Pope Francis Named Man Of The Year By Vanity Fair Italia

Pope Francis Named Man Of The Year By Vanity Fair Italia

“If he does not support gay people than he is not worthy of any attention. Religion is a joke...filled with hypocrites...Jesus would be right in with the gays, because he was all for the marginalized...he was truly for the people, the downtrodden, the most needy of love and affection...world religion has bastardized the concept of a Jesus into non-reality and obedience to a church...no good will ever come to these orgs...until they include all human beings...if their God didn't want gay people it wouldn't have willed them into existence...”

“George W. Bush: the number one reason this country has completely gone to hell in a handbasket. Since he stepped into office (after completely ruining the State of Texas as its governor), the country started its downslide and has never recovered. The US of A is at its worst decline since it began...all beause of Bush and his shenanigans, including getting us into two wars we had not business to be in...that's where all our money went, and now we're in the dog house without a bone. His moniker should be Bush, the Destroyer, since he destroyed this country and was probably the worst president ever.”

Obama Administration: Gay Marriage Ban Unconstitutional In Prop. 8 Supreme Court Case

Commented Feb 28, 2013 at 22:12:54 in Politics

“sigh…isn't it about time already that everyone in this country had equal rights under the law. Religion is fine for some, but has no place in governmental affairs. The government represents everyone, not just one or two or 100 religions; religions is personal and should stay that way. Someone down the line said that the government was backwards and was trying to overturn something that the people voted on. If what people vote on restricts equal rights because of prejudice then the government MUST step in and put an end to the unconstitutionality of what was voted in. If the people, let's say, of Mississippi, voted to kill all black people in their state, the government damn well better step in and eradicate that vote. Come on, let everyone have equal rights that are due them in the USA and keep religion in the home.”

“You're confusing religion and government. You can have all the beliefs you want, that is your right under the laws of the USA; however, when it comes to religion, there is no place for that in a government that stands for and by the people, which means that EVERYONE, not just one or two religions get to have equal rights. Have your religious beliefs, no problem; but don't bring those into governmental affairs. Everyone in this country deserves equal rights.”

“Include swingers?!? Isn't that a REAL lifestyle choice?!? We didn't choose the identities we have. Why do we need, now, a new "title." After all we fought for?? And for some reason (probably subconscious LOL) I looked at GSD and thought "that's Sodom & Gomorra." Gender and Sexual Diversities…doesn't that mean EVERYONE? I don't know, I like our good ole LGBT…(I wonder, does anyone discriminate against Asexuals…are they denied jobs, housing, accommodations because of what they are…).”

“Poor Mr. Clark and the negative impact gay marriage is having on his company e-(dis)harmony. Clark: "I have said that eHarmony really ought to put up $10 million and ask other companies to put up money and do a really first class job of figuring out homosexuality," Listen, babe, give me the 10 million and I'll bring along a "friend," and we'll do a bang-up, first-class (blow)job of showing you what homosexuality really is all about. Or you could donate that money to any of our causes and find out for yourself what it's all about by visiting one of our many fine bars and picking someone up and well, you know, try it!”

“Maybe it's just me, but I didn't notice anyone above 40 (maybe musto and and tom what'shisname from a runway show). Being Gay isn't ALL about being young and pretty…although I have nothing against that - they're nice to look at, and I already had my turn at young and pretty, which was great fun. But it would be great to see a REALLY diverse bunch of gay guys of ALL ages. Perhaps, by including those of us who came before and set the stage for the wonderful things that are happening for us today, the gay world would be more inclusive and tolerant of its older brothers (and sisters). We still have a lot to offer! Oh, one other question: are those 100 (one claimed his partner was not eligible) all certifiably gay? Wasn't sure, as the article did not say 101 most eligible GAY bachelors. Peace and love to all.”

Straight Men Who Watch More Porn Are More Supportive Of Same-Sex Marriage: Research

Straight Men Who Watch More Porn Are More Supportive Of Same-Sex Marriage: Research

Commented Feb 6, 2013 at 00:40:49 in Gay Voices

“There are so many problems with that article that I don't even know where to begin. How many men were in that study? Did they have a control group who did not watch porn? Was the population of the study one race or all races? Did the population come form all economic strata or were they just middle class, or poor? Were these men married or single? I could go on and on, and i have done lots of research to realize what a bunch of cocky doody that "research" states. As as someone mentioned below, to make that research "valid" then it has to be replicated by others…has that been done? It just proves one thing…don't believe everything you read or hear.”

Another Allen Walker on Feb 6, 2013 at 12:14:54

“Considering that the author of the study, Mark Regnerus, has a history of making claims that aren't backed up by any data, it's not surprising that the study's conclusions are questionable.”

Citizens United Files Brief In Support Of DOMA, Claims Landmark Desegregation Case Wrong

Citizens United Files Brief In Support Of DOMA, Claims Landmark Desegregation Case Wrong

Commented Feb 5, 2013 at 15:31:34 in Black Voices

“Case was brought by the Citizen's United Group, not Westboro Baptist. CU got the Supreme Court to overturn past court decisions that said corporations could not make sizable donations to political candidates. They were overturned because the Court said corporations were entitled to First Amendment Rights; those rights included making donations to political candidates (Scalia, Thomas, et al). Huge decision for SCOTUS, opened the money floodgates for candidates to be "bought." Now, CU is using the same tactics against DOMA, stating previous cases decided during the Civil Rights movement are invalid because 5th Amendment equal protection was applied, but wrongly; that the Constitution should be interpreted STRICTLY as written. The SC has treated the 5th Amendment and the 14th Amendment guaranteeing equal protection as identical. Don't underestimate the power of this Supreme Court. The arguments for and against LGBT's fundamental rights under the 5th and 14th are very complicated and could go either way. "Originalists" think Gays don't deserve strict scrutiny; therefore rational basis scrutiny is applied; the government only has to prove a rational basis for having a law: if there is any conceivable state of facts that could provide a rational basis for the classification, then the law stands. That's tantamount to no review at all. I'm sure the conservatives on SCOTUS will use that. However, what could be a rational basis for denying us our civil rights? What is coming up for us in the Supreme Court is a fight for our very "legal" lives.”

Janicot on Feb 5, 2013 at 18:22:20

“Interesting juxtaposition when you consider that the SCOTUS affirmed the rights of corporations, but that the primary beneficiary of that decision is now making the opposite argument to support the upholding of DOMA.”

“Ezra, I don't find you insulting. There is no doubt that Black people were/are treated horribly in U.S.. I saw the Civil Rights Movement in the late '50's and '60's, Black protesters were hosed down, had separate bathrooms, etc. I could go on and on. Yes, I understand the hardship for Blacks because they could be identified by the color of their skin; no hiding from that. Gay discrimination goes back to colonial times (I wrote a published paper on history of gay discrimination in U.S.). We too had struggles: in all states gay behavior was criminalized; was against the law for gays to congregate (particularly in bars, which were raided, people arrested and their names put in the news), gays were not allowed to serve in the military nor hold government jobs. Gays were discriminated against legally in housing and accommodations and could not marry. We were "legal strangers;" no rights at all. Yes, some say gays could hide their identity; however, they had to adhere to societal norms; if a man was perceived as outside the accepted "macho man" image, were effeminate, then all bets were off for us. Both groups shared struggles, shame, identity crises, hatred/bigotry, beatings and murder. My point is we are still disenfranchised in the "land of the free." and that's just plain wrong for all of us.”

“In the '60s…where were you? I was there and not only fought for gay civil rights, but for women's civil rights and Black civil rights. We were there brother, maybe you just didn't see us. The '60s were a very heady time, and all people woke up to the fact that most of the population who were not "White Males" had no civil rights. I fought, marched, joined forces and feel that gays made a dent in civil rights for all. Look how far we've all come so far…but we still have so far to go. Please don't set out one group over another…we all need the rights that our founding fathers foresaw everyone having. Equal Rights for all disenfranchised…Please!”

“"Daniel Radcliffe has a theory on why Americans might think British men "seem gay." Mmmm, I'm American and I never even speculated if British men seem gay. This was cute: "John had never seen the version of that scene that he wanted: gay sex in a film that felt very real." Here's an idea…watch some gay porn and you will see gay sex in a film that IS very real. Me thinks DannyBoy is promoting his new film.”

“Well, you clearly need to read it again, as you've missed:

- the author's view about gay pride
- the speech marks around the title - it's what someone has said to her, not what she thinks!
- the author's sexuality (3rd last paragraph)

- the author's main point!”

“Nope...no parody...teachers are all dead by now anyway. I read the article...no offense to the author...she wrote what she wanted to write, which is a liberty in America...just felt anger (as always) when reading about all the rights of straights (heteros), and the sense of entitlement that heteros get to feel, while the LGBT community continually gets kicked to the curb. I've been fighting for "gay rights" for over 40 years. I marched in the first "Gay Pride Parade" held in NYC (I believe it was in 1970)...when we were just fighting for the right to congregate together in a gay bar (and not get raided, arrested and have your name printed in the newspaper). What a wonderful day to live to see...when the Supreme Court is addressing gay marriage in a positive way, and siding with us...finally. So for me, just the phrase, straight pride, makes me see red. Perhaps that blurred my perception of the intent of the article, but that's ok with me...just love my community, and will stand behind it until there is full equality in all areas of the laws of the United States of America. No worries about one article on one website. I don't mind your comments either..."freedom of speech" is a great thing.”
