Olesya Rulin Joins NO H8 Campaign

Olesya Rulin Joins NO H8 Campaign

Olesya Rulin shows off her crystal clear eyes in this new shot for the NO H8 Campaign.

The NO H8 Campaign started with portraits of everyday Californians who were shocked to hear the passing of Proposition 8, which bans same-sex marriage in California.

The campaign photos, which also features celebrities Fran Drescher, Steve-O, and Brennan Hillard, have subjects with duct tape over their mouths symbolizing their voices not being heard.

    i think anyone shoud be free to do what they want!! it is stupid making someone love and marry another one if they dont love each other!


    i want to marry a MAN. but if i had a gay/lesbian bestfriend/family member i WOULD fight for their rights, so that i could see them be just as happy as i will/would be when im married. no matter if they happen to fall inlove with the same s.e.x

    I don’t understand why people assume that you must HATE gay people if you are against gay marriage. I am a Christian and I believe that the Bible is God’s word. Not just the pretty parts that I agree with, but ALL of it. It clearly states that homosexuality is a sin, and in that same Bible Jesus says “If you love me you will follow my commandments”, so I am not going to pretend to be all fine and dandy with it. But in no way does that equate to HATING gay people. I just disagree with their lifestyle choice and I’m not going to lie about that just to please them. (Note that I did not say being gay itself is a choice, but “coming out” and leading the lifestyle is.) I don’t care enough to get worked up about it, but I can’t stand the way I and others are pigeonholed as hateful people for this. Feel free to burn me at the stake now…

  • amanda

    Annabel, I completely agree with you…and I hope that celebrities who also agree will have the courage to express these views some day.

  • Annabel

    I just realized that there is another Annabel in the house. To prevent any confusion, I am the one who posted comment #17. #8 and I are not the same person.

  • amanda

    Well, I agree with comment # 17. :)

  • amanda

    Well I agree with comment #17. :)

  • Zanesa4ever

    @Annabel: I totally agree with EVERYTHING you just said!!!!!!!


    I don’t hate gay people… really but I mean i grow up with heterosexual ppl and for me its just normal and i feel kinda weird that they are asking everyone to treat them equally and all that stuff if for they are not. I mean its so obviuos that man a woman were meant to be together cause i mean we can see that physically a woman was meant to be with a man i mean its pointless to be with a same-sex person if u cannot procreate ITS NOT NORMAL!!!! ok??? it might be COMMON to see gay ppl here and there but it is not normal , not just beacause everyone is gay means “oh being gay its normal” ITS NOT NORMAL it is COMMON so gays if u wanna fight for gay rights go ahead DO IT but don’t ask me to treat u like everyone else. im not being racist not at all but i mean its just crazy that our believes are changing and our lifestyle 2… its just sad…. but welll im not against gay marriage…. but i do not support it… JUST MY OPINION….besides im catholic and mmy religion says no gays but i not gonna talk about that here…. cause everyone has their own believings and their own point of view which deserves to be respected……

  • Kruster

    In 10 or 20 years, gay marriage will be legal all across the US. In 50 years, those who opposed gay marriage will be looked at similarly to those who opposed civil rights for blacks. This is a matter of civil rights. Whether you agree with homosexuality or not, do gay people hold the same rights to marry the person they love as heterosexuals? How could they possibly not? If you are a Christian and don’t approve of homosexuality, then you are free not to enter into a gay marriage.

  • speakingout

    All I have to say is by saying there voices weren’t heard everyone is saying that the people’s voices who voted for Prop. 8 are not important and that is not the American way. They had the vote and the majority voice one. Everyone had the opportunity to vote. Nobody’s voice was disregarded. It was a fair and constitutional vote. By fight it you are saying the AMERICAN Constitution is wrong to allow everyone to vote and have the majority vote win. We may not all agree, but we all need to respect what people believe. That does not mean that you have to “make” people change their opinion, but accept what they believe and move on. This whole Prop. 8 has been dragged out way to long, the People’s voice has been heard.

  • kamilah

    @Annabel. i understand what you believe in, im christian too. not a strong christian but i do believe in God and the bible. with that said i would like to point out that there is no where in the bible that clearly states that homosexuality is a sin. however, it does say “each man should have his own wife, and each woman should have her own husband. nothing about gay marriage being WRONG. but regardless of what the bible may say, christianity is not the law of the usa. religion is a freedom of choice and not the deciding factor when it comes to making laws like prop 8. the first amendment clearly states that “congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion…” that means if a law were made based off of any religious beliefs, it would be unconstitutional. the argument about what the bible says is completely irrelevant to this subject. if that were the case, the government would have to account for every religious book in the world since every american isnt christian. remember religion is a choice, not an obligation. everyone has a right to their opinion/belief on the subject and i respect yours, but im sick of seeing the bible being used as an excuse to justify the government denying americans their civil rights. im didnt make this comment to be rude or anything, i just wanted to voice my opinion just as you have done

  • Annabel


    The Bible calls homosexuality an abomination. If that doesn’t mean homosexuality is wrong than I don’t know what does. I’m not sure what Bible you’re reading. It’s not an “excuse” to deny anyone anything. These are my actual beliefs. I’m not hunting for reasons to go against gay marriage. Do you honestly think people are thinking to themselves “Hmm… I really hate gay people. Let me see if I can find anything to “justify” that… oh look! Here, see? In the Bible it says it’s an abomination! Na-na-na-na boo boo!” Come on now, don’t insult my intelligence like that.

  • Annabel


    You are officially my favorite person on this site. I agree with you. And Kruster, I am more than aware of the fact that I am not obligated to enter a gay marriage. Thank you for stating the obvious. But if I am being asked to cast my vote based on what I feel is right, then I am going to do so honestly. I am not seeking to change anyone’s opinion, just stating my own. And from the looks of it, the majority of people in the USA share it. I can guarantee you that gay marriage will be legal across the country one day. When that happens, I’m not going to look back at myself and think “oh look how silly I was” for opposing it. I will think “too bad” and move on. I’m not going to lose sleep over the fact that people don’t agree with me. Everyone is entitled to lead their life as they please (as long as they’re not hurting anyone else in the process), but that doesn’t mean I have to cater to them.

  • kamilah

    @Annabel: okay if it says word for word that “homosexualiy is an abomination” please inform me of the EXACT part where i can find that in the bible because clearly ive over looked it. and yes i do believe that some people were raised to be ignorant, hateful, and judgemental and therefore hate the gay community and want to find ways to make them less equal. do you honestly think that people arent like that because if so, i feel sorry for you. america is highly know for discrimination. if people can discriminate against people who are a different skin color, i fully believe that people discriminate based on a persons sexual orientation and try to find ways to justify it when they know its wrong. i dont give a flying f*ck what a persons ethnicity is, what their religious beliefs are, or if they like guys or girls. if your a human being in this country, you should be entitled the same rights as any else.

  • Simplyjer

    THE BIBLE SAYS SO!!!! Please keep the bible and the teaching in your own church. My church teaches diversity and the love of God and Jesus for all. My church has same sex couples…some with children..and traditional married couples…some with children. We all get along and enjoy fellowship together. This is one of the largest churches in LA…not some small clan of strange folk. That being said…..we all have Freedom Of Religion…as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution and don’t belong in the Matters Of State sorting out who should and who should not be granted a marriage license. A Marriage License…just like a Drivers License is administered by the State. The Point: Protect Freedom of Religion…and at the same time…Religion should Respect the State to operate is it has always been intended. Separate and both respected.

  • amanda

    Prop 8 was a conservative reponse to the California Supreme Court ruling that overturned a previous ban on gay marriage. Judging from California’s response this last November, EVEN IF gay marriage was justified, there is no way the majority of Californians are going to let it happen.

  • kamilah

    @Simplyjer: OMG THANK YOU!! finally someone who also understands what “separation of church” means.

  • Haylie


    Leviticus 18:22 my dear.

  • big package

    haha you people are funny the bible is work of fiction, u know Jesus was gay, he had had relations with Moses hahahha, why you think he need a cane to walk

  • bridget


    You just contradicted youself. You said that people are free to live their life how they want but you would vote yes on prop 8. Doesn’t that mean that you WANT them to live their lives the way you feel is right?By voting yes on prop 8 you’re taking away the choice of people to make up their mind as to who they want to marry. That’s why it’s considered an equality and rights issue. You’re not giving individuals their own chance instead you’re speaking for them. A legal marriage is not the matter of the Church it’s the matter of the state. If a minister decides they don’t want to marry a gay couple they don’t have to but there should be no reason why gay people can’t go through and get a legal marriage elsewhere. It’s a government institution that shows that two people are committed to one another so that if one person gets sick or what not their partner will have rights as a next of kin. By not letting them marry you’re taking that away.

    By doing this you’re opening up the door for other things to be institutionalized just because the Bible stated something. What if people decided that divorce was hurting marriage and made it illegal for people to remarry or divorce one another? Would you be okay with being forced to be committed(at least legally) to someone you don’t love for the rest of your life because of someone’s religious belief? “

  • awurbii

    I am also a christian but I see this situation to be completely undignified. I don’t tell people how to run their lives and what to do. It is their decision. I do not agree with the gay lifestyle but I am not going to hate someone just because they are gay. I am going to treat them like any other compassion and show compassion to them because that is what god wants me to do.

    The lord himself gives us a decision to turn to him. He doesn’t force us. It is our decision to dedicate our lives to God. God loves everyone. Even though we don’t always do what he wants us to do he still loves us. It says it in the bible. John 3: 16, “for god so loved the world.” God loves strippers, alcoholics, prostitutes and murderers.

    So even though I do not agree to the lifestyle I am not going to condemn another person. I am not going to shorten their rights and cause havoc because that is not what God wants me to do. So as a christian, if I lived in the states (I live in Australia), I would vote no on prop 8.

    sorry, I meant to say “like any other person”.

  • bridget


    I was under the impression that after Christ died there was no longer a need to follow all the things said in Leviticus. Paul who layed the foundation for most modern Christian Churches said that the way to God was through Jesus and that Christians did not have to follow Jewish law. Do you really want to put into law everything that’s in Leviticus? There is some very extreme stuff in there. For example:

    Lev 15:19-21 “And if a woman have an issue, and her issue in her flesh be blood, she shall be put apart seven days: and whosoever toucheth her shall be unclean until the even. And every thing that she lieth upon in her separation shall be unclean: every thing that she sitteth upon shall be unclean. And whosoever toucheth her bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.”

    TRANSLATION: When a woman has her period she should be ostracized and separated from all other people because she’s unclean.

    Back to Paul. Everyone Always quotes Romans 1:18-32 as his way of condemning homosexuality. What you have to realize is that Paul faith came through natural theology. He believed in God because of what he saw on Earth. Because of the miracles he believed God performed. Homosexuality didn’t seem “normal” or natural so obviously if it was not natural it was not of God, and if it’s not of God it’s a sin.

    Romans 1:20 “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his even his eternal power and godhead; so that they are without excuse”

    I don’t know if you know this but for a long time it was thought that people who were blind, mentally disabled, or suffered any type of physical ailment got that way because they sinned. There are countless stories of leppers being ostracized like the aforementioned passage about women and their periods. They only took in what they could physically see and understand.

    Romans 1:21 “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but because vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.”
    Romans 1:26-27 “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature. And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was met.”

    Translation: To me at least it seems like he’s trying to say that God is unhappy with their previous behavior so now has cursed them with homosexuality and uncontrollable lust. It seemed like the only way Paul could understand it because it appeared unnatural to him.
    My point is for many early Chirisians, If something didn’t match up to what they believed was work of God then it was seen as work of sin. That’s why I believe Pail wrote that scripture in Romans. It was because he couldn’t understand. Not because God told him it was wrong.

    JMO but given the fact that most people who speak out against gay marriage don’t know where it’s taken from(some will swear up and down that Jesus spoke on the issue but according to the scriptures included in the Christian canon he never did) or have a good background in the scripture they should really not be pushing it on others. Just because you can’t understand something doesn’t mean it’s wrong. The individual person should decide that for itself not have that decided for them by others.

  • bridget


    Just wanted to say I like your comment. People should make their own mind as to how they want to live(as long as it doesn’t infringe on the rights of others) and I hardly every see comments like this which is sad. People should want others to willingly follow whatever faith they want. They shouldn’t want to force it on them. So I just wanted to compliment your comment :)

  • kelsey

    that’s a great thing that shes joining this!
    i believe in same sex marriage
    i think it’s perfectly fine! :)

  • Sara

    Annabel (#17) I agree 100%

    I have a few gay friends and I have nothing against gay people, I just don’t believe in same sex marraige! Go you for setting it right :] It’s a total misnomer that Christians hate gay people. It’s so untrue. We’re all God’s creatures.

  • Annabel


    I’m not speaking for anyone, my dear. They had their “chance” to speak for themselves. We all did. It’s simple, really. I’m not out protesting against gay marriage. I’m asked to vote on whether or not I think marriage should remain between a man and a woman. I said yes. If you disagree, you’re more than welcome to vote based on your beliefs, and the majority will win out.

    Awurbi, yes I definitely understand where you’re coming from. But I’m not forcing anyone to love God, merely stating my opinion. And if you read my first post, you’ll see my main reason for even contributing to this thread was to say that just because a person opposes gay marriage, it doesn’t mean they hate gay people. I want to make that very clear. I treat them like any other human being, because they are. I just disagree with a very big part of their lifestyle. Yeah, God loves everyone, including the strippers, alcoholics, prostitutes and murderers… but He didn’t say “All right guys keep on stripping and murdering! It’s all good cuz I love ya!” He wants those who are already walking with Him to spread the good news and show others the way… how does that happen when we just let everyone do whatever the hell they want, no questions asked?

    Kamilah. See this is where I really start to question whether you own a Bible, much less read one. Because if you did, you would know I’m not just pulling this stuff out of my ass. Like I said before, please stop insulting my intelligence.

    Well, I’ll be getting a tooth pulled soon and will probably be out for a few days, so this will be my last response. I want to say more but don’t want to make this post any longer than it already is. lol. I’m glad we were able to have a (for the most part) civil argument. No hard feelings. And I must add that I’m suprised Jared would even post a hot-button issue like this on the children’s website.

  • me.

    omg, i never realised how beautiful her eyes are.

  • camie


  • camie

    i completely agree with you. This has been my viewpoint on homosexuality for years. I too am a true Catholic, but as you have said before I don’t hate them, for there is no reason to hate. But i do strongly dislike the idea of a man and man or likewise with a woman getting married in a Church in which i worship Jesus. I know it might be approved one day, but when it does i’ll just say whatever, but my views will still remain the same. I do not discriminate, and i treat them as my friends. But as Annabel has stated it’s their lifestyle which i don’t completely approve. But everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and this so happens to be mine.

  • awurbii


    I understand what you mean but this method is not the best way to go about it. You don’t reach a person by diminishing their beliefs. You have to be kind, understand their point of view and delicately sway them in the correct direction. This is just not the way to do it.

    In my eyes and in yours, the gay lifestyle is not right. We need to do what we can to reach those people but aggravating them will not help anyone. It will just cause problems and diminishing their rights, in my eyes, is a horrible idea. Look at what it has already done to people. I don’t want a gay person committing suicide because he/she is being bullied at school. We just need to care for people regardless of their beliefs and lifestyle.

  • nuts

    When is there gonna be a ballot that I can vote against Christianity?

    People don’t understand why there was a prop 8 to start with. Christians lobbied for it, tried and pushed very hard to interfere with other people’s lives. I’m an atheist and I think religion is ridiculous. I don’t like the lifestyle of religious people and I don’t care what the Bible says. But I’m not gonna try and push to ban religion because that’s none of my business.

    Saying that you don’t hate gay people but vote yes is like saying you don’t hate your neighbor, no offense, but you want them evicted anyway because they don’t believe in god or something. Such a meaningless argument. There is a reason you are not allowed to vote on everything.

  • jblover97

    i dont think its really right.no OFFENCE.but im just thinking from my point of view.
