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, Cockring closed, counselors allowed to drop gays, Huckabee thinks gay sex has Ick-factor ,Texas GOP platform

21 06 2010

The Cocking is a big gay disco in Amsterdam and probably my favorite in the whole world. I haven’t been there in years but I used to go there every week(or more) and now it might be closing. They had a drug raid there and arrested multiple people for possession and dealing of drugs, the owner was arrested as well. I know the owner personally and always thought he was a cool and nice man(haven’t seen him in 6 years either and even if there was some drugs in the club?? What is the big deal, there are drugs in every club/disco around the world. Let people decide if they take drugs themselves. Cops could use their time better to arrest real criminals imo.

Update, Cockring is closed indefinite.

There is a debate in Nebraska about a new regulation that would allow counselors(psychologists, therapists) to drop a gay patient due to religious or moral reasons. While I would not want a homophobe counselor I also think it is very bad for people with mental problems to be denied because of their sexuality. They have problems enough as it is . So kinda torn on this issue.

Idiot politician Mick Huckabee was at is again by saying gay sex has an Ick-factor. What does he think the Ick-factor of him having sex is?? He does prefer same-sex over affairs with Nancy Pelosi and Helen Thomas.

The teabagger influenced GOP platform for Texas is calling for quite a few ridiculous calls. They want to make it a felony to perform gay marriages, and oppose legalization of “sodomy” (being gay). They also wanna ban the lottery and required sonograms for women seeking abortion.





Gay news,the porn star and the senator, Eminem in favor of gay marriage, Iceland rebellious to God, Puerto Rico hate crimes

17 06 2010

Gay twinky porn star and escort Brandon Wilde, 20, had a dinner date with 45-year-old openly gay Republican Senator Paul Koering from Minnesota. Koering gave an interview to a porn blog after Wilde made the news of their date public on Twitter saying he did not think Wilde was making the right choices but that he was a nice guy nonetheless. It only stayed with a dinner and no sex but according to Wilde, Koering wanted more. Koeing has voted against gay marriage(self-hate!!), but told Wilde he wanted to become president and make gay marriage legal in Minnesota. Later on he denied saying that. Going on a date with a young porn star and hoping he won’t talk about certain things is a little naive Mr Koering. I bet Wilde would be the cutest “first lady” ever. I always wanted to become that though!

I always thought (f)Eminem was not a real gay hater like his music implies. There he says he hates fags etc but at the same time he was best buddies with Lady Elton(who seems to like the fake bigots). In a recent interview with the NYT he says he is fine with gay marriage and thinks gays that love another should have the same right to be miserable as straight couples. And he knows what he is talking about!!

According to “ex-gay” minister James Hartline Iceland will be in trouble. After the recent volcano eruption that “almost destroyed the nation according to him” they know voted 49-0 for gay marriage and that combined with having a “satanic” lesbian Prime Minister means they are rebellious and self-destructing. Hartline thinks he is a prophet, I think SHE is crazy.

After the recent brutal hate crimes in Puerto Rico, the government there has empaneled a special investigative committee to collect statistics and end the violence there. In 2002 there was a legislation establishing hasher penalties for crimes based on gender identity or sexual preference but so far nothing was done. At least this is a step in the right direction.





Dutch gay news, no discrimination gays at school, gaydar explained, hate crimes law in Holland?

30 05 2010

Party Democrats’66 in the Netherlands have come up with a new law that would not allow discrimination against gays at schools. Schools from now on cannot fire or deny a teacher for the sole reason of being gay. So far that only happened at christian schools.

A research team from the University of Leiden(where my sister graduated) have come up with an explanation for a gaydar. They presented 42 people, both gay and straight with photos of outlines of large squares and rectangles. When the men and women were presented with similar question about the shown pictures, straights answered faster and made more mistakes. Gays were slower but had more answers right especially the smaller ones. Gays have higher perceptual skills and are more analytical that allows them to recognize other gays faster. I dunno, I do have a gaydar that works very well, but if it is because of this…

The Green Party in the Netherlands( a party that I normally do not care about, I am not green) have come up with a good new law-idea right before election time. Why not earlier??? They want a hate crimes law that gives harder punishments(with 1/3) against people because of their sexuality, religion, ethnicity, handicap or age. Of course I am against all acts of crime but I do think if it is for one of the above reasons, it should way harder. I have to be honest and say I care most about handicap or sexuality.





Gay news, Osbournes Pride Marshals in LA, homophobia in Asylum system, Prides in Rumania and Slowakia, lesbians raped in South Africa

24 05 2010

Kelly and Sharon Osbourne will be the Grand Marshals for the Los Angeles Gay Parade. They have spoken out a lot of gay issues and have always been very supportive of the gay community, so great choices. Better than Paris Hilton and her mom e few years back. Saturday Sharon hosted an Equality California event at their mansion to celebrate Harvey Milk Day.

U.K. gay rights group Stonewall just finished an extensive study that shows that almost all gay and lesbian asylum-seekers are returned to their home-country. Many are send back with the words they should just live discreet. Even though in some countries in the middle east and africa gays are really being killed for their sexuality. I totally an in favor of thorough vetting of asylum-seekers also in the Netherlands. But we do accept too many that do not need to be here and can go home and do not accept others that are in danger of their lives and would totally integrate in our society.

While Gay Pride in Rumania this weekend was a success with hundreds of participants and no violence, Rainbow pride in Bratislava was a disaster. Thousand people had accumulated on the centre to celebrate when 80 extremist skinheads started to throw stones and smoke bombs. Police only caught 8!! After the incident police asked for the Pride to be cancelled.

South Africa is all in the centre of the news because of the upcoming World Championships soccer in a few weeks. Groups have asked for people to be aware that a lot of women are being raped there because of their sexuality, being gay is still a big taboo there. One in every two women gets raped and the rate is highest in the slumps of Johannesburg and Capetown. There men still think they can “cure” women and make them straight by fucking them. Repulsive.





Gossip, Larry king,Priscilla Queen of the Desert/Wizard of Oz, Taylor Lautner gay?, Mel Gibson split, Nicole Ritchie/Coco in camel-toe war

18 04 2010

What a fool Larry King is. Fucking with his sister-in-law. And then buying her expensive gifts so his wife can find out. Well, he is a sex-symbol in his own eyes so obviously all women are throwing themselves on him. Now he and his wife say they wanna try to work it out though, if she deserves him.

The movie Priscilla Queen of the Desert is one of my all-time favorites. You can understand my joy with hearing it will come to Broadway as a musical. It has been in the theaters in Sydney and London and is a huge hit there. I also heard they will make a prequel to the movie the Wizard of Oz with Johnny Depp as Scarecrow.I dunno about that idea, that is such an iconic movie.

Rumors about actor Taylor Lautner’s sexuality haven been very strong since he became famous with the movie Twilight. His legions of girl fans are probably not happy to hear that he attended a party of a well-known gay socialite last weekend. The party was almost entirely attended by gay man so he is either a fag hag or…

Mel Gibson portraying that loving religious person that he likes to be is becoming more and more ridiculous. First the anti-semitic tirades, then the cheating on his wife and now he has allegedly already split with his new wife Oksana Grigorieva. They have a 5-month old baby together. Joan Rivers said in a reply that Gibson should just die. Love me some Joan!

Nicole Ritchie and rapper Ice-T’s wife Coco are in a war on Twitter. She typed her friend said that Coco’s famous camel-toe will swallow you up and after Ice and Coco acted a little pissed, Nicole got scared and begged for forgiveness. I like Coco and her camel-toe. It is fun to watch and she is not afraid to show her assets.





Gossip; pregnancy news; James Franco straight enough to learn gay, Janice Dickenson, Chastity Bono

22 09 2009

Former tennis star Anna Kournikova and singer Enrique Iglesias are allegedly expecting their first baby. The couple have been together for years and I think they make a great match. Both are really hot, succesful and seems like good people as well. Congrats to them. Another couple having a baby are Erik Dane(Grey’s McSteamy) and his wife Rebecca Gayheart. Hope for the baby they did not smoke crack again in recent months.

I love a man who is so secure of his sexuality that he can follow a course in Queer cinema at New York University. Actor and uber-hottie James Franco(from the movie Milk) will do just that. He will watch the movies” You don’t know Dick”  and “Loads” this syllabus. I think the more a guy is at ease with gays the more secure he is with his own sexual preference. My brother for example is pretty macho and had no problem in the past going to gay bars with me. Insecure guys on the other hand often become gay bashers.

Janice Dickenson was a huge success on the British version of “I’m a celebrity, get me out of here” So much that she was asked to host the show this season. Lucky Brits, when Janice is on it always promises fireworks. She seems to make a career out of reality lately. She has her own model show, was on ANTM for years, was on “I’m a celebrity” in both the UK and the US. Last week I saw her on a glitter, glamour show for dutch TV, with her new young fireman boyfriend, and yesterday she was on the Dutch version of Top Model. The thing is, I never get fed up seeing her!! Love that woman!

Cher’s  former daughter/future son Chastity/Chaz has inked a 6-figure deal to write a book about her transition from female to male. The book, titled “Coming Clean will be out in the spring of 2011. Should be a good read.
