  2. That Sean Hannity link is helpful. Although his opinions were pretty mainstream in the late 80s.

    Re. the outrage over gay mean eating feces. There is some fecal bacteria ingested with rimming, although this is not exclusive to gay men, but rather to rimmers.

  3. What's missing for Sandra to drop a f-bomb at the Critics Choice Awards -- with her humor and/or from being startled with the awards show interruption of short, loud voice recording interrupting her acceptance speech.

  6. Hannity has always been a worthless piece of pond scum. He cannot suppress his own virulent bigotry.

    Just another one of the clueless many with with homo issues in their psyches.
    Hannity has never had to work in his life; he just opens his mouth and spews hate....and gets paid for it by the hating masses.
    I guess he knows a lot about eating feces.

  7. Whoever painted that picture of Bayard Rustin for use on the postage stamp or approved it should be shot!

  8. Mike: I agree, Rustin was a handsome man in youth and older adulthood. There must be photos available that would present a better image themselves or as the basis of a good painting.

  9. Oh North Carolina, you've done it again. Sadly, my dog is from Lexington and I'm an Eagle Scout. Neither she nor I will be joining Trail Life - although I bet they have as many gay kids as BSA did.

  10. Looking might have some value, but nothing has topped the masterpiece 5-year series, Queer as Folk, period since it completed its last season.
