If I believed in reincarnation, I’d be convinced that someone truly slimy in a previous life is being punished by being Khloe Kardashian in this one. Completely lacking in class or personal dignity is one thing, but to be astonishingly stupid while doing so is a fate I’d wish on no one.
Entertainment sources tell the same story, but for amusement sake I’ll quote the Christian Post (they must be beside themselves in glee):
The 27-year-old conducted an on-air interview with reality TV star Scott Disick on her program “Mix Up w/ Khloe Kardashian Odom” on Dallas radio station Mix 102.9, when she began criticizing his style.
“What kind of homo are you? Seriously? That is not what men…a straight man doesn’t carry a Birkin Bag,” Kardashian told Disick.
The word “homo” is slang for homosexual, but the slang is often used to insult gays, and 28-year-old Disick was not impressed with Kardashian’s choice of words.
“Listen to me. First of all, you shouldn’t say homo on the radio. It’s not a bad thing to be a homosexual. You’re making it sound like a negative thing. Third I’m not a homosexual. Fourth, I didn’t come out of the closet. It’s a man bag,” Disick shot back at Kardashian.
A defiant Kardashian went on to defend her use of the word, insisting that she is not homophobic and in fact the opposite.
“First of all, let me just tell you: I am the queen of my gay community which I love and adore. And I promote doing the tranny look-alike contest. I am queen bee over here so don’t even try it,” Kardashian warned.
All I can say is that for a queen bee, whatever that might be, Khloe seems to have an instinct for just the wrong word and very little understanding of LGBT people. None of the transgender people I’ve encountered were trying to look like anything other than themself, consistent with their internally experienced gender.
And, just in case she momentarily got confused and really meant drag queen (or perhaps drag queen bee), I offer this advice:
Khloe, if some drag queen said she was trying to “look just like Khloe Kardashian”, believe me, honey, that wasn’t a tribute.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
The 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.
