The World's New Gay State

More Executions of Gays Planned.

Posted in Uncategorized by thegaystateblog on November 9, 2009

Three more Iranians have been sentenced to death for Homosexuality offenses.

A death sentence is the price one pays for being discovered as a Homosexual in Iran.  According to Pink News, the largest Gay news bureau in Europe, the three men were all minors, at the ages of 16 and 17, at the time of the alleged crimes of engaging in consensual Gay sex with other young males  Iran reportedly leads the world in the numbers of its own children it put to death for various offenses.

Could you imagine Heterosexual children in Holland being executed for engaging in sexual relations as 16 and 17 year olds?  Or in England or Italy?   To our modern way of thinking it is beyond preposterous!  Yet this is the life Gay people must live in the dark corners of the world.  For most of the rest of the world, people cannot see these desperate lives or choose not to pay attention to them.

So while we in the west go on about our lives, remember the millions of people around the world who must fear for their safety and risk decades in prison if their true Gay nature is discovered.  Where is the public outrage?

Lawyers for the men believe the executions could take place any day, but no dates have yet been scheduled.  Amnesty International and the Human Rights Watch are following the story.

The takeaway:  The Heterosexual oppressors would prefer we disappear and they are willing to exterminate us given the chance.  There is no living as a free people as long as they have their boots on our necks.

“Kill The Gays” Tour Continues Its Sold Out Concerts in America.

Posted in Uncategorized by thegaystateblog on November 1, 2009

In my life I have witnessed the swinging of the pendulum more times than I care to admit.  We gain some rights in our quest for Gay Equality and then we suffer setbacks.  I can remember President Clinton planning one of his first Executive Orders to call for allowing Gays to serve openly in the US Military.  Now 17 years later, in order to serve our country with “honor” we must continue to live a lie about who we are as human beings.

 Still in 2009, after David Mixner called on all of us to rally at the U.S. Capitol, our prospects look brighter for Gay Equality than I call recall in my lifetime.  Meanwhile in the parallel universe of “Mainstream America,” life goes on in ways that diminish Gays as less than full citizens.

 Which brings me to one uneducated, unenlightened, anti-Gayite by the name of Buju Banton, a Jamaican who makes a nice living playing to sold out concert halls across America.  It’s not news to most of you reading these words that he has entitled his concert tour as the “Kill The Gays” Tour.  A rabid Homophobe he proudly proclaims to his audiences that “there is no end to the war between me and the faggots.”  His hate inspired lyrics include the passive suggestions of pouring acid on Gays, to “burn them up bad, like an old wheel tire.”  He goes on to sing about how “faggots get up and run” when Buju comes, that “they have to die,”  and describes how to shoot Gays dead in the head with a submachine gun.

 Initially, many venues cancelled his performance and TicketMaster pulled out of its agreement with the “Kill The Gays” Tour.  Since then, many other, independent venues have come forward so that Buju’s followers could assemble to listen to his live, hated-inspired music.  And I am not surprised the ticket sales have been brisk.  Concerts have been cancelled but many others have sold out, including in San Francisco’s Bay Area.  “It is insulting and offensive that here in San Francisco, one of the Gayest cities in the world, we have to tolerate having this hate shoved down our throats under the guise of the First Amendment, right here in our own city” said one protester outside the concert.  “Hate speech like this and like Gangsta Rap,  ought to be illegal.  How does it contribute to a healthy peaceful society?” an unidentified protestor added.

 Tonight, The Buju Banton Hate Fest moves on to the Sunshine State with performances scheduled for Tampa, Orlando and Jacksonville.

 Keep in mind as we celebrate our “victories” that should produce results in Washington, DC “any day now,” victims of Gay Bashings are still beaten and in hospitals and mobs gather to celebrate our oppression. 

 Yes, the pendulum.  It continues to swing. And each time it does, I am less jubilant in the good times, for I understand what is just around the corner.

 The Takeaway:  Even in the USA, we are only free to the extent that our oppressors allow us to be.

 And in The Gay State:  We are free and equal and do not rely on non-Gay Heterosexual masters to tell us when we can have some freedom and how much we will be tolerated.  Hard earned freedom is ours and we have proclaimed it!
