Time to twitter bomb the right, Boehner about the Regnerus study

By: Tuesday March 12, 2013 10:21 pm

Seems to me that if I were a professor and my work and credibility had been questioned, I would respond. If I were a member of highly connected organization in Washington, DC or a member of Congress and a study cited in a brief to the Supreme Court which I supported had been called into [...]

Fundie outfit Liberty Counsel announces challenge to new CA ban on ex-gay therapy for minors

By: Monday October 1, 2012 2:52 pm

The ink is hardly dry on the bill (just signed Saturday by Governor Jerry Brown) and here comes Mat Staver, ready to damage LGBTQ youth at any cost. (MetroWeekly): In a statement released today, Liberty Counsel Chairman Mat Staver announced that the group of social conservatives, which seeks to advance “religious freedom, the sanctity of [...]

Liberty Counsel threatens to sue if California’s Governor Brown signs ban on ‘ex-gay’ therapy

By: Monday September 3, 2012 5:38 am

Mat Staver and these charlatans are only looking for attention. I can’t fathom that they want to take on the merits of conversion/reparative therapy — long discredited — to “pray away the gay” to court. But as LGBT rights advance, groups like Liberty Counsel have fewer opportunities to put on their dog and pony show [...]

Anti-gay junk science proponent shredded on the air (again) by David Pakman

By: Thursday June 14, 2012 7:56 am

For a man whose debunked “work” is still cited in the professional anti-gay world (by the likes of Tony Perkins, Peter LaBarbera, among others), Paul Cameron is horrible at debating his points when pressed. Witness his latest appearance on The David Pakman Show. David wrote me and said: After appearing on my show last month [...]

Flawed study funded by anti-gay org claims to overturn decades of research affirming gay and lesbian parenting

By: Monday June 11, 2012 8:49 pm

The New Family Structure Study (NFSS) is a comparative project which seeks to understand how young adults (~ages 18-39) raised by same-sex parents fare on a variety of social, emotional, and relational outcomes when compared with young adults raised in homes with their married biological parents, those raised with a step-parent, and those raised in [...]

Discredited anti-gay ‘researcher’ Paul Cameron: I’ve been attracted to men since I was 3

By: Wednesday May 16, 2012 3:20 pm

The Anti-gay activist also says Obama is gay, and gay men will rape all boys. I don’t know how David Pakman gets bigots to unload the most outrageous things on the air. Today’s example is Paul Cameron, chairman of the Family Research Institute. Barista Alvin McEwen has been covering Cameron for years. A little about the activist: [...]

Lambda Legal’s blistering video: ‘Sh*t Homophobic People Say’ (on the air)

By: Friday January 13, 2012 3:50 pm

There’s no need for editorial embellishment; just watch and see the bigoted, ignoranct idiocy that comes out of the pieholes of people purported to be, according to the mainstream media, “experts” in presenting “the other side” when there are discussions about anything related to LGBT rights. Lambda Legal provides this compilation: These people are ridiculous [...]

I get VERY frustrated with the gay community

By: Thursday November 3, 2011 6:53 am

I’ll let you in on a little secret. There are times when I get extremely frustrated with some who fight for lgbtq equality. The other day, I was reading an excellent piece on Equality Matters (a really good site), which detailed the fact that Fox News was relying on the supposed expertise of religious right [...]

Gary Randall puts scare quotes around the wrong word

By: Thursday April 8, 2010 1:24 pm

Pediatricians Concerned About “Homosexual” Misinformation in School is the title of Gary Randall’s latest blog post.  Really the scare quotes should go around the words “Pediatricians” and “Misinformation”.  Why?  Because the organization Randall cites, American College of Pediatricians, is nothing more than a junk science laundering facility that admits members based on their anti-LGBT ideology, [...]

NARTH misuses suicide statistics to undermine "partnership privileges" for gay men

By: Wednesday February 24, 2010 8:00 am

With the publication this week of “Gay Male Partnerships No Defense Against Suicide”, NARTH has disingenuously twisted yet another valid scientific study into an anti-gay weapon.  NARTH (National Association for the Research and Therapy of Homosexuality) is an anti-gay organization dedicated to so-called reparative therapy for gays.  NARTH has a history of misrepresenting valid research [...]
