According to Facebook, a picture of two men kissing is ‘graphic or sexually suggestive content’ and ‘abusive material’. Said picture was removed.
So much what the fuck.
Read more at Dangerous Minds here.
And while I’m here, one of the comments on the article should also get a mention:
I think Facebook did the right thing. There are plenty of places on the internet where you can go to see sexual perversions. If Facebook doesn’t want to be one of them, it only makes me like Facebook more.’
Lovely. Just lovely.
There are a number of other killers, but I had to stop at one before I exploded.

In 1989 when I was ordained as a minister to serve a small church in North Carolina, homosexuality was an invisible issue. Gay rights were barely on the radar of mainstream churches. The idea of an openly gay pastor was beyond the pale. I knew there were “gay churches,” of course, but I did not believe one could be a practicing homosexual and a Christian. The Bible was straightforward on this issue. It all seemed incredibly obvious to me…
With distance, I could see the mean-spirited nature of the anti-gay movement, and the naked way large Christian organizations used the “gay threat” to raise money. Free from the constraints of a congregation, I could spend more time actually looking at the biblical texts that deal with homosexuality, and I was surprised to find they were not as clear as I had supposed they were. At this point, I have done a 180 on the topic. And I believe it’s a change for the good.

Donald Trump. What a fucking charmer. His thoughts on same-sex marriage are as follows:
‘I’m against it. I just don’t feel good about it, I don’t feel right about it. I’m against it.’
What the everloving fuck? If you’re going to play the No Gay Marriage hand, at least have some cards at the ready. (My all time favourites being the ‘We Must Uphold Tradition’ card, or the ‘But the Bible Says…’ card.) If you’re going to be an asshole, at least be an asshole with established opinions. They can be ignorant and misinformed opinions, but it’s better than saying something doesn’t make you FEEL GOOD.
What. The. Fuck.
And this guy is a potential 2012 Republican presidential candidate, by the way.
Other fabulous quotes from this bitch are:
‘I say that we have other problems in this country. And I don’t think a president should be elected on gay marriage or not gay marriage, because we have some very big problems.’
First it doesn’t make him ‘feel good’, now it’s not big enough. You’re not directing a fucking porno here, mate. Stop being such a massive douche.
And for the icing on the cake, when asked whether medical and civil benefits should extend to gay couples, he said he hadn’t developed a ‘fully formed’ opinion, but, ‘As of this moment, I would say no and no.’
Brother, none of your opinions are ‘fully formed.’ Do some fucking research and stop fluffing around big issues like marriage equality with stupid-ass phrases like ‘I don’t feel right about it.’ Oh wait, that’s right, same-sex marriage isn’t a ‘big’ issue to you, is it? My bad.
