This post was first published on Queereka. Yet again RuPaul’s questionable usage of transphobic slurs on his show has angered the online trans* community. Trans* public figures Calpernia Addams and Andrea James have not as much defended RuPaul as they have personally attacked one of the other trans* activists speaking out. I used to like Calpernia Addams, even […]

This is an interesting video with an interesting twist. It’s by one of the few good Christian preachers I suppose. At least he’s a one of the good guys on this issue. But I think it also goes to show how conservatives have always been holding back progress in every area of society, including human rights.

So, what does an old, white, homophobic, misogynistic, conservative asshole look like? Well, take a look at this guy. This goof is called Pat Robertson. He’s a televangelist.
