The Daily Agenda for Wednesday, November 9

TODAY’S AGENDA:
My apologies for not posting anything yesterday except for yesterday’s agenda. I’ve been extremely busy. I’ve got a lot of things in the pipeline for BTB, but they are time consuming. Which means they’ll be done and published when they’re done.

And as for today’s agenda, this is one of those days where I don’t have any notifications of anything happening, nor do I have any historical items or birthdays to write about. But I do have this from Domenick Scudera, describing what a typical day in his totally gay lifestyle looks like:

7:00 a.m. I wake up, and just as I have done every morning since puberty, I choose to be gay today. This will come as a great relief to my gay, homosexual, male lover who lies beside me. Because being gay is a choice, our relationship is a gamble day to day. Even though we have both chosen to remain gay and to be together every day for the past 16 years, we never take anything for granted. One of us just might throw in the towel one day and give up the lifestyle.

7:30 a.m. I take a gay shower and let the gay water rinse off my gay body.

8:00 a.m. I have a gay breakfast of cereal with milk, and a good, strong, gay cup of coffee. I am fortified for another day of ruining the fabric of American society.

That doesn’t hold your interest? Well how about this video that Rob Tisinai found: a bunch of old Chinese people singing Lady Ga Ga’s “Bad Romance”?

I wake up, and just as I have done every morning since puberty, I choose to be gay today.

Choose to be gay? Most gays are gay; they don’t have to choose if they want to live with themselves.

Um, Don… It’s a joke.

Jim, here’s one for you. James Rennell Rodd, a minor, if unimportant, poet born this day in 1858, I think. He might have been an early jiltee of oscar wilde. Mostly he’s not remembered at all.

This morning, I woke and chose to be gay (again; gotta stop doing that). Then I chose to have blue eyes (although I swear, I’m gonna try those brown ones someday) and chose to be 5’10” (but I admit I’d like to try a couple more inches, just to see).

Turned on the weather report while shaving, and heard that it’s going to rain today.

Well! I don’t support rain. Not at all; never will I support, endorse or encourage rain (especially near schools or in the military).

So I called the weatherman. Believe me, I let him have it for endorsing rain like he does – a mention of it is bad enough, but he lets it have its say, describes it, measures it, treats it like it’s “normal.”

Well, he got a sore ear from me. The least he could do, I said, is narrow his eyes at it to make it know how unwanted it is. Frown at it to make it go away. Ban it from public display. Wise up to its agenda. Quit giving it exposure and special rights.

How can you “support” rain and still call yourself a weatherman? I asked.

There was no answer, but I think he got the message.

“I’ve got a lot of things in the pipeline for BTB, but they are time consuming.”

You’ve got my attention. Your in-depth pieces represent some of the best work in the blogosphere. Not the gay blogosphere, the whole blogosphere.

Don’t toy with us, Burroway. Give us a hint!

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

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. This story is a stark reminder that there are severe and damaging consequences when therapists try to ensure that boys will be boys.

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.

From the Inside: Focus on the Family’s “Love Won Out”

On February 10, I attended an all-day “Love Won Out” ex-gay conference in Phoenix, put on by Focus on the Family and Exodus International. In this series of reports, I talk about what I learned there: the people who go to these conferences, the things that they hear, and what this all means for them, their families and for the rest of us.

Prologue: Why I Went To “Love Won Out”
Part 1: What’s Love Got To Do With It?
Part 2: Parents Struggle With “No Exceptions”
Part 3: A Whole New Dialect
Part 4: It Depends On How The Meaning of the Word "Change" Changes
Part 5: A Candid Explanation For "Change"

The Heterosexual Agenda: Exposing The Myths

At last, the truth can now be told.

Using the same research methods employed by most anti-gay political pressure groups, we examine the statistics and the case studies that dispel many of the myths about heterosexuality. Download your copy today!

Testing The Premise: Are Gays A Threat To Our Children?

Anti-gay activists often charge that gay men and women pose a threat to children. In this report, we explore the supposed connection between homosexuality and child sexual abuse, the conclusions reached by the most knowledgeable professionals in the field, and how anti-gay activists continue to ignore their findings. This has tremendous consequences, not just for gay men and women, but more importantly for the safety of all our children.

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

Anti-gay activists often cite the “Dutch Study” to claim that gay unions last only about 1½ years and that the these men have an average of eight additional partners per year outside of their steady relationship. In this report, we will take you step by step into the study to see whether the claims are true.

The FRC’s Briefs Are Showing

Tony Perkins’ Family Research Council submitted an Amicus Brief to the Maryland Court of Appeals as that court prepared to consider the issue of gay marriage. We examine just one small section of that brief to reveal the junk science and fraudulent claims of the Family “Research” Council.

Daniel Fetty Doesn’t Count

Daniel FettyThe FBI’s annual Hate Crime Statistics aren’t as complete as they ought to be, and their report for 2004 was no exception. In fact, their most recent report has quite a few glaring holes. Holes big enough for Daniel Fetty to fall through.
