    Yeah, it's true.
    They had a main character on Warehouse 13 be gay last season, at least.
    Also he was attractive! :D

    Hiya. Like Neville said, Redi and I are mostly twitter folk now. I sometimes post in the pokemon forums if something amazing happens in the anime or a new game comes out. Otherwise, I just visit the forums to read the new comics and see if people are talking about Nads.

    :( Give Nads a hug for me man.

    I will. I know about what he has, and it is super treatable (success rate is like 92%). Getting there will suck a bit, but he's a fighter.

    @Moriveth @Tossrock your questions/comments are similar!

    I don't mind generally, as their job is to act.
    Philip Seymour Hoffman played Truman Capote really well.

    As long as it isn't being done purely to be offensive, then I'm fine with it.
    And even if they are, it takes a lot to genuinely offend me.
    I've lived here for how long? :D

    I'm of the opinion that yeah the president really is all for same-sex marriage, which is great. But yeah it also definitely feels like a card being played since it's close to election time. Which, to be honest, I don't really care because wooohoo fuck you North Carolina!

    So, using the word gay as a pejorative...

    What are your thoughts about that?

    Anyone who does that is a f-g.

    Also: http://www.homorazzi.com/article/fag-gay-usage-homophobic-slur-faggot-queer-homosexual-offensive-words/

    In general, that isn't something I like.
    If it's done by other gays OR people I know who don't mean it offensively, it is okay. I'd prefer they not, but I'm not going to start a thing over it.
    My old roommate Marco used to use it a lot, mostly to tease me. He's an awesome guy and would probably fight someone if need be if they were going to mess with me.

    But people doing it just to be assholes?
    They're using the word to get a reaction; obviously I'm not thrilled about that.
    I do feel it is the same as using the "N word" in the sense that its a word with a very pejorative connotation, so when you use it as such, you obviously want to offend.

    And on this subject, saying "Oh my friends say it etc" is not a valid excuse for using it.
    If you're intelligent enough to discuss the merits and/or drawbacks of it, you are intelligent enough to search your vernacular for another word to use.

    Haha. Well like I said, it's just not the sort of thing people necessarily assume about others.

    I do consider the Oscar Wilde quote a bit of a clue, though. :P Although that's honestly not why I love that quote - it genuinely resonates with me completely regardless of Wilde's.. reputation.

    It turns out nerds have really bad social cues. There are some spectacularly flamboyant yet ENTIRELY heterosexual guys.
    @Rankenphile can back me up on this. One guy in particular. He's a cool guy and is very supportive of gays, but isn't gay.

    Allegedly.

    Okay, I'll give you Children of Earth as that was a step up from season one, and the concept behind the shift to America was interesting but I felt poorly handled.

    I think it was Grey Ghost who put it best; you can't have the monster of the week be an alien that eats sex appear in the second episode of the show.

    TBH I don't watch a lot of "Queer TV" or anything (not sure if that qualifies).
    Well... I DO adore Bravo, so I guess I do, but mostly their food stuff. Housewives of <All Cities> and such is boring to me.
