Ugandan Parliament Speaker Pushes For ‘Kill The Gays’ Bill: Uganda’s Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga, took umbrage to the threat that Western countries like the U.S. and Canada would cut aid because of the country’s persecution of homosexuality.

Mark Regnerus Admits His ‘Family Structures’ Study Wasn’t About Gay Parenting

Mark Regnerus Admits His ‘Family Structures’ Study Wasn’t About Gay Parenting: Mark Regnerus’s “family structure” study has been a hot topic since it was released in June, namely because every single anti-gay conservative organization has cited it as evidence that same-sex couples are inferior parents. An internal audit by the academic journal that originally published it found the conclusions to be “bullshit” because Regnerus’s criteria was...

Days of Our Lives - Will and Sonny 10-29-2012


Monday, October 29, 2012

There is the reality of sexual orientation that we've all experienced, and then there's the fantasy version that people like Linda Harvey cling to. Their fantasy is much more important to them than real people, and they're willing to hurt real people, including children, in order to keep their fantasy.

They can call it Christianity if they want to. They can claim we're attacking their religion i
f we criticize them. But, in my opinion, they are truly hateful and destructive people.

I don't think they're merely confused or misinformed. Not people like Linda Harvey. In my opinion, people like Linda Harvey are gutless psychopaths who don't have the nerve to go out and do the dirty work themselves, so instead, they send out shock waves of hostility hoping that they'll inspire their society to move toward genocide.

My houseboy. He keeps the place spotless. :)

All Four Anti-Equality State Campaigns Run Misleading ‘Parents’ Rights’ Ad: The campaigns against marriage equality in Maryland, Maine, Minnesota, and Washington are all running some variation on an ad featuring David and Tonia Parker, a Massachusetts couple who in 2005 objected to their kids learning in school that same-sex marriages existed.
