Mamma, don’t let your daughters grow up to marry gay cowboys.

Yearning to be on top.

Brock Turner and Omar Mateen both share a domination mindset.

Only women who are nuns get religious liberty?

Some folks try to use their own religious rights to tramp down everyone else’s.

  • Gay marriage: No cake-baking for gay weddings if you’re against homosexuality

Homophobes Aroused by Gay Porn

Homophobia 2You’d think homophobic men would be the least likely to get aroused by homoerotic images.
