Gay news, Chicago Blackhawks at Pride, Mr Gay UK arrested, U.S army man thinks French dinner is fucking gay, AMA attacks Home Depot

23 06 2010

One of the Chicago Blackhawks(ice hockey), Brent Sobel, his wife and 4 kids will march at Gay Pride in Chicago this sunday with the Stanley Cup!. Sobel says he will be mach in honor of Brendan Burke, the gay son of American coach Brian Burke. Burke died last year right before the Olympics. Great of Sobel!! The Chicago Cubs will have a float for the first time as well.

Mr Gay UK of 2006, Mark Carter, a police man has to go to court for alleged sexual abuse, rape and drugs. He has made 4 rape victims and used illegal steroids as well. Kinda ironic that a hottie like that needs to rape people to get his sex. Probably more a power/drug-thing than.

After General McCrystal called President Obama and  VP Biden the real enemies of the men in Afghanistan, he also said he would rather got punched/beaten than go to a dinner with the french embassy. One of his adjutants called the dinner, “fucking gay,” The dinner was necessary because over 40 french soldiers got killed in Afghanistan already, but apparently for some U.S military people it is all about them. Extreme lack of respect.

The American Family Association(bigots) have attacked Home Depot and launched an email and phone campaign because the fix-it giant hosted a craft workshop for kids at the Southern Maine Pride. They think Home Depot is exposing kids to a dangerous lifestyle and an unhealthy environment and want people to protest. Lunatics!

Top 10 road trip in the U.S.

28 05 2010

Yahoo published a list of THE 10 road trips in the U.S to take. Here they are.

–  Big Sur in California, around Carmel. Did it and loved it ,that area is so spectacular with the views of the ocean and the cliffs.

– Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina. Not yet

– Going to the sun, Montana. Not yet.

– Hana Highway, Hawaii. Not yet. Been to Hawaii but not there.

– Million Dollar Highway, Colorado. Impressive mountains, wildflowers, wildlife and neat little towns.

-Red Rock Scenic By Way, Sedona. So different from anything I had ever seen, just magical. Arizona was the most spectacular scenery I had ever seen in my life. Nothing like that in Europe.

-Sea Island, Georgia. Not yet but close to Savannah where Paula Deen has her restaurant so I will get there eventually.

-Seward Highway, Alaska. Not yet, but Alaska is on my wish list.

-Sonama and Napa valleys, California. Beautiful wine country with tons of great wineries. With a wine-lover as partner I have been there at least times.

U.S Route 1, Maine. 3 years ago my boyfriend and I took a long road-trip trough New England and i adore that area, the pretty english-looking towns, coastal beauty and great food. What more can you want!!

Surprised I did 5 out of 10 already while not being an American and being 31. I bet most 31-year old U.S folk have not done the same!!





Gay news; Washington in favor of domestic partnerships, God hates shellfish so no more Maine lobster for me, marriage equality in NY??

6 11 2009

In Washington State referendum 71 passed yesterday. It was to preserve the new domestic partnerships law and it won with 52% of the votes. I think it is great at least something big was won during Tuesdays election. But I am also wondering why 48% of the people of Washington State are even against domestic partnership. With marriage they can use that marriage is between a man and a woman. But what excuse they use to vote against domestic partnership. Must be pure hate.

So if 53% of Maine is against equality for gays, many citing the bible that God says it’s an abomination for a man to lay with another man. Well in the same bible it says that eating shellfish is an abomination so maybe people should also stop ordering Maine lobster. Since the word of God is more important then the well-being of people, a downfall in the Maine economy is not that big a deal to Maine people.  I am not gonna eat Maine lobster for a while.

Governor Paterson from the State New York has called the senate back for a special session on November 10 and marriage equality is on the agenda. Paterson is a true ally of the gay community( a lot more than the other so-called ally in the white house). Now I hope that more than half of the 62 State Senators will vote in favor of marriage equality, but I have my severe doubts. Let’s try to stay positive though for all LGBT New Yorkers and hope for equality. It’s about time in this state.





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.

 

 





Marriage equality battles

21 10 2009

The Marriage Equality battle keeps getting more and more intense. A new public policy poll shows an exact tie in Maine. Meanwhile in Washington the anti-gayers keep showing more and more lies in their ads.Protect Marriage Washington says in an ad that in 2004 Scandinavia legalized gay marriage and in that year alone suicide doubled and illicit drug use increased 19 times. What a bunch of bullshit, first Scandinavia is not a country, no Scandinavian country legalized gay marriage in 2004 and the other numbers are just to ridiculous for words. Do people really believe lies like that??





Gay news; Catholics to fast against gay marriage, anti-gay assault in Hell’s Kitchen and justice in Salt Lake City

28 09 2009

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland, Maine is encouraging the State’s Catholics to take part in a 40-day prayer and fasting campaign to convince God to stop Gay Marriage. In the Netherlands the Catholic church would not even say things like that anymore for being ridiculed, the one in the U.S. seems as strict and anti-gay as the Vatican. I think that a God that made people gay, would want them to be able to get married.

In the Hell’s Kitchen area of NYC right in front of McCoys bar, a gay man and his friends were attacked in an anti-gay assault. A cigarette was thrown at them and when they turned around a man told them” Keep moving, Faggot”. words were exchanged and then the man threw one gay man against a car, denting it and punched another one a few times on his lip. That this happened in a gay-friendly part of Manhattan is a shock in itself but more so that the NYPD came and did nothing, no arrest not even taken the guy’s information. I knew cops all over the U.S treat gays badly but in Manhattan??

In Salt Lake City a gay man,D.J. Bell has been acquitted of burglary and kidnapping charges in a case jurors called a waste of time. Two kids age 2 and 4 came to their gay neighbors house because their Polynesian family Latu had a rowdy drunken party all night and the kids could not sleep and felt unsafe. When the family later found out that the kids were at the gay couple’s house, they severely beat up the gay couple. The defense team is now looking into filing charges against Bell’s attackers. It’s unbelievable this case even went to court, the Latu family should be going to jail themselves.





Gay news; Maine bigots use kids as excuse again, Mika bi, bullfighting to become gayer

24 09 2009

In Maine the battle on marriage equality is raging on heavily. And of course the bigots use lies again in their ads. In a new ad they say that the gay movement says gay marriage has nothing to do with school, but according to them it has everything to do with school. A worried mother and father said there 8-year old kid came home and told them he learned at school a man can marry a man. This is a lie firstly, but secondly is it so bad if a kid would learn that at school??. Will his world collapse, will he turn gay immediately?? Some of my nephews know about me being with my boyfriend since age 5 and they are absolutely fine with it. If a parent does not make a big deal out of it, neither do the kids.

Singer Mika talked to dutch magazine Gay&Night and told them he “never limits himself, so also not to whom he sleeps with”. So if someone wants to label him ” Call me bisexual”. But he still recommends being label-less. He picked a good day to do this, september 23 was ‘Celebrate Bi-sexuality day’. Someone commented on this: “Sure, girl, you are bi, me too!! He is just afraid to lose female fans.” I kind of agree with that comment. While I surely believe people can be bi-sexual, I highly doubt Mika is one of them. Still love his music though!

Spanish matador Joselito Ortega is about to gay up bullfighting, literally. He will be plugging a club-scene energy drink called Gay Up and will have these words embroidered in his cape in large letters. Top bullfighters are seen as macho celebrities in Spain so this is quite controversial. Ortega thinks it would be nice if he would be a symbol for the gay community.
