Quote# 83937

Linda Harvey, the founder of Mission America, says that LGBT people don’t exist. She made the comments during her weekend broadcast while she was attacking the Gay, Lesbian, And Straight Education Network.

Harvey was particularly perturbed by the GLSEN Sports Program which works towards “creating and maintaining an athletic and physical education climate that is based on the core principles of respect, safety and equal access for all students, teachers and coaches regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.”

Harvey believes there is no need for such a program because according to her, there is no proof that LGBT people exist.

Harvey: “There’s one big fact that’s not backed up. There is no proof that there’s ever anything like a gay, lesbian or bisexual or transgendered child, or teen or human. One of the other things you’re gonna see as I mentioned is a big campaign GLSEN’s gonna roll out this year calling for ‘respect,’ respect! Not just for people, but for homosexual lifestyle. The PR campaign to hold up gay as a good thing: the lifestyle, not the person, because there are no such humans.”

Agahnim, she claim's it's a label, a behaviour, not a thing. Then happily declares herself a "conservative" "christian" without any irony.

I also find it hard to believe there are people who are left handed and/or have green eyes.

Prager walks up to her and delivers a sharp slap across the face.
"HERE I AM", he shouts.

Easy to laugh about. If LGTB people don't exist, why attacking them?(I learnt it from the president of Iran)

Taking denial to a whole new level...

I'm not quite sure what to say to this, but here goes nothing. You can't have it both ways, sweetie. We queerfolk either exist or we don't. You can't just change this fact depending on whether the implications and technicalities of our existence inconveniences your tirade against us.

...and you do realise that by claiming we don't "exist," you just admitted you've been tilting at windmills like a fool all along, right?

Well. This is weird. It's a common fundie argument that people "choose" to be gay. Assuming we were to accept that argument, how can you choose to be something that doesn't exist?

More proof that reality is an alien concept to these people.

I think you are now the most petulant person in the world.

WTF?!!!
I guess neither does testosterone or estrogen either. Or male and female.
Seriously, that's how idiotic you sound lady!!

So I don't exist? Does this mean I don't have to pay taxes anymore? Cool :D

I doubt there is such a thing as a Christian, it is just a lifestyle and there are no humans that are it. (I don't really mean that but it is what she is saying about LGBT)

You are stupid lady, really really stupid. Just don't open your mouth again..okay thanks.

Please define 'the lifestyle.'

Then it's OK to have same sex marriage, because without any gay people, nobody will take advantage of it.


Although you have to wonder, if there are no gay people, who is it demanding the right to marry?

Just because you don't like it doesn't mean it doesn't exist numb-nutz.

"Linda Harvey, the founder of Mission America, says that LGBT people don’t exist."

Yeah, in your dreams of the American Reich, no doubt.

Fortunately, you and your ilk will never hold the requisite political or military power to see that happen.

Yeah, right, and trees don't exist either!

Harvey was particularly perturbed by the GLSEN Sports Program which works towards “creating and maintaining an athletic and physical education climate that is based on the core principles of respect, safety and equal access for all students, teachers and coaches regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.”

How dare they provide an educational experience that provides respect, safety, and equal access to everyone? Seriously, do these idiots ever step back and see how they sound to everyone else? This is almost as bad as the quote from the guy claiming that bullying is good.

There is no proof that there’s ever anything like a gay, lesbian or bisexual or transgendered child, or teen or human.

Is this just like the fundies who claim that there are no atheists? Are you just trying to hide your head in the sand and pretend that the icky people you don't like really don't exist?

Didn't Ahmadinejad already do this? 0/10 for originality.

9/23/2011 6:34:30 AM

Mudak

@toth, not quite. I thought that at first. Ahmedinejad said that there are no gays in Iran. That's not quite the same as saying they don't exist at all.

I actually find this level of denial funny... or at least I would, if I didn't already know that this strategy is part of a calculated ploy. Fundies are well aware that discriminating against people for something integral to their being and cannot be changed is the most depraved form of bigotry, so it is absolutely NECESSARY for them to deny that anyone is compelled to be LGBT, if they care at all about their public image. This is disgusting.

Well, that explains the feeling of non-existence I've been having today!
