SNT: Not a free speech issue, I think it is....

Image
Matt over that Q-note has written more about the county singer who was told not to come back to Reidsville..

But, we should be clear: This is not a Free Speech issue.
Let me repeat that, just for good measure: This is not a Free Speech issue.
Boswell is free to say whatever he likes, wherever he likes and whenever he likes in his private life. But when he is paid to perform, he is beholden to the desires and wishes of those who pay him. If the purchaser of his talent, in this case the City of Reidsville, decides she doesn’t like the talent or is uncomfortable with the content of his talent, the purchaser has every right of their own to choose not to pay for his talent again. That’s what City Manager Kelly Almond has done.
Ok, so the city hire them to sing for their event,

Was it written in the contact that his lyric must please all,

But he isn't the first signer we have bitch and whine about is he, a few can no longer play in clubs and other venue can they, a couple can'…

Community no longer support Community Business

Image
For the second time this year, Charlotte’s gay community has lost one of its nightlife establishments. On Oct. 27, the owners of the Charlotte Eagle announced the bar was closed, citing the economic downturn and financial difficulties.

“We have done everything we could to keep the quality and service up to the high standards we have set for the club and our community,” owners Gary Skaggs and Frank Schuster wrote in a letter posted on the club’s website. “After countless hours and dollars to keep the Eagle flying we have had to come to a difficult decision. In this current economic climate and with a landlord that was not willing to work with us we find ourselves without a choice. The Eagle is now officially closed something we tried so hard not to do but we could no longer continue to keep the club open that we all love.”

It would seem that Charlotte LGBT Community is no longer supporting our family owner businesses.. True this isn't only happening in NC, but all over the Nation.. …

Quesiton of the Day

We are so Happy that the City of Reidville kick out an anti-gay signer, all over one song.. Great Right..

Ok, what will we do if this same city decide to support NC4Marriage and sign on to deny us rights.. Will we still praise them so highly???

City bans Country performer after anti-gay lyrics
What is our problemThe above image was a comment was I going to leave on this story at Q-notes but decide to do it here instead. The above story can be found here, here, here, here, and so many other gay blogs.

Yes maybe he should add the line, but want about the other racial that was in it. you the part of not working when able you don't eat, was that a anti-African American remark, about them being on SSI and Welfare???

No let just bitch and fucking whine about gay ooops queers can't get marriage and go some where..

Lets talk about our comments on this stroy

First those comments for Q-notes
Bill, saysid Hopefully, these bigoted musicians do not have children whose young minds are being poisoned by bigotry and hatred.,
JUST HOW MANY PEOPLE HOPE THAT WE DON'T HAVE KIDS AND EXPOSE THEN TO OUR LIFE STYLES,  SINCE SO MANY OF US HAVE VERY UNHEALTHY LIFESTYLES, ALL THE PARTIES AND DRUGS AND SEX PARTNERS IN ONE NITE,, THATS REALLY …

Very Interesting Quote...

While reading the listing on Alltop-Top GLBT News, this title post caught my eye,, "What is the Gay Community"

Is the gay community the club kids at the bars looking gorgeous and dancing until dawn?  Is it the activists whose feet are swollen from walking the neighborhoods asking for people to consent to our marriages?  Is it a singles’ group, a couples’ group, an HIV/AIDS prevention network, a circle jerk, a crafts store, a bookstore, a local church?  No, those are all just aspects of the LGBTQ community.
We are not the Club Kids of Bars, however we a collections of very unique individuals, who have the same goals and mind set. In most cases we share the same ideology to some degree. I would never compare our community to a damn circle jerk or a damn bookstore.

We are who we are, and what we are need no excuses or anyone else approval.

SNT: how stupid can one be???

Image
What as happen when you can't express a personal opinion in private.. Then have some A-hole calling your local paper to bitch about you express your view..

This just in from Pam's Houseblend,

"Don't worry, they are not Red Sox fans," the broker reportedly said. "I don't care about that, as long as they are not Jewish," Tynan replied.

That line might - might - have been funny if delivered as schtick by the likes of Jackie Mason, Mel Brooks or Larry David. But Dr. Gold-von Simson, distinctly unamused, complained to her broker and reported the exchange to WNBC-TV.

The Yankees canceled Tynan's scheduled Friday appearance at the American League playoffs.

"I'm not anti-Semitic and I have never been in my life," Tynan protested, calling the incident "something misfortune, I was too stupid with my mouth."
So just who was so offend by that remark, who had to act like a whining complete total Bitch... I think we might have a winner h…

Jon Stewart Takes On 30 Republicans Who Voted Against Franken Rape Amendment

In 2005, Jamie Leigh Jones was gang-raped by her Halliburton/KBR co-workers while working in Iraq and locked in a shipping container for over a day to prevent her from reporting her attack. The rape occurred outside of U.S. criminal jurisdiction, but to add serious insult to serious injury she was not allowed to sue KBR because her employment contract said that sexual assault allegations would only be heard in private arbitration--a process that overwhelmingly favors corporations.

Mr. Leviticus Tattoo Douchbag

Image
this is from Joe My God blog, click here to visit post.
After a 15-minute march down College Point Boulevard to the sullen or unknowing stares of locals, we were shocked to find a group of 20 or so counter-protesters, PRO gay bashers, already in a pen perilously close to the park where the rally was to take place. Leading the pro-bashers was Mr. Leviticus Tattoo Douchbag himself. He and his co-thugs wore stickers in support of the jailed cowards as they shouted "Free Daniel Rodriquez!" and "No hate crime!" Among their signs was "Daniel doesn't hate gays!" Riiiight. Fortunately, there was a huge NYPD presence on hand and the two groups were not permitted to get closer than shouting distance.
So times I'm thankful for living in low volence area in the State, while other area it seem that the local LGBT community is under attack almost everyday by these bigots and complete assholes..

Now that this person below,

Just going by the looks of this guy, I wo…

Eastern NC LGBT Event set

Image
Type:Meetings - Club/Group Meeting Network:Global Date:Saturday, January 16, 2010 Time:3:05pm - 4:30pm Location:tba DescriptionThis is the second community meeting, in which I hope to build a local LGBT community group in the Eastern part of NC.

I hope the ECU LGBT student group and Pitt Community College group will get on board as well.

To work together in building a Local Community Center, however before this can happen we need to form a Local group.

Also at this meeting I hope their will be an interest in organizing and creating a Local Pride Event for 2010 in the area as well.

Intersex vs Transexuals

I love when we fight among ourselves over these issues, simply because neither side ever truly wins..

Over at Q-notes they have this great piece " A tale of two stories", very interesting, a true must read, Robbi Cohn did a great job.
Given increased press coverage trans issues have garnered over the past five years, I remain skeptical regarding the media’s ability and/or desire to report fairly and objectively. Any fiction that much of the collective press desires objective reporting or that it isn’t exhibitionistic is destroyed in the wake of the contrast between these two stories. As to ability, the misuse of pronouns and nomenclature by various and sundry publications is rampant. This is either ignorant (AP and other stylebooks have been updated for some time now), or a flagrant disregard for human dignity.
 Well Marie had this to say,
I’m starting to get tired of trans people piggy backing off of the Semenya case, it’s not the same thing to be intersex and to be transexual…

No true Lesbians.... when kids are an issue

Montana judges smack down parental rights

http://www.onenewsnow.com/Legal/Default.aspx?id=719520

Charlie Butts - OneNewsNow - 10/13/2009 6:00:00 AM

The Montana Supreme Court has granted parental rights to a non-parent.

For ten years, two women lived together in a lesbian relationship, during which one of them -- Barbara Maniaci -- solely adopted two children. But in 2006, Maniaci left her roommate and the homosexual lifestyle, and later married a man. Following the break-up, the former roommate sued for -- and now has won -- parental rights.

Austin Nimocks, senior legal counsel with the Alliance Defense Fund, tells OneNewsNow that Montana's highest court decided to uphold the demands of a legal stranger.

"What the Montana Supreme Court did was give a third party -- the parent's former roommate and girlfriend -- parental rights...," says the attorney. "And it runs contrary to clear precedent dating back several years in Montana and the United States Supreme Court.…

James B of WTF Blog is messing with NOM on Facebook

From James's Blog

They said “There’s a storm coming”
Now its OUR TURN.

Time and time again we wonder how such hateful organizations such as the National Organization For Marriage gain and keep followers (we call them sheep).

Offline, they get them in churches, but online its with social networking sites, Facebook and Myspace.
Now think for a second, they control what they want its sheep to hear offline, how do they do it online?
Easy.

They control whats permitted onto their group pages.

If you go into their group and and say you have been with your partner of 10 years, have children and would love to get married, they will erase your post…do you think the same happens to the post where you promptly get called a child molester and a pervert?
No.

Whats beautiful about this, is that by allowing this, they are breaking Facebooks “Statement of Rights and Responsibilities

Section 3.7 clearly states:
You will not post content that is hateful, threatening, pornographic, or that contains…

March on DC/coming out day..

I miss the march due to family problems, So i have been reading the blogs and viewing youtube videos of the event. I'm glad that so many turn out for this march.

I was i was tell to see and listen to Ms Shepard speak, however I see the organizers have two people a chance to speak whom I feel shouldn't.

First off what is with Lance Black, he only claim to fame is his's rewrite of the life and times of Harvey Milk, I guess he knew just who cock to suck in Hollywood. Lets not forget his home bb sex video,,

Interesting Visitor to the blog

Early today a blog visitor from New York, visit my blog,by use the following search terms "How to be gay for pay model"

This is how, be young with one of a body, who don't mind getting suck off by a guy, sucking a guy, fucking a guy, and getting fuck by a guy. Why still claiming to be str8. That is now..

The truth is many of these so called gay for pay, are at least bi, but don't what that title pin to them..

Week one of the GLBT history Icons

Image
Ok, week one of History GLBT icons from the Equality Forum is up. these are the Icons for the first week
Alvin Ailey Jr.John AmaechiTammy BaldwinJohn CageRuth EllisRainer FassbinderMichel Foucault
Ok, I would like to say, just being gay or a lesbian, should not be a deciding factors for being on this list, since I'm gay and I know I will not be this list as many other truly gifted LGBT's will never be on this list as well.

Alvin Ailey was a Choreographer, going by the bio from EF, he really didn't do anything from the gay community, he did do a lot for the African-American community. I don't support this one

John Amaechi, is on this list because he came out after he retired from professional sports, not while he was still in the sport, where he could have done much more for LGBT athletes. I support this one.

Tammy Baldwin the first out lesbian elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. I support this one

John Cage was a Composer, that is his claim to this icon status…

Hate CrimeBill and the Obama HRC dinner Speech

Just in from Joe My God,

Last night the House of Representatives voted down a GOP motion to strip the hate crimes act from the defense authorization bill to which it's attached. The vote was 234-178, virtually exactly along party lines. Tomorrow the House will see a final conference vote on the bill, after which the Senate will see a conference vote before the bill lands on Obama's desk. That may not happen until next week, but there appears to be a chance that President Obama may have something very nice in his pocket when he appears at the HRC dinner on Saturday. Below, Barney Frank defends attaching the hate crimes act to the DOD authorization.
I would not be surprise that this bill will be pass by the end of the week, and for Obama to Use it in speech at the HRC dinner, where he will either sign the bill or tell those rich ass HRC dinner guest, that he will sign the bill first thing Monday morning. To show that he is keeping his word..

HRC Gala to be PROTESED by Pro LGBT group and Westboro Church, WOW

I wonder just whom the HRC will be fucking over this time, to get our so-call Change President to attend this fucking dinner for the stupid white fucks in DC..

HRC and Joe need to go.. better yet get JOE the fuck out of HRC,, He is over paid for JOB he sucks at..
What is below was taken from LGBT POV
Longtime activist Andy Thayer is angry and he’s taking his anger from Chicago to Washington. Thayer, you may remember, co-founded the effective online StopDrLaura campaign with fellow activist Robin Tyler, among other actions.

Here’s the press release he sent out this morning:
Pro-LGBT Picket of Obama This Saturday Moved from White House to HRC Gala
In reaction to the announcement yesterday that President Obama will address a black tie fundraising gala of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) on Saturday, October 10th, organizers of a pro-LGBT picket originally scheduled for that night at the White House have instead moved the picket to the site of the HRC gala. The picket will begin at 6 PM in fr…
