10 ‘Gaycons’ That Should Go Away for Good


Late, great comedian Rodney Dangerfield was famous for his schtick “Don’t Get No Respect.” The LGBT community sympathizes, old friend – we don’t either, and here are 10 reasons why.

Perez Hilton

His super snarky, eponymous gossip site may pull in nine million visitors a month , but Perez Hilton (AKA Mario Lavandeira) is one nasty homo. For starters, he actively outs closeted celebrities for his own amusement – and he’s proud of it. But that’s not what makes this self-loathing sloth wholly despicable; Hilton is a hypocrite of the highest order. Consider the 2009 confrontation between the blogger and Black Eyed Pea’s member Will.I.Am at Toronto’s Much Music Awards wherein Hilton fired off a double dose of F-bombs, calling the singer “a fucking faggot.” Alas, you know what they say: Takes one to know one.

Dan Choi.

What began as a benign and commendable campaign to shed light on the military’s discriminating “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy has turned the recently discharged activist into a money-grubbing media whore. According to an angry letter addressed to Choi from Nonnie Ouch, president of Texas Tech University’s Gay-Straight Alliance, the former Army lieutenant personally declined a request to speak at the school because it couldn’t cough up enough cash. Choi’s asking price? $10,000. Nobody will deny that the fight for equal rights comes at a cost – but who knew it cost so much? Don’t sweat the snub, Nonnie. Your money’s better spent on a real American hero.
