A look back at today's top stories
GAYS AND ANTI-GAYS
Frank Ocean recently spoke with GQ about his coming out. On the topic of his bisexuality he says he doesn't want to be put in "labels and boxes and sh*t". Androgyny being what it is in fashion, I suppose it was only a matter of time before a woman began modeling men's clothes.
Former RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman has launched a non-profit with the intent of bringing Republicans on board the fight for marriage equality.
Anti-gay Washington pastor Ken Hutcherson had his feelings hurt that NOM didn't involve him more in the fight against gay marriage. Also Bryan Fischer says that the only way to know the age of the Earth is via accounts from people who were actually there when it was formed. I hope he isn't talking about himself.
During a stop on her promotional tour for Silver Linings Playbook, Jennifer Lawrence said that Josh Hutcherson is having a bromance with one of his Hunger Games co-stars. Take a listen to Britney Spears and Will.I.Am's new single.

Fiona Apple writes brutally heart-wrenching letter to fans about her dying dog: "I have a dog Janet, and she’s been ill for almost two years now, as a tumor has been idling in her chest, growing ever so slowly... She's my best friend and my mother and my daughter, and my benefactor, and she's the one who taught me what love is... I can't come to South America. Not now. When I got back from the last leg of the US tour, there was a big, big difference. She doesn't even want to go for walks anymore... So I am staying home, and I am listening to her snore and wheeze, and reveling in the swampiest, most awful breath that ever emanated from an angel."

John Boehner reverses course, says he'll repeal Obamacare through oversight: "The tactics of our repeal efforts will have to change. But the strategic imperative remains the same. If we’re serious about getting our economy moving again, solving our debt and restoring prosperity for American families, we need to repeal Obamacare and enact common-sense, step-by-step reforms that start with lowering the cost of health care. [...] Congress has a constitutional responsibility to conduct thorough oversight of the executive branch, and congressional oversight will play a critical role in repealing Obamacare going forward."
TIME profiles Casey Legler:
Legler landed the modeling gig this summer when her friend, the photographer Cass Bird, invited her at the last minute to participate in the role of a man for a photo shoot for Muse magazine. The photos were shared with an agent at Ford Models, and the next day, Legler was invited to sign a contract to work exclusively from their male roster.
“This is a unique little moment that fashion is allowing to have happen,” Legler says.
