RoadDaily Beast: Gay marriage doesn't play in Arkansas. "...inside Arkansas—which features one of the most competitive Senate races in the country as well as a closely contested governor’s race—the political impact has been near minimal. After all, both the Democratic and the Republican candidates in this conservative southern state are opposed to gay marriage. In fact, the only statewide official to support same-sex marriage, Attorney General Dustin McDaniel, is leading the legal fight in court to reinstate the ban.  But the fact that candidates from both parties are equally opposed to same-sex marriage isn’t the only reason that the issue has been blunted. It's also a double-edged sword that could hurt local Democrats and Republicans alike."

Meanwhile, state senators voted Tuesday to require Upstate and the College of Charleston to spend nearly $70,000 to teach the Constitution and other U.S. founding documents. That is the same cost as the colleges paid for gay-themed books that they assigned to freshmen last fall."

  1. Searching for Sugar Man was an excellent film, and certainly one of the best I've ever seen. I'm sad to learn that the film's director is not only dead, but from suicide.

    The world can be revolting sometimes, but it's the only one we get. Someone so young had a good chance to see better days, whatever the problem was.

  3. If I was in a public place with my kid taking pictures and Justin Bieber confronted me (with or without his goon squad) and demanded to pick through my iPhone to delete pictures he'd have to retrieve it from down his throat . This guy needs a beatdown or date with a coroner yesterday.

  5. Hey gays and lesbians, get your "Pride Guide" check out the cover with a dude who identifies as a straight woman who paid other dudes to cut off his wang. Cuz that really reflects your life, right?

  7. The decision by the Univ of South Carolina to cut funding to a "gender studies" center actually promises to be a good thing for gay people in SC. The center in question is not an institution that actually helps gay people or solves any problems. Rather, it is a bastion of "queer" ideology, which is inherently anti-gay.

    These centers don't house homeless gay youth. They don't combat anti-gay violence. They don't work for marriage equality. They just spout jargon, moralize, and work to promote the idea that gay people are "queer" - inherently in conflict with society, their communities and families. Just what gays in South Carolina do not need. And they deliver these homophobic messages in our name.

    The conference that triggered the budget review is called “New Normals, Old Normals, Future Normals in LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer) Community.”
    The last thing we need is for "queer" academics with no moral authority to tell us what is normal or good. I am delighted that their funding was cut and I look forward to reading about how they put their queer theory to work in the Home and Garden department at Walmart. Hopefully, some future funding effort can be directed at a group or groups that actually help LGBs.

  8. I'll be boycotting NY Pride. I don't want a woman's curves representing my homosexuality.

  9. I was looking through the "Pride Guide" thinking it's like a who's who of people gay-haters should boycott. Then I saw it - WALMART! Yes Walmart is supporting pride! This is really going to devistate the haters. I almost feel like going to Walmart now. Almost.

  10. Jess/Petey/Rick (same person, so I'll address you as one person): you have no job, tons of hate and no life. Negative comments is apparently all you have. How pathetic.

    Posted by: Tyler | May 14, 2014 8:06:27 PM

  11. @Tyler
    Petey is not Rick, he is however Jim Bryant, Jason and his newest on Queerty, Michael Mellor. Yes, both have MAJOR issues but they are not one in the same. Rick has his own sock puppets here....

  12. Tyler and Derek,

    If you like women's curves, you're not homosexual males.

    Posted by: petey | May 14, 2014 8:30:41 PM

  13. Listen Jimbo I can appreciate a woman's curves for what they are and they are beautiful. I can say this being a Kinsey 6 because I am well adjusted. However, what I cannot appreciate is an anti-woman, anti-trans, maladjusted, issued riddled hiv thruther troll who is a complete f@cking idiot.

  14. Derek,

    I don't believe a word you said.

  15. The ads in the 'Pride Guide' seem overwhelmingly male centric.

    Do lesbians not go to NYC Pride... or are they just not seen as necessary ad targets days?
    I know the advertisers decisions aren't the event organizers responsibility - but. seriously, the one sidedness is pretty questionable for such an inclusive-promoting event.

    Posted by: lookyloo | May 15, 2014 7:36:09 AM

  16. Oh trust me Jimbo you are an idiot.

    Posted by: Derek | May 15, 2014 10:00:03 AM

  17. Mike: And is some random man was taking pictures of your son on the street you would not object? Especially if you knew he was going to sell them to a paper and make a lot of money off those shots of your child? I thought not. Its easy to take shots at Beeber because he is such an immature tool but taking pictures of someone you do not know is wrong wrong wrong. Just because someone is "famous" does not make it right.
