1/ Ong Ye Kung: "The fact is they (the LGBTQ community) live in Singapore peacefully, no discrimination at work, housing (and) education."

This is worrying 'cos either the education minister doesn't know what "discrimination" means, or he doesn't know what facts are.
2/ @TODAYonline reported on his comments, reiterating the government stance that they'll "leave it to society to decide over time" when it comes to the issue of repealing 377A. todayonline.com/singapore/no-d…
3/ The most charitable interpretation is that the minister is unfortunately out of touch with the ground reality. There is constant discrimination against the #LGBT community in #Singapore.

Congrats To #Lgbt India

-Don’t forget the United States decriminalized Gay sex ONLY 15 years ago in 2003.

-Lawrence v. Texas

-#KavanaghHearing thinks Justice Rehnquist who dissented in this case (wanted to keep gay sex illegal) is a hero.
Lawrence explicitly overruled Bowers, holding that it had viewed the LIBERTY interest too narrowly. Court held that intimate consensual sexual conduct was part of the LIBERTY protected by substantive due process under the 14th Amendment.
Think about these cases every time #Kavanagh and Republicans say LIBERTY.

They want to overturn ALL #lgbt rights cases.

FACT: Suicide is the number one cause of death of all #Utah youth; this is not the case nationally. More alarming, the teen suicide rate in Utah has doubled since 2011. #LGBT #UTpol #LDS #Mormon #BYU
Another Fact: Teen suicide is lower when there is an #LGBTQ supportive environment. #Utah is notorious for its lack of support for and acceptance of the #LGBT community. #LDS #Mormon #UTpol #BYU
Relatedly, studies show that in areas where homosexuality is tolerated, mental health outcomes for #LGBTQ are the same as non-LGBTQ people. Elevated risk of suicide correlates w/ elevated risk of mental illness that is prevalent among LGBTs living in areas hostile to them.

No one who lived through the Bush2 admin, from the stolen 2000 election to the torture, war crimes, two wars we are STILL in, millions of maimed Americans, brutal attacks on women & #LGBT "misses" Bush.Stop saying this for cheap clicks just because you escaped being hurt by Bush.
Pretending the Bush/Cheney years were benign when literally 2 MILLION Americans have been wounded/maimed by the wars in #Afghanistan & #Iraq is #GOP disinformation.

Also, Bush began the #WarOnWomen.
Bush helped stack the #SCOTUS with far right judges. Bush attacked #LGBT folks.
"Trump makes me miss Bush" is a statement of extreme privilege. It means you weren't hurt by Bush's domestic policies that made some of us feel we might have to flee our own country.These glib takes dismiss damage done by #GOP prior to Trump and how GWB opened the door for Trump.

This headline is hilarious. Prick News are such a mess.
Josh Jackman, one of the many misogynists & anti-lesbian bigots working at Pink News, clearly believes female people who identify as trans either don't exist or are not worth considering when talking about 'trans people'.
This is why Josh & his colleagues at Pink News are really angry. They don't believe women/lesbians should be allowed to exclude men from anything.

Mak nyah boleh masuk tandas perempuan?

1. Sekarang ada orang marah, kita kena berlembut dengan golongan LGBT ni. Nanti mereka akan lari. Beginilah. Golongan LGBT ini ada dua jenis,

#inithreadaku
#retweet
#LGBT
#CegahLGBT
#LiberalLogic
a) Golongan LGBT yang TAHU dan SEDAR apa mereka buat tu salah, tetapi susah nak berubah sebab faktor keliling. Mereka tak pernah perjuangkan pun hak nak jadi LGBT.
Contohnya yang diliwat sejak kecil, lalu besar jadi gay. Atau sejak kecil dihiaskan dengan pakaian perempuan sedangkan dia lelaki, dah besar jadilah transgender.

Saya tak nak sebut faktor genetik. Sebab kesannya cuma 1/3 je kepada peribadi seseorang.

1. The agenda is obvious. This is just one of many examples of the sick, vile, disgusting push for normalization of pedophilia in our society.

@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK @BrightonSurvivorsNET “In the light of a highly disturbing increase of #transphobia locally & nationally…” IF everything anybody says or does is #transphobia, of course you can say it is rising. Any reputable statistics?
@SurvivorsnetBtn @RASASC_London @survivorstrust @Danvers07943910 @ObjectUK “…so the date @Womans_Place_UK event feels like a concerted effort to make #trans ppl, & particularly #transwomen, feel #intimidated and #invalidated” Is it the position of SN that the sensitivities of #transwomen mean that #democracy should be suspended any time they say so?

What keeps me up? Babies and toddlers and children being given heavy duty antipsychotic drugs without monitoring by licensed personnel. We all know they don’t have nurses caring for caged migrant babies.
Deaths are inevitable.
This is genocide by the US government.
When kids are drugged they don’t eat. When babies are drugged they don’t drink. When drugs are given by unlicensed personnel kids die. Our government is committing genocide. And they are planning to continue genocide on a massive scale. #babyjails
When kids are drugged they aren’t learning. When babies are drugged they aren’t developing. When antipsychotics are given en masse to a pediatric population some percentage of that population will react very badly and may even die. Our country is committing genocide.

Pulp is lowbrow and cheap, which is why it was able to skirt around the censorship laws of the 1950s and cover subjects that 'serious' novels had to hint at. And one taboo topic dominated pulp in the 50s: #lesbian love.

This is the story of the lesbian pulp explosion...
There were a few pre-war novels that treated lesbians as serious characters in relationships with other women, but mostly the topic was handled in circumspect code. However all that changed in 1950...
Women's Barracks by French author Tereska Torrès was published by Fawcett Gold Medal in 1950. Describing the lives of Free French Forces stationed in London in WWll it candidly discussed lesbian relationships and passions, and went on to sell over four million copies worldwide.

We knew they would come for us. They are coming for us. #lgbt #queerpol
Using the excuse of “religious freedom “ House Committee passes Amendment allowing adoption agencies to discriminate against #lgbt parents, single parents, divorced parents and couples of mixed faith. Theocratic fascist @gop strikes again.
Nine US states have passed #lgbt adoption discrimination laws, 5 laws passed in the last 2 years. #lgbt are under attack from right wing ideologues. #queerpol
