Why are you Gay? Chicken Nuggets.

Well, folks, here’s the answer to your life long question of why you’re gay… LOL I guess only fat people can be LGBT so all you skinny bitches are pretending. Lololol

A self-published “study” claims that eating too many fatty foods can cause homosexuality or make you transgender.

Author Rita Strakosha, who says she has “an M.P.S. degree in Clinical Psychology from Albanian University”, sent the 56-page document to PinkNews after self-publishing it as an e-book on Amazon.

In the document, which she has also put up for free on her website, attempts to link homosexuality to an unhealthy diet.

It claims: “Homosexuals… [often eat] large amounts of high glycemic index foods and fat, or eating an imbalanced diet, leaning toward carbohydrates. Some studies show an increased rate of obesity among homosexuals.

“Gay men, lesbian and bisexual women report a higher odds of sugar-sweetened beverage consumption than straight men and women.

A Federal Court Just Ruled For Gay Rights

BAM! Justice Department needs to butt out of private cases.

A federal appeals court on Monday ruled that a 1964 civil rights law bans anti-gay workplace discrimination. The decision rebukes the Trump administration — which had argued against a gay worker in the case — and hands progressives a win in their strategy to protect LGBT employees with a drumbeat of lawsuits.

The dispute hinges on whether Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which bans discrimination on the basis of sex, also bans workplace discrimination due to sexual orientation.

The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday, “We now hold that sexual orientation discrimination constitutes a form of discrimination ‘because of . . . sex,’ in violation of Title VII.” In doing so, the court overruled a lower court — and a precedent from a previous court case — and remanded the case to be litigated in light of their reading of Title VII.

Mom Rants Against Gay Photographer

Once again, the ignorance astounds me. I sincerely hope that either or both of this woman’s children turn out to be gay.

People unfortunately go through a lot of mental gymnastics to justify beliefs they have that aren’t exactly sound.

Unfortunately, some people’s minds will never be changed on an issue, something that 21-year-old Alabama photographer, Faith Grace, discovered the hard way after a pregnant woman who was interested in getting some maternity photos taken messaged her.

At first, everything seemed cool, but after the mom started looking at Grace’s social media accounts, she noticed something that troubled her: the young photographer was rocking an LGBT pride flag in her posts.

Apparently, the mother couldn’t bear the thought of having her pictures taken by someone with a different sexual orientation than her, so not only did she decline to do business with Grace, she sent her a text message letting her know that she specifically didn’t hire the young woman because she’s gay.


Gay Waiter Fired After Customer Note

I think it’s bullshit to fire someone for posting a receipt’s note on Facebook, or anywhere else for that matter. It’s not like anyone’s personal information was shared. No name, no credit card information. I think hate should be called out, but corporations only look out for themselves. I mean most companies don’t want employees to defend the store or restaurant from theft, so it’s not surprising they’d not take up for someone like this guy.

A gay waiter was sacked from his restaurant job after a customer wrote a homophobic message about him on a receipt.

The restaurant, Hickory Tavern, confirmed that it had sacked the server after he posted a photograph of a receipt with the homophobic message.

Unique Father/Daughter Transgender Duo

It’s one thing to have a support network for anyone who is transgender; most people aren’t so lucky. It’s something else entirely when your parent or child goes through the same experiences as you.

Corey Maison knew she wanted to be a girl when she was 11 years old, but was scared of disapproval from her parents. Little did she know that her mother, Erica, was coming to terms with a new gender identity of her own. Four years later, they’ve become a father-daughter duo that faces every step of their unique journey with strength and pride.

Erica, now Eric, gained the courage to confront his lifelong desire to transition from female to male after watching Corey become the young woman she had always felt like inside. Just as Corey feared familial rejection at first, Eric feared what his husband and children would think. After a year of difficult conversations, testosterone therapy, and a double mastectomy, Eric feels better than ever, and has been embraced with open arms by his loving family.

Woman Surrogates for Gay Brother and Husband

Another heartwarming story. It’s a shame that with thousands of children who have no parents, no home of their own, no stability, that the system thinks that two moms or two dads are somehow worse than feeling unwanted.

It might sound strange to hear that Ashlee Mataele recently gave birth to her little brother’s baby boy.

However, on June 4, 2016, that’s exactly what happened. Ashlee, 30, watched her younger brother David, and his partner Brendan, struggle for years to have a child of their own. Adoption and surrogacy were proving to be a struggle for the same-sex couple.

David already has three children from a previous relationship, however, the moment he met Brendan — he knew he wanted to have a child with him. Brendan had always wanted a child of his own as well.

Mormon Mom Opened an LGBT Center in Provo

This is a beautiful story to read. A woman reaching out despite what her church teaches or expects her to believe and who has six children she’s trying to raise, reaches out to kids she has no connection to to help make their lives better. ❤

Stephenie Larsen is a busy mother of six. When she isn’t wheeling across town, dropping her kids off at school or sports, she runs a support network for gay youth.

Larsen opened the nonprofit Encircle LGBTQ Family and Youth Resource Center in downtown Provo, Utah, in February. The center aims to be a safe, open environment for LGBTQ people in this deeply religious community, and offers individual therapy and group counseling services, as well as a variety of daily activities.

Lesbian Couple Wins Case After Birth Father Murders Adopted Child

This is absolutely heartbreaking. For anyone, certainly, but doubly so because same sex couples cannot have biological children with one another. A third party is always involved at some level. The women’s attorney was incompetent to say the least.

There’s really no good outcome for such a horrifying story as the one a female couple in Iowa endured when the baby they were in the process of adopting — who’d lived with them for three months — was reclaimed by his biological parents only to die at the hands of his birth father. The couple, Rachel and Heidi McFarland, who sued their former lawyer Jason Rieper in 2014, alleging he acted negligently in failing to compel the child’s birth mother to sign a release-of-custody document, was awarded $3.25 million in damages last week, according to People.
