I’m curious MSG, what is a real man?
From Talk About Equality:

The insinuation that someone who spends a few months a year throwing a ball in a hoop is any more of a man than someone who does 8 shows a week literally breaking their backs as they do their acrobatics on a stage is not only insulting, but it’s utterly false.

Kathy Griffin weighs in on Kirk Cameron

It’s hard not to hear her voice when you read this…

Alright Kath-eters. You’ve been waiting patiently and I’ve heard your cries. What could possibly be said about Kirk Cameron that hasn’t already been said? I’ll be honest, I’m really not shocked he said what he did. Think about it. He hasn’t acted in anything for YEARS. He’s been bible-slangin’ and preaching “the word” for over a decade. How did he even get booked on Piers in the first place? Having the will to say that shit is exactly how. You can’t tell me those series of questions regarding his stance on gay marriage and abortion weren’t the grounds for him being booked. If I’m Piers, the second my producer asks, “Do you want to book that 80’s teen-throb turned Jesus-Freak Kirk Cameron on the show next week?”, I’d say “Don’t get it”. Producer then says, “He’s agreed to slam gay marriage on national television”. If I’m Piers, not only am I rock hard, but I’m promoting that producer. Ratings my friends. Kirk Cameron should know thats the only reason he got on that show. His publicist, hopefully a gay, is probably the one that thought it up!!! Look, if you’re reading this post, you already know KC’s shit was ig-nant. But what makes it even more laughable is that it’s coming from this tv born and raised Good Christian Bitch (yeah Hollywood, I’m using the working title) made these comments from a pedastal looking down on the gay community at all. Does he really think, while doing his “love worth fighting for marriage event” (look it up NOW, tickets $35.00) that not ONE gay person has crossed his path… or jerked off to an old episode of Growing Pains? We’ll call him “confused” for now. I half kid people, I half kid. Kirk Cameron aka “Judgey McBackwards” said some nasty shit and will have to live with that stigma for quite some time but in the mean time, let’s have a laugh about it and gays, just know that I’M ON IT. XXOO, KG

GLAAD To Honor Any Mainstream Film That Gets One Thing Right About Being Gay

LOS ANGELES—Seeking to honor filmmakers for fair and inclusive portrayals of the LGBT community, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation announced Sunday the establishment of a prestigious new prize to be awarded to any mainstream motion picture that gets even one thing right about being gay. “We’re not asking for a two-hour-long pitch-perfect exploration of the gay and lesbian experience—just a single accurate, believable detail that feels in any way telling or true-to-life,” said GLAAD spokesperson Cheryl Weingardt, who promised a major cash prize and high-profile award ceremony to any Hollywood director able to deliver a film—any film at all—that includes a brief on-screen moment in which a gay character seems even somewhat authentic. “It can be a line of convincing dialogue, an emotionally honest reaction shot. All we ask is that you have someone gay in the frame for a couple seconds without it being completely insulting to the audience’s intelligence.” Weingardt added that she hopes her grandchildren will one day see a popular movie in which a gay person’s role isn’t limited to being the main character’s witticism-spewing confidante

"It would be the best birthday present ever if you would vote no on gay marriage"


- home-schooled 14-year old Sarah Crank (Her surname clearly being the line of business her family is in) testifying in Maryland against gay marriage.

Listen to this strange and bigoted teen.

The biggest issue I have with Work It is not the potential for it to make light of trans issues (Are straight men not allowed to do drag now? I really hope that’s not true because I don’t want to live in a world where I can’t laugh at Tootsie) but rather the way it seems to perpetuate the ludicrous notion that being a woman makes it easier to get a job.
The premise of Work It is that that women are entering the workforce at a higher rate, and so that being a woman is somehow an advantage in getting a job. If anything, it’s exactly the opposite. In female-dominated industries, males are very appealing because hiring them makes for a more diverse working environment.
Would this show make more sense in a male-dominated industry? I doubt it. Women often have to work harder to prove their legitimacy in those situations. Men assume the women are filling a quota and so they consider the women less qualified.
I’m embarrassed for everyone involved in Work It, but especially ABC. They must think so little of their viewers to put something like this on television. It’s an insult to women as well as everyone with or without a job.

Dear New York Post
Fuck off with your language. They were men dressed as women. For all you know, they could have been straight male members of your staff. If people dressed up as a Ninja Turtle and robbed a bank, you probably wouldn’t say “The Ninja Turtles robbed a bank.”

People headline:
"Zachary Quinto: I’m a Gay Man" 
This is bullshit paraphrasing at its worst. ZQ never says anything like “I’m a gay man.” He comes out in the context of the conversation, which I think was a brilliant move.

We Were Here tells the story of San Francisco during the AIDS epidemic.  For nearly anyone in the developed world, it’s impossible to truly understand what the experience was like for the gay men of San Francisco.
Try and picture your life more or less the way it is now. Suddenly, one of your friends gets ill and dies a few days later. Before you get the chance to properly mourn your friend, you find out that your ex passed away from a mysterious illness. Your best friend asks you to check out a red splotch on his arm. Neither of you have have any idea what it is. You lose your best friend shortly after.
Months go by and it feels as if everyone you know has died or is dying. You stop seeing familiar faces and you stop asking why because you don’t want to know the answer. What happened to that barista who wrote his phone number on your cup? You haven’t seen him around lately. You start to assume the worst when you someone stops coming around. By the time the worst of the epidemic is over, nearly every single one of your friends has died.
That was if you were lucky enough not to have been infected yourself.
Wear a condom. Wear a condom even if you’re in love… especially if you’re in love.
