I bought a box of teddy grahams.

And I did so because of this commercial: A gay couple?  Raising well-adjusted kids just like every major psychological body says they do?  Whoa, now that’s edgy. And an interracial couple?  Being portrayed as wholesome and stable in the melting pot of America?  Way to push the envelope. Reading the youtube comments on that video [Read More...]

Same sex marriages from other states to be recognized in Ohio.

I was worried after taking the last three days off to do Reasonfest that there would be tons to catch up on, but it looks like the news slowed down a bit for me.  Thanks, news! But then I was worried I wouldn’t have much to write about today.  Fortunately, I came upon this little [Read More...]

Did you know that Day of Silence silences conservatives and is medical malpractice?

Day of Silence is an annual day of protest against gay people being bullied into the closet.  Protesters remain silent all day in solidarity of closeted LGBT people, sometimes wearing tape over their mouths.  I participated every year in college and even helped organize some years. I thought I was making plain my opposition to [Read More...]

The Onion cited by homophobic vice mayor in Arizona to praise Fred Phelps.

The Onion’s slogan is “The most trusted name in news.”  The irony is that The Onion is a satire news site, some would say obviously so.  But to some people elected on the supposed ground of being at least equally as competent as his peers, The Onion may actually be the most trusted name in [Read More...]

Maryland lawmaker Jon S. Cardin isn’t messing around with stopping gay reparative therapy.

Jon S. Cardin is a badass.  Here’s the scoop: earlier in the month Cardin announced he was submitting a bill that would ban gay-conversion therapy in the state.  Christopher Doyle, founder of the International Healing Foundation (which ironically uses tactics that the American Psychological Association has said have the opposite effect of healing) went public [Read More...]

Discrimination against transgender people about to be illegal in Maryland.

It’s a happy Friday, it seems.  :)  Michaelyn had a short day of classes, so I’m looking forward to spending a day with her. In even happier news, the legislature in Maryland has passed a bill that would make discrimination against transgender people illegal.  The governor has said he will sign it: Legislation barring discrimination [Read More...]

Pat Robertson: Jesus wouldn’t have baked a gay couple a wedding cake.

It’s a pretty slow day in the news (which, for the type of content I use, is a pretty happy thing).  But if the lord doesn’t provide content, Pat Robertson sure will.  He thinks gay people have become the oppressors…because they’re getting closer and closer to being treated like everybody else. “I think you got [Read More...]

Bill Donohue won’t march in Pride Parade because of “gay training sessions”…which don’t exist.

Much like American Atheists president David Silverman going into a field of opposing thought by attending CPAC, the Catholic League’s very own Bill Donohue applied to march in this year’s LGBT Pride Parade in New York City.  Donohue was accepted, but said he would not march because of mandatory “gay training sessions”.  Donohue said on [Read More...]

James David Manning advocates stoning gay people to death.

I can’t help but notice that this nut hasn’t been arrested for attempted murder yet, which means he’s all about other people, not himself, stoning homosexuals to death: James David Manning, a pastor from New York City, is calling for Christians to stone gays. Manning’s ATLAH World Missionary Church has a new announcement: ‘Jesus would [Read More...]

Using divorce to challenge same-sex marriage ban in South Carolina.

This is interesting.  A couple in South Carolina that has been together long enough to be considered common law married under state statutes prior to the passing of the state’s constitutional ban on same sex marriage now wants to get divorced.  But they can’t get divorced unless the state considers them married: A suit filed [Read More...]
