  1. How convenient for the Labour Party in the UK that Ed Balls takes a stand on gay marriage now that his party is no longer in government.

  2. A man won the Indy 500 for the umpteen-millionth time this year, with an all-male crew. In fact, all Indy 500s have been won by men, as has every major NASCAR event in history, with no woman ever having come close. I am proud to be a man and am proud of the male winners of these races as I am of the men who dominate virtually every other major field of endeavor, even cooking, demonstrating their superior talent in the process. Yes, I actually like men--some might say that makes me gay, but I know better.

  3. As usual, Rick pops up with his typical misogynist BS. Seriously, did your mommy rape you or something as a child, Rick? From whence does this irrational bigotry and hatred of women stem?

    Like the Tories NEVER did anything about gay rights until they were pressured!

    Get a life. Or a grip.

    NEw labour hos much I HATE Tony Blair but his team did more for gay rights then the Tories ever will. Just google.

  5. @LIAMB Question for you. Say I were a lesbian and you substituted woman/women for man/men in the post I made, would you refer to the lesbian in question as a man-hater? If not, why the inconsistency?

    Posted by: Rick | May 29, 2012 6:07:06 PM

  6. Depends, if the article was about males, and a lesbian posted the same statement but in the feminine, yes I would ask the same. The fact is, your statement was not just a general statement, but one of defiance.

    Lets face it, you can attempt to claim otherwise, but your posting history is rife with anti-female rhetoric. Indeed, you bend over backwards to proclaim your misogyny to a degree that borders on the obsessive.

    Posted by: LiamB | May 29, 2012 6:11:52 PM

  7. I hate women. My father used to dress me up like a little black girl when we used to have sex together, and that's why. Stupid liberal women made him think that me wanting to have sex with him meant that I wanted to be a girl, but I just wanted to dress like a BOY, like I was. A MAN. Because of pathetic feminists I never got to have sex with my father while not in drag and I'll never forgive you limp-wristed fagots for that.

    Posted by: Rick | May 29, 2012 6:22:02 PM

  8. I hope you effeminate queens and feminist liberal leftists realize that you're the reason my father would only let me suck his penis if I was dressed up as a woman. It ruined my life and it's all you fault.

    Posted by: Rick | May 29, 2012 6:24:21 PM

  9. Defiance? Defiance of what? The idea that as a gay male I should feel some sense of pride in women who compete in the Indy 500, which presumably is why the article was posted here? OK, I defy that idea.

    Yes, I defy the idea that as a gay man I should feel any affinity whatsoever for women in preference to men.

    Why was THIS story posted instead of a story celebrating the fact that the (male) winner of the race tied a record by winning it for the third time and has a chance to break that record next year, which was a much bigger story?

    Why? You know why? Seriously, you do, don't you? And that is a reflection of the perverse negative attitudes of people like you towards men, not a reflection of my attitudes towards women.

    Posted by: Rick | May 29, 2012 6:25:49 PM

  10. You pathetic leftist liberals like women more than men, and real proud gay men like me who sucked our father's manly penises are superior in every way.

    He tasted like corn-nuts and cow dung, and it drove me wild.

    Posted by: Rick | May 29, 2012 6:35:06 PM

  11. It's because of feminist women and the stereotypical fags that diva-worship them that I never got to perform fellatio on my own father out of drag, and I'll hate women and stereotypical gays until the day that I die because of it.

    Posted by: Rick | May 29, 2012 6:36:34 PM

  12. Just a note on all these posts by the impostor, namely Little Kiwi. Can you all see from reading them how seriously warped the whole living-vicariously-through-women/hating-men phenomenon that results from the internalization of homophobia can make an individual?

    Such people are just not mentally healthy--and that is almost always reflected in their difficulty forming any kind of friendship or relationship with other men.

    Posted by: Rick | May 29, 2012 6:43:19 PM

  13. What the heck is up with this Rick dude and why does he sound like some angry queen from 1954 desperately trying to assert his manhood by talking like a neanderthal? And thanks for your insane daddy issues, that was lovely.

    Um, I think this story is here because it's about gender breakthroughs, and most gay men who have spines and brains and hearts are pretty attuned to the relevancy of breaking through gender-norms and barriers that society has in place, for no apparent reason.

    It's not anti-male to celebrate the first-ever all-WOMAN Indy team, just as it won't be anti-straight to celebrate the first-ever all-Gay Male one.

    I don't know what your problem is, Rick, but you sound like one more in a long line of terribly nervous gay men who need to hate women so you can prove to some invisible bully that you're a real man. Thing is, real men don't say the things you say. A real man would have cheered those ladies on.

    Posted by: Tyler | May 29, 2012 6:43:43 PM

  14. "...needs to raise $200,000..."

    "We have $13,000..."

    "So we're at about 20 percent...

    Even though donations are tax-deductible, these numbers either indicate sloppy reporting or terrible math.

    Posted by: Mike B. | May 29, 2012 6:44:59 PM

  15. Rick, do believe the nonsense you type? I mean, you do realize that your insecurities and self-hating issues are visible from space, right?

    Posted by: Tyler | May 29, 2012 6:49:43 PM

  16. I'm a real man and I don't have to prove it. I do real manly things like enjoy being with other men. Especially my dad. He was the best top ever.

    Posted by: Rick | May 29, 2012 6:50:18 PM

  17. @Tyler First of all, use your head--it is amazing how many of you fall for the posts that Little Kiwi makes as an impostor, using my name. Not very bright if you cannot distinguish.

    But tell me, exactly what "gender norm" I need to "break through" as a gay man? How do you know that some of the male drivers who are succeeding are not gay--doing the same thing in the same way that the straight male drivers are doing? What norm do they need to "break through" if such is the case and what in the hell does anything women do or don't do have to do with it?

    Nothing, of course. Unless you equate being a gay man with being a woman rather than being a man......Yup.

    Posted by: Rick | May 29, 2012 6:58:37 PM

  18. Rick, can you point out specifically if in fact any of them are gay? OPENLY gay? Then it'd be a breakthrough.

    As far as I can tell, all of the women in the team are also open about being women. So yeah, it's a breakthrough, it's a first.

    They're a first in Indy history. That's a breakthrough.

    I'll tell you what gender-norm you specifically need to break through as a gay man, you need to grow a pair of balls, dude. You come across as such a wimp. Don't you know that only cowards say what you're saying? You're probably not even Out, because no Out gay man would talk the way you're talking. You live and breathe the closet, dude. Air gets tight, there's little real interaction, you start believing your own nonsense.

    But, since you attempted to twist what I said, I'll re-address it: the breakthrough is when any group that was previously denied entry gains entry.

    The first women to ______, the first openly gay man to ________.

    You refusal to see that sort of proves me right. You're likely the type that would write an essay defending why you don't need to come out and why you don't need to prove anythign that you say is true. With that in mind, I'll leave you to your misery. Complaining online is likely all you have left in life to hold on to. Let me be the gentle hand that encourages you to let go. Seriously, dude. Let go. And by let go I mean fall to your death.

    Posted by: Tyler | May 29, 2012 7:05:57 PM

  19. *elegant curtsy*

    Tyler, I could kiss you.

    Posted by: LittleKiwi | May 29, 2012 7:07:01 PM

  20. @Tyler Namecalling, personal attacks, and a wish for my death.


    Because you KNOW and understand exactly what my point is and it strikes you to the heart, as it does other gay men who lack a male identity and go through life living vicariously through women and hating men.

    But let me ask you, as I have asked other "out and proud" individuals to take this opportunity to reveal your true identity by telling us what your real name is, where you live, what you do for a living--including where you know, all the things that an uncloseted, "out and proud" individual should be expected to do......the same thing you would expect gay Indy 500 participants to do if they want to "break through" and expect you to celebrate them the same way you do the women (who lose every race they enter).

    Go ahead; set an example, right here and right now.

    Posted by: Rick | May 29, 2012 7:20:52 PM

  21. "*elegant curtsy*"

    LOL. And with that, he demonstrates all my points with a single post.

    Posted by: Rick | May 29, 2012 7:26:22 PM

  22. I'm sorry, but how is my being proud of those women "me living vicariously though them"?

    Rick, I'll just say what everyone else on here already knows: you're living vicariously though an anonymous online alter-ego. That's even more pathetic than what you think others are doing.

    I'll take your challenge, though. I can show who I am. Can you show who you are? You talk like someone who's spent way too long in the closet.
    Something tells me that even though I've just shown myself it won't be enough to get you to man-up and do the same, though.

    So there you have it. Me.

    I'm not afraid. Why are you? Oh, but we all know why :-)

    Posted by: Tyler | May 29, 2012 7:39:47 PM

  23. This Rick stuff is saddening. I don't know why the Real Rick (easy to discern) takes so much issue with women when every growth, liberation and success of them should be celebrated. But his reminder that gay men too sadly and too often don't have healthy and comfortable relationships with straight men seems to me appropriate. Although I love being a gay man because of the extra measure of love it has given me for other men, both gay and straight, I have to say that gay men generally don't seem very healthy or balanced to me. Lots of exceptions of course. So I WANT to side with Rick because he is so pro-male. But his equations don't seem very healthy to me either.

    What is for certain is that the filthy "Rick" posts here, written by a closet KIWI as yellow as his usual name slab, are the rantings of a much sicker mind than the real Rick's have ever been.

    Though talented as a most adept writer and wordsmith readers need to keep in mind that KIWI is a rich, spoiled leftist ideologue who's position is simply to take every liberal position and clothe it in high-sounding glitter. In fact he has nothing else to do and is accountable to no one. What can you say of a person who has actually posted that "there is no reason why anyone in North America should not be out about being gay"? This alone is the unsympathetic unreality of someone who never has to face reality.

    Posted by: UFFDA | May 29, 2012 7:46:42 PM

  24. Rick, I showed myself. Your turn. Or am I right, and you're going to write a long speech about why you don't have to?

    UFFDA, what's your issue? Even a cursory look at this site reveals that the reason people like you have a problem with this Kiwi fella is because he seems to be unafraid of the very things that are clearly still holding you back in life.

    What's "every liberal position", anyway? The ones that are based on facts? Why are you complaining about that?

    Posted by: Tyler | May 29, 2012 8:28:28 PM

  25. Tyler, I just fell in love with you! Intelligence is such a turn-on ;)

    Best wishes always xXx
