regardingstraightpeople:

Straight privilege is saying that all non-straight people should be fine with homophobic slurs and jokes because you found one non-straight person who says they weren’t bothered by that incident.

regardingstraightpeople:

Straight privilege is thinking there’s no point to including other sexualities unless it’s to make a statement - “why’d they use a gay couple for that advert? There’s no point, it’s not about being gay. Using a straight couple would’ve worked just fine, why bother?”

"No one ever cares to ask women. Porn has become engineered for the male gaze. But it doesn’t have to be. In an ideal setting, we would have porn that represented all ethnicities, body types, sexualities and they would not be portrayed as fetish, but simply as casting of peoples. I can’t tell you how uncomfortable it makes me feel that my race is considered ‘fetish’ or subcategory. Yeah, I know that the norm in all media is white folks, but never is it more pronounced and awful than in porn. But the constant question of what will or won’t turn women on is so insulting. And Molly’s assertion, while attempting to say that women don’t need something separate or different in porn portrayals, manages to segregate women even more. And furthermore, reads like someone who doesn’t watch or appreciate porn.
Which is fine, but if no one wants to address the problems with it and only criticizes by putting it at arm’s length, while holding their nose, that ain’t no way to tackle the issue."

If you don’t think there should be a fat, ugly, or gay princess you don’t really understand what Disney is all about. It’s about inspiring all people to love themselves and reach for their dreams, not about traditional values and good looks.”

you clearly don’t understand what Disney is about.
it’s a children’s entertainment company that teaches good morals.that’s it.

Y’all gay people, fat people, ugly people don’t have good morals! We need to protect the children from them because only straight mostly white skinny princesses can teach good morals! The rest of you need to be hidden from society because you teach kids to be bad!

PAYPAL: END THE ONLINE HATE TRADE [TW: HATRED OF LGBTQ PEOPLE]

whatfreshhellisthis:

Did you know that PayPal is making it easy for some of the world’s most violent anti-LGBTQ hate groups to raise money online to fund their hateful agendas?

One of the groups using PayPal, Abiding Truth Ministries, frequently sends their leader Scott Lively on trips to build a standing army of extremists dedicated to discriminating against LGBTQ people.  After one of these trips, Lively bragged that he delivered a “nuclear bomb against the gay agenda in Uganda.”  Just days later, his Ugandan hosts introduced the horrifying “Kill the Gays” bill.

PayPal already has a policy that prohibits use of its service “for activities that […] promote hate, violence, racial intolerance” - but groups like Abiding Truth Ministries - and 10 others we’ve found - are falling through the cracks.  If enough of us speak up, PayPal will shut down the accounts before these groups raise even one more dollar. Please join me in asking PayPal put hate out of business by shutting down their accounts and banning all anti-LGBTQ extremists.

Ten Extremist Sites Served by PayPal

  • Abiding Truth Ministries (International)
    Extremist group that makes the outrageous claim that “the Nazi Party was entirely controlled by militaristic homosexuals.” 
  • New Generation Ministries (Latvia/International)
    Extremist church based in Latvia with branches in 15 different countries. The church’s members have been tied to the homophobic murder of Satendar Singh. In one video, at an anti-LGBTQ rally, church leader Alexy Ledyaev says, “homosexuals are not happy or spiritual people, because they were molested and abused in their childhoods, but that does not give them the right to abuse and rape others!” 
  • Noua Dreaptă (Romania/Balkans)
    Ultra-nationalist group that has been linked to organising demonstrations and planning violent attacks on Pride celebrations in Romania and Moldova. 
  • Truth in Action Ministries (formally Coral Ridge) (United States)
    Extremist church that spreads anti-LGBTQ lies such as “bible-believing Christians would quickly find themselves unwelcome in Barney Frank’s new pansexual, cross-dressing military.” 
  • Dove World Outreach Ministries (United States)
    Infamous “Burn the Quran” hate church whose pastor preaches that “homosexuality makes God throw up.” 
  • Julio Severo’s Last Days Watchman Site (US/Brazil)
    Brazilian anti-LGBTQ leader and writer/ideologue who fled Brazil after LGBT activists brought a lawsuit against him for incitement of hatred. Julio regularly repeats the lie that 10% of gay people are pedophiles, and goes further to say that most gay men “drink urine, swallow feces and experience rectal traumas on a regular basis”, while they are “drunk, stoned or in orgies.” 
  • Faithful Word Baptist Church (United States)
    This church’s Pastor Steven L. Anderson has described gays as “sodomites” who “recruit through rape” and “recruit through molestation.” 
  • Family Research Institute (United States)
    Known for saying that gay people are predatory and diseased perverts who victimise children. 
  • Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (United States)
    This groups claims homosexuality is a “lethal behaviour addiction,” a “dangerous” practice that is “neither normal nor benign.”
  • American Society for the Defense of Tradition Family and Property (International)
    International Catholic extremist group originating in Brazil and with active branches in Argentina and the United States. They are known for organising homophobic rallies all over the United States and buying advertising asking people to “join the Crusade” of “conscientious resistance” to “the homosexual ‘moral revolution.’”
