"The 'truth' is that AIDS is an 'elective' disease.
It STOPS the day guys quit sticking it to each other.
And for the tragedy of women and children infected...
THAT stops the day their gay husbands and fathers stop cheating on them.
Anyone need MORE education, science or funding to understand THAT?"

-- Conservative cartoonist Joe King responding on Facebook to Andy Towle's discovery that Amazon and Barnes and Noble are selling copies of King's new calendar "I'm Not Gay, I'm Just a Sissy: 12 Months of Sexual Confusion." Critics argue that the toons are homophobic, but no one has actually seen a copy of the wall calendar yet. While I was willing to wait until seeing the calendar before rushing to judgement, this gives me the ability to say that King is an ignorant asshole at the very least.
