Via JMG: Maddow On Marriage

"I feel that gay people not being able to get married for generations, forever, meant that we came up with alternative ways of recognizing relationships. And I worry that if everybody has access to the same institutions that we lose the creativity of subcultures having to make it on their own. And I like gay culture." - Rachel Maddow, speaking to the Hollywood Reporter.

Via JMG: POLL: Majority Supports Gays In Military

CBS News reports on their new poll:
Just a few weeks after the implementation of the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," a majority of Americans say they support gays and lesbians serving openly in the military, according to a new CBS News poll. According to the poll, 68 percent of Americans said they support gay and lesbians' rights to serve openly. Fifty percent said they "strongly" favored the idea. Moreover, although many national Republicans leaders were against the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," more Republicans surveyed favor the idea of allowing gays and lesbians to serve in the armed forces openly than oppose it.

Via AmericaBlogGay: Haters still trying to ban black, I mean gay, judges

There's no difference. If they say gay judges can't be fair on civil rights cases, then neither can black judges, or white judges for that matter, or Latino judges, or any other judge that has a race or a civil right, or a gender, national origin, religion, disability, or sexual orientation. I hear dogs make nice judges. 

The dehumanization never ends. There's always a new minority for the bigots to try to debase and degrade.
