The Brave Little Hairdresser

Timothy Kincaid

February 24th, 2012

Oh good heavens.

More detail has been provided on the tale of the poor little hairdresser who stood up to the vile gay-hating governor and who bravely stood on principal and refused to cut her hair. Turns out that this wasn’t exactly what happened.

Actually, Gov. Martinez didn’t ask him for a haircut. He had cut her hair once but wasn’t her regular stylist. Rather, he called her to inform her that he had discovered her position on marriage and was no longer available. He informed the press as well.

Oh, and while he was at it, he thought he’d throw in a insult based on her ethnicity. Cuz nothing proves that you have the moral high ground and are the injured party like engaging in a little racism.

Geez, thanks buddy.

As for Susanna “that Mexican” Martinez, I don’t know much about her but she has gotten some heat lately from the wingnuts for a gay appointment and she took the opportunity to tell the press that she opposes discrimination and thinks people should be judged on their merits.

Just a thought… Please don’t put yourself forward as a champion for our cause if you just now discovered that your governor doesn’t support marriage. If this hasn’t registered til just now, odds are that you may not be the ideal spokesman. Because you’re dumber than a box of sanatorium santorum.

I appreciated the loose, casual style of this, with the “cuz” and “geez,” but you might want to check that “sanitorium/santorum” typo near the ends.

Glad the gov “opposes discrimination” for individuals and their merits, but not supporting marriage IS a form of discrimination. So I think she’s talking somewhat “confusedly” (a nicer term than “out of her ass”).

I don’t know… I’m having fun trying to imagine what a “box of sanatorium” would be.

Oh. Thank you for the integrity demonstrated in this article, especially important when it’s so often necessary to point out ways those on the other side tend to let each other get away with much worse.

Jim, frankly, it sounds like someone with a short fuse and a poor filter, or an anger management problem. In fact, if my uncle has gone into hairdressing… nah, can’t be.

And yes, if you’re going to questions someone’s intelligence, that’s the posting to double-check the spelling and grammar before hitting “post”. Goober.

Oh good heavens.

Otto Korecht, that dreadful imp that lives in my phone, just loves to replace the words I correctly type with other clever replacements that leave my sentences jibberish. Guess I didnt catch him this time. No,Otto! Bad imp!

And yes, if you’re going to questions (sic) someone’s intelligence, that’s the posting to double-check the spelling and grammar before hitting “post”.

And if one is going to criticize another for spelling mistakes one should be extra careful themselves. 8-D

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.
