"Let's Have a Gay Old Time!"

Hoo-we! Hell hath no fury like a he/she scorned... The telephone tree of tantrums is lit up like a Las Vegas marquee for "Boy-Lesque" today with hate mail, threats of boycott and even the risk of Jesus spitting on me for my "Sissy" calendar. I SAID I WAS A SISSY UP FRONT. Ironic who the real bullies are isn't it? Let's see if I get a call from Oprah's people or even Anderson Cooper...

Like most bullies bluffs, the facts outweigh the fists: with almost 100 hissy- fits being thrown today only a couple of my calendars are in actual circulation. All the hysteria is coming from those nice folks who haven't bothered to actually purchase and read my collection. Stranger still - these are REPRINTS of nationally distributed work several years old. No outcry then. Even funnier, reprint rights were obtained by "Q" one year- Utah's largest gay paper. GUESS WHAT THE "Q" STANDS FOR?
Let's see how far the truth gets before being bullied to death...

The "truth" is that AIDS is an "elective" disease.
It STOPS the day guys quit sticking it to each other.
And for the tragedy of women and children infected...
THAT stops the day their gay husbands and fathers stop cheating on them.
Anyone need MORE education, science or funding to understand THAT?

The gays are using some online blog to muster enuff negative comments to have my calendar pulled.
One of the weirder points of contention is an editorial cartoon from 2005 when the marketing motto that year was "WE ALL HAVE AIDS".
Apparently being gay involves some type of selective memory as well.
Well talk about cramming something down our throats...
I didn't invent it, I didn't market it. I just collected my commentaries over the past decade into a single collection.
Think I struck a nerve... or a blow?

They really don't like my self-caricature either...
I think I look hot.

The real joke is that the editor I worked under for 6 years was a lesbian. She thot they were funny enuff to publish.
Some of the bloggers said they would forgive me if I was funny.

Like I said, one of the cartoons was bought by Utah's largest gay paper - they thot it was funny.
Maybe it's a generational thing?
Today's gay blogger have no knowledge of their own culture or history and this retrospective collection has really knocked them off their perch (Bird Cage reference they won't get either!)

Bottom line: Andy has a hard on for me.

Anyway, thank you Andy for the best promotion all year!

Aint the first time I've been banned - won't be the last.
I was born with a loud mouth and an itchy shirt,
bury me next to the Baptist.

You know, I don't hate or dislike gays . . . JUST the organizations and sites like towleroad or GLAD. I'm not surprised at the dishonesty on said website.
