The Lies That Binder: Romney Insults Women’s Intelligence Once Again.

Willard’s disregard for women was on display in full force last night. He tried to bully Candy Crowley ( to be fair, Obama did to some extent as well). He completely side stepped the issue of equal pay for women. He flat out lied about his “binders of women.” He disrespected single mothers by tying them into gun control and the decline of societal values: Where the fuck did you come up with that Willard? He even did the classic Willard flop on the issue of contraception! The point is that if elected, Willard and the rest of the American Taliban will set women’s rights back at least 100 years. Women have to ask themselves: Is this what I want? Leadership that would impose their own concept of Shari’a law over me?

So Many Lies in Such Little Time!

Willard Romney kept the fact checkers at Think Progress very busy last night. Make sure you check out their article. It’s important that we all understand the lengths this “candidate” will go to in order to win votes. Willard has told so many untruths, that he needs asbestos underwear in order to keep his pants from going up in flames.

Obama Comes Out In Favor of Marriage Equality.

Did I just see rainbow smoke coming from the White House chimney? In an interview with ABC News Robin Roberts today, President Obama echoed the sentiments of Joe Biden ( without the off the wall Will & Grace comments):

OBAMA:”I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors when I think about. members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together, when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point

I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married.”

The interview is scheduled to air tonight.

I must say, this is a pretty bold statement, considering the fact that it’s an election year. Hopefully, he’ll get another 4 years to back that statement up. As I stated in a previous post, it’s going to take a hell of a lot of work to get rid of DOMA, and finally bring about marriage equality on a federal level.

I hope Obama’s actions will be louder than his words.

Pastor Sean Harris Wants To Beat The Gay Away From Our Children

Sean Harris, the Senior pastor of the Berean Baptist Church in Fayetteville, North Carolina, is getting hard core about what to do with those pesky, gender bending children these days: Corporal punishment. While giving a fire and brimstone type endorsement of proposed Amendment 1, the Amendment that would outlaw civil unions and domestic partnerships in the Tarheel state, Harris went off on a tangent about boys and girls who do not conform to patriarchal gender roles. Check out this transcript, in all of its hateful goodness:

“So your little son starts to act a little girlish when he is four years old and instead of squashing that like a cockroach and saying, ‘Man up, son, get that dress off you and get outside and dig a ditch, because that is what boys do,’ you get out the camera and you start taking pictures of Johnny acting like a female and then you upload it to YouTube and everybody laughs about it and the next thing you know, this dude, this kid is acting out childhood fantasies that should have been squashed.

Dads, the second you see your son dropping the limp wrist, you walk over there and crack that wrist. Man up. Give him a good punch. Ok? You are not going to act like that. You were made by God to be a male and you are going to be a male. And when your daughter starts acting too butch, you reign [sic] her in. And you say, ‘Oh, no, sweetheart. You can play sports. Play them to the glory of God. But sometimes you are going to act like a girl and walk like a girl and talk like a girl and smell like a girl and that means you are going to be beautiful. You are going to be attractive. You are going to dress yourself up.'”

Harris later back pedaled, and claimed that he was joking; does that transcript seem like joking to you? No? Me Neither.

This is exactly the kind of venom filled rhetoric that promotes domestic violence in the home, bullying in the school, and hate crimes in society, and for what? To force a child who may be wired a little differently, to conform to what society and religion dictates as proper? I call bullshit!

I could go on a rant about a child’s sexual orientation and how homosexuality or at the very least, the crossing of gender lines is completely natural. I could also stand on my tinfoil covered soap box, and preach about acceptance, love, and understanding of each others differences. The fact of the matter is that most rational people understand all that. The fact that Amendment 1 is likely to crash and burn is a testimony to that fact.

It’s the hateful homophobes like Sean Harris who do not understand that sexuality is naturally in a perpetual shade of grey. The decision to hate the difference in sexuality is the choice, not the difference in sexuality itself. Hopefully, the Sean Harris’s of the world will one day come to understand this.

Until that day comes, most of us will continue to use our voices and our votes to beat the pray away.

Five Men Arrested In Ohio For Trying To Blow Up A Bridge With Fake Explosives.

5 men who claim to be Anarchists were arrested late Monday afternoon, for attempting to blow up the route 82 bridge, just south of Cleveland Ohio. The explosives that they bought to blow up the bridge were fake, so I imagine they would have had a tough time with that endeavor if they had not been caught.

Dudes, you’re giving the rest of us Anarchists a bad name. Besides, isn’t it Governor Kasich’s responsibility to wreck shit in Ohio?

I Went to a Hockey Game Last Night, And a Race War Broke Out.

You have to hand it to Boston Bruin fans; they take their hockey serious. They take their racism serious as well. Check out this series of tweets posted below. This Twitter Klan rally is all because Washington Capital Joel Ward dared to knock the Bruins out of the playoffs with an overtime goal in game seven of their series.  I’m not surprised that blatant racism is alive and well in Boston; Their sports teams were some of  the last to integrate; in fact integration in general was fought every step of the way over the last three centuries before and after abolition.

You stay classy Boston.  

Happy Earth Day!

It’s *cough* 4-20, *cough* and I want to *cough* wish everyone *cough cough* a happy Earth *hack* Day, *hack*. Have a great day, and remember: always to the left my friends, always to the left.

Oh yeah, Earth Day is Sunday; If only there was another reason to celebrate today … Anybody hungry?
