E.S.Q.: Wait... I'm sorry, I thought the article was about a Gay Day.

Apparently, the day is to honor a man, not a sexuality.

Whew.


And why Is Harvey Milk famous? Is is becuase he was the first openly gay politician in California's History, who was then killed ?

[enter elementary school in california]

Student: Why are we celebrating Chocloate Milk Day?

Teacher: No, it's Harvey Milk Day?

Student: What's Harvey Milk? Is that like lowfat milk or something, becuase I only drink 2%?

Teacher: No silly. Harvey Milk was californian politician who was killed.

Student: Do we get the day off? or a Half Day?

Teacher: No, it's an honoary Day. A day to honor his achievements.

Student: Do we at least get cookies and milk...you know, for harvey MILK day? It would make sense.

Teacher: well no, but we-

Student: Are we still going to have homework, I don't Harvey would approve

Teacher: Yes, you will still have your homework

Student: then why are we learning about this guy too?

Teacher: Well, Harvey Milk was the first openly gay politician in San Francisco 30 years ago

Student: And....

Teacher: ah, well I guess that's it...

Student: Well this is gay.

Are they going to pass out tooth brushes and toothpaste in school on Harvey Milk day? How did he get any gay lovin' with teeth like that?

shivashakti: The Laughing Kookaburra: Whew. It's almost as if the only reason he is of note was because of his sexuality

That's like saying the only reason MLK Jr is of note..is because he's black. Yes, he's black. But he accomplished great things in civil rights. As did Harvey Milk, to a lesser extent. That's why he deserves recognition.

Why is that so threatening to so many people? Unless you're part of a minority group who has no power or influence in society, you're not going to understand what a big deal that is.


My point was: Don't try to separate him from his sexuality as if he were a noted scientist who just happened to be gay. He is famous because he was a rump ranger who met an unfortunate demise. Why is this so threatening to people who have an agenda and are always looking to play the oppressed minority card?

well, if they aren't going to legalize and tax marijuana, maybe they should legalize and tax gheys? i'd say an extra 10,000/year gay tax would be faaaabbbbulous for the state.

E.S.Q.: mycatisposter: Maybe some dentists will offer discounted cleanings to the gay men whose breath smells like feces from sucking on something that was crammed in their rectum.
That would benefit everyone.

If gays with bad breath are that big of a public emergency in your area, maybe you shouldn't live in a gay neighborhood.


Public emergency? Gay Neighborhood?
No. It simply creates an uncomfortable disciplinary situation when an employee's breath smells literally like crap and clients complain about it. Perhaps I'll just fire him now. He will surely be consoled by the fact that Harvey has his own day.
 
2009-10-13 09:33:08 AM  
I'm sure if it were about his killing and sexuality and not the devoted community work he did for the people he represented that it would be called Harvey's A Dead Fag Day.

Nope, no mention of gay , queer, fag or any other pejorative in there. The man is being honored for his life's work, not his death.

Keep reaching for the stars, ladies.

Fire the fag because you're not comfortable having a conversation with him about a minor personal hygiene issue that would doubtless be plenty easy for you if he were straight.

Well, you sure are a big bucket of win.

Yes, because being black all the time is EXACTLY like being gay, where nobody knows your gay if you don't act out in public.

All sexual activity is voluntary - you CHOOSE to do each act.

In that way, people choose to be gay WAY more than they choose to be black. Frankly, once you have a kid, you don't even get to choose to be straight anymore.

rubi_con_man: All sexual activity is voluntary - you CHOOSE to do each act.

Sexual activity is chosen, but one's base sexual nature is not.

People don't choose to be gay any more than you debated farking a man or a woman just before you lost your virginity (giving benefit of doubt here).

You knew which team you were on long before you started to play the game.

If you are unable to give appropriate feedback to an employee about proper hygiene when showing up at work, he should keep his job, and his incomptent manager should be the one who gets his ass fired.

After getting a competent manager who is able to talk to an employee and make them understand that clients feel that their personal hygiene is not up to par, and only after showing that he is unable to comply with said feedback, his ass should be fired.

No, I'll just fire him for being a fag. That's bad enough. If a "straight" man's bad breath was from sucking cawks, he would not be a "straight" man.

Well, you sure are a big bucket of win.
Yes, a big, throbbing, veiny Fabulous bucket! (am I doing it right?)


/do you get a chub thinking about how angry he makes you?

Yes, because we all know that those of us that do not like bad breath are closet homosexuals.

By the way, the use of "public emergency" and "how angry he makes you" do not add the necessary hysteria that you are looking for. Try again. This time try to add latent sexual terms such as "insertion" or "stroking" for better results.

Nice cop out. Just admit he is only notable for being an openly gay guy that was murdered and spare me the bullshiat about him being a great humanitarian who's activism benefited anyone but a small minority. He was certainly no MLK.

See, I was responding to your original question: what notable community contributions had he made, other than his sexuality? Frankly, I don't see how his sexuality is a community contribution at all, but that's what you asked. His campaign to defeat the Briggs Initiative was about community civil rights, not the fact that he was gay. Otherwise, it would have been the campaign to notify everyone that Harvey Milk was gay, or something.
I think you're just moving the goalposts at this point.

There are many "openly gay guys that were murdered". Milk was not notable for being one of them. As I've pointed out, at least one of his notable community contributions was leading the defeat of the Briggs Initiative. You've said "oh, that doesn't count", which is not even a nice cop out, just a weak one.

Well, two examples have been given already. I encourage you to set aside the frustration you face from the conflict that arises from the dicotomy of your latent desires and your repressive family upbringing and read the Wikipedia entry.

You do seem unusually preoccupied with his sexuality, I'm sensing this is a projection of your own sublimated curiosities.


Seriously, if you think being openly gay in San Francisco is noteworthy, you just don't get out much.

Maybe you could also explain to people who are outraged or disgusted by child molesters, that they are simply making a desperate bid to hide their latent desire to screw children themselves.

"Harvey Milk Day" will not be a formal state holiday, so government employees will not be given the day off. The bill instead calls for the day to be observed by public schools as a day of special significance.

[snip]

Leno said he would support making Milk's birthday a formal holiday but conceded the state can't afford it because it would require overtime payments to thousands of state workers.


Because giving state "workers" 14 paid days off a year isn't enough.

That's not entirely fair, particularly as California's civil servants have taken massive cuts and forced unpaid leave recently in order to rescue the state budget, though no fault of their own.

Molesting children is illegal. Being gay isn't illegal.

But you might be right about the child molesting thing being more common in the people who shriek about it the most.

Only notable for being an openly gay murder-victim? That's just silly.

As a straight white man I can tell you that I do feel as if I have benefited from the "humanitarian activism" of many men and women who weren't necessarily fighting for my rights directly. I believe in liberty and freedom and one of the biggest reasons I choose to live in a so-called free country is because I am proud of the fact that America can and will eventually recognize the equality and right to liberty of all of people - no matter how small of a minority they may fall into. I know that I directly benefit from pioneers such as MLK and yes - men like Harvey Milk and an endless list of martyrs and heroes who stand up to injustice or, in your case, cynicism.

Maybe you're right and he was "no MLK" but he was certainly a step in the right direction, and if more people followed in his footsteps then I believe this would be a better country.

And guess what - I vote republican.

Can you sue if you make a hetero pass and get shot down? No? Then how in the bloody hell do you anticipate someone doing so for a homosexual pass?


No no. Portscanner has a point. It's already happened. Just take a look at the examples on this page (pops). Straights that turn aside gay advances often find themselves being hounded by the post-humous gays.

How do you figure that him fighting for the equality of only a "small minority" of people makes his efforts any less important? If anything, I believe that makes it that much more so.

It's fine that in your life his influence hasn't been important, but in some of ours it has meant a great deal. Different strokes, dude. No need to shiat all over something because you don't understand it.
