It’s funny how conservatives are always going on about the “gay agenda,” when it’s the straight people that have an agenda. Seriously. The straight agenda starts brainwashing kids from birth, putting boy-babies in blue clothes and girl-babies in pink clothes, deciding which toys they get to play with and which school subjects they “ought” to be good at, and backing that up with millions of dollars worth of advertising as the children grow up, reinforced by constant brainwashing by their own families.
Not to mention unfair and uneven media representation, showing unrealistically uniform heterosexual casts and hardly any homosexual/bisexual/trans/queer/ace/pan protagonists, discouraging young adults from exploring their queerness because it clearly isn’t the done thing. In fact, it’s a horrible sin, because most religious leaders from multiple religions are anti-queer, and are happy to fill the airwaves with queerphobic hate. The same thing goes for most political leaders and “pillars” of the community.
The straight agenda makes it acceptable for someone to joke about another person’s baby daughter by saying: “Oh, she’s a pretty one! You’re gonna have to fight the boys off with a stick once she’s in her teens!” As if that’s okay and not sexualizing a child before it can even talk, but if that same girl becomes an adult and tries coming out as a bisexual at the age of eighteen, she’s way too young to understand her own sexuality and must have been “corrupted” or “misled”.
A twelve-year-old boy and a girl are called “cute” when they hold hands, but if two boys do the same, they’re told they’re being “too gay”. A man who forces his attentions on a woman is condemned less than a gay man who only wants to marry his loving, committed life-partner. In fact, the assaulter is often lauded for being “manly” and is considered to be following his “natural” heterosexual urges, whereas the gay couple is considered “freakish” and “undermining moral and cultural values”.
In many cities, a lesbian couple can’t kiss on the street without being insulted, harassed or treated as though their relationship is pornographic entertainment for the titillation of straight men, but the same straight men can verbally or physically abuse their wives in public without anyone saying a word.
In many schools, a boy can bully and beat another boy without teachers speaking out against his bullying, but a boy can’t take another boy to the prom without teachers telling him it’s not allowed.
A heterosexual rape scene with a man raping a woman sparks less controversy among moviegoing audiences than a consensual homosexual kiss between men. Because obviously, the objectification and brutalization of women is more normal and tolerable than “twisted fags” daring to kiss each other consensually.
A straight male mass-shooter who uses the excuse of having been turned down by women as a reason to kill other people is given more sympathetic media coverage than an innocent trans woman who is the victim of a violent hate crime.
And it’s the gay agenda that’s doing damage to society? Really? Who exactly has the agenda, here? The straight agenda does its best to convince queer people that they’re unnatural, sinful, shameful, broken, dangerous, doomed or just downright undeserving of life, let alone basic rights. The straight agenda has most major media organizations, religious establishments and politicians backing them up and helping them spread their message.
And what does the so-called “gay agenda” have? People that want to get married? Wow. That’s so damaging to society.
-And I’m Emily.
We make “funny videos” on the Internet.
-But soon, we might not be able to.
…net neutrality is in jeopardy. Net Neutrality is the principle that says ISPs can’t discriminate between different types of traffic.
That means that…
…whether you’re a bedroom music producer, a couple on an amateur porn site, or just someone with a start up idea - you get access to the same users as Netflix, Facebook or Amazon. On the Internet, anyone can succeed.
…America’s ISPs wanna set up a pay-for-play system where rich companies pay extra to get to those users first.
If this happens…
…instead of a wonderful playground if innovation that it is now, the Internet will become like cable TV where you can only get stuff that’s been pre-approved by a bunch of old rich guys.
Ten years from now…
…your Internet bill could be a bigger “fustercluck” than your cable bill.
Now, you might be thinking…
…isn’t the government supposed to protect me from fragrant doucheholery like this?
…the former chairman of the FCC (government agency that’s SUPPOSED to protect you) is now the cable industry’s head lobbyist. And another former cable industry lobbyist is now the CURRENT head of the FCC.
…we can’t trust the FCC to make the right decision on their own. That’s why WE need to protect the Internet we love. The chaotic, AWESOME, often quite weird, place where literally everyone’s voice can be heard.
In a few months…
…the FCC will approve this festering soal of proposal unless we speak up. The Internet is one of the few places where human voices speak louder than money. So while that’s still the case, let’s use those voices. Go to DEARFCC.ORG and tell them to protect Net Neutrality. Thanks for doing your part to protect the Internet.

guys net neutrality is so important
since it just got repealed, cable companies now can charge extra for speed for site hosts, which means sites like netflix, youtube or really any site in the world have to pay extra in order to have the maximum speeds for customers
- small companies that might be doing rly great shit won’t be able to handle a lot of customers bc it might be too expensive to pay for higher speeds
- big sites like tumblr/twitter/facebook are going to have to pay extra money so you can get your content as fast as possible, and guess who’s going to have to bear that extra cost (hint: us)
- cable companies already have a monopoly over cable/telephone networks (there’s only like 3 major ones and comcast makes up for more than 50% of america’s cable rn, not good) but now they’re going to control internet speeds too, which means they can do whatever they want to the speeds of your favorite sites and you can’t even switch out since they have no competition
- if they don’t like the site for a political reason, they can increase prices to however high they want, therefore slowing the site down by so much that they can’t function anymore
- they say they’re making an “internet fast lane” but really what it means is that most sites (unless they got the $$$) are going to be on the slow lane by default
so please, sign this petition to let the government know you’re fucking pissed about this
