From Top To Bottom Blog, Named Izzoiz Blog Of The Month!


FROM TOP TO BOTTOM AWARD OF EXCELLENCE FOR MAY

Congratulations to
I have been following this blog for a while and had it all lined up already to name it BLOG OF EXCELLENCE AWARD. There are many fine blogs out there and then there are a number of meaningless, prurient and banal blogs that do not deserve even an occasional visit.
What makes IZZOIZ unique and deserving is that they champion gay rights and actively promote information and news that are of concern to the LGBT community.
Of course, they have the obligatory beef cake, semi-nude beauties but that is the icing on the cake. What mattered to me most was the substance and the depth of the blogger's endeavor. I went back further and deeper into past posts and found a uniformity and in keeping with the overall purpose and theme…that our lives are important and our rights undeniable.
So, for these and many other reasons we at From Top to Bottom award IZZOIZ the BLOG OF EXCELLENCE AWARD for the month of May.
I love it!!! OMG!!! R, thank you SO MUCH!!!! That is so kind and awesome. I started the blog because i was sick and tired of being sick and tired of hearing these anti-gay this and that republicans/conservatives spewing their hate. But it all came to a head during Prop 8 for me. I had reached a point beyond disgust. I have no tolerance for others INntolerance.

I also like to bring some fun to the site also. I have deep gratitude to you for your support and every so poignant and funny comments. thank you again, i cant tell you how much i truly appreciate it!

all my love

Glenn Beck: glee Is a "Nightmare" has "No Values"...


Glenn Beck has called Glee a "horror show".

On a recent episode of his Fox news show, the TV host said that the series "stands out and stands against almost every value that I have".

"I've watched it in stunned horror combined with a sense of admiring awe," Beck said about the musical comedy.

He added: "It is a brilliant, brilliant show. Very well done. But it is a horror show."

Beck also referred to Glee as "a nightmare" and said that all of the characters on the show are "sleeping with everybody else" and that the show has no values and promotes "self-gratification".

Um, "self gratification" that is all Beck is about. He promotes his own self gratification everyday. But thank god not for much longer. He also tries with all his drama to make a point about one of his staffers mother's throwing out the TV when she found her kids watching it instead of doing homework. Beck believes this is the way to go. Interesting coming from a person whose career was made by whoring himself through the medium he believes should be "thrown" out. And as far as the values part goes, if furthering hate, bigotry and trying to promote a living style from 50 years ago when we did not have the freedoms we have today, I will keep his version of "no values" and "self-gratification" any day....

School Expels Teen For Being Gay...

A 15 yr old high school student was expelled from a Christian school for being gay. But here is the most outrageous part, they found out by snooping on her Facebook page. Ok, schools should not be allowed to go on to students Facebook pages, unless the student is posing or in imminent danger. That is just ridiculous. People lock you Facebook pages so that only you and your friends can see them....

High School student arrested, charged For Video Taping Male Classmates In Naked In Locker Room...


St. Louis, MO (KSDK) - An 18-year-old Ritenour High School student is accused of shooting cell phone video of naked or near-naked classmates.

Dalton Heinle, a senior and member of the high school swim team, is charged with invasion of privacy of multiple individuals.

Police say a classmate who caught Heinle taking video of him turned Heinle into school officials.

So far, police say there are seven videos, mostly taken in locker rooms or bathrooms; all without the subjects' permission. They add there could be additional charges against Heinle, because there are additional videos that are still being investigated.

Update: Henile's father has been arrested for tampering with evidence...

The father of an 18-year-old Ritenour High School student accused of shooting cell phone video of naked or near-naked classmates has also been charged.

According to Captain Scott Robinson, spokesman for the Breckenridge Hills Police Department, the Granite City Police Department contacted them on April 27 to report they had recovered parts of a personal computer that had been placed in a dumpster at a metal scrap yard within their venue. Granite City police said they observed a person in the parking lot of a scrap yard in at 11 p.m. on April 27.

During the course of the investigation, authorities discovered the man tossing the computer was Virgil Heinle, the father of Dalton Heinle.

Virgil Heinle, 49, turned himself in to the Breckenridge Hills Police Department where he was charged with tampering with physical evidence and released pending further investigation.




Adultery crime closer to repeal in Colorado....


Colorado moved a step closer to repealing the unenforced crime of adultery Friday with a Senate vote, after arguments that the crime is outdated and never enforced.

The bill also repeals the related crime of contributing to "sexual immorality" by providing a place for unmarried people to have sex. That prohibition was aimed at Frontier-era flophouses.

Colorado is one of a handful of states that still have adultery crimes on the books, and there has been little debate about tossing the prohibition.

"These are very antiquated notions, and in my mind they're actually unconstitutional," said the bill's sponsor, Democratic Sen. Pat Steadman, who doubted that a crime that hinges on a person's marital status and wouldn't be illegal for unmarried people could withstand a legal challenge.

One lawmaker, though, has taken issue with the measure. Republican Sen. Kevin Lundberg argued unsuccessfully Friday that lawmakers should hold off repealing the sexual immorality part until they can be assured the change won't endanger modern-day prostitution and human trafficking cases.

Lundberg feared that repealing the place-of-unmarried-sex law could spark brothels in Colorado.

"I've been informally calling this the brothel bill, because that's what it's going to be doing," Lundberg warned.

Steadman said he insisted other laws prevent brothels.

"If the Chicken House henhouse that you're worried about were to set up shop in Colorado ... I'd assume they'd be prosecuted for aiding and abetting that activity," he argued. deets here

Lolz, Seriously? I swear Republicans like Lundberg must suffer from syphilis, they are so demented....

Roseville, Cali to settle anti-gay harassment suit...


A notice of settlement was filed in the anti-gay harassment case that pitted two current and one former Roseville police officers against the City of Roseville. The notice came late Monday, the day jury selection was scheduled to begin in the trial.

Plaintiffs in the suit, Roseville Police Department Investigations Supervisor Sgt. Darin DeFreece, Officer Ken Marler and former narcotics detective Michael Lackl, accused police management of fostering a hostile work environment that targeted gay officers and those perceived to be gay. The civil rights lawsuit filed in February 2010 called for unspecified damages.

Attorneys for the plaintiffs in the case are declining to comment before the settlement can be officially signed. The city did not return calls for comment by press time Tuesday.

The details are expected to be made public as any financial settlement would likely be paid by the city.

Roseville’s total cost of mounting a legal defense is still unclear. Last year alone, Roseville paid out $196,000 in legal fees to the Sacramento law firm McDonough, Holland and Allen."

NOM Joins Anti-gay Bigot Ruben Diaz's Rally Against Gay Marriage...

You know there is no love lost between myself and bigots, Ruben Diaz and NOM. Ruben Diaz even named me as one of his haters in an open letter on his website i posted about the other day....

NOM has officially aligned themselves with NY Sen. Ruben Diaz' massive anti-gay hate rally, which takes place in the Bronx on Sunday, May 15th, the day of the AIDS Walk in Central Park.

On May 15, Rev Díaz called for a rally in the Bronx and I will be there! Talk about fighting for marriage in the deep blue country! But marriage is an extraordinary issue which gathers together people of all races, creeds and colors in defense of an idea: Marriage is the way we bring together the two great halves of humanity, male and female, in part so that children can know the love of their mom and dad. We're gearing up with Rev. Díaz and thousands of New Yorkers to fight for marriage. Pray for Rev. Díaz and for all on the front lines of this fight, will you? And following Rev. Díaz's lead, pray for those who wish to redefine marriage—for their safety, for a new spirit of civility and decency—and for the conversion of their hearts to support for marriage. - Brian Brown.  Via joemygod

This was no big surprise. Those NOM losers will do anything to get people to rally for their hate journey....And as for Ruben Diaz, well he is just an asshole....

Dreamworks Movie Artist Charged in Fatal Dog Beating...

This scumbag! Call me crazy, but i think this pig should have the same punishment bestowed upon him as he did and innocent puppy. God help him if that was my dog, this bitch would be history....ZERO tolerance for animal cruelty...

A visual effects artist who worked on several Dreamworks films like "Shrek" faces more than 4 years in prison -- after he was accused of beating his neighbor's puppy to death ... with a hammer.

According to law enforcement, Young Song -- who also worked on films like "Kung Fu Panda," "Shark Tale," and "Madagascar 2" -- allegedly entered his neighbor's backyard last week ... and shot their 16-month-old German shepherd with a pellet gun, before beating it to death with a hammer.

According to the puppy's owner the act was caught on surveillance video.

Song pled "not guilty" today to one felony count of cruelty to an animal, and one count of misdemeanor petty theft of a dog ... after he allegedly dragged the mutilated corpse from his neighbor's yard.

Song was arrested yesterday and bail was set at $40,000. He is still in custody. His next court date is May 26. Song's lawyer Nicholas Okorocha had no comment.

Not Good Minnesota: Same sex marriage constitutional ban advances....


A judiciary committee in Minnesota's senate passed a bill that could allow voters to pass a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage.

Voting 8-4, Minnesota's GOP-controlled senate judiciary committee green-lit the legislation after two hours of debate and an hour-long debate between senators, reports the Minnesota Star-Tribune. Previous efforts by Minnesota's senate to pass a constitutional ban on gay marriage — the state already outlaws marriage equality, though the ban is not yet written into the constitution — have failed, but Republicans gained an upper hand in the past election. Both the senate and house of Minnesota are Republican-controlled, while the governor, Mark Dayton, is a Democrat.

Civil rights leaders and Democrats say the constitutional ban is an effort by Republicans to distract voters from more pressing issues. deets here

"Normal Heart" Opens to Rave Reviews!


Awesome!

Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart — which follows the lives of a group of friends during the early days of the AIDS epidemic — has opened to rave reviews on Broadway, with The New York Times calling it a "passionately acted" drama that "blasts you like an open, overstoked furnace."

From the review: “More than a quarter of a century after it first scorched New York, The Normal Heart is breathing fire again. The passionately acted new Broadway production of Larry Kramer’s watershed drama from 1985 — an indictment of a world unwilling to confront the epidemic that would come to be known as AIDS — blasts you like an open, overstoked furnace. Your eyes are pretty much guaranteed to start stinging before the first act is over, and by the play’s end even people who think they have no patience for polemical theater may find their resistance has melted into tears. No, make that sobs.”

The Normal Heart runs for 96 performances only with a portion of ticket sales supporting the Human Rights Campaign. Click here for more info.

Atlanta Braves Coach Placed On Leave After Anti-Gay Slurs and Threat...

Atlanta Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell has been placed on "administrative leave" -- after he allegedly hurled several gay slurs at male fans during a game in San Francisco last weekend.

0429_Roger_McDowell_getty_bn

As we previously reported, a family of four -- including two 9-year-old girls -- went public with their accusations this week ... claiming McDowell made several homophobic remarks toward fans at AT&T Park ... and then mockingly proceeded to simulate gay sex with a baseball bat.

The father of the family claims he confronted McDowell -- who allegedly responded by approaching him with the bat, and saying, "How much are your teeth worth?"

McDowell has since apologized for the outburst -- but the Braves have suspended his coaching duties pending an investigation into the allegations. tmz

Protesters Fight Tenn. 'Don't Say Gay' Bill


OAK RIDGE, Tenn. A legislator's proposal to prohibit Tennessee educators from teaching children about homosexuality is discriminatory and could lead to bullying.

It would cause authorities to question what they might be allowed to discuss with gay students or the children of homosexual parents. And it would send a message to those kids that they don't matter or count.

Those are a few of the reasons roughly 75 people at a spirited Thursday afternoon rally in Oak Ridge gave for opposing a bill proposed by Tennessee Sen. Stacey Campfield, a Knoxville Republican. Campfield's bill could prohibit educators from teaching or providing materials on any type of sexuality other than heterosexuality to students from kindergarten to eighth grade.

"Not talking about this issue hides it and makes it worse," said Katherine Carow, an Oak Ridge High School junior and vice president of the school's Gay Straight Alliance.

Rally organizers had expected a vote on the bill, SB 49, in the Tennessee Senate on Thursday, but it has been delayed a week. In the meantime, rally organizers urged people to call their state senators to oppose the bill.

R.I. Civil Unions Bill to Be Introduced Tuesday...


Rhode Island lawmakers could introduce a civil unions bill as soon as Tuesday after deciding this week not to push for marriage equality legislation.

According to theAssociated Press, “The new bill comes after House Speaker Gordon Fox declared that gay marriage legislation wouldn't pass the General Assembly this year. Fox, who is gay, now supports civil unions as a more politically feasible alternative.”

The civil unions legislation would seek to give same-sex couples in Rhode Island the same state rights given to married couples. Lawmakers are reviewing civil unions laws in other states to help them draft their proposal, the AP reports.

Senate president Teresa Paiva-Weed, a marriage equality opponent, supports civil unions and has said she believes a bill would pass her chamber. Fox attributed the marriage equality setback in part to her opposition, but others debate whether his chamber had enough votes to pass the bill. Committee hearings were held in both the house and senate this winter on the marriage equality bill, but no votes were ever taken.

Gov. Lincoln Chafee, an independent who pushed for marriage equality, said he would sign a civil unions bill if it passes. Other advocates strongly object to the change in direction.

GOProud is Disgusting!!! Scumbags Of The Day...



GOProud is in a desperate fight to defeat Obama with a republican in 2012, it is their number one goal. Now for those of you who do not know who they are, GOProud is a gay republican Conservative group. Can you imagine? What  a joke. President Jimmy LaSalvia in his statement below, claims that Obama has been nothing of a "disaster for gays and lesbians"...Yeah, you know it, I'm getting started. Clearly LaSalvia has not been living in the same country as the rest of us gays because if he were, he would know the following FACTS of what Obama has done for the gays:

1. Repeal of DADT
2. Every hospital that accepts medicare & Medicaid (which is virtually every hospital) must allow gays and lesbians to have non-family visitors and to grant their partners medical power of attorney.
3. Obama Administration has hired more OPENLY gay & lesbian staffers than any other president in history. More then Clinton and Bush combined.
4. Denounced DOMA, calling it unconstitutional and refusing to defend it in court.
5.Signed the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, the first federal civil rights law to protect gays and lesbians.
6.Instructed federal agencies to extend benefits where possible to same-sex partners of civilian federal employees.
7.Ordered the release of data on legally married gay couples from the 2010 census, conferring legitimacy on same-sex relationships.
8.Ended a ban on HIV-positive immigrants and foreign visitors.
9.Announced new regulations that recognize LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) families for federal housing programs and prohibit discrimination in getting federally insured mortgage loans.
10.Appointed more than 100 openly gay people in his administration, including the government's top personnel official and the head of the Council for Environmental Quality.
11.Awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to gay icons Harvey Milk and Billie Jean King.
12.Hosted a White House summit on bullying and recorded a video message to gay youths telling them that "It Gets Better."
13. INVITED LGBT Families to the white house easter eggroll.
14. Has dinners at the white house for the LGBT community. 
15. Signs U.N. declaration that calls for the decriminalization of homosexuality. Which dumbass Bush refused to sign during his entire joke of a presidency...

Shall i go on, or is that enough LaSalvia? What have you done for the gay community that even comes close to this list? Besides embarrass yourselves. Obama has done more in his 3 years than any other president has done in history. And certainly no Republican would EVER do any of the above. So you want to talk about disaster? That would have been any Republican you idiots support.

GOProud in my opinion, are nothing more than a but a bunch of self loathing gays who can not except their homosexuality fully and resigned themselves to believe that they are second class citizens. Which is sad in this day and age. So my advice to LaSalvia and the rest of GOProud, is to get some self respect, be truly PROUD of who you are and stand up and support the people who are really fighting for your rights...

Gay conservative group GOProud has one mission between now and November, 2012 —defeating Barack Obama.

“Barack Obama’s tenure in the White House has been an unmitigated disaster for all Americans, including gay and lesbian Americans,” GOProud president Jimmy LaSalvia said in a statement. “Defeating Barack Obama and putting a conservative in the White House should be the number one goal of every single person in the conservative movement."

The group is looking ahead toward the Iowa Straw Poll in August as the kickoff for the effort. The Ames Straw Poll will begin on August 11th with a Republican Presidential debate and conclude on August 13th with the actual straw poll itself.

“This Republican presidential field is shaping up to be an incredibly strong one,” La Salvia said. We look forward to hearing each of the candidates make his or her case about why they would be the best nominee to beat Barack Obama.” deets here

Appeals court lifts ban on federal funding for stem cell research...


Good news! There are so many diseases stem cell research can potentially help....

Washington (CNN) -- A federal court has given the Obama administration the go-ahead to continue funding embryonic stem cell research.

The controversial 2-1 decision Friday is a victory for supporters of federally funded testing for a range of diseases and illnesses.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia lifted an injunction imposed last year by a federal judge, who said all embryonic stem cell research at the National Institutes of Health amounted to destruction of embryos, in violation of congressional spending laws.

Legislation passed in 1996 prohibits the use of taxpayer dollars in the creation or destruction of human embryos 'for research purposes.' Private money had been used to gather batches of the developing cells at U.S.-run labs. The current administration had broken with the Bush White House and issued rules in 2009 permitting those cells to be reproduced in controlled conditions and for work on them to move forward."

Happy Friday!!!














Have a great weekend! And as always, thanks for stopping buy!!!!

Professor Terminated for Being Transgender


Can you say ACLU....

A transgender professor was denied tenure and fired from Southeastern Oklahoma State University for her gender identity. Rachel Tudor, who is transgender, was told by the school's human resources department that she could only use the single-use handicapped restroom after she underwent gender reassignment surgery.

Tudor, who taught for the English, humanities and language department, surmised that the request came from academic affairs vice president Douglas McMillan, who had once said that Tudor's transgender status "offends his Baptist beliefs," according to The Daily Collegian at Oklahoma State University. She was then denied tenure at the school and told that she would be terminated at the end of the semester, on May 31.

According to a petition in support of Tudor, the professor has been approved for tenure twice in the last two years by the Faculty Appeals Committee, but the administration re-wrote the Academic Policies and Procedures manual to prevent Tudor from obtaining tenure.

Real World's Dustin Zito Comes Clean About Gay Porn Past...


The Real World's 24-year-old Dustin Zito, who made headlines for his gay-for-pay porn past (and the subsequent attempts toeradicate said past from the internet), came clean to his TV girlfriend on last night's episode.

At first the former Fratmen.com model — who has demonstrated blatant homophobia on previousReal World episodes — denied having sex on camera, but quickly caved.

"Wait...what? I didn't get taped having sex. Yeah, OK, I got naked and stuff. There wasn't no touching involved."

“So, you never did anything where you touched anyone else?” asks the girlfriend.

“On a video, yes, I did.” deets here

Ok, nobody has sex with the same gender unless there is some form of attraction there. Money is a good motivator, however i know plenty of people who would not do it no matter what you paid them. Also, we are not talking about one video here, he has done a few. Anyway we know the "Real World" is about as real as the Hills, so with that in mind, i am not even going to entertain this anymore further. :)

Antigay Okla. Lawmaker Makes Racist Remarks


This bitch is just plain dumb!

Sally Kern, the Oklahoma representative who compared LGBT people to terrorists and cancer, has turned her attacks toward African Americans as her state debates whether to end affirmative action.

Both houses of the state legislature have approved a constitutional amendment that would eliminate affirmative action in state government. The proposal is headed to the voters for consideration in 2012.

According to Tulsa World, Kern said minorities “earn less than white people because they don’t work as hard and have less initiative.”

She said, “We have a high percentage of blacks in prison, and that’s tragic, but are they in prison just because they are black or because they don’t want to study as hard in school? I’ve taught school, and I saw a lot of people of color who didn’t study hard because they said the government would take care of them.”

A self-styled martyr, Kern authored a new book, The Stoning of Sally Kern, and suggested that LGBT activists were to blame for disappointing sales. deets here

The 91-Year-Old Woman Selling $60 Suicide Kits...



And on the internet no less! A 91 yr old on the internet is amazing enough to me...

These materials were assembled and sold to Klonoski last June for $60 by a company that calls itself the Gladd Group, which is not really a group at all. It’s a woman from the San Diego suburb of La Mesa, California, named Sharlotte Hydorn. She is 91 years old.

Each of the kits Hydorn assembles by hand is a simple contraption designed for a single purpose: people kill themselves with it by encasing their head in a bag of helium, which is lethal in pure form. People like Klonoski, the son of a U.S. district judge and whose funeral was attended by more than a thousand people. The Gladd Group’s estimated annual sales are $98,000. That means Sharlotte Hydorn sells more than 1,600 suicide kits every year.

“I’m too busy to cash the bloody checks,” she told The Daily Beast. “I haven’t made a deposit in three months.” deets here

Douchebag of the Day: Bryan Fischer, Denounces Glee For Promotion Of Homosexuality...


Fox News wasted their "precious" time having anti-gay hater Bryan Fischer and gay activist Ray Hill debate the anti-bullying glee episode that aired on Tuesday. Par for the course for Fox News, it was all about promoting anti-homosexuality. Bryan Fischer is a big wig with American Family Association, a hate group that is in a bitter war against "them there, homosexuals". But i will say, Hill took no bullshitz from anal Fischer. He gave it back to him but good. I think that is what is missing in a lot of these "debates", the pro gay guests do not hand these bible beating scumbags their asses enough...

Keith: Bryan, what do you think of the homosexuality storylines that we’re having in more shows now?

Fischer: Well I’m deeply concerned bout this because what these television programs are doing is glamorizing homosexual behavior, glamorizing homosexual conduct. This is conduct that carries enormous psychological and physical risks to those who engage in it. It’s just not a lifestyle, it’s not behavior that ought to be glamorized or presented in a way that makes it idealistic. deets here

Church Touts Homosexuality as a Gift, Not a Sin


That’s the message that Central United Methodist Church is spreading throughout their community via a digital billboard, launched on Monday.

This “simple statement,” the church announced, is “intended to be a gift to those who have experienced hurt and discrimination because of their real or perceived sexual orientation.”

“The Church seeks nothing less than the healing of the world, and Central UMC wants to offer words and acts of healing to those hurt and marginalized,” the website states.

The Toledo church’s controversial billboard ad is directly connected to a long month-long sermon series by its new pastor, Bill Barnard. The church is hoping that the ad will move the public towards tolerance, reported ABC 13, and not perpetuate anti-gay attitudes and behaviors, which were harming the LGBT community.

The purposes of their recently launched campaign are threefold: to offer welcome to all persons who are gay; to challenge the larger Church to fully accept persons who are gay into the life of the Church; and to call on all people to bring all the gifts of who they are to God.

“By welcoming and living in community with faithful Christians who happen to be gay, we have come to understand that being gay is part of who God made them to be,” CUMC proclaims on their site. “And by gay Christians bringing all that they are to God, the body of Christ has been strengthened.”

“In fact, we would experience the body of Christ as incomplete without LGBT persons.”

Barnard told ABC, “We really believe that being gay is a gift from God, and it’s not anything that anyone has to apologize for or be ashamed about. So that’s how [the campaign] came to be.” deets here

Now if only all the gay hating, bible beating "Christians" would get this message through their heads, the world would be a better place...

Braves coach McDowell apologizes after threat, gay slur accusation...

I must say, this re-enactment of the sex act with the bat is over the top! Lols

Gloria Allred gave a press conference yesterday demanding that Braves pitching Coach and apparent homophobe, Roger McDowell make an appology and suffer some other consequences for his out of control behaviour on the field the other day. Shortly after Gloria's press conference which you can see here at TMZ. McDowell issued the following- lack there of- apology:

'I am deeply sorry that I responded to the heckling fans in San Francisco on Saturday. I apologize to everyone for my actions.' Wow, That is about as good as Kobe's (crocodile tears) act of contrition....

Here is what went down:

Justin Quinn, the father alleges his family witnessed McDowell asked a male group of fans, 'Are you a homo couple or a threesome?' and 'Are you three giving it to each other in the [redacted].'

It's also alleged that McDowell used the bat he was carrying to simulate (presumably) gay sex. When the father confronted McDowell from the stands about his behavior, the coach responded:

'Kids don't [blanking] belong at the baseball park' ... and then approached him with a baseball bat, saying, 'How much are your teeth worth?'"

“Even though I am not gay, and these statements were not directed at me, I heard them, and so did my nine-year-old daughters. … Children should not be told that they do not belong at the ballpark.”Quinn immediately complained to staff at AT&T, whom he said were “very attentive, and took it seriously.” He also filed a police report. Quinn said that he didn’t notice anything out of the ordinary that occurred in the bleachers that would make McDowell explode.

Quinn: “He turned around and proceeded to go through the events described. Fans were saying throw us the ball, and apparently Mr. McDowell thought he heard something that warranted him doing something as a coach. … I had proceeded to yell out that there are kids here, and he proceeded to say ‘Kids don’t belong at the f-ing ballpark.’ At that point he turned toward me, grabbed a bat and asked how much my teeth are worth to me?” deets here

What a filthy pig. To speak like that in front of two little girls. Disgusting, he should be fired for that. Yes fired. I am so tired of people doing bad things and thinking an apology is they need to excuse their behavior. Apologies have become old and not authentic anymore, because so many people think that a heartless "i'm sorry" is all they need to give, in order to save face. There is no excuse for bad behavior. McDowell knew and knows better....In the words of Franklin F. Hart (9to5) " Fire the bitch"

New Mexico school bans club meetings after gay club formed...

School officials call it coincidental that the alliance applied while school policies were being reviewed, but representatives of the American Civil Liberties Union of New Mexico say they are concerned about the timing of the decision.

"This sort of tactic has been used in the past by school districts to discourage gay-straight clubs from forming," Micah McCoy, communications specialist for ACLU of New Mexico, said on Wednesday. "A lot of alarm bells went off when we saw this."

In a vote Tuesday night, the Clovis school board decided to prohibit any extra-curricular club from meeting during school hours or using school resources to meet and gather.

Meetings for the gay-straight alliance were going to be held after school all along, said James Walker, a senior at the school. But without resources or the ability to hang flyers or make announcements, it will be difficult to publicize meetings, he said.

"Now it's almost an underground operation," he said.

The gay-straight alliance is meant to create a safe place where students can get together and work toward greater tolerance and make schools safer places for gay, lesbian transgender and questioning students, McCoy said. deets here

This seems a little suspicious to me. Why would a school cancel all extra-curricular clubs? But more importantly, in this day and age with all the pressures and personal issues teens go through, you would think a school would put an emphasis on servicing the needs of the students. And clubs, what ever they might be, give kids a place to be around others like themselves...Once again, some dick head not putting children first...

Teacher Gets Fired, Walks Through School Naked...



Harlan Porter, a 31-year-old teacher at B.C. Haynie Elementary School in Georgia, was discovered by another teacher walking through the school completely naked at 3:20 p.m. on Friday. Porter had recently learned that his contract wouldn't be renewed.
The students had already gone home, sparing Porter a charge of child molestation, but he was jailed and charged with public indecency and indecent exposure. The police officer who arrested him didn't fail to see the humor in the situation — particularly when the teacher started babbling in New Age-speak.
The arresting officer wrote in the incident report that Porter spoke of a "new level of enlightenment" and said "he wanted everybody to be free now that his third eye was open."
"I then explained the obvious problem with his third eye being opened in public," the officer wrote. "He readily agreed that his decision to remove his clothing posed a problem and stated that he understood why I would likely have to place him under arrest."
The police report went on to say that teachers had noticed other strange behavior in Porter: The strict vegan had been spotted binging on Taco Bell just hours before his nude stroll. Which — everybody now! — goes a long way towards explaining that gaping third eye. deets here
