Facebook Supports Homophobic Anti-Maskers, Indian Government Stops Film by Gay Soldier, Ryan Field Books

Facebook Supports Homophobic Anti-Maskers

This is the truth, and it happened to a  good friend of mine. For years on Facebook, my friend posted nothing but things about recipes and bipartisan topics. I can safely say that she’s never been political and she’s remained true to LGBTQ issues. As far as I know, she’s never offended anyone and she’s never caused anyone harm. If you knew this person you would know she wouldn’t do that under any circumstances. However, recently this friend of mine was restricted on Facebook for replying to a comment by a mean conservative woman on Facebook. The mean woman is an anti-masker and she made a comment condemning masks. This anti-masker said she’s suffering with masks,  and my friend told her that she’d like to send her to Ukraine to see some real suffering. 

And that was it. Facebook restricted my friend’s account for that one thing and Facebook supported the anti-masker (who is also homophobic from what I gather). And it reminds me of the days when Facebook was restricting accounts for gay content, especially drag queens. They used to do it all the time, especially to authors who write gay romance books. Some homophobic Christians would report a book or a Facebook post that talked about something gay or LGBTQ, and they would immediately get some kind of restriction. 

I don’t really take much stock in Facebook as far as book promotion goes. I know a few people who do support authors, but for the most part, I have never had many sales or shares from Facebook and I’ve been on Facebook since it started. I can tell from my stats here in google blogger where I get most of my hits, and Facebook is the least of them. The ONLY reason why I bother with Facebook now is that I have a few long-time friendships there I would hate to lose. I care about those internet friends. I just feel bad for my friend for being censored this way and for not really doing anything harmful at all. 

So I honestly don’t care what Facebook does, but I did want to share this story, for anyone who’s interested, that Facebook is pro-anti-masker and that they will support anti-maskers and homophobes over people who are defending safety, human rights, and science. 

Indian Government Allegedly Stops Film by Gay Soldier

As if we don’t have it bad enough with straights stealing our culture and making films with gay content from a straight POV, now they are allegedly censoring a gay soldier in India because “the portrayal of a soldier as gay is illegal” there. We should all be outraged by this. Not one single gay man alive should think this is okay. 

Because it involved a former service member, Onir submitted that part of the script for approval by the Defense Ministry in accordance with Indian regulations. The ministry rejected it, effectively halting production.

Here’s more. It’s supposed to be a queer love story and I would love to see it. It’s a much longer article and I suggest reading it in full, especially those of you who just love gay films that come from a striaght POV, with actors that are gay for pay.
