Facebook and the word “Lesbian”

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

OK, so this is just annoying.  Facebook added two categories to “relationship status”  – civil unions and domestic partnerships.  Woo hoo.  A nice win and accurate, too. So fast forward many months to this past weekend.  I realized I had claimed a name for my blog’s “fan” page (claiming makes it easier to direct people). […]

Ron Cook Has It Wrong: Harrison Did Not Apologize

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

James Harrison did not apologize for using a gay slur. He didn’t man up and say “It is a hurtful word and I shouldn’t have used it” Instead he blamed it on slang. “I also need to make clear that the comment about Roger Goodell was not intended to be derogatory against gay people in […]

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Just so you see a slice of public sentiment … James Bruno of McCandless stirred the pot by pulling back the curtain on the gay agenda to destroy the Catholic Church, force everyone in the nation to approve of anal sex and good taste in furnishings AND kill the fetus.  OMG, he’s on to us […]

Gil Remley to Sue Kerr – Sports Commentary in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I hope my paternal great-grandfather, Gil Remley, would be proud that Ledcat and I have an op/ed published in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.  Our topic?  Homophobia in Professional Sports and the Need for Teams like the Pirates to send a different message.  (The editor made it sound more lofty). Gil Remley ended his career in journalism […]

James Harrison’s non-apology for “gay slur”

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I read this late last night and choked on whatever was in my glass.  This man has zero understanding of LGBT issues.  Zero. He needs to be educated and I hope his management team recognizes that he is saying … well, first read his comments. (Full statement here.) I also need to make clear that the […]
