We here at Lesbian Central are pleased that our good friend and all-around groovy middle aged white guy John McIntire wants to expand his repetoire of gay jokes beyond the phrase “butt fuck.” He now seems hung up on kissing (lesbian kissing, Snickers eatin' men kissing, Ravenstahl's ass kissing …) but that's movement in the right direction. We hope one day soon he'll be able to get through an entire broadcast without sexualizing lesbians for his own sordid pleasure. We doubt it, but one can always hope. 🙂
Now for the real homo round up. Not the City of Pittsburgh Police on a Friday night in Schenley Park homo round up.
Check out Pam's House Blend on DOMA stances of the assorted Presidential candidates.
Why the statement “I support civil unions” is meaningless
All of this nonsense is why I've been saying that the Dem presidential candidates have an obligation to voters to define what they mean when they toss out “I support civil unions” as a salve to gays. Asking for clarity, commitment and well-thought-out answers on the matter is not flogging the issue. There is a morass of separate-but-unequal legislation being debated and amendments voted on “by the people” right now.
The Vatican wants “conscientious objector” status for Catholics who are anti-choice and anti-gay.
Meanwhile, the Anglican and Episcopal chuch struggles to find unity in the midst of turmoil over gay and female ordination among other social justice issues.
Polish President Lech Kaczynski told Ireland that homosexuality will lead to the destruction of the human race. However, he is willing to refrain from forcing people into therapy as long as they don't promote their orientation. The Irish were not impressed.
Two lesbians were arrested for a non-violent protest at the Focus on the Family headquarters. Big Daddy Dobson was not available for comment.
The US Air Force considered developing a “gay conversion” chemical weapon in the mid-nineties. Because apparently turning your opponents gay somehow makes them less effective in the battlefield.
And, finally a shout out to another homo-lovin comedian, Sarah Silverman who was quoted in Out thus:
“The people — both the Republicans and the pussy Democrats — that won't stand up for gay rights have made the idea of marriage ugly to me.”
