The Internet offers opportunities for minority groups, not only for anti-gay-minority groups, to create virtual spaces in which their values are considered normative. Consequently, within the spaces of the Internet, gay culture has changed.
Dr. Mowlabocus said that gay identity is now largely a cyber one. Important elements of gay culture are carried by the Internet and other forms of digital communications. There are thousands of sites where gay males can communicate, locally as also internationally. Many of these are specialized in their focus. Some are used for searching out dating relationships (like heterosexuals do). Others serve to bring together those desiring quick anonymous sex.
More than 185,000 people worldwide have signed a solidarity pledge with Russians who are calling on their government to stop the crackdown against lesbian, gay, bi and trans people that is fueling anti-gay violence. The world urges President Putin to show love and compassion for his fellow citizens who simply want to be who they are without sacrificing their family or freedom, safety or dignity. Furthermore we shouldn’t forget: God Says Homosexuality Is In

As a soon to be mother of three I think it’s utter stupidity and ignorance to compare equal rights for all ADULTS to pedophilia. I would never in a million years support pedophilia nor would anyone in their right mind IMO but comparing homosexuals with pedophiles shows extreme unintelligence and I feel utterly sorry for the children who has to grow up in a household where this stupidity is advocated. And FYI I’m straight if that even matters or gives my opinion more credibility in the world of homophobes. Last time they just called me brainwashed.
But more to the point, this picture is wait for it…. LEGENDARY!!!
Oh lord, I am so sick of hearing about “one step closer to pedophilia being legal” obviously anyone saying this has no brain in there head. No way would this happen. There’s no way our country is going to sanction rights for pedophiles. Ur not even comparing apples to apples. How is love between 2 consenting ADULTS anywhere near molesting a child.

Lyrics from Same Love (Macklemore & Ryan Lewis) > click the pictures to watch the video …
The right-wing conservatives think it’s a decision / And you can be cured with some treatment and religion / Man-made, rewiring of a pre-disposition / Playing God / Ahh nah, here we go / America the brave / Still fears what we don’t know / And ‘God loves all his children’ is somehow forgotten / But we paraphrase a book written / 3,500 years ago / I don’t know …
If I was gay / I would think hip-hop hates me / Have you read the YouTube comments lately / “Man that’s gay” / Gets dropped on the daily / We’ve become so numb to what we’re saying / Our culture founded from oppression / Yet we don’t have acceptance for ’em / Call each other faggots / Behind the keys of a message board / A word rooted in hate / Yet our genre still ignores it / Gay is synonymous with the lesser / It’s the same hate that’s caused wars from religion / Gender to skin color / Complexion of your pigment / The same fight that led people to walk-outs and sit-ins
When I was in church / They taught me something else / If you preach hate at the service / Those words aren’t anointed / And that Holy Water / That you soak in / Is then poisoned / When everyone else / Is more comfortable / Remaining voiceless / Rather than fighting for humans / That have had their rights stolen / I might not be the same / But that’s not important / No freedom til we’re equal
Damn right I support it
We press play / Don’t press pause / Progress, march on! / With a veil over our eyes / We turn our back on the cause / ‘Till the day / That my uncles can be united by law / Kids are walkin’ around the hallway
Plagued by pain in their heart / A world so hateful / Some would rather die / Than be who they are
And a certificate on paper / Isn’t gonna solve it all / But it’s a damn good place to start / No law’s gonna change us / We have to change us / Whatever god you believe in / We come from the same one
Strip away the fear / Underneath it’s all the same love / About time that we raised up

What a great triumph today with the rulings from the Supreme Court of the United States regarding marriage equality. Let us take today to celebrate, but tomorrow our work continues. As shown by another ruling from the court this week about the Voting Rights Act, nothing is safe. As long as there are those whose bigotry demands unequal treatment because of race, creed, religion, sex, sexual orientation or whatever other labels they use to segregate and discriminate, the work of those who seek justice and equality continues. Yes, today we celebrate, but tomorrow we must continue the fight until each and every citizen, regardless of where they live, can enjoy the simple right and dignity of joining in marriage with the person they love. There are 37 states remaining where same sex marriage is not allowed. Our fight must continue until that number is zero. But, oh, doesn’t it feel so good today?
