RoadNathaniel Frank: The shamelessness of anti-gay crusader Mark Regnerus. "What makes this all the more galling is that the Michigan couple is raising three special-needs children the women are trying to adopt from the foster care system. Research shows that gays and lesbians are more likely to adopt difficult-to-place children from foster care. It’s bad enough to claim, incorrectly, that straight couples make better homes for kids than gay couples. But it’s an outrage to support policy that could let kids languish in group homes rather than live with loving, capable parents. Indeed it’s a shocking goal for conservative Christians claiming to care about vulnerable children to be pursuing."

  2. I will look forward to seeing that documentary of Mark Bingham.
    He was such a hero and he must be praised and his name kept alive forever.

    Every time we are denigrated by bigots and haters, let's remind them that it was a gay Rugby Player from San Francisco who saved the Capitol building by resisting terror.he was the first person to fight back after 9 11.

    where is his posthumous Congressional Medal of Honour ?

  6. Funny thing about that RuPaul decoy album... it promotes piracy, because it's clearly a collectible item due to the unique pirate-related content, and is only available at "several popular Torrent sites that traffic in bootleg music" including The Pirate Bay. (If it matters, no I haven't heard the album, but I have heard OF it). Fortunately, as it was freely given away by its creator specifically to promote the underlying album, it's legal to download.

    Oh, and copying is never theft or stealing. Theft and stealing require the original item to be removed from where it was, and that clearly does not happen in copying. What copying can be is copyright violation, which is typically a civil violation, but is increasingly being made into a crime by desperate corporate welfare bums attempting to prop up a failed business model with the threat of the destruction of individual lives through outrageous fines well out of proportion to anything relating to the product. Meanwhile the bankers who really DID steal grandma's retirement fund and then crashed the economy still walk free today.

  9. People are to sensitive. While no big fan of chelsea handler, how was that racist?

  10. I watch Chelsea Lately every day. If she has a black comedian on, she'll make jokes about every black stereotype to the comedian. If she has an Asian comedian on, she'll make jokes about every Asian stereotype to the comedian. Don't get me started on what she says about Mexicans. She makes it really clear that when she sees a person, she sees his or her ethnicity first. That's unfortunate to only see a person for the color of his or her skin. With Chelsea, it's "black" this and "black" that. One day, she'll see that human beings are all the same and skin color doesn't define you.
