I can’t help but think that in some hands, a review of Hugh Jackman’s Broadway show that contains lines like “Let’s face it. Mr. Jackman is, unapologetically and triumphantly, the bi-est guy in town: bicultural, bimorphic, binational, biprofessional and, for entertainment purposes, bisexual” would have been considered offensive.
While promoting Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol, Tom Cruise has confirmed that they are working on a sequel to Top Gun. Please, no. But if it has to be, it has to be a post-DADT military.
Tyler Clementi’s parents spoke to People about the ongoing trial in their son’s death, and getting through the holidays.

Voyager 1 is preparing to leave the solar system for good and become the first man-made object to cross interstellar space.
Rick Perry’s anti-gay campaign video now has more dislike votes that Rebecca Black’s “Friday,” officially making it the most hated video in the history of YouTube. He posted a new video to the channel today, but not only are comments disabled, so is voting it up or down. But you can still report it as hate speech.
I can’t find a way to embed this video from Irish peat manufacturer Bord Na Mona, but you really should go watch it right now. I’ll wait here.
