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.”

Seriously? There's denial, and then there's this.

I EXIST, DAMMIT. Don't tell me I don't, because I definitely do.

And here I thought it was people named Harvey who were supposedly imaginary.

Well then, prove that there are such things as Christians. By their behavior? By their professed feelings? Hmm. Sounds like the same criteria one might use to show that LGBT persons exist.

Delusional fuckwit.
Nothing more to say.

Well. I see three, logical, meanings to this.

First: The usual "Nobody is really gay/lesbian/bi/transgendered", they just think they are. It is a lifestyle, not a biological reality.

The problem is, of course, that it almost certainly isn't a choice. And even if it were, there is no objective reason to say that it is a choice that should be attacked.

Second: She is implying that gay people aren't human.

The problem with that should be obvious.

Third: She actually thinks gay people don't exist. That is, people who make the "choice" to be gay don't exist. Not likely as I find the chances of someone being that stupid minuscule.

The problem with that is... even more obvious than the last one. Maybe.

I used to believe that people with a negative IQ didn't exist. Then Linda Harvey proved me wrong.

We're here, we're queer, get used to it?

So you're saying that there are people who have sex with people of the same gender, or who actually have their genders changed, but they aren't gay, bi, or transexual?

Well you know what, there is no such things as Christians. There are just people who go to church every Sunday as a lifestyle choice.

Is this dingbat serious? WTF is wrong with these people that they can't just live and let live?

LGBT people exist. I'm glad they do. They tend to be nicer than Linda Harvey and Co.

So Rachel Maddow and Neil Patrick Harris are imaginary? So my best friend's fiancee isn't real?

... and the Moon landings were faked, Kennedy was assassinated by the Mafia, Elvis is still alive and working in a car wash in Minnesota and all the Jews were warned beforehand to evacuate the Twin Towers before Israel flew planes into them to make everyone hate Muslims. Oh, yeah, and the Navy accidentally shot down TWA Flight 800 with a mistakenly-launched SAM, then covered it up. I was told all of this by a huge invisible rabbit. His name was Harvey, too.

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

But they obviously exist! How can you say that there is no such thing as an LGBT human being when there are so many LGBT individuals out there?


Oh. . .

It's not that there aren't LGBT individuals don't exist. Anyone with have a brain can see that. It's gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transexuals aren't really human beings!

They're all Reptilians. Obviously.

Someone call David Icke, we need to tell him that Linda Harvey has discovered a key part of the Reptilian plot!

Wait, what? I don't exist? Then WHO IS THAT IN THE MIRROR? AHHHHHHHHHH!

Seriously, some of these people need a reality check.

This better be a fake...

That's like saying atheists/liberals/etc don't exist.

I'm not sure what the argument is here. Is it her contention that gay people are just straight people in denial, who have chosen to be gay? In that case, it's hardly accurate to say that they don't exist.

No proof? Hey, I've got a hard drive filled with more then enough proof.

Someone has clearly never surfed Google images- about literally anything, with safesearch off.

How to change oil on a Rotax 912? Gay porn.

Cruise liners in the Carribean? Nasty gay porn.

Traditional Hapsburg cutlery? DEAR GOD MY EYES ARE BLEEDING



[size=12]-Oh the Horror.[/size]

Case in point. And that's not to say the hetero stuff isn't as awful either.

But DAYUM, girl, you CRAZY! Saying Gays don't exist makes anything you say before or after that instantly invalid.

Just how frightening can reality be for some people? Very, judging by Linda Harvey's startling confession of quaking fear and her consequent retreat into babbling delusion. The problem is that when viewed from the huge distance she's put between her self and the real world, reality can seem alien and scary. But if you get up close and join in, it's not really so terrifying. It's actually quite fun.

Linda Harvey looks at this beautiful picture and says......



...."OH MY GAWD! THAT BABY'S LEVITATING IN MIDAIR ALL BY ITSELF!!!! HOW DOES IT DO THAT?!!!!"

Tough shit, bitch. We exist whether you like it or not. Too bad the same could be said for you and your guild of religious bigots.

So you flame her, but can any of you actually address the content of her statement?

Personally I view homosexuality as depravity for the sake of depravity. Far be it from me to tell someone what they can and cannot do with another adult capable of giving consent, but it just seems to me that the whole thing is just the human equivalent of pigs revelling in slop. A systematic challenge to ourselves as people to see who can debase our species as fragrantly as possible. It's disgusting, it's abnormal, and it's done purely for shock value.

This has been your daily reality check.

@ Alexa:

So you flame her, but can any of you actually address the content of her statement?

The content of her statement was essentially that LGBT individuals don't exist.

How would you like us to address her statement? What about the LGBT individuals on this site who have commented here? Aren't they refuting the content of Linda Harvey's statements just by pointing out that they exist?

Most of us have friends and acquaintances who are LGBT. It strikes me as odd that anyone would deny that they exist at all. Do you need us to prove to you that straight people exist too?

Personally I view homosexuality as depravity for the sake of depravity.

Well, okay. You're entitled to view it however you want. I don't think that being sexually attracted to another adult human being is depraved. And I don't think that feeling romantically attached to someone of the same gender is any more depraved than being romantically attached to someone of the opposite gender. If homosexuality is inherently depraved, then so is heterosexuality.

Far be it from me to tell someone what they can and cannot do with another adult capable of giving consent,

Good for you! You're absolutely correct here.

but it just seems to me that the whole thing is just the human equivalent of pigs revelling in slop.

Yeah! Two people in love is exactly the same as pigs rolling around in filth. I can't see any difference at all!

You plan on clarifying that analogy?

A systematic challenge to ourselves as people to see who can debase our species as fragrantly as possible. It's disgusting, it's abnormal, and it's done purely for shock value.

Wow. You don't know anything about gay people at all, do you?

Yes. Gay people have been willing to put up with being discriminated against simply for "shock value." Gay people want the right to get married simply for "shock value." Gay people want to be able to adopt kids simply for "shock value."
