commented on We Couldn't Have Done It Without Them
What I want to know is if Dan's Canadian marriage is going to be recognized, or there's going to have to be a redo in Washington State.
I am absolutely giddy about this. Everything is moving so far so fast, I can only imagine where we'll be in a few years.
Also, yay to my home state of Minnesota! We still may have that fucking anti-same sex marriage law in place, but we defeated the obscene anti-same sex marriage constitutional amendment. We even rejected that "government issued photo ID for voting" measure, which is also wonderful. Sadly, this "yay" is somewhat offset by the fact we managed to reelect Michele Bachmann. o_O

commented on Really, HuffPo? I Don't Like Effeminate Gay Men?
You say, "I happen like effeminate men and I've always defended . . . "
but it should be
"I happen TO like effeminate men and I've always defended . . . "
But seriously, where the hell are these guys getting the idea that you don't like effeminate gay men? Their asses?

You know, I think this whole, "Well, we shouldn't be able to force them to do rituals they don't want to do . . ." is really strange to me. Yes, we shouldn't be able to force them to do rituals they don't want to do, but when they refuse to do rituals because they are bigoted assholes, it makes perfect sense to call them out for being bigoted assholes. It's not like the only choices are "Let them do whatever they want without criticism" and "Force them to do what we think is right."

commented on Dan Savage SAVAGES the Pope!
I am saddened by this video because I can't understand a chunk of what Dan said due to the cheering/laughing. I, like 26, crave a transcript or better audio.

commented on Openly Gay Romney Spokesman Resigns
What I want to know is why it was a 'non-issue' for this Grennell that his boss is advancing the anti-gay agenda.
I can understand why Romney would be okay with Grennell being gay; after all, this Grennell's gayness didn't prevent Romney from using said Grennell. But Romney's anti-gay stances should have been an issue to Grennell.

commented on About Those Asswipes
You are aware there is a REASON women are supposed to wipe from front to back and not back to front, right? Hint: it has to do with POOP. Yes, that's right, POOP is full of all kinds of bacteria. Now, even if you get your butt all squeaky clean during the anal sex, so gloriously clean that there are no bacteria to get into any tear you make, that butt isn't going to stay clean for very long; shit will soon work its way down the pipe, leading to a glorious poop on cut extravaganza.
To put it simply, would you rub poop on a cut on your finger? I'm guessing not. But if you have a cut on your butt, there's no way to keep poop off it for long. Thus, the only way to avoid poop on cut action is to avoid the cut.

commented on DOJ's E-book Pricing Lawsuit: What's at Stake?
I also do not understand why the publishing industry can survive by selling me a paperback at $7.99 but will tank if they sell me an E-book at $9.99 instead of $14.99 or $15.99. The only way it would make sense is if it cost them more money to make a digital copy and sell it than to make a physical book and sell it, and I don't see how that is possible.
So! Who is going to explain it to me?

commented on Savage Love
I'm a female, but I can relate to CAT's boyfriend. One of my cats sometimes wants to be petted while I'm taking care of business. I don't know WHY, he just does. If my hands are free (and they aren't always), I'll pet him for a bit until my hands are needed elsewhere or he leaves, whichever comes first. I'm certainly not attracted to him, it's just that he doesn't understand appropriate versus inappropriate, and I don't care. Meh.

commented on Microsoft Has a Device That Can Translate Your Voice into Another Language, in Almost Real Time
Yeah, I'm not going to hold my breath. I am someone who likes to play Japanese computer games but only speaks minimal Japanese. As such, I make heavy use of things like Babelfish and Google translate, and let me tell you: those suckers are (more often than not) INCREDIBLY inaccurate.
Until we can get a translating tool that actually translates well, voice features and almost instant "translation" is useless.
