As Rupaul Drag Race Season 4′s self-appointed “mean girl” Willem Belli lunched with Detox and Vicky Vox at Chick-Fil-A, the ladies discussed the christian-owned restaurant’s recent sponsorship of 2 antigay “marriage conferences.”
Willem was only mildly annoyed by the news until he realized the food gave him the runs (and we’re not talking about his stockings), prompting him to exact revenge with… this entertaining musical endorsement.
According to Willem “If drag queens endorse Christian-right owned Chick-fil-A, is it still an endorsement? NOPE. The worst endorsement for a Christian chicken eatery is three drag queens.” I think Willem may have a point. If Chick-Fil-A is always chock full ‘o’ drag queens, I bet the usual Christian clientele may just start to fill their hateful pieholes at KFC. Lets stage a WIG-IN!
“It is time to close this chapter in our history,” Obama said in a statement after a test vote cleared the way for final action. “It is time to recognize that sacrifice, valor and integrity are no more defined by sexual orientation than they are by race or gender, religion or creed.”
After 17 years, the military policy known as Don’t Ask Don’t Tell or DADT has been repealed by December 18 2010′s historic senate cloture vote of 65/31, allowing President Obama to make good on his 2008 campaign promise to end DADT. Changes won’t be immediate. After the president and his top military advisers “certify that lifting the ban won’t hurt troops’ fighting ability,” he’ll put his John Hancock on it. Then there will be at least a 60 day waiting period before Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is officially history and Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual service members will be able to fully step out of their closets.
Rachel Maddow reminds those of us excited by the news that not only was this a HUGE victory for President Obama but also it was a difficult one and it didn’t come without a price.
and an oddly “fair and balanced” report from FOX news….
It is about damn time. Congratulations to all those members of the military service who will finally be able to begin their journey towards true freedom.
This news was heartening to many, including former Lt. Dan Choi who has become a spokesman for the movement to end DADT. He checked himself into a Veterans Administration facility to receive professional mental health care following the December 9th 57-40 Senate defeat of a 2011 defense authorization bill that includes a provision repealing the 1993 exclusion of openly homosexual men and women from military service.
Choi was discharged from the hospital on Thursday and said today’s historic success sent a “jolt of good American energy. It is a good time and I’m re-energized for this.”
This approach only works when you are preaching to the choir. A belligerent, obscenity-laden attitude isn’t going going to change anyone’s mind, just enforce the belief gays are a bunch of foul-mouthed perverts who would raise angry cursing children if allowed.
It’s too bad FCKH8 had to go so far with the FUCK part of their message. Sure it’s catchy and memorable, but it’s a baseball bat not an olive branch. This is beating someone about the head and shoulders with your beliefs. Its badgering and it isn’t effective. It just pisses people off.
This only works as an ad to sell the shirts (which really ARE cute in black), and maybe that was actually the point… showing us that funds (what % I don’t know) from sales of these irreverent cute T-Shirts go to a worthy cause.
They mean well, and if you’re already a believer in Marriage Equality, then the videos are almost endearing despite the chip on their shoulder. But I can’t get over the idea of inbred moronic asshats like the Phelps clan and other similarly-gifted bigots being incensed and encouraged by this campaign. The oiled up naked guys don’t help either.
It may attract some of the younger hipper crowd that want to buck authority and be extreme, but that generation is already more likely to approve of Marriage Equality anyhow, so this really isn’t necessary. A more respectful campaign could still be cool enough to reach young people while NOT alienating those whose minds need to be changed. And their Celebrity supporter is Kelly? REALLY?
What do YOU think? Effective? Ineffective? 1 step forward? 2 steps back?
I was a bit surprised to see Karl Rove’s name show up as a new Twitter follower the other day. Wonder if he’s following me for the same reason I followed him? – keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Also amusing (and peculiar) are the other Twitter accounts we both follow… discharged gay soldier -Dan Choi, gay pornstar Rob Romani and Willow’s lesbian love – Amber Benson.
Which is more likely, he has …a disgruntled staffer with a subtle but wicked sense of humor? …a secret penchant for gay porn and comics? …a detailed dossier on me?
As of Legion of Super-Heroes #6, Longtime LEGION scribe Paul Levitz is bringing back traditional of allowing the readers to elect the Legion’s leader. The members of the Legion all vote, but it is actually your vote that counts, and not, say, Brainiac 5’s (sorry, Briany). So visit LegionElection.com and cast YOUR vote for the new Legion leader.
Legion elections energize and empower readers in that they can directly participate in the direction of the series, and who knows, it might pique the interest of folks not yet reading the series. Where else can readers have direct interaction like this?
Dressed relatively conventionally yet still looking fabulous in her dark suit and horn-rimmed glasses, the always outspoken Lady Gaga showed her support for the LGBT cause by addressing an excited crowd at a Portland, Maine rally for repeal of ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.’
Lady Gaga’s choice of Maine was significant because the rally was designed to put pressure on the state’s two moderate Republican senators, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe, to support a vote on Tuesday on the bill allowing the repeal of DADT, which is currently being blocked by Senate Republicans using a procedural tactic known as the filibuster. If one of the two Maine senators support allowing a vote, and break the filibuster, then the Senate could join the House of Representatives in passing the legislation, as early as this week.
Exhibiting a political savvy that may rival the spectacular theatricality that has made her a star, singing sensation Lady Gaga delivered a speech she wrote with the intent of influencing critical Republican votes in Congress. 2 hours before the rally, Lady Gaga told her 6.4 million Twitter followers of her intent to speak and then took the stage at a Monday evening rally calling for an end to the DADT policy disallowing gays and lesbians from serving openly in the US military.
I’m so glad we have the likes of Keith Olberman, Jon Stewart and Dan Savage to comment on stories like Bush Jr’s recently self-outed campaign manager, Ken Mehlman’s admission of the obvious fact that the GoP is the party of the scapegoat.
August 26, Mehlman revealed that he is gay. Prior to this revelation, rumors about Mehlman’s sexual orientation had circulated since at least 2004. In May 2006, Mehlman denied that he was gay, telling the New York Daily News, “I’m not gay, but those stories did a number on my dating life for six months.”
On November 8, 2006, comedian Bill Maher made an appearance on CNN‘s Larry King Live, during which he referred to Mehlman as a closeted gay man. The incident became controversial because CNN edited out Maher’s comments in later taped editions and removed the reference to Mehlman’s sexual orientation from the transcript of the show. The day after Maher’s comments, Mehlman announced he would step down as chairman of the RNC.
So NOW he comes out in The Atlantic and wants to become “an advocate for gay marriage” in his private life. I’m sorry. Way too little and too damn late.
From one election to the next the party’s leadership has shown a distinct pattern of using sentiment against a party or group to rally supporters to their side. Under Ken Melhman’s watchful eye they did just that by waving the gay marriage issue like a red flag to the easily baitable bull that is the religious right. While they’ve backed off the gays a bit, it’s only to put pressure on illegal immigrants and Muslims. It is such a shame that the American populace is so easily led by such an obvious and heinous tactic.
I think the gay GoPers who tow the evil line are worse than the assholes who stand in front preaching to the bigots fanning the flames. These are educated people who should know better but somehow manage to delude themselves into believing that it’s OK to engender persecution and hatred of their own peers in order to win an election. Either they do so by so convincing themselves (and therefore their co-workers and constituents) that they aren’t one of us (as Melman seems to have done) or they simply have no soul and care not that they work against the cause. Whichever excuse he leans towards, Ken Mehlman should be ashamed of himself.
I like it. Its sweet and totally speaks to the part of me that grew up on Schoolhouse Rock. Music is a very effective tool for communicating a message to the masses. And not only is this video political, adorable and catchy, but it is also true. Why else would the state be in such a hurry to keep Perry vs. Schwarzenegger (the landmark civil rights/marriage equality case against Proposition 8 currently underway) from being forever immortalized on YouTube? They don’t want the world AND history to see California as ignorant. But its too late in the information age to keep that sort of thing from happening.
Happy New Year’s Day to everyone out there!!! I hope you all had a great evening last night! This year Jib Jab has turned Obama and Biden into puppets to sing a duet of regret. After a grueling year of Wikileaks and oil spills, join our Oval Officers in kicking off 2011 by kicking 2010 out the door!
The latest douchebag to end up in JoeCartoon‘s blender is the sixth and current President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (link is to his blog THOSE OF YOU BRAVE ENOUGH TO CYBER BULLY A DANGEROUS LUNATIC WITH A COUTRY”S ASSETS AT HIS DISPOSAL, PLEASE FEEL FREE!).
In case you have been under a rock… He told a Columbia University audience “We don’t have homosexuals like in your country. We don’t have that in our country. We don’t have this phenomenon; I don’t know who’s told you we have it.” The only reason he thinks that is because he has them wiped out if they show their face.
