Freedom for Some

For some Americans “Freedom” means that Christians and “conservatives” should be allowed to discriminate everyone who isn’t straight like they used to and often enough still discriminate everyone who isn’t white. On the other hand they liken those who demand the freedom to love whoever they want to the Nazis. Literally. In their eyes not wanting to be treated as a second class citizen because of your sexual preference makes you just as bad as those guys who killed millions of Jews, gays, intellectuals and socialists in concentration camps in World War II. Literally.

This mind-set is once again expressed in a film US senator Rick Santorum is producing in the wake of a verdict from the US Supreme Court that ruled that companies are people and can have religious views and therefore are allowed to circumvent the law that would require them to cover women’s contraceptives in their health care plans (which, unlike Viagra that these companies don’t object to at all is something many women actually need) and also gives them the freedom to just ignore laws made for example to protect queer employees from discrimination.

Please read more about you being a Nazi on Bilerico and watch the trailer for the film below…

Against the Defence of “Ex-Gay Therapy”

US Republicans on the far right sure do love their false equivalence, especially when it comes to “scientific experts.” No matter that every major medical association decries gay conversion therapy as ineffective and potentially harmful — just find one or two people to say otherwise and suddenly there’s “compelling testimony from both sides of the issue.”

False equivalence is the rhetoric quicksand of productive debate, and Anderson Cooper isn’t having it. During a recent interview with Texas Republican Rep. Bryan Hughes about the party having added support of conversion therapy to their official platform, Hughes played the “experts are divided” card. To which Anderson replied:

“It’s really just not accurate to say that doctors are evenly divided. I could give you a list: the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Counseling Association, the American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychological Association, the American School Counselors’ Association, the National Association of School Psychologists, National Association of Social Workers. They represent half a million mental health professionals, [and] they all say this is not a mental disorder. It’s not something that needs to be cured.”

The problem with speaking logic to someone who is knowingly full of shit is you can bet they aren’t going to budge. And Rep. Hughes played the part well, dodging substance and sticking to his canned bullet points. No matter that Anderson also shows a clip from his interview with former conversion guru Alan Chambers who has denounced the practice as traumatic and a waste of time.

“Does it concern you, again, that your party is now backing a form of therapy which basically every major medical organization says doesn’t work, can be harmful, and which many of the people who have been through it say it doesn’t work and is bad for kids?” Cooper asked.

It does not bother him, apparently, since all Hughes can reply with is repeating that he’s heard from “experts” and “read reports” that say otherwise. And thus the conversation goes full circle…

Thailand’s School Rainbow

A new project created in support of queer youth is making the city of Bangkok a much more colourful place. Launched in commemoration of the 2014 International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia on May 17, the School Rainbow project "promotes the drawing of rainbows, symbolizing diversity, around school gates and other settings where youth meet," according to organizers.  As part of the project, Thai students chalked enormous rainbows in schoolyards around Bangkok "with the aim of bringing awareness to the problem of bullying," before the organizers talked about queer kids’ right to a safe education with the students.
