I love this editorial from the Washington Post for the following description of NOM: "The loathsome and duplicitous National Organization for Marriage". Awesome!
That comment in a time when news organizations continue to interview NOM and other hate group people like American Family Association as legitimate sources.
Grinning Cat, that quote of yours kicks MAJOR-LEAGUE ASS. The final two statements:Pushed out? No. I walked out.speak to the thought Jeff gave this matter, the conclusion he came to and the choice he made, one that many of us in our own way share with him.Smokin' stuff, GC, thanks for posting it!
When she revealed that she was in fact a T, the audience seemed to love her even more. But, to my knowledge, T's have always had more acceptance in Asian culture. If this had happened in the 80s in America, she would have met a chorus of boos.
She has a wonderful voice, both as a F and as a M, and seems to have a wonderful, likable personality. And it's a catchy little song, too.
As I am a transwoman I really enjoyed her talents. The best part of this is that we "Ts" as a group are slowly catching up with the rest of the LGB+T community. When I was her age in the 40s & 50s you were either in the closet or dead. I may have enough time left to see us fully intregated as I could make another 20 years. A lot are making it to 100 these days and we are making progress. Even us Atheists are gaining ground. It has been years since people ran in terror if they found you to be one of those scary heathens that were "Non Believers"
Dallas, lovely video.
She's really a beautiful person, and has a beautiful voice. I'm a fan:-)
Well, it looks like the show launched a career for her, I suppose.
The young man in that video is just adorable.
I liked that video a lot, Dallas. Thanks for posting. We are all beautifully wonderful in our diversity.
What a shame! -- Dallas
Before Jason Collins, there was Justin Fashanu
Fifteen years before Jason Collins took his ground breaking steps out of the closet and into American sports history, a 37-year-old man named Justin Fashanu walked into a London storage unit and took his own life. Fashanu, an English professional soccer player, was the Collins of his time, having revealed his homosexuality midway through a career that flirted with stardom and ended in tragedy. But Fashanu's time wasn't ready for him. Neither England, nor the 1990s, nor soccer, were prepared to embrace an openly gay athlete, setting into motion a spiral of self-destruction that ended in a premature death. While Collins has rightly been lauded for his bravery after his revelation earlier this week, Fashanu's sexuality made him a target in a sport that still does a shockingly poor job at tolerance. His own coaches spat homophobic epithets in his direction. His teammates made crude and insulting attempts at humor. Opposition fans concocted vile songs and chants. Even his own brother spoke out against him. [continue]
