Gay News,Hawaii Gov. compares gay marriage to incest, Top Chef judge on Gay Pride float, separate showers if DADT is repealed?

14 07 2010

Linda Lingle, the Governor of Hawaii, who vetoed the civil unions bill of the state last week said on air that if gay marriage is a civil right than close relatives should also be able to get married, because that could be seen as a civil right as well. Lingle said ” First cousins could not get married, or a brother and sister and that sort of thing.” First off comparing gay marriage to incest is super insulting, second first cousins CAN actually get married in Hawaii. What a stupid bitch.

Top Chef Judge Tom Colicchio can be seen on a bear float during LA Gay Pride 2011. He told Andy Cohen during Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live” that he was insulted that no one in the bear community had asked him to be on a float during this years Gay Pride. After the show Bravo got flushed with phone calls and “A Bear’s Life Magazine” set it up. Because of his stocky build Colicchio, who is married with kids,  has been an icon in the bear community for quite sometime. Even though his restaurants have underwhelmed me often, this is pretty cool.

Friday it was made clear that if DADT will be repealed there might be some changes in the living situation of military people. The Pentagon is now heavily denying wanting separate barracks and showers after heavy criticism from the gay community and says there is only talk about maybe some extra shower curtains. Fuck that, how can a president whose father has been subjected to segregation even consider some of these things. Very repulsive.

The U.K. AIDS hospice made famous back in the 80’s by the visit of Princess Diana will be torn down. In 1989 the Princess of Wales was one of the first famous people to touch and hug people living with HIV/AIDS. Incredibly important in breaking the taboos.

Gay News, college teacher says homosexuality is sin, christian leader tells it like it is, poll on gays in military

10 02 2010

A biology teacher at a college in Fresno relied on the bible to do his teachings. He said gays are a burden/threat to society and that homosexuality is a biological mistake. Of course many students were offended and a complaint has been brought up against the school and the teacher. Someone needs to get his ass fired.

Pastor Ken Eastburn who leads a network of worshippers in California and Colorado says that regardless of the outcome of Prop 8 christians should worry less about imposing their own morals on others and worry more about their own life.He says it is a common mistake for christians to spent time energy and money advocating for a morality that is consistent with their faith while in fact they should be focusing on themselves. Hear, hear, I am sick of all these so-called christians that are against gay marriage but visit prostitutes or have affairs themselves. Hypocrites.

Since DADT( no openly gays in military) has been in the news a lot lately with most people wanting it to be repealed except people like John McCain ans Sarah Palin, there was a big poll done by Quinnipiac to show what Americans feel about that. 57% of people say they feel gays should be able to serve in the military. But 54% say gays should face restrictions on exhibiting their sexual orientation on the job. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?? Also most people believe the Pentagon should not provide for domestic partners of gay staff and people are split on whether heterosexual staff should be required to share quarter with the gays. WTF??? How discriminatory is that, people of America. What if someone would say that about white and black gays.
