What NOM's shift to trans-bashing means: "NOM had a terrible year in which the Supreme Court struck down a key section of the Defense of Marriage Act and invalidated Prop 8. Last week alone the group saw Illinois and Hawaii move forward on marriage equality. Its own fundraising appears to have dwindled from the days when NOM would make splashy announcements about big donors. NOM and other groups think they can raise a lot of money on fear and ignorance about trans people."

Bloomberg: How people lie about gay sex and homophobia. "Recent research uncovers strong evidence of preference falsification in the U.S. When people are assured of anonymity, it turns out, a lot more of them will acknowledge that they have had same-sex experiences and that they don’t entirely identify as heterosexual. But it also turns out that when people are assured of anonymity, they will show significantly higher rates of anti-gay sentiment. These results suggest that recent surveys have been understating, at least to some degree, two different things: the current level of same-sex activity and the current level of opposition to gay rights."
