You see? The earth didn’t go flying out of its orbit and crash into the sun.

Many people who call themselves Christian use the Bible to back up their anti-LGBTQ+ bigotry with the word of God. These people consistently use quotes out of context that have often been grossly mistranslated over the years, and they don’t even try to understand the original context because they just went into the Bible to find something to fit their own twisted point of view. This page takes every single quote commonly used in these arguments and explains how they are a complete and total misinterpretation of the Christian faith.
10 years ago, my big brother came out to my parents. My dad was furious, he didn’t understand and he picked fights with my brother all the time.
4 years ago, I came out to my family as well. My father asked if I had ever tried dating boys, and if I was sure that I wanted to ‘become’ a lesbian.
1 week ago, my girlfriend and I were helping my dad with something, when Macklemore’s ‘Same Love’ came on the tv. He then smiled at us, and told us that the song was his life song, because the meaning behind it really spoke to him.
It took him 10 years to get there, but it felt great. My father’s acceptance and love for my brother, his boyfriend, my girlfriend and me GMH.
Same sex marriage is no danger to heterosexual marriage at all.

The First-Ever Same-Sex Marriage In Illinois Has Occurred: Congratulations Vernita Gray and Patricia Ewert
Illinois today saw its first-ever same-sex wedding after a terminally ill lesbian was granted permission to marry months before the law goes into effect.When Illinois became the 16th state to legalize gay marriage earlier this month, it was bittersweet for the couple, in their mid-60s. They feared that Vernita Gray might not live until the law would allow them to wed. They filed a lawsuit, and a federal judge allowed the two women, in their mid-60s, to get an expedited marriage license. “She went from one day being as full of energy as she could be to being completely bedridden,” Patricia Ewert said of her partner’s deterioration. As for waiting until June, Ewert said: “It’s a long time in the cancer world.” But the mood was cheerful and festive Wednesday; Ewert wore leopard print and Gray donned a dark leather jacket. They quick signed the papers after the ceremony. “It’s a great day for Vernita and Pat, and an historic day for Illinois, for a deserving and loving couple to have the chance to be married on an expedited basis,” John Knight, LGBT Project Director at the ACLU of Illinois, said in a statement. “Their love and commitment to each other has been demonstrated over time, and we’re thrilled they didn’t have to wait.”

So, as some of you probably know, in Croatia, infamous group called ‘In the Name of Family’ collected the signatures, achieving the referendum (which was Dec 1st) that would basically ban gay marriages.
In their promotional commercial, they used the song of The XX, ‘Intro’, without their permission. Ironically, The XX have two gay members, and after finding out what ITNOF fights for, decided to press charges.
As it usually is in Croatia, ITNOF declined violating the copyrights, saying: “We didn’t use the music of your band in any of our commercials. All our commercials are published on YouTube channel initiative. As your Facebook status was posted and shared only few days before the referendum, not only providing false initiative, but also manipulating Croatian voters in bringing the informed decision. We hope for the soon reaction, or we will assume you purposely harmed our reputation. We ask you to completely withdraw your claims and publish an apology.”
In the meanwhile, the commercial was deleted from the YouTube.
When I was talking to some of my favorite teachers they asked me what clubs I was doing and I told them I used to do GSA and how I stopped because my parents didn’t like it. They told me about how I should do it anyway because I should be happy and they loved me. Their support gmh.
You all know about Cathy Brennan. You all know about how she’s outed trans people to their employers, posted their identifying information and previous legal names online, and attempted to interfere with their medical treatment. Secular Woman is asking the Southern Poverty Law Center to make note of her dangerous transphobic hate site, and recognize it as the hate group that it is. Please sign and share.
please sign this. cathy brennan is a literal human garbage dump who is dangerous to trans women and has outed minors and celebrated the suicides of trans women. she is scum and she deserves to have her hateful ideology exposed and destroyed. i’d like to see her disbarred as well but that may be wishful thinking at this point.
