    Is brown the new gay?

    Posted by: Chris

    Immigration equality banner gay immigration rights binational couples
    Meet the new scapegoats for social conservatives in this country:

    In its perversion of the professed conservative desire for checks on government intrusion, the [new Arizona immigration] law evokes the McCarthy era's war on so-called sex deviants. That reign of error in the early Cold War, as historian David Johnson documents in his 2004 book Lavender Scare, focused the resources of the federal state on thousands of trained and taxpaying workers. It succeeded in ferreting out hundreds of homosexuals and served them up as trophies to placate the prejudice and grand-standing ambitions of a few Congressional overseers. …

    The past is not the only guide toward greater solidarity with immigrants. One would think an entire decade of antigay ballot measures that played on stigma and bigotry to ban recognition of same-sex partners' freedom to marry would make the gay community staunch foes of anti-immigrant bias and its deployment in state law. That is mostly the case, in part because thousands of LGBT people are themselves immigrants or have partners or family members who must navigate the exploitation, suspicion, ignorance, and outright hate that greets immigrants, undocumented and otherwise.

    Let's be sure to stand up for them (or us, for our gay Latino amigos) the way we want to be defended ourselves. Not to mention that we desperately need the support of groups like LULAC and La Raza to make sure comprehensive immigration reform includes gay binational couples so that gay Americans can sponsor their partners for residence here and not be forced into "love exile."

      My name is Raj,I study at the University of Queensland Australia and stay at the hostel of QLD univ.I was straight before i came here,I am 20 yrs old.My parents are very strict and now I feel free as a bird to do the things I like.Becuse of my boyish looks ,tanned body and atheletic frame boys and men follow me and kiss me ,hug me,before I was very shy and am getting bolder and less inhibited.I allow guys for hugging kissing mastrubating and sucking,but no anal sex.I really wish to meet people like Chris,or other gay leaders to come and meet me at the hostel.I HATE THE WORDS GAY BUT GUYS WHO KNOW HOW TO MAKE A VIRGIN BOY CUM ALIVE WITH JOKES AND GOOD PLOYS ARE WELCOME.One twink came to my room and introduced as Ron,the first time he hugged and kissed me the next two times he took me around Brisbane in his car and got me drunk .The third time he took me home and while serving me with drinks he purposely poured some ketchup on my pants.So I had to remove my pants.he helped me saying he was sorry and rubbed the ketchup off my groin with a small towel.all the time carefully caressing my penis till I got a hard on .Then he removed my pants to wash it and kept kissing my penis through my undeware and then sucked my thighs and buttocks and navel that I began to give in to his smart tatics.I like guys who dont hurry and do it differently without knowing you are having sex you get simply involved.Like to meet innovative loving caring boys and guys like him.

      It's amazing that these arguments are still being played out through government. You'd have thought that over the course of a few hundred years these very basic ideas would have been fixed by a government.
      I'm afraid that this is only going to get worse, as employers seek cheaper labour and the employment market contracts further.

      I hate to point out the obvious, but all illegal aliens should be deported immediately. This is not a civil rights issue but an issue of the rule of law.

      People have expectations, desires and even dreams of what marriage will be for them.

      Strong-armed to power in a sad display of one-party control of state governance, the law compels police to investigate the citizenship status of ordinary Arizonans. For advocates of LGBT rights, in and outside the gay community, the law holds troubling parallels with some of the worst chapters of recent U.S. history.

      Pushing through on something worth a fight is the best thing to do. Having been in the turmoil of individual difference among social or sexual orientation has been an issue ever since. This is a world created by love. Let us respect one another despite of their race, gender, color, religion. This is really a brave attempt. More power and hope things will push through.

      You are too intelligent? How do you come across such topics and how do you go about, that you do not miss out on any angle or even the intricate factors of this subject. I am quite a fan of yours now.

      I live in AZ, and yes, I agree with you that "brown is the new gay" in many ways. Sad that we always need to be picking on some group of people that seem different from ourselves, when we are actually all one.

      I think that Gingrich for a moment allowed himself to be a classical conservative in the

      Burkean tradition and revealed the tension between this and a more libertarian stance. He

      was impolitic but quite reasonable.
