  1. FYI -Not to sound like one of those self- appointed hall monitors on this site, but the Meghan McCain link goes to an Angelina Jolie Youtube clip. I only say this because I do want to see the McCain clip. :)

  2. The FOX news anchor's name is Gregg Jarrett with a "J" --- not Gregg Harrett.

  3. MCCOYSMARKET just proved the above point.

  4. Wrestling is very homosocial, even homosexual. I know two gay former college wrestlers, and they have freely admitted this. Yeah, sex is not on their minds while grappling, but the entire sport is predicated on touching and pressing against other men. Channing protests too much.

  5. Wrestling flourished in homoerotic cultures of Greece and Rome. It's stupid to deny this.

  7. Assuming gays wouldn't participate in painful, violent sports is just another stereotype. These fools just see us as sissies playing with dolls. Strangely enough some st8 guys figure skate and some gay guys beat up on others for sport.

  8. Disappointed with this feelings-before-facts decision to bar Dan White's name from a "History Walk" piece that is about something he was an integral part of. I guess Milk and Moscone were killed by that mystery bullet from the JFK assassination, right?

    It's like the Oklahoma City Memorial, which you can almost miss Timothy McVeigh's involvement in. Without him, there's be a functioning building instead of a memorial.

    We must not pretend these people don't exist, and that they don't have something important to tell us. Their names aren't magic. It's quite OK to say them.

  9. I hope Johnny Depp can capture the Boston essence and accent required for this major role. Only Jon Voight has been able to perfect this type as Mickey Donovan in the "Ray Donovan" series.

    Whitey Bolger was captured in Santa Monica. Depp will really have to pull this character out, for the film to succeed. It's an amazing story.

  11. Re: wrestling. I never paid any attention to wrestlers in high school (last century/millennium) except for one lightweight lad with huge brown eyes..
    So Jim Provenzano's young adult novel PINS was a revelation. Gay high school wrestlers are portrayed wonderfully, with all that goes with the sport--concerns about weight gain and loss and all that goes with what is an obsessive lifestyle.

    I also recommend any of Chris Crutcher's YA sports books. I met him at a conference on gay youth in 2000' He writes well about kids, some gay and some not, and all very human and both strong and vulnerable.

  12. Chinese woman and Asians are good at writing gay male erotica because many date and wed (steal) our American males. Submissive works wonders. Asians love to date whites, and they make good pets. If you can't find a boyfriend "Go Asian!" How's that for racist ranting? Tickle my feet, is not an unusual request...

  13. @Randy, I don't think the names of killers should be memorialized. You can read about their role in history making events but I find it in bad taste to include their names along side of people who made a positive difference. I believe the Castro Community made the right choice.
