Show others that we don't associate or wish to be a part of that particular extent of political movement?
I don't understand how anything is supposed to get done at all if we continue to allow the Christians to define us as extremists, as activists, how is anything supposed to happen? Why aren't we, why isn't Soulforce, making a point to stand against this violence, be it lesbian or not, why aren't we distancing ourselves from it?
I don't see how any of you find this funny... please someone, explain the humor to me.
Read the excerpt from the Southern Poverty Law Center report and follow the link to read the whole thing. We are not outraged at the existence of "Killer Dyke Gangs" because THEY DO NOT EXIST!! Everything about that O'Brian report and everything about that pseudo-expert Wheeler IS A LIE. We can't get serious about reforming a problem in our community because this problem IS A LIE made up by Fox "news" to villify us in the eyes of their gullible conservative audience. Wheeler is the director of Sandwich security for the American Institute of Baking for Crying out loud!!! And fox news is treating him like he was chief of the f____ing police in DC or something.
We laugh because:
a. It is SO INCREDIBLY RIDICULOUS and
b. Laughing is better than crying.
Everything that the Religious right does to our community is based on LIES and the eagerness of a certain demographic to BELIEVE THE LIES no matter how stupid they are.
