Want to prove your homophobe credentials? Play ‘Ass Hunter’

The above is the ad for the game Ass Hunter, a top-down shooter game in which players hunt and kill gay men. Existing as an online Flash game since 2006, the game has been available from Google’s Android app store for weeks. With more than 10,000 downloads and more than 200 5-star reviews, this game is every homophobes dream come true. Finally they have something that allows then to engage in their homophobic desires. Marriage equality got you down? Download this game and put gay men down for the count. Think God wants believers to fight a holy war against homosexuality? This game allows you to be a warrior for Christ.

Oh, and then there’s icing on this shit-cake.  From the description of the game:

Popular game hunting on gays is now on android! Play and do not be gay! Legendary game, where you are hunter and your mission is to kill gays as much as you can or escape between them to the next level. Gays may be hidden in bushes and unexpectedly catch you. Remember! When they catch you they will do with you whatever they want 😉

Not content with a game that simply allows players to act out their bigotry and prejudices, the makers of Ass Hunter decided to play upon the unfounded fears of homophobes that gay men secretly want to rape them.

Lovely.

Thankfully the Google Play Store bans apps that contain hate speech or violent/bullying behavior, so no more Ass Hunter from Android.  The bigots will have to continue playing the game online.

“I don’t support marriage equality. It doesn’t mean I’m anti-gay!”

Thus spake Laura Ingraham, Tea Party pundit, and Fox News guest host.

On her radio show today, conservative Tea Party pundit and recent ABC News contributor Laura Ingraham talked about Mike Huckabee’s threat to leave the GOP if the Party doesn’t fight same-sex marriage. While she spoke in support of him, she attempted to soften her stance.

According to Ingraham, being against the right of same-sex couples to marry doesn’t make someone anti-gay. And being against the right of same-sex couples to marry doesn’t mean someone is judging other people.

Having totally not squared that circle, Ingraham then suggests she might open to same-sex marriage as long as it can be proven that “it’s ultimately about what’s best for the children” and has a long history of working.

“What do we know definitively works, and worked, and what is still an unknown, what did [our country] historically believe?”

Which is like saying you’re totally up for changing your hatred of chocolate as long as someone can prove that for centuries it has tasted like vanilla.

“To say that you’re for traditional marriage doesn’t say that you’re anti-gay people or you don’t like gay people… nobody’s saying that.”

Words. It’s like she doesn’t know how they work.

Point the first-
Marriage is not about children. There is no need for advocates of marriage equality to prove that same-sex marriage is beneficial to children. If you’re going to argue that married people must have children, then you’re going to have to also go up against heterosexual people who choose not to have kids. You’re also going to have to go up against heterosexual people who cannot have kids. You’re also going to have to go up against heterosexual people whose kids have grown up.
Point the second-
You’re operating under a dictionary definition of hatred. That you don’t literally wake up every morning, drink your cuppa, wash your face, brush your teeth, feed your pets, and conclude with a daily mantra of “I hates the gayz” does not prevent you from being homophobic. Homophobia is more than just hatred of gays. It encompasses discrimination and bigotry directed at gays. It covers prejudicial or biased opinions of gays simply because they’re gay. It covers disgust or disdain shown to people who are or are perceived as being gay simply for being gay. It also covers treating gay people as less than human-i.e. denying them the same rights as heterosexuals (equal protection under the eyes of the law).
Point the third-
Your opposition to marriage equality-at the core-is an irrational, bigoted position that is not based on empirical evidence. It is based on your antiquated, regressive religious views.

Accept your inner homophobe. We all know that you don’t advocate for marriage equality. We know you’d be happy enshrining discrimination into the US constitution. We know you’re not going to skip hand in hand with us at gay pride parades.
And really, that’s fine, because I don’t think there’s enough soap in the world to get the homophobe off me if I touched you.

Trigger Warning:  Homophobia

Remember that letter from a loving Christian father to his children where he says he will continue proudly loving his kids if they are gay?

Here is a story that is the polar opposite of that.

KABLOOEY! Bigots’ heads explode in the wake of SCOTUS decision on Marriage Equality

Conservatives across the country, especially in Utah, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Virgina, and Indiana hoping SCOTUS would weigh in on marriage equality were bitterly disappointed today.  Several lower court rulings in those states found the bans on same-sex marriage to be unconstitutional, and of course conservative assholes across the country got their fee fees hurt.  They appealed to SCOTUS in the hopes that the highest court in the land would take up their appeals and rule in their favor. Today, SCOTUS decided they would not take up any of the lower court rulings on marriage equality. That means those states where the rulings were stayed will be null and void (though not immediately). Lesbian, gay, and bisexual people in those five states will be able to get legally married very soon.  But wait, there’s more. Six other states–North and South Carolina, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, and West Virginia–all fall under the jurisdiction of the appeals courts that struck down the bans.  This means that same sex marriage will soon be legal in 30 of the 50 states in the US.

Court document puts the lie to self-defense claims in Philly gay bashing case

‘Self-defense’.  Ha!

One of the attorneys of the three individuals accused of beating two gay men on September 11, 2014 is actually claiming that they acted in self defense.  A recently released court document does not support that claim:

Now that Kathryn Knott, Kevin Harrigan and Philip Williams have been charged with the crime, an affidavit of probable cause describing the incident has been made available by the court.
