A queer appointed to head the AIDS Committee?

Makes perfect sense to me!

According to the article, AAC has never before been led by an HIV+ person. This is tough to believe. I can understand back in the 80's and 90's, when HIV+ meant you were probably going to die in 6-24 months. It's been two decades, however, since HIV+ became a chronic treatable condition. I think it's good to have HIV+ people leading the way.

You're mixed up again, Cletus. I'm not the feces-, man on man sex-obsessed poster here.

Praise!

There's your sexual obsession again.

No, "Cletus" is a term for uneducated, bigoted, usually southern morons. The sort of people who have no place any longer in educated society, and who cannot begin to fathom what misogyny is, nor deal with their obvious sexual conflicts.

I wouldn't consort with a Cletus, obviously.

HOMOsexuals want the word HOMOsexual banned, then why do HOMOsexuals refer to anyone not cheering their lifestyle as HOMOphobes ?

Those are different words, Jedediah.

Would you prefer "evilgelicals" or "talibangelicals"? We're willing to be flexible with you buybull babbling, sexually sick mouthbreaters.

This is easy to understand. Sciortino abandoned his constituents because the job pays in excess of $200,000.
Massachusetts State reps are paid about $60,000

Thanks for that observation. And what motivated that interjection? Do you plan to lobby for higher pay for Massachusetts' legislature?

You're welcome. They are overpaid now.
