People who wonder what people like me fear? This is a large part of it. The hatred and violence here is so extreme that I can taste in the back of throat. This is not the way, people.

His mother: Oh, I support you. I just dont support what you do, […] and I have a lot of friends that are gay, but they’re friends…

People who wonder what people like me fear? This is a large part of it. The hatred and violence here is so extreme that I can taste in the back of my throat. This is not the way, people. Let me be clear here. Both sides were in the wrong. Both the boy coming out and his family. They both handled this poorly. This isn’t the way for either side, and it makes me so sad to hear this conversation and see this violence.

Shit straight guys say to lesbians

Just posted this on my FB page…

The law just passed in Kansas and the law Ted Cruz and his cronies are trying to pass in the US Senate terrify me because they’re akin to the Jim Crow laws of times past. I want you to think about this very seriously. These law say it is okay to deny serving me food, allowing me to purchase an item from a store, or be in certain locations simply because I’m not heterosexual. If I want to do those things, I can go to a store that serves ‘my kind’. Separate but equal. Does that sound familiar at all to you? A fight is coming, and it’s going to be long and hard. When you pick sides, think about it on a personal level. If you’re my friend, keep me in mind. Put me in place of the nameless, faceless non-heterosexual that is being denied because of these laws and ask yourself, “Am I okay with my friend being treated this way?” If your answer is yes, unfriend me now. I won’t be upset. I won’t be angry, but I don’t want you to act like you’re my friend while supporting the idea that my basic civil rights are less than yours because of something I cannot change about myself. God knows I tried.

I have 170 friends on FB right now. Let’s see how many people I lose.

It’s totally cool that Jon Stewart is getting so much play for calling out the hypocrisy and homophobia in the NFL but this guy up here is Dale Hansen, a pretty conservative dude at a pretty conservative new station in the DFW area and he’s pretty huge in sportscasting and he just straight up called the NFL out and admitted that why he doesn’t get gay people it gives him, and straight folks, no right to condemn, judge or be intolerant towards them.

Also he was all “the best defensive end ever is that low in the draft pick? That IS shocking.”

The Coke “Controversy”

On FB, I’m having a conversation about Oklahoma Rep. Sally Kern, and part of the conversation rolled into what I stated above. I felt the need to share it here because it is something I strongly believe.
That is what I strive toward. I strive to educate through how I live and what I do as much as what I say. I feel like, if the first issue was taken care of, the rest would fall away.
It may be small steps, but sometimes that’s all you have, and some movement is better than none at all.
