More bad news for the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), as a major donor has announced plans to sever funding to the organization on account of a controversial anti-gay policy.
The United Parcel Service (UPS), Inc. will soon adopt a non-discrimination policy that disqualifies the BSA from future funding, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) reports. UPS follows the Intel Foundation in withdrawing corporate sponsorship from the BSA, GLAAD officials note in an email statement.
“UPS and The UPS Foundation do not discriminate against any person or organization with regard to categories protected by applicable law, as well as other categories protected by UPS and The UPS Foundation in our own policies,” UPS officials note on the company’s website. “These include, but are not limited to race, gender, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran or military status, pregnancy, age and religion.”
Denying a sick person medicine: totally within God’s will.
This is disgusting and that doctor should be investigated by the health board int hat state and have their license revoked immediately.
Patients with HIV cannot afford to miss doses of their medication because it risks the virus becoming resistant to it if they do. It is imperative that HIV positive patients take their medications at specified times every day. This doctor was grossly negligent and discriminatory and their actions could have caused serious health problems with this patient.
And the nurses who allowed this to happen should also be investigated. Someone should have reported this doctor and I wouldn’t be surprised if this kind of behavior has happened before with that particular doctor.
As a doctor. You take an oath. To do no harm. This is BIG TIME harm.
That doctor needs to have her license revoked.
Best comment: “More importantly, you can’t expect patients to accept death simply because you find their medical condition incompatible with your narrow, bigoted viewpoint. Doctors should be no different than any other Public Utility…the electric company doesn’t get to decide who can have electricity based upon some institutional bigotry!”
IT’S TRUE. Why do we allow people to get away with this shit in the most dangerous fucking area possible where people’s LIVES are at stake when we don’t at any other fucking level!? Wtf, America? No one else does this. It’s abhorrent and fucking backward that this is the type of country we apparently want to be.
I don’t have words to even begin to describe how disgusting this is.
This is how much money towards top surgery I’ve made so far thanks to lovely donors, commissioners, buyers, and my new job! I’m really proud of myself and hope that I can keep it up. I’m also incredibly grateful for the support and help I’ve gotten from everyone and want to thank you all.
I’m still selling things, if anyone is interested.
I have a blue classic Nintendo DS WITH a charging cable, and a silver classic Nintendo DS WITH a charging cable. No stylus for either, unfortunately, but I will update with that if I find them. :D
If you’re interested, they’re $70 each plus shipping(I’m open to haggling/reasonable offers, though!). BUT If you pay $75, I’ll throw in a copy of Pokemon Diamond or Pearl with your DS.
I also have an American (MWT) Blaziken pokedoll up for grabs, with offers starting at $100. He’s a rare little birdy, hence the high price. But he’s been well taken care of and is in pristine condition!
Also currently up for sale is a rare Mewtwo UFO catcher plush. He still has a tail tag, but no hang tag and is in excellent condition. No dirt, discoloration, rips, or any other forms of damage! Offers for him start at $60!
I will combine shipping on multiple items, provided I can find secure packaging that will fit and maintain each item’s condition.
Message me if interested!
Thanks so much for your help and interest!
rebagling for minor signal boost
One step closer to marriage equality in my state: the gay marriage bill was approved by the Senate in a 28-21 vote, a larger margin than expected and with no ridiculous amendments tacked to it.
I could not be more proud of our legislature at this moment, and that’s not a compliment I hand out often.
Now it just needs to pass in the house (where it is expected to pass easily).
Anybody else find it remarkable that homosexuality seems to only get approval from the patriarchy so long as it’s two straight-looking women (no short-haired tomboy dykes need apply!) and so long as the patriarchy is laboring under the delusion that after she’s finished going down on her ‘girlfriend’ she’ll then go down on your cock, too?
But approval ain’t respect. I pass as straight all day long. But I can state that I happen to like having sexyteims (or snuggleteims, whichever) with members of all sexes, and I’m not gonna be taken serious. ”Isn’t that cute, she thinks she’s special”. ”I’m pansexual and panromantic” apparently translates into patriarchy-speak as “I’m really straight, I just like sex a lot but I want to seem like a special fairy princess snowflake. You probably have a chance at sleeping with me because PAN MEANS EVERYTHING RIGHT HELL I’VE GOT NO STANDARDS!”
Well fuck you for even making me have to explain what I am, and double fuck you for making no effort to understand it.
The patriarchy does none of us any favors.
[A three panel comic. First frame: Purple color scheme with a young boy sleeping and smiling, saying “Yeah… I like that. …Of course! …Oh what’s that? You want me to ride you…?” Second frame: Same boy sleeping, same color scheme. Boy says, “…Oh yessss… Faster! Faster!” Last frame: Boy is riding a unicorn on a rainbow with stars in the background, saying “Ride like the wind! I love you, Unicorn!” Unicorn says, “I love you too, K! We will gallop our way to happiness!] [via wavingatsailors]
All of my dreams are just like this.

“I know everything about medical science! I watch House!”
“I know everything about law enforcement! I watch Law & Order SVU!”
“I know everything about useless air-breathers! I watch Jersey Shore!”
ohhh, actually that last one might be a bit more accurate than the others…
Ney Matogrosso is a Brazilian singer, important in the Brazilain music scene since the 70’s, known for his high-pitched voice and glam performances. The video above is a song from the 80’s, the following are the lyrics I’ve translated from Portuguese (a bit hard to translate, since there are too many idioms).
I’ve never seen the trail of a snake,
or the skin of a werewolf.
If run it gets you,
if you stay, it eats you. [an idiom that means “there’s no way out of it”]
Because I am a man
I’m a man
I’m a man,
Oh boy, I’m a manly man!
When I was about to be born,
I heard my mother said
“I want very much
that this baby turns out a man
very manly and macho-like”
Oh, mommy, here I am
I’m a manly man
Very much so!
Pay attention very carefully
I’m almost dating someone
And I intend get married
Maria says that I am
A manly man!
Very much so.

Everything about this I love.
[anon ask: “We make GLBTs (or LGBTs) during Pride Week. BLT+Guacamole. They’re fantastic.”]
Okay, I don’t really like guacamole or tomatoes, but I would eat that sandwich, I would eat it like a woman I love.
