    The Breaking News section of DP has apparently become the place to go to find out what people like to do with their genitals.

    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.

    Isn't the "hero" in the shield similar to the "hero" in breaking bad or the sopranos...ie a villain who happens to be the main focus.

The rookie was gay and very much still in the closet, but the show's hero found out and threatened to expose him for being gay and destroy his career if he didn't retract his story. This is the show's hero, mind you.
    yep. if you would have told me in 2004 that we would progress this far on the issue in 10 years, i wouldn't have believed you.

    Funny how she hasn't been in much lately and she suddenly decided to call a big press conference and come out.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Real progress will be when people saying they are gay gets a shoulder shrug instead of being posted in breaking news.

    Eh, not really, though keep in mind I'm only on season 1, so maybe that'll change. So far Vick's character, at worst, can be described as an anti-hero. He's a dirty cop and smacks around people as a first resort, but otherwise his motives are pure, really does want to clean the streets of crime and has the backs of his fellow cops who trust him wholly. Well, except for that poor bastard he blackmailed, of course. And even then they're spinning Vick's character to somehow be sympathetic.

    Is it somehow noteworthy that someone in Hollywood has strolled out of the closet? I think that sort of thing actually enhances your stature nowadays.

    I'd say we're not altogether far from that.

    misunderstanding of homosexuality was at a peak, but the cars kicked ass.

    luckily, both situations are currently improving.
