RoadCatholic League nutjob Bill Donohue says 'gay dog' story proves that gays get 'special rights': " It must be said, though, that the shelter is not exactly inclusive in its policies. To wit: Had poor Elton not been identified as a homosexual, his heterosexuality would not have been enough to save his hide. The moral of the story is: Being gay is not only a bonus for humans these days, it is a definite plus for dogs as well. As for straights, the lonely and the disabled, that’s another story altogether."

RoadVirginia lawmakers approve bill inviting any religious or political university student group to discriminate and still receive funding and access to campus facilities: "This would make LGBT students particularly vulnerable to discrimination because universities’ protections for sexual orientation are not enforceable under Virginia law.

    Bill Donohue can chill out and know that if someone had given up their dog becuase it was “Catholic” it would be adopted just as quickly. Some people have no sense of humor!

    We tried to watch Grey Gardens (the original documentary) last weekend and and my partner and I were both too bored to continue after 25 minutes. I realized afterward that it was later re-done as an HBO movie starring Jessica Lange. Now I’m wondering which version is it that other people say they liked?

    The US has the most adulterated food supply in the world; which may come as a shock to most people, but those of us that have to watch out for an array of specific allergy provoking ingredients rather quickly learn this, with the natural further investigation such conditions demand.

    Though I’d hardly call horsemeat an approved additive, it just goes to show how we get all upset when an unapproved additive is exposed as widely used.

    Then again, one might question the veracity of the DNA tests that have been done that arrive at the conclusions that there is actually horsey added to BK burgers. It’s not as though scientists haven’t been shocked before that their assumptions about genetic sequences being entirely original to something were way, way, waaaaaay off.

    On a lighter note, it’s charming and funny of Morrissey to make a joke out of his bladder infection hospitalization that rendered my 4 Reno tickets of little consequence, this being my second attempt to see him. The first was back in NC during the Kill Uncle tour. He cancelled his appearance then too. I guess it’s just not meant to be…

    GregV, the original GG documentary is legendary but I find it difficult to get through too. The HBO movie is fantastic and Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange are amazing in it. Definitely recommend it.

    David Beckham is not the highest paid soccer player in the world. Leo Messi is.

    And if you list them by salary, excluding endorsements, I don’t believe Beckham is even in the top 10.

    Whether in their parent’s basement or their Chelsea apartment, I guess the sex-starved and lonely will compile such lists; especially if their out-of-work,

    Please stop linking to Kenneth Walsh. He’s an unrepentant hater of the mentally disabled.

    Is Hank Plante on crack? In what unicorns and rainbows universe was he in when he wrote that article? Oh wait, he must be trying to be ironic! While there have been great strides accomplished in the past year and those who worked so hard to make them happen deserve our thanks and praise. But over ? Not even close and the only fat lady I hear singing wears a 49ers uniform and today she sings a different tune.

    I’ll cop to watching the “Naked” episode of Glee, a show I stopped watching after last (lackluster) season, purely to see lots of Trouty Mouth nearly naked. I was not disappointed.

    BITTER… – it’s because it’s Friday night and no one has asked any of us out. Guess I’ll just make up a big vegetable dish and and while chopping parsnips pretend they’re Little Kiwi’s fingers.


    ZZZZ. Bringing up Kiwi again!? No wonder nobody wants to be with you. Sounds like you got issues. Let it go UFFDA or whatever other name you go by Rick, Jason, Yupp, Marcus, Steve.

    AUDI-OWNER ( what a laughable nom de plume, are we supposed to be impressed by such a transparent bid for attention?) – There are in fact a lot of sharp people who show up on Towleroad. Be sure you’re not categorizing yourself.

  13. Don says

    I would vote for Rush Limbaugh for Mayor of NYC before I would vote for Christine Quinn. She has the integrity of a sewer rat. She traded Bloomberg’s support for agreeing to change the term limit rules so he could run for a third term. She’s an enormous piece of garbage. Just because she’s a lesbian doesn’t automatically make her fit to be Mayor of this city.

    “Gay rights war nearing an end.” LOL!

    Do gay and bi male students receive explicit instruction into how to safely have anal sex, from their public school education?

    Does anyone think the straight majority is on board with this?
