  1. Hey ! How comes nobody’s ever told me before there was a gay conspiracy ? I want to be in !

    (Yet maybe not in Uganda, it looks a bit too dangerous over there – more seriously I think the situation in Uganda looks more and more critical to gay people, I hope local population will come back to their sense and push authorities to revise their judgement and policy)

    1. I don’t think that’s very likely even in the medium term.

      All over the world where ignorance is left unaddressed bigotry abounds; e.g. Amerika’s very own bible belt, most of Africa and the Caribbean isn’t that gay friendly either.

      Look at the ignorance in Amerika due to the appalling education system and then imagine what it’s like in the bush.

      1. You’re probably right, yet I’m not sure education necessarily prevents hate politics. After all, Germany in the 1920s was the most educated population on earth, and yet decided to let the Nazis rule them.
        Anyway, even the poorest countries will get more and more connected to the entire world, and this could bring a cultural change in the masses (social progress has almost always come form the masses, not from politicians, contrary to the propaganda history we learn at school), bringing a new era of tolerance. Of course I only expect this to be in the long term (but who knows ?).

  2. [i]Scotland: Poll shows majority of population supports marriage equality[]/i
    Quit polling and start lobbying the politicians? Everyone should be able to marry the one one loves.

    [i]Poland rejects proposed civil partnerships but will get hate speech laws[/i]
    One wave broke on the beach, but another is waiting to break through the dunes of conservatism.

    [i]French government announces same-sex marriage will come very soon[/i]
    If this actually goes through the anti-socialists must really be gnawing their paws.

    [i]German court tells lesbian asylum seeker to hide her identity in Iran[/i]
    It’s the new Europe. No asylum unless you’re useful. If not, godspeed and gtfo. America, are we doing it right?

    [i]Ugandan government says it discovered evidence of gay conspiracy[/i]
    It’s a mind game I tell ya. They’re in your heads. Yes, point that gun at your brain…

    [i]U.S. Republican Senators introduce a rewrite of their “cyber security” bill[/i]
    They’ll try again and again until all freedoms have eroded along with liberties. The same goes for democrats.

    [i]1,000,000 school-aged children were homeless during the last school year[/i]
    and a million politicians are counting the money they save on housing.

    [i]New school RFID scheme reminder of technology’s surveillance potential[/i]
    Time to leadline your wallet…

    [i]Tens of thousands protest against restarts of nuclear power plants in Japan[/i]
    Unfortunately it’s the most reliable ‘alternative’ energy. Although Japan could try to harness earthquakes or tsunamis.

    [i]CIA fake vaccine program will have wide-ranging effects on children’s health[/i]
    Whether this is true or not… the CIA is a disease no matter what.

    1. Trust me, America is not “Land of the Free” unless you add the little “If You’re Christian.”

      1. wasn’t suggesting it was :) and don’t forget the “If you’re rich enough to buy off the hounds…”

      You are twice smarter than the Polish government. They are wrong in both cases, you are only in one.
      //If this actually goes through the anti-socialists must really be gnawing their paws//
      I got no paws, claws, hooves and horns. But I have guns, knives and even a nice crossbow ;)
      //and a million politicians are counting the money they save on housing.//
      Housing and its witch sisters Rent Control, Zoning, Building Codes, Mortgage Subsidies etc. are the main reasons of homelessness. It’s as true as a^2+b^2=c^2.
      Anyway, my great respects for you, I agree with your other points. With my all heart.

    3. Marriage Equality Bill goes before Parliament in September and will hopefully become law by next September. So Scotland would be the first in the British Isles to have Gay Marriage.
