1. “My name is Brittany Novotny, and I was born in the wrong body.” Transgender Oklahoma City attorney Brittany Novotny, who challenged bigoted State Rep. Sally Kern last November, has recorded an “It Gets Better” video (above) aimed at trans youth.
2. Finally, a gay beer! But it’s not called Schmitts Gay. A Mexican brewery has released two “Artisan Honey-Ales” targeted specifically to the LGBT community, called “Salamandra” and “Purple Hand,” and the first 500 cases have already sold out. Christ, what are we, a bunch of alcoholics?
3. The latest weather-related disaster to strike North Texas is ROLLING BLACKOUTS that are only supposed to last 15 minutes but may in fact last just long enough for you to FREEZE TO DEATH!!! But don’t even think about trying to leave the house because it’s DANGEROUSLY COLD and there’s ICE EVERYWHERE, so you’re likely to GET KILLED IN AN AWFUL WRECK!!! So just stay inside and watch the news, which will come up with something new to scare the shit out of you and boost their ratings, at least until the power goes out.
Watch out Grindr and Scruff, Gaydar is hot on your heels. Gaydar.net unveiled its new app today on iTunes. By the looks of the chart below, it should be just what dudes need to hook up, or at least make friends. Some of the options sound pretty nice. You can select what you’re looking for (to chat, to date, to, you know) and change it on a daily basis. Sometimes a guy just doesn’t want a boyfriend. You know who you are.
“I confess that we are a nation who has killed our children. I confess that we are a nation who has walked away from the family and allowed divorce even among our ranks. We have walked away from the biblical definition of marriage; one man, one woman, the two become one flesh,” Angle said. “We as a nation have been walking away from our constitutional freedom and relying on government instead to take care of the widow and the orphan…we’re saying ‘well, the government we have all these programs now, aid for families with dependent children and medicare and social security.”
Oh yea, Sharron? Well okay, fine: Your bridesmaids dresses sound kind of lacking. There, I said it. Green organza gowns with green picture hats accompanied by a bouquet of salmon gladoli and fern? Sounds drab. Boring. Yuck. ::Harumph!::
Oh, don’t listen. I’m just kidding, S.A. The dresses sound fine, perfectly complimenting your own gown. It’s just that your words wound so much, S Dog. Here in a world where we’re trying to help gay kids, it’s sad to hear of another potential U.S. Senator who wishes to push outdated, offensive biases into the national discussion. Those cut right to the core. So you’ll have to forgive my catty comments about your bridesmaid choices — they’re born not out of true style assessment, but rather staunch self-protection against dangerous discourse that cruelly undermines millions of American families! Families like mine.
