In their hateful quest to save straight people from the horrors of homosexual life, Rick Scarborough and Peter LaBarbera decided to take matters into their own hands and sue homosexuality.

Who is "Big Gay?" you might ask. We're not sure, obviously it includes organizations like Logo, folks like Anderson Cooper, and shows like ABC's Modern Family. Is Lady Gaga on their list? How about rainbows? Or IKEA? Bert & Ernie are surely on that list, but so are chairs, parades, hats, hybrid cars, and the Sun.

Also on today's #TWiBRadio, #TeamBlackness discussed the lasting effects of childhood, President Obama caught a diabetic, pregnant lady who fainted during his speech yesterday, and Rand Paul's Lying Liar Show ... For Liars.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    or as we affectionately know him, Porno Pete, really have jumped the shark this time around. I'm not sure how they'd propose to actually follow through on such a suit.

    In another era, not that long ago, the Hitler government imposed a fine on all of Germany's Jewish population for a whole host of alleged crimes. It's not that Rick and Pete have any chance of success in this of course, but despite the frivolousness of their venture, I can't help thinking of what they propose as something very much akin to what Hitler's government actually did: accuse some definable group of people of being a source of all things evil and attempt to obtain reparations from them all. It should not be overlooked here that the Jews of Nazi Germany were falsely accused of, among other things, collectively spreading disease. Scarborough and LaBarbera are predicating their "suit" on precisely the same sort of basis.

    That in itself is a scary notion and it's one we shouldn't countenance even as a joke.

    That term is "blood libel." It's an ugly term and represents a concept that is completely outside the bounds of acceptable discourse in the United States.

    is based on tobacco lawsuits of the 1990's and the argument is that tobacco and HIV are both harmful "products" and tobacco companies sold tobacco to the public and gays "gave" HIV to the world so gays should be held responsible.

    This inanity (insanity) is that it appears that these good folks would sue those with HIV for spreading the virus (though not only gays have HIV: In the African American community, females are especially at risk due to infection by heterosexual sex and IV drug use)  I guess these guys would also sue African Americans and IV drug users as well and maybe the whole continent of Africa since that is the apparent origination point.  (Even worse to these guys it appears is the fact it is an "African" disease as opposed to the good old fashioned STDs such as syphilis which are supposed to be European in origin)

    This is on a par with the "gay rings" which teh gays wear so they can infect heteros with HIV according to Pat Robertson

    Homosexuality itself.

    When Homosexuality hires a lawyer and replies to the Notice of Claim will they send their response with a pink cover sheet, or will they make do with the standard light blue?

    Inquiring minds want to know!
