  1. Simiar to the Winston-Salem Methodist church, the Episcopal church near me (in California) stopped signing all marriage certifiates back in 2009 in protest to Prop H8 having been passed.

    Here's their policy:

  2. Good luck, Justin, on looking butch. It will take a lot of hard work on your part to achieve that.

  3. I used to watch Peter Wyngarde in "Jason King" when I was a kid. I was lucky enough to find a boxed set of the series - it's the campest child of the 60s I've ever encountered.

    If you can, try to listen to his rather extraordinary 1970 album "When Sex Leers Its Inquisitive Head."

  4. Know "The Boston Phoenix" well. Used to read the gay personal ads as a teenager. Cheap thrill

    We have "Grumpy Cat" Have to be careful or we'll have "Flaming Cat" next.

    Loved Jessica Lange in "Francis" (no connection to the new Pope)

  5. HIV does not cause AIDS. The pharmaceutical drugs firms sponsor a lot of this research into HIV because they want the results of that research to encourage the use of their drugs. It's a scam.

  6. HIV denialists are so 1989.

  7. Things happen for a reason! The Gold wheelchair or not, no more fur, even faux fur, for Gaga!

    Was trying to come up with a sarcastic joke about a porn dog for Jacobs, but hell, I won't and can't go there!
    Just another reason why I hate fashion designers in general!

    (And what is that ice queen female dog Wintour in the news for? ;-P)

  8. Oh, for Pete's sake... "Raccoon dogs" aren't dogs: they're a completely different genus. Calling them dogs is the same thing as calling foxes dogs.

  9. Not for nothing, but regarding Justin, my grandma would say 'God love him'. This is the equivalent of the southern 'Bless your heart'.

  10. WTF ?! DOG FUR ? Seriously ?

  11. After two decades I recognize when the HIV-pushers are once again, LYING for drug company profits. Again.

  12. I wonder if the ACLU will file a lawsuit on behalf of GLSEN,the way they did the student
    bigot and his shirt in Conneticut? Of course not. Joke of an organization.

  13. Justin Bieber, enjoy your youth while you can. You'll be all grown up and as butch as you can be all too soon enough.

  14. @Rich F.

    There is footage of Chinese workers skinning raccoon dogs alive for their fur. I highly doubt people who wear faux fur for ethical reasons will appreciate being misled into supporting that kind of cruelty, regardless of what type of animal it is.
