Weibo Walks Back LGBT Ban

Power of the people! LGBT content should not be lumped with violent content.

China’s Weibo, the popular Twitter-like microblog site, has said it will not suppress LGBT content as planned, following a public outcry.

Thousands of Weibo users protested a three-month “clean-up campaign” that would have targeted LGBT content along with other subjects deemed obscene.

Over the weekend, people used hashtags like #Iamgay and #Ihavegayfriends, and many shared selfies and personal stories.

“My son and I love our country. No matter where we go, we always proudly tell people that we are from China,” wrote a Weibo user in Shanghai who said her son was gay in widely-shared post.

iPastor: Masturbation is Gay Sex

Hoooooooooo boy! Religion is stupid.

A notorious internet pastor has warned men not to masturbate because it’s “sex with a man” and that’s gay.

High school football coach and internet pastor ‘Coach’ Dave Daubenmire, who has a surreal online following, made the comments on his ‘Pass the Salt’ livestream.

You’ve just got to say no to it, as hard as it is. If you’re very honest about it, masturbation is homosexuality.

“You’re having sex with a man. You’re putting images of a woman in your mind, but you’re having sex with a man.”

Art Teacher Fired for Being Gay

It’s a shame that one ignorant parent can destroy someone’s career. I’m glad that there are others standing up for her; others that see this woman’s true value. With so many art/music/writing programs being stripped by the government, teachers like Mrs Bailey are vital to the development of children. LGBT teachers are not interested in indoctrinating children in their lifestyle as we all understand we’re born as we are. Except transgender people. They were born in the wrong body.

Former students and parents from an elementary school in Arlington, Texas, say they are devastated a beloved art teacher was suspended after she told students she was married to a woman.

Stacy Bailey, who twice won teacher of the year at Charlotte Anderson Elementary, was suspended last September after the district “received complaints from parents about Ms. Bailey discussing her sexual orientation with elementary-aged students,” according to a press release from Mansfield Independent School District. The suspension was first reported by the Dallas Morning News.

“Parents have the right to control the conversation with their children, especially as it relates to religion, politics, sex/sexual orientation, etc,” the press release read.

No Real Policy Banning Trans Troops?

According to this Buzzfeed article, despite what everyone is saying, there’s no new policy set in stone. What people are flipping out over – and rightfully so – is the potential content of a policy that could appear.

When a federal judge in Seattle holds a hearing Tuesday over President Donald Trump’s transgender military ban, she will face an odd question: Does the Trump administration even have a policy banning transgender troops right now?

No, not in writing. Not anywhere, technically.

Help Tell Mike Pence to ‘Go Fuck Himself’

This is just brilliant.

The family of Vice President Mike Pence has a new children’s book coming out on Monday in which their pet rabbit Marlon Bundo explains his high-profile Washington job.

But the book, Marlon Bundo’s Day in the Life of the Vice President, is already facing some hairy competition from “Last Week Tonight” and John Oliver

The HBO host had one of his writers, Jill Twiss, join forces with illustrator EG Keller to create a “Better Bundo Book” called A Day In The Life Of Marlon Bundo.

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.
