  1. I love that the birther freak is named Kreep.

  2. MANN Coulter? Ugh. I don't care for bigoted jokes at the expense of transgender folks.

  3. No, Ms. Coulter was using airy sarcasm. And you are guilty of transphobia. BAD show, guys.

  4. Sydney is positively apocalyptic. Signal of days to come?

  5. I can't believe that considering all of the harassment and anti-slur stories you post (sometimes from a knee-jerk soap boxy viewpoint) you have the nerve to call her Mann Coulter... i guess that's the easiest and best way to insult a woman? to call her a man?

    There's a lot to be said about her viewpoints, why take it to a sexist place?

    What exactly is the insult? That because she has a big mouth and is opinionated, she... becomes unlady-like? Is that what you're trying to say?

    It's degrading. I can see the transphobia argument, but mostly, it's sexism.

    You've done this multiple times. Is this your attempt at a witty blog nickname for her?

  6. What the fuck is with Towleroad's site architecture? The pages don't load properly or completely and the pop-ups are becoming way too ubiquitous. Makes checking in at work next to impossible, as most of us here do (I'm guessing). By the time I slog through multiple page loads here I could have visited Pam's House Blend, Huffington Post and Queerty and got the same info.

  7. Don't forget to call the Birther Freak's phone number and use up their time and $$$. 1-800-321-3247.

  8. You'll be on hold for a while, then you can hangup. Or better yet, ask some basic questions about the petition and you'll find you get nothing. Classy.

  9. I'm frankly more bugged that the "Mann Coulter" vid in question was taken down without mention and replaced, leaving the comments confusing to any who came to the post after the change. It seems dishonest and the fact that the text wasn't edited to reflect the change occurring reinforces my thought. The tone of Towelroad has changed considerably, both in the comments section and the quality of posting. Disappointing to see integrity slipping as well.

  10. As the video label clearly says - that's the dust-storm in Broken Hill, 700 miles west of Sydney.

    Saying that's Sydney is about the same as saying that Minneapolis is in New York.
