I've known few gay men and Lesbians who liked football and basketball, whatever that proves. I am not one of them. I spent the day en route from St. Louis to Portland. While in St. Louis I did attend the Orchid Show at the Missouri Botanical Garden, which I suppose some guys would consider pretty gay. I didn't ask the other people there if they were gay...

Christpher thanks for posting the video, important stuff. Considering what people in some countries go through, it's wrong of the US not to accept people's word for it.

Whenever hetero males attempt to discuss football in front of me, I always cure their desires by telling them how much I like the tight ends and wide receivers.  Then I explain that the best part of the game is the locker room, with all that towel snapping and ass grabbing.  By this time, they are usually on another subject.  Of course, there is no hope for them tonight.  I got through the day by going to a pet bird show and adding some more canaries and finches to my collection.

My sister in law in Mexico asked me if I planned on watching the Superbowl and if I were there with my brother and a couple they know, would I chat with the women on the veranda instead of watching the game.  My response:

I probably would slip out to the umbrella as professional team sports seem to me nothing but sublimated Alpha male fantasies of combat and conquest, things that have always bored me to death.  Heterosexual males love sports because they fill up the gaps in conversations that might otherwise "degenerate" into unimaginable intimacies, which few masculine males allow themselves.  They can cheer for their teams and talk about what a great pass quarterback X just threw, and it helps avoid discussions of things like how poorly one holds one's water at night.  There is always a problem with what the banned psychiatrist Wilhelm Reich called "character armor," a reference to the macho front that men throw up to guard them against just such predicaments as intimacy with other males.

We all have a stake in the outcome in Egypt.  The hypocrisy of the United States in propping up this regime for thirty years and complaining about widespread violations of human rights!  A few years ago, a group of about forty or fifty (could be more) gay men were taking a private voyage down the Nile on a party barge, available to anyone with the money; they got busted by the Egyptian police the minute they disembarked.  They were systematically tortured and hounded into public confessions in a society that maintains Shariah beliefs even as it attempts to modernize along secular Islamic lines similar to those of Turkey.  If the Qu'ran condemns homosexuals, they will not be suffered to live.  (Sound familiar?  It's in Leviticus and the mad rantings of that master misognyist and homophobic cocksucker, Saul-Paul of Tarsus.)  Islamic homophobia is no better or worse than Judeo-Crustian homophobia, though as any atheist knows, Jebus Crust never said a bad thing about homos.  In fact, a guy with a following of twelve men and only one woman (at most) would subscribe to the adage that people who live in glass tents shouldn't throw camel chips.  Seems to me, at any time in history twelve guys going around with one prophet dude just might be having sex together.

Charone, go ahead and plug!  We need supportive communities of inclusion and reason everywhere.

Hey folks

I hope you don't mind this plug.  I have created a discussion group on Facebook called Q & A of Atlanta.  Queer & Atheist of Atlanta is a group of non-believers who have some connection to Atlanta.  The reason I started this group is because of the tremendous amount of religiosity that exist in Georgia.  If you are atheist and queer and open about it you will find it very difficult to make social connections in this town.  Q & A of Atlanta is about building a queer atheist community in Atlanta.  Send me an Email if you are interested in joining. qandaofatlanta@groups.facebook.com

Peace & Reason

Christopher, I'm so angry.  The antigay environment was also stoked by American christian homophobes - as in the welcome videos above, led by Scott Lively.  THat's not to say that Mr. Lively encouraged anyone to commit this murder, or that the perpetrators ever heard of him, but he and his group agitated for and supported the growth of the antigay environment in Uganda. 

 

Uganda and protestant christians are not alone - Burundi, Nuns torture trans teenager.  Not a new story but I just read of it.  It's difficult to read the story due to the translation, however.  Im not sure what to make of it.

One of the prominent gay Ugandans that the Ugandan rag known as the Rolling Stone put a piece out about was bludgeoned to death in his home.
