I don’t have much time to write on this at the moment, but I want to refer you to Fetch Me My Axe’s latest blog about Acton (Massachusetts) High School TRA lesbian Claudia Contrada and her untenable situation with the amommie from hell who just happens to “staff” at the local anti-queer cell, Article 8 Alliance, and reportedly schmoozes with the Fred Phelps gang. The adopter, Amy Contrada, says that Claudia, despite her claims to the contrary, is not a lesbian at all. According to the elder Contrada, Claudia is simply the confused victim of the Acton school system’s “homosexual agenda” that makes her think she is. Like her school’s current production of the acclaimed Laramie Project in which Claudia appeared before being yanked from school last week., the Boston Globe, and Salon’s World o Crap blogger (be sure to read this one, but be wared, it’s ugly!) have picked up on the story. In turn, Amy Contrada who blogs reportedly under the nom d plume “A Mann” for the Internet wingnut blog rag, MassResistance outs Claudia’s adoption and alleged psychological problems and learning disabilities which supposedly make her the perfect target for queer conversion. So much for privacy!

Claudia must be extraordinarily strong and resilient–and the ultimate disappointment for the mini-me adopter who went all the way to Korea to “save” her. (And who in the hell let this nutter adopt?) Since she is still a minor and under the adopter/owner’s thumb, there’s not much we can do for Claudia but send her our support. We hope that she’s not sent off to an indoctrination camp for bad bastards and transgressive females.

Our 18th birthday wish for you: run Claudia run! As far as you can! There’s certainly a place for you in Bastard Nation

Please go over to Fetch Me My Axe (with links) and read the whole disgusting sordid story. Claudia is one of us!

Oh, and fuck you, Amy Contrada! You aren’t!

Know Thy


  1. My comment is already over on ‘Fetch Me My Axe’, but suffice it to say, her being a Queer Korean adoptee with a professional homophobe for a adoptive mother (when it isn’t busy soundling like a sitcom) sounds like pure hell.

    Plenty of us grow up Queer, only to have people who should know better insist nonsense like ‘oh no you’re not young lady’, but the bottom line is it’s not for them to determine.

    Claudia has my sympathies.

  2. As soon as I saw the name Fred Phelps my heart dropped. This poor girl – her mom isn’t just a nutter – she’s full blown off the charts insane if she believes the venom that idiot and his minions spew.
