Sex Love and Labels: Coming to terms in the gay community…

Sex Love and LabelsA friend has started a new blog dedicated to talking about sex, love and labels in the gay community.  You can read his first post, It all started…, which was inspired from a Buzzfeed quiz and a tweet of all things that inquired, “What kind of bottom are you?”  I’ve also added this to my blogroll alongside many of my favorite blogs.

Indiana passes anti-LGBT legislation

discriminationIndiana’s State House earlier today approved the nation’s most anti-LGBT legislation.  According to the IndyStar, similar legislation was passed by the State Senate and Indiana’s Governor has said he intends to sign this into law – all under the guise of protecting religious freedom.  The legislation is modeled on a 22-year old federal law known as the Religious Freedom and Restoration Act. You may recall this act because it was what the US Supreme Court cited in allowing Hobby Lobby to opt out of the Affordable Care Act requirement that they cover contraceptives.

This sort of thing really ticks me off because I get so frustrated having these discussions over and over again. Legally barring a group from a business has haunting parallels to the civil rights struggles from the 1950s and 1960s not to mention more recent legislation organizations like GLAD, HRC and others have overturned in the courts for our community.

Shame on you Indiana – and shame on Indianans.  You may not agree with your state government but this is your home and your home makes me sick.
