He wants Holland to adopt local laws that would protect people from getting fired or kicked out of their homes because they are gay, bisexual or transgender. Federal and Michigan laws protect residents from discrimination in housing and employment, but not based on a person's sexuality or gender identity, and Holland's city council rejected modifying the local anti-discrimination law with those specifications. Freeman, married and a father of two, has appeared before the council several times since, urging the council to revisit that decision."

  1. The gay community needs to get over its sensitivity

  2. I've been saying it over and over lately; The Huffington Post has become very conservative and EXTREMELY anti-gay, particularly in the comment sections. Read the comments on any gay story at Huffington Post these days and you'll swear that you've somehow landed on Free Republic or World Net Daily.

  3. The Male Model Fix link is wrong. Please correct this!

  4. If you think Huffpo is conservative, than you're crazy. i always read the comments and they're overwhelmingly pro-gay. They're more gay friendly than most comments i read on actual gay-oriented sites.

  5. It looks like your Noah Ballou link is wrong.

  6. As a female...I will make an uncomfortable generalization about the prevailing culture of "girl world" that makes me unhappy but is true nevertheless. Oh I may rail against the social conditioning of my sex, but...the reality is...

    We can be catty.

    We can (and are) catty because we are judged by our appearance. We can have a heart of gold but if that heart isn't wrapped in a flat tummy, perky boobage, and a face like a supermodel we're just "the best friend".

    Any male to female transexual will have to deal with being judged by their looks like every other female. Best get used to it now.

    Unless they are VERY young when receiving treatments and have feminine features they will be ostracized by men as dating partners and many women will be catty just's our way.

    If you can be talked about because your outfit makes you look're going to be talked about if your body makes you look like a man.

    All the equality movements in the world won't change the fact that human beings prefer attractive people. The male (straight male) brain is hardwired to like certain features (medical science has proven this) and it is compounded by marketing and other socializations.

    I'm not saying this is right--I certainly try very hard to do my own thing and not spend 1-2 hours going through my closet before going out or a gazillion dollars on hair product...and yet...I do.

  7. It's about as appropriate as asking which male actor has the more "faggy look". Offensive term that's occasionally used or reappropriated by the group it's intended to describe, used to propose a question that is inherently stupid and offensive in and of itself.

    But it is always amazing how sensitive some gay men are about terminology and the importance of words until it's words they use about a group they care less about.
