Gay news, DADT repeal, anti-gay family sues bus-driver, Zuma critiques Malawi sentence, Glee/fag

28 05 2010

First the Senate Armed Forces Committee voted for the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell repeal compromise with 16-12 and then the Senate also voted for it 234-195. Of course it did not go without right-wing last-minute scare tactics about gay rape and HIV transmission in the Army. Fools. European army leaders actually said another advantage about allowing gays in the military is the fact that many (gay) european soldiers had a hard time  accepting DADT in the U.S and that made it harder for them to co-operate with U.S troops. The people of the U.S were in favor of ending DADT 72 % as well. Now it is off for a final vote by Obama and Congress.

An Indiana family is suing a school bus driver after he stopped the bus and berated a girl for her continuous bashing of Obama and gays. The girl told other students they were going to hell if they supported gay marriage. The bus driver called her a little bigot and according to the parents the girl has never recovered from that incident, now 2 years ago. Maybe he should not have called her that, but then again, he was right. The girl’s parents should be ashamed. I have had a bus-driver in the U.S stop the bus because of me and my girlfriends once. We were talking too hard and he wanted us to be quiet. I have never recovered, maybe I should sue as well, haha.

South African president Zuma has strongly critiqued the sentencing of the gay couple in Malawi for 14 years prison and hard labor. In most African countries there are anti-gay laws but in South Africa gays can marry.The special thing about his comment is that it is very rare for african leader to critique one another.

I have never seen an episode of Glee, but I will definitely try to catch up on it when I ‘m back in the U.S or maybe they show it here in the Netherlands. The Madonna episode must have been great( I did see clips of that) and the Lady Gaga one supposedly was also fabulous. The father of a gay kid had a fantastic thing to say about the word fag in that one. So good that kids in middle-america here this.

3 clips of hate against gays, American Evangelicals, Polish priest and Hitler bullshit

27 05 2010

Current TV has made a documentary about American Evangelical leaders going to african countries to stir up hate against gays. One of the reason for the “Kill the Gays-bill” in Uganda.Repulsive.

A polish priest in Krakow has some very harsh words for gays and homosexuality. He hopes they are burned at the stake, like in the good ‘ole days. How priest-like…

American Family ASSociation’s Bryan Fisher says Hitler’s army was full of masculine gay soldiers because only gays could be so savage and vicious to follow his orders. How rude and repulsive to the families of all the gay holocaust victims who certainly were not all effeminate. People like this make me want to be savage and brutal. That is right, don’t fuck with us gays because we have no limits except if it messes up our hair and nails….. . Normally all gays have to be butch and not femmy, now all of a sudden a butch gay is a savage.. Pretty sick fuck that Fisher.





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, Fred Phelps awarded money from Court ,McCain on NSFW website, Michael Lucas wins court case ,English Patient gay

6 04 2010

Unbelievable but true. The family of a dead soldier have to pay the Westboro Baptist Church from Fred Phelps 16500 dollars in lawyer costs. The church protested the funeral of the death straight soldier because “America accepts gays and that is why he deserved to die” Multiple people have come forward to help out the family who wants to take the case to the Supreme Court. The Court decided this way because of freedom of speech. I have a hard time with this, in general I do believe in freedom of speech but in cases like this it is hard to believe in that. Where to draw a line with these things is hard though.

John McCain thought he was all cool by putting a picture on Twitter but he did not know where it would end up. On the nude-website. GuyswithIphones. Very NSFW and pretty funny. Not so much for people wanting to look at hot guys though that all of a sudden see his face.

The porn company of mogul Michael Lucas won a court-case brought up by the copyright holders of the Fellini movie “La Dolce Vita”. Lucas’ porn version of the movie was one of the most expensive in porn history. The judge said the alleged copyright holders could not show that they were indeed the copyright owners and that the Fellini movie could just as well be public domain. I thought 90 % of porn is a parody of a regular movie!

The highly successful oscar-winning movie ” The English Patient,” was based on a spy that was in actually gay. The Hungarian de Almasy was in love with a young nazi soldier called Hans. Letter that surfaced in Germany found this out he also not died of an overdose but of amoebic dysentery in 1951 after never having slept with a woman.





Gay news; homophobic attack in Amsterdam on straight man, Anne Frank diary deemed to filthy for school, Obama keeps disappointing

30 01 2010

A straight older man in Amsterdam who works above the store Gays&Gadgets was standing in font of the store holding a bag from the gay store when 2 younger guys(look Moroccan) started shouting abusive things to the guy and when he walks after them to confront them one of the guys kicks the older guy who kicks back, falls on the floor and the Moroccan guy starts kicking him some more. This was all on camera and that is another sign only cameras at gay hotspots does not help. More police and heavier sentences for the homophobes are the only things that might help.

A revised version of the Diary of Anne Frank called “The Definite Edition” has been pulled by a school system in Virginia. The book that was published on the 50th anniversary of her death in a concentration camp and had according to a parent it had sexually explicit material and homosexual undertones referencing to a passage where Anne has a crush on another girl. Such an important book, one of the most important in the world ever and people complain that their teens read something about a girl-girl crush. Ridiculous.

Obama keeps disappointing the gays by only making promises and not doing anything real. He has promised once more in his State of the Union that Don’t Ask, don’t tell will be repealed, but he did this already before and still nothing has happened on this issue. And during a Town Hall meeting when he was asked about the issue of gay marriage the only thing he came up with was the old and boring gays should be able to go to the hospital when their partner is dying. Dodging the question because he is against it and does not want to upset the gays even more. Especially as a black man he should be in favor of equality.





GLBT News; Fred Phelps hates Lady Gaga, italian gays on hunger strike, View ladies on gays and monogamy

27 01 2010

Lady Gaga can be proud because she is the newest victim of the Westboro’s baptist Church aka the crazy Fred Phelps clan. Daughter Meghan made a parody of Poker Face in which she says Lady Gaygay, God hates Gaga and Gaga has a whorish face.(look it up on youtube, on Meghan Phelps lady Gaga) That coming from a girl with a face only the devil could love is pretty funny. If that church hates you that means you did something good. It is also pretty funny they call it satan’s music while to make this parody they must have listened to it millions of times.

Two Italian gays are on a hunger strike for marriage equality over there. One of them ended up in the hospital after being gay-bashed and they realized that they had no rights if one of them passed away. Back in November they walked into city halls with 23 other couples requesting to get married but were refused. The couple is streaming things live on the web. They have already lost energy to get out of the house and one of them has passed out a few times but they vow not to quit, even if it means death. Pretty brave but also a bit much. There are other ways.

The ladies of the View had a discussion about monogamy in gay relationships and according to Joy Behar the gays she knows were less bothered by infidelity than straight couples. Whoopie said the gays she knows do care about monogamy and even Elisabeth said she though gays care about that. I think it is for every individual different but Joy has a point. Definitely for gays from Joy’s generation cheating does not necessarily mean the end of a relationship. Men can separate sex and love better than women so I think it is a gay thing but only when there are 2 men involved. In a lesbian relationship it is a very different scenario. I also think for younger gay men with the possibility of marriage, civil unions and even having kids the views are more changing to a heterosexual relationship but it is still 2 men. Apparently most straight men cheat as well, they just don’t say it
