    Not sure how to feel about this. I can see the amusing side, but how would we feel if somebody were to hack into an LGBT support site and use it to post anti-gay messages and imagery? Or if somebody hacked into a gay person's personal account and posted false or inappropriate information about his sexuality? There are young men and women who are struggling to come to terms with their sexuality and using online resources for support and advice and to build their confidence, and if they were to log in one day and see a load of anti-gay material it would be quite damaging. Maybe I'm overreacting, and yes we need to take a stand against homophobia, but a line has to be drawn somewhere. I hope these hackers aren't being too irresponsible.

    I disagree with everything you said. Calling someone "gay" should sound just as stupid as calling someone "straight." It shouldn't matter! The perpetuation of homophobia is in the manner we use and think about the word "gay" and "fag." For those who are mouthpieces of anti-gay propaganda, they'd WANT you to see these terms and photoshops as an aggregious offense and recoil in fear for having made them. That is the issue for many who come to terms with their sexuality that don't belong to heteronormativity. The mixed signals from the culture about being queer is a silent, internal conflict filled with lots of violence. I think that this conflict is in part what drove Omar Mateen to madness. He was caught in the middle of conflicting ideologies and is brain was unable to cope. Queerness is not inherently bad. In fact, I think we need to celebrate these pictures as gay affirming and queer the fuck out of ISIS because any kind of fearful response to them or any extreme opinion that demonizes the queer community only validates their purview when being queer isn't the problem. The violence is.

    I approve of Anonymous' actions here. ISIS is the sum of the earth.

    What is really needed is for the cyber warriors within US Government agencies to hack all ISIS sites they can find and render them inoperable.

    Wopuldn't it be nice, if they could cause the terminals at the other end to explode, and kill the operators? (Science fiction - a pity.)

    I think you ARE overreacting, it happens on this site all the time. Think about how many trolls hack into these forums, to spew their right wing, fascist, anti-Democrat, anti-liberal, anti-gay, comments...

    Given their brutal treatment of gay people (and others) I think it is wholly appropriate to mock ISIS and their sympathizers with gay symbolism. In fact, anything that pisses them off is just fine by me.

    Negativity for negativity?? So that they will continue to feel a reason for their brutality.

    Fair enough. i didn't consider that it was already happening on here. I was thinking of sites like empty closets, which is more of an online safe haven for men and women of all ages and backgrounds questioning their sexuality and looking for support.

    ISIS are doing or (given their rapidly shrinking "caliphate") have probably done their worst already. They don't need a "reason" for their brutality, which is largely an end in itself. They should be mocked, all the way to their shallow graves.

    They're mocking ISIS.
    Not hacking some Muslim elders's twitter accounts.
    I'm cool with it.

    No, not a dumbass, but more to clarify my remark, maybe I did use the wrong word... Not so much "hack" into this site, but more like "highjacking" the forum...

    I'm kinda torn from principle on this. Of course ISIS is beyond most concerns of principle at this point, given their totally evil actions. I'd be happy if the US returned to the old "shoot to kill" engagement rules for dangerous criminals regarding ISIS members. No surrender, you simply annihilate them on the spot as you find them.

    But at the same time, who decides who's evil or not, who gets hacked by Anonymous or not? I didn't get to vote for Anonymous. Are they free to attack as they wish, without any accountability? Your fellow countryman nice_chap raises some of these issues in a post above. What if these hacking tools are turned against the "good guys", in his example the LGBT community? How do you regulate this power?

    (As an aside, I wonder why some of the most thoughtful and well-written RJ posts come from the UK? I assume it's the education system, or the culture, or maybe the water. Who knows?)
