Gay Rights - LGBT - Same Sex Marriage

Casting call: "STRAIGHTS NEED NOT APPLY" This is where Russell's road takes us. oh. my. god. i'm not surprised that someone around here would boo-hoo-hoo "straight oppression" in the "gay rights" thread, but i didn't think it would be so hilarious here, dude, you forgo...

if you actually cared to address anything i wrote we might come to agreement. but instead ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ i will say that "don't be hasty, don't make demands, don't be too loud, don't be ungrateful for the scraps of respect they throw us, and above all be nice and respectable or else they'll turn on ...

Gay Rights - LGBT - Same Sex Marriage

There are times when I think Russell Davies is a total, complete, and utter ass or prat, if you prefer the Anglicism, I use them at interchangeably at mood, and this is one of those time when I think he totally is. I 'm curious, how does one "act" Gay in the sense referred to here? I'm no...

Gay Rights - LGBT - Same Sex Marriage

So, pick the best actor for your project. If your best actor for a gay role happens to be gay.... bonus! nah, that assumes both a nearly perfect meritocracy and a simple way to determine "the best actor." when in reality, among any group of actors, there's probably more than one that's &q...

Gay Rights - LGBT - Same Sex Marriage

I understand Jonathan Pie's criticism of Russell's comments. Russell used the word 'only'. That very much discounts the talent of many, many great straight actors who have pulled off fabulous performances as a gay character. Likewise, many gay actors can do straight roles incredibly fabuously :P as...

Assault on the United States Capitol

honestly, there was reason enough before all this for biden and harris to have a simple, non-public, televised, swearing-in with their immediate families. it would have sufficed and demonstrated their committment to fighting the pandemic. now there's even more reason, only poorer optics.

I mean, it's not as if there isn't a precedent for some massive overlap between latent (or not-so-latent) homosexuality and right-wing politics.

Don't know what the solutions are, but we're going to need to deal with this issue sooner than later. in any country that wasn't a gerontocracy deeply damaged by private money, institutional inertia, and retrictions on voting rights, such an individual would've either chosen to retire by now or bee...

Both points are valid. But consensus has it that there's a correlation between the deterioration of rock and the increased emphasis of production values over rock 'n roll's rawness and spontaneity. i mean, there really isn't such a consensus? just as single example, fleetwood mac, one of the most &...
