NC Counter Protest, and Comment

Ok first off I was trying to be funny when I wrote the boxer comment, However I do welcome some help and every now and then, and thanks your comments and your Corrective Criticism.


With that, said let's talk about the NC4Marriage Rally that will be happening the 3rd of March. I wrote about this on face book and some blogs that we should do a counter protest, one person agree and wrote it on Queers United blog.

Please join/help SickNTired to mount a protest or counter-protest at the North Carolina state capitol building! "We" all around the world need your warm body and shoes in the streets to demonstrate that "we" are not afraid, and "we" will not be going back, and "we" will continue to move forward no matter what our self-declared enemies do or say. The point of no return has been passed, het supremacists and het exclusivists. "We're" not going to take it any more.
I have notice that our local leaders and community blogger are …

Bigot Tammy Fitzgerald

This is the main bigot that we need to show what we will not just stand by and let this happen..

Dayton Mother Caught Breast Feeding and Driving - News Story - WHIO Dayton

I can't believe this woman would do this. But then again what these women do these days would blow anyone's mind.. What she need to do was pull her damn ass over and then feed the child.. if the in question is the one with her on the couch, Yes there is a video interview with her, that child could have had a damn bottle.. this women need to spend 180 days in jail, maybe she would learn something.

Is HRC fleecing the LGBT Community??

Back on 11 of February, I wrote this Post on my blog concerning the NC HRC Gala Dinner. This really got a local activist's boxers in a bunch or his tighie whities stained, which lead to this post. This was about the cost to attend this event. Well After watching a few of the HRC videos on YouTube, I saw that they held an event in NY, well after watching the clip I went to NY HRC Page for their dinner info.
Here I'm bashing the Organizers of the NC HRC dinner for fleecing the local LGBT community, when the NY LGBT member were really getting fleeced to attend one of the many HRC events, I now have to wonder just how much these event cost in CA, or better yet in DC to attend.
In NC it was $175, while NY it was between $400 and $600 dollars to attend on two different levels, the NY had more speakers then NC.
However, I still stand by my statement that the cost is to keep most of the community out of these events. Where those whom are well off and flat out rich don't have to…

Glaad on Reality TV Wifes,

Image
The season finale of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Orange County last week upset many fans when it aired uncensored the slur “homo,” uttered by housewife Tamra Barney as an insult. Barney has now reached out to fans and the LGBT community with an apology: “I wish so badly that I could take it back.”

After hearing from constituents about the on-air defamatory comment the day after it aired, GLAAD contacted Bravo immediately. The cable network moved quickly and a spokesperson confirmed that day that the slur has been edited from future airings.
Oh my, Glaad is piss this time, a so-called Reality people use the word Homo, and the editor didn't edit it out completely. I guess Reality is just too much for GLAAD.. But I would like some clarification on something. Glaad said they responded after hearing from constituents.

Ok, I don't watch this show, so what was exactly said, was it "that fucking homosexual, that fag,". If it was just homo or homosexual then just how is th…

I guess I've really did piss in someone's corn flakes this time.


When I said that we would soon to be enslave, I wasn't talking about our pass slavery type. I wasn't talking about forcing people to do manual labor. I was talking about economic class. There are three types of these class, Capitalism, socialism, and communism, we here in the US, work and play under the Capitalism flag, while Russia was once a Communism is more a Socialism country now while China is more a Communism country.


This is what I was talking about, when I said we would be enslaved. Those who are free shall be enslaved while those who are enslaved shall be free.


Let's look at these Classes shall we,


Capitalism is an economic system in which wealth, and the means of producing wealth, are privately owned and controlled rather than commonly, publicly, or state-owned and controlled. Through capitalism, the land, labor, and capital are owned, operated, and traded by private individuals or corpora…

SNT:WTF, Why don't we justmake every damn crime a fucking hate crime

Image
Safer Communities Act Introduced in NC House 2/19/2009 - Rep. Pricey Harrison (D-Guilford) introduced the Safer Communities Act, House Bill 207, yesterday. The bill would expand North Carolina's existing hate crimes law to include age, gender, disability, sexual orientation and gender identity or expression. Equality NC is working with Rep. Harrison to support this bill. Rep. Pricey Harrison is leading the effort for an inclusive hate crimes law. "Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender North Carolinians continue to be targeted for hate crimes, but our state law fails to provide the protection afforded to other classes for acts motivated by sexual orientation or gender identity," said Ian Palmquist. "It's time for the legislature to address this issue."

Rep. Harrison is joined by Representatives Verla Insko (D-Orange), Tricia Cotham (D-Mecklenburg) and Rick Glazier (D-Cumberland) as primary sponsors along with 12 co…

SNT:first Correction, but not complete

The reply that will lead to correction and another complaint.
Sick... Turn your attention to http://www.hrccarolina.org/awards.html and look under Scholarships and Dinner Fellowships.

And I expect a clarification and correction to your past inaccurate reporting. You know I'd do the same if I had reported something wrong.
Yes I did find where they do give reduce tickets

HRC Carolinas also offers those with limited income to apply for the "Dinner Fellowship" to attend the Gala. The Gala committee strives to involve populations in this annual HRC fundraiser, regardless of level of income and other differences, and offers a limited number of fellowships to those individuals that demonstrate need and would not otherwise be able to attend the dinner without financial assistance. Those receiving the fellowship can attend the Gala dinner at a reduced dinner ticket price.
However I feel if this was true they would have located this information on the ticket page. I can only guess…

GLAAD on the NY Post cartoonist

"Sean Delonas has a history of defamatory work and we stand with those who decry this recent cartoon as unacceptable and a vicious portrayal that neither enlightens nor entertains. It's unacceptable that the New York Post continues to provide a platform for such instances of hateful defamation."
-- GLAAD President Neil G. Giuliano. The organization launched a Call to Action yesterday around the cartoonist's history of homophobic strips to parallel the racist "chimpanzee" toon he's currently in trouble for.
Yet if this was about any other group Glaad wouldn't have said a damn word.. Glaad just need something to bitch about and get their sorry ass name in the paper..

If you don't like it, then fine, just don't view this artist's work then or don't read the Post.. Then you won't be offended at all..

If this was about the Pope, Glaad take would be completely different wouldn't it.

Sick -- HRC Carolians gala also offers reduced pricing for those who need it. They also offer free entry to college students. However please note that on this page there say nothing about reduce tickets, except for the Federal club member, 100 off, limit two tickets,

Notice how much more you have to paid for a Premium table for ten, $2500.00 yet at $175 per person that would be $1750.00, so to get this table you have to pay additional $750.00, what do you get for this, better coffee, big shrimp cocktail dish?

This Gala is nothing more then a way to rip off the LGBT community. This is Event is only a money making scheme by the HRC..

by the way

CHARLOTTE — With a star-studded attendee list including some of the most well-known movers and shakers in the Carolinas LGBT community, the 2009 Human Rights Campaign Gala returns to Charlotte once more before heading to North Carolina’s capital city in 2010.

Tyra Bank show

I would like to thanks Joe MY God, Good As You, and the Towleroad for showing just how petty we are as a community. The Tyra Bank show only showed that we have the same problems as the Heterosexuals do.

This is why I feel our community is fuck up it's not funny. We want the fucking world to see as happy care free people whom have lots of money so we can travel, buy high cost, but low quality clothes and shoes, who can attend these sorry ass high cost Galas and events.


When we know that we have the same damn problems as everyone else. We talk a good game, but face it, we would rather have the rest of the country to feel sorry for us, and see us a victims then who we are, just average every day people who have problems just like everyone else. 


Hell at times I don't even want to be gay, but this is who I am, each one of us at sometime in our life has to decide what is right and best for us. For some of us, that could mean coming out of the closet and live their lives out in the o…

The first American novel that touch on a gay theme

Image
The Poet Bayard Taylor, publish a novel called Joseph and his Friend, that was publish in 1870. Though the novel was dedicated "to those who believe in the truth and tenderness of man's love for man, as of man's love for woman, its homosexual elements were so subtle that a heterosexual reader could easily miss them.

My take on SVPA

As I set at my computer wondering if I should attend the PFLAG Rocky Mount Meeting on the SVPA that will be held at the Edgecombe Community College here in Rocky Mount. I wonder and have to ask myself will I be able to be objective and listen to Ms Rebecca Man discuss this issue. 


It is true that I have not been in high school for a long time. Yes even when I went to school there was some type of bullying going on, Name calling is what most bullying is. Yes at times it can get physical and a fight would break out. All in all it was name calling, four-eyes to those whom wore glass, geek and nerd to those who love to study and actually love going to school. Wimps for those who would never fight back at all, let's not forget the other name we would call some of the female student. 


But we never brought a gun to school, yes there were a few knives, mostly pocket knives but they were never use against anyone in school.


I would say yes my school wasn't one of those city type schools, m…

You got Postit!!

I heard of keying a car when you are mad at the owner, but I never heard of using postit notes to do the same thing.

What was written on these notes, LOSER and YOU SUCK. I guess this person piss someone off over the V-day Weekend...

What a conundrum we have created??

From Joe. My. God
Los Angeles City College is being sued for religious discrimination after a public speaking professor refused to allow a student to complete his speech in support of traditional marriage. The lawsuit also seeks to overturn university rules on offensive speech by students.

A classroom dispute at Los Angeles City College in the emotional aftermath of Proposition 8 has given rise to a lawsuit testing the balance between 1st Amendment rights and school codes on offensive speech. Student Jonathan Lopez says his professor called him a "fascist bastard" and refused to let him finish his speech against same-sex marriage during a public speaking class last November, weeks after California voters approved the ban on such unions. When Lopez tried to find out his mark for the speech, the professor, John Matteson, allegedly told him to "ask God what your grade is," the suit says. Lopez also said the teacher threatened to have him expelled when he complained to h…

HRC Carolina Gala "not all are welcome"

About the 2009 Carolinas GALA Imagination. It’s a word that conjures thoughts of chasing fire flies in an open field, of floating bubbles in the wind, of a pinwheel in a summer breeze. Imagination also stirs thoughts of equality, of a community free of barriers, of a community free of fear.  Imagination is a trait that we all share as humans. You could call it a “human right.”

Last year, the celebration was about WE. The inclusive community of WE. WE as the power of a dedicated group of individuals moving forward toward a common goal. A goal that was once imagined by a single individual.

This year WE ask you to Imagine. Imagine the possibilities of our community. Imagine a community free of barriers. Imagine what can happen as others share the Imagination. Share your imagination on equalit…

Something I Wrote as a Comment on Q-notes

I wrote the following on a this Post at Q-notes

This is what the post was about

On March 3, churches across the state will bring busloads of rally participants to Halifax Mall, the green park behind the building where state legislators meet daily for legislative work. The rally, expected to draw thousands, is being organized by the Winston-Salem-based Return America. Berean Baptist Church pastor Ron Baity is the organizer.
After the CA lost their right to marry we took to the street, we held many protests and rallies across the US, Now NC is a becoming a battle ground state.

Though I don't want to marry and that marriage isn't a big issue with me, I know that many in our community want this, and as part of the community I will support this fight. I attend the first Prop8 protest in NC, by attending the one that was held in Greenville, NC. I took pictures of this event; I have shared these photos with many, not asking for anything in return but just the credit line. I then atte…

SNT: Rocky Mount FAcebook protest Cancel

Image
Its sad that I must say that I have cancel this event. Mostly due to lack of interest, It seem that we can gather  in number to show our support for our sisters and brothers in CA, but we can't manage to do this our own back yard. So I guess this year if the folks/bigots of NC4Marriage win, then I guess we will find our anger and do some thing about.
So we will allow this group to bus in protesters while we do thing at all. I contact to people in the Raleigh area, One said that we should have a counter protest, one another thinks we would not be able to to get the numbers need to make it a success. Yet we got the numbers to show support for LGBT community in CA, we get the numbers for a yearly pride marches, but now it seem when the Marriage is now in our own state we are doing nothing.

Instead we are ask to show up on March the 24th for the NC Lobby day in Raleigh, to educate our lawmakers, who still have the mind set of Jessie Helms.

So since I cancel my protest I will be there…

I'm all for benefits that help the community out, but this type of benefits only proves how far some will go to have a date no matter how short with someone that they find attractive, and that under normal circumstance wouldn't stand a chance getting a date with.

Well the males any way, I have only time realize that Lesbians don't have the same hang ups as gay men do. Lesbians are more accepting of each other more then gay men are.

With that said, let get to my main point, why is it that when these group have these type of benefits and galas, why do they always pick the most expense venue.

The Winner of Mr Gay World, I'm shock

Image
Yes it is true this is the winner of the Mr Gay World contest. Shocking isn't it, I mean I am shock.

Mr. Gay Ireland, Max Krzyzanowski, becomes Mr. Gay World 2009 in front of a sold-out audience at the grand finale in Whistler, Canada.
I see over the man hunt voting page they don't letting their votes poll result out yet, I would have to why.

Do we really need to know this

Jai Rodriguez Finds His Pearly White Partner Nearly forgotten about Queer Eye Jai Rodriguez has a new boyfriend. And this is news because … it's Saturday, and we're supposed to have the day off.
Do we really need to know every time one of our LGBT actors or TV Star gets a new boytoy, really Isn't this just throwing our sex life in other people faces. Inmost case this only proves that we can't keep it our pants, just look how many Lance's boytoys there have been in the last few years..

Yasmin Nair post over at The Bilerico Project

Image
I think Jacobs and Potter put it best: "...when it comes to crime, all victims are a protected group. Why should some victims be considered more protected than others?" We could also extend that, as they do, and ask: Does hate crimes legislation do anything more than punish ideology? Again, from Jacobs and Potter, "Hate Crime" is a social construct. ... it focuses on the psyche of the criminal rather than on the criminal's conduct. It attempts to extend the civil rights paradigm into the world of crime and criminal law.

Which brings me to the issue of how utterly ineffectual hate crimes legislation is in terms of addressing the very real violence against the very bodies it claims to protect. Sure, we can find more ways to document harassment and violence against transgender bodies and to put people away forever for the same. So stop by the Bilerico Project and read this post for yourself, Click here to read more.,

Freedom to Marry Week 2009 (passing on this email

Image
Dear Blogger:

This Monday, February 9, bloggers in the LGBT community and their allies will be participating in "The Only Agenda Is Love," a blogswarm in support of Freedom to Marry Week. By being a part of this effort, you will help contribute to a blogsphere-wide education campaign about ways your readers can help promote fair legislation and rescind anti-equality measures.

We hope you will take a moment to blog on this important issue. Several states, including New York and New Jersey, are poised to consider marriage equality this year. The California Supreme Court will consider the legality of Prop 8 on March 5.
We expect several hundred bloggers to participate. Please help us spread the word by putting up a short post in advance just to tell readers that the event is coming up. We're also offering some exciting prizes. For each post you write, up to a maximum of 4, we'll enter you into a contest for a $250 prize or one of three $100 prizes*.

So Glad that Q-note s will conutine to publish Joseph Urbaniak column

Image
Yes, the staff of Q-notes has decided to conutine the Joseph Urbaniak column.

I'm so glad, and proud of the staff to stand up for another person rights.

I'm also glad that Matt wrote the following,

The LGBT community says it wants equality. We should have enough conviction to stand by our words. Urbaniak committed a crime, has almost finished paying for that crime and is a member of the LGBT community. We don’t have to endorse his crime in order for him to be a part of our community. I’m constantly surrounded by people whose actions and decisions I don’t like or can’t stand (sometimes even my co-workers and best friends). Being an asshole, immoral degenerate, liar or all-around scumbag doesn’t get you tossed out of the LGBT community. Why does committing a crime automatically mean you no longer matter?enough said on that point.

MGW, bait and switch, I wonder

Image
What is the deal? I mean, really is the Mr Gay World Group doing a bait and switch in their delegates.  Yes these two pictures are of the same guy, but look how different he looks in them.  I mean its like placing a personal ad and using a old photo that show you cuter and younger then you currently are.  In the first photo, Wilbert Tolentino, who is 33 looks much younger then he does in the second photo.

My niece car crash

Image
This morning my niece was taking her sister school and her son to day care when she lost control of her of car. Also was the day that they decide not wear a seat belt, Lucky enough all three are doing. The baby was nice and safe in his car seat, My niece who was driving was knock out of the car by the air bag, she has a broken rib, my other niece has some minor cuts and will soon have on hell of a black eye, since she hit in the face by the air bag on her side..

However at times I don't wear my seat belt, mostly because when I was 18, I was in a crash where I was told if I had my seat belt on I wouldn't be writing this post now.

All is well, they are home and safe, in pain but doing good.

Why do we even listern to this crack pot.

Image
Holy shit this crack pot has claim to have found the long lost Gay Agenda, Ok guys who lost their's agenda. It's clearly states on page one not to take the agenda out of your home under any circumstance, not even if your house is on fire.

Now this crack pot has a copy, ok its time to rewrite it and completely change our course.

“You know, I’ve done a lot of reading on this,” Kern said. “I wish I could describe to you their behavior. I will not because I would be redder than this suit. It’s their behavior that we oppose.

“This theme of equality and freedom is the approach that the homosexuals are using today -- totally perverting the true intention of what our Constitution meant,” she continued. “The homosexuals get it -- it’s a struggle between our religious freedoms and their right to do what they want to do.”Ok, in the wor…

What a day it has been

Image
Well, I'm almost done with reinstalling all my programs and files on my computer, which need a new hard drive. However this leave me very uneasy.. since this is it second hard drive in 6 months. The OEM drive had to be replace after ten days I got it. I knew then I should have just took the managers offer at best buy to get another one still in the box.

I can only hope that this Western Digital Scorpio will last longer then last one.

However this drive is bigger than the replace one, When I got my computer it come with a 180 G drive, when they replace it, the new one was a 250g drive, now I have a 500g drive.

All I have to install now is my photoshop and other camera software, then I will be done. Now I have to find a place that I can get my data from my other drive.

Yes I do back up every month, however this happen a day before the back was to take place.

What to do, what to do!!!

My computer is out of service again.

Image
I'm really getting piss of at dell and hard drives makers.

When I go tmy new dell, I had it for 10 days when the hard drive went up. Now five months later my new drive goes bye bye, My last back up was last month, but I forgot to back up my document file, so that is a complete last also is all my photos that I have taken since January the 3rd.

Now I could send my had drive out to a private company and buy between $500 and $1500,00 dollar for data recovery services.

However if you own a Dell don't expect dell to help you out, however I did find out that dell is now offering in country service for an up front fee of $150, you get to talk to some one in the US, not over sea, when you can't understand them at all.
