Gay News; GLAAD wants apology South Park, Portugal gay marriage, Larry Johnson fired

10 11 2009

GLAAD (gays and lesbians against defamation)showed it’s ridiculousness once again by demanding an apology from the creators of South Park for using fag hundreds of times in last weeks episode. The characters in South Park decided to change the meaning of the word fag and use it for instance on bikers instead of gays. South Park is making fun of everything and everyone and so not homophobic it’s just stupid from GLAAD to even bring it up.

Portugal will become another country in Europe that might have gay marriage really soon. One of the first plans of new Prime Minister Jose Socrates’ administration will be to approve marriage equality. Most catholic people and countries in southern europe are definitely a lot more open-minded then most christians in the U.S., that’s for sure.

Kansas Chiefs’ Larry Johnson was fired in the aftermath of him using the slur “faggot” to a couple reporters a while ago, something I blogged about previously. He also denied knowing “faggot” was a bad word, not close to as bad as “nigger”. Fans of the club had demanded his firing by petitions. While Johnson being fired was also due to criticizing team management and their head coach, calling faggot was the last straw. He deserved it!!

Gay news; Larry Johnson, same-sex marriage in Argentina?? Bea Arthur a class-act even after death

30 10 2009

Larry Johnson feels himself man enough to call other people fags but manning up to his 2-week suspension(only 1 week is a real game) he can’t. He is gonna appeal is suspension because he does not think it’s fair. I think it is, mostly because it is a good example being set that even in the NFL talk like that is unacceptable. Johnson’ father is disappointed in his son because of the way blacks in his childhood were being discriminated against. At least one person in that family that gets it. Johnson’s lawyer and agent says he did not even know faggot was an offensive word. Whatever!!

Argentina might become the first latin-american country to legalize gay marriage. In congress there is more and more support to change to laws defining marriage as a union between man and woman. Of course religious groups are already rallying against it but hopefully equality will prevail in Argentina as well. The future dutch queen is from Argentina so dutch queens care about this even more.

Bea Arthur showed what a great spirit she had when it was announced by her estate that she was donating $300.000,00 dollar to the Ali Forney Center in New York. The shelter offers emergency shelter and transitional housing and operates 2 drop-inn centers offering food, clothing, hiv-testing and mental health treatment for LGBT youth. What a great cause!





anti-gay bigot parade, NFL player, Joe the Plumber and more

28 10 2009

Yesterday I watched the fantastic musical Hairspray in the Netherlands. The dutch version really rivals Broadway and was hilarious. Watching this and so rooting for the right thing, aka equality between white and black to happen, it’s very annoying to read the following two examples in the news.

First the african american NFL player Larry Johnson, a running back for the Kansas Chiefs, who told two reporters to get their faggot asses out of the locker room and later directing similar language to a fan on Twitter. He apologized after pressure from the Kansas Chiefs but only to his team and kids that see him as a role model. Not to gays of course. He has been arrested for beating up girlfriends so he was not much of a role model to begin with.

And then an african american woman who goes biblically nuts at the Washington D.C. marriage equality hearing using God, reproduction, calling gays dogs, using the devil, demons and slavery to make her point against gay marriage.

Of course there are also white bigots. Proof yesterday was the interview with Joe Wurzelbacher aka Joe the Plumber. He was at Joy Behar’s show and she did definitely put him in his place, but what an idiot!. He calls homosexuality wrong, does not want his children to be around gays and says basically all pedophiles and that being gay is a lifestyle choice. When Joy asks him why people would wanna be gays if they are chastised by people like him he act like he has nothing against. The guy is stupid, a homophobe and why is the loser even famous?? People should not even interview him anymore
