Politician tries to woo voters with anti-gay comic

Today's stories that have queer people talking

Brent Rinehart wants to be elected Oklahoma County Commissioner so badly, he’s wooing his more inbred voters with a misspelled, crudely-drawn homophobic comic book (PDF). It’s proof that George W Bush has lowered the bar for US politicians so far down, only slugs can pass under it.

Gay actors are urged to stay in the closet because of a belief that the public won’t accept them in straight romantic roles. Well, Neil Patrick Harris just got an Emmy nomination for his role as a womanizing jerk on “How I Met Your Mother” and just hit number one on the iTunes charts with his starring role in “Buffy” creator Joss Whedon’s hilarious internet-only musical “Dr Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog.”  We completely buy his love song to the girl in the laundromat but Captain Hammer? Totally gay.

Zac Efron has been hitting the gym, resulting in a disturbing look that’s one part girly-boy, two parts wrestler. A little green paint and you’ve got She-Hulk.
