A gay teenager who wanted to turn his high school graduation into his own personal coming out party didn’t get to do that.
The school says Young didn’t submit a revised version of the speech and that a graduation speech is not the time for a student to “push his personal agenda on a captive audience.”
Seriously, a high school graduation is a sufficiently grueling ordeal as it is. (Except for my last son’s. In an out in an hour, well done!). And it’s really not the place for politics. Indeed, I would suggest we need fewer politics in our public space, not more. Also, let’s face it, there are people who like to make everything about themselves; we need less indulgence of that, too.
And by “social conservative” I mean paleo-feminist Germaine Greer. [From Breitbart]
Feminist commentator Germaine Greer has criticised Elton John for calling his partner David Furnish “mother” of their two sons.
Speaking at the Hay Literary Festival, Greer accused the men of “deconstructing motherhood”, criticising them for the fact that Furnish was listed as mother on their children’s birth certificates.
Oh, speaking of transgressing heteronormative structures, a gay couple who used to be “father and son” are now “husband and husband.” [Hat Tip: Steve the Commenter]
It’s almost like words don’t mean anything anymore.
The Government thought it would be fun to finance a study to help schizophrenic Lesbian Gay Bullying Totalitarians [LGBT] deal with the oppression of convenience store clerks.
The National Institutes of Health through its National Institute of Mental Health has awarded $52,293 in taxpayer funding to the Toronto-based Centre for Addiction and Mental Health to study how to reduce discrimination of lesbian, gay and transgender people with schizophrenia by members of the community they are in frequent contact with, like the “convenience store clerk.”
Oh, the crippling austerity. When will it end?
You know that study that was very much hyped by the left-wing media that purported to show that gay activists could change the minds of people on gay marriage just by a few minutes of subjecting them to lame slogans and hackneyed talking points about “equality” and such. (I am sure it was copy-pasted into the comments here multiple times.)
It was all b-llsh-t.
In what can only be described as a remarkable and swift series of events, one of the authors of a much-ballyhooed Science paper claiming that short conversations could change people’s minds on same-sex marriage is retracting it following revelations that the data were faked by his co-author.
The study received widespread media attention, including from This American Life, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, Science Friday, Vox, and HuffingtonPost, as LaCour’s site notes.
The Left-Wing media are retracting their previous stories based on the study, the authors are going into Hillary mode (Questions from the press? No thank you.) But I am curious what happened to the thousands of dollars in grant money that supposedly went into a study that apparently faked all of its survey data.
If you’re a deranged, foaming at the mouth, hatred-besotted leftist like Dan Savage, Rick Santorum’s comments on Bruce Jenner will leave your monitor flecked with spittle.
“My responsibility as a human being is to love and accept everybody. Not to criticize people for who they are. I can criticize, and I do, for what people do, for their behavior. But as far as for who they are, you have to respect everybody, and these are obviously complex issues for businesses, for society, and I think we have to look at it in a way that is compassionate and respectful of everybody.”
Not exactly, “I wish all trannies would just drop dead.” Dan Savage said that about Republicans and received widespread public opprobrium. Just kidding, the George Stephanopoulos network gave him a TV show to spew his anti-Catholic bigotry.
So, these two gay dudes bought some land in rural Pennsylvania, hoping to set up some kind of gay spiritual technology-free utopia of some sort, expecting that other gay men would want to come live with me to live communally and simply. It didn’t work out so well.
They did get a few takers: a man who was interested in the culture of the early German settlers, but preferred to observe its customs rather than pitch in; a guy they called “the Primitive man,” who set up a lean-to on the property and wore loincloths in the summer (he stayed the longest but turned out to be mentally ill).
Then there was the man who brought his accordion and offered to play while they worked. Indeed, the farming chores seemed to mystify most of their would-be brothers.
“Everyone just wanted to watch us work, and that got old real fast,” Johannes said.
“Not wanting to do any work,” is why a lot of left-wing utopias fall apart. They also tend to attract the mentally ill.
Personally, I love the idea of going off the grid. I have often considered buying a remote piece of land and living simply on it. My son is into the idea, but other members of the family… not so much. If I did, though, it would not be in the expectation of establishing any kind of “community.”
On a related note, gay amish romance novels are apparently a thing. I did not know that.
According to the 2010 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, 44 percent of lesbian women and 61 percent of bisexual women have been victims of intimate partner violence in the form of rape, physical violence and/or stalking, compared to 35 percent of heterosexual women. In the same survey, it is mentioned that 26 percent of gay men and 37 percent of bisexual men have experienced the same intimate partner violence, compared to 29 percent of heterosexual men.
For too long, lesbians (and transwomen, I guess) have felt excluded from the deranged rape hysteria among campus women. But now, LGBTQQIP2SAA activists are working on their exclusivity so that lesbians can join in the National Campus Rape Hysteria Movement as well. And Lesbians will have equal opportunity to falsely accuse partners of rape and get all of the consequence-free revenge and celebrity that goes with that.
Since so many leftists think that “Hate Speech” falls outside first amendment protection, it’s important to remember that under their rules, they get to define what “hate speech” is. In Maine, apparently, just wearing a Chik-Fil-A is considered anti-gay hate speech.
During the high school’s televised announcements that morning, two students on the broadcast wore Chick-fil-A T-shirts, Snyder said.
The students didn’t say anything about the Gay-Straight Alliance or the school’s LGBT community, but she believes they knew what they were doing.
The appearance started a flurry of tweets, with students calling out the two boys who wore the Chick-fil-A shirts.
The tweets continued over the weekend, and on Monday students who tweeted at the boys wearing the shirts were called to the high school principal’s office.
Students were told they were being punished for tweeting during school hours, and because some of their tweets contained obscenities, [one of the suspended students] said.
[One of the suspended students] responded to a tweet in support of the students in the Chick-fil-A shirt that said, “You’re expressing your feelings … Why can’t he?” Her response was, “Being an offensive [expletive] is not expressing your feelings.”
The LGBT Community is doing a great job training young people to behave like fascist brownshirts.
Ace asks in response to the media’s response to an attempt by Mohammedans to commit mass murder at an art exhibition deemed “offensive” to Muslims. The media are blaming the (would be) victims of the attacks; “Of course, we’re not justifying the attack,” they say just as they’re about to justify the attack. “And, of course, you have free speech, but if you offend Muslims, they’re an ornery and violent people. So, maybe you should show more respect to the Muslim faith.”
Meanwhile, anti-Christian expression runs rampant through the gay community, whether it is the obnoxious “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence,” or “Hunky Jesus” competitions. Or this…
Now, Christians being tolerant, put up with this sort of stuff all the time. But suppose some Christians did shoot up or bomb an anti-Christian art festival. Would any of these, “Yes, Free Speech, but…” leftists be saying the victims had it coming to them?
Can you imagine anyone in the mainstream media saying, “Maybe you should show more respect to the Christian faith.” Ever? Under and any circumstances?
She is very proud to have a state-provided forum to indoctrinate youth to believe as she believes.
A lesbian teacher ‘married’ to another woman revealed at a pro-gay teachers’ conference earlier this month how she teaches grade 4-5 students to accept homosexuality through what she called “social justice” math.
Alicia Gunn, an elementary public school teacher in Mississauga, Ontario, told attendees at the April 10 conference in Toronto’s City Hall that injecting LGBTQ issues into the classroom, especially in math, helps students as young as nine “disrupt the single story that many of our kids have about LGBTQ families.”
Social Justice is so much more fun to teach than boring old multiplication, division, or fractions.
She is also very, very proud that she has taught her special snowflakes to be hypersensitive, over-reactive, and prone to outbursts of meaningless outrage.
“My one group was really upset by people not being upset,” Gunn related. “They were saying, ‘The fact that only 5.6% of non-LGBT kids care when they hear these things, that upsets me.’ One of my boys put up his hand and said, ‘I’m one of those people, and I’m extremely upset.’”
Speaking of gay math.
Democrat Homosexual Clay Aiken, upon losing (once again) to Amnesty-lovin’ Republicrat Renee Ellmers, kept it classy, as we have come to expect from the H8 Party. (Hat Tip: Yid with Lid)
Aiken appeared on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio show on Monday to promote his Esquire Network docu-series “The Runner-Up,” which follows his failed congressional campaign.
“You should see the second episode, because she’s a b—-,” Aiken told Stern, referring to Ellmers.
“She’s an idiot,” Aiken said of the 51-year-old lawmaker, “And I think her self-esteem is just in the floor, under the floor.”
Speaking of classy moves, a closeted politician was outed by his Grindr hookup. If I may be uncivil, what a sleazy dumbass.
Larry Kramer is one of those ancient, radical gay activists we’re all supposed to be so grateful to for having the courage to come out and make gay obnoxiousness socially acceptable. He’s also a big part of the reason gay activism is such a hotbed of nuttery. Anyway, he’s just written a book claiming that pretty much every major historical figure is gay. George Washington was gay, and not only was Abraham Lincoln gay, but John Wilkes Booth assassinated him as part of a lover’s spat. Sic Semper Sodomy!
Why is that not in the history books? Because all history books are written by straight people, and they don’t wanna either admit that, or they wouldn’t know how to recognize what we call ‘gaydar.’
Kramer says it took him 40 years to write his 800 page history book that spans from pre-historic america all the way to the 1950s.
‘It’s called a ‘novel,’ but that’s just to keep the lawyers away from me,’ Kramer said.
‘I believe everything in the book is true. Everything in there happened,’ said Kramer who has long wanted to write a book on gay history.
Obviously, the Patriarchy is uncomfortable with a gay man expressing his identity on the job.
Two Transportation Security Administration screeners at Denver International Airport have been fired after they were discovered manipulating passenger screening systems to allow a male TSA employee to fondle the genital areas of attractive male passengers.
“He related that when a male he finds attractive comes to be screened by the scanning machine he will alert another TSA screener to indicate to the scanning computer that the party being screened is a female. When the screener does this, the scanning machine will indicate an anomaly in the genital area and this allows (the male TSA screener) to conduct a pat-down search of that area.”
Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
Is this real? This can’t be real. No, this can’t be real. I refuse to believe that this is real. Not even gay lefties can be this creepy and deranged. This seems like something a serial killer would do, as one commenter put it.
It’s the “the world’s first and only gay object.”
Meet the Gay Sweater, an apparel item knitted from the hairs of more than 100 LGBT kids.
I also don’t think it was the world’s first gay object. It was preceded by, among other things: the Princess Phone, Doc Martens, the Water Tower at Eastern Michigan University, Zima, and the Mazda Miata.
In the interest of diversity and intellectual open-ness, may I present one Buttercup Dew; a young man thoroughly disillusioned with the left’s multicultural, socialist, anti-Western indoctrination.
It was around this time I was coming to terms with being a flaming homo, so I frequented the gay bars around the place. I saw a lot of working class, masculine white men in their 30s and 40s, standing around with their thumbs metaphorically up their asses while the DJ blared out “Tragedy.” The contradiction between the male reality and “third gender” leftist fantasy about homosexual men was made very apparent to me at that time, so I never really bought the gay identity that the Left was selling. Nor did I buy the Multicult fantasy that my university town was “twinned” with Bumfuck, AK47ville, Islamistan, so this all fueled my intellectual journey to White Nationalism. It opened a window to an identity I belonged to innately, and gave me a greater purpose than sulking beside a rainbow flag. The music and ideology of White Nationalism projected an ideological shield around me that I was part of racial folk movement that was very remote, and vastly superior to, the nancy-pampy filth that surrounded me.
It’s almost as if the Progressive Left’s rhetoric about “inclusiveness” and “diversity” could be seen by some as a veiled effort to marginalize white people.
I came out of the university with a mountain of debt, a disillusionment with Culturally-Marxist Enviro-Crap in every shape, and a barely contained existential crisis. It was at this point I started My Nationalist Pony. I grappled with finding an identity and gloomy employment prospects, and was sustained by two things: White Nationalism as a temporal power, and My Little Pony as an emotional, visionary power. I immediately recognized My Little Pony as a white racial folk analogy, and began to read further and further into the alternative right. It was at this point that my real intellectual formation began.
An increasing number of millennials can relate to the first sentence of the above.
BTW: Have you heard that Swedish Muslims are angry about the number ’786′ appearing on license plates and want it banned. And like the good little dhimmis they are, the Swedes agreed, because that’s Modern Society’s reward for accommodating a Superstitious Medieval Death Cult.
An Oklahoma state senator has introduced a bill protecting the right of businesses to serve, or refuse to serve, anyone they choose. The New York Times ran an article in which they selectively edited his statement to make it sound like he was singling out Teh Gheys in terms of who businesses don’t have to serve.
Yes I did say that homosexuals do not have the right to be served in every store, just as I do not believe that I, my family, or anyone else have the right to be served in every private business.
Now, he and his family are getting death threats from the Gay Fascist Left.
A High School science teacher in New York City who won awards for his work coaching debate teams and was, by the way, the faculty adviser to the Bronx Science Gay-Straight Alliance, has been arrested on child pornography charges.
In a KIK conversation with another victim from upstate New York, Cruz allegedly wrote: “Can I keep asking things and asking for specific pix requests? I just want to make sure, the pics are between us, right?”
The 14-year-old boy sent a photo in response and wrote, “Sure but I still know why u need all these pics?”
Cruz said, “Can I be honest. That shirt sums up why you get to take my money. You know?”
The boy replied, “O yah lol”
Cruz wrote: “Pictures just have a huge impact on me. Seeing your feet and face and muscles and room and awards and stuff reinforce what a big deal you are.”
If he were a white Roman Catholic priest, this would be national news. But as a teacher, a Hispanic, and a gay, he is triple-covered by belonging to three protected classes. If he were a Roman Catholic, this would be a Church Scandal, indicative of a ‘culture of sexual abuse and tolerance for abusers.’ But no one would dare to suggest that the public school system or the gay community have any endemic problem with the sexual abuse of minors.
All those campaign contributions and loyalty to the progressive cause buy a lot of silence.
Ben Carson … auditioning to be the Herman Cain of 2016… said something Todd Akin-worthy on CNN recently.
When Carson was asked by Chris Cuomo whether being gay is a choice, he replied: “Absolutely.”
“Because a lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight — and when they come out, they’re gay. So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question,” Carson said.
That was a bad answer, and most people would recognize that. And a person of decency and intelligence might respond to his statement by refuting it with logic and reason, by pointing out the myriad flaws in his analogy.
But Dan Savage is not a decent person, and he is not a particularly intelligent person. He is a crude, hate-filled progressive leftist, and he responded in the manner of a crude, hate-filled progressive leftist.
SJW’s have decided the way to best facilitate the Mexicanization of the United States is to teach illegal immigrants to act as obnoxiously as gay fascists.
A recent talk at UCLA’s political science department, “Undocumented and Acting Up: Queering Sovereignty in the Immigrant Rights Movement,” drew on “the insights of queer theory” to propose that both illegal aliens and HIV-positive homosexuals are victims of “simplistic accounts of individual action.” Their “death and suffering,” according to visiting lecturer Cristina Beltrán, are unjustly attributed to their own actions—presumably, crossing the border illegally, in the one case, and engaging in high-risk promiscuous sex, in the other. Queer theory, however, understands these problems to be the result not of voluntary behavior but of “global capitalism, human desire, and government failure.”
Because anyone with a grievance is a victim, even if their grievance is the consequence of their own bad choices. And capitalism… the thing that made America an attractive place for illegals to flock to and created the wealth that permits parasites to engage in full-time social activism… is always the oppressor.
Sally Kohn… the lesbian pundit who thinks we shouldn’t be bombing ISIS because that’s what they want us to do, who doesn’t understand that its the job of the legislature to pass laws, who thinks Christians and Jews commit terrorist attacks at the same rate Muslims do, and is just, generally… a very, very stupid person, now says she hopes her daughter grows up to be a vapid, militant lesbian… just like her.
I live in the liberal bubble of Park Slope, Brooklyn, where no yuppie would ever admit to wanting their kid to be anything in particular, other than happy. But more often than not, we define happiness as some variation on our own lives, or at least the lives of our expectations. If we went to college, we want our kids to go to college. If we like sports, we want our kids to like sports. If we vote Democrat, of course we want our kids to vote Democrat.
I’m gay. And I want my kid to be gay, too.
Pretty sure Ms. Kohn would accuse normal parents who hope their kids grow up to be normal of homophobia. So, let’s just let everybody figure out the math here.
