  1. I plan to join the Heterosexual Awareness Month Facebook page. I can tug on my privates in public, say moronic things to women, call my bar buddies "fags", buy a sleeveless Hooters t-shirt, eat at Chick-fil-A, donate a dollar to Romney and have ALL of my Constitutional Rights. Downside: This is only for a month.

  2. Not sure I buy the Jeremy Renner story. Just taking Viagra doesn't give you an automatic boner. You have to be aroused by something. Or someone. So unless Renner was turned on by a flight attendant or passenger, or the seat belt was rubbing his crotch just right, nothing would have happened.

  3. Exactly what I was going to say, David. I think too many people are still ignorant about the way Viagra works, and imagine all kinds of extraordinary things they WISH they could experience. Hetero fantasists.

  4. "I think that her concern was about the security of the country. So that’s about all I know."

    Has there ever been a stupider, more useless "defense?" Yes we know she was concerned, because she is a paranoid nutcase who has no business being in office, much less on an intelligence committee. And then she goes on a witch hunt, and your defense, Mr. Cantor, is "Well she felt threatened. That's all i know." It's so stupid...I just...I can't...flames...flames...on the side of my face...

  5. No, it doesn't surprise me that someone was fired from Salvation Army for being bisexual--why--because I was fired from the Indianapolis Salvation Army for being gay after working in their retail division for nearly a year as an assistant manager who helped raise profits in two of it's most demanding stores.

  6. Apparently, "Heterosexuel awareness" is all about bashing gay people. Pathetic losers.
