 roadThe school that denied lesbian Constance McMillen her right to go to prom suspended a transgender student back in January: "People were talking about him all day, trying to get a look at him," said McMillen. "It was insane, it was ridiculous, it made me so mad. They said he was causing a distraction with what he was wearing but it was a half day of school and people didn’t have time to get used to him."

 roadNovelist Nicholas Sparks talks to Movieline: "I don’t know that I could [write a gay love story]. I’ve been asked about it. I have no moral qualms about doing it. I don’t know if I could do it well. Asking that kind of question is like asking, “Could you do a love story with more of a thriller element, like The Bourne Identity?” Enh. I’d have to read a lot more in that genre. I don’t know that I can write a western, I’m pretty sure I couldn’t write science fiction — my science isn’t strong enough."

    There’s a movie called “Ticked-Off Trannies With Knives?” Awesome. Thanks, GLAAD, for finally being useful and pointing out a movie I had never heard of BUT NOW MUST SEE.

    Itawamba Agricultural High School apparently has a history of discriminating against queers, and then weaseling out of any lawsuit and incriminations. In Constance’s case, the school insisted they’re just coincidentally canceling prom the one year a same-sex couple wants to attend. In the case of Juin, they suspended him repeatedly but refused to give a reason why so the ACLU couldn’t sue them (or so the school thinks). One would think with all this aversion to lawsuits, the school would actually consider complying with the law, but they apparently really want to be bigoted and really want to get away with it. Scumbags.

    I can just see the fraudulent GOP attack ads coming our way this fall … “[Blank] actually supports giving Viagra to little Tommy’s rapist”. Who’s not going to be stunned by that? Millions who don’t know (or don’t care to know) the story behind that outlandish claim, that’s who.

    God bless the Senators who stood their ground, despite knowing this bull would be coming to their doorstep soon.

    I can’t seem to get this posted… so here goes again. According to the CBC, only 200 or so people were there to protest her, 2000 was the entire crowd. Though I doubt the remaining were all supporters, there was no real danger or threats and her “handlers” cancelled the event, not the university. She was paid anyway. It was all to get her press. She just appeared on “Power and Politics” normally a top notch show, insulted the entire country, refused to answer questions and ran off, flicking her hair in the wind. We don’t let Rev Phelps over the border, why her? She’s just as hateful.
