I know two young girls and their two fathers. The girls are amazing and the two dads are solid as a rock. All four of them are lucky to have found each other. Imagine a 15-year-old kid saying, "I have two moms, it's cool." I don't fear that at all.

Although the title pisses me of (he didn't 'go gay' he's just out now), I'm really excited about the way the writer's handling this whole thing. Ten points for you sir!

Pardon my French, but...Huffpost... WHAT THE FUCK.

 

I'm not going to try to choose between BASIC RIGHTS that should just BE. I'm not going to say that gay marriage takes precedence over the right for trans*, polyamorous, or other people in this movement to get married. I hate that it's even called "gay marriage"-- I don't even plan on getting "gay married". Frankly I don't even know what that would even entail! It's just marriage, plain and simple. And, it should just be an open legal/spiritual option for everyone.

 

Aside from that, marriage has become too much of a focal point! There are so many other issues to at hand. Let's open our eyes a little here. No one's basic rights should be voted on. This whole thing makes me want to punt a baby. 

 

...Darn it internet, you got me all fired up.

Autostraddle — MSNBC Talks To And About Trans People For An Hour, Doesn’t F*ck It Up | Queer Media | Scoop.it
MSNBC's 20-minute segment on "Trans in America" is so good I can't believe it actually happened. Guests include Kate Bornstein, Mara Keisling and Mel Wymore.

*Makes happy grabby hands at computer screen.*

 

I've read Kate Bornstein's books and I've met Mara Keisling. Top-notch humans, those two!

And with that said, may I introduce to you... Andrea Gibson!

 

"Andrea is an award-winning poet and activist. She lives in Colorado. Her poetry focuses on gender norms, politics, and the struggles queer people face in today's society. Gibson disclosed that she chose to write what was in her bones and thus these subject matters are what came out. On top of using poetry to express what she feels and tackle real issues, she is involved with many group activists. She often performs at Take Back the Night Events, LGBT events, Pride events, Trans* events, Anti-war rallies, Peace rallies, organizations against the occupation of Palestine, groups focused on examining the wrongs of capitalism, patriarchy and white supremacy. She also works with a group called Vox Feminista whose model is to "comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable" on all these issues."

New Girl: Bully

Jess gets tough in the classroom....

 

---------

I was watching this episode of New Girl recently, and it was neat to see that they slipped in a character with two moms. I don't have much to say about this one. I just wanted to share this because it's refreshing to see that in mainstream media. I'm glad that it's becoming more and more commonplace.

Why It Is Important to Have Queer Comics - Huffington Post (blog)

Why It Is Important to Have Queer Comics - Huffington Post (blog) | Queer Media | Scoop.it

"Like many other artistic avenues, queer themes in comics were often only found in underground publications or subtly intertwined and disguised in mainstream comics. Up until 1989 the Comics Code Authority did not allow any mention of homosexuality in comics, forbidding gay characters, themes, or innuendo in dialogue. Their justification for these restrictions was that comics are designated for children, and along with horror and violence, homosexuality was not a wholesome subject for children to be exposed to or raised on."

----------------------------------------

ARE YOU SERIOUS RIGHT NOW. 1989?!

Marriages vs. Civil Unions | Queer Media | Scoop.it

Although I feel that this illustration brings the message home for a lot of people who struggle to get 'it'... I still have qualms with LGBT struggle being compared to the civil rights movement. They are similar yes, but they are also very very different.
