Oh, This Is Too Good! Social Conservatives Declaring War On The Word "Gay!"

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayPolitikLGBT

It never ceases to amaze us how extensively, and with the use of what can be confused to be 'logic,' that people can find ways to justify their bigotry.

Check out this pretty HOriffic clip from The Awakening conference for social conservatives this past weekend, which took place at Liberty University in the ironically-named Lynchburg, VA, during which panelists try to reject the term 'gay' and attempt to hide their deep-rooted, dispecable homaphobia in some nicely-worded, intelligent sounding ring-wing bullshiz that ultimately ends up making no sense (above).

For example, the Young Conservatives of California's Ryan Sorba claims:

"You're not an abstract consciousness inhabiting some impersonal body."

Really? Because what he's describing sounds pretty much like what most Christians would consider a soul! Didn't realize we weren't supposed to have those!

Way to go, buddy!

Perhaps it's about time you try and re-tool your argument to actually make sense, instead of trying to just make it sound as though it's intelligent, and therefore, logical?

Just saying!

    That's GAY!

    Lynchburg Virginia is actually named after a Quaker–peaceloving and kind. Most inhabitants view the school on the hill as an embarrassment.

    I can't believe people feel so strongly about this sort of thing.. what a waste of a life if your sole mission is to make sure people of the same sex don't have sex with each other.. it's not even something you can remotely control and it's scary that some people want to..

  5. 5

    I agree with you, but calm down. You shouldn’t even give these people attention they are not worth your time or your anger.

  6. 6

    How the hell is this celebrity gossip!!!??? How bout make a Pro Gay site so I don't have to scroll threw all these stupid posts. Figure your shit out Perez.

  7. 7

    I come to this site for "celebrity juice….not from concentrate" as you advertise on your header. While my political beliefs sometimes differ from yours, this is not the forum. If I wanted political information, I'd visit a political site. I've tried to skip past the entries but enough is enough. I'm going to get my celebrity gossip from other websites that stay truer to their site content. Good luck with your site but please know that I'm not the only person who has been put off by your political commentary and related entries. Remember you're a celebrity gossip site. If you want to venture into political debates, consider launching another site, similiar to the ones you've done for fashion and pet-oriented. With Respect…..Winsletfan.

    Now u guys feel being called Gay is insensitive. whats next, Homosexuals? its you people that are insentitive. better u accept the gay word bcos thats the best u gonna get. i bet u, the next one might be far worse.

  11. 11

    wow… stupidest blog ever. while i don't agree with homophobia at all, it's stupid the way you try to come off as logical, perez. you just words into the dudes mouth about what the definition of a soul is. please cite a reference where the same speaker describes a soul with the same words and then i'll believe this guy is "swing the sword both ways".

    yes, it's dumb for there to be such a repression of homosexuality by any groups, but, c'mon, perez, really? you gotta come up with better arguments.

  12. 12

    Perez, I'm sick of you hating on conservatives like they all feel this way. I'm a republican who is all for gay rights, and it feels really terrible to be linked up with these types of hateful people. And nice, classy tag of "right wing bullshit". Is that tolerant of other people? You're only tolerant to things when it directly affects you.
    STICK TO HOLLYWOOD GOSSIP, not random political events at a small Virginia college.

    Re: mac14 – I can't remember who said it, but it was at an awards show. Simply put, if straight people want gay people to stop having sex, then we should let them get married. HA!.

  14. 14

    What ignorance and hate. It's sad that so many live their lives in fear of something "different". I'd never want to live in such small little world surrounded by small little minded people.

  15. 15

    "dispecable homaphobia ", ring-wing… you betcha.

  16. 16

    If bigotry were not evident in this earth plane or dimension we would probably have to all go somewhere else. It's our karma to live with it. My suggestion is to think LOVE for all humans and allow that consciousness to fill and surround everywhere.

  17. 17

    You can tell the guy really likes to suck cock

  18. 18

    I wonder when gays are going to realize they were born with bad corrupt genetics and they are basically natures "fuck up".

    THEY SHOULD be lucky our leaders are a bunch of pansies and that they are not eradicated like they should be. Maybe one day…

  19. 19

    I don't like the word GAY. What's wrong with being called homosexual and lesbian ? I say political correctness has gone too far with that stupid word, I despise it. I'm not homophobic, no way. I call a cat a cat, a homo a homo, a lesbo a lesbo, that's it, that's all.

  20. 20

    I think you need to look up the definition of 'ironically' please, because the way you used it isn't even close to correct.

  21. 21

    Re: dontcarewatuthink – You should really listen and know what your talking about before you comment. This has nothing to do with gays not liking being called gay. They're talking about eliminating the use of the word "gay" so that homosexuals won't be able to identify themselves as such. Its very random and I believe its a stupid argument. I had to reply to you because this is not about gays not liking being called "gay"….at all!

    Re: NookiesWA – Really?!?! If this world only consisted of fucked up ignorant small minded dipshits like you I would be a terrorist. What ever happened to live and let live??? Who wants to be in a world with one track minded people. Diversity brings color to this world, and although all you bring is darkness I suppose I can live with that too. Stop being so angry and hating so much…it gives you wrinkles….

  23. 23

    Re: LazaroSi3333 – OMG!!!! You people dont listen!!!! Listen and know what your commenting on before you post!!!! It has nothing to do with homos not liking being called "gay"!

  24. 24

    That in itself was pretty GAY!!!

  25. 25

    Ryan Sorba is a complete moron. seriously the guy is a major megalomaniac. you know you have to be really obnoxious to be booed off the stage at CPAC.

  26. 26

    for all you fools who think that homosexuals hijacked the word "gay" it has been around long before most of you were even alive.
    The term's use as a reference to homosexuality may date as early as the late 19th century, but its use gradually increased in the 20th century. In modern English, gay has come to be used as an adjective, and occasionally as a noun, referring to the people, especially to men, and the practices and cultures associated with homosexuality. By the end of the 20th century, the word gay was recommended by major style guides to describe people attracted to members of the same sex. At about the same time, a new, pejorative use became prevalent in some parts of the world. In the Anglosphere, this connotation, among younger speakers, has a derisive meaning equivalent to rubbish or stupid (as in "That's so gay."). In this use, the word does not mean "homosexual", so it can be used, for example, to refer to an inanimate object or abstract concept of which one disapproves. This usage can also refer to weakness or unmanliness. When used in this way, the extent to which it still retains connotations of homosexuality has been debated.[4][5]

    Nothing that guy said made an ounce of sense. Maybe he should start treating human beings with respect instead of listening to the world's best selling work of fiction.

    He's fighting his inner homosexual — publicly. Advice to this fella: get therapy for yourself and leave the rest of us alone.

    Gay rights site now?

    For someone who's had his panties in a bunch, bashing the Catholic Church along with other Christian Churches, I wasn't sure if you still believed that human beings had souls. Just checking.

    I agree with you Perez, and think this guys a douche BUT (there's always a "but" with you) what's the news here? Here's a man, giving his (however stupid) OPINION, in a peaceful, controlled manor, in a peaceful, controlled setting, for adults who agree with his opinion & willingly came to see him. No yelling, violence or calling for violence. He hasn't crashed a conference for people with opposing views. Someone who doesn't agree with you isn't news Perez, let along celebrity gossip. He may be offending some people, but that's life… there is someone out there offended by EVERY single thing imaginable.. does that mean we shouldn't EVER have opinions? All I'm saying is, this post makes YOU seem ignorant, not him. The way you don't allow other people to have an opinion unless it's your own is downright childish. What he's saying is foolish and bullshit, and I 100% back you in spreading awareness on HATE and people spreading HATE or calling for HATE in any way BUT, you just posted a video of a man stating his opinion in a calm manner to (what looks like) a small group of adults who agree with him? "Man Has Opinion, tonight at 6." Not news Perez, not news. Grow up. If you're gonna veer away from celebrity gossip with this kind of stuff, make it be something SERIOUS

  34. 34

    … Because unfortunately, there ARE lots of hate crimes & spreading of hate towards the LGBT community. By posting shit like this, you're, in my OPINION, downgrading the severity of the situation, ESPECIALLY in the eyes of people like this (conserv. extremists). You're right, sadly, he DID give an "intelligent," calm, thought out argument… give one back! Prove him wrong. Debate. Open the eyes of those who can't see. This whining does nothing! Any person who agreed with this man would see this post and think, "F*g nothing to say in return! Just bitches!" not think, "Wow he seems really smart for one of 'those people'" It's sick, but true. Change minds, however slowly. Don't just complain that someone is disagreeing with you. There's NOTHING more ignorant than that. If you want to give your two cents every time someone disagrees with you, make AbrahamHilton.com that's solely your view on politics. I'm serious. Cause this is just ridiculous. And I'm ON YOUR SIDE! Stop setting back the gay community while pretending you're their hero and jacking off your ego. I'm SO sick of it.

    That felt good.

    Re: hocus pocus – FUCKING THANK YOU!!! THANK. YOU.

    I couldn’t of said it any better it’s like you read my mind. I’m on Perez’s side too but for God’s FUCKING sake he is not doing anything GOOD for his cause, only making things worse. thank you… *applause*applause*applause*

  37. 37

    Re: hocus pocus – 100% agree with everything you said! We live in a country where people have the right to express and defend their opinions, no matter how ridiculous and ancient they may be. It is hard enough to find an unbiased news station on tv, let alone having to come on this site for CELEBRITY GOSSIP, and have to deal with his intolerance of other people's opinions. While I don't necessarily agree with anything said in the video, I accept that they have their opinions and have done NOTHING WRONG by expressing them in a calm fashion in the appropriate setting. PLEASE!, Perez, please. Stick to what brings people to your site…not political bashing…CELEBRITY GOSSIP!

    Re: hocus pocus – I agree to a certain extent but honestly I'm so tired of tolerating stupid peoples opinions.. they are like talking to a fucking wall they never concede or even listen to the other side of an argument.. Fuck stupid people and they're dangerous opinions.. they can be entitled to them sure but I think it's about time that we start pointing out how dumb their opinions are and stop tip-toeing around it.. lets be honest they're what's wrong with the world… but I do agree perez needs to chill out

  39. 39

    You can't expect logic from these people Perez. They are that mind -boggling combination of super-crazy and really stupid.

    Stuff the word gay full of black crude, and they'll actually deploy tomorrow.

    Really?? That is the most ignorant garbage coming out of that guys mouth.

    You'll get a kick out of this. My Mom and her friend were at a party together. One of the waiters at the party asked my Mom and her friend if "they were gay?"
    My Mom's friend who was having a great time said, "yes we are." She meant in the term she was happy and gay aka having a good time. Totally clueless woman. She and my Mom were both very straight.
    I loathe when I hear people saying something they don't like, "is gay." I hear people from the last two generations saying that. kids hear their parents saying that and it snowballs.
    I put a friend on blast, she bought a car that didn't have seat warmers. Whenever she doesn't have something she would like, she tries to make herself feel better by saying she doesn't like it. So she said "car seat warmers were gay." I asked, what that meant?" Doesn't she know the correct definition of gay?" Read the dictionary bitch and stop saying that before I slap your mouth.
