etc. - faster than Lance Bass sheds boyfriends.
