      He’s a cutie…And he seems like a nice guy, unlike that douchebag they had filling the “token gay guy” slot last season.

      Wow, what an unflattering way to address the Farrah Fawcett entry. If you were trying to be cute and/or funny, you failed miserably.

      I have to agree with other posters that the Farrah Fawcett comment was in very poor taste and disrespectful. Shame on Queerty.

      “Farrah’s faucet turns off.”

      Wow. That’s classy. What is this National Enquirer of LGBT blogs?

      Snark always has it’s place… but not in this case.

      The real hunk on The Real World this season is CJ. He is just a total hottie. Also, it will be interesting to see how Bronne ends up by the end of the season, because I’m not even sure he really knows what his sexual orientation is.

      Ohio is currently considering its own anti-discrimination law. Its come out of committee in the state house but hasn’t come up for a vote yet. In Ohio, you have to vote to get it out of committee and that vote was 8 for 5 against (it seems to be split down party lines at the moment).

      At first I thought that the remark about Farah was completely out of place, but I don’t know her stance on gay rights issues. If she supports us then shame on you. If she doesn’t then is that the best you could come up with?

      Cold BLOODED, Queerty! I love it!

      But, maybe it’s not exactly tactful when referencing a woman that died after a long and extremely painful battle with cancer, so…

      Love the snark, the context notsomuch.

      The Real World guy says he is not flamboyant in the interview. that he is not that type of homosexual. I just have one thing to say … “Bitch, please!”

      @swellster: I don’t think he comes across as overly flamboyant on the show. The one that I’m into watching all season for though is Bronne. I think that Bronne will be very interesting. Maybe he will become like Landon (Duel 2) and someday admit to having an sex dream about another man.

      I understand that the primary target of this website is Gay men, but to dedicate a whole article to the death of Michael Jackson and only talk about Farrah Fawcett in one sentence that is demeaning to her life and to her struggles with cancer is an insult and a really fucking hateful thing to do. I came to you for my LGBT news for only a short while but I think I will go somewhere else from now on.

      @Michael W.: Perhaps he isn’t a muscle rat that desired to live at the gym five days a week. He still looks pretty damn hot to me. Sorry if you don’t approve. Although, he is by far not the hottest boy on the show this season which truly is saying a lot about the other boys (two of them are scorching).

      Well I think that’s enough queerty for me. From the snarky queens to the very low budget jokes… I just think its gotten a bit out of hand.

      @Inlookout: Queerty is pathetic. It is like whoever is running this blog has the intellectual and emotional maturity of a 13 year old, Perez Hilton is looking like Walter Cronkite compared to these losers.

      Queerty, Farrah Fawcett was a human being and she fought for her life. Your blog has become nothing but negative, hate filled and disrespectful. Nothing about this blog is intelligent, witty or funny. Its like listening to some old, ugly, bitter, alcoholic queen whose self loathing has spilled over every aspect of their life. You contribute nothing worthwhile to the LGBT community nor any community. Its to bad it was not you who exited the planet instead of Ms. Fawcett.

      There is a difference between gallows humor and being mean.
