What the fuck is Neptune?

Neptune is the God of the sea in Roman Mythology. That's his symbol. This chart is a satirical jab at all the different gender-identification terms the LGBT community has recently created.

But yeah, this shit is getting out of hand. I believe, however, that this is just a fad as it is now "cool" to be pro-LGBT. Businesses are catching on to this and are, very smartly, cashing in on it $$$$ and this is why we see this shit plastered everywhere.

Hopefully this fad dies down. I have nothing against gays, but I adamantly hate feminists and I can't help but feel these two groups feed off each other.

Here's a VERY important link for anyone who follows the issue.

It's not a coincidence that these people have suddenly become very prominent. They've gotten Billions of money funneled into their cause from some very rich people:

http://www.forbes.com/sites/clareoc...t-the-billionaires-backing-same-sex-marriage/

Damn, I am amazed at how much money these groups can raise:

Schultz might be taking a risk going all in on a divisive matter at a precarious time, just as the Supreme Court decides the future of same-sex marriage. Luckily, he’s in good company.

Many of his fellow members of the Forbes 400 rich list have not just spoken out in support of same-sex marriage, but opened their considerable wallets at the state level, helping with November’s equal rights victories. Others went a step further, founding their own super PACs (political action committees) during the last election cycle, providing infrastructure for their donations and fundraising.


The Seattle-based Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie cut a check for $2.5 million to Washington United for Marriage, a group funding Referendum 74, the same cause Schultz’s Starbucks backed. His donation helped secure a victory: same-sex marriage was legalized in November by a margin of 7.4%.


Fellow Seattle-area billionaires and Microsoft co-founders Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer also pitched in: $100,000 each.

As the New York Times first reported, it was an email from a former Amazon employee from the company’s early days that prompted Bezos and his wife to publicly back equal rights. Jennifer Cast, a lesbian mother of four, sent Bezos a note last Sunday asking for $100,000 towards Referendum 74. She received a reply two days later confirming his support and $2.5 million donation.

As my colleague Ryan Mac has reported, Silicon Valley’s tech billionaires have been vocal equal rights supporters as far back as 2008 and California’s Proposition 8.

That year, Google cofounders Larry Page and Sergey Brin publicly opposed Prop 8, the California voter initiative banning same-sex marriage. The two Google leaders contributed a combined $140,000 to the “No On 8″ campaign, which failed that November.

Billionaire tech titans who joined Page and Brin backing the No On 8 movement included Yahoo cofounder Jerry Yang, then-Google CEO Eric Schmidt, eBay founder Pierre Omidyar, former eBay president Jeffrey Skoll, former Cisco CEO John Morgridge and venture capitalist Michael Moritz.

Billionaire media mogul David Geffen, who is openly gay, also backed the movement against Proposition 8 in 2008, giving $100,000 to the No On 8 campaign.

Other openly gay billionaires who’ve long backed the legalization of same-sex marriage include Jon Stryker, heir to the Stryker Corp. medical supply fortune. Stryker gave $602,000 in 2010 to the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund.


Peter Thiel, the PayPal and Facebook billionaire, is also gay and has helped fund right-leaning LGBT group GOProud. In 2010, he hosted a GOProud event at his New York home that caused some consternation on the gay blogosphere for its host, Ann Coulter, who isn’t exactly known for her liberal views on marriage rights.

Some Forbes 400 rich list members have, as Sen. Rob Portman did earlier this month, become backers of equal rights as a show of solidarity to their gay sons and daughters.

Perhaps the most prolific donor to the cause is not particularly well-known outside New York finance circles: hedge fund billionaire Paul Singer, who has given more than $10 million and counting.

Singer avoids the limelight more so than Bezos, but agreed to talk to the NYT’s Frank Bruni last year when he launched a pro-gay rights super PAC. The Republican billionaire pledged $1 million to start the group, and told Bruni his commitment stems from a cause close to home. He has a gay son, who married his partner in Massachusetts in 2o04.

Another billionaire backer of equal rights: Peter Lewis of insurance giant Progressive. Lewis himself is progressive in nature as well as name as the country’s highest-profile billionaire supporter of marijuana legalization. In an interview with Forbes in 2011, he revealed his main focus is drug reform, but the lifelong Democrat has donated to LGBT groups in the past. His son Jonathan is gay and a major Democratic fundraiser who gave $250,000 to the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund in 2008.

Real estate developer and conservative political donor Steven Roth is another billionaire with a personal stake in the issue: like Lewis and Singer, he has a gay son. He and wife Daryl both gave $16,800 to support the campaigns of Republican New York state senators who backed same-sex marriage.

Fellow Republican donor and billionaire Steven Cohen also backed New York’s gay marriage initiative, as did Singer. Another notable super-rich supporter of the successful New York equal rights bid: the city’s billionaire Mayor Mike Bloomberg, a vocal LGBT advocate for years.

Lately, Mayor Mike has been channeling his wealth and efforts towards combating gun crime, earmarking $12 million for an ad buy to help push gun control through Congress. He did, however, funnel $250,000 towards equal rights in Maryland, his home away from home (he attended Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore and is the college’s biggest donor by far).

The next generation of Forbes 400 members is getting in on the act too. Laura Ricketts, daughter of conservative Chicago Cubs billionaire Joe, co-founded LPAC, a super PAC focused on lesbian rights. Ricketts — the first openly lesbian owner of a major sports franchise — helped LPAC raise and spend well over $500,000 on key races in the 2012 cycle. Their largest donation went to Wisconsin’s Tammy Baldwin, who became the first openly gay U.S. Senator in history.


These aren't just wealthy people, these are really smart people too. So, why are they backing this?

Is it just going with the flow? A tax right off? I guess if you are a billionaire then dropping a couple hundred thousand or even a few million isn't that big of a deal, especially if you get political brownie points or greater connections or to attention whore or all of the above.

I do really wonder if these wealthy guys don't have some ulterior motive though. :dodgy:

They're getting far more brazen with it on commercials now. Tylenol just released a massive SJW commercial that has little to do with what the product actually does. Then there are two other brands that feature two gay men with an adopted Asian daughter. Looks like they got the idea from Modern Family.

My mom said to me that with all the gays you see now you'd think they were 50% of the population. Since the SJW's want to preach diversity and have things "representing the actual population" in everything, it's interesting how none of them over talk about the gross overrepresentation of LGBT in the media. We all know why.

Speaking of money, the world's highest paid 'female' executive is a transexual.

It's an understatement. My understanding is that lesbians were one of the groups behind(to discount the billionaires who funded it, for a moment) the rise of the militant, man-hating brand of feminism. I have heard currently that there's a lot of aggressive lesbians that like to hang out at feminists events looking for new prey.

Hell, you can't understimate how aggressive the lesbians are. I had a friend's ex who went through one of the battered woman assistance program and she said that there were a huge number of lesbians prowling in those programs who would make sexual advances on the women coming into the program.

I keep seeing this commercial, I think it is running on Hulu a lot:


I mean, they are really going out of their way to tug at the heartstrings and check all the emotional boxes. Adoption! Learning sign language! So brave! So beautiful! How could anyone be against this?

Also, the new season of Big Brother is going to feature it's first trans-gendered contestant. Society is making so much progress! If anyone actually watches that garbage show, I'd suggest tuning out at this point.

The language of the LGTBQ movement is so easy to mock because each constituent group has developed further distinctions in order to have its aggrieved status recognized (which is their worth within the SJW-sphere). And these distinctions, of course, require a new vocabulary. The degeneracy of the human species supplies the only limit on how the terms proliferate.

Here's a fine send-up of the meaningless symbols and phrases that the neon blob of tumblr has invented in the past few years.

Based on the snippet your posted, sounds like it's mostly for personal reasons, they're gay or have gay relatives so the personal is political for them as feminists used to say in the 70's.

Otherwise I'm not sure. Population control doesn't make sense. Fewer babies today means Starbucks sells fewer venti lattes in 10-15 yrs.



Also WB that Forbes typist Clare O'Connor :hump:

Although that's a factor, I think it's significantly more than just personal reasons.
It's simply the latest trendy liberal 'right on' cause in Western culture and for big business to not jump on that train as well, could well be perceived by the media as appearing "intolerant".
Also, it's an excuse to get their names out there in the public consciousness, spinning their "positive" message to the masses, who lap it up unquestioningly.

First off: That snippet is only a small fraction of the billionares who've been pumping money into the cause. There's a lot of big names on that list who historically have shied away from public attention.

Second it's entirely deliberate. It's not about jumping on a bandwagon, because they created said bandwagon. If you dig into the donations a little bit you notice that the donations started a few years before LGBT "rights" became a mainstream issue.

The end goal is to destroy the connections between biological parents and their offspring, so that offspring can be raised entirely by the state. They're literally trying to bring back the Spartan education system.

Didn't Croatians vote "no" for gay marriages a while ago? List wouldn't have much sense if they did it and yet they are so high on the list.

Better question: who publishes this list? What exactly does it measure, and how does it propose to do so?

When you ask those questions it becomes apparent what this document is. It has nothing to do with objectivity, and the percentage point assignments are entirely arbitrary. It's trying to give a scientific patina to what is a subjective and political statement.
