Posted on 08/16/2016 12:37:08 PM PDT by PROCON
The U.S. Department of Agriculture is holding summits to promote the role of lesbian farmers as a part of its Rural Pride campaign.
The agency is working with singer and LGBT activist Cyndi Lauper for a day of conversation about the struggles of gay and transgender individuals in rural America. The agency says its wants to change the perception of what it means to be a farmer in America away from the white, rich male.
The latest summit, first reported by the College Fix, will be held on August 18 at Drake University in Iowa.
The Office of the Assistant Secretary of Civil Rights, in collaboration with the National Center for Lesbian Rights and The True Colors Fund, will engage with LGBT rural communities across the country to host the LGBT Rural Summit Series, the USDA said. Each series will offer a unique opportunity for USDA and other federal agencies to share information relating to policies, programs, and services that exist to protect, promote and strengthen LGBT rural communities.

I say what took them so long?
Oh, for cryin’ out loud - it’s Groundhog Day in Hell with this nonsense.
Yes it is.
Lesbian Farmers? C’mon, this is beyond ridiculous - what IS a lesbian farmer, anyway?
I suspect they are like regular farmers, but they only grow Cucumbers, Squash, and Zucchini (you know, only the penis shaped vegetables...) :^)
My brother-in-law will be happy to know that he is rich. He's so rich that he has a second job and my sister has work off of the farm, as well.
We are approaching a time when this type of thing will not matter.
Okay, but why is a subsection of the overall farming community so important. When it comes to farming advice well, the taking care of plants part generally works the same regardless of who you well, want to sleep with.
If you don’t buy their produce they will sue you for $135,000 and destroy your miserable heterosexual lifestyle!
I wonder how much I could get if I moved back to the farm and claimed I was a lesbian....
Howe much gubermint monies I could get...
Wait, wait. You mean Lesbians are grown? I thought they were born that way. Not the crop I’d choose if I farmed but I can see where the government subsidies would make it attractive to some farmers.
Do gay and lesbian farmers farm differently than straight farmers?
LOL, it’s worth a shot.
What a load of bull! Who gives a hoot about homosexual farmers but the Obama promotors of the sexually defective? If they keep their mouths shut and do not mention their life style, no one will bother them. But if they start evangelizing among the local school children, they will have earned their trouble.
From the accepted doctrine that the United States is a government of delegated powers, it follows that those not expressly granted, or reasonably to be implied from such as are conferred, are reserved to the states, or to the people. To forestall any suggestion to the contrary, the Tenth Amendment was adopted. The same proposition, otherwise stated, is that powers not granted are prohibited [emphasis added]. United States v. Butler, 1936.
Remember in November !
Patriots need to support Trump / Pence by also electing a new, state sovereignty-respecting Congress that will not only work within its constitutional Article I, Section 8-limited powers to support Trumps vision for making America great again for everybody, but will put a stop to unconstitutional federal government inteference in state affairs.
Note that such a Congress will also probably be willing to fire state sovereignty-ignoring activist justices.
I’m a lesbian, do I get 40 acres and a mule?
Okay, I tried.
I tell you. I’m not going to eat any food produced by a lesbian farmer!
