anti gay bigotry

Maybe if people didn’t focus so much on hatred against specific identities (anti-gay bigotry, anti-trans bigotry) and focused on oppression from the oppressor class instead (heteronormativity, cisnormativity) we could spend less time focusing on who is “gay enough” or “trans enough” and instead analyze the many ways cis/hetero people fuck over everyone who isn’t. Which would allow for less infighting and more solidarity and activism that benefits *everyone*

One Million Moms: How can we demonstrate to the American people that we’re pro-family values?

Conservatives: Hmmm…maybe you could shame and attack a sweet little eleven-year-old girl simply for having two dads?


Dan Savage on bible-based persecution of the LGBTQIA+ community

“The Bible. We’ll just talk about the Bible for a second. People often point out that they can’t help it – they can’t help with the anti-gay bullying, because it says right there in Leviticus, it says right there in Timothy, it says right there in Romans, that being gay is wrong.

We can learn to ignore the bulls**t in the Bible about gay people. The same way, the same way we have learned to ignore the bulls**t in the Bible about shellfish, about slavery, about dinner, about farming, about menstruation, about virginity, about masturbation. We ignore bulls**t in the Bible about all sorts of things. The Bible is a radically pro-slavery document. Slave owners waved Bibles over their heads during the Civil War and justified it. The shortest book in the New Testament is a letter from Paul to a Christian slave owner about owning his Christian slave. And Paul doesn’t say “Christians don’t own people” Paul talks about how Christians own people. 

We ignore what the Bible says about slavery, because the Bible got slavery wrong. Tim – uh, Sam Harris, in A Letter To A Christian Nation, points out that the Bible got the easiest moral question that humanity has ever faced wrong. Slavery. What’re the odds that the Bible got something as complicated as human sexuality wrong? One hundred percent. 

The Bible says that if your daughter’s not a virgin on her wedding night – if a woman isn’t a virgin on her wedding night, she shall be dragged to her father’s doorstep and stoned to death. Callista Gingrich lives. And there is no effort to amend state constitutions to make it legal to stone women to death on their wedding night if they’re not virgins. At least not yet. We don’t know where the GOP is going these days.

People are dying because people can’t clear this one last hurdle. They can’t get past this one last thing in the Bible about homosexuality. 

[Addressing religious students who had walked out during the previous portion of the speech] Um, one other thing I wanna talk about is – [chuckles] – so, you can tell the Bible guys in the hall that they can come back now, because I’m done beating up the Bible. It’s funny, as someone who’s on the receiving end of beatings that are justified by the Bible, how pansy-assed some people react when you push back. 

I apologize if I hurt anyone’s feelings. But. I have a right to defend myself. And to point out the hypocrisy of people who justify anti-gay bigotry by pointing to the Bible, and insisting we must live by the code of Leviticus on this one issue and no other.”

Westboro Baptist Church Protests Against Funerals for Orlando Shooting Victims

The anti-gay church — known for protesting the funerals of U.S. service members and notable gay people — said in a statement posted on its website that “God sent the shooter.”

So meet angels guard against Westboro Baptist at funerals for Orlando shooting victims

Too much hate towards gay community! These people died a tragic death. 

So I don’t understand what they are trying to accomplish by picketing at a gay funeral? I can’t understand how this cult is still able to get away with what they do. This is America, we live in a free country (that’s what they tell us), but actually this is the greatest lie!

They kill people for their sexual orientation and then don’t let to bury them with respect.

This is actual anti-gay bigotry at its prime!

Apostolic Exhortation like...
  • Pope Francis: Here's what the Church teaches.(Exhortation which btw doesn't allow divorced and "remarried" to receive communion)
  • Secular Media: POPE FRANCIS RELEASES GROUNDBREAKING EXHORTATION TO THE CHURCH! Teaches new things like "mercy" and "compassion".
  • LGBTQIA+ Lobby: Pope Francis shares love, but yet again denies gays a place at the table in perpetuating the age old anti-gay bigotry of far right Catholics.
  • Radicals: apostate false Pope Francis spews HERESY and acceptance of sacrilege and adultery!
  • Modernists: Pope Francis accepts divorced and remarried back into the pews, welcomes all in any situation to receive communion.
  • Feminists: Pope Francis makes another stride in the long awaited journey to full equality and the ordination of women!!
  • Me: Umm...anything else? I'm going back to bed. It's almost like this is a pattern we're all used to or something.
