ooI just watched 'My Summer of Love' and am feeling just downright pissed.

Firstly, and most loudly. CAN WE STOP WITH THE FUCKING PSYCHO GAY PEOPLE ALREADY!!!!!!!

Holy shit people! This isn't the fucking 1950s! We're supposed to have grown up a bit since then and realised that being gay is not actually a mental illness!

If it was just that film, I wouldn't have minded. It was okay as a film, if disjoined and the acting was pretty bad. It had great use of colour and interesting relationships otherwise. But no, you look at all the films out nowdays, and all the gay characters are either mad or unhappy (the last is in deference to Brokeback Mountain more than anything else). Posidon- The guy was threatening suicide.  Little Miss Sunshine- The guy actually tried to commit suicide. I could go on, but fuck, my blood pressure's high enough as it is. What is the media saying here? Being gay is bad and you die sad and unhappy and alone! (because nothing actually gets better for any of these characters) Right. Please line up the directors, because I have a sharp katana which has a date with their balls (or lack of them).

Oh yes, and while you're at it, line up the leaders of the religious reich, because I'd like to castrate them too while I'm at it.

Sorry, that was very little about the film, but I needed to rant.

So there's all this wanking on about this gay rights meme going around, I'm not sure what the fuss is about (retarded as usual), I get that kind of shit all the time of Yahoo, and I just ignore it.
Anyway, in that vein of thought, here are some of my favourtie gay rights quotes:

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.  ~Dr. Seuss

If time and space are curved, where do all of the straight people come from?  ~Author Unknown

No government has the right to tell its citizens when or whom to love.  The only queer people are those who don't love anybody.  ~Rita Mae Brown, speech, 28 August 1982

When it comes to exploring the sea of love, I prefer buoys. ~ Andrew G. Dehel

If homosexuality is a disease, let's all call in queer to work:  "Hello.  Can't work today, still queer."  ~Robin Tyler

My lesbianism is an act of Christian charity.  All those women out there praying for a man, and I'm giving them my share.  ~Rita Mae Brown

When I was in the military they gave me a medal for killing two men and a discharge for loving one.  ~Epitaph of Leonard P. Matlovich, 1988

Who would give a law to lovers?  Love is unto itself a higher law.  ~Boethius, The Consolation of Philosophy, A.D. 524

I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do, because I notice it always coincides with their own desires.   ~Susan B. Anthony on Selective Bible Quoting

"Don't let the people who live on fear and hate govern how you live."--Melissa Etheridge

Homosexuality is being attracted by members of the same gender, hetrosexuality to that of the opposite gender, bisexuality to both, and Asexuality to none, then is there a name for those people who just have better things to do than think about sex? It not asexuality, you still get sexual urges, but have absolutely no desire to have a romantic relationship, and see those urges on a purely physical level- as something to be taken care of and not bother too much over?

Is there a namje for that? And as one of those people, why am I so happy to write fictional relationship *coughRaistlincoughDalamarcough*, while caring not a whit for being in one myself?

Found this on [personal profile] xerox78's journal:

True Story: A religion teacher assigned her class an essay on what makes a good Christian. One student wrote about praying nightly, say no to abortion, banning gay marriage, and donating money. The other student wrote about talking to God and allowing people to enjoy their lives, and supporting gay marriage. The day the teacher was to hand the papers back, she called up the second student and told him she would pray for him when he went to hell. The student asked why would he be going to hell, and why he got an F on his paper. The teacher told him that Catholicism is against gay marriage. The student looked at her for a minute, then said aloud, "I'm gay." The teacher kicked him out of class as if he had said fuck or worshiped Satan. A girl in the back of class who had a boyfriend and was obviously straight got up and left too.

If you would leave the classroom, repost this. It doesn't matter if you're straight, bi, or gay. It doesn't matter if you're Catholic or not. Everyone is a human being and deserves happiness.

Another crushing day at work, dealing with the bigotry of the people I work with. I've never been so glad for my ability to get on with people, my old group psychiatrists who worked their fingers to the bone with me should be proud. I didn't even shove the guy through the paper shredder when he went on he 'Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve' speil, although I sure as hell wanted to. Hell,l I wanted to shove that turban up his arse and make him eat it, the bastard!

The others aren't any better, Gods, they way they go on, they have such a knowlege of anal sex that I can't help but wonder if they're as disgusted by it as they appear, but no, better make it a disgusting act, never mind that vaginal sex is just as disgusting (hell, it's sex, it's sicky and unpleasent and there are a lot of weird smells and nasty liquids, it's the intent that justifies the act, not the mechanics), because we're not homophobes, oh no, we wouldn't beat them up for being the way they are (but if a boy/girlfriend admitted he/she swung both ways, we'd kick the shit out of them and laugh about it afterwards). And transexuals, oh isn't it disgusting how they parade around like that (when they walk up the street), if they came near me I'd run, it's so unnatural, they're all sick in the head.

And there's me, trying to assert some sense in their little pointy heads, sense I learnt from talking to people who are GLBT, rather than some drunk idiots at a bar. No, people do have a right to dress like that, no bloodplay is not the same as anal sex, no, you are not open minded, YOU ARE A BUNCH OF BRAINLESS BIGOTS! You think you have a leg to stand on? Hell, if anyone's sick it's us, ringing up poor old ladies and trying to sell them mobility aids they don't want! It sure as hell won't be people who happen to be in love or who happen to have been born in the wrong body!

It's so grinding, putting up with this. They wouldn't talk like this if they'd met the people I had, let's send them to the Way Out for an evening, and let them get to know the various trannies and transexuals that go there to have a great time and accept everyone who wants to share their club, let them come to the Pride parade with me and meet all the cool people there. Let them meet all these people who are, above all, people, with the same brains and souls as we have. And let them see, as I did, that we have absolutly NO FUCKING RIGHT to critisise them on the basis of who they love.

Let them eat slash.

I am... 

I am the guy who came out to the entire school in his senior speech and got a standing ovation for his courage. 

I am the girl who kisses her girlfriend on the sidewalk and laughs at those who glare. 

We are the couple who planned and studied and got a damn good lawyer and BEAT the state that wanted to take our child away. 

We are the ones who took martial arts classes and carry pepper spray and are just too dangerous to gay bash. 

I am the transgender person who uses the bathroom that suits me, and demands that any complaining staff explain their complaint to my face in front of the entire restaurant--and shares with my other trans friends which restaurants don't raise a stink.

The last dedicated to my friend [profile]  chetwynd_hayes who's doctors have finally given him the go-ahead. Rock on.

I am the mother who told her lesbian daughter to invite her girlfriend over for dinner.  That would be my mum :)

I am the father who punished his son for calling you a fag.  That would be my stepdad.

I am the preacher who told my congregation that love, not hate, is the definition of a true follower of God.  I don't know any preachers, but I'd get on with that one.

I am the girl who did not learn the meaning of "homosexual" until high school but never thought to question why two men might be kissing.  Heh, that would be me.

I am the woman who argues (quite loudly and vehemently) with the bigots who insist that you do not have the right to marry or raise children.  That would be the woman on the tube who stood up to some thugs when they were making disparaging remarks about gay people.

We are the high school class who agrees, unanimously, along with our teacher, that love should be all that matters.  That would be my Uni poetry class

If you agree, repost this. Do it. You don't have to be afraid. You can handle it. You're stronger than you think.  I'm not scared. People have to stand up to bigotry.

I am making a difference. Hate will not win.  Amen!

Been reading about Fred Phelps, at first the guy used to enrage me, until I started seeing the funny side. This guy has gone off the deep end in such a big way that it can even get me angry any more. This guy is such a certified nutcase that his bellowing can get me remotely angry any more. It was like that flame I recieved a few years back,

To quote: "you aint fuckin human tell me where u live and ill murder you sick bastard FAGOT/bastard/asshole/loser/gay/bumfucker/brother fucker/"

*snicker* In response to this, I wrote another chapter. Fred Phelps is like this, he's so mad you can't take the guy seriously.

But that doesn't mean I can't daydream about tearing all his daft signs down and putting in their stead billboards proudly displaying slash slogans. ;)

Ah, even Jerry Farwell says he's nuts, and I hate Jerry Farwell.

Anyway, back to google, watching that guy make himself a laughing stock always cheers me up. You can even predict what he's going to do next now, everything is the fault of the gay community. Hurricane Katrina? Their fault. The Tsunami last year? Their fault, there were Polish people there (Poland has legalised gay marridge or something). The holocaust? Their fault (yeah, go figure).

*snort*
