It would be impossible to make such generalizations.

I think someone describing himself as "straight-acting" says more about that person than any sort of hierarchy.

"Gay culture" is a complex thing, and increasingly diverse, and may be ending as we speak.

If I could boycott Kansas for their blatant Jim Crow bullshit, I would. But what the fuck is in Kansas anyway?

History always repeats, regardless of what GAF might want us to believe. This is a damn shame.

I was going to make a joke about how shitty the Royals are, but they're in Missouri anyway.

Missouri is a pretty confused state.


I bet there's a lot of gay people there and we just don't know it yet.

Interesting. Of course in the straight world everyone has individual preferences, but it's clear that high status is attached to slim-bodied women with full breasts, and regarding women of color status is attached to women with straight hair, light skin and long, narrow features. And while individual women have their various tastes, status is attached to tall men over short ones and muscular over skinny ones.

How does that feel? It seems like the subculture has been pretty significant to gay American identity the gay rights movement. It's amazing that real integration seems within reach, but does the thought of assimilation have any mixed feelings attached?

Three lottery picks in the NBA draft and a museum about the Wizard of Oz (probably).

Civil rights: a political agenda.

Why have a Constitution when we can just vote? Oh, wait, we're winning that too.

Do you really think that conservative, GOP appointed judges in super-duper red states like Utah and Oklahoma have some agenda?

What will it take for you to admit that it is unconstitutional to deny gay people access to civil marriage and that your opposition is rooted in nothing more than animus?
