SB - Sumatra or Sumatran?Tony - Well said. Gay rights shouldn't even be an issue.
That's what my gut is telling me. This makes me feel shameful, as if I need to apologize to everyone because I'm a straight man. I just really believe in justice for all, and truly love all my family and friends, some who just happen to be gay. Love them all. To me the real crime is why are poeple still living in poverty? Why do some go hungry? What are the root causes of inequality, what can we do to address these true issues, make this place we live in better. Gayness, such a non-issue when compared to these type of issues. Sorry, started to go into rant mode. Just know I think you're right. I'm right there with you any way I can help. Be well, my friend.
Tony - a straight couple probably would've gotten a slap on the wrist, the guy would've probably received a wink and a nudge from the responding officers, and they'd be told to keep it inside (or to get a room). Straight people enjoy the protections of straight police, but homosexuals are almost always made an example of in an attempt to shame us back into the closet.
What bothered me about the Huff Post article was the homophobic baptist church pastor crowing his bigoted head off about the arrest.
David, I was thinking the same thing. Would it have happened if the couple was straight? Don't know, but my gut seems to think no.
Oh no, my mind is like the blending of a Salvador Dali painting and a Tim Burton movie. It's pretty frightening.As for the Atlantis cruise, I guess I can see how the arrests were valid. However, the question I would pose is whether the couple would've been arrested if they were straight. Would they have been hauled down to ye olde station and made an example of?
Gay boogieman indeed. Last I heard, most people were born by the combination of an egg and a sperm. Which means gay people were conceived by straight people. Huh. Imagine that. Don't tell Santorum that. It'll just give him more ammunition. He'll invariably make the womans fault. Thanks SB.
SB - If I had a dollar every time I said this, I might be slightly richer than I am (don't have a precise number for you): Why are you in me?
Question. Do you think the rise of honophobia is a last gasp before change? Ex. the U.S. civil war as an active last gasp to stop abolition of slavery? I know not the only reason, but the major cause. And the civil rights movement. I grew up in Mississippi and saw the reactionary last gasp of overt racism of the average person. Granted, it is still around, but no longer supported by your average American. Just as a recent poll on LGBT rights show, most Americans support most, if not all rights for the community. And most of them are straight. I know the work of the LGBT community is far from over, but is this just as I seem to see, or do you think there is something there? Thanks guys. Please let me know if you think I'm right, wrong, or just howlin' at the moon in my underwear again.
Are you following my YouTube history or something!? I literally just watched this and posted it everywhere!
