    ARRRGH! “The events at Stonewall led to riots and demonstrations that opened the dialogue and fight for the basic human rights of the homosexual community.” More well-intentioned but UNFORGIVABLY ignorant perpetuation of the myth that there was no gay rights movement before Stonewall. That would be news to Harry Hay, Phyllis Lyon, Del Martin, Frank Kameny, Barbara Gittings, Troy Perry, et al. And, a rainbow button splattered with Stonewall Riots blood? Sorry, Jugend, the rainbow wasn’t associated with the Movement until NINE YEARS LATER.

    If knowledge is power, what is ignorance?

    Bedwell, your reading comprehension skills are off. Again.

    It’s not a lie to state that it was the Stonewall riots that GALVANIZED the movement. It’s not that they were the first, because they were not the first, but the riots at the Stonewall Inn where “the final straw” , if you will.

    You are misreading when you read that and think it says “nothing happened before stonewall” – much happened before stonewall, of course. But it WAS the events at the stonewall inn that ended up being the galvanizing force that launched (inter)national movement(s).
    so chillax.

    re: Yahoo buying Tumblr – be prepared to lose your Tumblr website if you offer adult content. Yahoo is determined to shut down those sites to convert Tumblr to family friendly only.

  4. Ray says

    I do not understand why Jake Gyllenhaal continues to be of interest to the gay community.

    After all, he’s the one who said if he’d known Brokeback was going to be so widely viewed he wouldn’t have made it.

    I am sick of having to look up to folks who are dragged or stumble into our history.

    Stand up be proud or F’OFF!

    As an atheist I’m sure I’m biased, but I don’t understand how gays can go to seek a god in a Christian Church, “rainbow-colored communion bread” or not. Leviticus is clearly homophobic, I don’t care how John Boswell used to interpret the passage. Ancient Greece became fairly gay-friendly starting in the 6th century BCE, but Jews in Judea at the turn of the century were unequivically not. Jesus would have probably characterized gay sex as unclean and sinful, against nature, if he were asked. Paul has some unkind things to say in the New Testament. Jerusalem was not Athens. Is there not some other God to worship, seriously, that is gay-friendlier than the 3-in-1 Father, Son & ghost?

    No, will, there is only the one and only trio of three…lol Biblical humor…tough crowd. Paul also specifically asks Jesus what is the most important Commandment of the Ten. Jesus answered, to love God my Father with all your heart and soul….Paul then asked Jesus what is the second-most important Commandment. Jesus answered, “To love all of God’s children as you love my Father”. In other words, in Jesus’ own words, it is LAW that we ALL love one another. Nothing terribly complicated in that message, but, oh, how very hard it is to be a true Christian and LIVE those words. My friend, you may consider yourself atheist due to the hypocrisy which abounds among “Christians”. The sad fact is, these “Christians” will not and refuse to see the err of their ways until it is far too late. Jesus does NOT say it is o.k. to hate someone, Jesus NEVER says it is o.k. to kill/injure ANYONE under ANY circumstances. Live by these words and you will be just find…both in the here and now, and in the future. Above all, do not allow hatred or hypocrisy from letting you develop your own relationship with God. The effort will be worth it…trust me.

    Citation please. I have never read Jake G. saying anything like that at all. He was nominated for an Oscar for that role. I don’t believe for one second he would regret it. That sounds made up to me.

    The only thing I’ve heard him say about playing it was that it was a bad time in his life personally and that made it more difficult. And both he and Heath seemed to struggle working with Ang Lee. But he never indicated the content of that movie made him regret it.
