Jun 5, 2012 Mason commented on Grindr Does Good.
But I hate it when friends are always checking Grindr when we're spending time together. Maybe I'm just not interesting enough to hold anyone's attention, but if you took the trouble to arrange to hang out with me for a beer or a meal, do you really need to be checking Grindr every five minutes in case some guy you don't know and, chances are, you're never going to meet, much less fuck, said, "Sup?" to you? Does it somehow boost your confidence that guys are clicking on your profile more than it boosts your confidence to have a friend who likes to spend time with you? Next time I want to go out with someone who spends the whole evening looking at his phone, I'll just go out with my husband.

@6 - It's a nice gesture, but it hasn't stopped them yet. Hate needs light to live, and Slog just turned on the Kliegs.
Jun 5, 2012 Mason commented on Prop 8 Headed to Supreme Court.
@1 - There seems to be a lot of hope that SCOTUS will decline to hear this case, but I tend to think the justices will want to have their say on it because it relies so heavily on Romer and they'll want to control where that line of precedent is going.

@3 - We're nowhere near the tipping point the country was at when Loving was decided. Back then, the court was just getting rid of some very old (centuries, in some cases) anti-miscegination laws on the books of just 16 states. Today, they'd be undoing very recent, voter-enacted bans in 36 states. The court might see where this is all headed in the long run, but they won't go there until most of the country is already there first.

Well done, Abbey. I'm sure voting booths for the fellas weren't too popular at Sufragette meetings either.
May 3, 2012 Mason commented on Me and Pastor Harris.
Dan should be thanking this Harris guy. His offensive comments are the only thing that got Dan's offensive comments out of the news cycle.

Wow, I've always wanted to get tickets to Hump. Now, no thanks. That was probably the most unfunny an unsexy video I can ever remember seeing. Blech.

Dying on Good Friday, just like Jesus: well played, Kincaid. Ima call Mary and and see if she wants go sit by your tomb tomorrow morning and see what happens.

And @14 - Leave it to some goddamned foreigner to teach us all a lesson about our own art history. Thanks, Jens, that was cool.
Apr 4, 2012 Mason commented on Volunteers Needed to Represent Vulnerable Children in Custody Cases.
@1 & 4: We live in a shit country where we can't even get health care to all of our citizens and you think we're ever going to get attorneys or trained professionals to look out for vulnerable children? What do you think this is, Sweden?
Mar 20, 2012 Mason commented on At What Point Do We Start Deriding Public Schools as Just Another "Entitlement"?.
I've never understood why "entitlement" was such a bad word. People are entitled to Social Security and Medicare because they paid into the systems their whole working lives.
