An Eva Longoria-related story has
gotten Puerto Rico-based Guanabee.com in trouble with the Gay &

certainly entitled to feel offended. How come those words don't

after we last responded to them, probably don't agree with me – and
that's swell! Everyone should have an opinion about everything,
right? So what do you think? Can you relate to us? Maybe you wanna
compare my rants and GLAAD's to the ones of black culture and the "n"
word? It's ridiculously similar! Try it,” he added.
