Haters Gonna Hate: Cruises and Coffee
Seems like a lot of peeps were sippin’ h8erade this week, getting all up in our business and assaulting our coffee-selling establishments! Here’s a breakdown of all the stories about people who didn’t “save the drama for your momma.”
- Passengers Arrested For Gay Sex After Atlantis Gay Cruise Docks On Homophobic Island – via Unicorn Booty
A gay couple was arrested on the island of Dominica on suspicion of “indecent exposure and buggery,” which is essentially the same as sodomy. Adorable-sounding words aside, wtf? Two gay men had sex on a gay cruise and were arrested because of it? Just throwing it out there, but I doubt these two guys are the only ones that were having sex on that ship. Keep it classy, countries where being gay is illegal. Wankers.
- NOM Announces International Protest of Starbucks – via NOM Blog
So NOM heard that Starbucks is an LGBT ally and supports same-sex marriage, and has decided accordingly to protest and whine about how nobody should be lovin’ the homos. Grow up, NOM. Also, taking a look at their blog post, you gotta love the sweeping generalizations that have little-to-no basis in reality. Like the following line:
Clearly, at least half of the country doesn’t support marriage equality, and the vast majority of the rest of the world doesn’t either, even though we’ve had marriage equality passed in a handful of states just in the past few months. But no, we hate marriage equality in this country. Duh.
And now, our D-bag of the Week Award goes to… Alpharetta High School in Alpharetta, Georgia!
- HS Student Body Prez Booted for Proposal Allowing Gay Couples in Homecoming Court – via Unicorn Booty
Reuben Lack, elected president of his high school class, was removed from that post because he wanted to allow gay and lesbian couples on the homecoming court. Nothing like a high school saying, “Ew, we can’t have those people on the homecoming court! What would people think?” High school can be (and in most cases, is) a really rough time for LGBT teens. They need support from peers and from the administration. When stuff like this happens, it reinforces to these teens that what they are is wrong, and that’s a really crappy message to send to your students.
While it’s unclear as to whether the administration removed Lack or his peers did, it doesn’t matter because both are equally crappy, and thus earns Alpharetta High School our D-bag of the Week Award!
Tune in next week for a continued breakdown of the haters, and their d-baggery!
