  1. somebody should beat the ugly out of her.

    1. not sure anyone has that much time to spare!

      1. best post ever on PN! ^

        ain’t nobody got time for that… ;-)

  2. What’s this bigotry from a Black American Woman – ignorance about homosexuals and no mention of god or allah – just a bad woman I guess…

    1. Staircase2 29 Aug 2013, 4:12pm

      What kind of racist bollocks is that?

    2. Oh, make no mistake about it, God most certainly will come into it at some point, the interviewer probably just skipped over that.

      There are only really two types of bigot in this world, those who are so dumb they don’t even know why they are a bigot (usually neo-Nazis and the EDL-like numpties) then those who preach one form of religious cult belief or another.

      I would suggest she’s probably another Bible bashing lunatic.

      1. hmmm, i would expect ‘pray the gay away’ from christian rather then ‘beat the gay away’

    3. You have got such an issue with people who believe in god. You’re as bad as a religious fundamentalist, a total bigot against anyone who believes in god. I reckon if you had a kid and he/she came home and said mum/dad I believe in god, you’d beat the cr4p out him/her until they renounced their faith. Get a grip, you’re totally ignorant, not all people who believe in god/gods are evil.

      1. Not evil.

        Just stupid, brainwashed, and incapable of rational thought.

        However most are evil as they have never read the hate filled tomb but spout bits of it to suit there own irrational prejudices.

        Wearing any mixed fibres are we. Any in your house? They are a LEVITICUS abomination.

        Cherry picking idiot.

        1. I see you’ve got similar issues as JD. I’m not even religious, so what’s the point in throwing leviticus at me?

          One of the differences between me and you is that I don’t have issues with religious people, I have issues with homophobes, and some of those people are religious, and some are not. Some people who are religious/believe in god/gods are not homophobic. You’re just bigoted against all religious people because some of them are bigoted towards you.

          btw, have you ever read leviticus? If not, why are you quoting it? Cherry picking to suit your rational hate filled prejudices?

          As for religious people being stupid and incapable of rational thought – was Einstein stupid? or Newton? even Darwin wasn’t an atheist. And they’re just the scientists.

          Whereas stalin and mao tse tung were very rational, and atheists and they both hated LGBT people.

          1. ” have issues with homophobes, and some of those people are religious, and some are not.”
            Correction – The vast majority of homophobes, profess a religious reason for being so.
            There’s no rational justification for being a non-religious homophobe. The closest being “well, it’s icky!”
            I could say the same thing about any number of hetero couples making out. But I wouldn’t go out of my way to ban people I find unattractive, having sex.
            It’s ridiculous.
            The ‘unnatural’ and the ‘it’s anti-evolutionary’ arguments don’t work either. Because 1) it is natural, as anything that happens in nature is.
            2) There are studies that suggest evolutionary benefits to having homosexual traits in a given species. Including higher fertility rates among the females of homosexual siblings.

  3. Vile, hateful woman.

    People like her should not be allowed to reproduce.

    1. While I think that any abuse of children should be dealt with by the law are you suggesting that compulsory sterilisation is introduced?

      1. Of course he bloody well isn’t

        1. Well look at what Pink News’ own little resident fascist Jock.S.Crap has said if you don’t think that’s true……

          1. Chris, by flinging a word like ‘fascist’ around you’re showing yourself just as capable of a knee-jerk reaction as those whom you accuse of promoting eugenics. By only reacting to such remarks you’re also suggesting, inadvertently I hope, that being tolerant and progressive means supporting this woman’s skills as a parent, which are manifestly absent I think you’ll agree.

        2. Accuse of promotioning eugenics? He WAS promoting eugenics.

          I was not supporting her skills as a parent at all, THAT is a blanket assumption. I don’t understand the logic of your argument at all.

          I haven’t seen you condemning the posts supporting eugenics either.

          1. Perhaps I was being a it facetious (and full of wine) when I called him a fascist but for crying out loud, he is advocating forced sterilisation, doesn’t that strike you as a little reactionary and a bit reminiscent of a certain far-right government in Germany in the 1930s? Tell me Rehan, when he talks about “people like this” who do you think he’s talking about? Do you really think he means everyone who abuses their children or just a certain type that does? And besides knee-jerk labelling is common on this site, the words “bigot” and “nutjob” are often thrown around.

            As for saying that I’m supporting her skills as a mother, that’s a lie and you know it is. Being against such a inhuman practise as eugenics does not mean I support abusive parents. It’s a rather juvenile and wildly inaccurate accusation if you ask me, I’d expect better from you and no I don’t agree with anything you have said.

    She seems like a lovely woman, who has been isolated in one sense or another for much of her own life. I am less inclined to be judgmental about her than I am about the closeted sports men and celebrities and the law makers and the priests who have ensured that gay equals shameful all these years… including to the eyes and ears of the mother in this article.

  5. “He does not know right from wrong”

    And of course, forcing your 12 year old child to beat your other child is absolutely right and normal…

    Vile excuse for a mother.

  6. Jock S. Trap 29 Aug 2013, 2:43pm

    People like this should be forcibly sterilized and prevented from ever having children.

    Seriously, how cruel this nasty woman is… and no doubt the certain christians will back her up with who she does to children.

    It’s time adult realised children kn0ow a lot more than you think. It’s the Parents abuse/bigotry that is at fault here, not the fact her children happens to be Gay..

    let’s hope he can now live his live free from his parent… however there is a massive chance that this woman’s actions have scarred for live. Another well known contributor of religion.

    1. I’m guessing that people are assuming that she’s from a low income family or on welfare, are we suggesting that only these families should be forcibly sterilised or does that apply to multimillionaire stockbrokers that abuse their children as well? When talking about “people like this” that’s often what people mean, it’s utterly disgusting.

      1. Chris, your very good with your assumptions, wrong ones. Thank you for sharing your issues with us all though.

        1. I don’t think it’s wrong at all, the other posts have proved that assumption to be correct.

      2. If it walks like a Duck and talks like a Duck, it probably is a Duck.

        It might be unfair to trust in stereotypes, but sometimes it’s just true. In this case, I imagine that she is a single mother, probably drinks, low income, living in a mobile home, beats her kids and blames “the Devil” for everything from her own situation to the way she treats her own children – “the Devil made me do it!!!”.

        Not fair? Maybe. But then a lot of people bring this kind of judgment on themselves through their actions and words, just as I feel she has.

        BTW, I’m not attacking single parents, or those who live in trailers, or those on low incomes. I’m attacking this certain breed of ignorant Human who generally has that kind of lifestyle through their own failings and who then blames everyone but themselves for it.

        1. Posts like this make me realise that no matter how much some on here claim to be tolerant and progressive that the opposite is true. Sometimes judging by the comments it looks similar to a right wing rag, this comment about forcible sterilisation certainly does. I can understand the emotional response to homophobia but not a support of eugenics.
          No doubt some of you are the same people who were condemning Geoffrey Clark from UKIP over his comments on how foetuses with Down’s Sydrome foetuses should be “forcibly” aborted.

          1. chris, some of lgbt suffer from selective tolerance and would strongly agree with most of daily mail cr@p.

          2. This is a woman who actively supports her allegedly heterosexual son beating the sh!t out of her perceived gay son.

            Do you think this is right.

            Is this a person fit to look after children,

            You are an apologist for this womans actions and therefore agree with what she did.

            She it continue to be allowed to occur?

            You clearly think so.

          3. So condemning forced sterilisation means I support child abuse? What a twisted way of thinking, if you bothered to read my other post you’d see that I said that the law should deal with child abusers.

    2. Eugenics was practiced and enforced via law in the US for many years. Hitler got his racial ethnic cleansing ideas from this as reflected in his book Mein Kamf. I’m so glad that this was not forced upon my mum. Yet then again, with my IQ three different times tested as 80 or so average, if the law was alive today, I would have been forcibly sterilized myself.

    3. Forcibly sterilised? WTF. Is that a joke? Forcibly sterilised. I can’t believe I’ve just read that and that people have marked you up. You think you have the moral high ground by saying someone should be forcibly sterilised? Sick.

  7. Yes, because ‘all gay neighbours molest teenagers’.

    She should be glad she’s actually got gay neighbours, who are far less likely to be bad neighbours, rather than gang neighbours trying to recruit her son into gun crime and selling drugs.

  8. very selective and quite distasteful reporting Ben Cohen. Seems a little bit racist to me

    1. Explain? There’s no mention of race in the article, the only indication is the photograph.

    2. Staircase2 29 Aug 2013, 4:15pm

      I don’t see how…
      And the reporting was done by Scott Roberts not Ben Cohen…

    3. Well I’m not racist, I’m the same RedDevil9 from Disqus, so feel free to read my comments on there and you’ll see for yourself. I live in Manchester and there is no race relation to crime here. Crime doesn’t have a race. I was just pointing out that some neighbours are better than others and that she should be more concerned about more dangerous things her son could get involved in, rather than imaginary ‘threats’ just because she has a few gay neighbours.

  9. Lock her up in a mental institution ! This kid should be taken away from her , no wonder there’s so much gay teens comiting suicide …crazy bitch

  10. Quicksilver 29 Aug 2013, 3:22pm

    That she-beast got the devil in her! Someone get me an ol’ carpet to roll her in, and a big stick. I’ll get that demon loose from her soul.

  11. So …. she encouraged one of her childred to beat another? What a loving specimen of humanity SHE is. And I bet she’d describe herself as a ‘christian’. They really are becoming whackier by the day. Have any of them actually READ the ‘christian’ bible? The central and most important instruction therein is ‘Love One Another’ and NOT ‘beat the crap out of people if they’re gay. Of course, if she REALLY believes all that the bible says, presumably she’ll be happy with the re-introduction of slavery – which that funny old book also condones ….?

  12. I am a lesbian living in the US in Washington State and that was the face of prejudice surrounding my high school years as a completely out and free lesbian, back in 1999 when people were not completely into it. Things have changed, people like her are a dying breed. Blacks living in a post civil rights state where racism is still prevelant. It is not nationwide. Please always be gay free and happy and remember these people will be leaving with each passing generation of gay free and happy!

  13. Staircase2 29 Aug 2013, 4:13pm

    “he’s not all there, he does not know right from wrong”

    …things that make yer go hmmm

  14. She’s African what else is to be expected. Looks tribal to me.

    1. Perhaps it’s time for a visit to SpecSavers.

    2. Dave North 30 Aug 2013, 9:52pm

      She is of African descent, imported to the USA via the good old Christian loving slave traders.

      Her skin colour and descendancy is totally irrelevant.

      The simple matter is that she has been “God Bothered” and now abusing her own children as a result of aforesaid God botherers filling her mind with bullsh!t.

      Sometimes I truly wish that I was so stupid and air headed that I could understand where these holders back of humanity are coming from.

      I simply cannot.

      Perhaps aithiests and Homosexuals ARE the next evolutionary step up from these over breeding science denying idiots.

  15. Soshul Wurka 29 Aug 2013, 6:30pm

    Whatever the sexuality of my 12-year-old son, I wouldn’t let him visit what appears to be a sexual predator. What’s wrong with you people? This is why people hate us and think we have no morals.

    1. eeer, the boy in question is 15yo not 12yo

      1. 15, not 12. So it’s alright then? for shame…

        1. It might be. The age of consent in North Carolina is 16, but they also have a ‘close in age’ exemption which would make it perfectly legal if the neighbour is 18 years old or younger (and the relationship is consentual, of course). NC did have a law making homosexual activity at any age illegal, but apparently the Supreme Court threw it out.

          And there’s no reason to assume that the neighbour is a sexual predator even if he is appreciably older than the 15 year old. He might well be simply platonically supporting the boy as he starts to question his sexuality- which would be very beneficial given that it appears that he’s from a family which isn’t exactly gay-friendly.

          It COULD be dodgy, of course. But given that NC isn’t the most gay-friendly state itself, if there really was molestation going on the chances are the police would be all over it. Sometimes, the police don’t do anything because there isn’t anything to do.

  16. I think that we should beat the ….. out of her and this family; and, afterwards….do these things!

  17. He doesn’t know right from wrong? I think she is the one who doesn’t know right for wrong! Moron.

  18. Jim Nashville Tn 29 Aug 2013, 9:33pm

    where is the child .. while all the authorities investigate …crazy woman…
    a mother should be her child’s protector . and what is this about a gay neighbor .. and abuse …. another bigot screaming … I hope the authorities protect the child .. and get him to safety

  19. I bet she goes to a church, where a good, so called Christian pastor tells her to hate hate hate, and give him her money… I bet she is ‘god fearing’ and everything.

    1. is it because she’s black?

      1. Dave North 30 Aug 2013, 9:45pm

        No.

        It’s because she is a sh!t parent undeserving of giving the gift of life when she has actively ignored her parental instinct in favour of the brain numbing hogwash her religious indoctrinators have implanted into her obviously stupid head.

        UNFIT PARENT.

        1. Isn’t it about time people had to pass a test before being allowed to procreate? You need a licence to keep animals – but ANYONE, it seems, can bring another human into this old world without a scrap of training or control. (And before ‘Outraged Liberal of Tonbridge’ starts madly ticking the thumbs-down – this is meant as a joke …).

  20. I have a few questions for the advocates on eugenics. How exactly do we decide who is going to be sterilised? How do we make sure that it’s not abused as it has been so many times in the past? The truth is you don’t know because you haven’t thought it through, it’s just a knee-jerk reaction (bizarrely what I’ve been acucused of for daring to criticise such a heinous idea). According to some attacking the idea as inhumane and unjust means you’re siding with the woman who abused her child, that’s weird logic.

  21. I was brought up in the N E of Scotland and I had a neighbour who I was absolutely besotted with.
    At 15 I literally stalked him. Heart pounding, dick rock hard.Wish he’d just turn around and notice me.
    Gotta tell ya’ll…. it would have been molestation. If he’d given me the slightest encouragement. But, I’d have been doing the molesting.
    I WAS gagging for it.
    As it turned out, I was just left with my imagination, good wrist action a hardon that just wouldn’t quit and a very sore knob….. Lovely!!!
    I knew exactly what I wanted at 13 and more importantly I also knew it WAS RIGHT for me.

  22. i would love to beat the demon out of her hair….my goodness

  23. Lock her away for many, many years and most of all, take the children away from her.
