Perhaps the misconception, aided by some porn, that "lesbians" exist only to titillate straight men... that idea should have died a natural death long ago.
Another case of religious nut jobs inisting that everyone must conform to their book of loony tunes. I think I would put that hotel in the same box as Chick-fil a and Hobby Lobby. They would like to do here the same as Islam did to the Arab world where it is illegal to possess a functioning mind.
So.....in my travels around the country, I sometimes use public computers in hotels (if available and free) to catch up on emails, such as those from Atheist/Nexus, alerting me to new posts in my groups.
Last week I was in Seattle at an airport hotel checking my email. I had an email alerting me to a new post in this group. However, when I clicked on the link, a pop-up message appeared on the computer screen stating that access to this webpage was denied because the filter was banning a certain word: "lesbian."
Can you just imagine the jaw-dropping, face-palm moment I experienced? I was stunned!
The pop-up screen allowed me to make a comment about the word, if I wanted, to be forwarded to management for further review, so I wrote, "This is ignorant and overly-controlling. Lesbian is not a dirty word."
I've never before experienced this on a public computer. I guess now I know first hand how it must be to use the internet in China.
Regarding the Boy Scouts of America decision. I'm definitely seeing this "victory" as a glass less than half full. To quote an anonymous commenter in the Holy Bullies and Headless Monsters blog: The headlines should be reading "BSA votes to kick gay scouts out at age 18"
I'm with you Chrissie, Dallas, and Daniel. If an anti-gay supporter wants to be a selfless martyr and end their life over two people loving each other, then let them kindly proceed, as long as they don't take any innocent victims with them. I will save my mourning for the true victims of anti-gay hate.....those LGBTQI individuals who have been murdered, beaten, bullied and/or themselves driven to suicide.
Thanks Dallas, I am a long time ago Vet. Korea & Nam. but I am a member of OutServe the Gay Mlitary Org. and this video came through them. This old world still has a long way to go.
Sorry about that, Google Charlie and Karen a military love story and it will come up. don't know why the link would not work.
I feel more sorrow for people such as these girls than I do for those biggots. Watch.
know it's a bit sad but I hope he is the first Leming. Of course it would work out much less gory if they found a cliff to use.
A beautiful smack in the gob for the offensive French Catholics. They have for years had the opinion that France had to cater to their every whim. As a Limey I don't have a very high opinion of the Froggies but with this move they have jumped a long way up in my opinion. It appears that the European Common Market has for the first time in history made a positive move but of course by accident.
England has only ever been a half way participant it the EEC folly and if they would drop out it would almost be a good moove to go home, but of course I could never afford to live there. Oh well I guess I am stuck in the Bible Belt. Could be worse.
It's a breath of fresh air that the NYC Cops have decided that that was a hate crime. With the reports they had no other opton.
