RoadHuffPost interviews out Alabama lawmaker Patricia Todd about the challenges of LGBT rights in her state: "Todd, a Democrat who joined the legislature in 2006, is Alabama's first out lawmaker. Nearly all of the bills she has worked on have had nothing to do with her sexual orientation. But earlier this month, she introduced a bill she said she hopes will be the first of many that could change life for gay, lesbian and bisexual Alabamans. The bill would invalidate the state's sex-education policy, which requires teachers to emphasize that 'homosexuality is not a lifestyle acceptable to the general public and that homosexual conduct is a criminal offense under the laws of the state.'"

  1. That machine gun bra is an old prop. Of course I can see how the kneejerk brigade will latch onto it instead of continuing to put pressure on lawmakers.

  2. Homosexual conduct is NOT criminal in any state, including Alabama. How can the state require teachers to teach something that is patently false? SEems like a lawsuit would be a cakewalk.

  3. Homosexuality is not a super-sin.

    "It's one of many, including adultery — other things — lying, cheating, gossiping; it's right there in the list."

    Then why does FOF, NOM, etc put it at the top of their list of things to persecute, to the exclusion of all the others? Why is this their crusade?

  5. Hmm, it would take a genius to get around the NYPD thing with GPS. Gosh, I dunno. Maybe take the pills out of the bottles like every dealer does anyway?

    That really takes thought.

  6. Why is Lance Armstrong's story so important to be posted on Towleroad? I mean he is not a gay man so who cares. It's just another straight dude I could give f** about.

  7. Zack Snyder already confirmed that the rumor is false and he is not currently working on anything Star Wars related.

  8. Oh RK not every story here is just "gay". There are many news items and stories that aren't gay specific but may be of interest because you's topical and it's what a lot of people are talking about. Do you go through your day ignoring everything that is not "gay'? If you only see the world through your gay colored glasses maybe you need to be open your eyes to the world around you.

    Nothing is stopping you from starting your own gay only site. Might I suggest calling it "bitter tight as* road"?

  9. the lance armstrong story is SO important because think about the future!

    when the wall street criminals go unpunished and the economy collapses and any nutbag with an uneducated take on the 2nd Amendment is packing semi-automatic heat, the real issue will be that nation's children on bicycles will be at a disadvantage from all the other cyclists who used steroids.

    or something.

  10. So it's insensitive that Gaga wears a bra with guns because of the Newton thing.... but when she wore them earlier when the "Born this Way" video came out it wasn't insensitive even though thousands of innocent children had been gunned down over the last decade during the Iraq/Afghanistan conflict (amongst other places). But I guess those kids were brown and not American

  11. Armstrong has plenty of company. At the end of day, all things considered and being a level playing field, he still performed outstandingly. Besides, it's all bread and circus distractions.

  13. Of course, typical PC extreme leftists will ignore that many innocent white people, like my late father, die from having their anuses over-stretched by big black penises every year.

  16. Oh look KIWI attacks RATBSTD now with his fake filth. He does the same to RICK because he can't stand being thwarted by differing opinions, and besides we all deserve it because we don't post our URL's like he does living at home and never needing to get a job.

    You have no idea what Lil Frankenfag would stoop to...a creep in sheeps clothing. And to think I once admired him.

    Oh and "Homosexuaity is not a super sin?" Unless it's KIWI...who makes it so.

  18. I take it that the sex ed was passed before Lawrence v Texas, and remained on the books unchanged. Technically, the law remains on the books, but it cannot be enforced. So, "the law is on the books" and "it's against the law" are two different things. This is one of the main weapons of civil disobedience protesters. They can challenge laws if they are charged with the crime. They can say that what they did "was not against the law" and get a judge to agree by throwing out the law.

  19. I more important fact is while she talks a lot about bullying she doesn't seem to care about the rampant cyber bullying going on on her website and other places. Her little monsters regularly make death threats against other celebrities they feel have somehow wronged her. And she does nothing. All sbe w I like Gaga but increasingly I think she is just all hype or the Gaga machine has spun out of control.
