Correcting the Record

Posted by on Fri, Nov 19, 2010 at 6:50 AM

My husband and I have never had a threeway with a "stranger," Porno Pete. But if you prefer to picture the two of us getting with hot, sweaty, well-hung strangers when you're drafting a post/rubbing one out/living vicariously though us, go for it.

As for my marriage—my monogamish marriage—it's lasted twice as long as Ronald Reagan's first marriage, longer than all but one of Newt Gingrich's three marriages (and soon it will have lasted longer than all three of Newt's marriages), and much, much longer than any one of Rush Limbaugh's four marriages.

So forgive me, Porno Pete, but I kinda maybe think the two of us—me and the husband, still crazy in love after all these years—just might be doing something right.

I for one prefer to not live vicariously through others and simply have real life sex with hot hung studs.

Real sex for real people!!!

Aw, what a great post! I don't know too many married people who'd still be as cute together, and with each other, as you and Terry were in your IGBP video.

Anyone who actually reads what you write knows that you vet your (few) extra-marital sex partners with more consideration than a supreme court justice nominee.

Oh my God, he used 'orgy' as a synonym for 'threeway' in that 'article'. Doesn't an orgy by definition have to include a whole crowd of people? I think his imagination is running away from him, sweatily escalating into a whole new realm of fantasy. Which, unfortunately, he has decided to make public.

@3: He was writing about a conservative campaign in Iowa and got sick. He then, ingeniously/hilariously I might add, decided to lick doorknobs to try to get people helping the campaign sick.

You know the one where Dan is wearing that look of knowing compassion? If I were Porno Pete's editor I'd suggest he find a picture of Dan looking more hateful and radical.

Further proof, as if any were needed, of three things:

1 - Hardline Christian activists use the word "extremist" to describe anybody who won't back down and give up their rights or have the temerity to insist on being treated as citizens in a democracy rather than accepting maltreatment by theocrats.

2 - Hardline Christian activists basically have one mindset for views which disagree with them: shut them down, NOW! it shouldn't be allowed!

3 - Hardline Christian activists spend way, way, way, waaaaaaaay too much time obsessing over gays and gay sex, and talking about gay sex, and insisting that public discourse talk about gay sex so that nobody gets to have or talk about gay sex, and thinking more and more about it and... [rest of post drowned out by Peter LaB's heavy breathing].

I personally love the caption under that sassy "The White Tee Never goes out of style, Bitches" picture of Dan.

It reads: "Queer" sex columnist Dan Savage believes....."

Okay two questions: Why is "Queer" in quotes? Is Dan's sexuality in question? Even though he's been open about his relationship with his husband, adopting a kid with his husband and raising said kid as a family together WITH HIS HUSBAND, it's still not sending off the gay-dar for ol' Porno Pete?

and #2) Are we still using the word "Queer"? It seems much more demeaning than the word (SPOILER ALERT: BAD WORD A'HOY) "Fag" to me.

You're an immature selfish cheating asshole who desecrates marriage every time your foul infected lips croak the word.

Wow, good catch -- I'm amazed you noticed that, and I think you might be right. If you compare them side by side, the color balance of the two photos is definitely different, and Dan's lips look noticeably more . . . rubicund . . . in the Americans for Truth photo (which is on the right). I'm not technologically savvy enough to know whether a color shift like that could occur accidentally, as a result of compressing the file or saving it in a different format or whatever, but I wouldn't be surprised if those whackjobs did it on purpose.

OK, so I've just watched the WTTW interview with Dan -- along with a long suffering friend (thank you!) to help translate. Nicely done!

I thought it was an interesting point, contrasting the importance of the videos done by everyone vs the celebrities and it's really a wonderful reversal in a way -- that the celebrity videos are sort of pointless to the kids because the message is that you'd be accepted if you were rich and famous? But they know the chances are they won't be, so the thousands of videos from people like you and me are much more important. Very, very true.

I wonder if the celeb videos are actually mostly important for straight teens -- they get role models that are acting positively toward LGBT issues. Something to counter the hatefulness that probably many of them get from the people around them in their lives. One can hope.

Given that you did no outreach for celeb videos, it's interesting in a way that they've jumped on the bandwagon anyway. Says something about the psychology of the celeb/audience dynamic.

And, oh yes, I emailed WTTW encouraging them to provide cc/transcripts online :D

I emailed Peter by the way:

This is in regards to your letter on http://americansfortruth.com/news/wttws-….

No news program is obligated to give equal coverage to bigotry. In fact, no news program is obligated to listen to you at all. I know you will neither listen to, nor understand, my words; however, I could not resist pointing out that traditional Christian views on homosexuality are bigotry, they are wrong, and you are scared.

And I'm glad.

I do not expect this email to change your life. I do not expect you to comprehend what I'm saying as anything other than liberal nonsense. But you, and people like you, are directly responsible for the astronomical suicide rate of gay youths. And we will not stand for it. We will not coddle your murderous vitriol with alabaster gloves anymore. We will not tolerate intolerance.

Bigots like you are approaching the minority, whether you realize it or not. And that is thanks in LARGE part to Dan Savage's "It Gets Better" campaign. Because for gay people, it does get better than listening to petty bigoted tyrants like yourself saying that it's wrong to be gay. Sorry to break it to you, but it's not. It is wrong to be a bigot. You may die a very old man without realizing it, but future generations have much to look forward to because of Dan's big heart.

I'd say a prayer for your soul, but I'm not religious. And frankly I'm pretty sure bigots don't have souls anyway.

Truly your antithesis,
Rachel

Unfortunately, they were right about just one thing: the aggressively hateful approach toward religion. As much as American style Christians horrify me, Dan's attacks make me cringe. His approach to anything related to religion often seems uncharacteristically cruel - I recall him repeatedly calling a man a "ridiculous Jewish fuckwit" and openly mocking Jewish customs because the man in question had moved from Reform to Orthodox Judaism, for example. Dan sets himself up for criticism this way. If he is incapable of talking about religion without becoming malicious, he should avoid the subject altogether.

Hooray WTTW! This is so much better than your six days of two hour specials on the history of the National Park system. Stir it up, baby! Chicago Public Broadcasting rocks my socks. Where does Ira Glass broadcast from? Chicago. Where does Wait Wait Don't Tell Me record? Chicago. Whose PBS station has the balls to run an interview with Dan Savage? Chicago's.

Hey Pete, WTTW knows the fundies have nothing worth saying, that's why they didn't bring in a counterpoint. They broadcast, you know, the news and things that matter, not bigoted, incoherent, Bible-banging word diarrhea. When you have an argument that makes any kind of rational, emotional, or even - yes - spiritual sense and you can express it in a graphic design layout that doesn't make me want to scratch my eyes out, get back to us. In the mean time, your opinion doesn't matter, there are more of us than there are of you, and I'm going to encourage every friend I have in Chicago to write in to WTTW thanking them for interviewing Dan and to write to all of their Congressmen to tell them to keep funding Chicago Public Broadcasting.

@73 and 76 Religion is no different than any other topic and holds no special place that requires us to respect it. Religion is no different than politics and just as politicians are fair game for criticism, satire and mockery so are religious leaders and their deities. Our refusal to defer to religion merely because it is religion is our way of taking away your power and neutralizing the power of religion. Expressing our contempt for your religion and your imaginary sky gods does not make us bigots.

Hello, this is an unregistered post from someone who's not Porno Pete.

Porno Pete, you're not fooling anyone, just because you post a million homophobic, idiotic posts under different names doesn't mean WE DON'T ALL KNOW THEY ARE ALL WRITTEN BY YOU.
Go Dan, the religious right has enough of a voice in the USA- they don't need any more air time.

BTW, Keeping slaves, segregated schools, black people at the back of the bus, used to be the norm too- have fun with your bigotry before the US wakes up like the rest of the world has.

Well, gee! No wonder your "marriage" has lasted longer than some other mens, when it isnt a marriage at all, having sex with other people when monogamy bores you, not to mention that people who have such malleable interpretation of monogamy are probably hooking up on the side without telling their partners. Lord knows your definition of honesty is as malleable as your definitions of marriage and monogamy! Indeed like most regressives, your relationship to the truth is downright adversarial when it gets in the way of what you want.

But then again, so does your relationship to the meaning of marriage!

Yes, you are correct, a phony marriage is easier than a real one. Which is why you dont have a real one. All you have proven is that were you held to the same standards of marriage as normal people, you would have failed as miserably, if not more miserably than they. So you bastardize the meaning of the word to mean whatever the hell you want it to mean. -- And then bitch that Americans wont subsidize it!

You are a FANTASTIC and very persuasive argument AGAINST gay marriage. Your standards or I should say lack thereof, were they adopted, would destroy the value the institution provides to society in the first place. Which is to encourage an environment where children are not robbed of having a mother, not robbed of having a father, but are raised by their own committed, monogamous, loving mothers and fathers.

Not an institution to humor gays delusions that sticking your dick up someones rectum is in morally, biologically or in any way equivalent to men and women coming together and creating life.

Be happy, be with whoever you want. Fuck the whole city if you want. But quit pretending its a marriage. But please stop pretending that homosexuality and your "open relationships" are as important or even remotely as consequential to society as real marriage between men and women. And quit pretending that your child wouldnt be better off if his mom hadnt donated him to a delusional couple playing make believe, so they can keep lying to themselves, pretending they are the same as everyone else, when they arent.

Yes, failed marriages are awful. Your promiscuous open relationship is just as failed as Rush Limbaughs -- in fact, more failed, because at least he has the excuse that straight marriage is held to a higher standard. Your standard is apparently whatever you want it to be -- which means you have no standard at all. Thats not a reason to lower the standard, that's just a GREAT reason to reject the gay redefition of what marriage should be!

By the way, is your server on AOL dial-up? You have the slowest website on the internet.
