Thanks, gay marrieds! Love, straight feminists.

There are many parts of Judge Walker’s decision overturning Prop 8 that are delicious reading, but the most interesting part was how Walker repeatedly stressed that marriage had already changed—that strict gender roles that justified restricted marriage in the past have already gone away. We all know what he’s talking…

Yes, homophobes, your straight neighbors are Doing It

The Sexist reports on this story that PFOX (a major “ex-gay” organization that exists primarily to hoodwink people, especially conservatives with gay relatives, into thinking that it’s a choice) is pushing about a woman who is filing a complaint because her daughter’s “innocence” was destroyed because the girl’s teacher not…

Rep. Steve King: marriage equality ‘is a purely socialist concept’

Sometimes my head just hurts from reading TEH STUPID. Rep. Steve King (R-IA) opened his trap and revealed that his grasp of reality is tenuous at best. Using logic that only someone like Rick Santorum can understand, King went on WingNutDaily radio to discuss the impact marriage equality has been…

The best argument against gay marriage ever

Via Dan Savage, I now give you the best argument ever against gay marriage, by David Klinghoffer: Consider this piece from the first century BCE poet Catullus (Carmen 61:134-141), in which the poet addresses himself to a bridegroom on the eve of his nuptials: “You are said to find it…

Ft. Worth police raid gay bar on anniversary of Stonewall

Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, and Nancy Goldstein has a good piece up explaining how far gays and lesbians have come since then, and how far they have to go. She cites bans on gay marriage, higher poverty rates, lack of health care, and DADT as…

Your Marriage Will Be Impacted By Marriage

I’m watching Maggie Gallagher on MSNBC arguing that same-sex marriage will impact your marriage because it’s the government defining marriage and that’s bad for marriage. She also wrote this piece on same-sex marriage, beginning with this line: Last week, the Iowa supreme court found a constitutional right to gay marriage,…

National Organization for Marriage’s new tactic: fear-mongering without using the word ‘religion’

These folks have nothing left in the tool box after the Iowa ruling decimated the excuse that religious opposition should govern civil law. So now the folks at the National Organization for Marriage have decided to send out e-blasts and a new video that uses a multi-racial set of actors…

Freepers freak as the Homosexual Agenda scores wins in Vermont and D.C.

Yet another state falls prey to the homosexualists, as the Vermont Legislature voted to override the veto of a marriage equality bill by Gov. Jim Douglas today. Between Iowa, Vermont, and Washington, DC (its Council voted today to recognize same-sex marriages from other states), the Sodomy Squadron is well on…

Iowa Supreme Court rules in favor of marriage equality

After April 24th, gay and lesbian couples will be able to marry in the heartland. So much for blaming the coastal liberal radical homosexuals for this one. Des Moines Register: The Iowa Supreme Court this morning struck down a 1998 state law that limits marriage to one man and one…

I’d love to put it to bed, but it’s still up and walking around

Pam’s piece below debunking the idea that the anti-gay lobby can be compromised with on gay marriage really got me to thinking, as did Jesse’s post on Lord Saletan trying to find some brilliant compromise on abortion. I’m (shockingly) feeling 90% on Obama, which is much better than I’d hoped…
