That's pretty funny.

San Francisco will be saved by illegal immigration yet.

Wait for it.

traditionalguy said...

Minneapolis exceptionalism, I suppose. Was the whole city big a closet until last year?

And here I thought it was the US Navy.

Hey commenters, Do you think althouse would put a question about Gays on her Con Law final?

The beautiful people are obsessed with gays and blacks. Why is that, beautiful people? Of course the question won't be answered because the beautiful people are above answering. They simply set the standard and because it is they who set the standard the standard just is, and that is not only good enough it is AS IT SHOULD BE.

It all started when Graffiti Bridge was replaced by a nondescript modern railway style overpass bridge and all those fun scrawlings were lost forever. The question then became how to replace that lost icon and since there was a growing Muslim culture, as represented by the election of a Muslim Congressperson, there came to be a recognition that Mpls had to swallow hard and become a gay capital, much to the disgust and shame of many of us old timers, who then left in droves, caught between the devil and the deep blue.

It's the big cocks and great blowjobs.

Those 2 Minneapolis cuties looked suspiciously Republican as well, don't you think?

Gay is the new white.

I've never been so proud of my banana bread recipe. (new gay!)

I always had my doubts about Mary Tyler Moore, "living alone" in Minneapolis all those years...

[Mary Tyler Moore] told David Letterman that her nickname for Dick Van Dyke when they did the "The Dick Van Dyke Show" (1961) together was Penis Von Lesbian, a play on his real name.

Beautiful people? You're talking about pimply teenagers and elderly women. They're the type OBSESSED with gays and blacks.

And our popularity does not come from "beautiful people". Other than from natural talents, it was born in rebellion against conservative authority figures.

Try demonizing things without good justification and they just become more popular.

That didn't work well for Sarah Palin.

Revenge for enduring all those cheesehead jokes, AA?

Minneapolis gay is, it seems, the same as Arkansas gay.

to coin a phrase: it's the economy, stupid! once upon a time, a kid could come to san fran with only a few bucks in his pocket, get a decent entry-level job, and find affordable housing in nearly any part of the city. today, available jobs are few even for the most qualified professional and housing costs are astronomically high in even the least desirable parts of town.
most gay folks in the bay area (it's not all about san fran, after all) live just as ordinary lives as the minnesota couple (it's not all 24-hour orgies, darn it), it's just that they have to be able to afford it (which is why the age demographic has skewed toward older gay men). of course there's a reason that it's expensive to live in the bay area: it's a beautiful and exciting place to be. minneapolis and st. louis may have their good points, but they ain't frisco.

Two things tetra:

(1) Sarah Palin is not past tense.

(2) lamprologus brichardi kick tetra's tails.

I'm so fucking tired of everything or anything, gay.

Can we move on.

Wow, it does not even have a port of call for the U.S. Navy.

Arkansas is pretty hardcore, but I don't think getting on with farm animals counts, even if they are gay farm animals.

Sorry that was mean. Sorry Arkansas. I meant that only for Mike Huckabee.

Opps. I did it again.

@Jason (the redundant)

"And our popularity does not come from "beautiful people". Other than from natural talents, it was born in rebellion against conservative authority figures."

No, your gayness comes from a desire to be noticed. Not all gay people are outwardly so; similarly, most heteros don't feel the need to be outwardly hetero. The common denominator is the desire for attention. You, and 4 year-olds everywhere share this attribute.

Gold star for Jason!

"It's the big cocks and great blowjobs."

And the gay bowel syndrome!

Shouting Thomas said...

Agree.

Althouse, please give us a break with the gay shit.

Shouting Thomas said...

Time magazine has an article about how gay man are twice as likely to be diagnosed with cancer as straight men.

Strangely, Time cannot fathom the cause of this strange malady.

Time even speculates that the stress gay men suffer from discrimination might be the cause.

When in doubt, blame hetero white men.

Repetitive anal sex with multiple partners could not possible be the cause of these higher rates of cancer. No, that could not explain this.

Don't Tread 2012 said...

@Shouting

YES.

And the study linking the 'pill' with many unintended consequences/the decline of the nuclear family. Et cetera.

It seems man continues to be his own worst enemy, and is finding ways to be more efficient at it.

Shouting Thomas said...

So, I apologize in advance for beating on this topic.

Those wonderful gay men gave us the AIDS epidemic, which has killed tens of millions of people.

That was so glamorous!

Wherever I go, people want to scream at me about sex abuse and the Catholic Church. The sins of individual priests, for some reason, say something deep and fundamental about Catholicism. That's the liberal line.

But, a global epidemic that killed tens of millions, caused by the behavior of gay men, tells us absolutely nothing about the fundamental nature of gay men, according to these same liberals.

Another reason to be extremely happy to not be living there. Or to go there.
