[Facebook status reads:
'Today while out, a gay couple exchanged a kiss in a parking lot to a local store.
Not too far from them, and loud enough to draw attention, a man shouted “That’s f*cking disgusting!” Then turns to a mother with her small child and says “Aren’t you upset your son has to see these two f*gs acting like that?”
Before the mother can say anything, the child points at the man and shouts: “It’s not disgusting! It’s love!”
In response the man stood speechless, and the mother said: “He is right. It is love, and who are you to spread hate?”
I’m extremely proud to say that this 4-year-old boy is MY son.
That my child, without any prompting at all, knew what love was and what a hateful act also is.
And that he responded in defense of love.
He rendered that man speechless, and brought tears to my eyes.
Had to share this… I hope no one minds and it brings a smile to people’s faces.’]
[Love counts more than gender]
by Branden Summers.-
About fifteen minutes ago, my sister asked me, “If I tell you something, promise you won’t tell Mom or Dad or anyone.”
I agreed, and she told me that she and her best friend have been secretly dating for seven months.
They’re both female.
K and D, your LGMH.
I don’t know if any of you realise how groundbreaking this is — the monarch is NOT SUPPOSED TO DO THIS. They are supposed to be impartial and not publicly speak out about their personal political views, although this rule has been broken and bent in the past. But this is a REALLY HUGE DEAL.
Good luck to everyone out in Sochi.
This is Channel 4’s personal statement in response to Sochi’s LGBT attitude. The ad will be running, along with their adorned-with-Pride-colours logo - even the massive logo at headquarters.
"Good luck gays on gay mountain"
In the UK, Channel 4 is the network that’s showing The Winter Paralympics. Imagine NBC doing this - that’s how awesome this is.
