Does It Matter?

Does It Matter?

My parents asked me if I am gay
I said, "Does it matter?"
They said, "No, not really."
I told them, "Yes."
They said, "Get out of our lives."
I guess it mattered.

My boss asked me if I am gay.
I said, "Does it matter?"
He said, "No, not really."
I told him, "Yes."
He said, "You're fired, faggot."
I guess it mattered.

My friend asked me if I am gay.
I said, "Does it matter?"
He said, "No, not really."
I told him, "Yes."
He said, "Don't call me your friend."
I guess it mattered.

My partner asked, "Do you love me?"
I said, "Does it matter?"
He said, "Yes."
I told him, "I love you."
He said, "Let me hold you in my arms."
For the first time in my life something matters.

My God asked, "Do you love yourself?"
I said, "Does it matter?"
He said, "Yes."

How long can we ignore this epidemic. How many more boys or girls will turn to violence after being taunted, abused, beaten and rejected for their real or perceived sexual orientation after having no one to turn to after years of socially and religiously accepted and encouraged psychological terrorism?

There are been school bulling and abused since school were started way back when. The only different today is that the Parents are not Parenting, since there are so many laws that makes it virtual impossible to discipline our kids today's society.

Name calling has been done to all, the heavy kids called fat, the kids with glasses called four-eyes, those that was called nerd, geeks, freaks and so. Kids would go home and talk to their parents, which hardly ever happens now days, in most cases because Mommy and daddy are never home with them.

We are now see what happens when you spare the rod.

Who will be the Last 3 delegates

What will the last 3 delegates of the Mr Gay World be and what will they look alike

Separate but Equal

Separate but equal is a set phrase that systems of segregation giving different "colored only" facilities or services with the declaration that the quality of each group's public facilities remain equal. The phrase also came from the article written by an anonymous person in 1869. The article titled "Separate but Equal" was about how people had equal rights but were separated because of race. via Wikipedia.

I wonder is the gay movement separate by equal?

I wonder this because of a piece I read tonight on Advocate.com. I was bit bore and decide to read past Commentary. The Commentary was written by Jasmyne Cannick, it was written back in July 2006. I guess if I call her a reverse racist I would be wrong and out of order, right.

Let me get this straight, no pun intended. Individuals who are not from black communities—and know little to nothing about our community and for the most part aren’t even remotely interested in really working with our community—know how …

Transwoman and her boyfriend murdered in Indianapolis

Two Indianapolis residents were killed over the holidays. While details aren't definite, it would appear one or both individuals were specifically targeted. If the double slaying is a hate crime, nothing will be done about it. Indiana doesn't have a hate crimes law; instead we have a "hate crimes reporting" law, but there is no recourse if police departments don't report to the state. The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department stopped documenting hate crimes years ago.

Michael Hunt, 22, and Avery Elzy, 34, were found shot to death in "a bedroom." A dog in the room was also killed. While any murder is horrific, the IMPD's statements and news coverage of the homicide have been particularly heinous. Once again, Indianapolis is proving to the LGBT community that our city isn't sensitive to our concerns, lacks basic knowledge of our needs, and could absolutely care less.
I wonder if they could have been targeted for another reason. However the L…

What is your take on the Mr Gay World

Image
You be the Judge, Do these 21 delegates of the Mr Gay World contest all look alike, and do these really represent the whole community?

To me they all fit the cookie cutter image. Seven of the twenty-one don't fit the twink image. They are all young, there are a few that is over 30, shocking isn't it. However I feel the LGBT isn't fully counted for.

During the stage competitions and particularly in the personal interviews, the jury will focus on the delegate who:
shows an interest in the world and people around him;
displays patience, has a compassionate and considerate nature;
embraces change, or things and people different from his own frame of reference, experience or cultural background;
can articulate his thoughts and conduct an intelligent conversation;
has a basic innate charm and sparkle;
is special, and authentic;
has poise and is secure with himself, without coming across as arrogant;
is the ambassador that his nation and local community is proud of;
can be a diplomat of goo…

A Day at the Park

Today was a great day, nice and warm, so I went to the park to try out my tri-pod that I got for christmas. These are so of the pictures I took today.

Why not North Carolina??

Image
I visit the Phelps site today as I do at least one a week to check on there up coming protests. Each week I hope to see a listing for North Carolina, one in which I might be able to attend and photograph these nuts. I once thought about getting a paintball gun and paintballing them. Just to see what they would do.

I have notice that they don't seem to ever be coming to NC at all. I would have to wonder why that is?? I mean we have military bases here, and I'm sure somewhere we are doing so play or event that they feel they need to speak out about.

I wonder if there isn't another reason why they chose to stay out of NC.. If anyone knows a reason please share it with me and the rest of the state..

My partner and sister got me this new camera strap for me this christmas. I have debating whether I should get it or not for the last two months.

"People will soon 'start to thank this president for what he's done.'"So says Condoleezza
I don't know what she has been smoking but I think she has lost what brains that she had.

NATION-WIDE Campaign to appoint William White as Sec. of the Navy

--------------------------------------------
IMMEDIATE ACTION - PLEASE HELP!
--------------------------------------------

1. JOIN this event.
2. POST it to your profile.
3. INVITE all your friends, straight and gay, to help shatter a glass ceiling.
4. JOIN the Equal Rep group: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=37627939486

------------------
BACKGROUND:
------------------

In more than 200 years, the United States military has never included an openly gay chief. Growing national focus on GLBT civil rights has therefore made the Secretary of the Navy appointment a national issue in the struggle for equal representation. Also, it highlights the antiquated policy of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" which needs to repealed.

----------------------------------------------
QUALIFICATIONS & ENDORSEMENTS:

William White is the most qualified candidate for the job.

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has named the main qualifi…

Another Gay for Pay Model makes it big

Image
Over at Ecoralguy, blog, which is a personal blog with porn images.
I find it funny how many of these models started in porn under their porn names, then make it big and hen deny that it was them in the first place.

Gay for Pay, according to Wikipedia,
is a term used more commonly with male (and, less frequently, female) actors, pornographic stars, or sex workers that identify as heterosexual but are paid to act or perform gay professionally. The term has also applied to other professions and even companies with the same core concerns and criticism in place. The stigma of being gay or labeled as such has steadily eroded since the Stonewall riots began the modern gay rights movement in 1969. Through the 1990s, mainstream movie and television actors have been more willing to portray homosexuality, as the threat of any backlash against their careers has lessened and society's acceptance of gay and lesbian people has increased.

In the gay pornography industry, which uses amateurs as w…

Who is using Who?

I would have to wonder just who is using who in this relationship, Madonna could be using him to make her self feel young again and for wild passionate sex, or he could be using her to advance his career, Being seen with Madonna could help him out far more then he helping Madonna with her to get off.

Has any been to this site "Beyond the "Shades of Gray""

this is another Ex-gay site, the so called person also wrote this on lifetime.com, on Prayers for Bobby,
Click here, If so Please share your thoughts in the comments section.

I'm also very interested to see this movie, as a person who successfully abandoned his homosexuality as a sexual-addiction, by facing up to the real underlying issues that caused such an addiction in me, and then dealing with those in legitimate, non-sexual ways.

You see, I view homosexual behavior as a sexual drug that is used to mask the pain of a deeper issue. And, for me at least, same-sex attraction (SSA) had absolutely nothing to do with sex! It had everything to do with those deeper relationship issues from my youth. I've met many other men who found out the same thing that I did, and also abandoned homosexual behaviors. But I've yet to see the movie that would dare, today, to approach this subject with any balance of truth and hard facts toward that reasoning. And so I'm also very skeptical…

The Year of the Rat, thats me

What does your Chinese Zodiac say about you? Well this is my, very interesting..

Being the first sign of the Chinese zodiac, rats are leaders, pioneers and conquerors. They are charming, passionate, determined, tenacious, charismatic, practical and hardworking. Rat people are endowed with great leadership skills and are the most highly organized, meticulous, and systematic of the twelve signs. Intelligent and cunning at the same time, rats are highly ambitious and strong-willed people who are keen and unapologetic promoters of their own agendas, which often include power, wealth, and status. They are energetic and versatile and can usually find their way around obstacles, and adapt to various environments easily. Quick-witted and sharp-tongued, Rats enjoy arguing, debating, and contesting other people's opinions. They are forthright, sometimes even tactless, but the Rat's natural charm and sharp demeanor make it an appealing friend for almost anyone, but rats are usually highly…

"A couple of boys were calling my best friend a faggot one unhappy day at summer camp. Courses of action seemed slim to my adolescent mind. I could stand up for Jack branding myself a fag as well and insuring myself a miserable summer, or I could join in with the name callers, lose my closest friend, but assure my standing with the majority. I sacrificed my friend on the altar of popularity. I don’t think I need to tell you that political expediency was a terrific short-term solution but a long-term nightmare. My summer concluded uneventfully but none of those boys became my friend or did me any favors. And forty years later I still feel the loss of Jack along with a piece of my self respect that I can never win back. Mine was an act of cowardice and betrayal.

No Gays in the Cabinet, Surprise, Was it another lie from Obama

LGBT Americans were hit with yet another piece of bad news Thursday -- no openly gay people will be appointed to President-elect Obama’s cabinet.

Less than 24 hours after the announcement that antigay pastor Rick Warren would be giving the invocation at Obama's inauguration, reports surfaced that Rep. Hilda Solis is the incoming president’s pick as secretary of the Labor Department. The Labor and Interior posts having been the only two positions left for which openly gay qualified candidates were still in the running, LGBT leaders conceded that no out person will be seated at the cabinet table.

“It’s now clear that President Obama’s top appointees will gather in a cabinet room that does not reflect the living rooms, board rooms, or rooms of worship across this country,” said Chuck Wolfe, president and CEO of the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund.
Was this just another lie to get us to vote for him, he chose a few openly gay candidates knowing full well they would not be appointed.

SNT: Enough about Rick Warren

You do realize that you are helping him to get all this attention don't you. Many didn't know who he was then this shit hit the blogger spere,

What else did you except to happen after he got into office. Obama is a Politician. A person who is taught to lie and to kiss the asses of the rich. Everyone should have known that Obama only used the gay community, just like Clinton did 16 years ago. He learn how to speak what we wanted to hear from Clinton.

Now he is showing his true colors as we are piss, but we also should have excepted After all he is a damn politican, who might have took Political science, which is nothng more than a history book on how to lie and what lies works the best.

Now like usual we are bitching and whining about Rick Warren and his damn homophonia,we are helping this bigot to get air and national exposure.

Enough already, Obama isn't going to chance his damn pea size mind.. Just deal that another damn democrat used us to get into office.

Gang rape of lesbian, a questionable hate crime

(San Francisco, California) Police in Richmond, northeast of San Francisco, are hunting four men accused of the brutal kidnapping and gang rape of a lesbian. Investigators have appealed to the public for help and have posted a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrests and conviction of the men.

Police said that the 28 year old victim was confronted by the four as she got out of her car on December 12. She was beaten, raped and robbed. When the attackers heard someone approaching they forced the women into her car and made her drive to a desolate area where the attack and rape continued.

Police said that during the ordeal the men made a series of homophobic remarks. Investigators said they believe the men realized the victim was a lesbian because of a rainbow sticker on her car.

If the men are caught they will face a hate crime charge on top of charges of rape, assault with a deadly weapon, robbery, carjacking and kidnapping.

The men escaped in the victim’s car. She was …

NYC man who claims cops sodomized him to sue

(New York City) A tattoo parlor employee who claims he was assaulted and sodomized by New York City police officers has filed papers to sue the city and the police department.

Michael Mineo says he was attacked Oct. 15 in a subway station. Officer Richard Kern was charged with aggravated sexual abuse and assault; fellow Officers Alex Cruz and Andrew Morales were charged with hindering prosecution and official misconduct for allegedly covering up the crime.

All three pleaded not guilty.

Mineo filed a notice of claim in the first step to filing a lawsuit against the city. He seeks $200 million in damages for permanent and severe injuries.

First off even he knows he want get that much, he will be lucky to get about 5 million if lucky after his blodd sucking lawyer gets 40% of what ever he is awarded.

As politically incorrect as this is going sound, I feel it needs to be said. The white gay community needs to go somewhere and just STFU already and let Obama get into office.
Well Ms Un-PC Jasmyne, you have said a mouth full this time, so please allow me to the same, Since we now have a Black President, all african-American need to go somewhere and STFU about slavery and being profile while driving black...

This is just a shortlist about Rick Warren, and the Obama-gate crap.No matter what we do, Obama has made up his mind to have this asshole speak at the Inauguration, We can bitch all we want but we should have known that once he got into office he was a complete 360 on every thing, He used us just like Clinton did. Guess what it worked didn't it. Now he will soon be office and has to make good on all those promises that come with those big $$$$$ donate from fat cats.

SNT: Students holding hands, would be disruptive to the school

"A student-produced newspaper at the Academy for Arts, Science & Technology [in Myrtle Beach] was banned from being distributed last month after students failed to clear an editorial advocating same-sex marriage with the school administration. The principal of the academy near Carolina Forest, Ronnie Burgess, said that he was concerned that the editorial, which was printed on the front page with a picture of two male students holding hands, would be disruptive to the school. 'I had some concerns about the content of the article and how it might impact students here and what the community concerns might be when the article was distributed,' Burgess said. 'At the academy we encourage diversity, we don't look to silence student voices, we hope to facilitate their expression.'" [Myrtle Beach Sun News]Who would have guess that holding hands would so be so disruptive? I thought that a known serial rapist on campus would be more disruptive, or finding out th…

The First College to Banned Rotc

Pitzer College in Claremont, CA, Pitzer's faculty-student college council passed a resolution April 12, 1990, banning future ROTC (Resident Officers Training Corps) scholarships and credit for military science classes, effective the fall of 1991. The resolution stated: "Pitzer College has taken this action out of the conviction that the current policies practiced by the ROTC, which discriminate against gays and lesbians  in military service, are unconscionable and are in direct conflict with Pitzer's commitment not to discriminate on the sexual preference."

Prayers for Bobby- on lifetime- will you be watching

Image
True story of Mary Griffith, gay rights crusader, whose teenage son committed suicide due to her religious intolerance. Based on the book of the same title by Leroy Aarons. This is set to air on Jan 24, 09 on lifetime.
In "Prayers for Bobby," Mary Griffith is a devout Christian who raises her children with the conservative teachings of the Presbyterian Church. However, when her son Bobby confides to his older brother he may be gay, life changes for the entire family after Mary learns about his secret. While Bobby's father and siblings slowly come to terms with his homosexuality, Mary believes God can cure him of what she considers his 'sin' and persuades Bobby to pray harder and seek solace in church activities in hopes of changing him. Desperate for his mother's approval, Bobby does what is asked of him, but through it all, the church's apparent disapproval of homosexuality causes him to grow increasingly withdrawn and depressed. Guilty over the pain he i…

WASHINGTON (AP) - President-elect Barack Obama on Thursday defended his choice of a popular evangelical minister to deliver the invocation at his inauguration, rejecting criticism that it slights gays.
But Obama told reporters in Chicago that America needs to "come together," even when there's disagreement on social issues. "That dialogue is part of what my campaign is all about," he said.
Obama also said he's known to be a "fierce advocate for equality" for gays and lesbians, and will remain so.
Hope is for not getting caught for backstabbing those who got him elected. Not in office yet and the backpedaling has started.

Does Obama = Clinton

Said Obama, via TPM:
"Well, let me start by talking about my own views. I think it is no secret that I am a fierce advocate for equality for gay and lesbian Americans. It is something I have been consistent on and something I intend to continue to be consistent on during my presidency...What I've also said is that it is important for America to come together even though we may have disagreements on certain social issues...And I would note that a couple of years ago I was invited to Rick Warren's church to speak, despite his awareness that I held views entirely contrary to his when it came to gay and lesbian rights, when it came to issues like abortion.. ..Nevertheless, I had an opportunity to speak, and that dialogue, I think, is a part of what my campaign's been all about, that we're never going to agree on every single issue. What we have to do is create an atmosphere where we can disagree without being disagreeable, and then focus on those things that we hold i…

Rick Warren, A Question of Free Speech

From Pam's houseblend
Rick Warren:Oh I do. I just... For five thousand years, marriage has been defined by every single culture and every single religion - this is not a Christian issue. Buddhists, Muslims, the Jews, historically marriage is a man and a woman. And so I'm opposed to that. And the reason I supported Prop 8 really, was a free speech issue. Because if it had.... First, the court overid the will of the people. But second, is, there were all kinds of threats that if you... that did not pass, then any pastor could be considered doing hate speech if he shared his views that he didn't think homosexuality was the most natural way for relationships. And that would be hate speech. To me, we should have freedom of speech. And you should be able to have freedom of speech to make your position, and I should be able to have freedom of speech to make my position. And can we do this in a civil way?so now its either with us or against us, So if you support prop8 you are a big…

State: It's Discrimination Photographer Refused to Shoot Gay Ceremony

Image
By Andrew Webb
Copyright © 2008 Albuquerque Journal; Journal Staff Writer
The state Human Rights Commission ruled this week that an Albuquerque wedding photographer discriminated against her would-be client by refusing to shoot a same-sex commitment ceremony.
Vanessa Willock filed a civil complaint with the labor department's Human Rights Bureau in 2006, saying Elaine Huguenin, co-owner of Albuquerque's Elane Photography, told her in an e-mail that she only photographed "traditional" marriages and would not photograph same-sex ceremonies.
In an order issued Wednesday, a panel of commissioners ruled that Huguenin discriminated against Willock based on sexual orientation and ordered Elane Photography to pay Willock's attorney's fees of $6,637.93.
An attorney for Huguenin promised to appeal in state District Court, contending the commission violated Huguenin's constitutional rights to practice her religion.

GOP budget plan: Slash $10 billion from schools

The GOP budget plan would raise $6.5 billion of new revenue for the general fund and reduce spending by $15.6 billion over the next 18 months, about two-thirds of it from K-12 schools. The proposed cut in education is far deeper than Schwarzenegger and legislative Democrats have called for in separate plans for reducing the deficit.

how nice every time they over spent and rise their pay, and when they need to cut items out of the budget, why do they always goes to education first. Hell at this rate why have schools at all. It seen every year they cut more and more from the school budget.

The country has a reading literacy rate at 98% of the population over age 15, while ranking below average in science and mathematics understanding compared to other developed countries. In 2008, there was a 77% graduation rate from high school, below most developed countries.

The U.S. Department of Education has no formal plans to compete against China on similar initiatives at this time.

I have many friends already registered as delegates in this contest to whom I can't wait to see again, and look forward to making new friendships…

Random Quote

Let's agree with the opponents today, just for the moment, and say that homosexuality is a choice. Well, one may also consider religion a choice. In the last millennium, Jews were told: 'Being Jewish is a choice. Become a Christian and we won't kill you. Go kneel -- go kiss the cross,' but they would not. Why? Because the way we choose to love the divine is part of our very essence, part of who we are. Just as who we choose to love is part of our very essence, our humanness. Today, we look back in horror at that time, at that treatment of people because of their religion. In this millennium, we are learning to look back in horror at racism and discrimination based on gender. And even though we will lose this bill today, I believe in my heart that in the next millennium we will look back in horror at this smug failure to do what is right on behalf of all people.--Sheila Kuehl

Hobbies: Internet, communication, education, parties, people, business, design, photography, movies, music, swimming.
Profession: Sales Director
Zodiac: Leo

Statement: I would like to take apart because I would like to travel to Canada, I would like to meet my old friends from Mr. Gay Europe and maybe to make new friends. I think I can talk to people well and somehow I can convince them about my views. And I would love to use this skill not only in business but also in other parts of my life that could actually help equal and gay rights. Well we have another cookie for the Mr Gay World, for a group who pride themselves on diversity, then why are all the delegates basically the same, only provening my point in the our community you don't count if you don't fit the community standards. So were is our community equaility????????????

On the lookout for a blackberry (tom's balckberry)

Image
[Cruise...] has lost his BlackBerry, National Post columnist Shinan Govani reports. After Cruise did a full-hour interview with "Entertainment Tonight Canada," his people called the studio asking if anyone had found the gadget. "A search was done, but, nada," Govani said. "So, basically, someone in Toronto has Top Gun's crackberry."
What can I say, I hope who ever have found this berry, post everything to the web. Who knows maybe there will be some very incriminating photos. That would be nice wouldn't it. What about those who's who phones in Hollywood,and those in the church. many be a few number to some personal body attendants??

I just hope the person or persons who may have this berry doesn't blackmail Tom, over what they might find on this berry... Could this berry hold the long asked question about personal life and his church life..

Question? Do scientologists have alter boys?????????????

YouTube Boycott December 19th 2008 (Blackout)

I support this

Other way for them to tell you, you don’t count unless

How nice, if you decided to go to this event and want to mingle with the VIPs you must spend more, that right for addition one hundred dollars you can get a gift bag which is most case are always donated, then you get to mingle with the selected celebrity at the after party. However if you really want to be treated like a pampered snob just buy the two thousand dollar ticket.. Then I guess you much even be able to shake hands with these so-called celebrities….

GLAAD Action Memo

Glaad is calling us to action against the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, over their ad in the New York Times. They are claim this type of Ad/opinion piece shouldn't be in the New York Times Paper. No matter what Glaad thinks or I this Group has the right to post this opinion if they wish. Yes, if they want to make their bigotry known to the world so be it.
Many could same about many of our community ads, and opinions. Which by way almost always contain half naked men and women, which are suggestive in a sexual nature? Who is really to judge what is right and what is wrong, is any body's guess.
Personally Glaad has stuck their noses in where is doesn't belong so many times it's not funny.
Now for the "what if"?
What if they applied this standard to us, when we place ads and opinion in national newspapers and local ones as well.
