  1. The passing of Proposition 8 and the racist rhetoric being spewed in California has most certainly put a damper on Obama’s victory. As a queer woman of color, I feel very conflicted by the blame placed squarely on the shoulders of the black community. While I acknowledge the fact that African Americans disproportionately voted for the amendment, the anger and rage directed at the community (INCLUDING Queer POC) by elitist gay media is absolutely sickening.

    I feel like I can’t win….

  2. what is this? the last pic is of that neo-nazi guy who IS African American with a QUEER mother…he is crazy… where did this come from?

    I say, heh, why not, let’s love each other!!!!

  3. You can’t be serious..
    i cant believe somebody is so sick.
    People fall in love, if it’s a girl, or a boy, old or young, white or black.
    and nobody should interfere. im f’ing 15 years old and even i understand that love (shouldnt/has) no limits, it sickens me to know that people like him on the last photo exists..
