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.”

So what's all the fuss about denying people the right to marry people they love?

Or to put it simply, Linda Harvey does not exist.

Just what is the point of defending a lifestyle that no one actually lives?

Also, last I checked, I am a human. So you're wrong.

wow, negationism applied to lgbt

kind of a big mindscrew to tackle before breakfast, to be honest.

Be afraid. Be very afraid. >:D

We Atheists think. Therefore we exist. LGBT people think. Therefore LGBT people exist.

Fundies don't. Right-wing Fundamentalists like you are actually Paulians, masquerading as Christians. Therefore you don't exist, Linda. Q.E. and D.

If sexual orientation is a lifestyle choice, does it mean straight people don't exist either?

9/23/2011 8:47:06 AM


I honestly wish she thought that nobody was having queer realtionships, and it was all media propaganda or something. That would be hillarious.

But no, it's the old fundy argument of everybody is acctually hetero and we are just in denial or some shit. I was considering emailing her and relating exactly what it's like to grow up trying to be straight, but really, what the fuck would it accomplish? I doubt you can post private emails to fstdt, and that would be all it's good for.

Biance Freire, nonexistant and hotter than you.

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

So even if I existed, I still wouldn't be human?

9/23/2011 9:12:05 AM


Yoohoo! Ms. Harvey! LGBT Brit over here! I'm B, if anyone's wondering, and I'm pretty "meh" over both my gender and that of others.

Reminds me of the sixteen year old gay kid I went to high school with. Damn kid said he was gay, though his lifestyle was identical to everyone else's. So that's what the gay lifestyle is!

So, if I became gay, I would be invisible? What with the not existing, and all. I could totally get into that; I could walk into banks and take their money because they couldn't see me. And afterwards have gay sex on a pile of $100 bills.
Why did no one ever tell me that? I'm sure that would be a strong selling point in gay-recruitment efforts.

And still reality refuses to bend to your will. After all this time too. Reality sure is a stubborn beast. It's enough to drive you insane isn't it?

Elton John. And he is married to a man. David Bowie is I believe bi sexual. And both my ex girlfriends are bi sexual. They exist and deserve all the same rights as heterosexuals

We believe you when you have engaged in homosexual lifestyle, Ms Harvey. If anyone can refrain from homosexual lifestyle, then anyone must also be able to take up a homosexual lifestyle.

There is about as much proof that there is anything like a gay, lesbian, bisexual or trans-gender person, as there is proof that there is anything like a religious person.

It's probably easier to change your religion than your sexual orientation.

9/23/2011 9:53:37 AM


So, she's saying they aren't human?

Someone ballgag her so we don't have to listen to this garbage.


(there's some proof, the medical history of sex reassignment surgery. feel free to mailbomb Linda with more!)

I guess there were too many of her ilk claiming that there are no such things as atheists, so she took a slightly different route to get her name out there.

There are websites full of evidence for the existence of lesbians.

Sexy evidence.

9/23/2011 10:08:11 AM


First of all, a simple Google search for "gay porn" or some such will give you an effectively infinite amount of proof that LGBT people exist.

Secondly...you don't believe in things without proof, Linda? Really? Are you sure?

I worked for GLSEN for a while, what a great organization.

Also, shut your mouth, Linda. I'm definitely a lesbian (young) adult, I was a lesbian teen, and I was a lesbian child. So shhhh.

9/23/2011 10:20:08 AM


Is it possible that the word salad is a convoluted way of saying that GLBT people aren't human? Apparently she thinks that children and teens aren't human either.

9/23/2011 10:45:34 AM

= POPE =

I smell brain farts.

Seriously, Linda? Meet me at the graveside of Casper the Friendly Boy and we'll have a nice chat about what does and does not exist.

Accept no substitute!

9/23/2011 10:57:46 AM


Pretty sure my lady and I exist kthx. We think, and are made of various sorts of matter, and are detectable with the basic senses, and everything.
