"We would encourage you to find music from a source more in harmony with your views than Mr. Mellencamp in the future."

As the judge ruled, ['Don't Ask, Don't Tell'] actually hurts our national security — and that is unacceptable at a time of two wars.

  1. John Mellencamp seems like an all around good person - nice that he's taking a stand on equality

    that Gay Housewives bullshit is offensive on so many levels... really not watching that

  2. I applaud Mellencamp! He's from the heartland (Indiana) and I'm happy to see that he supports same-sex marriage and equal rights for GLBT people. I'll be he's in fact in the majority in Indiana, but people there tend to be reticent to speak up. I'm glad he did!

  3. You can still be inappropriately groped by a person who is not sexually attracted to you. But I would give my skydiving instructor a lot more leeway in that department. If he needed to latch onto my taint for 20 minutes in an effort to save my life, I'd say, go ahead.

  7. I can personally verify that over 10% of the males in my ivy league college class are gay.

  8. Weren't the "A-Gays" already skewered by Armistead Maupin in "Tales of the City?" They were a joke then and they are a joke now. And Reichen, the fame whore, is still never going to be famous, except in her own mind!

  9. The attackers were from Staten Island. blech. The West Village is overrun with bridge and tunnel turds on the weekends.

  10. When Resume Lehmkuhl is your star, you know you are in trouble. I mean, I love his hair, but really? The world is not yet ready for such contemptible, superficial trash. When children stop killing themselves for feeling worthless, we might be able to afford a series that lauds the vain, shallow, and worthless as "A-list."

    Geez. Even Straight people cringe at the likes of Housewives and Jersey Shore. Can't we do better? Can we afford to do less?
