This Week's Quote

A mother and a little boy were walking along, and I could tell the minute the recognition hit the little boy. As he walked by holding his mother's hand, he said in a real loud voice, "Look, Mother. There goes an old Gomer Pyle."

Dr. Melvyn

A Toronto psychiatrist who specializes in gay conversion therapy has been found guilty of sexually abusing two of his male patients. Dr. Melvyn Iscove was described by the committee that decided his case as having a "special interest in the treatment of patients with problems related to homosexuality."

In other words, Step into my parlor said the self-loathing spider to the anguished flies . . .

An Imam in Uzbekistan recently claimed that if you fantasize about strangers during sex you will have a homosexual baby.

Rahmatulloh Saifutdinov preached that some Uzbek women are fantasizing about "handsome Turkish soap opera actors" while having sex with their husbands, which could lead to the woman becoming pregnant with a gay baby boy.

Men, he added, "are not allowed to imagine another beautiful woman when they are having sexual intercourse with their wives, because this may lead to the birth of a lesbian child."

If people believe him, there'll be nobody having sex in Uzbekistan anymore.  Except the gays.

This Week's Quote

In fact, of the nine best picture nominees only two made more than $100 million. But that's not the point. We don't make films like "Call Me by Your Name" for money. We make them to upset Mike Pence.

Response to Roy

Roy Moore is asking people to send him money.  The peerless homophobe faces big legal fees as a result of a lawsuit brought by the woman who says he molested her when she was 14 and he was 32.

I've responded to Moore's request.  At this very moment my thoughts and prayers are winging their way to Alabama.

America's Guardians

President Trump says he would've rushed into a Florida high school to save the students and teachers from a gunman with an assault weapon, so I say we take him up on that. He should resign the presidency, pick a school and stand outside it.

And Vice President Pence should do the same with a gay bar.

Olympian Achievements

The Winter Olympics concluded yesterday, and I know some Americans are upset that the U.S. brought home the fewest medals in 20 years.

Personally, I'm still reveling in the great moments. That women's hockey final was one of the most dramatic games I've seen in any sport. And because I come from an area that produces many winter athletes, I was thrilled to see American women take cross-country gold for the first time, even as I know much of America thinks cross country is only slightly more exciting than ironing.

But the best part of the Games for me was the clear presence of gay Americans. Openly gay Olympians Adam Rippon and Gus Kenworthy both criticized our vice president for his homophobia. Rippon was honest and sassy in interviews; Kenworthy kissed his boyfriend on live TV, and the world saw it.

And then there was Johnny Weir, the figure skater turned commentator, whose dramatic outfits, make-up, ever-changing hairstyles and snark earned him a gold medal in meeting and surpassing a gay stereotype. His in-your-face fabulousness must've worked for NBC, since they assigned him not just the skating but the closing ceremonies as well.

The Pyeongchang Games are over, but the Rippon/Kenworthy/Weir effect will ripple on. Just ask Mike Pence.

Florida Fear

I just read how survivors of the Pulse nightclub massacre met with survivors of the Parkland high school shooting.

I'm not one to get nostalgic for the good old days, but there's no denying that when people used to speak of being united by terror in Florida they meant hurtling down Space Mountain with a friend.
