If they can why can’t we? Am I right? Or do we not have the right to free speech?
no you don’t get to have straight pride you stupid fuck
politicians don’t fight to have straight marriage banned. parents do not kick their children out of their homes because they’re straight. friends do not abandon their friends once they realize they’re straight. people are not assaulted by bigots for being straight. people do not commit suicide because everyone around them treated them like shit for being straight
you have nothing to be proud of. you haven’t been discriminated against or insulted for being heterosexual. you haven’t struggled to feel normal in a society which tells you that being queer is unnatural. you don’t get a straight pride because you don’t fucking need one
i cannot fucking believe that there are still people who want “straight” pride
go fuck yourself
Our favorite story this week — here’s Lawrence and Jimmy, a Ugandan couple that fled their home country to marry abroad.
Sweden has now granted them asylum after they received death threats from Uganda. Thank you Sweden!
We LOVE Lawrence and Jimmy….
Girl Arrested and Expelled From High School Over Gay Relationship
Earlier this school year, Florida’s Sebastian River High School senior Kaitlyn Hunt began a relationship with a fellow classmate, a 15-year old girl. This past February, soon after her 18th birthday, she was arrested and charged with two felony counts of lewd and lascivious battery on a child 12–16 years of age.
Argentina JUST PASSED a groundbreaking gender identity bill!!!

Argentina is just getting more awesome by the year. Countries that aren’t Argentina need to take note.
Over 100 schools in Georgia say ‘No Gays Allowed!’ – and still get $170 million from the public to do it.
Georgia lawmakers want to add millions more to this voucher program that supports schools who explicitly ban gay and lesbian students. Politicians think this is about being re-elected, instead of about students being treated fairly. But, they won’t be able to ignore state education officials who’s job it is to make sure all Georgia students get the education they deserve.
The Georgia School Superintendent, John D. Barge, could make it clear that outright discrimination is just not acceptable. So far he’s avoided this political controversy – so we need to give him a straightforward way to be heard by state legislators. We’re asking him to answer one simple question: Do you think gay or lesbian students should be expelled from publicly-funded schools for who they are? His answer can make equality, not partisanship, the priority.

President Obama. I love you. I mean it.
Today, same-sex marriage is legal in Maryland. (By the way, congrats!) Alas, not everyone’s a fan. The guy above, for example, who stopped a popular wedding trolley business that earned him $50,000 per year because he didn’t want to have to serve gay couples due to his Christian beliefs.
hahahaha thank you LA times for such a great picture filled with hilarious innuendoes.

This project was inspired by the courage of soldiers like Stephen Snyder-Hill, who was booed on national television during a Republican debate when he asked whether the candidates would reinstate Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. It is currently raising funds on Kickstarter.
