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.

Gossip, Ke$ha, Johnny Weir, Perez Hilton, Jackass a jackass??

17 06 2010

Ke$ha says that after taken her dogs out to poop she sometimes keep the full plastic bags to wrap them up for people as presents. Maybe she visited my sister-in-law who found a turd in the dressing room at the store she works.

Johnny Weir might follow in the footsteps of his arch-nemesis Evan Lysacek and will be on the next series of Dancing with the Stars. He already has a partner. Karina Smirnoff is a big fan and wants to dance with him. You will be sure he will bring the sparkle in his outfits.

Perez Hilton is in some trouble. He posted a pic on his twitter from Miley Cyus getting out of her car implying she did not have underwear on. After Miley was pissed and people said this could be considered child pornography, Perez quickly removed the pic. He now says she was wearing underwear to downplay the controversy and all the new Miley posts on his website have been super sweet. Not a smart move by him but this is hardly pornography.

Jackass star Bam Margera was beaten with a baseball bat by a crazy woman outside of his bar in West Chester, PA. The woman, his neighbor was arrested and Bam had to go to the hospital. Apparently she constantly calls the police, threatened Bam and his wife before. She calls him a jackass and uses the oldest trick in the book. The race-card. Hope the woman serves some time in jail





Gay news; education leads to gay tolerance, Lil Mama, gay&Muslims

3 09 2009

In Florida a study that was done after the passing of the anti-gay marriage Amendment showed that education was 5 times as important then race in support of gay marriage. It found that each additional one percent increase in bachelor’s degrees in a county correlated with one percent increase in support of gay marriage. Meaning education leads to greater tolerance. Not a surprise here, most anti-gay people are just dumb idiots. And now that is even factual.

Rapper and judge of America’s Best Dance Crew on MTV, rapper Lil Mama has issued an apology for grilling a transgender dancer from the fabulous groups Vogue Evolution a bit too much. She told Leiomy ,who was acting like a real bitch/diva behind the scenes that her behavior was unacceptable and is she was gonna become a woman she should behave like a lady. Lil Mama said her comments were never meant to be disrespectful to the transgender community and I totally believe her. I mean I love Vogue Evolution(can’t wait every week to see on YouTube what they have come up with) but Lil Mama was right here in the first place. Some gay groups want an apology for everything. She even said in a previous episode that it takes a transgender woman to bring to femininity of Beyonce. 

At a conference on Islam held in Indonesia, moderate Muslim scholars issued a statement calling homosexuality normal  and created by God. They say there is no reason to reject gays homosexuals under Islam and that the condemnation of homosexuality by Muslims is based on narrow-minded interpretations of the Koran. A small step in the right direction but right away 2 conservative Islamic groups responded by condemning gays. Still a very long if impossible way to go there.
