• Philadelphia may not be as brotherly as some would like to believe: neighbors allegedly harassed gay couple for three years. Says one of the gay duo:

They left [a phallic-shaped steel rod] on our doorstep. [It means] we’ll stick it up to you. You better leave or we’re going to stick it to you. They put ‘gay faggot (expletive)’ on the window. I’m embarrassed, I am stressed, depressed and afraid.

Who knew a steel phallus could cause so much psychological damage?

  • Rt. Rev. Dr. RES

    For thirty years, the bigotry and homophobia of FL legislators has been let stand. The campaign begun by Anita Bryant and Jerry Falwell then still has repercussions now.

    Their DHS loses children in the system…and allows gays and lesbians to foster parent children until they are adults, but only if they are unadoptable by real heterosexual parents. Never can there be same sex families with adopted children in FL.

    This man’s despicable behaviour goes far beyond his self and community betrayal for inappropriate and criminal sexual acts, but with voting the theocon right wing on these family matters.

    In my opinion, his punishment is too light.

    What? Howard Sprague from The Andy Griffith Show didn’t make the list?

  • Aly

    I think it’s funny how they listed T-Bag (Prison Break) as a gay/bisexual character, because he really isn’t. Aside from his fixation on calling Michael ‘Pretty’ all the time, he’s just a child molester and sexual predator. And same-sex child molesting isn’t homosexuality at all, a differentiation people seem to have trouble making. Although maybe he could be considered bi, what with his interest in Michael. Who knows.

    Also, I’ve been watching SVU since the first season, and I feel incredibly dumb. Dr. Huang’s gay?

  • Ash

    Aly: Huang’s not gay, the actor who plays him, B.D. Wong, is.
