Be Gay, Do Crime

Valerie Rice | June 6, 2021

Once upon a time a few days ago, our new favorite Uncle Grandpa decided that June of 2021 could be National Pride Month. Cool. Thanks? But did you know that once upon a before time (as in, before it was cool) being gay was a crime and the original pride was a mother fucking riot? Yeah, it was, so TODAY we are going to talk about why you should go ahead and be gay and do crime.

TRANS POWER

Let us look a bit at the 1969 Stonewall rebellion, which started when police raided a bar in New York City that served as a “safe” space for members of the community. Now, it is important to note that this space was run by the mafia and was kept “safe” under threat. Life was miserable for the community, and so having had enough, our foremothers picked up a brick and picked a fight. All hail Marsha P. Johson and Sylvia Rivera, the women of color who decided that the time to fight back had come. In true White Supremacist fashion, the police force decided to use tear gas, barricades, arrests, and violence to force people to stop existing “improperly.” For more information, and a bunch of cool pictures, click here. 

PROGRESS?

It was a few years later that the American Psychological Association decided that it was a good idea to remove homosexuality from the DSM (diagnostic and statistical manual for mental disorders) or to basically state that it was no longer a metal illness. I mean, it was 1973, so the sexual revolution had opened their minds a bit. Much like cracking a window in a crowded car, a few people were able to breathe a bit easier. This did nothing for the transgender community, and it did not prevent the abusive practice of conversion therapy which continues today. For a little glimpse at their logic, click here.

CRIMINAL ACTIVITY

Now, before you think that all this was a long time ago and that things are better now, I want you to be aware of the fact that consensual acts between homosexuals are illegal in the military and also in a lot of places across the country. I am talking about sodomy laws. No, they do not apply solely to instances of abuse. They were written as church based moral codes and transferred over into legislation. It matters. A lot. Every time a homosexual couple in the military celebrates their anniversary, they have the potential of being court martialed. Look up article 134 of the uniform code of military justice, which can be used to punish individuals for anything considered sexual deviance. Also, please click here to see why these laws need to be abolished, whether people think they are important or not. 

FINAL THOUGHTS

ACAB, we do not want you at pride. Keep your rainbow capitalism to yourself. Target’s pride line isn’t for melanin deficient skin. Chick-fil-A is run by cult members who actively support anti- LGBTQ+ legislation; if you eat there I will judge (and possible despise) you now that you know about it. (I do not eat hate sammiches.) BE GAY, DO CRIME! Oh, and Be Well!
