RoadMinnesota Congressman Tim Walz called "f*cking faggot" on conference call: "The Mankato Democrat wasn't on the line to hear the anti-gay slur; in fact, he ran about five minutes late to his own availability, following a trip to Afghanistan. Before Walz came on the line, someone said, "Come on Walz, you f---ing faggot," according to his staff and two reporters who were on the call.

  1. As far as the sex in the Seattle Park, I say lock them all up!! And if the HIV + freak wasn't using protection and didn't inform his hook-ups, then jail him for attempted murder. It's a shame these old & desparate trolls think it's their right to get off wherever they want. You want to go to the park to meet someone and then go home, then more power to you.... but don't get in on there... it's sad and desparate!!

  2. Let the prudes weigh in again to support the homophobic cops!

    The cops even admitted "They have created their own trails off the main trail." In other words, they're keeping out of sight. These sting operations are always about stigmatizing gay sex and what's sad is to see the chorus of gay people who play right along.

  5. Also, I think this is the first Pride Day in Calgary in 20 years that hasn't been rained out. Last year (or the year before?) it came down in buckets.

  7. As an out and proud Latino, I find it somewhat absurd that CNN considers Perez Hilton to be such a pioneer. What has he done that's so trailblazing? I don't hate the guy, but come on...

  8. Sting operations don't stigmatize gay sex. Having gay sex in a public park stigmatizes gay sex.

  9. I grew up with my back yard facing a public park where gay men lurked in the bushes looking to hook up. As a kid, I was soooo scared.. not at the gays, but the constant lurking and sneaking around. It's not normal.. and it's not right. I'm sure that KevinVT does his best "work" when nobody can see his face, but that's not the case for most.

  10. The sex sting happened near Tacoma (next to an Air Force base), NOT in Seattle.

  11. At first I wondered why the gay adoption bit was "news", then I looked again, ahhh, Bakersfield! That explains it.

    Good luck to the new family! And come up to Seattle if you need to go somewhere friendly.

  12. To address the not-lawyer Dan Savage's concern that the sting could be entrapment, no it isn't. Entrapment requires proof that the police somehow coerced you into doing something you wouldn't normally do (that's the simple version). If Mr Police Officer places an ad on Craigslist looking for anonymous sex in the park and you're dumb enough to go have anonymous sex in the park, it's not entrapment, it's stupidity.

  13. As for the sting, I'm thinking that it did, in fact, get out of hand and needed some action. But perhaps some warnings would have been effective.

  14. Where is the sting to get lying, perverted Politicians who are cheating on their wives with the baby sitter? Where are the cops to go after them?

    These cops sound like a bunch of nerds who were picked on in school and now became cops to exert some type of authority on others to feel special in this world.

    At the root of these sting operations is a mission ..."Get the gay man off the streets" and if you don't feel it's rooted by blatant homophobia, I've got property in the North Pole I'd like to sell you. Call me.

    P.S- stand up, speak up, show up, email, write, start face book groups, protest and be heard...even when it comes to police. Otherwise, change will not be made for us.
