  1. Oh, how I used to love going to Target. Haven't been since the start of the Boycott. Oh, well.

  2. Gaga is so full of it, it is ridiculous. No one believes she is on the business end of any of these decisions. Target is clearly going to reform their ways just to be able to sell her CD? Please. Meanwhile she is letting them do it without proving any reforms on their part.

    Maybe she is on the business end of these deals after all.

  3. The Kansas bill was tabled. Yesterday: http://progressivetoo.com/2011/02/21/kansas-drops-hate-bill/

    Thanks, though.

  4. You know, Gaga is the number 1 artist right now, with the fastest selling digital download single ever. If she demands that Target start to associate themselves with LGBT groups, they are not going to take this multi-million dollar artist lightly. People coming into their stores just to get her cd might start buying other stuff while they are in the store, creating a huge profit not only from her cd but from other things that people may buy. I dont see other artists saying similar things. When Gaga does stuff like this, why are we canibalizing ourselves and our supporters? Is there a lot of others who are doing similar deals, or at least claiming to do so? So why are we attacking the people who are at least trying? Give it a rest, at least the number 1 artist right now is trying her best to help us in any way that she can.

  5. Fake Sarah Palin likes real Sarah Palin on Facebook. How low this woman can go? I am sure teabaggers adore also this one.

  6. re: Richard Simmons. hopefully that bush will succeed in devouring him whole.
    re: Sports magazine. it would be nice to see a few actual sports columns in gay publications, instead of just leering photos of hot jocks
    re: Kansas. If christians want the right to discriminate against the gays, than the gays should have that same right against them.

  7. I don't know why the LA Times article on the vandalism in Long Beach skirted around the fact that the buildings that got vandalized housed the Gay and Lesbian Center and a longtime Long Beach gay nightclub, Club Ripples.

  8. This Michael Lucas thing sounds a lot like when the Israeli Apartheid people were allowed to march in Toronto's Pride parade. I was just thinking, "...why?".
    Now I have nothing against the organisation, because the one in Toronto is very reasonable and all they really do care about is seeing the quality of Palestinian life improved. I can't speak for other similar organisations in different cities, but Michael Lucas's accusation smacks of the old, "If you criticise Israel for any reason you are a rabid anti-semite. Israel is perfect." which is, obviously, very UNreasonable.

  9. Hi Brian,

    First I'd like to ask how long you've been a subscriber to Compete. If you haven't been a subscriber, I'm curious to know where you've picked it up.
    If you haven't actually seen Compete, I would encourage you to contact us at 480-222-4223 so that you can see first hand what our magazine is all about (and hopefully change your mind about what you think we are).
