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, Dutch protest Amsterdam/Utrecht, marine gay-bash in Georgia, hate academy in Chicago

14 06 2010

In Amsterdam over 1000 people protested against gay violence. Lately there have been 3 incidents of gays being harassed by Moroccans and people are fed up. The protest as at the gay monument at the Westermarkt. Hope finally something will be done about this huge problem.  Meanwhile in Utrecht people will come together to talk about a gay couple that left their house after being teased, and abused by Moroccan youth. The mayor calls it unacceptable.

2 U.S Marines have gay-bashed 26-year old  man in Savannah, Georgia. The men said they were harassed by the gay men and wanted to get away. Witnesses paint a different story. The Marines thought the gay man winked at them and after that they started to hit him unconscious while hurling slurs. The victim even suffered seizures and is still in the hospital. Fucking animals.

The anti-LGBT group “Americans for truth about homosexuality” are holding a Truth Academy August 5-7 in Coral Steam. It will teach people to be pro-family and learn how to counter gay activists so they can go around telling people who being gay is sinful, immoral and a threat to society. Seems like a wholesome family event.





Gay news, dutch elections, lesbian moms better, Oklahoma city councilman compares gays with pedophiles and wife-beaters

8 06 2010

Tomorrow is election-day in the Netherlands and because I never got my voter’s permit, I had to get one yesterday. It was a hassle but necessary. I read on the biggest gay website in the Netherlands that Libertarians(VVD) were number 1 with gays(also with me) followed by Geert Wilders’ PVV. Maybe if I would be gay and living in Amsterdam or Rotterdam and face all the discrimination and abuse by Moroccan guys I would be doing the same thing. Third is D’66, kinda left of the middle. I voted that my first 2 times. I think the Netherlands needs a strong economic party though to face the crisis and that is why VVD is good imo. I would never vote christian, green of left so there is not much else left to vote for anyway!!

According to a just published study from over 20 years, lesbian moms seem to raise better kids! On measurement of development and social behavior their kids scored similar to the kids of straight parents. But on self-esteem and confidence they scored higher, were better academically and had less behavioral problems. Wow!! Curious what the bigots say about this.

Oklahoma City approved a gay pride parade with 8-1 votes. The sole person against it was Brian Walters, who is a born-again christian that does not believe in the gay lifestyle. He said he would also not support wife-beaters or pedophiles to assemble. Cause that is the same thing, you know. What an idiot.

Sao Paulo Gay pride 2010 was a huge success. In Brazil, 3.2 million people celebrated and there were hardly any incidents. Pride is financed by the government and brings in millions of dollars to the city in revenue. I saw some footage and it looked pretty fabulous.





Gay man beating by Moroccans at gay memorial

8 05 2010

I read this disturbing news in my national paper today. At memorial day nonetheless last Wednesday 2 dutch Moroccans beat up a gay man who was making a tribute at the gay memorial for WWII victims in Amsterdam. The nerve to do that on that day and such a spot… The 38-year-old man was beaten, being kicked and hit and even lost consciousness. A girlfriend tried to help him and got punched as well and also needed assistance in the hospital. The 2 Moroccans left on a scooter. And then people wonder why Geert Wilders has such a big following. Sent those bastards to prison and then back to Morocco.





It should not get any crazier then this, Race Riots in the Netherlands

7 01 2010

Yes, you read it correct. Not in Africa or Asia but in the fucking Netherlands. In the town of Culemborg in the centre of our country groups of Moroccans(Islam) and Moluccas(a christian island group of Indonesia) are fighting each other.It is so bad that people are not allowed congregate in groups bigger then 4 on the streets over there. For years there have been troubles between these groups but since last september when a Moroccan and Moluccas guy got into a fight in a restaurant things have gotten out of control. A 15-year old Moluccas girl identified a Moroccan guy that put a car on fire to the police a few weeks ago and as a retaliation a group of 5 Moroccans in a car drove into a group of Moluccas with the 15-year old girl in their midst. Now people out of both groups from all over the country have promised to come to Culemborg to fight. A small group of Moluccas were a problem in the Netherlands in the 70’s but since then they have integrated very well into the dutch society unlike a lot of Moroccans. But the Moluccas are not taken any crap from anyone unlike lots of dutch people who keep on sugar-coating Moroccan behavior and that is why there are altercations now. Hope the dutch politicians finally learn something from this and take actions before it is too late.
