  1. Re Super High drug use in Gay community in U.K.
    Absolutely not my experience – in my area anyway. Scotland – mainly Glasgow.
    Is this really true???

    Jos — Thanks for another excellent post. :)

  2. I’ve done drugs quite a couple of times now, mostly with a few mates at a house party. Not on a regular base though.
    And just one of my mates is gay though.

  3. This is stupid, they did the survey at a pride FESTIVAL. This would be the equivalent of going to Glastonbury, doing a survey and then declaring that 90% of under 25s do drugs.

    1. That’s right, how do you get a representative sample of gay people for a survey?

      On the other hand, it is easy to imagine that people who are unconventional in their sex lives are unconventional in other ways.

  4. “U.S. pundit says civil rights are for ‘blacks, not women, gays & homeless’ …
    Coulter, who describes herself as ‘the Judy Garland of the right wing’, has a large gay Republican following.”

    Wow. Talk about being a really stupid blond bimbo and proving it. And she has the nerve to insult even Judy Garland? Over The Rainbow, she isn’t. And her “gay following?” Talk about being doubly stupid — Republican and a “fan” of her? Poor idiots.

    Josh, you should, by now, know better than to post anything by this completely stupid idiot. She’s on the same level as Sarah Palin, and in the past, Anita Bryant. Come to think of it, Palin may actually just be one notch “more intelligent” than this idiot. Once an idiot, brought up as an idiot, always an idiot.

    1. Gay republican followin? I heard that republicans are anointed by Gawd. How can they be gay?

  5. Ann Coulter said that as soon as they find the Gay gene ,guess who the liberal yuppies are gonna start aborting. I would think that is something to think about.

    1. That is one pathetic excuse to outlaw abortions. First, if a gene is found, that [abortion] would be a rare situation — most women would never consider that because it’s so damn stupid. Second, there should be no reason to stop a woman from doing anything she desires to her body — that’s government extremism, period.

      You continually say anything stupid just for the purpose of advancing equally stupid religious “ideals.” When are you going to start using your own mind and not some religious corporation’s ideals? (And all religions are actually corporations.)


    2. Michael:

      Ann Coulter said that as soon as they find the Gay gene ,guess who the liberal yuppies are gonna start aborting. I would think that is something to think about.

      She is not the first to say something like that, is she? I remember reading elsewhere comments to the effect that liberal intellectuals might be outwardly tolerant of homosexuality but would recoil in horror at the thought that one of their children might be gay.

    3. Which shows no real knowledge of genetics as the ‘gay gene’ sequence will no doubt cover a variety of traits. More likely Ann will start supporting abortion when that day comes and conservatives will produce further and more retarded babies having removed said gene.

  6. If you feel [Penboy] that a women should be able to do what ever she wants with her body, then the next time a young women is found with and over dose of drugs, or she just happen to cut her wrist because she felt there was nothing to live for then there is no need to wast peoples time trying to save her. She has the right to do what ever she want’s with her body. So in your words there is no reason to try to save her,as per Penboy.

  7. I myself do not believe in abortion, unless in the case of rape, or the life of the mother. I have always thought that. I guess you would call me a middle of the road guy. I don’t believe in having abortions because the couple wher too lazy to use birth control. There is a point that you can go to far with this thing. Now they want parcel birth abortion. Maybe when the baby comes out of the uterus and the mother doesn’t like the looks of it, will just dump it in the trash can.

    1. “Now they want [parcel] birth abortion.”

      Who’s delivering? FedEx, UPS or Postal Service? You do know they want more for Priority and Express, don’t you?

      “Maybe when the baby comes out of the uterus and the mother doesn’t like the looks of it, will just dump it in the trash can.”

      Only if there’s not enough bubble wrap and foam peanuts to protect it.

  8. No shit the drugs don’t work. Think. If the drugs worked on the first dose, the companies would only ever make one batch and they would lose money as it would either be a prohibitively expensive pill and they would lose their customer after one purchase.

    Giving over medicine to capitalism was the most retarded idea ever.
