Gay news, Day against Homophobia/kiss-in/marriage anniv. in Massachusetts, Rekers’ evil past, proud homophobe cut from oil spill team, gay love-story soldier in Iraq

18 05 2010

Yesterday was the international day against homophobia. Around the world activists, groups and others were campaigning for more tolerance. There was a (surprisingly) violent-free demonstration in Kingston, Jamaica and kiss-ins all over the world. It was also the sixth anniversary of gay marriage in Massachusetts. And the world still exists..

The self-hating George Rekers is now just basically known as a joke but he did some pretty evil things in the past. Back in 1974 he already had ex-gay programs in which parents were instructed to “spank away the gay” in their kids. As young as 4 years old the mothers were instructed to look away from the child when it was playing with girly things, until the kid started crying. At home the kids received red chips for feminine behavior and blue chips for masculine. The blue chips meant candy and TV, the red chips meant a spanking. In one instance a kid “manned up” after 2 years and Rekers used this as an example for his theory. At 18 the boy committed suicide…

The Energy Department did not waste any time in dumping Jonathan Katz from the panel to deal with the oil spill. Katz said in an article he is a proud homophobe and blames gay people for the death of other people who contracted AIDS, “they died so the sodomites could feel good about themselves.” Good news, I know his views on homosexuality have nothing to do with the oil spill, but extreme bigots like that do not deserve anything imo.

The brothers Larry and Andy Wachowski, creators of the hit-movie series The Matrix, just finished writing a script about a gay relationship between a U.S soldiers and an Iraqi. Seems very interesting..
