HomoQuotable – Rex Wockner

“We can lament that Mary (Cheney) is not everything we wish she could have been or could be — or we can reflect on just how mindblowing it is that the daughter of the U.S. vice president, in the most overtly antigay administration in U.S. history, is an open lesbian and is on national TV talking about it.” – Rex …

Friday Mailbag, May 12th, 2006

Joe, I don’t know if you watch Bravo TV’s “Top Chef” but I was watching the reunion show and one of the lines made me think of you because it was one of those inadvertent things that was funny as hell and the guy didn’t even realize what he was saying and sometimes you have things like that on your …

How Low Can We Go?

The latest Harris / Wall Street Journal opinion poll shows GWB’s approval rating has dropped to 29%, putting Dubya within one or two warrantless wiretaps of breaking Richard Nixon’s Watergate-era approval rating of 25%, the worst ever recorded for a U.S. president, according to some pollsters. (Harry Truman once hit 23% in a Gallup poll.) So many of us have …

Diverting The H8RS

Yesterday, from reading Kenneth Hill’s giggler on Worth Repeating, I learned that one must be careful when disparaging specific contestants on American Idol, lest your blog’s comments be overtaken by quasi-literate irate teenage girls who write all caps, screaming things like “OMG!!! IF YOU LIKE TAYLOR YOU MUST BE TRUE FAGG! OMG!!! CONSTANTINE 4EVR!!!” And today my pal Scott, author …

HomoQuotable – Mary Cheney

“Go fuck yourself.” – Mary Cheney to 2004 vice-presidential candidate John Edwards, mouthing the comment from the studio audience after he mentioned her sexual orientation during a debate. In an interview, Cheney also calls Edwards “a total slime” and John Kerry “a son of a bitch”. Poor deluded Mary also thinks that GWB is a “very good man” who just …

GB:NYC3

The 3rd Annual Gay Blogger Invasion of New York City is coming up. Spawned from the sick mind of Dallas blogger Mark, author of Zeitzeuge, this entire event is nothing more than bunch of trampy alcoholic gay bloggers staggering from one sleazy bar to another, occasionally falling on each other in hotel rooms. And thank Zod for that. No meetings, …

Hell Hath No Fury Like A Woman With DSL

Don’t Date Him Girl is “the internet’s largest database of lying and cheating men”. As I clicked around the site, reading some of the thousands of testimonials posted by cheated upon women, I wondered how a similar website for gay men might work. Then, on a hunch, I typed “gay” into the Don’t Date Him Girl keyword search. Sure enough, …

Urban Cougars? Mrrow!

For those of you who might be a little embarrassed of the gay community’s employment of zoological nomenclature to describe ourselves (bears, pigs, cubs, etc), you should be aware of the straight usage of the word “cougar” to describe an older woman trying way too hard to look young. Ouch. But just like fat gay guys created the bear scene …
