Guys.

Guys.

This might be the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen as a pro-marriage equality ad.

WATCH THIS. It’s an Australian ad.

FOUR FOR YOU AUSTRALIA!
YOU GO AUSTRALIA!

Marvel Comics has 14 gay/bisexual characters DC has four

pink-mama:

DC comics are all minors character the biggest being Batwoman.  DC announced that one of their Iconic characters would be gay, that character being… Earth 2 Allan Scott Green Lantern. Raise your hand if you have heard of him?

When you say Iconic DC people think of Superman, Batman, Flash, Wonder Woman. How about one of the main stream Green Lantern. John Steward, Hal Jordon, even Guy Gardener. 

In the words of Leonard from Big Bang to Sheldon “Way to step outside the box and push firmly against it” 

Also like to note that neither companies have any transgender characters. 

Oh, the ramblings of the uninformed.

First, your numbers are wrong. If this was simply a numbers game then you’ve already shown yourself to be an idiot.

Second, it’s Green Lantern. It’s the original Green Lantern. A character that was created 72 years ago. To those who don’t know the comics they’ll hear a Green Lantern is gay. To those who do know the comics (clearly not yourself) then they’ll know that the original Green Lantern is gay. [If, in fact, that is the character that is going to be revealed as gay.]

If you’re going to contribute to the conversation, then at least start with some accurate information. Know your topic and stop making an ass of yourself.

This is Richard Hayne, President and CEO of Urban Outfitters. He’s also a supporter of Rick Santorum and donated over $13,000 to him. He’s against gay marriage and abortion.His company pulled a pro-gay shirt back in 08, they also blatantly ripped off an Etsy designers work, featured a t-shirt for women that said “eat less” and most recently had a card with a “tranny” slur on in.Why do you shop at this store? I imagine because you weren’t aware of these facts. Now you are, so stop shopping there.

He also owns Anthropologie and Free People.

It’s a time-honored tradition at Navy homecomings – one lucky sailor  is chosen to be first off the ship for the long-awaited kiss with a  loved one. Today, for the first time, the happily reunited couple was gay.
The dock landing ship Oak Hill has been gone for nearly three months, training with military allies in Central America.
As the homecoming drew near, the crew and ship’s family readiness  group sold $1 raffle tickets for the first kiss. Petty Officer 2nd Class  Marissa Gaeta bought 50 - which is actually fewer than many people buy,  she said, so she was surprised Monday to find out she’d won.
Her girlfriend of two years, Petty Officer 3rd Class Citlalic Snell, was waiting when she crossed the brow.
They kissed. The crowd cheered. And with that, another vestige of the policy that forced gays to serve in secrecy vanished.

House GOP triples budget to fight same-sex marriage

lgbtlaughs:

shortformblog:

  • $1.5 million in funding to prevent gays from marrying source

» Don’t forget, this is taxpayer money, allocated by House Republicans to their legal counsel to defend DOMA in court. It was originally capped at $500,000, but that limit has since been tripled.

I’m reblogging this because this is an utter joke. A cruel, sick, twisted joke.

[ Image Description: An arrangement of twenty-five, small cartoon screencaps, each depicting different couples with one male and one female partner engaged in a kiss. All depicted kisses are from different television shows and movies aimed toward a young audience, except the last four, which are all from Avatar: The Last Airbender. The shows and movies from which the screencaps were taken are: Disney’s Snow White (depicting Snow White and her prince), Disney’s Aladdin (depicting Aladdin and Jasmine), Disney’s Sleeping Beauty (depicting Aurora and Prince Philip), Disney’s Beauty and the Beast (depicting Belle and the Beast in human form), Disney’s Tarzan (depicting Tarzan and Jane), Disney’s Hunchback of Notre Dame (depicting Phoebus and Esmerelda), Disney’s The Little Mermaid (depicting Ariel and Prince Eric), Disney’s The Lion King (depicting Nala and Simba), Disney’s Hercules (depicting Hercules and Megara), Disney’s Lady and the Tramp (depicting Lady and the Tramp), Disney’s Pocahontas (depicting Pocahontas and John Smith), Disney’s Mulan II (depicting Mulan and Shang), Sailor Moon (depicting Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask), Hey Arnold (depicting Arnold and Helga), The Amazing Spider-Man (depicting Black Cat and Spider-Man), Dragonball Z (depicting Android #18 and Krillin), Avatar: The Last Airbender (depicting Sokka kissing Suki, Aang kissing Katara, Sokka kissing Princess Yue, and Zuko kissing Mai in four separate screencaps) ]
This post is for anyone who has ever said that sexuality/romance “doesn’t belong in a children’s cartoon”.  I want you to look long and hard at this collection of images.  They are all actual screencaps of cartoons aimed at children.  Now that you have processed these images, I want you to realise one thing: these are all expressions of sexuality and romance.  And you’re quite content for your children to take in these images and ideas.  Here’s a little spoiler for you: these kisses are more sexual than two people simply maybe having feelings for each other.  Yet, if they happen to be two girls or two boys, they’re automatically more dirty and inappropriate than highly intimate open-mouthed kisses.
Protip: before you complain that children are too young for sexuality, remember that sexuality is everywhere in children’s entertainment.  Then do us all a favour and shut the fuck up.

I was in Bojangles, which is a fast food restaurant in the South, last night. I overheard a table over from me having this conversation. Keep in mind, everybody was well over 60 and had Southern accents.

Elder Lady: Ya know, Marie doesn’t exactly look like a boy, but Joyce says that’s what she is now. Well, I guess I shouldn’t call her she, I shouldn’t even call her Marie. She *chuckle* I mean he goes by Matt now.

Elder Gentleman: That ain’t right. Joyce needs to teach that girl that that ain’t right. Don’t they go to church?

Elder Lady: Roy, you listen to me. That child is finally happy. Do you remember the last time you saw h-him really happy? Isn’t that’s all that’s important? Joyce raised her a Christian and that’s all that counts. Every child is beautiful in God’s eyes. It’s time you accepted that.

Elder Gentleman: Well damn.

Elder Lady: Now you better be nice to that child, I can’t imagine how hard it must be.

After about 20 seconds silence,

Elder Gentleman: I guess I could take her fishin’ sometime if she’s gonna insist on being a boy now.

Elder Lady: That’s him, Roy.

Then the woman smacked him on the side of the head and the whole table laughed. My town is small and full of “bible-thumpers.” Hearing this gave me hope that people are finally starting to be more accepting here, and that hopefully people won’t have to hide anymore.

I love badass old people. Also, happy to see examples that people from the South are not 100% idiots, because I know there are lots of really awesome folks down there.

This made me smile.
