So I’m back from meeting up with all the big gay bloggers in
San Francisco. I had a great trip, and will get something together for you
about that shortly. First I have to clear it with the cabal, since I’m now part
of evil Gay, Inc. according to Twitter.
But for now, on to the things you tuned in for. Since it’s Glee
Day, let’s start there. First, do we have an earth shattering Klaine spoiler? And what about Karofsky? And which Gleek needs a psychiatrist? All of them? Plus, which Gleek had a
turn on Blind Date before he was famous?
If any other celebrity had tweeted a picture of something
that could be a joke, or could be NSFW peen,
I’d be certain that it was a joke. But when it’s James Franco, it could be peen as part of some art piece. But I
still say it’s his finger.

Bret Easton Ellis,
the king of excess and exploitation, gives his opinion on Charlie

The BBC managed an apology for Hugh
Grant’s rugby comments over the weekend. Well, it was one of those “sorry
for any offence” apologies, but made
classier by how they spelled “offence.”
Having just returned from a conference about bullying, this report out of southern California is fairly sickening,
and not only are the teachers complicit in the bullying, sometimes they’re
active participants. One lesbian student alleges a teacher wrote an “S” on her
hand for “Sinner.”
Meanwhile, in Ohio we have a
report of a suicide by a 13-year-old boy who was bullied and

Detailed research proves that Batman went to Yale. Because curing cancer wasn’t

manipulative head of this group of

skewed sense of goodness, Darlene is a good Christian woman who goes to church
regularly, knows her Scripture, and has no compunctions about breaking a few
Commandments here and there.”

‘Uh, I play your nephew!’ I liked him instantly.”
Over at Blabbeando, Andres

real world we live in. And it’s OK to be out. I do think it is. I do think it’s
acceptable for people to be who they are. I am a huge advocate of that. In that
sense, that’s the only way we can truly love ourselves, it’s by accepting who
we are and letting everybody know who we are.”
