  •  Please, still gloat! (none)
    People like this make the lives of many (not just gays) a living hell. I have no problem gloating.
    •  I agree (none)
      No problem with gloating.. just with lame jokes about some prison rape scenario making him "someone's bitch" though he would like it kinda shit.

      cheers,

      •  I feel the same way (none)
        That's long been a problem on DKos (and in everyday life), but I haven't seen that type of humor in this thread. I hope the jokes I've made haven't come across that way.
        •  Not at all (none)
          Making jokes about his hypocrisy and even lewd jokes about the sex aspect of it is something I even giggle about. It is the idea that prison rape is funny, or that men in the receptive role in male/male sex are "bitches" is where I say, time-out, step back, and realize that isn't nor should it be funny.

          Bad puns, and even jokes of a sexual innuendo nature are not offensive to me, and if it's a good zinger, worth a laugh myself.

          As I said, prison rape, and men who have sex with men being "bitches" is where it suddenly and seriously stops being funny.

          cheers,

      •  prison joke? (none)
        dude....don't exaggerate
        •  Prison joke about male rape (none)
          Not funny.

          So would it be funny if a woman was arrested for prostitution (or anything for that matter) and sent to prison so she could be raped?

          There is nothing funny about it and I sincerely suggest you step back and take a look at it.

          cheers,

          •  I don't know (none)
            It may not be humor, but to take an individual who is in a position of power- especially a position he arrived at while lying, and to put HIM into a position where he is at an ultimate loss of power can be cathartic.  

            I would never wish that sort of thing on anybody, but it is much different than the scenario you are describing in comparison.  Women, especially prostitutes, are never in a position of power.  

          •  can you explain, please (none)
            I'm trying to understand.  The prison-rape jokes have been so commonplace here, before and throughout all the Fitzmas indictments stuff, and they continue anytime a mention is made of prison sentences - several came up in the Abramoff scandal discussions.  I've never found them funny, but at this point I've tuned them out.  Why is this suddenly different?

            Is it because the man in question is actually gay?  Or at least - soliciting gay sex?  

            If so, I can understand where you're coming from.  But please don't criticize posters for continuing in the same theme of humor - tasteless as it may be - that has already been going on for a long time.

          •  wasn't suggesting rape (none)
            but I see your point

            and...where's the pizza?

          •  Once More on the "Bitch" Question (none)
            I thought about this above, and seeing the issue come up again, I guess I have to ask.

            Is it also problematic when a buddy of mine (a militant leftist, by the way) telling me about some guy who has got him worked up, purrs (yes, that's the verb): "Oh I just want to worship him; I want to be his bitch."

            Should I not be laughing?  In doing so, am I perpetuating something problematic?

            Or is this an example of him (re-)claiming language?

            On another note: I have trouble rejoicing about this guy, even the hypocrisy exposed.  I so much want to believe that gay men and our society in general are moving beyond this kind of repression.  I look forward to the day when no one is as confused (I mean, fucked up) as this guy must be about sexuality.  

          •  Mitch ........I thought you went out (none)
            to get the pizza.
