    Rights, rights, rights, that all you hear from gays these days. Where are the feather boas?

    http://freakoutnation.com/2013/11/07/daily-caller-writer-wants-gays-to-gay-it-up-more-and-stop-boring-him-with-wanting-rights/

    FreakOutNationPatrick Howley writes, “Gays have become totally boring, this reporter has learned.” Oh so he’s a ‘reporter’ reporting on the whether gays are boring or not. Sounds like top notch journalism to me.


    Equality, shmequality. I mean, bring back the Village People, you guys! I just wanna dance! icon_razz.gif

    Patrick Howley (Daily Caller)Gayness used to be pretty awesome, according to alternative literature from the period 1954-78. Back in the day, gays were subversive adventurers, trolling the city streets at night on a lustful quest for experience and with an outlaw mentality not seen since the days of the Wild West. They were decadently-dressed sexual superheroes, daring Middle America to condemn them as they pranced their corseted, high-heeled bodies around to midnight screenings of great American movies like “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” “Pink Flamingoes,” and “Mommy Dearest.” They had an ingrained creativity, a patented sense of irony. They had a brand. They had an identity.


    Oh yes, the good ol' days! Anita Bryant misses them so. icon_lol.gif

    It's bizarre how people can look back and say we were cool, when at the time we were scorned and shunned.

    I wouldn't mind a revival of some of the camp traditions, but only if it's hot and dangerous.

    Who wants to be "fabulous" anyways, that is so unmanly. I would rather be fantastic. That is more masculine which means more acceptable.

    No, thanks. I'm not looking to be "acceptable." Girls just wanna have fun.

    A hot, masculine looking radical as evidenced by that serious look on your rugged, sexy face.

    Yes, except that you never experienced any of the following (you brag about this a lot), so you really know nothing about not being accepted.

    March 1970 – Howard Efland, a gay man who had checked into the Dover Hotel under the pseudonym of J. McCann, was beaten to death by officers of the Los Angeles Police Department.[7]
    June 24, 1973 – The Upstairs Lounge in New Orleans, a gay bar, was burned by an arsonist, killing 32 people.[8]
    June 21, 1977 – Robert Hillsborough was stabbed to death in San Francisco by a man shouting "faggot".[9]
    July 5, 1978 – A gang of youths armed with baseball bats and tree branches assaulted several men in an area of Central Park in New York City known to be frequented by homosexuals. The victims were assaulted at random, but the assailants later confessed that they had deliberately set out to the park to attack homosexuals. One of those injured was former figure skater Dick Button, who was assaulted while watching a fireworks display in the park.[10][11]
    November 27, 1978 – Openly gay San Francisco city supervisor Harvey Milk, along with Mayor George Moscone, was assassinated by political rival Dan White at San Francisco City Hall. Outrage over the assassinations and the short sentence given to White (seven years) prompted the White Night riots.[12]
    January 1979 – Tennessee Williams was the victim of an assault in Key West, being beaten by five teenage boys. He escaped serious injury. The episode was part of a spate of anti-gay violence inspired by an anti-gay newspaper ad run by a local Baptist minister.[13]
    June 5, 1979 – Terry Knudsen was beaten to death by three men in Loring Park in Minneapolis, Minnesota.[14]
    September 7, 1979 – Robert Allen Taylor was stabbed to death near Loring Park in Minneapolis. A local reporter interviewed the murderer from jail and was told, "I don't like gays. Okay?"[14]
    October 7, 1979 – 17-year-old Steven Charles of Newark was beaten to death in New York City by Costabile "Gus" Farace, Robert DeLicio, David Spoto and Farace's cousin Mark Granato. They also beat Charles' friend, 16-year-old Thomas Moore of Brooklyn. Moore was critically injured but managed to get help at a nearby residence. It was Moore that identified the four men via a lineup four days after the incident. Farace, the leader of the attack, plead guilty to first-degree manslaughter. He was paroled after 8 years, in 1988. He himself was murdered on November 17, 1989

    As I've so skillfully proven here.
