And I would rather have a pincushion handle political decisions for my area than you. :3

Read the whole article. It’s a veritable cornucopia of homophobic and misogynistic fuckery.

Ellen Page’s awesome response to a homophobic pastor who wrote to her.

Any story dealing, however seriously, with homosexual love is taken to be a story about homosexuality while stories dealing with heterosexual love are seen as stories about the individual people they portray. This is as much a problem today for American filmmakers who cannot conceive of the presence of gay characters in a film unless the specific subject of the film is homosexuality. Lesbians and gay men are thereby classified as purely sexual creatures, people defined solely by their sexual urges.

Vito Russo, The Celluloid Closet: Homosexuality in the Movies (Chapter 4)

The sad thing, folks, is that this book was written in 1981 and revised in the 1990s, and over thirty years later this hasn’t really changed.

wait this is why the Broadway community is literally amazing.

They made a video in response to the Russian government shutting down their theater productions. Full story on Broadwayworld here (x)

ALSO IT HAS EVERY BROADWAY PERSON YOU WANT.

and its pretty funny, enjoy!

Now this is why I love Broadway. These people take the time to come together and rehearse and design this, while making it funny while also making a statement. I highly recommend everyone watch this, even if you’re not a broadway person!

Asshole of the Day for December 30, 2013: Phil Robertson

by TeaPartyCat ()

Phil Robertson became a national figure two weeks ago when his comments against gays and civil rights became public. A&E suspended him, then rescinded the suspension before it mattered even one bit— perhaps to drive sales of merchandise during Christmas.

In his wake three more people were named Asshole of the Day for their ridiculous responses:

And now more comments have come out. These ones saying girls should be able to cook, carry a Bible, and marry at age 15. Really.

“Make sure that she can cook a meal, you need to eat some meals that she cooks, check that out,” he said. “Make sure she carries her Bible. That’ll save you a lot of trouble down the road. And if she picks your ducks, now, that’s a woman.”

“They got to where they’re getting hard to find,” Robertson remarked. “Mainly because these boys are waiting until they get to be about 20 years old before they marry ‘em. Look, you wait until they get to be 20 years old, the only picking that’s going to take place is your pocket.”

The Duck Commander company founder added: “You got to marry these girls when they are about 15 or 16, they’ll pick your ducks. You need to check with mom and dad about that of course.”

For a man who professes to love like it says to in the Bible, he really doesn’t seem to understand Jesus’s commandment to do unto others as you would have them do unto you, unless he thinks it’s fine for one of his granddaughters to get married to an older man at 15 and be relegated to cooking. Or is he one of those assholes like Rob Portman who opposes gay marriage until it turns out his son is gay? In this case he’d change his mind if it’s HIS 15-year-old relative. In any event, I’m tired of bigots and sexists hiding their prejudice behind the Bible. Time for assholes like this to accept that they live in the modern world and deal with it.

It is Phil Robertson’s 2nd time being named Asshole of the Day. His previous win was for his anti-gay and racist comments to GQ magazine.

"If you think homosexuality is an unnatural condition, I cannot agree with you."
Kevin Rudd smashes a pastor’s views on marriage equality on Q&A [x]

(via unlikeanyoneelse)

The fact of the matter is, it doesn’t matter whether or not you think homosexuality is a sin. Let me say that again. It does not matter if you think homosexuality is a sin, or if you think it is simply another expression of human love. It doesn’t matter. Why doesn’t it matter? Because people are dying. Kids are literally killing themselves because they are so tired of being rejected and dehumanized that they feel their only option left is to end their life. As a Youth Pastor, this makes me physically ill. And as a human, it should make you feel the same way. So, I’m through with the debate.

When faced with the choice between being theologically correct…as if this is even possible…and being morally responsible, I’ll go with morally responsible every time.

Thank you Ellen for showing us once again how to react to homophobia with class and humour.
