Speaking of underage sex; just when it seemed that the sex scandal involving the man who voices Elmo was about to fade away it has come roaring back.

New GOP golden boy Marco Rubio was recently profiled in GQ and threw a bone to Creationists.



Two years removed from a landmark case involving gay adoption in Florida, the ACLU checks in with the plaintiffs. In Los Angeles a Republican super PAC plans to spend a ton of money to try and elect Kevin James (not the actor) as the city's first openly gay Mayor.

How Ryan Gosling manages to still look hot with his face totally beaten in is beyond me. And a member of a UK X-Factor boyband just came out.
