RoadDarren Criss on his grooming habits: “I feel terrible for the hairdressers on Glee that have to pour gallons and gallons of gel and goblin’s blood or whatever the hell else they’re getting from the black market to tame my curly hair,” he confides. “Day to day, I stay away from combs… I don’t think I’ve combed my hair in 15 years.”

I think especially opposing fans. Some of the things that are said are over the top and out of control that I can imagine what some fans would say to an openly gay player.”

'I ask this question to myself and I have thought about it for a long time and the answer is ‘yes’,' he said."

  2. Is Ryan Mertz related to Fred & Ethel?

  3. Oh, and Mehlman has neglected to do the very-specific work that a man in his position would do well to do: namely, to within the GOP talk specifically about how a culture of anti-gay prejudice within not just society, but CONSERVATIVE CIRCLES, reduced him to being a cowardly excuse for a man who threw other gay people under the bus to save his own hide.

    how Conservatism is so tied to anti-gay bigotry that anti-gay conservatives are ignoring the reality that their bigotry will not make their own kids straight. that there is no way to avoid "GAY" - there is, however, a very easy and clear way to avoid anti-gay prejudice: use your brains and your hearts.

  4. Well, maybe Kim and Kanye will make good parents. As long as little North West isn't in psychiatric therapy by age seven I'll be satisfied. Lord, help them...please.

  5. North West?

    I once worked with a man named Russell Six. He married a woman named Paige.

    And she took his surname. Swear to god it's true.

  6. Mehlman can go f**k himself.
    I don't want help from this slime in a suit in any way, shape, or form, not now, not ever. The only think I want him to know and understand is that the war for LGBT equality was fought and won despite despicable gay cowards like him.

    This MF didn't just hide in the closet and go silently along with GOP bigotry, he designed the antigay platform they ran on. Conservatives have been and still are the primary political opposition to LGBT equality and yet he's still shilling for them ... 'Gay rights is a conservative issue'.
    F**k you again Mehlman.

    Get one thing right in your whole entire miserable f**ked up existence ... LGBT equality is a human right.

  7. Re: Zimmerman, kiwi

    Our local Canuck prog proves that he's a little fascist once again. Is their any difference between progs and fascists?

  8. I don't know how Mehlman lives with himself, but he needs to be frequently reminded that we will never know how many queer kids have committed suicide thanks to his contributions. I hope he lies awake every night in a cold sweat.

  9. Ken Melman is the lowest form of pond life.

    He is an absurd excuse for a gay man and needs to crawl away from the publicity he craves.

    Next thing will be that he is being supported by Andrew Sullivan or others from the social climbing circle in New York which he craves.

    He betrayed us all.
    He betrayed us all.
    He betrayed us all.

  10. @Jones:

    My words exactly and the same goes for John McCain.

  11. North West? Since both of the parents are famous for ABSOLUTELY NOTHING AT ALL and have gotten extremely rich from cashing in on everything, would not the logical name for a child of Kim and Kanye be Ka-ching! Feel very sad for the baby . . .

    Posted by: Mike | Jun 21, 2013 5:58:30 PM

  12. That news about Darren Criss was vital information
    North West? Who left that compass in the maternity ward? Another "ri" Suri, Nori...

  13. The damage Mehlman has done to thousands of LGBT couples can't be forgiven,nor can it be ignored.
    He's scum,end of sentence.

  14. Mehlman can't even get a boyfriend. Gay is sex -- sexuality. The fact that he is so roundly despised by his own is interesting. Not all gay people are cool. Haven't you learned that? If he's damaged marriage he can't be all bad.

    Posted by: Gbe | Jun 21, 2013 6:13:42 PM

  15. I concur with all of you about Mehlman - I think he is a complete sociopath so I doubt whether he regrets anything he ever did, because it's all about him.

    He's just like the Christofascists - Mehlman is truly despicable.

    Karma is an incredible thing - let's see how it plays out for him.

  16. Yeah, I read that Zimmerman's jury was a combination of Whites and Hispanics. Now, Zimmerman being a member of the new NYTimes classification "White Hispanic", it is not known whether the "Hispanics" on the jury are brown, black, or white ones.

    Posted by: MIke | Jun 21, 2013 8:31:59 PM

  17. I agree with @jones: Mehlman can go f**k himself.

    If this were a just world, he would have to walk around with a brand on his forehead and a scarlet letter on his chest broadcasting what a traitorous POS he is.
