!! OMG, take that: Nazi Health Care Opponent !!


Gay House Representative (no, not representative of gay house music, but United States House Representative who is gay) Barney Frank put a crazy opponent of health care reform in her place at town hall meeting on Tuesday night. I really wanted him to take of his clip-ons and shout “Hold me back! Hold me back!”

!! OMG, how homophobic: Tim Hortons !!

Tim Hortons was slated to sponsor a Marriage Day Celebration in Rhode Island. That all sounds fine until you find out that the celebration is anti-gay marriage. After negative press, Timmy’s decided to pull out of the rally:

Tim Hortons announced today it would withdraw its sponsorship of the upcoming Marriage Day Celebration, which is to be held in the shadow of a stately mansion in Warwick, Rhode Island. The event is organized by the National Organization for Marriage, a group that lobbies against the legalization of gay marriage, and the sponsors behind an ad campaign released in April that famously equated the gay marriage lobby to a gathering storm. After local blog the Providence Daily Dose reported yesterday on Tim Hortons’ choice to sponsor the event, the negative attention reached the company’s head office in Oakville.

Looks like we’ll be able to continue to enjoy sprinkle donuts after all.

!! OMG, forget where he was born: Obama is Trying to Kill You! !!


A new Republican conspiracy theory has emerged basically stating that health care reform is a secret plot to kill old people and comparing Obama to Hitler. Didn’t they realize with Palin that “the big lie” doesn’t work? And is it weird that I get the tingles from Rachel?

!! OMG, how divisive: Gay Generation Gap !!

gaygenerationgap090629_1_560.jpg
Are the young gays way too placid about about gay rights and the hurtles that are left to jump? Or is there simply just not a need for the queer activism of the past because things seem to be going our way now? Is this freedom enjoyed by the next generation of gays what Stonewallers were fighting for, or was the next generation supposed to become stronger warriors?
An article from NEW YORK MAGAZINE discusses the rift between gay generations:

Public infighting is a big minority-group taboo–it’s called taking your business out in the street. And it may seem strange to note this phenomenon at a juncture that, largely because of the fight for gay marriage, has been marked by impressive solidarity. But let’s have a look. Here’s the awful stuff, the deeply unfair (but maybe a little true) things that many middle-aged gay men say about their younger counterparts: They’re shallow. They’re silly. They reek of entitlement. They haven’t had to work for anything and therefore aren’t interested in anything that takes work. They’re profoundly ungrateful for the political and social gains we spent our own youth striving to obtain for them. They’re so sexually careless that you’d think a deadly worldwide epidemic was just an abstraction. They think old-fashioned What do we want! When do we want it! activism is icky and noisy. They toss around terms like “post-gay” without caring how hard we fought just to get all the way to “gay.”

And here’s the awful stuff they throw back at us–at 45, I write the word “us” from the graying side of the divide–a completely vicious slander (except that some of us are a little like this): We’re terminally depressed. We’re horrible scolds. We gas on about AIDS the way our parents or grandparents couldn’t stop talking about World War II. We act like we invented political action, and think the only way to accomplish something is by expressions of fury. We say we want change, but really what we want is to get off on our own victimhood. We’re made uncomfortable, or even jealous, by their easygoing confidence. We’re grim, prim, strident, self-ghettoizing, doctrinaire bores who think that if you’re not gloomy, you’re not worth taking seriously. Also, we’re probably cruising them.
