Ted Strickland still silent on pedophilia

The morning host on Cleveland’s blowtorch talk radio station WTAM, Bob Frantz, wants to know where Ted Strickland stands on pedophilia. Tom Blumer at BizzyBlog has been agitating for a straight answer from Strickland too, as has NixGuy.
Maybe Mike Trivisonno will ask Ted about it on the air during the “non-debate debate” this afternoon at 3 PM. I sure hope so.

Update: BizzyBlog helpfully provides an index as a jumping-off point for all of his Strickland posts. Helpfully enough, NixGuy has done the same.

More evidence of Spongebob’s manliness

Long ago, I gathered evidence proving that Spongebob Squarepants is an indisputably heterosexual stud among studs. Well, more proof keeps bubbling to the surface. Steve Price caught this rare photograph and e-mailed it to me the other day:

Spongebob rocks out

Anybody who jams with AC/DC is chock full of testosterone!

2010 census should ask for sexual orientation

I’m curious to find out just how many gays and lesbians there really are in America. The gay rights movement often touts the 10% number (or more), and their opposition claims that the number’s closer to 2% (or less). I know it takes time to get the federal government to do anything, so why not start a discussion on using the nonpartisan U.S. Census Bureau to directly ask the question in 2010? I suggest something like:

“How many people in this household
consider themselves to be gay, lesbian,
bisexual, transgendered, or queer?”

We’ll be much better equipped to make sound public policy if we know how large this segment of the population truly is. We’d also have better figures on their household income, childlessness, and other important statistics. It can’t hurt.
What do you think?

Turnabout offends prickly homosexuals

College Republicans at the University of Central Oklahoma plan on celebrating a Straight Pride Week:

“The general gist is that if you are a straight student on campus be proud, be loud, this is your time to shine,” said college Republican Kyle Houts.
The group has posted fliers on campus that read, “we’re here, we’re conservative, we’re out.”
Members of the Gay Alliance for Tolerance and Equality say they consider the College Republican’s celebration an attack on gay and lesbian students.
“What is there to say about it, ‘I’m proud, and I’m straight and I guess white,’ I don’t know?” said GATE member Jennifer Rodriguez. “I think they definitely are being discriminatory because there’s probably a lot of gay Republicans out there.”

How very intolerant and non-diverse of you, Ms. Rodriguez.

UPDATE: BuckeyePundit mirrors my own sentiments nicely, and The Open End calls for College Republicans at Ohio State to follow the Oklahoma group’s example.
