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, St. Eustatius wants no gay marriage just dutch millions, to be gay= death ok in Wyoming, Arabic gay magazine shocks Morocco

22 04 2010

St. Eustatius is since 2006 a “special county” of the Netherlands. The Caribbean Island does want to get the advantages of that with money(millions) etc, but does not want certain dutch laws to be applied there. So no euthanasia, abortion or gay marriage. Now they wanna go to the UN to make sure they do not have to follow the dutch rules. I say, let them take care of themselves.

Casper, Wyoming homeowner Chris Turnbull has an anti-gay Leviticus sign on his fence that reads, To Be Gay = Death. Hundreds of students have to walk past this sign every day ¬†and officials asked him to remove it but he does not have to because it’s freedom of speech. According to him he does not do it out of spite. Yeah right.

A gay magazine called Mithly, meaning gay or like me, was secretly printed in the capital of Morocco, Rabat earlier this month. It is coming out on the internet as well as paper so it can be read by as many people as possible. Conservative Islamic people in parliament are already asking for arrest of the producers. According to them they should be treated the same as terrorists. I think it is great and very brave people started this magazine.
