They're more likely to be bothered by the roar of the engines, but once we're on the way down, that doesn't matter and they just enjoy the view.'"

  1. RE: Johnny Weir: Yes, I am certain that the producers care little if the performer is gay, provided that any such gay performer acts properly ashamed of it and shows the appropriate amount of discretion. F-ing bigots!

  4. Lest we forget about Marky Mark's past where he was charged with attempted murder:

    "As a teenager, Wahlberg stole cars, abused drugs and alcohol, and got into fights.[5] At fifteen, he was amongst a group who threw rocks at a group of African American school children on a field trip while shouting racial epithets.[6] The following year, Wahlberg robbed a pharmacy while he was under the influence of PCP. During the commission of the crime, he used racial slurs. He knocked one middle aged Vietnamese man unconscious and permanently blinded another in one eye before he was arrested by the police.[7][2] Wahlberg was tried as an adult and charged for attempted murder. Pleading guilty to the lesser charge of assault, he was sentenced to two years in jail at Boston's Deer Island House of Correction, of which he served 45 days.[8] In yet another incident, it was alleged the 21-year-old Wahlberg fractured the jaw of a neighbor in an unprovoked attack.[9]"

  5. There's much to admire in the Signorile piece to which you link, but what is it about slimy unindicted war criminal Dick Cheney that makes so many gays develop amnesia and/or deafness? Bravo to Signorile for outing gay Williams, then a shameless Cheney henchman, but it was not the ban itself that Cheney described as "an old chestnut" but solely the belief that gays are a security threat.

    And no matter how "tepid" Cheney was as SECDEF about the ban, it's inexplicable for Signorile to STILL see that as some kind of game changer when NOTHING functionally changed; over 10,000 gays were shit canned under Cheney's combined reigns as SECDEF and VPOTUS.

    [And, for the record, despite ubiquitous gay and nongay delusions to the contrary, Cheney has NEVER said he supports REPEAL, only "reconsidering" it.]

    Signorile also fails to mention that Cheney refused requests by members of Congress to supply their offices with the gay positive PERSEREC report & that the Pentagon even tried to have it destroyed before someone snuck Cong. Studds a copy for use in the lawsuit by discharged gay Annapolis midshipman Joe Steffan. Before Cheney's goons realized Studds had it, they tried to deny its existence, deny its validity, & deny it was a Pentagon study—all untrue.

    But BRAVO to Signorile for attacking the very idea of more studies, something virtually all of our "gay leaders" have failed to do. That "switch" by Gates after baiting us with his cowardly "personal" support for repeal gave Congressional fence sitters an excuse to continue straddling while The Study allegedly proceeds until the possibility of legislative repeal is smothered in its crib by midterm elections.

    Failure to universally denounce The Study is failure to prevent that death.

  9. Anderson Cooper is really ugly.
