Earlier this year Millicent Gaika, a 30-year-old South African woman, was tied up, beaten, strangled, tortured and raped for five hours by a man as he screamed that he would “cure” Millicent of her lesbianism.
Ndumie Funda, a local community activist whose lesbian partner was…
ooooh tumblrrr I have an early Christmas present for all of you from Fox News
TROLL. THAT. SHIT.
Its easier for a 14 year old girl to keep her baby than it is for them to keep theirs. Lets just dwell on this for a second.
^ society is fucked.
And here it is!
Long awaited, a typographic poster for my Visual Organization and Media class about gender! Huzzah!
What do ya’ll think?
I know a lot of you have seen this picture, but do you know the message behind it? The Pride Project (the photo is two of the founders!) is about using art as a way to combat LGBT bullying, hate, homophobia and everything in between. As we’ve seen, the bullied youth of todays society have resorted to self harm, and suicide as a way to get out of the situation. This is not fair, and it is not right! Via The Pride Project, these two amazing people hope to show everyone, and reach out to the youth to let them know that it does get better; Through the encouragement of forming Gay-Straight Alliance groups in high schools and that they can express themselves and use art, and the connections you make through art instead of suicide, these kids need to know that they can get through and they are not alone!
I’ve been honored to begin working with Ayden and Kylie (the photo) on an event that will occur on the University of Southern California campus on January 18 2011! The two of them will be there, along with Whitney Mixter of The Real L Word, and Saby Labor of USC, all to speak on behalf of The Pride Project, their experiences, bullying and the importance of art. The event will be a silent auction of submitted art pieces, and this is the important part…
- WE WANT ART SUBMITTED BY YOU!
By anyone. By everyone! We will put them all on display, and then the proceeds made from the piece will go to the Pride Project funds, making it that much closer to becoming a legal non-profit organization.
PLEASE start thinking about art to submit, we’d love to see it and show it off!

Catholic Priest Father Geoff Farrow when he handcuffed himself to the White House to protest the fact that Don’t Ask Don’t Tell has not yet been repealed as promised, calling it the “evil policy that strips the LGBTQ community of its human dignity.”
See his blog here: http://fathergeofffarrow.blogspot.com/
This guy is pretty fucking awesome.
I have so much respect for the people who did this. The fact that a catholic priest would do it is just so great to me.
I want to hug him
How can you ignorant fucks list homophobia with issues that are so so so much more important to the world?
Tumblr you suck sometimes, fo’ real you do.
Oooooh look at me, I live in a first world country and sometimes rednecks say mean things to me because I dress like a fucking man whore all the time because apparently being gay gives me a license to do so, then I complain when people make fun of me!
I am more important than poverty because I am like… so much more important!
Fucking queers sometimes…
*I have many gay relatives whom I am very close to, so go and jump in front of a train before you hop on your high horse you delinquent fucktard.
Excuse me, I am going to vomit.
How dare you suggest that homosexuals are any less worthy of equality? How is homophobia any different from racism? They’re both discrimination against groups of people who have no control over the things for which they’re being targeted. Black people are born black. White people are born white. Straight people are born straight. Gay people are born gay. How dare you say that this issue is any less important? People are dying, people are suffering, and these people are no less important than the victims of anything else. It’s people like you that perpetuate this toxic fucking environment for them.
Quit hiding your homophobia behind condescending self-congratulation and this whole facade that you’re just being ~edgy and real. This is absolutely disgusting and abhorrent and the fact that you dare try to pass yourself off as being tolerant or justified in anything you’re saying with a fucking disclaimer at the end makes it even worse. You should be fucking ashamed of yourself.
How are they different?
Gays weren’t enslaved for centuries, that’s how they are different, you ignorant racist fuckwit.
Fuck you are indignant.
Go and eat some dicks you slut.
Shit, I need a second to let the classiness waft over me.
I have no words.
I HAVE NO WORDS
That’s the only conclusion that can be drawn here:
The Salvation Army is threatening to close soup kitchens for tens of thousands of New York’s homeless and walk away from other projects if the city enacts legislation requiring firms that do business with New York to offer health benefits to the partners of gay staffers. The evangelical faith is prepared to give up the $70 million a year in city funding it receives and pull out of New York entirely the New York Post reports…
An official from the organization is quoted as saying that opposing gayness is a deep theological issue for them. Funny, he doesn’t say that about, you know, helping the poor. This is a good time to remind readers that when you see the Salvation Army Santas, it’s best to take whatever money you would be inclined to give them and give it instead to a better, more loving organization that does the same work.
Put an end to “Don’t Ask, Don’t tell”
