Gay news,GLAAD/the View,GOP Nevada candidate extreme homophobe, evil gay angels, Canadian landlord refuses gays

26 06 2010

GLAAD wants an apology from the View and ABC for lies they spread during an interview. Sherri Shephard and DL Hughley talked about the increase in HIV diagnosis in the african American Community and blamed it mostly on men on the down- low( gay men that are married/have girlfriends and also have unprotected sex with men. Even though this phenomenon exist, the center for disease control(CDC) has debunked it as a myth. Dumb Sherri Shephard does not know shit, talk like this is dangerous. For a change I agree with GLAAD.

The candidate for the Nevada Senate on the Republican side is Tea Party favorite Sharon Angle. The woman is tied to an independent party in the 90’s calling gays sodomites, child molesters, brazen pervert and disease-carrying freaks. Yep, that is someone you want in charge of a state.

A priest in the Dominican Republic wants to tear down the church’s artwork because the angels look gay and evil. The mural was made 12 years ago but according to priest Johnny Duran the church congregation cannot tell if the angels are male or female and they look diabolic. WTF??

In Canada a man has refused a gay couple as tenants because if he would agree, he would be going to hell. The man said he first thought nothing of the 2 men but after hearing from one of their sisters, who also lived in the building, that they were gay he revoked their lease. He says it is a crime against nature and is worried for the sister from the gay man and her son. They are devastated about the men not being able to live close to them . According to the landlord though God is more important than not discriminating. He might not go to hell but should go to a nuthouse.





Gay news, McDonald’s COO bigot, Sesame’s Bert comes out(sort of), heavier penalties on gay hate in Amsterdam, more anti-gay violence in Canada

16 06 2010

The french McDonald’s ad that was so cute and nice about gays has sparkled a lot of media attention. The Chief Operating Officer of McDonald’s USA, the african american Donald Thompson, says such commercials will never run in the US. Why??Because the U.S is a christian county and he himself a good christian man who has his own beliefs in that regard. Aka bigot.

Bert from Sesame Street said on his Twitter that he has the same hair as mr T, except his is a little more (ho)mo and a little less hawk. I dunno if this account was hacked or not, silly but pretty funny anyway.. They are either gay or non-sexual, Bert and Ernie. But no kid cares!! Surprised the right-wing has not attacked them the same way as one of the Teletubbies.

The justice department of Amsterdam is gonna punish anti-gay violence with an extra 50 % on top of the standard law. Anti-gay violence in Amsterdam is on the rise and police wants to use camera’s and fake-gays(police men(out of uniform) walking hand in hand) to find gay bashers. Great ideas!

Just like in Amsterdam, also in Canada anti-gay hate has increased significantly. In 2007 there were 71 incidents and in 2008 double as many. Later probably even more but those date have not been released yet. Gay organizations say this is only 25% of the real numbers because many men do not go to the police after anti-gay crime out of shame. Not surprised, have blogged about a lot of hate in Canada in the last year. Shame of such a great country.





Gay news, Soccer world cup star on gay rumors, new movie about fag hag, dutch evangelical TV boss wants gay job, gay-bashing in Vancouver

15 06 2010

Freddie Ljungberg is the impossibly handsome world cup soccer star of Sweden. He is also a model for Calvin Klein. When asked about the gay rumors that have haunted him for years he says the following.” I don’t mind it at all, I am proud of it. I think gay people have amazing style so it is a compliment for me. Could any straight man give a better answer??

Jesse Archer has a new movie out in which he stars and also wrote part of the screenplay. It looks really good and is the follow-up of the equally great a Four Letter Word. It is about the oldest living fag-hag. I love the line: “Do you want my 8 inches??” ” What, are you gonna fuck me twice?”

Bert Dorenbos, former boss of Evangelical Broadcasting in the Netherlands, sent his resume to the COC(the biggest dutch gay organization) Not because he is so open-minded, but to protest a new law that would make it illegal for christian schools to NOT hire a gay teacher that is qualified for a job. Of course there is a huge difference between hiring a homophobe at a gay organization and hiring a gay christian teacher at a christian school. But I say hire him and let host leather parties or clean the darkrooms.

A gay couple in normally gay-friendly Vancouver saw 2 thugs peeing against their house last saturday night and when they confronted the men and asked them to leave they were given 5 punches to the head, called names and bitten like a dog.  Both men had to go to the hospital and have terrible scars. Hope the police catches those monsters.





Gay news, IBM most gay friendly, dad does not want kids of gays at school son, couple in BC, Can shuts down B&B because they do not wanna serve gays

11 06 2010

IBM is the most gay-friendly company in the world. This was made public at the international LGBT business conference in Amsterdam this week. Google and British Telecom are 2 and 3. IBM has worked on diversity for over 100 years, being the first to hire women and people of color. World-wide they have 400.000 employees. Keep it going!!

Archdiocese of Boston’s Pilot newspaper columnist Michael Pakuluk does not want his 6-year-old son to be in the same class as a gay couple’s kid because there is a real danger that kid would bring (or refer )to something obscene or pornographic to school as that goes along with the gay lifestyle. Is he for real?? How insulting to gay parents.

An elderly couple in British Columbia, Canada has decided to close their Bed&Breakfast rather than face additional charges of discriminating against gay customers. They say they have been harassed so bad just for “being themselves. The couple denied a gay couple staying with them because that was against their religious beliefs. According to their lawyer they are a lovely couple that do not want to be seen as discriminating, but they are christians staying true to their beliefs. Nasty bitter old bigots, is more like it.





Gay news, gay couple holds kiss-in at restaurant, Mark Kirk outed, first gay marriage Portugal, nude transgenders in Delaware

7 06 2010

A gay couple from Chicago were discriminated at restaurant La Fiesta Azteca last month for holding hands and kissing a few times. The owner asked them to leave citing his religious beliefs and the fact the restaurant was family friendly. They did not wanna pay because they did not finish their food but the owner demanded their money. Yesterday 100 people had a kiss-in at the restaurant to protest this. While I think it is not necessary to be super affectionate in a family restaurant for anyone,gay or straight this had solely to do with the fact these man were gay and then it is something to protest against indeed.

Mike Rogers is an outing blogger that has a 100% success rate in his outings so far. This time he is going after Mark Kirk, an Illinois Republican. Kirk has voted numerous times against gay right and denied he is gay himself, saying people only think so because he got divorced. No mr Kirk, people think so because a purse falls out of your mouth every time you open it and because 2 men have claimed to have had sex with you and Rogers met you and saw you interact with gay men on a specific way. Even though I could not understand a life in the closet I think it is fine as long as you are not a closeted homophobe.

Today the first gay marriage in Portugal was sealed. Two divorced women in their 30’s that have been together since 2003 tied the knot in Lisbon. As a result of a decision in April by the president and parliament Portugal follows the Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Sweden, Spain, South Africa and Canada in making same-sex marriages legal. And lives have not changed that much in those countries since.

At Rehoboth Beach in Delaware several transgender women in the process of becoming full women removed their tops while sunbathing. After complaints patrol came and asked them to cover up and after first refusing eventually they agreed, but they were pissed.Women are not allowed to show their breast which I think is stupid but that is the rule. So the transgenders should follow suit and act like ladies and cover up. I mean you wanna become a woman or not??





Gay news, DADT-deal, celebrities (Gaga and Jason Mraz)gay witch-hunt in Kenya

25 05 2010

Yesterday the White House and top Democrats made a deal for the repeal of DADT. It is still a little hush-hush and vaguely termed but the overall picture is that soon the congress will be able to vote on repealing the ban on gays in the military(votes in favor or against are too close to call). The change though will not happen until dec 1 and the president would also be required to certify it does not harm military readiness. I first have to see it before I believe it, but it is a step in the right direction. Good day for gays AND for the military.

Lady Gaga loves the fact that people think she has a penis because that makes it even more special that people come to see her and don;t care what she is. Gay culture is at the very essence of who she is and she will fight for the gay community until she dies, Gaga says. Straight singer Jason Mraz explains one of the reasons he is such an ally to the LGBT community. He was beaten up and called a faggot at school himself and when one of his friends came out at the same time he realized how brave that is. Love artists that are so open and honest.

Kenya police had to protect 3 gay men who were about to be lynched by their fellow villagers. People from the village were trying to open the door of the house the gays were living and cops were just in time. A month ago people from Mnarani had sent a petition to the government for the removal of the gays. Poor guys…

A gay man who was beating up terribly in Ontario, Canada last summer has pleaded guilty to assault for doing something back!! The thugs shouted faggot and threw bricks at the gays and after on of the gay men pulled one thug of his friend’s back, he kicked him. He has no money to defend himself in court and just pleaded guilty.He only got a conditional discharge that will disappear as a criminal record in a year but still… How wrong is this??!!





Gay news, outrage Malawi sentence(Madonna/White House, Aussi news(Gay MP and football, gays in military does work, Backstreet boys at gay pride SF

21 05 2010

It seems that everyone is upset with the sentence of the Malawian gay couple yesterday. They got 14 years in jail and hard labour for being in love. First our minister for foreign affairs, christian democrat Maxime Verhagen called it terrible and says Malawi does not get any money from the Netherlands.He also calls for EU sanctions against Malawi. Madonna who is building a school there  also says she is shocked and saddened and thinks Malawi took a giant step backwards. The White House send out a statement strongly condemning it.

An Australian Labor MP(strong family values!) has resigned yesterday after being filmed leaving a gay sex sauna and club. He even used the ministerial car to go there. He is married with 2 children. Why are it always the “family values” guys.

Australian footballer leagues Jason Akermanis had the message for gay players to stay in the closet. He told in a column in the Herald Tribune that AFL footy is not ready for it. Using the showering together as the biggest reason while saying he is not homophobic. Why always she showering. Guys look at each other’s cocks anyway, gay or not. And what man does not look at a women’s tits?? Is that such a big deal?? His own club as well as others have distanced themselves from his comments as have other athletes.

Gays in the military are a non-issue in the Netherlands, Israel, England, Canada and Australia, officers of those countries have told at a DADT hearing. There are even benefits like better retention of qualified soldiers. Gays often do not have children and that is the main reason for many soldiers to leave the army in their 20’s/30’s.

And some light news to end this post. The Backstreet Boys will be performing at this year’s Gay pride in SF on june 27. They must be the most popular male band ever in the world to have performed at Pride. I have never been a fan at all, but good for them.





Sports, Jankovic wins Indian Wells, Kramer World Champion speed skating

22 03 2010

Not Kim Clijsters, Maria Sharapova or Justine Henin won the crown at the big tournament in Indian Wells the last fortnight, but surprisingly it was Jelena Jankovic. She beat Caroline Wozniacki in the finale with 6-4 6-2. It was the first big win of Jankovic in ages and I am happy for her, always liked her. Sharapova is injured and Clijsters and Henin desperately need more match rhythm, that combined with the absence of the Williams’ sisters makes this not so likely to be repeated by Jankovic in Miami this week.

At the last tournament on the speed skating calendar in a sold out stadium in Heerenveen, the Netherlands(the only place to get a full stadium in a tournament after the Olympics) Sven Kramer became World Champion Allround. This is a two-day tournament over 4 distances. Jonathan Kuck from the U.S was the big surprise at number 2, number 3 was Havard Bokko. With the ladies Martina Sablikova from the Czech Republic was the best, before Canada’s Kristina Groves and dutch Ireen Wust was number 3.





Olympics unfortunately over

1 03 2010

It were overall mediocre games with extreme sad lows like the death of the Georgian Luger, the death of Joanne Rochette’s mom and the at times very bad circumstances(trouble with the ice at the speed skating, conditions on the ski slopes) and highs with dutch golden medals, extremely tight/nerve-wracking races and Canada winning a record amount of golden medals. The overall medal count and deciding who the winner is, proves to be difficult. What is more important, the amount of medals overall or the most gold??. My bf and I decided to be fair, the gold was 5 points, silver 3 and bronze 1. That makes Canada the winner, before the U.S and Germany in third.  Norway is a strong number 4 and then there is a big gap. Holland is in 10th, pretty good. My personal highlight were the gold of Mark Tuitert, Ireen Wust and the great performances of the German biathlon girls. Biggest disappointment the disqualification of Sven Kramer at the 10k and the miscommunications at the team relay that cost a sure gold.





Olympics last 2 days, Gold and Bronze for Holland, Raney anti-hero team U.S

28 02 2010

Friday Nicolien Sauerbreij won the first medal ever for the Netherlands at a snow event and it was Gold. She won the ladies snowboarding!! She has been good for 8 years but never made it to the top when it mattered most, except friday. And boy did she rip up the competition. That coming from a country without snowboard slopes is amazing. Well done!!

Friday and saturday the speed skating was all about the relays and exciting it sure was. I wish I would have been the coach for the U.S and dutch teams though, than the medals would have been different. The dutch men started according to plan but at the semi-finals the team of the U.S beat the dutch team very unexpectedly. Hedrick, Hansen and Kuck were ok, but the dutch team had a total miscommunication that cost them around 4!! seconds and the normally easy win. Kramer, Tuitert and Blokhuijsen took revenge with an olympic record and by far the quickest time the day after to win bronze, but it should have been gold. That is the thing that makes the team relay so exciting though, lots of surprises. U.S, in my opinion, made a mistake in the final by not letting Marsicano skate, who has more speed than longer distance skater Huck, but they did anyway and lost to a great Canadian team.

The ladies of the Netherlands had bad luck in the draw by having to skate against the German girl in the first round. If the draw on thursday would have gone different and the would have had the place of Japan, then the final should have been reached fairly comfortably. That did not happen though and Holland lost against Germany. They should have changed Groenewold ,who has been in terrible shape the whole year, for Voorhuis though and they still would have beaten Germany. The next day they did just that and with Ireen Wust and Diane Valkenburg they were 1.5 seconds faster than the German team and also almost 1.5 seconds faster than the day before. Grrrr. The U.S beat Canada very surprisingly in the quarter finals, biggest upset of the day. In the semis the U.S with Rodriguez, Swider Peltz Jr and Jileanne Rookard almost beat Germany with Beckert, Friesinger -Postma and Anschutz Thoms. Friesinger is a middle distance skater and could not keep up 100% with the end shot of stayers Beckert and Anschutz and she almost fell once and then when nearing the finish she did fall and swam across the finish to just beat the U.S and reach the finals. Germany barely beat Japan with Kodaira, Tabata and Hozumi(who all 3 did great) in the final and the U.S lost a sure bronze against Poland(with a very mediocre team) due to Catherine Raney Norman who replaced Swider Peltz Jr. that race. Last week she was annoyed by having to skate the 1500m and preferred to watch the ice hockey of the U.S instead and now she could not keep up with the other 2 U.S girls and single-handedly lost the medal for team USA. What a loser she is.
