NOTE FROM WALLACE:
Brian has done a good public service by digging up this downright creepy moral panic video from 1961. This video is wrong on so many levels: conflating “homosexuality” with underage sex, medicalizing same-sex attraction, unnecessary fearmongering…
Ridiculous. Read the full story

Rand Paul has recently denied the legitimacy of laws forbidding discrimination against LGBT employees.
But this is not the only argument he has ever made in this vein. See this transcript of some previously unrevealed comments he made at a college.
OK. Yes, from a purely moral, or dare I say ‘moralistic’ point of view, it wasn’t very pleasant for black people to not be allowed to sit on the front of the bus.
I mean, in fairness, if some people in the USA started banning Jews, Muslims, disabled people, women, or anyone else of that general, y’know, ‘diverse’ type, then I think that would actually be kind of petty and mean-spirited!

Sex is a private matter, except for performance artists employed in the adult entertainment sector, who are generally really nice people.
Except for Diane; she was a real bitch.
Oh, I know Hermana; I hated her too!
But sex is private matter and nobody else’s business. Stupid on the other hand, that is everybody’s business. Glossy News has learned that up in Arkassippi or somewhere, a girl is suing her hillbilly high school because her tuxedo picture didn’t make it into the yearbook. Gringos have been known to do some stupid things, but this just about whacks the piñata. Read the full story
