{December 3, 2013}   Homo-WHAT?

homophobia“Well, while you were in the bathroom, I sat down at this picnic table here in Bumblefug, Kentucky, and noticed that someone had carved that GOD HATES FAG, which, aside from being a grammatical nightmare, is absolutely ridiculous. So I’m changing it to ‘God Hates Baguettes.’ It’s tough to disagree with that. Everybody hates baguettes.”  -John Green, An Abundance of Katherines

“You could move.’ —“Dear Abby” responds to a reader who complained that a gay couple was moving in across the street and wanted to know what he could do to improve the quality of the neighborhood.” -Abigail Van Buren

“Remember, Jesus would rather constantly shame gays than let orphans have a family.”- Stephen Colbert

“What would my first sergeant do if he came across me and another girl getting it on? He’d want pictures. He’d want to join in. He’d want me and this other girl to double-team him right then and there. On the other hand, since most heterosexual men are homophobic and sexist, most straight guys figure gay men will treat them the way they themselves treat women- that is, like sex objects. And this freaks them the fuck out.” -Kayla Williams, Love My Rifle More Than You: Young and Female in the U.S. Army

“Well Democrat or Republican, gay, straight, transgendered or bi, we are all united by our love and respect of delicious, flavored vodkas.” -Wanda Sykes

“My lesbianism is an act of Christian charity. All those women out there praying for a man, and I’m giving them my share.” –LGBT News Facebook Post

“I dream of a day, when I am treated like a human being and not hated for loving someone.” LGBT News Facebook Post

“How many homophobes does it take to change a light bulb? None. They fear change- even if it means making the world a brighter place.” –

“Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and personhood. This sets the stage for further repression and violence that spread all too easily to victimize the next minority group.” -Coretta Scott King

“The sad truth about bigotry is that most bigots either don’t realize that they are bigots, or they convince themselves that their bigotry is perfectly justified.” -Wayne Gerard Trotman

“I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead  and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.” -President of the United States of America, Barack Obama, May  9, 2012, in an interview with Robin Roberts of ABC News. ( I know his views have wavered drastically when it comes to legalizing gay marriage. His opinions on the matter seem to differ depending on his audience or what benefits him at the time, such as during election and reelection times.)




{March 20, 2012}   Take Me Out Back & Shoot Me

How about a little venting session?

I grew up in a homophobic household. You could say my family is full of bigots. I never understood it. I guess it’s kind of like when I lived in Trenton, N.J.- there were African Americans everywhere, shit, I even had one living with me at one point. He was a very nice guy. I didn’t see color, I still don’t. I’m not saying I’m oblivious to the different races, I’m not stupid or blind. I’m saying I don’t care what you look like, who you like or anything else, as long as you’re a decent person we’ll get along and be friends. My family is also racist, by the way.

Anyway, I’m saying all of this because when I was visiting my parents yesterday my brother showed up and played a song that everyone thought was hilarious… except for me. It was a song making fun of homosexuals and it was very tasteless. I sat on it last night and today trying to come up for excuses for their behavior, but I can’t think of anything. They must realize that it bothers me… they know I’m attracted to women. They know I’m a lesbian, it’s not a secret anymore. Yet they continue to bash homosexuals in my face. They’re a bunch of rednecks who think “homo’s should be shot”. I have to say, that hurts. If that’s how they feel, why don’t they just take me out back and shoot me? It wouldn’t be as painful as listening to them hate who I am.
