Stephen Colbert Under Attack From GOP and Gay SJW’s Over Trump Blowjob Joke – #FireColbert

Anti-Steven Colbert articles are being written at a furious pace and social media has blow up with negative comments over one certain part of Colbert’s anti-Trump monologue  on Monday night’s episode of “The Late Show”.

 The joke that is drawing so much ire?

 “The only thing your mouth is good for (Donald Trump) is being Vladimir Putin’s cock holster.”

Now two days later the hashtag #FireColbert hit the Twitter trending list and is still going strong with Colbert coming under attack not only from right-wing Trump supporters but from over-sensitive members of the LGBT community.

 Wrote James Michael Nichols Queer Voices Deputy Editor, The Huffington Post:

Colbert’s decision to make this kind of joke illustrates a kind of casual homophobia that permeates American culture ― even among supposed liberal allies with massive media platforms. It positions sex between two men as doing something so mockable and inherently emasculating that it’s the ultimate “fuck you” to Donald Trump ― because what could be more embarrassing to a man than having a cock in his mouth? And what could be more offensive that being compared to ― or put in the submissive position of ― a woman?

 At the heart of jokes like these is an erroneous belief that men who have sex with other men are the ultimate failure of masculine expectations. The “comedy” within this idea reeks of a bygone era where the power of straight, white men went unchecked and people not meeting their ideals of masculinity ― namely women, gay people, trans people, people of color, minorities in general ― continued to always be the butt of the joke.

Wow. Over analyze  there much Jimmy?

And then we have

Of course, these homophobic jokes are themselves somewhat misogynistic. Trump is the butt of Colbert’s joke because he is the one performing oral sex on Putin, rather than the other way around. The indignity Trump suffers comes from being feminized, from assuming the role that a woman usually fills. Indeed, this is why many scholars and (more recently) courts have suggested that homophobia is rooted in sex discrimination: From an anti-gay perspective, by playing this “passive” role, a gay man betrays his place in the gender hierarchy by doing what a woman should do. Being assigned the female role comes with baggage — it means that Trump is incompetent, powerless and controlled by Putin.

Some might claim that the humor lies not in insinuating the two presidents’ homosexuality, but rather in their reaction to our insinuation. We can imagine that both of these men, who emphasize their machismo and who are no friends to the LGBT community, would object to being called gay. So what we’re laughing at is not the joke itself, but their imagined reaction to it. Rather than being homophobic ourselves, we’re laughing at the unenlightened homophobia of the jokes’ targets.

I mean honestly.  With all the LGBT community is facing at this time including an expected Religious Freedom Executive Order tomorrow that will legalizes discrimination against is under the guise of religion, our civil rights being attacked and rolled back at an alarming rate, LGBT hate crimes rising, and the wholesale slaughter of gay men in Chechnya these two brain trusts use their time and energy to focus on a blowjob joke?

How about setting some priorities here.

To these two gentlemen and all the others focusing on Stephen Colbert’s blowjob joke while our world crumbles and burns around us I have only one thing to say.

Suck my cock.



Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal To VETO Of Anti-LGBT “Religious Liberty” Bill – HRC Takes All The Credit

After months of backlash and the threat of losing billions of dollars in entertainment industry revenue Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal declared today that he will veto his state’s anti-LGBT so-called “religious liberty” bill. Among his reasons are that Georgia does not protect its LGBT citizens from discrimination in the first place, so further legislation is not necessary.

Despite being absent for most of the anti-LGBT bill’s passage through the Georgia Senate and House and only addressing it twice, once in a photo-op delivering petitions to Georgia’s capitol and secondly by mentioning an entertainment boycott at an HRC Gala after many of the boycotts had already began. The Human Rights Campaign and Chad Hunter Griffin are once again trying to take all the credit for something they did not do..

The Human Rights Campaign Press Release.

Deal’s veto comes one week after HRC President Chad Griffin called on Hollywood to stop productions in Georgia if Deal refused to veto the legislation at HRC’s Los Angeles Gala. Soon after, many of the biggest entertainment companies in the world responded to the call — including 21st Century Fox, AMC Networks, CBS Corp., Comcast NBCUniversal, Lionsgate, Live Nation, MGM, Netflix, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Starz, The Walt Disney Co., Time Warner, The Weinstein Company and Viacom. And more than thirty leading actors, directors, producers, musicians, and agents signed HRC’s letter demanding that he veto the proposal.

“Our message to Governor Nathan Deal was loud and clear: this deplorable legislation was bad for his constituents, bad for business, and bad for Georgia’s future,” said HRC President Chad Griffin. “Today, Governor Deal heard the voices of Georgians, civil rights organizations, as well as the many leaders in the entertainment industry and private sector who condemned this attack on the fundamental rights of LGBT people, and he has set an example for other elected officials to follow. Discrimination and intolerance have no place in the United States of America, and we hope North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory and the North Carolina General Assembly are paying close attention to what has transpired in Georgia. They must undo their disgraceful attack on LGBT people in the state’s upcoming legislative session.”

Crickets from HRC (of course) about all the hard-working LGBT activist, individuals and media on the ground who did the real work.  But that’s how that corrupt good for nothing gay org spins.



March 3, 1990: "Paris Is Burning" Opens in the US. Watch the FULL Documentary [Video]

Trans Gone Wild: Trans Activist Attack Iconic Documentary “Paris Is Burning” 25 Years Late

Paris is burning


Paris Is Burning is a 1990 ground breaking documentary film directed by Jennie Livingston. Filmed in the mid-to-late 1980s, it chronicleed the ball culture of New York City and the African-American, Latino, gay, and transgender communities involved in it. The film is considered to be an invaluable documentary of the end of the “Golden Age” of New York City drag balls, and many  critics have praised it as a thoughtful exploration of race, class, gender, and sexuality in America as well as much needed documentation of LGBT history.

That is until now.

Now 25 years later a planned screening of PHB on June 26th  in Brooklyn has prompted arts organization BRIC  to re-think the showing because some Tans Queer POC now find it exploitative .

A change.org petition titled Cancel Celebrate Brooklyn/BRIC’s screening of Paris is Burning & End the Exploitation of the Ballroom Community and TQPOC! reads in part:

While Jennie Livingston and Mirimax [sic] profited immensely off of this anthropological foray into the lives of low-income TQPOC ballroom members, through years of lies and dishonesty, Livingston was able to use people for the sake of her own fame and has been living off of their stories ever since. In the meantime, most of the original cast has been murdered or has died in poverty. This is exploitation of a vulnerable population who trusted Jennie to do right by them.


– Apologize to the affected parties listed

– Use the platform that you’ve gained through our stories to speak out against the atrocities that are killing us daily. Violence against trans women of color specifically, like the still unsolved murder of Venus Xtravaganza, is still rampant. Share your limelight with people and organizations doing work that benefits the communities in the film.

– Pay retribution to the survivors and communities of the people you exploited in Paris is Burning with all future proceeds.

Livingston, who was an NYU film student at the time PIB was made responds.

I’m grateful the conversations here encouraged me to deeply consider my relationships, both to surviving members of the Paris is Burning cast and to the TQPOC community at large. As we move forward towards the 25th anniversary of the film, I need to keep talking with the cast members themselves about how they feel about the film and its continued distribution. And if they’re interested, about how can the cast and I work together to benefit the community?

Last year Junior Labeija and I did a screening to raise money for the Ali Forney Center (which serves homeless queer youth). So many of the people in the film are gone: what are we empowered to do to continue their legacy and honor their memories, to benefit ballgoers, and to fight violence against trans and queer people of color?

PIB received funding from the National Endowment for the Arts when the organization was under fire for funding  “controversial artists” as  Robert Mapplethorpe and Andres Serrano.

Some of the most heavily featured performers attempted to sue in 1991 for a share of the film’s profits. Paris DuPree sought the largest settlement with $40 million for unauthorized use of her ball. . All dropped their claims after their attorneys confirmed that they had signed releases.

Now I am 100 percent for trans equality BUT this lazy activism of Trans Activists always default to in attacking anything inside the community rather than actually taking on the bigotry outside of it is beyond maddening and quite honestly does their cause more harm than good.

Hopefully one day they’ll realize that.

Watch out To Wong Foo With Love Always, Julie Newmar. You’re next.



HRC Sends Out Presser Applauding Gay Marriage In Alabama But Not Those Who Actually Did The Work For It

Gay Inc


In what only can be seen as a chance to grab some good PR from an event that they had absolutely nothing to do with.  The Human Rights Campaign today sent out a statement in the wake of the Supreme Court denying a request for an extension of the stay in Alabama and  called the odds of SCOTUS issuing an anti-equality ruling later this year “virtually zero”.

Via statement:

This may seem like a simple, procedural move — one the Supreme Court has made in the past in cases ranging from Alaska to Florida. But, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) notes, all those denials took place before the Court had agreed to take a marriage case. The decision to allow marriages to begin in Alabama means something dramatically different now that the Supreme Court oral arguments in a marriage case are just weeks away.

“By refusing to halt marriage licenses in Alabama, the Supreme Court has telegraphed that there is virtually zero risk that they will issue an anti-equality ruling this summer,” said HRC Legal Director Sarah Warbelow. “Instead, the odds of a ruling bringing marriage equality to all 50 states have increased significantly.”

In light of the Supreme Court’s action today, marriage equality will be the law of the land in Alabama beginning on February 9th, 2015. On January 28th, the Alabama Probate Judges Association issued guidance to all parties that, “on the occasion that the stay is lifted, same sex couples may apply for marriage licenses.”

HRC congratulates the countless committed and loving couples in Alabama that will soon be able to marry.

And to the couples in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia, Arkansas, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, and Michigan:

Start your wedding plans now.

But please notice how they didn’t congratulate the grassroots activists, the couples themselves and their lawyers who actually did do all the hard work. And God forbid they thank Edith Windsor who without which right now we would be nowhere near as far as we are with states winning marriage equality. Also   I’d be remiss if i didn’t remind people that HRC originally wanted no part of any of the court cases that have lead to these victories.

Longtime Ohio LGBT activist who is still waiting for same-sex marriage to hit his state Tom Morgan had a few choice words for HRC’s  upon reading the press release:


Tom Morgan snark
