Tom Swift's Lies About the Gay Community

Andy Birkey took the unhinged Tom Swift aka Swiftee up on his challenge.

Tom Swift of the blog "Pair 'o Dice" or "Restraininorder" not sure which, has spent a considerable amount of time over the past few years making untruthful assertions about LGBT people, particularly gay men. I wrote that he makes such assertions which he disputes: "Listen sport, if you're going to call *me* a liar, you had better be prepared to back it up.
