Irish drag artist Panti Bliss, aka Rory O’Neill, has shared on Facebook how a heroic shop assistant in Dublin dealt with one customer hurling anti-gay slurs at another, reports The Journal.

 

Panti came to worldwide attention earlier this year when she made an impassioned speech at the Abbey Theatre against homophobia. That speech came about after O’Neill called out a number of well known Irish figures who he said are homophobes because of their anti-gay activism. The activists sued state broadcaster RTE and were awarded damages.

There’s been an inevitable backlash against the story of the shop assistant leaping to the defense of Rory’s friend but Panti has softened their coughs as only she can.

Wrote Bliss on Facebook:

So the story of my friend Colm who was called a 'faggot' in Spar yesterday has gone viral overnight, and while the vast majority of the responses have been lovely and positive, poor Colm has also had to deal with lots of abuse online - from people calling him a liar, to the people who claim it's his own fault for not dressing how they think he should. Because apparently the problem isn't that some asshole called him a faggot while he was minding his own business in his local shop, but that some faggots refuse to dress how assholes in shops think they should.
Dolly give me strength!

Heroic #SparGuy as yet remains unidentified.

Houston Restaurant Apologized to Customer Who Complained About Their 'Faggot' Waiter: VIDEO

Receipt

A former waiter at Kelley's Country Cookin', a Houston restaurant, is speaking out about a disgusting incident that occurred during a shift he was working last week, ABC13 reports:

Blake Butler, 19, was a server at Kelley's Country Cookin' in Meadows Place up until last Wednesday when he says a fellow server got a note on the top of the receipt from two customers. It was about him and read "Don't want to listen to a (faggot) through my whole meal."

"I just thought it was disgusting," said Butler. Butler says it was offensive but just as offensive was how the manager reacted. 

"Instead of having my back and be like, you know, 'That's my employee. I can't have you talking about my employees like that.' She was like, 'Oh. It's OK. I'm sorry,'" Butler said.

Butler also says that he came out to his parents because he didn't want them to find out after hearing about it on the news.

Rapper Azealia Banks: 'A Faggot is Anybody That Hates Women' - VIDEO

Banks

In a new interview in The Guardian, rapper and self-described icon Azealia Banks is asked if she regrets any of her explosive Twitter feuds, particularly the one she had with Perez Hilton.

From the profile:

“I don’t regret doing it, but I’ll never do it again, because I don’t care enough about the person to have the battle again and defend my use of the word ‘faggot’,” she says. I thought her defence might be that she was using the word much as American comedian Louis CK employs it, as a general insult for a weak person or ineffectual behaviour. In fact, to Banks, “faggot” is a term of abuse levelled specifically at misogynists, some of whom, in her experience, have been gay.

“A lot of gay men are way more misogynistic than straight men,” she says. “The shit they say about women behind their backs, it’s like: ‘Wow, oh my God!’ You can be a straight faggot, you can be a gay faggot. A faggot is anybody that hates women. It’s like, y’all sing along to my words when I’m saying ‘ni--a’ and ‘c--t’, but as soon as I call this one white man a faggot the whole world exploded. Listen, I didn’t say all gay men are faggots; I said Perez Hilton is a faggot, so don’t try and bring the rest of the gays down with your faggotry.”

Banks released a new album, Broke With Expensive Taste, this week along with a slick new Marc Klasfeld-directed video for the single "Chasing Time".

ACLU Sues San Bernardino Sheriff's Department Over Anti-LGBT Discrimination

San bernadinoLGBT inmates at the West Valley Detention Center, both current and former, have filed suit against the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department for discrimination and abuse faced behind bars. The prison system often separates LGBT inmates for their own safety, but that discrepancy should not reinforce and legitimize the difficulties they have faced according to the suit, from name calling to longer jail sentences. 

The Los Angeles Times reports:

The suit cites several cases in which gay inmates were allegedly denied equal access to drug rehabilitation and educational programs. Gay inmates were allowed less time out of their cells and were unable to participate in work programs that would reduce their sentences, the suit claims.

"In the United States, we punish people because of the crime they commit, not because of who they are," said Melissa Goodman, an ACLU attorney who filed the suit along with the law firm Kaye, McLane, Bednarski & Litt, LLP.

The 'Althernative Lifestyle Tank' where LGBT inmates are kept became a personal hell for the fifteen people filing suit alongside the ACLU, including Peter Guzman who claims he was kept in his cell for up to 23 hours each day.  

Guzman, who spent seven months in West Valley awaiting trial in a fraudulent check-writing case, said that from his cellblock he could see that straight inmates were often out of their cells. Sometimes, violent offenders who were straight served food to the gay inmates as part of a work program that gay inmates were denied access to, Guzman said...

 
The San Bernardino County Sheriff's office, along with deputies and sheriff John McMahon, are being named in the suit, and for good reason: they either enforced or committed the in-jail discriminatory behavior.

Mckibben[Former Indiana sheriff deputy and West Valley inmate Dan] McKibben (pictured far right with partner Sean), 51, said he once saw deputies beating a gay inmate. Deputies, he said, regularly used gay slurs when addressing inmates.

McKibben, who spent about two months in the gay cellblock, said he was appalled at the behavior of those who'd taken an oath to uphold the law.

"When you're sworn, you're sworn. And I took that oath," he said. "These guys, every other minute, were violating that."


UK Psychic Sally Morgan Fires Husband, Son-In-Law After Homophobic Rant At Skeptic: VIDEO

JohnMorgan

Mark Tilbrook, a skeptic handing out leaflets aimed at debunking UK-famous psychic Sally Morgan (below right) was harangued several months ago by the talent's husband, John (above), and son-in-law/manager, Daren Wiltshear. They did not stop at general un-pleasantries, though, instead attacking Tilbrook's sexual orientation and adding a few savory notes of homophobia for good measure. The two men claimed to know a great deal about the skeptic's personal life, calling him a "poof" and asking, "One of your boyfriends been up your arse?" 

SallyMorgan1Pink News reports:

Mr Tillbrook says: “I decided earlier this year to leaflet outside various psychic stage shows, encouraging members of the audience to ask themselves questions about psychic ability.

“My first three visits were to shows by Sally Morgan, and on each occasion her husband John Morgan approached me. I found him to be threatening and abusive.

“After being threatened during my first encounter with John Morgan, I felt it necessary to have a camera with me when leafleting, to record events and provide evidence of the threats I faced.”

Tilbrook has reportedly received legal threats from Morgan. Those will likely stop, however, as Sally Morgan fired her husband and son-in-law following the release of Tilbrook's video. Pink News reported that the two men are no longer involved in her psychic act and are barred from attending her shows.

Sally Morgan said: “I have come from a family background that has always been very accepting, many of my friends are gay and I have always felt happy that I am often referred to as a gay icon through my work.

“I am utterly ashamed and devastated at the behaviour of my husband John and Son-in-law Daren and neither of them will have anything to do with my work, my business and right now I honestly have no idea what is going to happen to my marriage.”

Good on you, Sally, though you'd think her psychic powers could have predicted that her husband was a jerk...
