Someone with a wry sense of humor--and an impressive knowledge of body building regimens--has started a twitter account called @PaulRyansBicep. And reading the tweets is a pretty good workout. Among the best mini-missives from Ryan's non-bipartisan, non-bisexual bicep:
And you thought Mitt Romney saying that windows on planes should be openable was the dumbest remark of the year! Well, here comes Staten Island Borough President James Molinaro demonizing Lady Gaga as some kind of Reefer Madness-style villain because she was photographed smoking a joint in Amsterda ... More >>
Hallelujah. Whoopee. Don't even tell me how, as long as it happened for sure. No, wait, let's find out what's behind this supposed nail in the coffin of Romney's flip flopping, vague, slippery, but otherwise FABULOUS campaign. Using the above headline, here's what Josh Barro wrote on bloomberg.com ... More >>
Says The Bay Area Reporter: "A showdown over whether San Francisco should ban public nudity is looming as the issue again rears its head." Oh, no. They went with "rears its head." "This time," continues the author, "the tipping point may be de to naked men wearing cock rings." Oh, no, they said ... More >>
President Obama's speech was strong and confident, not only in the digs at Romney (who's still convinced Russia is our number one enemy, zanily enough), but in its nods to LGBT people, who are usually invisible when it comes to vote-for-me orations. Obama noted that gays aren't responsible for our ... More >>
The fair and balanced channel just polled a random sampling of voters, and the results seem fair and balanced! In fact, Obama got 49% of the votes, as opposed to only 40% for Mitt Romney. This is the President's biggest lead over Romney since the latter became his opponent, and it's easy to see wh ... More >>
After a two-year review, the Boy Scouts have decided to reinforce their ban on gays (out gays, that is). It took them two years to look through the evidence and consider all the protests and confirm their own hideous bias by saying,"Yep, still hate gays."
Wait, that sounds a little dirty. How about "Some rich gays are pulling out..."? Nah, that sounds suggestive too. Well, however you phrase it, this is serious stuff. See, Obama's had a pretty good record with regard to LGBT decision making (though he's still "evolving" about same-sex marriage--U ... More >>
Thanks to reporter Rex Wockner for the lineup. And by the way I'm leaving out all the "man on dog" stuff because they've gotten enough airplay. Give some other hate bites a chance! * A napkin is not a paper towel, metaphysically.
I didn't choose it, though I do remember a pubescent period where I felt it could probably have gone either way. But after gamely trying to get turned on by photos of women (even women who looked a bit like guys), I realized I could just as easily pretend to be the Queen of Roumania. I was defini ... More >>
'Blade' file photo by Michael KeyYou did so when you were on the way up. Well, now that you're as high in the power ladder as a person can get and you can really make a difference, especially as the matter is being debated in the New York state legislature as we speak, your finally taking a ...

Said he about our troops: "Starting this year, no American will be forbidden from serving the country they love because of who they love. And with that change, I call on all our college campuses to open their doors to our military recruiters and ROTC. It is time to leave behind the divisiv ... More >>
Workers who receive Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) today learned that they can buy Aetna health insurance for their pets if they so desire. But if the employees are LGBT, of course, they still can't buy insurance for their partners, thanks to the lingering Defense of Marriage Act!
"And the administration of our 'fierce advocate' Barack Obama defends the law and loses. "Is anyone noticing a pattern here? "It is an echo of when, in 2009, the Obama administration in court defended the Defense of Marriage Act, signed by President Clinton, as a protection against incest. ... More >>

Watchdog reporter Rex Wockner knows, and he's put it all down in one handy list for future husbears and bear-ents: "Same-sex marriage is legal in Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Iceland, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Mexico City, Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts ...

Charlie Sheen's household brawl wasn't the only horrifying occurrence crawling through the chimney on Christmas day this year. As gay watchdog Rex Wockner alerts me, a 25-year-old man named Michael J. Griffin went to visit a 53-year-old Indiana University assistant professor named Don Belton ... More >>
I never thought I'd agree with the conservative advocacy group the Log Cabin Republicans, always assuming that "gay Republican" was as much of an oxymoron as "casino culture." But they've hit the gay nail on the head by chiding Obama for his latest attempt to placate the LGBT community with his re ... More >>
Sometimes such dizzying things happen in the media that I am too stunned to type them in and share them with you kids. Thank Goddess for Rex Wockner, the gay blogger who does a column called "Quote, Unquote," reminding us of that month's queer-related utterances from notables and blabbermouths. It ... More >>
The AP wire service was recently dropped by some papers because they can't afford it anymore, the stories are already posted on the AP site, and besides, they obviously leave shit out! As my friend, the gay watchdog Rex Wockner, points out, the AP obit for acerbic fashion critic Mr. Blackwell curiou ... More >>
