Aaaaaaa videos like that. I'm not the kind of person who cries, but every time I hear that clip of Ellen saying "When the message out there is so horrible that to be gay you can get killed for it, we need to change the message", it has me tearing up. Every. Damn. Time.

Not really. I've never really seen / be apart of that project. Not to say I don't care, just never actively participated.

On a side note, a university I'm looking at going to next year offers a course on "Gender, Sexuality and Diversity studies" which I'm considering majoring in. I'd have to decide if it's what I really want to do with my life but.

Oh my God you two, why is your font always so small! You make my eyes hurt!

and Jubilation that course sounds incredibly interesting, but yeah like you said you'd have to make very sure that that's what you'd want to do. While being gay probably gives you a lot of the qualities you'd need to dedicate your life to such a thing, the jobs that you would get from that in the end would probably be something in the line of social work, which can be very emotionally draining. You'd have to make sure you're up for it.

Well I've considering actually becoming a social worker, so it would be combining the two. The careers I could get are listed as: social and policy planning, community services work, public relations, politics, journalism, academic teaching and research, and equal opportunity areas.

Community services work, public relations and teaching all interest me so iunno, it's a possibility.

On a totally random note, here is a video of Minus18, an organisation in Australia for LGBTS teenagers / people under 21. My friend actually is the really blond guy in the video, the video itself is so brilliant.

So... Shining Raichu just told me in the IRC chat that I should be more active here. So, here I am!

Anyway, I'd like to share a link that shows just how ignorant some anti-gay people can be. And this ignorance can have very dangerous consequences. Just take a look for yourself.

Yeah, a lot of people who are over the top anti-gay, always seem to get caught with being gay though. I always feel whenever someone is trying to make something a taboo like being gay or watching porn, they always fall victim to it, as if they are guilty about doing it.

Also, small text for me is fine. If I have trouble seeing it, I quote the message, and read it then.

@Jubilation I studied four (I think?) units of gender studies at college. I /adore/ it.
My monitor is 1366x768... I can't even tell where the spaces are in your font most of the time. lol

Yeah, mine is 1680x1050 and I can barely read it without shoving my face into the laptop and squinting

Also, LMAO at that link. The story itself is horrible, but the picture of the homophobe is so hilarious that I really cannot take him seriously. Surely people can see through his nonsense when he's looking like that. But it just goes to show, all it takes is one guy with a monkey fetish to ruin it for everybody!

Well, Yaoi and Yuri is normally the "extreams" of Anime Gay and Lesbian pariings. There is a term for stuff that doesn't get farther than a blush and a kiss on the cheek. I can't think of the term though,
You're thinking of hentai.
*blinks*
Hey, I have an anime obesessed sister, don't blame me. xD
Ever seen Axis Powers Hetalia? That's a yaoi, just not yaoi-hentai.

The guy in that link . . . I'm sorry, just . . . just no. xD

@Razor Leaf's video - That . . . was amazing. :3

No, Yaoi and Yuri are the extremes, the fluff and stuff is Shonen Ai for boys and Shoujo Ai for girls I believe.

Yeah, that's correct. I think more people know what Yuri and Yaoi mean though, so they end up using it to describe shounen and shoujo ai as well.

No, Yuri and Yaoi is associated with hentai, but it is the more common tag for PG stuff as well. Usagi already said the correct terms

Yeah, I've seen Hetalia. Sweden x Finland is one of the pairings I'm hoping to get added to the list. I support that pairing the most as I role played with that pairing before with one of my ex's.
Granted Sweden's facial features in the anime (especially the smaller eyes) is kind of a turn off, but I still like the pairing :3

I really do dislike that term (trap). Though, to be technical, a reverse-trap would be a part~
I laughed. I hope someone else did, too.

On the issue of homosexual media from Japan, I always preferred the terms Boys Love (BL) and Girls Love (GL). They're nice and simple and cover everything, but I prefer umbrella terms most of the time anyway.

Regarding that politician from Tennessee, I think it's dangerous what he's saying. He's equating LGBT people with AIDS and basically slandering both queer people and people with AIDS. Maybe I'm just used to ant-gay talk and it doesn't rile me as much, but the way he's not-so-subtly talking about AIDS as "the gay disease" with the implication that gay=bad so AIDS=gaybad makes me really angry.

^Here is a good video on this guy
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmPWD4Ts05I&list=UUjNxszyFPasDdRoD9J6X
Its made by TheAmazingAtheist, and there is probably a few swear words, so fair warning.

People, especially people in power who hate a group of people so openly, and are still in office. Shouldn't be in office.

the weirdest thing about the term Yuri is that it's also a name. in Tales of Vesperia for example, Yuri is a swordsman who is also good with his fists. I've seen so many dirty puns on that subject.

^I'm just taking a guess here, as I know nothing about the Japanese Language.

But it might just translate two things to 'Yuri', that or it has another meaning to the word.

I'd like to join, please. I'm bisexual, and this seems like a nice social group

Also, iirc, yuri translates to "lily".

Allright, so Yuri does have a double meaning

Lilly and Lesbians

I wonder if it goes the same for Yaoi

Don't correct me when I'm trying to correct someone. There's just too much correction.
xD Well then, a lot of things seem to have been misusing these words, lol.
Yuri as a name doesn't really make me think of that, because . . . well, If anything I'ma be reading yaoi, not yuri. lol

@Scarf - Nope, I didn't laugh. I think the . . . joke flew right over my head. I'm actually not completely sure I'm grasping it one hundred percent. I'm grasping it, just not enough to make me laugh. That's sad, I like laughing ;~;

@TwiDragon - Russia for the win, no? (Say no and I shall sick Russia AND Belarus on you. >:C)

/can't think of anything more productive to say.
