Because seriously, I’ve read a lot of truly distressing anti-gay stories this week.
Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio classifies gay people with murderers and rapists in its curriculum. A sociological course on “deviant behavior” includes, along with criminal behaviors like murder, rape, and robbery, the existence of homosexuals. Err, homosexuality is not deviant behavior, it is just non-normative behavior, those are two different things. In addition to being homophobic, they’re also whorephobic and ableist. Sorry, sex work and mental illness are not the same thing as murder. Nice try.
The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) (am I the only person who hears the abbreviation and thinks about cats going OMNOMNOMNOMNOM?) likes to claim that it isn’t homophobic. It’s just protecting traditional marriage! However, a nice gentleman who works for Media Matters went undercover at Omnomnomnom’s anti-gay student conference, and guess what? They actually hate gay people. I’m sure this is a surprise to everyone.
Did you know that gay relationships are dysfunctional and inherently unstable, because the gay partners get bored of each other because they have the same gender? Or that gay stereotypes are proven correct because sometimes pro-gay websites have advertisements for Grindr and pet grooming services? Or that lesbian relationships are unstable because the women’s menstrual cycles get synced up and then they PMS at the same time and break up? Or that gay people are, like, all pedophiles? Or that STIs are God’s payback for queer people engaging in immoral sexual behavior? Or that homosexuality is self-degrading! These are just a few of the exciting things I learned about gay people from reading about NOM’s conference! It’s amazing how many things about homosexuality I didn’t learn by being a bi genderqueer in a long-term relationship with someone with the same bits as me.
Apparently Hurricane Isaac is the fault of the dirty queers in New Orleans. Man, all I got when my area got hit by Isaac was a bit of rain. Literally, it was sunny all day, which is the most ridiculous hurricane ever. Clearly I need to schedule some more orgies so God hates me properly.
Happier news! Ex-gay therapy is progressing towards being banned in California. Not only is ex-gay therapy incredibly homophobic, but it’s also ridiculously gender-policing, mostly directed at men. Did you know that you can make your child less gay by making him play with boy toys and going out to play football with him? Such is the advice provided by ex-gay therapists.
