  1. Who wouldn't like to have Matt Bomer naked in his bed?

  2. Lance Bass is a very lucky young man, he's got one hell of a family, mine disowned me over 45 years ago. Catholics only allow their priests to be gay, not their kids.

  3. The Unicorn Lair story is from 2012.

    You do know it's 2014, right?

  4. In my next life I'll be married to Matt Bomer and and never have read Ayn Rand.

  6. Well, I imagine Matt Bomer's sister might object to his being naked in her bed, but other than that...

    There are many, many crazy groups like NOM out there, but they don't get any funding and therefore don't get any publicity. The press is a vicious cycle. You get publicity to get funding and you get funding to get publicity. Publicity brings funding and funding brings publicity. You are either in or you are out. Right now NOM is going from "IN" to "OUT". Once their funding dries up they will be ignored like all the other nutjob groups you don't hear about.

  7. I used to like Tovey, until he started giving interviews where he said that he avoided playing gay characters because they were too
    "risky". I guess the money and exposure of an HBO series overcame his fear of "risk".

  8. Anti-gays one the one hand censor gay sex education, and on the other hand blame gay youth for high HIV rates; then pretend like they aren't related.

  9. While Lance's mom is among the better Christians, I still take offence to her statement.

    "...he has not accepted Christ and is lost."

    No. He has rejected Christianity, and is free.

    Those of us who have had more than mere intellectual reason to question the Bible have been fortunate to have that little extra incentive to dive into it and make up our own minds. It is a shockingly cruel and immoral work that most people never read, except the bits they're told to. Start on the first page, read as much of it as you can stand (do try to make it to the end) and ask yourself if a moral deity would run a world this way.

    This humble-brag from Christians that they are sad that a non-Christian is "lost" is so annoying.

  10. What a cute, likable chap Tovey is. Looking forward to Looking.

  11. Re: the carrying of the rainbow flag. I think we need to steal the "don't tread on me" flag the teabaggers have taken as their symbol. After all it seems to apply to us as much as, if not more than, it applies to them.

  13. Nice of Tovey to be so chivalrous, but in my opinion any man who wants to be an actor still isn't straight, even if he is not gay or bi.
