    thank goodness that research, historical and sociological, also proves that LGBT couples marrying has no averse effects on how heterosexuals raise their own children.

    gay couples will have children whether they can legally marry or get a civil union or not. denying them those rights only puts their children in jeopardy, therefore these conservatives hate gays more than they actually care about children.

    but we already knew that.

    Hey, if the gay community was able to shut down the AT&T-T-Mobile merger then we can stop the GOP, the Tea-Party and re-elect Obama. We are POWER! BTW, the failure of that merger cost AT&T 4 Billion dollars – that’s what they have to pay T-Mobile. AT&T needs Dish Network so they will go after them next. SHUT ‘EM DOWN!

    So happy for Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell of The Fabulous Beekman Boys on their engagement. 13 years together is never too late.

    and GOP = Gay-Obsessed Party. Keep it up. We are POWER!

    “‘This great Dane has been enjoyed by millions of children and adults worldwide'”

    I started giggling at the spontaneous mental image of Hans Christian Anderson as Marmaduke.

  4. KP says

    The whole AT&T/GLAAD clusterf**k was a great moment for LGBT bloggers and a wake up call to LGBT groups that had gotten too cozy with corporate sponsors. I’m not sure I agree with Signorile’s opinion that it helped scuttle the deal. During the whole brouhaha, we never heard from AT&T. It didn’t seem like they were fazed at all. It think the Justice Department played the largest part in sinking the merger.

  5. Gregv says

    It’s always annoying to hear bigots who know nothing about the social sciences citing this elusive and non-existent “research” that proves kids fare better with opposite-sex parents and that equal marriage rights are a detriment to anyone at all.
    The leading professional organizations in every related social science from pediatrics to psychology, psychiatry and the medical profession have ALL made policy statements that their research shows exactly the opposite, that kids of same-sex parents tend to do very well and that marriage rights for the parents of those children are beneficial.
    (I can easily post numerous links to policy statements, but it’s cumbersome to do on an I-phone).

    Rick Perry – ‘I’d grow one but I’ve got too many — I’d look like an old mangy dog.’ ”

    ok! he has too many beards – now who is going to explain to Perry what he really just said?

    not me…

  7. Mitch says

    Becoming Chaz; Being Chaz; rounds of talk show appearances, in the limelight on Dancing With The Stars…you chose a lot of amplification…shameless self-promotion with no respect for your own privacy and now you are expecting that from others? Seriously?

  8. Danny says

    If restricting marriage to heterosexuals is so gdm good, how come that institution has been collapsing for the last five decades without our help? Where, Mr Australian MP, is the evidence that the one-man-one-woman model is such a success?
