  5. Yuri I don't know what you're talking about. While it's true that McCain has been a supporter of the gay community she also campaigned for and still defends her homophobic father.

    I suppose I just don't care what she does.

  6. LOL, I guess MSNBC "let her go" from their contract, despite the fact I doubt she's been on their network in 2 or more years. She's just hired to Republican bash, then gets set to the side.

  8. Meh. Has GLAAD done anything notable and helpful this past decade? My generation hardly even remembers that they exist.

  9. Her father not only homophobic, he is also a war monger who wants US troops to stay in Afghanistan indefinitely. He also blamed the current admin. for the presence of al-Qaida in Iraq.

  12. Is she there to promote gay rights or to white wash homophobia in the GOP?

  13. What a bad choice, but like most non or not for profits, the board is probably made up of the largest donors.

    I do not trust her one bit, and this has made GLAAD less trustworthy.
