    I agree. Someone has ONE moderately successful single and he gets a Behind the Music special. Who’s next… My Left Testicle?

  2. DavidH says

    Love Love LOVE Douchebags of Grindr. So happy someone made it. I can think of a few profiles I’ve seen that I want to submit

  3. Paul says

    You may want to note that the Douchebags of Grindr site has NSFW advertisements on it.

    Also of note: the email for submissions has changed. Before, if you searched the page author’s email in Facebook you were directed to a Chicago drag queen. Bitter, Table of One.

  4. jr says

    i could see how DB’s of Grindr would appeal to bitter fat old promiscuous femmy asian dudes who never get any action.

    take that DB’s!

  5. david says

    Please andy, that was highly unprofessional that you posted a VERY NSFW link to this post.

    Your website has been a go to place for me for gay news and I work at a very large corporation. Slip up like this could cost me a job. This is really not acceptable. I wouldn’t have said anything if this is but I am led to believe this is not the type of website you are establishing.

    I really hope things like this would not happen again.

  6. Marty says

    Maybe you should spend more time at your “very large corporation” working and not surfing the web.

    just a thought

  7. Craig says

    I guess my Ad Block is doing too good of a job because I can’t see a single “peen” on the DB site.

  8. Nat says

    “I guess my Ad Block is doing too good of a job because I can’t see a single “peen” on the DB site.”

    Seriously. I also work for a major corporation – evidently one with enough sense to use basic ad blocks.

    Also, get back to work, people. Be productive.

  9. rodca says

    Maybe some of you should watch the Adam Lambert VH1 Behind the Music and it may just let you know why he’s being covered. I somehow think you won’t though because its far more personally rewarding for you to be snarky instead of supportive, isn’t it?

  10. Jay says

    I’m not sure I understand the above posting about the tiff between Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Allen West. She started a fight by making nasty remarks about Rep. West on the House floor and so why should he apologize to her?

  11. Shannon says

    Look… are attracted to what you attracted to! Sex…is different from friendship…if you went to a site of men of Black descent …like “Black/Hispanic” men….you will see “no white and no asians”…..does not mean one cannot be friends….

    Adam Lambert is THE best voice since Freddie Mercury! If Freddie and Rob Halford had a kid 2Gether, THIS is what he’d sound like! (But ya gotta add in some Elvis DNA for his looks!)
    And if you B**ches would stop eating your own & check him OUT on YouTube, you could be a help to the first out & proud gay man to be signed to a major label since Steven Grossman in 1974 on Mercury! The time wasn’t right and he died before he could get a large following. (If you are gay & didn’t know this bit of trivia, SHAME on you!)
    Check out the MANY YouTubes available on Lambert and you will KNOW why he already has a HUGE hetero following! The LGBT community SAYS they want equality but when they have the chance to actually SUPPORT one of their OWN, instead, claws come out!
    Me? I could be male or female, straight or gay. That doesn’t matter. What SHOULD matter is the advancement of LGBT persons who are MORE deserving, IMO, of your support than ALL the Gagas, Chers, Bettes and Barbras in the world!
    So suck it up Q’s and SUPPORT this man! He is very involved in causes like the Trevor Project and “It Gets Better” to reduce the number of suicides of LGBT and Q youths.
    He has GIFTS that he is using, at the risk of his own career.He is fiercely loyal to the community. So return the favor by opening your minds and ears and shutting your mouths long enough to know what he is really about, OK? If you want the ignorance and intolerance to stop…start with yourselves.And watch the special on Adam Lambert on VH1.Class dismissed!

  13. Redebbm says

    @Jay They weren’t “nasty” comments she was pointing out that he was harming his constituents by voting for there “Cut, Cap, and Balance” Bill since he has many constituents on Medicare. Then he goes and rights a letter to here saying to come say it to his face and that she is “vile” and doesn’t consider her to be a “lady.”
    Overall its just some on floor fighting, it just highlights that Rep. West is unhinged from reality, especially when it comes to Medicare which he won’t address but feels free to attack rep. Wasserman-Shultz about commenting on the bill he voted for.

  14. Rusty says

    In case you missed it while you were running your mouth, Adam Lambert had the most successful American tour last summer, that included Europe, Asia, Australia and other countries. Your attitude is at best pathetic, dripping with envious undertones, and unbecoming even for a loser.

  15. Rusty says

    First off Jay, she did not insult him on the house floor, she did no more than every Rep does every day, and she did not use his name. Second, he is a hard tail that cannot take a punch, but he’s use to giving them, a paper tiger in other words. This man should be reprimanded by the house, he was out of order, this man should not be in congress. He is a smart ass that is use to beating other up, and giving orders to those beneath him, he does not fit in the real world, an certainly not in the congress of this country. Allen West is the vile person in this affair, he an idiot.

  16. David B. says

    oh let’s not kid ourselves Adam Lambert is more likely the kid resulting if Liza and Elvis had a child… LOL
