A Slippery Slope to Hate: Gay Bar Murderer Snared in Arkansas

I would be remiss not to comment on the gay bar rampage in Massachusetts.  Last night, the murderous Jacob Robida was captured in Arkansas after killing his female passenger and a cop. (365gay.com) Robida targets gays armed with a hatchet and a gun.  People are asking why and scrambling to link his neo-Nazi fetish with his apparent homophobia.  Wake up […]

Catty Call – PG Column Throwback to When Women Were Girls

For proof the PG's inevitable downward spiral, one need look no further than “Just Ask Cat,” a misguided attempt to offer advice to Pittsburgh's lost and lovelorn.  Would-be columnist Catherine Specter dishes out bad advice more often than Joe Grata disses Penndot.   Ms. Specter is caught up in a retro-delusion that with the right […]

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Had dinner with my long-time friend Amy (27 years or so) and her adorable two-year old daughter last weekend.  She informed me that her 80ish grandmother had heard my “Lesbian Correspondent” segments on The Temporary John McIntire Show and was very pleased.  Apparently, Grammy is a big fan of both McIntire and Lynn Cullen.  Obviously […]

PA Rep Mike Diven: Homohater AND Illiterate?

It seemed like such a simple request.  She wrote to The Honorable Mike Diven, Republican member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.  Her mission?  To ascertain how Diven would vote on the proposed anti-gay marriage amendment to the Pennsylvania Constitution. What Diven offered in response is a testament to why the Democrats should be able […]

Political Dissent Not Appropriate at SOTU; Women in Tee Shirts Shake Up Capitol

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Even while acknowledging that wearing a tee shirt to the SOTU is NOT a criminal offense, the US Capitol Police's actions have once again highlighted the egregious “no dissent” policies of this administration.  From CNN.com Anti-war protester Cindy Sheehan wore a shirt with the message “2,245 Dead. How many more?” — a reference to the […]

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

In another stunning display of how desperate Pittsburgh media outlets are for any Steeler oriented story, the Post-Gazette's very own fashion editor LaMont Jones evaluates the “manliness” of the Steelers' gold pants. Apparently, the Steeler Nation is aghast at the thought that our hometown heros could be perceived as “girly men” in gold.  Their alternative?  […]

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I found this little tidbit while idly surfing the net (and not watching the State of the Union address) on Women's Hoops Blog  It would seem that our revered football coach has been a longtime defender of Portland's hate-policies.   Joe Pa, then and now the most beloved and powerful figure at the school, refused to […]
