A look back at today's top stories

GAY ISSUES

Yesterday we reported on a trip that Supreme Court Justice Scalia took to Princeton University and how he was pressed about his stance on gay rights there. Well now the student who asked Scalia the question is talking about his experience. New York City Council Speaker (and potential future NYC mayor) Christine Quinn was also very offended by Scalia's remarks. And what self-respecting gay person or ally wouldn't be?

The University of Iowa is making history by becoming the first public institution to ask applicants about their orientation and gender identity. In other potential history making news, same-sex marriage may be legal in England next year. Although not if you want to have one in an Anglican Church. 

Jon Stewart sat down with gay Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson to talk about a range of issues including the upcoming Supreme Court cases and his coming out. Meanwhile, Stephen Colbert took a look at some of the most successful and juice-creating techniques for curing homosexuality

ENTERTAINMENT

George Takei recently had, what one can only presume was a bizarre, lunch with Donald Trump and today he told Thomas Roberts all about it. Also the gay winners from The Amazing Race sat down with the ladies of The Talk to share their experience on the show

WINGNUTTERY

A masked gunman opened fire in a Portland area mall last night killing himself and two others. The efforts of one Macy's employee are being called heroic today

The Family Research Council has announced that they will boycott UPS because the parcel service has cut funding to the Boy Scouts over their anti-gay policies. Wow UPS is really gonna feel that. Lindsey Graham, Joe Lieberman and John McCain got together last night to blow a whole lot of hot air and generally sound crazy regarding same-sex marriage.

VIDEOS OF THE DAY

Filmmaker Blake Pruitt interviewed a bunch of 20-somethings on gay life in New York City. I am personally shocked that I didn't recognize anyone on there from OkCupid. Also Dan Savage wants to help you find out if you are freaky in bed

2012 is winding down and Google already has its Year in Review video set to go

  2. Don't fail to notice Towleroad's repugnant attempt to link the Oregon mall shooting to the Right. Any justification? Or just pure bigotry?

  3. @ AG

    The truth hurts doesn't it?! You people are forever masturbating over your goddamn guns,it's only right for any sane,intelligent human being in this country to link these violent acts to people of your ilk. By the way,it's been my recollection that "you people" insist on repeating the same drivel that President Obama is gonna "take away your guns".You value guns over human life anyway. Own up to your batshittery! I know some of you wingnut trolls and homos can't control your childish outbursts here but just be advised that if you are looking for any sympathy as being some sort of (I must add ill-imagined) victim of bigotry,you are barking up the wrong tree.

  4. Although I wouldn't use the same words as Audi-Owner I have to agree that the right is the side of no gun control. The conservatives and the republicans are bound to no gun control and because of their insistence to block or vote against any gun control laws we will continue to suffer these mass shootings. BTW, assault rifles are meant to kill as many people as possible as quickly as possible...why are they necessary?

  5. I thinks of The University of Iowa to ask applicants about their orientation is really scandalous.

  6. Lee, here's another one. Years ago I heard that an anagram for Spiro Agnew was "grow a penis."

  7. Some key videos like with Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are not available in Canada. Is it possible to make that possible? I enjoy keeping up with some of the most intelligent and sane American thought to be heard!

    Thank you
