17. Yes it has!!

I hope you are well!

It is sad so many GLBT people have left this site. It gets very lonely, and little has changed, sadly.

Don't be a stranger...there are way too many of them as it is.

6. I am impressed with the sheer number of DUers who recognize anti LGBTQ posts & tweets

and condemn them, even those from years & years ago. BTW, did you know the phrase "in the lifestyle" is still in usage by gay men? 40 years into my rainbow lavender life, I've never heard that used anyplace but kink settings? What have I also missed? Oh woe is me ( )

13. With LGBTQ close friends I have opinions though I haven't normally posted here

Let me introduce myself,

I don't like to think about other people's sex lives.
I don't want to know about other people's sex lives
I don't think our government should be involved in other people's sex lives unless their actions include pedophilia or sex trafficking or sex tourism or animal abuse

that being said, I have no problem with reasonable public displays of affection between adults or between adolescences of similar ages.

I want everyone to be treated with respect
I want everyone to be treated equally under the law
I want everyone to mind their own fucking business and stop butting their noses in other people's private lives

so of course I support LGBTQ
so of course I support POC
so of course I support immigrants
so of course I support women
so of course I support religious minorities in our country including atheist and muslims

14. In LBN, Don Viejo posted about a straight man killing a gay man b/c 'gay panic'

I will be interested in seeing how many of the recently posted "that's homophobic/transphobic" posters express sympathy or regards.

18. Some will.

See our rights, our very lives, are only good for political fodder. I know who my real allies are, and I know who the bullshitters are. Sadly, the latter outnumbers the former. So, we should all just wait by the stable for our sparkle ponies and wait to be summoned.

Putin is a self loathing closet case.

See, it's "funny" because it is trolling for Russian bots. Get it?! HAHAHAHA!


Oh wait, the punchline is "Putin is a fag!" that is the bait...gay-bashing.

Oh course, the predictable, but...but...the studies...was dragged out.

Rather than the poster taking many gay people’s word that something was offensive. We just need a language lesson apparently - never mind our life long experiences.

Saturday Night Live's Homophobic Trump-Putin Jokes Need to Stop

Lame jokes about the presidents being “gay for each other” are so common you may not have noticed a problem with Saturday’s sketch. But that doesn’t mean they’re OK. Far from it.

Kevin Fallon
12.03.18 11:36 PM ET

It is approaching two years since Donald Trump was sworn into office, which means it’s been two years of Russia “collusion” talk and parsing of his relationship with Vladimir Putin. It’s been endless, and exhausting. That means we are also approaching two years of jokes about the two presidents fucking.

That, too, has been endless, and exhausting—and lazy, and ignorant, and offensive, and base-level, and baseless, and homophobic, and, well, not really a joke at all.

The most recent example happened during this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live, as part of a recurring bit that exists to test your eye-roll reflex: Alec Baldwin’s Trump and Beck Bennett’s always-shirtless Putin making light of their close ties by winking at a homosexual relationship.

The brief bit was part of the episode’s cold open, in which Trump is awake in the middle of the night, despondent about the Robert Mueller probe while at the G20 Summit in Argentina. He’s visited by a revolving door of his shady cronies, including, at one point, Putin.

“Honey, why you still up?” Bennett’s Putin says, emerging from a hotel room door bare-chested with a randy, horny smirk. He seductively pats the small of Baldwin’s Trump’s back. “Come back to bed, babe!”
