Fighting LGBT Laws that Punish People

We may still struggle here in the US, but elsewhere the situation is still far more dire.

NAIROBI, Kenya — Gatura Gatura was watching Black-ish late one night when her neighbor came over to her apartment and asked to borrow a lighter. As she turned to find one, he asked if her girlfriend was home. Gatura, who was getting ready to begin her second year of law school, told him no; though they lived together, her girlfriend was a DJ and had a gig that night.

The next thing she knew, he had pinned her to the ground and started beating her. Her back was hurt from where she’d been thrown against the floor, her face was swollen from the blows, she had scratch marks on her chest, and she was left with a permanent scar on her lip from where he forcefully tried to kiss her. If Gatura hadn’t screamed, she doesn’t know what would have happened next.

But almost three years after the events of that night, her neighbor has never been prosecuted for what he did.

Gay ‘cure’ therapist had sex with patients

FURTHER proof that those who hate LGBT the most are the ones who are deepest in the closet.

Dr Melvyn Iscove, 72, was registered as a psychiatrist with the  College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, and claimed to be able to ‘cure’ patients of ‘same-sex attraction’.

However, Dr Iscove – who was described as having a “special interest in the treatment of patients with problems related to homosexuality” – was handed a suspension this week for having sex with patients.

The committee alleged that Iscove,  who believes homosexuality is a “sexual disorder”, engaged in “mutual masturbation and oral sex” with two male patients during sessions, and had anal sex with one male patient.

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.

LGBT History: The Slide

I think this year I’m going to delve more into LGBT history. Not just The Stonewall Riots, but lesser known events in other areas of the country. If you know of something I should cover, please let me know.

As moral as the general public has tried to be over the centuries, we who love someone of the same sex have always been around and no matter what anyone does to us, we continue to rise like majestic phoenixes out of the ashes. Several months ago, a friend of mine recommended that I tune into a podcast called The Bowery Boys because I love history and they cover the history of New York City from its days as a Dutch colony right up to the present. These guys have over 250 podcasts as well as some blog posts that cover bits of history. One such post I recently read is about New York’s notorious “fairy resort” – a place called The Slide. They discuss this club as part of an analysis of the accuracy of the limited television series The Alienist.

You can read about it here and I hope something else will grab your attention on the BB site and you can learn more about NYC.


American Suing US Gov’t For Denying Her Child Citizenship

This seems rather convoluted, but why wouldn’t the woman from Italy simply become a naturalized citizen of the US?

Allison Blixt was standing with her wife, Stefania Zaccari, at the counter of the US embassy in London when a member of staff started asking her whose eggs were used to make their first child, Lucas.

It was 2015, two months after Lucas was born, and the beginning of an interrogation that would leave Blixt stunned and lead, this week, to a landmark lawsuit.

The official told her that despite Blixt being a US citizen, despite her and Zaccari being married, and despite both of them being named on Lucas’s birth certificate as the parents, because Blixt did not give birth to Lucas – and Zaccari, an Italian citizen, did – she could not register him as a US citizen.

It would mean they would never be able to return to Blixt’s home country and live as a family. The same would not have been the case, she told BuzzFeed News from their home in south London, had she been in a heterosexual relationship.

New Year, New Look

Okay so I’ve decided that with the new year there should be a new look. Unfortunately, this won’t happen all at once. I think I’m happy with the new look so far, but I know there are a few tweaks that need to happen. Please bear with me as I continue to find the right look for me and something more readable for you.


Make America Gay Again

This is brilliant. Cheers to whoever these neighbors are!!

The residents who live next door to the Colorado home where Vice President Mike Pence is staying with his family for the Christmas holiday posted a rainbow “Make America Gay Again” banner. They placed the banner on a pillar that is at the end of both homes’ driveways, according to the Aspen Times.

“You couldn’t miss it,” Pitkin County Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Buglione said of the sign that was reportedly hung by the daughters of the couple who live in the home. The people who live next door apparently were a bit apprehensive about hanging the banner in front of the law enforcement and Secret Service officers that were stationed there. “He was real sheepish and thought he might be confronted by the Secret Service or deputies who’d tell him he couldn’t do it,” Pitkin County Sheriff Joe DiSalvo said. “When they said, ‘We’re not here to control your free speech rights,’ they came out with chili and began feeding them.”

Formula 1 Driver Yells at Nephew on Instagram

It’s one thing for you to disagree with how your sibling is raising her/his child. It’s one thing for you to disagree with allowing one gender to wear the clothes of another. But it is Super Assholey of you to yell at a child and then post it on the Internet for millions to watch AND IT NEVER FUCKING GOES AWAY. Lewis Hamilton is the ultimate lowlife asshole scum.

Lewis Hamilton, the reigning Formula One World Champion, has yelled at a small child, mocking him for wearing a princess dress.

Hamilton, 32, took issue with his nephew’s Christmas present – to such an extent that he shouted at him on camera.

And then he uploaded the video to his 5.7 million Instagram followers.

Because when you loudly mock a child for dressing up in a costume which just so happens to go against gender norms, you want the whole world to see – apparently.

I Cried Today

I cried today
and at first I didn’t know why.
Then I realized
Christianity destroys families.
It forces a man to hate his own
flesh and blood until it’s too late.
It forces a man to lose a daughter
to suicide and rob him of the chance to change.
Although I should condemn this man
for being so full of hate,
instead I feel sorry.
He looked lost.
He looked scared.
He realized in his heart it was too late.
He couldn’t bring his daughter back.
He couldn’t love her the way he should’ve.
He could only do the right thing
and stand up to a man that hates
people like his daughter and call them
Now all I want to do is reach out to him.
