Love Me, Mommy


"Cake or Death?" writes about the narcissistic personality disorder and hypersensitivity that than run riot at groups like GLAAD and the ACLU.  Money quote:

"No longer are we looking for mere acceptance. You not only have to tolerate us, but you must like us, love us, watch us do what we do, praise us, and generally fellate our egos until we've had enough and decide to roll over to go to sleep. If you don't? You're a bigot."

Reading this along with Robbie's piece about the gay media makes me wonder more than ever if our "community" will ever have its priorities right.  I suppose if you want more nuanced coverage of figures like Samuel Alito, you'll have to get it from blogs.

Log Cabin Invades GLAAD

Giuliano Malbug_13

GLAAD has hired a (*GASP*) Republican as its new President.  Neil Giuliano, a "progressive Republican" and former (nonpartisan) mayor of Tempe, Ariz., takes over the helm from Joan Garry on Sept. 1.

Despite reelection in 2000 with 70 percent of the vote, Giuliano survived a recall effort by an anti-gay group (an election that was held on Sept. 11, 2001 -- a seminal day for another mayor who is almost a namesake.)

The move is a good one, and a sign that GLAAD, unlike some organizations, knows how to play the Washington game.
