The Gay Bro Code: Duties of Being a Wingman

Pin It

The Gay Bro Code:
1) Loyalty to your bro at all times above all. If you promise something you must keep the promise.
2) Anytime it is requested that you wingman, you are obligated and required. However, you can only be
asked to do this once a week, unless you owe favors.
3) When playing the role of a wingman you cannot fail. The wingman job is very important. (more on the
all important wingman duties and obligations HERE)
4) It is your duty to prevent ugly or embarrassing tricks. The exception being a totally sober bro
explaining why he is doing it. Then you are off the hook for any responsibility.
5) Keep the family out of it- no hook ups with a bro’s relatives (close straight friends included unless
cleared well in advance). Read more »

Google Search Suggests “Gay Should Die”

Pin It

We were searching up queries in Google and noticed that they have one that needs to be removed. When you do a search for “gay should” it will come up with different pre-fetched results but one of them is “Gay should die”. suggestions. You would think that “gay should be allowed to marry” or something similar would come up first but you see the “die” and a “gay should not be allowed to marry” along with “gay should not be allowed to adopt children”.

One reader said that “Gay Should Die” came up first in his Google box. This is upsetting and we need to contact Big G to have this removed. Do you think that Google is promoting intolerance here? When you do a Bing Search for the same thing you do not get the “die” result.

New Mexico County Issuing Same-Sex Marriage Licenses

Pin It

While New Mexico’s gay marriage laws remain up in the air, one county official is not waiting.  Meet Dona Ana County Clerk Lynn Ellins who issued a statement Wednesday affirming that his office is issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.  News reports have noted earlier this month that New Mexico is the only state without laws on the books for either gay marriage or civil unions.

This decision comes days after New Mexico’s state Supreme Court declined to decide on the gay marriage issue, sending requests for legality back to the lower courts. He cited concerns of a delay that “could be many months or years” before being resolved.

“I am an attorney, and I have read the AG’s opinion, and I find it to be sound,” Ellins said in a statement. “After careful review of New Mexico’s laws it is clear that the state’s marriage statutes are gender neutral and do not expressly prohibit Doña Ana County from issuing marriage licenses to same-gender couples. Any further denial of marriage licenses to these couples violates the United States and New Mexico Constitution and the New Mexico Human Rights Act. Doña Ana County is upholding New Mexico law by issuing these marriage licenses, and I see no reason to make committed couples in Doña Ana County wait another minute to marry.”

According to Freedom To Marry, New Mexico’s state’s laws have been stagnant since 2004, when a clerk made a similar move as Ellins to issue licenses. But the state’s attorney general at the time stopped that process, and movement has stalled since.  So maybe we will see New Mexico as the next beautiful state to marry.  Santa Fe here we come!

Infamous Ex-Gay Religious group Exodus Shuts Down and Apologizes

Pin It

Exodus International, after 37 years of screwing with Gay and Lesbian people’s heads and trying to make them straight IS CLOSING and is going to work with churches to be more accepting. The group also apologized for all of the damage they have done and the lives they have ruined. I had to look over the post several times before I realized it was real and not some type of Onion story.

Don’t be too sure of this excitement though. We must still give money to Lambda Legal, GLAAD, and the HRC to help combat these religious rights that try and take away our rights. The Exodus website reads that they are shutting down but at the same time say “Local affiliated ministries, which have always been autonomous, will continue, but not under the name or umbrella of Exodus.”

There are still those deliverance ministries that Exodus developed like the Restored Network that are in OKC this week who have come for a Pentecostal revival to to cast demons out of as many OKC LGBT as they can. Exodus is like spiritual nazism and physical nazism there is no excuse. Floyd, when I was coming out while in Seminary I was told it would be better to commit suicide then to be Gay. I know of a group where the Evangelical Deliverance had as high as a 50% suicide rate after a year. Evergreen ministries in Utah left Exodus and uses electro shock therapy at BYU to help homosexual Mormons.

– I saw this posted on Facebook earlier and it is a scary thought but this is a great sign of the change that is happening to see this major hate group go under.

This could turn out to be one of the best pride months ever if things keep going our way. What we found out just now has shocked us and made us feel a sense of pride like no other. Especially since I was told to goto a “Chance to Change” place that my father sent me to although it ended up turning badly against him because he thought it was a place to change me.

Danish scientists say they’re “months” away from HIV Cure

Pin It

Could scientists be close to a cure for a disease that has killed more than 25 million people since 1981? We realize now it is not a death sentence like it was before but a cure is what we ultimately seek. According to the Daily Telegraph, researchers at Denmark’s Aarhus University Hospital believe they are “within months” of a breakthrough that could lead to an affordable cure for the millions of people living with the disease.

There are even some investments to possibly get in on a cure payout. Sangamo BioSciences, Inc. (SGMO: NASDAQ) is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company is engaged in the research, development and commercialization of zinc finger deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA)-binding proteins (ZFPs), a naturally occurring class of proteins. Its lead ZFP Therapeutic, SB-728-T, a ZFN-modified autologous T-cell product for the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), is the first therapeutic application of its ZFN technology and is being evaluated in an ongoing Phase 11 and two Phase I/II clinical trials.

But more about the Danish Scientists technique which involves flushing the HIV from “reservoirs” in human DNA to the surface of cells. With the help of a separate vaccine, the human body would then be able to kill the virus with its own immune system. “I am almost certain that we will be successful in releasing the reservoirs of HIV,” said Aarhus University research team member Dr Ole Søgaard, who remained optimistic but cautious about the potential results.

Open Letter to Church inspired by “Same Love”

Pin It

This open letter to the Church is going viral for a good reason. We basically pay taxes and help churches out but yet they come back and discriminate against us. Yes, Church’s get to go exempt so they get a free ride as far as I am concerned. The letter seems to be based on a Macklemore concert and their song “Same Love”, which I first heard riding on an airplane the other day and was brought to tears. It really is an amazing song and we love this piece below and hope that churches respond in a positive way.

I got to go to the Macklemore concert on Friday night. If you want to hear about how that went, ask me, seriously, I want to talk about it until I die. The whole thing was great; but the best part was when Macklemore sang “Same Love.” Augustana’s gym was filled to the ceiling with 5,000 people, mostly aged 18-25, and decked out in thrift store gear (American flag bro-tanks, neon Nikes, MC Hammer pants. My Cowboy boyfriend wore Cowboy boots…not ironically….). The arena was brimming with excitement and adrenaline during every song, but when he started to play “Same Love,” the place about collapsed. Why? While the song is popular everywhere, no one, maybe not even Macklemore, feels its true tension like we do in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. If you’re not familiar, here’s the video:
