Friend or foe.

FRIEND THE ACADEMY OF MOTION PICTURE ARTS AND SCIENCES, for hiring Ellen DeGeneres to host the 2007 Oscars. For those who think coming out will ruin your career, read this and weep.

FOE CHRISTIAN TELEVISION NETWORK, which launched Pure Passion, an "ex-gay" TV show reportedly hosted by a former prostitute and self-confessed thief. God knows what will be behind that curtain.

FOE California's GOV. ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER, who refused to sign a bill passed by state lawmakers that would have prohibited public textbooks from denigrating LGBT people. Hakes you wish he'd tire of acting on the political stage and proceed with Terminator 4.

FOE GEORGE W. BUSH, who has ordered potentially thousands of discharged marines back into active duty, while the number of willing, talented service members discharged under "don't ask, don't tell" skyrockets. Fine, go fight your own freaking war; we'll party.
