A Tennessee town bans "public homosexuality"

Tonight they're gonna party like it's 1959

Yes, because we are less than human I'm guessing...

Murfreesboro has a population of over 150,000, so it's hardly a "town."

We should go there and have a "gay-in"

by Anonymousreply 3November 16, 2023 4:59 AM

More will follow.

Gays were too white to learn from the civil rights movement and we will suffer from not gatekeeping the community.

This law will not survive a court challenge. But it will make the Bible-belt folks happy for a minute.

Uh oh! Should we now make assumptions about the entire population of Tennessee and advocate bombing them?!

Such a shame. That town had a lot of potential!

My recollection of Mufreesboro was that despite having a good sized state university, it seemed like a dumpy exurb.

by Anonymousreply 8November 16, 2023 1:52 PM

Has a large state university. I doubt we are getting the whole story.

Yes, r6.

It's only femme queens and trannies they're after.

After long as you're masculine and straight acting, you'll get a pass.

Back when sodomy was illegal, I broke that law in Murfreesboro. Tennessee in general is filled with subhuman animals, aka Republicans, that deserve nothing but to be domestic servants.

They aren't even bright enough to be "pets"

This is good news. This is a public service. Well done dumpy town.

Now if you don’t donate all you can to the Dems , don’t get out and help register and drive people to vote, if you dont help hold fund raisers, if you don’t vote yourself you now know what is in store for the rest of your miserable being hunted lives.

This is a version of your future. The voters will decide if it’s a national picture or one dumpy town in tenn.

If the youngsters dont vote in large large numbers they will get exactly the govt they deserve.

They are famous for a great storytelling festival, drawing performers from around the world. Guess they’ll have to cancel that!

Exactly. Tennessee is not like the parts of the middle east where straight-passing men who are caught with straight-passing male partners get thrown from the rooftops. But they’re working on it!

Odd, because I occasionally get emails for gay weekend events happening in Mufreeboro.

by Anonymousreply 17November 16, 2023 4:52 PM

They’re trying to get rid of LGBT+ books in the public library. Did any of you read the article? But yes, people are tired of the LGBT movement.

R4 - is right that the LGBT+ community should have gatekeep more in order to prevent this. But gays made their beds by rocking the boat so now we’re going to have to suffer the consequence.

R18. Talk about blaming the victim, Roy Cohn!

by Anonymousreply 19November 16, 2023 5:55 PM


Oh no

It’s a trap don’t go. The last you will be seen is in a truck with armed guards heading to the new Mike Johnson Reeducation Camp.

You could be there for months until you lean to like pussy,

This isn’t the language of an anti-trans or self-hating gay man. This is the language of a homophobic troll who works for an anti-gay organization. He or she pretends to be a gay man, but forgot to use the correct possessive pronoun. Oops.

Time for very public displays of homosexuality. I’m in.

But not in public.

R20 I wasn't planning on it but they have a gathering at "Whispering Pines" every year.

by Anonymousreply 24November 16, 2023 6:50 PM

R18 thinks the problem is lack of "gatekeeping" and not the fact that fundies and the far right hate us, and always have. Look at the things Mike Johnson has been saying for the past 20 years. This is who Republicans chose to be their Speaker

Tip of the iceberg

What do the “throwing gayz off rooftopz” groupthink crowd say about this?

by Anonymousreply 27November 16, 2023 7:26 PM

You can be gay, just don't be too gay.

by Anonymousreply 28November 17, 2023 5:20 PM

You can now be gay in Murfreesboro again!
