How do you mess up the launch of Pokémon? All people want to do is pick it up and play. Which is exactly how Niantic and Nintendo screwed this up.
Children in gay adoptions at no disadvantage – Health News – Health & Families – The Independent.
Not surprising, really. But then, don’t let the research get in the way of your bigotry! Especially people like commenter grey_rage, who is the greatest colossal fucktard of the week with this comment:
Bigots like me see the catholic church full of gays interfering with children, they see gay ministers and the well placed visiting childrens homes to access vulnerable young boys to gratify their own perverted desires. Bigots like me also remember the likes of peter tachel out side schools giving out leadlets. I remember him trying to get the age of concent reduced or abolished and speaking about sex with nine year olds. Perhaps those are just a couple of reasons we bigots feel the way we do.
Past in Flames is a Magic the Gathering card. A pretty awesome one. Really, I like the name; it conjures up all sorts of images in my head, fiery spells and igniting thoughts.
Right now, the other image that comes to my mind is; Northern Ireland is the past in flames. People, so enraged by a past, by ancestors that don’t matter, that they burn the present.
Cue Translink, with their mysterious ‘signalling problems’ to make a rainy morning even worse. I honestly received the most unprofessional service possible today by Translink. You need to do so much better.
Why do Translink have no backup for crucial signalling systems failing during the rush hours? Why did the trains fail to stop at Adelaide for approximately an hour today? These questions still remain unanswered.
Read the article to hear my experience with their shocking service, and share. It’s the only way they’ll get better.
Last night was the 2nd Annual “GLYNI Presents: Hymn or Us” event at Belfast Pride, and this year, keeping with the religious connections for the last year, the specific topic this time around was “To what extent should religion influence education?” with the obvious focus being on LGBT affairs!
Tonight, Europa Hotel played host to the annual Belfast Pride Amnesty International lecture, as part of Pride Week. I was at the event and, for those of you unlucky to miss it, I thought I’d take some notes and write up the meat of the discussion, and my two pennies on the issues raised. It’s also the first time in a while that I’ve thought back to my own difficult period, one I rarely talk about from when I was around 14 and 15, where I was involved briefly online with such a ‘cure’ support network.
