RoadQueers for the Climate launches #SaveTheStraights campaign to raise awareness about climate change: "It’s a very tongue-in-cheek way to frame climate change. Maybe to be even more specific, and be a bomb thrower, [the problem is] mostly probably rich, straight white men – the CEOs of all the big fossil fuel companies, and the Koch brothers, and the folks that are obviously not just destroying the climate, but destroying our democracy. It’s kind of a broad-stroke, stereotypical answer, but I think that the gay community has an interesting contribution to make, because many of the people challenging LGBT equality in the U.S. have been the standard bearers of the patriarchy right."

  1. I think if Madonna were sitting in my jury box I'd be just a tad distracted! I'm sure she'll get an immediate dismissal.

  3. Why wouldn't Dolly Parton fall in love with that dog? They obviously have the same hair stylist.

    Don't get angry. I'm just having a Joan Rivers moment.

    I love Dolly Parton

    I love Dolly Parton, and I'll always will love her.

  4. Again, can someone point out where Lady G "attacked" other fans or whatever?

    Just like Joan Rivers "storming" from an interview.

    What is with these stupid buzz words?

  5. But DERRICK she's so so so white. What's the matter with you? I'm never taking your racism seriously again, never.

  6. @ "I'm never taking your racism seriously again, never."

    Then don't. I'll be playing my Patsy Cline and Hank Williams Sr CDs, and ignoring your racist ass. And then I'll throw in a Dinah Washington CD to throw you off.

  7. "Later that night, a member of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a gay rights that dresses up as nuns, and that person's husband, were attacked by three men and a woman in the Castro District"

    Well, either liberal San Francisco itself is becoming fed up woth the "gender non-conformists"......or the city's "multiculturalism" has caught up with it and is backfiring on it, as it eventually will do to all gay white liberals......

    And yet Queers for the Climate (see other story) goes on with the Gay Far Left's crusade of hatred against straight, white, men......the very group that has led and funded just about every significant victory for gay rights in this country, while racial minorities led the fight against us in those battles

    Well, maybe some of the members of Queers for the Climate will get beat up, too--I certainly hope so.....

  8. If I hate other LGBT people, does that mean anti-gay people will like me? My personal relationship with my family depends on it.

  9. Remember, I come here every day to spew my nonsense because my own family hated me, and I never got over it. I have no friends, nobody would ever lower their standards to have sex with me, and I live each day to come to Towleroad and remind all the other commenters that I'm a testicle-deprived wimp who is nothing more than the pathetic cowardly homo my father always told me I was.

  10. lol the byline on the Madonna story says "she was dismissed because her presence was causing a commotion at the courthouse." I see what they did there!

  11. Isn't this the most attention Carl DeMaio's gotten in months?
