More Proof That The Obamas Are The Cutest Couple In All Of Cuteland

A friend sent me this video, of the President-Elect and the soon-to-be First Lady, doing a little happy dance together behind the scenes at one of his rallies, not knowing a camera was capturing the moment. At the end you can see Barack mouth in his Michelle’s ear, “I love you so much.” My friend wrote: “She’s a big cheerleader of his and keeps him in line at the same time…men flourish around that behavior. Behind every good man is an extraordinary woman. How can you watch that and ever, ever settle?” To which I thought, “Damn straight.” Keep reading »

Marriage Under Attack!

One of the biggest defenses used by people who are not in favor of gay marriage — even from those who don’t oppose civil unions or other gay rights issues — is that marriage is an institution that’s founded on connecting mothers and fathers to their children. Writes Jennifer Roback Morse for the National Review, in her article “8 Is Not Hate”:

“I view marriage as a gender-based institution that attaches mothers and fathers to each other and to their children. Those of us who support Proposition 8 believe that children deserve at least the chance to have a relationship with a mom and a dad. That isn’t hateful toward anyone.”

Righty-o! Using “the children” as a shield for bigotry seems like shifty parenting to me, but whatevs. When the divorce rate is at 50% in this country, marriage is already under attack — by straight people! Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Evan Rachel Wood No Longer Marilyn’s Lolita Fantasy

  • Evan Rachel Wood finally wisened up and dumped Marilyn Manson because he’s “controlling.” And not because he wears white contacts, masturbates on stage, and spikes his morning joe with absinthe? [Star]
  • So, Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling have broken up again. Okay, I’m sad for them, really, but maybe this IS a sign that Ryan is supposed to be my celebrity rebound?! [Contact Music]
  • So, Simon Cowell is basically the best ex ever. He gave his ex Terri Seymour $5 million to spend and another $4 million to buy her own place. [Perez Hilton]

    On The Ballot Update: Anti-Choice Measures Shot Down, Prostitution Still Illegal

    So, yesterday was a historic amazing day, with the first African-American winning the Presidency of the United States. It was also a bit of letdown, as it became clear that much of America still doesn’t like the idea of gay people getting married. But there was more good news! Three anti-choice measures failed! Amendment 48 in Colorado, which would have granted fertilized eggs fill rights, was rejected by 73% of voters; Measure 11 in South Dakota, which would have banned abortion save a very vague medical exception, was defeated; and Proposition 4 in California, which would have required parental notification, also didn’t pass.

    On another note, Proposition K, which would have decriminalized prostitution in San Francisco, lost by 16 percentage points. [WOW and Feministing] Keep reading »

    Levi Johnston, We Hardly Knew Ya

After the jump, some of our theories about what’s currently on the young lad’s agenda. Keep reading »

    DeAnna Pappas Uses Tired Old Excuse To Breakup With Jesse Csincsak

    They said it wouldn’t last…and it didn’t. Another “Bachelorette” pairing bit the dust this week, as Jesse Csincsak announced on the couple’s website that he and DeAnna Pappas had split, via YouTube video. Warning: It is kind of painful to watch. It seems DeAnna told Jesse that she loves him but isn’t “in love” with him. CLICHE ALERT! Apparently, “The Bachelorette” would only be physically affectionate with Jesse when the cameras were pointed at them, which seems like a pretty bad sign to me. Anyway, does this mean that DeAnnaAndJesse.com is going to be no more? [People] Keep reading »

    Why Does America Still Hate The Idea Of Gay People Getting Married?

    Last night was absolutely historical and I’m not going to hide my glee. Americans came out in record numbers and voted for a significant change in the White House and in Washington, with quite a few states (Ohio and Florida among them) going blue over their traditional red. As Barack Obama said last night, “That is the true genius of America — that America can change. Our union can be perfected. And what we have already achieved gives us hope for what we can and must achieve tomorrow.” Unfortunately, while there’s much to proud of today, regardless of whether you voted for Obama, there’s also a few disappointments. It appears that all but one of the gay marriage bans have passed, including, probably, Proposition 8 in California. Really America? We’re still that scared of gay people eating wedding cake? Really?

    Does The Twilight Series Promote Abstinence?

    I’m going to have to go with “Yes, sort of.” Being that Twilight‘s author, Stephanie Meyers, is a devout Mormon, I didn’t really expect to crack open the first book and get some vampire erotica. Add to that the fact that the books’ target audience is supposed to be teenagers, and you’re going to be disappointed if you wanted a blow-by-blow description of how blood suckers are in the sack. You’ll have to watch “True Blood” for that. Keep reading »
