I understand the Board has decided that I shall receive a Notice of Remedial Warning,” he said in the statement.”

    $19??? I’d rather buy pot!

    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.

  • RomanHans

    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.

  • Jerrold

    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.
