Gay news; homophobic attack in Amsterdam on straight man, Anne Frank diary deemed to filthy for school, Obama keeps disappointing

30 01 2010

A straight older man in Amsterdam who works above the store Gays&Gadgets was standing in font of the store holding a bag from the gay store when 2 younger guys(look Moroccan) started shouting abusive things to the guy and when he walks after them to confront them one of the guys kicks the older guy who kicks back, falls on the floor and the Moroccan guy starts kicking him some more. This was all on camera and that is another sign only cameras at gay hotspots does not help. More police and heavier sentences for the homophobes are the only things that might help.

A revised version of the Diary of Anne Frank called “The Definite Edition” has been pulled by a school system in Virginia. The book that was published on the 50th anniversary of her death in a concentration camp and had according to a parent it had sexually explicit material and homosexual undertones referencing to a passage where Anne has a crush on another girl. Such an important book, one of the most important in the world ever and people complain that their teens read something about a girl-girl crush. Ridiculous.

Obama keeps disappointing the gays by only making promises and not doing anything real. He has promised once more in his State of the Union that Don’t Ask, don’t tell will be repealed, but he did this already before and still nothing has happened on this issue. And during a Town Hall meeting when he was asked about the issue of gay marriage the only thing he came up with was the old and boring gays should be able to go to the hospital when their partner is dying. Dodging the question because he is against it and does not want to upset the gays even more. Especially as a black man he should be in favor of equality.

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.

 

 





Gay news

It was Pink Monday again yesterday at one of the biggest carnival fairs in the Netherlands. Every year since 1990 Tilburg turns pink for 300.000 gays, drag queens and lesbians from all over Europe riding the swings and bumper cars. The theme this year was Be Gay for a day.

Gay and Mormons clashed at a third demonstration over the kiss at a Mormon owned square in Salt Lake City( I have reported about that before on this blog). According to the gays is was just a modest kiss and according to the Mormons it was lewd behavior. This was the third kiss-in that was organized by the gay community and 100 gays came to the square to protest. This time though the Mormons had some counter protesters that kept going on about that is was bad for kids to see gay people kissing. Kids don’t care about men kissing at all, as long as their parents talk about gays in a normal way.

A  gay teen was bullied at a 4H camp in Virginia while counsellors were outside at the porch and not checking in on the kids for the 1.5 hours the teasing went on. Feel sad for the 15y old kid. I was teased about my sexuality at about that age as well at school. It never made me cry but it did turn me from a sensitive and caring boy into a person with a shielded outlook that did not care about others at all for a few years.
