Madonna-Ciccone

Madonna—Madonna Ciccone, in fact!—has joined HRC's campaign to raise awareness about Russia's anti-gay laws, penning (Penn-ing?) a letter on behalf of the org. She urges our participation in HRC's #LoveConquersHate campaign. There's even a T-shirt.

For some reason I can't comprehend, the Human Rights Campaign decided to celebrate Goldman Sachs. Talk about tone deaf! Bad timing, bad idea. They lost me when they endorsed Joe Lieberman years ago—and if they hadn't, they've done plenty of lame stuff since then, too. It's unfortunate, because I want not to be against an org that's dedicated to gay rights. But HRC is really so stupid in so many ways.

IMG_7536Prove it!

As of midnight last night, it was exactly six years since my first post. It's been a tough thing to keep up with a dayjob and outside activities, and just when I think I might walk away, a valuable connection or interesting opportunity or a kind word comes my way. Thank you all for reading me.

Here are my favorite 100+ posts out of nearly 11,000. Please take some time to read (or re-read!) a couple and tweet or Facebook any you like.

Moving Target Comments (3)

Jason-Wu1
Jason Wu's Target-exclusive line is dropping soon—but did we ever get clarification from HRC as to whether Target is really as gay-friendly as they say, or should still be avoided for its donations to right-wing political causes?

Republicans Deny Cloture On Defense Bill—DADT Repeal Fails Comments (0)

PreviewScreenSnapz001"Ha, ha! We really screwed those gays!"

The legislative repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell is apparently dead—its cloture vote failed today on party lines, with asswipe Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia the only Democrat voting against it and cloture-teaser Susan Collins (R-Maine) the only Republican voting for it. Collins voted for it only symbolically—she waited until the very end to switch to a yes.

Images"I never miss a chance to screw a gay!"

President Obama's "strategy" (or lack thereof) and HRC's endorsement of it was a complete and utter failure; all he can do now is own up to that and offer something proactive—which he's been dead-set against doing so far—like an executive order or dropping the government's appeal of the Log Cabin Republican case against it.
