Obviously anti-gay groups are doing their best to fight marriage equality in New York State, but their best just isn’t good enough.
Distorting evidence in homophobic arguments happens more than you think. LOTS more.
David Tyree is in a new NOM video, discussing same-sex marriage leading to anarchy. Meanwhile, the NY marriage bill has passed the assembly and is still waiting for a Senate vote.
“We’re losing on that one, especially among the 20- and 30-somethings: 65 to 70 percent of them favor same-sex marriage.. we’ve probably lost that.”
It’s called “Consequences” except all the consequences are made up. Also, if you’re a Republican senator, NOM will pay you $1 million to vote their way!
The tour will include an RV they describe as “wrapped in marriage messaging” going from city to city throughout the month to meet with legislators – and average, everyday straight people, too!
Rep. Trent Franks and Maggie Gallagher both had a lot of feelings about gay marriage being bad, but it turns out no one cared about them.
“If there is an issue of shame, it is a result of acknowledging the number of people I have targeted, hurt and oppressed… much of [my work] I would now categorize as propaganda filled with strong and unnecessary rhetoric.”
GagaVision No.41 is about Lady Gaga’s encounter with a fundamentalist Christian protester outside one of her concerts. Also take a gander at the Southern twang remix version of “Born This Way.”
This seems like an opportune moment to throw in the towel, but then how would NOM get the 2 million dollars they allegedly need to support this dying cause?
“But Democrats… have managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.”
“Who will they demonize if not the gays?”
What happens when homosexuals and conservatives come together? Something different every time, apparently! Stories from Maryland’s gay marriage debate, the Conservative Political Action Conference, the National Prayer Breakfast and more.
NOM and the Family Research Council are upset the Southern Poverty Law Center called them hate groups, because it’s not hatred if you’re right.
Just when you thought it was safe to register at Pottery Barn in Iowa, voters there remind us that they HATE EQUALITY, and especially the judges who uphold it with unpopular rulings. And once again we have NOM to thank.
It’s tempting to look for people to blame in the wake of the terrible tragedies this past week has brought, but it’s best to resist that urge. Oh wait, no. You can blame these people.
This week we learn that sometimes, things on the Internet that are too funny to be true aren’t actually true. We will survive this. Also, good gay advice columns, nebulous news on Beth Ditto and Nicki Minaj, and also good news for people who aren’t Brits but want to be and are also persecuted for their homosexuality!
Are you ready for Sunday Funday? Probs not, because the top story this week uses “Kylie Minogue” and “fisting” in the same paragraph. Also, Lady Gaga saves the world by tweeting for peace, Samantha Ronson keeps visiting Lindsay Lohan, Ilene Chaiken makes generalizations about lesbians, you find out if you really need to throw that cheese out or if it’s good for another three days, and Caster Semenya motherf*cks everyone else in the 800m race. Oh, did we mention the POETRY? And KITTENS?
Yvonne Moore, “world’s worst church lady” (according to THAT’S GAY), sues her church for 250K for that gross lesbian wedding they threw. But hey, let’s check out that book she’s been reading in “Autostraddle’s Primer on New & Old Testament’s Mentions of Homosexuality” which will soothe your soul, even if you’ve eaten trail mix, which’s bad for your soul. FYI.
Portia De Rossi goes on The View, graces the universe with her radiant beauty & intelligence on topics like being closeted, her career, and equal rights. Elisabeth Hasselbeck is dumb. Kids are more tolerant of diversity, some important dude thinks women will be in the NBA one day, and the best protest signs of 2009.
