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.

Gay news,gay hospital rights, top 5 influential gays, Melissa Etheridge split

16 04 2010

President Obama has ordered hospitals to grant gay couples visitation rights in the hospital and medical power of attorney. Finally something very significant that he does and very important. Bravo. It was ridiculous of course that parts of same-sex couples in certain places in the U.S. were sometimes denied but luckily that is all in the past now. Medical power of attorney could also be done with a will of course, like me and me bf have arranged.

Out magazine have made their yearly list of most powerful/influential gays public. 5 Adam Lambert, 4 Rachel Maddow, 3 Anderson Cooper(who is not even out), 2 Barney Frank and numero uno of course Ellen!!

Melissa Etheridge and longtime partner Tammy Lynn Michaels have split up after exchanging vows in 2003. They have son and a daughter together. Tammy seemed a bit bitchy and weird in interviews so maybe Melissa needed something else, who knows. Gay couples are just like straights, love and marriage sometimes followed by divorce.






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.





Anna Nicole

3 02 2010

Yesterday there was not a thing on TV here in the Netherlands so I watched the movie about the life of Anna Nicole Smith. Wow, the acting was so bad and it had a cameo of Bobby Trendy as himself but other than that it was kinda cool. I have always been kinda fascinated by Anna, watched her real-life soap, read a biography book about her and followed the news around her life. So it was kinda nice to see it all played out a bit as a movie for a change. She was a naïve but good girl who just wanted to make it in the world and seeing where she came from she did very well. I also think she really loved her old billionaire husband because he was good for her and son Daniel. She seemed fairly normal in the beginning of her life but fame and tragedy were too much for her and then it is easy getting addicted to pills and liquor. Her life really ended like that of her idol Marilyn Monroe, sad and with media attention all over the world. She probably would have liked that at least.





Gay news; 3 stories about people that get discriminated themselves, but do the same to gays

16 10 2009

The Muslim football team that first refused to play a gay team, then said they would and then again backed out are being kicked out of their local Paris league for discrimination. Well done Paris, this was just too ridiculous. Muslims always yell that they don’t get any respect. Well, let them show others respect for a change.

ABC news had an interview with a latino thug that was friends with the guys that beat down Jack Price this weekend, something I blogged about earlier this week. The guy is proudly showing of his tattoo with the Leviticus quote, “A man shall not lay with a male as one does with a woman, it’s an abomination”  and then says it was not an anti-gay hate-crime and that the Price had it coming for blowing kisses at him and other guys in the Queens Area.Luckily Price is out of his coma now. I get so sick of the gay panic defense/hiding behind religion that is used as a stupid excuse for such violence. Well with a tattoo like that you are not very believable as it comes to not hating gays!! And if there is a God he would certainly not accept beating up an innocent man like that.

A lesbian woman was the victim of some anti-gay abuse at the National Equality March by a group of black teenage skateboarders. They threw a jug at her and her girlfriend and when she asked who did it, one girl came forward and asked if she had a problem with that. When she answered back “yes, why did you do this” , the black girl answered that she was a bitch and a dyke. The lesbian woman started to reason with the girl and told her she was black and her great-great grandparents might have been slaves and then all hell broke loose. The black girl started screaming the lesbian called her a nigger and  a slave and started to hit her and the gf with her skateboard and the other group of skateboarders came aggressively closer as well. Luckily police showed up and arrested the black girl. As much as I hate to say this, behavior like this seems to be pretty common in the black community and they should be fucking ashamed of themselves. Most gays have always stood behind acceptance of black and what do we get in return. My acceptance personally is getting less and less
