So my sister, me, and (most of) the rest of the GSAO went to the skating rink for some group bonding time. Several minutes into the skating, these two little kids came over to the table (I was out skating when this happened) and called the group f***ots… So two of the guys kissed each other and said “yeah, we are f****ots.”
The little kids then called the managers of the skating rink and asked them “hey, could you make these f***ots stop making out in front of us?”
One of the managers responded with “No, I can’t.”
“People want homophobia to change in black America the way that homophobia changed in white America, but it’s not going to happen that way. It’s gonna happen in a way that is befitting to black culture. Everyone always knew Little Richard was gay, but because of his talent, people overlooked it. Dennis Rodman is heterosexual but was a public cross-dresser, but because he was such a good NBA player, people overlooked it. In black culture, talent has always been this big deal. In black culture, there is an ideology of support, of taking care of your people and your community. Changing homophobia is going to come from public figures and pastors telling their community to love their children, that lesbians and gays are your brothers and sisters, that you can be gay and that doesn’t make you less of a strong black man. Discrimination, segregation, and racism make people feel that they have to be strong. And people relate strength to masculinity. And people relate homosexuality to being the opposite of masculinity. When femininity is seen as a source of power in black culture, homophobia will no longer exist.”—Mykki Blanco in this interview with Bullet
Casual homophobia is assuming someone is gay/lesbian based on how they dress/speak
If you don’t remember Sophie M Herold, she is a German girl, who is extremely homophobic and transphobic. She has found out LGBTQ persons names, addresses, personal info etc. And set up her own database.
Her intentions with this are harmful.
She is sending out this information, your information, your best friends information, someone you love and care about. She’s sending it to hate groups, malicious people, people with bad intentions.
And if you think I’m blowing this out of proportion, people have been kicked out of homes, disowned by families and even MURDERED. Yes, murdered. Innocent people who have done nothing but love.
She has had numerous blogs and each have been removed. Tumblr staff are aware of her, and as far as I’m aware she currently doesn’t have a blog, but this does not mean she isn’t still on peoples tumblrs, asking via anon where you live, what your name is.
An email I received today. She’s sending out information of same sex couples with children so the children can be kidnapped. She entitled it “Time to strike back”. If that doesn’t suggest harmful intentions I don’t know what does.
Please be extremely careful what you post on tumblr, on twitter, facebook, anywhere. Do NOT give out your full name or your address, or even the town in which you live. Look out for one another, and don’t answer any suspicious anons. Especially if they use your name in quotation marks.
Sophie M Herold is still out there, she always will be, so please spead this message and warn people. She’s attacking in silence. We don’t need more people dying because of her actions.
This is absolutely horrific.

Bret Easton Ellis, writer of ”American Psycho,” claims actor Matt Bomer can’t be cast as a straight character because he’s openly gay. Not sure if Ellis knows what ‘acting’ is.
I can never tell whether Bret Easton Ellis is consciously performing the role of “jerkish novelist” or whether he’s just a jerk.
Actually, there’s really no difference, come to think of it.
So if Matt was closeted (like some portion of Hollywood’s leading men undoubtedly are, and Matt is apparently “straight” enough for reporters to still be asking him if he’s got a girlfriend) he’d be perfect for the role? Okay, Ellis.
