  2. I'm not a fan of Signorile, generally, but his condemnation of the so-called gay "leaders" (like Barney Frank, although I don't think he mentions him by name) is on target and pulls no punches. Anyone who doesn't at least try to get to this DC march against this administration better never complain, about anything, in the future.

  8. Woodroad, was "East LA gang member" really warranted? Yet again the racist flag flies high on Towleroad.

  9. Seriously, Sugarrhill. It's seems that every other day some bigoted nonsense mars this site. It's getting tiring.

  10. She is famous because people like Mr. Cooper keep talking about here, even if the comment is dismissive.

    I hate to even be making this comment because even the comment brings attention to them but please, everyone, ignore the two useless fame whores that are Hedi and Spencer and they will go back and die under the rock that they came for, they need attention, even negative attention to live.

    Btw, I just left a very small gathering for Harry Reid where he told me he would work to get DADT abolished.
