iTunes Crops Description, Chuckle Ensues
Posted on March 1st, 2010 at 2:08 pm by Steve

That’s how iTunes showed the description for this week’s episode of This American Life. Stupidly funny.

For the record, the full description reads, “The story of how the American Psychiatric Association decided in 1973 that homosexuality was no longer a mental illness.”

An Incredible Voice

How did I miss David McAlmont for so long? He’s got an incredible three-octave range, and he’s been singing as an OUT gay man since the early 90’s. WTF!?

He’s shown above in a still frame singing a James Bond cover song, “Diamonds Are Forever.” The video is below.

so that was fast, but are the right people listening?

in case it hadn’t passed through your FB feed, the self-explanatory group, “I bet we can find 1,000,000 People who Support Same Sex Marriage,” surpassed its goal by the end of 11 days, and is still going strong.

so i guess the question is whether we have a really big choir preaching to itself, or if this kind of action really gets noticed and influences any kind of change.

In the aftermath of the Super Bowl, it’s time to revisit this “Men on Football” sketch from 1992’s In Living Color:

“The books has been read, and the library is closed!”

Gaze In The Military

“I mean, rather than campaigning for the right to serve in the military, I am going to organize a gang of faggots to extend the right to be ineligible for military service to all of humanity.” So sayeth IOZ, and I heartily concur!

When Do I Get to Vote on Your Marriage?
Posted on November 4th, 2009 at 4:26 pm by Steve

Maine repeals its same-sex marriage law, 53-47.

Makes me wonder what that dusty old Supreme Court ruling, Loving v Virginia, really means:

Marriage is one of the “basic civil rights of man,” fundamental to our very existence and survival…. To deny this fundamental freedom on so unsupportable a basis as the racial classifications embodied in these statutes, classifications so directly subversive of the principle of equality at the heart of the Fourteenth Amendment, is surely to deprive all the State’s citizens of liberty without due process of law. The Fourteenth Amendment requires that the freedom of choice to marry not be restricted by invidious racial discrimination. Under our Constitution, the freedom to marry, or not marry, a person of another race resides with the individual and cannot be infringed by the State.

Could the voters of Virginia have voted in 1968 to amend their state constitution, to reinstate their ban on interracial marriage?
