Gay news, 14-year-old gay basher caught, GOP Montana thinks gays are criminal, Supreme Court rules pro-gay again, anti-gay Tariq Ramadan sues Rotterdam

29 06 2010

In Amsterdam police arrested a 14-year-old gay basher. He was one in a group of 3 to attack 2 gay men back in early june. They spit on one of the gay man and when he was saying something about it they hit him in. The other 2 are still on the loose. He was not Moroccan for a change, but black.

One of the issues on the new platform for the Republican Party in Montana is to keep gay sex illegal. Cause being gay is criminal people!!! Ridiculous for a U.S state in the year 2010.

With a 5-4 vote the Supreme Court has decided that the University of California’s Hasting Law School can deny recognition of the School’s Christian Legal Society because it refuses to admit gays. They think that is against their core belief. Hastings’ thinks no campus group can deny people based on sexuality. Totally agree. Judge Kennedy was the swing vote and might be important if the same-sex marriage debate gets to that court.

Tariq Ramadan, the fired integration adviser of Rotterdam wants 50.000 bucks from the city. Ramadan has been extremely negative about gays in the past which led to an investigation after which he could stay but that caused the Libertarians to get out of the city council. A while back he was eventually fired because he also worked for Iranian government financed TV. Now he feels his dignity and honor is lost because of what happened. I think he should get lost.

Gay news, gay acceptance Netherlands, scouts can discriminate, bullying law passes Senate, bigots at Twin Cities Pride

24 06 2010

The accepting of gay people in the Netherlands still leaves a lot to be desired. According to a SCP poll gays are not excepted well by religious people, lowed educated one and Turkish and Moroccans(surprise, surprise) More than half on gay teens has thought about suicide. I can relate, so did I. Still think overall it is pretty good with the acceptance here, but we are not there yet.

A federal court ruled in Philadelphia , that the Boy Scouts can still discriminate against gays even though that goes against the city’s anti-discrimination law. They cannot be kicked out of a city-owned building and do not even have to pay rent, all because of their First Amendment rights. I do not know the specific details about this case/the U.S law enough to know if the city could even get them out with the First Amendment rules in mind but it is ridiculous that gays are still not allowed at the Boy scouts.

After being 9 years in the making New York finally passed an anti-bullying law though the Senate that now only needs to go to Governor Paterson’s desk for a signature. It passed 58-3, except for 3 Republicans. It is only for public school and applies to events on school grounds and school events and will prohibit harassment and discrimination based on gender, sexuality, color, religion and more. Took forever but great is passed.

Am anti-gay Evangelist couple Johnson is allowed to distribute bibles and anti-gay leaflets at Twin Cities Pride. The organizers paid the city 36.000 for the day and want to decide themselves who can have a booth at the parade and want to ban the Johnson’s trough a court-ruling. The religious law firm ADF filed a complaint and say they should be able to be there and speak their hate. The Johnson’s were banned last year but showed up anyway and got arrested. Here is a clip from last year before the arrest. I dunno about this one, there is Freedom of Speech, but these people are just doing it to hate and cause trouble.





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.

Finally this psycho is getting what he deserves. Only after killing a girl unfortunately. It seems almost 100% sure now that he killed her after being seen on camera going to her room together and leaving alone. While I do not think he purposely killed Natalee Holloway, I do think that he knows where her body is. She probably overdoses¬†on something but who knows… This guy seems to be capable of anything, also trying to blackmail Holloway’s mother. So low. And now he does not have his judge father to get him out of trouble anymore either. It sickens me to read on yahoo about a dutch killer etc. I know he is dutch but he is such bad publicity for the Netherlands and Aruba. And the system has kept him out of prison for all these years, that is the worst thing. Well, he will not get off that easy in Peru. I bet the rich father of the murdered girl will make sure some prisoners will get him good every now and then. What a rant!!!





Gay news, Malawi couple free, another reason to out closeted politicians, gays afraid to kiss in public, hate on U.S radio show

30 05 2010

Some great news from Africa yesterday. The president of Malawi Bingu Wa Mutharaki pardoned to gay couple previously sentenced to 14 years in jail after talks with UN leader Ban Ki-moon. He still thought they did something that was a crime against the country’s culture religion and law but out of humanity pardoned them even though he does not agree with what they did. Seems like the foreign pressure did help.

California Senator Roy Ashburn, who recently was outed as gay admitted in an interview that during his career he voted against gay issues out of fear his secret would be revealed. He said with it he denied gays basic rights and was ashamed of it. Another reason closeted politicians need to be outed.

A survey in the U.K showed that 61% of gay men are afraid to show affection in public. They are hesitant to kiss/hold hands ,only 6% of straight couples feel the same. Pretty bad, wonder what that is in the U.S. I never hold hands with my boyfriend in public but do kiss upon seeing him. Not slobbery, just a hello kiss and that should be fine.

A Minnesota christian ministry, tied to tea-bagger favorite, the horrible Michelle Bachman, praised the Muslims for their call to execute gays in the U.S on a radio show. The host Bradlee Dean goes on about gays being predators, destroying lives and God raising an enemy for the U.S to kill the gays. Such loving people.





Dutch gay news, no discrimination gays at school, gaydar explained, hate crimes law in Holland?

30 05 2010

Party Democrats’66 in the Netherlands have come up with a new law that would not allow discrimination against gays at schools. Schools from now on cannot fire or deny a teacher for the sole reason of being gay. So far that only happened at christian schools.

A research team from the University of Leiden(where my sister graduated) have come up with an explanation for a gaydar. They presented 42 people, both gay and straight with photos of outlines of large squares and rectangles. When the men and women were presented with similar question about the shown pictures, straights answered faster and made more mistakes. Gays were slower but had more answers right especially the smaller ones. Gays have higher perceptual skills and are more analytical that allows them to recognize other gays faster. I dunno, I do have a gaydar that works very well, but if it is because of this…

The Green Party in the Netherlands( a party that I normally do not care about, I am not green) have come up with a good new law-idea right before election time. Why not earlier??? They want a hate crimes law that gives harder punishments(with 1/3) against people because of their sexuality, religion, ethnicity, handicap or age. Of course I am against all acts of crime but I do think if it is for one of the above reasons, it should way harder. I have to be honest and say I care most about handicap or sexuality.
