COMMENTS: Beenie Man, Thruples, Gore Vidal’s Legacy And More

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!

“A great man has been lost. Not just a tireless voice for the LGBT community, Gore Vidal was a tireless voice for atheists, humanists and rationalists. During his last years he was the honorary president of the American Humanist Association. He was among the last of America’s great intellectuals and it is a sad day indeed that he is dead. His accomplishments and his lifelong goals, hopefully, will not merely be resigned to history. I hope his life’s work is carried forward, for it remains relevant to the U.S. and the world at large, considering the current climate of the world politically and religiously in regards to LGBT and atheist people.”

“Several years back she cheated on her Jesus-freak husband (he’s on General Hosptial) and had to do a big mea culpa. Feel free to shove this back in her face (free speech and all). Also, she’s a terribly wooden actress.”

“It cracks me up that gay men are always so concerned with ‘rehabilitating’ their haters and giving them so many chances to “apologize.”

Some people are just bad apples and should be dealt with as such, but, of course, the Advocate brand of milquetoast journalism would disagree.”

“I went to college in Cape [Girardeau], got a good job there, had friends and family close by. But I got the hell out of there when I came out. It’s so ass-backwards and small-minded, there’s no way a gay couple could live there without being taunted or publicly ridiculed. And it’s a really boring town, which is why there are so many methheads and alcoholics— there’s nothing else to do!”
