Gays Belong on Deserted Islands

In the second post exposing the stupid things people say about gays, we will analyze the following comment: Just like it’s common sense that gay behavior is unnatural. Why can’t we just put all gays on a deserted island and see how long they last? hmon20002000 (28 years old) Let’s start at the beginning, “…gay…

Connecticut to Allow Gay Marriages as of Today, November 12, 2008

Today, “Gay Marriage” took a step forward, helping to equalize the standings from the backward step of California’s passage of Proposition 8. Effective today, Connecticut has become state number two in the United States to allow same-sex couples marriage rights; Massachusetts is the only other state to allow for such marriage rights.

Why Gays Want to Marry Even Though They Can’t Reproduce

With Proposition 8 in the news, people have come out from under their rocks in droves. With that, comes numerous, sometime unintelligible comments on various websites about gay people. Such stereotypes and stupidity have only been fueled by the church. Therefore, I have started a new multi-part series regarding the stupid things people say (or type) about gays.

Gun Sales High After Obama Election – But Why?

Analysts will argue that the recent spikes in gun sales after an Obama victory are due to gun fanatics fearing that Obama and a Democratic majority Congress will restrict gun laws further. See: Obama election prompts surge in US gun sales | World news | guardian.co.uk. However, could that be the real reason, or is there a deeper?

RELIGULOUS – Bill Maher’s Film-Documentary Regarding the Ridiculousness of Religion

I do enjoy Bill Maher’s comedy and rants, and I agree with a lot of his “philosophies” (for lack of a better word). He makes very good points, but lately, I’ve found him to be less funny and more condescending – and after reading his book, “New Rules” a couple of years ago, I decided it was time to find a new comedic hero.

The Dorothy Effect

The Dorothy Effect shall heretofore be the gay equivalent of the Bradley effect. Voter’s took to the booth and, in its sanctuary, voted Yes for Proposition 8 while publicly proclaiming that the land of the free and the home of the brave treats all men equally in the eyes of the law.

jaysays.com – Let Freedom Ring (or I the Homosexual)

I woke up the morning of November 5th, 2008 feeling like I was part of the world again and went to bed feeling defeated and empty. That morning, I felt like an American and I was ready to take on the responsibility that comes with such an elusive title. But I was shown again that in spite of what we learn, we are not born American but must be accepted as Americans.

Yes We Can – An America For Change

I cried for the country I had forgotten was with me, not against me. I cried for the country I thought was dead but had suddenly risen from the grave. I cried for all the martyrs of the American Dream, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Harvey Milk, Addie Mae Collins, James Chaney, Brandon Tina, Jonathan Daniels, James Byrd and the multiples of others who died because of the color of their skin or their denial of denying themselves and they stood up and said, “Yes we can.” I cried because I had given up on the USA and no longer felt the pride I had felt so many years ago to stand up and salute the red, white and blue. I was both proud and humbled.

Alex Okrent’s Blog: Equality is a Moral Imperative

I suppose some would complain that since the election has heated up, I’ve covered too serious of topics, forgetting my ordinarily laugh at the world self and instead substituting for more serious topics (hence the “seriously”).  Well, this post is no exception… seriously. Some will remember President Elect Obama’s (no I don’t think I’m being…

Obama’s Plan for America – Equal Rights and Exclusionism

We all know President George W. Bush has been noted for hi antics while intoxicated, be it on alcohol or other substances, but did you know about Obama’s history with narcotics?
