Inclusion Too Controversial For CBS and NBC

Watch this ad for the United Church of Christ and decide whether you're living in the same universe as executives at CBS and NBC!

"We find it disturbing that the networks in question seem to have no problem exploiting gay persons through mindless comedies or titillating dramas, but when it comes to a church's loving welcome of committed gay couples, that's where they draw the line," says the Rev. Robert Chase, director of the UCC's communication ministry.

. . .

"The consolidation of TV network ownership into the hands of a few executives today puts freedom of speech and freedom of religious expression in jeopardy," says former FCC Commissioner Gloria Tristani, currently managing director of the UCC's Office of Communication. "By refusing to air the United Church of Christ's paid commercial, CBS and NBC are stifling religious expression. They are denying the communities they serve a suitable access to differing ideas and expressions."

Girls Kissing Girls, Boys Kissing Boys

Now not one but two great community sites: I Kiss Girls and its sister (brother?) site I Kiss Boys. (Note to Dustin: Lose the dark background. Bonnie's site is so much more readable.)

meta-creation_date: 09/09/2003

Old news, I know, but I came across Toby's Official Fab Five Fuckability Guide today. Cute, but I still say Ted doesn't get his due. Or maybe it's just that geeky glasses have always been my favorite fashion accessory...

While we're on the subject, if you're not addicted to this show yet, check out Straight Eye for the Queer Shows for all you need to know.
