Witch Linda Harvey’s empty threat to sue Truth Wins Out and their response

This was Harvey’s tweet in response to an article posted by Wayne Besen, the executive director of Truth Wins Out where he points out the witch supporting the ‘Kill The Gays Bill‘ of Uganda. I should mention, she is the President of Mission America. Do we see a pattern here?

Here is her exact words and deduce yourself whether she is advocating this shameful bill or not. Its worth noting that she is famous for her anti-gay views and I have recently posted about her urging parents not to let LGBT medical practitioners treat their kids as according to her, that might turn the kids gay.  You can read the details in this post.

“The fact they are re-criminalizing homosexuality is (a) their business, (b) it is patronizing for white Westerners to be telling these folks — they are seeing George Soros funded gay groups going into Uganda. They are all through the schools, lots of promotion to kids. Poor kids, poor kids are being offered money and favors and gifts to have sex. That’s exploitation. That’s sex trafficking. And it’s being done mostly homosexually. By Western homosexuals coming in and trying to get involved in Uganda.”

In response to the tweety threat, ‘We’d Be Delighted to Expose Her Bigotry in a Court of Law and the Court of Public Opinion,’ writes Wayne Besen   “Bring it on. We hope that such a case would be aired on television so we can expose Harvey’s vile words in a court of law and in the court of public opinion. It’s bizarre that Harvey is upset because we quoted her verbatim, which tells me that on some level she is ashamed of her own hateful rhetoric.”

Notable here, that although she didn’t say in so many words that she wants all gays killed, she did admit at a meeting in Michigan last year that she and Scott Lively worked on that anti-gay bill. We all know what the bill proposes to do if it gets approved. Put gays in prison or murdered by the state for “aggravated homosexuality” which means gays having sex on more than one occasion.

To me, that means she favours killing gays through capital punishment.

Gay 15 year old student gets beaten up

Union Scioto High School student at Chillicothe, Ohio was brutally beaten up for being gay. There is a video footage of what took place.

The student was left with a possible concussion and a broken tooth. There were by standers but no one came to help as per the victim. And as a punishment for attacking a kid for being gay, all the attacker got was a 3 days suspension.

The student informed that his attacker called him “the definition of a faggot” on Facebook. Victims mother was quoted saying “All those people who have that hate in their heart, they need to let it go. Because people are going to be who they are.”

Towleroad, which first reported the incident also reports that “Union-​Scioto has no policy in place that specifically protects students from being bullied or attacked based on sexual orientation or gender identity. The Union-​Scioto Local School District does have a policy that prohibits harassment based on sex, race, color, national origin, religion, disability, among others, but it does not specifically protect against harassment based on sexual orientation or gender identity.”

The video which was initially posted on Facebook is below. If you go through the comments section of the video, you will find one guy commenting “boys will be boys”. That kind of comment is disturbing and scary. Having a fight, or wrestling between two guys where both want to do it and just beating up someone who is not interested in picking up a fight is not being ‘ boys will be boys.’ Although both the situations are wrong. One doesn’t need to fight to prove they are men, but to beat up someone for being gay is ‘homophobes will be homophobes’.

CNN smokes out a witch Linda Harvey before Halloween

CNN called out Linda Harvey of Mission America for her statements in her radio talk show where she asks parents not to allow LGBT medical service professionals to treat their kids. Why? Because being in such close quarters with them might turn their kids gay.

http://equalitymatters.org/emtv/201110260009

If being in close contact with gays turns kids gay, I wonder how being surrounded all my life by heterosexuals, never having a single gay friend ever in my life, I turned out gay?

Below is the full monologue of her that CNN was referring to.

Latest study shows: Gays can change their sexual orientation

Here is the link to the report from Baptist Press which published the above claim.

http://www.sbcbaptistpress.org/BPnews.asp?ID=36412

While you read the report, everything looks nice and dandy and you even lean towards believing that maybe its true. Maybe it can happen.

But there are flaws which very smartly the coauthor Mr. Jones points out before anyone else can and gives justifications which cannot be taken seriously.

He himself says that people have argued that its a very small sample. He had nothing to counter the claim besides HE THINKS the find is significant.

When asked why some people were “successful” in changing their orientation where some failed, he said he has no answer for that.

He refuses to put the subjects through a visual stimulus like porn to see if they get sexual aroused or not by giving a very lame excuse of keeping the “Sexual Purity” intact.

Exodus which is well known for its notorious claims of ex-gay for half a decade now and have been denounced time and again as bogus just doesn’t know when to stop . They don’t get: that IS the litmus test. Ofcourse to them gay-sex is impure. But it is crucial to find out, do they still have the urge when they see porn, or any kind of same-sex sexual act? If not porn, in future these same people would see same sex couples kissing, or a sex scene in a movie or tv series, how will they react to those? Or is he suggesting they should not watch tv, or movies, or move around blind-folded for the rest of their lives to preserve their mental purity and not be exposed to same-sex sexual display of any kind.

Living abroad I don’t get to eat Indian food that often. Don’t see them, don’t smell them around me, so I don’t even miss them. But when I go home, the moment I take the first morsel, I realize how much I missed it. Just because I didn’t miss Indian food for 2 years doesn’t mean I grew out of them. Isn’t it similar to what Mr. Jones is claiming?

“I know individuals who have been married for 20 and 30 years after coming out of the gay community,” Jones said.

True..(although I am yet to meet one such person) but he forgot to mention that the opposite is true too. There are actually more number of “married for 20 or 30 years and then got divorced and came out as gay” kind of men. How does he explain that? I don’t need research for that, I personally know quite a few of these kinds.

So believe what you want to believe, but these are valid concerns, I feel that needs to be properly and believably addressed. Once they can do that scientifically, without bringing any religious reference, maybe I would consider this claim to be credible.

Matthew Shepard revisited after over a decade..This time, Scotland is the venue

After over a decade of the gruesome murder of Matthew Shepard in Wyoming, we are again faced with another horrifying murder of Stuart Walker from Ayrshire, Scotland.

A 28 years old gay man Stuart Walker was tied to a lamp post, brutally beaten up and then burnt to death. Whether burning is the cause of death, that has not been established yet.

Horror is all I feel after reading about the incidence. All other feelings of rage, anger, sadness, hopelessness might seep in later.

Reports of gays being jumped, beaten up, mugged, bullied, harassed are common all over the world. Gays being killed or executed are common in the Middle-east and Africa. But after Matthew Shepard I think this is the 2nd most gruesome act of hate-crime in the western world. In Shepard’s case, there was a chance, if he was found a little earlier, taken to the hospital a little sooner, he might have been saved, or maybe not. But still there was a chance… But in Walker’s case, the culprits left no room for that. His injuries are described as ‘horrific’ by the police. His scorched body was found at around 5 am in Caponacre industrial area, outskirts of town. He was on his way to attend his grandmother’s 80th birthday party.

Police are investigating the murder and trying to gather information from the neighbourhood and trying to gather any leads from the CCTV. Nothing has been disclosed yet.

Here’s to hope the perpetrators are caught sooner than later and brought to justice. Shepard’s parents forgave their son’s murderers. I am just hoping Walker’s family don’t go down the same road, instead see to it that the culprits get punished the harshest way possible.

RIP sweetheart.

Savage’s challenge to Cain…brilliant!!! Hypocrite media not so happy

Dear Herman,

If being gay is a choice, show us the proof. Choose it. Choose to be gay yourself. Show America how that’s done, Herman, show us how a man can choose to be gay. Suck my dick, Herman. Name the time and the place and I’ll bring my dick and a camera crew and you can suck me off and win the argument.

Very sincerely yours,

Dan Savage

I think its brilliant what Savage said. Although even to prove a point I would not touch Cain even with a 1000 ft pole let alone let him suck me off. If Savage is ready to let Cain do that to him, he is a way better person than I am, thats for sure. Not to mention it addresses Caines claim spot on. You can choose to be gay, then choose it for 10 mins and go and suck some guy off. Then you can go back to being straight.

And the media is ablaze about how it is crass and unthoughtful of Savage to say something like this for publicity stunt. Publicity stunt??? Really???

Savage further argues and is spot on again:

And then I’ll say this: when someone argues that being gay is a choice, he’s not just insulting gay people. (And ignoring the science of sexual orientation.) He’s insulting straight people. If homosexuality is a choice, then so is heterosexuality. Last night on CNN Herman Cain said that being straight is something that a straight person can take or leave. Herman Cain believes that heterosexuality is something a heterosexual can decide to walk away from, like a underwater house or a lousy meal. Straight people should get angry when they hear a straight person making this argument.

How true is that?

And as for him talking about the angry fuck of Michele Bachmann, She deserves worse than that. I loved Savage for that joke. Michele should be the butt of every joke for the next 5 years. Like Kathy Griffin said, Michele’s nelly self-loathing husband is her new target. And wishing a bunch of republican’s dead… hell I pray everyday that they would drop dead, all of them…Santoram, Cain, Bachmann, Perry each and everyone of them and I think a lot of others do too and if Savage just voiced what we all just think, he atleast has the balls to do so. I have no sympathy for anti-gay people. So for me, they can fall off the face of this earth anytime.

I wish there were more like Savage and less and none at all like the GOProud idiots. If LGBT community should be ashamed of someone, that should be GOProud. They make us look bad. Not Dan Savage.

I don’t know why I have a soft spot for Dan Savage. I think its because he thinks and speaks the same way as I do. The more he makes these type of comments, the more I love him. No apology, no regret, just what is true.

From Michale Bachmann, to Ann Coulter to Herman Cain, GOProud has backed up each and every one of these anti-gay politicians. Whereas Dan doesn’t sway with his support towards who looks good in the presidential campaign. To him someone who is anti-gay, is just that…anti-gay. His target stays the same irrespective of their political power. I love that of Savage. If the whole world turns against Savage, he should know there is one person who would always support him.

Not Just a Preference: A 1 dimensional article in FAB Magazine about sexual racism

At the very onset I think I should give the link to the said article so that you can have a very clear idea what I am talking about.

http://www.fabmagazine.com/story/not-just-a-preference

To my friends (not online friends), who I should mention are all straights and white, I have tons of time  said that I am sexually racist, for the lack of a better term. When I was new Canada, and they didn’t know I was gay, I have been hit on by these same people a lot, and mostly because I am brown. I have seen them going head over heals and making an absolute fool of themselves in front of black guys. They just LOVE coloured guys. Its their preference. Same way, I like whites. Being brown myself, I personally don’t have any fascination for brown men.

I don’t see anything wrong in having a preference or liking. It goes both ways. I have met guys who strictly specify they are into guys over 250lbs. In their words “bigger the better”. In the same way there are guys who want toned to muscular guys and some like lean, thin, slim guys. So no there is nothing wrong in it.

But the problem comes how you put it across. It again comes down to positive and negative choice of words.

I can write: I am into white men

OR

I can write: I am not into black men.

The latter is rude, negative and unnecessary. I personally put neither. People have been dating online long enough to recognize signals. If someone messages me, “You are hot.” and I am not really interested in him, a “Thanks bud” is enough. The person should know that its going to go nowhere and they do.

The part I had real problem with in the FAB Magazine article, I will quote here.

 It just isn’t intelligible to look at someone and say, ‘I want to reach orgasm by being fucked, but only fucked by a person of this ethnicity or race.’ The connection just doesn’t make sense. What is it about certain ethnicities or races that make it so you just can’t get off or find them sexually attractive? And how fucked up is that?” ML Sugie

I can elaborate on this. Me not being attracted sexually to black men is for 2 very simple reasons. I prefer thin lips to kiss and not very curly hair. And mostly every black man has them.

We generally tend to tabulate our preferences and likes when it comes to NSA hook-ups. For if we are choosing someone for a nights fun, I would try to find someone I like, someone who would ignite the desire and passion.

When I fell in love, he was everything I never wanted in my boy-friend. But when it is love, it doesn’t matter. Nothing matters. I had told him quite a few times that if someone had told me that I would be falling in love with a guy like him, I would not have believed. After we broke up, I went back into the hook- up world with the same preferences I had before.

GRINDR, SQUIRT, MANHUNT are not dating sites, they are hook-up sites. When I am meeting someone on any one of these sites for the sole purpose of having fun, I don’t care if he is a Nobel Laureate or a grade 5 drop out, lives in a bunglow or a shelter, as long as they ignite my desire to have fun with them.

“Changing negative descriptions into positive descriptions doesn’t change the fact that they are still requirements based on things like race, looks or gender expression,” counters Sugie. “It merely flips the statement from ‘What I don’t want’ to ‘What I require.’ It doesn’t change the content of the message, only the wording. Why is it so important that someone find a slim, masculine, hairy, buff man? Do you have some sort of vintage sling with a really low weight limit? A grand piano you’d like him to help you move after you fuck? What exactly are you going to do that requires such a specific, acrobatic person — and can I watch?”

It looks like, Mr Sugie is either very bitter for some reason about the entire hook-up thing or he just doesn’t get it. It is important that I find a slim, masculine guy because otherwise when we are in bed, I will have to resort to VIAGRA or else I will not be able to fuck. How hard is this simple fact to understand? Its about hooking up and having fun, not some charity function where you render service to whoever wants it. If he can sleep and have same amount of fun with every Tom who has a Dick in a Hurry, good for him.

Faris says, if someone asks him if he is masculine, his response is, “What do you mean by that?” Are you kidding me? Although if I get that response, I have already got my answer. Because someone who is not, would get that defensive.

Miller has an interesting proposal for driving home the point that putdowns in the form of come-ons are not welcome in our culture.

I agree.

“I want to organize a sexual boycott. Maybe if people stop getting laid they’ll realize what they’re doing is prejudiced. I don’t know why some guys only want to fuck Hitler’s Youth. I think it’s ugly, and I don’t want to reward that. Tell them that because of what they say, they’re not getting laid tonight.”

Wow…and with that one statement he just proved he is no different. Consciously or unconsciously we all choose. He thinks someone who dresses up as Hitlers youth as ugly. And I find those guys really really hot. So everyone has preferences, choices and while he wrote that, someone who dresses up that way, reading it, just got hurt.

Don’t blame only gays, straights have the same kind of preferences. They don’t go around sleeping with anyone who wants to sleep with them. They pick and choose too and so do we.

I am pretty ugly myself, not Gods best creation. So I get my own share of rejections. I am ok with it. Everyone should have their likes, dislikes and preferences, and so do I.

Don’t criticize someone for having a type, criticize them for what they type.
