DNAYou1NewsIcon How valuable is your DNA information? Not very, according to New Scientist: "Having your genome open to public scrutiny obviously raises privacy issues. Employers and insurers may be interested. Embarrassing family secrets may be exposed.But overall, personal genetic information is probably no more revealing than other sorts. In fact there are reasons to believe that it is less so: would an insurance company really go to the trouble of decoding a genome to discover a slightly elevated risk of cancer or Alzheimer's disease?"

1NewsIcon After being booted from Fox News, Sarah Palin is optimistic about her future in media: "As far as long-term plans, the door is wide open... I know the country needs more truth-telling in the media, and I'm willing to do that. So, we shall see."

MenInEden1NewsIcon Same-sex desire in the fur trade: "William Drummond Stewart, a member of the lower Scottish nobility and the subject of this biography, came primarily to hunt and to experience the wide-open freedom of the northern Great Plains and Rockies (think modern-day African safaris). Stewart’s story, however, and as the subtitle of this book implies, has a twist: He was an openly gay man at a time when being gay was to risk ignominious public punishment (including hanging in some areas of the British isles) and the certain ruination of reputation and fortune."

1NewsIcon Is Wyoming thawing on gay issues: "It remains to be seen whether gay rights supporters in the overwhelmingly Republican Wyoming Legislature can pass measures that would prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, create civil unions or even gay marriage. So far, nine of the legislature's 78 Republicans have signed on as co-sponsors of the various bills. Eight of the Legislature's 12 Democrats are on board with at least one of the bills. Committee hearings on two of the bills were scheduled for Monday."

  1. Well, I'm certainly glad my marriage last Friday (Yay!) has caused an Episcopal to switch. Anything to ruin the moral fabric of this country!!!! I can guarantee that his life has not changed since we got married.

  2. Whoa, I am running out the door to get Men of Eden, the story of one man's life as an unabashed lover of men in the 1840's in North America. A gay man with real boyfriends on the American frontier! The telling quote "...young men in an Eden only of Adams." Take that Hollywood, John Wayne and Clint Eastwood.

    So, OMG the future is bright when we can begin to learn from new and liberated scholars that men, thorough going outdoorsmen, were making love together and living lifetimes together in the wild West. Some of these guys were hot and bromance was only the beginning.

  4. The weird thing about the Episcopal priest story is that the Catholic Church does not require those who join the priesthood after marriage to be celibate. If his wife died he couldn't remarry, but that's the only rule. Voluntarily being celibate (which, to be honest, he probably is anyways and his wife is probably not too upset about) would seem theologically to be more "intrinsically disordered" than homosexual sex. Geesh.

  5. The Chris Hughes story posted earlier:

    Does anybody else have problems whenever you got to a story on Towleroad that has a video link to ABC? I don't even look at or run the video, just read the story. As you exit the page, a script error box comes up and and it asks you if you want to continue running the script, but no matter what you choose the error keeps poping up and locks everything up. I have to close IE in the task manager. It happens EVERY time there is an ABC video link and it happens on several different computers.

  6. Sounds like The New Scientist is determined to convince us all to just accept the inevitable corporate invasion of privacy as something perfectly reasonable and sane.

    But hey, it's a "scientific" argument, so it's conclusions must be true, right ?

  7. On a note slightly related to two of the stories referred to here, the Lance Armstrong story on 60 Minutes made him seem like among the least likable people ever.

  8. Sarah Palin, you wouldn't know truth if it was putting heavy make up on you. Fox has more pundits than it needs and you happen to be the least of them. Take your sleazy easy millions and lose yourself in Alaska where you belong.

  9. The JMG post on the former Episcopal priest shows him to be a real looser. He got history wrong: he said the ordination of a gay priest in New England preceded the ordination of women. If he were so serious about traditional theology, he should have left in 1976 with the ordination of women, not three years ago before the rite to bless same-sex couples was passed by General Convention.
