Towleroad Talking Points: Some GOPers Side With Love

A look back at today's top stories

GAY ISSUES

As we close in on the date that the Supreme Court will hear arguments in the Proposition 8 case, more than 75 leaders of the Republican Party have signed a brief that urges the court to rule in favor of gay rights. In addition a number of pro-equality companies have announced that they will also be petitioning the court. Ari Waldman looks at what this (and the plaintiff's brief) means for a potential filing from President Obama

In a display of what brotherly bond is all about a Boston area fraternity is attempting to raise money for one of their transgender frat brothers. Also a gay couple from Israel has turned to the internet for help in overcoming the country's ban on surrogacy

WINGNUTTERY

The Westboro Baptist Church is having a rough go of it in the Los Angeles area. First they were out-protested in Santa Monica and now a reporter totally dominates a group of them in Malibu. Their partner in hate Pat Robertson is ready to stand up and fight against the nearly insurmountable evil that is the Goodwill store. The preacher from the anti-gay megachurch that Tim Tebow spurned is appalled that saying everyone should believe the same thing he does, can be considered discrimination

Also rapper A$AP Rocky says he doesn't care if people say he is gay because he gets mad bitches and they are just jealous. Spoken like a true middle schooler.

  2. Pat is a senile old man that has too many followers. What senior citizen home would want him?

  3. "Also rapper A$AP Rocky says he doesn't care if people say he is gay because he gets mad bitches and they are just jealous. Spoken like a true middle schooler."

    *rolls eyes* And you would prefer he handled it how, exactly? Kicking and screaming and saying how awful it is to be gay and how horrible anyone would accuse him? Or would you prefer something along the lines of making it seem like it's no big deal to be gay, but still saying he's straight and the only reason he's getting this flak is because of haters?

    He did the latter, but like a middle schooler who doesn't get it you decided to make a snarky comment instead. Good work.

  4. Also- not referring to the words he used. He is a rapper. Expecting him to speak differently is like expecting the president to start speaking like a rapper.
