About Those “Sexually Explicit Movements”

Can anyone find a press release from the Ft. Worth Police Department complaining about intoxicated women in straight clubs making “sexually explicit movements”? Say, strippers in topless bars, for example? Or any drunken college co-eds? Were they thrown to the ground and given a head injury because of it?

Hmmmm, I didn’t think so.

I am surprised that the ACLU has not shown up yet to take statements and start the filing of a suit. God knows if I had been there I would have already.

This is unbelievable. If i was a judge, i would sentence those bastards to be at the gay bar every Saturday for 6 months doing go-go dancing. let’s see your damn gay panic now.

actually, having served in the US Navy for 20 years and always being stuck as the ‘duty driver’ since I dont drink I can say that I have never had a police officer come in to any bar I’ve been in for anything.

Mind you they were all straight bars, topless or nude bars and the like. But I never saw any cops or heard of a cop coming into the bar looking to arrest people who were drunk unless the bar staff called them.

When I was in college there was a notorious campus security officer who’d go to off-campus bars looking for underage students who were drinking. His name–I kid you not–was Ronald McDonald. I can’t imagine he had that much power, but bartenders at places near the campus would always ask for IDs, simply because they didn’t want any trouble.

That is the only example I know of someone in a uniform going to bars specifically to find lawbreakers. Years later I played darts at a bar where a lot of off-duty cops hung out. (They were really nice guys, too–they set an excellent example.) One night the place was raided because it had illegal gambling poker video games in the back. The off-duty cops–who were there almost every Friday and Saturday night–had no clue. It was really funny. They recognized the cops who were raiding the place and asked, “Hey, what’s going on?”

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.

Straight From The Source: What the “Dutch Study” Really Says About Gay Couples
