“Facebook is recruiting you to the gay cult” with rainbow-flag “like” button, Return of Kings warns

Facebook: Turning the dogs gay?

By David Futrelle

The fellas at internet garbage site Return of Kings are celebrating Pride Month, a little tardily, with a post attacking Facebook for adding a “degenerate” rainbow flag to its menu of “like” buttons, which users can access by liking the official LGBTQ@Facebook page. Or, as the author of the RoK piece, one Rufus Winnfield, puts it, the “button is only active if you show active approval for homosexuals on the site.”

Winnfield was so afraid of catching teh gey himself that he didn’t bother liking the LGBT page to check out what the button looks like, which results in him calling the flag-shaped flag icon “a little rainbow ball.” (Not to be confused with the Star Wars Cuck Ball.)

Apparently teh gey is quite contagious, as Winnfield goes on to explain how Facebook’s addition of this tiny optional button shows that the site “is recruiting you to the gay cult.” Winnfield evidently worries that the cute little button will lure unsuspecting readers of RoK into “liking” gay things on Facebook; next thing they know they’ll be dancing on a float at the Pride Parade wearing the collar of their leather daddy.

Winnfield isn’t a big fan of Pride Month in general.

“Establishing a pride month for the gays is legitimizing them as if they’re black,” he explains to RoK readers, many of whom actually hate black people.

It’s a savvy move by the gay community to adopt everything that isn’t heterosexual, monogamous sex as part of their movement under the ever-increasing umbrella of their rather clunky acronym.

This may backfire upon them if they over-extend their relevancy by endorsing the next big thing like pederasty or bestiality, but, for now, their strategy seems to suck up everyone who isn’t completely straight in the head.

Channeling the Westboro Baptist Church, Winnfield goes on to explain that the whole gay rainbow thing is an insult to gay-hating God.

Since America has been a primarily Christian country since it got started, many things, like Jewish pornography and Satanism, exist solely to bash on it. Supposedly the gay rainbow flag represents a lot of things, but the rainbow was originally God’s promise that He would not ever flood the earth again after the great flood. Seems like it’s part of the gay M.O. to pervert religious symbols.

While Winnfield assures his readers that really, he’s “got no issue with a dude liking another dude,” he asks plaintively why these dude-liking-dudes

have to spread their degeneracy to everyone, including children? … Do they hate Western culture so much that they would drop the birth rate so far below the replacement rate that Islam can just waltz right in in two generations, throw them off the nearest rooftop, and set up a caliphate?

Winnfield is really covering all the bases, hate-wise, huh?

In the interest of covering all my own bases, let’s end this post, which started with gay dogs, with a gay cat.

Enjoy the rest of Pride Month, everyone!

I think it’s a little unfair to say that abortion laws in NI are even mainly down to DUP

Yeah, I suppose I was coming from the position they’ve been the ruling party for so long. But it’s true that Sinn Fein’s position isn’t much better. Although they will contemplate abortion in very limited cases. Which by the standards over there is almost liberal by comparison.

Very slightly off topic:

I’ve noticed that it’s becoming fashionable among the ones who consider themselves ‘rational’ to dislike pride parades, with people re- and reposting the odd comment or two by a person claiming to be gay disliking the parades, using terms like ‘degenerate’ and ‘deviant’ and wondering why the gays can’t just be invisible.

Being liberal has been a long lesson in finding out that some people may be comfortable with the idea of something, but not with the reality of it. I predict we’re going to see sharply increased homophobia among those we label ‘liberal’, and it’ll start with comments to the tune of “I support gay rights, but…”

They found ‘liberal’ and ‘progressive’ excuses to not have to vote for a woman, so they’ll find excuses to hate people who have the wrong sexuality. I’m sure as shit going to my local pride parade this year.

Hello.

Jewish pornography ? Woody Allen movies ?
And maybe also the book cover, “The gay dogs” being a pun for “The goy dags” (of RoK) ?

Anyway, it looks more like Whinnyfield than Winnfield. And i am fed up with the “i have nothing and will tell nothing against X, but i think X is [feel free to fill]”. Do i write that “i will not write that RoKers have a mind so narrow that a neutrino can not find its way through, but i think RoKers shit hate in bricks and make a impenetrable wall with them”.

Have a nice day.

A few years ago, the Canadian government cracked down on porn, especially gay porn. Apparently the industry hadn’t been following the rules about 35% “clearly Canadian content”- a singled-out offender being a show called something like “Gay Men of Toronto”. I don’t know if they were supposed to wear Mountie hats or have maple leaf tattoos….

My local independent-league minor league baseball team had their first ever LGBTQ pride night* earlier this months. My wife (who I got to marry me by using all sorts of alpha game) and I attended with two gay friends. There were lots of rainbow flags, a gay men’s choir desecrated the national anthem by singing beautifully while gay, and now I’m gay. If only I had paid more attention to Roosh’s warnings.

*In all seriousness, one of the friends and I were talking later that even 5 years ago we wouldn’t have imagined they’d have a pride night in our little redneck town. Or, if there had been, there would have been protesters outside trying to pray the gay away. In a whole year of defeats, it felt like a quiet victory.

@Mish Yeah, the CRTC can be brutal in that regard. It applies only to broadcast content (which I assume Mike was referring to) so anything internet-based is anybody’s game, but I gotta admit… I think that policy has paid dividends.

I’m thinking mostly back to my Big Shiny Tunes collections (which I think I’ve brought up in prior threads). For those Mammotheers not Canuckian, back in the halcyon days of the mid-to-late 90s, MuchMusic (Canada’s MTV) began putting out compilation albums of its most popular songs. IIRC, they had two series: the Much Dance series and Big Shiny Tunes. Much Dance was always labelled by year (Much Dance 1998, Much Dance 1999), while BST was given a number with the first being released in 1996. Coming at the tail end of the Grunge scene and the onset of Alternative rock, early BST offered an eclectic mix music chart toppers in Canada. For every Semi-Charmed Life, there was a Money City Maniacs. For every Dragula, there was an Apparitions. If it weren’t for the CanCon regulations, I may never have heard of Matthew Good, Sloan, The Tea Party, Big Wreck, Our Lady Peace just to name a few of the Canadian acts that stuck with me as a result of those compilations.

On the other hand… those also introduced me to Nickelback. *shudder*

Well, Happy 150 Canada… may you continue to rock out with your… uh… socks out!

Apologies for the OT, but I’m still shaking a little and oh what fun I seem to be crying. Just got back from accompanying someone to their disability support “interview”; I’m sure I’ve been as stressed, but never more. I wish I were a barrister with years of experience specialising in disability rights; I would have needed to be, to defend the person I was with as they need and deserve. Not that there was probably anything in the least bit unusual or specially horrible about the interview, not at all; the whole system is simply (ha! “simply”) designed and set up to prove that the person can be given less or no support and legitimise removing it.
Haven’t slept properly for several nights worrying about this, and I suspect it’s going to be quite a while and a lot more nights before I can stop replaying it in my head and thinking of all the things I should have said …
I did my best, and the person I was accompanying did their best, and we will see in some weeks from now.
I just sort of felt the need to say something.
Hoping things are good and well for you all, and that you all are as good and well as you can be.

weirwoodtreehugger: chief manatee

I feel you on that, Opposable Thumbs. That’s one of the reasons I’m for universal basic income. The hoops disabled people have to jump through to get support are absolutely ridiculous. My dad is constantly doing paperwork on behalf of my brother. And I mean constantly. At least once a week, they ask for more information. Often times info that’s already been provided. It makes me think the system is designed to force people into just giving up even trying to get benefits. I would not be in the least surprised if they spent more money trying to keep people from getting benefits than they do actually paying out benefits. They make my brother go in once a year and take all sorts of tests to prove he’s still disabled. There’s no cure for autism, so why in the everloving fuck would he be suddenly not autistic in a year’s time?

I get stressed just watching my dad deal with this stuff. I’m scared for when my parents die and I’m the one who has to help my brother. I don’t know how I’m going to deal with it.

WWTH, fuck that’s even worse – a lot worse! Constantly asking for more evidence etc. even as often as every week, jesus H christ on a bike that’s essentially harassment, and harassment of the most vulnerable at that. (Info already provided? Yup. It turned out at the interview that they were inexplicably missing a key document that I know had been sent in with the main dossier (because I saw it go into the envelope with my own eyes, and wrote it on a list of enclosed items at the end of the main file)). (Luckily I had taken a photocopy of all the enclosures with me, so they had to offer to photocopy my photocopy and keep a copy for themselves. )

I would not be in the least surprised if they spent more money trying to keep people from getting benefits than they do actually paying out benefits.

This has been very seriously raised here. The “interviews” have been farmed out to private companies who are making a nice profit out of it. I completely forget, my brain having gone a bit swiss cheesy now, but come to think of it are you in the UK? If so we’re probably looking at the exact same pile-up.

“I support gay rights, but…” — followed by something deeply homophobic.

“I’m a feminist, but…” — followed by something undeniably sexist.

“I’m not a racist, but” — followed by something jaw-droppingly racist.

Every time I hear somebody say “…but…”, I know what’s coming. And then I glimpse my own brain before I black out from all the unexamined cognitive dissonance.

I really wish they’d quit with all the but-but-butting, and just say the bigoted thing. No caveats, no prefaces, no varnish. And then sit down and ask themselves why they’re such bigots underneath their “civilized” veneer. And maybe resolve to do something about all that.

But clearly, even that little hint of self-awareness is too much to ask for. And, as we’ve seen with Laci Green, “do something” too often means “giving in to unadmitted bigotry and just going full Nazi”.

Scott Adams still isn’t sure Sarin was used in Khan Shaykhun. Because our UN Ambassador said “sarin or sarin-like weapons” were used. Apparently that means that she’s not sure it was sarin, so it might be wrong.

What it really means: the chemical test used to detect sarin also detects things like sarin which are also toxic. She was being precise about the test results, not “unsure whether it was sarin”.

@Mike, Mish, GussieJives:
Of course, without ‘Canadian Content’ regulations, we probably wouldn’t have Bob and Doug MacKenzie as characters.

As I understand it, the sketch comedy show SCTV was mostly created by the Toronto branch of The Second City comedy club (the original club being in the original ‘Second City’, a.k.a. Chicago). Despite the fact that most of the writing was being done in Toronto and most of the cast was Canadian, the CBC wanted to have ‘identifiably Canadian’ content in order to run the show. After some snarky commentary, Dave Thomas and Rick Moranis created what was originally a throwaway gag bit of ‘The Great White North’ as a sort of ‘you want Canadian Content, here!’ snap, with pretty much all the dialog ad-libbed. And then they were rather surprised when it became popular enough to eclipse much of the rest of the show…

I’m not in favor of universal basic income simply because welfare benefits are typically arranged as a transfer of wealth from the government to service providers, with the people who are “receiving” the benefits getting gouged and screwed. I would prefer to completely revamp the welfare system to take the middlemen out of the process as much as possible. I can see universal basic income creating an inflation problem as service providers try to tap into as much of that sweet, sweet government cash as possible.

On what do people spend their money? 1. Shelter. 2. Food. 3. Medical care. 4. Miscellaneous expenses like phones and necessities. (usually in that order but not always)

Shelter and food can be combined into one benefit by providing universal housing. A hybrid dorm/co-housing system that accepts everyone with no means testing would be my answer of choice. People would live in separate private rooms, but come together for mealtimes and the residents would take turns preparing meals for one another (the food itself would be provided).

Yes, there is likely to be a stigma attached to living in socialized housing. I don’t see a way around that – being on housing benefits is already stigmatized and all efforts to reduce the stigma have simply funneled government money directly into the pockets of private developers without actually solving that problem. I don’t think that problem is solvable.

Having a universal housing option so that no one has to be homeless could solve so many social ills. How much bullshit do we put up with out of fear of losing our housing? All of that would go away, greatly reducing the amount of bullshit in our lives. Of course, this is a pipe dream right now, because Republicans would never allow such a system to receive the necessary funding. The dream is for enough universal housing to be available that anyone could leave a bad situation, tonight, and in a few hours find themselves well-housed in a clean, secure environment with good meals every day without having to prove a need. No Republican would get behind that.

I can think of drawbacks beyond the funding problem, but that’s the outline of how I would start to rewrite the American welfare state if I had the power to do it.

This is a nice thought, but it would not work well for people who need to have dedicated food preparation areas due to allergies, autoimmune disorders, etc.

Co-housing arrangements don’t require you to participate in the meal, just that you participate in meal preparation once or twice a month. It would be easy to set aside part of the kitchen (which, in co-housing arrangements, is a big commercial-sized thing) as a non-allergenic prep area and people with allergies could make their own food there. When an allergic person’s turn comes around, they make a non-allergenic meal.

Many people who co-house only eat the communal meal once a week or twice a week, while others eat every day. But everyone has to take a turn making the communal meal. How much do you know to make? People sign up on the board if they intend to come, as an RSVP, so you know approximately how many servings to prepare. People who don’t come to the meal make their own arrangements the same as if they were living alone.

Communal housing has its virtues, but ultimately it comes back down to the government deciding what’s best for poor people. You can spend all day hashing out how to accommodate different kinds of people, but ultimately, what it comes down to is that it’ll work for some people and not for others, and the people who it doesn’t work for (say, if you have an underwater mortgage) it provides no benefit.

The beauty of UBI is that you can apply it to whatever you happen to need, rather than relying on someone anticipating what you’d need and providing it.

Legit critique, but I still see most welfare benefits today enriching the already-well-off while the poor remain poor. Housing vouchers? Enrich developers and landlords, not tenants. Food stamps? Enrich the owners of stores that accept them, especially the ones who game the system by offering low-quality food in food deserts.

I can’t see how a basic income is going to escape this trend.

weirwoodtreehugger: chief manatee

What I like about UBI is the universal part. The stigma against welfare is never really going to go away. Or at least it won’t anytime soon. Even with a revamped and more generous system, there will always be excuses to cut it. Universal programs are more popular and once they’re in place, cuts and repeals are deeply unpopular. Look at the way social security (universal for anyone over 65) is talked about as opposed to anything means tested. Same goes for public services everyone uses, like roads. Roads get decently funded because those who use them aren’t seen as moochers.

In theory I don’t have an issue with a robust welfare system instead of UBI, but I just think the latter would work better in the US. Passing it in the first place would be a gigantic hurdle, but once it’s implemented, people won’t want it cut or repealed. Nothing is perfect, but UBI is probably the best option at the moment IMO.

UBI won’t come into effect until the Republicans have less control. They’re still trying to work out a way to take from the poor and give to the rich. Thankfully they’re not entirely in favor of that idea yet. Keep calling if you live in the US.

Republicans are generally not in favor of “big government” and that includes the social safety net that’s been put in place over the last 8 years.

weirwoodtreehugger: chief manatee

Yeah, UBI is a distant dream. It’s not going to be until enough jobs are permanently lost to automation that no one can deny it’s happening until there’s even a prayer of it even becoming a mainstream conversation. I hope that big business will eventually get on board when they realize that an unstable economy full of impoverished an unemployed people means not enough people can afford their goods or services. But wealthy executives tend to be really married to Randian ideology, so I’m not sure it’s ever going to happen.

English being English, words keep evolving – often despite stubborn attempts to hold them to their original meaning (“decimate” is one that I’ve recently given up on; the tide is too strong).
However:
Etymologically and historically, pederasty refers to sexual relations between males where there is a distinct age difference. Whether this is consensual is not built-in to the definition itself; i.e. the word ‘pederasty’ does not signify molestation or abuse by itself. But nor does it signify “gay butt sex” by itself 🙂

Pederasty in Ancient Greece (the origin of the term, as far as I know) generally meant a relationship like the above, that also involved teaching or mentoring. Much of this is completely outside of our contemporary frames of reference for sexual relationships; it’s also very difficult to do it justice in a few sentences, so I won’t try any further 😐

There are people out there who would use this as an excuse to intimidate or harass the people that have to room with them, as well as survivors of rape and abuse who justifiably are frightened of having to live with people who even unintentionally trigger memories of the trauma.

the people that have to room with them

Nobody rooms with anyone in co-housing.

Do I need to explain co-housing? It’s googleable. Co-housing communities are highly-sought-after and very expensive because so many people want to live in one but there aren’t very many. The system facilitates community but you choose how much you interact with your neighbors and aren’t forced to do it if you don’t want to. Nobody “rooms” with anyone. Living quarters are private to each family (and “family” can mean “individual”).

There is an element of self-selection in existing communities, because people who aren’t okay with the co-housing arrangement don’t move into one. But co-housing is flexible. There is a bare minimum of participation required (contributing to the communal meal prep when it’s your turn to do it) and beyond that it is up to you. Since poor people tend to become isolated in current systems, and isolation leads to any number of social and health problems, facilitating community is an important goal. Making sure that introverts can remain introverted is accomplished with co-housing, but so is making sure that people who need child care can meet with others who need the same thing to allow the pooling of resources.

Current housing assistance isolates people. That needs to be acknowledged as a problem. Current policy does not think it is a problem, but it is one.

Or, yanno, rent controls.

Eh? The shortcomings of rent control are pretty well researched. Rent control reduces the amount of housing available to the poor, it doesn’t increase it. Why would I want to promote that?
