Damn it! My boyfriend and I had talked about flying to Seattle for the next HUMP, but we'll be in Egypt. Those t-shirts really just rub the salt right in the wound.

Thank you for the HUMP tour, we at least got to see some of the prior submissions in DC. Fingers crossed there will be another tour so we can see these!!!

The sense of urgency this trailer creates is way out of proportion with the subject matter. Also I'm gonna try and give them the benefit of the doubt here but I'm pretty sure they intentionally made and used a rip-off version of "Nara" by E.S. Posthumus.

@12 Are you serious, you thought most states had passed or were passing domestic partnership laws? Here is the reality: https://www.aclu.org/maps/same-sex-relat…

Those opposed to ME were generally opposed to DP as well, and those people didn't want to seriously offer DP or CU as a compromise until the pro-ME side started winning the debate, and the opposition panicked.

Also ME in 2008 was not an issue the Dems were pushing.

To your last point, are you saying the pro-ME side being the winning side is a problem for the Dems?! I see no other way to interpret that statement, so I would recommend a future in the pundit class for you, I think you'd fit right in at CNN or Fox.

Hi Ophian:
I am curious about your situation and have a few questions. Do you live in a state that worked toward implementing or obstructing the ACA? Did you qualify for any subsidies when trying to sign up?

My own view is that the ACA is a flawed, first step in the right direction, but I say that as someone who has had no real interaction with the law and its impacts. I currently have a decent plan through my employer, which I am thankful for, but I would really like us to join the rest of the industrialized world and have a single payer system.

I am pee-shy, and one of the ways I knew my BF was a keeper is that we were skinny dipping early on in our relationship and I was standing on the river bank not far from him and he was looking at me, and I just started going like it was nothing. My pee-shy anxiety didn't register him and therefore didn't activate. It was a pretty big deal for me. He is the first guy I've ever had strong feelings for and my body was hip to it before I was.

Side note to everyone who thinks just chug liquid until you have no choice but to go: for me it did not work like that. My bladder would lock down tighter than Fort Knox. I think it would sooner burst than involuntarily relax and cause me to pee myself. It is a strange thing, and thank god mine has calmed down over the years. Maybe one day I'll even pee at a urinal with all the other guys. Oh to be free.

"That's why gays are hated so much: they dare to be freaks"

@50 That statement is so profound.

Dan, I'm sorry to hear that you'll be dying of all the diseases.

Signed, a distraught fan.

I'm not really a fan of selfies, cause they're usually pretty bad from an artistic perspective. I'd rather have less pictures of better quality than more pics of lesser quality.

Anyways, the point of this tumbler is clearly to shame these self photographers. Some of them deserve it. A thumbs up and big grin at a holocaust memorial, yeah I got no defense for you. But the two girls in front of the Berlin Wall? 1. They aren't even smiling 2. Um they're not allowed to take a somber selfie in front of it but didn't David Hasslehoff perform when it came down? I'm sure the Hoff kept the tone respectful. What if they thought the graffiti on that particular section was neat and would be a cool background? I'm not even really offended by the selfies at the WTC memorial. When I was there I teared up cause I passed by a sign with flowers that said "Happy Birthday, we miss you Dad", maybe that experience hadn't hit them yet, maybe the camera came out and they went into automated smile for the camera mode, maybe they were visiting a landmark and went into automated, "I'm visiting a landmark must take picture mode." I have very mixed feelings about this tumbler.

@33 Oh come on! That's all you can say about it!? Some of us are shivering with antici... pation!

So until someone explains it I will hypothesize:

It was a large hook that curved up into a dildo, was inserted in someones ass, and then said person was raised up off the ground with it, perhaps swung around a bit?

Am I warm?
