America’s Lavender Scare

milkboys Film & TV, Films & TV 12 Comments

In the 1950s the U.S. government deemed federal workers who were homosexual to be security risks and began purging them from the workforce. A new documentary looks at how the policy played out over more than four decades.

The Lavender Scare is in theatres now.

  1. Is it not wonderful that no one today would lose their job because of whom they love? What went on back then is definitely a thing in the past because today we are as wise as we are kind and tolerant. Happy pride month everyone! Now you can be whom you truly are!!1

    1. If only. In many parts of America it still happens, mostly in businesses, large and small, owned by right-wing religious people. Don’t even try to work for the Catholic Church! Not that any sane person would want to associate themselves with that criminal enterprise.

      1. I’m catholic. Your catholicophobia is offensive and makes me sad. I thought milkboys was a safe space for everyone, but apparently not.

        1. “Your catholicophobia is offensive ”

          First, tough shit. Second, there’s no such thing as either: catholicophobia or even that stupid made-up word.

          Your religiosity is offensive not only to me, but to every other common-sense and reasoning thinking person in the world.

          Again, don’t like it? tough shit. Religious privilege ends with me.

          1. All words are made up by humans. Catholicophobia is probably more common than most social phobias. Sure is more real than so-called ‘islamophobia’.

  2. And now the Pope says transgenders are unnatural, that God WDNE created men and women, not Edam and Cheese.

    1. LGB is pretty much settled, but T will remain controversial until the shrinks and the nerds and the docs do the research, and arrive at a consensus conclusion completely bereft of any and all political correctness, social justice, and religious consideration. For the sake of credibility there can be no accommodation whatsoever of any agenda on either side.

      1. “until the shrinks and the nerds and the docs do the research”

        They already have. Stop being so fucking stupid and LAZY and actually, READ IT.

      2. “conclusion completely bereft of any and all … religious consideration”

        Are you fucking serious? The stupid irony of you writing that. Without the fucked-up religions [i.e., churches], there wouildn’t be any arguments.

        1. There will always be arguments. Religions are just a vehicle allowing people so inclined to exercise their hate. Removing religion will never remove hate. Hate is a human condition and will always be a major problem whereever likeminded wankers find a method to club up and rejoice in hate.

          Talking of clubs and hatred — football is another classic example.

          For every sickening event the mantra is always trotted out ‘it’s only a minority’. Unequivocally, football and religious shittery is what it is. Never mind the naysayers – if you are a football supporter or espouse a religion then you are a dodgy person until proved otherwise.

  3. This site if for all and any. Even this writer can come to this site and write. What do write is what many here write about and actually complain to site managers as worse than nonsense.
    — Ever wonder what your niebors really think about you ? This alley cat does find out. Curiosity does not yet kill this cat but does it harm till it runs away and finds a new home.
    — The video shows and tells of how nonsense is a create as well as it can be a flaw. The making of Homosexuality as a sever of law is absurd. But people, loving sex, believe it. Burning witches is entertaining. Mix Homosexuality with Communism and you get a good poison brew to kill with. There is the public with its adoring hates. Am not immune to such hates. YES ! BABY ! Do BELIEVE ! . — Until learning, later. Now am a pervert and a sex freak who hates the lgbt&c. Some hate back. With out the leaders of gay liberating, would not be able to be here. With out the Hippy Prism Flag “We All Be Different But We Are All ONE Under One Sun ” idea, this cat be dead. — It is not only a LAVENDER SCARE. Now a days it is the scare of sex and terrorism and guns. Not new ? Okay. Recombobulating nonsense. Every cop has a gun but not you. You are a pervert and thus a terrorist. All terrorists are perverts. NAMBLA is a hate of the lgb&c and the public. Your kids are at stake. ha ha ha — Now there is the terror of climate change.
