Man Attacks 14 Year Old Girl For Carrying Rainbow Flag

A 14 year old girl on rollerblades was getting ready to march in the Maple Leaf Parade with the LGBT Resource Center’s float, she was carrying a rainbow/American flag hybrid. But it got ugly when Mark Schneider ran up, grabbed the flag, pushed her and screamed, “Go to a country where they will hang people like you.”

What the fuck? Seriously, WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?!

Humanity FAIL.

I am sick and tired of this insinuation that same-sex marriage is somehow criminal in the same breath as talking about child molesters, murders, etc. Guess what? More straight people molest children than gay people, homosexuality isn’t a crime, and under the Constitution, no one is different than you. I usually don’t respond like that above, but this went from marveling at the magic of tumblr to Debbie Downer’s prejudice and suggestion that equality somehow involves letting murders and rapists do what they want. 
Cheers!

Oh, for fuck’s sake, I knew this would happen. They started reporting this last night. So I guess only straight white male judges can rule on issues regarding women, the GLBTQ community, and minorities. Because, y’know, they don’t have any biases whatsoever.
BREAKING NEWS: When you lose, sometimes it’s your fault for bring a shitty case to court. Keep in mind, the REPUBLICAN governor of California declined to defend this, and so did the attorney general. Gee, I wonder why?
chaddm:

Ah, Fox News… accusing Judge Vaughan Walker of being both a homosexual man and a “known liberal.”
Bear in mind that Judge Walker was nominated by President Reagan and eventually confirmed under the first President Bush. You know, those two pro-gay, super liberals that they were…
It’s sad that a major news outlet would allow news that goes against their agenda to be subject to such ridiculous unfounded ad hominem attacks and name-calling. Keep it classy, Fox.

Black Power's Gonna Get You Sucka: Right-Wing Paranoia and the Rhetoric of Modern Racism

This is pure brilliance. It’s a long read, and clicking on the embedded links will just make you madder. But it’s amazing.

"Prominent white conservatives are angry about racism. Forget all that talk about a post-racial society. They know better than to believe in such a thing, and they’re hopping mad.

What is it that woke them up finally, after all these years of denial, during which they insisted that racism was a thing of the past?

Was it the research indicating that job applicants with white sounding names have a 50 percent better chance of being called back for an interview than their counterparts with black-sounding names, even when all qualifications are the same?

No.

Was it the study that found white job applicants with criminal records have a better chance of being called back for an interview than black applicants without one, even when all the qualifications are the same?

No.”
