Lest we forget, religious people are the best people:
A Durham man who led a religious group killed a 4-year-old boy who he feared was gay and a 28-year-old woman who couldn't have children and wanted to leave the group, prosecutors said in a court hearing Friday. Read below the fold...

Via Joe, I have to add to the viral here and link to No More Downlow TV. It's internet TV so I don't feel bad about doing that; no commercials, yo. I'll be spreading this around at other blogs with African-American writers and I hope you will too. DLism is a big problem in our communities of color, and it's time to change that.

Monday is National Coming Out Day. Joe has a terrific thread in which he asks his readers to share their own stories about when they did:
Who was the very first person you came out to? How'd they handle the news? What about your parents? And since they say coming out is a never-ending process, who was the most recent person you came out to? Read below the fold...

Heh, LB is in an undisclosed location, so he can't stop me. /evil superhero laugh/ Yes, I will impose Pete upon you. Deal, Youtube? Pete's only the greatest person to wear an eyepatch since, well, pick your 30s movie hero/ine. I don't love him as an old blonde, but in his weave days? Oh good lord. Boy George was a fag, to paraquote "The Usual Suspects" with all the ironic incorrectness I can muster. Flame, etc, away. Pete? The Real Man we all wanted to be. The Brave Gay Man when none of us could be. Read below the fold...

When will people understand, it's war. On us. On you. On your family. Because of what you are.
The next time you think, "CD is too strident and angry in her atheism and/or rhetoric against homophobia. She should be more patient and forgiving," think of this post.
Wars are not always fought on battlefields with guns and bombs, but people still die in them. Read below the fold...

When Proposition 8 was overturned, many of us in the lefty blogosphere rejoiced. But Obama? He's, like, totally bummin', dudez.
President Obama remains opposed to same-sex marriage despite a federal judge's decision to strike down a ban on such marriages, a top White House adviser said Thursday.
Senior adviser David Axelrod said the president supports "equality" for gay and lesbian couples, but did not address directly Obama's position on Wednesday's court ruling, which struck down as unconstitutional California's Proposition 8, a 2008 ballot initiative banning same-sex marriage in the state.

So my gf du jour won't be by until Sunday, and I'm stuck with a Working Friday Night anyway, due to...well, that doesn't matter. But I was reading one of Corrente's fabulous blogroll links, and the author was talking about the perils of dating online as an older woman. I guess that's me too, now! I'm a bit of an, um, well, [fill in your grandmother's favorite naughty word for bad grrls here]. Just out of silliness and curiosity, what dating sites do you use, and why? Read below the fold...

Papers won't protect you, Little Faggot. This one really, really resonates with me, as I could be in a similar situation myself someday and I'm currently hip-deep in dealing with "the county" and eldercare for which I'm responsible. They are like sharks, the social workers, nurses, therapists... They're always watching you, waiting for a person to make a "mistake," so they can bring in their guns and rearrange your life.

Via Raw Story:
The largest gay-rights advocacy group in New Jersey has announced it will no longer give money to the Democratic Party.
The move follows the state legislature's failure last month to legalize gay marriage and amid growing signs that the effort to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" is already faltering. Read below the fold...

Given that O's SOTU will propose a vile goulash of war, neo liberal austerity, abridgements of civil rights, foot dragging on climate change, meaningless tax cuts double talk on Wall Street bonuses, vague, but increasingly apparent gestures in the direction of cutting Medicare and Social Security, etc.
Why the hell is there absolutely no organizing or even discussion of massive protests against the slide into barbarism which O is willingly and enthusiastically presiding over? Read below the fold...
