Deep in the heart

No need to travel to Uganda for criminalization of homosexuality. No Sir, here in Texas we have our own homegrown homohaters.

That’s right, the good ol’ Texan GOP released their most recent policy platform. Guess what? It’s anti-gay. Big suprise, I know. But year after year somehow I just have to gawk at how unflinchingly stubborn-to-the-point-of-delusion this document is. A couple highlights:

- Gay marriage? No, let’s not streamline our message to hold ground against the inevitable sea change supported by increasing majorities of Americans. Let’s not even try to push some insulting less-than-marriage compromise. Let’s just go ahead and make issuing marriage licenses to queers or performing such a ceremony a felony. Our prisons just aren’t gay enough.

- Sexually oriented businesses? Banned. Morning After Pill? Gone. Pornography? Oh you better believe that’s banned. Hand over that internet mister!

- What ever happened to that sodomy ban we use to have? We miss it.

So you’re a virgin, huh? Prove it!

Look how super siked we are to be certifiably pure!

 

It’s cheaper than a ring, and you can even fax it straight to Jesus himself! That’s right, all virgins must hurry to Certified Virgin and register the purity of their sacred genitalia. You can even certify your friends! I’m sure they will be thrilled to hear you care so much about their nonexistant sex lives…

I must admit, though, that I expected a more stringent certification process. No inspection, no lie detector test… hell, anyone with a dollar can be a virgin these days. But hey, at least part of the proceeds (the website neglects to say how much exactly… hmm) will be going to AIDS research. Because if there’s any group that has been hit hardest by AIDS, it’s virgins.

My favorite part of this website is that it keeps track of how many “virgins” register- 180 so far! But I do wish it would provide up to date information about their wherabouts… so many cherries, so little time

But maybe you hate ribbons or red isn’t your color- there are plenty of other ways to celebrate. You could go get yourself or someone you love tested, or donate to the Global Fund to fight AIDS

“Aggravated Homosexuality”

Posted in Legal, LGBT Rights, News, Politics and Sex, You Fucked Up! with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 30, 2009 by Chase

Uganda’s parliment is currently considering a bill that would make homosexual relations punishable by a minimum of life imprisonment. Such acts are already illegal in Uganda, but this bill expands upon that homophobic foundation with vigor. A few tidbits:

“Anyone in a position of authority who is aware of a gay or lesbian individual has 24 hours to inform police or face jail time.”

“Those who engage in ‘aggravated homosexuality’ — defined as repeated homosexual relations or sexual contact with others who are HIV/AIDS infected — will face the death penalty.” Full Story

And hey, remember Rick Warren? That evangelical pastor Obama picked to speak at the inaguration in the name of bipartisanship and togetherness? Who falsely claimed that he never endorsed Prop 8? Who loves to talk about all his gay friends?… yeah, that guy.

Rick Warren is also a major player in distributing AIDS funding to Uganda. When asked about the bill that would impose a death sentence on many of the people his work is supposed to help, Rick Warren just can’t bring himself to “comment or interfere”… I wonder what all his gay friends would say about that.
