Cathy McMorris-Rodgers (Rep-WA) voted no on the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, also more formally known as the Patrick Amendment to H.R. 5136, which would repeal the discriminatory policy banning openly gay service members from defending freedom and equality.
The folks at Parent Dish shared the results of their Mother’s Day poll.
My favorite question was:
Which celebrity would you most feel comfortable leaving your kids with?
And the answers, with over 10,000 people voting:
Ellen and Portia 31%
Jennifer Aniston 22%
Rachel Ray 20%
Angelina and Brad 18%
Even down under, a topic related to gay folks can cause quite a stir.
The Daily Telegraph in Australia reported on May 4th that
…a book which teaches children about lesbian mums getting pregnant using sperm donors is being pitched at kids as young as two. The controversial publication, ‘Where Did I Really Come From?’, also features a drawing of two gay men holding a baby in a chapter about surrogacy.
The publisher’s marketing spruiks the book, which includes in-depth descriptions of sexual intercourse, as suitable to be read to two-year-olds. It was being advertised at some Sydney book stores and inside the cover as being part of the New South Wales Attorney General Office’s Learn to Include program, the Daily Telegraph reported today.
I’ve been following this article on topix, and noted that the comments started referring to yours truly (uhm, that’s me). So I started watching the comments and ultimately found inspiration for this “Stupid Things People Say About Gays.” It also provided me with the unique opportunity to respond directly to causation.
