On the heels of his Emmy-winning It Gets Better campaign, columnist and provocateur Dan Savage weighs in on such diverse issues as healthcare, gun control, and marriage equality with characteristic straight talk and humor.

Dan Savage has always had a loyal audience, thanks to his syndicated sex-advice column “Savage Love,” but since the incredible global success of his It Gets Better project—his book of the same name was aNew York Times bestseller—his profile has skyrocketed. In addition, he’s written forThe New York Times, Rolling Stone, The Onion, GQ, The Guardian, Salon.com, and countless other widely read publications. Savage is recognized as someone whose opinions about our culture, politics, and society should not only be listened to but taken seriously.

Now, in American Savage, he writes on topics ranging from marriage, parenting, and the gay agenda to the Catholic Church and sex education.

The essence of what I despise the most about Dan Savage is his total support for political correctness while concurrently supporting the American Empire in its global resource theft and murder of millions.
Just as he supported the multi-generational Bush Crime family in their illegal invasion of Iraq, which killed untold numbers, while enriching corrupt American neocons and their faux crat cronies, and displacing huge numbers of their citizenry, leading to further mass refugee movements we observe today!
Just don't like phonies.

An entertaining group of essays and blog posts from sex advice columnist Dan Savege. As usual, Savage is fairly insightful regarding various issues, and not afraid to admit when he is wrong.

Dan Savage is so great -- funny, full of wisdom and yes, religion. He writes about his mom, her faith, his past mistakes, his family, bigots, and of course sex; he weighs in on gun control and Obamacare (the later in the funniest essay I have ever read, driving home the saddest truths in America.)
