Equality California wants your help ending the gay blood ban: "This discriminatory lifetime ban doesn't apply to people who engage in high-risk activities, including intravenous drug use or who have unprotected sex with commercial sex workers. But it does apply to gay men who don't engage in high-risk behavior. This ban isn’t supported by science, and is opposed by the American Red Cross, the American Association for Blood Banks and America’s Blood Centers. They know that this discriminatory blood ban means that we’re less able to respond to emergencies like natural disasters and terrorist attacks…Add your name to this open letter to publicly call for an end of the discriminatory, dangerous blood ban. Every drop counts. By taking action you're joining our campaign to end the gay blood ban and joining our membership."

Do How To Get Away With Murder's gay plotlines engage in bottom shaming? "It’s amazing how much ideological weight can be carried by two little words. It would seem that in HTGAWM’s universe, bottoming, despite the preparatory efforts and assumption of health risks it requires relative to topping, is not really “doing.” To do—i.e., to be a true sexual agent; to not be a twink—is to penetrate. This evening, Oliver will “do” Connor (who will, as a consequence, apparently not be doing anything) both to obtain authentic sexual satisfaction and to punish Connor for being an inconsiderate fuck buddy. Bottoming is not a role one takes on willingly, but the price one pays for missing a date."

100 year old notebook from ill-fated expedition found beneath the arctic ice: "The book belonged to George Murray Levick, a surgeon, zoologist and photographer on Scott's 1910-1913 voyage. Levick might be best remembered for his observations of Cape Adare's Adélie penguins (and his scandalized descriptions of the birds' "depraved" sex lives). The newly discovered book also shows he kept fastidious notes, scrawled in pencil, about the photographs he took at Cape Adare."
