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.

The Not-So-Secret Plan to End Gay Marriage

I’m sorry. The original story called it a secret plan, but if they wrote about it for millions to read, it’s secret no more.

Two notorious TV hosts have a secret plan to end equal marriage, and apparently it’s hiding inside their closet.

Twin brothers David and Jason Benham became famous among evangelicals in 2014 when their house-flipping TV reality show was cancelled over their anti-gay activism.

The pair, hosts of HGTV series Flip It Forward, were axed after TV execs were made aware that they had long records of religious anti-LGBT activism.

Homophobic Hate Group No Longer Silenced

This story is a bit old (last month), but still worth sharing. Thanks to the man occupying the White House, every good thing done in the last 8 years or longer is undone. The man has no impulse control. Funny, though, how he can do shit like this, but We the People aren’t allowed to express our hatred/strong dislike of him. Hypocrisy is rampant in the 21st century.

Donald Trump has become the first president to address the conference of a recognised anti-LGBT hate group.

Trump addressed the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit – classed as a “hate group” – as he told the crowds their anti-LGBT views would no longer be silenced.

MS is Most Anti-LGBT State

I live in a state which shares a border with Mississippi. After reading this, I find myself not caring that the state is often left out of the narrative of hurricane coverage. With all this hate why should we remember they exist? Maybe I should feel some measure of happiness that they didn’t entirely exclude heterosexual people in their machinations.

This week, one of the nation’s most sweeping religious exemption laws, which allows for widespread discrimination based on “sincerely held religious beliefs of moral convictions,” went into effect in Mississippi. The law permits religious organizations to discriminate against same-sex couples, transgender people, unmarried couples, and people having sex outside of marriage—including single parents and heterosexual couples—in housing and employment. HB 1523 also authorizes government officials to refuse to issue marriage licenses for same-sex couples.

Scalise to Speak at Anti-LGBT Convention

This man is from my state and when I heard he got shot, I didn’t care. Still don’t care that his life was on the line. It’s just like him and all the rest of the scum representing this state to not truly appreciate the life of someone who sacrificed theirs for his. He makes me sick and very unhappy to be from the same state. That’s what all GOP assholes are like. They’d speak against a gay man or lesbian even if that person saved their lives.

Four months ago, Republican congressman Steve Scalise had his life saved by a heroic lesbian police officer.

Now, the House Majority Whip is set to speak on stage at a virulently homophobic hate group which has questioned if gay people should be executed.

Lesbian Couple Brutally Beaten by Neighbors

I’m sorry to both of these women. I’m sorry we live in a world of hate. I’m sorry your neighbors are so ignorant and vile. I hope these two inhuman women are punished to the fullest extent of the law.

A lesbian couple has been viciously attacked in front of their home by two neighbours.

Isabel Gaviria and Maria Perilla, who live in Bogotá, Colombia, were confronted by Yackeline Hurtado and her daughter Angie Hurtado.

Colombia has taken many steps towards LGBT equality in recent times. Earlier this year,three gay men married each other to become the first legally polyamorous family in the country.

You’re Gay? No Stay!

It’s unbelievable that this kinda thing can happen.

Gardiner had just returned to Vancouver and was looking for a temporary place to stay while he looked for a new apartment.

He found a listing on Craigslist for a bed in a shared space with the condition that someone staying over was an extra $10 per night. He said okay, and let the renter know his boyfriend would be staying over.

“When I used the word boyfriend, that’s when everything turned south,” Gardiner told BuzzFeed Canada.

If you troll, don’t leave a phone number around

If you’re gonna troll someone, make sure your victim can’t repay you by calling family members to inform them of what you’re doing. Clearly “David” has a lot to learn about trolling.

It’s not uncommon for politicians to receive rather unpleasant messages from people who don’t agree with their views, but this comment posted by an internet troll definitely crossed the line. However, the harassed man accidentally brought up a comeback that was brilliant: he called his grandmother to talk about the troll’s hateful comment.

Waitress Denied Tip for ‘not loving Jesus’

Christians are beyond ridiculous sometimes. Well, most of the time.

A waitress who has a rainbow tattoo on her wrist has been left a homophobic note rather than a tip because customers assumed her sexuality.

Samantha Heaton works at a Buffalo Wild Wings in Illinois and on a recent shift, she served a couple who racked up a $60 bill.

Heaton explains that she went above and beyond for the couple, and during their time in the restaurant, neither religion or sexuality was discussed.

However, she was shocked that when she went to clear the couple’s table they had not left a tip, as is the norm in America.
