    For the June art contest, we'll be giving LGBTQ month the Star Trek treatment!

    Fancy depicting Culber and Stamets at the Kaseelian Opera? Or showing the Enterprise warp streaks with a distinctly rainbow tinge? Then this is the thread for you!

    Here are the rules for the competition:
    • the artwork you submit should be created during the month of the challenge
    • only one final image can be submitted (although it may contain multiple views)
    • your final entry should be posted in this thread (although dedicated WIP threads are appreciated)

    Looking forward to seeing what people come up with. :)

    Nice.

    It's a bit hard because...Gene had a certain point. On paradise Earth would be by the 24th Century, LGBTQ Pride would be non-issue..... I like to hope there's a colony out there descended from the Deaf community of the early 21st Century...possibly the Laurentian System mentioned in nuTrek. So perhaps...same for the LBGTQ community...

    I'm probably overthinking this. Tho I think I have an idea.

    I certainly can't speak for lgbtq communities, but I always thought that pride month was not just about overcoming prejudices (although that's a big component) but also celebrating people for being who they are. Infinite diversity in infinite combinations, as Star Trek characters like to say. :)

    1) LGBTQ will never be a "non-issue" dude and
    2) "Prejudice" is not the basis of the disagreement and
    3) There are a lot of us who find the promotion of it as offensive and obscene but of course, that point of view makes no difference.
    Fancy that huh.

    I love that you went with my suggestion for the contest theme, @SCE2Aux! [​IMG]

    And I love your ideas. I so want that image of the Enterprise with rainbow streak! I hope I'll be able to work on my entry soon.

    As for negative and potentially hurtful comments regarding the subject of LGBTQ+ people and pride that are unfortunately to be expected: This is neither the time nor the place to voice them here, so I'll kindly ask you to bite your tongue or get out. That's all I want to say about that and I hope I made myself clear. Thank you.

    Both myself and Mrs SCE2Aux are looking forward to participating, and we each have an idea that we will hopefully get started on this weekend. :)

    Like I said.
    Just like smokers. Non smoker opinions don't matter as long as the smokers get their way.
    BTW...
    You're right. This isn't the place to discuss right or wrong and I don't personally care where you park your convertible. This about you not caring what the other side feels.
    I don't make a parade of my heterosexuality, wave it in your face and demand that you accept it and to my knowledge, there's no National Heterosexuality Day for parades or odd looking posters and flags and crap like that. Nor do I force you to abide or accept it by singling out only homosexual contributors in a silly contest which is what you did here.
    You on the other hand, do just that by forcing us to "sign on or get out".
    That's what you wrote.

    They did that in Sodom and Zamora too and look where it got them.

    I won't participate in this event because it's offensive.

    You want peace?
    Carry on your sexual conduct privately and quietly behind closed doors like the hetro's do or in strip clubs (like the hetros do) and you'll have peace.
    Keep forcing it on us and you'll get escalating war.

    That's my peace.

    Your entire bigoted diatribe blows goats. And - you can’t spell either.

    Alas, there will always be archaic thinking. (It's Gomorrah, not Zamora, BTW.)
    In other news, the Earth is still not flat.

    I have an idea as well; hope I have the time.

    Straight people don't need a parade because every day is National Heterosexuality Day by default. The dominant group in a society doesn't need a public demonstration of their right to exist because no one denies them their basic civil rights or treats their very existence like it's a political issue that's up for debate. That's why White Pride marches or Men's Rights parades are bullshit organized by bigots and manbabies while the opposite are not. No one's taking away straight white men's rights.

    And who is forcing you to participate in anything? Do gay commandos come to your house and force you to go to the parade at gunpoint? Are you being compelled to participate in this art contest against your will? Sit this one out, I doubt you'll be missed.
    Yeah, you're on the wrong forum for this bigoted bullshit. Get lost.
    It's hard to take you seriously when you can't even properly spell the things that you use to justify your bigotry. Go educate yourself before you pass judgment on others.

    This sounds like a threat to me. Get the fuck out. You're not welcome here.

    I’ll be fine with LGBTQ people not flaunting anything as long as straight people do as well. No couples being seen together in public, no talk of straight relationships shoved down my throat, no straight couples in media (especially media geared towards children, Disney is especially found of this perverted trope) and no babies in public ever again.

    This was sarcasm, everyone should be free to be themselves and not live under fear of attack from bigots and other defects of human nature.

    @Handyman is true to form: here just to be a pill. He popped into the Axanar thread in Fan Productions to school everyone there on it when he clearly didn't know a damned thing, insulted people (link), then ducked discussing both the hard facts and even the coolly presented arguments and questions, and flailed around to blame everyone who didn't agree with his arguments. When that got no traction he vanished from the forum. Reductio ad absurdum.

    The gay agenda: redecorating your house while you're out and replacing those tacky curtains with some a lot more tasteful and complimentary to the wood paneling in the pantry.

    Also: "hetros"?

    Is that a Greek wrap that comes with fries? Asking for a friend.

    So, to summarise, you are taking the stance that strip clubs are morally preferable to Pride events and basing this on the Old Testament?

    I thought Zamora was one of the Guardians of the Galaxy?

    Sure do! I know the Holy Moley!

    36. “Sodomy” needs no explanation. If it does, consult any standard textbook, good dictionary or average work of pornography. However, the word “gomorrahy” has fallen into disuse. When asked about the act of gomorrahing, The Author was vague but seemed to imply it was a sexual practice involving a goat and a rubber sink plunger.
    God, The Ultimate Autobiography, Jeremy Pascall,1988, p.88 (footnote 36)
    And poor Lot...

    And Lot traveled to Zoar where he abided in peace. And he became an object of curiosity in that town because he was the only man who had escaped Sodom and Gomorrah. And because he was the only man who never took salt on his food, explaining, “You never know who it’s been.”
    —ibid p.92​
