Towleroad Talking Points: Two Nut-Loving Marines
BY SAM GREISMAN
A look back at today's top stories
Two more sports figures have added their name to the growing list of athletes who support gay rights. This time, Chicago area legends Ernie Banks and Richard Dent have signed a letter urging the Illinois House to pass a marriage equality bill. The Mexican government has taken astance against hate speech; the country's Supreme Court has ruled that gay slurs are not protected under freedom of expression. The FBI has announced that it will investigate the likely hate-driven slaying of a gay mayoral candidate in Mississippi.
If you are a gay person living in Tennessee and desperately looking for a silver lining, you can look to the fact that the "Don't Say Gay" Bill is just about as unpopular as gay marriage. I guess you have to really want to see it. A horrible story out of Texas where a woman is facing charges after brutally beating her son after walking in on him committing a gay act; what's worse is that the arresting officer said he agreed with her. C'mon Texas! Also a city councilman in Pennsylvania is taking flak after he sent out a memo announcing that someone was gay.
