Canadian Man Receives Apology For High School Yearbook’s Anti-Gay Slur 42 Years Late

After 42 years a Vancouver, British Columbia man has finally received an apology for the gay slur “fag” which was published in his high school yearbook.

Robin Tomlin  has received a letter of apology from the North Vancouver School District for a homophobic slur that was printed in his high school yearbook more than four decades ago.

Via CBC News

I am writing to formally provide you with a sincere apology on behalf of the entire North Vancouver School District,” says a letter sent to Robin Tomlin on Oct. 4 and signed by John Lewis, the district’s superintendent of schools.

Tomlin has been haunted for years after his high school yearbook committee printed the word “fag” next to his picture in the 1970 Argyle Secondary School yearbook.

Tomlin isn’t gay, but he says the slur stuck and he was badly bullied in school. He says he was even too afraid to go to his school prom for fear of being beaten up and eventually moved out of the area to start a new life.

Video – Kobe Bryant Calls Ref Bernie Adams "Fucking Fag" During Lakers v. San Antonio Game – Fined $100,000.00 Dollars


Basketball superstar Kobe Bryant was hardly a role model last night to the million of kids who look up to when Bryant yelled out a homophobic slur toward referee Bennie Adams calling him a “fucking fag”  from the bench after receiving a technical foul during Tuesday night’s game against the Spurs.

Bryant has since apologized  saying “What I said last night should not be taken literally. My actions were out of frustration during the heat of the game, period. The words expressed do NOT reflect my feelings towards the gay and lesbian communities and were NOT meant to offend anyone.”

I wonder how Kobe would react if someone called him a “fucking ni**er” out of frustration. Or what would happen if it were done in the middle of a televised basketball game?

Kobe Bryant has been fined $100,000.00 or his use of the homophoboc slur against Referee Bernie Adams

Vanity Fair Writer Brett Berk Issues Public Apology For Calling "GLEE" Characters "FAGS"

Last night I reported here about Vanity Fair writer Brett Brek, an openly gay man who reviewed  reviewed last week’s episode of Glee titled “Sexy“,  and refereed to two of the main teenage gay characters of Kurt Hummel and Blaine played by Chris Coffer and Darren Criss “foam-party fags”

Well word spread via the Internet and Twitter and lo and behold and not long after Berk issued an apology on his website:

Back2Stonewall.com would like to thank all of you out there that picked up on this and sent your complaints to Mr. Berk.
Despite the fact that Brett Berk states that he used the description in an “off handed way”.  Words DO have consequences especially when describing two teenage gay characters in a mainstream magazine in what could be seen by others as a derogatory manner.
Again THANKS to all who helped.

Vanity Fair Writer Brett Berk Describes Kurt & Blaine On GLEE As "Fags"

Vanity Fair writer Brett Berk just stepped into a whole lot of sheet (music)

While reviewing last week’s episode of Glee titled “Sexy“,  Berk referred to the two main gay characters of Kurt Hummel and Blaine played by Chris Coffer and Darren Criss doing a rendition of Neon Tree’s “Animal” as” foam-party fags”

It’s surprising that Vanity Fair would even print a review of this and whats even more surprising is that Berk who is gay himself and  who obviously received his writing degree from the Copacabana School of Journalism has no idea what a “foam party fag” is actually like.

Expect a Press Release from GLAAD in 2-4 days, more if Vanity Fair is a contributor.

"GLEE" Gives America A Lesson About The Use Of The Word "Fag" (Video)

Burt Hummel tells Finn he won’t stand for the word “faggy” in his home.  It was an extremely  well-done scene. Even the actors said in interviews that while it felt emotional on paper, it really took on a life of its own when they actually performed. And most importantly it hit all the important points


Cowboy Cord McCoy Called Amazing Race Winner Jordan Pious A "Fag"

Oh here’s a shock a redneck cowboy who hurls anti-gay slurs.

The Amazing Race finale is over and despite CBS publicists’ pathetic efforts to get the players not to talk about things outside of the lame, noncontroversial stuff (“Let’s talk about their strategic play on the show”), Jordan Pious, the gay Rhode Island man and his brother Dan, who won The Amazing Race told Reality TV World that cowboy Jet has a problem with gay people. (Cowboy brothers Jet and Cord Mccoy came in second)

From Reality Blurred:
*Cue Brokeback Mountain music*

Dan said, “Jet hates gays, yeah,” and Jordan said that “he made comments about Carol and Brandy (Lesbian Team)  on the show.” Dan added that “Jet called Jordan a ‘fag’ Saturday night for absolutely no reason and Jordan just said hello to him, so there was something on the Race and I guess, in all fairness, there’s some stuff that isn’t shown and I think it’s an important thing to get out. Because I don’t think there’s any doubt that certain things happened and it all plays a part in everyone’s reaction. … I think there’s some animosity but it really goes one-way.”

As far as CBS trying to keep it quiet it´s not really all that shocking. CBS tried all season to make Cowboys the favorites who are always perfect and in the last epspecially CBS went out of it’s way to make Dan and Jordan into “the villians” for no reason.

Anti-Gay Graffiti Found At University of California – Davis Campus, LGBT Center Vows To Leave Slurs Up

For the second time in just a few days, hate graffiti found on the UC Davis campus is being investigated as a hate crime.

Anti-gay words and phrases were found spray-painted on the campus Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Resource Center on Saturday morning, the latest in a series of incidents on University of California campuses across the state.

The graffiti at the Davis LGBT Center drew comment from students who said such incidents are rare on campus.

“You don’t normally hear about hate crimes here at Davis,” said Giselle Camarillo. “That’s just really surprising.”

The Center’s staff have vowed to leave the graffiti up as a reminder that intolerance still exists.
