The 20th annual meeting of the nation's second most powerful homosexual activist group is welcoming some new participants -- and a very recognizable sponsor.
The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force is holding its annual "Creating Change" conference in Detroit this week. Its sponsors claim to have trained more than 30,000 activists since 1988. Peter LaBarbera with Americans for Truth About Homosexuality has reported on the event in the past. "It's essentially a grassroots training conference for homosexual, bisexual, transgender -- and now, it turns out -- sadomasochistic activists," says LaBarbera.
The event originally focused on homosexuals, but has expanded to include individuals who are convinced that they were born into the wrong sex. The event's handbook even addresses "transgender restroom etiquette."
"It says that, 'Each of us can decide for ourselves in which bathroom we belong,'" LaBarbera points out. "And, so, I mean, this movement is now getting so crazy that they can choose their own gender and then the restroom that matches that."
And LaBarbera says he is not sure if he is more surprised by one of the sponsors of the event or by one of the activists who will be honored. "It's incredible to me," he continues. "But the Democratic Party is endorsing an event where they're actually presenting an award for sadomasochism."
A sponsorship acknowledgement notes that the Democratic National Committee gave at least $2,500 to help pay for the event. The recipient of the "Leather Leadership Award" is Guy Baldwin, a psychotherapist who has successfully lobbied against treating sadomasochism as a mental health problem.
In other news, AG Mukasey has announced the installation of a deluxe dungeon at DOJ headquarters, saying that his predecessor’s negative attitude toward sadomasochism hurt the DOJ’s efforts to recruit quality candidates.
There is more like this coming.
Whip it, Whip it good.
Maybe we missed the boat and should have classes of our own.

For those of you who aren’t going to vote in the general election, this is a taste of Demo culture that is on the way to your city.
Only a masochist would like this election. Even the Libs I’ve overheard are unhappy with these 3 candidates (McCain, Obama, and another Clinton co-presidency).
Then again all are sitting Senators at a time when Congress has approval numbers lower than Bush’s.
The Clintons don’t support the construction of rape rooms in the White House as they do support the construction of S&M “playrooms” there.

Ouch! That’s gonna leave a mark!
Democratic party presenting an award for sadomasochism.
Ouch! That hurts! lol
I was pretty shocked recently when that phrase came out of a toy my 3 year old was playing with.
this just seems related for some reason...
