RoadDavid Beckham rocks some super-tight trousers.

RoadTransgender teacher kills herself after being mocked in Daily Mail article: "Lucy Meadows was a teacher.

Not long afterward, Meadows killed herself."

RoadJoe Jonas denies existence of sex tape.

RoadUnity Ticket LOLs: "It's one of the great untold stories of the 2012 presidential campaign, a tale of ego and intrigue that nearly upended the Republican primary contest and might even have produced a different nominee: As Mitt Romney struggled in the weeks leading up to the Michigan primary, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum nearly agreed to form a joint "Unity Ticket" to consolidate conservative support and topple Romney."

RoadGOP chair Reince Priebus tries to appeal to gay voters by bragging about his "great marriage".

RoadIs Pope Francis secretly pro-gay? "Why, then, did Bergoglio rail against gays in such a bigoted way after he was unsuccessful in getting support for civil unions? Because one doesn't become pope by doing otherwise. The country was about to pass the marriage equality bill, and Bergoglio was publicly showing the Vatican and the world that he'd go to the mat, organizing marches and railing against gays."

  2. What the pope secretly believes is not my concern. His actions speak much louder than what he holds to his vestments.

  3. Hey Donna, let's define some terms and clear things up:

    A troll is someone who posts things that he doesn't really believe just to stir up trouble. None of the people here who disagree with you have done that. I am not a stalker. It is not stalking for a gay reader of Towleroad to post a comment on Towleroad. You are the one who prowls the internet, trying to police LGB thought on "trans" issues, making sure there is no dissent. Do you target LGBs for harassment too?

    The DSM V will list both gender dysphoria as a treatable mental condition and Transvestic Disorder as a separate mental condition. They are two separate listings, and BTW Transvestic Disorder is not a fetish. In fact DSM V replaces the more narrow Transvestic Fetishism category with the broader Transvestic Disorder. "Transgender" includes not only transsexuals, but people with Tranvestic Disorder. If it makes you sad to be linked to Transvestic Disorder, then blame yourself and your fellow trans activists, since you are the ones who invented the broad catch-all term transgender. Now you can own all the disorders of your people.

    I never said that all trans people are unstable or violent. I said that trans activists are. Stop lying.

    Finally, I would think that a trans activist would be the last person to invoke the bar scene at Mos Eisley. Lucas based that scene off of a visit to a tranny bar. LOL!

  4. @Kiwi:

    I am not sure how you are complimenting "transwomen" when you tell them that they are "more man" than gay men. It seems you are deliberately misgendering them. Unless you simply equate being a man with having good qualities. Which would make you a blatant sexist pig. So either way, your comment is a massive fail.

    BTW, why don't you just come out as transgender. You are on your blog in a bra and panties. Whether you are a crossdresser or NGC, that makes you trans. Yet you refuse to self-identify that way. Are you ashamed?

  5. @Todd: just because you believe the hate you're spewing doesn't make you not a troll. And are you just blindly claiming I "prowl the Internet", or is there proof behind that? How does one prowl the Internet, as opposed to surfing it?

  6. Proof of your prowling is your own words:
    "I was on autostraddle the other day, and there was an extended conversation going on, and some clown came on and was saying how L Chat is like the only place for a "real" lesbian these days, so I went over to check it out"

    Why don't you just mind your own business and let people have their spaces on the internet. You went over to "check it out" because you and your fellow trans activist gangsters can't stand for any LGB people to have their own space without you monitoring what they say.

    BTW, thanks for admitting defeat on all of my other points. Enjoy the DSM V.

  7. @Todd: Obvious troll is obvious. In that spirit, allow me to unilaterally declare myself the winner in all of our arguments, and wish you a good evening.

  8. bill perdue, aka "todd" and every other name you've been using, your obsession with transpeople and myself is duly noted.

    i'm sorry that you feel emasculated by the strength and resilience of transpeople. try to emulate their courage rather than be angry that they possess what you don't yet have.
