    Nice to hear and not surprising since UQAM is one of the most progressive campuses in Canada.

  2. Interesting and look forward to hear further on findings they encounter in their research into the impacts of homophobia

    Hopefully, PN will follow up on this – another great story …

  3. All they need to do is take out a subscription to the Daily Mail.

  4. I have to say it’s about bloody time homophobia was put under the microscope and properly examined.
    I think we all know where most homophobia stems from and this will help collate the evidence to once and for all to place the blame where it so obviously belongs.

    1. Isn’t it a chicken and egg thing though? How will they establish which came first, homophobia or religion?

      1. I don’t see how It’s relevant to establish which came first when considering homophobia or religion, they now exist as a double act each feeding and providing convenient cover for the other.

  5. Great news, good for Canada.

  6. Am proud to be Canadian..

    Montreal is doing better with its human rights inniciatives, and must continue, But listen do not spend valuable time and money soley on study hatred which is what homophia is, you dont need a brains surgeion or a scientist , Listen to me carefully, and then brainstorm and disect past evils and implementations of hatred and bigotry from the past reflect off of the white biggots who enslaved minorities and th own white wives in the house without a voice, and stole thier inventions and made a rich life for themselves off of slavery, and abuse of others, Listen to me who are your bigots, top senators, mostly republicans but i have found out it goes deeper than that too, their are some blue devils like theire are red devils full of darkness and malice bigotry, there just seems to be more red devils than blue, but in other word racist are just evil people indivindual and groups bad kids taught by bad parents are bad religions or clicks are clubs the truth is their ignorance if asked is duh!

    Listen pay attention who are the racist and biggots, then disect their personal lives, you will find bad marriages, no marriages , devorces, and high crimes and corruptions and twisted religions in every single racist life, one of these are in effect are more, they are secret closeted obbsesed with gay sex, and want to have it, and dont want others to find out about it, so they sneak around and hide it, like philip hinkle , eddie long, ted haggard, the peurto rico senator and senator craig , all have wive and children, all carrry big bibles under their arms, all shout they are christians, and all belong to a hate twised hipocrital religiion, its must not be tolerated , they are not homphobic, They are just hippocrites and liears and sneaky wicked people, same as history and now , the racest call minorities all kinds of names and like to think themselves better use to call them and still do animals monkeus and dogs, but the majority of them the men asn some women, chase minority women a

  9. carrie baker 25 Nov 2011, 6:28am

    You see its a jealous problem and an intimidation problem, you see in history the white men spent all of his time out back in the shacks raping colored women and other minority women and spent very little time paying attention to the white women at all except to take her out in public showing at kkk klan meeting and other evil holdings, their wicked parties, but yet in the night time, or in secret they abused sexualy minoriy women, bu;t yet they promonoded they where to good for them and even unclean for them, but yet you could not stop them from doing the one thing that was the closest to them physiscally and dirty, by trying to put himself on and inside of that same minority African person or minority whoever, efveryday, while lying and hippocriting in the daytime, about how filthy and animal like they where , they where really discribing themselves , same as the bigots with the gays, the lust after them every single day , they obssess with them more than the care about there own

    Its a vile sick mess, you see, Philip hinkle the republican senator , with wife and kids waiting at home for him, had just stepped from his politcal podium, hate bashing gay people , defamating them and trying to harm them thur legislations , and his delegations, talking about them like a dog, but yet like in history, the news media, and cops found him in the marriot hotel where he had picked up and underage lttle boy and took to a hotel for sexual assault rather than go home to his supposedly clean dignafied, christian wife and kids, him being a bible carriere and all , DO YOU GET ME. PAY ATTENTION. SAME WITH THE OTHERS. The bad pastors of satan prominoded in Mega churches, with christian titles, telling the congregation to hate the gay people and how horrible they where and all bad things, when in real life it was them the hetersexual that was the pedefile, and evil, sexual violations rape of minors one even took litttle boys on lavished trips to other countries from his church to d

  11. carrie baker 25 Nov 2011, 6:43am

    The wicked bad pastor would not take his own supposedly loving beautiful christian wife on those trips to other countries, with him he wanted only underage boys from his church to go with him everywhere, they boys told of their horrors he did with them after he got them for away on those trips, and promised to get them cars if they would not tell anyone, This was eddie long, mega church, he speaks hatred defamations in public about the gay community in public tho, DO YOU GET ME, PAY ATTENTION, if you look closely to who this man is tied into , they all have bad reputations of abuse and kkk or racism, he is caught in pictures in secret meeting with president bush which aired last year, some of his top members where the nations high profile other biggots including the dausght of a civil rights leader, a shame to the legacy of his equality movement, sitting right up under this mans sisck ministry , and no wonder why the naacp could not seem to move forward like it should with this persoa

  12. carrie baker 25 Nov 2011, 6:50am

    I kept wondering why isnt these people being heard of doing anything for human rights and marches where is the civil rights leaders equality soldiers and the mans familiey still sitting right here in the world and cant hear from them, and the nation riddled with racism , and then we find out the daughter goes to a hate religion, that preaches hatred for the gays, and defamations, and there she sit as a minister there noting but poison and lies filtering in and to top it off the so called head minister eddie long , has been sexuallly assualting little boys in the same hate filled ministery during agian day time pulpits, bible carrying people calling themselves christians, and linked to other republican biggots behind close doors attending private parties and meeting with them and most of them racist against his own color, but pat him on the back for being a fool for them and hurting others thru acted out racism but secret pedephile to little boys himself, not homophobic at all , GET ME

  13. carrie baker 25 Nov 2011, 6:59am

    Then their is Ted Haggards mega tv ministry where he spit out hate defamations until they found he was messing with you men in his church in secret when he wasnt preaching hate about them at night, they are not homophobic , just evil hippocrits, hurting other innocent famiies and lying on them when they are the animals and evils and monsters and all the bad names the racist and bigot call the other person it is them they truly describe, none other, they sit and describe, twisted abusive clinics to try and figure out why people are gay , thats none of their business anyway, what they need to deal with and figure out is how to stop the monsters which are them from rapping little children and trafficking them to other monsters like them, and beating their wives and killing them, and every other evil under the sun because they are our nations national security problems, them hetersexual biggots and hippocrits, Do you Get me, Follow the pattern, its all the same and you will see it in

      But why?

  14. carrie baker 25 Nov 2011, 7:07am

    Senator craig had just got down off of the podium in the white house helping bigots try and stop equal rights legislations to go forth to help the lgbt community which they where abusing and still is in many cases, But when he the biggot left his white house office, with his bible under his arm, he didnt go home to his supposedly loving christian family. he went cruising in a park trying to pick up gay men for sex and solicitied one in the bathroom that happened to be a cop, all of this while in the daytime preaching hate against the gay people, the hippocrit, not a homopholbic, not someone who is scared to be around gay people and dont want to be touch by those supposedly offal people, but the hippocrites burn in lust to to sexual violate them and call it sicsk fullfillment, then go home to their wives with their bible ready to lye and defamate in te morning all over again , then go hunt more gay people for sex when there finished in the pulpit and podium, what a sick mess, U

      This may sound crazy but…

  15. carrie baker 25 Nov 2011, 7:19am

    wHAT IS NEEDED is for you is to spend your money and time as a group of concerned individuals for equality, which is highly honorable , But the lgbt community needs you to continue help the Aclu, other human rights activists with racist cases in schools , suicides of children , the bullying, the bigots in satanic hate ministries, tied to klans an gansger networks, you need to help see to it that lgbt youth centers an shelters like the Alforney is up and running in every sector and village to help young people stigmaitize by the hetersexual evils , you need to help lend human rights lawyeres stepping in in racist cases to give a hand in going after racist firms and coops an administrations, and schools, we need you forming Halo clubs of angeliic advocates agianst bigotry, with mentoring and whisleblowing on it, saving lives and healing wounds and lending genuine support like these are needed more than studying homophobia, which it really isnt , its purre hatred and jealous, intimidates

    1. Jock S. Trap 15 Dec 2011, 10:13am

You dont sit and just say why are the people murdering children and rapping them and women, , you set up amber alerts, neighborhood watches, gang patrol, aler national task force undercover sting rings, and step up serveliance in all needed areas being attacked and bombarded with the crimes you send out medial intelligence and local voices, ads you have recovery centers awaiting victums, to take care and nurture, you Take Action, talk want get , it, by itself , If roach keep crosing your table and leaving turd pellets in your food and you are getting sick from it, watch for the roach set up strategic survellance get a fly swatter and get it when you see it and stop the virus of its secretions onto your plates, for it has become and intruder and is making you ill, harm, dont just sit and look at it, hetersexual men in more than one way along with bigotry

    1. Jock S. Trap 15 Dec 2011, 10:13am

      Not much to say then?

  17. carrie baker 25 Nov 2011, 7:36am

    This nation must do something quickly and especially by removing bigoted officials who will continue to lay infested poison of hatred and abuse and poison, to the people and disrupting their other wise peace families and friendships with others, unfair delegatioons and legislations, If a person does not care for people and children , looking at just human beings in need like them, of security and saftey and fairness, they will never make a good anything, and will harm any office they fill with abuse of title and personal hate agenda attacks to harm others rather than focus on the devasted and huring families and economy, and taking action on all their behalf like a good person would, a right and good heart must be part of the foundation and structure of a person in order to delegate properly and effectively positviely, without harm–Take actions on what haters do!!
