Gay News, elections gone sour, homophobe soccer player fired, teacher suspended after teaching class about homosexuality in animal kingdom

4 11 2009

Except for a few highlights, a lesbian woman won the race for mayor of Houston, Texas and the passing of the anti-discrimination law against LGBT people in Kalamazoo for gays yesterday’s election was a big disappointment. The biggest one in Maine where marriage equality was voted against with a 5.4% margin. I was really hoping that a blue state like Maine on the east coast would vote in favor of equality but apparently the majority of U.S. people just don’t think gays deserve equal rights. Other disappointments were the election of homophobe Ken Cuccinelli as attorney general of Virginia, a man who called homosexual acts unhealthy and wrong and the win of anti-gay New Jersey senator Chris Christie. Shame on you voters!!

In Denmark they show how you treat homophobes. FC Midtjylland fired its star goalie Arek Onyszko after his book called “Fucking Polack” was released. In that book the polish(surprise, surprise) player says he hates gays, thinks they are disgusting and likened them to vomit. The man assaulted his ex-wife before and went to prison for it. So his comments that his catholic beliefs prohibit him from accepting gays flies out of the window with that. I think religion also does not favor beating up your wife. Like many christians all over the world he uses religion just as he pleases.

A teacher at Southwestern High School in Piasa, Illinois has been suspended for assigning his class an article about homosexuality in the animal kingdom. According to the school it wasn’t age appropriate for high school(yeah right) The teacher ,who is straight by the way with kids, even gave the free option for kids to use the article or not. During his hearing this week many people showed up to support him and eventually the school “only” gave him a warning. It’s a known fact that there is homosexuality and even transsexuality(with shrimp to mate) in the animal life. Why is that too much for 12-16 year old kids to read or know.

GLBT NEWS over the world; lesbian in tux can’t get into year book, intersexed people in Aus. registered as sex-offenders to get meds, in Uganda gays get death penalty?

17 10 2009

A lesbian high school student is banned from her yearbook because she wore a tuxedo. The school in Wesson, Mississippi told Ceare┬áSturgis that her attire was inappropriate for her gender. The girl never wears girls clothes and felt horrible in a dress so she just decided to dress the way she is. In previous yearbooks of the school there had been cross-dressing by straight students and that was deemed fine, but a lesbian in a tux is just too much for them. ACLU has decided to take on the girl’s case against the school.

In Australia intersexed people have to join a sex offender list to get the medication they need. The health care policy only gives an anti-androgen medication to sex offenders and people with prostate cancer. Female-identified transsexuals that try the meds to suppress their male hormones have to join the list as well. What a ridiculous rule, as if those people don’t have a hard time enough on itself without being on a sex-offender list.

In Uganda a politician has proposed legislation that would make homosexuality on offense punishable by death. It’s already illegal in Uganda but this politician thinks harder laws need to be made. The bill does not only outlaw gay sex but also criminalize all advocacy of gay rights and family and friends of gays and lesbians that don’t report their loved ones to authorities should be punished as well. Sounds like Nazi Germany.
