Cynthia Nixon and her Christine Marinoni welcomed Max Ellington Nixon-Marinoni to their family last week. A picture of the happy family has now been released. Looks like little Max definitely has Marinoni's red hair – and lots of it.
OH SNAP — Remember on Sex and the City, when Cynthia Nixon's character Miranda exclaimed about Steve, "He has only one ball and I have a lazy ovary. In what world does that create a baby?…It's like the Special Olympics of conception!" And … scene.
Speaking of gay women raising kids, Cynthia Nixon's wife Christine Marinoni ("a short man with boobs")yesterday gave birth to their son Max Ellington Nixon-Marinoni. He joins Cynthia's kids Samantha, 14, and Charles, 8, from her relationship with Danny Mozes. Just as wonderful as the newborn: the couple's ability to hide the pregnancy from the press. Just like NPH+DB!
A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit by four Rochester, New York police officers who were accused of anti-gay conduct in 2007.
Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet tweets a photo of James Marsden who will appear on the show as a neighbor whose favorite activity is removing his shirt.
Christine O'Donnell on her many, many television appearances during her youth: "In the 90s I looked at all of those TV opportunities as a ministry opportunity, as an opportunity to share my new-found faith with a television audience that otherwise would not be watching, you know when I would go on 'Politically Incorrect.' If I were planning to run for office in 10, 15 years I would have been much more guarded, not that I regret anything I've said."
An anonymous donor spent a million dollars so they could send 400,000 DVDs to every Catholic household in Minnesota. One soundbite from the DVD: “At best, so-called ‘same-sex marriage’ is an untested social experiment, and at worst, it poses a dangerous risk with potentially far-reaching consequences.”
Christians Eunice and Owen Johns were banned from becoming foster parents due to their anti-gay views. They're now taking their case to the High Court in the UK and claim that Christians are being forced to put their beliefs into the closet.
Post-DADT repeal might affect retired military chaplains: "If a chaplain preaches against homosexuality, he could conceivably be disciplined as a bigot under the military's nondiscrimination policy, the retired chaplains say. The Pentagon, however, says chaplains' religious beliefs and their need to express them will be respected."
That Rand Paul supporter who stomped on the head of a MoveOn activist earlier this week has been charged with fourth-degree assault.

Teabagger loon, “ex-gay” advocate, and not-a-witch Christine O’Donnell has admitted that she’s been illegally using campaign donations to pay her rent.
[O’Donnell] acknowledges using campaign money to pay part of the rent on her current town house. Her attorney maintains someone with the Federal Election Commission approved the arrangement, although the commission’s rules say candidates can’t use campaign money for their mortgage or rent “even if part of the residence is being used by the campaign.”
The watchdog group Citizens For Ethics in Washington responds: “Ms. O’Donnell has spent years embezzling money from her campaign to cover her personal expenses. Republicans and Democrats don’t agree on much these days, but both sides should agree on one point: thieves belong in jail not the United States Senate.”
She crusaded to ‘cure’ gays through prayer, insinuated her primary opponent was gay, supported a group who smeared an openly gay Ambassador candidate, thinks the government spent too much fighting AIDS, and called homosexuality an “identity disorder.” She’s Christine O’Donnell, the Republican nominee for Senate in Delaware – and Chris Coons is the only person standing in her way.
Chris Coons is an innovative, twice-elected county executive and a steadfast supporter of equality who has pledged to be a voice for fairness in the Senate. We can’t afford for him to lose.
In the 1990’s, O’Donnell founded an organization which sought to cure homosexuality and “sexual brokenness” through prayer – a practice debunked as harmful by the American Psychological Association. And only four years ago, she said, “Homosexuality is an identity adopted through societal factors. It’s an identity disorder.”

With every step she takes toward the United States Senate, Christine O’Donnell’s fringe, hateful views threaten to become more legitimized. What’s worse, she could win: In the two weeks since she upset a popular incumbent congressman in the Republican primary, she’s raised .6 million.
Last week, CNN released a poll last week showing Chris Coons has a wide lead over anti-gay/anti-masturbation/witchcraft dabbler/teabagger Christine O’Donnell.
Coons got into this race when no on thought he had a chance, since Mike Castle was viewed as the presumptive victor in both the GOP primary and the general election. Now, he’s got a very good chance to be the next Senator from Delaware.
We’ve heard a lot about O’Donnell. Too much. Just four years ago, in 2006, O’Donnell opined that homosexuality was an “identity disorder.”
We should also know some things about Chris Coons, the Democratic nominee and potential U.S. Senator.
Last Tuesday, I got the chance to talk to Chris Coons on Tuesday, shortly before the Senate voted to end filibuster of the Defense Authorization bill.
My focus was on Coon’s LGBT positions, since that’s the issue about which I’m most concerned these days. Also, keep in mind, the winner of this race becomes the Senator upon winning. So, if there’s any chance to pass the DADT language in the lame-duck, we’ll need every possible vote.
The first thing Coons told me was “If I was in the Senate, I’d vote to repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” That’s a good start.
Chris has always been a supporter of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community here in Delaware. As County Executive, he created an external Diversity Commission that reviews county policies and practices and includes a representative from the LGBT community. Chris has also ensured domestic partnership benefits in New Castle County government and supported LGBT issues debated in the state legislature. If elected to the US Senate, he will continue fighting for LGBT issues such as: marriage equality for all Americans, repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and the Defense of Marriage Act, and supporting the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) and Uniting American Families Act (UAFA).
Another supporter of marriage equality would be a very good thing.
Coons also told me he would co-sponsor legislation to repeal DOMA. To date, there’s no DOMA repeal bill in that body. Paul Hodes also told us he’s co-sponsor a Senate bill.
And, support for the other legislation is important since none of it passed this year.
Apparently, tonight, we’re going to find out if Mike Castle, who lost to O’Donnell, will enter this race as a write-in candidate.
For voters in Delaware and anyone who cares about LGBT equality, Chris Coons is the candidate.
