'Have I been a lesbian? No, I don't think it's something you do as a hobby. ... There have been a few gay men that I've been in love with and let me tell you, if they ever, EVER [change sides], I'll be there.'
— Actress Pam Grier, who stars in Showtime's new lesbian series The L Word, to Los Angeles' Lesbian News, January issue.
'I'm not gay. I'd like to clear that fact up right now.' — Cleveland Indians minor leaguer Kazuhito Tadano, apologizing for performing in a gay-porn video in 2001 in Japan, to reporters, Jan. 27.

'Maybe he needs a new version of the Ten Commandments—George W. Bush's Ten Commandments: Thou shalt not steal ... votes. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's ... country. Thou shalt not kill ... for oil. Thou shalt not take grammar in vain. I mean, whatever fucking happened to separation of church and state? I mean, you can't, like, impose your god on my god. God has many names. God is God, God is Jehovah, God is Allah, God is Buddha, God is Beyonce. ... And George W. Bush is coming out with the weirdest stance on same-sex marriage as well. What he says about it is, 'Well, we're all sinners.' No we're not! Just because somebody ate an apple one time does not make us all sinners. And if it was from the tree of knowledge, I think she should have eaten more than one. Possibly even baked a pie. I don't understand the whole same-sex marriage thing. He was quoted by saying, 'Well, you just gotta take the speck out of your own eye before you take the cock out of your neighbor's.'' — Comedian Margaret Cho at a Jan. 13 MoveOn.org event in New York City, according to the Drudge Report.
