December 26, 2010

84 year-old Playboy founder Hugh Hefner is marrying Crystal Harris, a 24 year-old playmate. This is Hugh’s 3rd marriage. In other news, gay people are still a threat to the sanctity of this fine forthcoming marriage which will undoubtedly produce two 1/2 kids and a white picket fence and a dog, just as Jesus intended. […]

13 year-old boy, Asher Brown, shoots himself over gay taunting

September 28, 2010

Sad story out of Texas. Here it is from the Boston Edge: http://www.edgeboston.com/index.php?ch=news&sc&sc2&sc3&id=110871 So senseless. And this intrigues me: this intrigues me: “Teaching about sexual orientation is not a part of the District adopted curriculum; rather, such matters are best addressed within individual family homes, churches, or community organizations.” Wrong. They’ll most likely learn nothing […]

Fuck Senate Republicans. In fact, fuck Senate Democrats. NO ONE IN THIS CONGRESS HAS ANY BALLS TO DO WHAT’S FUCKING RIGHT.

Report shows that 25% of LGBT students report harassment on campus

September 15, 2010

A new report, the first of its kind, has been released by Campus Pride, demonstrating that 25% of students from a test group of 100 colleges feel they have been harassed on their college campus. Given the limited size of the pool, I’d be willing to be the numbers are higher. While this is certainly […]

Hawaii’s governor doesn’t get it.

July 7, 2010

Linda Lingle. When asked to explain why she vetoed a bill that would have granted civil unions to same sex couples in the state, she said that it was “same-sex marriage by another name,” and that such a decision should instead be put up to a ballot referendum in November. Yes, she is yet another […]

U.S. Representative Michelle Bachmann tied to band that wants gays executed.

June 11, 2010

The lovely piece of humanity on your left is Minnesota Representative Michelle Bachmann. She’s pretty batty. She’s made quite a few interesting statements over the years, but this one isn’t so much a statement as it is an association. From change.org: “The Minnesota Independent notes that a Christian rock band in Minnesota, which has called […]

Rekers established clinic to psychologically and physically abuse effeminate boys

May 18, 2010

I can’t even type out the details for myself, ladies and gents. Suffice to say, the story of George Alan Rekers gets much, much, MUCH more twisted. I’m going to copy and paste an article from the New Miami Herald in its entirety – they broke the story, and their hard hitting journalism is to […]

Westboro Baptist Church plans to picket Constance McMillen’s graduation

April 29, 2010

Not sure if this even qualifies as news – at least, it’s not surprising, since these pigheads tend to protest just about anybody’s appearance anywhere, whether it deals directly with homosexuality or not. Nevertheless, thought I would post it for your enjoyment (?). In a press release, the church, which is well known for its […]

April 22, 2010

Last Friday, on the Day of Silence, three girls in Lexington, Kentucky kidnapped a lesbian classmate named Cheyenne Williams, took her to a watefall, beat her up, and then attempted to throw her off the falls. She defended herself with a stick. Ahsley N. Sams, 18, of Annville, Corrine M. Schwab, 18, of Sandgap, and a 17 year-old who has […]

Mississippi School Sued For Cancelling Prom Due to Gay Student

March 11, 2010

I’m back! For those wondering, the reason I was in Louisiana was to film a documentary about the loss of their natural wetlands, which in turn is leading to hurricanes in the area being far more destructive, amongst other things, such as an entire culture sinking into the Gulf of Mexico. I’ll be returning in […]
