The 2 Gays On a Mission to Un-F–k The Gulf

Is the Haiti earthquake disaster over? No, but that doesn’t mean gay activists (as in, activists who are gay) Luke Montgomery and Nate Guidas — who say they’ve raised $30k through their insta-charity Cause Commandos — are done with do-gooding. So they launched UnF–kTheGulf.com (yes, with the hyphens) to generate cash via t-shirt sales for this group of charities. Yes, BP and the equipment companies should be on the hook for the clean up bill, but we’ve still got pelicans, dolphins, and people’s livelihoods to save.

(Video contains lots of F-word usage.)

      Some people should just be told ‘NO’. The guys who created this campaign should just go away and not make this shit worse.

      I’m not sure about the kid cursing. The F word seems pretty mundane now, but I don’t use it :(

      Unclear on the concept

      Sorry, but as a longtime resident of Seattle who remembers him from the days of Luke Sissyfag, I have to seriously question anything Luke Montgomery is involved in. He is a relentless self-promoter who will do anything to claim the spotlight.

      Luke started out as a self-proclaimed AIDS activist best known for attacking openly gay officials who disagreed with him about AIDS policies. When we stopped paying attention to him, he suddenly rejected the gay lifestyle and began appearing on fundamentalist radio and tv, decrying gay people as “totally devoid of any moral character” and calling anti-discrimination laws “fascistic”.

      Now he’s gay again and jumping on whatever cause of the moment gets him on camera for a minute or two. So as much as I like the concept of Unf–k The Gulf, I really can’t encourage GLBT people to give this media whore a penny of our money.

      I’ve only watched two minutes of this video and suddenly those idiot British Petroleum executives and engineers don’t seem that bad by comparison.

      Sometimes too much F–k is just too much. The ad should have stopped at 1 minute in length max.

      Maybe it’s just me but I think this type of anger can have a positive impact. Too many people are just accepting the destruction of our earth from this company. We all should be mad as F–k about BP and our government’s inaction.

      @Wyatt: How can they possibly make it worse. They are as frustrated as the rest of us and it is becoming more apparent that the international community doesn’t give a crap about this. So WE(those of us close to and effected by this disaster) have to.

      I think the video is fucking brilliant!

      And if the word “fuck” offends, what about the fucking oil fucking everything the fuck up? Isn’t the oil a bigger fucking problem than the word “fuck”? or “f–k”?

      @Wyatt:

      Sorry your comment got bombed out of view. Having seen this guy in action in his early days learning to grab the spotlight, I seriously question anything Mr. Montgomery is involved in. He is a relentless self-promoter who will do anything for attention.

      In the early 90s Montgomery changed his name to Luke Sissyfag, billing himself as an AIDS activist, but he was best known for attacking openly gay officials and allies in the Seattle area who disagreed with him about AIDS policies. When we learned to ignore him, he suddenly rejected the gay lifestyle and began appearing on fundamentalist radio and tv, decrying gay people as “totally devoid of any moral character” and calling anti-discrimination laws “fascistic”.

      Now he’s gay again and jumping on whatever cause of the moment gets him on camera for a minute or two. So far this year he’s flitted from saving orphans Haiti to the oil spill. Makes you wonder if he’s stalking Anderson Cooper.

      I thought the video was hilarious and laughed all the way through. The campaign seems hip and attention grabbing. I am definitely not turned off by the word FUCK nor am I uncomfortable with hearing it repeatedly especially when it’s for a good cause. I wouldn’t mind buying the cool shirt and helping out a few of those poor fucking dolphins.

      Really care about the gulf? Go to one or more of: http://lagulfresponse.org, http://greenpeace.org/usa, http://earthjustice.org, or http://lawraonline.com (the same charities the makers of the t-shirt are donating to).

      That way, you can spend the $13 on charity, instead of spending $13 on a t-shirt (while only $5 go to charity).

      It wasn’t so much offensive as it was boring. The length of the clip coupled with the fact that “fuck” has been made hackneyed by media didn’t really help the cause. Wait, there was a cause? I don’t care about dolphins. I’d rather get this shirt:
