I recently held a private induction ceremony in my mind for Eva Mendes to join the exclusive club of Celebrites Who Can Do No Fashion Wrong (other members include Diane Kruger and Jessica Alba).

As you can see from this sign spotted outside the Supreme Court yesterday, the actual gay agenda is much less scary than conservative fearmongers make it out to be. In fact, it looks exactly like most busy moms’ agendas, save for 15 minutes every evening dedicated to breaking up a traditional marriage. Hey, someone’s gotta keep those heterosexual divorce rates nice and high! [Mommyish]
