Clinton v. Bush: The Public Debate (Buy Tix!) … How Maine Was Lost (Geographically)

ON OUR GAYDAR — News, notes, clicks, and quips from around the web.


→ It’s Clinton v. Bush, the debate. Tickets for the February event go on sale Sunday.

→ Porn pastor Craig Gross and Jason Harper apologized to gays at Atlanta Pride for the religious types treat them.

→ David Mixner points to the top of his head and says, “I’ve had it up to …”

→ Dan DeLong — the married straight Illinois high school teacher suspended for giving students the option to read about homosexuality in the animal kingdom — returned to class after receiving a warning, and agreeing to this statement: “I agree with the Board that the material in my class was not age appropriate for my sophomores and for that, I apologize. I understand the Board has decided that I shall receive a Notice of Remedial Warning,” he said in the statement.”


→ Why Maine went the way it did, community by community.

→ Is Peter Tatchell trying to “censor” a book just because it includes what he claims are libelous statements about him?

Gossip Girl‘s upcoming threeway has the Parents Television Council pissed — and everyone else thrilled.

→ Lance Bass and that girl who sang “Ironic” are buddy buddy.

→ HIV-positive gays have another thing to worry about: the rapid transmission of Hepatitis C during sex. Researchers are calling it an “epidemic,” but it’s mostly affecting those who have unprotected anal and oral sex.

      I’m gonna get a little biased here for a moment and say screw you Queerty for referring to Alanis as “that girl who sang ‘Ironic'” but Lance Bass by name. Alanis has a had a monumental career – and for this homo – an immense impact during my difficult teen years. Bass is known for a boy band from a decade ago and for, um, being gay.

      Boo, Queerty. Boo.

      In regard to the Dan DeLong story: he copped out. To say that the article he assigned was somehow “not age appropriate” is a total lie. Way to stand up for yourself Dan.

      Joey’s got it. If Mr. DeLong had made his students read a similar piece about how all animals are heterosexual — you know, what science taught us until about three minutes ago — nobody would have said a word.

      I’ll second half of what Mike is saying.

      More importantly, how long and how interesting can a debate last between these two?
      How long and how fun would it be to teach a rock to speak Chinese?
      If you didn’t answer both questions almost the same way – you’re dead to me.
