    Anyone else wonder why there's not really any gay news threads in here but instead it's hijacked by Dems vs Reps and Israel vs Palestine debates?

    There are counter-protests going on against NOM's 'Summer of Marriage' tour where we constantly outnumber those blowhards.

    Other than that most of the gay news is waiting to hear on the votes to repeal DADT, and Judge Walker's decision in the Prop 8 trial (should be out in the next month or two).

    So basically, no gay news to talk about = no gay news form topics.

    You should check out Ben and Dave's 6-packs' podcasts. They have plenty of news on LGBT there, and the hosts are hilarious.

    Wear it anyway! Where is the rip? Model the suit, send us photos - and we'll decide if the suit is still wearable! Seriously, I've stood inches from you - - - I can attest that you are one guy who doesn't need a suit at all. Go without it whenever possible!

    I've heard that a dance floor had to be evacuated, because people were being infected by the sound and the beat was killing them. Does that count?

    Gay news on realjock? ha. It is the usual Israelis vs Palestinians argument and those forum posts show no signs of ending anytime soon.

    It's not possible to "hijack" a thread, much less a whole message board. Anyone can post whatever they want, as much as they want, about whatever topic they want. It's perfectly possible to have both plenty of "gay news" threads as well as plenty of "Dems vs Reps" or "Israel vs Palestine" threads. They aren't mutually exclusive.

    If you feel you're seeing a lot more of the latter than of the former, the reason is simply that the latter are more popular. That's the free market (of ideas) in action.

    Still, let me address your question (in the OP). What you're really asking is: why are the threads in which Republicans argue with Democrats, or Palestinians argue with Israelis, more popular than threads on more gay-specific news topics?

    My answer: because we are all instinctively drawn to conflict. Gay news items are less interesting, hence less popular, because they give us less to argue about.

    Being gay causes stretch marks on the cheeks and neck injuries. Film at 11!
