 roadACLU and Lambda Legal preparing lawsuit against Hawaii over civil unions: “Enough is enough. Infinite patience in the face of discrimination is irresponsible. Our clients suffer every day from unfair taxes and denial of basic legal protections that every family in Hawai`i needs. Although same-sex couples can’t hope today for the full equality of marriage, Hawai`i’s constitution still guarantees equal rights and responsibilities to everyone, gay and heterosexual alike. Because the Legislature has ducked its responsibility multiple sessions in a row, we have no choice now but to bring our clients’ legal claims to court.”

    BoingBoing also followed the Daily Mail post about the cheetas… unfortunately, it looks like the Daily Mail fabricated the “happily ever after” part of the story; the cheetahs ate the impala.

    Check the photos at the bottom of the page:

    “After playing with the young Impala, Cheetah brothers have killed it and eaten.”

  2. Clay says

    re: John Baird, the “outed” Canadian cabinet minister. To be outed, I think your homosexuality has to be a secret. I’m Canadian and I’ve known for years without ever meeting the man or even lived in the same part of the country.

  3. Chris says

    Agreed Clay, while Baird has avoided questions about his sexuality he hasn’t gone to any lengths to hide it either. I think it is a mark of how far we have come in Canada that the media here have generally treated this as a non-story.

  4. Craig says

    Baird was an example of a politician who was in what I’ve come to call “the glass closet”. He certainly wasn’t hiding anything in his personal life — he wasn’t hiding behind an opposite-sex marriage or anything, and most people who know him personally or are tuned in about politics were already well aware — but he avoided actually talking about it on the record.

    So he certainly wasn’t “closeted” in the “Larry Craig” sense of the word, but he wasn’t “out” in the public sense of that word, either.

    To be fair, I don’t think Pamela Taylor was intending to cause trouble for him — because he is out in his personal life, she almost certainly didn’t think she was saying anything extraordinary.
