Neil deGrasse Tyson on Aliens

Hawking is all worried that aliens might suck our brains out. That concern comes from the fact that when any of us explored the world with high technology ships and came upon a civilization less advanced, it was bad for the less advanced civilization. They either were completely wiped out or subjugated or enslaved or whatever, so I think his fear about aliens is a reflection of his actual knowledge of how humans treat each other, not real knowledge of how real aliens would treat us."

- Neil deGrasse Tyson

Suddenly her mom’s silence matched Jackie’s own. “Oh, my God,” she murmured in disbelief. “Are you gay?”

"Yeah," Jackie forced herself to say.

After what felt like an eternity, her mom finally responded. “I don’t know what we could have done for God to have given us a fag as a child,” she said before hanging up.

[…]

She got a call from her older brother. “He said, ‘Mom and Dad don’t want to talk to you, but I’m supposed to tell you what’s going to happen,’” Jackie recalls. “And he’s like, ‘All your cards are going to be shut off, and Mom and Dad want you to take the car and drop it off at this specific location. Your phone’s going to last for this much longer. They don’t want you coming to the house, and you’re not to contact them. You’re not going to get any money from them. Nothing. And if you don’t return the car, they’re going to report it stolen.’ And I’m just bawling. I hung up on him because I couldn’t handle it.” Her brother was so firm, so matter-of-fact, it was as if they already weren’t family.

You should read this Rolling Stones piece on Queer kids getting kicked out by their religious parents. And remember it.  (via fuckyeahdiomedes)

My cousin’s mother told him he was not welcome at their house until he turned away from the Devil’s ways.

His father told him he had been given sons by God not daughters and until he was a real man before God’s eyes he was not to come back home.

His brothers call him to tell him they hope he dies of AIDS and refer to him as their sister. They call him sis when they talk to him on the phone.

His father is the pastor of a fundamentalist church in Tampa, Florida.

These stories happen hourly and in the South, these kids are often on the streets for years.

Religion is killing our youth.

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting
