Bad Press

We usually don’t like to report these things as we can see it being used to promote the crazy “Gays want to make everyone gay ‘agenda’” by the homophobes, but sometimes we just have to. We in the LGBT community are just like everyone else in the larger heterosexual community; there’s good and bad in everyone, no matter what your gender and sexual orientation.

Joke of the Week

Three coworkers were discussing politics at a bar. One was gay, and two were straight. The straight white man asks, “So what kind of an agenda do homophobes think gay people have?”

The gay female responds, “Oh, you know, the usual: They think we’re trying to make everyone else gay. The oh no, the gays are taking over the world and tempting us all to sin! type of thing.”

The straight white man puts down his glass and asks, “You mean to say that’s not true? I know for a fact that Blacks have been trying to turn everyone else black for years!”

The straight black woman then say, “Yeah, it’s true: the evidence is in the tanning salons.”
