Did you miss me?

Well I’m back online at home via dial up. It’s not DSL and I am hating it. This phone line is slow as hell.

But the important thing is that I’m back online and just in time for the James Holsinger hearings, too.

My book

In the midst of all of this turmoil, I have been steadily working to publish my book. If all goes well, it should be out in the middle of September.

I am currently working on a press packet and would love to send it out to as many people as possible.

The press packet will contain:

press release,
excerpt from Holy Bullies and Headless Monsters,
a one page outline of anti-gay industry tactics and lies
two flyers,
and an interview with me

If you are interested in receiving this packet in the mail or email, please email me at

I am also working on a list who will receive the galleys of my book.

As you all know, the whole point of my book is not to make money but to arm the lgbt community with information and get the anti-gay industry to explain their tactics, rather than us explaining the validity of our lives for a change.

Retreat from hysteria yields a challenge

From the site my online buddy Joe Brummer, one of Bill O'Reilly's sources for his lesbian gang hysteria has retreated from his claims.

That’s good.

But what is bad is one of the comments he posted on his site reportedly coming from one of us. Allegedly a gay person sent him a nasty email attacking African-Americans on the whole.

The racist diatribe does nothing but play into the "divide and conquer" mentality that the anti-gay industry uses against the black and gay communities.

No matter how the anti-gay industry angers us, we shouldn’t stoop to the level of showing our asses more than our inteligence.

That "ACT-UP" mentality of protesting was useful back in the day, but it's wasn't useful all of the time.

And sometimes, like now, it's rather counterproductive.

This is an intellectual battle so any form of visibility is not necessarily a good thing. Let's practice positive visibility.

So I ask that if you feel the need to write and challenge those who oppose us, speak from your mind and with righteous indignation, but don't let their lies reduce you to their level.

If you feel that you have to call the opposition cheap names, then you really need to examine yourself.

Paul Cameron keeps popping up

Check out this diatribe from World Net Daily:

Even school boards, like that in Montgomery County, Md., are urging young students to accept this deadly habit and plying them with the message that anyone who perceives himself/herself as being of a certain sexual orientation is in fact stuck with that orientation and cannot escape. That's tantamount to a group of educators telling smokers that they were born to smoke, can't quit and shouldn't even try.

Of course, the promulgation of knowledge and data concerning the link between alternative sex and disease is hampered by the bullying tactics of the elite. Thus, only a few facts are known at all to some of the public (such as the results of a study in Scandinavia showing that men in same-sex marriages die 24 years earlier than their counterparts in the general population) . . .

As I am sure that many of you know, that claim about a short gay life span in Scandinavia comes from our pal Paul Cameron. It was his latest set of lies.

Gay blogs from my own to Box Turtle Bulletin beat down this latest lie of Cameron's months ago.

And it was fun.

But like a weed, Cameron's lies continue to come up.

And every time weeds come up, we need to knock them down.
