Important only if you pay attention to what the blogs have to say.
We’re just pleased Mediaite remembered this headline: “THAT’S IT: Obama Has Spat and Shit In the Faces of Gay America.”
Now, it’s not that we’re critical of the sitting president. We just have zero tolerance policy when it comes to lying to gay Americans and refusing to support full equality. Oh, that’s the same thing?
Seriously. Chill. It’s been only a few months and you’re expecting him to just flip a switch. He still has over three years to achieve YOUR goals. Just like “repeal” is a word you say isn’t in his vocab, maybe “patience” isn’t in yours. How about a better economy? Something close to universal healthcare? Those are two things I can live with seeing accomplished before we get into gay rights. Chill. He has time. Stop being impatient. THere is a process and saying shit like this over and over only makes you look bad.
“They might succeed if their snark didn’t translate into insults indiscriminately being hurled at everyone and anyone.”
Quoted for truth.
Don’t flatter yourselves, I doubt if anyone in the WH or DC takes this site seriously, especially in light of the fact that other than screeching headlines it has done nothing to get the glbt agenda of fairness and equality pushed forward gossip and twinks in speedo’s doth not make you a politcal blog. About the only thing that you have done is let the foaming at the mouth posters spew the same hate you and they claim to denounce, well, when its directed at them.
@Furonda Brown: If OUR goals aren’t YOUR goals then FUCK YOU and YOUR goals all the way to the White House. And take that Damned Poutrage Pony with you.
I supported Obama, and while I know it’s hard to be patient while he ignores, waffles and actually (in an instance or two),lies to us….
I REALLY APPRECIATE Queerty’s reporting and style of reporting on our Current President and his promises.
We had 8 years of a lying bastard who made us scapegoats for every wrong in society. Bush victimized us in some of the worst ways imaginable and I see absolutely NOTHING wrong with holding this President accountable.
The gay ‘community’ is so apathetic and shallow sometimes as a whole…we need to get fired up again and WORK/FIGHT for our rights. I firmly believe now is the time.
THANK YOU QUEERTY!!!!!
@Dabq: Why are you still here? Does it feed the victim perpetuation thing you got going on? Seriously, you are so HuffPo it’s kinda gross.
Joe Mustich, Justice of the Peace
Re: Obama, DOMA, DADT, increased “war” funding and aggression, a national health program w/o single payer, bail-outs for the Wall St banksters who looted America, same old, same old on Israel-Palestine…etc, etc
Some change, more like short changed…..
And he acting more and more like Bush with a tan these days…..
But I’m not surprised. And I didn’t vote for him or any corporate Dem.
Can you give me specific examples of racism that you say are so prevalent on this site? Because all I see is you talking about it and never actually seeing the racism itself.
FUCK YES YOU ARE!
I agree with the first comment. He has plenty of time to focus on gay rights. Stop being so selfish and realize that he can help a larger percentage of the population by focusing on economic reform/recover and universal health care (a far greater tragedy than our not being able to get married). While allowing gays to marry may help both of those things the effect is not as great as our self-centeredness leads us to believe.
Within the last month, he has done well to acknowledge that he will accomplish goals such as getting rid of DADT and DOMA. Be patient people. Also, stop ignoring the fact that his work on healthcare and economic reform are not ALSO helping the gay community. After all, we are a community within the greater community of America.
This blog is certainly one of the most negative ones out their…sometimes I feel like I am reading Perez Hilton since commentary from the editors is frequently unnecessarily harsh – even to allies of our community. We will make progress through supporting each other and providing positive reinforcement – not being assholes.
Queerty is full of shit. There are bigger issues plaguing the nations and gay politics will ensure that they won’t get done and then you’ll be whining about how President Jindal or President Palin are not paying attention.
Queerty is politically shrill and naive and it’s old.
Yes guys, you are the MOST critical, without a doubt! Calling it like it is, that is true journalism and I commend you for it. These politicians need to be called on their actions or in this case the lack there of. The advocate always seems to focus on the positive which if you view the situation through the lens of reality just makes no sense at all. Keep up the good work!
Yes, and that is one of the things I love about this website.
Honesty and the balls to state it.
Queerty is full of shit. There are bigger issues plaguing the nations and gay politics will ensure that they won’t get done and then you’ll be whining about how President Jindal or President Palin are not paying attention.
Queerty is politically shrill and naive and it’s old.”
Douchetard Obamabot, you sound like the “pigs” in Animal Farm (ever read it) threating us with the fear of a worse oppressor.
Eff off PIG>
Typo “threatening” I don’t want to write like the Obamatwats.
@Orpheus_lost: My goals are your goals. I just have other goals that I would like to see accomplished as well. To expect things to be magically changing in an incredibly short period of time is somewhat naive as well. Who is to say that it’s not going to happen. We canstill make our voices heard and achieve our goals for equality without getting on our high horse beause it hasn’t happened in the time frame that you want. It’s like those saying that the stimulus package hasn’t worked in the short time it was passed – because it wasn’t meant to be done all at once.
I am a realist and I know that there is no way that Obama is going to flip a magic switch or sign an executive order making everything okay and right in our eyes. Can we ask for it – yes. Will it happen – no. Can we call out the shit when we see it – yes. But let’s be realistic with the timeline of our expectations. That’s all I ask. Our time will come.
Is the sky blue? Is grass green? Is Fred Phelps a homophobe? Does Micheal Lucas have a trout pout? Is Queerty a myopic gay bubble that always spins whatever sitaution is going on to paint Obama in a negative light?
Tim and Earl
Queerty is boldly queer-affirming – which is why we always check in here first to see what’s _really_ coming down on us queers from the non-queer top!
Keep on being rigorously honest.
The primary role in life for us non-heterosexuals is _not_ to make heterosexual-supremacists comfortable!
Heterosexism is the problem, so heterosexists have to fix it, not us!
Tim and Earl
p.s.: Obama’s heterosexist – he actually believes his marriage is superior to ours!
‘Heterosexism is the problem, so heterosexists have to fix it, not us!” Right, so I awlays wonder why other gay people want to be just like them. Asimilationism is in fact gay people trying to be like suburban hetero married couples . Who’s adjusting to whom? What happened to gay liberatioand identity
Queerities position seems to overlook the fact that there are more important issues to a country almost in the trash can than our issues which don’t given the situation deserve priority over everything else. I I was crazy about being like mom and dad Iwould move to another country that doesn’t have all of the priorities we do. Also most of what people seem to want is Congressional. What’s up?
Obama just got in office., and you’re peeing all over yourselves. How many letters anfd phone calls hasanyone made to legislators. I didn’t see Queerty announce that the Mathew Shepard Act is being voted on this week. This is very important. Employment and Education are basic for the community. I don’see anything about those issues.
Listen my little douchekit, you trot out your freeperspeak and pretend you are one of us when you are just another Republican bot who thinks Jesus will light your way.
“Obamabot” is so 2008 and you are a fucking pathetic tool who can’t even get a handle on being properly insulting. “Douchetard?”
You are a profusely discharging syphilitic cunt and no amount of intellectual penicillin can cure you of you idiocy.
The United States Senate is run on Seniority. As a freshman Senator, Obama had to wait for hours to ask a question in committee. He had to ask his question last. He is now President of the United States. He waited those hours and he paid his dues in many ways.
It is not luck that he is President of the United States. Anyone who throws this opportunity out the window is crazy.
@InExile (#12): “true journalism”?!! That is hilarious. Queerty’s remarkable anti-Obama slant has now become an agenda. They twist and distort anything gay-and-Obama-related, like any good toilet-paper-trash tabloid and Faux News would do.
As for the anti-Obama tirade by the regular commentators here (InExile, Galefan2004, Michael @Leonard-whatever ..), yes, the subtle racism is pretty much there – only nowadays it is spilling out more in the open what with the juvenile name-calling and using comments like “Punk DJ Obama”.
Anyone who takes political/social commentary by this site seriously, need to have their heads checked. But then, many of the screeching queens here really have fluff in between their ears.
@Tim and Earl:
“Queerty is boldly queer-affirming”
Au contraire. This website has done almost as much damage to the morale of those in the equality movement in Ca. this year as the mormons have the coverage is either badly researched, not researched at all or made up and sensationalistic. Grassroots activists doing good work have been unfairly maligned for the flimsiest reasons. There was an article where equality activists were maligned for being WHITE. Really? Queerty can be an enjoyable read and there are always pictures of smoking hot guys which is a plus but the political reporting is incredibly biased and the coverage of the continued Prop 8 fight has been harmful.
Do have another sip of the Advocate, I can see light at the end of the tunnel, Kool Aid!
@Thom: In fairness to DABQ, I have seen some pretty blatant racist posts and some gay posters have even been homophobic in some repects : “Wow, this guy (Victor Fahrenbach) has it going on and should be the face of DADT on tv and radio, since he is far better a spokesman for why its wrong and should be illegal, and his words were powerful, unlike that Choi guy who was just awful when he lisped it out.”
Posted: May 20, 2009 at 10:51 am
But when you look at other sites i.e. Advocate, etc., which doesn’t inject anything into headlines, there are just as many nutcases posting there, so I don’t think it’s anything unique to this site.
But then, many of the screeching queens here really have fluff in between their ears.
Nelly, fluffy queens with names like prissysissy, aside, of course!
Now, there’s a solid, feet-on-the-ground, sensibly named person who’s opinion one can take to the bank, obviously!
At any rate, Queerty I hope that blog brings you many new readers.
No, Queerty, I certainly would not use the word “critical” to describe your slant on Obama’s agenda. It’s more like a childish whine, sometimes a tantrum. This isn’t a drive through where you shriek your order, it’s the world of professional politics and there is so much to navigate.
Am I in OZ? Please Queerty, you are a joke to most folks. Poorly researched, lies, assumptions, mess…
This is the best laugh I had all day
@Furonda Brown: “You” became “us” pretty quickly there, so which is it? If you honestly support our civil rights as human beings then there is no such thing as saying that we can wait until the indefinite future to be called “people”. Either we are or we aren’t and right now, the president of the United States is saying we aren’t. So who do you side with?
As for the “magical switch” argument, that’s just insulting. We’re fags, not the mentally disabled. We know that nothing happens overnight, that’s why we keep pushing. If you want to use a stupid analogy, then our rights aren’t a switch that can just be turned on, they’re a three ton rock and we’ve got to find a way to shift it while several mouthbreathers are trying to push it back into place. It might not be easy and it won’t happen with the flick of a wrist, but it WILL happen with perseverance and determination – with each of us doing our part. The question is who is going to help us push and who is going to side with the inbreds?
@Orpheus_lost: No insult insinuated or implied. Yes I am happily and openly gay and I do consider myself a person and wonder why you don’t. Queerty and some of its denizens are of the ilk that just because something was promised in an election (no matter to whom it was promised). Obama promised to end income tax on seniors making less than 50K a year – campaign promise broken. He also said he would allow 5 days of public comment before signing bills – campaign promise broken. Tougher rules for lobbyists, tax credit for companies creating jobs, penalty free hardship withdrawals – all promises broken. But no one is in an uproar of any of those.
I’m not saying wait for the indefinite future and, in fact, I advocated keeping the pressure on to achieve the goals. HOWEVER, I also argued for some realistic thinking of what can and will be accomplished and what it will take to get it accomplished. That is what I am advocating. I grow increasingly tired of hearing Queerty bemoan the fact that Obama went to Bumfuck Iowa to talk about corn subsidies and ethanol and didn’t once mention the gay corn that’s out there. (Snarky I agree but I think it get the point across). Not everything in my world revolves around my sexuality and I don’t expect my president to spend every waking moment thinking about gay rights. You’re right, it’s not going to be easy. So let’s stop making it seem like it is easy and our president is impeding the progress that we desire and deserve. Would you prefer four more years of Bush/McCain/Palin where nothing is going to happen in our community’s favor or would you prefer to work with the president and help take the necessary steps that are needed to bring this to fruition.
And sadly, as the voters of California proved, rights, no matter who they belong to, can be turned off with the flick of a wrist. I’m all for pushing, but I’m also for realism and taking a step back to analyze the path I’m pushing and making sure it’s the most effective path.
I would say that although it is important that people express themselves, the myriad blogs in existence with their distinct and bellicose brands of criticism – precludes any notion that each blog is somehow necessary to the function of democracy.
Blogs are only necessary for the dispersal of commercial products via the internet.
You and all the rest are nothing more than highly opinionated infomercials with no real obligation to be loyal to anything but your bottom line.
So spare us, or just me, your inflated sense of worth.
And btw, your gay blog isn’t that responsive to the diversity with which the QUEER community is based upon.
So basically you’ve failed your own test.
I appreciate Queerty holding Obama’s feet to the fire. The ones that complain about it in every thread are black posters that don’t want anyone criticizing a black president (we all know it).
“BR”aindead is what you are…return to GayPatriot, racist asswipe.
*posted by a caucasian, as if any further proof of your stupidity was required*
(you know nothing)
@Mia Misery: Congratulations! You managed to hit just about every single stale talking point out there. Were you sent to a class for that or does spewing platitudes just come naturally? I’m not going to bother responding to the talking points because those who make a point of pushing them are never interested in discussion, only pushing propaganda.
I will, however, suggest you learn to read, and understand, something other than Obama TPMs. I never said I didn’t consider myself to be a person – I said mouthbreathers like yourself don’t. Now why don’t you run along back to the “Happy Homo Re-education Camp” and see what else Dear Leader has to say?
@br: Trash like you give GLBT Rights a bad name. Just go away.
@Orpheus_lost: And that sort of attitude is what is destroying America.
@epluribusunum: Really? I thought America was being destroyed by ignorant mouthbreathers who cast their votes more carefully for their favorite American Idol contestant than president or congressman. Nah! It’s being destroyed by mean people like myself who for some silly reason want to be treated as full fledged human beings. How fucking selfish of me. Doh!
While I agree, there are other pressing issues going on, when would it be a good time to demand that Obama start making good on his promises to us? There will always be other pressing issues. I have to multitask at my job as I’m sure most other people do. Should he not be expected to do the same?
@Orpheus_lost: It’s odd that you and are both for the same thing (equal protection and rights) and yet we are opting to take a different course of action. You choose to yell, rant, belittle, etc. and whine about how nothing is being done to your satisfaction. I choose to take a look at the situation as a whole and see how I can work within the current mechanics to make a difference knowing that my actions can and will bring the change we desire. I’m not sure how commenting on the other broken campaign promises that our administration has made is a stale platitude. I do consider myself to be a person – a person with a great deal of pride, integrity, and determination. Call me a mouthbreeder all you want, but know that’s the name calling isn’t going to bring about the change you desire.
@geoff: We can always demand the make-good on our promises. It’s being realistic in our expectations of when it will come to fruition.
With that, I’m signing off from this conversation to go do my part, however little it may be, to work towards our common goal. You can either sit here, bitching and moaning, or you can join the battle by working and/or volunteering with any number of groups out there that are making a difference.
@prissysissy: Funny how when the truth regarding Obama’s lack of action and leadership on LGBT issues is discussed here, some posters always pull the race card out. The same was true during the primary, using the race card to try to win your arguments instead of using the facts. Some of us did not buy your race baiting then and we most certainly do not buy it now. Using the race card does not prove your point without the facts to back it up.
You aren’t critical of Obama. You downright hate Obama. We get it, he hasn’t saved the world in 80 days. He should be tarred and feathered for that. I mean, it only took the last 13 years or so to get us into this mess, so Obama should have it all fixed by now. Then he should part the waters and raise the dead. Even McCain understood, during the election cycle, that Obama wasn’t going to keep the majority of the promises he has made to the American people. If you honestly thought he was then that is your own stupidity. Personally, I voted for Hilary in the primary which she won, and I never offered Obama my full support because I didn’t like the man going into the election. In a moment of weakness, I sided with my friends and family in voting for Obama simply because McCain was worse and I wasn’t about to waste my vote (vote third party).
@Orpheus_lost: Yes, because people starving and dieing because they can’t afford health care should rank under DADT in the list of priorities. You know, every time someone spews stupidity like this it just causes the American people to re-examine how they feel about gay rights in the first place. The government will only go so far as to uphold the will of the people, and the will of the people puts employment and health care way above gay rights.
@No Homophobama: I love how you still cling to this analogy even after you got schooled on it in another thread. Much like you cling to your Ivy League education when its quite obvious that GW can get an Ivy League education then pretty much anyone that shills out the money can.
@prissysissy: DO NOT lump me with the rest of the Obama haters. I’m not an Obama hater based on his stance on gay rights. I’m an Obama hater based on his stance on everything else. I can’t help the man that ran on ending the war in Iraq hasn’t made a move to do so. I can’t help the man that ran on fixing the economy admits that his plan to do so failed. For me, when he gets everything else right he can touch gay rights. Until then, I’d rather see him leave them alone.
I’m also not racist, I just don’t sit back and let blacks use the past of this nation as an excuse to play the victim card in the present. You need to go see Maddea Goes to Jail and listen very carefully to what Maddea says about the only person responsible for that person is that person themselves. I get tired of people throwing up excuses every time they get called on their bull shit so I call them out for it.
@edgyguy1426: You might not like it; hell, I know I don’t like it, but the truth is two-fold:
1) This nation is still obsessed with looks on all fronts and its much more likely they will listen to what a hunk (who just so happens to have military experience) has to say about DADT than someone who isn’t attractive.
2) This nation is still racist and homophobic. The words of a white straight man still carry much more weight in the heartland of this country than the words of any minority.
When a white straight man starts talking about DADT people are much more inclined to listen than when a gay Asian talks about it. That is completely and utterly sad, but its still 100% true.
Hi there, do you guys like dating cougars? Are you a cougar who’s looking for a cub? No matter you are looking for a NSA or serious relationship, you can get what you want here:
==- Cougarster.C-o-m -==
It’s where cougars and younger men can meet(Cougar is the slang for woman who is mature, experienced and want to date with a younger man).~~~~
@Orpheus_lost: Are you dense? Seriously, you think that the gays and lesbians have the votes to get our rights? You can’t be that stupid. Those “breeders” that you love to insult so much are responsible for every single right we do have. Insulting them isn’t doing you any justice. Also, joking about operations like Exodus International that use shock therapy in a way that was discredited in the 1960s by calling them “happy homo re-education camps” just makes you look like an absolute blight to the gay community. The fact that you think that is something even remotely able to be joked about is sick.
It is how it should be, keep it up!!!! If we were to blindly follow our political leaders like sheep we’d be….well….Republicans.
@anokie: You must be kidding. You fail to realize that the Repugs don’t follow their political leaders like sheep at all. They follow their religious leaders like sheep and then the religious leaders decide which Repug to vote for and which one not to vote for. I walked out of church the day the pastor there decided to start promoting GW and trying to sell the war in Iraq as a biblical necessity, and I haven’t been back since.
@anokie: and if we believe this crap as gospel, then you are in greater danger of your own ignorance.
@galefan2004: I do not hate Obama, in fact I like him. I just wish he would show some LEADERSHIP on LGBT issues, that is all.
TO keep track of what the Obama adminstration has and has not done in regards to campaign promises can be found at http://politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/.
“PolitiFact is a project of the St. Petersburg Times to help you find the truth in American politics. Reporters and editors from the Times fact-check statements by members of Congress, the White House, lobbyists and interest groups and rate them on our Truth-O-Meter. [They are] also tracking more than 500 of Barack Obama’s campaign promises and are rating their progress on our new Obameter.”
@galefan2004: Stupidity is not being able to handle more than one issue at a time. Are you accusing Obama of being stupid? Are you suggesting that all he can do is sit down and work (presumably with his tongue sticking out) at his desk working out a plan to stop people from “starving” because they don’t have healthcare? I think he could manage those other concerns WHILE working on civil rights for ALL Americans (another pretty big issue if you ask me) but you don’t for some reason. I’m guessing that since you had to respond to me twice in order to get your insipid point across AND you seem to believe people can only handle one task at a time, that you must be one of those mouthbreathers I’m talking about. I’m sorry your stupid but the rest of us aren’t. We can actually multitask. Even (especially) the president of the United States of America.
@Mia Misery: That’s very HRC of you. Go ahead and sit at the back of the room quietly with your hand half raised and see how far that gets you. Wait a second, we’ve already seen exactly how far its gotten us. Nowhere.
We were quiet when Clinton sold us down the river for a few ticks in his popularity rating, but many of us won’t be quiet again. We were promised at least some of our basic human rights and we should shout and scream for them as long as it takes to finally be heard. Your way didn’t work so now it’s time to try something new – standing up for ourselves.
Okay So Tell Me...
@Orpheus_lost: Since you seem privy to the inner most workings of the Obama adminstration, what is on his schedule to work on today? What files and initiatives is he working on? There is much presumption that nothing is being done because we can’t actually see movement. I don’t Mia or anyone here is saying that they want to take a half-assed approach. They have different takes. Just because you disagree with them doesn’t make their viewpoint wrong. It’s just different.
Seriously, dude, I understand why you’re upset. This has been a long time coming. But you’re also targeting and arguing with people who are on your side and working for the same result. It doesn’t mean the goal is different, just the approach. As the old song goes, united we stand and divided we fall.
@Okay So Tell Me…: When people make silly snide comments like “since you’re so privy…” I tend to respond in kind. However, I’ll spell this out nice and easy so that you can perhaps understand why I’m calling these people out.
First, when Furonda Brown comes to a GLBT blog and calls civil rights “YOUR goals”, I’m going to fucking call her out. If she doesn’t think these are HER goals then what the fuck is she doing on this site? I have no tolerance for those who think that human rights are just a pet issue.
Second, when Mia Misery (aptly named) starts by saying she “wonders” why I don’t think I’m a person then finishes her reply with snark and stale propaganda, I’m going to go off on her, too.
Third, after reading Galefan2004’s diatribes calling anyone who doesn’t suck Obama’s dick a racist a few times I stop trying to be reasonable and call him out for what he is – a moron.
And lastly, when someone replies to me with the snark you began with, my first thought is to do the same. This time, however, I’m not going to do so because you at least seemed genuinely curious as to why I went off on them. The answer is in their attitudes, not the way they choose (or not) to help the cause. There’s a place for the HRCers but there isn’t a place for people who demand we all march in lockstep with them.
@Orpheus_lost: Obama is juggling much more than one issue. I never said he can only work on one issue at a time. The problem is that there are a shit load of issues that affect this nation much more than gay rights. That doesn’t mean Obama can be slack about gay rights, but to be fair Obama has done much more for gay rights in 180 days than every president in my lifetime has done in the last 30 years.
Okay So Tell Me…
But no one said they were HRCers (which I think you are using to describe those whose go from an organizational front or perhaps, for lack of a better phrase, non-radical activist stance – not trying to being witty but not finding the right words to describe it) and I don’t think any of them demanded you follow their course of action. Each person has identified their course of action as being different to yours. I don’t think any of them said human rights, equal rights, or rights in general were a pet issue.
What I read from Furonda is that she is looking at the total picture of our current situation. Outside of equal rights, she is also concerned with our economy and health care situation. In her viewpoint, those two are of equal importance and more likely to be taken care of or addressed prior to LGBT rights. She accepts that situation and openly said that she agrees with caling out hypocrisy when it is warranted, but also tempers it with her own viewpoint that it is a process and it will take time.
Mia pointed out other things that the Obama administration reneg’d on as well as wondering why Queerty wants Obama to full address all things gay, all the time, no matter where he is or the purpose of such an occasion.
As for GaleFan well I agree with some of what he says and disagree with some as well. However, the one comment he did make that I totally agree with because it has multiple meanings is the paraphrased quote from Madea Goes to Prison. I went to IMDB hoping to get the exact quote and was lucky it was there:
“You’re in here going on about what your daddy did to you. Your daddy is out there enjoying his life while you’re in prison. You’re here because of what YOU did.”
If we as the LGBT community is going succeed in our quest for equal rights it will be because of what we ALL did – either from the activist front like you are taking, the community and organizational work that it looks like Mia is taking, or from those that can’t publicly take a stand on their own for whatever the reason but donate financially to the cause. So, as Furonda, Mia, and the host of others before have said, yes let’s hold them all accountable when they court us for our vote. It can and should be done. As Madea would say, We will be there because of what we did. And like I said, United we stand. Divided we fall.
And on a small side note, perhaps it is your own attitude and reaction to some of these posts that is fueling such attitudes on both sides. No one is innocent in this situation.
@Okay So Tell Me…: I found exactly the words I was looking for and since I can now see that you’re another one of those who are only so happy to make allowances for those denying us our human rights I can stop trying to accommodate your ignorance. I don’t have much time to waste on trying to convince people to stand up for themselves so I’ll just use you for venting purposes as well. After that, I’ll go do something actually useful while you, and your ilk, continue to come up with excuses for holding us down.
You're kidding me, right????
@orpheus_lost: Take a fucking Xanax man. You’re starting to sound sad and pathetic.
I am sick of the “more important things to do” argument. He does have important issues to take care of, but he prioritized a bill adding funding to AmeriCorps over our rights. Our rights will always be at the back of the bus until we decide to not give up our seat at the front of the bus.
And for those who question the value of critical reporting, check out Paul Krugman’s examination of being a critical source of information. While his post is about his critique of the economic policies of Obama, I think it is entirely too accurate to the accusations and criticisms of this blog.
Whether you like it or not, the president has don’t nothing progressive for gay rights. Reporting his lack of action, especially as it relates to his campaign promises, is not slanted journalism.
So why did you Hillary-bash before the election, losing women and New Yorkers and declare Obama the liberal choice? Oh, gonads!
It’s funny how quickly you all turned on Obama to the point of trashing him.
If you don’t think things are getting better, lets go back to this.
Should’ve known this would happen.
“OBAMA! OBAMA! YES WE CAN! YAAAAY! WE WON! WHEEEEE!!!!!”
“Oh, yay, it’s morning! But… wait… the streets aren’t paved with gold… Whyever not?! *blogblogblog*”
“THE COUNTRY STILL ISN’T PERFECT! WHY, GOD– Er, wait, I have to be a flawless liberal on Queerty– WHY, SPAGHETTI MONSTER, WHY?! IT’S ALL OBAMA’S FAULT!!”
January 4th – August 11th:
Whine, complain, complain, whine, blog, new sites, anti-Obama, apocalypse, whine, whine, Evil Republicans Will Take Over the World Now, whine, complain, “Queerty”.
my little douchekit, you trot out your freeperspeak
Yes, because Freepers are well-renowned for their impassioned defense of gay rights.
Jebus, when did liberals get to be so damned stupid? They’re like the flip-side of the neocon coin… the morons who assume that anyone who doesn’t support THEIR agenda is “a left-wing communist who hates America” even when the contention beggars belief.
The fact that Queerty inspires such rage in the Democratic Party — which has a MONOPOLY ON POWER in Washington right now — is a good thing.
Look at the sneering, the arrogance, the “shut the fuck up faggots, you’ll get your rights when WE decide” attitude. That’s the true face of our so-called allies. Remember it, memorize it, and keep it in mind next time they beg us for help.
Make sure that when they do, we tell them “get over yourselves, there are more important priorities, stop demanding everything your way right now.”
As Democrats move votes to ban music downloads, rename federal buildings, and bail out billionaire campaign contributors ahead of our rights, they have the temerity to insist those things are “more important.” Fine. Here’s one homo who will be encouraging all of his family and friends to stay home on election day 2010 and keep their checkbooks in their pockets.
Let’s see how well these fuckfaces do when the 8% of the vote that LGBT people represents doesn’t show up and doesn’t contribute.
Aren’t we about due for a Gay, Socialist President?
Put down your haterade and embrace your inner broke back!
The Gods offer clues about the ownershit group. Not having any blacks working in-house was a clue not only did these proprietors have a family history against blacks but they also have a personal history in a prior life!!! Also, the “romance” event was a clue they are preditory on women as well.
Once charecterized as good, now revealed as positioning.
Reverse positioning. The clients fall along the same lines.
