Because Rape is Funny if its GAY …

Because Rape is Funny if its GAY …

I saw this last week, but it is all over the place now and just thoroughly vulgar and disgusting.  The reputation of the Pittsburgh Steelers likely took another hit today with the news that Steely McBeam, the team's official mascot, has been accused of sexual assault in an incident late last night at a downtown […]

Suzie McConnnell-Serio to replace Rene Portland?  And what does JoePa think?

The PG's Bob Smizik takes Penn State to task for allowing Portland to ride roughshod over university standards, policies and common decency. It's not like the Harris incident was the first against Portland. She had a long and documented history on the subject. As far back as 1986, Portland was quoted making an anti-lesbian statement. […]

The Trib – Joey Porter’s slurs offensive to some

Imagine if Joey Porter mated with Ann Coulter … they could spit out homobigot puppies left and right, well mostly just right.  I just had to chime in on this.  The Tribune Review printed a list of Joey's highs and lows during his Steeler tenure. I won't recant all the amazing athletic feats he accomplished […]

Buh Buh Joey Porter: Gay Bashing Steeler Cut Loose to Free Agency

Buh Buh Joey Porter:  Gay Bashing Steeler Cut Loose to Free Agency

Sometimes greed can be a dyke's best friend.  In this case, it means Joey Porter will take his trash-talking bigotry and hit the road for greener pastures.  I don't care if he made 879 tackles last year and was Most Valuable Stud three years running or even if he did single-handedly hold back the entire […]

The Trib Weighs in on Gay Sheep and Tim Hardaway

The Trib Weighs in on Gay Sheep and Tim Hardaway

Local opinion seems to be that our own con-alternative paper, the Tribune Review, is pretty anti-gay.  The fact, however, is that most of their gay coverage has been consistent with mainstream thought on gays — we aren't so bad after all, its not such a big deal, don't we have better things to worry about […]

How Long Until Hardaway Ends Up In Rehab?

How Long Until Hardaway Ends Up In Rehab?

“I don't hate gay people,” [Tim] Hardaway said. “I'm a goodhearted person. I interact with people all the time. … I respect people. For me to say 'hate' was a bad word, and I didn't mean to use it.” That's apology-take two.  He didn't mean to hate on us.  And he's surprised at the reaction […]

The PG editors chime in on Tim Hardaway's banishment from the NBA All-Star weekend in response to his “I hate gay people” comments. Former Orlando Heat basketball star Tim Hardaway showed just how profoundly ignorant a millionaire athlete can be and still tie his own shoes in the morning. That's a great line.

“I hate gay people” comment giving homophobes a black eye

This is just too delicious.  The Concerned Women for America are taking former NBA player Tim Harding to task for his recent homophobic rant.  The CWA fears that Harding's blatant bigotry will taint the anti-gay movement.  Or something like that.  Just check this out: “Hardaway’s comments are both unfortunate and inappropriate,” said Matt Barber, CWA’s […]

Schwartz of Squirrel Hill: Penn State coach Rene Portland is an adult working on a college campus who has created a hostile and intimidating environment for students.
