One of Pittsburgh's most creative political bloggers put up a nugget this morning about former KDKA talk radio personality Mike Pintek using the word “homo” while hosting a program on PCNC. Pintek was discussing the use of South Park restrooms for sexual encounters among gay men.
According to Maria:
Mike Pintek was the host for Fridays' Get To The Point show on PCNC. During the discussion of a public restroom in South Park being listed on the Internet as a hot spot for gay men to meet, Pintek repeatedly used the word “homo.” The show's panel of guests looked appalled at the use of that word, but sadly, none of them actually voiced an objection.
Now I am no fan of Mike Pintek. And while I didn't see the show, I'm fairly certain Pintek was pressing all the gay panic buttons — we are sexual freaks, we like to have sex near children's areas (playgrounds, daycare, etc), blah, blah, friggin blah. Actually, I should say “gay men” not “we” because I don't think there have been many crackdowns on lesbians getting it on in the public toilets of Allegheny County. If lesbians listed their hookup sites on the internet, there would be a line of straight men three miles long outside those venues.
But I digress … so yes, Mike Pintek is pretty much a bona fide idiot. And I've expressed my thoughts on the public sex spankings.
But the word “homo” is a favorite of mine. And I go outside the tribe all the time on this usage when I'm talking queer turkey with John McIntire on KDKA — we homo everything. And he pushes all sorts of boundaries; last weekend, a woman complained about the phrase “carpet muncher” in a bit he aired. She's going to launch a hunger strike or withhold sex from her husband or something like that … whatever.
SATIRE. It is satire.
Pintek was not being satirical. He was being a fucking dickwad. So good for Maria for calling him out.

Anonymous shared his insight on the Mike Pintek matter, claiming that ranting about it somehow violated his free speech. Funny, I thought ranting about was exercising my free speech. Whatever.
Anonymous also decided to use lots of creative adjectives to describe homosexuals, most probably latent desires of his that account for him spending time reading a queer blog. Do us a favor A and stay in the closet, preferably as deep as possible b/c pathetic poser-breeders like you give the tribe a bad name.
If you want to spew your homohating garbage on the Internet, go buy your own fucking blog.
Sounds like Anonymous hit a nerve with this lesbian …. Hmmm. I applaud Mike for expressing how he feels. Why should he pretend that he likes or thinks that anything to do with homosexuality is normal? There are some homosexuals have no problem in expressing how they think that heterosexuality is wrong or disgusting … So, there are different opinions. If we all thought the same the world would be boring. At least we have the gays and lesbians to laugh at!
