Gay Word of the Day

The Gay bomb is an informal name for a theoretical non-lethal chemical weapon, which a US Air Force research laboratory speculated about producing. The possibility was canvassed that a strong aphrodisiac could be dropped on enemy troops, ideally one which would also cause "homosexual behavior". The documents described the aphrodisiac weapon as "distasteful but completely non-lethal." Wright Laboratory won the 2007 Ig Nobel Peace Prize for "instigating research & development on a chemical weapon—the so-called 'gay bomb' / 'poof bomb' —that will make enemy soldiers become sexually irresistible to each other."

When will it End?!

On Thursday afternoon, after returning home from school, fifth-grader Jaheem quietly went into his room and hanged himself. His 10-year-old sister, Yerralis, also a fifth-grader, discovered Jaheem’s dead body.
Jaheem was bullied relentlessly, his family said. Keene said the family knew the boy was a target, but until his death they didn’t understand the scope.

When will schools and communities and people realize that children are committing SUICIDE because teachers and youth workers are "keeping to their faith" and not stopping punk ass little fuckers from teasing other students. I mean I am absolutely positive if a student was bullying another student using offensive racial or gender based slurs that student would be suspended/reprimanded for their actions. However, when these comments are homophobic and considered to be used too often to catch every student using them then it is OK for teachers not to take action. So because it would be TOO HARD to make students stop using the words gay and fag we are just going to let the LGBT youth affected by this bare the burden and have to deal with it. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME!

Another ridiculous ad by the opposition

Gay Word of the Day

Twink: is a term used among gay & bisexual males to describe young men in their late teens or early twenties who are slim and have little to no body hair. The term originates from the snack food twinkie, which is tanned on the outside and has cream filling. The connotation was that "twinks" are delicious, but have little substance and are not considered for long-term relationships. The term can be used pejoratively in the gay community but is mostly a neutral term used for identification purposes.

If you don't know her... you should

Christine Quinn, openly lesbian New York City Council Speaker, gave a tremendously touching and powerful speech at a press conference last week. I had the privilege of seeing how truly amazing she is this past Sunday. She was one of the speakers for the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund's 9th Annual Champagne Brunch and did an incredible job resulting in an overwhelming number of generous donations by the over 600 attendees.

I know that this applies to some of you out there today...
