Something tells me the EU is going to have something to say about that. Poland can choose: gays, or the Third World.
So Dan, after what Hillary and Obama said last week does that mean you will not support either one of them if they get the nomination?
it will be interesting to see the criteria for being "gay on site". feather boas, matching shoes and belts, vinyl pants and leather vests, combat boots and cropped hair on girls. Virtually all of the gay people i know look no different than the straight people i know...
That video clip is comic genius. I almost peed my pants laughing so hard.
Who wants to get dressed up in leather drag and go make out at IHOP with me?
I will monkey!! Hell, let's have a gay orgy at IHOP!!!! And then carry it over to Club Lagoon on Saturday night.
As a matter of fact everyone who is gay and lesbian should take over Club Lagoon this weekend!!!! Let's make it Seattle's newest GAY NIGHT CLUB!!!!
Poland's new conservative leadership is insane. The benefit of the EU is that they will surely slap huge sanctions on Poland if they go through with this. A similar thing is happening with abortion - the EU will punish Poland for not providing abortions to women even in medical emergencies.
Oh man, have you ever met on of those "ex-gays" in person? My grandfather is a church counselor in an evangelical congregation in Everett, and his greatest counseling "success" was convincing this poor guy that he was secretly straight, but just needed to embrace "what God intended." I met the guy a couple times, and all I could think was, "what a masochist" - trying so hard to deny himself.
hope those fuckers in fabulous polska enjoy those bodies-of-christs and stale holy water. subsidized goods from the godless sodomites in west euro won't last forever.
Dan, here's a submission for They Will Know We Are Christian.
I wouldn't be surprised if we start seeing similar anti-gay activities here in the US, especially around the 2008 election, ex. banning adoption, teachers, domestic partnerships, medical benefits, etc.
The far right will continue to get crazier and crazier until they lose elections. The ex-gay movement has never been about helping gay people - it's about telling other straight people that somehow sexuality is multiple choice. Extermination is their ultimate goal; it's the Evangelical Christians' Final Solution.
definitely: thank god for the EU. This is not going to fly at all - the EU actually pushed a national requirement for Anti-discrimination laws back in 1999. This law isn't going anywhere.
That video made my day so much better. :-)
I think its funny in a scary kind of way. Poland spends millions of dollars on American teachers every year so it can learn English and "take its place" in the EU, when most of the EU isn't this homophobic, and WILL cause problems for Poland in the long run.
As has already been said repeatedly, this is all rhetoric.
Poland has suffered huge disappointments after the fall of communism and paired with a Catholic backlash that has resulted in the current nationalistic government run by the facistoid twins.
They ran for office on, for one thing, a demand for the return of the death penalty. Something which is a complete no-go for EU members. Hell, even Turkey has completely abandoned it (including lastly in martial law) in the hope to qualify for membership (and to digress, I find the current xenophobia of France and Poland in that respect appalling - it's despicable how Turkey is made to jump through hoops - that's really not the way to reduce Islamic extremism).
That said, the *rhetoric* is disgusting on its own and betrays an unpleasant ideology. But these measures cannot be put into effect, at least.
This is is not going to make me any friends. However, this the USA and we have nukes. Can we just smoke the poles?
Any one that has been awake the last few years knows that our "being" is good enough for the RR to want to wipe us out. What is NOT being discussed, what is NOT being planned is what WE as gay folk are gunna do about it. Dont' give me crap about voting for candidate A or candidate B, we vote for them, they shit on us. All you "activits" who like to type endlessly and talk endlessly now need to ACT. Any bright ideas for what to do to fight back instead of whinning and typing on blogs?
