So when Justin Bieber talks about how abortion is evil and pregnancy from rape happens for a reason, people say, “he’s only 16, he doesn’t know any better!” And when Liam Payne defends the ‘family values’ of a virulently racist, homophobic family, then we get, “he’s only 20, guys! He can’t possibly know everything yet!” So let me ask you, at what point will all these privileged white guys actually be expected to take responsibility for their actions?
FOUL-mouthed chef Gordon Ramsay has shocked a public audience by vilifying high profile Australian journalist Tracy Grimshaw in an obscene, sexist rant.
The putrid tirade, which included references to Grimshaw’s looks, sexuality and depictions of her as a pig, shocked audiences who went to see the celebrity chef at the Good Food and Wine Show in Melbourne.
Ramsay told an audience of several thousand people that Grimshaw was “a lesbian”, the Sunday Herald Sun reports.
When the crowd reacted with gasps, he said: “What? I’m not saying she’s a …”
The phrase that Ramsay used was a highly derogatory term often used to describe lesbians.
Ramsay also showed a picture of a woman - who appeared to be naked - on her hands and knees with the features of a pig and multiple breasts.
"That’s Tracy Grimshaw," he told the audience. “I had an interview with her yesterday - holy crap.
"She needs to see Simon Cowell’s Botox doctor."
Ramsay - who later dismissed the comments as a joke - went on with more innuendos about Grimshaw’s sexual preference and activities.

Okay, I’m going to tag this one because I’m more than a little annoyed that some of you don’t seem to get it.
This is going to be prefaced that I don’t think Tyler P. is homophobic/heterosexist even a little.
This, however isn’t because he
You can be homophobic and do all of these things and I should know because my family is chock-full of cis male homophobes who can act as queer as you can get without sucking cock and then in the next sentence casually joke about shipping queers off to an island so they’re not around all the straight people.
Bless this tweet.
Homophobic much, Ludwig?
Hey, ya! I’ll take my religiously bigoted homophobia call-outs with a side of slut-shaming, please. That sounds just perfect! /sarcasm
oh man, just imagine! someone telling me i don’t count as queer (because i only seek relationships with people of the opposite sex)!
and here i was thinking being verbally and physically harassed was bad. that really puts my suffering in perspective, doesn’t it?
Oh god reading the reblogs on this is making me so fucking angry. Queer is not an identity you dumb fucks it is a homophobic slur. People who id as queer are not ~outside the norm~ there is nothing abnormal about being gay and it’s really fucking homophobic to say so. If you want to be “radically progressive” (gag) then call yourself ~radikewl~, not queer.
Fuck white man academia. It’s impossible to reclaim a slur that’s been distorted into such a controlling, othering ball and chain.
Anything lgbt people choose to ID themselves can be used against them if someone so wants to. So if a person wishes to be called queer or feels like queer fits them better than any of the other words that fit their identify, who are you to police that?
This is spectacular.
what’s wrong with curtains though
fuck you albert I bet your house has curtains too
What I don’t get is how someone like Albert can type out his statement, look it over, smile to himself and say, “yeah, now that’s the message I want to put out there to represent me!” I know a metric shit-ton of people do it every day, but I don’t fucking get it.
“There’s one big fact that’s not backed up. There is no proof that there’s ever anything like a gay, lesbian or bisexual or transgendered child, or teen or human. One of the other things you’re gonna see as I mentioned is a big campaign GLSEN’s gonna roll out this year calling for ‘respect,’ respect! Not just for people, but for homosexual lifestyle. The PR campaign to hold up gay as a good thing: the lifestyle, not the person, because there are no such humans.”
Is this like The Sixth Sense? Where people tell her they see gay people, she simply can’t understand what they’re talking about, and in the end she figures out she’s been gay all along?
I really just can’t. My brother goes “…Maybe she’s just kidding?”
Audre Lorde, “Age, Race and Sex: Women Redefining Difference” (via uprightcitizens)
Yeah I don’t need to educate you, ok.
Last week, Malaysia rounded up 66 teenage male students who were deemed effeminate and sent them to a government sponsored camp because it was feared they “could end up gay or transsexual”. Despite public outcry, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak has not assured that such camps will never happen again.
We have less than a week to let Malaysia know the world is watching: we will deliver the petition next week at the ASEAN summit, where Prime Minister Razak will be in the international spotlight.
As somebody who is half Malaysian and queer this issue is obviously very important to me.
Last year my cousin told me he was gay. He’ll have to live his life as a heterosexual in fear that he’ll be discovered because he has no choice. Being gay is still illegal in Malaysia. If we can’t reverse that right now, the least we can do is prevent horrific things like this happening.

this is so sad.

STILL ONLY 18 NOTES
Until all of us are free, none of us are.
What in the actual fuck?
Funny, that’s how I feel every time I try to read a Bret Easton Ellis novel.
That’s how you feel? When I read him I usually feel like I accidentally dried my face with a wipe up rag of jizz, santorum, errant coke dust, expensive manly pomades and tears of masculine insecurity. And maybe some blood from “fun” knife play, which I’m sure the girl loved. And bad writing.
…Oh my GOD.
WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT. YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH. OR LAFAYETTE WILL SERVE YOU AN AIDS BURGER YOU DUMBASS.
(I have no idea who this guy is, but I hate him and now I’m really angry)
He wrote American Psycho. Yeah. Nothing offensive about that book at all.
What the everyloving fuck. I hate this guy and am glad I never read any of his probably shit novels.
holy fucking shit. you better reblog.
Please take a second to reblog to spread the word.
At the University of North Carolina, a gay student was attacked and branded in a hate-motivated attack. As the attacker branded him, he said to him, “Here is a taste of hell.”
Get outraged! Think of your LGBT friends, family, and classmates and get the word out. The campus officials waited two days to alert the community, this kind of violence can’t be swept under the rug.
WHY DOES THIS NOT HAVE MORE NOTES. GOD FUCKING DAMMIT PEOPLE. GET THIS OUT.
Okay, Katy Perry. Thousand of people hate you right now.
I FUCKING TOLD YOU! I TOLD EVERYONE THAT SHE IS HOMOPHOBIC. NOW LOOK!
Now I have more reason to dislike this shit of a singer.
GOD DAMN IT! I NEVER FUCKING LIKED HER! I tried to for Russell but fuck!
Yet another reason to punch Katy Perry in the face. That’s like…a thousand now? (WTF is up with this, particularly after that video for ‘Firework’, which seemed to have a pro-gay message?)
she done lost her mutha fuckin’ mind!
She might be joking or what the fuck ever but her language is still shit. A GAY. AS OPPOSED TO A STRAIGHT PERSON.
