Brilliant. I was considering doing one myself.

Now I’ll just have to do another “Downfall” parody.

Sad thing is that this could be anyone of 100 senators currently in office.

The video doesn’t show up for me as is often the case with videos posted here. Other sites, such as good as you display the video from a source I can see, it’d be nice if you’d use video sources more people can view.

Pryia, it’s a YouTube video. It should work for anyone with flash installed. Have a direct link.

I tend to have more trouble with G-A-Y than with BTB, because he uses a lot of external media and relies on flash a lot. Pam’s House Blend and Slap Upside the Head are the only gay news sites I know which really care about accessibility. Pam and the other bloggers there usually include transcripts for videos, and Mark at Slap always puts proper alt text on his images.

Great video…Just for the record, the past tense of seek is not seeked.

Timothy, I don’t have flash installed and I’m not keen on installing questionable software every time I want to look at some video, so it doesn’t work for me. Other sites have videos like this with no hitches or need to install software so it certainly can be done

Priya Lynn,

I’m not a techie. But I think that Flash is kinda standard (not exactly “questionable”) and yours is the only complaint we’ve gotten about this.

Jim is undoubtably more adept at this sort of thing, but I don’t really want to learn special new techniques for posting video unless it’s really necessary.

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers. This story is a stark reminder that there are severe and damaging consequences when therapists try to ensure that boys will be boys.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.

Testing The Premise: Are Gays A Threat To Our Children?

Anti-gay activists often charge that gay men and women pose a threat to children. In this report, we explore the supposed connection between homosexuality and child sexual abuse, the conclusions reached by the most knowledgeable professionals in the field, and how anti-gay activists continue to ignore their findings. This has tremendous consequences, not just for gay men and women, but more importantly for the safety of all our children.

Straight From The Source: What the “Dutch Study” Really Says About Gay Couples

Anti-gay activists often cite the “Dutch Study” to claim that gay unions last only about 1½ years and that the these men have an average of eight additional partners per year outside of their steady relationship. In this report, we will take you step by step into the study to see whether the claims are true.

The FRC’s Briefs Are Showing

Daniel Fetty Doesn’t Count

Daniel FettyThe FBI’s annual Hate Crime Statistics aren’t as complete as they ought to be, and their report for 2004 was no exception. In fact, their most recent report has quite a few glaring holes. Holes big enough for Daniel Fetty to fall through.
