FREE! “Everyone’s A Freak to Someone” Sticker – Just for Being a Freak!

September 04, 2009 By: jaysays Category: Commentary, Featured, Thought of the Gay

THIS OFFER HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED – NO STICKERS LEFT.

freakIn a recent post on Pam’s House Blend, discussions turned to Lil Mama’s “apology” for making the following statement to transgender “America’s Best Dance Crew” Contestant, Leiomy:

Leiomy, come on. Your behavior … it’s unacceptable … You were born a man and you are becoming a woman. If you’re going to become a woman, act like a lady … It gets too crazy and it gets confusing.

Lil Mama issued an apology and TMZ had an article advising it’s readers of the apology.  The readers of TMZ were not pleased about the issuance of an apology.  One of the comments, as published on Pam’s House Blend, stated:

I’m so sick of this….now we have to apologize to freaks of nature. FU to all you Fwads that want to call me a hater. This thing is a freak. End of story!!!! We live in such a PC society we have to say sorry to every whack job that’s out there. [via Pam’s House Blend:: Thursday This & That: Open Thread, emphasis added by jaysays.]

I loathe the use of the word freak.  LGBT people are even guilty of using it to refer to one another, i.e. “Those freaks snorting coke and having sex in the bathroom of the club…,” or “that freak dude in the dress…”.  These are comments I’ve overheard from our own people!

In response and in an effort to be proactive, I’m giving away jaysays.com “Everyone’s a Freak to Someone” bumper stickers in hopes of reminding people that we are all different – we are all “freaks.”  To obtain your sticker, just answer this question, “Why are you a freak?”

Order a NOM Sticker to Support LGBT Equality!

August 17, 2009 By: jaysays Category: Commentary, Featured, Thought of the Gay

National Organization for [Heterosexual Only] MarriageMaggie Gallagher and her National Organization for [Heterosexual Only] Marriage are campaigning to:

Recruit 2 Million Americans to Stop the Repeal of DOMA.

The campaign includes an offer of a free heterosexual-only marriage sticker, which seems like a bit of a rip-off of CREDO’s free marriage equality sticker.  NOM’s sticker reads:

Don’t Mess with Marriage!

Recently, a few folks on twitter have been attempting to get members of the LGBT community to order the stickers – in mass.  The theory being that NOM will be delayed in fulfilling the orders, exhaust a significant amount of their advertising budget and many people who support oppressive laws will not get the stickers they believe in.

Of course, the question comes up, “What to do with the stickers once we have them?”  Some have suggested a sticker burning party, but for me, I try to avoid any symbolic burning since it was done to our people for so very long.  I do have a chipper/mulcher/shredder that will handle the destruction of NOM’s message of heterosexual superiority just fine though and certainly, by the time I receive my sticker, I can think of hundreds of ways to destroy it and release my angst over their attempts to involve themselves in my life.

What will you do with your sticker?  Once you’ve ordered your sticker, please feel free to send me any pictures or video of your method of destruction or link to them in the comments here.  Hopefully, we will get lots of responses and be able to send a message to NOM – Love conquers all.

ORDER YOUR NOM STICKER NOW!!!! – I’ve ordered mine!
