MS Words

Microsoft has been busted for offering to start paying a blogger to make edits to its Wikipedia entries. I am 300% certain that other companies have employees making sure that Wikipedia entries are tweaked to favor themselves, but you have to shake your head at Microsoft for going out-of-house on this. Microsoft has admitted that it violated the Wikipedia terms ...

Gay Sheep: The Final Word (Hopefully)

The New York Times has finally weighed in on the “gay sheep” controversy of several weeks ago, crediting anonymous biologist blogger (and JMG commenter) Empty Pockets as unmasking PETA’s campaign to ruin the work and reputation of OHSU researcher Dr. Charles Roselli. Martina Navrativola, however, stands by her allegiance with PETA, saying, ““The more we play God or try to ...

Donnie Davies = Todd Quillen?

UPDATE: The “real” Davies exposed: HERE. After an almost 48-hour run of speculation that has gripped the gay blogosphere, tenacious and smart JMG reader “Chrome” (a frequent commenter here), wrote to me early this morning with his conclusion that “Ex-gay” Pastor Donnie Davies is actually actor/musician/improv performer Todd Quillen. Quillen’s personal site is here, his Yahoo photo album is here. ...

Open Thread Thursday

This week’s OTT is inspired by Donnie Davies. Complete the following sentence: “That’s as gay as………” My favorite still has to be the southern classic: “That’s as gay as Christmas!” I’ve also got a fond spot for “That’s as gay as lunch with Liberace!”.

But as I’ve said from the start, satire or not, the entire production has been brilliant pro-gay PR. Today, I’m more leaning towards believing that Davies is ...

Homo Phobo Rehab? Puh-leeze!

I haven’t said anything about the Isaiah Washington issue until now, because aside from the fact that he’s an actor I’d never heard of, from a show I’ve never watched, it’s just NOT that important a story in the grand scheme of gay activism. In a day when gays are subject to outright and open legalized discrimination, is it really ...

HIV Vaccine Reseach Moving Slowly

The outlook for an effective HIV vaccine remains bleak, even as several large-scale trials are due to report their results in 2008. Merck, Aventis, and VaxGen are all underway with vaccine trials, but scientists are hoping only that the results reduce infections “a little”, at least providing a springboard to future research. Highest hopes are pinned on the Merck study, ...

SOTU? STFU!

Last night Dubya was interrupted by applause 62 times. He was interrupted by the sounds of millions of eyes rolling 62 million times. But wasn’t it great to see Nancy Pelosi sitting up there? Overall the speech was deadly dull and by the numbers. Introduce heroes from the audience: check. Usage of the word “terror” two dozen times: check. Mention ...
