Russian Hackers Go After Hunters (AKA Russian Grindr)

Russian Hunters Grindr

The biggest threat to the Sochi Olympic Games is not Dagestani terrorists hell bent on blowing up athletes or the piles of rotting dog carcasses lining the streets of Sochi. No, the biggest threat to the Winter Olympics is obviously gay dating apps – which is why Russian hackers have attacked Hunters, the Russian equivalent to Grindr.

The gay dating app was attacked by hackers who programmed it to send an anonymous threat to all users on Feb. 1 at 11:52 that read “You will be arrested and jailed for gay propaganda in Sochi according to Russian Federationa Law #135 Sektion 6.” Referring, of course, to Russia’s infamous anti-gay law that bans anyone from publicly advocating being homosexual, or distributing pro-homosexual “propaganda” to minors.

In addition to the ominous message, the Hunters app is now blocked for all users in Sochi and approximately 72,000 user profiles were deleted throughout Russia. Users were told their passwords were incorrect and that they were banned from accessing the site for the next “55,260 minutes” – which is oddly specific…

Hunters’ CEO, Dimitry T, who withheld his last name because he’d rather not spend the rest of his life in a Russian Gulag, responded to the hacking with this:

“I urge the entire gay community and all of those who consider the Internet to be a free zone to boycott not only Russian vodka but also everything that is linked to the Olympics and not to buy any Olympic souvenirs.

This attack should be looked at as an attack on the worldwide gay community with the goal of blocking any gay interactions during the Winter Games in Sochi, including those between athletes and locals.”

Dimitry also said the team at Hunters was only able to restore 24% of the dating profiles after “12 long hours” of work. Hopefully  these dating profile pics were among the ones that were destroyed forever.

Sochi Mayor Anatoly Pakhomov: There Are NO Homosexuals In Sochi

anatoly-pakhomov

Despite there being several gay bars in Sochi, Mayor Anatoly Pakhomov insists that Sochi is 100% homosexual-free.

In an interview with the BBC’s program Panorama, Pakhomov reiterated Putin’s Olympic stance, saying gays were welcome to visit Sochi during the 2014 Winter Olympics as long as they “respect Russian law” and “don’t impose their habits on others.” Especially the children!

But will gay people have to hide their sexuality in Sochi, Mr. Pakhomov?

“No, we just say that it is your business, it’s your life. But it’s not accepted here in the Caucasus where we live. We do not have them in our city,” Pakhomov said.

None??? But what about the gay bars? Surely there must be some kind of LGBT community to keep them profitable?

“I am not sure, but I don’t bloody know them,” the mayor said when challenged.

Ok, so there might be some, but the mayor is far too straight to know who they are. Got it.

Interestingly enough, BBC Panorama reporter John Sweeney visited a gay bar in Sochi the night before he interviewed Pakhomov. While most people were too terrified of being shipped off to Siberia to be filmed, Sweeney did meet a drag queen named Madame Zhu-Zha.

“There are very many clubs for gay people in Moscow – in Sochi we have two gay clubs as well. In some places there’s serious prejudice against gay people. In other places it’s not as bad,” Madame Zhu-Zha said.

No word yet on whether Mayor Pakhomov is a regular customer of the Sochi drag scene, but if Republicans in America have taught us anything, it’s that the more often you spout off homophobic nonsense, the more likely you are to have a gay scandal blow up in your face.

Hong Kong Billionaire Doubles The Reward To Turn His Lesbian Daughter Straight

Cecil Chao Lesbian Daughter

If at first you don’t succeed, double your offer and hope someone will bang the lesbian out of your daughter.

Hong Kong billionaire Cecil Chao first made headline in Septmeber 2012 when he publicly announced he would give $65 million to any man who could woo his daughter away from her lesbian partner.

Despite the fact that his daughter, Gigi, had just eloped with her female partner in France, the 76-year-old Hong Kong real estate magnate insisted she was still single and was determined to find her a husband.

“I would not force her to marry a man. But obviously I would, from my point of view, prefer her to be married and to have grandchildren,” Chao said.

Interesting coment from a man who has never married, fathered three children with three different mothers, and has bragged about sleeping with more than 10,000 women…

After the initial reward announcement, the offers came pouring in from millionaire-wannabes all over the world.

“War veterans from the US, someone from Ethiopia, from Istanbul, South America, Portugal, really just from all over the world,” Gigi Chao said, recalling the potential suitors.

But after thousands of potential suitors failed to lure her to the straight side, Cecil Chao has decided to up the stakes by offering approximately $130 million to any man who can sweep his daughter off her feet.

But Gigi Chao has her doubts about the whole process.

“I don’t think my dad’s offering of any amount of money would be able to attract a man I would find attractive,” Gigi told the Malaysian newspaper Nanyang Siang Pau.

Challenged accepted?

Russia’s Ban on Gay Propaganda is Totally Fine Because Putin Has A Gay Friend

Putin Propaganda

President Vladimir Putin insists he’s not a homophobe, despite defending Russia’s law on gay propaganda by equating gays with pedophiles and suggesting Russia needs to “cleanse” itself of homosexuality if it wants to increase its birth rate.

Last year, there was international outcry when Russia passed a law banning “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations” among minors. As the controversy continues ahead of the Sochi Olympics, Putin has made an effort to reassure gay athletes and fans that they will not be discriminated against and that he himself is not prejudiced against homosexuals.

“I myself know some people who are gay,” he said. “We’re on friendly terms. I’m not prejudiced in any way.”

Ahhh, the old “gay friend” trick.

“If you want my personal attitude, I would tell you that I don’t care about a person’s sexual orientation,” Putin continued. “I’ve honoured several members of the gay community in this country but for their personal achievements, regardless of their sexual orientation.”

Putin was also quick to point out that while many other countries banned homosexual relations, Russia was a gay haven that only prohibited “gay propaganda”.

“There’s no danger for individuals of this non-traditional sexual orientation who are planning to come to the games as visitors or participants,” he said.

As long as they stay away from the children that is.

But not everyone is outraged by Russia’s laws against homosexuality. During a panel discussion on ABC’s This Week, Republican strategist Mary Matalin asserted the Russia’s ban on homosexual and pedophilia propaganda were irrelevant because “all of my gay friends” think Russian President Vladimir Putin is “so buff in his shirtless photos.” Interesting. All of MY gay friends think that the drugs from Mary Matalin’s latest facelift have clearly not worn off yet and she should probably refrain from speaking on television until they do.

Meanwhile, the Sochi Olympics organizers have bigger problems on their hands. A new video has been posted on a Chechen extremist site showing two militant Islamists vowing to wreak havoc during the 2014 Olympic Games.

“We’ll have a surprise package for you,” they say. “And those tourist that will come to you, for them, too, we have a surprise. This will be our revenge.”

Well I certainly hope the surprise package isn’t a gay dick in a box. Otherwise that could cause some serious problems.

Putin: Sochi is Gay Okay, Just Leave the Children Alone… And Other News

SOchi gay children

Gay athletes and visitors will be safe in Sochi – as long as they leave the children alone.

During a question-and-answer session on Friday, Russian President Vladimir Putin reassured everyone that gays need not fear persecution at the Sochi Winter Olympic Games. But Putin also stood behind his country’s ban on promoting homosexuality to children. “We have a ban on the propaganda of homosexuality and pedophilia among minors,” Putin said, “We don’t ban anything and we won’t arrest anyone. Therefore you can feel calm, relaxed. But leave children alone please.” That doesn’t seem very reassuring… but if you want further proof that gay Olympic-enthusiasts will be safe, just check out Sochi’s rainbow-coloured uniforms. If they don’t say gay-friendly, I don’t know what does. Just don’t hand them out to children. Washington Post

California FireAustralia isn’t the only place that’s experiencing heat-related problems. On Thursday, a fast-moving brush fire erupted in California and burned through 1,700 acres in a matter of hours. Three potential hooligans were arrested in connection with the blaze, which is burning north of Los Angeles. The trio is facing charges of recklessly starting a fire and although they were “apologetic,” they are being held on $20,000 bail. And then to make matters worse, on Friday California Governor Jerry Brown declared a drought emergency for the entire state. Fast-moving fire + no water = recipe for disaster. As a result, the governor has called for a voluntary “20 percent conservation” of water use – at least until the rain comes. New York Times

Vatican_2792788bThe U.N is on to you Pope Francis… The United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child got all up in the Vatican’s face about over the sexual abuse of children by clergy. Although the Vatican insisted on Thursday that it is committed to stamping out it’s pedo-reputation, the UN panel publicly confronted the church over the numerous allegations. Vatican officials faced a barrage of tough questions as they appeared before the panel including “Does the Holy See believe that paedophilia is something that can be successfully overcome?” Vatican Answer: “To prevent abuse of minors is a real, immediate concern.” So… is that a yes?

CENTRAL-AFRICA-REPUBLIC-CRISISFrance may have underestimated the level of hatred between Christian and Muslim communities in the conflict-ridden Central African Republic. In fact, there may be impending genocide… France’s ambassador to the UN warned the organization that African Union and French forces were confronting a “nearly impossible” situation between “two communities who want to kill each other”. The former French colony spiralled into total chaos after a mostly Muslim rebel coalition, Seleka, seized power in March and installed their leader Michel Djotodia as interim president. Djotodia resigned last week under intense international pressure but the violence is still going strong. I’m not sure what tipped the French off about their hatred underestimation, but it may have been when a member of a Christian mob attacked and burned a Muslim man and then proceeded to chew on his charred flesh.

Rep. Louie Gohmert: Judges Legalizing Same-Sex Marriage Need Plumbing Lessons

Gohmert Plumbing Lessons

Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert took a break from denying single mothers welfare checks to give some advice to federal judges ruling on same sex-marriage cases: get some “basic plumbing lessons.”

The day after a federal judge declared Oklahoma’s ban on same-sex marriage to be unconstitutional, Louie Gohmert spoke at a “Conversations With Stubborn Five-Year-Olds Conservatives” event hosted by the Heritage Foundation. Gohmert, a very vocal opponent of same-sex marriage, used his Q&A period to criticize the legal justification behind recent rulings in favor of gay marriage.

Gohmert pointed out that some of these gay-friendly courts had found that there was no biological evidence that marriage should be limited to a man and a woman – but obviously they haven’t taken Plumbing 101.

They need some basic plumbing lessons,” he said. “For one omnipotent, omniscious, ubiquitous federal judge who is wise beyond his education to say — to make such a declaration about the law, I think, requires revisiting by each state and compliance with the U.S. Supreme Court.”

Then Michele Bachmann chimed in with a few Obama insults, claiming that refusing to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) on the grounds that it was unconstitutional was an “example of the lawlessness of this president.” Oh, and then she compared Obama to Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, because why not?

Hmm. Sounds like Michele Bachmann also needs a basic plumbing lesson. Her head is clearly up her ass.

Aaron Schock: Anti-Gay Republican or Secretly Gay Anti-Gay Republican?

Aaron Schock

Aaron Schock had his glass closet shattered on Friday when CBS journalist Itay Hod accused the Illinois congressman of being gay and in the closet.

In a Facebook post, Hod, who is also gay, complains that he is fed up with closeted anti-LGBT politicians – especially Rep. Aaron Schock. Although he didn’t mention Schock specifically, he did link to an article about Rep. Aaron Schock’s gayest Instagram photos. Sadly, his Instagram account has been locked.

While acknowledging that outing is considered a faux-pas in the gay community, Hod has apparently had enough with flamboyantly hypocritical politicians who spend their days condemning gay marriage and spend their nights trolling gay bars:

“Here’s a hypothetical: what if you know a certain GOP congressman, let’s just say from Illinois, is gay… and you know this because one of your friends, a journalist for a reputable network, told you in no uncertain terms that he caught that GOP congressman and his male roommate in the shower… together.”

“Now they could have been good friends just trying to conserve water. But there’s more. What if this congressman has also been caught by tmz cameras trolling gay bars. Now what if you know that this very same guy, the darling of the GOP, has also voted against repeal of don’t ask don’t tell, opposed the repeal of DOMA, is against gay marriage; and for the federal marriage amendment, which would add language to the us constitution banning gay marriage and would likely strike down every gay rights law and ordinance in the country?”

Aaron Schock has long been subject to rumours about his sexual orientation because.. well, he dresses like this:

aaronshockshirt-650x494

Poses for Men’s Health like this:

superabs

And the whole trolling gay bars thing doesn’t really help boost his heterosexual credibility. Not to mention that he follows newly-out British Olympic diver Tom Daley on Instagram. No self-respecting homophobe would ever stoop that low!

But despite the piles of evidence, Schock insists he’s super straight. When asked about the gay rumors in 2012, Schock responded, “Those questions are completely ridiculous and inappropriate… I’ve said [I’m straight] before and I don’t think it’s worthy of further response. I think you can look it up.

So I looked up “Aaron Schock sexual orientation” and this is what came up:

Bad News for Gay Mormons, Good News for Anti-Gay Hunger Strikers

Gay Utah Mormon

The Supreme Court has put a hold on a Utah judge’s decision to strike down the state’s ban on same-sex marriage, effectively putting a temporary stop to gay marriage in the state.

On Monday, the Supreme Court issued a brief order blocking any new same-sex unions in the state until a federal appeals court can take a look at the case. More than 900 gay and lesbian couples have married in Utah since Judge Robert Shelby’s December 20 ruling that the state’s ban on same-sex marriage violates same-sex couples’ constitutional rights.

While gay and lesbian couples in the heavily Mormon state are undoubtedly upset at the recent transgressions, there is at least one Mormon out there who is relieved – that he can start eating again.

Trestin Meacham, a 35-year-old Utah man, went on a hunger-strike starting December 21 in protest of Judge Shelby’s decision. While it’s rare to see someone go on a hunger strike so others will have fewer rights, Meacham vows to remain vigilant on his crusade to end same-sex marriage in Utah. Having already lost 25 pounds on his water and vitamin diet, Meacham claims he will fast until Utah decides to nullify the court’s decision.

“This is what happens when Washington decides that a culture and way of life is incompatible with what it decrees. People of faith everywhere need to wake up, what they did to the native Americans, they are now doing to us,” Meacham wrote on Facebook.

I don’t think Washington is handing out blankets riddled with smallpox to heterosexual Mormons, but perhaps the lack of food is effecting Meacham’s brain. Let’s hear a few more Meacham rants:

“The effects of gay marriage? I’m pretty sure a cake maker and handful of photographers, who exercised their right of religious freedom can tell you about the harmful effects of gay marriage. It basically means the end of the first Amendment.”

“The homosexual movement is designed to destroy freedom of religion. I’ve been saying this for years while pointing out case after case, and few cared. But if it involves someone on TV, the world comes apart! They can vandalize churches, verbally lynch religious leaders, and drive people like me from military service; and it’s okay.”

Luckily, most Utah residents aren’t ready to let that kind of crazy into their lives right now. In 2012, Meacham ran for the Utah State Senate as a candidate for the Constitution Party, whose platform “rejects the notion that homosexuals, transgenders or those who are sexually deviant are deserving of legal favor or special protection.” He lost by 73 percentage points.

Uganda Hates Gay People And Miniskirts… And Other News

Uganda Gay

One day after Uganda passed a law banning miniksirts and other sexually suggestive material, parliament approved an anti-homosexuality bill.

Uganda’s new bill makes it a crime punishable by a prison sentence not to report gay people – which is still slightly better than what the bill originally proposed. The initial proposed bill suggested introducing the death sentence for anyone caught engaging in homosexual acts for a second time, as well as for gay sex where one partner is a minor or has HIV. While homosexuality was always illegal in Uganda, the new bill toughens penalties and also criminalises the public promotion of homosexuality. “I am officially illegal,” Ugandan gay activist Frank Mugisha said after the vote. The MP behind the bill, David Bahati, said “This is victory for Uganda. I am glad the parliament has voted against evil.” Others supporters echoed Bahati’s statement, saying the bill is needed to protect traditional family values, which they say are under attack from Western-inspired gay rights groups.

manila_mayor_AP_360x270Paging airport security: beef up your security. The mayor of a southern Philippines town was among four people killed in a shooting at a Manila airport Friday. Ukol Talumpa was killed together with his wife, an 18-month-old baby and one other person after a gunman opened fire outside of a terminal. The gunmen then escaped on a motocycle and disappeared into heavy Manila traffic. Talumpa had survived at least two earlier assassination attempts but it turns out that three times was the charm.

Jack KingstonNo soup for you! Or any type of food for that matter. Georgia Republican Rep. Jack Kingston plans to teach them that “there’s no such thing as a free lunch.” Complaining that the school lunch program for low-income students is too expensive and also sends the wrong message to society, Kingston asked a local Republican Party group, “Why don’t you have the kids pay a dime, pay a nickel to instill in them that there is, in fact, no such thing as a free lunch? Or maybe sweep the floor of the cafeteria…” Fellow Georgian Newt Gingrich made a similar statement in 2011 during his presidential campaign, when he suggested failing schools in low income neighborhoods “ought to get rid of the unionized janitors, have one master janitor and pay local students to take care of the school.” I guess the Georgia peach doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Mikhail-Khodorkovsky2It only took 10 years of rotting away in a Russian jail but now Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the former chairman of Yukos Oil and once Russia’s richest man, is free. In a surprise move, Russian President Vladimir Putin pardoned the former oil tycoon and his former political arch-nemesis. Khodorkovsky was released from a prison camp on Friday morning and did what any sane person would do and immediately got the hell out of Russia. Now safely in Germany, Khodorkovsky continues to maintain his innocence in a case that many consider a vendetta by Mr. Putin against a rival in business and politics. New York Times

Liar Liar: Gay Waitress Lied About Anti-Gay Tip (Among Other Things…)

Gay Waitress Tip

A gay waitress from New Jersey sparked national outrage after she accused a couple of leaving an anti-gay note in lieu of a tip. Plot twist: she’s a compulsive liar.

Dayna Morales, a server at Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater, claimed earlier this month that a family of four racked up a $93.55 bill and instead of leaving her a tip, left her a note saying they couldn’t leave any extra money because they “do not agree with your lifestyle.”

After Morales emailed the story to a gay advocacy group and posted a picture of the bill on Facebook, the story made national headlines and prompted people to donate thousands of dollars to the discriminated against waitress.

TipTurns out the whole thing was bullsh*t. The couple accused of stiffing her on the bill produced a copy of their Visa bill showing $111.55 – a nearly 20% tip – and no homophobic note. The wife also claimed that she is left-handed and could not have made the slash in the tip line AND they are both Chris Christie haters because of his stance on gay marriage. If that’s not proof, I don’t know what is!

“We’ve never not left a tip when someone gave good service, and we would never leave a note like that,” the wife, who wishes to remain anonymous, said.

Now, Morales’s frenemies are coming out of the woodwork to reveal her true personality and destroy any credibility she had left.

Other stories Morales has told include:

She was blown up by a land mine overseas and was the sole survivor of the explosion.

FALSE! Morales did serve in the Marines Corps reserve but never served overseas.

Her dad raped her and got her pregnant

FALSE! When people realized she wasn’t actually pregnant she said she had cervical cancer, which spread to the baby, killing it.

A boat tore through her living room during Superstorm Sandy.

FALSE! There was minor carpet damage.

After Morales got caught in her lie, she said she was going to give all the donations she received to the Wounded Warriors’ Project. She wouldn’t lie about that… oh wait.

Anyways, congratulations to Morales for simultaneously sullying the good name of women, the LGBT community, the Marine Corps, and the pristine state of New Jersey …no one likes New Jersey.
