The face that launched 1000 women running across the street

ruse

… in fear of being raped. In case you’ve never heard of him, he’s part of the anti-gay & anti-women’s rights Faust/Lopez/Edelman circle. He also happens to be the man who says victims of rape should be forced to have their rapist’s babies. And of course, also the one who got fired for saying that left-wing professors should be “taken out and shot.”

Just like Lopez and his sham ICRI organization, Ruse founded a group only to make himself president and lend himself airs of credibility. It’s called C-Fam and no surprise, it’s listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Centre. They go to really extreme lengths to pretend they’re some sort of major organization, when in reality it’s only an old man being assisted by a handful of whackjobs in an office the size of a closet.

Just like the rest of the circle, the man does nothing but peddle wedge issues in the hopes of lining his pockets. What is clear is these people make whole careers out of nothing other than promoting the marginalization of fellow citizens. In that sense Ruse gets a prize for pushing ridiculous and utterly debunked stereotypes as in “gays are pedophiles.”

Fortunately, their time is counted. The explosion of the internet has made it near impossible for those who exploit fear and hate, and spread ignorance to have any substantive role in society. The best Lopez, Faust and Ruse can hope for are insignificant pockets of support from their fellow ageing religious fanatics. The vast majority of the civilized world, and especially the under 40’s, dismiss their views as the rantings of fools. That means that sooner or later they’ll have to get real jobs.

    I am not sure, actually. I am just starting a post on Jane Collins MEP, climate change denier. Not bad salaries for MEPs.

    Funny. Ruse is a Catholic. As one, his main concern should be seeing the hierarchy of the Catholic Church several punished and publicly shamed for allowing, and fostering, pedophilia by its priests. Instead, he dishes out hatred toward women, gays, and liberals. If evil exists, it’s in the hearts of people like Ruse. Thank goodness, like you said, his is a species that’s on its way to extinction. I just wish it would happen a lot faster.

    I’ve actually NEVER heard of this man, but it stands to reason that he’s a Roman Catholic (the Catholic Church being so anti-abortion that it believes victims of rape should have the rapist’s baby). Here in the States, we have freedom of speech, and that applies to speech I don’t like, not just speech I like, so Mr. Ruse can go on spouting whatever nonsense he chooses…but I have the freedom to not listen to him, to not espouse his beliefs.

      He’s an obscure figure. A desperado who dreams of being a conservative celebrity 🙂

        Well, there’s no law against being a crazy bastard, so he can go right on being a legend in his own mind.

    Sadly I think exploiting fear and hate is still rife on the Internet. These idiots may have e relatively small and aging following but I think it may be a bit over optimistic to think there aren’t quite a few younger idiots waiting to replace them and keep the hate speech going.

      Acceptance of LGBT individuals is constantly rising. In Spain and France it’s an overwhelming majority.
      Of course there’ll be pockets of religious fanatics and opportunists (same way there are still anti-semitic people), but in all it seems we’re moving in the right direction 🙂

  5. Time is on the side of those who believe in the equal dignity of sexual minorities.
    This Austin Ruse is a riot. He goads gay leaders into bickering with him over social media because honestly he has so few people who will speak with him. In other words he has to pick a fight in order to get attention on himself. His wife works for Family Research Council. His best years are behind him.

    We Won! We won in Spain, we won in France we won in Great Briton, we won in Ireland and we won in the United States. And we WILL WIN in Australia. We are living in a tremendous point in history, it is exciting to be alive and participating in this moment. There are more countries that need change than the ones who have already changed. I saw today that Arcus Foundation, which is basically funded by Jon Stryker, is leading a campaign to improve the lives of people who are transgender, a global initiative. They are going to collect and fund a 20 million dollar initiative.

    I see Warren Buffet’s son, Peter Buffet is in on it also. John Stryker & Tim Gill are the biggest funders of pro LGBT organizations. We need some of these younger rich sexual minorities to amp up their pro LGBT philanthropy. That guy from Facebook for example.

    Warren Buffet is amazing. He actually pledged practically all of his fortune to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. I remember reading a long interview he did, and he said that they are younger than him & Bill has got an excellent foundation going so might as well add funding there rather than start his own. He does have a foundation and it is so cool what they did. Warren Buffet was the funder (although it was not widely known) behind an experiment in Colorado. In Colorado they gave high school aged and maybe a little bit older than high school, they gave them free long term pregnancy prevention education and medication. It wasn’t like the pill. There are different long term medications, (like you go get a shot every 6 months or maybe it is a year) and IUD’s etc. They provided education and the medication and surprise surprise teen pregnancy in Colorado plummeted. In my mind this is the alternative to abortion, prevent the pregnancies in the first place. Teenagers are teenagers and 50% of them are going to have sex and that is just a fact.

    The right wing Christians were all up in arms with the Colorado experiment because it offered free birth control devices & medications. Warren Buffet must have been quietly smiling. Warren did quite a bit of mechanisms over several years to get that through. If I’m not mistaken he even had to get a change in State law.

    We must never forget the truly generous rich people who fund the campaigns and organizations to promote the equal dignity of sexual minorities. You need both, you need grass roots activists, but you also need big money. I can’t provide the big money but I can stay busy doing what I can with a keyboard, a computer & a good sound mind. I’m just a blade of grass, like Mr. M is just a blade of grass, in a great grass roots movement. We are living in a special time for we ARE changing the culture. We are changing the world one person at a time. We ARE helping to change the world.

    Austin Ruse, Robert Oscar Lopez, Katy Faust et al, they are all boxed in, we need to keep them that way. They are boxed in by two things, public opinion and the law, we need to keep working to make their box even smaller, their audience (public opinion) who agrees with them, even smaller.

      WAIT a second! You’re confusing me. Two hours ago you were me, then you were Jeremy Hooper- now you’re commenting here- and what I really want to know is if I get to spend a week in a hotel room with Jeremy Hooper in an undisclosed location.

      Because as things stand that would mean I’m just spending a week with myself 🙂 Which is obviously both acceptable and innocent!

      The majority of Australians have their hearts in the right place. It’s just a cabal of politicians who can’t or won’t listen to the will of the majority. 😦

  6. Isn’t that so funny! I mean it is really hilarious. Robert Oscar Lopez started it. I first met him when he was commenting all over the internet on the Regnerus study. Of course I was the first person who contacted Regnerus about his study, I e-mailed him and he e-mailed me back, this was on a Sunday I think it was June 11, 2012. The study was released to the public for free the next day on the internet but I had read an article about it on Box Turtle Bulletin which he had published on that Sunday.

    The rest is history so to speak. Because ROL kept making himself part of the Regnerus story I have just always made a point of reading most things he writes, and I take and save a lot of screenshots. He is notorious for deleting what he writes. I tipped off many bloggers about things he writes and comment on their articles. I am definitely his nemesis, LOL! But I don’t do anything other than report on what he writes, so if he doesn’t like the blogger commentary on what he writes perhaps he should NOT write that stuff in the first place.

    Jeremy Hooper used to write quite a bit about ROL, but then it seemed like he just got sick of ROL and realized he was a nobody anyway so he stopped writing about him. . I tipped Jeremy and also I have quite a few hat tips from Joe.my.God, I tipped them off to things ROL wrote. It is somewhere in this time period that ROL got the idea that Straight Grandmother was a sock puppet for Jeremy Hooper. First ROL wrote on his blog, it was an end of the year article, how he was going to ignore nasty gay bloggers Jeremy Hooper and I think Scott Rose, and me and he said I was a Shrill Queen. I about bust a gut laughing. So he started with saying I was a Queen Gay Man and then from there he morphed it into Jeremy Hooper is Straight Grandmother. His mind is unbelievable, it’s creepy unbelievable.

    So now YOU are Straight Grandmother. I’m laughing so hard as I write this. But I also kinda get why he assumes this. It is because he has since I started following him in 2012, he has had SO MANY sock puppet accounts that he feels that everybody does it. One sock puppet account was called Coco_Rico. I laughed so hard with that name. His mother was Puerto Rican, and Coco, is probably from Coco Channel. I saw a comment today on The Slowly Boiled Frog (which is an EXCELLENT Blog you should read) that he has another twitter account called MeanGaysSeries but no tweets out of it yet. Robert Oscar Lopez {{{facepalm}}}
