For some reason, silliness abounds anytime treating gay folks like human beings comes up. The latest comes courtesy of this big, gay Oreo cookie — a “rainbow” cookie which Nabisco/Kraft Foods posted on their Facebook page to celebrate Gay Pride this weekend. The “rainbow” Oreo included the offensive, offensive caption, “Proudly support love! June 25 Pride,” which has predictably gotten customers screeching about a boycott. Fine with me, bigots! Boycott Oreos. More cookies for meeeeeeee.  [QueertyDaily News UK]

When I saw on Twitter on Tuesday night that the iconic writer Nora Ephron had passed away, I felt the sort of panic you feel when someone you know in real life is in trouble. Though I’d met Nora Ephron several times in the past few years at parties, I could hardly say I knew her. Yet through her books and articles, which I’d read throughout my 20s, I felt not only like I really knew her but like she was a guardian angel figure in my life, an older aunt or a mom’s best friend who was always there with quick wit and common sense. Moreso than other second-wave women I admire — Gloria Steinem, Toni Morrison, Jane Fonda, Joan Baez — I would ask myself in moments of career crisis, What did Nora Ephron do when she went through this same thing? Like me, Nora Ephron had feminist sensibilities, but didn’t run in strict feminist circles. Like me, she was ambitious and talented, but wanted a family life, too. And most importantly, like me, she’d worked as a newspaper reporter, but really blossomed writing about herself.

Victory For Baltimore “Crisis Pregnancy Centers”

Today's Lady News photo
  • “Crisis pregnancy centers” in Baltimore are having their First Amendment rights violated by being required to post notices that state they do not offer abortion referrals or birth control, an appeals court has ruled. “CPCs” are primarily run by anti-abortion activists, located near abortion clinics, and use trickery to dissuade women from terminating their pregnancies. Baltimore created an ordinance in 2009 telling them they must be transparent to women; however, the courts have repeatedly that ordinance is regulating CPCs’ speech. [Bloomberg]
