> I like Stafford shirts from Penney’s. Who sells something similar?

LL Bean.

So far, they’ve stayed out of politics.

No, they all belong on an Isle, isolated from everyone until they all die of GRIDS.

That 4% of the population does have a lot of purchasing power. Given the nature of their “lifestyle” you sure have lots of money to spend when you do not have kids to clothe, feed, etc.

Gays would probably rather die than be seen in J.C. Penney. Gays don't shop where Joe Six-Pack shops.

Nope, just a very influential 4%.

One has to wonder what that percentage is in DC. I suspect it is nearer ten to fifteen. How otherwise could they wield so much power.

OK I've been spanked about SYTYCD. One thing though, weren't the tabloiods all atwitter about one of the male judges flirting with one of the male dancers?

Thanks for bringing up Glee. I've heard some gay activists bragging that they finally got "their" program.

Do you remember the cancellation of Ellen Degeneres when she first came out? I think they had a false start on her next show until the latest one stuck, or was rammed down out throats.

retailers are testing ways to cozy up to a community that by one estimate is as many as 16 million strong and has almost double the disposable income of the average American

No other oppressed minority has ever had it so good.

Money is more powerful than population numbers. That is the essence of lobbying.

They are using the same tactics as the anti smoking lobby. They nibble away and are satisfied with nothing they get. They alway want more.

Remember when it started all they wanted was their own non smoking section in a public place? How on earth did that evolve into smoking is a crime even in your own home? I see the same parallels with the ultra-arbitrary application of "hate crimes" against anybody that doesn't see eye to eye with the gay agenda.
