Stupid Things People Say About Gays: Gays are the Most Vengeful, Hateful Segment of the Population

September 21, 2009 By: jaysays Category: Featured, Stupid Things People Say About Gays

Stupid Things People Say About GaysCarrie Prejean recently claimed that God chose her to stand up for her Christian values which include reducing human rights to theocratic laws.   But Carrie Prejean, in spite of all the stupid things she’s said about the gays, is not the subject of this Stupid Things People Say About Gays.

Instead, it’s one of her supporters, “ES165,” who wrote this in response to Carrie’s push for theocracy:

She [Carrie Prejean] simply disagrees with one of the most vengeful, hateful segments of our population. This is not her story, it’s about how hypocritical the extreme left and gay population are. Their relentless attacks are totally despicable.

I’ll be the first to admit that many people have said some very negative things about Carrie.  We’ve attacked her breast implants, her child pornography years and her bleach blond hair.  We’ve attacked her view point and discussed her arguments against gays (many of which were feed to her by Maggie Gallagher and friends).

But there’s something that we haven’t done to Carrie, we haven’t called on voters to make her illegal.  That is what Carrie’s message is about, it’s about legislating a group of people that don’t share the same beliefs she shares.

So, although we condemn the message Carrie spreads, remember this ES165: its the liberals who would protest along side her if her message were made illegal; it’s the gays who will best understand should voters/legislators decide that people with breast implants can no longer marry; it’s the vengeful, hateful segments of the population that would fight tooth and nail to prevent laws against Carrie’s pursuit of happiness.

After all, if you won’t fight for all human rights, you don’t deserve any.

LGBT for Uptight Straight People – No Offense, Maggie and Carrie

May 05, 2009 By: geekgirl Category: Featured, LGBT Lessons for Straight People

Carrei PrejeanMany years ago, my main mentor as a scientist taught me that “If someone starts a sentence with no offense, it means they are going to say something that offends you”.

No offense, Maggie and Carrie, but gay marriage hurts no one. Children that have gay parents do as well as children who have a mother and a father.

No offense, Maggie and Carrie, but your social views are not shared by everyone in this country. Over 50% of Americans believe in same sex marriage, another 20 to 25% believe in civil unions.

No offense, Maggie and Carrie, but your religion is no proof of how God feels about LGBT people.

No offense, Maggie and Carrie, but I would not want my child around either of you. I am straight and have been married to the same man for 32 years. We have raised our son to love and respect all people. This includes the many gay, lesbian and transgendered friends that we have. Friends that we have visited, have stayed in our home, we have stayed in their homes. Friends that we have dinner with, go to movies, go shopping, go on vacations, and just plain enjoy them for the people that they are.

No offense, Maggie and Carrie but I believe that making marriage available to everyone strengthens society and all families. Marriage is first and foremost a legal contract that protects families financially and provides over 1138 legal rights to married couples. Marriage is a social institution, presumably based on commitment, trust, love and monogamy. Sadly, straight people have done a wonderful job of destroying it’s meaning. Last, marriage is a conservative institution. It means settling down, being responsible to one’s spouse and children and persevering through tough times.

No offense, Maggie and Carrie but please explain to me how same sex marriage will hurt you. Gay couples are already living together, already having children. Marriage will improve their lives and not hurt you. The only thing that will be hurt is your bigotry, which sadly you aren’t able to see.

No offense, Maggie and Carrie, but I’m sure glad to know you won’t be offended by any of my comments.

Ms. California Joins Anti-Marriage Folks – But She Doesn’t Have Michael Phelps! A rant.

April 30, 2009 By: jaysays Category: Featured, LGBT News, Marriage Equality

Ms. CaliforniaCarrie Prejean, who will forever be first runner up to Anita Bryant for the title of Ms. Gay Hater, has joined with NOM [National Organization for (straights only) Marriage].  In a statement, she advised “I was ready to be Miss USA that night on that stage, and I was faced with a very controversial question.  I had a choice to stand up for what I believe in or to compromise that for the tiara.”

But before I go into the nuances of Ms. Prejean’s new found smear Ad Campaign and the type of support she has received from the radically reducing right, I must report perhaps the biggest bit of news regarding Ms. Prejean: She is not dating Michael Phelps as purported by her grandmother.

Now, onto the support being shown for Ms. Prejean.  A quick look at the comments posted at FOXNews.com reveals the conservative opinions that we hear so often:

I admire Carrie Prejean for her support of tradional marriage. I applaud her objection to the marriage between two men. Two men getting married is in contrary to our Christian faith. Besides I believe it creates a big social problem due to the STD, and which this liberal government has funded out of our hard earned tax money.

Wow, gay marriage will promote STD’s?  I always thought encouraging monogamous relationships through civil contractual agreements was a great way to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, but perhaps science is again wrong and religion is correct.

It does get worse; even though it seems the ill-informed and uneducated couldn’t go any farther into the dark recesses of the Forest of Lies and Distortions, another commenter suggests [using the common “gay phrase” of “You Go!”]:

You Go! People in America need to take a stand against this plague in our country. Back in the closet is where they belong. Swine Flu; Economy tanking; Homosexuals adopting babies; Etc. Etc. Keep on promoting immoral values America, we haven’t seen anyting [sic] yet!!

There are other groups that have referred to people as plagues on society based upon religion, race, color, immigration status, sexual orientation, etc.  They’ve included numerous hate groups such as the KKK and the Neo-Nazis.  It is regrettable that we see this movement of the “GOP” toward such intolerent behavior in the guise of religion – wait, wasn’t that what “The Christian Identity Movement” in eras past was all about too?

But wait, there’s more:

Good for her. It’s called freedom of speech, something gays don’t approve of I guess.

And finally, from the bed of lies they lay upon, the *cough* truth reveals itself in the most suspicious way:

I find it funny how liberals go berserk whenever conservatives speak out against something pro-liberal and call it freedom of speech/expression when they are bashing conservatives. Like it or not liberals, every American citizen (yes, this does include conservatives) has the same entitlement to free speech as you. Just because someone doesn’t agree with you doesn’t make them wrong; it’s called values. If we all agreed on everything, the world would really blow. To quote Ann Coulter with regards to liberal diatribe, ‘If you must speak to a liberal, first tell them to move out of their parent’s house, get a job, and start paying taxes.’

As a “gay,” liberal, blogger, speaker, lecturer, activist, etc., freedom of speech has been something for which I have been a staunch advocate.  In fact, I have often stated that everyone has the right to free speech, but no one is required to listen.  I have even stood up for the rights of people I disagree with because I believe that all people should have the same, equal protections of the law without exception – so to accuse “gays” of not approving of equal rights is erroneous.

If any groups have ever benefited from the freedomof speech, it is those groups that traditionalists oppress.

Perhaps even more offensive and incorrect is the idea that liberals don’t think conservatives have the same “entitlement” to free speech.  I must assume that the commenter would also argue that such entitlements apply to all rights provided by the government – including the right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”  If so, then marriage equality would be necessitated based upon the commenters own argument as marriage is legally identified, in the famous case of Loving v. Virginia which was also argued against using religious bias and lies, as a right to “the pursuit of happiness.”

While I, a liberal, fully support Ms. Prejean’s ability to say what is on her mind, to express her opinion and to do so in a public forum, I disagree with her and the aforementioned commenter that a “value” of this county is to oppress people.  If you consider domination by way of oppression a “value;” you seriously need to rethink your own morals.
