Matt Comer calling for a boycott of a Whole Shopping Center, solely because of who owns it.

GayInc’er Matt Comer of Qnotes/blogger is calling for a Boycott of a Shopping Center because it will be own by an Anti-gay NC Baptist Convention member. Yes The Elevation Church is buying The Matthew shopping center.

Because of this Matt, wants all of Charlotte LGBT member to boycott the center, in essence blaming the shop owner for who owns the property..

Facebook www.facebook.com

so what does his Facebook Followers thinks of this? ( no names will be shown)

one don’t know why a man of God need a shopping center. Another wonder how many meals $10.2 million can feed. However this one is right on point,

The businesses at the shopping center have no control over who owns the property, and they certainly don't have any control over the religious viewpoints of a church. Boycotting those businesses does nothing but hurt the people who own them and work there. Boycotting them is about as silly as the now-defunct boycott against Disney World because of Gay Days.

so what was Matty’s reply,

feel free to give your money, however inadvertent, to a church that assists in advocating against your civil rights. I'll have no part in it.

Most shocking is the support from another LGBT activist.. for this action

Businesses tend to be more cautious about getting into politics than tax exempt churches. Some boycotting and protesting never hurts when they start getting in bed with bigots

HRC throwing Trans-folks, and rights under the bus once again

According to a report from The Texas Observer the Human Rights Campaign says it’s probably not going to help defend the embattled  Equal Rights Ordinance. ordinance recently passed in Plano, TX because according to HRC it’s transphobic citing that an exemption that would bar trans individuals from using restrooms, according to their gender identity but would provide protections for them and LGBT citizens in the area of housing and employment discrimination.

HRC’s Cathryn Oakley told the Observer:

“The language in Plano is very problematic and in terms of investing a lot of resources in an ordinance that has a lot of problems, it’s difficult to see why that’s necessarily the best use of resources. If we had been consulted in the drafting of this bill, we would have withdrawn our support, and given that, it’s hard to justify defending it as valid. ..

“I think the story coming out of Plano is about a city that really wanted to do the right thing, and I wish that this had unfolded differently, because I think that there were good intentions, but things fell apart. I think incremental process is important, I think municipal work is incredibly important, but incremental doesn’t mean leaving part of the community behind. That’s not an acceptable version of incremental.”

WTF: Going on in King, NC

First off I don’t subscribe to any religion, you can call me an atheist if you would like, but I consider myself as an Agonistic. I don’t care one way other the other, but this is just wrong, the elected officials in King, NC should have fought this in court..

You’re fragile and words give you ouchies

Facebook www.facebook.com

Phil Labonte, who has a history of controversial comments about gays, is stirring the pot again by saying LGBT people don't have a “legit grievance” concerning slurs.

This the best part,

“Seen a lot of brouhaha on the interwebs about the revolver article. Of course lots of people are saying I should be beat up or killed or I should kill myself. So, basically the blogs n commenters on said blogs are saying this, ‘freedom of speech, so long as you don't offend me.’ So these people are of the same mindset of the people who said the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris were justified because some things are just too offensive. I fully understand that to some people it is offensive to hear the word ‘faggot’. I get it, you’re fragile and words give you ouchies. But remember what you’re asking for when you decry protecting the freedom of speech.

I love it, telling it like it is. Gayinc is fine with free speech, till you say something that they don’t like or want to hear..

Hypocrite be thou name

Yes, funny isn't it. He blocks people who don't share his views and those who don't buy his brand of bullshit.

Just like Jeremy Hooper

You Got to be Fucking Joking.. Pay to Pee???

AirPNPVia Entrepreneur:

Airpnp is banking on the idea that people are willing to pay to pee and rent their toilet out to desperate strangers. Described as the Airbnb for toilets, the app allows users to search for available toilets at homes and businesses in the area and find out the price to use these establishments. According to the company blog, Airpnp started as a "quasi-joke" in early 2014, built around the concept of how difficult it was to find a place to pee while celebrating Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Within the first three weeks, more 300 bathrooms were added to the map. Airpnp locations range from toilets owned by entrepreneurial masterminds to kindhearted people offering a free place to relieve yourself. Antwerp, Belgium is extremely popular, covered in pins marking what must be the vast majority of places in the city where once can pee for free.

Really, what next???

ACT UP once again to Protest HRC..

On Sat Jan 31, join ACT UP to protest HRC (Human Rights Campaign) at their annual gala honoring Fortune 500 companies. While HRC dines with the 1%, a 35+ year HIV epidemic rages on in our LGBT community, still cutting many LGBT lives short.

Health officials warn about the recent sharp increase in HIV infections among young gay men and transgender women, especially among communities of color. We need our national LGBT orgs like HRC to shine a spotlight on HIV and AIDS until the epidemic is over for all populations, especially our most at-risk LGBT people.

HRC has created an LGBT equality index to score the Fortune 500 companies, but there’s no mention of HIV and the thousands of LGBT people with HIV in the workplace. We demand that HRC include several criteria to evaluate companies on their treatment of employees living with HIV, as well as their contributions to organizations and causes relate to reducing the incidence of HIV among LGBT Americans, particularly among the young. For over 30 years, too many have been fired, harassed, outed and discriminated against at work for having HIV.

Also at this gala, many of the corporations that HRC will honor actively work against the interests of middle-class and poor Americans, including people with HIV. ACT UP denounces this frequent practice of ‘”pinkwashing” whereby corporations with policies and practices that undermine the people’s well-being are given positive publicity in exchange for maintaining LGBT-friendly (or just equal) workplaces. This is short-sighted and divisive. We demand that HRC develop other criteria that takes into account the impact of companies’ policies on every American, not just LGBT Americans.

ALL ARE WELCOMED TO PARTICIPATE!

WHAT: ACT UP Protests HRC Gala
WHERE: Waldorf Astoria (301 Park Ave — Meet at 49th and Park)
WHEN: Sat Jan 31 from 5:00PM – 8PM
ATTIRE: Street Fabulous
BRING: Pots, Pans, Signs, Props, Noisemakers, and Signs
DIRECTIONS: Take the 6 to 51st St or the E,M to Lexington Ave and 53rd St

Why, well, over its extremely flawed (and in most cases bought) Corporate Equality Index and the fact that it gives high scores and honors to Fortune 500 companies that actively work against the interests of middle-class and poor Americans, and the thousands of LGBT people with HIV in the workplace.  

See at HRC everything is for sale, if you donate large enough
