the lighter side
After 10 years of pushing the Alberta Health Ministry to stop defining homosexuality as a mental disorder, Wells launched a human rights complaint on Dec. 15. A week later, the province changed its health code. Next up; remove the definition of Restless Leg Syndrome as Satanic possession.
The Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association donated $1,000 to support anti-bullying initiatives. President James Ryan told the Toronto Sun “Certainly the Catholic Church is against bullying.” Did Ratzinger get that memo?
After surviving years of bullying in B.C.’s school system, Kelly came out determined to help kids trapped in the same situation. She created the Facebook group and website LEZ Help. Here’s a big thumbs up for individual initiative!
When the rabid right’s Littlest Hobo barks, you know he sniffs dangerous lefties lurking in the bush. In his slobbery blog, Levant described Rob Wells as “The Fred Phelps of the gay lobby.” Translation: Wells swats bigots on the snout when they get too “homo-hatey.” Bad doggie!
In his defence of the two radio hosts who disparaged Johnny Weir during the Vancouver Olympics, Quebec DJ Dupont repeate dly called Weir a fag and queer. The Canada Broadcast Standards Council ruled that Dupont’s comments were “scornful, derisive and denigrating” and ordered their decision be read on air. Uh-oh! Is it safe to use multisyllabic words when Dupont’s fans are driving?
Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s SuperHarper’s $6 million “Victims Matter” media campaign. The irony; Harper spent only $4.9 million on victim assistance. That’s why B.C. can’t add one gay bashing victim support worker to its 160 victim service programs, despite B.C. being a Canadian “hate crime capital.” Who do you have to sleep with around here to get some Kryptonite?
