Yeah. Don't be gay, kids. Instead, spend your days e-mailing pictures of bestial acts to people like good ol' Paladino does. 'Cause there's nothing wrong with that behavior at all.

Shut up, Paladino.

Re: Paladino -- wouldn't a dysfunctional homosexual be one pretending to be straight?

It's National Coming Out Day, so naturally Penn State's streets were lined with billboard-sized signs from protesters inviting people to come quench their thirst with Jesus or something.

I live in Maryland and there are TV commercials about October being GLBT History Month. It's about time, these folks are recognised for their great contributions to our society.

... denied assertions that Mr. Paladino was antigay, and noted that he employed a gay man on his campaign staff.
Poor guy.

Perez Hilton, who made a name for himself in the business by outing celebrities and drawing vulgar doodles atop their photos, has vowed to stop bullying. Hilton appears on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Wednesday, and promises that he'll make changes to his website, if that's what it takes.

"Over the last two weeks I have been doing everything I can to bring awareness to the teen suicides and gay bullying," Hilton tells DeGeneres, according to a pre-released transcript of her show, which was obtained by Reuters. "In doing so a lot of people have called me a hypocrite and a bully myself and a big one ... From now on I really want to be part of the solution and not part of the problem," said Hilton, who is openly gay.

DeGeneres said she was advised not to have the blogger on her show, but did so because she believes in second chances. She also asked Hilton if he'd go back to being mean if his new stance ultimately affected him financially.

"I've been thinking about this for a while, and this [the suicide of college student Tyler Clementi] was the impetus for it all. It's definitely a concern but I don't care," Hilton told DeGeneres. "I'm not motivated by money ... I just feel like this is the right decision for me."

Nice to see a positive response from him about the criticism. I will be curious to see if he sticks with it.

This would represent a significant change for him. Let's hope it sticks.

On a separate but related topic, I'm curious to know what people think about the issue surrounding "The Dilemma" and the change made to the trailer.

Universal Pressured Into Changing “Gay” Trailer For Ron Howard-Vince Vaughn Pic: GLAAD And Anderson Cooper Critical Of It – Deadline.com

Quote:
Universal has a dilemma on The Dilemma. The studio recently debuted the first official trailer for its forthcoming Imagine comedy starring Vince Vaughn and directed by Ron Howard, and the reaction in Hollywood was dismay and disappointment. Not because it looks like a stinker. But because it uses the term "gay" as an insult right in the first scene. "Ladies and Gentlemen, electric cars are so gay," Vaughn's character tells a packed conference room to indicate his ridicule. Immediately after Deadline posted the trailer (removed today by Universal), Industry insiders took to the comments section for a heated discussion over the appropriateness of showcasing this scene much less including it in the movie at all. Now outsiders like CNN's Anderson Cooper (see below) are disapproving of it as well.

What's strange is that the scene is completely out of synch with the rest of the movie. It's a film about two friends, one of whom discovers that the other's wife is cheating with someone else. If it had been a movie about two louts overcoming homophobia ("I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry" or whatever), that would be one thing -- but the joke seemed completely out of place. Will be curious to see if it is removed from the film altogether.

Anyone remember the debate over "Tropic Thunder"'s use of "retard" two years ago?

LOL. I'm imagining you sitting at the computer yelling, "Make sense Cori! Damn you!"

"Stupid Cori. Make more sense!"

/almost Homer Simpson

D'oh, damn my editing ways.

I tried to expound on what you quoted and ended up failing miserably, so I just took out the whole thing.

You made perfect sense to me.

I think if the trailer had come out a little while ago there wouldn't be this kind of controversy. Timing is everything.

Either way it's inappropriate so a little heat is probably a good thing.

This brings out the cynic in me to think it was deliberate to generate buzz before cutting it out.
