I’M ELECTRIC, CAN YOU BE ELECTRIC TOO?

You Are Lightning

Beautiful yet dangerous
People will stop and watch you when you appear
Even though you’re capable of random violence

You are best known for: your power

Your dominant state: performing

BEST UNINTENTIONAL DISS OF THE DAY

BEST UNINTENTIONAL DISS OF THE DAY

Me: So, I was watching the Enron movie last night, “The Smartest Guys in the Room” and what really got me were the people they interviewed that talked about Lay and Skilling from when they were in school and how they all were like “yeah, I totally saw that coming. Those guys were always crooks and jerks.” It made me wonder who they’ll interview when I am finally brought down to say “yeah, that Dawn Summers was always trouble.”

Sometime guest blogger DRobbski: Umm…don’t you first have to be up before you’re brought down?

Hmm…at least I think it was unintentional.

I DON’T LIKE REPUBLICAN SENATORS JUST AS MUCH AS THE NEXT GUY…

I DON’T LIKE REPUBLICAN SENATORS JUST AS MUCH AS THE NEXT GUY…

But this isn’t cool.

Mr. Senator:

How does this blog decide who to report on? It’s simple. We report on hypocrites. In this case, hypocrites who vote against the gay and lesbian community while engaging in gay sex themselves*.

When you cast that vote, Mr. Senator, represent your own…it’s the least you could do.

Actually, it could probably fall under some legal definition of blackmail, but hey, I’m no criminal lawyer. I don’t get how a openly gay person could be comfortable using “outing” as a threat to change behavior. On the one hand, it would seem to reinforce the idea that homosexuality is something to be ashamed of and kept hidden at all costs. On the other hand, it singles out gay politicians to be punished in ways that their straight counterparts, who vote the same way, are not punished.

It’s like punishing African-American Republicans by calling them white or denying them membership in national black organizations — discriminating against your own people because of who they are…isn’t that something minorities, of all people, should be vehemently against?

Sure, Republican/conservatism is bad and must be stopped at all costs, but can’t we use a nice sexuality/gender/race neutral way to change their Republican minds? Like…I dunno…waiting for them in an alley with a sack of oranges and a bat?
