Around The Blogosphere 14 June 2010

There's been a lot of gay community news lately ::: here in the Capital Region people are buzzing about the prom and the parade (see grabs below from the Albany Times Union)... Half a world away Xiaxue blogs about SEX CONVERSION THERAPY ::: "Most of us are born straight so I guess we can never understand how it's like to be gay. So ok, maybe some of you are too young, some too old, so maybe it is alright for some straight people to believe that gay people CHOOSE to be that way."

  2. I agree, Janice! And I must say, you are a very good blogger as well. MM is really intense into politics. As you may have experienced, it's not always easy to find a niche for a blog (and an audience to go along with it!) Thanks for your comment!

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
