Yeah, you’re all supposed to go antiquing, or to musical theater. How dare you intrude on manly events! Mainly because they’re monitored by sanctimonious bigots.
So, two women go to a baseball game in Minneapolis, and a guard noticed that they kissed each other.
Taylor Campione and Kelsi Culpepper — two lesbian women from Minneapolis — were recently scolded by a Target Field security guard for what they call a “brief kiss.”
After seeing the quick peck on the lips, the guard told the women that “we don’t play grab ass here” and that they must “adhere to the 10 Commandments” while at the stadium.
The guard was told not to do that anymore, but he still has his job. Keep this in mind if any of you gay folk try to visit Target Field: they have professional assholes prowling the stands.
Or how about this? Two gay men who were also developmentally disabled weren’t allowed in a public pool.
“The Pavilion staff immediately entered the pool area and asked my clients and their staff to leave the Pavilion,” stated Shirlyn Perkins, Executive Director of The Pavilion. “My staff asked The Pavilion staff why they were being asked to leave, and they were informed that ‘gay people’ weren’t allowed to swim there. My staff told this man that what he was trying to do was discrimination. The man stated that what he was doing was in the Bible and he could do it. My staff continued to argue with this man, but was ultimately forced to leave. My clients, whom already feel ridiculed and different, left the city owned facility crying and embarrassed for trying to participate in ‘normal’ activities that everyday ‘normal’ people do.”
Say, notice anything in common between these two stories? Like, what lies right at the heart of the bigots’ justifications for their actions? I don’t think it was The God Delusion.
