Anti-Gay Idiot Pens Heartfelt Poem About Michael Sam Kiss, Dr. Seuss-Style

Are you familiar with the ridiculousness that is Peter LaBarbera? He is the president of a Southern Poverty Law Center-designated hate group that hilariously calls themselves “Americans For Truth About Homosexuality.” I use the term “group” loosely, because I strongly suspect he may also be the only member.

ANYWAY, Peter LaBarbera is super mad about gay people existing. Like, it pretty much ruins his whole life. He complains about it constantly. He spends so much time thinking about how mad he is about the gays that he has even taken to writing poems about Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend on television. In the style of Dr. Seuss, because I guess that’s where his maturity level is at. Keep reading »

Pat Robertson Thinks Gay People Will Go Extinct Because They Can’t Reproduce

Full Of Jesus Or Gas?

On today’s edition of the “700 Club,” Pat Robertson received a phone call from a viewer asking him to weigh in on her church’s policy of forbidding members from dating or marrying anybody, which has made said members very frustrated because they are all getting older and would prefer not to die alone.

Is she a Shaker? Is it some kind of cult? We don’t know! And the reason we do not know is because instead of making sure that this woman is not in some bizarre cult, Pat Robertson decided to relate this to the gays, and how they and this church will go extinct from not reproducing. As one does, when one is Pat Robertson. Keep reading »

The Soapbox: On The Stonewall Rebellion’s Trans History

The Soapbox: On The Stonewall Rebellion's Trans History

President Obama issued a proclamation at the end of May stating that June is officially Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month, but June has unofficially been Pride Month for the LGBT community for decades. We place it in June, and our pride parades at the end of June, to mark the anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion. This year will be 45 years.

The fact that our President is so markedly in support of LGBT rights is historic, but what really makes it remarkable to me is that he and his administration have been vocal lately about transgender rights. Sex reassignment surgery can now be covered on Medicare.  Chuck Hagel is now “open” to reconsidering the military’s ban on transgender service members. This is all part of a very fast, sweeping change in our culture’s conversation about transgender people, marked just since the beginning of this month, for example, by Laverne Cox’s appearance on the cover of TIME and a viral video telling the story of a family raising a transgender child.
