Anti-Gay Bullying 101

An Education In Hate

Union-Scioto High School in Chillicothe, Ohio. A place where reading, writing & arithmetic, like most schools, are considered the normal topics of learning for the day but instead, homophobia & intolerance 101 became the lessons learned.

As the student tries to escape his attacker, he was heard saying "why are you doing this?" As his fellow classmates stood by & did nothing.

The shocking video was captured by a student's cellphone which was later posted to Facebook.

The bully's punishment for this horrific attack, 3 days suspension!

How many more young lives will suffer or end at the hands or mouths of bullies?

Coffee Sure To Leave A Bitter Taste

Take That Gay Affection Elsewhere...

Out & about looking for a place to get your next java fix? Near a Tim Hortons? Consider spending your pink dollars elsewhere as the recent event at one of their southern Ontario stores will leave a bad taste in the mouth of any LGBT consumer or one who supports equality.

On a recent trip to a Tim Hortons, a lesbian couple says they had been asked to leave or the police would be called because of a complaint of "inappropriate behavior" (hand holding & some kisses) was brought to the store manager's attention by a customer who had also happened to be a pentecostal minister.

Eric Revie, the assistant pastor of Glad Tidings Community Church says he did not ask the manager to ask them to leave but instead told the manager he did not want his young children to see such "lewd" behavior.

Tim Hortons posted a somewhat apology on it's Facebook page & invited the couple to return.

As a long time dedicated follower of Tim Hortons, my pink dollars & I will now reconsider where I get that next cup of java in the future...

New Hampshire Marriage Equality Under Threat

Marriage Equality, A Threat To New Hampshire

 "Let the majority (GOP) decide on minorities civil rights"

Even though the MAJORITY of New Hampshire citizens oppose repealing marriage equality...

As progress in LGBT rights slowly moves forward on the national stage, the desire to push them back in some states by those who continue to feel we as a community are not worthy of the "special" rights so many heterosexuals take for granted.

Take New Hampshire, "Live Free Or Die," where dealing with the issues of jobs & the economy take a back seat by those such as Rep Gregory Sorg (R) who still believe we, the LGBT community remain the biggest threat to society. Rep Sorg, in a recent statement said, "gay marriage will cause harm to society over time, even if it's not evident now." Going on to further say, "Some societal changes take generations to manifest themselves."

Estimated Expenditures would increase $50,500 to "correct" the wrongs of the state in fy 2012.

Contact your state Representative or, if you are not a resident but have family/friends from New Hampshire, tell them to help take a stand against this injustice by contacting their Representative & asking them to vote no on Bill 437 because hate & inequality has no place in the state of "Live Free Or Die."
