Gross. Disgusting. Weird. Watching NFL players kiss wives, girlfriends

And the people who think it goes against Christianity may want to consider the fact that football has it’s roots in passing around a ball made of pig skin and that most games take place on the Sabbath - also against Levitical law.

Kansas Approves "Turn Away the Gay" Law Legalizing Discrimination Against Gay Couples—And Singles

Dan Savage, thestranger.com

Maybe the question should be, “What isn’t the matter with Kansas?”The Kansas state legislature is on the verge of approving—and Kansas’s Republican governor has pledged to sign—a bill that legalizes discrimination against gay couples.…

Sad day for Kansas

Sen. Kelsey introduces 'Turn The Gays Away' Bill

Tennessee is giving Russia a run for its money with a new bill that would allow businesses to refuse to provide goods and services to LGBTQ people. 

What is more ridiculous about this bill is the fact that businesses already have the right to refuse someone goods/services, employment, or even entry on the basis of their sexual orientation. Tennessee has no anti-discrimination laws in place the prohibit the discrimination of LGBTQ people so the bill would be completely redundant.

Rob Ford says he will skip World Pride in Toronto

Well it looks like Rob Ford will be missing the biggest event Toronto has hosted since he was elected mayor. You know, because that’s what mayors of cities do, they don’t attend their cities largest events right?

Not that the LGBTQ community is really going to miss him though. The man has never been a friend of the community and has refused to apologize for the homophobic comments he has made in at least two videos now, because apparently when you’re the mayor of a cosmopolitan city like Toronto with a huge LGBTQ community that’s what you do as well. 

Time for another mayor who will represent all of the citizens of this great city, instead of excluding the ones who rub him the wrong way (er… or don’t want to rub at all, ugh).

"C*ck Sucker" - Mayor Rob Ford

After a video surfaced yesterday of Mayor Rob Ford at an Etobicoke eatery (the Steak Queen) in the early hours of Tuesday Jan. 21st, visually intoxicated, speaking at times in Jamaican patois and calling Toronto police chief Bill Blair a “c*ck sucker”, Mayor Ford responded to video:

I said I was there, I met some friends. If I speak that way that’s how I speak with some of my friends. I don’t think it’s discriminative at all. It’s my own time, it’s my own time," (source)

Perhaps Rob Ford was so drunk that he doesn’t remember what he said, one of his blackouts #inadrunkenstupor. Perhaps he hadn’t seen the video that he was speaking to the press about. Or perhaps Mayor Ford simply doesn’t understand that calling someone a “c*ck sucker” is offensive and homophobic. 

Maybe Ford is just so stupid that he doesn’t understand how that can be seen as homophobic. If trying to belittle another man by saying that he engages in oral sex with other men as an insult in his mind is not offensive and homophobic then he’s seriously on crack. 

What truly gets me though is that Mayor Ford was irate when a reporter called him a “fat f*ck”. He clearly took great offense to that, as shown in the video below. But yet he can call someone homophobic slurs and that’s supposed to be okay?

I also take great offense to the fact that the media has not made a bigger deal about this. If a politician of a major US city made that comment the media outlets south of the border would be raking him over the coals right now. There would be outcry and demands for an apology to the Queer community. Yet here so little has been mentioned regarding it and I have heard only one reporter pose a question about it. Passive homophobia, allowing these comments to go unchecked, can be just as bad as the person making the comments.

The media outlets in Toronto should be ashamed of themselves, as should Rob Ford.

The Queer community deserves an apology both from Rob Ford for his comments and from the media outlets for ignoring them.

Yes he calls the Toronto Chief of Police a homophobic slur and yes he mimics Jamaican patois but as we all learned back in November being in a drunken stupor is like being in the movie The Purge. You have a free pass to do/say anything
