    So enlighten, where in the NY Post have they taken a position of insensitivity on the GLBT community?

    Well there's that famous article by Allen Funterberg called "Queers, fags and how to drag them behind trucks". I thought it was unbiased.

    That sure is the best strategy to win over people who are insensitive towards you - give them more reasons to be insensitive towards you.

    He should have banned the Post charging $1 for a weekday edition of the paper.

    I used to buy it everyday when it was $0.25 not that long ago. Now I just get it free online.

    They are intolerant of intolerance. I'm always amazed how they don't see the irony of blasting the boy scouts for banning gay tranny lesbians from joining and then they do the same thing to people who don't have the same beliefs as them. How can you expect others to be "accepting" if you can't be accepting.

    With that kind of guest list, The New York Post should be honored that they were banned. Then again, maybe GLAAD was just worried about the event reaching critical douchebag mass.

    I didn't care for that article, but only because in was in the business section despite not explaining how I could diversify my stocks.

    You'd think they'd spend that time bragging about how awesome it is that they're being overtly and warmly accepted and included everywhere you look.

    Or maybe you wouldn't. Does it really surprise anyone anymore that once someone with homo sapiens genes is victorious, all they want to do for the rest of their lives is stomp on whosoever gave them shit before their victory?

    Lovely bunch of people, us homos.

    Fez agrees totally with whatever GLAAD announced. No questions asked.

    You know what would help? More evidence of what TLB might look like. (Christ I hope that L stands for lesbian.)

    And the Daily News should be banned for this hack line...

    Eeeeeeeeyugh.

    They are essentially in the professional outrage business....as most of these groups are. It's even in their name (...Against Defamation). They need people to continue making insensitive remarks in order to stay relevant. It's good for business (which is what it is) and pays the bills and lines the pockets.

    And with people becoming more and more tolerant and more open to gay rights these days...the outrage groups are running out of things to get outraged over. So they start taking things out of context and overblowing :rolleyes: remarks and they pit groups (conservatives) against other groups in order to keep their supporters "outraged" and hope that they can goad others into making remarks that they can get outraged over. It's a business.

    That was a good article, but not as good as the Rock Hudson article in the health section.

    The Freddy Mercury column on the dangers of toothy blowjobs was quite enlightening.

    I loved the Chastity Bono article on learning to accept and love yourself.
