Here's what I just saw in my Google search results: "Woman Dies After Being Denied an Abortion by Dan Savage." You're such a dick, Dan!

WTF!? Why is there never any love for BBUK 13 winner Luke Anderson? Transgender man wins a competition of close living quarters and intimate moments. Is there another show that shows the depth of a transgender dude? Luke was very much so a normal dude, he has lots of body issues what with the build cis men around and you know what? People helped him work through it! People, even in anger, didn't attack his transgender status. Maybe it's because he has a cis wife?

You miserable piece of shit. Yes you Dan Savage for posting an article with an embedded video set to automatic play.

With multiple windows open doing many things, including catching up with the Daily Slog, nothing is more annoying to me than trying figure out which god damned window that miserable sound track is coming from.
