Homophobes WAY more likely to Love the Cock: Study Finds

Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 10.05.32 PM

If you hate gays, chances are you’re gay too!  That’s what a landmark study published in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology discovered all the way back in 1996. The authors wrote: “Homophobia is apparently associated with homosexual arousal that the homophobic individual is either unaware of or denies.”

The study evaluated a group of heterosexually identified males. The men were questioned as to their level of anxiety regarding homosexuals. The men were then shown three different types of pornography: straight, lesbian, and gay. During their viewing a device was attached to their penises to measure arousal.

The shocking result was that men who exhibited homophobic tendencies were guaranteed to get a red-hot boner from the gay porno.

This study also sheds light on the otherwise seemingly bizarre phenomena of anti-gay politicians turning out to be queer as folk.

Homophobes are also more likely to die earlier than the tolerant.

But if homophobia has been linked to a shorter lifespan, and given the staggering list of homosexual behavior observed within the animal kingdom, the question remains: If homophobia is so bad then why on earth did God make human homosexuality (along with many forms of fashion, fat-eating, tattooing, and many other common things) a sin?  … Read the rest

Exposing Australia’s Ex-Gay Conversion “Therapy” — Survivors Speak Out

Over at news.com.au, Rohan Smith interviews three victims of ex-gay therapy treatments. Here’s Anthony Venn-Brown’s story:

ANTHONY Venn-Brown was a desperate man in 1971.

Then just 20 years old, he arrived on the doorstep of the Assemblies of God church in Auckland convinced he had found his salvation.

For the early part of his life, Venn-Brown fought off temptation. But he needed help. Unfortunately, he sought it in the misguided preachings of two men who convinced him he was harbouring the devil.

“I’d heard frightening stories about people screaming, contorting and frothing at the mouth when devils were cast out of them but whatever it took to get rid of these terrible thoughts I wanted to do it,” he said.

Venn-Brown told news.com.au he “genuinely believed the exorcism would work”.

“I wanted so desperately to feel normal that I was willing to try anything.”

For two hours, the pastors stood over him and shouted at the devil to show itself.

I am sure many Disinfonauts and other aware netizens are clued into the distracting and sometimes rigged nature of the games around the world. This avid fan of American Football wrote the book  Against Football, explaining why he’s turned his back on the sport.

Life-long NFL football fan Steve Almond recently wrote a book called Against Football in which he details why he is no longer watching the game he loves. Ian Crouch talked with Almond for the New Yorker.

Any other year, Steve Almond would have seen the play. But, after forty years of fandom, he’s quit the N.F.L. In his new book, “Against Football,” Almond is plain about what he considers the various moral hazards of the game: “I happen to believe that our allegiance to football legitimizes and even fosters within us a tolerance for violence, greed, racism, and homophobia.”

This part resonated most with me:

Even a casual N.F.L.

American Family Association Terrified By USPS Harvey Milk Stamp

In a statement released last week (“A drag queen was behind USPS Harvey Milk stamp“) the American Family Association instructed its membership to refuse delivery of mail stamped with the new commemorative Harvey Milk stamp (I had no idea that there even was one. Thanks, AFA!), and if given them at the post office to ask for a United States flag stamp instead.

Choosing a stamp is your choice, and you can of course use it for anything, like sending a certified letter . You know: the kind that requires a signature. For only a couple of dollars more, you can receive an email that the letter was received and a copy of the individual’s signature – all for less than $6. (If you need to use that form, start over again with your own zip code.)

If you want to send a letter to the American Family Association expressing your feelings regarding this and other actions taken on behalf of you and your family, you may do so at the following address.… Read the rest

Dismissed Minnesota Vikings Player Chris Kluwe Says Coach Wants To Nuke All The Gays Until the Glow

Recently dismissed Minnesota Vikings player and outspoken advocate for marriage equality Chris Kluwe has issued a rather long and damning accusation directed at Vikings coach Mike Priefer. Kluwe (you may recall a previous op ed from him assuring a homophobic politician that gay men won’t turn him into a “lustful cockmonster”) says that Priefer stated that “the gays” should be taken to an island and nuked until they glow*, and that Kluwe’s advocacy is what led to his dismissal.

Via Gawker:

Near the end of November, several teammates and I were walking into a specialist meeting with Coach Priefer. We were laughing over one of the recent articles I had written supporting same-sex marriage rights, and one of my teammates made a joking remark about me leading the Pride parade. As we sat down in our chairs, Mike Priefer, in one of the meanest voices I can ever recall hearing, said: “We should round up all the gays, send them to an island, and then nuke it until it glows.” The room grew intensely quiet, and none of the players said a word for the rest of the meeting.

Chick-Fil-A Sock-Puppet Theater

Here’s a short primer on how to tank your national image in the eyes of the only people left who like you.

  1. Be bigoted and vocal about how it’s just good Christian values.
  2. Lose customers and valuable promotional partnerships because of it.
  3. Hire PR firm for damage control to create fake “Christian” teenagers on Facebook to lie and verbally abuse detractors.
    Chick-Fil-A: sock-puppet busted
  4. That should about do it.

Thanks for your attention.
