COMMENTS: Taking On 20/20, Santorum, Savage and Jason Russell’s Gay Speech

Time for the Queerty Week in Comments, with the most compelling, thought-provoking or just downright bitchy comments that came directly from you, the readers!

“Well, in all fairness, Cuomo pitched Ravi one softball after another. It was like he was the self-appointed defense attorney. At least in the snippet quoted above, it sounded like the two of them agreed that Tyler Clementi was somehow expendable, and needed to just “become a man,” whatever that means, or take the consequences. I blame 20/20 just as much as Dharun Ravi for the self-righteous and inappropriate tone of the whole interview.”

Jon takes the ABC news show to task, in Dahrun Ravi on 20/20: I Wasn’t The One Who Cause HIm To Jump Off The Bridge.

 

“Good thing the local cops didn’t check out the steam room. A friend of mine went on an gay cruise and practically lived in the steam room for the entire trip. No tan, but soft skin.”

 

 

“Ohhhhhhh, Evan!! Ohhhhh, Evan!!

What sucks about Denver?

Our freaky deaky, unique public art?

Our internationally renowned museums?

Our mix of gorgeous wildlife and urban sprawl?

Our exploding music scene?

Our 300+ days of sun?

Our pretty residents (we boast the 4th fittest state in the nation, and NY didn’t beat us!)?

Our reputation for having some of the friendliest locals in the nation?

Our restaurant and alcohol snobbery that has left our dinning scene leaps and bounds ahead of others?

Our lax marijuana laws?

Our ability to turn out the best reality stars (Hello, Nina Flowers! Hello, Mondo Guerra!)

Or, I’m willing to wager it all on this one, are you one of those New Yorkers pisses off about the Yves St. Laurent exhibit only hitting Denver, and skipping NYC? I’ll send you pictures! It might almost feel like the same thing!”

DenverBarbie was one of many commenters who had some issues with writer Evan Mulvhill slamming Denver in An Open Letter To Tim Tebow, New York City’s Newest Evangelical Football Star.

 

“Anything to stay in the limelight. I don’t care about either of these media attention whores or their sissy slap fight. They both sound like two little girls who aren’t totally BFFs anymore.

Instead of writing love letters to Santorum maybe Savage could be helping the freaking kids he claims to care so much about.”


Oh Ok
 doesn’t like the war of words, in Dan Savage: Rick Santorum Can Pray For Me, I’ll Gay For Him.

 

 

“The man makes Chris Colfer as Kurt Hummel look butch by comparison.”

“Okay people, This is the 21st century. You cannot go on Facebook, Twitter, Google, MSN, etc. without reading what just happened three seconds ago. News sites don’t post a spoiler alert, it’s a frickin’ news site.

If you can’t watch the show that night, stay off the internet until you watch it. Otherwise deal with the fact that you WILL find out eventually from someone. It was like Americans trying not to read the HP books and getting pissed when people would spoil the plot line of the next film.

Get over it. Life goes on. There are more important things in the world over your ability to watch a television show as it airs.”

Don’t Be Stupid addresses the spoiler sports, in What The Hell Did Willam Do To Get Kicked Off Drag Race.

      If Queerty has any character (lol) they’ll allow Mulvihill to go back and apologize for insulting both Denver and NYC, two cities he evidently knows nothing about.

      Hahaha. Somebody getting kicked off of a reality TV show doesn’t count as NEWS. Especially in the context of that article, which was a gossip column trying to figure out what happened.
      Also, the comparison to Harry Potter is especially dumb, because the books came out YEARS before the movie, not HOURS.

      In regards to RuPaul’s Drag Race and the spoiler about Willam being disqualified, I think the majority of commenters were just asking for the spoiler NOT to be in the headline. I imagine there’s quite a few like myself that get their updates from websites through some sort of feed, and we can pick which stories to read based on the headline. I live in Louisiana and unlike many of you in larger metropolitan areas, I can’t watch RuPaul’s Drag Race live because we don’t get Logo TV, so I can only watch it online. Some of the commenters who defended Queerty’s decision to put a spoil in a headline, as well as the Queerty writers themselves, obviously didn’t take into account those of us in America who don’t have an option to watch the show live, and you basically ruined it for us.

      Tom compare Dan Savage and Santorum is beyond idiotic.

      Lets see, one of them wants us to not be legal, and the other got CNN to stop inviting groups like NOM on to discuss gay issues.

      Oh yes, they’re EXACTLY the same.

      Queerty realizes that Oh, ok is a troll, right?

      @Fawkes: Exactly, you should not encourage that kind of behavior. It only feeds into the nonsense.

      I don’t get Drag Race where I live either, and it’s just my routine to set the alarm about 90 minutes earlier on Tuesday mornings and grab a cup of coffee and watch the show then the Untucked show. Yeah, it didn’t work time-wise once or twice and I just skipped to the end to see who sashay’d away.

      I agree, it is just respect for your readers not to put a major twist or plot point (let alone the ending) in a headline less than 24 hours after the show is widely available. I recognize not all blows consider themselves journalism, but this is one general guideline used by many news outlets that would be good here. Especially considering that most places without Logo have to wait for the show online or to see via another means. Nothing is hurt by being more careful with the headlines…its a small consideration for everyone who has to watch it on delay for any reason which ia increasingly more and more people in general. That said, the headline should be spoiler free ALWAYS with people smart enough to know not to click through if they don’t want to be spoiled. Common sense should be a two-way street.
