by Accidental Bear

I must admit, my first response to this news was my hope that these two gay solders had it in them , to open up a can of whoop ass on this anit-gay offenders and call in my flag holders reading, “See , See , don’t fuck with us fags.” Unfortunately the indecent did not end well, but with the attacked left with bruised ribs and facial fractures among other serious injuries.

Hateful ‘gay free zone’ stickers Gets Man Arrested

by Accidental Bear

I love unicorn, rainbow, cotton candy, water melon and kitten stickers but not anti-gay stickers. It seem like a lot of work just to post your hate publicly. Cases like this usually end up with the perpetrator going off his crazy meds or something mental health related. Now, will some get this boy some scratch and sniff snickers, aromatherapy has many proven benefits. I betcha no one has ever tried to cure homophobia with aromatherapy scratch and sniff stickers. ~AB

“Can You Hear Me Now?” Guy, is Queer and Talks

by Accidental Bear

A frickin’ 9 year contract, that’s insane. I actually didn’t assume he was gay from the Verizon adds. I thought maybe he was just one of those sensitive, straight hipster types. Now that I know, I am curious what he has to say. He mentions that his contract made it impossible to report  homophobia. I’m dying to know where this homophobia occurred that he talks of. Inquiring minds want to know. Can YOU, hear me now?

Paul Marcarelli, the gay actor known for years as the Verizon “Test Man,” is finally free to talk, now that his restrictive nine-year contract with the company is nearing an end.

The Huffington Post reports on an interview Marcarelli gave to The Atlantic.

“His silence, he told The Atlantic, was more or less required as part of his contract with Verizon,” reports HuffPo. “Since the company has informed him that the curtain will soon fall on the ‘Test Man’ character, Marcarelli now feels comfortable speaking about the role.”

Man, 70, Stoned to Death for Homosexuality: Police

by Accidental Bear

Mental Illness + Ignorance is a deadly combination

Some time my mind tells me to to go to Taco Bell and get 42 tacos, but I’m stable enough to say no, to myself. Another story of small town ignorance, most likely adopted by someone with a low IQ. The result is tragic and sad to say not so shocking. More proof that the bible enables the ability of weak minded people to commit violence.

Appearing on HLN’s Issues With Jane Velez-Mitchell,Fred Phelps’s son Nate discussed his family’s heinous actions and detailed the horrific abuse he and his siblings were subjected to by their father.

Nate Phelps said his homophobic family, which often pickets the funerals of fallen soldiers because they claim military deaths are punishment for America’s tolerance of gays, has done both good and bad for LGBT people. Fred Phelps is “one of the best reasons that America has been forced to get off the fence and address the issue [of gay rights],” Nate told Velez-Mitchell. “But at the same time you can’t ignore the fact that he’s done a lot of damage. He’s hurt a lot of families, not only in the gay community, but the families of these soldiers.”

Revolutionary New Homophobia Immersion Therapy Involves Lowering Patient Into Tank Of Gays

by Accidental Bear

Sign me up. This sounds like fun! The description of room of gay men is HI-LARIOUS. I’m often fed strawberries by shirtless men.

BOSTON—During a widely publicized press conference at the Boston University School of Medicine Friday, researchers announced a breakthrough new technique that cures homophobia by immersing patients in a large glass tank overflowing with gays. “Rather than avoid one’s fear of homosexual men, we believe it’s crucial to face it head on,” behavioral psychologist Dr. Dolph Kleineman told reporters, explaining how homophobic subjects are hooked up to a harness and lowered into a room containing bare-chested men dancing suggestively to the latest club hits, kissing, and feeding one another strawberries. “So far the treatment has been successful, with early test subjects being able to go out into the real world and see a gay couple hold hands without making a bigoted remark.” When asked if there was a risk of subjects getting stuck in the tank of writhing men, Kleineman said the gays would be so oiled up that patients would have no trouble slipping in and out.
