UPDATE – 8-9-07 – I regret that the wording of my post implied that GLSEN or the GSANetwork may have been behind the gaystraightalliance.org website and the hateful messages there. I did not mention GLSEN in my post because I knew this was not their site. However, calling it “the Gay-Straight Alliance website” was confusing and I do apologize for this. I am investigating the situation and suggest readers review the comments on this post for some good information on the owners of this site. I continue to advocate an email to the site owner to register your views.
UPDATE – 8/9/07 – Lending some credibility to the hackery-theory of the gaystraightalliance.org theory, the message at the bottom of the page has changed slightly and now ends with this statement: “EVERY 2 MINUTES IN THE USA ANOTHER GLBT AMERICAN DIES AS A RESULT OF HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS.”
I have contacted the company who owns this site and several other leads to get a comment with no success.
Well, I wasn’t sure how else to title this. I do not like hyperbolic sounding posts or claims but what else can you make of this tag line from the Gay-Straight Alliance website?
WITHOUT GSA ACCESS, STUDENTS ARE FORCED TO SIMPLY KILL CLASSMATES WHO TAUNT & BULLY – SHOOTING, STABBING AND POISONING ARE THE COMMON FORMS OF RETRIBUTION. FAR TOO MANY GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS LIKE BULLYING CHILDREN TO THE POINT WHERE RETRIBUTION AGAINST CLASSMATES AND FACULTY IS ONLY OPTION TO REDRESS RELENTLESS HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS IN MANY REGIONS. SPECIOUSLY-NAMED “PRO-FAMILY” LEADERS ARE CHILD MOLESTERS WHO MAKE MONEY STIGMATIZING HOMOSEXUALITY TO SILENCE GAY VICTIMS.
“…forced to simply kill?” “…the only option?” “…child molesters?”
If you would like to write the Gay Straight Alliance and suggest a less volatile message, here is the address email@example.com.
Companion website gaylibrary.com has this love note:
WITHOUT EQUAL PROTECTION UNDER LAW, THE HEART OF DEMOCRACY, USA DEMOCRACY ENDED (DEAD IN 47 STATES & FEDERAL, RULE OF LAW ENDED WITH IT AND NO FORCE ON EARTH CAN RESTORE IT SO VISIT HOMES OF TOP HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATORS & THEIR BLOODLINES AND PUNISH THEM IN RETRIBUTION); GOVERNMENTS LIKE SINGAPORE SHOULD END PERSECUTION TO AVOID GENOCIDAL RETRIBUTION; NO REASON TO PRESERVE OIL INDUSTRY, BOTANICAL INDUSTRIES, OR ENVIRONMENT IN WORST REGIONS; GAY SKI WEEK SEPTEMBER 1-9, 2007 QUEENSTOWN, NEW ZEALAND.
I like how messages of violent retribution are coupled with an announcement for “gay ski week.”
