Louisiana House votes to uphold ban on sodomy

gaywrites:

The Louisiana House yesterday voted to uphold an unconstitutional state ban on sodomy — essentially political jargon for gay sex — as part of its “crimes against nature” law. 

In Lawrence v. Texas in 2003, the Supreme Court ruled that sodomy bans are unconstitutional. But a handful of states, including Louisiana, refuse to change their anti-sodomy laws. While the statute technically can’t be used as a basis to arrest people, Louisiana deputies have reportedly made sodomy-related arrests recently, inciting a lawmaker to try to repeal it. 

Against all logic or reason, on Tuesday, the state House voted 66-27 to keep the anti-sodomy law in place. 

In a letter urging Louisiana lawmakers to reject the proposal, the influential Christian lobbying organization wrote, “Louisiana’s anti-sodomy statute is consistent with the values of Louisiana residents who consider this behavior to be dangerous, unhealthy, and immoral.”

In a hearing earlier this month, Bill Smith, a member of the Louisiana Family Forum, told committee members that anti-sodomy laws save the lives of gay people by decreasing their exposure to HIV.

"I have homosexuals in my family. I’m here out of love and concern for the health of these people," Smith said in April. “The fact is this opens up ways for them to really kill themselves.”

I want to scream and cry and throw things. 

…as if sodomy was exclusively gay.

  • Louisiana, where alcoholism is a competitive sport.
  • Louisiana, where prostituting yourself in exchange for a string of cheap plastic beads is perfectly acceptable.
  • Louisiana, where drunks parade naked down main street, but it’s okay because… Mardis Gras!
  • Louisiana, No Homo!

Give me a fricken break. Louisiana is the LAST place that should be legislating morality! :\

Sounds DIVINE! Hahaha…
Screencap from Tight Spot (1955)

Sherry Conley (Ginger Rogers), a street tough and cynical woman with an unhappy family background, is taken from prison to a hotel, where the DA (Edward G. Robinson) tries to convince her to testify against a mobster. Sherry is reluctant because the last witness was murdered before he made it to the stand, and why should she stick her neck out? At the hotel, several attempts are made on her life, and she falls for Vince (Brian Keith), the policemen guarding her.- IMDB

Look for Lorne Greene as Benjamin Costain

Sounds DIVINE! Hahaha…

Homophobia (noun) The unreasonable fear that gay men will objectify you in the same way you treat women, as objects to be dominated.

*claps b/c awesomeness*

perfection.

Besides, contrary to what you might think, we’re not interested in having sex with every single naked man we see.

In fact, we’d rather not have sex with most of you. :\

NBA to donate all proceeds from Jason Collins jersey sales to LGBT organizations

gaywrites:

The NBA announced last week that 100% of the proceeds from Jason Collins jersey sales will benefit the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN) and the Matthew Shepard Foundation. They’ve pledged that the donation amount will total at least $100,000.

The NBA will also auction off his signed jerseys to raise money for the same causes.

Since he signed with the Nets on Feb. 23 and was added to the roster, Collins’ jersey has been the top-seller at NBAStore.com, the league said.

Collins wears No. 98 to honor the memory of Shepard, a college student who was killed in an anti-gay hate crime in 1998. Collins met with Shepard’s parents following Thursday’s game at Denver.

“I’m thrilled to work with the league to support two fantastic organizations, both of which work tirelessly to ensure LGBT youth get the resources and assistance they need to be successful in life,” Collins said in a statement.

This is the actual best thing. To buy yours — AKA make a large donation to these organizations and get a “free” jersey out of it — click here. (Full disclosure - I work at one of these organizations, but this would be totally cool even if I didn’t!) 

Speechless.
