Put forth his theory that Homosexuals was are absolutely necessary for the survival of the species

So why are we here?

We are the teachers who can stay late after school to aid slower students

We are the maiden aunts and Bachelors uncles who provide financial cushioning in cases of emergencies

We are in his view the worker bees of humanity

Snow in my little corner of NC

Bill James's Bigot Comments via Qnotes

I will never under why the LGBT community gets so upset when a bigot elected official writes an email and degrades the community.

When the community is made aware of such degrading actions its gets outraged and start calling for the removal of the official. Most of the time, this so-called outrage goes statewide and depending just who the elected official is, sometime its goes national.

The most recent soon to be outrage in NC is from an elected official from the Anti-gay, Republican Mecklenburg County Commissioner Bill James, which by some counts, this is the first time. Just what was said, to whom was it said/written too, and most important just who released it to the media?

James’ remarks were made in response to County Commissioner Chair Jennifer Roberts’ request to send a letter thanking some members of the Charlotte-area congressional delegation for their “yes” votes on “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT) repeal this month. Roberts was to send the letter to U.S. Reps. Larry Kissell and Mel Watt and U.S. Sens. Richard Burr and Kay Hagan. President Barack Obama last week signed the repeal act into law.

So what did James write that will get this outrage going?

“Homosexuals are sexual predators,” James wrote in one email from string of three between county board members, Roberts and County Manager Harry Jones, and provided by James to Qnotes. “Allowing homosexuals to serve in the US military with the endorsement of the Mecklenburg County Commission ignores a host of serious problems related to maintaining US military readiness and effectiveness not the least of which is the current Democrat plan to allow homosexuals (male and female) to share showers with those they are attracted to.”

James added, “The US Government would not allow Hetero men and women to share showers and other personal facilities yet the leading homosexual in Congress (Barney Frank) thinks it is OK for homosexuals to do so allowing enlisted men and women to fall prey to higher ranking or more powerful homosexuals who ogle them (or worse).”

First off, James must love attention, if he willing did send a copy of or cc Q-notes in said email. If he is seeking attention, then why is Qnotes encouraging him in these matters? His comments are nothing new. We have heard all them before in many different contexts, on myriads of issues.

So the local community of Mecklenburg County knows what type of bigot they have elected to represent them on the county board. Even though his slur and derogatory language is known to all, then why get upset when it happen. Instead of getting upset every time he calls us a derogatory name, why not just ignore him and stop giving him a platform to spew his hate and stupidity? Also why not lead a community wide campaign to oust him from office. Find a LGBT community friendly candidate to run against him in the next election. Then get the community to fully support that candidate 100%.

If the local community is so outrage at these comment but don’t do an effing thing, then they need to stop the bitching and deal with.

Just maybe the community should and will do something about this bigot. Since, he has been in communication with the new Republican leaders of the North Carolinas state legislature.

We all know what some of the Issues that James has been talking over with them. Just how many of these will come to light and be pass in the upcoming year.

I’m sure as I’m breathing that the anti-Marriage bill will come up for a hearing or two. Other issues like Domestic partnership, adoptions, and just maybe Hospital rights once again.

So let see, what will our community face this upcoming year? How many anti-gay bills will be voted on in the New Year? How many supporters will we gain or lose?

What is / Who is a media Whore

What is?

1.     A person who has a psychological need to get into TV, Film, Radio or Print.

2.     A person who becomes aroused almost sexually by seeing or hearing themselves or about themselves in the media.


Who is?

For the most recent one please check the following, Joe my God, Towleroad, Pams’ house.. He story is  those and many more other blogs by now….


My breakdown was a result of a cumulative array of stressors but there is no doubt that the composite betrayals felt on Thursday, by elected leaders and gay organizations as well as many who have exploited my name for their marketing purposes have added to the result. I am certain my experience is not an isolated incident within the gay veteran community.

Food for Thought

The homeless go without food. The elderly go without medicine. The mentally ill go without treatment. Troops go without proper equipment. Veterans go without benefits that were promised to them. Yet we give billions in tax breaks to the wealthiest 2% of Americans --- those who need it the least.

Pam see the light concerning HRC, well Joe anyway

Who would have thought that after having major surgery, that Pam would see the light about Joe Solmonese the head of HRC.. So insightful that even David Mixner loves her piece.. 

"It's time for the Human Rights Campaign's Joe Solmonese to tender his resignation.

By any sane performance metrics, he has failed to successfully lead. Promises like those made in the "This year we are going to bring down DADT" video at the HRC Carolina's dinner on Feb. 27 were used to extract money from low-info, fat wallet attendees. It's rinse and repeat at events like that around the country and there is precious little to show for it in terms of the major promises made by Solmonese -- and this President

I'm also glad that she finally prove/agree that these HRC dinners are used to extract money from the Rich Fat Cats, like David Mixner and others..
Joe Solmonese should do the honorable thing and step down. It is shameful to cash all those checks without the follow through on the job. The White House was never put under serious pressure; the late calls now in the e-blasts for the President to do something ring hollow after the toadying that has gone on for two years." 
Pam how else will he gets his huge pay check?

She even ask the follow,
It is not divisive to ask what have we gotten for the $80 million that flowed into the coffers of the Human Rights Campaign when it comes to leadership. Those funds -- were they effectively used to ensure promised action on by this President on his major promises?
Well we have gotta a few fancy dinners and PSA and some nice gift with HRC logo on them. However Joe has gotta alot more, hundreds of first class fights all over the world, limos and lets not forget his almost 1/3 of million dollar yearly pay.. and those of the things what we know of..

Lets not forget that he was ready to throw the Trans-community under the bus if it would get ENDA pass, Remember they protest the HRC dinner that was held in Charlotte a few years back

Ms Pam has a point on this one.
In any case, critics haven't any power to change the strategic vision (such as it is), within HRC, and if those in charge simply blow off any criticism, is the community expected to sit silent with hands politely folded? There certainly hasn't been a private summit to discuss the myriad problems that have arisen, nor does there appear to be any feedback mechanism desired. I don't expect that it would occur, anyway, given the bunker mentality in place.
and her best advice yet,
And as far as calls for accountability for new media/bloggers/citizen activists? Hey, that's easy -- people won't read what doesn't interest them, and our voices are limited by time -- we're not news services. As we all know here at the Blend, all it takes is a health issue to take me offline for a good long while. Voices will come and go. 
Pam knows that her voice/blog is heard/read around the world... Maybe this will get some stuff moving in the right direction..

However I would like to see Pam Support her local LGBT community a bit more. Even if she doesn't agree, she could still let others know through her blog, the "what, where, when, and how."

Do you have a single positive or non-jaded bone in your body?

Yes this is what a certain young guy ask me on Facebook. I comment that a LA porn Star was bitching and whining for catching a few STD's. Because he choose to work in this field.. Its not like STD's are new. He chose to work in porn, he thought that since he had a nice body and nice size cock, that this was the way to many some easy money..

Now he wants to play stupid, I guess he slept through school and while he was surfing the net.
The 24-year-old worked as a hotel manager and cruise ship magician before becoming a performer in the lucrative porn industry.
He now said he wishes he had known more about the risks of contracting sexually transmitted diseases in the industry.

He chose to have sex for money without a condom. That right, he chose to do it and now he acts like a damn victim..

I can guess the fast cash and a quick nut over rule his head..
The Sydney Morning Herald reported that porn star Derrick Burts, who recently tested positive for HIV, is urging the industry to make condom use mandatory. The 24-year-old actor accepts roles in both straight

 and gay films. Burts has a girlfriend, but insists that he contracted the disease during a shoot for an adult film. Burts works under the names of Cameron Reid for his straight porn roles and Derek Chambers for his gay films. Currently the porn industry discourages the use of condoms for monetary reasons. Porn with condoms just doesn't sell as well.

Mr Derrick just who gave you what and when, was it the women or the men...

So which producer force you to do it?

Now he wants to blame the porn business.. He could have said no, not with a condom. 

What a Message to read

This past weekend I went with my niece to her Cheer leading Competition in Tennessee. This used to be the Premier Cup, this year UCA/UDA Competition. I don't know whom was responsible for the planning of this event,but they did a very poor job, Less food vendors and clothes vendors, and no intermission performance, and nothing for the smaller kids to do..

They didn't want you to take your own photographs or video.. the reason they gave was for privacy concern. HELLO, this was a public event,, however I'm glad to see that no one followed the above announcement at all. I know I didn't, I took photographs of my niece's group both days..

Christians up in arms over Death Sentence

American Christians are mad as hell that a couple of Christians in Muslim countries have been convicted of blasphemy and sentenced to death. Conveniently, they forget their own religion’s history of just that. And some of ‘em are secretly salivating, wishing like hell the U.S. Constitution was a little more like Sharia law, only for Christians. After all, isn’t that what they mean when they say this is a Christian country? And forget that “Judeo” crap they tack on sometimes. Why, down in Texas, where Real Christians run the show, a bigwig named John Cook is gonna make sure that Jew boy who’s the House speaker loses his job. But it’s not because he’s anti-Semitic, mind you. And it’s not about Joe Strauss’ religion. It’s because Christian conservatives “do the best job over all.”
