@ #3 & #9.....Thanks to you both for clarifying. I'd intended to give credit to the original author at the time of my post.
Oct 24 TampaDink commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Mom's Boundless Boundary Issues.
Perhaps DAMNED could introduce her mother to one of the best anthems performed by the gay acapella group The Flirtations.

Or at least take something from the lyrics to respond to her mom.

Your children are not your children
They are the sons and the daughters of life's longing for itself
They come through you but they are not from you
And though they are with you they belong not to you

You can give them your love but not your thoughts
They have their own thoughts
They have their own thoughts

You can house their bodies but not their souls
For their souls dwell in a place of tomorrow
Which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams

You can try to be like them
But you cannot make them just like you
You can strive to be like them
But you cannot make them just like you

He & his surrogates will claim that this makes him smart and that Bill Clinton's affairs make him saintly.
Jun 22 TampaDink commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Good Priests, Shitty Bishops.
As another queer cultural catholic I was surprised to hear about the local bishop's recent blog post where he took ownership for religion (including his) playing a role in homophobia & bigotry. He also called for new gun laws.
My still practicing friends who told me about it also said that the bishop has been inundated with hate mail for showing some signs of being a decent human being. The cynic in me feels like he probably only felt bold enough to write this blog since he is close to retirement & has no fucks left to give. For what it is worth...here's a link to the blog post.

May 23 TampaDink commented on Donald Trump Is Out With a New Attack Ad.
This ad is probably going to sink Bill's chances of becoming our 45th president. I hope that Hillary's people remember that taking swipes at the opponent's spouse is not acceptable, unless your name is Donald Drumpf.
May 18 TampaDink commented on Donald Trump Is Not.
@4: Chutzpah (or if you prefer the Michele Bachmann spelling/pronunciation....shoots paw) isn't something that is appealing enough to have our 45th president be our last.
Apr 11 TampaDink commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Meat the Wife.
Given Dan's sage advice, I suspect that the wife will gladly accept alimony, child support & a dependable ex husband. Either way, CLAP gets the shaft while she gets the gold mine.
Damned (& poor) if he does, just damned to a sexless marriage if he doesn't.
Apr 4 TampaDink commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Thrilla In Vanilla.
I get the sense that the LW blames (credits) Dan with the invention of kink....and that her food reference might be related to her husband of 37 years announcing during a dinner party that he's actively bisexual & has discovered piss play. Ya know, the kind of thing that causes a dinner party to be unforgettable for everyone in attendance. (Especially the wife who is stuck washing dishes when her husband leaves the house in rubber.)
Seriously, why is the LW scolding Dan? Did her relationship implode from a disclosure session that began with, "Dan Savage says that....."?
Mar 11 TampaDink commented on Hillary Clinton: "The Reagans, particularly Nancy, helped start 'a national conversation' about HIV and AIDS.".
I agree, Hillary needs to take back her statement or at least clarify that she meant that R & N's failure to acknowledge the plague made people talk about why the fuck they wouldn't talk about it.
Feb 29 TampaDink commented on Oh Look, There's an Ad in Today's New York Times About What a Bad, Bad Man Dan Savage Is.
I hope that Dan will join the producers of "The Real O'Neal's" will join me (and the rest of the future fans of the new show) in thanking BillDo for the excellent reminder & free advertising. I've been looking forward to this since we first heard about it here on the SLOG but might not have remembered that it is premiering this month, were it not for this friendly reminder.
