National Organization for Marriage president Brian Brown posted a photo with one of his young sons after a FoxNews appearance, and the pro-gay marriage left let loose with the hate. And, interestingly, the gay left taunts the poor kid by… asserting that he looks effeminate and might be a homosexual. Bullies and hypocrites, the lot of them.
Commenter Steve notes this article at Frontpage Mag where in left-wing gay activists cheer that the state of Iowa has reduced the penalty for lying about one’s HIV status in order to deliberately expose sex partners to HIV; a practice I believe is known as “Stealthing.” Of course, this is not enough for the Gay Left. Nothing is ever enough for the gay left. Gay activists demand that “Stealthing” be completely decriminalized because it hurts the feelings of HIV positive people and inhibits their sex lives:
HIV transmission should not be criminalized—ever. HIV criminalization laws do absolutely nothing to prevent the spread of the virus. They stigmatize HIV-positive people, dissuade people from getting tested, and undermine public health goals. They are exceedingly difficult to enforce and based on junk science. They should all be repealed, entirely, immediately.
There may be a Libertarian argument for decriminalizing HIV transmission. After all, everyone is ultimately responsible for one’s health and the choices one makes. But it is so typical of the left to make the argument that it should be decriminalized to spare the feelings and facilitate the sex lives of people who want to spread HIV.
John Hawkins at Town Hall (yeah, Town Hall, set Ad Blockers to Maximum) has a piece called “5 Truths You’re Not Allowed To Say About Gays In America.” Which seems like a topic with some potential to evoke discourse. So, here are the short versions:
- You can’t change your gender.
- Some people do choose to be gay.
- Conversion therapy is a good thing if people want it.
- Gay bullies have become commonplace in America.
- Gay scoutmasters would be more likely to molest Boy Scouts.
Let’s see. 1. I guess that depends on the meaning of “change” and “gender.” 2. Well, obviously, remember Anne Heche? 3. I would say “can be” rather than “is.” 4. Well, duh, using power to harass and humiliate those who don’t have power is the very definition of bullying and power is what the gay activist left is all about. 5. At a literal level this is true; he’s not saying it’s inevitable that a gay scoutmaster would molest a Boy Scout, but there is certainly a higher likelihood of it that with a scoutmaster who’s not into dudes at all.

Google Search says… Yes.
And now Google and the NSA know I’m a pervert.
And, wow, kudos to whoever did the Photoshop work on her cover portrait. She does not actually look like that.
Pandering to its gay left base once again, the Obama Administration is tasking the National Park Service to begin designating “places and people of significance to the history of lesbian, gay, transgender and bisexual Americans.”
Some places to consider:
- The DC condo where Barney Frank’s boyfriend ran a prostitution ring.
- The airport stall where Senator Larry Craig displayed his “wide stance.”
- The New Jersey rest area where Governor Jim McGreevey hooked up with strangers for anonymous gay sex.
- Man’s Country.
It’s been said that homosexuality is like a penis; it’s perfectly fine to have it, but if you’re constantly shoving it in people’s faces, don’t expect them to react well; even humungous gay icons.
In a new interview with the Times’ Patrick Healy, Kramer reveals that Streisand found some of the subject matter in the story uncomfortable, despite her role as an icon in the gay community.
“I said, ‘I really think it’s important that after eons of watching men and women make love in the movies, it’s time to see two men do so,’” Kramer told Healy. “I bought her a book of very beautiful art pictures of two men making love, and she found it very distasteful.”
I guess Babs will have to be sent to Tolerance Camp along with everyone else who was put off by Michael Sam’s televised tonsil hockey with his BF.
A North Dakota elementary school will not be allowing the young men and women in a first-grade class to perform YMCA at a talent show because a parent dubbed the planned performance “racist.”
And since when are six year olds “young men and women?”
Have you ever seen the “Unimatrix Zero” episode of Star Trek
Estrogen Voyager in which the Borg Queen goes nanners because some of her drones have developed independent consciousnesses outside the Borg hivemind? The Queen is so desperate to stamp out any independent thought that she starts blowing up her own ships (beginning at about 2:20 in the video) just to destroy the handful of drones who are thinking independently.
Like many people, Josh Hune loves the succulent taste of Chick-fil-A menu item No. 1, the classic chicken sandwich. Like far fewer fans, Hune also happens to be gay.
“[My best friend] told me I was the worst gay in NYC,” says Hune, 23. “But I personally don’t think my money or my going there is me saying I hate gays as well. I don’t think about it like that $7 is going to some foundation to stop gay marriage. For me, it’s just food.”
The worst gay in New York City… for eating a politically incorrect sandwich.
“I have a healthy fear of the gay mafia,” says William, a gay 26-year-old digital strategist living in Hell’s Kitchen who asked that his last name not be used due to anxiety over backlash to his choice. “But the crispy chicken is orgasmic. This sounds terrible because it’s fast food, but it’s the most tender chicken I’ve ever had.”
If he were using “most tender chicken I’ve ever had” to describe an encounter with an underage boy he picked up in a bus station, the Gay Borg would have no problem with that.
Debated whether to insert the image and then decided… um… No. But you can see it here.
The Finnish postal service, is releasing commemorative stamps featuring the art of Tom of Finland, or Touko Laaksonen (1920-1991). Laaksonen remains a towering and iconic figure in the gay art scene. His sketches, often explicit, were unapologetic depictions of gay sex and relationships. Laaksonen’s subjects were almost always muscle-bound, handsome figures, often bursting out of their clothes. His work, a meditation on masculinity, was also heavy on leather fetish imagery.
Given the Democrat Party’s ceaseless gay-pandering, (like Obama’s recent choice for an openly gay clergyman to deliver the prayer at Easter breakfast) I expect that a similar set of Robert Mapplethorpe stamps will be issued here before too long. I just hope they’re the self-adhesive kind. Nobody wants to lick that.
Today, the nation’s largest Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Pride Celebration Committee announced on its website that WikiLeaks
whistle-blowertraitor (-Ed) Chelsea Manning has been chosen to represent the event as a 2014 Honorary Grand Marshal.
Manning thanked the San Francisco Pride Committee from Fort Leavenworth military prison, declaring, “As a trans* woman, I appreciate the Pride movement’s significant role in bringing together diverse communities and elevating the public profile of the fight for queer rights. I have always enjoyed attending Pride celebrations given the opportunity, and I’m deeply honored to receive this title.”
Obviously, he was the only gay person in the military worth honoring.
Then, I remember this article from The Onion, and Bradley Manning seems perfect: Gay-Pride Parade Sets Mainstream Acceptance Of Gays Back 50 Years
Everybody, it seems, is dumping on the Arizona Legislature for passing a bill that codified what used to be a basic principle of commerce; that a business owner could refuse service to a customer if he didn’t want the customer’s business. However, that pinciple has been abrogated, and business owners can be forced into involuntary servitude; all because a few hypersensitive, neurotic gheys got their feelers hurt when photographers, florists, or bakers didn’t want to be a part of their “weddings.”
So, why don’t we just cut to the chase and pass laws making it illegal not to like gay people; with fines and criminal penalties for anyone who uses any word, gesture, expression or behavior that any gay person judges to be insufficiently supportive of his or her lifestyle?The penalties could include mandatory sensitivity training at the offender’s expense; thus providing employment to otherwise utterly useless Gender Studies graduates.
Let’s just pass a law and get all Harrison Bergeron up in this b–ch. I mean, that’s the whole point of this exercise, isn’t it? (Something tells me the gay left will *still* be whiny and miserable anyway.)
Welcome to the Community of the Empowered Oppressed, Freaks Who Dress In Rubber Woman Suits. We’ll, um, we’ll make sure you get a float in the Pride Parade right between the Transgendered Taxidermists and the Left-Handed Lesbian Leather WINC Coven.
Robert is one of a growing number of men for whom time off means time spent dressed in an elaborate body suit, complete with breasts and a vagina, designed to make them look like the glamorous women they are not.
Unlike transgender people, ‘maskers’, or ‘rubber dollers’ as they’re also known, do not feel born in the wrong body. For them, dressing up as a member of the opposite sex is a simply a way to have fun.
What’s the Over/Under on the first university to offer FWDIRWS studies? How long before Modern Family incorporates a FDIRWS as a recurring character? What is Phil Robertson’s opinion on FWDIRWS?
Is this a narcissism thing?
When I dress up, put this mask on and the wig, it’s like being a beautiful woman walking down the street. You become one of the beautiful people and you draw a lot of attention, and attention is not something I’ve had a lot of.’
Um… yeah, it’s a narcissism thing.

Imagine if an Obamacare Advocacy Group (i.e., liberal Democrats) put out an ad promoting Obamacare to blacks that featured black men and women eating fried chicken and watermelon while singing a hymn to Obamacare set to the tune of “Camptown Races.”
Imagine if an Obamacare Advocacy Group put out an ad promoting Obamacare to Hispanics that featured Hispanic men and women driving around in low-riders and picking lettuce while singing a hymn to Obamacare set to the tune of “La Cucaracha.”
Now, with those thoughts in mind, ponder this ad put together by an Obamacare advocacy group to promote Obamacare to Teh Gheys.
A lawsuit fired by a former gym teacher and coach at a posh New York private school alleges that the Athletic Director, a lesbian, discriminated against him for maintaining a traditional family life.
The discrimination suit claims that Krieger attempted to force Kenney to coach three sports — soccer, basketball and golf — even though his contract only mandated that he coach two teams.
When Coach Kenney protested about the burden of working extra nights and weekends because he wanted to spend more time with him wife and children, Krieger balked.
“We all make choices,” she said, according to the lawsuit.
Meanwhile, Kenney’s complaint alleges, “a single, female teacher faced no scrutiny when she refused to coach a third season.”
The suit claims that Krieger ran off three other married coaches who have young kids and notes that Kenney’s replacement is a gay female.
I used to be friends with an uber-feminist who, after college, went to work for a non-profit organization run by a lesbian and her partner. She told me that the constant sexual politics in the office made the job intolerable. The organization’s mission was always secondary or tertiary to keeping up with the constantly shifting alliances and vendettas that the women brought to the office.
It also strikes me as a Sign o’ the Times that one teacher gets fired for having a traditional family, another gets defended for molesting one of his students.
Michelangelo Signorile Goes Through Life With Panties Perpetually Bunched, Pearls Perpetually Clutched
R.S. McCain Reports on Michelangelo Signorile’s typically hypersensitive, overwrought response to a wee incident of what he perceives as an affront to gay political correctness.
Publicity about a relationship between 39-year-old Hollywood screenwriter Dustin Lance Black and 19-year-old British diving champion Tom Daley has inspired criticism even from some gay rights activists. Joshua Epstein, a blogger who identifies himself as a gay progressive Democrat, reacted to the Black-Daley affair on Twitter: ”He could be his father. Yuk.“
That reaction was condemned by Huffington Post columnist Michelangelo Signorile, who said only “internalized homophobia” could cause gays to criticize such relationships. “There is an undercurrent in these comments — the ‘chicken hawk’ charge — that suggests that gay men are more likely to sexually abuse underage teens, the ugliest lie about gay men out there,” Signorile wrote Friday in Huffington Post’s “Gay Voices” section. “Hardcore homophobes are predictably pointing to Black and Daley as supposed proof. But many gay men too, so defensive about the charge and deathly fearful of how it’s used, overcompensate by saying ‘yuk.’”
Signorile specifically defended sites that promote “intergenerational” gay sex. ”Some younger people are attracted to older people, and vice versa,” he wrote. “There’s even a gay website called Daddyhunt.”
Oh, there’s a website promoting that sort of thing and that makes it OK. Michelangelo, let me introduce you to Boychat; a website for pedos.
OK. So, depending on your point-of-view, a relationship between a guy who’s pushing 40 and a guy who’s too young to drink legally can run from “Yuk!” to “You go!” At least in this case, the younger man is an adult (unlike the boys who got involved with Democrat Gerry Studds, Democrat Mayor Sam Adams, and Safe School Czar Kevin Jennings). But because Michelangelo Signorile believes that any criticism of gay behavior is tantamount to collaboration with the hated Christian Right, only the latter response is considered politically correct.
The New York Times has noticed that bareback sex is a thing gay people are doing, which is breaking news from about the mid-1990′s when (according to Wikipedia) gay publications like The Advocate first took note of the phenomenon of gay men having unprotected sex and, in some cases, deliberately seeking HIV infection.
Anyway, the Times, perhaps after failing to find a celebrity to comment on the issue, goes to the next best source for information on epidemiology and behavioral psychology… an English professor from SUNY-Buffalo. Who provides this analysis:
What I learned in my research is that gay men are pursuing bareback sex not just for the thrill of it, but also as a way to experience intimacy, vulnerability and connection. Emotional connection may be symbolized in the idea that something tangible is being exchanged. A desire for connection outweighs adherence to the rules of disease prevention.
And some guys are apparently getting intimate, tangible, emotional connections 10-20 times a night in bathhouses.
It also seems that the readers of the NY Times, based on the comments, are in complete denial that this phenomenon exists, and think the author is just making it up to attack the gay community. Liberals choose to blame the recent dramatic increases in HIV infection rates on “the stigma attached to HIV.” Um, excuse me, but don’t stigmas usually make people avoid those things to which stigmas are attached?
In the real world, stigmatizing a behavior results in less of it: Which is why people don’t use the N-word in public any more and smoking has declined as a social activity. When the social stigma is removed … as with HIV infection and teenage pregnancy … you get more of those things.
Bareback sex has major health complications vis-a-vis the transmission of HIV and other STDs that contribute to the high cost of health care. Make you wonder why Bloomberg didn’t try to outlaw it. Hooking up for raw sex with strangers is at least as dangerous as a Big Gulp. Probably.
John Hayward at Human Events reviews all three. Here’s the state of play:
- Persecution of lesbian NJ server still a hoax
- Knockout Game still all too real
- and the World Health Organization (WHO) still muddying the waters about people who self-inflict HIV, as there have indeed been some cases (just nothing like half of all new HIV cases in Greece, as the WHO had originally told people).
As to the Knockout Game, Hayward links Thomas Sowell, who says:
The New York authorities describe a recent series of such attacks and, because Jews have been singled out in these attacks, are considering prosecuting these assaults as “hate crimes.” …this “knockout game” has been played for years by young black gangs in other cities and other states, against people besides Jews — the victims being either whites in general or people of Asian ancestry. Attacks of this sort have been rampant in St. Louis. But they have also occurred in Massachusetts, Wisconsin and elsewhere. In Illinois the game has often been called “Polar Bear Hunting” by the young thugs, presumably because the targets are white…
“White Girl Bleed A Lot”…a book by Colin Flaherty…documents both the racial attacks across the nation and the media attempts to cover them up, as well as the local political and police officials who try to say that race had nothing to do with these attacks. Chapter 2 of the 2013 edition is titled, “The Knockout Game, St. Louis Style.” So this is nothing new, however new it may be to some in New York, thanks to the media’s political correctness.
Sounds like a ‘social phenomenon’, to me. At any rate, many of the attacks are on video (and/or documented in police reports) and, as such, are facts that can’t be wished away.
UPDATE: (thanks Peter in the comments): The WHO has reversed itself on this:
“The [offending] sentence should read, ‘Half of the new HIV cases are self-injecting and out of them few are deliberately inflicting the virus’.”
“This was just a gross editing error for which the WHO apologises,” said its spokesman, Gregory Hartl.
Good for the Greeks! Now, if the other reports about bug chasers in the UK and the US have been retracted or disproved, that would also be interesting and please let us know in the comments.
Case study: countries’ experiences of financial crisis – Greece
Suicides rose by 17% between 2007 and 2009 and to 25% in 2010, according to unofficial 2010 data (398). The Minister of Health reported a further 40% rise in the first half of 2011…Homicide and theft rates have doubled. HIV rates and heroin use have risen significantly, with *about half of new HIV infections being self-inflicted to enable people to receive benefits of €700 per month* and faster admission on to drug-substitution programmes. Prostitution has also risen…
Emphasis added. In pursuing the cradle-to-grave Welfare State, Europe has created a society of smothering government regulation, taxes, “benefits” and controls where:
- People can no longer get ahead, or even survive, in the private economy.
- People can survive if they qualify for government-paid benefits.
Is it any wonder that economic crisis results? And that, in the midst of the crisis, some people will do anything to qualify for government-paid benefits?
To escape the trap, Europe must do the opposite. It must dismantle the Welfare State, creating a society of freedom where most people can’t get money from government, and can survive, or even get ahead, in the private economy.
The reckless practice, known as bug chasing, started in the US as a bizarre means of getting a sexual high from risk-taking.
Now, according to one man who willingly caught the virus, hundreds of men in the UK are introducing themselves on online forums, Facebook groups and Twitter.
Many then meet up and try to transmit the potentially life-threatening virus, which attacks the immune system weakening the body’s ability to fight disease.
Some bug-chasers actually claim the virus gives them a better quality of life because of the medication they subsequently have to take.
Nick, 30, an admin worker from the Midlands, said: “I feel fit as a fiddle. I feel full of energy and healthier as a result of being on my medication.
“I get my liver function tests every three months, my cholesterol tested regularly and I get loads of general health checks so if there are any underlying conditions I know straight away. Even better, I get it all on the NHS.”
Last year, 73,659 people in the UK were treated for HIV – 43 per cent of them gay or bisexual men – a rise of 58 per cent over the last 10 years.
You can read the rest.
Needless to say, such behavior is deplorable for its nihilism. It embodies contempt for self and society alike. It is anti-life.
But for these men, having their behavior deplored is part of the thrill. In thrall to sex addiction as well as their nihilism, they ‘get off’ on doing and being the worst things that their society will peaceably reward (pay) them to do and to be.
What enables their behavior is the payment: the socialized medicine. These men are partly rational. Not completely; for instance, the one man’s supposition that HIV medications are healthy is not rational. But these men have seen that a socialized (and still somewhat wealthy or ‘First World’) society will give them lots of medical care that they have not earned and do not merit.
These men have gauged, correctly, that their society will give them the best care possible, if they inflict some sort of manageable and tolerable medical condition on themselves. Consciously or not, they are ‘playing’ the socialized medical system. That is partly (not entirely) the fault of the system itself: socialized systems for private goods always warp a society’s incentives in some way, and should not exist to begin with.
Morally speaking, these men have a suicide-like ‘right’ to get HIV if they really want to; but no right to have government forcing the rest of their society to pay their way. Yet their government does force the rest of society to pay their way. And so there are enough of these men around to start making a social phenomenon of it.

By way of Michelle Malkin’s excellent website Twitchy, I’ve learned of two great hashtag nicknames for Obama and his administration in the past few days: #PresidentStompyFoot and #SpiteHouse. As appropriate and amusing as those are, in thinking about his behavior, I’ve come up with another one lately which I like to imagine is just as good: President Cha-Cha Heels.
The reference, for those who don’t recognize it, is to Dawn Davenport, the spoiled teenager in John Waters’ 1974 film Female Trouble. Although the film is one of Waters’ earlier efforts and is therefore full of the sort of rude, crude, and just plain gross humor and incidents which assured it an NC-17 rating, in some respects it is a useful parable about the evils of modern liberalism.
Here’s a brief synopsis: Dawn Davenport wants nothing more than a pair of “cha-cha heels” for Christmas, but when her parents refuse to get her any on the grounds that “nice girls don’t wear cha-cha heels,” she throws her mother into the Christmas tree, runs away from home, gets pregnant, and eventually becomes a criminal before being discovered by Donald and Donna Dasher, a couple who loves to photograph women committing crimes. They make her famous, and she becomes even more notorious as a result. The Dashers are the sort of liberals who embrace transgression as art and dysfunction as beauty, until Dawn goes berserk and then they try to pretend that they had nothing to do with it.
So what does this have to do with Obama? Well, our petulant President seems rather like Dawn Davenport throwing a tantrum because he didn’t get any cha-cha heels to wear with his Mom jeans.
As Thomas Sowell wrote in an excellent article that appeared last Friday: “You cannot blame other people for not giving you everything you want. And it is a fraud to blame them when you refuse to use the money they did vote, even when it is ample to pay for everything else in the government.”
In any case, Obama doesn’t care. He didn’t get his cha-cha heels, and so he’s determined to “walk all over you,” in the words of this catchy tune inspired by the story of Dawn Davenport and performed by Eartha Kitt and Bronski Beat:
Unfortunately, like the Dashers, his enablers in the press and the liberals who voted for him are rallying around him as though there’s nothing offensive, disturbing, or troubling about his dishonest and spiteful behavior.
