Re: The Salvation Army - Help the ones in need - donate in the spirit of Christmas!
The money goes into the hands of people who will not give any support towards gay people in need and in fact demonize us. So we need to be very clear that supporting Salvation Army in fact does not support US. It does not support the 40% of people who are homeless, that identify as LGBTQ, at least in the States. It doesn't help the high amounts of LGBTQ individuals who struggled with drug abuse and are just getting clean and need help. No, they are helping people who they want to help and giving the middle finger to the rest, and that's NOT what a decent charity does.
And I don't take back what I said. Giving money to a blatantly homophobic organization as a gay person, or pro-gay straight person, is incredibly offensive on every single level, and it's traitorous.
