GOProud has to be the most repugnant group around. Dan Savage is right. They are House F**ggots.
I just embedded a link on another group no problem.
Judge says harassment and bullying not a human rights violation.
Court: Human Rights Law Doesn't Cover Public School StudentsNew York's highest court ruled that the state's Human Rights Law does not protect students against harassment and discrimination in public schools.As a result of today's ruling by the state Court of Appeals, these students are now denied access to the law's comprehensive protections. read more »http://www.lambdalegal.org/blog/ny-court-human-rights-law-students
@Joan I totally agree with Sentient. For these people, the word of god supersedes any scientific facts. Thankfully their numbers are dwindling, just not fast enough for us. Basically we're in a waiting game as they slowly catch up to the modern era. This will take a few more generations. This issue was discussed in a conversation recently between Daniel Dennet and Richard Dawkins that Hemant Mehta posted over on his blog, The Friendly Atheist.

Sentient, do you think the recent findings of genetics will make any difference in the temper and tone of the religious right on matters of homosexuality.
The Toronto Pride Parade is coming up this weekend and I fully intend to be there this year. We've managed to miss it the last several years because of job issues, but we're going to make it this year. Definitely will be at the trans march! Probably a million people or so showing up so it should be quite the party! Then the Mississauga Pride Parade is two weeks later so that will be fun as well since it's in the city I currently live in. We did manage to make it to the Kitchener pride parade last year but it was cancelled due to lightning storms. Sucked. Wasn't even re-scheduled which didn't make sense so we tweeted and FB'd for people to just meet at the local GLBT hangout/bar and had a full day and night of dancing! :-
Yea for Kameron Slade! He's adorable and has a GREAT speech. I just want to take him out for a hamburger and a chocolate shake.
Pride parade is next week here in Chicago. I'm kind of surprised Portland has their pride parade in direct competition with Father's Day. Like you, I'm also a bystander.....great people watching, which is a great pastime in itself. Last year's parade in Chicago was absolutely insane. Usually there's between 400,000 to 500,000 people, but last year they estimated close to 750,000 showed up. The weather was picture-perfect which tends to bring out more people. Too many people crammed into the relatively small area of Boystown. It presented such a dangerous problem with overcrowding that this year they've changed the parade route (first time in over 25 years) and extended it to spread out the crowd.
Sentient, I'm sorry I dragged up a bad period in your life. I've always enjoyed the dark humor of the Addams Family, so I was approaching your reference with levity and lightheartedness. I had no idea the morbid aspect was actually real for you, so I apologize to you. You've related quite a dreary story. Thanks for being so open and for having the courage to share it.
