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.

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
