Michigan official attacks gay student body president in blog: Soon after the University of Michigan students elected their first gay student body president, Shirvell the blogger discriminated against him with words like “resign” with a gay flag on his face.

Teach Tolerance, seeking justice, and are dedicated to fighting hate and seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of our society Currently 892 hate groups in the U.S, and 19 in Michigan The truly stunning growth came in the antigovernment “Patriot” movement — conspiracyminded groups that see the federal government as their primary enemy. The Patriot movement first emerged in 1994, a response to what was seen as violent government repression of dissident groups at Ruby Ridge, Idaho, in 1992 and near Waco, Texas, in 1993, along with anger at gun control and the Democratic Clinton Administration in general. It peaked in 1996, a year after the Oklahoma City bombing, with 858 groups, then began to fade. By the turn of the millennium, the Patriot movement was reduced to fewer than 150 relatively inactive groups. The LGBT community made significant advances in 2011, with the repeal of the “Don’t Act, Don’t Tell” policy on gay men and lesbians in the military, the growing acceptance of samesex marriage by Americans and the legalization of such bonds in New York state. What’s more, bullying is only the beginning of the violence experienced by gays in American society. The reality is that homosexuals or perceived homosexuals are by far the group most targeted in America for violent hate crimes, Gay people are more than twice as likely to be attacked in a violent hate crime as Jews or blacks; more than four times as likely as Muslims; and 14 times as likely as Latinos. o Highest Number of AntiGay Murders Reported in 2011: In 2011, 30 fatally violent hate crimes were committed against lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender victims, 3 more than the previous year’s total. o Anti Semitism: The belief or behavior hostile toward Jews just because they are Jewish.

The need for this provision is real, as demonstrated by the Matthew Shepard case. o When Matthew Shepard was murdered in 1998, the Laramie, Wyo., police department requested assistance from the U.S. Department of Justice. Because crimes motivated by anti-LGBT bias were not covered in federal law, the department could not assist, and the prosecution was so expensive that Laramie had to furlough law enforcement officers. The act ensures that local law enforcement will have the resources it needs to address hate crimes. o Until the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, federal law has never protected our community. o What it took to get this Act passed: support from everyone! More then 300 organizations signed the act o Over 1 million emails and calls sent to Capital Westboro Baptist church protests why? response: new laws and Patriot Guard Riders o Protests throughout the U.S at military funerals claiming deaths to soldiers are due to U.S acceptance of Gays and Lesbians o In 2011 supreme court ruled that they have the right to protest, but now state and federal laws have put in “boundary” restrictions for these protesters o Response: Motorcycle group called the Patriot Guard Riders attempt to drown out the antigay protests o The Westboro church also targets Jewish people and protest at other locations throughout the U.S Similarities and differences between the three largest monotheistic religions covered in class o The three largest monotheistic religions are Christianity Islam Judaism o Similarities: All trace back to Abraham All worship the same God o Differences Worship in different places Christians: Church Muslims: Mosque Jews: synagogue/ Temple Word of God is written in different Christians: Bible Muslims: Quran Jews: Torah (old testament) Misconceptions about Islam and Muslims o All Muslims are not Arab, Middle-Eastern or of African descent.

Try to talk to him about it if you are comfortable doing so. Urge him to seek help. 3. Question your own attitudes and language. Could they be inadvertently perpetrating sexism and violence or be hurtful to someone else? 4. If you suspect someone you know is being abused, ask if you can help. 5. If you are emotionally, psychologically, physically, or sexually abusive to women, or have been in the past, seek professional help NOW. 6. Be an ally to women who are working to end all forms of gender violence. Support their efforts with your time, talent and treasure. Support local rape crisis and domestic violence programs. Consider organizing a fundraiser for them or for MAVAW. 7. Recognize and speak out against homophobia and gay-bashing as abuse of one affects all and this abuse can have a link to sexism. 8. Learn more about gender inequality in differing societies and about the root causes of gender violence. Educate yourself and others on the issue. 9. Don’t fund sexism. Refuse to purchase items that are sexually degrading towards women. 10. Teach young boys about how to be men that are respectful of women. Lead by example.
