reenacts Perry v. Schwarzenegger

Timothy Kincaid

January 20th, 2010

On Monday we told you that filmmaker John Ireland would be posting reenactments of the testimony for Perry v. Schwarzenegger. Now he has a website,, to host the reenactments.

Nothing has been posted yet. Maybe the actors are skurrred that gay folk will hunt them down and make frowny faces at them.

Maybe their afraid that they will boycott their store, or office… but i guess it could be said the same the other way around. Seems to me that there are more fire and brimstone conservatives then there are gay ppl, and about 50-50 if your simply talking about promarriage-antimarriage.

On the other hand…
There was a store that was boycotted after knowing it supported prop 8 and the owner which supported it suffered the consequences, Coyote was it… dont remember all that clearly. Havent heard something similar happen to someone that was against prop 8, maybe the pro-gay side is a bit more passionate(or is it militant) and maybe that is what drives the fear you mock.

Joel, I doubt anti-gay people seriously WANT support from gay people. Did racists in the old south fear supporting segregation laws or anti-miscegenation laws because they didn’t want to be boycotted by blacks?

And if gays seem more passionate about this issue, shouldn’t you consider that they are fighting for their rights while the anti-gays are just fighting a battle whose outcome will not affect them directly?

boycott does not qualify as harassment.

People have a right to decide where to spend their money, AND to also let others know the ways their patronage is being used to support someone’s political agenda.

Curiously, there isn’t too much brohaha over someone supporting gay rights. Somehow gay rights supporters are usually PROUD of their support. They issue press releases, post signs, blogs, comments, send out emails.

They get boycotted just the same.

Disney, Ford, Pepsi have all been the targets of anti-gay boycotts. Yet they’ve all generally shrugged at it. Yes they’ve received complaints, but still they don’t see those complaints as threats, as victimization.

I don’t understand the rationale that says “I have the right to say what I want, without having to take responsibility for it.”

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.

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.
