'Documentary looks at U.S. government's nasty war on gays' & other Monday midday news briefs

FBI director J. Edgar Hoover - rumored to be gay but helped to wage an ugly war ON gays

Uniquely Nasty: The U.S. Government's War on Gays - A documentary looks at the time in history where the United States government actively and specifically waged war against the gay community. Actions happening in the past may seem to be in the past, but the repercussions always come back to bite us in the behind. It would do the lgbt community well to remember ALL of our history. It's always nice to remember events like Stonewall, but we shouldn't forget the events which led to Stonewall nor the folks who had to endure the awful indignities during those times so that we wouldn't have to. Especially when folks are attempting to push a false narrative of "intolerant gays." 

How LGBT Teachers Deal With Intolerance Across The Country - While we are waiting for the SCOTUS decision on marriage equality, let's not forget the other issues the lgbt community has to deal with. 

 IBM cancels ribbon-cutting because of Bobby Jindal’s anti-gay executive order - Sock it to 'em, IBM!!!!  

GOP Candidates Vie to Be Most Antigay at Rightwing Event - While America was dealing with much more pressing issues last weekend, the anti-gay right had another one of their homophobia festivals. 

 Mike Huckabee: Fight Gay Marriage Like Dred Scott Ruling With Civil Disobedience - Yeah, but just WHO fought the Dredd Scott decision with civil disobedience? I may be wrong but I don't think Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation in response to the Dredd Scott decision.
