god love her.

When gays get so angry about a chicken sandwich, it is because Chick-fil-A has given around $5 million to fight to discriminate against us. When we praise brave Eagle Scouts who give up their badges in protest of the Boy Scouts of America’s prejudice, it’s not about scoring political points; it’s because there are kids in dens who are being taught to believe that they are less than equal. When we rant about the pastor who preaches that gays should be thrown into a concentration camp, we scream out of fear. And our fears are justified — in the last seven days, a lesbian in Nebraska was carved with a knife, a gay man in Oklahoma was firebombed, and a girl in Kentucky was kicked and beaten — her jaw broken and her teeth knocked out — while her assailants allegedly hurled anti-gay slurs at her.

Yes. This.

The answer to the question “why do you have to take this so seriously?” in this case, is “because this shit is fucking serious.”

Hey, so some kids from my school went to an anti-gay marriage protest in Minnesota to protest against the people with glitter.

The man filming Ian (the boy with the glitter and cheerios) is Bachmann’s right hand man and apparently going to press charges even though Ian checked with the police if it was okay to glitter them, and it was so long as it wasn’t in the face.

The man, Andy Parrish, is currently trying to get  Rush Limbaugh and his other cronies to gang up Ian.

Andy also called Ian a “Pixie” off camera and told him that he would never be a real man and that his parents raised him wrong.

In the comments people are claiming that allowing same sex marriage is bad for the family, the community, and is treading on their religious freedom.

If you can, comment on the video and give support to Ian on this.

SIGNAL BOOST

Go to town, Tumblr

[Sexual orientation] labels are just words to express how we feel.

welp, that should about clear things up.

Target has pledged $120,000 in cash to promote the legalization of homosexual marriage.

archer-and-anders:

Just saw this in an email from one of my professors who is an adviser for the Lesbian and Gay Vet Med Association at school. Target’s website says it will donate 100% of T-shirt sales from customers during the month of June to Family Equality Council. 

See the t-shirts here.

The big thing about it though is that this has been going around anti-gay organizations, and they’re rallying people to complain to the higher-ups at Target and even boycott their store, just like what happened with the Girl Scouts when they allowed a trans* girl join.

So we need to try to support Target in this if we can. If you can’t go buy a shirt, you can email them at press@target.com to show your support. It will only take a few minutes, and it’s for a cause that I think is really near and dear to a lot of us here. Signal boost please? I can’t reach enough people with this on my own.

Voting Tomorrow

Tomorrow, something in my city is being voted on, and this something is very important.  I live in the city of Anchorage, Alaska, and we’re voting on Proposition 5.

Prop 5 will make it illegal to discriminate against someone based on their sexual orientation and transgender identity.

I’m sure that I don’t have to mention how vital something like this is.  This is step towards equal rights.  This is going to help stem the tide of hate.  This is a move in the right direction.  A lot of my friends don’t live in Anchorage, but Tumblr is a powerful beast of momentum, so I’m writing this in hopes of reaching out to others in my area, and encouraging them to GO TO THE POLLS tomorrow, April 3rd.  I wish I had known of this sooner, so I could have started this weeks ago, but I only have a day to do it.

Let’s move my state in the right direction.  If you’re of voting age and in the city of Anchorage, PLEASE vote yes on Prop 5.

motherjones:

“But dear God, we should not be putting civil rights issues to a popular vote to be subject to the sentiments, the passions of the day. No minority should have their rights subject to the passions and sentiments of the majority. This is a fundamental bedrock of what our nation stands for.”

Chris Christie, check your gay-marriage milkshake. Cory Booker just drank it.

Five minutes well spent.

Also, rude anonymous ask poster who thinks that this beautiful PERSON should be ashamed of who they are:  This is a person who isn’t ‘hiding behind a male face’, they are a person who is refusing to hide who they really are behind what society thinks is ‘acceptable’, you ignorant fuck.  They aren’t trying to ‘trick anyone’ into thinking they’re anyone but themselves.  So they identify themselves as male.  It’s none of your fucking business.  Move.  On.

It’s a time-honored tradition at Navy homecomings – one lucky sailor is chosen to be first off the ship for the long-awaited kiss with a loved one.Today, for the first time, the happily reunited couple was gay.
The dock landing ship Oak Hill has been gone for nearly three months, training with military allies in Central America.
As the homecoming drew near, the crew and ship’s family readiness group sold $1 raffle tickets for the first kiss. Petty Officer 2nd Class Marissa Gaeta bought 50 - which is actually fewer than many people buy, she said, so she was surprised Monday to find out she’d won.
Her girlfriend of two years, Petty Officer 3rd Class Citlalic Snell, was waiting when she crossed the brow.
They kissed. The crowd cheered. And with that, another vestige of the policy that forced gays to serve in secrecy vanished.
