    Good to see that hateful Janice Daniels has upgraded her hairstyle from the “Inga Swenson” to the “Debra Jo Rupp.” A bit more age and decade-appropriate.

    What has Anna Wintour ever done for gay rights? She is a member of the fashion industry, an industry that objectifies women in order to appeal to sexist and homophobic men. Giving her an award is like giving an award to Hugh Hefner.

    As for Ryan Murphy, the least said about him, the better. A complete and utter waste of space.

  • David

    Janice Daniels is the mayor of Troy, MI, not Troy, NY. Just thought i’d throw that up there.
