Throwing Shade #71: Dragon Age & British Porn


This week, Bryan explains the LGBT-friendly game Dragon Age: Inquisition, displaying his vast knowledge of the Qunari. Then, it's off to Merry Olde London Towne, where Erin castigates the Brits for trying to censor depictions of women's pleasure in porn. Chim chim not cool. Plus, Bryan and Erin reveal that their bodies dispense fresh fruits and vegetables and high-pressure water jets. Our bodies, ourselves!

Throwing Shade #70: Pregnant Women & PDA


Erin and Bryan went to Miami this week, but Erin, a.k.a. “The Deadliest Catch,” stayed a few extra hours and became the living embodiment of a club called “Shotz.” Also, UPS fired a woman for being pregnant, and a Baptist preacher has found the cure for AIDS--genocide!

Throwing Shade #69: Barbie & Gay Video Games


On this week’s Throwing Shade, Bryan and Erin do all the latest technologies! Bryan tries to figure out what Google Play is and why it removed a game where you hunt gay men. And Erin talks about how Barbie wanted to be a computer programmer but couldn’t figure out the buttons because she was too female. Plus, Bryan has to visit Meryl Streep before he can use an ATM!

Throwing Shade #68: Thanksgiving & the Duggars


It’s Thanksgiving, y’all! As we gather ‘round the turkey to sing the traditional carols of this special day, Erin’s thankful that she’s not being interviewed by CNN anchor Don Lemon, who victim-blamed one of Bill Cosby’s accusers, and Bryan’s thankful that he’s not spending Thanksgiving with the anti-gay, pro-constantly-giving-birth Duggars of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting. Plus, everyone around the world is thankful for Michelle Duggar’s bangs. They’re a Thanksgiving miracle!

Throwing Shade #67: Dumb & Dumber & Fox News


This week, Bryan’s back from Texas with great news--Obama’s finally admitted to being Muslim, and gay men can donate blood (if they don’t have gay sex)! Get along little dogies! Plus, Erin tells us about her secret life as a cheese thief and calls out Old Navy for charging women, but not men, extra for plus-size jeans, which is a plus-size outrage!

Throwing Shade #66: Gay Starbucks & Anti-Rape Face


Articulate your face, girl! This week, Erin covers the anti-rape face meme spawned by one college’s drug and alcohol counselor who should totally keep her job. And Bryan brings us the story of a New York pastor who’s trying to have it all--all the nut job homophobic conspiracy theories, at least. (Speaking of nut jobs, he thinks there’s semen in Starbucks drinks!) Plus, we’re doing farmer’s markets, hormonal cycles, Tina Turner, and condragulations to Loretta Lynn, the next attorney general of these United States!

Throwing Shade #65: Tim Cook & The Straight Out Report


Here’s your post-election pick-me-up! Return to the blissful ignorance of before Republicans took control of the Senate, as Bryan and Erin discuss how Tim Cook’s coming-out spelled disaster for an iPhone-shaped memorial to Steve Jobs in Russia. Plus, the co-hosts of "The Straight Out Report" on Logo (Friday nights at 10pm) swing by to play a game of Celebrity Net Worth!

Throwing Shade #64: Halloween & Gone Girl


Happy Halloqueen! This year, Erin and Bryan are giving you three looks - classic Halloween realness, True Detective realness and Gone Girl realness. But that's not nearly as spooky as how the Vatican feels about female bishops or how Republican Congressman from Texas Louie Gohmert feels about gays. Spooky!

Throwing Shade #63: The Biggest Loser & Pink-Washing

| 1 comment

If you've ever wanted to see a wig with teeth, you've come to the right place. In addition to showing off toothy hair extensions, Erin tackles the ridiculous things people sell in the name of breast cancer, and Bryan looks at fitness guru's Jillian Michaels' recent comments that she sometimes wishes she wasn't gay. Also, do you buy your jewelry at the grocery store?

Throwing Shade #62: Heat Waves and Masturbating Tattoos


Shade? Yes, please! Because heat wave! Erin went to the pool to cool off (legs in the pool, honey) and saw some sweet man-nips and a super-classy masturbation tattoo. And in this week’s ‘ssues, Bryan pulls the linen pants off romance author Nicholas Sparks and exposes his lily white private school for white kids. Plus, instead of spending money on healthcare, Alabama’s hiring lawyers to represent fetuses. Bryan’s solution: steak au poivre!
