Comments Off on Evidence of same-sex attraction found in pheromone study.

Evidence of same-sex attraction found in pheromone study.

Posted by | May 4, 2014 | News

Article from examiner.com

From: http://www.examiner.com/

See the full article here: http://www.examiner.com/article/scientific-evidence-of-same-sex-attraction-found-new-study-pheromones-study

Researchers in China and at the University of Minnesota published a study on May 1st, where they found that humans produce chemical cues that communicate gender to members of the opposite sex. While knowledge of pheromones has been around for a long time, the new and intriguing finding shows that homosexual males responded to gender pheromones more like heterosexual females did.

In the new study, researchers asked males and females, both heterosexual and homosexual, to watch what are known as point-light walkers move in place on a screen. The point-light walkers consisted of 15 dots representing the head, pelvis, thorax, and 12 major joints in the human body. Participants in the study were tasked with deciding whether those digitally morphed gaits were more masculine or feminine. Individuals completed that task while being exposed to androstadienone (found in male semen and armpits), estratetraenol (identified in female urine), or a control solution.

Results revealed that heterosexual females were systematically biased toward perceiving walkers as more masculine when they smelled androstadienone during the exercise. As for heterosexual males, they were systematically biased toward perceiving walkers as more feminine when they smelled estratetraenol during the exercise. The groundbreaking piece of the study actually revolves around the findings from the lesbian, gay, and bisexual participants where researchers found that homosexual males responded to gender pheromones more like heterosexual females did. Bisexual or homosexual female responses to the same scents fell somewhere in between those of heterosexual males and females.

“When the visual gender cues were extremely ambiguous, smelling androstadienone versus estratetraenol produced about an eight percent change in gender perception,” explained Wen Zhou of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

“The results provide the first direct evidence that the two human steroids communicate opposite gender information that is differentially effective to the two sex groups based on their sexual orientation,” the researchers wrote in Current Biology.

Is this the scientific evidence needed to prove that same-sex attraction is genetic? While no DNA evidence currently exists, this is definitely a giant scientific step in that right direction.

GQ Germany, Straight Male Celebs Kissing Against Homophobia

Posted by | December 14, 2013 | News

From: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/12/12/mundpropoganda-german-gq_n_4432878.html?ir=Gay+Voices

In an exclusive photo shoot for the January edition of German GQ Gentlemen’s Quarterly, 13 straight male German stars have come together to make a bold statement against homophobia.

Titled “#Mundpropaganda – gentlemen against homophobia,” the campaign aims to set an example for citizens to fight intolerance and disenfranchisement of members of the lesbians, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

The word mundpropaganda means “word-of-mouth propaganda” in German.

mundpropaganda 1

“The intolerance that still confronts homosexuals is appalling. With #Mundpropaganda, we want to send a clear message against intolerance and for a free society, as well as calling on people to share that thought,” German GQ Editor-in-Chief José Redondo-Vega said in a statement to The Huffington Post. “Straight men kissing –- that courage is totally admirable, especially for people who are in the public spotlight. The people who turned us down when we were looking for supporters for the initiative are proof that even in Germany, we still have a long way to go.”

Actor Wentworth Miller comes out publicly as gay man, rejects invite to film festival in Russia


Wentworth Miller, the actor best known for starring in the US television series Prison Break, has come out publicly as a gay man.

Miller, also a successful screenwriter, was invited to be a guest of honor at the St. Petersburg International Film Festival.

He turned down the invitation and cited Russia’s anti-gay laws as the reason.

‘As a gay man, I must decline,’ he wrote after thanking the festival for the invitation.

Miller said he has enjoyed visiting Russia in the past and also claims a degree of Russian ancestry.

He wrote that while ‘it would make me happy to say yes, I am deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government.’

He went on to write: ‘The situation is in no way acceptable, and I cannot in good conscience participate in a celebratory occasion hosted by a country where people like myself are being systematically denied their basic right to live and love openly.’

Miller concluded his letter by writing: ‘Perhaps, when and if circumstances improve, I’ll be free to make a different choice.’

Miller’s letter was shared by GLAAD which applauded his words.

‘Wentworth’s bold show of support sends a powerful message to LGBT Russians, who are facing extreme violence and persecution: you are not alone,’ said GLAAD spokesman Wilson Cruz.

‘As people from across the globe continue to speak out against Russia’s horrific law, more celebrities and corporations should follow his courageous lead in openly condemning Russia’s anti-LGBT law.’

Comments Off on Gay marriage supporter Kevin Rudd becomes Australia’s prime minister

Gay marriage supporter Kevin Rudd becomes Australia’s prime minister

Posted by | June 26, 2013 | News

From http://www.gaystarnews.com

Kevin Rudd has defeated Julia Gillard in a snap election of the Labor caucus to become new party leader and Australia’s prime minister.

It comes just weeks after he announced his personal support for gay marriage equality in the country – saying he had previously been a ‘dinosaur’ on the issue.

And he is now facing calls from LGBT campaigners in the country to take action to deliver same-sex marriage equality in the country.

Rudd was previously prime minister from December 2007 to June 2010 but was defeated by Gillard.

Within the last few minutes Rudd won the new election by 57 votes to Gillard’s 45.

With Australia heading to the election, Labor still looks likely to be defeated by the Coalition headed by Liberal Party leader Tony Abbot. He remains steadfastly against gay marriage equality, refusing to even allow his Members of Parliament a free vote on the issue.

But the 102-strong Labor caucus took the widely-held view the party’s support would grow with Rudd back at the helm.

Throwing down the gauntlet earlier today, Gillard had pledged to retire from politics if she lost.

Australian Marriage Equality national director, Rodney Croome, said marriage equality advocates will seek a meeting with Rudd to discuss the future of the reform.

Croome: ‘Having a prime minister who supports marriage equality opens up a new chapter in the debate by mainstreaming and legitimizing the reform like never before.

‘Kevin Rudd’s support for marriage equality will be an important point of difference with Tony Abbott, increasing pressure on Mr Abbott to allow a conscience vote and bringing marriage equality to the center of the federal election campaign.

‘Mr Rudd’s stance will also draw young voters to the Labor Party and galvanize the Labor grassroots behind him, given that both groups strongly support this reform.

‘The majority of Australian Christians will also welcome a Christian Prime Minister who represents their support for marriage equality.’

Community Action Against Homophobia are demanding Rudd bring on legislation for equal marriage rights and hold his party to a binding vote to get it passed immediately.

The demand came from Cat Rose who is CAAH co-convener and National Queer Officer of the country’s National Union of Students.

She said: ‘Rudd says he’s had an epiphany since he was last prime minister – well a change of heart is always welcome but the fact remains that he spent several years as a homophobic prime minister who stood in the way of equal rights.

‘He has to make amends and that can only be done by getting equal marriage laws through parliament as a matter of urgency. Whatever else is before parliament, a significant step forward for civil rights has to take priority.

‘The majority of Australians have been years ahead on this issue, we’ve only been waiting for parliament to catch up. It is a huge thing to have for the first time a prime minister who supports equal marriage rights – to not act would make Rudd a waste of space.’

Rudd announced his support for gay marriage in a blog post in May, citing the journey he had taken to change his mind on the issue.

He admits within his family he has: ‘Long been regarded as the Last of the Mohicans on this one. The kids have long thought I’m an unreconstructed dinosaur for not supporting marriage equality legislation.’

In September, Rudd was against legalizing same-sex marriage in a parliamentary conscience vote.

But following a chat with an unnamed former political staff member, who revealed he was gay and that he had told his pastor he would like to get married one day to ‘another bloke’, Rudd began to reflect on his own Christian views on gay and lesbian marriage.

And he said: ‘I have come to the conclusion that church and state can have different positions and practices on the question of same-sex marriage. I believe the secular Australian state should be able to recognize same-sex marriage.’

Remove Gay Cure App from Google Play – Take Action Now

Posted by | June 5, 2013 | News

Cure yourself of being black, of being straight, of being white, of being gay, of having brown hair. How would you feel if there where apps for all of those?

Apple have removed one such app from iTunes recently (although many are many are complaining that it should never have been published as it is easily defined as ‘hate-media’) , however Google have left the ‘Gay Cure’ application on their Play store. Please read on to see how you can help.

The majority of people come to realise that you don’t get to decide whom you are attracted to, and that the ethics of an application like this are equivalent to producing an app claiming to ‘cure the heterosexuality’. However there are those whom evidently haven’t obtained such revelations, and create things like this.

It is hard for many individuals to grow up coming to terms with the fact that you’re not in the majority, whether that be due to race, colour, or sexuality, and that some people may dislike who you are through no fault of your own. It’s also well documented (1)* that growing up in an environment where there is a heterosexual norm, could very well be a reason for depression and suicide in many LGBT individuals. Hence, this app could easily contribute to self harm and suicide in LGBT individuals struggling to cope with whom they are . It’s intentions aren’t pure, and as said, can be defined as hate-media. The authors should be held responsible for any such outcomes, and Google should know better than to publish such applications.

There’s a petition to pressure Google to act more responsibly for its content  and remove the application. It’s evident by the amount of signatures (almost 100,000 already) gathered in such a short time that lots of people agree quite passionately. Usually Google are spot on with their operations, however we here at Pink Jobs think that they’ve slipped up this time.

Would ‘Cure the Blackness’ or ‘Cure the Straightness’ applications be published by Google as well?

Sign The Petition

Please visit https://www.allout.org/en/actions/gaycureapp to sign the petition and get this hate-application removed.

Kind Regards,

The PJ Team!
