I volunteered at the Salvation Army center around here a couple years ago, helping families pick out toys. It was really fun and I thought I was doing a good thing until two men came in. They were in poor shape, they wore a lot of layers and their jackets and pants had dirt and dust on them. I think they had been sleeping outside. They were coming in to get food from the kitchen, and one of the staff members took them to another room that wasn’t the kitchen. After a while, they were both escorted out of the building. I learned later that day they were kicked out because the staff speculated they were a gay couple and didn’t want to cater to those kind of people.
I can’t even look at the bellringers without being ashamed of them. They help a lot of people, but I don’t want to contribute to a group that still considers homosexuality to be condemnatory.
Aaron Hicklin’s article about why 2011 was a great year to be gay. Not one word of acknowledgement that these rights also affect bisexuals (and other sexual orientations, but bisexuality is the ‘B’ in the standardised acronym ‘LGBT’ and surely at least deserving of an acknowledgement). Note also this sentence: “the annual Out 100, a photo portfolio of 100 gay men, women and transgender people from all walks of life” - no bisexuals, then? So, were any bisexuals included, or do we just not exist? Do we never come out or live actual lives? Do we not achieve things? Do we not (at least in some cases) wish to marry our SO’s, whether they are the opposite sex or not?
This man is no better than the pigs who discriminate against all of us - and he’s the Editor-in-Chief of Out Magazine.
“Our Constitution was designed to respect states…I have long supported the appointment of judges who respect the Constitution and the passage of a federal marriage amendment.” - Rick Perry, GOP Presidential nominee
Translation: It’s ok for states to make their own decisions, but there should be a federal amendment banning gay marriage in ALL states. Reblog if you see the problem with this logic.
Logic: You haz none. D:
Maybe, with the introduction of Obamacare, we can help you get some therapy for those issues, Rick.
