This wonderful little book was put out by John Oliver and Jill Twiss with the help of Last Week Tonight.
The episode where they unveiled the book is a gem. Check it out if you want!
EDIT: you can buy it here if you’re interested.
Some surveys have placed that figure as high as 5% for those who identify as "gay" and if you extend the studies to include Bisexual, Bi-curious and other non-straight individuals its just over 10%.
Now you are looking at about 350 million men who fancy other men.
Then think about the straight men who have anal sex with their female partners, and the straight men who enjoy prostate stimulation and all the ladies who enjoy forms of anal play...
This guy is looking at far more than 3%
And why does this guy care so much about his friends sex life if it apparently disgusts him so much. It's not like this poor gay man is having gay sex on the homophobes front porch.
Interestingly, there are actually people who claim that "boy/youth" was used as a term of endearment; similar to "baby" "my girl/boy" and "honey."
A youth was typically someone age 15-17. And at that point he was legally allowed to join the military. In our current age, that isn't legally acceptable. Morals are relevant to the times, and I think the way homophobic historians have shit on queer relationships is pretty fucked up. They just had to call it pedophilia and suddenly gay folks are all pedos. This even happened in the 70's when gay men were accused of being gay because they were molested; which led to gay men being seen as dangerous pedophiles who abused boys in washrooms.
IMO, this kind of rhetoric can be really dangerous. Were the romans pedophillic? According to our age standards, yes. According to their standards, well, no. Exploitative, maybe.
If you haven't read up on gay history, I'd recommend this book by a gay historian and linguist.
Utah is like Bosnia. Good skiing. Good basketball. People who live on the other side of those big pretty mountains think you deserve to die because you don't live your life like they do.

edit: And here is a slightly more swagged out version.
There's more to it, of course.
Heidi - I hear that the original incident took place at 5 corners - off school property - which makes it incredibly difficult to indict and punish via school channels. The kids who stood up to the bully did so with their fists on school property. I have been trying to spread the word that these incidents (the one at 5 corners) are considered hate crimes and are punishable under federal and state laws but now that students have taken justice into their own hands, it makes it much harder and more complicated to prosecute. I stand by the kids who are standing up to the bully but I do so with my words, not my fists. Need more? Let me know.
TL;DR: (what I got from the reports, not what necessarily happened) bullies engaged in verbal provocation or insults with the original victim off school grounds, nobody contacted authorities of that jurisdiction, some time later other bullies physically assaulted the original bullies (now victims too!) on school grounds, and the school is obligated to take action against the second round of bullies as the assaults happened in its jurisdiction.
People are turning it around claiming that the school turned a blind eye to perpetrators of an alleged hate crime while punishing heroes for "standing up" against the the alleged perpetrators. It's a huge mess, and it sounds like there are a LOT of guilty people.
Nah, when it fails they'll just blame it on LGBTQ folks like this guy did in 2015 when a similar event in Seattle failed.

OP posted this on a forum on a different site as well, and there he or she stated that the daughter used the ipad app Ink Pad. After reading the following article, I think it's plausible that an intelligent, artistically inclined 11 year old could have created this. Kids are raised from a very young age using complex technology that you or even I (at 27) could not have fathomed using at age 11.

Research actually indicates that "love the sinner, hate the sin" is typically not practised in real life. It's nothing but convenient rhetoric. Lip service.
Gay people are still looked down upon by fundamentalists even when celibate, and heterosexuals who fornicate are viewed more favourably than their sexually active gay counterparts according to Fulton et al (1999).
In an experiment asking religious folks to either help or hinder an individual trying to win raffle money — where this person was portrayed as either a lesbian using the prize to fund a trip to a gay pride event, a lesbian/gay man visiting grandparents (i.e. not trying to "promote" homosexuality as with the gay pride event), or an assumed heterosexual visiting grandparents — Batson et al (1999) found that the straight person was assisted more often than the gay person trying to visit grandparents, despite both groups sharing the same goals.

I bought a mini embroidery hoop on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01FV600ZM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I used the shape to get an idea of the size, and then drew the fist on a piece of linen - put that in a larger embroidery hoop that was easier to work with, and then just used different color threads for the outline and inside. Then I took it out of the big hoop, cut it to fit the small one and glued it all together.
For something so small it was more time-consuming than I thought, but also probably because I'm a beginner. I think it took about 6 hours, but it was nice because its relaxing and I can listen to podcasts while working on it :D

>So... did you have sex with more than 4 people in a major US city? Scary, uh?
Mmmm. Scary when we try to skip doing the statistics properly. *puts on math glasses.* First, lets assume that the 56% who are aware aren't going to lie to you, so the probability that a random given partner is infected is 8.36%. The probability that "at least one of your partners was infected" looks something like this as the number of partners increases. So technically, at 5 you're still way more likely not to have had an infected partner (65% vs 35%). By 8 partners, not so much (50%-50%). So "did you have sex with more than 8 MSM in a major US city" is maybe the more logical question. But ya, a still scary statistic =(
Perfect example of white, male, heterosexual privilege; although I can't say anything for your unfortunate experience with the "feminist" teacher.
Is it totally unreasonable to believe that blacks, LGBT, and women are at all abused, discriminated against, or otherwise oppressed by society norms?
There are no "heterosexual groups" in schools because heterosexuals don't need support for their sexual orientation or gender issues. People don't experience social abuse or psychological trauma because they were born straight, or born with a gender that matches their sex.
Similarly, non-white people have it way worse than white people. Socio-economically, socio-culturally, and simply socially. Society, whether consciously or unconsciously, rejects and discriminates against people who aren't white. A simple example: multiple studies have shown that having a "black" or "Muslim" sounding name reduces the likeliness of being called back for a job interview, regardless of qualifications. Does that mean the job interviewers are racist? That's a complicated question, because they probably weren't aware of their behavior. Does that mean at least corporate society is racist? Yes.
And women (although in some respects have it the best among discriminated groups) experienced a wide variety of discrimination that they're even often unaware of, partially because certain forms of discrimination are considered socially acceptable. It isn't just straightforward things like pay-gaps or a lack of women in leadership and science positions -- women are objectified, sexualized, etc.
The reason Spike TV is not called "men's TV" is because it doesn't need to be called that. There are plenty of channels already on TV that specifically cater to men. TV has almost always catered to men before women anyway. It's only a recent historical development that we have things like "Lifetime" and "WEN" and talk shows.
Here is the link to the original tweet:
I also note that "psychiatrists" don't administer "reparative" therapy; it's usually non-medical "professionals" such as counsellors and psychologists.
This video's drama was kind of hilarious, I couldn't help laughing at the whole lighting and the Sixth Sense-esque background music.
I remember reading this particular study in one of my affective psych classes. There was an even more interesting study I read (I'll try to find it now) that found that the emotional reactions to visual, homoerotic stimuli for homophobic and nonhomophobic men were different. Nonhomophobic straight men microfacially expressed mostly disgust; homophobic straight men microfacially expressed mostly anger. Gay men microfacially expressed as much disgust to heteroerotic stimuli as nonhomophobic straight men did to homoerotic stimuli.
Put simply, gay men and nonhomophobic straight men unconsciously expressed disgust (and not anger) when viewing pornography intended for the other orientation. Homophobic men, in addition to expressing less disgust to gay pornography, expressed anger instead.
Edit: Found it... I think. Either this is the one I was thinking of, or it was a very similar study. It looks like homophobia was associated with anger and fear as well.

bi F here, in a 15 year relationship w/my bi GF. the only thing that our 'bi'-ishness contributes to our relationship is that we can both gush over hot guys. sure, we experimented together with guys in the past, but in the end, the label doesn't mean shit. we are committed to each other and that is all that's important.
Camille Paglia is an often controversial thinker and to say that this comment is designed to provoke is an understatement. It is worth noting she is a self-professed lesbian. This quote appears in a chapter called Homosexuality at The Fin de Siecle in 'Sex, Art and American Culture'.
Here it is on openlibrary: https://archive.org/stream/sexartamericancu00pagl#page/24/mode/2up
Effectively, this view of gay men versus lesbians fits her view of masculinity, and the way that modern society and many other feminists (from whom she dissents) try to neuter the male, and challenge the confrontational nature they have which stems (she also says in this chapter) from the anxiety the mother causes the gay man.
If you're thinking 'Freud, much?' you're exactly right. It's a book that is deliberately perverse by some modern standards and enjoys being so. I won't say I agree with much of it but it is an entertaining and provocative read.
edit: also, OP, calling Paglia a 'Popular Feminist Writer' brings up several nuances: first, she's quite often far from popular; second she's often most deeply unpopular in many feminist circles; third to merely write Feminist suggests that her statement is at odds with feminism per se; it might be better to recognise feminism as what it is: a term for many disparate thinkers, and call Paglia a 'dissident feminist', which is how she has described herself.
Unfortunately, the environments you talked about tend to attract the more aggressive personalities in the community. I speculate this is because the consequences for being rude are almost nonexistent. If you decline their advances there are plenty of other people they can go after. In smaller groups of people, like at a gathering of friends or interest-based social clubs, someone acting poorly is more likely to be called out for their behavior and uninvited from future plans.
We're a small part of the larger population, but there are still some environments where the tone is different and you can find better-behaved people. Meetup.com often has listings for queer groups that tend to be more laid-back, for example.
Closest I can find.
There was one that appeared to change from white to a full on rainbow but it just said it was from China and I couldn't find a site to see it.
Learn to see past things like that. Gender manifests itself in different ways across different cultures. Many Amerindians had up to 7 different genders, some parts if medieval europe had only one, many non-western societies have had extra genders for trans people, and one pacific nation had no idea what pregnancy was. Gender is a social construct, if it were based in reality, it would be the same all over the world.
Chromosomes don't indicate gender - it's just that we assume they do, because most cisgender people never get theirs tested. Intersex people exist, and are very common, except people who share your mindset about them being abnormal make sure they are forced to undergo surgery at a very young age.
There is also no real difference between male and female brains. However, the brain's 'gender' varies from person to person. Everybody has their own way of expressing themselves, their own genders. Gender is real, but it is completely individual and not male/female, or even a spectrum.
I think to say he was "relegated" is a bit disingenuous. They released a cover with all five guys in the lead up to the announcement of the winner. He still got a ton of exposure and publicity and seems really grateful regardless of the final result.

It's pretty easy to make a bootable linux flash drive or DVD if you need to browse privately on new laptop.
Or if you're pretty tech savy and/or daring just install Linux directly on your machine (Debian is pretty awesome BTW).
But I don't think stories like this particularly damage the public perception of gay people. There's a pretty distinct social line between normal gay people, and "ex-gay" types, and it's the latter group that's consistently getting caught with their pants down in the presence of underage prostitutes.
When people like Haggard or Rekers or this new douchbag get caught, it doesn't damage regular gay people, it damages the organizations that claim that being gay is a problem and they have the "cure." The rest of the world sees people like NPH and Ellen and John Barrowman and George Takei on one hand, and Rekers and Haggard and Larry Craig and etc. on the other. One group are functional and respected people with families and decent lives, the others are miserable hypocrites and liars having sketchy drug-fueled bathroom sex or molesting teenagers.
Stuff like this getting public exposure is good news. Every one of these bastards needs to be exposed. Any parent in the world even thinking about sending their kid to an "ex-gay" counselor should have to see what useless, fucked up, abusive worthless shitheads they are.

Am I just making a big deal out of nothing and this is more innocent than I am realizing?
You were 15. I said a lot of crazy shit when I was 15, and I'm so damn glad my parents choose to act like I wasn't such a weird kid. Your parents may just be doing the same thing, and think it was just a phase you went through.
For all intents and purposes though, you've done the formal part of telling them you're gay. Awesome. Now that that is out of the way, just be yourself. Your gay self. Be whatever you want to be. You don't need to be over-the-top flamingly gay (unless you'd prefer that), but you can just relax about it. Bring a boyfriend home for dinner, introduce him and such, and if they act shocked, you can play the "I came out to you years ago, why is this an issue at all?" card. Act confused and surprised if they act like it's anything out of the ordinary.
Also: who says you won't have kids someday? Go look up photos of the Harris-Burtka family. Gay couples having kids is awesome. In 5-10 more years, it won't even be considered out of the ordinary.
Sort of. After some admittedly cursory Googling, I found this article that explains it more eloquently than I could (at least as a means of introduction to the issue).
Basically, the point is that misogyny is rooted in the belief that men are superior to women--or, more accurately, that masculinity is superior to femininity. Gay relationships threaten this hierarchy because they toss out the notions of gender discrepancy that define so many hetero couplings; with two men in a relationship, for instance, which one is the "subservient" "wife"?
Effeminate gay men are often the victims of high school bullying. The bullies probably don't care about their victims' sexual orientation in and of itself; rather, these victims are singled out precisely because they're femme. They inhabit masculine bodies with feminine qualities, an "incorrect" pairing in the eyes of those who believe that masculinity is inherently superior to femininity. It is this aversion to the (supposedly) "feminine" that raises the ire of these bullies; it is this femininity in the first place that makes effeminate young men such "obvious" targets for bullying at all. There's a reason coaches and gym teachers often jokingly/insultingly address students as "ladies."
I don't think it's a 1-to-1 relationship; as in, I don't think that someone who is misogynistic is necessarily homophobic, or vice versa. But to quote one study:
>Findings suggest that homophobia is related to heightened levels of masculinity and may develop in men who feel threatened by individuals whom they perceive to have feminine characteristics (e.g. women, gay men). Consequently, it is possible that such a threat-driven homophobic constitution may explain the increased likelihood of anti-gay and anti-women aggression.

>Honestly, I'm not on board with lying.
Unless you think all people should find out if they have the chromosomes they assume they have and then telling their partners, there's no need to call someone not bringing up their chromosomes a lie. They're not lying about who they are, they're simply not divulging all of their medical history. Everyone is allowed to keep things to themselves until they know they want to/need to talk about it.
This might be of interest to you.
I've been ranting for 3 months about how my favorite brand of orange juice shrunk their jug from 59 to 52 fl oz, you bet my queer ass I've got energy to be upset about this shit.

The vast majority of socialists and communists in the States aren't authoritarian. This is because leftist tradition there was established by anarcho-communists, libertarian socialists, and democratic socialists. Some examples of this include the works of Noam Chomsky, Dorothy Day, W.E.B. Dubois, Richard Wolff, and Martin Luther King Jr. (If you don't believe MLK was a socialist, please read this.) Unless you're regularly reading subreddits for tankies, the kind of revolution people are referencing is one that's democratically decided upon and accomplished through either non-violent means or minimally violent means. I'm curious of what you mean by "supporting dictators." Usually when I see this criticism of American socialists and communists it's a straw man. For example, some people think that being against supporting military intervention in Venezuela means that you must love or support the policies of Nicolás Maduro. No, we do not support Maduro. However, military intervention will only result in mass killings and likely won't positively affect the Venezuelan people. We shouldn't destroy their chance at revolution by getting involved.
Well fuck, it can cost hundreds of dollars. That seems rather absurd to me. I wonder how much money the government makes each year on legal name changes? (Unless they need to charge that much to cover the expenses of making the name changes themselves.)
Looooooooong and contentious thread about this on Metafilter.
IMO, this poignant comment makes an additional point not brought up by the article:
>Besides being merely obnoxious and annoying, bachelorette parities in gay bars are extremely problematic and troublesome because most gay people can't legally get married. Seriously, how insensitive can someone be? "Oh, no big deal. Just gettin' married over here. That's not for you, though, but thanks for letting us come and flaunt it in your face in what used to be your private sanctuary."
I’m not trans, I do have a trans daughter, but she has not started hormones yet. On the other hand, I have breastfed 4 kids. Go buy yourself nipple cream.

Y'all keep downvoting. You obviously didn't read the description. Let me put it another way, then. There is absolutely no reason toenail clippers do not have a file. Here are a few more.
Yeah, I guess we'll just have to disagree about the definition of discrimination then.
You keep showing that certain groups get preferential treatment due to prejudice. Prejudice: to pre-judge.
The people making decisions about what constitutes Irish culture should realize that their views might not be shared with the rest of the public. Especially when they'll let the police have a banner for their group, just because there are a lot of Irish police officers.
You claim that there aren't more LGBT people in Irish culture than any other culture, but I feel the same could be said about a couple of the groups you mentioned that are allowed to carry their banner. Again, please correct me if I am wrong. Would you please cite a source showing that there is a disproportionate number of Irish military members compared to other groups in the military.
If the military group is allowed to wave their banner while having nothing to do with Irish culture then the LGBT group should be able to wave their banner as well. If a group that is unrelated to Irish culture is allowed to carry a banner but a different group that is unrelated to Irish culture is not allowed to do the same then that is discrimination.

A professor friend of mine used to teach in East Texas.
It was a lit course on African American literature and the class was covering Frederick Douglass' A Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass and a girl in class actually said "Wow, I guess I never thought about slavery from the other side of things".
Yes. The other side. I guess she had only thought of slavery from the white master's point of view.
People are fucking stupid.
It's not correct, though - the etymology is more likely by way bundle of sticks --> woman who collects bundles of sticks --> old/unpleasant woman --> (effeminate) gay man.
I heard it in french but i think it's completely outdated.
The only occurence i know of it is in a stupid joke: guy goes to the hairdresser, says he wants an egg shampoo, hairdresser says "ok honey, but what do you want on your head?"
That feeling of guilt that you have? It's from making people into a single story. It's a mechanism we have to dehumanize people and make them easier to attack or disregard. Watch this TED talk and realize how much of an asshole you are, and how much you can do to not be! (because we all do it, whether we like it or not.)
It predates this generation by about, oh... 20 or 30 generations. "Gay" has a very long etymology of being used as a derogatory, or simply to imply lack of moral character. Possibly as early as 1630.
there are two main possibilities here, I can't tell you which one is true for you but I can lay out your options as I see them:
1) you're experiencing something called compulsory heterosexuality (aka comphet), which primarily affects women and associates womanhood with attraction to men and your only viable life partners being men. we're socialized to deeply value relationships with men, and that's oftentimes very hard to shake. sometimes, this manifests for lesbians when they can't deny their sexual attraction for women but still feel the need to conform to comphet, and thus project romantic feelings onto men. here is a popular doc that could help you think about this more https://www.docdroid.net/N46Ea3o/copy-of-am-i-a-lesbian-masterdoc-pdf
2) you have opposite sexual and romantic orientations. in this case, your label would most likely be "homosexual heteroromantic." most people's sexual and romantic orientations align, but that isn't the case for everyone. your brain may just have separated sex and romance, and that is totally valid!
ETA: if you want, you can PM me and I can tell you about my personal experiences with comphet. I identified as demisexual panromantic but I never once experienced sexual attraction to a guy, just what I thought was romantic attraction. turns out, i'm a demi lesbian who just felt pressured to have feelings for men.
I stopped in to mention this book as well. I generally loathe self help type books, but this one was truly an eye opener. It taught me that jealousy in itself isn't an emotion, but rather a label that we apply to the combination of emotions we experience when we're feeling threatened or insecure in a relationship. And, more importantly, once these emotions are identified, they can be managed and overcome with honesty and communication.
The book is now in a second edition. Even the reviews on Amazon for the book make good reading:

https://twitter.com/#!/Pam_Spaulding/status/74789881049653248 there was a study done recently showing that while most of the world is moving toward acceptance of LGBT, countries in or around former Soviet Union are going backwards against that trend or stay the same, in best case scenario.

No its true. I was born in the late 1970's and my older brother would use it to say someone was bi. Another reference would be becks song loser. I'll add a link in a bit I'm on my phone.

Yet here you are doing just that by speaking against 'Islamic immigrants' and saying 'they hate us' - no, it's homophobic Muslims that hate us, and that's not an excuse to discriminate against Muslims.
It's telling you specifically talk about Muslims, not homophobes of any other faith.
Don't try pulling 'Islam isn't a race', particularly not when talking about immigrants.
I don't know where you live but have you tried seeing if there is a local gay community center?

By the way, the etymology presented in that video apparently isn't correct. It doesn't invalidate the point of the video of course, but I thought people might want to know.
Hm, I see your point with pussy. I don't do it with bitch though, but perhaps that's just because I've never used it that way.
http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=bitch as you can see, it's a term I try best to avoid. Horribly insulting.
If you look up bastard though (http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=bastard) it appears to only have been applicable to men for many hundred of years, due to women not being able to either own land or to succeed someone.
Very interesting actually! It's also interesting to contemplate how casually we use these words today, without really thinking about their meaning.
> "yep there is 0 percent controversy this is the truth" than you are out of luck. There are endless studies positing that men are on average a few IQ points ahead of women.

You seem to strongly believe that a certain amount of people are trans, no more, no less. Statistics are not 100% accurate and you shouldn‘t build your whole opinion around them ( https://www.datapine.com/blog/misleading-statistics-and-data/ ).
Maybe some people misinterpreted being trans, but that is their realisation to have, their journey to discover themselves. It‘s not on you to fakeclaim anyone because of their age.
there are some articles about this online, if you want to learn more
I don't know if I can explain why I find commercials that have gay themes so effective, but, if this bank were in the US, I would give them my business without question, even if they were the douchiest bank around.
Budweiser did it a while ago and now, if the occasion calls for libations, its all I buy. http://www.snopes.com/politics/sexuality/budlight.asp
I don't even like the way it tastes.
Also very good.
And this set has some really cute ones.
play around with this and you can see that when filing jointly as a married couple does get you a benefit.
example 1: married, $80,000 and $10,000 wages = ~$9000 in taxes owed
example 2: separate: $10,000 gets ~$500 back, $80,000 owes ~$13,500
a saving of about $4000 a year just for being married.
playing around with it more myself it seems that even at a 250k & 10k disparity, it is still better to be married tax wise.
I shave often to keep a clean look, my advice is to use a double edge shaving razor, personally I think it gives the closest shave. And remember to shave in every direction to get everything. Heres a link to a razor similar to what I use, you can also pick one up at a walmart supercenter
Most likely that he noticed you were in here deliberately hoping for a ban. https://archive.is/E93wy we don't ban straight people, we ban people who break the rules and in that respect it doesn't matter what gender or sexuality they are.
Your post doesn't break said rules.
However given the context of your post, you probably meant straight instead of cis , cis just means not trans, you can have cis gay men, lesbian gay women. And no we don't hate them on a whole, just the ones who hate us. Might dislike the ones who find it funny to poke at us however, and get fed up of people who continue to not show acceptance
135 Million Ad-block Plus Downloads While I clearly can't speak for all of Reddit, the more tech-savvy you are the more likely you are to have Adblock and Reddit is definitely on the savvier end of the spectrum when it comes to net users so it isn't a stretch to think that a fair amount of them are running it.
How many of them configure it to allow sites they want to support is unknown however.
Though DOMA is horrible -- and it is easy to imagine this happening, this is not actually true -- as the update in the original post from Slog has shown and Christina's friends at Amigas Latinas have posted on their Facebook wall.
I think we are better off letting friends and family here mourn rather than trying to make something out of what seems to be nothing.
There is a lot to celebrate in the life of Christina Santiago and that's what should be the focus -- at least for a few days.
Yes - here are a couple of examples of nonbinary people who are openly blogging about their medical transitions. Essentially, the treatments are more or less the same as for binary people, although some choose to go on lower doses of hormones than are usually given to binary trans people (and, at least in the UK, it can be more difficult to access transition services as a nonbinary person due to gatekeeping and discrimination).
I didn't downvote, I simply want to show to two things regarding this:
>I do believe that homosexual sex is not natural
Please see the following:
List of animals displaying homosexual behavior
The Partisans: Natural Love
There is no foundation whatsoever to suggest that homosexuality is "not natural."
Definitively? No. Not yet.
Likelihood? Yes. Probable. Most violence against women — cis or trans — happens behind closed doors. That two men were seen leaving the scene of the crime seems to suggest that she was — at a minimum — the victim of a domestic attack, if not (more likely) a victim of having a transsexual body. You should see some of the stuff that gets posted on Twitter's @transphobes: men — especially men of colour of late — show little quibble with or remorse to the idea of "killing a tranny".
Edward Elgar, the composer of the music we all graduated to, "Pomp and Circumstance" is rumored to have had an affair with August Jaeger, for whom he wrote a gorgeous piece of music.
Are we going to ban Elgar, too? Will they have NO music at their graduation?
What about mace In the shape of a gun? Wouldnt it do well to make attackers think you have a gun without actually having one, so they back off
Plenty of low cost options on amazon, came across this one doing some xmas shopping and thought about this post. https://www.amazon.com/FIBO-STEEL-Stainless-Steel-Grooved/dp/B01M7ZWII8/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1479838617&sr=8-5
This is probably a targeted ad.
I recommend that you switch to an app like Sync for reddit (my personal favourite) or Boost for reddit; and not just because of the intrusive, maliciously disguised, and irritating ads, but also because these two apps both have so many more features, including many useful customization options, than the awful official Reddit app, and also look and feel so much better.
Make your parents watch this film, Out in the Silence. Not only is it a great documentary that shows how awesome it is to have supportive parents, but the kid is also a good example of how not all gay people fit one stereotype.
Really? Christianity gets rid of the prohibition of pork later on.
Keep this uninformed crap to /r/atheism.
I'm an atheist and even I know this.
This has already been a law in the United States. Link
Intersex is a sexual characteristic, not necessarily a gender. So intersex has to do with the body, not the mind. It has to do with the body containing both male and female physical characteristics. This can happen in many different ways. This TED talk covers it in a very succinct and user-friendly way.
Intersex people are often confused with trans people because there is often a lot of overlap. It is not uncommon from trans people to later find out or realize that they were born intersex. It is also quite common for intersex people who have been raised one gender to want to feel more comfortable identifying as the opposite gender, and so they transition. So you see, a person can be just trans, just intersex, or both.
Because people who are born intersex are often given sex-assignment surgery in infancy, they ofen grow up not knowing that they are intersex.
Gave you ever seen the genderbread person? It is fairly simplified, but illustrates the relationships between sex, gender, orientation, and expression fairly clearly and would probably help clarify your original question.
That is a good rule of thumb, however, in this case there is an assumed "This is" before "Me and my girlfriend." We often drop those words as a matter of shorthand, but you should treat everything that follows as if they are there. Since "This is" would cause the following pronoun to assume the nominative case, it would be correct to say "This is my girlfriend and I," or simply, "This is I." It's the same as answering the phone, "This is he/she."
Colloquially, however, the use of "me" in this case is acceptable in modern spoken grammar since we have developed an informal version of spoken English. My mom is an English teacher, so I've heard this stuff my whole life.
Hm, that's true. I guess you could take the product up to the third brother and use that for all the following brothers. Doing that gets about 72%, though even still I'm sure there are plenty of other problems with my approach and there's too much uncertainty to take it seriously.
Psychology possibly, I'd also look into social sciences and gender studies. Possibly also history or literature - there's probably someone specifically studying LGBT+ themes in literature and they'd be helpful regarding the storyline. You can also have a look through the departments at this link (found by googling "lgbt academia") and following links to universities and researchers.
Honestly, you're doing a thesis. If you aren't prepared to do basic research (finding someone for an informative interview is preliminary research that wouldn't even really be part of the thesis if you were studying something like social sciences) the thesis itself is going to be pretty tough. It would probably only take an hour or so to find a few different people, then you just have to contact them.
Y'know what's great is that TED also picked this up for their website, which brings the "It Gets Better" campaign to a whole other audience.
Edit to include link to TED, it's a great site, if you've never seen it, go watch some kickass talks
2. A false belief or opinion:
Ah, so when an atheist says that the existence of a deity is a false belief (which they tend to do since, obviously, they don't believe in deities), that that is "loud and obnoxious" or otherwise something to get offended by?
So, what about when theists say that there is a god or gods? Do you call them equally loud and obnoxious for stating their beliefs?
Though DOMA is horrible -- and it is easy to imagine this happening, this is not actually true -- as the update in the post has shown.
EDITED: Forgot where I actually learned this wasn't true from: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1294411904&sk=wall
I used to think I was bisexual, but I recently discovered I'm actually lesbian. Something that really helped clear things up was the Am I A Lesbian Master Doc. I realized that looking at a man and recognizing him as attractive was very different from being attracted to him. Your experience sounds pretty similar to mine, but ultimately only you can determine what to identify as.
Questioning is perfectly normal, and it's okay not to know. Maybe you're bi, maybe you aren't -- what's important is that you love and accept yourself.
See my reply (it's above, at the moment) -- I was in your shoes about 10 years ago. Things, and people, change.
To be honest, deep down, I've always preferred the "ideal" of monogamy, but thinking realistically, I am not quite convinced it will always work -- even though in my current relationship we are monogamous. Guys are dogs. And when the relationship has two of them, double trouble. Allowing for occasional lapses and not making them the end of the world seems to make more sense than throwing away a good thing because somebody screwed up, again pardon the pun.
Even being the idealist monogamist - I agree with what others are saying here -- I can overlook the occasional snacking on the side, as long as we both know we'll be back home for dinner. Having a best friend, and lover, and partner, who are all the same person, is more important to me than imposing rules on each other and causing drama for no reason. Sex is not love, and if it is, that's not a "relationship" you're in. You're just living with a serial f*ckbuddy.
For those who don't read norwegian, here is a machinetranslation: http://translate.google.com/translate?js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&sl=no&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.aftenbladet.no%2Flivssyn%2F--Det-er-denne-dagen-som-blir-vr-bryllupsdag-2831799.html
That article was published in the "UK" section, and when it was linked from the front page of BBC News the link text was in fact "First gay weddings in Britain".
Like I said, if this were /r/lgbtusa or whatever, no problem. But it's not. And I'm not complaining about the predominance of American stuff in this subreddit, just the attitude that the rest of the world might as well not exist.
I'd say most homophobia in the black community comes from religious influence. I'm guessing that a majority of the @Homophobes tweeters belong to an Evangelical Baptist sect of Christianity.
Even if she's voted out, she's always got Romania as a backup outlet for her homophobia.
If Ermold's capable of doing this, I really hope he runs and wins. I'd gladly chip in for his campaign fund.
