Gay news; Sven Kramer pro-gay, Chad Hedrick at Pat Robertson’s showShocker,not!!! Roy Asburn, Sean Hayes come out of the closet, Johnny Weir denied skating in Stars on Ice, school bans prom because of lesbian

12 03 2010

I was sick for a few days so did not blog about these things so some of it might be old news for you guys.

Two speed skaters showed two different sides of the gay spectrum this week. Dutch Sven Kramer spoke out in defense of his teammate lesbian Ireen Wust and said being gay was normal and does not define who a person is at all. American Chad Hedrick was at evil anti-gay Pat Robertson’s 700 club yesterday. Yuck!!!

Roy Ashburn, state senator from California, came out of the closet this week after being arrested outside of a gay club. Something I talked about last week. He admitted to being gay and told he had a lot of trouble with admitting that. He also said he will continue to vote against gay rights and only does that because the people in his district want him too. What a self-hating idiot.

Sean Hayes, aka Jack McFarland, came out of the closet officially this weekend as well to Advocate magazine. He is also kinda pissed for the Advocate pressuring him in the past to come out because he said he was never in. He also thinks he has done enough for the gay community anyway by playing the flamboyant Jack. I understand what he says but also do not understand why he did not officially come out before and all of a sudden now he does.

Johnny Weir was deemed not family friendly enough aka, too gay for the sponsors of Stars on Ice. Ridiculous for someone who is putting his brother through college and supports his family financially because his dad has disability. He obviously is very close with his family, so this reason is ridiculous.

A high school in Fulton, Mississippi cancelled the school prom because lesbian student Constance McMillan was gonna bring her girlfriend. They first tried to ban her from bringing her girlfriend or wear a tuxedo and after they figured out they did not have the right for that, they just banned the whole prom. Making the girl the scapegoat for other students. Very evil.

Gay news; Alabama prom discrimination, R.I gays not allowed to bury each other, men attempt to burn gay flag

12 11 2009

A lesbian teen wanted to take her girlfriend to her school’s prom. She had personally raised over $200 and even created the theme for the year. Tharptown High School refused to let her bring her date to the prom and after several organizations demanded she as allowed to attend the school decided to cancel the prom all together. Making the girl the scapegoat. What a bunch of bigot assholes.

Rhode Island Governor Don Carcieri vetoes a new law that would allow same-sex couples to make burial decisions for each other. According to him that is a disturbing erosion of the principles surrounding traditional marriage. So even when dead as a gay men you deserve no basic rights according to that asshole.

In Memphis 2 men were arrested after they attempted to set fire on a rainbow flag at the Memphis Gay and Lesbian Community Center. The arrest was not after a fight with the police though and one of the men had to be punched and pepper-sprayed. It’s the second act of vandalism on the center. In september a billboard featuring a gay marine as destroyed on Nation Coming Out day. The crime inspired hundreds to rally in response.

 





Gay News, elections gone sour, homophobe soccer player fired, teacher suspended after teaching class about homosexuality in animal kingdom

4 11 2009

Except for a few highlights, a lesbian woman won the race for mayor of Houston, Texas and the passing of the anti-discrimination law against LGBT people in Kalamazoo for gays yesterday’s election was a big disappointment. The biggest one in Maine where marriage equality was voted against with a 5.4% margin. I was really hoping that a blue state like Maine on the east coast would vote in favor of equality but apparently the majority of U.S. people just don’t think gays deserve equal rights. Other disappointments were the election of homophobe Ken Cuccinelli as attorney general of Virginia, a man who called homosexual acts unhealthy and wrong and the win of anti-gay New Jersey senator Chris Christie. Shame on you voters!!

In Denmark they show how you treat homophobes. FC Midtjylland fired its star goalie Arek Onyszko after his book called “Fucking Polack” was released. In that book the polish(surprise, surprise) player says he hates gays, thinks they are disgusting and likened them to vomit. The man assaulted his ex-wife before and went to prison for it. So his comments that his catholic beliefs prohibit him from accepting gays flies out of the window with that. I think religion also does not favor beating up your wife. Like many christians all over the world he uses religion just as he pleases.

A teacher at Southwestern High School in Piasa, Illinois has been suspended for assigning his class an article about homosexuality in the animal kingdom. According to the school it wasn’t age appropriate for high school(yeah right) The teacher ,who is straight by the way with kids, even gave the free option for kids to use the article or not. During his hearing this week many people showed up to support him and eventually the school “only” gave him a warning. It’s a known fact that there is homosexuality and even transsexuality(with shrimp to mate) in the animal life. Why is that too much for 12-16 year old kids to read or know.

 

 





GLBT NEWS over the world; lesbian in tux can’t get into year book, intersexed people in Aus. registered as sex-offenders to get meds, in Uganda gays get death penalty?

17 10 2009

A lesbian high school student is banned from her yearbook because she wore a tuxedo. The school in Wesson, Mississippi told Ceare┬áSturgis that her attire was inappropriate for her gender. The girl never wears girls clothes and felt horrible in a dress so she just decided to dress the way she is. In previous yearbooks of the school there had been cross-dressing by straight students and that was deemed fine, but a lesbian in a tux is just too much for them. ACLU has decided to take on the girl’s case against the school.

In Australia intersexed people have to join a sex offender list to get the medication they need. The health care policy only gives an anti-androgen medication to sex offenders and people with prostate cancer. Female-identified transsexuals that try the meds to suppress their male hormones have to join the list as well. What a ridiculous rule, as if those people don’t have a hard time enough on itself without being on a sex-offender list.

In Uganda a politician has proposed legislation that would make homosexuality on offense punishable by death. It’s already illegal in Uganda but this politician thinks harder laws need to be made. The bill does not only outlaw gay sex but also criminalize all advocacy of gay rights and family and friends of gays and lesbians that don’t report their loved ones to authorities should be punished as well. Sounds like Nazi Germany.

Signs that the times are changing in the U.S. – Half of the College Football players says they have a gay team mate and Republican, hunting simpleton Levi Johnston is fine with being a gay pin-up boy.

A Minnesota school district has to pay a family $25.000 over anti-gay harassment. Teachers at a high school there said about one boy that his “fence swings both ways” Another teacher said he had “a thing for older men”. Poor kid, those teachers should be fired. I think a lot of gay kids have stories about things at school. I once had a gym teacher say he could never be friends with a gay guy, prompting my mom to write a letter to school. The principal did nothing with it and years later I saw the same principal at a gay bar(while he was married with kids) I told him then that he should really change something now. Don’t know if he ever did or not.

A Utah paper refuses to run a gay couple’s wedding announcement. First the Spectrum said they could run an ad but only without a picture. After the couple protested the paper did not wanna run anything at all. The couple was married in San Francisco when it was still legal there and wanted to have a reception in Utah this month.





Sweet!!

90 year old American Eleanor Benz got her high school diploma this week! During the great depression in the 30’s Eleanor was in her final year of school when per parents had to pull her out to help them. One of her daughters asked her what her biggest disappointment from the era, she said it was not getting her diploma. Her children contacted the school and they gave her a diploma and yearbook!! It;s unclear if she will go to university now with her high school diploma in her pocket, haha!!
