If I'd seen something like this when I was younger, it might not have been so scary to open that closet door.

Thanks for putting this together.

"A buttload of videos" was a STUPID choice of phrase, and diminishes those who demonstrated for this past week.
It's hard enough to activate demonstrators without some BULLSH*T 6th grader level dumb joke.

Are you KIDDING me right now, mark?! I don't even know what you mean by this? There is no real joke or anything -- it's just a way of saying that there are a bunch of videos. No more, no less. A light tone is what we use around here, pal.

Oh, and you say "those who demonstrated for this past week," as if there is distance between this site and those people. The writer who is speaking to you now not only demonstrated twice this week for hours on end, but also (a) dedicated ten hours a day to this fight (as I have for the past four years), and (b) taped a show for the Logo network to discuss the year in queer politics. I do as much or more for the LGBT fight than anyone on the landscape! I'm sorry you, for some unknown and strange reason, find the term "buttload of videos" offensive -- but I refuse to have you paint this site and this writer as counterproductive in any way!

What is offensive about buttload? It's just a lighter way of saying "a lot."

I, for one, thank you for ur hardwork, JH.

If you say you meant no offense by the term buttload, I'll take your word for it. I merely came here at someone's suggestion from Pam's House Blend to see the videos.
btw...we aren't P-A-L-S.

"I merely came here at someone's suggestion from Pam's House Blend to see the videos."

But see, that's the thing -- you didn't JUST merely come here. You came here and were offensive. You, in the most reactionary of forms, actually accused this site of DIMINISHING the protests. And because of a benign term?! As I sat here on a Sunday afternoon dutifully posting videos, your unfounded words came across as quite offensive.

So all I ask, pal or no, is that you take a breath before attacking your own. Some of us are doing a buttload of work for the equality cause.

No I came here and was OFFENDED, and said why.

* lights a FAG, ACTS UP and leaves in my light loafers.*

acting as if you can't fathom how buttload might be read as offensive is disengenious, and you KNOW IT!

You're young and maybe that explains why you think being mildly amusing will change a G*D DAMN thing politically.
it won't
it won't when an entire town of folks say NOTHING as your home has hateful grafitti scrawled across it.

it won't when you 24 yo lover dies in your arms of heart failure due to AIDS (in a motel you took him to visit his family), and a half hour after he died a motel manager screams they have to rip out the carpet, and wallpaper cuz an AIDS death occured.
it won't when three young men chase you with 4 inch diameter clubs made from branches

You know nothing about me, mark. And I'm not going to sit here and compare hard luck stories with you.

You have for some bizarre reason insisted on making an enemy out of someone who would want only to be your friend. That being the case, I have nothing more to say to you. Please, if you are so offended by what I do here, then leave.

Hey! great video...

you should upload it here, this is a great place to post videos and you can actually get something in return!

http://www.mavric.tv .

It has over a dozen channels and currently about 300 videos, and growing! If you upload just 5 videos you get an entry to win a lottery for a brand new Seagate Free Agent GO drive, beats buying it for $199 US. Other things you can win are a Lottery for any product on Logitech.com ($200 US value), a $50 Itunes gift card or even 1 year of mavric media digital content database premium account for free (normally costs $1100 US). More entries, more chances.

Not only that, when you're a member, invite 10 friends in your network, get them to upload 2 or more videos and you get a FREE $50 Itunes card!

You should try it out :)
