commented on NYTimes Prints Clueless Op-Ed By Stupid LGBT Gun-Fondler
"I don't think you should have firearms where people are drinking," NRA chief Wayne LaPierre said during an interview on CBS's "Face the Nation."
Is LaPierre suggesting the removal of guns from a significant percentage of American homes? Given the contributions of guns and alcohol to domestic violence, this may be the first good idea he's had.

commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Get Out There and Fight
I've shed a lot of tears myself coming back to this after a week offline. But the thing that makes me so wildly hopeful in spite of it all is the melding, the synergy, the converging arcs. People of color coming together with LGBT folks after California's Prop 8 and the battles for marriage equality. LGBT standing with Black Lives Matter over police brutality. And now, more support and love for the latin@ LGBT community. The growing cries for economic justice, prison reform, mental health and addiction treatment, immigration reform, universal health care, on and on. Every Trump, every fundamentalist, every homophobe, every bullet—hell, every mean tweet—has the exact opposite of its intended effect. It's like watching a jackhammer on concrete where the cracks heal and the block grows thicker with every chattering blow.
The right-wing reactionaries should be the ones going into hiding, if they hope to nurture their toxic ideologies in the dark. There are a lot of closets available for cheap.
