WINGNUTTERY

If you haven't watched TLC's My Crazy Obsession you are really missing out on some wonderful guilty pleasure watching and you should especially tune in tonight to check out the guy who is super into living like a mermaid. Apparently it is not a good idea to get in the way of Busta Rhymes' morning cheeseburger lest you want to have homophobic epithets thrown at you. Earlier this week a Catholic priest appeared on Fox News and claimed that Catholics are being oppressed by gays. Pardon me while I don't shed a tear for him. 

It is somewhat disconcerting to be agreeing with Bill O'Reilly but, he continues to have to fend off members of the Christian Right who were upset by his "bible thumpers" comment in reference to gay marriage; this time it was "Dr." Laura Ingraham. Alan Keyes appeared on a right-wing talk show recently to let everyone know that gays are committing crimes against humanity. And Rep. Louie Gohmert continues to show that no one is gonna take that "craziest congressman" title away from him as he somehow manages to link his opposition to gun control to gay marriage leading to sex with animals. Well done!

ENTERTAINMENT

In a some-would-say apropos marriage of subject and medium a mosaic artist has made a portrait of Lindsay Lohan completely out of trash. Jimmy Kimmel asked his audience to play the ever-confusing game of gay couple or straight friends. Also Bill Maher was a guest on Kimmel's show last night and laid into the mean-spirited opponents of marriage equality

GAY NEWS

GLAAD has announced that it will honor former President Bill Clinton with it's first ever 'Advocate for Change' Award at its Los Angeles GLAAD Awards. In an amazing piece of quantifiable proof that support for marriage equality is on the upswing, check out this graph depicting Senate support for same-sex marriage. And Kobe Bryant says Magic Johnson's gay son is (and should be) a non-issue. Now if he can just get the Lakers into the Playoffs.

  1. Dude, the Laura who calls herself a "Dr." is Laura Schlessinger. Laura Ingraham is also a right-wing radio zealot, with similarly troubling views regarding "teh gays", but she doesn't parade any degrees in irrelevant fields in order to try to enhance her "authority".

  2. why is Bill Clinton being honored for a LGBT award controversial? his daughter has been vocally supportive of our entire community for 6 years now. she was obviously raised right by her parents.

    I don't understand any complaining over Clintons.

  3. @ J.C.

    Because these QUEENS are never satisfied. Even when someone admits to being wrong and does a full 180 and "evolve" on gay rights,the uppity freaks of our community still have to b***h and moan like teenage girls.

  4. My partner and I are proud gun owners who happen to be gay and neither of us think it is "crazy" to resist new gun control laws. When you call people crazy or stupid because they believe in the US Constitution you've forgotten what it means to be American. If you like disarmament so much then move to Iran. I hear they have no personal weapons and not too many gay people there.
